I feel the same way, comrade. Unfortunately the left is really bad at organizing, and any time we do, the fed labels us terrorists and goes to great lengths to dismantle it. They know we’re a direct threat to capitalism and the status quo. In the past they’ve bombed and executed socialists right here on American soil. If we do organize, it will need to be in a way that they won’t be able to eaves drop. Meaning no talk of it online. Secret meetings, leave our phones at home. But how do we reach out to people and plan meetings without talk of it online?

Wow that’s some content. Not sure who the audience is, but you might want to reconsider your presentation. Basically it comes off like “everyone is an idiot” and doesn’t understand. Also, the original purpose of the inheritance tax was to avoid creating a British like royal system of permanent wealthy-powerful families. Also, tax the rich.

How do you recommend finding IRL socialist communities that are legit and not weird and culty? My experience in college was that the so-called “Marxist” kids were just privileged stoners that believed we all would be saved by AI and cryptocurrency. They approached outreach like recruitment for an MLM, which was weirdly hierarchical. In other words, grifters appropriating appealing leftist language to take advantage of people, like Nazis. Any tips on how to find actual socialist activists and not have to waste a bunch of time sifting through garbage cults? I genuinely want to know since a few Silicon Valley pseudo-socialists left a bad taste in my mouth but I refuse to believe every socialist group is like this.

One of the most important things you can do is build community with your neighbors, and other people in your life. Regardless of political views, make yourself human, and them human before political beliefs. And like someone said above… don’t use buzz words - great place to start is “do you have an extra cup of sugar?”

They make a good point. Western media has became incredibly biased lately. They want the people angry at their enemies, when we should be looking to understand and befriend our neighbors. Even within our country there is so much infighting we have a hard time even comprehending what it’s like to live anywhere else. We’re isolated and only care about what’s right in front of us. If they only admit it wasn’t a rocket from Russia for a single news cycle, most people won’t know it. They’ll remember all the shocking and breaking news that broke the whole rest of the week. Every time I see a news article I have to look up everything in it. Key information is constantly being left out in a clever sort of way. It’s difficult to be informed in the United States. Education is collapsing in value yet they charge us for it more than ever. I’m so glad I can talk to people from around the world on here.

Humans just have an easier time unifying over simplistic ideas. Right-wing movements benefit from the fact that they don't really need to put a lot of thought into a concept to get people rallied. As a BIPOC, I'm sure you recognize that this rallying is usually based in ethnicity or xenophobia. That said, it's hard to get leftists to rally against a broad concept like "the ruling class" because most leftists only got into their political mindset because they prefer to think about social issues in a complex or nuanced way. It's a blessing and a curse since it allows us to deconstruct injustice, but also prevents us from getting unified on issues. If you want to mobilize a lot of people, though, simpler is still better. Most working-class movements are started on the basis of specific and simple goals (i.e. killing a slave master, robbing a factory for food, ending the reign of a specific dictator). That said, the awful drawback to this is that you leave a lot of room for interpretation. Take a look at [The New Black Panther Party](https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/group/new-black-panther-party) and its descent into anti-semitism.

Brazilian here, i can confirm the situation is as bad as it looks. It's even worse ​ Bolsonaro's supporters keep denying this tragedy by claiming the yanomamis came from the "communist Venezuela of Maduro". I don't think i need to enter in details about how ridiculous this statement is. Some are so cruel that they question wether this is real or just a made-up lie of the supposed "communist media" by stating that native-americans are supposed to survive by hunting and fishing so it wouldn't make sense for them to have hunger ​ Bolsonaro left a legacy of desctrution and deaths caused by him not caring about the pandemic (of the 700.000 brazilians who died of covid, about half of them could have survived if Bolsonaro actually acted tried to do something) and caused by the yanomami genocide. Besides he also revitalized the far-right movements who are claiming for a military coup and a fascist dictatorship due to Bolsonaro losing the elections in 2022. Terrible moments

Biden literally said on the very same evening of the revelation of a rocket landing in Poland, that it was likely not a Russian missile. It didn’t take days, and the headline was not small. You can look it up. The official conclusion was made later, but by the following morning the consensus was that it was a Ukrainian rocket. It’s true that in the initial several hours following the rocket’s landing, they said it was a Russian missile but it was fairly quickly concluded otherwise. It’s true they didn’t blame Ukraine for doing it intentionally, but of course they wouldn’t. It’s possible that is what happened but I’ve seen no conclusive evidence of that. Zelensky probably jumped to conclusion’s opportunistically because he’s an insane desperate shitbag

No, that wasn’t the headline for days. Biden literally said the night of the revelation about a missile blast in Poland that it was likely not a Russian missile, due to the trajectory and its range. The initial several hours did say it was a Russian missile but the consensus by the morning was that it was a Ukrainian missile that accidentally fell into Poland. It’s true they didn’t blame Ukraine for doing it intentionally, but I’ve seen no conclusive evidence of that anyway. I thought he just jumped to conclusions and took advantage of it because he’s a desperate shitbag

