    Modern-day political discussions have been getting pretty silly in my opinion. I think we've lost the whole concept of political debate in favor of falsely painting some other person or group as xyz. Especially in the United States. Debates have become less about opinions and more about labels. And that sounds really broad and vague but let me elaborate.
    Instead of listening to, well, your opinion, people will usually immediately link you up with a label such as conservative, feminist, fascist, alt-right, some more extreme than others. That's not how arguments are fought. Because if you disagree with a liberal in terms of immigration, you're a MAGA hat-wearing racist/fascist. If you believe in women's rights, you're a feminist. If you're not a feminist, you're sexist. If you don't like the idea of women with bionic arms in Battlefield 5, you're an alt-right troll. Oh yeah, and you're sexist too.
    Why do we do that? Like I said, it defeats the whole purpose. Because from that point on, you're not arguing against the same points. You're arguing with the most exaggerated personification of the "opposite side" of the spectrum. By the way, on the topic of "opposite side", there is none. The problem I've been talking about got so out of hand that people don't even consider you to be anywhere on the political spectrum except left or right. Politics is such a wide concept, why tell someone (and yourself) that you have to be on one "side?" If I wanted stronger gun control, that doesn't give you the right to tell me I'm a liberal. If I like what president Trump is doing, that doesn't give you the right to tell me I'm conservative. I believe whatever I want, I don't need a bandwagon to get me moving. And you don't either. If you believe in women's rights but don't like other things some extreme feminists do, you're not obligated to call yourself a feminist. If someone tells you that if you believe in equal rights you're a feminist, they can screw right off. You know that's not what feminism really means, they know it too. You don't need a label for your complicated soup of opinions.
    The political spectrum is much wider than left and right. You have your very own spectrum, and you don't need this garbage to tell you what you believe. I saw an article the other day titled "Donald Trump’s Message Resonates With White Supremacists". Basically it talked about how something he said on Twitter was an opinion also shared by white supremacists. If I understand correctly (because news outlets like this tend to dodge the point and sources to further push their agenda), he tweeted a quote from Mussolini saying “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep”. And then some actual white supremacists were like "yeah I like his opinion, good quote". And then suddenly Donald Trump is a white supremacist as well? That's such an outlandish and out-of-the-blue thing to say. Yeah, people are allowed to agree with what someone says, just as much as you are to disagree. If you don't like that he quoted Mussolini, or the quote itself, that's alright. But I don't think anyone has the right to tell you you're a white supremacist, especially from something as stupid as a quote.
    Going back to the point, we've gotten so used to this that it's customary. This is why liberal media is so often called "fake news", and why I even have to call it liberal media. Because it's not news at all. It's not. It is completely opinionated, biased, exaggerated and sometimes fabricated in favor of their opinion. Of course liberals aren't the only ones guilty of this, it's just the most prominent recent example. And that's just how media works. It's kinda sickening that literally nobody can talk about these things without associating the person they're talking to with an overarching demographic, and by extension mistake what they say and to put words in their mouths.
    TL;DR: Political discussions are really painful when the person you're talking to thinks you're an extremist for disagreeing with them. We do things like this and then wonder why the other person just doesn't get it. Why we're constantly left with "Why is this person so dense? Why can't they just agree with me?" It's because no one's actually arguing at that point. At least not to each other, and not about their actual opinions. It baffles me how we let ourselves dig this whole so deep. What I want you to take away is that your opinion is your own. You are not this or that because you believe xyz. Labels should never tell you or anyone else what you actually believe. You don't have to call yourself a liberal or a conservative, or even a moderate. You don't have to say that you're just in the middle. Because there is no middle. There is no right, there is no left. There is no spectrum. It's a scam. It's fake. It is actually nonexistent. Your opinion is your opinion, and it always will be.

    Do not revive dead topics
    A topic is "dead" if the latest reply is more than 2 months old. Rather than bumping them to the top, start a new topic. You may revive your own topics, as long as you add new information. Topic revival is only allowed if the topic is posted in the Mine-imator creations or Mine-imator resources sections of the forums.

    Idk I've said it myself more than once but honestly I feel like at this point the term seems to be thrown around a little too much every now and then. Like, really, think about it twice, what do you really mean when you say the MI forums are "dead"?

    Oh boy here comes another controversial status update on a Minecraft animation website.
    So social justice warriors can be silly. We all know that. But there was a recent situation with that game Kingdom Come: Deliverance that got me thinking.
    If you don't know what I'm talking about, basically the game didn't have black people in it because it wasn't historically accurate. There weren't black-skinned people in Bohemia at the time. They hired multiple historians to confirm that. But the social justice warriors still got at it.
    So what I came to realize is that social justice warriors are part of the wide, general problem. They of course think they have good intentions by protesting racism, but they're putting racism in places where it doesn't exist. They're pretending something is racist so that they can have a sense of pride by standing against it. It's silly and ridiculous. There was absolutely no point in questioning War Horse on their historical facts. They hired historians, friends. You can't tell them they're wrong because it makes you feel uncomfortable that there aren't dark-skinned people in the game.
    Also, further on the subject that the SJWs are starting arguments that don't need to be started, SJWs don't recognize other races. They only see whites and blacks. They see one side as privileged and one side as oppressed. There doesn't always have to be a dark-skinned person in a game. The game is about Czech history. There are more races than white and black, and that includes Bohemians. This SJW mindset causes a lot of issues. It's why we still think racism is as big of a problem (it's not). It's why we joke about liberals making things up about Trump and treating him as an awful person. Because to SJWs there is always a problem. When something doesn't agree with them they're allowed to call it this and that, mysogynistic and racist, etc. Because they don't agree with it. SJWs are causing part of the problem that is racism today.
