Which I guess makes me perfect as I am leaning towards socialism yet have a balanced view on authority
I don't think they asked very balanced questions on authority. I found a lot of questions quite strange. E.g.
All authority should be questioned.
I agreed, because the alternative is to allow acceptance of at least some arbitrary authority. That doesn't mean there aren't authorities I respect.
A significant advantage of a one-party state is that it avoids all the arguments that delay progress in a democratic political system.
I had to agree with this, as it is the main advantage of a one-party state. I did not get the opportunity to explain that nevertheless the disadvantages outweigh the advantages by a substantial degree in my opinion.
Although the electronic age makes official surveillance easier, only wrongdoers need to be worried.
The second part appears to be a question about the degree of surveillance, not the ease with which it can be done.
In a civilised society, one must always have people above to be obeyed and people below to be commanded.
This personalises the question ("one must"), so doesn't make sense. There cannot always be people above to be obeyed unless there are infinitely many people.
Plus the sudden rush of religious questions towards the end. If you've been raised religiously then you see religious institutions as an authority. If you have been raised securarly then it quite possibly hasn't even been suggested to you that any religious body is an authority.
Then there were questions which seemed to invoke bigger questions than the authors intended - although I may have been unnecessarily second guessing. For example, on the questions about non-marital sex, homosexual relationships, etc:
What goes on in a private bedroom between consenting adults is no business of the state.
Taken literally this pulls in questions about euthanasia, GBH and even whether things like conspiracy should be individual crimes and as a result whether you should be able to arrest people for planning a crime before they have a chance to carry it out.
