Political Theory & Policy

Web

In this group, we discuss policy and other things relevant to US politics. Don't be surprised if hasty notions and irrelevant commentary are met with regulatory action.


About the political leanings of the admin:


I could talk about my beliefs that underpin my views on politics, but I have to keep it succinct as possible for time constraints.


For many years, I have been highly critical, if not also extremely rejecting of centralized control on both social and economic issues. I am also the same way towards the standing political ideologies, and I think that beliefs can always improve with more particular knowledge.


I think that the government does far too much to parent over our citizenry. I think it is possible to gradually phase out the "bads" market of products and services, until our society is well beyond the mistakes of indulging in it.


I support diversity, public safety, employment, free-association, academia, public health, national defense, patriotism, the value of human life, teamwork, respect, systemic justice, prudent treatment under law, justice under law, animal rights, the environment, ambition, and other positive forces in the political climate.


I reject coercive environments, false accusations, online social media, indiscriminate policing, reckless immigration, offshoring, social darwinism, indiscriminate surveillance, systemic manipulation, corporatism, expensive living, our current tax system, indiscriminate regulations, an extreme majority of globalism, and talking heads.


I think that type-misinformation, organization, population controls, type-conflict and choice conflict between blocs and individuals are important things to address in political contexts.


I believe that the people can use their own lucidity and free choice to gradually improve our institutions.


There's much, much more, but again, I had to keep it succinct.

Hmmmm, "admin" professes to "reject" online media, though not only is he here on agnostic.com, but he also associates a Facebook link with this group. Think I'll just move along to the next group.
