    Tiberius Thought is the economically center-right and progressive ideology of the blogger Darth Tiberius. He describes himself a Radcent.png radical centrist. He champions a RegCap.png guided market economy which always with a moderate, Paternalism.png paternalistic welfare state which promotes upward social mobility for working-class citizens.

    For his national security views (e.g., contempt for EdwardSnowden.png whistleblowers), obsession with Mach.png power politics, approval of Klep.png corruption and deception to further his aims, suppression of Racism.png divisive or Terrorist.png extremist speech (e.g., hate speech laws), and seeing Dem.png democratic republicanism as an Elites.png oligarchic yet positive force (Authdem.png "majoritarian authoritarianism"), Tiberius Thought can be found occupying a moderate position on the Authright.png Authoritarian Right quadrant. He is otherwise quite File:Civbert.png libertarian on cultural issues.


    Descartes.png Metaphysics Empiricism.png

    Tiberius Thought is a DualCom.png substance dualist, believing mental phenomena (the spiritual) and physical phenomena (the material) are distinct substances (components of the universe). All living things—or at the very least Humanismpix.png humans—thus have souls, whose main property is the capacity to think. His favorite argument for the existence of the soul is a simple thought experiment:

    Suppose there was a clone of a man named Jason: the perfect replica. Jason's brain is surgically transferred to this clone body. If this clone upon awakening exhibits traits in personality and identity at conflict with Jason's, is he truly Jason? Even if his clone flawlessly fit each and every single one of Jason's character traits, how can anyone, including the clone himself, be absolutely certain he is Jason?

    From this, Tiberius Thought concludes that something other than one's body (the brain specifically) best explains personal identity. His second favorite argument is a rehashing of Descartes.png Descarte's argument for the soul.

    1. I think, therefore I am.
    2. It is conceivable that I can think upon my body's total destruction.
    3. It is inconceivable, however, that I can think without existing.
    4. It is also inconceivable for a substance to be completely destroyed yet still exist.
    5. If I still exist upon my body's total destruction, the simplest explanation is I have a soul.
    6. Therefore, I am a soul, a substance, whose essential property is the ability to form thoughts.

    He also accepts, per Aristotle.png Aristotle, that physical substances exist independently of human thoughts, although his acceptance of spiritual substances puts him at odds with Materialism.png physicalists (metaphysical materialists). However, excluding interactions between the spiritual and physical realms, Tiberius Thought embraces Empiricism.png empiricism for measuring the latter (per David Hume the icon.png David Hume).

    Existentialism.png Values Krater.png

    For Tiberius Thought, life has no Nihil.png objective meaning. Even with the existence of souls and gods, claims as to the value of life itself and one's mental processes are all arbitrary and without merit. This applies to moral claims as well, for they are expressions of both Darwin.png haphazard biological impulses and Contrarianism-Icon.png personal preferences. For example, whether PolState.png police torture or Illeg.png robbing an elderly woman is "good or evil" has the same value as whether to choose chicken or steak at a restaurant (none). Since there exists no objective morals or purpose, Humanismpix.png humans must Existentialism.png form their own preferences; their own values, meaning to life, and structures to enforce them to avoid the Schopenhauer.png Will to Die. And if these preferences conflict on an interrelational plane, the one with the most Krater.png spiritual, physical, and intellectual strength shall triumph.

    3way.png Economic Model PlannedCap.png

    Tiberius Thoughts favors a PlannedCap.png state-guided Market-icon.png market economy. He wants the Statism.png government to utilize Corp.png big capital to benefit all stakeholders within the Cball-US.png country. For him, the profit motive is necessary to reward and spur individual iniatitive (a precondition for revolutionary socioeconomic change); but businesses should factor in the welfare of Community.png local communities, the happiess of SyndieSam.png workers, and the Nation.png national interest (whoever their decisions directly or indirectly impact). The goal according to Tiberius Thought is to balance solidarity with creative destruction. Corporations, with their economies of scale, profit-driven use of central planning, and Merit.png meritocratic structures are the best tool for this. To achieve this, he favors:

    • The use of public-private partnerships (P3s) to create high-paying manufacturing and infrastructure jobs.
    • The cartelization of industries critical to EconNat.png economic development, Necon.png national security, and Scientocracy Small.png scientific progress; to foster internal cooperation between firms while increasing export prices.
    • Policies to undermine Distributist.png small businesses—which are harmful to workers, make economic inequality worse, and deliver products of inferior quality—in favor of large businesses (e.g., a high minimum wage).
    • Introducing elements of WPD.png workplace democracy to corporate structures, so workers have a stronger say in company management (raising their standard of living) without negating shareholder-driven meritocracy.
    • Implementing a flexicurity model so that the benefits of LibSyndieSam.png union memberhsip are preserved but permitting at-will firing for greater labor market flexibility.
    • Using corporate welfare (e.g., subsidies) to keep essential commodities low for consumers without sacrificing profits.
    • Strenghtening intellectual property protections and boosting government funds for research and development to expand innovation.

