At least it’s funny, 90% of the lefty podcasts I listen to, I have to go back 30 seconds every few minutes because it’s tough to stay engaged. I love Multipolarista but that being said, it’s tough to listen to an hour of it straight. Chapo Traphouse and Deprogram have comedy mixed in, it’s a net-positive imo
It would be a different world for sure, part of so many people’s confidence in the west stems from individuality, unfortunately debt is also individual-based so plenty of people will self-identify with their watch, their jordans, their car, house, etc. bc it’s so visible, it’s like wearing something that says “I don’t have to worry, I’m double well” and obv it’s not always that, I have like 4 pairs of Jordans I barely wear, I worked hard for them and liked them. But debt doesn’t work that same way, we don’t see someone with a nice car with a bumper sticker showing how many thousands they still have to pay for that car. Houses don’t have nice little decor showing how far you are in debt. If people knew, it would probably shake faith in the system, just a little bit
Debt is such a crazy thing in capitalist society. The fact that debt isn’t inherently visible (you can actively see a person experiencing life without a home, struggling through life without food), you can’t see how much someone is struggling financially and scraping to survive, I feel that it warps our idea of how other people get by. The answer is that they kind of don’t in a lot of scenarios, plenty of people die in debt.
I have so much in common in the first part lol, I also work at a union store and unfortunately Idk how much I make lol. Also just gotta say: Walmart can afford to pay workers a bit more now bc 1.) they fired SO MANY cashiers to make room for SCOs(Self-Checkout) 2.) They have such a huge market share. The worker’s rights haven’t changed there
Lemme just say that Halloween’s Irish villain company was hilariously bad. It made no sense, if you’re a company, it makes sense to try to accumulate more and more money, but the company just kills everyone wearing their masks. Very very short-sighted. I mean even if the goal is to sacrifice as many as possible to the Halloween God or whatever, it makes more sense to build a loyal customer base and get it international. But they just kill everyone with the mask. No Michael Mayers in that movie either smh, def the worst Halloween imo, pretty fun to watch w friends tho
Exactly, plenty of people are upset that DPR and LPR requested help from Russia, but truth be told, it’s mostly because they see themselves as Russians and because Russia has a track record for being against Nazis. They definitely would’ve asked the USSR for help if it still existed but it doesn’t so being pragmatic, they sorta need Russia’s response to this.
Realistically Cuba, I speak a bit of Spanish(I would need to seriously brush up) it’s not far from the US so I can visit for holidays, and I love the weather. They do get tropical storms too tho so that may get scary at times. I also grew up playing Basketball and Baseball quite a bit and even took up Boxing at a young age, all of those are very popular in Cuba and I’d love to join pickup games or train some boxing at a local park or gym. Also Miguel Díaz Canel is pretty cool. I remember MSNBC tried to pretend like a rally for him was a protest against Cuba in the midst of Covid. Those idiots literally showed him in the rally.
Listened to First Thought today, apparently the US sanctioned Kosovo with not being allowed to participate in a certain drill and the US ambassador to Kosovo has this to say “ We will cease all efforts to assist Kosovo in gaining recognition from states that have not recognized Kosovo and in the process of integration into international organizations,” said Ambassador Hovenier. Kinda surprising, what do yall think about it
Many left during the Arduous March, aka the horrible DPRK famine caused by a mix of not enough access to global trade of resources and they were not able to supply fertilizer in the amounts necessary. This period is believed to have taken place between roughly 1994-1998. Yeonmi Park, growing up in that period probably had it rough and most likely left in her teens or something. Like loathsome dongeater (lol @ username) said, most likely she smelled a paycheck for giving embellished astounding stories of strife and struggle, all the while ignoring the factors which don’t allow DPRK to develop naturally.
