The lemmy has been a hotbed of infighting and sectarianism for the last few month. We need to take responsibility for our own house, because if we don’t, we’ll keep on losing and failing in movements.

    Perhaps we should first of all critically assess what we agree upon instead of skipping this incremental step for the sake of pointing out our disagreements. Because maybe that’s what’s causing this unsolvable divide is the a priori stuff that we have thoughtlessly agreed upon.

    Ok question, what does everyone agree upon in the leftist servers?

      uhh, anti capitalism, the basics of free housing, Leftist aesthetics, Climate action (but a little contention on how, but it can be respectful), there have been good discussions of history that have nothing to do with capitalism vs socialism, dunking on billionaires, discussion of African Anti-imperialism (I haven’t had anyone who hates sankara), and that Avatar the Last Airbender is the perfect show.

  • Come up with some set rules that the community is well-informed of, set lines, and what happens when they are crossed is guaranteed. Crack down if you gotta, I do like the temp ban touch grass idea rather than eating permanent bans and having to reroll accounts. I hate to say it but the community isn’t yet at the point it can self-police, makes me think of the meme of Grounds Keeper Willie and Principal Skinner.

    People look at HB as a good case, it’s not a utopia, its what Lemmy could be quite easily, but they still have struggle sessions (not like they used to) and waves of wreckers come through like its the ocean so often.

      perhaps, but it is a reasonable question, but their other actions could be taken under suspicion

    You could start by practicing what you preach, I guess?

    Judging from your engagement with us, it seems more like you’re stirring the pot than making an earnest attempt to do anything positive.

    In the first place, I don’t actually see much in the ways of infighting here. Where is all this terrible sectarianism you talk about? The only things you’ve posted are assertions with reference to basically nothing.
