I wrote that went to pee, turned of the pc, doubted myself very hard while peeing, turned on pc again, reread, reaffirmed


ok to make it very very (comically so) simple:


left:
some people are strong, some people are weak, society is best when the strong support the weak.


right:
some people are strong, some people are weak, society is best when you let the strong do whatever they want.


I know your country is the exception -  but so much so that the argument appeals to a fucking republican (hear braindead removed from any reasonable spectrum)


They'll been doing it since even before Tian square. Killing  protesters to disuade others is standard totalitarian method, one the communists are pretty adept at.

the strong kill the weak? big news

dragdeler is pointing out that Baal every single times conflates authoritarianism with The Left. And that is a bad take. Authoritarianism is bad, and sometimes authoritarians paint themselves red to seem better-looking.

Hell, Bolsonaro was elected throug the Partido Social Liberal (Social Liberal Party), despite being neither of those things.

I mean, he's more badmouthing communism.
Which... in all its current manifestations is fair enough.

I did say authoritarian regimens first. I know not all are lefts, hard rigth wing bad regimens are true too. If you read my post I hate the left because of my personal experiences with it. But I also always preach for balance because the extremes are bad, no matter the side.

I dunno fam, try scraping together a decent-sized sample of the average vocal leftist from around the world, put them in charge of a government, and see what sort of governance they come up with. Obviously this is a purely hypothetical thought experiment given their lack of qualifications for such things, but still.   




In less-political WTFs: I actually have made some good inroads on packing today, starting with the ridiculous number of books in my room.
It's... weird becoming reacquainted with all these disparate volumes that have been lurking under my bed or in the middle of stacks that I am still yet to find time for. Hell, I haven't even gotten 'round to The Doors of Perception yet, and that's a fairly small book that's been floating around in my possession for years!
Maybe having to move is a good thing, in many ways.

It's a case of "Hey, here's my opinion on this one narrow thing", but we all have more complex, overarching views. I know for a fact that Baal is more to the left than most Americans, economically and socially. But when it comes to leftist dictatorships, he's understandably angry.

Sure, well I guess I am. I know global warming is real, and I'm pro same sex civil marriage, religions have no bussisnes in law making and free education and social aid programs are good (as long it truly tries to teach to fish instead of being about giving the fish). Free basic health care is a must also.

Also survived with my family with less than 10$ on averge per month for... God way too long.

Just had a dejavu about this topic actually.

Edit: just to clarify, communist regimes have been ALL  been autoritarian and protester-killers.

He was democratically elected and ruled only three years before being brutally murdered (driven to suicide) by a future totalitarian. Hardly a communist regime there, just a communist guy elected via democratic elections.

PRC wasn't Communist since forever. They simply use red stars for aesthetics and have Communist party in charge*. They're, by any means, a far-right government.

*And the party has moved from the Communism completely since Deng Xiaoping and his market reforms.
