  • [ – ] Duvster reply Divide and conquer is the name of the game. Invent political parties then divide those political parties into different ideologies and you control the whole lot of them who participate in the debate when in fact there shouldn't even be a debate. We're pretty much all int he same side on most points. A people divided is a people easily controlled.
  • [ – ] wolfalexzemla reply This video is 99% wrong. The left wants to rape your children and eat your brain. And bring in islam to overthrow our gov. This is not about disagreement this is about sending our civilization to World War and to make humans savages again. The left is brainwashing students to believe they are creating a utopia while they are trying to bring down civilization and create an authoritarian dystopian police state. The truth is the only way to make a better world, the left builds their ideals on lies and fantasy. They need to re-examine what they represent before moving back into the political realm.
    • NerkNation parent reply I think the right and the left have fucked up in one way or another. I would wather stick to fact and science. I don't clam to know everything but no one is perfect.
    • [ – ] girlreadingbooks parent reply By focusing on the overlapping (highly powerful) radicalized policy shifters pulling levers behind the scenes, you undermine the legitimate discussions occurring between regular citizens. Chances are, if you're here, you are red pilled. Give more credit to this community @wolfalexzemla - we know of what you speak but you mistake the forest for the trees.
      • [ – ] wolfalexzemla parent reply I see the monsters hiding in the trees. stalin, hitler hillery obama. give more credit to people who dont want to see a world like they do
        • [ – ] wolfalexzemla parent reply and by the way i think the community here is awesome. we dont have to all think the exact same thing.
          • Joejoesgotflow parent reply Same, I like how Light hearted the Community here on Vidme is! Let's just hope it stays this way, or else I would leave the moment mainstream media would start Flooding in.
        • [ – ] wolfalexzemla parent reply Maybe i'll just wait for the thought police to show up at my door
          • wolfalexzemla parent reply I am not red pilled, I'm just outside plato's cave.
          • [ – ] girlreadingbooks parent reply Listen I hear you on this comment. I guess what I'm saying is we all know there are incredibly dark and evil forces at work pulling the levers. You missed the video's point that while there are some irreconcilable view points inevitably (like ya know, murder and pedophilia are wrong) there are plenty of avenues for discussion that would be opened, if only we were all more willing to listen. I totally support differing views, that's why I replied to yours! I'm totally anti-thought police vibes - that would be a terrifying Minority-Report reality!!! I guess I just want to put a bug in your ear that perhaps some who post are not quite as "shilly" as you might think they are :) And as for the monsters... man... I see them too. And it's terrifying.
            • [ – ] HobbesianM parent reply The Right has been compromising with the Left for more than two hundred years, and nothing good has come of it. During the French Revolution, the Right tried to compromise with the Left, and all that happened was that the monarchy, then most of the aristocracy, then huge swathes of the bourgeoisie were slaughtered in a crazed frenzy of hate. In the final stage of the revolution Graccus Babeuf and his Conspiracy of Equals were ready with advanced plans to create a Cambodia-like communist dictatorship when Napoleon swept in and took over, establishing a new Empire to replace the old Kingdom, thus (for a while) halting the leftward drift. Napoleon's French Empire, though right-wing by modern standards, was more left-wing than Louis XVI's Kingdom of France -- and this has been the way things have gone ever since: each successive regime is in general more left-wing than the last, with rare exceptions, even when the ruling party supposedly "right wing". Democracy, in the sense of equal uni...moreversal adult suffrage for all citizens, is a left-wing idea. It wasn't part of the American constitution, but arrived by stages. Each stage seemed like a reasonable compromise, but each stage was a step toward the Left's goal of everyone being denominated as strictly equal. Now, the Left is pushing for