Those poor german electricians 😢


Wow, china is inside my stovetop espresso pot 😳😳😳


No doubt that the current war will end up with cells of these people casually strewn throughout Europe 👍 . It’s not like there’s precedent to these sort of things at all!


Most politically literate liberal



I’d have to buy a PC/ gaming console to do so, comrade. I don’t really have the space to do that sadly. Plus, I’m kinda bad with coping when it comes to certain things and I’d probably spend hella time on it anyway, hehe. I think they have an even newer one called The Quarry, though the storytelling on this one is a bit poor, but the game seems very polished physically.


Oh wtf, it took me a second to see it hahah 🤣. Stellar graphwork from the pigs in Florida.


Capitalist society drowns you in rugged individualism, but the second you say you wanna do art, people call you stupid 😐


Until Dawn! Though I’ve never played it, just watched playthroughs 😢



The Ghost of Leopold is about what the Belgians did in the Congos and surrounding regions. It’s more focused on political scheming and individual characters, but it does delve a bit into the various struggles of the Congolese people.

How to join?

Check out a few parties here and there. There are a few on here. I’m a candidate for the PSL myself!

For me, we chatted a bit over email and just kinda talked about why we’re socialists, my life background, political background, etc. You’ll probably be able to just talk over the phone/ zoom. You might be asked to meet a representative. It really depends on the organization.

Situations where you shouldn’t join?

Organizing is an inherently dangerous task, so there is that to consider. You won’t always be fighting cops, but like, I’d imagine there are times out in protests where things can get tricky. Are you okay with that possibility?

Also, tell your reps about how comfortable you feel with certain things. Maybe you’d prefer to help make poster, maybe something more desk focused. They should help you fit in and contribute.

Responsiblities?

Not quite fully sure, but at a minimum, carry the party message. Be respectful and mindful of the communities you’re in.

What’s done?

Different kinds of outreach. Handing out flyers, marching in solidarity, doing security for building occupations, helping fundraise, theory and current event discussions, etc.

I’m writing this as I’m coming back from attending pride with my comrades, so I probably missed a thing or two.


Mr xi, my people need freedom

Was this the Katyn Massacre? Conveniently left out is that the original accusation started with none other than Goebbels himself.


I’m seeing all the spinning being done already. B b b b but it took a few weeks, third rate army! Haha Ghost of Kiev! Half of Ukraine might become a breakaway territory, and people will still fantasize about how the Cokehead of Kiev is gonna save the day.


How can I read an article without having to register an email everytime 🤮
Everyday, Capitalism finds a way to ruin my living moments. How can I read articles without having to register for some dumb trial thing? I tried reader view, but I guess it only shows the teaser of the article :/.

Propaganda time is over, it's time to go home

I woke up from a nightmare, and I saw this when I opened my laptop. You basically get to wait for like 4 - 5 days for glorified microwave food/ food items that you end up having to cook yourself. Maybe I'm still in the nightmare...

PSA for the workers of the world! ᵃˡˢᵒ ᵖᵃʳᵗⁱᵃˡ ʳᵃⁿᵗ
Being conditioned to say sorry when your boss asks to you cover on your off day, having to say thank you when you get your check, and being expected to give a 2 week notice is subtle class warfare imo. I quit a job last month (was chronically underpaid and overworked there, worked there loosely for like 2 years). This one, I've worked for a few months, but I'm quitting cause they wanna be slick and try to delay our paychecks twice in a row. I did't say thank you both times when I got my check and I could tell my manager was heated because of that.

