Huh. They changed the second axis.

And added ten more questions.

Huh, so they did. Didn't make a huge amount of difference to my results.

Not much of a difference to me, though I'm now more of a revolutionary than I used to be.

I guess, given that 98% of the horseshoe is now considered to be "facists who should be smacked with a bike lock" this makes me literally hitler or something?

Snarky comments aside, that actually looks pretty reasonable to me.

One criticism I've seen of it is that it assumes that there are certain positions only people on one end of a spectrum hold; for instance, it assumes that progressivism and distrust of corporations are directly correlated, when in fact plenty of conservatives are mightily distrustful of corporations.

Wasn't this same issue also present in that 'classic' Political Compass test?

The classic political compass was also built for people in USA and many of the questions there (and some in this one) simply do not match politics in other countries. The way religous or gun related questions are phrased for example.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeah. Basically american left and right are coalitions, not actually positions based on coherent ideology (the hell does Christianity have to do with capitalism, for instance), and elsewhere lines will be drawn differently.

"Do you support GUN CONTROL or do you accept that the 2nd amendment is a universal right created by GOD ALMIGHTY" ...Well gee, I think the 2nd amendment in Finnish constitution has something to do with building stuff on your own property and I think there's like 3 different questions mixed into this one, but because I support some sort of regulation of firearms this random test on the internet has now labeled me as a communist and atheist.

...That's not too much of an exaggeration with some of these tests.

I do recall the gun control question is "Gun ownership should be prohibited for those without a valid reason". In other words, "gun ownership should be prohibited to those who you think should be prohibited from owning guns". Stellar wording there, guys.

"Gun ownership should be prohibited for those without a valid reason" implies that you need a reason, which is not generally something we demand of people before we let them own things.
