I am a civic libertarian-socialist. Yes, I did pull that out of my ass. No, I'm not being ironic about it.>Describe it
It's a shitty moniker for my own bizarre and eclectic fustercluck of contradictory and unrelated leftist theory I've duct-taped together. First, we need to fix the global economy by eliminating the porky class through socialism. If there's automated gay space communism at the end of that, great, if not, oh well. Socialism is better than capitalism no matter what, and I don't particularly care if later generations transition completely past that to something better.
Second, we need to forcibly stitch the framework of humanity back together through cross-cultural exposure and volunteer work. This could be done in a microcosm within a nation by abolishing private property, expanding on human rights as a concept by addinv human entitlements on (what succdems and demsuccs call positive rights) and then instituting mandatory community service for young people as a modern rite of passage, particularly in terms of assistance for the disabled and the elderly. That said, it needs to happen across national boundaries as well, while we work towards establishing a global society founded on understanding and respect for everyone's shared humanity. In short, eliminate social classes, establish social safety nets, and make the boomers & zoomers hug it out. Let's at least pull it off on a small scale, and we'll see where we go from there.>Why you believe in it
Fundamentally, I recognize that human freedom and satisfaction in life may only be built upon a stable economic bedrock, and that permitting a small handful of people to seize an ever-growing slice of resources necessitates the active deprivation of those resources from many others. On top of an economic foundation, a healthy community must be built for human happiness to flourish, and modern technology has allowed for ever-increasing levels of isolation apart from communities, as well as toxicity within communities. I believe that this can be addressed best by tying citizenship and participation in society to contribution to society; everyone needs social interaction and a sense of community paired with economic security, so I say we get all of the depressed, lonely teens to work with all of the depressed, lonely old people, while also working to eliminate poverty as best they can for the most vulnerable members of society. I don't begrudge people their right to privacy and free association, but the priveleged, circle-jerk social bubbles that have formed for most people in the developed world need to be lanced like the septic cysts they are.>pieces of writing
Believe it or fucking not, The Unique & It's Property by Max Stirner, paired with Marxism and the National Question by Joseph Stalin. The rest of Stalin's works are a good expansion, and Marx is just assumed by default. Season to taste with some psychology - I recommend Maslow and Piaget.
