I've asked on many occasions, on what basis do you consider yourself a radical liberal (a self proclaimed term that is NEVER backed up by what beliefs you post here).
i never made that claim, i consider myself to be a radical leftist. Liberals I despise for being closed minded, stupid, and ethically challenged. I considered myself to be a liberal till such time as I could no longer manage to hold my nose.
my views which go left are
a strong belief that we are all created equal and should be treated equal as much as possible by the state
strong progressiveness to the point that I have given up in our current dying civilization and want to get to work birthing what comes next
have a belief that markets are only sometimes useful, and only sometimes should be allowed to operate with freedom.
am a strong believer in unions and co-operatives
believe that the best human efforts come though co-operative efforts
am willing to nationalize bad citizen industries without compensation
dont believe in the death penalty
dont believe that the law or punishment is the best remedy for most social problems
believe that the governments right to pursue its social agenda ends at advocacy except in cases where the pursuit of justice activates the justice system. a direct violation of personal rights by one citizen towards another is required to give the government jurisdiction to use the force of law.
am generally hostile to global free trade programs
am 100% hostile to global free flows of capital
believe that all wealth belongs to the collective, it is only held and entrusted to individual citizens (to include corporations and businesses) , and this wealth can be removed at any time upon the direction of the majority.
believe in the governments right to redistribute wealth by force, though this is often not a good idea.
believe that the will of the people trumps the will of the government
believe that democracy is dependent upon having a free people who are well educated and whom retain the ability to control their own lives according to their will.
believe that the state has almost no right to regulate intimate relationships
believe that citizens should maintain sexual freedom unless there is an extremely good reason to remove this freedom
believe that all actions of the government should be transparent, that is to say who is cause the action and what the aim is must be stated clearly and truthfully
believe that law should be clear, and that the state which cherry picks citizens to make an example of should be strongly condemned, and removed from power if such abuses of the citizen are not corrected
i believe that the government or any group or individual has almost no rights to interfere in the conversations between citizens. free speech is sacrosanct.
i could continue but this should be enough to illustrate my point
