Pretty cool quiz... although there could have been some more questions in regards to the role and purpose of government, as well as some more questions on drug legalization and other social issues. I still consider myself to be a Conservative Libertarian, which in my opinion is a Conservative without all of the religion added in to dictate my beliefs on various social issues. For example, I am a Conservative that could care less about gay marriage. If Bob and Steve want to get married then who cares. Anyway, here's my score.....

Paleo-libertarian 83%
Left-libertarian 67%
Minarchist 67%
Agorist 58%
Anarcho-capitalist 50%
"Small L" libertarian 33%
Neo-libertarian 33%
Libertarian socialist 8%

I wasn't clear on quite all of these, but can't disagree much with my result:

You Scored as Minarchist
Minarchists are libertarians who advocate a strictly limited government and usually a more decentralized form of it. Minarchists may vary in the degree to which they think that government should be limited, although the bare bones position is essentially nothing more than police, courts and the military. Minarchists tend to think that some minimum level of government is a necessary evil, or at least an inevitability. The contemporary libertarian movement in America is dominantly minarchist, although it has had a long history of dialogue and debate between minarchist and anarchist libertarians.

libertarian socialism is much different than the brand of socialism that many are aware of...

basically it's the belief that no state, or business for that matter, should have authority over the individual or property... what makes it socialism is that they hold the belief that no individual should hold property to the detriment of others... instead power should decentralized and resources be allocated and regulated through direct democracy and workers councils...

Damn, I was really hoping this thread would take off...

I think a lot of people consider themselves libertarian who don't really know the roots of the movement... or the many different types there are...

I also think there are more people who would consider themselves libertarian if they realized all the different flavors, and what it really means....

a little education would be awesome...

yes...

although the term conservative has kind of been bastardized much like the term liberal...

but I believe the term you are looking for is either paleo or neolibertarian...

Paleo-libertarians are influenced by and in alliance with paleoconservatives and are likely to be former paleoconservatives themselves. Paleo-libertarians are strongly associated with the "old right". Some may tend to be social or cultural conservatives. Paleo-libertarians tend to differ with other libertarians particularly in terms of their tendency to support immigration restriction and strong border security. One of their primary targets of criticism, if not the main target of their criticism, is globalism.

Great quiz, man. Just shows you how uniting libertarianism is. People of all side of the proverbial fence can share goals within its constructs.

Results:
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 hsitorical context that is interconnected with the history of the left.

I appreciate the clarification... I am new to the Libertarian ideology, as in I have become more and more Libertarian over the last 4 or 5 years. Before that I thought that I was a Republican, fortunately I saw the error in my ways :-)

That's kind of the point of this quiz if you ask me... many of us may hold views which put us strongly in one category or the other, but it also shows us that we hold views upon which we can compromise with others... thus we can identify ourselves both individually and as a larger group of libertarians without letting go of the core principles in which we're rooted...

I had a tie breaker question at the end; nonetheless, I scored 100% on both minarchist and left-libertarian. Here are my results:

You Scored as Minarchist:

Minarchists may vary in the degree to which they think that government should be limited, although the bare bones position is essentially nothing more than police, courts and the military.

Neo-libertarian 0%

I like these kinds of quizzes. I had never heard of some of these ideologies beforehand. Thanks for sharing!

"Small L" libertarian - 75%

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 have to agree with this in the fact that I do not consider my self a part of the Libertarian party. I personally feel like Ralph Nader/Ron Paul would be a good president/vice president. So I think the progressive-libertarian category would fit me best.

No doubt! This thread (and quiz) really excites me. I've known for a while that libertarianism is a uniting force but... daaaaaamn. This is, like, across the freakin' map!

I'm really hoping this is what it's looking like.
