Well, I am ambidextrous...

The result of a quiz I took, linked from LibertarianChristians.com (as a Christian I consider myself pretty conservative - at least from an evangelical standpoint)



You Scored as Left-libertarian

Left-libertarians are libertarians that are more associated with the anti-authoritarian left than other libertarians. Left-libertarians can be minarchists, but many are anarchists who are in alliance with the anarchist left. Left-libertarians are more critical of conservatism and corporatism than most libertarians. They view libertarians in a historical context that is interconnected with the history of the left.

The very thought of you being in any way described as "left" is hilarious.

I had to follow your lead, of course (that more or less sums up our relationship), and found out I am an agorist. I'm not sure that's really accurate, I think it's largely based on my complete ignorance of the Libertarian Party. But then, that's more or less what one would expect from an agorist.

I expected to score closer to my default political position -- minarchist. I guess my willingness to acknowledge that some people prefer communal arrangements pushed me to the left. Of course, Bastiat was a "leftist" in the original sense: one who sat on the left side of the French assembly.

As for you, agorist seems a good fit. The Libertarian Party is not worth knowing much about.

For what it is worth, I took the quiz, (here is the link)

You Scored as "Small L" libertarian
Small "L" libertarians are libertarians, usually of the minarchist variety, who do not particularly identify with the official Libertarian Party or are not active in it, or may even actively oppose it. Small l libertarians are likely to view the Libertarian Party as moving in too moderate of a direction. Small l libertarian may tend to be more radical than many official Libertarian Party members. Some small l libertarians eventually transition to agorism, a completely apolitical approach to libertarianism.

I was chuckling over the quiz tonight with a retired economics professor friend. He was not as surprised as I was with the result.

Merry Christmas Chuck!

I was a little surprised. I guess it's time to get out of the bomb shelter and start throwing them.
