So there are a few things that I want to cover today. It has to do with #Cuba🇨🇺 & the new #FamilyCodeLaw #CodigoDeLasFamilias #CodigoSi & why the Extreme Right Wing of the #CubanDissidents & #CubanExiles are against it #LGBTQRightsAreHumanRights #CubanConstitution #Socialism
So first what is #ElCodigoDeLasFamilias Or the #FamilyCodeInCuba. First we need a small lesson in #Socialism. #Marxism teaches that we need to use #Science & Common Sense to advance society.
Common sense says if you want a #Democracy to advance and flourish, you need to improve it with scientific precision. So, #Marxist countries make it very easy to have what is known in America as a #ConstitutionalConvention. Aka whenever they come up with something better for

This horrifying wreckage washed up on our beach in Surfside FL today, burned out, still smelling of gasoline and leaving a trail of ashes in the water. 100% Cuban refugees trying to make it to freedom. Almost certainly they died, prob overnight. (1/5)
The boat was made of basic construction materials -- random building rebar was used to make the frame, with a blue tarp (the kind NGOs distribute after hurricanes) to keep some of the water out. Here you can see the "rudder": some old pipes thrown together. (2/5)
I don't know what was most horrifying about this. Whether the old truck engine, with its exposed RADIATOR in the front ... (3/5)

@themcguills @uksciencechief One more reason I don't associate #Socialism with the Democrats. So sad since I had great hopes for the #Progressive wing. No more. They side with the warmongering necons

"I'm not so sure he's mad, Father. Just a little devious in his sanity."

The ruling-class, appearing mad, and might possibly be, are willing to sacrifice the lives of millions to secure dominance over the world's resources.

1/ I'm convinced that the problem with the Left accomplishing anything is that the Left is NOT FAR ENOUGHT LEFT. The Right does not have this problem. Look at those fuckers living in Fascism.
2/ The Right is SO FAR TO THE RIGHT but any time the Left tries to do anything they get called Socialists. SOCIALISTS! Even though the Left in the US is CENTRIST. Fuck that shit!!! Do you want to know how to solve this problem?
3/ The Left needs to go SO FAR TO THE LEFT. Fuck compromise, fuck staying in the center. How are we supposed to accomplish anything in the middle when one side is so far to the right and the other side is in the middle? You can only compromise to the right.

The recognition of Sosyalist Eşitlik Grubu as the section of the ICFI in Turkey is a historic advance in the fight for Trotskyism and the building of the World Party of Socialist Revolution. 1/ #Socialism #Trotskyism

Kids, don't skip middle school. All four Presidents on Mount Rushmore were liberals. Image
2/ Kevin Sorbo must hate public school, public roads, 40-hour workweeks and investment in power grids, etc. I'm not a #socialist, but I believe we've gained many good things from #socialism and the #Labor movement. Image
3/ Kevin Sorbo, Candace Owens, Sean Hannity, Madison Cawthorn, Lauren Boebert, Alex Jones, Ted Nugent, Charlie Kirk, Kirstie Alley, etc. never completed college. So they can't understand how vaccines beat smallpox, etc, and how diseases literally go viral. ImageImageImageImage

We, who long for a better life, now need to understand what has been stolen again from us, & where we actually are.

Far, far too many people still secretly hope for the Labour Party to rise again, or even more bizarrely, for a "progressive alliance" - whatever the fuck that is.
Reality needs to bite. Because the vast majority of us have done sweet fuck all in the last two years to change the terms of trade, we need to face the fact of another two terms of Tory government.

Because that is the reality, not the myth that most of us nurture.
If we want #Socialism , the mighty oak #Socialism , with #SHADEFORALL , we are going to have to grow it from the acorns that the bravest and best amongst us HAVE ALREADY created. There IS no messiah, no magic leader - that is a wastrel myth.

#THREAD

On 16thth April, news broke that a park named after William Gladstone could be rebranded “Diane Abbott Park” by a @UKLabour council, “as part of a slavery review.”

This thread is about truth, the culture war, the UK's broken news media, & the amplification of hate.
On 16th April, Boris Johnson's former employer, the non-dom billionaire-owned Telegraph, along with the non-dom billionaire-owned Daily Mail, broke the story.

