The Ultimate "What type of Libertarian" Quiz.

There are many rooms in the grand house of libertarianism, and each one has its own economic, social, philosophical, and ethical values. I've divided libertarianism into ten categories: Classical Liberals, Anarcho-Capitalists, Paleolibertarians, Austrian Consequentialists, Individualist Libertarians, Bleeding Heart Libertarians, Conservatarians, Nozickian Minarchists, Post-Libertarians/Neoreactionaries, and Libertarian Market Socialist Anarchists/Individualist Anarchists.

This quiz will hopefully give you some insight into what kind of libertarian you really are; read the questions carefully and take care to answer what you really think, not what is the simple ideological auto-response to a question. Please give me feedback, and follow my Instagram, @1689movement.

  7. Now for welfare. Though it's been included earlier in this quiz, this question focuses on the reason why or why not. This question deals with the SHORT RUN; it would be very hard for a president to get rid of all welfare at once, and so, this question presupposes some kind of welfare state. What type of welfare, given that there has to be something in the short run, should the government give and why?
  8. The last of these big, dividing issues: the macro-economy itself. Let's say there is a recession: Keynesian economics dictates an increase in government spending and an increase in the money supply, to increase consumption. What should the government do?
