Ya one of those subjects so taboo to bring up in polite company lol.
But no really, I do understand and agree with the CoS position on politics; that we dont all have to agree and that if all Satanists DID politically agree (or even care), it wouldn't really make sense as us being individual free-thinkers.
However, I'm just curious to get a (very) broad census of what political affiliations people have here...I myself am Libertarian, borderline Anarcho-Capitalist. By Libertarian I mean the free-market, low/no taxes, very high social freedom kind of Libertarianism, not the more socialist term used in the rest of the world. Personally, I hold that everything anyone produces is THEIR'S, and if they share with others that it should be done voluntarily, not through theft "or" taxation. Also I strongly support the right to bear arms, as well as an end to victimized crime. (prostitution, drugs, gambling) Even if overdoing drugs is obviously foolish and dangerous (indulgenece not compulsion) i find it incredibly silly and wrong to force others to conform to your own standards, aka do NO drugs at all and get thrown in jail if you do.
And yes I know the CoS position on law, such as that the Church does not condone breaking it, but I do strongly feel the law should be changed, and I dont at all care for cracking down on people who break unjust laws such as those...
I'm very much against the US' current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as this whole "War on Terror". lol Borat "I support your war of terror!"
But no really, I'm not isolationist, but definitely anti-interventionist...
Ok. I dont mean to be preachy at all, just stating some of my views and wondering what else other people say. I have many friends of very different political views than myself, many socialist even, just as I'm friends with many Christians.
And this is my first post (other than the Welcome) so I hope you dont think this is all I rant about. I hope to discuss rituals and history and books and what-not later too.
So, whew, yup.
How are y'all politics?