Summary of the first day : The rally began outside of University of Jaffna, where black flags were hoisted to mark the occasion. A hartal has also been carried out in Jaffna in solidarity with the protesters. The Tamil National Peoples front protested outside of the Jaffna District office calling for the rejection of the 13th amendment and the unitary state. Protestors called Sri Lanka to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). Protesters paid their respects at the Chemmani massacre memorial which was dedicated to Krishanth Kumaraswamy, a Tamil school girl who was raped by Sri Lankan soldiers in 1996. Three of her family members that had gone looking for her were also murdered. Protesters defiantly conned their march from Jaffna towards Batticaloa despite various attempts by Sri Lankan and police to break up the rally. The event ended in Kilinochi in Iranaimadu. For more information of this protest visit Tamil Guardian. Summary of the second day : The North to East march kicked off from Paranthan junction in Kilinochi this morning and hiss head towards Mullaitivu. Plain clothed Sri Lankan police were seen following the procession on motorbikes. The rally at Theravil Thuyilum Illam to pay tribute to those who sacrificed themselves in the armed struggle for liberation. Protesters gathered at the Tamil Genocide memorial in Mullivaikak to remember the tens of thousands of Tamils that were killed by age Sri Lankan state in the final days of the war.

Image Transcription : 1. The image shows a multitude of Tamil people of all ages holding red, yellow flags. The red/yellow colors represent Tamil nationalism. The protesters are also holding placards that say : END THE OCCUPATION, Self-Determination is our right, தமிழர் தாயகத்திற்கு கறுப்பு தினம் (Black Day for the Tamil Homeland), Justice for the Tamil Genocide and from the North to East the Tamil Nation shall rise up. The picture was taken in Jaffna. 2. The image shows Tamil Civil Society Leaders, Religious Leaders, Families of the disappeared and Tamil Students from the University of Jaffna marching through Jaffna during the protest. Notably, the students are dressed in black for marking the Independence Day as a black day. The protesters are holding several placards depicting raised fist in Red/Yellow stating Sri Lanka's Independence = Tamil Genocide, The Tamil Nation is our identity, எப்பொழுது நம் மக்களுக்கு விடுதலை கிடைக்கும் ? 3. The image shows Eelam Tamils marching through the infamous Vaddukaval Bridge in Mullaitivu this was the bridge where many of the Tamil families handed over their loved ones to the Sri Lankan military just to be never seen again. Context : Eelam Tamils have been fighting for over seventy years for self-Determination. Eelam Tamils are a Nation of people living in the merged North and East of Ceylon. They have the right to determine their own destiny.Successive Sri Lankan Sinhala - Buddhist Governments have continuously suppressed the right to self-determination and governing by employing brutal military force to annihilate the Tamil population, which amounts to Genocide. Since 1948 Tamils have been waging non-violent struggle for their rights after successive Sinhala Buddhist Government brutally suppressing those non-violent agitations for almost 4 decades the Tamil youth turned to armed struggle which was suppressed by the Sri Lankan security forces in killing 169,796 Tamils alone within 138 days during the last stages of the war. Several were killed when Sri Lankan armed forces repeatedly bombed and shelled No Fire Zones (Safe Zones). Even Hospitals and food distribution were shelled, thousands of Tamils died of starvation alone. Tamil women are held as sex slaves in Sri Lankan army camps, according to the (ITJP) International Justice and Truth Project. The Northeast of the Island is also one of the militarized places in the world.According to the UN The second-highest number of enforced disappearances in the world is in Sri Lanka which most of them are Tamils. There are over 96,000 Tamil war widows on the island. Tamil Families of the disappeared have now been protesting for almost, 2175 days for justice but with no avail.The Sri Lankan Government has been evicting the Tamils from their homeland, occupying their land and colonizing their Homeland since 1948. Therefore, Tamils have been annually protesting on Sri Lanka's Independence Day for almost 7 decades. The Demands from this year's protest are : Prosecute Sri Lanka before the ICC Have an International investigation on Sri Lanka for the Tamil Genocide Ensure justice for the enforced disappearances Release all Political Prisoners Repeal the (PTA) Prevention of Terrorism act Stop the land grabbing of the Tamil Homeland We reject the Unitary State and the 13th Amendment Eelam Tamils are a distinct nationality and have a right to self-determination The protest started on Feb 4 in Jaffna (North) and will end on Feb 7 in Batticaloa (East). It was organized by the Students from the Northeast Student Union. There is also complete hartal in the Tamil in support of this rally.

Healthcare worker here - totally agree. For profit healthcare is at its core completely unethical. No matter how hard you try, the focus is on profit, at the expense of quality of patient care and the quality of life for healthcare workers.

Biden literally said on the very same evening of the revelation of a rocket landing in Poland, that it was likely not a Russian missile. It didn’t take days, and the headline was not small. You can look it up. The official conclusion was made later, but by the following morning the consensus was that it was a Ukrainian rocket. It’s true that in the initial several hours following the rocket’s landing, they said it was a Russian missile but it was fairly quickly concluded otherwise. It’s true they didn’t blame Ukraine for doing it intentionally, but of course they wouldn’t. It’s possible that is what happened but I’ve seen no conclusive evidence of that. Zelensky probably jumped to conclusion’s opportunistically because he’s an insane desperate shitbag

Friendship shouldn't be determined based on politics alone. If you have other common interests and generally respect each other for having different opinions on politics/world view then that should take precedent. I have a few friends that lean somewhat conservative and some that lean more on moderate liberal lines and sometimes progressive. They respect the fact that I think things should go in a different direction...it's not something that's always discussed constantly either because there's more to everything other than just politics. However... I have relatives that are just full-blown braindead MAGA types... Which was fine early on because things didn't quite as psychotic as they did about 2 years ago and to this day. I can't stand people like this and I try to avoid it if I can because it's just not worth my time trying to associate with people that just do nothing but talk about that bullshit 24/7.

