    Bret Weinstein is amazing, I make this post:

    https://www.the16types.info/vbulleti...=1#post1341208

    And then I end up finding a video where he explains what I said in that post in addition to more things, but more lucidly. He is the kind of liberal I respect:

    Same. Imo, Christian Democratic parties are the only ones who get sort of close to my views.

    Our political views are exemplified well by this article:

    A popular notion online is that a right-winger becoming a left-winger is getting deprogrammed, but in actuality it is becoming reprogrammed. The inverse notion can be said of a left-winger becoming a right-winger is becoming red pilled. The true way to becoming deprogrammed is by looking at each issue specifically and figuring out where the left and right are more correct. That is true critical thinking, not just switching your reality tunnel from left wing to right wing or vice versa. This isn't centrism either as you can still be predominately left wing or right wing on specific issues rather than in the middle and end up on the left or the right overall.

    I used to listen to right wing YouTube channels ardently because the left wing biased media like CNN and MSNBC, etc... (minus Fox News) turned me off and then I discovered and I started listening to left wing YouTube channels and I added them to my repertoire of what I watched alongside right wing YouTube channels. Becoming deprogrammed is about expanding your beliefs and by adding alternative viewpoints, it is not done by replacing them completely with something else. I suppose this is possibly just me being 4D and expecting others to be the same. However, anyone can adopt this mentality if the desire is there without sacrificing their beliefs.

    Nominal "Right/Left" distinctions in the US are mostly disagreements over policy, embedded well within a framework of leftwing ideological assumptions that all relevant political factions agree upon. This has been the case since 1933 or so.

    I've moved away from my more hardcore Communist beliefs, but I'm still unambiguously on the left (as in not some bourgeois Liberal).
