Wrt to the study what it termed as SJW viewpoints was rather generous, but ultimately acceptance of trans, Muslim, black, female execs etc has gone up despite views that there is a push back by the right in the culture warsThis is what I find so depressing about the current political/social division and pigeon holing of people.
I know a lot of Jamie's views, and a fucking ton of them mirror mine. The differences in key issues between you, me, @JamieC and @Haggis are very few. I am almost certain that if the 4 of us were sat in a room and asked to give our views on gay rights, abortion, drug laws, equal opportunities in employment, racism, fair taxation, universal healthcare, military operations etc...
There would be variations and disagreements that seemed minor. There would be no clash of severely different worldviews. But it descends into simple pejoratives being attached and people dismissing other people entirely based off a knee jerk reading of one stance.
@Broxi is wrong if he thinks I stay in a bubble, one of my best mates is a right wing conservative, loads of my mates have different views, but none of my mates will ever be a Nazi, as you say if we all met we'd all have a laugh and there would be little material difference, there just seems to be a pile on on me for reminding people of 'Never Again'. It's crazy that in this decade especially there seems to be some drive to accept far right views as legitimate, whilst celebrating the fact they were violently dunked on in 1945 and other events like Cable Street, It's cognitive dissonance. Far right ideology will never do any good, That's been well established, it doesn't even pretend to trend towards utopia, why give it any air? There's also some weird thing going on where the far left and far right are equated whereas as one argues for absolute direct democracy and equality and the other argues in favour of supremacy. They are not equitable.
@Haggis if you think I think you're a Nazi you're crazy. You can absolutely stand for secularity, as long as that doesn't infringe on individuals freedoms to worship how they want or discriminate against said individuals then fine, nobody is negatively affected by that.
