Listen and believe

Listen and believe is the idea that left-wingers lower on the Progressive Stack will always accept worldviews from their superiors unquestioningly and without any evidence but the speaker's word. While some cases can be trawled up of people actually trying this tactic, the alt-right acts as though this the sole basis of everything the left thinks. Ironically enough, the alt-right itself – which seeks to encourage strict societal roles and often opposes democracy itself – comes closer to enforcing this idea than the often-horizontally-organized left. The precise phrase is based on an Anita Sarkeesian quote taken out of context, and thus a reminder of the overlap between the alt-right and Gamergate.
