  • Still gotta vote blue no matter who guys. Genocide Joe is the MOST PROGRESSIVE PRESIDENT OF OUR LIFETIME.

    What, these people are complicit in a genocide and shouldn't be supported? You're just giving your vote to Trump then!

  • What was your first operating system or Linux Distribution?
  • Mac OS 7. By the mid-2000s, I adopted Arch Linux after looking into some other Linux distributions.

  • Are you a 'tankie'
  • YES

    If wanting to receive basic human rights (food, housing, etc.), attend education without being discriminated against for my income and mental condition, control my workplace, earn the full value of my wages, have a government actually controlled by the people, all while being politically educated in past socialist movements and their theory to achieve all these things, then I'm sure as hell am a tankie, and I don't care what online liberals say.

    Stalin rules, by the way. ✊

  • What is/was your distrohopping journey?
  • macOS, then Linux Mint, then Arch Linux, then EndeavourOS, then Artix Linux, and now Parabola GNU/Linux-libre.

  • Political Memes @lemmy.world ☭ Parabola ☭ @lemmy.ml

    Western Zionists vs. Israeli Zionists

    What is the most unhinged conspiracy theory?
  • Stalin single-handedly starved 8 million+ Ukrainians, Russians, and Kazakhs in the 1930s to stop some nationalists.

    “The cruelty is the point” of campus protest crackdowns
  • They are evil, but that doesn't come out of nowhere. It comes from needing to violently enforce the demands of an oppressive, exploitive system.

    Leftypedia is starting to open up content portals, the first one being on Marxism–Leninism

    Content portals are places where you can find a general summary of content. This is a great place for you to start out as a new editor.

    We plan on making more content portals in the near-future (one for anarchism, Maoism, etc.) so editors can find content which interests them in an easier way.

    We've successfully held our first study group meeting!

    !

    We've just held the first meeting of our study group! We read Principles of Communism, and had a great time discussing it after completing it.

    We invite everybody to join our Discord server and make suggestions for what we should read next!

    We're starting to translate our articles into non-English languages. Here's one in Portuguese

    As part of our internationalist duty, we want to help spread socialism to workers of all countries, even if they speak different languages.

    One of our new editors, Offl1ne, is helping to translate many of our important articles into non-English languages. This is very important. And we hope to expand these efforts to increase the reach of socialist theory and education.

    Are you fluent in a non-English language and would like to contribute? If so, we invite you to create an account and help translate Leftypedia into different languages.

    Supreme Court refuses to defend constitutional right to organize
  • Everything's part of a single massive conspiracy by the Chinese-communist-Judeo-Bolsheviks to turn the frogs gay and destroy American values, huh? Fascism is what we need to stop TikTok from destroying society, huh?

  • Supreme Court refuses to defend constitutional right to organize
  • American legal parlance is a nothingburger, not its actual real-world effects. This ruling has considerable effects in the states it's relevant in.

  • Planned obsolescence shatters the myth of capitalist innovation
  • In certain cases with certain issues. Keep in mind that your link also contains a long list of "obsolete and vintage" products which they refuse to fully repair if at all.

    Planned obsolescence.

    In the show "3 Body Problem" (I haven't read the book) the statement was made **'our civilization is no longer capable of solving its own problems'**. Would you agree?
  • Capitalist realism. Human society has always been able to solve its problems. The issue is capitalism — our current society — can't solve the problems it created like massive wars, hunger, regular economic crisis, and global warming.

    Capitalism hasn't existed forever, and it won't exist in the future. Our civilization will solve the problem of capitalism by seeing to its abolition.

  • Planned obsolescence shatters the myth of capitalist innovation
  • Making repairs cost so much that it's less costly to buy the latest product and throw out the old one is a part of planned obsolescence.

  • Planned obsolescence shatters the myth of capitalist innovation
  • A new logic board costs as much as a new computer. Hard drives are impossible to replace, RAM upgrades are hard, and even opening a Mac or iPhone voids your warranty. Not to mention all their nonsense with macOS upgrade requirements, batteries, and so on.
