It's nice when (for once) we agree!

Perhaps it should have been 30 or 50 types.

You're missing the libertarian types of authoritarian.

The Manichean --
Everybody except true libertarians coerces others. Therefore we can retaliatively coerce anybody else.

The Not-Clear-On-The-Concept:
No rulers! We command it!
