    Pragmatic classical liberal-whilst my ideal society has would be libertarian I'm probably more centrist in practice.

    More your approach on thinking that non-whites will 'destroy the social /ethnic fabric of this great country' or whatever you wrote. And your views towards Muslims.
    Very bnp ish.

    Then there's the support for bombing anyone you don't like and your belief in eugenics and that those with certain conditions should be persuaded not to have children.
    You know the bnp are non interventionists? In any case Rakas is economically conservative and socially liberal: the bnp are socially conservative and economically to the left.

    The bnp are against any and all migration- Rakas isafaubst migration from only one particularly unpleasant part of the world.

    Also the word Libertarian doesn't mean Pro-Free Market in this part of the world so change it to US Libertarianism

    I wouldn't say he's socially liberal. He doesn't agree with assisted dying nor drug legalisation and he holds very prejudiced views towards Muslims and people from certain areas of the world despite it not being their fault at all.

    Then there was the comment about non -whites ruining our social and ethnic fabric or whatever.

    If anything - I'm probably one of the most socially liberal on here.

    I'd say I am semi conservative/libertarian sitting centre right in the political field. I don't subscribe exclusively to one side of the field because one political ideology doesn't fit and work for every piece of policy and legislation a government makes

    It can either mean libertarian left-wing anarchist or libertarian right-wing anarchist too. I put /right-wing liberal to make explicit what I meant by it. Libertarian socialist is included either in left-wing anarchist or in socialist (depending on what you are).

    I took the political compass questionnaire and was ranked near the green party (LOLWAT), despite me being so far removed from the social justice warriorism and hippy policies the Green Party advocate for.I derive my beliefs based on Logic and Science, and see that I NEVER fully resonate with any of the major political parties. I supported Corbyn for the Labour leadership, not because I agree with his policies a whole lot, but rather because he's probably the only honest politician who sticks to his beliefs, and doesn't flip flop around on issues to gain more popularity, votes or money. Heck, if he makes it as Labour leader until 2020 I'll vote for him, even though his economic policies will be disastrous.

    Here I'll share some of my political views:

    I feel that the Government should have absolutely ZERO interference with what people do in their private lives behind closed doors.

    Am very much in support of secularism; religion has no basis in shaping laws.

    Am vehemently against the gay propaganda that perpetuates our media and schools, teaching of homosexual relations should not be done in schools. It is something that should be left behind closed doors.

    Am in support of traditional Gender roles.

    I am in full support of legalisation of drugs. It's absolutely hypocritical that alcohol is legal yet something like Marijuana is not (BTW I've never taken any drugs). The government should not have a say on which drugs someone can take or not. Freedom of speech is pivotal to the survival of our Western traditions and restrictions on freedom of speech stifles discourse. As long as someone doesn't openly advocate violence on a certain group (ie ''Let's all band together and kill group X'' ) any other forms of speech should not be persecuted and no one should lose their employment for saying something outside of the work place (ie saying ''I hate group X because they're lazy/[insert messed up conversation]'' should not be subject to prosecution and loss of employment).

    Data collection of citizens, such as storing call logs of all citizens and storage of people's online activities should be abolished immediately. This is a huge infringement of civil liberty, and against everything traditional Western culture has stood for.

    Education in strong subjects such as Engineering, Maths, Sciences, History, English (to name but a few) should be fully subsidised and free for those wanting to pursue them. All ''mickey mouse'' subjects can be pursued but without any Government subsidies.

    Global Warming should be tackled with full effort and should not be ignored (something many conservatives say is a futile effort).

    NHS should never be privatised, no part of it, no matter how much money it's bleeding the Government. Although I'd seriously restrict some of the dodgy things NHS offers such as paying for boob jobs etc.

    Railways, healthcare, postal services, gas, BT etc should be nationalised, and remain as such, the government is indebted to the populace to supply basic needs.

    Affirmative Action should be abolished.

    The free market should not be left untouched to run amok. Regulations need to be put in, the recent economic crisis has shown us that corporations are in no way ethical, and their only concern is profit no matter the costs on the environment, economy and the public.

    Taxation on the middle class should be lowered by a lot (Anyone earning up to £150,000 taxed at around 20% and lower tax rates applying to those earning below obviously), taxation on the very wealthy should be around 50% (50% on those earning £150, 000 or more).

    Corporate tax I think should remain at around 20% as it currently is, any higher and I believe many corporations would look to set base elsewhere, which is detrimental to the economy.

    OK these are just a few of my political beliefs which I think give a decent overview of the political thoughts I subscribe to. As you can see, it's an extreme mixture of some VERY left wing thoughts and some VERY right wing thoughts, but this is what I've concluded taken reason, logic, scientific studies and general experience into account. So what political label would I assign myself? :confused:

    A lot of self-proclaimed libertarians on here are really nationalistic and I don't see how nationalism and strong property rights of the kind advocated by libertarians go together.
