Finally someone made a video about it, I stopped following that channel after my science feed got filled with corporate ads disguised as educational videos.



Don’t. Didn’t he delete them for privacy reasons?


Neoliberal polices doesn’t challenge capitalism it extends it. Environmental policies directly challenges capitalism how is this comparable?


OK let me try to make this clear:

The system is the root cause of the climate crisis.

We are not going to solve the crisis by clinging to a system that breeds consumerism, generates shit load of waste and fantasizes infinite growth.

As I said, changing how you behave is much less important than changing the system, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it

I don’t disagree, but you’re missing the point.our behavior is less important becuause it’s tied to the behavior of the system, truly sustainable solutions doesn’t exist under the current system. it’s in the interest of the system to make everything unsustainable, we don’t have any meaningful power to make a choice in our behavior that will hurt the system.whatever illusion of choice you have is a privilege that many of us don’t have.

This video will articulate this point better than me, it’s focused on veganism but you can translate the core concepts to generally any consumer based activism.


No, both of these things require educating the masses, point is that only one of them is effective for systemic change.


People aren’t ready to vote on the grounds of ecology either, I live in one of the largest democracies.just ask yourselves what are the grounds on which people in your country vote on?

When was the last time voting caused systemic change? voting is made to sustain the system , it will never allow you to tear it apart. a Revolution will destroy the current system and replace it with a better one.

Reform will not solve the climate change, but a radical change in our consumption model will, such a change is inevitable either through a Revolution or through collapse of our Eco-system. one of these options will have more suffering than other. that’s the reason to believe in revolution


What? are we using the same definition of sustainable? Or do you unironically believe that our current consumption model is sustainable if we use ‘green technologies’ to fuel it?


sustainable is the opposite of profitable.


So the only thing we can do is vote? What a joke 😂


updated the readme with install instructions, let me know if that’s suffice. sorry for the inconvenience🥰


Pretty sure that’s against accessibility guidelines.

I’m in this picture and I don’t like it


You accused us of dismissing sources as western propaganda and now you are doing the same by labeling it as authoritarian propaganda.🙃

I don’t think I can let myself trust viewpoints that align with highly authoritarian entities. I believe that you share the links in good faith, but that is a world view that I prefer to stay away from.

Read that again comrade, I hope you’ll see the fallacy 🤗

On the other hand I am more than willing to discuss socialism, in fact book recommendations would be welcome.

I’m still learning theory, I don’t think I have read enough to give recommendations you can ask for that in communities dedicated for learning.


Oh, OK I misread your argument, you’re right that ‘everything is western propaganda’ is not a good argument. But that’s not the sole basis of our historical analysis it’s just an important part of it. I’ll provide you a learning list on the Uyghur topic to demonstrate this

We don’t dismiss every bad thing socialist countries did as western propaganda, it’s understable why you might think that since most of these ‘bad things’ are just western propaganda, there are legitimate criticisms of the CPC, other Socialist countries and their leaders, we acknowledge that, we don’t think those mistakes define them. and most importantly we won’t let those mistakes overshadow the great achievements they made for our movement.


It ends up demanding that I change my perspective of history, which I am not willing to do, because it really is too much to ask for.

You deliberately choose not to re-examine the legitimacy of claims made by your sources, and then accuses us of holding extremist beliefs 🙃.

people here will unequivocally condemn the massacre that happened in Nanking during WW2 by the then japanese imperial army. But when discussing the tianamen square massacre, it was suddenly not that bad?

How is this even comparable?? what do you think happened in Tiananmen Square?


you’ll be able to see the creator, It wasn’t relevant to the features I was working on that’s why I left it out,It will be done by this weekend.

Basically I assumed that since the config contained the instance name (URL? I forget), that would be picked up in the absence of an instance on the command line and it would connect to that automatically.

That’s the intended behavior but there was a bug that prevented default instance from loading if it wasn’t prefixed with ‘https://’. just fixed that👍


By both I meant CPI and CPI(M), should’ve made it clearer 🙃. I intended to say that arguing over semantics of CPI(M) is pretty useless, but I think I worded it poorly 😂


They’re both soc-dems playing electoral politics, name doesn’t matter.


For now federation is only between different Lemmy instances
