Comrades, I am super happy to see so many people here! I have hope that our community can stay together and continue on. We have so many great people from around the world. I am still working on pulling all of the genZedong data from reddit. I have about half of the subs entire record of posts since 2019 saved. When I get it all, I will make it available so that everybody can enjoy the great things they have contributed! I have linked a USSR anthem from a television sign off. It is a very emotional an wonderful video of the great country. Please enjoy it and remember what we are fighting for. **The struggle goes on!**

[HOW TO:] Lemmygrad is more than just a knock-off subreddit replacement. Let's actively leverage Lemmy's federative structure in our favor!

~|~|*Share this by posts or in comments by copying the* [*markdown*](https://pastebin.com/Npy8tuDr) *to preserve link functionality*|~|~ Right now, the bulk of the activity on Lemmygrad is happening in one community: [lemmygrad.ml/c/genzedong](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/genzedong). This is expected and completely normal. We are in the immediate aftermath of a mass exodus away from one of the last large, explicit bastions of anti-imperialism and communism on Reddit, and in our haste to settle we have made and populated /c/genzedong, and, in doing so, recreated the home we were familiar with: an all-purpose hub designed to be a seat of ML engagement. However, while familiar, many unfavorable structural features forced upon us by merely existing on Reddit have carried over with us. We became desensitized to the less-than-ideal compromises we made to have a presence on Reddit, and, now that we have stepped outside into greener pastures, our eyes have not quite adjusted to the new opportunities to aid our cause. Let's accelerate the acclimation! **TL;DR: We are no longer constrained from things as simple as outletting frustration by wishing death on Nazis to the more impactful, such as the freedom to actively organize and educate. There are myriad new ways we can better equip ourselves for the long fight with the tools and technology Lemmy's federalized structure offers us. We should lean into these changes quickly.** To contribute to this process (which is happening and will continue to happen whether or not we expedite it), I will outline a niche of optimization yet unexplored: # [Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml) is already the /r/genzedong equivalent that /c/genzedong is trying to be. [Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml) is an instance of the Lemmy structure. Lemmy instances can be thought of as what subreddits would be if they were hosted on their own separate domain/websites. More accurately, you can also think of Lemmy instances as what Reddit would look like if you could just copy Reddit's code, buy a domain, and make your own version of Reddit that you own and administrate, instead of some large company in San Fransisco that can delete you and your forum off of their site for stating that there was no massacre in Tiananmen Square. Consequently, we need to treat [Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml) as if we stumbled upon an unoccupied yet functional Reddit domain, with full subreddit capability. **We are no longer forced to view /c/genzedong as a catch-all forum for every possible ML post, as a de-facto standard-bearer and home for those posts that have no better place to be posted. As we grow, we should periodically fracture off posts by purpose into new, focused communities.** Among some already-implemented ideas to spark this transition: * a /r/worldnews equivalent that isn't a hellscape of propaganda as a place for the /r/genzedong posts about significant global developments: * [lemmygrad.ml/c/worldnews](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/worldnews) * [lemmygrad.ml/c/us\_news](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/us_news) * [lemmy.ml/c/worldnews](https://lemmy.ml/c/worldnews) (bigger but in the main, non-communist instance) * a community just for the types of post that were only allowed on 'lib cringe weekend' * [lemmygrad.ml/c/shitliberalssay](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/shitliberalssay) * [lemmygrad.ml/c/shitfascistssay](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/shitfascistssay) * [lemmygrad.ml/c/okbuddyanarkiddie](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/okbuddyanarkiddie) * a launch-point community aimed at education and agitation * [lemmygrad.ml/c/redditactionfront](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/redditactionfront) * a pipeline receptacle community to catch new users entering [Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml), where questions can be asked and educational resources are easily accessible * [lemmygrad.ml/c/newtolemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/newtolemmygrad) * Expressions of our Humanity; the Beautiful Contradiction that is our individual enactments of our shared, single substance: * [Power Music](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/power_metal) * [Dialectical Materialism](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/dm_) * [Video Games](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/games) # What You Should Do Right Now * [Join Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml/signup) if you haven't already! * Browse through [Lemmygrad's ever-growing list of communities](https://lemmygrad.ml/communities) (subreddit equivalents) and subscribe to and engage with those that interest you. * Create your own communities to fill important niches we were prevented from imagining at Reddit. * Cross-post between communities to give posts in smaller, specified communities visibility in the most popular communities, like lemmygrad.ml/c/genzedong * *Produce high quality content natively in Lemmygrad, then link to it on targeted Reddit subs to draw in more users* * **Link this post to all places that contain people disenfranchised and disillusioned by Reddit's looming ban of /r/genzedong** (e.g. Reddit, Discord, Telegram, Element, etc...). We need to advertise why [Lemmygrad](https://lemmygrad.ml) is more than just a knock-off subreddit replacement that will be forgotten about in a month. Moreover, we should aim towards reaching appreciation of the unique opportunities Lemmy presents for the people already inside the community. ~|~|*Share this by posts or in comments by copying the* [*markdown*](https://pastebin.com/Npy8tuDr) *to preserve link functionality*|~|~ * Browse Lemmy's current [app offerings](https://join-lemmy.org/apps). Likely due to a large influx of new accounts and activity, some instance behaviors are unusable on the apps and many users, including myself, have been using the Lemmy [web app](https://lemmygrad.ml) on our phone's browsers in the meantime! Lastly, stay patient - this transition was a long time coming, and it will take weeks if not months for our community to adapt to the new demands and realities and eventually stabilize. For instance, there have been significant periods of downtime where Lemmygrad has been unusable, either due to increased traffic or DDOS efforts (instance behavior on mobile apps has also been unusable, even when the site is accessible). While solutions to these issues do occur, they do not happen overnight. Hang in there :)

