Attention all! Did you know Saidit has a wiki? by HorseMeat in SaidIt

The /s/SaidIt/wiki/ is actually the best place to start seeking information. It links to thinks like the Terms, the Debate Pyramid, has a FAQ, apps, the master Wiki List, as well as User Wiki Pages and other wiki pages.

Today I created Glossary On SaidIt : /s/SaidIt/wiki/glossary

I wish I'd started it months ago. Maybe it's the librarian or the autist in me or whatever but I like organizing and making info accessible. I have a huge truther-political-spycraft-deepstate glossary and would hope most of those terms eventually make it in, but I have no plans to make that happen. This list, assuming people keep it up, would help define the character of SaidIt, if only from a certain angle.

Also, FYI, others have contributed too. I am not the only curator of the wiki. These are not my wikis. These are the wikis of the SaidIt community.

I could have complained about this or that missing, or I could start just making them to lead by example and start the ball rolling. The wikis are a wonderful potential resource, like evolving posts that don't slip away in time.

John Mark on the Unraveling of the America - thkelly67 Tim Kelly - [Our Interesting Times discusses the cultural, moral, social and economic problems that vex modern America and how the principles of Propertarianism can used by the Right to successfully combat the destructive forces of the Left.] by JasonCarswell in USAmerica

Meh. A little heavy with the race stuff. Tim didn't balance it as much as I should have thought he'd do. Not as much about Propertarianism as I'd hoped for.

A brilliant quote from Joe Shmoe may be brilliant but when the same quote comes from Einstein it's different. Or Monroe. Or Manson.

Context often matters.

Plato was gay and wrote about Socrates while the Symposium from another voice has different nuances.

Does it matter that part of Anne Frank's Diary was forged? Or who the real Shakespeare was? Or who wrote the Constitution?

It all depends. Sometimes it's moot. Sometimes it's fascinating. Sometimes it doesn't matter.

How can we get more people to join this site and more importantly make sure that it has good diversity of opinion? by Themagicalmidget in AskSaidIt

The Corporate Democrats and the Republican NeoCons are the engineered constructs pushed on everyone, both insane and artificially divided distractions from real issues with real left right folks whether you want to admit they exist or not.

These authentic left-right folks are progressives and alt-right - both terms that MSM tries to distort.

I don't buy most of it. But many people do. They are real people with real identity politics and tribes, manufactured or not.

By classic definitions I lean to the left more often than right but above all I lean towards voluntarism.

You labelled just as I did. There's nothing wrong with left-leaning or right leaning. Being in the cess pool or swamp is another story.

What part of that do you not understand?

Context matters, in quotes, memes, news, and philosophies.

I find it fascinating to consider religions and philosophies where the leader did or didn't author it.

ie. Socrates, Jesus, Buddha - all hearsay.
