Thread: #XR isnt about climate

Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism

XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"

Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"

The land of Lao-Tzu (rhyme, rhythm, peace), Taoism (compassion, moderation, humility), and Confucianism (piety, social harmony, individual development) was seized by the strangest import to #China ever: #Marxism from #Germany via #Russia. mises.org/blog/horrors-c…
How many died as a result of persecutions and the policies of #MaoZedong? Perhaps you care to guess? Many people over the years have attempted to guess, but they have always underestimated. It could be as high as #100million or more.
The horror was foreshadowed in a bloody civil war following the #SecondWorldWar. After some #9million people died, the #communists emerged victorious in 1949, with #MaoZedong as the ruler.

So #marxism is trending thanks to a bunch of hard right boot lickers who think Marxists advocate Trump style protectionism (it doesn’t, nor did Marx).
Because many people probably don’t know what #Marxism is, thanks to the ignorant pompous pronouncements of redbaiting buffoons of both liberal and conservative stripes, I intend to tweet a few basics here. Please feel to share with anyone you need to educate.
The basic premise of #Marxism is that a capitalist economy needs to continually grow in orrder to function. Because the business cycle is a real thing, that’s impossible and so Capitalism repeatedly goes through periods of crisis and collapse.

@_attlee #socialism #Marxism Presumably you and Ms. Attlee are college graduates and possibly even possess graduate degrees. Yet your and her question betrays a shocking lack of education, comparable to someone asking where's the error in Ptolemaic astronomy.
I will first quote Marx on what the labor theory of value is and then offer two sets of refutations of it. (BTW, I use value and price as equivalent terms.)
WHAT MARX SAID: “The value of one commodity is to the value of any other, as the labour-time necessary for the production of the one is to that necessary for the production of the other.” [Google this to confirm it.]

Socialists do not realize that capitalism’s privately owned means of production benefit everyone who buys the products of those means of production. Thus privately owned auto plants, steel mills, and iron mines benefit the buyers of automobiles. Likewise for all other products.
The socialists’ mentality is trapped in the Dark Ages, when production was not yet for the market but for the personal use of the producers, an arrangement that the socialists seem to think was superior, since it was “production for use” rather than “production for profit.”
Under capitalism, the private owners of means of production see profitable opportunities and on their own initiative use their means of production to produce things that others, often millions and tens of millions of others, want to buy.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST FOR MSTD (#MARXISM/#SOCIALISM THOUGHT DISORDER)
Does the person believe that in the absence of minimum-wage and pro-union legislation, the greed of businessmen and capitalists would drive wages to or below the point of minimum subsistence?
Does the person believe that in the absence of maximum-hours laws, the greed of businessmen and capitalists would increase the length of the working day to an unendurable length, e.g., 18 hours?

#Socialism #Marxism The asset-owning billionaires work for me and everyone else with any money whatever to spend and which the billionaires want to earn, because to earn that money, they have to produce products that ordinary people want to buy.
#Capitalism and its market economy are far more democratic than #democracy. Under the latter, countless distinct choices are scooped up and buried under just one choice, once every several years: Do you want candidate A or candidate B? (Under #socialism, it’s A or don’t vote.)
Under #capitalism every dollar spent for every distinct good or service is a vote for that good or service. To continue being supplied, it must receive enough votes to cover its costs and a competitive rate of profit. If it doesn’t, its production will be cut back.

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

@AOC's manager caught funneling money into private accounts.
#Socialism
Those at the top ALWAYS promote equality but enrich themselves.

#Bolschevism, #Marxism, #Lennonism, #Communisim and #Socialism do NOT work.

2.
@realDonaldTrump supporters get called NAZI's all the time but Nazism was just another form of Socialism.

National Socialists = NAZI is those who love their country and promote government control of everything.
Food for example so it call all be distributed even
3.
@POTUS is a Nationalist that promotes the people control the government and have control of their own lives.

@BernieSanders promotes communism.
Yes Bernie they did have beautifull buildings. All built by SLAVE labour that cost millions of lives

"Why #SocialMovements Matter", a thread.

It's been a long time since I've written a whole #book in longhand. 1999 to be exact, under the trees in the Botanic Gardens @NBGIreland.

whysocialmovementsmatter.com, 30% off with code RLIJUNE18 Why Social Movements Matter book cover
My handwriting's got worse in the meantime, doing so much more by keyboard and screen. It's still a physically different experience, more thoughtful, more physically creative. There's a different kind of feedback as you see your writing change.
"Why Social Movements Matter" was an unintentional book. @GeoffreyPleyers and the remarkable @lecollege_em at @FondationMSH made it possible for me to spend a month just researching and writing - which is an incredible privilege.

