Is the political spectrum on SOH more or less extreme than that of the overall population?
More extreme, b/c the people on here are the ones interested enough in politics to be on the app in the first place.
More. Many ordinary people can't tell you much about politics of current events. I find many of the people on here to be more intelligent than your average person. At least more engaged and in tune to the world overall.
Extreme, there are some far right and far left people here, and barely any In the center.
Out of the people I know personally I'd say definitely more extreme. I don't know any Marxists in person
