Yeah it’s the same thing, just with other direction, it was “immigrants are taking our jobs” when their country imported workers, and now that its deindustrializing, it’s “that country stole our jobs”. Capital is really invisible to those people.


At the same time blocking help and sanctioning the victims in Syria. I wouldn’t be surprised if NATO organized something even more nasty to kick them while they are down.


Probably both. It was part of a battle in the class war, a fundamental one, of the information control. Back then the non-mainstream superstition flown from another sources, and was uncontrolled, offered alternative narration and, as you said, alternative possibilities, so it needed to be destroyed. Right now, the non-mainstream superstition flow from the same source as the mainstream, they are only the safety valve. “Don’t like capitalism? Consumerism sickens you? Hear what this guru here have to say, or whatever, we have full offer to you, even with discounts and home delivery! Class? Marx? Never heard of it.”


Promotion of superstition to protect the ruling class by dividing and diverting the working class is the oldest social engineering existing. Usually religion served in that role (and they still do for huge majority), but XX century seen unprecedented before decline in religiousness and rise in materialism, so the ruling class needed to cook off the new kinds of superstition and promote it hard, that’s why we have so many wacky cults and pseudo-scientific nonsense and this isn’t only for the ignorant masses, i mean just read anything by Dawkins, the guy have a point about traditional religions but his books just ooze spiritual unfulfillment and he’s projecting it over science.

it is as comrade @Shrike502@lemmygrad.ml said, an organized attack on the philosophical basis of marxism. And coupled with liberal encroaching with vulgar materialism in hand and resurgence of religion in socialist circles, a very, very successful one.




Counterpoint, i would probably throw food at walls too if forced to watch Fox all day.


I doubt anyone can be this ignorant, it looks even worse than ignorance, he does not blame the capitalist that sacked him from sheer greed, he blames people in another country that got his job.


Some of them even have chins, so that’s the difference between shooting schools in USA and shooting schools in Donbass.


  1. To give them some semblance of sel determination, i’m a king so it wouldn’t be socialism, not in USA anyway, and it’s absolutely clear that they won’t get any selfdetermination on federal level, it would be easier in states.

  2. The purpose isn’t to help the people really, current USA is sadly too fucked up for that, the purpose is to defend the rest of the world from USA. Balkanization on state level, though it won’t last since they would join anyway would at worst given the world years maybe evn decades of reprive and at best make former USA into several lasting state blocks, with more ruling representation of current minorities.




There’s several ones about bin Laden death, probably the one linked to another one, that Osama never stopped being CIA agent (this i could believe as in topic) and they killed him much earlier to quiet him, then used the chase for dead man as excuse to do more imperialism.



they are the ones who have the right to decide.

Haaahahahaha good one.


Yeah, but as in case of USA, their only true friend is the geography.


He just got banned after he spammed lemmy with mass of antirussian shit with multiple copies in various communities, including this gem, pure nazi “asiatic hordes” propaganda


Fun fact, my favorite Lemmy copium dispenser posted Zizek about Russia today


Yeah this is what UA stans stand for. Not accidentally when you mention that site they go into hard denial mode.


Yeah, it was clear that Trump had his fingers in this but also did not had much hope. He just waited what was happening, when it was clear it’s failure and nothing would be gained from this, he immediately denounced the rioters and distanced from them. If they would succeed, he would proably appear in all his dubious glory to reap the rewards.


Install followers in secret services, purge the rest, then purge the military, then martial law and proper denazification. Then disarmament. Then dissolve the Union.


UK is not nearly safe from invasion as they would want to think. Historically, they took note from the Spanish Armada attempt, which was failed because weather and incompetence of spanish commanders* and later build three things needed for island nation to defend from the invasion - strong navy, strong spy network and strong diplomacy. Now they have shit navy, and their spies and diplomats work more for US than UK. They also of course don’t have any candidates for invading them, as single glance on the map would show.

*Fun facts: 1. English navy which is credited for repelling the invasion managed to sunk entire grand amount of TWO ships in the open battle (of which one iirc was also blown up due to accident with handling blackpowder). 2. Spanish army at the time if managed to properly land and be provided support would most likely completely crushed the English.


I wouldn’t be surprised, note that wiki article cites various usages of that salute which all date after the Hunger Games movie came out in 2012, and with how the exact same people from CIA and their facades seems to train most of those people .

It’s also a logo of the UA far right party Svoboda making it more relevant in context of Ukraine, but in this case i’m not 100% sure, it seems to be older, but all photos of this logo i seen with clear date are from the 2012 or later…

Also, yes, western propagandists do get their ideas from popular culture in general, because references to what people know are popular are working way to anchor the message in people’s heads. This explains the gigantic effort with which USA performs the cultural invasion of entire world, it makes their propaganda job way easier.


Yes, in Poland after 1989 the trend of “school is for raising kids, so raise them for me”* is being disturbingly common too as both school and work hours ramp up. Especially notable among the lumpen, yuppies and small business owners.

*Note for english language users: in polish, the word used is “wychowanie” which is very broad term for basically entire raising and socialization process, but it specifically include the parental role, so it actually sounds more improper for school than in english.


You can read Rainer Shea blog, he write a lot of doomerism about USA, but in quite different angle and meaning. You can try to compare.


I remember reading sci-fi novel “Ilion” by Dan Simmons (incredibly overrated writer), where some post-humans visit future Al-Quds and in the ruined city there is still one thing working, a loudspeaker system constantly loudly calling “Kill the Jews”.

Like wtf.


Also for @frippa@lemmy.ml

That’t the other three finger salute.

Serbian is this one, note different fingers are used. It’s also a very common blessing gesture in general christianity.



