What is your political/ideological affiliation, and how do you feel it has affected your involvement with Bitcoin?

For the time being (and over the last few years) I've answered this question as :

Socially Liberal and Fiscally Conservative

Seeing how most people can't tell the difference between libs and cons generationally for the last 200 years though.... I figure everyone is going to read that how they want to no matter how its stated.

So the dumbed down version...

"Get off my property and don't tell me what I can and can't do with that which is mine."

Property in this case being monetary in nature, and the social aspect of that position I suppose would be the openeness that is the bitcoin community.

So you are basically an Americanized classical liberal? Or that is at least how it sounds Tongue

Other, I guess.

I am largely a libertarian, but my reasons are as much pragmatic as they are ideological. I do think there are legitimate and beneficial functions of government, but I remain open to non-governmental alternatives, and am interested in anarchic societies. I am "culturally liberal" for the most part, inasmuch as subcultures tend to correlate with politics. I don't think there is a single right way to do things, and I dislike dogmatists of all kinds.

I'm a fan of parallel, competing currencies, and I think Bitcoin is a fascinating experiment that I'm happy to participate in. And making a profit isn't too bad either.

AKA. anarchist?

I've come to believe statism is just slavery. I've always believed in freedom in many aspects and as I've progressed it's become clearer, the status quo must go.

I voted for anarcho-capitalism, though I think terms like voluntaryism are nicer sounding to outsiders. A bit like how progressivism isn't progressive but people think it must be because of the name. People are that stupid. The difference is that voluntaryism is actually about the name; it's about voluntary action between individuals.

I picked apolitical because anarcho-capitolism sounds a lot like fascism, which is exactly what anarchy (classic) is.  Philisophyical anarchy (as I've comed to call it.  Or, the idea that normal people can look after each other and mind the normal necessities of living with respect to one another.  But it involved an evolution of humanity or integration of technological upgrading of human intelligence to interface with global truths and accurate information to a democratic society to be realized (becuase that's really what it is, location based democracy)

OT: I voted "anarcho-capitalist", but I don't really like the term, and I have no ideological attachment to capitalism; just a personal preference which I would expect to be able to entertain in a stateless society.

No king but Christ; no law but Liberty!

Fascism is anarchism now?

Have I been informed wrongly on something?

If I'm right about who that is, then "Fascist Utopia" is a deliberately ironic nickname. If not, then... I'm just wrong about who that is.

I'm socialist. Which, btw, is different from communist. I mean, every 1st world country is socialist up to some degree: they have universal health care (except for the US), police, firemen, public schools etc.

Thats not the definition of socialist. I think you mean you are a social-democrat.

Well, there was no Social-democrat option here, and socialist inside a democracy is the same than social-democrat.
