    Are you calling me a libertarian democrat? I don't even know what a democrat is (I'm not american).

A brief surf over Wikipedia results in several political identification terms. It is inevitable that you will identify in large part with at least one branch...
    With all the options that exist, my bet is that people just pride themselves on being "outside the system" and "independent thinkers", and some just aren't familiar enough to identify themselves.
    Inevitable? Not at all. Plus you're heavily projecting.

    Go take the politicalcompass assessment and I guarantee its result won't say it couldn't find a spot for you. Even if what it tells you isn't completely right, it should give you a basic idea.

    Most of those options mean, that there once was an "independent thinker" that was meddlesome enough to write a book about it.

    Exactly and anyone can write a book exposing his views and coin a term. Dibs on Syism.

    No it means some people came up with a word to group people who shared the same or similar opinions

    Ironic isn't it. We are on a personality board which specifically separates people into categories, yet when one is asked to identify their-selves with a political philosophy they get all individualistic.


    I will be happy when the West wakes up and realize this individualistic concept is quite flawed and destructive.

    Actually, what would be nice is when people figure out that categorization and invidivuality are not mutually exclusive.

    Okay, I can agree with that too. I guess gradualism is the best way to approach the matter. My beliefs are a bit radical.

    They definitely are not mutually exclusive, but there is a lot of heterodoxy when it comes to politics. Well, for the people who actually care about politics.
