This sub is devolving into orange man bad and that’s disappointing.
Now wait- you might say- orange man IS bad!
I agree. I’m totally on board with that! I think both political parties right now have policies that are a serious threat to individual liberties. On top of that, I think Trump as a human in general is not a great guy.
However, (to my knowledge) this subreddit is supposed to be different than the rest of reddit, which is a total a political echo chamber.
It’s frustrating to come to a place where there is supposed to be real political discussion, especially of libertarian ideals, and instead, be greeted by a top post on hot (at the time of writing) that has NOTHING to do with libertarian philosophy or even politics in general!
When I come to r/libertarian I don’t care that Trump said he had the biggest tower in Manhattan after 9/11. Awful thing to say. But it doesn’t belong here! I can read that and a variety of other “Trump Bad” posts by going to r/all. What does Trump saying that have to do with libertarianism?
I feel like leading up to the election this sub has gradually decreased in quality- and is slowly turning into the rest of Reddit, an obsession with Donald Trump.
I don’t have a solution, just a bit of a rant.
If anyone does want to discuss libertarian ideals, I’ve been reading lots of Nozick lately, and am starting “Economics in One”. Lots of interesting things in those if anyone wants to comment!