[MegaPost] What are Lemmy, Lemmygrad, and Federation?
pin
Most of you reading this are here because /r/GenZedong was quarantined. While this place is very similar to Reddit, it also has a major difference that can make it a bit confusing, which is the Federation part. Without wasting anyone's time, I'll explain things right away. # 1) What is Lemmy? -------------------- Lemmy is a link-aggregator, similar to sites like Reddit and HackerNews. But unlike Reddit, it isn't really a website you can visit, it is just a source code. But that code is Open Source, meaning anyone can see it, edit it, and use it. It was designed in such a way that you can easily take the code and create your own website with it (with some technical knowledge of course). So you can buy the domain FuckRedditLibs.com right now and make it a Lemmy website, or as we call it, a Lemmy "Instance". # 2) What is Lemmygrad? ------------------ As you can all deduce by now, Lemmygrad is a Lemmy instance. Someone took the Lemmy code, bought the Lemmygrad.ml domain, and hosted the code there. The admins of Lemmygrad.ml only control Lemmygrad.ml, they have no authority over other instances. But that means that *no one* has authority over Lemmygrad.ml except Lemmygrad.ml admins. If you create an instance, there is no higher power you have to adhere to like in Reddit. You are the captain now. If you look at Lemmygrad.ml as a standalone website, a rival to Reddit, you don't have to understand what Federation means. You can create a user account, create/join a community (subreddit), post links/images/text, basically most things you expect to do. So unlike what some might think, Lemmygrad isn't just GenZedong. GenZedong is just a community there ([!genzedong@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/genzedong)). There are other communities obviously, like [!communism@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/communism) , [!shitliberalssay@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/shitliberalssay) , and [!memes@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/memes) . You can see a list of all the communities [here](https://lemmygrad.ml/communities). # 3) What does Federation mean? ------------------ Though as said before, you can look at Lemmygrad as a standalone website. But you aren't really supposed to. What makes Lemmy powerful is the federation aspect. So Lemmygrad.ml exists. Lemmy.ml also exists (it is the instance created by the Lemmy developers, but that doesn't make it anymore "official" or important than other instances, all instances are equal). The cool thing is that all the instances are connected. If you create an account on Lemmygrad.ml, you can also view and participate with communities from all other instances! Don't believe me? Check my username. It should say [@MarcellusDrum@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/MarcellusDrum), which means I have created my account in Lemmy.ml, but I can post here in [!genzedong@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/genzedong) , which is a Lemmygrad.ml community. This is difference between the "Local" and "All" filter you see at the top of the home page. "Local" means posts from communities in your instance, and "All" means posts from communities from all federated instances. You can see the name of the instance after the usernames/name of the communities. But as we said, even though they are federated, all instances are standalone sites. So [!communism@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/communism) and [!communism@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/communism) can coexist, with different moderators, posts, users and rules. They are completely independent places. As such, if you created an account by going to Lemmygrad.ml, your account is linked to this instance. You can't go to Lemmy.ml and login using the same account there. Accounts aren't federated. So everytime you have to login, you will have to go to Lemmygrad.ml (or the instance you created your account on). If you are using an application like Lemmur, you have to specify which instance your account is linked to. Same with communities, account names are only unique in an instance. Someone can use your exact username in another instance. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Fact
The point of the tweet is that allegations about the CIA's actions are treated as either "ummm conspiracy much?" (even if there is firm evidence of that activity) until they become "yeah they did that but it's irrelevant because it happened too long ago" even if they publish their own internal files about it. Meaning that they can NEVER be held accountable for anything.

For how much the western bourgeoisie whines about Uyghur abuse, I'm surprised I don't see them mentioning the Ma Clique or Xinjiang under Sheng.
Think about it. Ma Qi is a Muslim and most Uyghurs are Muslim (racist connection, I know, but they would totally try to make that one). They would probably create propaganda whining about how Ma Qi was the "rEaL liBErAtOr" of the Uyghur people. Xinjiang under Sheng got support from the Soviet Union; has always been home to the Uyghur people; and gets mentioned for "hUmAn RiGhTs AbUsEs"; but I don't see *any* mention of Xinjiang under Sheng Shicai, only of Xi Jinping. The western bourgeoisie could probably fund sheng or Ma Clique supremacist groups.

I'm glad we escaped that website

Okay. Im getting nervous.
The US keeps talking about leading NATO in a counter attack against Russia if Russia uses nukes. They keep saying this and with the recent events of Nordstream, Im becoming increasingly worried that the US is fixing to do a false flag. And none of the US and EU's behavior have been making any sense as of late.

A few days ago this suddenly popped up out of the blue, thoughts? I think more countries should tell the Dutch to go fuck themselves, if you ask me.
