Trump-Lover Elon Musk Is Already Causing Kamala Harris Problems
  • Elon is being on brand? Shocker! He's always been an insecure pissy little baby. I hope there's some legal action he might be threatened with. No matter how small. Because he's just starting.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • Hardly. Neither did the op. There's a difference between ML and Stalinist just like the difference between liberals and fascists. The one thing I can say for liberals that I can't for ML. Is that while many of them get very defensive and disagree vehemently. Surprisingly not one of them has banned me claiming horse shoe theory BS. For pointing out the simple fact that authoritarians are authoritarian before anything else.

  • US Secret Service director admits it 'failed' in mission to protect Donald Trump
  • In their defense, he's been damaged his whole life.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • Yes, but not hierarchy for hierarchies sake. Organization via consent is fine and encouraged. The problem is when it's done by force in an attempt to justify the hierarchy.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • Slim difference, though it is a difference. And they aren't fascists. We have a word that accurately describes both though. Authoritarian. And yes, it doesn't matter where you derive your "authority" from. Authoritarianism is always wrong.

  • There are too many of these people on lemmy
  • Liberal hence Libertarianism is definitialy a shortening of Economic Liberal. What you're quoting is the colloquial/slang/propaganda definition. Modern "liberals" are absolutely better than classic liberals. Simply by virtue of their tepid support for social safety nets. That isn't their failing. Their failing is that despite being "liberals" they're still, and more importantly more committed to economic liberalism than they are social investment. And as such, eager to reach across the aisle to normalize and work with bigots, proto fascists, and full fledged fascists. Just to appear bipartisan.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • To be fair though. It's not something anyone needs to be authoritative on. It's an observation even a five year old could make. Though I don't know if that makes it better or worse. LOL

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • It's all they have! How dare you take their only argument from them! /s

    You are 100% right though. It's a ham fisted deflection technique. I will defend them from people outright calling them fascists. Because there is a difference. But they are both authoritarian and in the end do a lot of the same things. Which should be discouraged no matter their intentions.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • Yep everyone that disagrees with you is just a liberal. It couldn't be that many different ideologies disagree with you.

    Even if you still somehow mistakenly think that Marxist leninism is a valid and worthwhile ideology to pursue. After it's been disproven so many ways. (As liberalism also has) Feeling the need to defend those who lack even more critical thinking skills like tankies. Will always make people still think less of you.

  • At the end of the day, they're a lot similar than they'd like to admit
  • You mean to tell me authoritarians gonna authoritarian?

  • In the 10 states that didn't expand Medicaid, 1.6M can't afford health insurance
  • And let me guess. Those 10 states are run by republicans. And the people blame Democrats. Because that makes no f****** sense so of course they would.

  • To halt Brazil’s decline, Lula needs to cut runaway public spending
  • Well if you listen to the fascists crowing about the successes in Argentina. The cost of Transport there has gone up drastically making everything more expensive. But housing costs have gone down on the positive side. Because people are struggling to afford to eat, housing is somewhat of a secondary concern. But the cost came down so that is somehow a win. So of course they want Brazil to make the same mistakes.

  • How Javier Milei Is Battling the Worst Tax of All—Inflation
    1. If Marxist leninism was a form of communism. It's awfully odd that the goal of marxist leninism is to build up the economy and Society to the point where they can transition to Communism. You never provided a source making your point. it's just another baseless claim from someone arguing disingenuously.

    2. That book is plenty controversial and not a well-regarded or authoritative source. If you really want to get that Technical and Out In The Weeds about everything America is pretty much just as bad. That doesn't make either one right. But it just means that you're reaching really hard to make a disingenuous point.

    3. Everything I posted can be cited and is factual/logical. You simply have no response to it. And are behaving disingenuously as conservatives and fascist do.

    4. An opinion piece is an opinion. Not a fact.

    5. For someone with so many strong opinions you sure have a very few objective facts.

  • How Javier Milei Is Battling the Worst Tax of All—Inflation
    1. Then prove it.

    2. China/Russia/N Korea/Cuba aren't communists. They're Marxist Leninist.

    3. Our current inflation is due in large part to Trump's unforced errors and botched handling of covid. a. Destroying the advance alert team before the pandemic b. Failing to listen to the experts and let them just make him look good. c. Even when he manages to do something right/good. Like rushing a vaccine through development. He's so incompetent and goldfish brained. He turned you, his own cult, against the vaccine he ordered.

    4. That is why no one takes you seriously and treats you like a joke.

  • How Javier Milei Is Battling the Worst Tax of All—Inflation
    1. You don't need to tell people you are american. It's readily apparent from your lack of knowledge about politics.

    2. That again isn't objectively true.

    3. Marxist Leninism didn't kill more than the Nazis. That's an absurd claim. They did kill millions still.

    4. Marxist Leninism isn't communism.

    5. Trump will be making bad decisions AGAIN and causing inflation like he objectively did previously. Trump is a sun downing narcicist, objectively convinced rapist and con man, with no actual principles or understanding. Who will focus on what will benefit him personally, not the average person. Or try to win the favor of the wealthy and powerful. Which he has tried and failed to do repeatedly his entire life. Which again, will not negatively impact inflation, or help the average person.

  • How Javier Milei Is Battling the Worst Tax of All—Inflation
    1. Objectively he didn't. Just because you do not like or personally benefit from a government program. Does not make it needless. Far from it.

    2. That isn't in any way the opposite of communism.

  • How Javier Milei Is Battling the Worst Tax of All—Inflation
  • Wait he's actually gone socialist? Last I knew he was an economic liberal. That's quite a transition. Inflation is an indelible persistent feature under any Market economy. Especially capitalism.

    A brand new single from Mark and Emily. A cover of Siouxie and the Banshees classic cities in dust. Be sure to check out their BandCamp. These two have definitely been one of my favorite darkwave duos of recent years. One of those rare groups where I can listen to pretty much their whole discography on loop. Even their sound track for the short-lived show Moonbeam City was excellent. As well as a fun track on the first Deadpool soundtrack.
