How should I know? I don't go around here asking people "Are you a liberal?" because that would sound threatening.

Extreme liberalism? Aren't extreme liberals basically anarchists? I think you're referring to the regressive left. Oh well it's just semantics so I shouldn't dwell on it. I think most people these days have different ideas on what the names of different political ideals mean anyway.

On to the subject at hand. There are too many for my liking. I don't think they'll ever become what the average person agrees with though. Especially with the counter culture against it that has been growing. It's just a shame that some of that counter culture is also extreme.

Yeah, the regressive left I believe is what they are talking about. I don't believe that it is an extreme problem, but it is a problem none the less.

Extreme liberalism isn't necessarily PC culture, or "SJW's". Radical left can refer to marxism or even anarchism. So while PC culture and such is on the radical left--it's just one type of extremity.

That is why it's wrong to say "Left = SJW". It's a component. More common on the left end of the spectrum but not congruent.

I think they're loud, and you don't need many loud people. Probably not as large as we fear, but more than we could ever want.

You should check out Gary Edwards on youtube. I think you'd like him.

None, the word has been changed out for the fluffier sounding 'progressive'. Also it's impossible to be a extreme progressive because there is another word for that in today's political vocabulary, socialist. Classifications are fun.

>Nordic countries
Thats a fucking weird way of saying that. If you mean European countries tend to be much more liberal than US countries thats true.

That depends are where you are standing.

I don't see very many extreme liberals, the world has far too many extreme conservatives.

You say that like socialism is a bad thing. I fully support democratic socialism.

Probably about as many as any other political section. The extremists speak the loudest.

Depends on the topic probably. I'm sure that would apply to plenty of "extreme" people though.
