There are leaders everywhere, they occur naturally.

On DDO lately I have seen users who I think I can pick out as the leader of certain factions and groups here.

For example:

Self Righteous Liberals: 000ike
Communists/socialists: rogue/royalpaladin
Right: (idk)
Pseudo-Trolls: inferno

Etc etc

Each one of these members is usually articulate or can at least hold an audience for a while and have gathered a following.

Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?

Who's the leader of the Right? Left? Conservatives? Libertarians?

I find it all kind of fascinating.

As for the leader of the right, not sure TBH.

"Leader" and "Most Vocal" are unfortunately confused quite often.

Agreed, but these people are definitely leaders in my opinion. There are people more vocal than what I've posted but like when 000ike left the Left was a little panicked... lol

Perhaps a more correct statement would be the face of whatever they represent?

I actually like this idea. It would be pretty interesting.

In fact, I already have the Libertas Party that I ran on in the last presidential election.

This.

That's just ignorant. The anarchist movement has always had leaders in its ranks who attracted followers. Proudhon, Bakunin, Kropotkin, Goldman, etc.

Post was not meant to be taken entirely seriously. Thats why I put the Lol in there.

But about the remaining Anarchists on the site, I dont think Royal counts. Her profile says she's a communist...

There have been communist anarchists. In fact, they're probably the most prevalent.

Huh, that doesn't make sense to me. How can the common ownership of the means of production occur without the intervention of the State? Sooner or later is seems like the means of production would be taken by force...

I am not very familiar with unusual forms of government, in fact, I never knew that people could actually be anarchists before coming to this site (so definitely learned a lot here). Anyways, what are the major forms of government? Is saying that someone is conservative or liberal analogous to saying someone is an Anarchist, Ancap, communist or socialist? It seems to me like capitalism, socialism and communism are mentioned analogously to conservative/liberal/republican/democrat when they really are not.

For instance, I am a
1) Liberal
2) Democrat
3) Capitalist?

By #3, I mean that I would like the United States government to be precisely how it is right now. Yeah, the government made bad decisions but overall, I feel that we have the best form of government. I definitely support minimum wage, welfare, and Social Security. Is that considered socialist/communist? If so, then the US should be a socialist/communist country because we currently have all of those things.

How would you classify a person who is quite happy with the way the US government operates?

Also, this question is more for people like SocialPinko: What is the difference between Anarchist and an Ancap? I know I can "google" it but I want to hear from an actual person rather than read a page of text.
