Is a liberal the same thing as an anarchist?

I myself feel safer with no government just let everyone go and if someone kills someone else then one of his friends kill him and there is no more murderer

    Liberals and Anarchists are on essentially opposite ends of the political spectrum. Extreme liberalism is a totalitarian government where the state controls the actions of it's citizens while extreme anarchy is a state in which government does not exist at all. Libertarians are the closest things to Anarchists, but the majority of them still believe that the government must still exist to perform some basic social functions like national defense and protection of property rights. Libertarians have very conservative ideology which is the opposite of liberal ideology.

    I often talk about this to people with political misconceptions.

    A conservative wants small government with less power, and s liberal wants larger government with more power. So technically a conservative is closer, but not at all an anarchist.

    A lot of young people make this misconception.

    Communism has a nasty call purely like libertarians. real communism is a huge equipment, and we've yet to have a real communist government, everywhere. We do besides the fact that have a large number of real fascist international places.

    Libertarians are more closely related to anarchists.

    Well, yes, of course.

    Their ideas that the Bill of Rights and Constitution are "living documents" more then proves that.

    They want to fundamentally change our country.

    No, liberals like to use the government to redistribute wealth and control other people.
