The solid red flag works completely fine as a symbol of socialism that wasn't created by a totalitarian empire that slaughtered anarchists. But if you're not happy with that you can also use the red rose (with or without a loaf of bread or stalk of wheat) or the cog

Just, please, phase out the hammer and sickle. Its symbolism isn't even relevant to the modern world

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

Like, the hammer and sickle literally wasn't made as a symbol of socialism. It was made as a symbol of the Soviet empire

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammer_a

No matter how you feel about the USSR, it's gone now. The symbol just isn't relevant. Put it away

@vitria totalitarian theory explicitly argued and draws comparisons between the far left and right though, this is undeniable fact.

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@wintgenstein And why orientalism ?

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@vitria because it argues that the socialists due to being in Asia and eastern Europe are uniquely evil

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@vitria its super othering to socialist societies to present them as a unique evil. its also ahistorical and evidence of huffing too much imperial ideology.

@wintgenstein

It's awesome to use some words like Imperialism or Orientalism to hide and minimise ML shits. If you consider authoritarianism as a shitty theory you are already too far to argue with.
Have fun dear Stalinist.

Here is your Horseshoe theory ↓

@vitria you're aware the political quadrant chart was created to make people ancaps right? its definitionally impossible to do imperialism while socialist you clearly have not read the lenin.

@wintgenstein "Does not existe because there is no difference between domination by private institutions and domination by state institutions"

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@vitria you fucking know that's not true and I sincerely hope you dont believe that lol. its good for the workers to suppress the bourgeoisie and capitalists.

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@vitria btw its literally impossible to call yourself antifascist while saying tankie. its good to repress fascism, actually.

leftpol, history, imperialism and authoritarianism mention 

@wintgenstein "tankie
A hardline Stalinist."

@vitria how in the world are you defining imperialism? you seem grossly misinformed to be having this discussion.
