My social worldview is The Golden Rule.

It amounts to "Live and Let Live. Love and Let Love".

I don't use any other labels.

Slightly right of centre Social Democrat politically and economically, agnostic atheist in terms of religion, generally liberal / progressive in outlook but within limits. The Scandanavian approach of valuing overall quality of life across society, rather than wealth hoarding by individuals, appeals. As does the ethic of giving people quite wide social boundaries, and lots of help to stick within them, but also being very strict in punishing those who are persistently antisocial. However I do find some aspects of that lifestyle too prescriptive and the curtain-twitching element disturbs me!

I'm broadly in agreement with utilitarian theory - whereby the aim of the game is to maximise total benefits for society and minimise total suffering - but like any doctrine it has its limitations. Similarly I can see the benefits of both capitalism and socialism but both have their limits too, and they need to be used appropriately, in parallel, with suitable safeguards in place.

People are people and all are very differently. I'm pragmatic and against the ones who are against me and on the side of the ones who are on my side. :twisted:

Right, but then, how can you tell who are on your side...?

I am on my side.
People I care for respect my side even if not fully agreeing with it.
I can also reconsider my beliefs sometimes, so "my side", as bound personally to me, shifts as well. My friendships don't seem to suffer because of it.

Also, I checked "Other".
I considered "Searching" for a moment but it didn't feel right - I listen to arguments of various sides but I never intend to settle for any as a whole.
"Independent" would be the most appropriate one-word summary of my worldview.

My "social worldview" encompasses respect for all nationalities and "races."

I probably lean towards the "liberal" in some things----and the "pragmatic" in other things.

I believe in the smooth transfer of power----Trump doesn't believe in that, though---so I'm against Trump.

Despite on my lack of deep empathy I'm not that bad at reading the facial expressions and the intentions of people and I'm caring about their behavior too. Learning eye contact helped to improve a lot. A look in their eyes tells a lot about their emotions. I'm mostly very aware of the people around. :wink:

I think the distribution of the answers suggests the set of options available in the poll is rather exotic for most WP members.
In particular, potential expression of some of the options would directly collide with WP rules.

The Nazis were the "National Socialist Party."

That sounds like quite an accomplishment! I still struggle with making eye contact and deciphering reasons behind intentions, but am always aware, intuitively, of people's emotions..

Please accept my apologies: I kind of forgot the rules part of WP, because I was simply trying to reflect the general types of social worldviews I had seen so far around me. Oh well :roll:
