I'm never sure where I stand in politics. I strongly identify with Left Libertarians such as Chomsky and to a lesser extent Henry George, but was wondering if people could ask me questions so that I can really pinpoint what my stance is.
(Political Compass gave me anarcho-socialist, but I'm not an anarchist. Anti-authoritarian, yes, but not for a second anti-state.)

Should gays be able to legally marry?

Do you think cops are the solution or the problem?

Legally? Yes. Religiously, that's a church matter and not political.

No. All drugs should be legalised and state-produced to maintain a high purety and safety.

Law-enforcement is necessary to enforce the law. I believe they're fine as they are, though they need to be modernised a lot more. Communicating using smartphones rather than choppy radios that anyone with a radio (including criminals) can listen to, and so forth.

In a utopic situation, I'd prefer the police and law system to be replaced by objective robots. A robot attorney/lawyer has already been tested out, and worked quite well. This would end nepotism and corruption.

As an aside, I'd also like to see presidential and political immunity removed. An MP who raped some children in the UK, or indeed if Prince Charles raped some children, would probably get away with it because of the many immunities. The French president (see Mitterand) can barely even be prosecuted!
