On further consideration, I think the problem is with the compass itself and I wouldn't trust it for assessing 20th/21st century politics either... All sci-fi is a (intentional or not) metaphor for the present anyway, and there's nothing particularly implausible or inconsistent about Hudson's beliefs for a 21st century political figure, they're just not what the compass says they are. (for a bit more fun, Antal: econ -5, soc -1; Winters: econ -1, soc -3. Yeah, right.)Did I commit a grievous RP sin by allowing the morals of my current time influence the present time of the game? Kind of like how a lot of Commanders have surprisingly good knowledge of the late 20th Century?
