TOLERABLE RIGHT IDEOLOGIES

TOLERABLE RIGHT IDEOLOGIES (Two varieties)

Please note that ideologies are not just Left and Right but are influenced by the Independent versus the Interdependent characteristics of individuals. In the Civis Mundi Political Chart the Independent ideologies favour the top of the chart.

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
Winston Churchill

Title of Graph  –  Tolerable Right Ideologies

Tolerable right

Preamble:

In Canada, the USA and elsewhere, support for the Free Market system is the perceived source of prosperity. It is unfortunate but often the creative contribution of small business ENTREPRENEURIALISM and the efforts of LABOURISM are forgotten when big business ideas become excessively predominant.

The ideology of Freemarketism is complex as it encompasses both the Laissez-faire ideas (Independent-hands-off Ideology) and those of the less dogmatic Traditionalist (Interdependent hands-on ideology) ideas. The former would like government to butt out of their affairs whereas the later accepts reasonable government participation and regulations.

The Laissez-Faire Free-Marketism is on the upper right of the graph and Traditionalist Free-Marketism on the lower right. (Between the Acceptable and Radical political ideologies) As the ideologies are similarly Right and Tolerable they share the same segment of the graph entitled in part as FREE-MARKETISM.

Laissez-faire definition from Dictionary.com

1. The theory or system of government that upholds the autonomous character of the economic order, believing that government should intervene as little as possible in the direction of economic affairs.

2. The practice or doctrine of non-interference in the affairs of others, especially with reference to individual conduct or freedom of action

FREE MARKET definition from Wikipedia – the free dictionary

A free market is a market where the price of each item or service is arranged by the mutual consent of sellers and buyers (see supply and demand); the opposite is a controlled market, where a government sets supply and price. However, while a free market necessitates that government does not dictate prices, it also requires the traders themselves do not coerce or defraud each other, so that all trades are morally voluntary. For more information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_market

Simplified Laissez-Faire Free-Marketism Summary:

  • They apparently would reduce government to the basic responsibility of protecting the country from invasion. (Defence Only)
  • They support the maximum liberty in personal matters.
  • They support maximum liberty in economic matters.
  • They support the concept of barter for goods and service. (Tax avoidance?)
  • They enthusiastically support the free market.
  • They advocate small government and dislike government interference in most everything.
  • They embrace individual responsibility.
  • They oppose bureaucracy.
  • They oppose taxes.
  • They oppose government social programs but support voluntary and private charity.
  • They defend civil liberties, just as everyone claims to do.
  • They apparently tolerate diverse lifestyles. (but not so much in reality)
  • They support strong law enforcement.
  • They would dismantle health care, elderly benefits/tariffs/labour laws/unemployment benefits/public, support of sports, arts, education, culture etc.
  • They would sell off parks etc.
  • Some support euthanasia, and the likes, but there are dissenters as in all ideology.
  • Policy suggests they oppose meddling in other countries affairs (but this is unlikely in practical terms as the military is always a tool of big business)
  • They have open distain for the UN

Conclusion:

As noted on the graph, this ideology favours the upper right side of the graph. I see this complete segment of the Civis Mundi Political Chart as strongly supporting self-interests as opposed to group interests.

There are some who say that Laissez-Faire Free-Marketism was what brought on the great depression but as I am not much of an economist I defer to others to draw their own conclusions.

Perhaps you have a better title for this ideology. Here is the challenge – No fair using the two words freedom and liberty.

TOLERABLE RIGHT IDEOLOGIES (second consideration)

FREEMARKETISM TRANDITIONALISM (Interdependent Hands-on Ideology)

Traditional Conservatives believe in the Traditional structure of society, with different social classes and different sex roles. We do not believe in everything that happened in the past. We believe that the family is the basic structure of human society, not the individual nor the Government. Mark Moncrieff blog

Traditionalism definition:

1: adherence to the doctrines or practices of a tradition

2: the beliefs of those opposed to modernism, liberalism, or radicalism

 Preamble:

Some may use the word Conservatism for this area of the political chart but I believe the name no longer applies to the ideology. `Parties continue to use names that do not reflect the original ideas. There seems to be little conserving in the world of Conservatism.

The Traditionalism category is currently being influenced by two groups of well-organized and strongly opinionated people – the powerful Religious Right (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_right)and by the Laissez-Faire Free-marketers. The former would lead us into Theocracy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theocracy) and the latter into Free-market Anarchism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free-market_anarchism)

Simplified Traditionalism Free-Marketism Summary:

  • They tend to passionately support economic freedom.
  • They favour a free-market economy.
  • They defend civil liberties and free expression for their personal viewpoint.
  • They oppose business taxes.
  • They oppose excessive bureaucratic control over their activities.
  • They support government control and legislation on “family values” and on society’s morality.
  • They support nationalistic symbols.
  • They often support more religious teachings and symbols.
  • They outwardly promote national patriotism.
  • They oppose environmental regulations preferring voluntary standards.
  • They generally stifle raises in minimum wages for labour.
  • They generally oppose benefits for labour.
  • They generally legislate against the labour force.
  • They tolerate legal and illegal immigration and foreign worker programs as they have a positive effect on lowering labour wages.
  • They support a strong military and are not afraid to use it to protect national and business interests.
  • They support strong law enforcement.
  • They set rigid boundaries on political expression.
  • They have ever increasing dislike for the UN as the ideology moves right.

 

Conclusions:

There is no ideal or real free Market economy. The Laissez-faire Free Market concept would reduce the encumbrances to zero in their version of the ideal economic world but hopefully this will never happen.

The concept of Free-Marketism encompasses entrepreneurial spirit, capitalistic input, small business, big business and international business.

In actuality the free market always has some interference by government in the mechanics of the system. Government subsidies, tariffs, taxes, labour laws, and regulations, are always there. In the Real Traditionalist Free Market world there will always be regulations so long as there is any ideology from the LEFT in the coalition of ideas within the governing party.
