I was banned from the Donald and conservative on reddit. And libertarian. Seems that conservatives love banning, as well.
This is true and has been going on for years, they don't see their own self imposed wall gardens. They want to be able to say what they want without any rebuttal, control speech. To me that always looked snowflake as fuck. But that said, I never thought legal free speech was in jeopardy with these online places doing that. I understood how and why it happened and it had nothing to do with the 1rst, just ironic that these were the people doing this. I didn't decide I was anti-gov't because they did this. I didn't feel the urge to break things because the did this. I didn't play around with overthrowing the gov't because of their walled gardens.
Nah they are having some upstairs issues. They feel they are so right in all of this and at best both sides have some points and some warts, but there still really is a lot of commonality, I really feel the core is an economical one that if many were doing better they'd be much more content to watch Office reruns on their new TV and furniture. But they won't step back. I'm convinced their world if we were so blessed to live it, it would be at best no better than what we have now, just a minor deviation. Just history repeating itself and then what are they going to do with things they find controversial but are really freedoms we have today? They are going to ban those and once again back to the irony, the freedom yellers really want more restrictions than what we currently have, just a different mix of which.
