As we get closer to the election, and more people start paying attention, that '53 out of 100' will be higher.

Please, remember to be(e) nice when using Beehaw. Demeaning accusatory language, targeted at another user, is NOT nice. Thank you.

Our overarching rule, here at Beehaw, is to be(e) nice. Your words are very far from nice. Consider this a warning.

...I have no idea how you would even begin to resolve the issue.

For now, we must encourage all of the younger people to vote. The younger people are, understandably, frustrated by the current American political system. It can be changed with more participation over time. Doing nothing (not voting, etc.) just worsens the problem.

The far right GOP knows all of this and makes it difficult for anyone to vote. They use tactics such as gaslighting in order to cheat their way into office.

Is it the average American news sources messing with people’s minds that much?

I'd estimate that 98% of American news sources are either very biased or straight up propaganda machines. I can only rely on National Public Radio and The Associated Press.

We can still find engagement in small niche subs on Reddit. We've known, for many years, that people were going to move away from large corporate-controlled sites such as Reddit, Twitter etc..

The Fediverse is addressing this. It isn't a panacea. However, it is a re-imagining of what we want the Internet to be.

There are many others, that will come along after us, to address this further.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I did not intend for anyone to be uncomfortable.

...does this mean that saying “Joe Biden is acting like a fascist autocrat”, is ok, but applying it as a title, as in “Joe Biden the Fascist Autocrat” is not?

In my opinion, yes. However, this is something that I would want to discuss with the other administrators/moderators in order to reach a conclusion.

Name-calling is a form of argument in which insulting or demeaning labels are directed at an individual or group.

Labeling Joe Biden as a 'fascist' is name-calling. Whether or not he is, truly, a fascist is not what is being addressed here.

Beehaw is a space that strives to be(e) nice apart from the thousands of Internet spaces that could care less.

...staff here defend these people from criticism.

Show me where Beehaw staff have defended anyone from criticism.

The subject at hand is name-calling. It is not nice.

The subject that you keep reiterating is current events and politics.

Do you understand the difference?
