Here is a test I created to measure just how libertarian you are. I think that many libertarians but not all of course, don't realize how much government does and is neccessary.

Answer the following with a "yes" or a "no". "yes" if you believe that the function, agency or service is needed at the government level and "no" if you feel that it is not.
If you want, give reasons and alternatives.

One final question. How much seperates an extreme libertarian from an anarchist?
