/r/DebateAnarchismIdea about a inter-subreddit debate.

from TheHunnicWhale to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 11 days ago

Hey, me and a few others over at /r/debatefascism were thinking about setting up a debate between a few political-debate subreddits and we were wondering whether you'd be interested in taking part?

If ya want to know more, just message me or reply to this.

re: Idea about a inter-subreddit debate.

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to TheHunnicWhale sent 10 days ago

The sub isn't interested in participating in any sort of formal capacity or qua sub.

A user made a thread in the sub though about this, so individuals that are interested will respond to that person, I am sure.

/r/DebateAnarchismInter Debate proposal from the fascists

from hamjam5[M] to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 11 days ago

How would you all like to respond to the inter debate proposal from the fascists.

Individually I am interested in participating, but I'm not sure there should be a single response qua sub or sub involvement. I'm cool with just letting the person who sent the message know that someone else started a thread on it in the sub, and then let individuals participate as they like from there.

But if yall would prefer a more deliberative sub participation in the invite, I'm cool with that too.

re: Inter Debate proposal from the fascists

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 10 days ago

No way I'd be interested in participating in an event run by fascists. If anything, I'd prefer to remove the link to them in the sidebar.

re: Inter Debate proposal from the fascists

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 10 days ago

I'm more with emma. If individuals want to participate thats their business, but no interest in being associated with anything that fascists are involved in in an official capacity.

re: Inter Debate proposal from the fascists

Yeah, I didn't think there would be interest in involvement as a sub. Just wanted to make sure.

/r/DebateAnarchismHelp socialism win the battle of ideas! (Request from the Model Socialist International!)

from arsenimferme to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 18 days ago

Hi there!

I'm writing to see whether you have any objections to me posting an advert on your subreddit on behalf of the Model World Socialist International.

What is the Model World?

The Model World is a collection of subreddits which simulate various countries' parliaments and government. Redditors play the governments and Reddit is the electorate. Along with that there's press organisations, conspiracies, international organisation, and more!

Who am I and What's the Model Socialist International?

I'm a member of the Model Socialist International, a collection of socialist parties across the Model World who have come together to cooperative with the aim of a socialist model world. Particularly to coordinate each separate party's advertising into one post as to now annoy the subreddits we look to post on. (This means if you let us advertise 10,000 more people won't come in asking to advertise also.)

Why we'd like to advertise on your subreddit.

As I mentioned the Socialist/Communist vote bloc is strong on Reddit, however so are the Social Democrat and Liberal branches. While socialist parties generally do quite well the Model World community is taking an increasingly reactionary turn so we figured it's time to start recruiting new members before it's too late. We're going to all leftist subreddits under 10,000 subscribers (we're not allowed to advertise on anything) to try get as many new members as possible.

What the advertisement to look like/when will it happen?

Probably something like this:

Hello people of [Subreddit Name]!

I'm here to tell you about a rather fun side of reddit you might not know about. There's a collection of subreddits that simulate the government of various countries, coming together to form the Model World. Not only this, but almost all of them have an active socialist party, and all of them are looking for new members.

It may sound a bit silly but I assure you if you’re looking for somewhere to learn about your countries government, debate with other people on ideology, or develop your arguments for socialism; it really is a great opportunity. Getting to play at government is surprisingly fun and the communities that pop up around it are usually a good time. If you’re bored of randomly browsing reddit it’s at least worth a shot!

Here’s a list of the model countries, their subreddits, and their respective socialist parties. If you’re interested in any of them just follow the link and join the party.

Country Subreddit Socialist Party Join Link
United Kingdom /r/MHoC Radical Socialist Party Join
United States /r/ModelUsGov Radical Left Party Join
Canada /r/CMHOC Socialist Party Join
Germany /r/mbundestag Die Linke Join
The Netherlands /r/RMTK Communistische Partij Nederland Join
Sweden /r/iksdagen Socialistiska Vänsterpartiet Join

I'd really encourage you at least give a look in. You've got nothing to lose!


Additionally polls are now open for an election going on over at /r/MHoC. The Radical Socialist Party have just spent a term in Government with the Green Party but a new fascist party the "National Unionist Party" has formed to contest them. We'd really appreciate it if you vote for us. Here's a link to the voting form and here's a link to our manifesto. Vote now!

We'll likely include something specific to your subreddit if possible. The post will probably go up some time between the 26th and 31st, if that's ok.

So...

We'd really appreciate it if you'd allow us to post just a short advert, and even more appreciative if you were to sticky it during the time the polls are open. We'll go ahead and post something as long as you don't have any objections, so please, tell us now and we'll take you off our advertising list.


TL;DR: Left wing politics nerds want to post a advertisement on your subreddit so we can secure the domination of socialist ideas in a pretend world. Please?

/r/DebateAnarchismBasic questions

from pnoque[M] to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 1 month ago

Hello fellow mods, I need to ask you all about something that has been bothering me. It seems like a lot of the posts lately in /r/DebateAnarchism are not debate topics but basic questions about anarchism. Should we be removing those posts and referring OPs to /r/Anarchy101? Seems silly to have non-debate topics in a debate sub. Perhaps we should require posts to be submitted as a debate topic that has more than one side and is more than just informative. Thoughts?

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Or should be just keep it easy and casual?

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Maybe just try to make it a point of suggesting people repost on 101? I feel like a lot of the time that people do this, it's less that they are looking for info about it and more that they think they know the answer and want to argue about it.

