@emptyother @stevedidwhat_infosec Glowies want people softened up and aggressive and circlejerking about social darwinist shit ISTFG it's for war with China 😂🤣

@stevedidwhat_infosec It just means CIA. You shouldn't, it's a pretty dark reference to when internet lolcow obsessives encouraged a schizophrenic operating systems coder who lived with his parents to say racist stuff. He does have one famous rant he rehashed s lot where he says "CIA [racial slur] all glow in the dark you can see them coming". At this point it's transcended any racist connotation as people have mistakenly picked it up without realizing, and it's a meme

@stevedidwhat_infosec Fr I don't think people understand you can simultaneously find it funny and be deeply disturbed by what severe and acute mental illness and online reactionaries can do to someone.

@JohnDClay @turkishdelight Zenz repurposes the pro-life argument that reduced birth rates are genocide to make it look like Xinjiang getting free healthcare & women who had 3 kids already receiving tubal ligations/ etc. is genocide the same way KKK guys think modernity is white genocide. China literally trained these people to be bilingual realtors and stuff like that, it wasn't even a mega trade program or something. They got people to white collar shit Xinjiang is rich

@conditional_soup If you've heard of the one child policy here's a fun fact none of you "China watchers" know. Most regions and/or minority groups did not get affected. If you were Han or anything in Tibet, or a minority any placd, you could be fruitful and multiply. Just an example of how China deliberately gives minority groups boosted democratic representation, healthcare access, training, and cultural representation. Which is what responsible nations should do (glaring at indian res)

@John_McMurray @cholesterol L-theanine is very inexpensive, it's just an amino acid found in tea which eases jitters. Caffeine itself is good for exercise it's straight-up healthy if you can get to sleep haha

I am wondering whether Putin doesn't have a PR problem, he was clearly warned for the attack in Moscow, so if he doesn't blame anyone else, he clearly has made a mistake?

@sordidone@c.im avatar

@ErikJonker if you think this attack isn't going to improve United Russia's polling even further you may be delusional

@ErikJonker They have a pretty similar parliamentary democracy to the USA and Europe. I really never got the "dictatorship" meme

sordidone,
@sordidone@c.im avatar

@ErikJonker We all have government-run elections which can be bought and influenced by the rich just like Russia. Russia was restructured to a western style parliamentary democracy after the fall of the USSR.
"BUY THE TICKET, TAKE THE RIDE!"

@sordidone@c.im avatar

@ErikJonker I'm not saying I think Russian elections are NOT unfair, but rather they are LEGITIMATELY UNFAIR, in the same way that the US electoral system is. You are just able to legally BUY US elections just like Russia, democracy is a contest to buy the election under our system.

sordidone,
@sordidone@c.im avatar

@ErikJonker I get that the US conception of democracy is when 2 almost identical guys run and come in 49% vs 51% and then the 49%s decide either the Russians or Chinese aided the other side in stealing it. But I think we use this kind of language to skirt around the mechanics of elections in a way that's detrimental to randoms who don't focus on it like us. It doesn't explain stuff like gerrymandering, it focuses on polling and discourse and conspiracy theories like Russiagate.

sordidone,
@sordidone@c.im avatar

@ErikJonker You probably won't like this lol, but consider that it's completely legal to run as a Communist in Russia. Putin's not at all communist, he thinks you can replace communism with Orthodox Christianity (LOL) because they think taking away rights from women and gay people will increase birth rates. Putin fails to understand the agricultural base of civilization and thinks morality is a substitute. BUT he allows communists to run. America shuts down the PSL & CPUSA v well

@PugJesus Why the fuck wouldn't you want to INFODUMP ABOUT US PRESIDENTS AND COLONIZATION. GET AUTISM. GET VACCINATED. I HAVE ALL THE VACCINES AND TURBOAUTISM

sordidone,
@sordidone@c.im avatar

@PugJesus Globalization is to take advantage of reduced labor costs and cheaper raw materials. Of course illegal mining and other types of operations are implicated in this. However the removal of the need for opium fields in Myanmar and Afghanistan (which recently became REALLY UNFRIENDLY to this) is a key motivator for stealing fent from hospitals & manufacturing it in trailers IN THE UNITED STATES. Also less smuggling for the product is huge! Just trafficking it across the US b...

@sordidone@c.im avatar

@PugJesus order is way easier than shipping it across the pacific. Massively reduces costs for transit. This is unless you believe that the Chinese govt is just allowing fentanyl to be manufactured in their country because they hate our freedoms and want to undermine our democracy or w/e

@bobburger @PugJesus It's the proportion of people who live in high income countries (~15%) vs mid/low income

sordidone,
@sordidone@c.im avatar

@bobburger @PugJesus Yea, the Belt and Road initiative is extremely important for breaking low income nations out of the US's IMF+World Bank debt slavery. We don't allow nations to develop food self-sufficiency, nationalize their resources, provide state-run social services like healthcare, on pain of withholding IMF loans and other forms of investment for political reasons. BRI also injects cash into the economy which aid does not. Western aid is economically polarizing.

@sordidone@c.im avatar

@bobburger @PugJesus Don't talk to me about long hours, either. I'm American lmao. There's a reason people are doing those jobs both here and in China: tech work is highly lucrative. Besides, the govt has recently decided they don't want people to be able to sell that much of their lives to code haha. 996 is going the way of the dodo, like the smog.
Turns out you're opposed to the only political force making China actually better by your own metrics, whoops.

@paraphrand They believe this wholeheartedly (they elaborated and deleted), that the Russians conducted a false flag attack on themselves to get support for a war they are already conducting. You could only believe it if you were completely addicted to propaganda.
