Agreed. That guy just spews this illusion of libertarianism and in another thread he tried to rewrite the left right spectrum to agree with his opinion. It's crazy. It's a very limited study and imo isn't even applicable.

Libertarians always relied on anecdotal evidence to support their bullshit. It's the same "evidence" they use to support their retarded bootstraps argument, it goes something like this: "Did you see that billionaire who went from nothing to having an entire empire? Everyone can do it too then!". Let's ignore social mobility stats, let's ignore how poverty affects the psychology of children and their chances to have proper education and let's focus on that one guy! Because fuck studies, statistics and facts when you can use anecdotal evidence to support your dogma.

Honestly they just don't want to have any of their money taken to support others.

Well the right-left spectrum is pretty bad.

It gives an idea of economic system and type of government. Obviously there is a lot of wiggle room with statism all the way to anarchism. It's why I prefer the 4-way spectrum with government size on the y-axis and the standard left right on the x-axis.

That guy was vehemently arguing that democracy and fascism are the same thing since they are both left wing ideologies.