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

I prefer keeping it casual, and I like JCC's suggestion to just respond to posts you think aren't really debate by recommending to them to try 101 -- seems like this is normally what is done by folks in such instances anyway.

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

OK, sounds good. Thank you both for your feedback!

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

What do anarchists think of revisiting this topic?

I mean, seriously, right? I have no problem with people asking a question that may lead to debate if they take the time to actually frame it, but these, "what do you think about____" with no content in the prompt -- I think it may be time to remove those kinds of questions with a request to the OP to actually write a little bit of a prompt framing the topic for discussion and debate.

Thoughts?

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

Agreed.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Yes, that's reasonable, it does seem to be a constant issue.

re: Basic questions

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

Sounds good.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 1 month ago

Would someone wanna come up with a few sentence long boiler plate thing that we can copy paste on posts like this? Like how askhistorians has a standard "this post has been deleted because...." thing that gets used over and over?

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

Good idea. As a starting point, on the three threads I removed today (I didn't remove ones that had comments), I said the following:

Hi, the mod team has decided to remove your post. The topic of discussion is totally fine, but, without writing more of a prompt, you haven't really framed the topic in such a way that it facilitates much debate or discussion.

[I then put a different suggestion on what sort of prompt may help facilitate conversation specific to each post I removed, for example: "Perhaps you could repost with a short description of the relevant parts of Veblen and Marx that you are interested in the opinion of anarchists on. Something like: M thinks x, v thinks y -- I prefer either x or v because of z, which of these is closer to anarchist perspectives."]

Otherwise, your post would probably be better suited for /r/anarchy101

re: Basic questions

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to hamjam5 sent 1 month ago

Beautiful.

re: Basic questions

from emma-_______[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

If you want to use standardized responses like this we could set some up using /r/toolbox's removal reasons.

re: Basic questions

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to emma-_______ sent 27 days ago

So im kind of torn on this right now. The post about the difference between private and personal property seems like it should be deleted and sent to 101, the OP clearly has some misunderstandings about anarchism and stuff...but at the same time, so many times I've seen posts like that in 101, and it usually ends up that the OP clearly doesn't just want their question answered, but wants to argue about it, and so i suggest them go to the debate sub. Is this just an endless feedback loop we can't control?

re: Basic questions

from hamjam5[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 27 days ago

I think we should err on the side of not removing such posts. Sometimes people put in a lot less effort and it is clear they are just asking a question , whereas this person wrote quite a prompt that already contains some push back and debate within it.

If it is one of the clear low effort question posts I think removing those to de-clutter things is helpful.

Having studied some of the European history of Jews, I'm quite perplexed why so many anarchists have told me they consider them their allies, so I wanted to see what the justification was.

Hey ya'll, I've noticed that some of my comments under the Wildism AMA are being automatically tagged as spam. One hasn't yet been untagged.

I just want to give you a heads up so that tomorrow when the AMA is stickied and official, you can fix that problem, if that's possible. If it isn't, let me know so I can edit the post with a notification that answers may be delayed.

Thanks ya'll.

re: question about a post

This place is more geared toward debate than critique. If there's anything specific in there that you'd want to debate you could post them here. But if you're just looking for a general critique on your writing this isn't really the right place.

/r/DebateAnarchismWildism AMA

from wildism to  /r/DebateAnarchism/  sent 1 month ago

Hi, I'm considering the possibility of doing an AMA on wildism, esp. given recent controversy around the eco-extremists. Is this something the subreddit would be willing to host?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 1 month ago

Hey, just making sure you didn't accidentally mark this as unread and then forget about it.

re: Wildism AMA

from pnoque[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 1 month ago

I have reservations about a wildism AMA from user named wildism who mods the wildism subreddit and spams wildism.org everywhere.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to pnoque sent 1 month ago

Okay. I will say that I only just learned about the 30% rule and am currently trying to fix that (I've hovered around 30% but have gone over it a few times), I just can't post random stuff that doesn't really matter, so it's taking a bit.

As for the subreddit and username, I'm not sure why those things by themselves are problems, unless it's just in conjunction with the 30% problem.

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 1 month ago

By that I mean, please let me know why the are problems if they are.

It's a "no" from me but each mod will weigh in and we'll go with what the majority of us votes.

I personally am not interested in it, but if others in the community want it or other mods want it, I don't see a problem with it.

Perhaps make a post on the Schedule thread seeing if others in the community other than the mods want to show interest in seeing such an AMA. If so, I'll be happy to add it to the schedule.

re: Wildism AMA

Okay, I'll do that a little later today.

Wildism, are you familiar or friendly with jeriah bowser? He has an ama tentatively scheduled, and I feel there may be some overlap in what you both may want to talk about. Do you think you two could tag team an ama on wildism and wilderness therapy?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

I'm familiar with Jeriah. We have radically different definitions of "wildism" and I think he actually stopped using the word. Not sure though. We don't actually get along so I don't keep up with him.

re: Wildism AMA

from justcallcollect[M] via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to wildism sent 1 month ago

Ok. I don't personally see any reason not to let you do an ama. Even if us mods aren't super interested, it's not for us anyway so....you wanna do it after the anti civ one? Unless another mod has serious reservations beyond personal disinterest?

re: Wildism AMA

from wildism via  /r/DebateAnarchism/  to justcallcollect sent 1 month ago

Is this something the mods have agreed on? I don't know if you can see everyone's replies in messages, but it seems like you are all saying slightly different things.

But yes, I think doing it after the anti-civ one would be most appropriate.
