Agorists consider themselves market anarchists. While many characterize it as a form of left-libertarianism, others consider it a branch of, or a transition strategy for achieving, anarcho-capitalism.

Agorists generally oppose voting for political candidates and political reform. Instead, agorists stress the importance of alternative strategies rather than politics to achieve a free society.

Agorists claim that we can achieve a free society more easily and sooner by employing such alternative methods as education, direct action, alternative currencies, entrepreneurship, self sufficiency, and most importantly "counter-economics".

Agorists consider their message to be scientific because science is an appeal to reason, which they believe is only possible in the Agora or free market; they also argue that State backed, regulated and funded science is illegitimate. - source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agorism)
