Anyone else get that feeling like you’re in an evil parallel universe?


In a sense he’s right, it is no comparison between the two attitudes. He just thinks the wrong way around. Lol bit of a horseshoe innit


Because those are all curated vote choices which is a false/paper freedom aka lying to the people. What would be achieved by a proletarian state engaging in this?


A multiplicity of parties does not guarantee “democracy”.

The United States is also a one-party state but, with typical American extravagance, they have two of them. Julius Nyerere

Within a party structured around democratic centralism and the principle of engagement with the masses you can have a far greater degree of democracy than in a multi party state. Also if, as you say, you want a marxist economy why would you want to sacrifice that by allowing non-marxist elements control of the state machine? Capitalism doesn’t persist in capitalist countries because everyone votes for its reinstatement every year. It persists by force; and it will use that force if ever given half a chance through the ballot box. Having a government with a Marxist-Leninist party at the head of governance also does not preclude other parties from being coalition partners with said party e.g China, DDR. Not to mention the fact that previous existing socialisms and currently existing socialisms are marked by great degrees of genuine peoples power at local and national levels, with far greater alignment between policy and the interests of the common people


If you are bored then joina good marxist organisation and start building the material conditions to progress your society beyond capitalism


I use it every now and then. But in my country we shorten everything down



I know Paul has gone full 180 on the People’s Republic, but did he actually call DPRK and Cuba imperialist???


Well I’m crying now. Revolutionary fervor intensifies




Always recommend reading over watching, there is a lot of bias in just absorbing others’ takes via youtube or lectures if you want to get a true idea of someone’s philosophy. As for recommendations, wage labour and capital and engels’ synopsis of capital are great starting points before dipping into some left wing communism an infantile disorder


Yaaay now we can continue extracting unsustainable amounts of resources from the earth and everything can go back to being totes fine


Yeah it is pretty active, not like spend all day browsing active (probably for the best because there should be at least a little bit of organising being done irl). Speed was probably just good timing between posting and me popping on before bed



Lol wut, that bit at the end, “there’s no poor people in America.” Apparently those tent cities are uninhabited 🤔


Isn’t this already a thing? I have a vague memory of one of the Disney parks being granted municipal status or something similar.



Of course. You aren’t going to organise the working class by being a recluse, you have to meet people where they are. Plus, you know, social needs and all that jazz
