I just feel so lost right now. Almost everybody that I like hates LGBT+ people and all the liberals, neocons and other Atlanticists are wrapping themselves in the rainbow flag. How has it helped LGBT+ people in Russia, who are now villified as pro-NATO agents and sympathizers? Are gay Yemenis supposed the cheer the gay drone pilot that murdered their families? Are trans Venezuelans supposted to cheer now that trans North Americans can join the imperialist military? Is somebody who just got thrown into homelessness by their parents for coming out supposed to feel better that funds that could have been used to build housing for them were plowed into regime change ops and military boondoggles instead? How can they call themselves the "new civil rights movement" but be pro-empire and pro-austerity? I hate them, I hate their "open society" and "liberal democracy", I don't want them on my side and I would thank them by finding a way to stab them in the back.

Yeah. I think it's dialectical to think about it this way? You find the universal in the particular, and the combinations of which at different stages create higher forms of unity as opposed to atomization.

I think these Icelandic artists, Hatari, "get it." The music and performance is queer anti-capitalism, it's very avant-garde and extreme, and they did a video with a Palestinian queer artist – a stateless person – who is waving a Palestinian flag around and singing about how he won't be erased. It's interesting because it's a direct attack on the pink Zionist stuff where the Israeli state associates itself with liberal, pwogwessive values. "We've got to drop a bomb on this gay guy for gay rights!"

I think Zionism has also become an identity. If you attack it, then you've triggered my Zionist identity or whatever, which obscures the fact that it's machine that destroys people and takes their land. A queer Palestinian doesn't exist in Zionism, is incompatible with it, and is to be destroyed.

>Spanish rapper Pablo Hasel's arrest has sparked protests in major cities, with critics calling his prosecution an assault on free speech. The artist was convicted for insulting the monarchy and glorifying terrorism.

>Thousands of protesters took to the streets across Spanish cities on Tuesday evening demanding the release of a rapper arrested by police over a series of tweets in a controversial free speech case.


>Police in riot gear stormed a university 150 kilometers (90 miles) west of Barcelona on Tuesday morning and arrested rapper Pablo Hasel, who had barricaded himself inside the campus to avoid jail.


>Later in the day, around 2,000 people rallied in central Barcelona waving banners and placards that said: "Freedom for Pablo Hasel."


>A handful of protesters also set trash cans on fire, erected street barricades, and threw stones, bottles, and firecrackers at the police, chanting slogans such as "Death to the Spanish regime."


>Video footage on Twitter also showed police charging at protesters hurling objects at them, trying to disperse the crowd, in some cases using batons and foam projectiles.


>Several stores and banks were damaged, and police stations in the Catalan capital were vandalized, with windows smashed and spray-paints on the walls.


>The Catalan regional police Mossos d'Escuadra said on Twitter that protesters burned motorbikes and bins, creating barricades and blocking streets in Barcelona, adding that 14 people had been arrested.

Favorite Spaniards:
Phineas Fisher. She is famous for hacking spyware companies used by governments, Hacking the catalonian cops, Hacking the Turkish government to donate the money to the YPG and for hacking an Offshore bank, leaking everything in each instance and writing much documentation making hacking easy.

>Phineas Phisher, who has previously claimed responsibility for hacking the notorious cyber-mercenary groups Gamma Group and Hacking Team, claims to be a private individual whose stated goals are anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-surveillance. Some suspect Phineas Phisher is a nation-state sponsored hacking group, but there is no way to know.

>The hacking tools used in the 2016 bank heist were off-the-shelf penetration testing tools like PowerShell and Mimikatz. This means that if Phineas Phisher can do it, any number of modestly skilled attackers could as well. This makes the Cayman National attack a case study in how not to secure your networks (or how to rob a bank, depending on your point of view).

Would you work with real ancaps (not crypto-fash larpers) in destroying the state? Even the most radical of them I've seen say their ancap utopia is being something where they live in extremely decentralized autonomous zones. Keeping aside the fact that capitalism always produces monopolies they're at least against the government.

