Anti-liberal bias? Not at @ArcDigi! We have an amazing lineup of writers who fall all over the ideological spectrum & represent a diverse range of epistemological philosophies.

Democracy prevails in diversity, which is exactly what @ArcDigi delivers. Go see for yourself :)
"Humans like binary thinking, especially in politics. If the language of right and left is not going anywhere, and it seems the phrases will be with us a long time hence, we ought to nail down some meanings." -@Joshua_A_Tait, 'Fascism comes from the Right'
"If you’re looking for the party that upholds traditional conservative principles, you’re not going to find it in today’s GOP and you’re not going to get it back by rewarding bigotry with your vote."
A socialist perspective on Russia denialism, by @ExistentialEnso: medium.com/p/socialist-ru…
"The ideology has bled beyond politics into social behavior." -@SollenbergerRC, on how the right’s refusal to apologize is ripping apart our social fabric.

My piece on the Trump supporters & Russian-linked Twitter accounts who astroturfed a "movement" aimed at damaging the Democratic Party and dividing Democratic voters. #WalkAway

The claim that the Democratic Party wants to legalize infanticide "has no basis in fact. It is not a mere misrepresentation, though. It is unspeakably vile: a slander wholly, solely meant to demonize the speakers’ political foes." -@WFKARS.

Of course, we also publish fact-based articles covering a huge range of health, science, and tech topics, like this piece by @WFKARS on the public health miracle known as vaccination.

... and my piece looking at how Russian propaganda on YouTube promoted voter suppression ahead of the 2016 election.

... and my piece on the Trump admin's war on science:

"Science is the best tool we have for understanding and describing the world around us. If scientific terminology is restricted and shared vocabulary discarded, science will suffer. People will too."
"By thwarting any attempt by the nation’s premier public health institution to investigate how guns comprise a threat to our collective well-being, or [how to contain] that threat, the NRA has directly contributed to the prevalence of gun violence..."

Of course, @ArcDigi publishes conservative voices, too -- like this piece by @JayCaruso, criticizing the Republican Party for abandoning their principles to support Trump's "National Emergency."

I don't agree with every article that @ArcDigi publishes, just like I don't agree with everything my family, friends, and neighbors say. But we can disagree with people and still co-exist respectfully in the same place. In fact, this is the lived experience of most Americans.
Tolerance is ultimately about the pursuit of truth; about being able to see the value of another person's perspective or truth even when you disagree with it.

(There are limits, of course: Viewpoints should only be tolerated to the extent that they don’t harm others).
A healthy democracy can't survive without a vibrant public square. The echo-chamber that exists online isn't representative of the US, nor is it healthy.

That's why I'm proud to be part of @ArcDigi -- & I hope you'll join us by reading our articles & following us on Twitter!✌️❤️