(1) The population is being sedated with a variety of #PSYOPS under different guises

Here r some memes and "concepts" of Psychological Operations employed to pacify #POTUS' base

#WWG1WGA #QAnon #Q #SealedIndictments #MilitaryTribunals #Guantanamo #MAGA-#Trains & #Conductors
(2) I am not implying that the #WWG1WGA #TrumpTrain crowd are bad people. Not at all. I am on their side.

I am simply maintaining that they are being "suckered into inaction" via a variety of psychological mechanisms.

Once again - would love for .@StevePieczenik to comment ....
(3) because this op has the complexity of similar #PSYOPS in the past & these ops do have "fingerprints."

That being said, while the right and conservatives engage in a "vicious battle of Twitter "Meme-fare," the Marxists are organizing on the street level ....

I'll make this one quick because you might turn off you TV/Computer/Phone before I even get to the end of the thread. Of course the content of television programming has an effect on the way people think, but what about the signals.
How ironic that the old cliche adage so many mothers said to their children, "Don't sit too close to the TV" actually has quite a bit of merit in light of these patents and the claims they make about how television broadcasts signals effect your brain. I know my mom had no idea.
So, not only do you have to worry about how the content of what you are watching will effect your thoughts, you actually have to consider there may be some less obvious physical manipulation in the actual signals coming from the tube. steemit.com/science/@anarc…

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Kajsa Ekis Ekman (KEE) wrote last week about Kristoffer Johansson who will be moved from class 1 security men’s prison to class 2 security women’s prison. There are no class 1 security women’s prisons in Sweden. Take a guess why. #peaktrans #radicalfeminism #marxism #swepol
We can no longer coddle men’s emotions. Kristoffer Johansson raped, smeared his sperm on his victim, murdered and butchered her. He then feigned concern and joined the search party for her body. The butchering of Vatchareeya Bangsuan is a part of men’s terror against women.
Vatchareeya’s murder is a terror that women grow up with and is normalized by societal institutions. It is not random that he was a man and she was a woman. That Kristoffer’s emotions has higher priority than women’s lives is a natural consequence of institutionalized patriarchy.

1) #QAnon #SaveTheKids

I have been Twitter-silent of late, waiting for the next shoe to drop…and there are a closet full of shoes. It was a needed break as it has been a struggle watching the cabal continue to walk the streets.
2) The breathless screams about yesterday's #TreasonSummit warrant an immediate reply. The best place to start is to ask WHY? Why are the political left and the #MSM/#LSM claiming the Trump-Putin meeting to be treasonous? What is the basis?
3) Did you hear concerns of #Treason when #Traitor44 went around the world on his apology tour, disparaging the United States? They PRAISED #Obama for bowing to leaders of foreign nations & ridicule #POTUS for NOT BOWING in submission, as if we are subject to their kingdoms.

The capitalist argument that there will always be a need for garbage-men and toilet cleaners, is very telling on the issue of racism. Racism is not just affecting the ones living next to us, but effects trans-nationally. #marxism #racism #capitalism #intersectionality
Racism is a cornerstone of outsourcing labor to the lower classes and the lower ethnicities both within the exploiting country, and outside in economically weaker countries. In capitalism, each economic class, ethnicity class, and sex class is assigned labor roles.
Racism serves to keep the people within and ethnicity class in their assigned labor roles. Just the same as misogyny serves to keep women in assigned labor roles (overlapping in ethnicity and the same sex).

1. Story of Mr. X "architect of #ColdWar"
The advises of Mr X to The US will
always be helpful to us from #JNU to #Pakistan to #Kathua

This is the STORY of a person #Lost_in_the_pages_of_history

I PROMISE by the end of the #RightFactsThread you'll have #Goosebumps 🙏🙏
2. This person is known to the world as #Mr_X for decades thanks to an ARTICLE he wrote in @ForeignAffairs (july 1946) with the pen name of Mr. X

His real name was #GeorgeKenan the US ambassador to erstwhile Soviet Union in 1940s

The article was an excerpt of his LONG TELEGRAM
3. The #LongTelegram as it's known was shot back in The US gave 2 things:

👉 Geopolitical reality post WWII
👉he proposed that the US should adopt the strategy of “containment”—not conventional warfare

His other advises in his #LongTelegram r directly relevant in Indian context

1. #QAnon's drops can require some time for personal analysis and input from the many good people digging. Here's my summary of key intel from the last week+ (1/19 - 1/27) of #Q drops. For Twitter efficiency, I will provide the direct link to the related posts as I review.
2. Chuckie Schumer was put on notice by #POTUS that his role in #Treason is known. Did you notice how # Schumer sulked away to the corner after his failed shutdown effort? 8ch.net//qresearch/res…
3. Read this whole #Q post as it has so much meaning. "Will Sessions drop the Hammer?" HAMMER refers to the very secretive NSA spying program. The same tools used to spy on #Trump will be their undoing. 8ch.net//greatawakenin…
