How would you label yourself?

Ethical socialism is a form of liberal socialism. Ethical socialism is distinct in its focus on criticism of the ethics of capitalism, and not merely criticism of material issues of capitalism. It emphasizes the need for a morally conscious economy based upon the principles of service, cooperation, and social justice while opposing possessive individualism. The term "ethical socialism" initially originated as a pejorative by revolutionary Marxist Rosa Luxemburg against reformist revisionist Marxist Eduard Bernstein and his supporters, who evoked Kantian liberal ideals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvJ8YDma7Wk

Would you be willing to take part in activism to help facilitate positive changes?

To revolt is a natural tendency of life. Even a worm turns against the foot that crushes it. In general, the vitality and relative dignity of an animal can be measured by the intensity of its instinct to revolt. Mikhail Bakunin
