Would you say The Pit is more left leaning (loonie lefties) or right leaning (literal Nazis)?

The loudest voices tend to support a liberal agenda where social issues are concerned but only a handful are outright socialists. We're pretty centrist I think.

It basically implies that we're in a bit of an echochamber. Not necessarily totally true but pretty true.

That's probably true, but I do all of my political discourse on this forum, and there are a few dissenting opinions. It's better than reddit where things just get downvoted to oblivion, at least here posts stand on their own merits, likes aside.

Just regarding the left-authoritarian vote and bearing in mind this (poll hasn't yet had many responses), would y'all who believe so say there's a strong (ugh) SJW presence on the forum? Or are you thinking proper Leninists?

I'll admit there was a time when I was pretty much in the former camp but I can't say I've seen too much of the dogmatism lately.

There are not a lot of "SJWs"

Even the more "SJW" people on the forum like Ali are not particularly extreme

people who use "SJW" unironically are even cringier than the people they complain about.

ja it's a painful term to read. But when I think "authoritarian left" that's what usually comes to mind (or at least those kinds of people), and that seems to be the general view, too. The other option are more, shall we say, specific ideologies like state socialism, Leninism etc etc. I'm curious what folks who feel that there is that presence on here think.

left authoritarians are people who don't like the free expression of ideas unless they are leftist imo, and if you don't agree with them then you are called stupid and what not and your opinion is considered very unlegit. Orwell was referring to left and right authoritarians when he used the now cringey term "groupthink"

I dunno about that, the main reason I don't come off as 'extreme' is because I deliberately avoid threads that'll turn me into a frothing left-wing lunatic.

Well, I guess the "right wingers" tend to stick out -- to me, anyway; I'd say it is center-left, and probably more explicitly libertarian -- but tbh I think a lot of the time "libertarian" views mask authoritarian assumptions about the way things should be, so who really knows?

I think anyone that thinks their entire spectrum of beliefs can be summarized by one or two terms shouldn't be allowed to vote or reproduce. You should be ashamed of yourself. But it's cool. Someone that thinks like this probably has nothing else going for them so these political rendezvous probably make you feel good about yourself. Inb4 people disagreeing with me. I don't care I already said it. Let it sink in. You are a sheep and now I can label you 1 of 4. Pathetic. To the max.
