So would you consider a sterilization program put into place for those that want to opt out of paying taxes into social programs? I don't know how they could parse things out, but honestly I don't see why it would be a problem if you're still paying taxes for things you're able to take advantage of. Either that or receiving part of it back as a tax credit.

Yes we've all heard the argument. But that's not how people operate. I agree the entire society should pay for education, because we live here and want society to work. HOWEVER, those USING the services actively should at the very least not be paying far LESS than those who don't. If you want people to support social programs, they need to feel a chance to directly benefit from them...or at least not feel like their eyeballs are getting fucked out.

Those services indirectly benefit those who don't use them, because most people who go to school, for example, use that experience to find jobs.

Without kids, you have more money to spare, though. Tax credits don't usually make that up, but welfare might, and that's the bigger problem here.

Child tax credits enable people to take care of their kids — and will help to reverse our declining birth rate. The obvious problem is exploitation, because a lot of parents have, like, eight kids just because it helps them make more money (but this is usually for welfare, not tax credits).

Some people, quite a few in my area, have kids or adopt them just so they can get more money on the first, so they can go down-town and spend it on meth. But the obvious solution is to take their kids away, sterilize them, and ban them from adoption.

And this probably wouldn't be a problem is we didn't tax low-income households at all, and just used a UBI instead of welfare.

I'm left-wing economically and right-wing socially, which is why we disagree. I'm more of a Progressive-Conservative than a "true" Conservative.

Agreeeeeeed. Why should a family benefit more from services, yet pay less taxes at the same time?? No wonder the US public mostly hates new social benefits programs - the average income earner knows damn well that they'll never receive any benefit from it themselves.

Im a hard working center conservative (fiscally) who has none, never wanted any nor thinks people should get tax credits for having kids. Technically people with kids should be taxed more while I get to keep my money since Ill never need to use schools, programs, or services children need. Im sick of parents using these tax loopholes. Parents need to pay their fair share!

I think it's interesting to see how power-tripping mods are ruining Reddit.

For instance, I generally post in "local" subs, because they tend to be more balanced than the big subs like "news", "worldnews", "politics", etc.

I've learned to avoid saying anything Conservative, because that's the fastest way to get banned on Reddit. There's an obvious bias against conservative Redditors.

The subreddit for where I actually live is a complete bore. 90% of the posts are pictures of sunsets, and the other 10% of the posts are anti-Trump, and aren't even on-topic.

The other day, I called someone out on my local sub, because they were spamming dozens of local subs with the same anti-Trump meme. It had literally nothing to do with the city that I live in, they were just posting it on every local sub they could find.

I got banned for calling them out.

This seemed remarkably petty; the poster was clearly breaking Reddit rules, and I got banned for saying that?

So I went down the rabbit hole of seeing who the mods were, only to discover that it was one dude, with two sock puppet accounts, along with six other mods who haven't been active in years.

After realizing this, I suddenly realized why the sub was such a bore: there was one person on a power trip, banning everyone who wasn't interested in:

  • pictures of sunsets

  • and anti-Trump posts

One person had turned a sub for a city of a million people into an echo chamber.

This type of behavior is bad for Reddit itself, because Reddit dies when the place turns into one big echo chamber. It's boring.

On bubbles:

This is entirely the difference between the left and right. The left values cohesion of the masses, not progress or merit. The right values merit, not cohesion. Thus, the right willing engages in the battle of ideas to let the best rise, while the left censors anything that conflicts with their ideal vision.

Debate sites always start out dominated by the right, and usually end when enough leftists stop allowing debate in one form or another.

Now you have. It's NOT uncommon. If you knew anything about the left you'd know there's a HUGE rift in it too.

Just as the alt-right has been unfairly demonized and many of their stances have been twisted and spun into nonsense (ie. all Nazis, all racists, all supremacists, all sexists, etc) in an organize media psyop, so too the progressive left has been much maligned by being associated with the SJW/BLM corporate Dem bullshit. All the fake progressives in the Dems are posers who might say SOME of the things actual progressives believe in, but they never act.

