At around this time, in accordance with the OP and with EP8.2 having settled somewhat, I was intent on getting to work on EP9, starting – as usual – by gathering feedback, not least through polling.

Re: Political Compass

It's about values, not policy, though. Try to focus on your reaction instead of overanalyzing things.

Your quote of choice's more significant flaw, to me, is that it's a very leading question, in juxtaposing the two alternatives; I imagine that most respondents were inclined to favor serving humanity .....

Political Compass

I think that a few of the questions are unfortunately worded, but the result should be representative enough. It might be interesting to share results and see others' rating, who don't mind sharing, themselves:

As a result of Cuckoo's oddly-timed and relentless propaganda, I am continuing to look into the state of Indians, post-EP8.1, where the civilization has now seen the following significant changes, from EP7(.1):

– The Rajput gets +30% attack from "Dravidian Martial Arts" instead of +15%.
