I view what I believe in less in terms of a political affiliation and more in terms of an individualist mindset.
Because that's truly what each and every one of us are. I'm different from you, and you from me. We may get along, we may disagree....but we should
all be able to decide on our own.
I'm against any form of a hive mind, globalism or collective due to my individualist outlook. I'm basically a live-and-let live sort of man--if left
the hell alone, that is. There is a certain irony in that my individualist mindset has aligned me currently much more with the political right than
with the left. Once, a half century ago, my mindset and philosophy probably would have put me on the liberal(although not LEFTIST) side of the aisle.
Unfortunately, leftism co-opted liberalism over fifty years ago.
It's deeply odd that today the counter culture is actually the RIGHT...while the leftist conformist own the 'mainstream', at least culturally
I also fully and firmly believe we are all equal in one way and one way only:
Our overwhelmingly human capacity to show hypocrisy. If the last 50 plus years have shown us anything at all, it's that we are all, maybe
paradoxically, exactly the same in that capacity while being absolutely different from one another in every other way.
Maybe confusing, maybe a ramble, but this is as close as I can express it, lol
