opinion polling

First spotted on Boing Boing where one can find other vexillographic specimens which do seem to be uniquely designed according to ones answers but I am unsure how true to heraldic principles the elements are, Politiscales presents users with a battery of one hundred and seventeen questions (rather long for a survey but it is comprehensive and you get a sense of commitment to plough through) and at the end, analyses one’s political leanings, rating one’s outlooks on globalism versus nativism, revolution versus reformism, etc. I could not tell if afterwards whether or not one could tweak their scores and have a slightly different flag and national motto assigned to them. You should give it a whirl and share your results. I don’t know if I’m satisfied with mine—it does not seem particularly woke nor the banner of a vaguely Jesus-y bon vivant that I might be described as. I think I’ll give it another go and attend more closely to the questions and think about how views-expressed can be reified as a standard-bearer.
