Alliance of Libertarian Left
Long is a co-founder
 and member of the Alliance of the Libertarian Left,    a  left-libertarian organization that seeks to unite various left-libertarian groups including agorists, geolibertarians, green libertarians, left-Rothbardians, minarchists, mutualists and voluntaryists, among others. 
According to Long, he specializes in "Greek philosophy; moral psychology; ethics; philosophy of social science; and political philosophy (with an emphasis on libertarian/anarchist theory)."
Long supports what he calls "  libertarian anarchy", but avoids describing this as "  capitalism", a term he believes has inconsistent and confusing meanings.
He is an advocate of "build[ing] worker solidarity. On the one hand, this means formal organization, including unionization—but I'm not talking about the prevailing model of 'business unions' ... but
real unions, the old-fashioned kind, committed to the working class and not just union members, and interested in worker autonomy, not government patronage."
Long identifies as a
peace activist and points out that a "consistent peace activist must be an anarchist." He describes  market anarchism as "a peaceful, consensual alternative" to society with a state. Long has identified himself as a  bleeding-heart libertarian and has contributed to the Bleeding Heart Libertarians weblog.
In addition to supporting privatizing the military, Long is for a
non-interventionist foreign policy with no imperialism, no foreign adventuring, and no gunboat diplomacy.
