While I agree that the common ground between truth and a lie is a lie, I think you're simplifying a complex idea. Not many people considers themselves a liar, therefore one would never have the construct (truth vs. a lie) you're mentioning.

I also agree that there's not much point in trying to convince a person who holds a radical view into an opposite position. However, there's something to be said for fighting the good fight - not necessarily to convince someone who can't be convinced, but instead to attempt to reach the person on the fence who is reading these posts on their lunch hour.

they can both be extremist sides, among people who dont want to be in an extreme side or who might not even see the issue as 2 black-and-white extremes. youd need to get the thoughts of those neutral people with halfway point discussions/subverves?

I think so too but who are these people right now and what are they saying?

believe that everyone deserves to be safe from criticism

It quickly unravels at this point.

The thing that annoys me about FPH is when they post pictures of fat people in the gym. Like, really? You're going to mock somebody who's actively trying to better themselves. How is that going to encourage people to lose weight ?

To answer the OP. I think SJW are filled with propaganda that encourages censoring the opposition and silencing them with labels like racist, sexist. There's no discussion with SJW so they don't hear both sides and their views are never challenged.

On your first point: Lots of fat people go to the gym, but don't actually follow through with anything meaningful (e.g. they go there but never work out or they continue to eat like shit). The only thing that anyone can trust is the result, so fat people will get the respect of FPH only after they've succeeded.

It's life, so if you solve this you get world peace. Call the two groups what you will but it comes down to that left-brain/right-dominance theory. ( Flashy Mercades Benz graphic )

Ideally we would all learn to use both halves of our brain, but that's a pretty big ask.

Getting people to understand the other side is critical for peace on Voat or worldwide.

Yes, it is a reflection of the big picture - except it's being exploited for all it's worth at the moment.

I like to think most of the time people choose to do the best thing, if they only know what that is. We don't have to take a big leap forward - one step at a time will do.

I have an idea. Stop creating threads about fph to stir up drama and just show people where the block subverse button is.

Take all the fat SJW and put them on their own island / piece of land. They can run their own society as a safe space all they want and host as many Syrians as they like. Let them figure common sense out the hard way,
