Are socialists/fascists/the left afraid of OPEN debate?

I've just joined recently and I've already been banned from a debate for apparently no reason. No rude words, offensive language or disrespect. It seems to be the common practice all over society where the left is constantly banning, preventing, closing down and physically attacking people who want to participate in open dialogue.

Why is the left so afraid of honest and open debate? Is it because they're afraid they'll be exposed? Or are they insecure in their own beliefs so would prefer to stick their heads in the sand? Or is it purely because they're fundamentally authoritarian that disagreement itself is a crime?

The proof is in the pudding.

In all walks of life, the media, celebrity culture, schools, universities, online forums, twitter, the people who are willing to have open debate and discourse, especially conservatives, liberals and libertarians are being prevented or chastised for doing so. There's NO DOUBT.

Not only is there some doubt, but what you claim is contrary to fundamental common sense. The political positions you describe (i.e. Conservative, Liberal and Libertarian) constitute the basis of political normality. They are the mainstream views. What possible benefit is there in censoring those views which support the existence of the status quo when the very same organisations you describe only exist because of that status quo? They are entirely dependent on people thinking within certain parameters, and that is why fringe contributors (i.e. those on the far left or far right) are almost always the ones who are censored by these platforms.

I agree that the system we currently have is based on those principles. But its those principles themselves which are being attacked and eroded. And for questioning the destruction of the principles of our society, we are called out as racist, homophobic, sexist, bigot and that we are being violent, which justifies any attack on us, physically or not.

You banned me from your 'debate' for what reason? Was there any justification to it? Did you at any point show any reason to be banned? NO. Simply disagreeing with you is enough to be banned at out in the wider society the same thing is happening

You keep trying to conflate the politically opposing terms of socialist and fascist. Fascism is a far right ideology. Are you a troll?

Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

Pay attention Nom !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he had simply said “political extremes”, would you accuse him of conflating the left and the right?

If socialist shut down debate, fascists shut down debate, and the leftnin general shuts down debate, then asking the question regarding all of them makes perfect sense.

Side: Yes
