what would you consider your political stance to be and why?
I try not to box myself in with a label, but any political compass test I’ve taken has placed me nearly off the grid in the bottom left corner in the bottom left quadrant. I believe it’s called “AnarchoCommunism” or something to that effect. Basically, I’m extreme in my political beliefs haha.
I don’t believe that money should be a thing, all we have should be divided equally. I don’t believe borders should be a thing. I don’t think drugs should be illegal, I don’t think organized religion should be a thing. Nobody should work for money, instead the goal should be progressing and improving life on this planet through science and technology. Jobs such as factory production or industrial construction, jobs nobody wants to spend the rest of their lives doing, can and should be automated.
Of course, my beliefs absolutely could not be implemented in a world overrun by 7.5 billion people haha
I used to consider myself liberal or, libertarian socialist. But to be honest I’m starting to feel more conservative. A lot of liberalism, or liberals, now seems to be to be more of a fashion statement that people use, or a way of showing how utterly awesome and chilled and non-judgemental the individual is without offering anything much practical that will work within society.
I’ve also noticed often that the people I used to align myself with are total believers in free speech until it applies to people who are saying things they don’t like, and I’m not cool with that atall.
I don’t like the institutions and governments that are in place, but I also no longer trust people to be decent human beings of their own accord.
Anarchocapitalist/voluntaryist. I believe in the “radical” idea that all human interactions should be consensual. Capitalism isn’t the greedy, evil thing everyone thinks it inherently is. The free market voluntaryism is the only system I know of that doesn’t require violence.
