    Have you done much reading on Anarchism/ do you support a one specific school of thought?

    I have a few books from various schools of thought , but one thing I have noticed is a unifying factor between these schools is their supporter's predilection for massive amounts of facial hair.

    Concerning Anarchists, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon is very good IMO.

    OpenPolitics.ca

    I'm a DBCLN:

    This kind of post-revolutionary socialism tends to focus on the bread and butter issues of families, jobs, and hot button social issues.

    Dimensions
    This personality type combines these five perspectives
    democrat, big state, collectivist, idealist, narrow focus

    Like

    * awareness of one's own biases and preconceptions.
    * expanding the range of public insurance programs (employment insurance, old age pensions, medicare and disability programs).
    * government employment for its stability.
    * a strong sense of social responsibility.
    * thinking in terms of “us and them.”

    Dislike

    * elitism, or rule by experts.
    * tax cuts, particularly on high income individuals or corporations.
    * putting too much trust in statistics.
    * big changes which may introduce as many problems as they solve.
    Fun quiz results aside, I'm a Democrat. Some kind of mix of early 20th century populism and New Deal liberalism. Something old, something American.

    Yes, yes, he was someone I had in mind when referring to the facial hair.

    Interesting result.

    DSIRW - Anti-Nationalist
    this is one of the political personality types of the PPQ
    Description

    Not anarchists but something like it, anti-nationalists are sincerely disappointed by the current political world order. These thinkers care much more about quality of life than they do about patriotism, and are likely willing to make do with far less centralized/state power, if it makes empowering the individual more likely. Anti-nationalists take a transformative view of government, favoring anarchism or democratic reform. They are likely to develop plans for a new world order?.

    Dimensions
    This personality type combines these five perspectives
    democrat,small state?, individualist, rationalist, wide focus

    Likes and dislikes
    like:

    * the “wisdom of crowds”.
    * less interference in the free market
    * not accepting limits to the upper end of their success
    * competition, and facing challenges
    * quality of life
    * governments working from a set of logical rules.

    dislike:

    * being bound by scriptures, loosely defined rights, or old conventions.
    * single issue politics
    * a program of incremental changes.
    * temporary fixes.
    * identity politics?
    * territorial behavior



    I have scored "Smithian" on this before.

    I like geolibertarians' ideas. A mix of totally free market + lack of rent from private property alone.

    Personally libertarianism would be best for me. But in reality I'm just an opposition kind of guy. I like to bash whoever is in power.

    My thoughts exactly!
