30. No, it is just labels.
Labels are for boxes. The problem, as you point out, is that real human beings tend to not fit in boxes very well. I have a handful of views that some here might find conservative. Many of my views are progressive. I'm extremely liberal. And I hold a few leftist positions as well. Environmentally, I'm at the screaming left fringe, to the left of about 95% of DU.

So which box do I fit in?

In my experience, I'm pretty normal. It's pretty rare for a person to find a person who is so ideologically pure that they fall neatly into one box.

But that doesn't mean the boxes don't exist, or that they aren't labeled. It just means that the boxes aren't nearly as important as some would like to believe.
