What liberals are having an issue understanding is that by walling ourselves off and droning the world when resources are becoming scarce we have set ourselves up for one of two outcomes. There will either have to be a redistribution of all of the ill-gotten gains to the needy on a scale never-before-seen promoting a new age of global cooperation and mutual aid, or there will be a mass genocide of the third world. The Nazis understand this and are acting accordingly. #anarchism #socialism

Never used to read c4ss.org - always meant to but upon opening Firefox I always went elsewhere. Finally set up rss again and so reading some stuff. This was insightful - a macro lens look at some recent protests in Portland - but builds to a powerful last paragraph, a quote from Frederick Douglass https://c4ss.org/content/52444

UK politics / Grenfell Tower / Jacob Rees-Mogg / Andrew Bridgen
The MP that "represents" my constituency is a proper horrible person, and for fuck-knows what reason is currently trying to out-scumbag Rees-Mogg.
North West Leicestershire needs this un-compassionate nasty piece of shit voted out in the upcoming election or I'll scream. He doesn't represent me for absolutely fucking sure. This isn't even a one-off, he's a proper cunt.
ok here we go, a thread of some great books by POC that i've read or am in the process of reading and very much enjoying
It's not the fact that we are in an election, where all material put out by parties is propaganda, by my reading of the definition.
