Nanning Creek Plus An Ideology Quiz
Look out Times- Standard! Verbena, on the Redwood Peace and Justice Center e-mail list, followed up with Kim Starr's e-mail to some of the folks at your paper with a call for more letters to be sent requesting coverage of the Nanning Creek Demonstrations. So, not only will Driscoll and Winkler possibly see their inboxes full of more requests for coverage, readers might well see an influx of letters to the editor regarding the same.
I wonder how effective such a call to action over that e-mail list will be? I'm sure it might generate a few letters to the editor outside of those that might have been sent anyway. Sometimes such efforts can be disappointing. I remember being relieved back when Paul Gallegos was running for D.A. Someone sent notice of some fundraiser/ meeting in support of Gallegos over the RPJC e-mail list, urging everyone to attend. After the event took place the same guy writes to the list chastising everyone cause only a handful of people showed up. Good. I'm not alone, thought I.
Years ago I sent notice of a presidential poll out over the county LP e-mail list. I sent it out to 35 people, or so. Neat thing about that poll was you could go back and see how the people in your county voted. I went back after a few days and there were only seven votes from Humboldt, all of them for LP candidate, Harry Browne. Boy, pretty pathetic response, as all one had to do was click on the link and cast a vote. Oh well.
This quiz is interesting because, based on how you answer all the questions, it classifies you as not only liberal, conservative or libertarian ( plus others, like "Radical"), it also has qualifiers added to each of those. For instance, I scored Paleolibertarian this time just like I did when I took it before. It then lists the other categories you fit in with from closest to furthest. For example, here's how I scored today:
#6: Third Way
So, I scored as a Paleolib with Leftlib being my runner up (which surprises me) and I'm furthest away from being Liberal. Funny thing is, that order can change just from changing one answer from Yes to Not Sure. I took that quiz three or four times years ago when I was playing with it and each time the order would change at least a little, although I think I scored Paleolib for number one except maybe once despite my different answers. My answers seemed to always change a little depending on what mood I was in at the time.
I didn't notice this morning whether they still had a link to a page of descriptions of the various ideologies. Seems to me they used to have something like that on their page. But, if you fill in the blank with your e-mail address, they send you your score with links to web sites that supposedly reflect the different ideologies. Whatever. Take the test and see how you do and let us all know in the comments section
