Historically libertarians are left wing, but in america it has been kind turned upside down. Just like conservatism has become some weird ultra nationalist reactionary ideology. Gotta love the USDer Effe said:I don't know much about the European libertarian movement (isn't the biggest 'libertarian' movement here the anarchist movement?) but yeah, terminology is always open for debate. In the US a liberal is more or less considered to be left-wing, wheras here being a liberal is almost a synonym for neo-liberalism, thus right-wing. And a disease.