Transcript for those who use a screenreader. But first the "too long; didn't read": Reza Pahlavi calls for people in solidarity with the Iranian protesters to let their voices be heard. Look out for demonstrations near you. ​ My dear compatriots, Across the world. many of you are preparing to participate in the rallies and marches planned for February 11th, to call again on the international community to support the Iranian revolution. With your commitment, this revolution, which began nearly five months ago in the name of Mahsa, and for Women, Life, and Freedom, will continue undeterred in its path to bring an end to the forty-four years of oppression and misery brought upon our Iran by the calamitous events of 1979. I invite all of you. my compatriots, to make this year's February 11th the the most inspiring day on the calendar of the Iranian national revolution and, with even greater solidarity and unity, to convert further support and energy to our compatriots inside Iran. My request to you is that, while recognizing and respecting your differences of opinion, you focus on your points of commonality and, side-by-side and hand-in-hand, offer a single and strong voice in support of the Iranian revolution to the media, societies, and politicians in your countries. Whatever group or faction you belong to. left or right. republican or monarchist. for or against me personally. I ask that you do not insult or disrespect one another. Especially if you are holding the national flag of Iran (the Lion & Sun), respect and honor its sanctity, and be a messenger of unity, respect, tolerance, and all the good values that our country's flag represents. Long live Iran, Reza Pahlavi

I admit, I may have oversimplified the title, but I couldn't think of anything better at the time. However, the bigger picture is that there is a much greater wealth disparity between the 90th percentile and the billionaires than between the 90th percentile and the poorest member of the working class. In other words, while there may be meritocracy to some degree that allows one to secure a more prestigious job, you need privilege, connections and luck to reach billionaire status, thus disproving the myth used by some to justify the wealth of billionaires on grounds of superior intellect.

Red Salute Comrade, I wholeheartedly agree with your points. It is important to approach discussions and debates with clarity, logic, and respect. As a Marxist, it is essential to present our ideas and beliefs in a way that is persuasive and convincing to others. The use of profanity and fallacies only weakens our argument and detracts from the core message. It is better to stay silent and gather more knowledge than to resort to unprofessional behavior. Your emphasis on the need for sources and logical reasoning is commendable. Let us continue to strive for excellence in our arguments and spread the Marxist ideology in a manner that is respectful and impactful.

Russia's strategy in this war relied on leveraging Nord Stream to compel the EU to drop their support for Ukraine. Part of America's motive in this war is to destroy Russia's economic relationship with the EU by ending European reliance on Russian natural gas. The destruction of the pipeline harms Russia and benefits America. It's simple *cui bono*.

>I think it's fair to say online arguments do matter. Not to the person you're arguing with, but to anyone who might see that argument This\^\^ My perspective is also anecdotal but as a content creator I've noticed that not only does past discourse engage others who find my channel that way, but I've had plenty of people reach out to me and verify my conversations with others on YouTube (often debates that go south) have helped them in some way. It doesn't happen that often I'll admit, but it does happen, and most of my debating online is done with future readers in mind.

Also looked it up. The bill is basically, by *implication* "some dictators \[you know who\] did bad stuff in the name of 'socialism', so let's make sure billionaires will be protected to keep doing bad stuff" - almost surely including strongly protecting continued attempts to privatize things around the world even against the deep-culture property relations of communal cultures who lived for centuries before colonialism in ways that to even remotely call a "dictatorship" would be utterly laughable.

I am vehemently against the idea of debate or online arguments not mattering. The person you are directly arguing with will never come to your side, at least not immediately. But the passing by audience, even those in opposition easily could. Plus, I think it is always good to be able to defend your beliefs and evolve them over time. The above is particularly true for those engaged in reactionary styled thinking. They love the bloodsport of debate and the other side getting embarrassed. If that happens to their representatives it resonates greatly. The right recognizes this and is very very effective at online discourse by injecting politics into the culture war. Anecdotally I can attest to this. I was once a strongly anti-SJW/feminist libertarian. It was through watching those I consumed so much content on being publicly embarrassed in debate that began to pull me out of being a full on alt-righter. I was radicalized leftward in early 2016 with the Syrian refugee crisis/civil war coupled with Brexit and the rise of Trump. Not everyone needs to battle in argument and debate, but it is 100% an avenue we need to continue using.

