    Parliament had to forge Jame II's abdication, side with a foreign invader (there are only two things I can't stand in this world: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch) with a shabby post dated invitation and then pass over fifty + legitimate candidates to get the fat German rent-a-Kings on the throne.

    Yeah, and today you have a Saxon queen on the throne, of the Wettin dynasty.

    The 9 axis thing (long version) seems more accurate. Pls disregard the whole unitarian thing. My country doesn't have 'states' so it's hard to answer questions about them.

    Here’s a 9axes and a politiscales test from March.

    The politiscales test seems similar to the 8-9 axes tests but also appeared to produce results with very different connotations compared to the results of the other tests.

    Not really Ponti. 9 axes seems much more American - focused to me and more arbritary. The Politiscales ones seems the best of the bunch IMO.

    Here are my results: https://www.politiscales.net/en_US/r...&j0=33&reli=67



    I would say it paints me right: Conservative, moderate-rightwing.

    I'm spotting a theme here...


    I'm finding in these tests, there are definite lackings. For example, I'm struggling to see if the tests identify someone who is conciliatory and looks to build consensus versus someone who seeks advantage through entrenchment - a key political definer in the modern era. I also find there are far too many "it depends" questions where I have no choice but to rate them as neutral, even though I might have strong feelings.

    @Abdülcemid I: Little known fact, Phillipe Pétain was also the national hero who held Verdun. For much of WW2 he was recognized as the de-facto leader of France, including the allied powers who courted him to stay neutral.

    Here are mine, but the meaning of the results are less clear to me. By European standards I'm probably considered a neo-fascist.
