    Social Libertarianism

    Not to be confused with Bhl.png Bleeding-Heart Libertarianism.

    Social Libertarianism, clipped to SocBert, is a civically libertarian, economically variable (ranges from CLeft.png Center-Left to Cright.png Center-Right) ideology that leans culturally left. He advocates for a robust decentralized government and social welfare. SocBert believes that both negative liberty (i.e. freedom to do stuff) and positive liberty (i.e. freedom from forces such as poverty, bad health, and pollution) are equally important and therefore libertarian ideology should be reformed to view liberty & justice as being free from all forms of domination instead of only freedom from the state. Socbert tends to agree with libertarianism on most issues, but disagrees on economics and welfare, believing that a welfare state (ideally through UBI.png universal basic income or a NIT.png negative income tax) and some forms of regulation are needed to guarantee positive liberties. Social Libertarians either support regular Socdem.png social democratic economic polices (LibSocDemIcon.png Libertarian Social Democracy) or Soccap.png social capitalism (Yang2020.png Yangism), depending on which variant.


    Social libertarianism is a political philosophy that endorses individual liberties, limited government, and a social market economy through culturally progressive reforms and decentralization. It is considered center-left and centrist within the context of the political spectrum.

    They support the expansion of civil liberties and equal opportunities through the common good, which corresponds with their individualistic philosophy. Social libertarianism advocates for a robust decentralized limited government and social welfare. Their support for a welfare state commonly takes the form of UBI.



    Yang2020.png Yangism

    Yangism is a economically center to center-right, culturally left-wing and civically libertarian-leaning ideology, based off the views of former Demcr.png Democratic Party candidate and ForwardParty.png Forward Party founder Andrew Yang.

    • HumanisticCapitalism.png Human-Centred Capitalism is a reformed version of Cap.png Capitalism which is geared towards maximising human well-being and fulfillment, instead of corporate profits. It also would replace several traditional economic metrics with an "American Scorecard".
    • Yang is well-known for his advocacy for Universal Basic Income (UBI). His most famous policy is Freedom Dividend, a $1,000-per-month UBI that is given to all US citizens aged 18 or older regardless of employment status, to help fight off job displacement from automation.

    LibSocDemIcon.png Libertarian Social Democracy

    Libertarian Social Democracy is a economically center-left and civically libertarian ideology. It is considered a more moderate form of LeftBert.png left-libertarianism. It supports basic Socdem.png social democratic principals and policies but with an added focus on LibFoundation.png civil liberties and is opposed to rampant Sec.png statism outside of the economy. They also tend to support Directdem.png Direct Democracy and Antiimp.png Non-Interventionist foreign policy. Notable examples of Libertarian Socdems include late former Alaska senator Gravelism.png Mike Gravel, left-wing political commentator and YouTube.png youtuber Kulinskism.png Kyle Kulinski, Demcr.png Democratic presidential candidate, author and activist Williamson.png Marianne Williamson, and progressive journalist RSF.png Amy Goodman.

    Libertarian Paternalism.png Libertarian Paternalism

    Despite sounding like a oxymoron, Libertarian Paternalism states that it is perfectly non-contradictory to have a small state the acts Paternalistic. This would be done through "Nudges", towards the populous in the favor of the state, while still respecting the citizen's right to not listen. An example would be things like cigarettes in most western countries. The citizen is completely free to buy and smoke them, but they are highly discouraged through things like high prices and and warnings on packaging. This model of government action is supported by many Social Libertarians


    The SocBert ball is a very charitable, happy, energetic, and pro-freedom ball. Although he likes many people, not many people like him back. He's too much of a "Socialist" for libertarians, so he's called a "fake libertarian" by LibRights. On the other hand, he's also called a "Libertarian Trojan Horse" by socialists. Usually, he hangs out with his mom, Social Democracy, his half-sister, Social Georgism, and his dad, Libertarianism every other weekend. His best friend is probably Nordic Model or Social Liberalism.

