Comment: Sometimes, I get the feeling

Sometimes, I get the feeling

Sometimes, I get the feeling that this community was set up or co-opted as an experiment in why a utopia of liberty would fail. This is not me criticizing you, this is me reflecting critically on my own values, the vast majority of which are common to the members of this community. Perhaps there is always controversy here precisely because folks come here at times to be controversial. Either way, it forces me to question my assumptions about a truly free society if a group of a few hundred people can't manage to exist in digital/virtual peace and harmony in spite of the fact that we have more core values in common with each other than we do with 99.999% of the global population.
I don't envy the people trying keep the "arc" afloat.

Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!
