1. Today is the anniversary of the start of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, the great workers uprising against Stalinism and for workers control. As one member of a workers council put it: "The time when the bosses decided our fait is over".

2. The death of Stalin in 1953 kicked of a wave of uprisings against the horrors of the Stalinist bureaucratic apparatus stretching from Soviet prison camps to East Germany to Czechoslovakia. These revolts were bathed in blood and annihilated.

3. But they forced the Stalinist apparatus, which had by this point butchered so many compliance they had lost their fear of the working class, into a defensive, reformist posture. In 1956 Kruschev admitted (some) of the errors of Stalin.

The fact that people think differently is one of the coolest things in the world to me. I think in basically pure words with a running narration in my head but I have friends who think in pure images, friends who think in abstract thoughts,

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
friends whose thoughts are combinations of all of the above in various ways. And like as best as I've ever read (and I'd love to know if I was wrong) there's not like massive differences in brain wave patterns or whatever between people who think

differently, it just sort of happens. I really like the model of equality where people are equal because they're all utterly uniquely and thus incomparable and the fact that we think differently (I think WAY differently than my twin sister for

This is the greatest gerrymander op of the 21st century. Every detail is more mindlbasting than the last. It is the mindflayer of electoral maps, a work of pure artistry that transcends the mortal realm and appears as a work of the divine spirit.

CALUMET IS IN A DISTRICT WITH FUCKING DANVILLE. ENGLEWOOD IS IN A DISTRICT WITH BOURBONNAIS. LOGAN SQUARE IS IN THE SAME DISTRICT AS WHEATON. THEY PUT BARTLETT AND BENSENVILLE TOGETHER. CHAMPAIGN HAS A SNAKE DISTRICT WITH EAST ST. LOUIS.

This is a MASTERPIECE of election rigging. They split the last GOP collar county into FIVE different districts. Whoever split the GOP part of NW Dupage-Cook into districts 3, 5, and 8 should be remembered alongside Rembrandt and Michelangelo.

1. Really weird and interesting tensions playing out in the global economy right now. You have 50 years of creating a bunch of enormous multinational supply chains designed to let companies move production to places with lower labor costs so they

The whole "Taiwan having a conflict with China" framing is just so fucking absurd. Taiwan is not going to "have a conflict with China" literally the only "conflict" would be China invading. Do people think that like Taiwanese special forces are

harrowing. Reminds me of the accounts of how cops at the beginning of Occupy would get ordered to beat the shit out of like teenagers standing there with their hands up and they would cry and cry and cry and then beat their skulls in anyways.

I think the hard part of analyzing the rise of the media grifters, from Tim Pool and Dave Rubin to Peter Coffin to the ex-yoga teachers spreading pastel QAnon, is that grifters a quintessential American figure who've existed here longer than the

country has and that makes it hard to sort out what's genuinely new here. I think the biggest change is that grifting has become, since I think the emergence of the right wing radio hosts and the televangelists, about selling attention itself and

not a specific product. Like the grifters are still selling things (Alex Jones and his brain pills ect ect) but the real grift is getting attention, which you can then turn into viewers for advertisors or just sell to directly. This means that you

One of the reasons that all of the "what if Superman were evil" stories suck is that the real answer to the question is that if Superman lost control he would basically instantly destroy the earth. But like you can't actually write that as a story

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
so you wind up with this weird shit where the authors are screaming about how SUPERMAN'S NOT HOLDING BACK ANYMORE because that's the central Evil Superman thing and it's just like yeah he is it's extremely obvious that he is. The closest I think

God they're so mad people are talking about this lmfao I do think it's worth looking at the "arguments" here though, like aside from smearing the critics there's a broad attempt to normalize GETTING $12,000,000 THROUGH GOLDMAN'S DARK MONEY FUND

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed Image
as if this is a normal thing that normal leftist orgs do. No anarchist bookstore for example, and there are plenty, run like this. And the second point is that the AMOUNT of money here is WAY more than any of the legitimate dues paying orgs have.

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
That's more money than a lot of established political parties have on hand, much less random bookstores. And it's also worth pointing out that there's literally no evidence that this is one leftist pouring $24 million into passion projects. All we

My actual take on the China gaming ban is that there's a legitimate problem with game companies creating what are literally just platforms to get children addicted to gambling but the CCP wants the sweet, sweet money you get from exploiting

children, people with addiction problems, and people with mental illnesses so instead of oh I don't know banning microtransactions and gambling mechanics in games they impose a bunch of surveillance state shit on children. This lets them

Yeah people really, REALLY get The Dark Alliance wrong, the chain of money in the CIA cocaine shit was that the CIA was allowing its assets to sell crack in the US to fund the Contras. It wasn't actually really about the crack itself it was about

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
allowing the Contras to self-finance and building slush funds to pay their death squads. Gary Webb was very, VERY careful to say that the cocaine was about financing the death squads not about intentionally flooding California with crack, but the

I just had a realization about what tankieism is. I'd always sort of considered it part of the same turn towards nationalist authoritarianism that produced the new fascist right but what I didn't understand is that they ARE the counter-revolution.

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
That's the entire point, to be the counter-revolution to the 2011 revolutions. Those revolutions sole unifying demand was "the people want the fall of the regime". Tankieism as an ideology is meant to convince people that what they actually want

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed
is the regime. But the regime couldn't be defended on its own terms, after 2008 and 2011 that became impossible. So in the West you get the "anti-Establishment" Right that positions itself as the real opposition to the regime even though it's
