No it really isn't. It's an insane fantasy that disregards even the semblance of real world consequences.

RE: Political quiz
It's a capitalism version of communism.

It's not that bad of a theory actually. In reality it wouldn't work out just as in reality communism doesn't work. BUT it's still a better theory than communism.

I'm not even sure what it means, but I was put at 80% for it. Does that mean I'm stupid or just dreaming? Could be both, I guess. When I answered the questions I did it with both my realist attitude and my unrealistic dreams of what our government should be both fighting for my vote.

That's why I don't like these kinds of quizzes. I have to choose between what I would want to see happen and what I think might work in reality. I put in a mixture of both and can't really rely on the results to accurately portray what kind of vote I would make in a real world situation.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

It's basically the most extreme form of capitalism in the sense that communism is the most extreme form of socialism.
It's about getting rid of the government (anarchy bit) in favor of a total free market of everything.

Got it. Yeah, that makes sense. In my dream world fantasy, we would all be good enough people to actually want to help each other out and maintain a functioning system of capitalism that would be sustainable and profitable for everybody.

But then there is reality, and I agree that it's a fucking pipe dream.

I am still laughing at this one.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
