How do we encourage "reasonable" far left thinkers (should I put that last word in quotes too)? to come and chat with us?
I know we are not an echo chamber here, but the lack of far left thinkers is fairly evident.
The one thing I have noticed is that on AVEN is that those who often advocate for the far left are those that will be the most bitter, the ones that will pick holes in everything rather than concede a point, and the ones that will attack the person rather than the argument.
Is this a trait of the left, or just a coincidence? I really would like to get a more cerebral discussion on some subjects, and learn more about what the far left thinks, and how they arrive at their opinions. I really am left thinking that the process is simply "It is that way cos I some one says it is". I just think there HAS to be more to it than that.
Has anyone got a clue how we could tempt more of the left to come here and debate?
