The fact that some people (mostly western leftists) think Russia’s encroachment towards Ukraine is part of an imperialist campaign seems crazy to me. EDIT: And the fact that the people who propagate these wild ideas cite Dugin’s unhinged writings as evidence makes it clear to me that they are grasping at straws.
Yoga is great. My only gripe with it is that yoga and meditation are frequently associated with the divine in India because of which the “yoga industry” is full of charlatan hacks who try to amass a following kinda like how Gandhi did. If you look at this list of modern yoga gurus on Wikipedia, many of the recent ones are hacks as well. I can only speak of the ones that are alive because I don’t know about the older ones. Yoga (and ayurveda) is also the pride of Hindu fascists who like to bask in the false glory of a mythologised past where yoga (and ayurveda) was a cure to a multitude of ailments, an art which now has supposedly been forgotten about due to the rampaging colonisation by Western ideas. They take the popularity of yoga in the West as affirmation of the idea that India of the past was the most advanced civilisation and other idealist notions like that.
Mostly though if you go to a normal gym which has yoga classes, it is usually fine and normal. But there are a ton of “foundation” run by aforementioned hacks. My neighbours tried to indoctrinate me into one when my parents told them I was depressed. It was extremely stupid.

If you look at Mastodon and Mastodon adjacent services, the mainstream is full of self-righteous imperialist liberals but despite that there is still a healthy section of genuine anti-imperialist instances which thrive and provide safe spaces even though there is some degree of ostracisation. So that tweet is not surprising at all. I am more surprised to see westerners not having brainrotten takes.
Western propaganda does not give a shit that his forces (with help from China and USSR of course) were what drove away the Japanese invaders. US, before invading Korea, did not shed a single drop of blood in the fight for freedom. Instead they reinstated the opportunists who collaborated with the Japanese colonisers back into positions of administration and authority.
Now they tell you that “North Koreans think Kim Il Sung is a god who can fly” and other inane bullshit like that. Everytime someone nips deep in NATO kool-aid opines about DPRK I wanna clock them in the face.
My opinion is that the whole thing was made up. Probably they were just considering imaginary worst case scenarios. There is no currently AI in the world that will destroy comms networks or kill their supervisor to maximise some numerical score unless any safeguards were intentionally not built into it.
