Let's just assume we would actually succeed in our rational attempts to overcome human nature, that would mean that we defeated and voluntarily gave up our souls, whatever it is that makes us human. Last century was absolutely enough of that, thank you.

If you accept one kind of extremism but not another, you're an extremist and probably an immoral person.

If you accept any kind of extramism, then you're the worst of the worst. Your only moral is "The ends justify the means"

If you support free market capitalism, then maybe, just maybe, we can have a conversation about what kind of culture we want to have and how we can foster wealth mobility.

All you SJWs are just societal laminar flow zealots, scared of turbulences, whatever form they take.

Come on internet, do something funny.

Sounds a bit like "Come on, news cycle, get more ridiculous"... but I ain't gonna risk that in 2020.

If I didn't say it before, i'll say it now: Parler is not the solution to censorship from platforms, it is decentralization. More people need to spin up instances on the fediverse with recognizable names behind them so people have places they can flock to, but still talk to everyone else. Everyone major should have their own instance and then they can moderate how they like and have their userbase, but also be able to talk with people outside of their circle.
