Conservative-Libertarian Conservative

Libertarian conservatism is a conservative political philosophy and ideology that combines right-libertarian politics and conservative values. Libertarian conservatives' first value is negative liberty to achieve socially and culturally conservative...  ends. They reject liberal social engineering. Frank Meyer, a co-founder of National Review has called this combination fusionism. In political science, the term is used to refer to ideologies that combine the advocacy of economic principles, such as fiscal discipline, respect for contracts, defense of private property and free markets and the classical conservative stress on self-help and freedom of choice under a laissez-faire capitalist society with social tenets such as the belief in natural inequality, the importance of religion, and the value of traditional morality through a framework of limited, constitutional, representative government.Freedom & Virtue: The Conservative Libertarian Debate, edited by George W. Carey, contains essays which describe "the tension between liberty and morality" as "the main fault line dividing the two philosophies.   more

Progressive-Social Liberal

Social liberalism is a political ideology with the belief that the right to freedom from coercion should include a societal foundation. Social liberalism seeks to balance individual liberty and social justice. Like classical liberalism, it endorses ... a market economy and the expansion of civil and political rights and liberties, but differs in that it believes the legitimate role of the government includes addressing economic and social issues such as poverty, health care and education. Under social liberalism, the good of the community is viewed as harmonious with the freedom of the individual. Social liberal policies have been widely adopted in much of the capitalist world, particularly following World War II. Social liberal ideas and parties tend to be considered centrist or centre-left. The term social liberalism is used to differentiate it from classical liberalism, which dominated political and economic thought for several centuries until social liberalism branched off from it around the Great Depression   more

Libertarian- Classical Liberal

Classical liberalism is a political philosophy and ideology belonging to liberalism in which primary emphasis is placed on securing the freedom of the individual by limiting the power of the government. The philosophy emerged as a response to the In... dustrial Revolution and urbanization in the 19th century in Europe and the United States. It advocates civil liberties with a limited government under the rule of law, private property rights, and belief in laissez-faire economic liberalism. Classical liberalism is built on ideas that had already arisen by the end of the 18th century, including ideas of Adam Smith, John Locke, Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo. Its greatest expression as a political philosophy in the 19th century was in the works of John Stuart Mill. It drew on a psychological understanding of individual liberty, natural law, utilitarianism, and a belief in progress.In the late 19th century, classical liberalism developed into neo-classical liberalism, which argued for government to be as small as possible in order to allow the exercise of individual freedom. In its most extreme form, it advocated Social Darwinism   more

You are a real Anarchist and know your stuff. You believe that the state is an unneccessary evil and think that the private sector is much better at handling everything than the government.

Socialist-Syndicalist

Syndicalism is a type of proposed economic system, a form of socialism, considered a replacement for capitalism. It suggests that industries be organised into confederations or syndicates. It is "a system of economic organization in which industries...  are owned and managed by the workers."Its theory and practice is the advocation of multiple cooperative productive units composed of specialists and representatives of workers in each respective field to negotiate and manage the economy. Syndicalism also refers to the political movement and tactics used to bring about this type of system.For adherents, labour unions and labour training are the potential means of both overcoming economic aristocracy and running society fairly and in the interest of informed and skilled majorities, through union democracy. Industry in a syndicalist system would be run through co-operative confederations and mutual aid. Local syndicates would communicate with other syndicates through the Bourse du Travail which would cooperatively determine distributions of commodities   more

Socialist-Democratic Socialist

Democratic socialism is a political ideology advocating a democratic political system alongside a socialist economic system. This may refer to extending principles of democracy in the economy, or may simply refer to trends of socialism that emphasis... e democratic principles as inalienable from their political project.There is no exact definition of democratic socialism. Some forms of democratic socialism overlap with social democracy, while other forms reject social democratic reformism in favor of more revolutionary methods, and overlap with Revolutionary Socialism   more

Conservative- Liberal Conservative

As both "conservatism" and "liberalism" have had different meanings over time and across countries, the term liberal conservatism has been used in quite different senses. In political science, the term is used to refer to ideologies that combine the...  advocacy of laissez-faire economic principles, such as respect for contracts, defense of private property and free markets with the belief in natural inequality, the importance of religion, and the value of traditional morality through a framework of limited, constitutional, representative government. It contrasts with classical liberalism and especially aristocratic conservatism, rejecting the principle of equality as something in discordance with human nature, instead emphasizing the idea of natural inequality.As the conservative ideology in democratic countries embraced typical liberal institutions such as the rule of law, private property, market economy, and constitutional representative government, the liberal element of liberal conservatism became consensual outside of the socialist camp   more