Both claimed Gladstone Park could be renamed 'Diane Abbott Park' by a Labour Council "as part of their slavery review".
Both newspapers describe school pupils "as young as 5" "were briefed on the killing of George Floyd & 'systematic racism.'"

Brent Council's Tory representatives predictably "slammed the attempts to rewrite history", & described it "as an attempt at 'indoctrination'."

"Today, when the left’s political timidity and #authoritarianism has stripped it of all credibility as a democratic political force, it is more significant that the right also finds it very difficult to resist the lure of #vulnerability claims."

"The old imperial myth of Britain standing up to foreign tyrants is once again being wheeled out in respect of Ukraine, but the context has changed. The critical point ... is that the fear-mongering style of politics developed during the Cold War...is all conservatives have left"
"All the old commitments, once proclaimed by conservatives, to traditional virtues, such as faith, family, sacrifice, duty, deference to hierarchy, have decayed in practice into a fear-driven politics in which liberals, socialists and foreigners are constructed as threats ..."

Just so we're clear: the Soviet Union did not have a communist economy. It had a state monopoly capitalist economy. The Bolsheviks killed Russian communism in the 1920s when they took over the soviets and centralized power. (1/3) #socialism #Communism
Whether they acted from the best of intentions, whether they had no realistic alternative, doesn't change the outcome. We evaluate a state or a society by its practical relations, not its ideology. (2/3)
Communism should mean: workers owning the means of production. Nothing less. By this measure, Stalin was the greatest anticommunist in history, and Lenin was his enabler. (3/3) #socialism #Communism

A sincere, no BS, friendly message (and strategy) to all #StarmerOut folks.

Firstly, there's no disagreement between us. Starmer has proven one of the most ingenuine politicians in our history. He has repeatedly rowed back on his leadership pledges & sentiments and proven untrustworthy in his words and actions as leader.
2/
He has been a babe in the woods. Policy illiterate and not particularly interested in ideas. Electorally inept, taking the hand of his elders when he's lost and then caught in the headlights when the strategy handed to him doesn't work.

In an Address to the US Congress on 13th November 1945, Britain's new PM, Clement Attlee, directly addressed concerns around #socialism & #freedom that remain salient today, & which are mobilised by the Right to fuel a culture war pioneered by Steve Bannon & Right-libertarians.
"I think that some people over here imagine that the Socialists are out to destroy freedom, freedom of the individual, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, & the freedom of the Press."
"They are wrong; the Labour Party is in the tradition of freedom-loving movements which have always existed in our country, but freedom has to be striven for in every generation, and those who threaten it are not always the same."

In remarks reminiscent of the darkest days of the #eugenics movement, @CDCDirector said that the fact that #COVID19 predominantly kills people who are “unwell to begin with” is “encouraging.”

"The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75 percent, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities," Walensky said, "so really these are people who are unwell to begin with, and yes, really encouraging news in the context of Omicron."

Walensky’s comments were condemned by doctors, scientists and advocates for the disabled as an embrace of eugenics by the Biden administration.

If you need convincing that #Socialism is in fact the gospel of envy, all you need to do is look at the replies to ANY @elonmusk tweet. The socialists will not rest until everything Musk has is redistributed to them.
What I find interesting is that until recent times, @elonmusk was apolitical. It’s my guess that he viewed politics as nothing more that wasteful, anti-intellectual mud slinging.
But I suspect, based on his recent tweets, that he may view navigating the American political landscape equally as challenging as a trip to Mars.

"We are on a renewed mission to defeat #socialism.”
(Theresa May).

“I am going to fight #capitalism even if it kills me. It is wrong that people like you should be comfortable & well fed while all around you people are starving.”
(Sylvia Pankhurst).

#JustSayin
During WWI, Sylvia Pankhurst was horrified to see her mother, Emmeline, & sister Christabel become enthusiastic supporters of the war drive & campaign in favour of military conscription. She was opposed to the war, for which she was publicly attacked.

Blair would have hated her.
Sylvia's organisation attempted to defend the interests of women in the poorer parts of London. It set up "cost-price" restaurants to feed the hungry without the taint of charity. It also established a toy factory to give work to women who were unemployed due to the war.
