This will just be a short and sweet thread
So, I've about seen and heard enough of the rubbish in terms of discrimination of political ideologies that are presently running biasly rampant on
You may be thinking right now "why should it matter which political party one chooses to affiliate themselves and how does this have any affect on you
or anyone else? If you're offended, so what, nobody cares. If you don't like it then ignore it."
Yes, we all have the right to choose which political ideology we care to indulge our general political mindset and points of views upon, and make it
known to everyone that this is what we stand for through sharing POVs.
The ATS community appears to not be freedom of speech community anymore nor and community where we have the freedom to choose what political stand we
choose to affiliate ourselves with. Politics on ATS is turning/has turned into a means of discrimination and that is totally not right, and it's not
Biased views and discrimination against liberals - right wing left wing, and what have you nonsense is affecting not only me, but various other ATS
community members and it's hindering tolerance and acceptance
Mind you, I myself am non affiliated with any political ideology, mindset or agenda. This is coming from someone who does not even indulge in such
counterproductive nonsense that in my opinion, only tears people apart instead of bringing them together. Political discrimination should have
absolutely no place on ATS. There is a difference between civilly disagreeing with the concepts of someone's political affiliation, and biasly
shunning them and silencing their voices all together. Dare I call it a conspiracy?
It's not only unfair and judgmental but it's destructive. It's destructive against some of our best members participating in what should be productive
discussions only to realize they are being shunned and discriminated against for their words and views, therefore losing their inclination and desire
to actively participate in the community any longer.
Do you, ATS, really want to lose the voices of members who have relevant, interesting, fresh and "awesome" material to contribute to the forum
forever. Because at the rate I am seeing now it's already happening and some great voices are actively emerging into the darkness and turning silent.
When I first joined ATS I was ignorant as to the political discrimination that was biasly at play, both right in front of my face as well as behind
the scenes. I thought ATS was supposed to be a place where various individuals from all backgrounds, religions, political affiliations, races, and all
walks of life could come together, to civilly agree or disagree within a free productive and progressive environment of discussion and debate (while
of course abiding to the, might I say, 'very' reasonable T&C's that are in place) in hopes that we could figure out this world together, as a team
(through discussion and debate) to get to the bottom of things, and in so doing learn and gather both old and new insight and input from ALL members
regarding the topics and issues that encompass and affect our every day lives.
This is what ATS is supposed to be about am I correct or no? If I am not please do correct me If I am wrong.
