My main concern is the aspect of "polarization"; I feel as though there are many people of various political alignments, specifically "the right"/Republican/conservative, who we should not entirely "cancel"/feel as though they are unable to contribute meaningful insight and cooperate with this New Communism. It is true, that the general consensus of "the right," especially the radical right/"alt-right," that they do have fascist intentions—we cannot ignore that many of "the left"/neoliberals are of the same mindset in regards specifically to the regimentation of society, although tend to have "better intentions." What do you think can be accomplished in regards to including more people that may align more "right," even radically so? I feel as though when BA's statement regards many "fascists" as being unmoved/unreasonable with science and objective truth as well as facts entirely, this is too blanketing of many who are merely indoctrinated and "know not what they do/think.”
