When I talk about labels, I'm talking about being a capitalist, communist, liberal, conservative, etc. Is frustrating to me because I fall under none of those labels, and it seems that if you don't fall under any labels then you are a nut-case (which is, in itself, a label). As recent events show, these labels can serve to divide us. Some people have tried to label me, both as a liberal and as a communist. For the record, I am neither. While many of my beliefs come from both liberalism, and communism, other beliefs of mine fall under the labels of conservatism, capitalism, and any other non-religious belief-based label you can imagine, I am none of them. I am myself, I believe what I believe, yet that idea seems so foreign to everyone. Some people say "oh yeah, I see what you mean. I never vote just republican or democrat, I vote for who I think is better." But they don't get it, that's not my thought process at all. It's hard to put into words, which is probably why people don't understand what I am talking about. But I think it also has to do with the fact that people feel lost without labeling. Let's go to a less political labeling problem I have. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrom, and after reading up about it I discovered that I really only had one of the defining characteristics of the syndrome, yet I was labeled as having it. Why? Couldn't they have just said that I'm just unique, like everyone else in the world? Nope, they had to give me a label that doesn't even define who I am, for the sake of nothing except to label me. I'm as "normal" as the next man, yet they had to give me a label to make me seem like some sort of freak. So apparently, according to society, I'm a communist liberal with aspergers syndrome. But according to common sense and reason, I'm just me. I probably have a few defining characteristics of my labels, but I am myself. So, I will conclude my rant with a polite little 2 word message: f**k labels!
