Apathetic. I dislike prejudice based on race, sexual orientation and the like. But for the most part, I'm just apathetic. Kind of liberal economically too, but there, very very hypocritically so since I never actually help anyone. I just kind of have worthless sympathy for people. Worthless, it doesn't do them any good, me feeling sorry for them, but there it is. I feel sorry for me too.

Here's this minus the quote being replied to and trimmed very slightly....

There's a contingent within the US left that has seized upon the academic language used for describing various forms of bigotry and made it a cudgel with which to beat down any and all opposition, including from the left. When Madeline Albright declared that any woman not supporting Hillary Clinton had a special place in Hell awaiting her it was she who was being sexist, and when Gloria Steinem belittled female Sanders supporters by insisting their motivation for being such was merely to get laid it was she who was being misogynist. Erasure of non-white Sanders supporters and subsequent insistence that because Sanders appealed to young whites it must be privilege that motivated them was disgustingly racist, but to hear the Clinton campaign tell the story they were the vanguard against racism. This nonsense undermines those on the left trying to advance serious-minded arguments for progressive policy and complaints against sincere instances of racism, sexism, homophobia, and so forth. It has to stop.




I remember the Albright quote. I did not like that, I agree it's... rather annoying.

Anyway, what my opinions are largely have to do with the individual issue and in a lot of instances, I just have to plead ignorance.

My own thought, that people could just voluntarily stop throwing children into this sometimes rather cruel world, probably ain't going to happen any time... uh... ever.

Honestly, I can never really grasp politics, so none.

I am a high Tory, an unusual and exotic brand of Conservatism. I don't believe in capitalism or socialism but an enlightened feudalism. Small middle class and a large working class, big business not to be trusted and power in the hands of the Monarchy and the people. No multinationals just the people and the Monarch with nothing in between.

Written or unwritten? I believe constitutions are a straight jacket for future generations. Instead let natural traditions build up that can change with society and are not bound by the decisions and views of a group of people who lived in the past. If it is written however, do ensure that it will be rewritten every 20 years or so to let the youth have a say. Government by people not by systems. Systems are fascist, soulless and unfeeling, people are real independent individuals. People not systems.

Depends on the issue. I'm more liberal when it comes to certain aspects and moderate to conservative on others. I am registered as an independent voter.
