A subreddit for discussing how power operates in our global society- but less about how that power is abused. We're not interested in corruption, because everyone knows that is bad. It's more the day-to-day workings of power that are legal but exploitative anyway.

A subreddit for discussing how power operates in our global society- but less about how that power is abused. We're not interested in corruption, because everyone knows that is bad. It's more the day-to-day workings of power that are legal but exploitative anyway. Talk about how the powerful align everyday citizens to their interests.

RULES

  1. No Ad Hominem: As a way to keep things civil while allowing for disparate points of view, ad hominem comments are not allowed. Saying: “You are stupid” will get you a warning and then a ban. Saying: “That idea is stupid because...” Is fine. This is not a safe space. Ample disagreement is to be expected when participating here. The person you are replying to may be on any side of polarizing issues and we encourage you to counter their arguments instead of replying ONLY: “well that is racist/misogynistic/misandrist/anti-choice/anti-Isreal/Capitalist/barbaric cultural practisey/pro-telegrapher/” or whichever side of these things you fall on.

  2. Do not break the rules of reddit

  3. Do not threaten physical violence, which includes suicide and self-harm related threats

  4. Do not dox

  5. Do not brigade

Please report!

DISTINGUISHED COMMENTS

We have a policy of distinguishing excellent comments and we encourage you to use the “report” button to suggest those comments which are astounding—particularly if they made you reconsider your views. A comment that is eligible for being distinguished should meet at least some of the following criteria:

  • Significant effort was put into this comment: they pulled out details of their sources or spent time to search through a document or rift through witness accounts etc.

  • The comment has a compelling and unique argument and/or presents sound evidence of which you had not previously heard

  • There was no ad hominen attacks in the comment and they addressed some criticism to which they were replying, not the character of the user to whom they were replying

MODERATION

Our moderators are held to a higher standard than any user, and they can and will be immediately removed if they break any of the rules outlined in our moderator guide.

Neera Tanden is an indefensibly corrupt corporatist and toxic against progressives. Alexandra Rojas should step down from Justice Democrats for defending Tanden. Please don't make us regret supporting JD — or change the name to Injustice Democrats.