Russia has already shown they are willing to shoot themselves in the foot to the tune of hundreds of billions in the service of this war of conquest. You think a pipeline is a line they won’t cross? The pipeline was already turned off, Russia was gaining nothing from it. Why not blow it up and say it was the evil US that did it. Every single vatnik account has been working overtime trying to use it as a propaganda to divide NATO, so you can’t say there’s no value in Russia blowing it up. The US statements are obviously referring to shutting it down manually, which was already done long ago when Russia started this war of aggression. Blowing up a nonfunctional pipeline (which even if active would provide less than 10% of Europe’s fuels) as a simple middle finger doesn’t make a whole lot of sense

I think you make some really good points, however its important to keep in mind that what you have mentioned only works - at least online - where there IS an open discussion. No matter how logical or well read you are, or how many sources you have, all of that will be for nothing when engaging with someone who is not interested in learning or having their viewpoint changed. Trolls come into our spaces all the time, and going into their spaces will get you silenced pretty quickly, which becomes pointless. Also, these people don't know you, so they are less likely to take your opinion seriously. They just believe we are brainwashed by propaganda (which is ironic). You would have an easier time chabging the minds of those who know you personally - if you are comfortable doing so. Another issue is the language we use. A lot of the terms in Marxist works are outdated in their meaning or used exclusively in Marxist theory - e.g., proletariat, bourgeoisie, dictatorship of x, or personal vs private property. Additionally, some words raise alarms for some people - e.g., socialism, communism, or proletariat. We need to adjust the way we speak to those who aren't fully aware, don't understand, or are just "scared" of certain terms. Finally, what I do is save comments, posts, and other sources from those that are more knowledgeable than me or can explain things better. Then you can just send it to the person you are discussing with. I've done this for democracy/elections under socialism with an essay on the topic of election in North Korea. I have a comment saved that explains why China IS a socialist country and will use that when the issue comes up. Those are just two examples. If the person is actually interested, then they will read what you send through, and you dont have to spend time writing up an essay or stressing about remembering tonnes of sources. The most important thing that we do is to organise politically and at work, if it is possible and safe to do so. We also need to make sure we are well read or we're not well equipped to discuss with those willing to listen. This could be reading books/essays, listening to an audiobook, watching a video from a leftist content creator, or listening to a podcast.

Russia was weak in the 90s, so they can't do anything. Now they are stronger so naturally they fight back. Either nato back down, or Russia wreck Ukraine until nothing left. Poland is next. If Russia invade Poland, nato can't do anything. Russia won't invade unless they know for sure they can win. FYI, if Russia nuke Germany, rest of nato will just scream like a little girl. Americans, UK and French isn't gonna eat nuke for Germany. This is the reality of the matter. Nato is worthless. The reality of great power. Nukes means absolute survival.

It's true they're not doing it for macroeconomic reasons but it may be reductive to say it's pure lust for power. It's also strategic.

Agreed, it seems to me as though some of our comrades think they are more intelligent than other people because they have become aware of the world from a vastly different perspective. Very simply, if you cannot debate civilly, you will do more harm than good to our cause. Especially when debating neo-liberals who actively support the ‘violence is never the answer’ policy that ironically, nearly always leads to violence because peaceful protests are ignored. This should also apply when debating other comrades on their views, which is well outlined in this video, which if you have not seen is worth watching. https://youtu.be/pGnqc5YfgDk

censorship is disallowing someone from speaking or something from being said. not platforming is saying "I don't want to host this on my platform." it doesn't imply that you'd disallow them from speaking their piece elsewhere. there's certainly overlap between those things, but they're not the same thing, it's on you if you're unable to distinguish the nuance there.

Because you fuckin morons are hyper focusing on a private citizen’s campaign for President rather than the actual literal sitting president (the literal federal government, since I need to spell it out for you) reaching out to twitter to suppress stories. Somehow, y’all think the private citizens actions are more important to focus on than the governments suppression of speech. Kinda weird.

It sounds less like you actually like the series, and more like you're attached to the things you liked when you didn't have the understanding you currently do, and/or the things you've made out of it. I think it's important to acknowledge the difference there. But also, respect for being open to criticism and talking about it and being receptive! I'd really encourage exploring other fantasy veins, Brandon Sanderson is a good step up from JK, or Paolini's *Eragon*, or Bardugo's *Shadow and Bone* / *Six of Crows*. Lots of alternatives with much less questionable influence and outright nasty themes.

There is no ethical consumption under capitalism. Not a damn thing you consume is going to be from a just position. It is a video game, just like any other video game it is probably going to be full of stupid propaganda elements just like any other movie, tv show or video game. Morality of video games are the dumbest thing to me. In a video game I'm free to be whatever i wish because its just fantasy. Also a lot of JK Rowlings creations are based on already produced stereotypes from fantasy. Things like dungeons and dragons already had goblins that look like Nazi Jewish propaganda. The fact she added a star of David to the movies inside the goblin bank never bothered the vast majority of people until she decided to step out of line and piss off a bunch of liberals who think its the end of the world that she has a stupid opinion. IF your goal is to truly boycott anything that has come from any person who hold a shit opinion you are in for a very dull time my friend. Life is short and until people are out there fighting the good fight gun in hand we are stuck slowly organizing, teaching, and learning. What we do to find some minor joy in this life while we wait for the other parts of mankind to wake up is only between you,yourself and whatever deity you may or may not believe in.

I hate the American military industrial complex and really wish we could use that money for just about anything else. That being said we are sending old hardware that has already been replaced to Ukraine.This has no effect on our current projected military spending as alot of times officials in the military don't get a say in how many Abrams tanks are produced etc, thats congress's job and they can choose to ignore suggestions. The military actually once suggested to ramp down the production of Abrams tanks, but that was ignored to keep producing at its current pace because jobs would have been lost in districts that are involved in thier manufacturing. I mean if we have all this hardware that is not long for the military boneyard why not give it to Ukraine. I really cant think of a better outcome to be honest, and mabye that'll mean less small town police forces get thier own MRAP.

