Fundamentalist would be the standing word

2018-01-10 19:23:05 UTC  

Also why I don't like the "left/right" divide. Makes it way too easy to discredit someone elses ideas simply because they use a word they identify with.

2018-01-10 19:23:24 UTC  

There's also a different meaning here in Europe

2018-01-10 19:23:29 UTC  


2018-01-10 19:23:36 UTC  

Yeah, like being on the right or left is supposed to be an inherently bad thing? It makes no sense. lol

2018-01-10 19:23:47 UTC  

From what I've heard other American pallerinos

2018-01-10 19:23:48 UTC  

I heard my mom say something like "isn't he a republican though?" or some shit like that. Like why does it matter which letter he has next to his name if he has good ideas.

2018-01-10 19:24:08 UTC  

The two party system was a dumb idea to reinforce, mang

2018-01-10 19:24:36 UTC  

Right - more control to private sector

2018-01-10 19:24:52 UTC  

Left - more control to governments

2018-01-10 19:25:00 UTC  

In theory.

2018-01-10 19:25:15 UTC  

In practice, they're both bought out by busniesses and monied interests, so it's moot.

2018-01-10 19:25:19 UTC  

While the left around the Iraq war was completely against the government. These ideas shift

2018-01-10 19:25:25 UTC  

That's the horseshoe theory

2018-01-10 19:25:33 UTC  

They end up in the same place

2018-01-10 19:25:39 UTC  

it's like if the horseshoe was made of mercury

2018-01-10 19:25:41 UTC  

You need a constant flux

2018-01-10 19:25:51 UTC  

You can't stay in the middle

2018-01-10 19:25:53 UTC  

I thought the horseshoe theory was that the extremes of the right and left, in terms of ideology, is that they end up in the same place?

2018-01-10 19:26:03 UTC  

Well, yeah

2018-01-10 19:26:05 UTC  

Their extremes

2018-01-10 19:26:08 UTC  

I was talking purely about money in politics.

2018-01-10 19:26:08 UTC  

it's that they're fundamentally the same

2018-01-10 19:26:29 UTC  

It's all nepotism

2018-01-10 19:26:40 UTC  

Because of our lame social nature

2018-01-10 19:26:44 UTC  

perceive it as you will

2018-01-10 19:26:59 UTC  

There's a difference, though

2018-01-10 19:27:23 UTC  

One comes from the production of goods/services

2018-01-10 19:27:48 UTC  

The other comes from the escalation of power of those manufacturers

2018-01-10 19:27:48 UTC  

I think arguing definitions is a good way to miss the point though

2018-01-10 19:28:25 UTC  

It's all cyclical, because products and ideas go obsolete

2018-01-10 19:29:07 UTC  

Yeah, good point. It's a superficial issue at best

2018-01-10 19:31:07 UTC  

Just avoid using the established and dusty/stagnant political monikers and explain your fundamental issues like you would to a four year old

2018-01-10 19:31:20 UTC  

Minus the somewhat denigrating tone of voice

2018-01-10 19:31:34 UTC  

People don't seem to appreciate that

2018-01-10 19:31:47 UTC  

yeah pretty much lol. Just saying "oh I'm a libertarian" leaves a lot of room for interpretation. Just say what you believe in pertaining to the relevant issue

2018-01-10 19:32:22 UTC  

Remember Trump's run in the 2000s?

2018-01-10 19:33:34 UTC  


2018-01-10 19:34:25 UTC  

He withdrew from the race

2018-01-10 19:34:41 UTC  

Because of infighting of his party "The Reform Party"
