Do you ever find yourself sitting around, wondering, "hey what am I going to do today?" Well wonder no more. Thanks to the magic of the world wide web you can take this free Libertarian test to see just how much you actually love freedom.

(Me? I'm soft-core, and I'm fine with that.)

I scored 85

I scored 49. There were some questions that should have been asked that weren't.

Some words needed defining, if they had I mat or may not have gotten a different score.

Pure entertainment! Part II gets a little silly, while Part III is fantasy land for anarchists. BTW I scored 43.

I scored 65. Too many yes/no alternatives to suit me.

147 I rock.

My score was 90, but I do not see it as accurate. The reason being that I found it difficult if not impossible to answer the American specific questions. Too bad there is not a Canadian equivalent which would give a more accurate score. I admit that there were even questions I could not fully understand due to the unfamiliar American context. And no, I am not anti-American before anyone tries that one.

51-90 points: You are a medium-core libertarian, probably self-consciously so. Your friends probably encourage you to quit talking about your views so much.

Yep...to many USA based questions, but oh well...I always new I was a soft core Libertarian! lol

Score, 49

I guess I'm not yet ready to turn the world over to the 35-40 somethings who score at the high end of the inventory :)

Score = 72

Expected, but too bad the test is a bit digital, I mean often there are more valid options that just yes/no.

Check out this one instead:

Smaller and better.

89 for me.

It would have been higher were it not for the need for the western nation states to pool collective resources to preserve the core elements of democracy, reason and freedom as a counterweight to the medievalism, dictatorship and tyranny of Islam, Russia, China and others.

But this collectivism, meant to preserve western thought in turn creates the internal rise of poisonous socialist thinking. A delicate equilibrium that is presently badly out of balance.

Holy crap! You guys must be flaming anarchists, or something! :)

Posted by: Markalta | 2007-09-27 9:55:57 AM


Well said.
You encapsulated my reasoning there.

But my score was 49.
If not for the threat that the Statist/Collectivists pose against individual Liberty my score would have been a lot higher.

Imagine where we'd be now if we had Spooner's America in 1939.

...dang! I failed...got 17 points.

And here I thought picking "C" when in doubt worked like in high school and college.
