X : You are intolerant of other views.
Me : You mean I disagree with you? I do however find my tolerance of views promoting fascism, communism or neoliberalism to be very low. I struggle with those three mostly because of the deaths and misery caused.
... I don't like views which incorporate exclusion, suffering and often violence within them. I find them troubling.
Of the three, despite the history and practice, I find at least that communism has "good" intentions of creating a more balanced society. But as with most things, when it comes to practice then the path to evil is often paved with "good" intentions.
Wheras neoliberalism and the worship of the market is based upon exclusion (you cannot have a market without it). The violence tends to be insidious ... poverty, gross inequality, exploitation and short termism.
My natural inclination is towards a mixed economic model (i.e. more China) combined with strong democratic principles (i.e. more Norway) and human rights (i.e. more UK).
