What kind of anarchist are you?

You scored as a Christian Anarchist

Christian anarchism is one of the oldest anarchist philosophies, arguably dating back to the early Christian church. Christian anarchists emphasise non-violence and oppose the state as God is the only legitimate source of authority. Key thinkers include the Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy.

Christian Anarchist    100%
Anarcho-Primitivist     80%
Anarcho-Communist     75%
Anarcho-Syndicalist    40%
Anarcho-Capitalist     25%
Anarcha-Feminist    20%

I have no idea how I scored 20% on anarcho-feminist. I tried to zero out all the feminist questions. They must give you a base of 20%, figuring that if you're an anarchist, you can't possibly be for oppression of women.  :-\

You scored as a Anarcho-Capitalist
Anarcho-capitalism is perhaps more closely linked the libertarian tradition than anarchism as it favours a free market and a stateless society. Private businesses would replace the functions of the state. This form of anarchism is largely an American phenomenon and first emerged in the 1950s (although it arguably has its roots in 19th century individualist anarchism and classical liberalism). Key thinkers include Murray Rothbard.

At least some of the misspellings are Britishisms.

Frankly, I was disappointed that they left out "Anarcho-Poopalist"

Many of the questions are offensive, "The means of production should be owned in common by the community, not just the workers."?, they didn't have a neather option.

They even felt the need to repeat that one later in the quiz.

Half the questions were too inane to answer, but the quiz won't allow blank answers, so I don't have any idea how I would have scored.

Yes, it appears to have been made by a leftist libertarian who doesn't understand free market notions of property. I don't expect them to agree with it necessarily, but it should be in the quiz. There should never be an either/or in an agree/disagree quiz. They should be separate questions, e.g.

Means of production should be owned in common by the community. Disagree 1 2 3 4 5 Agree
Means of production should be owned by the workers. Disagree 1 2 3 4 5 Agree

The term "means of production" is such a loaded phrase anyway that in itself promotes a specific notion of property. I AM the means of production with Anarchy In Your Head. Lloyd is the means of production of his carpentry. Many modes of production involve different degrees of  "means of production". But that discussion would be a different thread. I don't want to hijack this one. The only reason I mention it is because when I get to the version of the question for free market anarchists, we wouldn't use that phrase and so discussion of property immediately takes on a much broader meaning.

Maybe someone should make a more complete quiz.

It is like centrally planning or deciding who should be liberated ..... everybody and thing should be liberated .... but I don't get to choose or make it happen. All I can do is help people and not help enslave them.
