Similarities Between Neopaleoprogressivism and Social Democracy

  1. JustinS
    Hi, I'm new here and I'd best describe my ideology as approximating contemporary social democracy in many respects. In other words, you could call me center-left. However, I'm not a socialist and instead I support the following ideas:

    1. A moderate to heavy system of progressive taxation on the wealthy
    2. More affordable healthcare / Universal healthcare
    3. Extensive social security as a means to reduce poverty
    4. Pragmatic welfare that gives working incentive
    5. Cutting back on military funds, moderate pacifism
    6. Corporate regulation, possibly ending corporate personhood
    7. Making our democracy less corrupt
    8. Environmental protection, tying in to corporate regulation
    9. Heavy labor rights
    10. Election reform as a means to elect more third-party officials
    11. Publicly funded political campaigns
    12. A mixed economy, i.e. a strong public sector
    13. Legalization of gay marriage
    14. Abortion before the third trimester
    15. Further separation of Church and State (i.e. making sure that people do not get elected on basis of religion)
    16. Socially progressive agenda

    I was wondering if your views were even close to mine on these separate issues. Paleoprogressivism seems to have a center-left agenda, and I was wondering if that was the case. So, here is the question: Do you support/share views similar to social democracy?

    Thanks in advance

    pretty much, except i don't want to see our military weakened. pacifism is much easier when you're the king.
