When he talks of how government should be feeding the impoverished of the world, that is hardly anarchist, since it presupposes a global government that is taking from one and redistributing to another. Maybe that was a carry over from his Green Party (socialist) days, I don't know.

Here in the states libertarian is a conservative movement, or classical liberal, but not "left" by any means. Ron Paul and Peter Schiff, libertarians both, are hardly leftists. But I agree that Icke leans more toward the left as far as I can tell.
Within the prison of your world appears a man who tells you that the world of painful contradictions, which you have created, is neither continuous nor permanent and is based on a misapprehension. He pleads with you to get out of it, by the same way by which you got into it. You got into it by forgetting what you are and you will get out of it by knowing yourself as you are. -- Nisargadatta Maharaj
