Would you describe yourself as politically moderate?
I believe in the environment, education, personal privacy, and science. That makes me a RADICAL in a Trump America.
No such thing as politically moderate. Every position, including inaction, is a position in support of something. So-called moderates are extremist supporters of the status quo.
I’m consistently for human freedom.
It’s those on the left and right who aren’t, who are the extremists.
So you're an extremist moderate?
And I’m not consistent in my support for human freedom?
I am right of center.
Slightly right, but close enough. I swear being a moderate is like a free forcefield from any shit the right and left toss at each other.
Moderate in terms of left vs right?
Both in terms of left/right and authoritarian/libertarian
In that case, I am definitely more libertarian than authoritarian, though my positions vary in both social and economic policy in terms of left and right.
If I'm moderate on an issue, it's likely because I haven't yet settled on a firm stance. I'm conservative on the majority of issues, more liberal on a few.
I’m pretty moderate, except when I’m not. 😝
I’m pretty friendly except when I’m not! 🤭
No, I’m going to make that very clear, I’m very radically anti authoritarian.
Same here, though I’m on the lower right side of the political spectrum as opposed to the lower left
Would you consider yourself an ancap or minarchist, or something else?
Not quite, I guess I’d be a bit above minarchists though not by much. I’d describe my ideology on social and economic issues as libertarian or libertarian capitalist, though my foreign policy views don’t fit in with those labels all that well as I tend to favor interventionism over isolationism. How about you?
Oh I’m just an outright anarchist in the classical sense. Umbrella terms like social anarchist, left libertarian, libertarian socialist, and classical libertarian are all applicable to me.
Sounds like youre just authoritarian against authoritarian regimes.
I haven’t heard of that one before, although there are some that would argue revolution is inherently authoritarian, I thoroughly reject that notion.
Also sounds like you're authoritarian towards their view of authoritarianism.
I'm going to authoritatively ask: do you think authority represents repression?
Pls give me ur sincere and authoritative answer regarding your views on authority.
I don’t think authority in and of itself represents repression, I hold that all individuals and groups in a position of power over others have a burden of proof to meet to those that they have authority over (typically meaning to the approval of those that authority is being exercised over), and if they can’t meet that burden of proof, their authority is illegitimate and should be dismantled and replaced with non hierarchical free association. This allows for a certain type of authority, one where the interaction in voluntary, based on competence, and is instantly revocable, so for example when it comes to collecting scientific data, I refer to the authority of scientists and their peer reviewed research, not be cause of any outright coercion compelling me to do so, but because it is imposed on me by my own reason.
There's kind of a large difference between social organization and legitimacy of fact through repetitive research. But thanks.
I’m in between the Green Party and Bernie Sanders, more of a socialist.
