    democracy doesn't mean "majority rules" and even if it did that still wouldn't make it a consensus because a consensus means a general agreement which is very simply often not present by any stretch of the imagination in a polarized two-party system. had trump gotten a few more % in the last...

    political power for whom exactly? who do mainstream dems actually represent? considering how little mainstream dems do to tackle systemic injustice, i don't think they give a whole lot of political power to the poor and marginalized people in society. sure, theyre better than the republicans...

    Abortion: The Thread

    i dont rly see what the moral difference is between successfully aborting a fetus immediately or having it be briefly alive outside the womb by accident and then letting it die, especially considering anti-abortionists already consider successful abortions to be infanticide. anyway cool that u...

    did u read ur source because it says clinton and trump were roughly perceived as equally moderate so it doesnt even say what u were initially saying. anyway the whole "moderates do better" line of argument is kinda stupid anyway, to my knowledge a lot of americans are pretty inconsistent where...

    was reading this judith butler interview and since we appear to be discussing the relevance of electability i think this passage is relevant: "Take the example of electability. If one takes the view that it is simply not realistic that a woman can be elected President, one speaks in a way that...

    oh im sure that kind of conspiratorial thinking will happen, but i doubt it's something that can be used as a political strategy to repress voter turnout since i'd assume the people who are susceptible to those theories are largely already on the right. i could be off-base, maybe "blue" america...

    what do u expect to see in terms of antisemitism? i definitely wouldnt pretend that america's support for israel has a whole lot to with its love for jewish people, but since it is often framed that way, anglos seem pretty sensitive to antisemitism. i feel like relying on antisemitic tropes...

    yeah it'd be a terrible idea to nominate one of the few candidates for whom actual enthusiasm exists, this is definitely how politics works this is a completely meaningless statement i agree with your first and second points, although wrt the first point i would argue who they exclude from...

    honestly i dont rly buy into the "trump's gonna end american democracy" thing many ppl on the left seem to believe. the thing with democracy is that it's a pretty good technique of power compared to overt authoritarianism, it's simply a lot easier to keep people under control if they believe you...

    NYT interviewed the candidates on foreign policy, might be worth looking at (if you get paywalled after a few clicks just open stuff in new private windows) im still in the process of reading all the answers but so far bernie largely does as well as you can reasonably expect of an american...
