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

    How about you, man? You keep disappearing for months at a time

    I hope grad school's treating you alright.

    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 compliment...you 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

    Haha! Exactly!!!

    If you ask a member what their ultimate goal or purpose is...they really don't have anything. Especially when I mention that I have to pay, as any student, for the student government ski-trip. For real? I hate am not fond you people. :p

    ooh shiiet

    yeah student gov is a piece of ♥♥♥♥. all people learn to do is the tips and tricks to game democracy when they've actually gotten somewhere in life. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ like leaving promotional material in voting booths, gross misrepresentation of facts, divisive politics, empty promises and pork barrel lobbying, it's disgusting.

    our washrooms need to be more inclusive

    yeah no shut the ♥♥♥♥ up.
