Even if there are
"good ideas/reasons/intentions" at the centers of these particular movements, it absolutely
needs to be "reigned in" as you say, yet reigning it in, as well as ruthlessly questioning and scrutinizing it, has
to be as big of a priority. @Zincy
I actually agree with you on all these points, except for gerrymandering (there are more nuances to it in what I've read about it, so I'm not going to make a decision on that, yet), filibusters (again, I don't know enough about it to make it a decision on where I should stand, in regards to it), corporate lobbying (depends on what type of corporate lobbying it is), the War on Drugs (although I do believe that simply using the drugs—and not outright producing and/or distributing it—should be treated as a misdemeanor, and not a felony), 'surveillance state' (depends on the extent of it), and private prisons (Depends on what you mean by—and deem as being—private prisons).
(NOTE: All of these things that I appear to disagree with you on, right here, are not permanent or fully-formulated stances of mine—I still need time to research them and to come to an actual conclusion on them. I'm just stating what I currently already know and/or think of these issues, at the moment.)
Also, I responded to your reply to me that you posted nearly a week ago,
yesterday. I think it's incredibly important that you read it because it contains a crucial information that may help you and others out in the long run, regarding the movement to redefine "white supremacy". Here it is.
