Summer is for quizzes: What kind of libertarian are you?

So on this one, you can discover (according to the quiz’s authors) what kind of libertarian you are. Apparently, I’m a “small ‘l’ libertarian.” leaning towards “agorism.” Whatever the hell that means.

 

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.

  1. I got "Miniarchist".

    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.

  2. You Scored as Anarcho-capitalist
    Anarcho-capitalists are libertarians who oppose the state entirely and propose to have a free market in the provision of security and arbitration. The term anarcho-capitalism derives from Murray Rothbard to describe a stateless society based on the principles of laissez-faire or the philosophy in support of such a proposition. Anarcho-capitalists may tend to still associate more with the political right and make use of the political process, unless they are agorists or left-libertarians at the same time.

  3. You Scored as Agorist

    Agorists are market anarchists or anarcho-capitalists (often former anarcho-capitalists) who have moved in the direction of rejecting participation in the political process in favor of more direct action in the form of economic secession and civil disobedience in general, with particular emphasis on making use of black or grey markets. Agorism could be viewed as a radicalized version of anarcho-capitalism, or a radicalized outcome of taking it in new directions. Agorists tend to be more closely associated with the traditional anarchist left than many anarcho-capitalists.
