Is it just me or is there a definitive uptick in activity on here recently? Feels like average post and comment count and especially upvote counts went up quite a bit over the last couple of weeks

well, my presence does bring admirers

There’s a topic on the biggest Dutch socialist subreddit that asked people if they think the Farmers Protest are a gateway to fascism. I think it is and I replied my opinion, saying that there is no real leftist movement in The Netherlands to counter this. I ended my comment with the call to organizing and I urged people to start working out and learn some fighting techniques before the fascist group got too big.

Some guy is now replying that it’s a bit too radical. His suggestion is, and I kid you not, to put stickers on lamppost protesting the farmers. Fucking state of the socialist movement.

How do people unironically come up with stuff like this? Is it just a reflection of the sheer powerlessness people feel in current times? Like how does a grown person seriously think stickers in lampposts can counter fascism?

He says he doesn’t want to counter violence with more radical actions. He believes the fairly elected government, consisting of more or less the same parties that have been creating this problem for decades, should step in and fix it. But they are so far not doing anything, same goes for the police.

So he wants to put stickers on lampposts. That way the farmers see there is a group of people not supporting them. This is how they want to start countering fascism.

If only Italian partisans started stickering sooner man…

He believes the fairly elected government, consisting of more or less the same parties that have been creating this problem for decades, should step in and fix it.

Ah yes,the good old “vote the fascism away”. I’m sure Hitler would’ve just given up if the people voted for him to go away. This is the ultimate way to fix fascism and corruption forever.

So he wants to put stickers on lampposts.

And clearly the stickers would’ve scared Hitler so much that he would’ve been forced to follow the will of the people. Wow, this person just solved all of the world’s problems with stickers and voting.

But to be fair, they guy is a socdem. So, in socdem fashion, he’d rather give the fascist uprising a stern warning and he will condemn actual leftist action that itsn’t stickering.

The behind the scenes footage of the Zelensky Vogue shoot is even funnier lmao. They are seen just goofing around, actually participating in picking the right angles and stuff.

Brainrot man. I’d link it but I saw some brief clips on Instagram, so I don’t know if there is some other form of footage.

Edit: it’s on Vogue Instagram as well

Why is he on Vogue LMAO. Couldn’t he have the decency to pose for a fashion magazine on another moment, like not in the middle of a war lol

Because it works. Libs are eating it up. He unironically has rallied the Western world around Ukraine again with this Vogue photoshoot and keeping the war on the minds of the limited attention spans of lib’s brains

The best thing for Zman to do is keep making media and social media headlines because if he doesn’t, Ukraine war will eventually fade out like all other issues in favor of something new and without that pressure and support from the population, Western countries will stop funding his military and Nazis

There’s a large thread on the biggest Dutch socialism subreddit on China right now, and it is one western propaganda claim after another. Almost everyone seems to be against the evil China. There’s a few comments being ashamed of the thread and the propaganda but they get laughed at. It’s all white socialist supremacy, because only the true white socialist are good. China can’t be good.

Dutch socialism is an absolute joke.

It infuriates me that the majority of the Global South and their socialist movements all support China and their help. But the online white socialist in the west who can’t even succesfully organize a decent strike knows it better of course. Fucking chauvinist pigs.

Edit: denying Uyghur genocide gets you a ban lmao. Absolute state of the sub.

Did you guys read about BMW heating seats suscription 🥴, its just a matter of time for other companies to adopt this model. We truly live in a cringe dystopian world.

You know the funniest thing? This was predicted by a Soviet children’s book author in the 70’s. In the novel “Dunno on the Moon”(Незнайка на Луне), the titular character finds himself in a coin hotel. Turns out it is calleed that because everything costs a coin. Want lights? Give coin (it only lasts a bit). Water? Coin. Bed? Yeah, you guessed it.

Turns out the dystopia was the capital’s plann all along.

wow, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard of in at least 12 hours

Constantin Sëmin, a notable marxist journalist from Russia, has suggested that the Pelosi visit to Taiwan could be a distraction. Taiwan was made into a show, but what is the “magician” doing with the other hand?

Maybe she’s just trying to distract people from her (husband’s?) insider trading? Perfectly rational reason for provoking a new world war, obviously

(Doesn’t explain why she’s being allowed to go in an official capacity, though)

This just seems kind of small fish to fry. How many other senators and whatnot do insider trading? I doubt he’d actually be prosecuted for it.

Yeah, there’s probably something bigger going on here

Have you ever noticed how Russian newspapers and pro-Russia telegram channels always mention exact locations that they liberate (for example, Semigorye was liberated TODAY), and Ukrainian units that they destroy (for example, just this morning, the 110th and 14th Mechanized Brigades of the Ukrainian military suffered attacks on their command centers), while Ukrainian and Western newspapers always just go “omg muh sanctions putin ukrainian soldier kills 500 tanks with a single javelin missle” and they never mention anything specific (except for some “Kherson counteroffensive” that has pretty much not materialized after months of waiting)? It’s because the Western MSM is full of bullshit, and they’re scared that if they publish anything specific their viewers are going to independently cross-check and find out that they’ve been lied to.

So Pelosi had reportedly chose to go to Taiwan after all. It’s been nice knowing you, comrades.

What does that mean?

It means that a hot war between China and USA will almost certainly turn nuclear, and then we’re all toast.

Don’t forget to work out

always my comrade

Thank god you guys are still here! I had only liberals to talk to for 3 months

Hey welcome back. People even made threads about you and we were worried.

Enjoy tankie shitposting again!

Are my friends really my friends if they only message me when they want to go out drinking?

In my opinion, not friends, but drinking buddies, which is also fun

Anyone got a book recommendation? Or a piece of theory to read?

Doesn’t really matter what the subject is really.

If you like statistics, Albert Szymanski’s “Human Rights in the Soviet Union”

Anything by Strugacky brothers. I can’t vouch for the quality of the translation, but I think it’ll work still. My favourite is probably “Monday begins on Saturday”. To summarize, it is about a stereotypical Soviet science institute, but they’re working with magic. Plenty of humour, plenty of philosophy.

I’ll check if out. Thanks comrade Shrike

Found this on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXxt0fIfc5M The comments are predictably disgusting, a lot of downplaying the genocide of the natives just because a cartoon character is a scumbag.
