I have noticed a decrease of vocally politically right users on Debate.org. To give evidence of my assumption that the "age of the left" is coming; demographics of DDO show that 20% of users identify as "Democrat" whereas as only 16% identify as "Republican". On top of that, 38% of users identify with politically left ideologies, whereas only 17% identify with politically right ideologies. I'm not sure if people are afraid to identify as "conservative" at this time or what the deal is, but the statistics are very telling.

Politics is not a line from left to right. It's a line whos ends connect. Yes, a circle, and we all fit somewhere within

That's... something I've never heard of. Could you elaborate on that? Why do you think the political spectrum is a circle?

Take the two extremes far left socialism far right fascism/communism there is little difference between the two.
What do you think?

When I joined like 6 very active conservatives joined with me so it seemed to change the playing field.

I confirm that there's usually a slight liberal bias in the Polls section, though the liberal:conservative ratio isn't as large as 2:1.

I think there have been more new users that are right wing lately, but overall DDO has a fairly atrong left wing bias.

The left is dying around the world. In America, Canada, Australia, Britain, and Europe, the left is in political minority.

A lot of it has to do with the division between feminists and multiculturalists right now over Islam. Feminists hate Islam while multiculturalists love it. Feminists despise it as an element of patriarchic religion that opposes consumerism. Multiculturalists love it as an alternative to Eurocentrism.

Due to the libertarian-socialist debate, feminists also hate Islam since it seems to be a hypersensitive religion over the NAP that is willing to engage in extreme discipline. Multiculturalists love it because of its opposition to rugged individualism.

Right now, it looks like the age of the left is leaving, not coming.