illegal immigrants (i.e., hostile and parasitic invaders) to vote - part of the Left's internationalist agenda, founded on the dogma that all protaletarians all over the world are exactly equal. Should the right compromise on that, too? Compulsory education, funded by the state and overseen by government bureaucrats, carefully regulated to produce the maximum semblance of "equality", was another series of compromises with the Left. What benefit did the right get out of it? What benefit did society get? We now have an extremely bloated education system, controled almost entirely by fanatical leftists. Standards have been dragged down to create a sense of equality, with detrimental effects of national competitiveness and productivity. Yes, the 20% or so who used not to learn to read now do learn to read, but they're still as dumb as bricks, so there's no real benefit there. Meanwhile, the moderately bright, in pursuit of certificates they think are necessary to occupation, stay out of the labor market for longer, and come out brainwashed, armed with economically useless degrees in left-wing ideology. Every compromise makes the Left stronger and the Right weaker, and none of the compromises can be justified by the Right in terms of long-term strategy. Yet, compromises keep being made. This is probably in part because, within the political system, the Right is represented mainly by complacent bourgeoises who care only about their income (whether from business or politics), and not at all about the bigger picture. Have the right always been quite so flexible? I suspect they have got much more so in recent generations, due to years of left-wing indoctrination in the state-controlled education system. The political class in general are shallow, blinkered people, but those members on the Left have a long-term goal (albeit one that is stupid, insane, evil and ultimately self-destructive), while those on the right apparently have none.
              • girlreadingbooks parent reply I so much appreciate (not sarcasm at all) the lack of comment character cap here on Vidme! You said a lot, so I'll focus on one point - education and the brainwashing of those who seemingly have not yet become indoctrinated drones. It's so true, and so sad. I know too many people in the sciences fields who do not realize, as MJ famously said, that the textbooks are lying to them! It's a big reason I quit law school, because even where there are not lies, the contextualization and historical analyses are SO BENT! For someone like me, a license to practice law makes sense with all of my passions, yet I don't find it worth it - AND THEREIN lies also a big problem! Anyway, thanks for the comment reply :) ><
            • wolfalexzemla parent reply Have you read Plato's Republic?
    • b12d2dhaepa parent reply Given that government spending is rising rapidly regardless of which party is in power, by what basis do you think socialism is on the decline?
  • BlackbirdFrost reply Hypocrisy started pretty early in this video. How can you expect to talk about reconciliation when you blatantly blame one side for the bulk of the conflict? Finger-pointing is the first thing that has to go, on BOTH ends of the spectrum.
  • [ – ] he_is_not_funny reply tell the left to quit lying. tell the left to quit instigating fights, ie real fist fights in the street, burning cars, riots, marches, antifa, feminism. we don't comprimise with terrorists. the left can fuck itself. i refuse to allow the USA to turn into a giant detroit or chicago. i am done with liberals. completely done. no more excuses. we are going to crush them at every turn now. they wanted a fight, here it comes. you're not gunna like the outcome.
    • [ – ] NerkNation parent reply You sound like your about to go out killing people... Not everyone on the left even know what they stand for... Same for the right.
      • Directionally_Challenged parent reply It's like this "Stare not into the abyss, lest the abyss stare back at you." They've stared too long into the opposite end and they have become what they hate. exactly like a lot of people on the other far end... they stared into the abyss, made their choice to believe the other side was satan and as such.. became monsters themselves. Thus, you have a lot of people in these comments not understanding the entire message of this video. To not become what you believe the other to be. To try and mend bridges and to try and come to a unity and understanding.