    Because of this blend of Neoliberal-icon.png neoliberalism and Soccorp.png class collaboration, Tiberius Thought considers himself a 3way.png Third Wayer. His model, however, has been compared to Yellsoc.png yellow socialism, albeit his overall ideology is far more Prog-u.png progressive.

    Pro-Choice1.png Abortion Pro-ChoiceRemade.png

    Tiberius Thought is a strong supporter of Pro-ChoiceRemade.png abortion. He opposes all legal restrictions on the ability to seek an abortion, even limits on when a Mat.png mother can seek one. He also believes Antinatalism.png infanticide by the mother up to three years of age should be fully permissible, since a child does not develop meaningful sentience up to that point. Since a woman's body is her Property.png property, and a child in the womb serves a parasitic function when unwanted, she should have to right to remove it by any means necessary. Further, abortion has a Eugen.png eugenic effect in two ways:

    1. It keeps fertility rates among the poor low, reducing the cycle of poverty and thus its Psychopath.png anti-social consequences (e.g., higher crime rates).
    2. Primitivism-icon.png Mothers having autonomy in reproductive decisions has helped humans evolve into what they are today.

    Anat.png Esperanto Esperspread.png

    Tiberius Thought supports making Anat.png Esperanto the official language of the Cball-US.png United States.

    Gay.png LGBT Rights PinkCap.png

    Tiberius Thought advocates for the rights of non-heterosexual and gender non-conforming people. Gay.png Homosexuality serves a useful social function by promoting solidarity between members of the same sex and helping raise abandoned offspring. LGBT emancipation is also a logical conclusion of Cap.png capitalism, for Sex Positive.png sex is highly profitable—just ask Batistaism icon.png Fulgencio Batista[1]—and excluding workers for their trivial preferences is nonsensical. In addition, traditional gender norms limit the scope of human creativity; hindering economic growth. Supporting the rights of Trans.png transgender and Enby.png non-binary people, therefore, is a step in the right direction for Tiberius Thought.

    AntiGRights.png Gun Control Auth.png

    Gun control is an important position of Tiberius Thought. Although he normally accepts Indiv.png autonomy, he feels OchloAngry.png mob rule hinders individual autonomy, especially Property.png property rights, in the long-term. As the Hamilton.png Federalists identified centuries ago, unfettered access to firearms allows for the impulsive masses to interfere in the Dem.png democratic process.[2] There is also no meaningful liberty if one inhabits a war zone (for more guns equals more violent crime)[3][4]. Enemies of Tiberius Thought's values, such as Commie.png communists and Authcon.png bigoted conservatives, are also supportive of gun rights in the hopes they can overthrow Cap.png the system Statism.png to their benefit.

    PinkCap.png Prostitution Sex Positive.png

    Under Tiberius Thought, prostitution would be a legal, licensed profession. Ideally it would be confined to Statecap.png state-owned brothels where citizens would be free to relieve their erotic passions at will, although Regulationism.png well-regulated private brothels is something he would be fine with. In either case he would want the profits—almost entirely if managed by the public sector, highly taxed if handled by the private sector—to be directed towards Welf.png social investment schemes (e.g., education and infrastructure).

    NarcCap.png Drug Legalization NarcLib.png

    Tiberius Thought supports the total legalization of all drugs. For the following reasons:

    1. The War on Drugs is a waste of taxpayer dollars and government resources which could be devoted elsewhere.
    2. The War on Drugs is dysgenic, since it attempts to save drug addicts from themselves, allowing them pass on their genes.
    3. Drugs are a useful mechanism for pacifying the underclass, who are a source of revolutionary fervor historically.
    4. And fundamentally one's body is their Property.png property; people should be allowed to obliterate themselves.

    Nihil.png Pro-Euthanasia Health and Safetyf.png

    Tiberius Thought is a pro-euthanasia ideology. He feels those who are dissatisfied with life have the right to perish, and in the most humane manner possible. He opposes any efforts to legally restrict access to euthanasia. TrudeauLib.png Justin Trudeau and Macron.png Emmanuel Macron deserve credit for pushing euthanasia according to Tiberius Thought.

