@hamdancer a non-far-left person running a mastodon instance? What a miracle. By this point I'm used to being banned if I say anything even close to approaching not explicitly leftist ideas, and I AM a far-leftist.
Went for a leisurely walk in the woods earlier and was greeted by two dogs running full speed at me from the edge of the woods. Had to yell at one of them because it was snapping its jaws at me. The other one was so nice. Big white dog with an eye missing. Every time the aggressive dog started coming in close the white dog would get between us almost like he was protecting me. That sort of ruined my ability to relax. Who just lets their dogs run around unleashed in cold snowy weather?
This whole attitude of blocking people who disagree with you or those you find offensive is making the left into a pile of crying babies. How can a revolution be instated by a bunch of babies who can't take so much as an offensive word or two? Don't even ask how these people are supposed to engage in combat with such an attitude.
What I don't care to see is a bunch of people wrapped in emotional bubbles in which all dissenting opinions are silenced or blocked. That is ridiculous and it is childish. Anyone who wishes for a perfect little world where nothing bad happens and no one ever does/says anything offensive needs to come down into reality and breath some fresh air. That will NEVER happen. The more it is pushed for, the more edge lords see it as an opportunity to flex their "I'm different" muscles.
My ideal political world is one in which anyone can do or say anything that doesn't directly cause physical harm to anyone/personal property/the environment. People would have their necessities (food/water/shelter/medicine) as a right, and the rest they can get by renting (for free) shared things like cars, boats, and other fun/unneeded things. People can walk into a store and get up to 2000 calories worth of food for each person in their household.
Open discourse is freedom, group think is oppression.
Stop spamming my DMs please.
