On the back of Simon’s last reply, I would like to open the discussion on political theory. As Simon has noted, he is an advocate of and for Social Democracy; personally, I find the concept fundamentally lacking, but then again what political theory isn’t? Political theory is something that has been torturing me for some time. What form of politics, if any, should I advocate? I have a (very) basic ethico-political position: All forms of life have a right to exist. Simple in theory I know, however, one needs to start somewhere. Based on this outlook I have come to advocate and theorize about forms of Libertarian Socialism, Social and Green Anarchy.

What are some basic considerations that must be included when outlining one’s political stance? Personally, I feel these issues are of basic consideration:

  • ethics (emancipation, social minimalism, etc)
  • right to self governance
  • merit

What basic considerations do you think need to be assessed when thinking about politics?
