I’m a leftist. That’s about as specific as I care to label myself. Over the leftist infighting and looking to do some actual irl organizing once the pandemic is over. On here to learn about labor organizing as much as I am here to share my nature findings.
Willing to talk politics. I haven’t read a lot of theory, mostly because I’m a slow reader and I’d rather read things that are less tedious, but also because I’m tired of being told I need to read theory to be a true leftist. 😘 #introduction
US Senators, most if not all of whom are millionaires, passed a resolution forbidding a raise in the minimum wage during the pandemic, whereupon they will have to come up with another excuse.

Something that drives me screaming up the wall is when people are talking about a thing they did or made out of stuff then they tag on "I got it/them from amazon" at the end of what they're saying.
People need to stop that shit *immediately* yes I get you ordered it on the internet and thats groovy but amazon is not the marketplace of the internet it's a direct, pointed threat to the world and on top of that, a terrible option for obtaining things from the internet. Don't goddamn recommend it?

Marxist-Leninists often claim anarchists are utopian for believing society can be stateless and classless without having to first resort to authoritarianism. I would argue that it is in fact the Marxist-Leninists that are utopian. A transitionary state to a classless and stateless society has never worked. Every Marxist state has failed before it ‘withered away’. The only group to ever achieve ’full communism’ was the Korean People’s Association in Manchuria and they were anarchists.
