A good example is how American society treats the Amish. That 8767 s pluralism in action. 8775 Tolerance, 8776 by contrast, is what happened to Brendan Eich.
Yes, Republicans telling this joke are explicitly saying that they consider Democrats evil. It is not a reliable source for how Democrats view Republicans, so maybe I shouldn 8767 t have said 8775 opposite. 8776
What I want is for the left to be neutral with respect to Islam. I want it to be between Islamophobia and Islamophilia. (The left I grew up with didn’t even like religion.) There are abuses that will emerge if either prevails, so the best policy is one that is neutral and is on the lookout for both types of abuse. I want the left to say, “Yes, we know that Muslims have been victims, but some are also likely to be victimizers, and we can’t have that.”

Do you have links to extended versions of this? I 8767 ve seen the basics, but nothing including 8775 a few groups that don’t fit in like the Grays 8776 .
I did use this as one of several inspirations, but I deliberately played it down both because I am trying to do something subtly different from Moldbug, and because mentioning him never helps.
However, if you have 6% difference, there is less likely to be sharp and discernable distinction between the groups and more likely to be overlapping factions one supposes, although that may not be enough to make conflict evitable.
And you 8767 re familiar enough with the majority of 8775 Bible belt, evangelical Republican Christians 8776 to be sure they 8767 re all 8775 horribly bigoted 8776 ?
