    yeah- but there's so many other threads for the politics

    If that's the case though- you guys sure are fans of a scary society

    My score is 16, some of those questions seemed pretty scary to have as actually political views.

    i got a low 47, but I think these items don't sample very well from comprehensive libertarianism. It didn't ask a single question about gun control, for example

    17.

    Honestly, by their description, 17 might be a little too high.
    And I think that some of these ideas are insane.
    How can people say yes to them?

    Bryan Caplan is (was?) a George Mason economist. He also was a pretty hardcore Austrian School economist, but is now a neoclassical free market advocate. I imagine that his view of libertarianism is fairly parochial to the economic sphere. Not my flavor, but the world needs economists, no matter what Harry Truman thought.

    Anarcho-capitalism is a pretty radical philosophy, and Caplan was a fan of Murray Rothbard, who really didn't see much need for a state at all. Intellectually, it can be stimulating to read someone posit a world with private courts, law, etc., but anarcho-capitalism is far outside the libertarian mainstream, which is more popular than most people would give it credit for (see most people's scores on the test), but still not mainstream in terms of modern American politics. Caplan actually points out how libertarian ideas are very popular when you relate them to people, but they recoil when it means cutting or eliminating their favorite government programs/actions. Like. "Should we lower taxes?" always gets near-universal positives, but "Should we cut spending on the poor/the military/foreign air/whatever?" gets unfavorable views. Hence "irrational" viewpoints. Unless you're a Bush-ite Republican, and you think that cutting taxes magically increases revenue.

    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.