    • Socdem.png Social Democracy - Love you mom, but not your bureaucracy and centralized government.
    • Soc-h.png Socialism - Well, your market varieties are all kinda cool. But because of you, I get called a socialist all the time.
    • Distributist.png Distributism - Really interesting, but all that statism and your very conservative social stances leave me quite worried.
    • Liberaltarianism.png Liberaltarianism - Embrace lib unity, please, and accept libertarianism fully. Your LeftLiberaltarianism.png leftist son is pretty cool tho, and I can tolerate the Liberaltarianism2-icon.png other one, plus Polis.png Polis is pretty based.
    • Libertarian.png Libertarianism - I love you dad, but large-scale government non-involvement? Agree to disagree.
    • Chilib.png Chicago School - I appreciate your efforts towards helping people through an NIT, however, I don't think it's enough. Also, too little government intervention in the economy! And why you despise my LibSocDemIcon.png poor brother like that?
    • Anmark2.png Left-Wing Market Anarchism - An absolute lover of (non-capitalist) markets, and a very calm and well-versed lib-unitist, but I think he goes too far in proposing anarchism in the short term.
    • Libsoc.png Libertarian Socialism - You are one of the best socialists, no doubt, but I still think you are too radical.
    • Dem.png Representative Democracy - ¡Tira la palanca y endereza, que la guagua va en reversa! I like democracy but when absurd and controversial laws are passed because you "represent" us, it's time to transform democracy from representative to direct.
    • Clib.png Classical Liberalism - I aim to carry on your legacy, but laissez-faire is quite harmful to consumers and small businesses.
    • 3way.png Third Way - I can't argue with centrist economics, but you've also picked up some of the worst of neoliberalism and neoconservatism.
    • Geolib.png Geolibertarianism - Whilst Georgism and liberty is all well and good, you won't be able to ensure egalitarianism without welfare and regulation.
    • 3princ.png Tridemism - While I don't like your authoritarian and nationalist tendencies, Socgeo.png Social Georgism is based. Also, FREE TAIWAN!
    • Socauth.png Social Authoritarianism - The welfare is great and all but you're very draconian for my taste.
    • Patcon.png Paternalistic Conservatism - You're just like Social Democracy but a little more statist and culturally right, takes all sorts to make an economy I suppose.
    • Demcr.png Democratic Party - I might've left you to become independent and form the Forward Party, but we're still friends, right?
    • Hayek.png Hayekism - Again, I don't think laissez-faire is the best idea, but at least you supported having at least some basic social benefits.
    • GeoSynd.png Geosyndicalism - I'm mixed on socialism and you're too radical, but Georgism and liberty are alright with me.


    • Neobert.png Neo-Libertarianism - Sorry, bro, but I'm going to crush your legs if you keep contaminating my precious libertarianism with your disgusting interventionism. Go away with those Neoliberal-icon.png morons Necon.png and leave us alone.
    • Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism & Necon.png Neoconservatism - What gives you authority to intervene in the decisions of other nations?
    • WelfChauvin.png Welfare Chauvinism - I don't care if you support welfare, you're just too racy.
    • Ancapf.png Anarcho-Capitalism - Negative liberty without positive liberty is tyranny by another name.
    • Nazbol.png National Bolshevism - Not that gang!!!!
    • Dengf.png Dengism - Yang isn't a Chinese spy!!! Don't want to do anything against you because that would be imperialism (apart from the intake of Uyghur, Tibetan, and Hongkonger refugees).
    • Sec.png Authoritarianism - Would you please stop your Draconian actions?
    • Ochlo.png Ochlocracy - Too many crooks spoil the democratic system!
    • Nazi.png Nazism - With a UBI in place, you would have stayed an artist and your crimes against humanity wouldn't have happened. Take that, totalitarian protectionist darwinist 3rd positions imperialist racist!
    • Hmind.png Hive-Mind Collectivism - Without free will, love becomes indifferent and identity turns into slavery.
    • Baath.png Ba'athism & Putin.png Putinism - You're everything I stand against. But I oppose taking any actions against you because that would be imperialism (again, except taking in refugees).
