I think all newborn males should be given reversible vasectomies and when they decide they want to have kids they literally have to pass an emotional intelligence and empathy test to have it reversed and if they don't well then they can go to a back-alley surgeon who uses a rusty scalpel and coat hanger to reverse it

Just puttin' it out there

centrist liberal: "I can't be racist because my Man's Best Friend is black!"

If I see one more "sexy Stalin" profile pic I'm gonna puke.

Time to piss some people off.

This is how I get around Anarchist Twitter's character limit.

If you ask most anarchists how they plan to change the world many of them will admit they're just winging it and trying to adapt as the world changes and adopt new models as the old ones are proven wrong.

I HAVE read Marxist theory. And I find quite a bit of it to be compelling. But I don't think there is any "one size fits all" theory that can tackle the problems humanity faces.

That's why radical and unwavering Communists are a joke. They honestly think Marxist-Leninist communism and ONLY Marxist-Leninist communism can save the world.

They don't seem to understand that to most of the world, those writers are absolutely boring AF, and it's better to suggest more entertaining writers who use Marxist theory in their work.

I am an anarchist, and Robert Anton Wilson's writing is still the hugest influence on my entire worldview, and especially the part where he insists that you cannot dogmatically believe anything without losing the ability for rational and open thought.

The actual comic strip The Boondocks was Black Power Marxist agitprop and was so radical many newspapers moved it to the editorial section or got rid of it altogether. And Calvin and Hobbes laid bare the absurdity of the human condition so incredibly that it was almost impossible to believe yoou were reading a comic strip.

But that's not the kind of reading MLs mean when they smugly tell you to "read theory." They mean read Mark or Lenin or Mao or even - god fucking help me - Stalin.

There are books that aren't absolutely dry and boring that can teach people theory, like "Fully Automated Luxury Communism" by Aaron Bastani or "Capitalist Realism" by Mark Fisher or "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn or "The Shock Doctrine" by Naomi Klein or the first two books published by the Church of the Subgenius. There's even a Manga version of Das Kapital that gets across main salient points of all three volumes using the story of a Japanese cheese factory owner.

I don't need to read Marx to know how to talk about how awful capitalism is. My problem isn't with Marx - it's with the people who absolutely insist you have to read Marx to understand something very, very simple:

More and more wealth is being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands at the expense and exploitation of everyone else.

I'm still trying to get word out kolektiva social exists

One of the problems I run into is that the online left is SWARMING with MLs and tankies. For some reason no one takes anarchists seriously.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

For those who say the left also joke about guillotines, gulags, eating the rich, and "the wall" I would like to point out that those aren't jokes.

My Republican dad to me when I came out to him as left wing as a teenager:

"You'll feel differently when you're older."

Me now, at 52: "You're absolutely right dad, I never thought I would consider beheading to be a viable and reasonable political strategy."

What's funny is my dad also said I would become less liberal as I got older.

He was right, but certainly not in the way he meant it

MLMs and tankies are a joke. They think they are a force for change when the government couldn't care less about them.

I know people on the left are soured on Bernie but the establishment REALLY went out of their way to make sure Bernie didn't win. I mean they used every dirty trick in the book.

They are more afraid of the DSA than a tiny group of Maoists.

Just something to think about.

(I am voting in the Texas mid-terms because holy fuck as a leftist I'd be crazy not to)

charlie kirk thinks a recession will be good cuz everyone will be begging for a job but i think recession will be good cuz everyone will be more likely to kill and eat charlie kirk

Nothing political about this one. It's literally just a song about sex, drugs, and life as a rock and roll animal.

Fuck yeah.


Helpful hint: Das Kapital was made into a manga where all the salient points of volume one are explained in detail using the story of a Japanese cheese factory owner.

So you can literally read a comic book in anime style and convince authcom jokers you actually read Das Kapital 😂
