TL;DL: I am a libertarian.
My views on politics are somewhat complicated. So I’ll try to explain them briefly.
The specifics of this is:
To explain Australian politics:
Labour Party: centre-left / red
Liberal Party: centre-right / blue
Liberal is connected with Conservative international parties: European Conservatives and Reformists Party.
In comparison to America:
Republican Party: centre-right / red
Democratic Party: center-left / blue
Republican is connected to Democratic international parties: International Democratic Union.
Democratic is connected with Conservative international parties: Nothing listed on wikipedia, but you get the point.
But fundamentally, down at the core, I am more liberal by definition of the word. I agree with some of the conservative premises though. I appreciate the concept of restriction when its required for living. I don’t want to ride on a train at max speed with no doors as an example. But I place the most emphasis on things like, ‘starting things that don’t fit inside the box’. I am not far-left in my general disposition. Though open about a lot of things, I also have high skeptical tendencies once I notice a flaw in anything.
Mostly throughout my life I have called myself an independent when anyone asked. Or a swing voter is the slang. Nonpartisan is the American word for this I hear. Due to not really feeling sold on either side.
I am a Libertarian whom daydreams about Agorism.
If you want to listen to an agorist society playing out. This is a great little audio book. I kind of live in this kind of system in my head mostly. So the physical world sometimes makes no sense for me as it doesn’t use agorism in many areas.
You can watch a few other videos here if curious:
Something I am not sure about… is whether I agree with Socrates or not. Incredibly hard discussion. Though as like 50% of people in most countries don’t bother to vote. You can see why Socrates might have been right.
