Yeah it's odd, by the late 1980's most of the kids in my high school were pretty much tolerant across the board (unless a tranny/trap) had managed to pull one of us guys... anyway. After that, our attention turned towards current events again. It seems like all of 'this' is merely to avert our attention away from what our elected officials 'should' be doing, acting instead of reacting, and not playing the public against their competition/paid interests/party.
For every bad thing that hits the news, there's a politically funded group ready to take their fight to the public stage, and no one likes that better than the biggest players on the planet, who, let's face it, would like fewer, more compliant humans. You can't legislate morality or personalities, so what's all this imposed self-reflection, all about? What's it warming us up for....
Well, as i tried and failed to poke fun at in your last post i'll give a ground up summary a go, seeing as i find myself agreeing with you yet again.
Personaly i just cannot escape the impression that both the alt right and the new progressives suffer/subscribe to this form of diet tinfoil hat i.e the willingness to buy into some borderline magical thinking and conspiracy theorising is there but it's all not quite full flavour, classic cloud cuckoo land grade tinfoil yet. ( emphasis on yet, however amusing i might find suggesting it's close or the logical conclusion as is )
Whatever babies are there to be thrown out along with the bathwater, and i'm positive both camps must have some valid arguments to bring the table, they get chucked out the window a lot on account of what you mention concerning the means and methods that are apparently in vogue to dish out. Which indeed ironicaly goes against what both groups are vocal about claiming in regards to the free speech aspect.
Also i strongly agree that the way to advance any social agenda whatsoever has to come through dialogue but apparently that's one of the aforementioned babies frequently taking flying lessons at present.
It's the internet. You can't tell when someone's being sincere or joking. I hate the term "Poe" but it's hard to tell when someone is being one or not, so my apology.
