@SunSaint even just something like... did you ever encounter those re-writes of classic novels for children? where the language was updated and simplified. i’m not thinking like weird emoji shorthand just like something easier to understand for almost anyone.
i do think audiobooks and podcasts would be good too though.
i think honestly while most of the older communist works are super relevant we need more of a push towards reworking them in a more modern way. i think if we put them out there in a way that made it “fresher” and more... contemporary language wise it would reach a wider audience and gain more traction
"Some comrades, disregarding the subjective and objective conditions, suffer from the malady of revolutionary impetuosity; they will not take pains to do minute and detailed work among the masses, but, riddled with illusions, want only to do big things."
"[They,] adopting the methods of commandism and relying only on [...] a small section of the masses, erroneously attempted to stage a series of local uprisings throughout the country, which had no prospect of success."

i’m always hesitant to get into it irl about the palestine situation as a white woman, especially since most americans lack the understanding of why colonialism is bad and why genocide is bad when it involves brown people. me being a dumbass aspies girl who is bad at wording things when i talk doesn’t help.
to be fully critical of israel you at best need to be fully critical of other settler states for the same reasons, IE the native genocide by American colonialists and English imperialism. To critique Zionism without being critical of other colonial settler states IS definitely more than a little sus re: anti semitism
“-A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon — authoritarian means, if such there be at all; and if the victorious party does not want to have fought in vain, it must maintain this rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionists.”
-But the anti-authoritarians demand that the political state be abolished at one stroke, even before the social conditions that gave birth to it have been destroyed. They demand that the first act of the social revolution shall be the abolition of authority. Have these gentlemen ever seen a revolution—“
“Why do the anti-authoritarians not confine themselves to crying out against political authority, the state? All Socialists are agreed that the political state, and with it political authority, will disappear as a result of the coming social revolution, that is, that public functions will lose their political character and will be transformed into the simple administrative functions of watching over the true interests of society -“
