Its lovely you guys want a hard shift to the left, but that kind of disconnect with reality is why its not happening. 

Great argument!

But they're not fighting for that better world, they're fighting everyone trying to actually get to that better world. They don't want compromise, they want purity. It's why they continue to preach that the best thing politically is for their version of the perfect leftist party, but it won't help win elections in Georgia. It won't help win elections in Pennsylvania. It won't help win elections in Florida. It won't help win elections in Texas. It only works in safe democratic seats.

I think its hilarious that you think incrementalism is fighting for a better world.

Also, you moderates need to go out and get your boy. Y'know since this is the kind of people y'all want to cater to and tell progressives to sit down and shut up. :yennefer: Hope y'all are ready to lose the runoffs and have a republican senate. but it won't be because of progressives. It's going to be because practical idealism from the moderates. :oops:

Just the fact the extreme lefties are attacking other lefties in this forum shows you the 'my way or the highway' attitude. We are the same side, we just think that a more inclusive tactic would lead to the greater good.

Exactly.

You dont get to have the whole pie, you get a slice of it. Equality does NOT mean you get to steamroll people. It is about compromise, being considerate and working together for the good of everyone.

Being an extreme lefty or an extreme righty just brushes people up the wrong way because you have tunnel vision and youre blind to the fact that you have to nurture the processes, you cannot bulldoze your way to the end goal.

As an aside, to think about something more pleasant, every time I see a post from you, that song “Shipwreck” you made and submitted to GGD7 goes through my head. That is a really nicely well done song and an enjoyable earworm. We had a really good turnout this year, with very consistent high quality.

both extreme sides end up turning viewpoints into a psuedo-religious dogma and want to punish the "sinners".

As an "extreme" leftist, I would have to say that we are not on the same side, number one. And number two, most people on here arent lefties. Most people that the extreme lefties argue with are actually centrists or center left/right. And thats the point. Progressives have to hammer the centrists first and the right wingers second. Fact is if lefties always align with the centrists for the sake of incrementalism, we will always only have incrementalism.
