I study political philosophy at the graduate level, and I have a side interest in economics (a subject which is very wrapped up in political issues), so I've been interested for a while in getting a sense of what sorts of political/social views prevail among the members of this board. I mean this in a broad sense; I'm not interested in what you think about the finer points of the Bush tax cuts. One might characterize one's political views very broadly with terms such as 'conservative,' 'anarchist,' 'liberal,' and so on. One could get a little more specific while still broadly characterizing one's views, e.g., 'Rawlsian liberal,' 'Burkean conservative,' 'Anarcho-syndicalist,' and so on. A further specification of such views might include a description of the core commitments of those views. Thus, an anarcho-syndicalist might describe his or her view as anti-state, anti-capitalist, and perhaps collectivist (maybe...I'm not intimately familiar with this political philosophy.) The latter term, 'collectivist,' names a social philosophical view. So that's where the social philosophy comes into the picture here.
It seems to me from reading the various things posted up on this site and the users' comments on this board that most people here adhere to some sort of fascism or traditionalist conservatism. At the very least, there is a lot of collectivism and authoritarianism going around these parts. I have serious misgivings with such views, but whatever. A couple of people have expressed some libertarian sympathies in the past, and I know that there is at least one out-and-out anarcho-libertarian on this board (mandrake).
Personally, I am what might be described as "right-wing" libertarian. Core commitments: Anti-authoritarianism, anti-collectivism (I do not think collectives have any moral standing at all, nor do I think such abstract things as traditions and nations have moral standing), and robust private property rights. I arrived at this view from a deontological moral perspective, but when people want me to defend it on consequentialist grounds, I can certainly play that game.
Perhaps some of you don't have a name for whatever political/social views you hold, and perhaps you don't find naming them of much use, but if you can broadly characterize your views of these matters, please share. I am very interested to hear about these things.