      • he_is_not_funny parent reply sure why not. lots of people deserve to die. would you hesitate to kill a terrorist? would you hesitate to kill someone who was hurting your family in a home invasion? would you hesitate if a person was directly threatening your life? muslims and liberals should die en masse
  • [ – ] Grumanilt reply there is no hope for the left, but kudos for the video anyway
    • [ – ] kcjonescentral parent reply i'm a socialist, and i'm willing to co-operate
      • Grumanilt parent reply it's remarkable, really, nonetheless you are not "the left", you are an individual. As you may be aware of, collective behaviour is completely different than individual one, and the chain reaction set by the left can't be stopped, they have chosen their own self destruction banding with you-know-who. Let them go, I am not a romantic and they won't be missed
  • [ – ] c_arnold03 reply Peace between the left and the right will never occur. You cannot understand leftism in terms of logic or reason. Leftism is a biologically programmed suite of urges. Leftists are fleshy robots, programmed to betray those around them to outsiders, as a means of competing. If they can’t send their warriors overseas to die, they will import the enemy to their homeland and try to start the fighting there. This betraying leftist strategy exists because evolution tested it, and it worked. The Chuck Schumers of the world did not survive by picking up swords and spears, and charging into battle with their nation’s warriors. They survived by getting their warriors into fights with outsiders, and then betraying them to those outsiders. Once those outsiders killed off all the warriors, then Chuck Schumers enjoyed all the benefits of being the only guys left in a nation of single females. I don’t know why it is so difficult to process that a species as complex as humans would have evolved...more a cheating competitive strategy of betrayal like so many other species have. Liberalism is that anti-competitive, cheating strategy.
    • [ – ] HobbesianM parent reply Sending warriors off to die isn't a specifically left-wing thing, though. It's a ruling class thing. Bureaucrats and politicians in general, regardless of ideology, gain a genetic advantage from such policies.
      • c_arnold03 parent reply I commented suspecting that Dave, and any other reader, has been exposed to, and understands, r/K selection theory, but you're clearly mistaking it for divide and conquer. Our civilizations political ideologies evolved from r/K Selection Theory in evolutionary ecology. In evolutionary ecology, r and K describe two fundamental psychologies seen in nature, in the political arena as left and right or liberal and conservative, designed to adapt an organism to either a glut or a shortage. To explain something like that in response would require more time than I believe you would spend to read in full here with how comments are formatted, therefore I leave the learning of r/K selection theory unto you.
  • [ – ] Dr-Despair reply I am nether left or right I am for what works and what is best for society. but we need to stop thinking of the left as buzzfeed feminists. This must stop I know plenty of liberals that hat those cunts
  • WeirdestNews reply Just passing by to promote my channel.......(coughs)....Go check it out.
  • madel_schmadel reply I'm just going to reshare what I posted on the EweTube version of this video since I'm lazy but want to interact with people on Vidme about this topic, too. This is what censorship by Big Social's blue armpit haired SJW employees is harming so much. By censoring one side and causing both sides to never interact, they are creating a climate where ideas aren't exchanged, challenged or given perspective, and where camps metastasize into complete militancy. I think SJWs and the left are doing this on purpose; they are, after all, conflict theorists - Marx (much like Jihadis and other Utopians) believed that Utopia only could come about through war and strife, not dialog. So that's the end game and also why as we all head to Vidme, we need to make the community something that the mainstream users out there will leave YouTube for rather than just a ghetto for the red-pilled.
  • [ – ] Pseudofire reply SO when someone is left or right wing what is the determining factor? What if they share 3 left and 5 right wing ideals ? Who has the right to uphold this divide? Has no one come along in over a couple thousand years with a political solution that allows people to choose ideals without having to war over the other? Pathetic
    • [ – ] madel_schmadel parent reply The political class benefits from creating false conflict and while they often claim to champion nuance, they only actually mean looking the other way while the political class lies. Since they have the biggest megaphone (dinosaur media, Big Social, and academia), they have defined the terms used and by controlling the language, control the game.
  • StolenMoment reply Very naive, obviously no life experience. The left always feels they have the moral high ground. Your own opinion is only the product of racism and greed. To the left a compromise is when they allow you to agree with them. Leftists are a tireless bunch and the pressure never abates. The Spanish Civil War of the 30's had the only possible outcome by annihilating the communists. The result was a stable state instead of chaos and corruption. A sad but inevitable situation.
