Welcome again to everybody! Make yourself at home <3 In the time honoured tradition of our group, here is our weekly discussion thread!

Also check out our telegram https://t.me/real_genzedong!

Subreddit archive is available here: https://tankies.la/archive and is updated through yesterday, however it is still heavily under construction and you should expect continued disruptions/changes in usability of the page over the coming weeks. Be warned, it’s like marxists.org level of web design as I’m only interested in it working, not its appearance rn.

Cheers

Military and Police have showed up in my high school today to leech some clueless highschoolers. They do this every year apparently. The recruiters even started calling juniors and seniors (including me) to sign up for shit. They brought fucking bouncy castle shit with their logos plastered all over it. Makes me fucking sick, them doing this.

I’m a vet and it’s extremely predatory. I hate the idea of military and police trying to brainwash kids who literally don’t know any better. Worked on me to a degree.

They got me as a junior. Biggest regret of my life is having heard those scummy predator motherfuckers out.

Syria and the DPRK have made diplomatic contact!

Oh you are an Che Guevara enjoyer? Then give me a full resume of everything that happened in his entire life 🔫😐

Blackshirts and Reds is great so far.

I got in an argument with someone about communism and they really had problems with the EVERYONE MAKES THE SAME, THAT DOESNT WORK and the BUT WHAT ABOUT FREEDOM arguments.

Somehow I could not find any good explanation about these topics. Does someone on here have some good sources for this? Especially the wages thing. I understand what Marx meant with his wage labour theory and I understand communist visions for wages, but I couldn’t really explain that stuff clearly yesterday. Thanks comrades.

Look at past successes of Socialism. In the USSR more ‘advanced’ careers like doctors were paid more. What was amazing about the Soviet system was that you could do virtually any job and have decent living standards unlike the west. Their was however incentive if you wanted to earn more.

Can we bring back the word “Overmorrow”? It means day after tomorrow and im tired of saying all those syllables and typing that all out

It is already a word in Dutch. We have one too for the day before yesterday but I don’t know how to translate it.

Apparently the similarly archaic English word is “nudiustertian”, but that doesnt roll off the tongue quite so well

Edit: oh wait theres “ereyesterday” which sounds a lot better

The more I learn about different European languages, the more English starts to look like an outlier, not the other way around (as we are sometimes Led to believe). No gendering of nouns, no word for day after tomorrow or before yesterday. And it just keeps going.

all in agreement?

You can bring it overmorrow

There’s only one effective way to fight fascism and it isn’t voting or peaceful demonstrations. But we in America are just not ready for that conversation. The scariest thing about the current political climate is that I think the fashies on the Right have already figured that out while the Libs are too stupid to even realize the danger.

This is to imply that libs wont side with the fascists lmaoooo

I revived a plant that suddenly started dying this weekend. I threw a load of coffee rests over it and the fucker is now stronger than ever.

Also, a copy of Blackshirts and Reds just fell on my doorstep. I´m looking forward to reading it.

Coffee revives plants !? Also nice, it’s a very good book. Maybe lemmygrad should have a list with “must reads”?

Yeah apparently it contains nutritious substances like potassium, so if you have leftover coffee(grounds) you can use it on most of your indoor plants.

My gf’s mom has a big vegetable garden and she also uses it to keep snails away. They don’t like caffeine.

Well thats pretty cool !

O shit thank you! Is it similar to using plant food? Better than repotting haha, semi unrelated but I remember seeing an article that birds are learning to use tobacco within their nests since it is a natural pesticide. Same kind of pragmatism.

Yes and no. I believe it’s not good for plants to only use coffee because it contains a lot of nitrogen as well. Plants with an acidic ground will do well with coffee though. But most of the plants I have in my house, which are common houseplants, do pretty well on coffee.

The intelligence of birds can be scary sometimes.

My mother brushed off my support of communism as a side effect of my ADHD/High-functioning Autism

I don’t want to be here anymore

Your sympathy towards human beings and your fight to make this place more equal must be because something is wrong in your brain!! I, a neurotypical person, have more realistic views such as oppression of minorites and burning the ever living shit out of this planet for the profit of a select few.

The people that are crying about Elon owning Twitter are so fucking annoying. I even saw one communist that said he was gonna delete his account

How is Elon worse than the previous bloodsuckers that used to own Twitter? He literally didn’t even do anything yet and everybody’s already being so dramatic for what

I bet 99% of people b*tching about Elon can’t even name a single previous board member or major (10%+ shareholder) of Twitter

The problems seem to be with the things he wants. His whole free speech shit is just a mask for right wing/fascist ideologies to make their voices heard without criticism. It’s going to be a platform where fascist propaganda will run rampant. Yes, you don’t have to use Twitter. But that’s not the point. The point is what I said above, it will be a dat right echo chamber and capitalism will always profit off that.

