archive.is is working for me, at least; it could be yet another site that ignores Russian connection attempts




if you deny it permission to send notifications, it should get rid of those






the only people I know IRL are reactionary anticommunists and I’m consistently anxious about meeting them in case they go on an unhinged political rant

aside from that it’s ogey I guess




“that’s a pretty big carpet you got there, would be a shame if I were to step on the white parts”
– Xi Jinping, probably


industrial capitalism still exists in some countries to some extent, but yes, it’s all capitalism


yeah, it was industrial capitalism at first, eventually becoming financial/rentier capitalism (very little domestic manufacturing, lots of financial fuckery) – economist Michael Hudson talks about this frequently


this explains why so many people have their funny R\*ddit cake day today

IIRC he expressed some reactionary views on women (correctly identifying the negative effects of capitalism but sticking to the “men and women should have different roles in an economy” idea). Either way, you’ll probably be able to recognize the problematic or less relevant parts if you read it (and of course you should read everything with a critical eye, including the works of Marx and Lenin)


maybe there are multiple alts and you’re one of them
I shan’t be bamboozled




this will strengthen China’s economy while undermining the dollar 🫡

“something something two birds one stone” – V. I. Lenin, probably


television being just a propaganda outlet

this is a big deal; if she realizes that, it’ll probably be a lot easier to radicalize her (if that’s what you want to do)


using nuclear weapons on areas they consider part of their own country
really shows how much the wholesome Ukrainian government and army cares about the civilians in the east



if there’s an indigenous-led socialist organization in your area, you can try to support it in some way, even if it’s not explicitly Marxist socialism

What Matrix is + how to join the GenZedong Matrix space
pin
## What is Matrix? Preemptive TL;DR: `Matrix ≈ Discord - tracking + end-to-end encryption by default` Matrix is a protocol for real-time communication (text, audio, and video) followed by various applications ("clients") -- the official one is [Element](https://element.io/download) for Linux, macOS, Windows, Android, and iOS), but there are many others (e.g. those listed [here](https://matrix.org/clients)). It's also federated, like Lemmy. To use a Matrix client, you need to make a Matrix account at one of the Matrix *homeservers* (similar to how you can make an account on lemmygrad.ml or lemmy.ml but still access both of them). We have our own Matrix homeserver at https://genzedong.org, and you don't need an email address to register an account there. ## How do I use it? 1. Download a Matrix client (e.g. [Element](https://element.io/download)) on whatever device you prefer. 2. Create an account in the client. You can select `genzedong.org` as your homeserver here; if you choose the default `matrix.org`, you'll need to enter an email address. 3. Log in. Search for the room `#welcome:genzedong.org`. 4. If you already have a Lemmygrad account with a posting history, just mention it in the "Welcome" room and you'll be invited to the GenZedong *space* (basically just a collection of rooms -- the main one is `#general:genzedong.org`). Otherwise, you'll have to answer some vetting questions similar to the ones needed to register on Lemmygrad. ## How active is it? Not very active at the moment, but you -- yes, *you* (!!!) -- can help change this! Wow! Amazing! ## Important info - Encryption is currently disabled in the GenZedong Matrix rooms.

The Deprogram Episode 51 with Konstantin Syomin
I don't know about you, but saying that Marxists should prioritize dismantling their own country's bourgeoisie over global imperialism seems a bit ultra-leftist Also a bit weird that they didn't talk about Donbass

[according to CGTN, the government is now planning to let this pass](https://nitter.net/CGTNEurope/status/1585567673274044416) from a non-accelerationist standpoint, it might be good for various European governments (especially the more important ones) to be forced to pivot away from Amerika, but who knows if this actually has any significance

I also just learned that several civilians were killed and that the guy who drove the truck may have been unaware of the explosives, so this is just an actual terrorist attack rather than a "legitimate" (from the most pro-Ukrainian perspective possible) target yes, I'm two days behind and most of you probably already knew this, so what, wanna fight about it
