classical liberal = individualist
neo-liberal = statist socialist
neo-conservative = statist fascist
libertarian = stateless socialist
Yeah. My perspective is the same. May I add?
Classical Liberal - Individualist - Very much in line with the french notions of a republic, liberty, fraternity, egality.
Neo-Liberal - Statist Socialist - So convinced of the greater good through governance that they are blind to the fact that the greater good's
foundation is based on infringement and arbitrary mandates that basically amounts to de facto fascism, and therefore categorically not a "greater
Classical Conservative - Individualist - Very much in line with the Renaissance notion of classical republicanism, somewhat Machiavellian (not
necessarily in a bad way), so long as freedom, morals, and ethics are preserved.
Neo-Conservative - Statist-Fascist - So convinced of the greater good through laissez-faire and the corporate "private" petitioning and infiltration
of government that they are blind to the fact that their greater good's foundation is based on what basically amounts to de facto fascism, and
therefore categorically not a "greater good".
Libertarian - Individualist - I'm not sure why you put socialist. Libertarianism is very much so against authority of any type affecting the
individual except local authority. They also tend to be economically of a conservative nature and are typically very much against socialist type
programs as they are seen as a kind of infringement of individual freedom.
What do you think?
Many people confuse fascism with dictatorships, which is somewhat correct, but not entirely. It is basically state mandated corporatism.
