For good-natured and mutually-respectful discussions of politics and current affairs. Soap-boxing and the promotion of extremist causes motivated by hate will not be tolerated by our moderators.
While I'm not a left winger but a centrist, I agree with you. The board appears to be flooded by right wingers who have nothing better to do than troll and discredit legit news as fake news. It's painful. See, I work for a living and have limited time, and have lost the appetite for back-and-forth exchanges with folks twisting and spinning the truth, folks who choose disinformation as currency, folks that are more interested in winning an argument transactionally, folks that think win-lose, instead of win-win.
The interactions on this board have devolved to factionalism instead of an exchange of ideas and evolution of paradigms through mutual understanding of each others' viewpoints. I sometimes wonder if some participants are being paid to be full-time trolls -- in order to subvert our confidence in truth and the democratic process itself...
Orwell and Huxley were both correct.