  • wolfalexzemla reply To be correct this video would have to be dated 1972. You can compromise with the left while they send you to the gulags to have your heart harvested for a Rockefeller and your brain eaten by podesta. Or You can compromise with the left while your head is cut off or thrown off a building. Good luck with that. I will be the last one still opposing these evil ideologies if need be.
  • [ – ] LeonLaGrey reply Great Video, I agree with a lot. The whole political spectrum clash is way out of line dough the left has done a lot of damage. Even the right has its crazies as well. A game of divide and conquer won't do use good for the long run.
  • [ – ] Politics_N_Games reply You can't win an argument with an idiot. SJWs are brainwashed, so there's no getting through to them.
    • [ – ] RomWatt parent reply If you assume that everyone on the left is a SJW, you might be part of the problem as well.
      • [ – ] Politics_N_Games parent reply I'm left leaning, so I don't assume everyone on the left is an SJW. SJWs are brainwashed, and you cannot debate with someone who is brainwashed.
        • RomWatt parent reply My apologies, I just hate it when people are led to believe everyone on the left is a lunatic idiot. Scrolling through the tweets and comments of some right-wing nutjobs and other hard-core Trumpers didn't helped me either.
  • andmc reply It's funny, several years ago, i sat on the left side of the spectrum. nowadays that has changed. I was brought up in a working class family and labour was for the working class, but now days i don't think that is the case.
  • MutantPixel reply First of all, great video! You've laid out a very thought out argument. Now, on to my little blip. We should not divide ourselves by an invisible line in the invisible sand. Each will have their own way about things, as long as you don't hurt those around you and break the freedoms of others we should all be A O.K. But if we keep dividing... Well we're eventually going to break. Basically, if we keep discussion alive even if we disagree then we keep war and mass violence out of the equation.
  • b12d2dhaepa reply There is no compromise here. You just wanted to bash the left. Enjoy the decline.
  • b12d2dhaepa reply I completely understand feminism. I know of a right wing woman who voted for Trump. She has completely regretted it because she now feel more vulnerable because support groups for women are being defunded, and women need to be protected. They used to be protected by men and husbands but right wing men nowadays are all turning into PUAs and MGTOWs and either abusing women or completely ignoring them, so women have no choice but to seek help from the government, which means they must turn to the left and to feminism. The feminist government infrastructure, with its police, divorce lawyers, and even counsellors, can provide them with the care that no husband or man can. A right wing woman has no choice but to appease men. A left wing woman doesn't need to.
  • Staplez reply The only reason I like Alex Jones is because he's funny.
  • [ – ] JamesFuturist reply Reconciled. Never going to happen. We need to separate now before someone (the left) gets bulldozed into mass graves. You can't reconcile two cultural groups this diametrically opposed. The left basically wants mandatory interracial anal fisting bestiality lessons for 5 year old boys in state schools. Start advocating for Balkanization and secession now if you want to live. Because without a mutual divorce this ends in fire and blood.
  • gmontoya reply Ideas are worth debating.
  • bierhops reply I cannot and will not abide the left's desire to end the white race. Franchesca Ramsey and her ilk can die. Not physically necessarily, but politically they must be crushed.
  • LeviusCarson3rd reply I'm not sure what one side would obtain by complete annihilation of the other. As if that will instantly solve everyone's problem and the remaining people will think exactly like you with unrelenting agreeableness. You know we're all on the same desolate rock in space? TL;DR Politics should be about the betterment of people, society and humanity as a whole not (Not that I think it ever really was) "Who is right and who is wrong". Especially at this point where it is clear the world will not be a sustainable place if we continue with our current model of things. The quote "Stare in the abyss and the abyss will stare back at you" has never been so accurate to describe politics at this point.
  • Turn_Coat reply No justice, No peace, get these commies off our streets.
  • 420brian reply Feminists socialists and Muslims are all going to be killed in the upcoming civil war. I can hardly wait.
