y'all really putting the squeeze on me to defend state capitalism against the gamers god dammit
never forget bush did 9/11 and hong kong protestors are funded by the burgoeise afraid china is going to take their slaves, the cia, and fascists, so even if you dont like the chinese government, which, fair enough, maybe consider pretty much everything is fash horseshit before getting too wrapped up in a particular side
@anna If we could refrain from jumping on slogans developed by the CIA instantly before learning the first thing about a situation that would be great.
Experts on Hong Kong please comment. (This implies if you're not an expert on Hong Kong maybe don't).
@tesseract yeah im not backing a particular side because i dont understand it all the way, ~*both sides*~ are being suspiciously shitty so im defaulting to stanning neither unless i get good info that compels me to take one
Not here to say that China is perfect because no state is perfect. A socialist state is an imperfect transitional period. This is like basic socialist theory here. Expecting the state of China to be perfect is a fool's game. A State Will Never Be Perfect Because States Are Bad. But some states may transition into a better situation.
Is China going in that direction? I dunno. I am not a China expert.
Let's not get sucked into the game of feeling like we have to declare if China is Good or Evil and if the Hong Kong movement is Good or Evil and if the gamer is Good or Evil and that we have to pick the correct team to cheer for... This is passive adolescent thinking that capitalism wants you to adhere to. Just stop it everybody.
A witchy space for most any face! Whether a witch or a witch-respecter, join the coven that is free of fash, TERFs, feds, and bigots
