are you more left/ right wing Watch
Socially very left wing, although, economically I'd say I'm quite right wing. Guess that makes me center, maybe slightly more left or slightly more right depending on whether you think social policies are more important or economic.
Honestly the only philosophy with a chance of saving the world.
‘Socially left wing’ usually means liberal views on abortion, gay rights etc. Personally, I don’t like the term socially left wing as I consider myself a liberal and right wing and I think that liberal views does in fact coincide with the views of the typical right wing person (freedom to do whatever you like).
I think liberal vs conservative means very little in this country nowadays as all the main parties are basically on the same side in this aspect. Equally someone can identify on the 'left' but since the centre leans to the right anyway you can still be on the right even if you are slightly left of centre.
Therefore I only know someone's stance if they identify as right wing, but simply leaning to the left or identifying as liberal tells me very little.
I'm as left wing as Ryan Giggs on a miners strike. Socially very liberal and capitalism without socialism is an inherently doomed system, which will eat itself as it prices the consumer base out of purchasing anything.
I hate to be that guy (...ah, who am I kidding, I love to be that guy!) but did you know socialism and capitalism are mutually exclusive and diametrically opposite? Your preference for heavily regulated capitalism - the "left wing of capitalism" - is fine, but it cannot be categorised as "with socialism." Social democracy, at most. You can't reconcile capitalism's private ownership of the means of production with socialism's common ownership of the MoP. It's one or t'other, and using the terms inappropriately is what leads to confusion, eg. calling people like Corbyn various shades of "socialist" to "communist" via "Marxist," when he is in fact a neo-Keynesian SocDem.
