QUOTE
The usual understanding of anarchism as a left wing ideology does not take into account the neo-liberal "anarchism" championed by the likes of Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman and America's Libertarian Party, which couples social Darwinian right-wing economics with liberal positions on most social issues. Often their libertarian impulses stop short of opposition to strong law and order positions, and are more economic in substance (ie no taxes) so they are not as extremely libertarian as they are extremely right wing. On the other hand, the classical libertarian collectivism of anarcho-syndicalism ( libertarian socialism) belongs in the bottom left hand corner.


some of the questions in this test are a bit tricky, and arguably biased in wording.  still its a fun test.

Wow hugely biased.  If you get a mark even close to the right you must be deliberately trying.  

The way the questions are worded are a dead giveaway but im sure to them thats how they should be worded.  

Its almost like "do you like filthy, slimy, rich, capitalists" LOL.
