Excited that my country is going to recognize “Jewish” as a nationality now and also entirely coincidentally can ban nationalities from the country.

Greta is honestly amazing. imagine being 16 and genuinely screaming at world leaders that they're bullshitting everybody and refusing to act.

"The real danger is when politicians and CEOs are making it look like real action is happening when, in fact, almost nothing is being done apart from clever accounting and creative PR,"

(climate summits) "have turned into some kind of opportunity for countries to negotiate loopholes and to avoid raising their ambition"

@velexiraptor I feel like we're on the edge of a splitting point in the fabric of history, where either we're going to end up with Customer or Comrade

You ever notice how much patience and understanding is given to white folks who go full racist after having a bad experience two with someone Black, but Black folks are expected to give white people the benefit of the doubt despite the hundreds of years of oppression and inequality trends that *always* favor white folks.

Ha, but were TERRIBLE if we tend to be cautious around white people.

Funny how that works.

also, the best pride flag is the Progress flag, not in the least because it incorporates the Philly pride variant and the trans flag, but also does so in a vexilologically coherent way. you can actually tell what this flag represents without being told, which is not something you can usually say about Pride flags.

issues with the resurgent American Jewish left that i think could be liabilities

this is not the same as the usa or other out side countries causing the coups to happen, they probably cause some to win that wouldn't other wise, and attempts to be made that would simply never get off the ground otherwise
but the cause is conflict between classes and different factions of the ruling classes within the country where the coup happens

this may seem obvious and patronising, but when things as simple as a character model being changed after negative feedback get talked about as something planned from the start by the studio its clear that a conspiratorial mindset has take hold quite widely, one which sees everything as the result of the result of choices made by an almost all powerful american ruling class, not only is this view wrong, and racist, but it produces a world view where the normal people, the workers the peasants etc, thats us, can do nothing except hope for an equally powerful saviour

the idea that the coup in bolivia was the doing of the cia/america is the result of ignoring class

now i don't mean the idea that the cia/america supported the coupers, perhaps before they even did the coup, this is extremely obviously true, i'm talking about the idea that it happen *because* of american interference, that there would be no issues in bolivia, or really any other country this argument gets applied to, without american interference

at its worst this idea substitutes the ideas of class struggle for the ideas of national struggle

to understand what happened its necessary to understand that there are different classes with different interests within every country, with conflicting interests, this is often more complicated than bourgeois and proletariat, understanding that there are bosses and workers is a start but its not enough, there are often other divisions, natives vs settlers (often farmers or ranchers), peasants etc