As your perspective deepens and diverges from certain norms, you will develop the ability to appreciate parts of something, without the angst you're having right now. Engage with these things and understand them- what was the author thinking (or were they)? You're going to start to understand the 'conservatives' and 'liberals' etc better than they understand themselves. This just takes practice! There are going to be a lot of 'They Live' moments, where you find sudden clarity that 'normal' things few question are actually *terrible* and un-necessary, let alone good. You will feel like the only sane person in the asylum- that is perfectly natural. Don't panic! Of course it stings realizing something that helped form who you are, that was and is important to you, is riddled with the same derpyness as the author. Authors are humans, and are typically not aware of their own stupidity. Rowling is not some expert on economic systems, sociology, or any other such thing. The world she made is neat, but that's because of the energy *you* put into it. It is OK to love the parts of it you love. Lean into that world and make it better with your perspective- live your values as you interact with it. Also- you might feel like you need to shout at everyone to make them understand that Butterbeer is brewed in sweatshops or whatever, but chill. This is also normal, but being a party pooper, nobody will want to listen to you. They will feel like you've knocked on their door with some religion stuff, because they don't know that they don't know, y'know? Show, don't tell. Act, don't yap.

I mean frankly I don't see how you can separate the inherent racist and imperialist values present in the series from any other appreciation of the media. Given it's got an entire plotline dedicated to the mockery of slavery abolishment, the antisemitic caricatures of the goblins bank having a Star of David in the floor tiles, the lead black character having the last name Shacklebolt, the only Asian character being named Cho Chang, the Iriah character being dismissed as "loves making things blow up", I just don't see it. Beyond that, it's just poorly written, with multiple plot holes; the fact that there is both time travel and a potion that makes people speak the absolute truth destroys 99% of the conflicts in the series, outside of the violence. A genuine question without any malice, how do you do that? I know there's a lot of fun and childlike freedoms associated with it, it's a staple Christmas series for most families, but that's available in a litany of other series produced by objectively kinder people at a standard that's much higher than anything Rowling has produced.

You can still enjoy fiction that brings you joy because of the characters and mise en scene without being a hypocrite. Denouncing the authors views as a person while still enjoying the writing doesn't make you a bad person, it makes you a reflective individual and demonstrates that you have the ability to be critical but also not allow an ideology to define you and police what you enjoy. I consider myself a leftist and a socially progressive person. I still enjoy Call of Duty, and think that Louis CK produced an incredible TV show. I'm aware that CoD is shitty military propaganda at best, and that Louis abused his power in a super gross way. Doesn't mean that I can't enjoy playing CoD with my buddies or appreciate the writing in *Louie*. We are multitudes, comrade. Don't sweat it. Is the author a shitty TERF? Yep. Is the HP series an important part of how a generation came to understand the power of fiction? Yep. Not every thought or opinion we have needs to be in line with a political theory. Don't sweat it.

Yes, by definition fascism believes in the natural social hierarchy, but Stalin ticked every other box for it(dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation) and so he goes down in history like Mao, a totalitarian dictator, often put under the label of red fascism. Gulags, The Great Purge, The NKVD, I’m not sure what else you need. We can acknowledge the values in their history without accepting the mistakes that came from trying to build an economy from scratch. Marx even believed productive capacity should first be built under capitalism, and then later taken by the workers via revolt. Call this leftist infighting, but leftist infighting is necessary and is the only way the revolution doesn’t end in a dictatorship again. We need to be smarter.

Stalin killed more than hitler, and forever cast a foul name on communism (even though the system he implemented was closer to fascism). He ruined a chance at uniting the world under real communism and set the movement back a few hundred years. Yes he killed nazis, but he also killed a lot of Jews. Stalin forever tainted a movement that could have created true utopia.

He orchestrated the genocide of Ukrainians during the holodomor. He led a regime of terror and totalitarianism. He executed anyone who posed a threat to him so that he could continue to dominate the Russian people. He did not follow the words of Marx in any way. He was a dictator and a tyrant. Stalin was not driven by ideology, but power And yes, the USSR claimed to be communist. The leading party was named the Communist Party

Well, maybe he didn’t make it the forefront of his regime, but “The regime maintained its political power by means of the secret police, propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, personality cultism, restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, political purges and persecution of specific groups of people.” From a Wikipedia article with many many reliable sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_the_Soviet_Union sounds a lot like fascism to me

He means neither of them were either of those. The Nazis claimed to be socialist despite being an authoritarian capitalist state. The USSR claimed to be communist despite being authoritarian. Regardless of how they viewed communism, Stalin was a fascist just as hitler was.

Provided ordnance goods (ammunition, artillery shells, mines, assorted explosives) amounted to 53 percent of total domestic consumption.[35] One item typical of many was a tire plant that was lifted bodily from the Ford Company's River Rouge Plant and transferred to the USSR. The 1947 money value of the supplies and services amounted to about $11 billion.[65]"

Yes, by definition fascism believes in the natural social hierarchy, but Stalin ticked every other box for it(dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation) and so he goes down in history like Mao, a totalitarian dictator, often put under the label of red fascism. Gulags, The Great Purge, The NKVD, I’m not sure what else you need. We can acknowledge the values in their history without accepting the mistakes that came from trying to build an economy from scratch. Marx even believed productive capacity should first be built under capitalism, and then later taken by the workers via revolt. Call this leftist infighting, but leftist infighting is necessary and is the only way the revolution doesn’t end in a dictatorship again. We need to be smarter.

