A common refrain in Iran is “Not capitalism, but Islam”

“Too many of the ultra religious folks turn to fascism in the same horrible ways that the capitalists do” what, then, of Stalin’s reconstitution of the church and promotion of socialist morality on the basis of orthodox teachings? Or do you agree with the CIA’s Hannah Arendt’s claim that communism is just “successful fascism”?

Religion can take many forms. It can be a tool of the oppressor (Christianity’s use in colonialism) or it can be a tool of the oppressed (Christianity’s use in Liberation Theology to fight against colonialism) … so too is Islam being used progressively to fight against imperialism and to fight on behalf of the oppressed (Iran has throughout its history lent support to oppressed peoples and their leaders such as the Black Panther Party)

I support women’s rights. I also expect more details surrounding these current events to continue to come out in due time. but first and foremost I will not criticize that which is in the crosshairs of US imperialism. I lend my full support to the Iranian government in its struggle against imperialism, and as a matter of secondary importance I lend support to those within Iran seeking to reform it in a non-western, non-capitalist way.


perhaps so, but playing devil’s advocate, there was lots of left wing aesthetics being toted around in support of US proxies in Syria (Rojava, Democratic Confederalism bullshit, feminism, so much so that they even attracted left-wing political podcaster Brace Belden of TrueAnon which is the most lucrative Patreon podcast to this day. … the CIA’s Special Activities Division is pretty smart these days I will say)



Beijing needs to finally finish the decolonization of HK … these pro-British freaks need to be in jail


the claim isn’t that the progressive bourgeoise is funding socialists, the claim is that they’re funding liberalism


optimism is your revolutionary duty. pessimism stands in opposition to victory.


this demonstrates how seldom you speak with construction workers, I’ve found that my construction buddies are far more receptive towards marxism than my well-educated liberal peers who I fucking hate



that the bourgeoisie has constructed artificial controlled opposition within the progressive movement, similar to the Congress for Cultural Freedom
