Hello, there, comrades! I made a new, more casual PeerTube channel (some of you might have seen some of these videos), and would love it if you joined me there…


Thank you for your input and formatting suggestions!


The time has come for us to talk about human aggressiveness. If you do not appreciate the gnomes, they’ll take you you-know-where because you are the enemy of gnomes. Read the text here: https://write.as/peace-labor-may/is-aggressiveness-inherent-to-humans


Breaking out of the cycle of shame and guilt, beginning to practice mutual aid - what have I personally gained from learning leftist ideology? Read the text here: https://write.as/peace-labor-may/the-more-i-learn-about-capitalism-and-communism-the-easier-it-is-for-me-to


Finally, I am finishing my talking about the just world hypothesis! Just kidding! I will keep talking about it…


Thanks! My second shot of the vaccine is coming soon ಥ‿ಥ


Not any time soon, our cases are rising daily ಥ_ಥ



Thank you for a great reminder, comrade!


The mountains. The trees planted by our great grandparents. The endless steppes. Squirrels that are fat and brave because everyone loves them and feeds them. Fresh produce, local and from our neighbors.


Let me present you with a few of my ponderings on the myth of meritocracy. If you do not appreciate my choice of gifs and emojis, I proclaim you the enemy of the people…


Why put emphasis on mental health and consider it crucial to any leftist movement?

I assert that addressing mental health issues, specifically, for communists, is essential due to the following three reasons: …


Also, the so called inclusivity campaigns aren’t promoting the rights of the oppressed per se; they more often than not appear to be a theatrical attempt to lure in more confused support for the status quo. The divine right for a self-centred existence - well said 😂



In this video, I am going over the basics of equality of outcome, equality of opportunity and luck egalitarianism. Please let me know what your thoughts on equality are…


This is dark satire. The theme is xenophobia.




Not yet :) I was planning to catch up on reading in spring, so, hopefully, soon.


This. It’s easy to slip into the just world hypothesis with many self-help methods. Whilst taking responsibility for one’s own choices and actions is necessary, it is also crucial to examine the outside world through a lens of class antagonism. My firm belief is that no lasting change to one’s individual struggles is possible without the major shift in the social paradigm. It is especially important for the marginalized to recognize - the “pull yourself up by bootstraps” narrative needs to die. Nothing has helped me more than the good old dialectical materialism in terms of self-improvement and meaningful change to my day-to-day life. But Marx and Lenin are not very marketable to the self-help industry, are they?



There are mishaps in the sound at times. I tried rerecording a couple of times, but couldn’t quite capture the mood. I ordered a simple mic; hopefully, there will be an improvement in the sound quality in my videos soon…


I am trying something new, comrades! I’m calling it leftist ASMR. Let me know what you think. Read the text here: https://write.as/peace-labor-may/bitterness-has-settled-itself-rather-comfortably-in-our-midst-nowadays

Hello, there, dear comrades! I am not fond of the aforementioned source myself, but…



In this video, I am using Ursula K. Le Guin’s short story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” to illustrate some elements of imperialism…


In this video, I briefly summarise three ways in which zen buddhism and leftist theory have given me perspective on commodification of myself and the modern society…


Thank you so much for sharing. It is touching to hear Sensei speak on behalf of the disabled. I do find the feats artificial intelligence has been displaying fascinating, though.



In this video, I touch upon some widespread misconceptions concerning female empowerment. …


In this video, I advertise Erich Fromm and his books by going over a simplified view of humanistic psychoanalysis…


Thank you for your thoughtful response!


In this video, I present a few of my favorite theses from Kropotkin’s essay/lecture Anarchist Morality, and some of my thoughts concerning them. The flow is a bit incoherent, because I didn’t take notes :P I hope I’ve sold you the essay, it’s a brilliant read. …


Thank you for sharing this powerful quote!
