Why do that when you could just go to any other social media and watch it there?

There's always conflict on Twitter between multiple factions, I'm sure anyone could find some between these two.

its not the same. But I'm not going to do it since it would make people upset.

I mean, isn't that what r/anarchism is? I unsubbed that one sooo many years ago so I may be wrong, haha

I dunno, the closest thing I do to visiting political reddit threads are whenever someone here posts to cringe or tankiesgonnatank.

Were it not for the fact that indie game devs flock to these sites, I'd have no reason to go to reddit or discord.

That sounds like the exact opposite of what I come here for.

I kinda hate when that happens tbh. I like to be on the minority position in drama and I can't really defend any of the shit tankies say so I struggle to defend them for funzies. So its fun conflict that I can't really participate in. I say this knowing full well how many of the dog piles I've participated in.

yeah but sometimes it’s nice to have a place for yourself that isn’t full of shit

I think raddle is full of shit often, albeit more interesting shit.

I think you're assuming they'll attack each other first. I think they'll attack us first, drive the users off of the site and then maybe, maybe they'd fight each other. Sure, they couldn't take over admin and mod roles but if everyone decides not to use raddle because of them, they essentially would have it. That's kinda why we fight tankies when they come here.

considering how many people would be upset if I did that so I'll let it pass. shame but I don't want to cause people distress.

To take the topic seriously, I think at least in my limited experience with some anarcho capitalists, their development of post-right theory could actually be an interesting topic to learn more about, or at least something that fascinates me. So honestly I think that would be interesting.

As for tankies I pull a lot from Marxists so it's hard for me to be too negative despite the derogatory implications of the word.

I think a big issue with an caps as most anarchists view anarcho capitalism as a hegemonic philosophy rather than a group of people with diverse opinions like anarchism. There are quite a few an caps that I can get along with, but want to shake when talking about stuff like systemic social issues. Though many an caps I don't like at all. Though my anarchist views have a lot of overlap with anarcho capitalism so we have a lot in common so that helps a lot. Though, I've never found marxism captivating at all. Though there was a brief period where I tried to keep an open mind and tried prescribing to the viewpoint but really didn't like it or find it helpful.

What overlap do you find you have with anarcho-capitalists?

The only overlap I can think of for me is that the very occasional one is a well-meaning person that's just entrenched in capitalist realism and p u r e i d e o l o g y. But I'm not sure there's anything unique about anarcho-capitalists in that regard

Markets, Austrian economics, not liking the government, hating taxes, talking about how lib policies that "help" actually hurt people, frugality, investing to find projects, mutual aid and a lot more.

I'd say like a third of an caps I can get along with pretty well and the other two thirds I don't like much at all.