I hate the American military industrial complex and really wish we could use that money for just about anything else. That being said we are sending old hardware that has already been replaced to Ukraine.This has no effect on our current projected military spending as alot of times officials in the military don't get a say in how many Abrams tanks are produced etc, thats congress's job and they can choose to ignore suggestions. The military actually once suggested to ramp down the production of Abrams tanks, but that was ignored to keep producing at its current pace because jobs would have been lost in districts that are involved in thier manufacturing. I mean if we have all this hardware that is not long for the military boneyard why not give it to Ukraine. I really cant think of a better outcome to be honest, and mabye that'll mean less small town police forces get thier own MRAP.

Something to add is that no real warfare was seen until the invasion of Poland. Austria was annexed without war, same with the czechs, and something to clear up is that Germany is positioned geologically perfect to invade France, since there’s a large flat area to Frances north that Germany can easily invade through. Part of why Hitler did so well is that France thought it would be the same as WW1 and they’d try to enter through the maginot line, but Hitler invaded the Netherlands and Belgium to enter France and the speed caught everyone off guard. So trade continuing wasn’t really like the Soviets were supporting them, which most countries still continued trade to some extent , so the Soviets weren’t really the outliers. it’s just that they didn’t know Hitlers plans, since Hitler engaged in no formal warfare and stated only that he wanted to unite German speaking lands so most were hoping he’d annex Austria and parts of Czechoslovakia and that’d be it.

See, that's not really the case, because the discussion with the Nazis was happening at the same time as discussions with UK and France. The nuance here is that Poland blocked an agreement USSR proposed because Stalin wanted to station troops in Poland, and this was just after the campaign of ethnic cleansing of Poles a few years earlier. Poland didn't trust the Soviets to station their troops there. Later, the USSR didn't want to agree with UK and France to respect Poland's independence without having a military agreement with both countries, so another attempt at an agreement failed. This, on top of the fact that Stalin ended up co-invading Poland in 1939 and the Baltics in 1940 (supported by the clear definition of spheres of interest in the R-P pact), and provided the Nazis with a huge amount of resources to fuel the war (without which the Nazis would not survive), the argument that the Soviets were "buying time" is difficult to sell.

Like I said, there was ethnic cleansing of Poles before and after 1939. I am not surprised that Poles did not trust the USSR. We can of course theorize what would have happened if Poland allowed the Red Army to enter Poland, whether that would have been beneficial, but we can't forgive the Soviets the fact that they did aid the Nazis a lot in their invasion.

Again, hadn't the Soviets provided the Nazis with materials and resources, the Nazis wouldn't be able to sustain their invasion of Poland and later invasion of France.

No but the original point is still the case in fact Molotov was politically hurt after he negotiated the agreement, this just wasn’t a “Soviet-Nazi alliance”. the Nazis we’re going to invade anyways since the Danzig was taken after WW1, so it was in the Soviets best interest to move the front further west. See there’s important context in a very complex political situation, the Soviets weren’t perfect and they weren’t perfect strategists so they made huge mistakes. But this invasion inadvertently saved millions of Jews from the gas chambers.

That's because Socialism has little to do with what Communism ended up being in practice, and nothing to do with the Soviet Union. And the fact that *some* socialists praise the USSR, or try to bridge the gap between the ideology and a borderline fascist and imperialist regime like the USSR, might make the political belief look rather bad in not just the eyes of the direct opposition, but also centrists and undecided voters. Fascism is already looked negatively upon by every group on the political spectrum except one, fascists. Also, pretend socialists? That's just Americans thinking tax-based education and healthcare systems, or what the nordic countries have, is socialism and not a regular mixed economy with a heavier state emphasis on fundamental institutions like those mentioned.

Lots of reasons: (1) Working class organizations have been thoroughly destroyed by neoliberalism. (2) The anti-communist purges in the labor unions that happened in the first half of the 20th century ensured that the working class would be led by opportunists and less class conscious but well intentioned people. (3) The American government props up a large enough petty bourgeoisie and labor aristocracy to ensure that it has a sufficient base of support to keep the working masses oppressed and docile through a combination of manipulative inter-personal relationships with these petty bourgeoisie and labor aristocrats (a worker with a close friend in the bourgeoisie is going to be harder to radicalize against the bourgeoisie than a worker who's never met an owner a day in his life), and economic incentives. (4) People (particularly white working class people) are thoroughly indoctrinated to believe that they can be part of the bourgeoisie if they work hard enough. And until the last few decades, this has been mostly true; most white working class men could amass a large enough fortune over the course of their careers to start businesses and retire and live off the surplus generated by less fortunate workers (mostly from oppressed minority groups and the global south). This is no longer possible, but the *culture* of it still exists (the same way the *culture* of fighting back and of revolution means objectively better off French workers get far more pissed off at attacks on their quality of life than their less well off American counterparts). (5) Workers aren't dumb; most of them intuitively know that the government serves a group of people who aren't them, and that this group of people is responsible for the problems of the world. But because they don't have class consciousness and no communist orgs are strong enough to take a decisive leading role in the struggle to educate the masses, they are super susceptible to "false consciousness" - when the ruling class subs in a minority or some other group of "undesirables" and starts spreading propaganda about that in order to distract people from the ruling class's causal role in the problems. The essence of fascism is the ruling class trying to convince the workers that some other group of workers is actually the problem, instead of the capitalists and capitalism. (6) The workers also know that, conflict with this group of elites could lead to conflict with the government and thus imprisonment or worse at the hands of that government, and conditions for most workers aren't bad enough yet to make the risk/reward calculation come up in favor of fighting back. (7) The media has been tirelessly trying to de-politicize the working class (to the extent that "being political" is frowned on in almost every context). (8) Organizing is hard. You need to build a web of strong social connections built on trust, and you need to turn this web of social connections into tangible working class political activity.

