An incrementalist anarchist perhaps

He is open to anarcho-capitalism but he has tried to make the best of a bad situation. He has tried to reverse the intensification of fascism that is inherent in all government and if he could get it to zero, it is obvious he would approve. Certainly most anarcho-capitalists don't approve of the compromises he has made, for example supporting the conjob, in order to pursue this goal of incremental movement toward anarchy. There is a range of reactions to these inconsistencies caused by him trying to work within the system. Some ancaps understand his motives are focused on what we approve of- education, and can look past his transgressions of principle, and others cannot.

I think the question is more about what happens now. Will he start endorsing pure freedom or this limited government nonsense, utopian fantasy. If he continues to mislead people in to believe government can be limited, that legalized crime and inequality under the law is containable to a certain level of crime, than he is betraying freedom and doesn't deserve the name anarchist.
