What are you looking for?

Be the change you want in this world if it doesn't exist already.

Opinions aren't censored here although many with try to shame you with the "pyramid of debate". Other than that it's pretty chill other than far right/far left rhetoric that gets parroted and circle jerked. Just remember you can mute subs that don't interest you or w.e, makes it a lot better experience.

Interesting points.

Yeah the extremists are here but I think it's OK in a free speech kind of way. The trick is not to let them take over.

I'm curious how the pyramid of debate could shame someone. It seems to me more like a guideline to keep discussion good.

Is deserved shaming a good or a bad thing ?

Shame is never a good thing. It's a tool to control and so some who live in fear find it a precious tool with which to gaslight and box in others.

No one who lives with shame lives a free life.

I just got here myself. I got to where I dreaded going to reddit but it was the only "social" online place I knew. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but so far people seem to communicate way more eloquently here, so to speak. I'm really liking the first impression.

I know! Two days later . . . .just got back here - I actually hang out on ruqqus more, but saidit seems to be good as well. I just wanted somewhere to be funny and get info without tip-toeing around politics/race.
