    Pro-tip: If die-hard capitalist media claims to be concerned about Marxists, just close the article and go do something productive with your time.


    So you are calling for war because you want to make profit over the backs of the Chinese people? How about fuck off?

    Oh lol, the local Trot thinks he knows anything.
    Go be a tankie somewhere else, please.

    I know its hard for you to understand what happens if a small group controlls a country, but maybe one day you will.

    Yea, when you live under a communist regime and another type of communist regime wants to take hold the communists in power aren't friendly like capitalists are. That's why there's so many Marxists and lennenists on these forums, discord, etc; because they will never, ever take hold in a country that is already this deep into capitalism, like America. It's a far away pipe dream to the larpers that exist, for some weird ass reason, in gaming centric communities. Thank God Trump was elected. We're safe from civil war for at least 5 more years.

    No it is not even surprising. In the Soviet revolution in Russia, the communists embraced all kinds of marginalized groups and subversive elements to ferment revolt. Once the revolt occurred and they were in charge, the first thing the communists did was purge the subversives that helped them into power. It would be like the far left in the United States championing gay rights or women's rights or immigrant rights until they spurred a revolt, overthrew the government and installed a communist dictatorship in its place, and then turning right around and murdering all the gays and illegals and stripping women of all their rights because they no longer need subversive ideas and instead need stability. The gays / illegals / women are used as pawns by the left and then fodder to be discarded once the objective is met.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    We all know how damaging Winnie the Pooh is as a cultural symbol of western oppression; it sure is smart and not at all pathetically idiotic how they banned him in China.

    If you want your authoritarian dictatorship to appear more beneficent, you should tell them not to do painfully stupid stuff like that; it really gives away their whole shtick.

    "it would be like this thing happening, therefore, this thing must be what's going to happen."

    Not quite. I've yet to see "the leftists" throw gays or women under the bus after having "achieved an objective."

    There's a reason why Trotskyism hasn't given the world a single revolution, ever.

    The point is that colonialism is nothing new.

    China is also actively involved in a soft power colonialism right now too in the creation of the new silk road. Chinese engineers, Chinese workers, predatory loans on the infrastructure they are helping to build.

    Everyone has blood on their hands.

    It is ironic. Not that China is actually a communist state (It's been a cronyist state for longer than I've been alive). It's that it still tries to create an illusion of being a communist state while cracking down on communist. It's still called the "People's Republic of China", with the Red banner so common to communist states.

    It's still better than it was 40-50 years ago (When it was still a socialist state).

    Back in the days of the USSR the KGB would make contact with foreign communist and assist them with spreading pro communist and sovjet propaganda, however once they had served their purpose the most idealistic of them were assassinated by the same KGB because they figured that once those who truly believed in communism would wake up to the nightmare they helped create they would turn their back on the new system and become dangerous enemies.

    No one cares it's not some middle eastern country administering the oppression. We just have a huge boner for Arabs in general, not so much for Asia.
