Recalibrating compass again

Back in February 2004, I completed the 'Political Compass' assessment of my political views.  I repeated the exercise in January 2005, then largely forgot about it until the URL was circulated by one of my colleagues this morning, and I tried it again.

First time, my position was -2.50, -4.87, which became -4.62, -3.90 within the year. Today it's -5.38, -4.46, a further unexpected drift to the economic left (independent of social 'left'), towards collectivism (pro- state economic intervention). However, as I said last time, that may reflect my support of state provision for those in need, without being remotely in favour of state regulation of individuals' actions. I still feel the state should exist to serve individuals, never the reverse.
