The Zero Aggression Project wants you to discover your “political conscience.”
The PCT (Political Conscience Test) was devised by Jim Babka and Perry Willis. It’s a product of the Zero Aggression Project. It will show you how your personal conscience aligns with the political spectrum.
The chart on which the results are displayed is called a Nolan Chart, named after its creator, the late David Nolan. Nolan was a libertarian, and throughout the 1970s and 80s libertarians used Nolan Charts in conjunction with quizzes. Lots of experiments in “quiz design” were run during this era.
Then, the late Marshall Fritz led an effort through his organization, The Advocates for Self-Government, first to standardize the Quiz, then to expand the ways it was transmitted. This version was called, “The World’s Smallest Political Quiz.” They used business cards, which were widely circulated. In the mid-90s, they put The Quiz on the Internet. As of 2017, more than 23 million have taken that version of The Quiz.

We call this process “conscience building.” But we also want to stoke your creativity, as in…
