@djsumdog I grew up in Moscow during Soviet times. And to give you some context around gulags, US has more people in prison per capita than USSR did under Stalin. A lot of these people are also being used for hard labor.

Meanwhile, policing and incarceration actually increased in ex-Soviet republics after USSR collapsed. Highly recommend reading chapters 6 and 7 here eastsidemarxism.files.wordpres

The settler-colonial occupation of Palestinians mirrors the settler-colonial illegal American occupation of us Native Hawai'ians. Here, we're being displaced by Mark Zuckerberg's 1,300 acre ranch, the Oracle CEO buying all of Lana'i, et. al., but our struggles are deeply linked.

A lot of people suffer from imposter syndrome.

Whereas I haven't a doubt that I actually do suck.

"Cryptocurrency is one of the worst inventions of the 21st century. [...] It has failed to be a useful currency, invented a new class of internet abuse, further enriched the rich, wasted staggering amounts of electricity, hastened climate change, ruined hundreds of otherwise promising projects, provided a climate for hundreds of scams to flourish, created shortages and price hikes for consumer hardware, and injected perverse incentives into technology everywhere. Fuck cryptocurrency."

We're at the point where if conservatives freak out at what you're about to do, you're probably doing the right thing.

Brown algae use Chlorophyll types A and C, green algae use A and B. We learned about brown algae in our class before greens, so the mnemonic device I came up with for my biology course is .

Exam Question: “What photosynthetic chemicals does this phylum use?”

Me: “Ah yes, all cops are bastards!”

"Canadian liberals perform a national ritual of shame and guilt over their treatment of indigenous people, but it never translates into meaningful reparations or action. The Xinjiang atrocity propaganda blitz offers something valuable to Canadians: instead of improving the situation at home, they can therapeutically attack China." Same goes for the entire Western imperial world.

'Green' Imperialism: literally burning your climate by refusing Xinjiang solar panels in attempt to stop a non-white socialist country from surpassing your colonial forced-labor, genocide, and ecology annihilation-backed Western Hegemony.
Just give up, already, West. You've lost.

China has:
'Forced labor!' oops, that's the US in its prison-labor system.
'half a million dead from pandemic response!' oops, US again.
'Oppressed, killed, impoverished ethnic minorities' yep, that's the US, uh...
'Destroying countless countries and peoples in for profit wars' - wait, yep, US...

The US will force billions back into poverty and war simply to reign over slums and ashes, out of infantile selfishness. It cares nothing for the human rights of its own people, let alone Uyghurs.

"We must stop China from becoming a peer, even if it means pushing them into poverty."