    Authdem.png Government SemiAuthPar.png

    Tiberius Thought supports a blend of Merit.png meritocracy and Authdem.png electocracy. He believes that the end-goal should be a SemiAuthPar.png dominant-party system, where a Synclib.png big-tent yet Prog-u.png progressive political party exercises dominance within a highly powerful Unitary.png central government. To the extent other Fed.png states would have autonomy would be determined by this hegemonic force, as it may be strategically advantageous to give certain political groups autonomy in exchange for being denied federal power. Opposition to this party would be highly suppressed (e.g., forced to only operate in certain small towns). While these officials would be democratically elected, they would deny citizens any meaningful say in government on the one hand, but would maintain their compliance by treating them as Corp.png shareholders of the country. With minimal oversight, the most powerful rulers of such a republic would be a Technocracy.png well-educated bureaucracy Noocracy.png appointed by merit, and they would administer day-to-day policies. Tiberius Thought's ideal system would be Dem.png democratic on the surface, but is highly Sec.png authoritarian in practice. Real life examples of what Tiberius Thought wants includes:

    • Cball-US.png The United States under Woodrow.png Woodrow Wilson and FDRismF.png FDR.
    • Cball-Singapore.png Singapore under the LKY.png People's Action Party.
    • Thailand.png Thailand under Thaksin.png Thaksin Shinawatra.
    • Cball-Japan.png Japan under the LDP(Japan).png Liberal Democratic Party.
    • Cball-Albania.png Albania under the Socdem.png Socialist Party.
    • Cball-Rwanda.png Rwanda under the Nazcapf.png Rwandan Patriotic Front.











    • Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism - By combining the best of Keynesian demand-side and Schumpeterian supply-side policies, you have established the most progressive economic system mankind's ever beheld!
    • Soclib.png Social Liberalism - You have the most realistic view of *Indiv.png individual autonomy; Karl Popper was mostly based.
    • Corp.png Corporatocracy - "What's good for the most successful corporations is, ultimately, good for all of us."
    • Soccap.png Social Capitalism - A moderate welfare state with incentives for mutual aid and philanthropy makes Neoliberal-icon.png him better.
    • 3way.png Third Way - Basically Soccap.png him, but with based economics. Tony Blair, Edi Rama, Emmanuel Macron, and Bill Clinton are great leaders.





    • BERNHEflash.gif BERNHE0504 - Probably the person I have most in common with in this community! Apart from some of your conservative social views, I don't have many complaints with you. You and me, along with 7588.png WMS, are the Axis of Evil in this community. I wouldn't have it any other way. We shall live rent-free in people's heads.
    • Omega1065.png Omegaism - Me, but more moderate.
    • Icon oRange.png oRange System Icon oRange Alt.png - Same as above; my main disagreements with him are on civic nationalism and foreign policy. He's also further left than me.
    • AryanMonarchBow.png Aryan Monarchism - I think explicit racism is bad politics in the 21st century. Diversity is also good economics. But you're probably one of the closest people to me ideologically besides BERNHE and Omega.
    • Vexism.png Vexism - Great friend, although we don't have much in common outside of a few philosophical similarities.
    • Yoda8soup.pngYoda8soup - One of the most wholesome members of this community, albeit more economically left-wing than me.
    • Xenoballsmall.png Xenosystemism - Chill object, though a bit more right-wing than me these days.
    • Neocalcicon.png Neo-Calculustism - Similar to Xenoballsmall.png him, so pretty based.
    • Stilluserricon.png Stilluserr's Thought - Embrace the profit motive and your ideology would be epic.
    • Brazlib.png Brazilian Liberalism - You're pretty cool.
    • MATTball.png Matteel - Embrace the 3way.png Third Way and you'll be based!


    • Pixil-frame-0(38).png Neo-Majapahitism - You may have some based economic takes, but your conservative values are awful. Also, you should be supportive of Imp.png American imperialism since it was the biggest supporter of Suharto.png Suharto.
    • NeoLukko.png Neo-Lukkoism - To the extent we see eye to eye you're pretty based; but to the extent we don't, your views are abhorrent.
    • O'Langism.png O'Langism - A blend of syndicalism and mutualism actually seems based, but your anti-statism ruins everything. As Hamiltonianism.png Hamilton predicted—and which history only confirmed—you need a powerful central government and markets for Prog.png human progress.
    • 7588.png WMS7588 thoughts - I get the feeling that if our ideal governments actually came about, they would immediately go to war with each other.
    • Guard-Occo.png National Fracturism - Some things about you are based, but other parts like your anti-Americanism are cringe. Though I confess to bias.
    • Panth.png Pantheonism - Guild socialism is cringe and so is pacifism, but otherwise you're not too bad.
    • Ioist.png Io - Same with Vexism.png her pretty much, although you're a pleasant person.
    • Neokira2.png Neo-Kiraism - A commie but with some decent cultural beliefs here and there.
    • NewMatthism3.1.png Matthism - Not bad, but not great either.
    • HelloThere314Icon.pngHelloThere314 - You're alright I suppose, although you'd be slightly better if you embraced Egocap.png Ego-Capitalism.
    • Glencoe.png Glencoe - Your views are tolerable.
    • Iconfloofel.png Floofel's Thought - A very wholesome person but we have nothing in common (except for agrarianism but for vastly different reasons).
    • Erissky.png Erissky - Meh. You seem nice and all, but I find anarchism foolish.
    • - Same as above pretty much.
    • Rock.png Rocksism - Too left-wing but otherwise okay.
