Actually this is really good anti-war, anti-sanctions propaganda. Most people seeing this won’t be like “yeah that makes sense, i am now ok with freezing because they need it more”, they will start to think about the cost their government’s reckless policies are having on their own personal wellbeing. The proportion of people who are willing to put up with personal sacrifices for the cause of some people in another country who don’t even speak their language is a minority, especially in western countries where capitalism has promoted a culture that prioritizes self-interest above all.

This is a message that needs to be seized on more by the anti-war, anti-imperialist forces in the west, because you won’t get many westerners to be against war and sanctions with any moral arguments, their russophobia and liberal indoctrination will make them blind and deaf to those, so sadly you are left with appealing to their selfishness. You have to keep showing that the cost of empire to the average citizen in the imperial core outweighs whatever benefits they may think they get out of it, whether it’s the expectation of a share in the plunder or just a feeling of superiority.

I wouldn’t be so sure. Assuming this is in the UK, people there are literally willing to sacrifice their newborns for Ukraine.

There have already been Brits who went to fight for the Azov, caught, tried, and sentenced to death for war crimes all in less than half a year.

Those people exist but they are a minority. All but the most hardcore fanatics will begin to have more and more second thoughts the worse the economic situation gets for them.

I mean, if they’re cool with getting lined up against the wall in the DPR for the sake of their fascism, I think they wouldn’t mind things getting more expensive. Like, they must have known that capture and death was a very real possibility when they went over to fight, right? And they decided it was okay for them?

Pretty sure some people went to check this and also contacted the billboard owner to confirm that this isn’t actually real. Photoshop job.

That makes me feel better. But the fact that it was so instantly believable says something about our political climate and it’s not good.

Well then someone should work to make it real. It’s good agitprop against the sanctions.

Fortunately, we have fire.

Liberals say a lot of stupid things. Post incidences here.
