The following was inspired by an anonymous author whose viral email focused on the terms ‘Conservative’ and ‘Liberal’ which, in my observation, confused the ‘Test’ as both those who call themselves ‘Conservative’ and ‘Liberal’ would use the FORCE of Government to advance their agenda.
The only real difference is the agenda.
I openly admit I used, in some sentences, the same words as the original author and would like to thank him or her for the inspiration they provided me.
Please pass on this Libertarian / Statist Test to everyone you know.
Are you a Libertarian
(an ‘Adult With Good Manners’)
Are you a Statist
(who would vote to use the Force of Government to advance your particular agenda) ?
If you have ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on,
please take this test!
If a Libertarian doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Statist doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a Libertarian is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Statist is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a Libertarian is homosexual, he/she simply lives his/her life.
If a Statist is homosexual, he/she demands legislated respect.
If a Libertarian is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Statist wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a Libertarian doesn’t like a talk show host or news outlet, he switches channels.
A Statist demands that those they don’t like be shut down or outlawed.
* A Libertarian relies on Education and Persuasion to Create Change. *
