    I think this poll will be very one sided. :grinning:

    How so? haha. I suppose since intuitive are the "librarian" types, especially INFJs. Minarchism is more of an STP / STJ kind of thing

    But seriously, moderate leftist policies were proven to be the most effective overall. I don't think there can be much debating that.

    My country has free education and healthcare and generally quite a large public sector. Conversely, also quite a high tax rate. I think the trade off is worth it. The public debt is not out of control (I think it's around 70% of GDP), but it will obviously expand once the crisis hits again (it went from 30% to 80% post 2008).

    Although I am not sure completely free universities is the best policy.

    But interestingly enough, Thomas Jefferson was an INFJ (according to IDR labs website), and he supported minarchism and supported states over federal government. It was thought Thomas Jefferson had Aspergers. People on the autism spectrum like living in their own worlds. I suppose private property is great if one has the fortune to own one's own library, but most people can't afford to. So I see public libraries the only viable option for most people. Although I often buy books from bookstores/amazon. But there's no way I could ever own a gigantic library.

    The idea of private property I find strange, especially in today's age, when we have collectivized workplaces like corporations and government and unions. I think ideally everyone, especially introverts, would like to just not do traditional work and just do their own creative pursuits from their own homes.

    I'm not sure the Jefferson of today would be a minarchist. (Even less a monarchist, of course.)

    I prefer low-taxes, if possible, and open market policies for things like commodities.

    Everyone prefers low taxes. But there's always a trade-off. Lower taxes can only mean low fiscal spending in other areas (infrastructure, pensions, education etc.) or unsustainable primary deficit.

    But I don't know how you Americans do things. It's all confusing up there.

    Americans have this fanatical aversion to taxation, even when it's reasonable. :laughing:

    Don't know anything about economics but I like political systems with accountability. Which system has the most accountability? If you can't root out troublemakers then it's all pointless since corruption, even an extreme degree of it, is inevitable.

    Well, I should say democracy with a strong, healthy civil society that is, if possible, as independent as it can be from government funding.

    Accountability goes hand in hand with transparency. A well-educated population also, to have the tools to understand why accountability is important and be able to demand it.

    Check out the concept of polyarchy which according to Robert Dahl is the best possible system.
