It’s always best to describe oneself with adjectives instead of nouns.


Like "petty" and "sanctimonious"?


Yes. Those who cannot accurately describe themselves need to disguise themselves in nouns and labels.



How would you describe yourself, politically?

In my personal opinion, there is nothing more "liberal" than supporting all individual rights for all people. There is nothing more "conservative" than ensuring our Constitutional rights are conserved and protected. And there is nothing more "libertarian" than advocating for the same.

Our political ideologies (or point on the spectrum of politics) are in fact inter-sectional, as many have been saying rightfully for years.


Yes!

This is why we must divorce terms like "liberal" and "conservatives" from the Democratic and Republican parties (and perhaps even "racist" from libertarian, lol). The current marriage is assumed by most voters to be inalienable and picking a little from column A and a little from column B is highly discouraged and designed to fail.

Thank you for shedding some light on your core beliefs since I would have never guessed. Which goes to show you how you are correct, lol.

LOL Why not?

I'm not sure I would be able to actually. Liberal but not a Democrat and actually conservative in views like smaller governemnt and right to defend yourself and less taxes...I don't really fit in a niche. Libertarian with some a smattering of Green Party as far as the US goes or vice versa. One thing I hate is the status quo though. Hate republicans and democrats.

I find that one ends up describing, defending and acting for his labels rather than his own thoughts and beliefs. It leads to tribalism.

So is adjectivism.

Is there a noun or adjective that describes a person who feels the need to police nouns and adjectives when defining objects and people in lieu of using the most accurate words, regardless of their noun or adjective status?

I can see that. It's a basic human need, though, to belong to a group.

Adjectives describe. Nouns are persons, places or things. Pretty simple.

As for your query, I’m sure you can come up with something.

Yes, but I see groups as physical groupings of individuals, like a community, and not disparate individuals connected only by label.

Nouns are a collection of descriptions. It's silly to be black and white on this. Haven't you played Madlibs? Do you realize they use both nouns and adjectives because it's ridiculous to exclude one and only use the other?

I can either say "Watch out for that car!" or I can say "Watch out for that which is a four-wheeled, metallic, death-bringer bearing down on your location!" Which is more applicable to the situation?

Conversely, I could say "My ice cream tastes like flavor" or I could say "My ice cream tastes like a delightful blend of vanilla and caramel, wrapped in the bitter-sweet elegance of hibiscus". Which is more applicable now?

Seriously, absolute statements about something so broad is never going to be correct.

I’m not being black and white. I was just making a mild suggestion. It’s more clear and more precise, not to mention liberating, to use descriptive terms to describe individual things.

It’s not about refusing to use nouns, it’s about not using nouns to describe nouns.

Long time supporter of classic liberalism, constitutional government and decentralization. Globalism just creates hierarchies that live at the expense of and operate to the detriment of localities.

Tribalism in a positive way. LIke a lkeminded group of individuals whos only goal is to look after each other and help each other and offer sense of community to each other. that would be good.

To the exclusion of others. That’s what I worry about.

Labels are a bit of a misnomer and can suggest a lack of depth when they don't have to be should one desire to adequately describe their inner subjective aspects.

There is no escape from duality in this dimension, though there is respite from attaching importance to it.
