What are your thoughts on the protests in Thailand? Don't tell me this is another CIA color revolution and we as leftists should support thai royalists

>>1010993 cringe
>>1025451 It is. It’s just that because they’re not inherently anti-communist like the monarchy so leftists can use it to radicalize people. In a way, the Bolsheviks were a kind of color revolution backed by Germany, but they were smart enough to betray the Kraut immediately when they had the chance.
Imagine calling yourself a Marxist but denying that the bourgeoisie is a progressive force against monarchism. Like what is your end game? Thailand has no ascendant communist movent because of how politically retarded it is.

i'm just in my 20s, never worked in any condition, my friends have and they told me stories of all kinds. bosses yelling at workers, fights breaking out, customers being dicks. i don't think i have anxiety but this shit scares me. after reading about socialism i've some how mentally prepared myself for the wrong workforce. my parents want me to start working soon (tho prob not during the pandemic) and i'm kinda scared of hierarchy by this point. i don't want to diagnose myself, but i feel like i have depression and anxiety FROM capitalism. does anyone else feel this way?

Blows my mind someone could get to 20 without having a job. Even if your parents do give you money like, don't you want to be free of having to ask them? Yeh late night come home work suxxx I know but like, nobody is ever gonna leave you roses by the stairs if you live at home with mom and pop. Y'know? How you gonna organise workers if you're not one? Also, also I'm jealous as hell. Worked since I was 15, got friends who are 28 and literally never had a job, paid all the way through uni etc, had time to become an artist or some shit because they weren't wasting their youth working. Fuck that shit. Don't be one of those.
>>1027281 >Blows my mind someone could get to 20 without having a job. I'm 23 and I've never been able to get a job, not even dishwashing or other shit work.
>>1027281 >Even if your parents do give you money like, don't you want to be free of having to ask them? How many expenses do you have as a 20 year old lmao. > had time to become an artist or some shit because they weren't wasting their youth working. Fuck that shit. Don't be one of those. Damn dont hate others because their parents got just enough money to pay for them.
>>1027312 How autistic are you?
Work sucks sometimes but at least it keeps me occupied. Plus I like what I do even if some days it sucks. Pick up a trade OP, it's much more fulfilling than a 9 to 5 office job or a shitty service industry job that pays like ass.

>>1020264 based and pol pot pilled.
>>1019061 No, and to that end, be VERY skeptical of leftists who push for accepting liberalism as a way to fight Nazis. The neoliberal order is still by far the greatest threat to socialism, and no amount of tiki-torch wielding larpers will warrant an alliance with the center of global capitalism and imperialism. The very fact that orgs like the CPUSA are trying to revive the popular front of the 30s is one such example, considering that they can't see the difference between literal fascist states invading socialist states vs a massive neoliberal establishment dealing with a few unpopular fashie domestic groups.

>>1019646 >that file name But seriously tho, to the people itt posing them as a major threat, do you really think that these <200 member orgs are worth fighting over the gargantuan neoliberal complex? If you want to fight mobilized reaction, fight the evangelical movement that's been infiltrating the neocons, because that's the closest thing to institutional fascism we've seen in a while. But these clowns? They're too stupid to realize that modern fascism requires a rebranding, I wouldn't lose any sleep over them
>>1019373 this. we must always fear the religious, their retardation knows no bounds
>>1028376 I wouldnt go as far to say fear but to destroy the death cult of religion especially evangelicalism ehich in itself is a the literal definition of a death cult. Stay vigilant against both as neiberals are the bigger enemy of the two.but we should take out the death cult by any means necessary.

>>1027740 So cute. >They try to solve the problem of poverty, for instance, by keeping the poor alive; or, in the case of a very advanced school, by amusing the poor. >But this is not a solution: it is an aggravation of the difficulty. The proper aim is to try and reconstruct society on such a basis that poverty will be impossible. And the altruistic virtues have really prevented the carrying out of this aim. Just as the worst slave-owners were those who were kind to their slaves, and so prevented the horror of the system being realised by those who suffered from it, and understood by those who contemplated it, so, in the present state of things in England, the people who do most harm are the people who try to do most good; and at last we have had the spectacle of men who have really studied the problem and know the life – educated men who live in the East End – coming forward and imploring the community to restrain its altruistic impulses of charity, benevolence, and the like. They do so on the ground that such charity degrades and demoralises. They are perfectly right. Charity creates a multitude of sins.