I can read the US headlines already: “Cuba wants to abolish death sentence. But at what cost?”


There was some cases of prisoners exchange, but i can’t recall the any actual prison break action. There was a lot of political action though. For example i recall the big SR/menshevik trial in 1922 where the western socialchauvinists blackmailed RSFSR to not sentence them to death. Lenin wrote that agreeing to it was a huge mistake, and the actual trial ended up as show trial probably because of that. It was not a show trial that west like to recall though, because the sentences ended up very light compared to guilt, with many being outright let off.


Unfortunately the silesian autonomists are libertarians and no one is treating them seriously, but the silesian nationality is the problem that is being shushed in Poland hard since Poland has tried hard to prevent it from emerging as true nation for over 100 years now.


Lukashenko is a real deal socialdemocrat and it is pissing the modern blairite scum incredibly.


The spartans were scared shitless of arming their slaves.

If you mean helots they armed them all the time, helots served in every campaign as light infantry.


USA propaganda is really impressive, so many people were willing to give them huge credit of trust.



Technically petty bourgeoisie. Basically have same interests and similar situation as working class, though you might notice historically that they more often than not side with the rest of bourgeoisie against workers. Iirc Marx described that in “The class struggles in France”

Also that post is more for GenZhou community than here.



Absolutely not, just i noticed libs are usually are so hyperindividualised they unconsciously tend to atribute everything systemic on all levels to a person, so when one did not do it, it called for a joke.


He was in Africa, and that’s typical murican soldier coming home scene.


No, that’s exactly this, i kinda do feel sorry for buddhists (and hinduists and euro pagans and every other legit users of swastika) getting dragged in that crap, but this had become a meme decades ago and we STILL have nazis around who will unironically use this excuse. Note that followers of those religions in the euro culture circles tend to either completely avoid swastikas by now or use very stylized versions.







Technical issue
no idea where to post it, so i post it to the biggest community. Since the update in this week, when i'm writing a comment, and someone in the meantime write a comment to me when notification pops up, everything i'm writing currently gets completely deleted. Is there some setting to fix this or i would have to resign from even moderately long posts?

"There is freedom in America For the stranglers of people But the working people Are free from the freedoms there"

This time it is Space Stalin, or rather Staliiin

Note, this guy is actually far right (you can note as he couldn't stop from mentioning "soviet atrocities") hardcore conservatist catholic, to the right of PiS.

Posted by my favourite Lemmy copium dispenser. I fixed it somewhat: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/65c38eb0-0acb-4711-9ab1-09ae8110c195.png) As a bonus, he also posted some real chud energy cringe today: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/dba2ccd2-f65a-4ea6-862c-dd9ee501f039.png)

They are like the proper green and peasant parties should be - green on the outside and red on the inside. Not brown inside like the current european ones, especially german.



Libs are coming there thinking "the right? That surely aren't us", and then parrot every dem aproved piece of propaganda possible.


This is the guy who holds daily briefings on the current situation regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as an Adviser to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine
Click link for a full article, it's absolutely hilarious. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/0715dca1-520d-4cfa-90bd-90fee3ca7e76.png)



Just randomly found this gem of liberal democracy. You probably seen this pic already, but then he doubles down: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/98394838-c5e7-4ad3-b8da-f9b1b8dfc28f.png) Least deluded fash out there: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/1910ace7-75a0-4fb9-8217-9659faae75de.png) Aaaaand of course: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/28fdd68b-d298-4b44-a627-d923fb1b2d4c.png)

Stable Diffusion is probably getting ddosed so instead of magnificent new Stalin pics, i'm stealing memes from reddit.


Unless of course, it is private property of people we don't like.




Also few more interesting results: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/c8b7f34c-2f6d-4354-9d4e-6a27e9c42093.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/5288a5d9-70f4-4a43-9117-6e36b3bf4f09.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/da781221-2076-4d93-98a2-a1ba93a02762.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/d5a6cb2a-60bd-465d-a951-9f00faf8a0b0.jpeg)


It really have all possible checkmarks. Note Poland in "bad guys" lmao.

Observe what is gonna happen to that big field of grain

Few interesting results for the "communist world" prompt, weirdly enough, almost all i got looks like boardgame or music CD covers. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/d9283aeb-32f5-41b8-bd70-7ea3c24a4d72.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/1b802faf-0f39-4c43-959f-fab6e3c7c436.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/2011798e-b2c9-4100-ad5f-472b87265ab6.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/a4cd5b84-d144-4a21-966f-b6d22255fb32.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/b2c523b2-e63d-4164-b05e-870a4179da66.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/2da82f8b-7541-4408-a2e4-e4d3b375e605.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/e78505fb-92cc-4e48-9005-61e0fd36ed29.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/c35dafdc-eba3-4ed7-a65b-2603b20d32cf.jpeg) ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/8b802bc6-7ac9-46c5-b98f-fae813eaebf2.jpeg)

*Stupidity Belt is Baltics-Poland-Ukraine, i'm not sure where he is from, but probably Polish since usage of "kacap" and siberian border with China is a polish meme.

A spectre is haunting Galaxy— the spectre of communism. All the powers of Republic have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Senate and Chancellor, Yoda and Jedi Council, Separatist corporations and Hutt kajidics. Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as communistic by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries? Two things result from this fact: I. Communism is already acknowledged by all Galactic powers to be itself a power. II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole galaxy, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Communism with a manifesto of the party itself. To this end, Communists of various species and cultures have assembled in Coruscant and sketched the following manifesto, to be published in the Basic, Huttese, Shyriiwook, Mando'a, Ubese and Rodian languages.
