Thanks! well explained.
Thank you. It is actually a bit more complex than I was able to lay out here. However, seeing as whole books have been written on the subject and I am limited to 4,000 characters, give or take, I am glad you found it helpful.
I agree with most of what you said. Sadly, people pick sides most often and become unreasonable.
But you said you're a pragmatist 😂

Free speech does not mean freedom from consequences.
Absolutely. But I never said as much. Is there something I said that made you think I didn't believe that?
You said businesses and universities should not ban speech. Yes, they can.
They can but should not be allowed to.
Yes they should be allowed to.
I'm not budging on this. This is one of those beliefs that I will die for. The idea some jagoff is gonna tell me what I can't and can't say because they believe im their wage slave is just another way to suppress workers rights to autonomy.
So you don’t support the business right to ban people? It’s their business and their right.
No I do not. The only reason a business should be allowed to exclude someone is if they are causing a massive disturbance that includes threats of violence, physically damaging property or harassing someone.
Then I don’t support a worker being racist in my business. And I would fire him.
And I think we are talking about two different things. I was talking about the workers not the customers. A business can not deny a gay person. Or a trans person. Or a white man. They cannot deny service to someone unless they are causing a glaring disturbance.
I disagree with everything you’ve said.
You have the right too. That's your freedom of opinion. And I would much rather a racist be employed than unemployed where he can simmer and grow angry at the world, feeling like a victim where he hurts people out of rage and further resentment. Keep your enemies close, my dear.
This site is right wing as fuck what are you talking about haha
@SirRexington This site is most definitely not right wing as fuck. It might just seem right wing compared to what you are used to and who you hang around with.I admit, it's more conservative than I'd expect at this site and age group. But compared to the population as a whole, it is left of center. Maybe you just don't know where the center is. I suspect you'd call the center conservative because it's to the right of yourself.
Dude. I live in the Bible belt. A red state and was raised by conservatives... Don't tell me I'm not "used" to something. The majority of people on here are conservative. That's a fact supported by this question alone.
@SirRexingtonCalling oneself conservative does not make someone right wing as fuck. The large majority of conservatives on here are pretty moderate., not right wingers.Bible belt conservatives are not in any way representative of conservatives. Nor are bible belt "Southern Democrats". The south has it's own brand of politics. So do some other parts of the country, but especially in the south. I live in a very conservative area (70-80% Republican voters) , but it's nothing at all like bible belt conservative.The thing is about this site, is that a lot of the liberalism is extreme. That's not the case for the large majority of conservatives here. There are some "core" conservatives, but not extreme. I can't think of ANY active members who are extreme conservatives. The only ones I've seen appear to be hit-and-run anon trolls, probably level 1. They are just trying to stir up trouble.
Dude. You're delusional. You criticize me for assuming someone who's conservative actually isn't or isn't radical yet you make the same claim towards liberals. His typical of a conservative
@SirRexington There is a big difference. It's FAR more easy to understand liberlism than to understand conservatism. There are a couple of major reasons for that. But I think this has gone on long enough and I'm done.
