It seems the Armenian Army is "asking" the President to resign. Is this another coup? Also is it me or all these coups are a sign of an instability of some sorts in the world right now?

According to this account what is playing out is a struggle between Pro Nato and Pro Russian factions of the bourgeoisie, and it seems Russia is losing badly.
If Armenia joins Nato their encirclement will be complete. (and probably they will be forced to strength en even more the alliance with China)

It isn't necessary to "critically support" or pick a side in every struggle. Sometimes the only thing that can reasonably be done is to sit back and watch as trends far outside of our control unravel, particularly as we're missing critical information. "Critical support" without some kind of action towards solidarity (however modest) is just cheerleading, and cheerleading most of the time is at best useless and at worst selfish and detrimental (perhaps even in ways which aren't obvious).

That being said, if you're not a retarded Yankee CIA-controlled opposition leftist then the correct position when it comes to struggles between US Imperialism vs lesser Russian or Chinese imperialism is revolutionary defeatism. Whatever the intentions of Russia or China, geopolitical multipolarity is a net positive thing for communists and progressive anti-imperialists globally. This particular move seems to be a US-orchestrated attempt at encircling Russia, strengthening US Empire and weakening multipolarity in the caucuses and middle east. This will have detrimental consequences for communists/anti-imperialist forces in the region, even if they aren't immediate or obvious. If you're not in a position to actually affect conditions on the ground in some feasible, even indirect way, then "critical support", as said, isn't useful here. We should definitely be *hoping*, if it is the case that this is a pro-NATO coup, that it fails and that pro-Russian forces/segments of the bourgeoisie succeed.

Burgerland post.

Radical Liberalism, or radlibs, as we call them, is a form of liberal politics which emerged in the early 2010s, starting from blogs and college campuses and eventually spreading its hyperwoke culture into mainstream corporations, movies/tv, etc. Radical liberalism is often associated with the "millennial" generation, especially upper-middle class college graduates and also “identity politics”. Contrary to right wing beliefs, this is mostly an organic cultural shift due to the fact that college graduates make more money on average and are also more liberal on average, so corporations becoming work is actually just the result of normal market forces responding to the consumer preferences of the people who actually have money now, which is the mostlyl liberal knowledge workers.

My argument is that Millennial politics is mostly motivated by a backlash against the Bush era and neoconservatism, but this backlash actually imitates the thing it's lashing against very closely.

In the early 2000s, the culture was very different. You couldn’t criticize Bush, or criticize the war, without someone jumping down your throat, calling you a faggot prick who hated America, hated freedom and was a terrorist sympathizer or Saddam lover. Famously, the dixie chicks, a country group got shitcanned by conservatives after one of them said something mildly against the Iraq war while on tour. Overnight, thousands of people protested, sperged out, smashed their CD’s in the streets, and one guy even rolled over their CD’s with a steamroller.

Millennials who got this imprinted on them as children, teens, or young adults, learned – this is how we deal with people politically. Effective, isn’t it? According to these people, the problem conservatives have with cancel culture isn’t that people couldn’t be hounded out of polite society at the end of a pitchfork, only that they were on the wrong end of the pitchfork – that the culture had shifted from a post 9/11 conservatism so that people other than “conservative white males” could flex their power, unlike before.

Wokeness is a religion. It’s a religion for a new secular age. As urbanization and modernity erode traditional religious beliefs, humans still have the needs of religion, to find meaning in the world. Wokeness isn’t entirely political, although it overlaps with politics. It’s individualistic, it is more about feeling like a good person individually than any form of prPost too long.

Because A. American or B. spends to much time online and has American Mindset Disase. Culturally they have a absoloutely fuckd view of women. even what others see as bad in there own cultures is nothing compared to those people. They see women as nothing but slabs of meat to be fucked, incapable of seeing them as there equals. In the american male mind the women is but a simpleton so her consent is not important when it means pleasing The Individual.

What would be the consequences of Iran getting nuclear weapons?
My first idea would be the burgers and israel would try to either give the Saudis bombs or go with the NK plan of hitting everything that can be a nuke and then invade. Would the Euros allow the US and Israel to risk a hot war?

Whats leftypols feelings on the waco siege? Ill start.

I know its something that Libright love to go on about because it has all the things they love like guns, killing feds and fucking children but Im seeing a bunch of extremely cringe takes that refuse to even acknowledge the horrible shit that the ATF did and how enormous their fuck up was. How can we ever expect the average amerifag to ever sympathize with our historic instances of the feds killing ours when we wont even acknowledge the monstrous behavior from the federal government?

I wouldn't for a second doubt the ATF would set the fire. The ATF is one of the most schizo parts of the US government, and is comprised of:
>Law N Order True Believers who think they're Making A Difference
>Muh 2nd Amendment types trying to sabotage gun control at the level of enforcement and policy
>Pigs On Steroids who realize they can get away with killing people more easily if they're in a role that gets to say they deal with illegal machineguns, etc.
>Petty Tyrant paper pushing bureaucrats who just enjoy fucking with people for not correctly checking box 25-D of their 1094F paperwork before attempting to use their 1024x768 tax stamped gun on a 19A shooting range
The ATF has very little oversight within a relatively narrow jurisdiction and pretty heavily politically charged internally. They were already caught lying multiple times about their actions. One ATF agent deciding to just go with pragmatic-psycho even without the authorization of others isn't exactly an unreasonable scenario.

I’ll tell you the truth, I had a long conversation with my parents where they more or less called me out for being a fucking coward that has beliefs I do absolutely nothing with. And they’re right, having communist beliefs and sitting with them is fucking cowardly, and I’m sick of being this way, I want to make a real difference, a communist who does nothing should have no right to call himself a communist. I’ just looked up US communist parties but the list was so long, can anyone narrow down a decent party that’s actually helping people?
