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

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.

@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.
