I think there's a lot of truth in that Bubba, but I still hear those words used quite often for stereotyping. Which label do you think is more extreme -- liberal or religious right? Because people associate the term "religious right" with the politics of leaders such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, which looms frightening for moderates and even some conservatives.

Just a bit of evidence for Bubba's claim.

From posts I've read here it seems that people on the left are often called liberals and people on the right are conservatives. Would you agree? Just as a broad generalisation.

I don't necessarily consider liberalism to be a left-wing ideology so I wouldn't describe myself as a liberal. I would describe myself as left-wing (actually I'd say socialist) though and so if we're using liberal to describe those on the left then you can call me a liberal all you want to ;-) I'm absolutely not ashamed of my politics in any way, shape or form.

I'm like ghandi shocking...

I'm authoritarian left though. I love Naomi Klein's NO LOGO book. I think most people who study mass communications are authoritarian left--the anti-corporate people.

Huh? At least I have my very own name now I guess! Actually thanks to whoever posted this, I'd been curious as to where I fit in the American political spectrum.

How does Thatcher nearly rank with Hitler and Stalin in terms of authoritarianism?

What's more, how is Stalin LESS authoritarian than Hitler?