Socialist-Nazi

Nazism, or National Socialism in full, is the ideology and practice associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party and state as well as other related far-right groups. It was also promoted in other European countries with large ethnic German com... munities, such as Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia. Usually characterised as a form of fascism that incorporates scientific racism and antisemitism, Nazism originally developed from the influences of pan-Germanism, the Völkisch German nationalist movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary culture in post-First World War Germany, which many Germans felt had been left humiliated by the Treaty of Versailles.German Nazism subscribed to theories of racial hierarchy and social Darwinism; the Germanic peoples—also referred to as the Nordic race—were considered to be the purest representation of Aryanism, and therefore the master race. Opposed to both capitalism and Marxism, Nazism aimed to overcome social divisions, with all parts of a racially homogeneous society cooperating for national unity and regeneration and to secure territorial enlargement at the expense of supposedly inferior neighbouring nations   more

Socialist-Communist

Communism is a socioeconomic system structured upon common ownership of the means of production and characterized by the absence of social classes, money, and the state; as well as a social, political and economic ideology and movement that aims to ... establish this social order. The movement to develop communism, in its Marxist–Leninist interpretations, significantly influenced the history of the 20th century, which saw intense rivalry between the states which claimed to follow this ideology and their enemies.Communism is most associated with Marxism, which considers itself the embodiment of scientific socialism. According to Marxism, capitalism is a historically necessary stage of society, which has led to the concentration of social classes into two major groups: proletariat - who must work to survive, and who make up a majority of society - and bourgeoisie - a minority who derive profit from employing the proletariat, through private ownership of the means of production. The political, social, and economic conflict between both groups, each attempting to push their interests to their logical extreme, will lead into the capture of political power by the proletariat   more

Fascist

Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, combining more typically right-wing positions with eleme... nts of left-wing politics, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and traditional conservatism. Although fascism is often placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum, several academics have said that the description is inadequate.Fascists sought to unify their nation through an authoritarian state that promoted the mass mobilization of the national community and were characterized by having leadership that initiated a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology. Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation, and it asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations   more

Socialist-Bolshevist

National Bolshevism is a political movement that combines elements of radical nationalism and Bolshevism. It is often anti-capitalist in tone, and sympathetic towards certain nationalist forms of socialism, as Stalinism and Maoism. Nevertheless, Nat... ional Bolshevism is separate and distinct from National communism.Today, Russia is considered to be the center of National Bolshevism, and almost all of the National Bolshevik parties and organizations in the world are connected to it. Amongst the leading practitioners and theorists of National Bolshevism are Aleksandr Dugin and Eduard Limonov, who leads the unregistered and banned National Bolshevik Party in Russia. Influenced heavily by the idea of geopolitics, current Russian National Bolshevik movements propose a merger between Russia, Europe and parts of Asia, in a union to be known as Eurasia.The Franco-Belgian Parti Communautaire National-Européen shares National Bolshevism's desire for the creation of a united Europe, as well as many of the NBP's economic ideas. French political figure Christian Bouchet has also been influenced by the idea   more

Progressive-Green

Green politics is a political ideology that aims to create an ecologically sustainable society rooted in environmentalism, social justice, and grassroots democracy. It began taking shape in the western world in the 1970s; since then Green parties ha... ve developed and established themselves in many countries around the globe, and have achieved some electoral success.The political term Green, a translation of the German Grün, was coined by die Grünen, a Green party formed in the late 1970s. The term political ecology is sometimes used in Europe and in academic circles, but in the latter has come to represent an interdisciplinary field of study, including chemistry and chemical engineering.Supporters of Green politics, called Greens, share many ideas with the ecology, conservation, environmentalism, feminism, and peace movements. In addition to democracy and ecological issues, green politics is concerned with civil liberties, social justice, nonviolence, sometimes variants of localism and tends to support social progressivism. The party's platform is largely considered left in the political spectrum   more

Libertarian-Minarchist

Minarchism is a political philosophy and a form of libertarianism. It is variously defined by sources. In the strictest sense, it holds that states ought to exist, that their only legitimate function is the protection of individuals from aggression,...  theft, breach of contract, and fraud, and that the only legitimate governmental institutions are the military, police, and courts. In the broadest sense, it also includes fire departments, prisons, the executive, and legislatures as legitimate government functions. Such states are generally called night-watchman states.Minarchists argue that the state has no authority to use its monopoly of force to interfere with free transactions between people, and see the state's sole responsibility as ensuring that contracts between private individuals and property are protected, through a system of law courts and enforcement. Minarchists generally believe a laissez-faire approach to the economy is most likely to lead to economic prosperity   more

Socialist-Fourierist

Fourierism is the systematic set of economic, political, and social beliefs first espoused by French intellectual Charles Fourier. Based upon a belief in the inevitability of communal associations of people who worked and lived together as part of t... he human future, Fourier's committed supporters referred to his doctrines as Associationism. Political contemporaries and subsequent scholarship has identified Fourier's set of ideas as a form of Utopian socialism — a phrase which retains mild pejorative overtones.Never tested in practice on any scale in Fourier's lifetime, the Fourierist movement enjoyed a brief boom in the United States of America during the middle of the 1840s owing largely to the efforts of his American popularizer, Albert Brisbane and the American Union of Associationists, but ultimately failed as a social and economic model. The system was briefly revived in the middle 1850s by Victor Considerant, a French disciple of Fourier's who unsuccessfully attempted to relaunch the model in the American state of Texas in the 1850s   more

Progressive-Ordoliberal

Ordoliberalism is the German variant between social liberalism and neoliberalism that emphasizes the need for the state to ensure that the free market produces results close to its theoretical potential.Ordoliberal ideals drove the creation of the p... ost-World War II German social market economy and its attendant Wirtschaftswunder. However, ordoliberals promoted the concept of the social market economy, and this concept promotes a strong role for the state with respect to the market, which is in many ways different from the ideas that are nowadays connected with the term neoliberalism.The term "Ordoliberalism" was coined in 1950 by Hero Moeller, and refers to the academic journal ORDO   more

They were different to the Fascists of Italy like Mussolini and the term fascist originates from there. Although recognised as Fascists today they in fact called themselves Socialists.

I am mostly a mixture between Classical Liberalism and Minarchism but also share a lot in common with Libertarian Conservatism and Liberal Conservatism. I am also quite interested in Anarcho-Capitalism but I think a small form of government ought to exist in order to protect individual rights from force or fraud and also to control immigration.

Minarchism is not anarchism. Anarcho-capitalism is not anarchism. Anarchism is the opposite to authority and hierarchical power relations. Capitalism is a system based on economic inequality and creates a ruling class of authority. It's literally just one giant joke that the anarchist community as a whole doesn't recognize "anarcho"-capitalism as even being anarchist. Anarcho-capitalism is a doctrinal system which, if ever implemented, would lead to forms of tyranny and oppression that have few counterparts in human history. There isn't the slightest possibility that its ideas would be implemented, because they would quickly destroy any society that made this colossal error. The idea of "free contract" between the potentate and his starving subject is a sick joke, perhaps worth some moments in an academic seminar exploring the consequences of absurd ideas, but nowhere else. Anarchism has always been anti-capitalist because capitalism and anarchism are not compatible.

No anarchist will take anarcho-captailism seriously because it just a manifestation of absolute bs.

Communism was the jewish revolt against civilization, especially western civilization. Civilization has always been built on hierarchy and leadership and structure. Communism destroys that in its effort to destroy all that we know and identify with that is human. I support Adolf Hitler because I support racial hierarchy and racial order as that is an additional step away from communistical apocalypse. In order to achieve the perfect society ones needs to establish the perfect order and the perfect economy. In order to achieve this certain impurities need to be eliminated especially jews, communists, and anarchists as the long term benefit of eliminating these will surely outweigh whatever suffering needed to achieve it.
Heraclitus says2015-04-16T16:37:29.6580575-05:00
I never said Minarchism was Anarchism. It isn't but it is Libertarian. Anarcho-Capitalism is definitely Anarchism and the only real Anarchism. Anarchism is the opposite of authority. Capitalism is not authority, Socialism is. Left wing Egalitarian positions advocate wealth equality which means redistribution of wealth which is theft and carried out by authority. The idea that Anarchism can be Sociailist is a massive joke and incredibly flawed. You have know idea what Capitalism really is. It is when the private sector (in other words not the government or authority/ free individuals) control trade and industry instead of the state. True Anarchism will always be Capitalist. Anarchism and Capitalism go hand in hand just as Communism and Socialism go hand in hand. Capitalism is the economic aspect of freedom and Liberty.

Capitalism is the economics of the freedom to be oppressed.

Thats not authority. Thats freedom.
Heraclitus says2015-04-18T04:58:44.7819492-05:00
Capitalism is the economics of freedom to trade services and resources voluntarily without the government interfering and regulating what you can and cannot buy which jot only affects the rich badly but affects the poor equally as bad. Don't like Capitalism? Go move to North Korea or Cuba or you could go in a time machine and travel to Nazi Germany or the USSR. Capitalism works and it is fair.

Money is not power- money is a means of trade between individuals.
