Close enough. I don't like the questions though.

Thus you can move it with the vars...

I don't blame on the questions, but the options are too narrow and therefore "B&W".

I'm curious about the reasons why a left libertarian would like Bitcoin. In my mind, if Bitcoin took over the world then your ideal society would be impossible to accomplish unless it is on small closed communities. Can anyone enlighten me?

Damn! I thought I had just found my lost twin.

Just because I believe in some regulation doesn't mean that I want the government to be able to control each aspect of my life (like what I do with my money).

What aspects of your life do you want the government to be in control of?

You're mistaken the "tool" (money) with what to do with it.
Makes as much sense as saying that just right wing folks would be able to use plowshares...

Why would left libertarians not be happy with that?  As long as they can do whatever they want inside their community, they are fine, aren't they?

I think this really fits my way of thinking. I love the thought of a government that is based solely on trust , that can't compel me to pay taxes but i will pay as long as it does conform to most of my principles . The moment it drifts in a way i don't like i stop paying. As for drugs i really don't like restriction laws , they do nothing good except make those that don't care about offending the law getting more money for something that could be really easy to find. Big companies are "bad" but if people weren't ignorant then this companies would easily be compelled to do better then what they are doing now, if people are ignorant then though luck they should be abused. I would also love all religious thinking to disappear.

I may be totally wrong but isn't the "property is theft" idea central to left anarchists? If so then why would they even need the tool of money if everyone is obligated to share what they produce?

Yeah, I guess. I have this notion though that they seriously hate capitalism and will probably be unhappy until it is destroyed. Also they would possibly have to trade in a capitalistic way with the rest of the world in order to sustain the quality of life of their communities, adding to their unhappiness as they will feel exploited once again.

JohnDoe,

It's subjective, the "analysis" doesn't state which part of the social sphere a "leftist" likes or not. Retirement, unemployment, health care, "property-theft",  as you call it, etc...
So, your statement would just make sense if you find someone in the lower-left corner (anyone who "fits in the corners" is a crackpot btw, a dangerous fanatic) or even to one of the edges (these let's call those wackjobs).

Some anarchists, like communist anarchists, oppose money while mutualist and individualist anarchists do not, at least, not necessarily. In fact, Proudhon, who coined the phrase, advocated the use of mutual banks to strengthen the working class and to help bring about anarchy.

If you fit in a corner (3 squares around the corner) it means all your positions are "100%" for one "pre-determinate" side, which means you probably sold your brain in eBay and the World turns black an white. "No Agree or Disagree, either Strongly Agree or Strongly Disagree".
For those "at the edges", are not quite as bad as the ones in the "corners", but also take their position to an immoderate position.

So is it a bad thing to apply principles consistently? Or to apply them with conviction?
