If you want to see an example of a circlejerk on DDO, start a thread pertaining to anarchism.

The problem is that the site just goes in the same direction. People that come in here and are persistently statist. I don't believe this is because of some grand correctness of that ideology, I think it's just a desire to "fit in" and be dramatically inducted into the reigning crowd, sometimes this is on purpose, other times it occurs subconsciously...OR people are more easily persuaded because the preexisting statist majority leaves other opinions grossly underrepresented, and in the ubiquitous persistence of certain ideas, whatever conviction you had about anything that wasn't statist, would begin to soften, if not fall entirely. And so the trend continues.

So, yes, I will say the site has a "circle jerk" problem, and it's apparently contagious.

Please point us to a thread...statists vs. anarchists, in which you were allegedly "circle-jerked".

k thx.

Oh, yeah.

Sorry about not having me on your side.I tried anarchism on for size. It didn't take.
But if the chance remains
to see those better days,
I'd cut the cannons down.

If the State paid me enough, I would totally drop Anarchism as my ideology.

Funny thing is, that DDO has ALWAYS been extremely libertarian and anarchist friendly. While totalitarians have been extremely underrepresented.