Please assist me in responding to a bit of propaganda (IUD's in Xinjiang, but Zenz more specifically)
> There's plenty of material that breaks the number of fallacies and lies in his "research" down, but if you prefer a more western source - quoting me Grayzone isn't a western source now? Interesting, because they certainly identify as one. (them) Anyway, this is the same critiques that I've seen before. Including claims that what's happening in Xinjiang isn't technically "genocide" as long as the population is growing (which does not contradict the UN's definition of genocide). It's also openly admitting that the Chinese government started clamping down on Uyghur birth rates while they were loosening birth restrictions on all other ethnicities, which IS textbook genocide. They also admit that the CCP's enforced limitations on Uyghur births are what caused their birth rates to crater in 2017, at a time when the CCP was openly lamenting an impending demographic crisis. The government clearly wants more babies, they just don't want them to be of the wrong ethnicity. Again, genocide (them) > Among Zenz's "major findings" was the claim that "80 percent of all net added IUD placements in China… were performed in Xinjiang, despite the fact that the region only makes up 1.8 percent of the nation's population." > According to the 2019 China Health Statistics Yearbook published by the National Health Commission–the original source of Zenz's claim–the number of new IUD insertion procedures in Xinjiang in 2018 accounted for only 8.7 percent of China's total. So Zenz's "major finding" appeared to be off by a factor of 10, a staggering error that substantially undermined the explosive quality of his argument. Amazingly, this is the same error that I've seen every other tankie parrot. It relies on comparing two different statistics, "new IUD insertions" and "net IUD insertions". Zenz was pretty clear in his paper that "net IUD insertions" are defined as the number of new IUDs inserted, minus the number removed that year. And he saw a huge red flag that unlike every other province, very few of the IUDs in Xinjiang were being removed. (him) https://adrianzenz.medium.com/a-response-to-the-report-compiled-by-lin-fangfei-associate-professor-at-xinjiang-university-bdad4bbb97f9 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The point about Grayzone is a silly one, especially considering it wasn't the only source I mentioned. I have work in like 30 minutes, so I don't want to hastily push out some arguement centered around sophistry. I won't have till tomorrow to finalize a response, but I figured I might ask for a bit of help from people more familiar with the work. I think i vaguely remember reading something tangential to the claim of "They also admit that the CCP's enforced limitations on Uyghur births are what caused their birth rates to crater in 2017, at a time when the CCP was openly lamenting an impending demographic crisis. The government clearly wants more babies, they just don't want them to be of the wrong ethnicity. Again, genocide". IIRC, the Uyghur populace were given more wiggle room for more birth rates than other ethnic groups in china when taking their size into account. I know it seems like a waste of time, but we cannot stop explaining. Thank you in advance.

I would like to announce that I got a donut today while handing out flyers :,)
That's it. It was my first day organizing, and someone gave me a donut after talking to us!

Dude, every...single...time
Whenever I see one of these, *this millenial earns XXX,000 from being a landlord a year! Learn how!* articles, it always starts with having rich family members...sigh ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/66d9debe-a111-4055-b38c-9ea0c8ab44b1.png)

Freebie Alerts, app for free goods!
This might not be applicable to everyone, but there's an app called freebie alerts. There's pretty much everything on it: TV's, dryers, chairs, etc. Be safe and keep your head up. You're not bad for being poor, friend. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/b4ff4803-57bf-4b1f-b7c4-b88fecdcabfe.jpeg)

I did a thing!
I had my meeting with two representatives from my local PSL org :)! I do wish i had read more into the different publications the org had, because they did ask me about what specifically interested me in their publication. I want to write a special thank you to the guy(s) who kept on ddosing lemmy. You gave me no other choice ;).

I concur, this picture in fact goes hard

Searching for a certain Lenin quote 🧐
The gist of it was basically mocking people who would say that something is socialist simply because it has socialist in its name. Some person evoked the ol "well the germans called themselves socialists" *argument* and I figured it would be alot more efficient to hit em with the Lenin copypasta 😎.

Bruh these jeans I like are 400+ dollars. I hate capitalism, that's it. Thanks.

Anyone have le sources about the landlord militias in the times of Mao Zedong and perhaps prior?
I'm in a conversation with someone, and I'm trying to explain the run down about how violent and reactionary landlords were.

I'm in a bit of a bind, please provide me with some 1/5 life crisis advice ლ(ٱ٥ٱლ)
I've been working in the food industry for about 3 years now, and the long hours, no prospect of upward mobility, and bosses (derogatory), I can safely say I don't enjoy this anymore (not that I really did to begin with, just needed pocket money bro). Luckily, I do have a considerable sum of money saved up over the years. I do have a business idea in mind which would be somewhat passive (mushroom growing), but I'm afraid that it would just be a money pit and I'd be worse off. On the other hand, there's going back to school. I'm still young, but alas, the prospect of a student loan is not enticing at all. I could do maintain the job, go to school, and do the mushrooming...in theory...but I do enjoy having time for the gym and just going out for hikes. What seems like the best course of action?

I recently went down the Engels, Marx, Nietzsche, etc. pipeline and I just gotta say I'm suprised at what I found. This is the same Karl Marx who said "We have no compassion and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror." The idea that Marx would be aPpAlLed At StAliNiSm is laughable at best.

[Rant, the 2 am kind 😢] I find so much of western philosophy to be so dull now
I used to be interested in philosophy back in highschool, but now it's just not doing it for me. Alot of it just seems to be like *I think therefore I am, but if I wasn't I wouldn't be because if I was I would, but if I couldn't, then I wouldn't be able to, and if i*... like bro maybe I'm dumb, but wtf are these dudes on about??? 😭 On another note, some of the worst of it like Nihilism goes so well hand in hand with capitalism.

Life is so absurd :o
We started out as little cell thingies millions of years ago and now we can scroll through digitized sex acts by the millions. The universe literally just existed...out of nowhere...NOWHERE [what a funny looking word]! Oh well, back to my 9 - 5, thanks capitalism 🤑👍🏼!
