As we just launched this site, we're still adding features and ramping up promotion. Let us know what you'd like to see here and we'll make it so! Our goal is to help facilitate not only the exchange of ideas but to help consolidate a clear message on important topics.
Also, please give us your thoughts on how we should best position this site so as to live up to the ideals of the IDW movement.
Thanks so much!
I’m a therapist from Canada. I’ve been persecuted within my association for my conservative, Christian values & I’m seeking libertarian, free thinkers. Our schools & msm are fully conquered by the left & we are facing a leftist NWO. Let’s walk together for freedom & actual diversity
Just got on the site. I am excited to see what this is about. I love Jordan , Dave ,Sam, and the Weinsteins etc. I used to be what you would call a sjw and like all of you i woke up and noticed they left me and went crazy. I have 3 kids ,one a 12 year old boy who is being told in school he is bad for being white and male. Canada at least Saskatchewan is really messed up.
I’m a Christian psychotherapist from England and am feeling very suffocated by the lack of free speech for those that have an opposing opinion to those on the left, I’m fed up of being called names like bigot, racist, for wanting boarder control or conservative system in our country - I love Ben Shapiro, Andrew Klavan, Michael Knowles, Matt Walsh and Jordan Peterson and have been following their podcasts and YouTube videos for a few years now - thank you for setting this up so I can hear what others do to help themselves in this not so free society we live in
Make it easy to upvote (ie with one click... not by clicking on the button and then having a reactions popup open) not sure if the reactions popup is useful or not but you could set up a like and a react button both. or do it like fb where you have to perform a special action (holding the button) to see reactions
I'm just getting on here feels very much like Reddit. That isn't necessarily a bad thing I think Reddit is a good platform, but when I started watching Sam Harris and Jordan Person, and many others in the IDW the primary mode of listening was YouTube. With that in mind, I feel that this platform is missing a big advantage that they had when they were funding their videos with Patreon and posting them to Youtube. I believe there needs to be some kind of stream, or headline page video page where your one-click away from videos and new videos from the IDW 'Superstars'. This means you won't have to search to hard for fun things to watch when you're in a hurry, and you can still access threads when you have the time to go to the forum pages and see how deep this rabbit hole goes lol. Combining the best of both worlds may leave you with a stronger site than both, and obviously developing a strong app, but that is a more obvious suggestion.
Hate to say that you should probably look to the big 3 and cherry pick. They are successful for a reason. FB is addictive because your page is steady stream of stimuli...it is very interactive and user friendly. Twitter is much more intellectual...but who can communicate in 160 letters or less?...Oh scratch the "big 3" part...Instagram is just memes for the short attention span theater crowd. Haven't been on long enough to be have a full opinion. But the scrolling of fb with the banter of twitter...without getting banned would be sweet
Hello. I am a Hispanic and agree with the conservatives views that I know. I live in Puerto Rico and lived in 4 different U.S. states. It really hurts me to see how my people are really dependent on the government and the government in here put many impediments for people to be self sufficient. It has turned slowly to a socialist island and people seems to think this is how the rest of the world is. There is no knowledge of what conservative ideas are even though the mayority of the country is Christian and Christianity is very well openly preached on the streets. I have found by talking to people in PR that many believe that the only party that is good is Democratic because if you are not a Democrat, then you don't believe in Democracy. I have found many people in conservative websites, claiming to be conservative that suggest with their comments that minorities are unimportant. I would like to know your opinion about this matter. I believe in less government control and in capitalism, although I agree with social programs that help the less fortunate, but I do not believe in healthy and capable people that are parasitic of others. I am a U.S. veteran and I believe if you served the U.S. country for one whole term, then you should be granted citizenship, but that is not the case, as I have seen with friends when I was in the military. Let me know your opinions as I do like to listen to other views.
As a newcomer,I'm not ready to comment except to say that my first impression is favourable. I am a fan of Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, Sam Harris, and Ayaan Hirsi, although I do not agree with every concept they promote. I look forward to intelligent discussions.
Loving the positivity of the site! And honest discourse. After checking out several sites and being quite disillusioned with the nonsense, negativity... just general intolerance of discussion and varying ideas. This is quite refreshing! Thanks so much for what you do!
I'm a conservative in a liberal state.........challenge. raising 3 grandkids taught to embrace liberalism by their parents, now deceased. I am making up for lost years of influence. I don't want to see my country destroyed by the idea that loving life, loving God, protecting my family and my beliefs makes me an ignorant immoral person to be shunned by the majority. I want my grandkids to understand why i believe as i do, to make their own intelligent decisions and be able to stand when life gets difficult. Ssharing ideas, talking and learning from like minded intelligent individuals that have different experiences and knowledge and feeling free to share my own are the reasons i joined this platform.
Connect with local like-minded conservative, classical liberal, libertarian, independent humanists that believe in The Enlightenment pursuit of the Logos.
Specifically like-minded poisonous individualists that want to join other alumni in pressuring their Alma Mater Presidents into casting out this Anti-Judeo-Christian-Google-Intersectional-Marxist apostasy that’s jumped from University campuses into HR departments.
May God guide my Christian hand against this Global Potpourri!
END THE GLOBALIST CONSPIRACY (left and right).

I work as a special educator in the states. It's an environment where if I were to speak openly about how I view the current political climate, I'd find myself alone. I've been looking around the community, and it's wonderful to see people who are exchanging ideas without fear.
I am grateful for this forum.
Looking forward to reading posts from, & interacting with, like-minded individuals. Really enthusiastic about being able to follow Peterson & Shapiro. The idea of being restricted & censored in my own country is abhorrent to me, so having a place to exercise free speech is very welcome!
