Removed Comment the problem is that Russia cannot be either appeased or, given Trump's backing in 2025, stopped. It is all of Eastern Europe that is going to be destroyed in the next decade. And it is simply lack-of-spine among the rich countries that is making this so. --- The appeasers of Adolph never stopped him. The appeasers of Putin won't stop him, or his successor. ( whenever Putin is killed, and he *won't* die of old age, dictators never do, whomever replaces him is going to be the "puppet" that Russia's financial-owner, China, wears: they'll be allowed to be rich, they'll be allowed to do some things somewhat their way, but they're going to do what CCP orders them to do, and they're going to clear everything with CCP before doing them. ) Europe's accommodating its own future-butchery. The sea-level-rise of Greenland dumping its icemelt *can't* magically distribute globally into 1 or 2 metres of sea-level-rise: it'll affect *only* the North Atlantic ( being much more significant in amount, due to being concentrated, so the Netherlands is .. fucked ), for the 1st few decades, so Europe loses its port-cities AND Trump guts NATO AND Trump backs Russia in destroying as much of Europe as it can.. what's happening to Ukraina right now, is going to be normal throughout Europe within 1 decade. All: political, ClimatePunctuation, *all* of it was preventable, if human nature had wanted any alternative. --- It's like watching an addict destroy their brain & life with chemicals, while complaining that they haven't an addiction problem, it's people not going along with them, that's the real problem, .. .. until they die, and then their denial of addiction becomes "technically" true, because the don't exist anymore. by @[email protected]

Hey, would you like to vote for Biden so he can support Israel or for Trump so he can take his turn in supporting it. It's like the election system - that is flawed to only allow 2 parties - is made like it is so someone can control exactly who has the ability to get elected. Zionism is conveniently almost the only thing the 2 parties can agree on, completely disregarding **EXTREMELY OBVIOUS** violations of everything you could think of, regularly committed by Israel.

Removed Comment > Marxist-leninism is literally the base from which most communist theory exists. False. It's literally the base from which all failed communist revolutions exist. But see that name before the hyphen? The name before the hyphen indicates an important, dare I say more influential precursor. And the basis for as much communist theory as Lenin ever authored. Marx was cold in the grave before Lenin was born. And he wasn't even the only communist intellectual/philosopher of his day. > Most communists are some flavor or branch of ML, Got a citation on that. Along with methodology? Not that I'm arguing there aren't a lot of ML out there. There absolutely is. But I've never seen anything definitive on that topic. Because, and lets be clear. Lots of us are somewhat loathe to publicly identify as any flavor due to how bad a name Leninist's and Fascist propaganda taking advantage of Leninist's failings and bad behavior are. > because it gets the goods. So does capitalism. But that's nothing to justify a basically "lateral" translation. Or the detrimental behaviors of either. Because "capitalism" doesn't justify the killing of my ancestors or all the governments the US has meddled in and overthrown. Just as because "leninism" doesn't justify the millions sent to the gulags to die for disagreeing with "the party". Or all the countries forcefully annexed after the war. Who rightfully resent that to this day. It's always interesting to hear the hypocritical whining of capitalists and ML though. So similar where it matters most that they will dive on you in a frenzy should you point it out. > Yeah, after it was couped by US backed traitors and the US enforced fascism. So basically a triggered Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Look I'm not denying America's bad track record in the slightest. Reagan was absolutely a fascist. But you need to look inside the iron curtain as to why the change happened. Concentration of power is always a bad thing. And as such, between the concentration and the violent oppression of dissent. It led to wide spread failures of the party to address peoples needs. I mean after all. How would the party know of anyone's needs if they were fucking terrified for their lives to even be seen going against "the party". And for it being some sort of American coup. That doesn't even make basic sense. It's just absurd. Most of the people who had true power before were the same as those that had power after. So they couped themselves? How does that even work..... Not only that they're also still largely opposed and fought by the United states etc to this day. Every single other fascist dictator America ever put in place was loyal to their deaths. Not because they were loyal or anything. But often because that was all that keep them alive. > Why is their industrial output not falling as they’re firmly in the middle income country bracket then? Wow such a dishonest question. Okay easy rebuttal. As nearly all industrialized nations fall into recession. Why hasn't America? Gasp! OMG could it be there's nuance and other circumstances? Surely not. > (If you can’t understand the contradiction you haven’t read enough theory about imperialism and neo-imperialism) No I'm just not some circular thinking fanboy. Mind you I am 100% pro communism, just not pro Communism. > Yeah, and they make all the grandpas push the one train whenever it breaks down. The rats eat the children and the children eat the rats. /s I never made any such claims.