  • sequorrox reply The left has always been adept at understanding the form of an argument while the right has emphasized only the content. Think Rules for Radicals vs Atlas Shrugged. Given this, the left has dominated communication for 4 decades or more. The gatekeepers of media and entertainment and academia are overwhelmingly dominated by leftists. Only recently with the rise of the alt-right and the decentralization of control over narrative(thanks internet!) has the right solved the problem of the left's control over the form of communication. Now that the kekistanis are fighting fire with fire, engaging in the same use of social signalling(memes and mockery) rather than pure reasoning, I've seen more and more concern over solipsism. It was just fine when the leftist gatekeepers of communication were in control, but now that anyone can seek out their own confirmation bias, its a terrible terrible thing and omg beware of fake news, won't you think of the children reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! If anyone t...morehinks this is a problem for both the left and the right, one need only turn to a local newspaper or MSM tv. The left is the establishment narrative. They have the schools, they have hollywood, they have the media. If they are so worried about confirmation bias, they would have done something about it before alternative ideas started to beat them on the one space they don't control: the free speech zone known as the internet. They don't care about bias, they care that their bias isn't winning anymore. So fuck them. Conservatives can't go hide in right wing echo chambers; they are surrounded by an entire establishment biased against them. There is no echo chamber for the right, they are innundated by leftist bullshit everytime they step outside. It is the left that suffers from this circle jerk. Once the right has its arguments share center stage with the left in the MSM, in college lectures, in entertainment, then I'll accept the concern that the right is somehow in its own bubble. Right now, any concern of right wing isolation from the ideas of the left is absurd.
  • ShyArmy reply great vid.
  • Grizz01 reply How long can it go? Dude, have you not heard of China, North Korea, Muslims? They will go forever.
  • JustAnOpinion reply Wish it could happen! Probably wont though. #sad #fakenews
  • cth96190 reply Sorry Dave, but after a lifetime of having to deal with the insanity and retardation of the left, I am not interested in reconciling with any of them. Those on the left are either working deliberately and knowingly toward the extermination of the white races and the end of Western Civilisation, or they are so retarded that they cannot see the logical end point of their agenda. When I was much younger I tried to talk to those on the left. Now, I am more interested in a final solution. Seriously. The alternative is the extermination of my race and the end of Western Civilisation.
  • Thory reply Good vid. Someone needs to say these things.
  • Themistocles reply You can't reconcile with the left. They are out of their mind.
  • PriapisticMonk reply Best of wishes
  • Angel-Tibbs reply Many of us lefties did, in fact #Demexit. Only half of us were low info enough to stick with Clinton. FYI. And we need peace ourselves to be able to spread peace. Good job.
  • CitizenTruth reply AMEN, the world needs the American people to rise up and take back control of our country from a government that has gotten out of control
  • Multigk reply We need more of this in the world. I love this an I'm following, cause this is exactly the kind of stuff I try to share around! :)
  • Kuldebar reply Great video, but I fear things will have to get much worse before getting better. The "great men" of history have been replaced by bureaucracies and committees. On a person to person level, there's certainly always the ability to reconcile and work around differences -but there are layers upon layers of structures and bulwarks and obstacles of all kinds which will make such happy endings unlikely for the majority of people. The divisions are institutionalized, those institutions will have to be destroyed.
  • RayoGundead reply Any negotiation between good and evil, only stands to benefit evil.
  • Anti-ReptoidRadio reply The right is always right.
  • GeahkBurchill reply "I know what'll heal the divide! I'll be super self-righteous about the correctness of my positions, and my tribe while sneering at the childishness and self-certitude of my opponents who have been dumb enough not to come to the same conclusions I have!--I'm really sure that'll work or my name's not Super-Duper-Dave!"
  • [ – ] Radical_Waifuist reply I always thought that fight between Cenk and Alex was totally staged. Maybe not everyone was involved but I bet Cenk and Alex planned it at the very least.
  • [ – ] VonHelton reply Explain to me what I, a Cold War Vet, would want to discuss with a communist??