If I had this gun, I would chill in an expensive hotel room in the dark smoking a cigarette until someone enters the door, then I turn on the lights, take a drag from my cigarette and say “I’ve been waiting for you. You’re not an easy man to find, Mr Bond but I’m not an easy man to hide from. gestures with Luger Please, sit, sit. We have much to discuss” then I get betrayed by my assistant who falls for the Anglo and my masterplan is ruined with only 00:7 seconds left on the comically large bomb that kills all of Earth so I would otherwise have been able to fuck space aliens in peace. The last words I hear are a shitty one-liner about how I’m “the bomb .com” before he tosses me in the bomb pit and shuts down my evil website.
Chicago policing has historically been quite bad and racist. Never forget that International Day of Labor(aka May 1, besides the USA which has some random bullshit labor day that isn’t on May 1st, as to avoid international solidarity) was picked for the Haymarket Riots in Chicago. Chicago has a long history of workers rights movements and police brutality suppressing said movements.
Do you really need to raise awareness or try getting support behind Ukraine? It seems like not only does nearly everyone on Earth know about this war, if you’re in an Imperial Core country, then chances are that like 70 percent of the people are pro-Ukraine. So what do they plan on achieving with that little stunt? Attention most likely but even still that’s just pathetic.
So by that logic, as long as non-white people exist, then any and all horrid actions caused by Imperialism and Capitalism are justified 100%. They believe that as long as you look at the current situation, you can judge the inhabitants of that nation for all of its flaws and shortcomings. Example: Look at Afghanistan right now. If we are to believe the OP, then this is solely the fault of Afghan people for being “stupid” or something. Forget all context for why the situation is what it is, just judge it and don’t think twice. How about Ukraine? Are we to believe that the country is friendly to Fascism and they are losing a war because “they’re stupid” or are there bigger factors as play here? God what a dumb fucking post, they really thought that the IQ point was slick
1.) People who get too close/don’t respect personal space. I FUCKING HATE THIS. Like I hate beyond anything else when I have to maneuver around people or squeeze between or even just dumb shit like people walking like within an inch of me around a corner when they have a lot of room to walk. I wish I was more patient but this type of shit genuinely puts a big damper on my mood. 2.) People who are too cocky and loud at the gym, we get it, you’re trying to look fun and extroverted to get girls, nobody’s interested, now get back to exercising and stop hogging the damn benches and squat racks. 3.) Bad drivers, not ones who are slow or something, but ones that refuse to use turn signals, people who speed way too fast, run red lights, etc. 4.) Sweating. I work outside and get drenched in sweat anytime it’s more than like 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Democracy Now(warning, they have on great guests and awful guests) generally good info tho. I like Multipolarista, but so many episodes of it are so similar. Maybe the First Thought channel every now and again. And the best of all is Radio Free Asia, for their jokes and satire. I mean nobody could possibly read that and believe it at face value right? It has to be some 5-D Chess match that’s written by a lefty or something? Please tell me nobody is THAT stupid to believe Radio Free Asia is trying to tell the truth, they’re like a shitty version of the Onion, or an even shittier version of the Babylon Bee
I had a Bosnian muslim friend in HS and middle school. He was hilarious and really smart(but very immature when he wanted to be, which was often lol). He was not a communist but being Balkan, he was anti-US military, anti-interventionist, anti-Imperialist. He also did really really immature stuff at times, but he was a kid. Example, in Middle school, we held a pretend vote for president in our Social Studies class and the students could sorta endorse a candidate and try to convince students why you like them or whatever. I supported Bernie and he supported Trump. I asked him why, he wasn’t a Republican, he said it was funny af to him that he, a muslim, would support Trump while the news was talking about the muslim ban, I didn’t think it was funny particularly, it was kinda fucked up, but he was a troll before all else and tbh knowing him he’d never cast a vote in his life. Other than that, I have a muslim manager and she’s undoubtedly the nicest manager I’ve ever met. Other than that, most of the muslims I know aren’t very religious and barely identify as muslim, they see themselves as Arab before anything else
Good to know, lib propaganda was creeping into my brain lol
