     My #1 is:   Neolibertarian
The government is very misguided or just stupid in enacting too many laws and regulations that negatively affect our lives. You favor repealing these laws but in a reform-minded manner. Overall, the Libertarians are too doctrinaire and need to focus on arguments people acare about. Further, NAFTA and the WTO are useful, and the Libertarians absolutely must have an aggressive foreign policy. Isolationism is a failed track, it's important to fight a vigorous war on terror, possibly including the war in Iraq, to defend liberty. Republicans, Republican Liberty Caucus, some Libertarians, many independents.    Books, etc.    
   My #2 is:   Center-North Libertarian
You are moderately libertarian - where 'north' indicates a test position that's neither left nor right but upwards. You believe most of the same things as mainstream libertarians, but not as stridently, not as radically. You think that libertarian policy will come from pragmatic arguments and incrementalism. Some Republicans/Democrats, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #3 is:   Mainstream Libertarian
You basically adhere to the platform of the LP, decry both social and economic tyranny, oppose most wars flat out, want to eliminate NAFTA but enact free trade, and want the constitution strictly enforced. You favor a doctrinaire, philosophical approach to libertarian politics. Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #4 is:   Right-Libertarian
The government is run by socialists and fools who are depriving us of private property and gun rights while protecting minor and sometimes inappropriate freedoms elsewhere. You emphasize economic freedom and assume that social freedom will take care of itself. You are mixed on foreign wars, pro-free trade, and want doctrinaire campaign strategy. Constitution Party, Republican Liberty Caucus, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #5 is:   Anarchocapitalist
The state is corrupt, a vile creature that exploits everyone for the sake of an elite. Eliminate the state and you will solve the problem. Anti-war, anti-NAFTA, very doctrinaire. Some Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #6 is:   Left-Libertarian
The government is a huge threat to social liberty, but on economics it must intervene to redistribute land equitably and end the reign of corporations. You oppose almost all wars and probably desire a very doctrinaire political style based on rhetoric. Greens, Democratic Freedom Caucus, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #7 is:   Paleolibertarian
The government is largely run by Yankee liberals that think they know best for everybody, they want to take away guns, nationalize industry, bash the Confederacy, take away religion, and declare lots of wars to expand the state. NAFTA and WTO are corrupt but unregulated free trade is good. Extreme and doctrinaire politics usually best. LewRockwell.com, Constitution Party, Republicans, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.    
   My #8 is:   Non-Libertarian
Liberty does not outweigh the other interests of the state or the group. Democrats, Republicans, Greens, others.    Books, etc.

You believe most of the same things as mainstream libertarians, but not as stridently, not as radically. You think that libertarian policy will come from pragmatic arguments and incrementalism. Some Republicans/Democrats, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #2 is: Anarchocapitalist
The state is corrupt, a vile creature that exploits everyone for the sake of an elite. Eliminate the state and you will solve the problem. Anti-war, anti-NAFTA, very doctrinaire. Some Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #3 is: Neolibertarian
The government is very misguided or just stupid in enacting too many laws and regulations that negatively affect our lives. You favor repealing these laws but in a reform-minded manner. Overall, the Libertarians are too doctrinaire and need to focus on arguments people acare about. Further, NAFTA and the WTO are useful, and the Libertarians absolutely must have an aggressive foreign policy. Isolationism is a failed track, it's important to fight a vigorous war on terror, possibly including the war in Iraq, to defend liberty. Republicans, Republican Liberty Caucus, some Libertarians, many independents.    Books, etc.   
  My #4 is: Mainstream Libertarian
You basically adhere to the platform of the LP, decry both social and economic tyranny, oppose most wars flat out, want to eliminate NAFTA but enact free trade, and want the constitution strictly enforced. You favor a doctrinaire, philosophical approach to libertarian politics. Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #5 is: Right-Libertarian
The government is run by socialists and fools who are depriving us of private property and gun rights while protecting minor and sometimes inappropriate freedoms elsewhere. You emphasize economic freedom and assume that social freedom will take care of itself. You are mixed on foreign wars, pro-free trade, and want doctrinaire campaign strategy. Constitution Party, Republican Liberty Caucus, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #6 is: Paleolibertarian
The government is largely run by Yankee liberals that think they know best for everybody, they want to take away guns, nationalize industry, bash the Confederacy, take away religion, and declare lots of wars to expand the state. NAFTA and WTO are corrupt but unregulated free trade is good. Extreme and doctrinaire politics usually best. LewRockwell.com, Constitution Party, Republicans, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #7 is: Left-Libertarian
The government is a huge threat to social liberty, but on economics it must intervene to redistribute land equitably and end the reign of corporations. You oppose almost all wars and probably desire a very doctrinaire political style based on rhetoric. Greens, Democratic Freedom Caucus, some Libertarians.    Books, etc.   
  My #8 is: Non-Libertarian
Liberty does not outweigh the other interests of the state or the group. Democrats, Republicans, Greens, others.    Books, etc.

