everyone should have EBT. that should be an individual's economic starting point.

for a measure of how quarantine has gone: the shoe store at the mall has been replaced with an adult stuffed animal store

to understand what it means for America to bring "freedom" to other countries, you have to recognize the parenthetical: "freedom (for America to do whatever it wants)"

"intersectionality" is a framework for class consciousness that particularizes the experience of class exploitation for those who fall outside the cultural hegemony.

but if you can't reduce your allies to the class interests they share with you, then you're open to working with those who have class interests that stand opposite you.

the idea that socialists should "vote blue" (rather than "vote Democrat") is especially funny because blue is famously the color of conservative liberalism in the rest of the world—and in the US, if we're being honest

the acting director of DHS complained that a violent mob of anarchists are "desecrating" private property and I'm curious who consecrated it in the first place

"We've been having some problematic chants at protests lately, such as 'NYPD SUCK MY DICK,' and it troubles me that our movement seems to be reproducing the patriarchal structures we're trying to destroy. Not a good look, fam."
