Quote from human-nature.com/nibbs/02/118.html "For the record, what I do argue in the book is that vesting too much power in a centralised state may not bring out the best in human nature compared with decentralised smaller-scale communitarianism. That may make me in one sense of the word libertarian, but it hardly makes me right wing."
