|| You scored as Utilitarianism. Your life is guided by the principles of Utilitarianism: You seek the greatest good for the greatest number.
"The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong."
"Whenever the general disposition of the people is such, that each individual regards those only of his interests which are selfish, and does not dwell on, or concern himself for, his share of the general interest, in such a state of things, good government is impossible."
--John Stuart Mill

Oh well, at least I was given one which believed in Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Political Thought, Emancipation of Women and Equality before the Law. Still, I think it misses the fact that Motive always needs to be questioned, where as Utilitarianism ignores this and just looks at the ends. I personally don't think the "Ends Justifies the Means", where as Utilitarianism just ignores this altogether. Still, there is a lot of good which I think can come from a Utilitarianism view of the world ... it just needs some bumps ironed out. That's probably why I didn't score 100% on it. Still, my Utilitarianism was equal to my Existentialism. Not sure I like being either of those ... what would Jesus do? :-)
