As a daily user, it's way better, and all the reports of it's imminent demise are blatant wishcasting. I wonder if some of the positions expressed by these people would have still been called neo-nazi or supremacist 15 years ago. It has aged terribly. The same people who were campaigning for freedo...

Left anarchist. I try not to fixate on labels. Getting rid of government just to replace it with more capitalism is just privatizing oppression and calling it free association. Tolkien put it well: My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning abolition of...

Anarchy has the fundamental issue that self-governance reaches its limits relatively quickly, and a larger organisational structure would have to be put in place to handle issues between communes, and soon, you're back at having a state. And nation states are in fact not the worst ideas, I mean, th...

Kinds of speech will not ever completely go away. Instead de-platforming and banning it just pushes it underground.

People confuse freedom of speech with consequence-free speech. Yes they do. People underestimate the consequences of censorship. They too often think it be those other bad dangerous people that will be censored. That is often not how this works. People never consider that one day they will be consi...

I thought you said in my other thread that you kind of sympathized with anarchism? A true anarchist or libertarian wouldn't be for the state silencing a group of people you dislike.

Freedom of Speech is overrated. I'm in favor of silencing Trump and his supporters. As a very small minority who “think differently” Autistic people should be the last people in favor of censorship. It could be turned against us as in it is made illegal to advocate for the neurodiversity movement b...

Why do women want men? I wish I don’t want a man, they are trouble! Liars! Play mind games with you. What type men are you talking to exactly? You made reference age gaps, doctors in the recent past ect. I can't help but feel you're standards are very high so you're unknowingly picking catfishers a...

I'm not an anarchist, but I am considering learning about the different anarchist worldviews and I will say I lean toward agreeing with some of their principles. I am more focused on equality of opportunity as more important than equal outcome, I am sorry but Social Justice Warrior-ism only is inher...

I don't think other people's worldview can relate to me here. A majority of people on here are anti-right or anti-conservative socially and politically, they think anything like that is stupid, evil, or even dangerous. Even Religious Right folks would have issues with you. Especially your worry abo...

Why? People may be single for their whole life and never find someone to settle down with so they should remain a virgin even if they get an oppotunity not to be?


I agree here.

With all the current events and talk about WW3 among others like corruption, and that the current events seem to correspond with the details of the end times as described in the Christian bible, I am nervous about it. I am at 30 so I am not that old yet, so I am lucky if I at least see my 40th birth...

What would be your take if the US hypothetically abolished most other taxes and instituted one based on, say the sale price of buying anything that had a screen on it? This would be a regressive tax. In today's world, EVERYONE needs to have at least one device with a screen on it. What we need is t...

Not necessarily a bad thing. Good things come out of seemingly bad things. Let's see what will happen. Well, a nuclear war would still be the worst catastrophe in history, even if it doesn't cause total extinction of man. What I tend to err on and that I hope I'm right about, is that if/when it doe...
