We don't like rules. Shocking, I know.
But we need one, so here's the one rule:
“That which you hate, do not do to your neighbor."
Aka "The Golden Rule," "Play Nice," "DBAD," and "Be excellent to one another!" If you have trouble with this, no length of rules will have any greater effect.
(Graffiti and sharp objects are removed at the discretion of whichever mod or user is trying to help you understand our one rule.)
Guidelines, requests, and suggestions:
Agreement is not a goal; Civil engagement is.
Unity is not a goal; Tolerance of others is.
Conformity is not a goal; Enlightened debate is.
Many of us are newly awakened and angry at what we see. Hopefully this is a place to channel that anger, to vent those frustrations, to laugh at the absurdities and cry at the inhumanity, and in the process find ways to expose those in positions of authority who have long since forgotten who they serve, and replace them with those who do.
And THAT is the Way of the Bern.
