Plato’s Republic

The purpose and aim of the server is to be an environment conducive to intellectual growth and enrichment for our members. We wish to use reason above all else to solve problems and questions, particularly regarding those of politics and philosophy. “Truth" is our highest good and value, and our loyalty ultimately is to the truth only. Thus in Plato's Republic, we seek to use reason and logic to find truth through rigorous thinking that we wish to be as self-aware, self-correcting, self-directed and self-disciplined as humanly possible. We seek to create members who extol objectivity and eschew dogma as that is the first step in becoming a lover of wisdom.

A fair and nondiscriminatory arena
As someone eager to express unconventional views, far removed from hot-topic controversies, I have found this server uniquely welcoming and it has quickly become the only listed political server I can tolerate.

Even more, It's genuinely entertaining almost all of the time, educative most of the time and I've even received constructive assistance and criticism in attempting to elaborate novel statements of my own several times.

Our staff seems committed to encourage a comms vibe that I see growing the server indefinitely if maintained.
If you're looking for a place to pitch your tent in and hope it gets huge along with your exposure, I would genuinely bet on this.
Communicating in good faith is prioritized above overtly literal or ideologically motivated rule sanctioning.
It's the first server of this species, and of this size where I haven't spotted a single instance of enforcement that I could suspect it's attributed to a staff member's sensibilities or ego.

The general chat might be quicker and less formal than in more restricted, specialized communities, but unless it's the occasional genocide olympics team deathmatch hour, the topics explored tend to be more diverse and interesting than the competition's.
Even so, there's highly academic and rigorous atmospheres in the smaller domain rooms.

Presently the clubs are somewhat limited in activity as most have only been established this month but events are really picking up the pace.
All the more reason to join: there's public and participants eager to listen to you, to lecture, to debate, memedesign, play games, to explore art and media. Perhaps you'll encounter your first disciples in your quest to establish a platonic new world order with you as a Philosopher King.

ps : JOIN UP if you're academically or professionally involved with math, physics or natural philosophy in some capacity and have the slightest urge to teach! We have excellent CS and logician contributors, yet I find myself rather lonesome in the domain of scientific inquiry, and there's so many eager learners !

Great place for discussion
Generally nice atmosphere despite the political nature, and rather active. It's neither a leftist nor conservative echo chamber, in part due to the numerous and politically diverse mods.
Outside of the debates and memes, this server has an extensive role system featuring a myriad of political beliefs, philosophies, religions and regions, a question each day to vote upon, a club system (the debate club also runs organized vc debates regularly), a news feed channel and a library.
All in all my go-to for political debates and philosophical discussion.

5/5 would argue about the meta ethics of arguing about meta ethics again

Great community
There's lots of politics but there's otherwise no shortage of different academic topics to discuss. There's no gatekeeping and people are welcoming. There are plenty of active populated channels and it also has a great Voicechat community, and the clubs are always engaging.