As long as we can’t collect any information by ourselves, or by reliable reporters, we’re at the mercy of the US government’s questionable honesty on the ‘’facts’’. This happens with a lot of information we receive. Information coming from only 1 source that you pretty much can’t verify. Civilisation is still based on trust,even though it has been abused numerous times. People think, just because we live in the Information age, we somehow got a way to confirm data and facts, which isn’t always true. That doesn’t mean we should go on creating conspiracy theories, it just means that some things will always remain unanswered.

That's because Socialism has little to do with what Communism ended up being in practice, and nothing to do with the Soviet Union. And the fact that *some* socialists praise the USSR, or try to bridge the gap between the ideology and a borderline fascist and imperialist regime like the USSR, might make the political belief look rather bad in not just the eyes of the direct opposition, but also centrists and undecided voters. Fascism is already looked negatively upon by every group on the political spectrum except one, fascists. Also, pretend socialists? That's just Americans thinking tax-based education and healthcare systems, or what the nordic countries have, is socialism and not a regular mixed economy with a heavier state emphasis on fundamental institutions like those mentioned.

[...estimates of the numbers of German women raped by Soviet soldiers have ranged up to 2 million.](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Germany) US troops are estimated to have raped over 10k German women as well.

He orchestrated the genocide of Ukrainians during the holodomor. He led a regime of terror and totalitarianism. He executed anyone who posed a threat to him so that he could continue to dominate the Russian people. He did not follow the words of Marx in any way. He was a dictator and a tyrant.

Stalin killed more than hitler, and forever cast a foul name on communism (even though the system he implemented was closer to fascism). He ruined a chance at uniting the world under real communism and set the movement back a few hundred years. Yes he killed nazis, but he also killed a lot of Jews. Stalin forever tainted a movement that could have created true utopia.

Well, maybe he didn’t make it the forefront of his regime, but “The regime maintained its political power by means of the secret police, propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, personality cultism, restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, political purges and persecution of specific groups of people.” From a Wikipedia article with many many reliable sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_the_Soviet_Union sounds a lot like fascism to me

Because it's not real? There is no invisible hand. Capitalists will always work in their own self interest first and it's in their self interest to eliminate all competition. Look at standard oil back in the early 1900s they would come into new territory under-cut all local competition and then immediately raise prices once they had destroyed all possible competitors. There is no invisible hand just the not so hidden will of capitalists.

Lol stalinist. You mean a government that is popular for doing things that the working people want? You mean not strictly following academic lines of reasoning but allowing the working class to have their say in the government to grow into a mature society with structures which develop according to materialist laws instead of conforming to your view of how it should? A "stalinist" government as you name it is almost always one where the leader and party are lightning rods of the people, where the people say they need things to happen and the leaders are able to direct all of the energy/incentive structures in one direction. Sometimes that's not the perfect decision, but it is almost always a culmination of a whole class's given desires and structural needs

This. Everyone has been turned into individuals with no viable later native. Everyone's worrying about where the next paycheck comes from to keep the roof over their heads to organise, and even if they do, what chance do they have? I went to a union meeting recently where the union proved that a multi billion dollar start up was constantly breaking Labour laws and business laws and committing blatantly illegal anti union action, and the government representatives response was, "Yeah sorry, the laws are outdated and we are in coalition with a pro business party who won't open up the Labour laws..." What options do you have left when you're 1 paycheck away from homelessness or forever debt, and even the unions can't stop your employer from turning you into another Amazon cog clone? They prey on that desperation and submission out of necessity. Don't worry, I will continue to work with this union and will be _doing some of my own disruption_ in the meantime

Mining is a big problem across the Philippines, it not only destroy the environment but it also displace people. In the south, Indigenous People are the ones who are often displaced out of their ancestral lands. One of the reason for the heavy presence of communists in the south is because of that situation. The case for Romblon is different, there are no armed groups to carry retaliation against the mining corporations, thus they are bolder in carrying out actions like that.

I have family that lived in socialist/communist countries. My dad fought in the Soviet army. He left and started a business here with my brother. His life now is better than it ever would have been there and better that 99% of Americans as well. He manages about 200 employees and makes maybe 20M a year. And he did it while barely knowing English. If you don't like America or capitalism, what is stopping you from moving to somewhere that aligns more with your values? Seriously. If you don't like being a 1% lapdog why don't you go off grid or join a commune? It's on you for not moving towards the life you want in a world where you can buy a flight ticket and leave. America is one of the most capitalistic countries out there. It's not going to change.

