    I’m left, non-stateist (which they are calling Libertarian–I don’t like that term because it’s been coopted by people very un-Libertarian).

    Apparently, I lean pretty close to the anarchy side (on the left).

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I totally agree– the “libertarian” label (as people tend to use it these days) has been twisted so severely that it hardly resembles its original meaning at all. It’s troubling.

    I’m left-liberatarian. Basically right smack-dab in the middle of the square (near the Dalai Lama). FWIW, I personally identify as a socialist.

    I think it’s mostly accurate, but it could be made better by the addition of a “don’t know”/”unsure”/”don’t care” indication for the questions. And some of the questions need to be split up (ex. the one about taxpayers supporting theatres/museums — for me, they’re two different things; museums are educational and some exhibits should be supported, while theatres for the most part are for entertainment and should be privately funded IMO).

    I’m pretty far left but right in the middle of authoritarian/libertarian. I remember in high school thinking I was a libertarian so I guess my views have changed.
