What type of libertarian are you?

I have divided libertarians into four main groups: purist libertarians, pragmatic libertarians, paleolibertarians, and bleeding heart libertarians. The differences between these mainly lie in their means of achieving a free society and the grounds which they support it.

This quiz will tell you which type of libertarian you are. Please answer the questions to the best of your ability to find out if you are purist, pragmatic, paleo, or bleeding heart libertarian.
