The only thing that sucks about being an Anarchist (where I am from at least) people kind of giggle at you when they find out. The reason being, they really have absolutely no idea what Anarchism is or what is stands for. They only associate it with chaos and stupid little skater kids. It is not really taken serious where I live and these people who claim they know it have never even heard the name Emma Goldman or William Godwin. So yeah, that gets extremely annoying.

I propose a system for socioeconomic organization that would best fit the label "socialism with market elements," but I'm as of yet undecided on the exact political system. While I definitely envision a free society in terms of speech, expression, sexuality etc., I'm undecided on how democratic the political system should be. I'm distrustful of the judgment of the masses, however I also see the potential pitfalls of creating a purely autocratic legal structure. As such I like the general idea of a hybridization of meritocracy and democracy, but with far more meritocracy in the mix than current western governments. I'm toying with many ideas for the details of implementing such a system.

Social democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Should be a good starting point for ya.

I chose Moderate. Like others have stated, when beliefs are added up, some liberal, some conservative, they average out to be moderate. I don't care for extremes of either end of the spectrum. I have had the pleasure of an INTP extol the virtues of Libertarianism to me and I agree with it to an extent, but still feel overall, moderate describes me.

If you live in America, you might as well tell these semi-conscious brain-washed animals that you're Independent. Because in our country, if you don't follow the two-party system, you're automatically assumed as Independent, or on the rarer scale, libertarian. It's a real decent label for those special souls that spend the majority of their time preying for money in church, half-choking on greasy cheeseburgers at fast food joints, and shopping at Hollister, while dying from AXE toxins.

If you're an Anarchist, you're considered a teenage hooligan with the malicious intent to spray your stop sign with red graffiti or break your neighbor's window with a rock.

Yeah, they seem to just come up with their own image of what an Anarchist is. Specifically a trouble making kid who is too young to understand. A bunch of rednecks I work with annoy me because they just call me Liberal... Also I would like to point out then I absolutely hate when someone tells me, you're just too young. First of all, It has to do with knowledge, not age. 2nd, I'm almost 22, which I know is young, but it's not like I'm 13... I could go on and on about this.

I'm always in between on subjects... never lean one way or the other. So I guess I would have to say moderate. It kinda sucks cause people think I'm a pussy for not choosing a side. The thing is, I truly believe balance in all things is important. Without it, nothing works...

This one was difficult; I've had such bad dealings with the government and their idiotic rules and regulations that I've long been tempted to associate myself with anarchy. I was, for quite a while, a monarchist; however, I now decided that, perhaps, libertarianism is best - though, of course, anarchism is always an option.

By the way, you spelled 'fascism' wrong; also, there is a difference between fascism and monarchy.
I don't think that people are smart enough to make Libertarianism work, at least not in America. That why I'm an Egoist Anarchist.

I've always disliked the idea of government. Don't know much about politics and I still don't. When I found out that an Anarchistic wasn't under any political ruling I liked the sound of that. My parents are conservative so I do have that background. I took an online test about a year ago and it said I was a socialist and democratic. *Shrugs* whatever that means.:tongue:

Guess I'm not fond of the idea of power. It's sad that we need to pay a bunch of babysitters to keep us inline. Why can't we take care of ourselves and live our lives like normal people? And...if someone gets out of hand (power trip) I'll call up my boyfriend Batman over here and he'll sort things out (power trip).:crazy:

I'd have to say a mixture of liberal and conservative ideals, with a dash of green party and neo-luddism, all centric to the values of libertarianism. And a capitalistic economy.

George Washington himself was against the ideas of political parties at the beginning of Independence. He said they can only tear a nation apart - which, using the U.S.A. as a case study, rings very true. I believe in not being part of the system! :happy: So basically, independent?
