I know the real answer is reddit but I really don’t want to go back now that I’ve already grown used to life without it. I was hoping for Lemmy to be a viable substitute but it isn’t. I can see how this place is wonderful for the certain type of person but that person is not me. My experience during the past 6+ months has been a net negative and I’m pretty much ready to move on. I just don’t know where else to go.

    I’m a pretty “left-winged” European, but I see the lack of a “moderate right” or “conservative” alternative as a real problem! Here on Lemmy and in the real world as well. When there is no place for them, people will feel the need to align with the far-right to at least have some points in common with others. And the only one who profits from this is the far-right. It’s important to have a mixed political Landscape, so Ideas can be exchanged, topics can be discussed in a meaningful way, and we don’t end up in an echo chamber.

      I agree but I also think it’s up to them to build that space.

      If your a classical conservative and believe in personal and fiscal responsibility, then it’s your job to create or contribute to a space for this.

      I think this is the problem, those people let the crazies in and then turn around and blame the victim.

      Man, I’m trying to remember the last time I saw a nail get hit so hard right on the head but I’m coming up empty.
