I did wonder if you might have something to say on the subject of Trump JI as I distinctly recall you saying you had views on the US and Trump that probably wouldn’t go down too well in the board, for some reason. Though you didn’t elaborate and haven’t again and tbh I don’t have the time or will to second guess.
Regarding ‘otherness’, and the way ‘other points of view’ are received, well look, if I read a post from anyone and I believe it’s racist, has racist overtones, is xenophobic, or is generally bigoted and against social justice, etc, then I may well react to that and post a reply. I’m not going to start embracing otherness if the other is basically a right wing t*** or conspiracy theorist as I believe embracing that sort of other is bad for society. If the way I respond and the words I use offend people or people, like greylag for instance’, think I ‘reek of arrogance’ then so be it. I’m not actually harming anyone, though I would suggest what some people post could do, in an indirect way.
Besides, I feel you’re almost implying there is a determined ideology on here, and there isn’t. It’s a group of individuals posting views. It just so happens that there are some similarities with our views, though clearly differences.