Real progressives:

  • end corruption
  • end wars
  • universal healthcare
  • fix corporate scams
  • fix prisons
  • fair wages
  • good education
  • environment
  • green alternatives
  • end consumerism
  • etc

Many of these overlap with the alt-right, an-cap, and voluntarists. None of them are in the Overton window.

BLM, SJW, trans agenda, and the climate change scam are fake distraction issues. Sure some progressives may buy into these, maybe even all these distractions, but MANY do not. Those who call them out won't ever have MSM voices.

Just as they made "conspiracy theorist" and "truther" into pejorative terms, they are twisting "progressive" so much now that many who say they haven't changed but the definition has, are at a loss for a clear label for what they stand for. Even just this past week Kim Iversen went on yet another big rant about it. I don't recall if it was one I posted or if I was too busy and just listened.

when i was praying with muslims, i learned many things about their ways of doing things. #1, they see themselves as being much superior to all nonmuslims. #2, see #1

when muslims control an area, the following options will be given to nonmuslims:

1) convert willingly and go to prayers.

2) pay a tax and shut up.

3) be executed.

i was told directly by men with tablighi jamaat that when islam controls an area that no muslim will ever be charged or convicted for killing a nonmuslim.

an example of how muslims will treat others can be seen in the maldives. i have been told by multiple sailors(boating) that if you should sail to the maldives and you are found to have a tattoo of a christian cross that if you are lucky they will only carve it off with a knife.

sharia is coming soon to the united states.. it is my opinion that the reason for the push to defund and destabilize our police forces is so that islam can rollout sharia law.

Reddit is NOT progressive.

Reddit is SJW/BLM corporate Dems (GOP in Dems clothing). VERY different.

As different as GOP and AltRight. Or GOP and AnCap.

How about anti-war people? How about the environmentalists? They call them eco-terrorists now and get worse sentences than real terrorists and the CIA terrorists. Now the corporate Left™ is worried about Climate Change™, a fictional excuse to distract from real conservation and for their Carbon Tax™ scam. Black Lives Matter™ but health care doesn't. They knocked the progressives down first, and have since embedded a bunch of posers that talk but don't act.

Wait, "you"? I stopped supporting Trump after the combination of him rubbing Ivanka to orgasm - on stage - election night in 2016, then the next day proclaiming: "Hillary is a good person, and my good friend. The Clintons are good people..." Then something about no one being arrested or jailed. Paraphrasing, because I haven't watched that in years. So he cheated me the day after winning. "You'd be in jail" was how he got my vote.

To be fair, I don't know if Ivanka actually had an orgasm. His rubbing and her body posture, along with the expression on her face just made it look like she did. Was a real wtf moment, but everyone pretends it didn't happen.

Then that Q account came along, and what did they do? All those retarded "proofs" eventually did tie the psyop directly to Trump... Okay, so that's bullshit too.

My half baked theory is that they selected and installed him to be the chaos president. He succeeded in wrecking America, and totally corrupting the conservative side of the cabal op known as the republican party. They got tricked into abandoning conservative morals, and becoming retarded Trumpsters. His parting shot at them, aside from the spit in their faces pardons, was to go along with the most blatant election fraud ever - making his followers look even more stupid.

I did get my threads crossed. My apologies.

To answer your question, are bubbles bad? I don't know. I know the left has determined that no dissidence is permissible in any forum whatsoever. This has been going on for as long as I've been following politics and here we are. If bubbles are bad, they're not bad for the left. Establishing a firm boundary for allowable sentiment and constant policing of inhabitants of the bubble for goodthink seems to have been an efficient route to power for the left. The left don't seem to mind inhabiting an "echo chamber". Seemingly as a consequence, they're capable of unified progression from discussion to collective action on behalf of shared goals.

