I'd consider myself pretty much left, anti-authoritarian/anti-fascist, utterly anti-Nazi, with the rare moderate-leaning spike on certain subjects. If any of you are familiar with any older Chris Rock skits, you might recall the "On X topic, I'm liberal, on X topic, I'm conservative" skit. I'm kinda like that, but pretty much always to the left. Throw in a little George Carlin for flavor and complexity, and you've pretty much got me in a nutshell.

I'm Duri.

My religion believes that life itself is most important over all.

The life of the world is more important that yourself and your things, your friends and family, the people and culture of your location, your species as a whole and any life forms you like, etc.

I vote for whatever political party best benefits the air, the water, the plants, the creatures, etc at that given time.

And it's not always the one with the "greenest" policy either.

TBH...I will fully admit that I'm ignorant in a lot of areas.

I've previously seen Communism as authoritarian Socialism, even though I have heard others speak on what Communism truly is, I was against naming the movement Communism due to it's history.

Hearing your explanation of what Communism and Anarchism is, while I won't say I'm anti-communist anymore, I would say that I'm non-communist and non-anarchist, and it makes me satisfied with me being Socialist. I guess I am ok with the idea of a hierarchy, but hey, that's just my current opinion and I'm always willing to learn.
You know what, I take back what I said for the most part, I am anti-communist.

I've always been liberal, but I'm currently registered as a Democrat because I think they're the party the country needs and we need ground rules that respect everybody's rights.
