It's not left and right so much as it is authoritarian versus liberty. The audience here tends to be much more libertarian-minded (little 'l') than other parts of the internet, especially reddit. I think an anti-censorship, anti-mod (that is, authority) mentality is what drove a lot of people over here. So a lot of us share that even with plenty of other types coming for all sorts of other reasons.

As well as the media shilling of allowing the government to spy on us without directly saying it.

Whats funny is that liberal ideals for the last several hundred years have been largely good in the western world. Things like the abolishment of slavery, women's rights, etc.

But now that those "radical" ideals are mainstream society has over corrected. I think we just need a decade or two for people to realize that groups of people don't need special rights and for things to balance out. Will we get past the hyper sensitivity? Who knows.

Classic liberalism is what you are referring to.

Voat appears to be centerist currently from my perspective.
