    Sam Harris: Has extremism dominated modern politics?

    Sam Harris is a well known figure with strong opinions. To paraphrase Harris, that there is no moderate stance on issues that doesn't leave one open to attack. The extreme left seem to be confused on issues at the moment, with attempts to stifle discussion with identity politics, yet they appear to embracing one of the vilest dogmas encountered by the west, and if we drift to the edge of the right we meet some utterly disgusting individuals who value life based upon constructs of race and religion with 'God on their side', who live in a dualistic universe mired in superstition and emotion.

    Are moderates being 'bullied' into silence through the vociferous nature and intimidation of the extremists on both sides? Are those with genuine concerns and rational solutions on issues being silenced and sidelined in this wave of hysteria we are seeing in the last year or so?

    I'm interested in your thoughts on the subject. This is not about a single issue, but free speech and rational political discourse.
    Thanks from johnflesh

    No, Trump seems pretty moderate to me.

    He gave in to the democrats, they are the ones that refuse to budge on anything.

    So this is a one party problem.

    How many times did the republicans give in to Obama while he never gave in once to them.

    Ok, nothing to do with the topic. I just won a bet!

    Forget the parties, forget your rhetoric, forget your bromance. Think like you are a moderate trying to discuss an issue with noisy individuals venting hate before they've comprehended the discussion.

    No, it has nothing to do with the topic. Read it again and stop being such a partisan hack. Leave your bullshit at the door, ok?

    Again:

    Forget the parties, forget your rhetoric, forget your bromance. Think like you are a moderate trying to discuss an issue with noisy individuals venting hate before they've comprehended the discussion.

    Note, it's conceptual and that is why it is in this category: Political Ideologies

    Now, with your PhD you should be able to understand this with aplomb. But you fucked up straight out of the gate.

    I'm not, however you are notorious for doing it to mine.

    My first post was directly on topic and then you started flaming me.

    If you want to address my original response I will be happy to discuss it with you.

    Or you can keep bringing up fucking mermaids as is more your style.

    Would you like some of the quotes from responses you leave in my threads?

    YOU MISSED THE FUCKING POINT. Your first response was irrelevant. You do not grasp the concept for it is beyond your understanding. You are incapable of providing a cogent answer because you lack the IQ to comprehend the topic.

    This is for those who have some understanding of abstracts, not those limited to idiot conspiracy theories and mermaids.

    You are now on 'ignore' to get back on topic. If the light goes out the moth fucks off.

    Thank God, finally, now you will quit trolling me.

    Oh Happy Days Indeed!
