hey if anybody's interested in trying out a new reddit alternative called tildes, lmk and i'll send you an invite. it's currently a small-ish community with a couple hundred active members, but the creator's goal is to curate a space with higher standards for quality content and respectful discussion. there's way more interesting stuff on there i've discovered because the feed isn't just memes and circlejerky posts. definitely a solid 8/10 for me.

“Nakate, an activist since 2018, was inspired by Thunberg to start her own climate movement in Uganda and began a solitary strike against inaction on the climate crisis in January 2019.

There has been criticism in the past for the way media coverage has focused on the climate activism of white protesters.“

being exposed to fascist ideas doesn't make people go "oh, look at how wrong this is." people aren't rational. advertising exploits people's emotions, and propaganda is political advertising.

fascism won out in the "marketplace of ideas." that was the lesson of liberalism. markets don't lead to good results, they lead to marketable results.

liberalism is a religion. all evidence demonstrates that their 18th-century faith in the "marketplace of ideas" (as well as the "marketplace" in general) was misplaced. the deadliest war in history was fought over this. but they keep the faith regardless, and get angry when you point out contradictory evidence, only reasserting their faith in liberalism's essential goodness when followed correctly

seriously though, nazis use the veneer of free speech as a vehicle to annihilate freedom of speech. If you give any shits about freedom of speech that should make you anti-nazi, it should not make you obliged to create safe spaces for them you quisling cuntsack