  • joem2600 reply The leftists always want comprise, its called incrementalism. Give an inch and they take a mile.
  • wolfalexzemla reply Correction this video is 100% wrong. Sure you can compromise now, but that right will be taken away from you when the police are replaced with drones and robots that show up at your house because you tweeted some off color politically right joke, or, facebook, finds the 69 chevy camaro in your garage (from photo) that you were supposed to turn in. The drones will first ask you to put on the hand cuffs and get into the driverless car or they will taze you/shoot you with a tranquilizing dart. I think its time to stop appeasing the left. before they build the totalitarian state they have always dreamed of.
  • MarekRebandel reply holy crap just found out about vidme and I'm already loving the community! great video!! :)
  • UnauthorizedExpression reply The Left is for sure fucked, but I'm for sure guilty of unsubing a person I really like because they express 1 view I dislike. I try very hard to be aware of this and try very hard not to react but instead think things over. I try to accept that no one is perfect.
  • wolfalexzemla reply The problem we now face is we have given too much technology like i phones to people with low IQ's. Lefty's are unable to handle this much technology, its like giving monkey's the technology of fire.
  • wolfalexzemla reply Compromise, You have got to be kidding me! That's like asking modern humans to breed with neanderthals again. The left being the neanderthals of course. I mean if you need to find the missing link, look no further than your local democratic party member.
  • wolfalexzemla reply Soon we will need a two state solution.
  • chrisoff reply Thats what the baby boomers did they never grew up or changed
  • iAmEnglishTV reply These guys have huge chips on their shoulders, they will never come to a consensus, that job is a whole-nother beast.
  • wolfalexzemla reply How can we compromise with the left if they cant process facts. Maybe we could genetic engineer some vaccine to give them rational or independent thinking. Oh wait a minute that's what they are doing to make kids lefty's.
  • JoYoshi reply Look I Dont Care About Politics Anymore Because In The Last Years I Only See Political Bullshit Anywhere In Internet.
  • ThomasSilvey reply I don't trust either the left nor the right... I am not dependent on a political party to dictate me at all... The left is just as bad as the right but the right is just as worse... They all need to compromise at the end of the day. What is going on in both idelogies is the fact that they don't care about people at all, they live off the money and power.
  • wolfalexzemla reply if you are a liberal in your 20's then you have no brain and if you are still a liberal in your 40's you have no brain. You don't get what you deserve, you get what you work for.
  • wolfalexzemla reply The left has gone off the deep end. We must crush the left. The societal issues have come from the left. They brain wash students in till mental illness. See personal dependency disorder.
  • Waces_Ferpit reply When people forget Sargon of Akkek is leftist :P
  • Xexor reply Very well put. This is something I have believed for a long time. Although I am a conservative, there has been a breakdown of both respect and decency on both sides of the aisle. Most videos I see accuse the other side of some type of heresy. Even if you cannot bring yourself to agree with others, you should really try to sympathize, rather than shouting within your own echo chamber. See the good in humans generally, and you'd be surprised how well we can accept our differences and get along.
  • vanners reply I'm not a fan of compromise, it usually means that no one gets what they want. I prefer communication, collaboration and ingenuity. This offers the possibility of coming up with a third solution that is better than either of the initial positions. For it to occur all perspectives are required.
  • _Royalty reply Follow me because I have a shout out Sunday series on my account so follow me to enter and gave followers.
  • OldChief81 reply Sounds like a good marriage?
  • trekline reply I agree with everything you say, except for one or two things. unsubbed!!!
  • blindfire reply I think the greatest hurdle to overcome at this point is identity politics. Identity politics means people are broken into groups based on un-alterable characteristics. When identity politics is gone people become grouped by their ideas; ideas can be negotiated, some common ground found, and if not compromise, an understanding of "agree to disagree" can be found. When identity politics is gone the guy who disagrees with you is a person with a different point of view, not evil or stupid person who supports a barbaric policy or heartless ideology.