So maybe bubbles aren't bad. Maybe the idea that "echo chambers are bad" is one of these entryist control narratives non-leftists have been inculcated with so they remain disorganized and without power.

But my question was why a progressive would leave the comfy hum of their hive at reddit to post here. What is their reason?

As far as the other thing goes, the incoming Secretary of Health is a visibly mentally ill man who publicly cross-dresses. I'm not going to weigh that against an anonymous message board character in pursuit of a "bothsides" cope.

I'm guessing you don't even know what a real Progressive is.

Fake Progressives with the Dems don't count.

Authentic Progressives have been censored too.

There's much to be admired in ideas from Progressives, AnSocs, AnCaps, and AltRight.

SJWs, Dems, and GOP have nothing to offer.

I've only been at saidit for 10-20 days and during that time, after reading countless posts and comments I've since realized that your are the herpes here.

Think about that. Your username has come up enough and under such ugly circumstances so often that I think of you as a herpes pustule.

You're thinking of someone else, I can't imagine panicking from political bullshit. I'm not left or right, I don't like either of them. Politics is like professional football. You can watch, but you don't get to play.

The pedo was alt right back at you. (is that code for something or something?

It's not code, there was just a dude talking about having sex with children that got banned. He wasn't a liberal. And my point, besides seeming news worthy locally to saiditers, was that no one side has the monopoly on degeneracy.

I get where you're coming from with that, but just being honest, the right and particularly Trump supporters were all suckers. Trump took such a huge dump on all his followers on the way out, condemning them and not even considering pardons for people who did what he asked. I don't know how you don't all feel totally betrayed.

And yeah, 99% of the shit they fed you was fake and for their own purposes. Suckers.

Why are there progressives on here? Is it to have their lukewarm takes swim in a smaller pond? Or do they believe they're monitoring a terrorist website? I just don't get what use they'd have for an alt social media site. Reddit should be fine for them.

True. The left is almost as egregious in pursuing their safe space.

Someone just said it earlier today, and I forget who, but he said we need to stop idolizing politicians, right or left. Especially with Trump gone, I think things may normalize. Trump was interesting, people watched him for the drama. We're back to boring old politics now. Lot of people going to stop paying attention.

And the exact opposite on facebook, twitter and reddit. The rabid leftists can't imagine a world where someone would vote for Trump. There are 2 Americas with 2 different realities, and honestly I don't see how both sides can't readily agree to peacefully split the country in 2.

I posted a picture of Melania Trump on a sub like hot babes or something like that. This is like 3 years ago as I completely closed my reddit account as it became so cancerous so quickly. Anyway, they banned me because I was a Trump supporter. I'm like this is a sub for scantily clothed women - it has nothing to do with politics and just because I think Melania is hot that doesn't mean I even like Trump (though I did and do). TDS big time.

we are isolating ourselves and cutting ourselves out of the mainstream conversation

It's why I suspect so many conservatives, and Trump himself, think the election was fraudulent. In their isolated spaces Trump was adored. It was inconceivable he could lose if you ignored the mainstream conversation.

have you every used an app called "azar"? it is on the android playstore. it is really pretty cool.. you video chat with random people from around the world.. one after another.. if i get tired of chatting someone, i just swipe the screen and i get to chat another random person.. i made a friend from taiwan on it, and he is the nicest chinese man.. so kind..

i think that it would be nice if something like azar were setup inside of a saidit type of forum where you could have a group conversation where people took turns speaking.

as things are now, i have no fkng clue who the hell i am talking with on this forum.. and also as things are now, we have something of an information overload.. ten gozillion videos and posts that are posted by damm who know who they are or what their agenda is..

it would be a bit like a twelve step meeting, where people take turns talking..

from the perspective of the management of saidit, the bandwidth would be a bit pricey.. but i dont think it would be that terribly difficult to write the code, it would require some html5..

i think that there are plenty of coding examples of group video chats available using html5.
