yet when it comes to "hate" it is hard to see much difference between the alt right or the alt left. Seeing Antifa scumbags attacking cops it makes it hard to swallow that only one side of the ledger is consumed by "hate". There seems to be a lot of it going around on both sides.

Intolerance of the intolerant is different than intolerance of innocent people.

To say they are two sides of the same coin is merely an attempt at intellectual gymnastics from someone who is incapable of sticking the landing.

Yes, in this day and age one expects people to have some understanding of the paradox of tolerance, either explicitly or implicitly:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_tolerance
I am no fan of antifa, but the false equivalence that the apologists for the alt-right like to use, and the disingenuous use of the term "alt-left" is pathetic in this day and age.

How does one even attempt to verify who is worse or more violent? It seems to be all based upon opinions and conjectures as to whether it's false equivalency or not. Bad ideas should be condemned, and violence/thuggery should be condemned. Legal peaceful protests are fine no matter how repugnant the ideas held by the protestors are. I would guess that 95% of the protests on both sides are peaceful, but they don't get media attention until they escalate into violence, which, if you want attention for your cause, means you have the temptation to cause violence just to get attention.

caps off........I don't know if this can be duplicated, however with the gates foundation receiving literally BILLIONS from people like Buffet and others can this really not be repeated in a practical fashion?

And groups like the gates foundation have more money than god and could implement this, done by a group that seems to care will get a result better than governments tossing cash at "programs"

Get government involved and instantly things go to crap.

Yes. The problem there, I would suggest, is bureaucracy and lack of accountability. I have seen programs
funded by government but delivered by non-profit agencies that have been very effective.

Yeah...I’d say it leans quite heavily to the latter...I especially like the sections about Alien Implants.maybe next time base your argument on a work of fiction more heavily inspired by reality. Like Harry Potter.
