An option for Juche but not for libertarian socialism? :P

I've seen some people refer to anarchism as libertarian socialism. Or do you see it differently?

I guess there's definitely some overlap between left-communism, libertarian socialism, and anarchism. I'm not an expert but afaik the term can also refer to philosophies that accept the idea of a transitional state but in general prefer it to be less powerful or last for a shorter period of time than more (relatively) right-wing forms of Marxism might prefer, like council communism.

Like I said though, I'm not an expert so maybe someone more well read could correct me on that.

I am between a total participative democracy and a social-anarchy sistem the only thig that makes me declinate to the democracy is that I don't believe in human natural goodness, I believe that if someone is good or bad is relative of the moral the person pursue (or is conditioned by).

Does anybody here even consider Juche a leftist ideology? If anything, I consider North Korea more of a fascist dictatorship.

Well, Juche is a bit strange for me, it takes traditionalist approaches in some things and they are very nationalist... I mean, I can understand why you say that, but I wouldn't call NK 'fascist dictatorship'.

However, Shinmin Province is best Korea :P

Yes, most here consider Juche a leftist tendency. The reason for that? Juche indeed is a leftist tendency (and specifically an adaptation of Marxism-Leninism to Korea). 

DPRK is not a fucking fascist dictatorship, by any means. The bourgeois media can say whatever they want, but that will never change the truth, only create an ideological distortion of it.

I should explain myself. I think that North Korea in the way that it is currently run is more fascist than leftist. The hereditary dictatorship supported by a rubber stamp assembly, the absolute power of the leader and government, and the idea of Korean racial purity that permeates North Korea (and South Korea, to a lesser degree) make me very suspicious that the current North Korean government wants to lose any of that power by evolution into a communist society or that Kim Jong-un can be trusted to pull the government in that direction. Right now, I don't see Juche as serving any purpose other than as a justification for Kim Jong-un to retain control over the country.

Do all polls count multiple votes from the same member for the same option ("Other" has 4 votes, but only 3 are from distinct members)?

That's a bug. With legislative polls, the numbers are checked before a result is announced.
