This is a line I’ve read today. There’s an exhibition about the history of the town that I used to live in (and came to visit because my parents live here). It detailed the history of local industry.
It started off at the beginning of the 20th century with a couple of mentions of landowners, petite bourgeoise and private farmers independently developing rudimentary confectionery and baking industry.
Then came the socialist era, during which all this industry was nationalized and transformed into worker cooperatives. It detailed how the industry prospered during socialism and the factories grew exponentially under the guidance of the communist party, but of course, had to throw in “despite great successes of the socialist system in developing the region significantly, it’s totalitarian tyranny left much in the way of personal freedoms to be desired”.
And last, it mentioned the disaster that was the privatizations of 1991. Right after that line in the title, it highlighted a couple of capitalists who came to own most of the previously-collectivized industry, and fired most of the workers, who then left the region, leaving the town in shambles and the local industry to collapse.
The exhibition then concluded with the line “despite many workers being let go, they, compared to the totalitarian socialist regime, had the freedom to find employment elsewhere”
Man, I gotta stop reading this shit.
This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.
We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
I enjoy museums but, jfc, you’ve got to avoid the text. It’s usually all very subtle but the terrible messaging is everywhere.
I visited one last year and it had a WWII exhibit. There was only one positive mention of Russia, naming it in a list of allies (not the first in the list, either). Every other mention was negative. You can imagine the kind of this statement.
Then there was a Nazi cabinet with a simple explanation saying this is who the allies were fighting. The items were just presented as curiosities. IIRC there was even a short translation of a sad letter written by a Nazi soldier. 😢
I won’t tell you what the British Empire room was like.
These are curated by the woke leftist neomarxist academicsTM we hear so much about.
Wonderful, isn’t it? And people have been spoonfed this type of nonsense for thirty years at the very least. And now many sincerely believe it
It’s kind of amazing that they’re so bold with this
“yeah we completely destroyed your town but better dead than red am i right?”
Why wouldn’t they be bold? They feel like they have won. Thirty years of unchallenged hegemony. And whatever popular movements have arisen in that time, have either been coopted or crushed.
“Our town was completely ruined, but it’s all good because now we have freeze peach”
“But like if you advocate for communism you will learn what we mean by free speech” :)
“We support free speech*”
Seriously though, there were riots against NATO and massive demonstrations against our participation in the Ukraine war, and the prime minister went on TV to say that “these dissidents should not have their voices heard, our goverment and American allies will not be intimidated by such uncivilized acts”
Also, there was a new commemorative bench dedicated to some woman, who was “a victim of communist tyranny, injustices and intolerance.
Googled her, turns out she was a landlord who got executed for supporting the nazis. Go figure.
Weird how that just keeps happening somehow.
Yeah, a complete coincidence with no explanation.
“Won’t somebody think of the poor oppressed nazi landlords 😭😭😭”
