I watched Ready Player One recently and it started out as like a decent (like bare minimum and on the nose shit) critique of capitalism and alienation and then it ended up just checking boxes for nostalgia and just being a gamer circlejerk. It feels almost like they purposefully changed the tone about halfway through just to like shit on gamers who eat up the media unironically and don't get that this whole thing is a critique of them and their passive culture.

So then have the people count the votes.

Cuba, for instance, has all votes counted in public where any member of the community can watch them. That’s why, in conjunction with their many other democratic safeties, Cuba has maintained socialism and its popularity despite soviet-style socialism collapsing around the world.

As we wrote almost a year ago, the protest movement in January 2018 shook the mullah regime to its foundations. Behind the thousands of poor-middle-class and working-class youth who took the streets, stood the millions of poor, desperate and deprived working masses, burning with indignation against the corrupt status ruling class. Since then, nothing has been solved. Those people are now coming to the fore, led by the Iranian working class which is beginning, once more, to enter the arena of struggle. With it have also revived the radical traditions that brought the workers to the cusp of power in 1979. The regime is terrified of the prospect of a working-class uprising. It knows full well that, once the movement of the workers acquires a generalised character, there is nothing on the planet that will be able to stop it.
