Labelling someone a centrist is only rude if you consider being a centrist bad

Ask table how he feels about centrists.

labeling someone a centrist is always rude because everyone who’s not a centrist thinks being a centrist is bad and centrists think being an anythingist is bad

ah, but there is a difference between whether I am being rude to you and whether you give a fuck that I'm being rude. f'rinstance, that was an asshole thing to say, but you knew that and so wouldn't object to my pointing it out.

i enjoy the myth that only cloud-headed bourgie elites are leftist, it helps things chug along nicely

ilx is definitely not centrist compared to general population lol

i have met people w all kinds of political views but rarely of the broadsheet thinkpiece variety that are so common on ilx

plax (ico), Friday, 13 November 2020 19:27 (one year ago) link

tbf I do mostly hang out with the leftier ppl on ILX which probably distorts my ideation of its politics

imago, Friday, 13 November 2020 19:28 (one year ago) link

that said I've seen a lot of broadsheet thinkpieces that are miles to the right of what anyone on here would dare say or get away with. not that this means #allbroadsheetthinkpieces are media via small-c conservatism

I think Aimless is a liberal, in the context of general US political definitions, though in terms of ILX and global(?) politics -- centrist is close

there's a group of "specific users, such as imago" (not you, btw) who are doing their damndest to chase me off ilx for a couple of weeks now. I don't appreciate it.

Real question: whatever happened to Jaxon? I was gone for a few years so if there was drama I apologise. Met him once in SF, very briefly, never saw him again.

I mean tbf I missed some major events it seems, and I have questions about a lot of other people, but I always liked Jaxon tbh
