Thanks for doing this!

The text file results look a little weird because the ordering of the options is inconsistent. If you look at, say, the Anarchist views on the Great Stagnation, you see that it goes:

Believe, No strong opinion, Strongly doubt, Strongly believe, Doubt

When a more natural ordering would be something like:

Strongly doubt, Doubt, No strong opinion, Believe, Strongly believe

(If you're scanning a particular question with ctrl-f, it's useful to be able to always see things in the same order.)
