This is the Libertarian Purity Test, which is intended to
measure how libertarian you are. It isn't intended to be any sort of
McCarthyite purging device -- just a form of entertainment, hopefully
thought-provoking. I like it a lot better than the more famous "World's
Shortest Political Quiz" because I haven't stated the questions with any
intent to give an upward bias to a test-taker's score, and because it
gives a clearer breakdown between hard and soft-core libertarians.
Enjoy, suggest your friends try it out, and see how you compare to
A note on meaning: The word privatized
as used throughout the survey means that
a given government service is henceforth
supplied by the free market and paid for by
consumers. It is distinguished from sub-contracting
in which the government uses
tax money to hire a private firm to provide
a government service.
