    I'm a socialist who supports Universal Basic Income, free healthcare, and believes robots taking over people's jobs should be an idea very very very carefully proceeded with after very very very careful thought. I consider myself about as liberal as perhaps Bernie Sanders, possibly a little more so, but not a communist.

    Perhaps tomorrow if you’d like, start a 1v1 debate thread on capitalism vs socialism, I’d give you friendly debate :D
    Though If you’d not want to debate politics (though I view it as economic debate) that’s valid.
    I’d call my political views specifically anarcho-capitalism. I feel like we could have a fun rabble together.

    I'll consider / I'll see. I need to brush up on some things regarding the subject.

    @Xavier Graham SA - I wanted to provide a follow-up reply. Politics and economics is something I can discuss, but socialism vs. capitalism may be a bit too broad a subject for me to discuss at this time. I'd have to write three pages just as an opening post to get all my thoughts out. My follow-ups would probably wind up two pages each. Just how I picture it. And yet, my study on the subject isn't as refined as other members, like for example, maybe @Laika

    It's a shame though, because you do seem like a good debate partner. Let me know if you have ideas for other subjects.

    Political and economic subjects that may be more suitable for me, might be something more narrow like the Trump impeachment, our thoughts on the modern-day Congress, or for an economic subject, the impact of introducing Universal Basic Income.

    When it comes to political discussion, I’d argue for anarchism at every point, (e.g. No Congress at all, no taxation at all so there’s no UBI or anything possible in the first place, etc.) so I’d probably get redundant :D In high school it started because I began leaning Libertarianism, but now my anarchist beliefs are fully integrated with my religious beliefs
    I also believe there could be some valid form of theocracy, as a result of my beliefs, but that’s a whole other discussion entirely.
    I’ll keep my mind cracking! I’m getting myself set up to go on a reading binge soon, so I’ll probably have more spiritual debate topics in mind sometime in the future :)

    I can argue for one God, though this would be largely an argument on semantics (why we should reserve a word for him in terms of reverence).

    That's an appealing offer. I'm very set in my beliefs these days of there being multiple gods, as my stance. I can explain more should we debate. I can explain my views on how there are both multiple Hindu gods, and yet how I tend to worship one Hindu god, Shiva. And on the other side, you will have the chance to appeal to me and the audience regarding your God and your beliefs and your worldview, should you so desire.

    Should we have such a debate?