About half the questions on here made me think the man who authored it would come out more intelligent if you whacked his skull off (though I would disagree with such a remedy on moral grounds Tongue ), but still my result is:

1 Center-North Libertarian
2 Neolibertarian
3 Left-Libertarian
4 Mainstream Libertarian
5 Non-Libertarian
6 Anarchocapitalist
7 Paleolibertarian
8 Right-Libertarian

You bitched after the first two of these, why bother to continue?  Do you like to do things you find stupid?  Or do you just enjoy complaining about things on the internet? (I certainly do)

Who doesn't!?

My comment in the silly Socialist test is years old, btw Wink and anyways this test was better than the Conservative one. At least this guy had the first clue about the obvious what-not-to-dos on a test like that.

Depends on your viewpoint. I just thought it would be interesting to see where non-libertarians would place on the libertarian spectrum. I think it's an interesting concept.

...as a concept. The problem is with the loaded questions and the test designer's unquestioned assumptions... as with every one of these tests, of course. In the case of Libertarians, the issue is usually a warped and stunted definition of "liberty" unquestioningly treated as the term's only definition.

I think I got what you're saying now: this test tries to trick people into selecting what the author wants them to select. This problem is actually pretty common in many tests I've taken online.
Plus, this is a test about libertarians by a libertarian, of course there are going to be questions that act like the state is evil (which it is, get used to it) because most radical libertarians are borderline anarchists. Expecting this test not to be loaded with anti-state rhetoric is like expecting not to feel pain at the dentist office.

No, you read me wrong. Try again. (if at first you don't succeed, try and try again...)

Oh, and: Any state is as evil as the people of which it is made up and the actions they commit. Tongue

I was harsher than was strictly necesary in my first comment, btw. That may make for comprehension difficulties.

"Free markets, economic interaction and profit motives are indispensable to liberty." What exactly is a "free market"? The thing as theoretically described in economics 101 books is not something that ever has existed or even ever could. "Economic interaction"? Between whom? What kind of economic interaction? Highway robbery is an economic interaction. Some forms of economic interaction are obviously indispensable to any human society, but "liberty" hardly enters the picture. Maybe he meant the unlimited right to economic interactions? Or to economic interactions approved of by all concerned (but those are very many - far more, in major economic transactions, than are given a hearing right now)? Similarly, "profit motives" are just a part of human nature. Acceptance of the fact that most people are in it with a profit motive is a necessary precondition to designing a working, sensible government program. "Liberty" has little to do with it.

Now how the hell do I answer the question with options like "I agree" or "I disagree" or "No opinion"?

You're right, this test leaves alot open to interpretation. I'll be honest some of the questions are pretty vague. Like question #14: "Abraham Lincoln's incompetence is responsible for the War of Northern Aggression." For me I can't agree, disagree, or have no opinion to because I believe that both sides to an extent were responsible for the Civil War and both guilty of moral failure.
