The problem is not work, but the conditions under which we are working. Like Marx says, under capitalism the worker is alienated from his labor.

This is the west. There is another map which shows how all the most violent and militarized borders are along these lines. Eastern Europe (war in Ukraine), inter-Korean border, Mediterranean (grave for countless migrants), Mexico-US border (drug wars and migration crisis).

Wikipedia is based in the United States, which means that it is controlled by the US government one way or another. So the only option is to create alternatives.

Yeah for sure, most of the world is lining up behind China now.

Not exactly. Most countries are trying to stay neutral between China and US, and China is fine with that. Only the United States want other countries to pick sides, and start a new cold war between “democracy or authoritarianism”. Thats failing completely because China isnt playing their game.

Japan and India too. But even the five of them together cant threaten China when it comes to a war for Taiwan or the South China Sea. So in effect they are just isolating themselves from the rest of the world, and accelerating their decline.

So muricans want to start an undeclared war against China, but still whine about Pearl Harbor after almost a century. Makes total sense.

The articles that are linked are not easy to read but I guess they are targeted towards someone who is more enlightened about the broader context.

I think this is generally a big red flag. If there is an important point, then it should be possible to explain it in a way that everyone understands. If they link that to someone who is new, they might do it on purpose to avoid any discussion.

I read the introduction (in Spanish), and its extremely interesting. Basically the author lays out an argument that the “Shining Path” was a reactonary movement, not revolutionary nor Marxist. Unfortunately I wont have time to contribute to the translation.

Very well explained. I think a lot more of these false narratives will be revealed in the near future, as the Washington empire collapses. Afghanistan was a clear defeat for united states, soon they will have to retreat from Syria and Iraq. Then “Israel” will easily be defeated. Maybe Taiwan next.

This must be the same journalist, lying in a ditch to make China look bad. By the way, how come he only talks to prisoners? Is he afraid that normal people might say something positive about the government? Pretty telling that no newspaper employs this clueless propagandist.

Please dont give clicks to the imperialist media, use an archive link like archive.vn instead. I’m not even gonna talk about the content of the article, its so biased and lacking facts that I couldnt finish it.

You are right, it is not a communist source, but it is from Iran, a neighbor of Afghanistan. Clearly they have a different perspective, but I dont think we shouldnt dismiss it just because of that. If we only consider sources that agree with our perspective or our ideology, we will easily get stuck in an information bubble, and ignore reality.


The UN hasnt declared that a genocide is happening in Xinjiang. By your logic, that makes them equal to Holocaust deniers.

Then the United Nations are holocaust deniers. Fact is that no international court or UN organ has even investigated the alleged genocide. Innocent until proven guilty.

The United States were defeated by the Taliban, simple as that. The retreat was completely botched by the US military, they left a large base in the middle of the night and didnt even tell the Afghan military. Literally running away at night. The Afghan army also didnt get paid for some months. Meanwhile the Taliban allowed enemies to go home or join them (amnestie).

All in all the situation is pretty similar to the US defeat in Vietnam, but at this time the empire is really collapsing. Expect similar events in another country soon.

Its not like anyone (or any institution) would voluntarily admit that they participated. And the US government is surely also interested to sweep this under the rug.

Thats because wars are not won by money or weapons, but by people. If one side refuses to surrender and keeps fighting despite losses, it cant be defeated. Thats how China pushed back against the United States in the Korean war, at a time when the US was vastly superior in terms of weapons. Its a similar situation in Palestine, where the people have refused to surrender to the occupation.

Edit: to determine victory or defeat, what matters is whether each side achieved its objectives. In case of the United States, their stated objectives in 2001 were to wipe out the Taliban, and establisha liberal democracy in Afghanistan. That obviously failed completely. The Taliban’s objectives were to overthrow the puppet government, and drive out the invaders, both of which they achieved. So its clearly a victory for the Taliban, and defeat for the US.