Oh I know, which is why I disregard the not true Socialism nonsense as just that, nonsense. It is Socialists job to resolve contradictions as they come to us since there isn't this premade idea of an ideal Socialist society, unless you are an Anarchist or sophist. Markets won't disappear overnight, money won't disappear overnight, wages won't disappear overnight. Communism is a historical process of resolving contradictions. The current class dynamic is a current one that won't be done away with by the flick of a wand. State Capitalism is the only solution as it made itself known to us in the 20th century, beyond that it's a case by case basis that Socialists are supposed to resolve.

Why is this word a thing? English already has a native gender-neutral synonym for "latino": latin. You know, like in Latin America.

It makes zero sense in Spanish, phonetic and grammar wise. From the point of view of a spanish-speaker the word latinx is impossible to pronounce as written.

It's also retarded how woke liberals use the adjective "latino" as to mean non-white (I know colonial racial classifications about whiteness are bs, just bear with me for a sec), when there are plenty of caucasian South Americans, plus of course the majority of the population of Portugal, Spain, France and Italy who are after all, latin peoples as well.

The purpose is, quite simply, to infantilize and covertly denigrate people of Latin American ancestry as backwards primitives that are unable to use "modern" terminology to even describe themselves. The fact is that Romance languages like Spanish and Portuguese are gendered languages, and this upsets modern retards that are somehow convinced that this is a patriarchal attack on whatever idiotic nonstandard pronoun they have chosen for themselves.

The second easiest way to detect a useful idiot is to ask them their opinion on the usage of the word latinx (the easiest way is to see if they list any pronouns in their bio). My ex-girlfriend (who herself is from Colombia) uses it regularly, and lo and behold she thinks that burning down a Wendy's is praxis.

Agreed. People using Latinx are just (and I hate this term) virtue signalling how progressive they are. Its a shibboleth that people who masturbate themselves over how progressive they are use.

I would say that these same types don't actually engage in REAL progressivism and improving the lives of marginalized people, but that would be an unfair generalization.

Fuck off with this degenerate nonsense. In socialism you get days off and shit. AES countries don't work people to the bone. Yeah it sucks that people have to work at all, but don't confuse the batshit insane level of work demanded in the west (higher than under feudalism and even some slave societies) for the actual amount required to keep society running. If we work for the people instead of for ever-growing profits it will become apparent very quickly just how much in excess of necessity we are currently producing and it will shock even the most strident anti-work dipshits how much free time people gain.

No, which is exactly the point. It is a form of work, or at least labor, but it does not seem as such precisely because it is fulfilling. Ideally all forms of labor would be this way but I suspect that is impossible, in which case 'work' in the modern sense should be minimized as much as possible. This is something you can do in your day to day life (and in fact probably already do) even without living under socialism.

>My point stands to this comment to I think, most everyone who exists conception of work is so far removed than what it could be in said society that it is largely irrelivent


Far removed yes, and the ideal form of labor that I (and Marx really) talked about is a long way away. However the discussion is an important propaganda tool because it motivates people to get up off their asses and fight for a society which isn't alienating. In that sense it is very much relevant as a concept.

I think we are talking past each other because I leargely agree. for me this is a linguistic issue only. I.e. Is it labour? absolutely, many things in our personal lives can be labour, I know it is a meme but 'emotional labour' is also an interesting concept. is it 'work'? not in my book.

This thread will be dedicated to the upcoming Feb 7 elections in Ecuador.

The three main contenders are
Andres Arauz (Correista, so socdem but antiimperialism pilled)
Guillermo Lasso (literal comprador porky)
Yaku Perez (cringe indigenous idpol candidate)

The stakes of these elections, besides governing a country of 17 million people:

-Possibility of further breaking the blockade in Venezuela
-Some benefits for Cuba
-Possibility to definitely affirm the rebirth of leftism in Latin America as a force in ascent
-(Maybe) Some more support for Peruvian leftist candidates in the upcoming elections in April

And last but not least the possibility of making some Porklets somewhere shake in their boots as stated by Bloomberg in this article:

both the US and Soviet Union had been stagnating since the early 70s when the post war boom officially ended, the soviets started with a smaller share of the world economy so they collapsed quicker. Stuff like the Pink Tide actually did do a huge blow to the Monroe Doctrine, or at least exposed its weaknesses, remember that the US had been trying to overthrow Chavismo in Venezuela since at least 2002 and have never succeeded.