  • RageFace reply Fantastic video Dave. Well done! Let's hope for future dialogue between our divided societies worldwide.
  • OffTheAirLive reply The duality reminds me of a joke about libertarianism being made up of democrats who hate paying taxes and republicans who like to smoke weed.
  • RoboLynx reply I'm on the right, always have been, and Sargon of Akkad is proof to me that the left is not beyond reason.
  • AnimeReviews reply I'm a Conservative and I can listen to liberals, as long as they're reasonable and nice to me, I can listen to them, but on social media, they're always whining! And it's annoying!
  • Pokermask reply I'm more to the left on most issues and can genuinely believe that some people on the right are full of shit (*cough* Alex Jones *cough*), but that doesn't mean that I'm not willing to listen to their own perspective. Who knows? I might actually learn more than I already know. If I disagree, I try to make my case in the most mature way possible and we can have a civilized conversation. I think that's something that we as people have forgotten to do, to listen and adapt from different viewpoints, which I think is really sad.
  • Kiruna reply not sure about other nations. usa, majority of people are neither left or right, they are in the middle. they are reconciled. is the outliers who are making the noise, and who for the most part are the folks consuming it.
  • doomguard1488 reply Uhhh... why exactly can it not continue? You know every empire eventually reaches a point of such political and social division that it must break up. It's only natural. Empires cannot last forever; people are different and need to lead different lives toward different destinies.
  • blazedu reply That's a very important lesson to every side to learn that unfortunately isn't anywhere visible in the media. Basically, be mature and don't think you know everything and that everything you know is right. We can learn from anyone everyday. That slogan in the pepsi ad, "join the conversation", it's more important that we may think. Let's hope there can be compromises in the highest positions.
  • RobertWM8 reply great video...
  • SonsOfArkham reply after watching political videos come check out some comedy videos on my channel like "Phone sex operator in public"
  • Rhyzir reply Great posting! I've shared the link.
  • RenBlogger reply Nope. The divisions forming in *SOCIETY* need this. *POLITICALLY* there can be no peace - at least not yet. Until the government either has full control or has been stripped of it, the political battle is nowhere near ready for this line of reasoning. Citizens need to remember that politics don't need to make them enemies in real life, but within US (and I'd say global) politics there is no common ground right now, and where there is, you can be sure capitalism, individual freedoms, and small government are getting flushed down the crapper. Nope. Sorry Dave, much like you declaring that skeptics have won the battle against social justice and feminism, this rally call is premature.
  • johnandrews reply Thanks for bothering.
  • AmandaFood reply I love this. Very well said.
  • spunkiest reply I honestly do believe that compromise is impossible as radicalism in BOTH parties increases. The radical left you perceive is a minority and the radical right you perceive is a minority. It is a fact that most individuals in America have a more moderate political and social identity, however this does not imply that compromise will happen. The tension present today is caused by both parties misrepresenting the public with wealthy politicians unable to empathize with the unemployed, the shrinking middle class and astronomical socioeconomic disparity between the upper class and the majority of the population, those who feel as thought their constitutional rights are being infringed upon, and children who attend an underfunded and dysfunctional school system that will not enable them to have a successful life. The left and the right are afraid to tread into moderate waters because it would result in them losing footing on the political stage as they get persecuted for adopting ideals of t...morehe 'enemy', resulting in an inadequate government that does not protect the interests of the population at large. Eventually this will lead to the collapse of one of the two major political parties and its subsequent replacement via a grassroots movement we have yet to see. I know this video is a bit old, but I just wanted to put my unbiased opinion (why I didn't talk about social issues) out there, based on the comments it looks like even the right viewer ship is guilty of labeling the left as crazy radical SJW's just as the left labels the right as racist bigots which doesn't allow for dialogue and should concern all of us.
  • CreedFilms reply You cannot have free speech with someone who does not believe in free speech.
