Something tells me that a baseball bat wouldn’t be enough which is kinda scary.

What’s so funny to me is they often get ratio’d on these tweets, and people point them to why they’re wrong on these things, but they still never change. That tells me that they’re not just “uninformed”, but malicious.


I imagine too they get some kind of bonuses / perks if they do one of these and it goes viral. Both the US and Israel have paid propo / social media departments so that wouldn’t be a surprise.

How is making sure people have a home “depressing?”



From Engels - Principles of Communism

In what way do proletarians differ from slaves?

The slave is sold once and for all; the proletarian must sell himself daily and hourly.

The individual slave, property of one master, is assured an existence, however miserable it may be, because of the master’s interest. The individual proletarian, property as it were of the entire bourgeois class which buys his labor only when someone has need of it, has no secure existence. This existence is assured only to the class as a whole.

The slave is outside competition; the proletarian is in it and experiences all its vagaries.

The slave counts as a thing, not as a member of society. Thus, the slave can have a better existence than the proletarian, while the proletarian belongs to a higher stage of social development and, himself, stands on a higher social level than the slave.

The slave frees himself when, of all the relations of private property, he abolishes only the relation of slavery and thereby becomes a proletarian; the proletarian can free himself only by abolishing private property in general.


In canada I can only think of Jagmeet Singh in the NDP, which is of course another party of imperialist socdems.. I do remember him having a pro-indigenous video tho so he’s probably not too bad as a person.




Good meme, but in the future use one of the meme coms, like !fullcommunism@lemmygrad.ml or !genzedong@lemmygrad.ml , we wanna keep this com mostly articles and high level discussion.

Looking it up, they say to end world hunger it’d cost ~$30B / year. So scrapping that program alone could’ve solved world hunger for 58 years.


But these spats amongst wealthy countries are only one part of the problem, and are likely to abate once production increases. A report from the Intelligence Unit at the Economist predicts that most of Europe, the UK and US will have widespread vaccination coverage by the end of 2021, with the remainder of the advanced economies likely to have coverage by mid-2022.

For the countries that cannot afford to pay, it is a different story. “[W]idespread vaccination coverage will not be achieved before 2023, if it happens at all” is the likely scenario for developing countries, according to the report.

This is because COVID-19 vaccines, and the companies competing to make them, are not charitable endeavours. The aim is to make money by selling to those who can pay. The vaccine industry pre-COVID was already estimated to be worth US$35 billion, and it will get a welcome boost from COVID-19. Pfizer alone is expected to make US$15 billion this year from its vaccine. To maximise these profits, supplies will go to the highest bidders.

So fucked that poorer countries aren’t getting vaccinated until 2 years after the rich countries are.


Yeah, its mostly for videos at this point. Tons of people in the comments are pointing out that if they ever find it alone, they’re going to destroy it. In a few years tho they’ll have “self defense” mechanisms and we’re halfway to terminator.


Ya, accomplices is the best way to say it. Malcolm X also said that after one NOI assassination attempt on his family, when the NOI tried to firebomb his house, he said that the FBI had thoroughly infiltrated the NOI and knew everything that was going on. So they already knew the hit was out on him, and made it easier for them by arresting his bodyguards.