Lotta people's identities are directly tied to the idea of their relative social status and the pride of being "above" someone in whatever nebulous, uncertain way and the things they feel that implies about their character. They've been taught that virtue is rewarded with success and therefore if they have success they must have been virtuous and if someone else didn't succeed, that person must have lacked some important virtue. Never mind any statistics that say your choices have little to do with your ultimate financial strata and the circumstances of your birth are almost one-to-one with where you'll end up. Nah, it's all personal responsibility.

I mean they've been fed bullshit their whole lives about "the middle class" and personal responsibility and some fabled "ideal market" that complex forces are interfering with and that's why recessions and suffering. Takes ages to educate someone who's willing, and most people aren't. They don't wanna know that their interess are functionally the same as "the poors". They've worked hard to get where they are and if other people haven't had the same success they should have done *something* better. They don't wanna know that the market encourages paying workers less and also demands that those workers spend more, and the overproduction inherent in that mechanic directly drives the boom and bust cycle that cost their grandpa the family home. Class consciousness is usually the easiest thing to start with, as long as you don't say bourgeoisie or proletariat and just talk about lazy rich people living off your paycheck. Often easiest to talk about their immediate boss.

There is a difference between a fascistic & conspirational trucker protest and a progressive protest. Medias will tell you there are both “violent” or invent anything to picture them as the same people, but you truly need to search the reason why the protesters are there to differentiate them.

I think the problem is that you’re incapable of logical thought as you support an ideology that has billions of bodies under its belt as a ‘proof of concept’. I think your prefrontal cortex is collapsed and there is no reason for anyone with a working brain to engage in discourse with someone like you because you deny genocide on the magnitude of a holocaust denier x200 easily. Does that make sense? What if neither ideologies work? That would be a wild conclusion wouldn’t it.

Exactly. And it wasn't really unconstitutional, there are constitutional grounds to dissolve congress when it is acting like that (obstructionist) even under the neoliberal/fascist Fujimori constitution. In practice it is usually judges who decide what is constitutional, and they can be corrupted in Peru in the same manner that congress always is. This time it was the security forces who decided who to side with - Castillo or Congress. Funny, the meeting that took place between US ambassador ('former' CIA agent) and minister of defence shortly before the coup that overthrew Castillo.

Elections without the formation of a constitutional assembly... what is the point? It is funny how this is covered in mainstream/western media. The protesters want Boluarte out, the corrupt antidemocratic congress out, and to start the process to get a new constitution ASAP because under the current Fujimori constitution Peru cannot be sovereign (cannot nationalize or even properly regulate foreign companies e.g. mining companies) and cannot be democratic (cannot redistribute wealth effectively, and what is democracy in a country like Peru if nog Rule of The Poor by The Poor and for The Poor?) Meanwhile we just hear about early elections. Why not just put Castillo back then? He just won elections, his mandate isn't over. Even if the left wons again and get someone slightly more effective than Castillo they will be right back where they started, with another corrupt and intransigent congress and the same Washington-approved constitution preventing meaningful progress.

A leftist president was elected with overwhelming popular support from the more rural parts of Peru, particularly indigenous communities. The opposition party controls Congress and thus was unwilling to cooperate on any of his legislative initiatives (a very common issue in Peruvian politics, from what I hear). Because of this, the president tried to use an emergency constitutional power to dissolve the Congress. That action led to his impeachment and removal from office. His vice president took over and, even though she ran the same ticket as him, she has been much more cooperative with the right leaning opposition party. Now the people who elected the left-leaning president are demanding new elections because they are not happy with the direction the vice president now president and congress want to take things. If anybody has any corrections or wants to add anything on to that, feel free.

Part of the answer is that our mass media, which sells itself as working to help and inform people, is actually working, as Chomsky put it, to manufacture consent for the ruling elite. Our "objective" media is actually a tool for the oligarchs. This is a major reason why change is so difficult. The wealthy own the media, the wealthy own production and the wealthy have bought many of our political leaders and corrupted our government. Another reason is that enough of our citizens are sufficiently comfortable with their standard of living that protest is tamped down. Our owners fully recall the 1930's when jobless Americans filled the streets and it ushered in FDR and the new deal. The new deal convinced elites they had to control both parties not just the Republicans. It will take a major cataclysmic event to generate the change we need. It's probably coming but it may be too late and it won't be pretty.

Again, you agreed on the price of your work and you got what was promised. No stealing there. And no, you still did not add full 2000. Product would be worthless if you made it and left it on th shelf. Organization and marketing come into its price too, as well as initial investements and other things typically done by employer. Another problem is that you do not seem to understand that profit is not something evil. You want profit too. You are going to work because you get something in return that is of greater value then what you inputted. Otherwise you would not be going there. You are profiting from the arangemet. Maybe more, maybe less, but that depends on what deal you made and how valuable your input is. Regardless, you profit from your input, and there is no reason why employer should not profit from his input. Yet you still want him to give all the profit to you, instead of splitting it. That is far from fair approach. "If the workers themselves owned the business and the means of production, they would split the money evenly and make executive decisions democratically." - ok, no problem with that. So called coops do exist. You can join one, or gather likeminded people and start one, there is nothing systemic stopping you or others. You do have a choice in curret system. You do not in socialism, and that is a problem. Surely you can see that system with less choice is the one more attuned for exploitation?