It is worrying.

True

Just see how far your free speech will get you if you make leftists post fighting for workers’ rights, or anti Tesla posts of whatever. I’m sure that will go down fine.

Just be an chad like me and never use twitter lol, i am sure my life is much better by not even getting close of that bloody jungle.

Yeah, I’ve even seen some people go on about how they’re freaked out a billionaire can just buy twitter and control said narrative… Like twitter wasn’t owned by one before, not to mention basically all telecommunications and media giants.

That said, I think a lot of people will be disappointed when they find out in practice “free speech absolutism” doesn’t exist. I am holding out some hope he will stop banning everyone who disagrees with the corporate narrative, but my hopes aren’t high with Mr “we will coup whoever we want”.

Although I agree that Twitter has always allowed misinformation and has a political bias, Musk has reportedly fired employees who have spoken in disagreement with his actions and this if anything is pushing the social platform to the right/pro-capitalist, I don’t use it but it seems Twitter has alot of centrists that at least make fun of landlords and lobbying. I just don’t want a doomer mentality where nothing is worth saving.

The issue is that most people don’t seem to understand how much Twitter was censoring when it came to politics, so they assume that Elon is going to be the one to do it

Oh that’s only for blue checkmark mfs I’m p sure

What even happened to the Bucha and Kramatorsk stories? Or the hundreds of towns with supposed mass graves Zelensky was talking about? All I hear about now is that Russia is cutting off gass supply to Poland and Bulgaria. But that’s about it.

My home country is now running a story about war crimes commited by the Syrian army because a video of two soldiers killing 10 unarmed people just surfaced. Therefore they can now conclude that the Syrian army has been commiting war crimes on a large scale.

Still waiting for the day the media finds out Israel exists

Im keeping the popcorn out for when they find out America is a country

@Mzuark

Kramatorsk disappeared because it became obvious that Ukrainians shot a missle at themselves. Bucha is probably similar because the timeline simply didn’t add up.

So there are rumors going around on telegram and twitter that Poland, about to conduct a large military exercise north and east, is actually looking to move into Ukraine to take the very western part of the country.

At the same time we’ve had insane talk about Romania (and Ukraine) making a move on Transnistria.

Honestly can’t imagine either of those happening at all, but the stakes are rising so fast and the West is running out of options to escalate further so who knows.

Watch Ukraine invade another country and then be called brave heroes while they’re nazi death squads are raping and killing the locals.

Poland is part of the NATO so unless they want to be literally wiped from the surface of the earth I don’t think they are going to do it.

But they might be actually suicidal. We live in crazy times after all.

Or wait, do you mean as in attack Ukraine? That would be mental lol

@KommandoGZD

I’ve seen all kinds of variations of this. Some said Poland would literally invade Ukraine and annex the western part around Lviv, others said they’d move in as peacekeeping forces, but essentially occupy that western part anyway to end up with a situation like this. I don’t buy it at all, but who knows. Moving in Polish peacekeepers is the only thing I find even 1% likely, but even that would be absolutely mental.

What’s more real and concerning seems to be the Transnistria situation. Bulgaria apparently has asked its citizens not to travel to Moldova or leave the country and Romania explained reports and videos about troop movements with more exercises. I don’t buy it either, but Eu/Nato being on a pure escalation trip has to lead somewhere very dangerous. These people don’t have a reverse gear, so ultimately something is going to happen.

Not gonna lie, increasing talks on both sides of nuclear escalation scares me a little. I wasn’t around for the Cold War Era so I don’t know how bad it was then, but it feels fishy.

Media in my country are also running stories on Transnistria, blaming a lot on Russia despite lack of concrete evidence (surprise surprise).

These people don’t have a reverse gear,

That’s the scariest part, isn’t it? They treat it like a game of chicken, while gambling with nuclear annihilation. And it really seems that the psychos would rather see it all burn in flames than to admit just once they were wrong

Interestingly, some weeks ago Rusell Bentley predicted something like that woukd happen. He thinks that Russia has some sort of deal with NATO to allow the US save some face and be able to say they “helped Ukraine” and that they totally haven’t been humiliated by the ineffectiveness of their ridiculous sanctions trying to kill the russian economy. If he’s right (and he has been in the past), NATO will move to take the west and pretend that they stopped the russians from taking all of the Ukraine. I hope it’s all planned as he says, otherwise the bastards risk an escalation that will get out of control way too quickly.

What if we make a cryptocoin called Xi Bucks. Like any other crypto it will have no real value but it would be fun to do some trolling with.

I made the design some time ago!

Kaiserreich has been the least cringe mod I’ve played so far. Kaiserredux could also be cool since you can establish the Soviet Union.
