Yeah, so **Probabilitarian** could make a good moniker

2018-01-10 18:55:36 UTC  

maybe

2018-01-10 18:55:52 UTC  

alt lite is basically people like Lauren Southern that just simplify alt right ideas so they can sell it

2018-01-10 18:56:02 UTC  

It's from a survey of the most positive words, in sound and meaning

2018-01-10 18:56:11 UTC  

2016-ish

2018-01-10 18:56:21 UTC  

what is it supposed to be in reference to?

2018-01-10 18:56:51 UTC  

the memey movement that was before known as alt right

2018-01-10 18:57:12 UTC  

Oh shit

2018-01-10 18:57:15 UTC  

I just find it silly as well, I mean I am sure tim has an audience within the alt right.

2018-01-10 18:57:18 UTC  

I meant Possibilitarian

2018-01-10 18:57:36 UTC  

ere is the actual philosophy in Mr. Peale's own words: “I challenge you to become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities – always see them, for they are always there.” The root meaning of the word possible is “capable of making happen”

2018-01-10 18:57:37 UTC  

But thats just guilt by assosciation

2018-01-10 18:58:15 UTC  

it sounds more like just a rule of thumb than an ideology

2018-01-10 18:58:33 UTC  

The difference in meaning to progressives is that it is grounded moreso in being capable of making happen

2018-01-10 18:58:57 UTC  

Not "trying with insufficient knowledge and assumptions"

2018-01-10 18:59:23 UTC  

Yeah, it does seem more like a rule of thumb. I guess I just liked the word

2018-01-10 19:00:03 UTC  

Progressives seem to just want to change whatever moral structures they deem "outdated"

2018-01-10 19:00:37 UTC  

It's an escalation of liberalism, like communism is to socialism

2018-01-10 19:01:13 UTC  

Makes sense that they're the other end of conservatism

2018-01-10 19:01:26 UTC  

Or just like the puritians but more leftist

2018-01-10 19:01:37 UTC  

Degenerates?

2018-01-10 19:01:52 UTC  

That'd be the opposite, right?

2018-01-10 19:02:31 UTC  

Well tell me what your definition of liberalism is

2018-01-10 19:04:19 UTC  

Well forcing rules on others. Being moral busy bodies

2018-01-10 19:04:20 UTC  

I'd say liberalism is a generally positive demeanor to altering existing social constructs and laws to allow more people to feel more freedom in the way they live their life

2018-01-10 19:04:55 UTC  

That's authrotianism if your forcing rules on others, not liberalism

2018-01-10 19:05:12 UTC  

Through democracy?

2018-01-10 19:05:21 UTC  

Oh referencing the puritans

2018-01-10 19:05:36 UTC  

I wouldn't say progressivism is an escalation of liberalism as progressivism seems fine with barring previous freedoms in favor of their own definition of "progress"

2018-01-10 19:05:37 UTC  

Through democracy is the more complex bit

2018-01-10 19:05:41 UTC  

Like how we have them on both ends

2018-01-10 19:05:56 UTC  

if they think shutting down this one freedom to protect what they think the future will look like they will

2018-01-10 19:06:07 UTC  

Let's get some extreme polar opposites, for some ground

2018-01-10 19:06:13 UTC  

And for such superficial reasons.

2018-01-10 19:06:26 UTC  

it's generally because it makes them feel good lol

2018-01-10 19:06:35 UTC  

How is "oh, you might offend this group of people", any different from, "oh, you might offend the government?"

2018-01-10 19:06:47 UTC  

Being steadfast in retaining and preserving the social and political structure as it is

2018-01-10 19:06:54 UTC  

it's warped hypocritical liberalism. Not liberalism pushed to an extreme

2018-01-10 19:07:07 UTC  

Regardless of any possible improvements that may be introduced

2018-01-10 19:07:28 UTC  

OR
