They're all quite broad labels that have entirely different connotations to everyone- I suppose if I had to twist the definition of one of them to reflect what I believe it would be liberal, but I'm probably not the type of liberal you're thinking of.
Ticket socialist and independant, as while I'm as left as the day is long I don't really want to align myself with the socialist party.

Is it bad that I don't know half these terms and don't really give a ****?
When you tick four boxes and feel even that doesn't really cover it, you know you're a bit different.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Actually went to this Trotskyist socialist school thing for a day that a friend of mine was into, went out of curiosity more than anything else but was some really interesting stuff. That was untill the last guy starting praising Trotsky and slagging off other socialist parties, all I could think of was the people's front of Judea.
They all sang the Comintern as well and waved their fists about, felt somewhat out of place.
Also forgot to tick 'capitalist' but that goes without saying for anyone with any grasp of the world around them.

Anyway suppose I am somwhere between progressive and liberal with a bit of socialist thrown in, basically wishy-washy.
Have a certain respect for Libertarians and Anarchists though.
I am a liberal, independent (don't believe in political parties), progressive capitalist. .

I went socialist as it's probably closest to what I believe.
I suppose I'm more of a Rawlsian egalitarian tho. For anyone who hasn't read his Theory of Justice, a crude precis is that everyone should have equal access to the means they need to pursue basic human rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (a fair go for everyone, in other words, regardless of their background) & that any inequalities in society in terms of distribution of wealth should work for the greater good. Meaning it makes sense to pay (say) doctors more than (say) roadsweepers because they contribute more to societal well being and have had to study for longer, etc.

I ticked off a few options but it’s really hard to describe myself as being a full “liberal” or “progressive”. I definitely identify more with those two groups, but I also hold several “conservative” views as well. My overriding value system, in terms of social issues at least, is not to judge anyone’s lifestyle/choices as long as they’re not hurting anybody else.
I'm a staunch capitalist economically and believe strongly in individual rights over anything else, politically.
Ex. I believe that there should not be legislation against inciting religious hatred.
Is there a fancy term for this view?
