#1 Politics isn't the problem. People being radical isn't the problem, that's a side-effect: the cause is lack of education. You have people either arguing that the systemic racism camp is gonna be the next Hitler and going to usher in some Communist Autocracy, and on the other side you have people rambling about systemic racism. Here's a new idea that you probably haven't heard before: both of those groups are wrong. And here's one of the main issues: everyone is treating this like it's a conflict between two 'ideologies' that have to be balanced and that when ideology becomes too prominent at the expense of another, it becomes authoritarian. This sounds very interesting and deep, but actually it's wrong, and personally I think this notion is meaningless. The issue as I see it is mainly the first one - that Conservatives are terrified and afraid that this is going to be doom of America and lions and goats and shit will be flying everywhere as in the aftermath of a nuclear fuck attack. The second issue, I'm pretty sure this is something you've never heard from anyone else before, this whole 'political spectrum' idea is an extremely simplistic one. I think it's actually kind of dumb and certainly clichť, and the reason it's so popular is that its so simple that you don't need to spend more than 3 seconds thinking about it. Even if you add 2 other dimensions like I've heard it being proposed, it's still extremely simple.
#2 One other thing I find hilarious is how everyone on the Internet is yapping about tolerance/freedom of speech and all that mumbo jumbo. Really makes you wonder where all the bad intolerant people are. Here's my take on things: they don't exist, everyone is taking everything else way too seriously, and people assume other people are automatically trying to screw you over just because they disagree with what you're saying; here's the kicker. It's not you they have a problem with. It's all the white noise thundering in their head that won't let them think.
#3 One other thing, and this is actually a major issue (I think). Everyone is just using waaaaaaay too much moralisation as a substitute for reasoning, and immediately assume that if it's a dictator they're 100% guaranteed to do like horrible things; do these people think dictators can rule without a base of support? If you shit on people, you're gonna lose that base of support, LOL. Whatever the fuck happened to pragmatism and putting yourself in someone else's shoes? Also, one other thing that is a huge problem, is that people don't think about issues deeply so they get attached to things that take like 3 seconds to think about and often these things are absolutes like 'YOU SHOULD NEVER DO X'. Here's an example from one of the latest games I've played: Wasteland 3. There's this guy called the Patriarch who's founded a "nation" in post-apocalyptic Colorado, and he's not exactly a nice guy because he's a dictator. However, the quality of life in his nation is extremely high, and there's little to no repression (ppl aren't getting gunned down on the streets, and there's actually a semblance of order and a civilised life going on). I saw a post on Reddit that said you should not side with him (long story short, you're part of a 'militia' from Arizona that supplies protection to people and tried to do something similar to what the Patriarch did, but failed), because 'you should not support a dictator as that's against what the Rangers stand for.' Are these people fucking serious? He's not killing people. He's not throwing the opposition in jail. The worst thing he did was make a deal with nomadic slavers and paid them off to fuck off and attack someone else.
Edit: The first few sentences in the paragraph #3 about dictators are just examples
