    Don't worry about it man. I'm a little shocked at the bias of some of the people in that thread. Just so much co-option and marginalization of Sanders message.

    It's going great. I'm a professional tire kicker, break taker, and poop ... pooper now.

    I need a break from that thread, I might be getting a little worked up if I keep going!

    How's it going

    Disappeared again, I'm the worst!

    I'm still in course work, have about a year left until I start the dissertation process. Are you taking classes this Fall?

    Are you doing your PhD now? And how far down the thesis are you?

    Yeah, I'm alright. I haven't been on lately for reasons, but my final exam will be tomorrow and I hope I can relax by then.

    Generally, I think liberal-conservative binary is SOOO flawed in the US, and restricts free thinking. Free thinking needed in establishing synthesis from competing viewpoints. Another reason why I am not for simple heuristics being used as tactics in recruiting one group or the other group in our two-party winner-take-all political system.

    I really like this model, it makes the individual think more critically about their ideology and aspects they overlook. Honestly, I waver among a few of these sections. This allows for some intersectionality, you can be a centrist in some respects or a radical in other respects at the same point of the map.

    I should make a thread so I can pit the libs and cons of PC against their own kind. *evil laugh*

    Haha, I don't mean to make you feel comfortable.

    On the issue of pragmatism though, I've always felt that you were the most pragmatic out of all us posters on D&D. Your arguments inspire me to take my conservative side more seriously and look more critically at my liberal biases. You honestly make sense out of conservatism and that is something that is just so lacking in D&D, especially nowadays.

    I guess I should reciprocate the compliments? Okay, here it goes..."you are a great complimenter!"

    But really, hmm, a genuine are a great intellectual ally and have a keen eye on realistic/pragmatic approaches and perspectives. Unlike myself, whom, like many others, can be a bit on the radical idealist persuasion. (See I even added self-deprecation to my compliment so that totally makes it even more valid.)

    ehehehe i gave some examples of what should be done in a rational discussion but didn't explain as fully as you did why relying on social media is a bad idea

    i didn't address dog-whistle messages, information overload, as well as the information anarchy that is social media

    also i could've called out the claim that social media is unbiased in stronger terms because it was so nakedly unsupported.

    all of which you did, and for that applaud you
