Just about the correct direction for anti-capitalism in general. I don’t know what to believe exactly, I don’t really have an overarching worldview beyond some very loose conception of libertarian marxism.

And organizing doesn’t really help at all with understandig when the only people doing anything around me are Trots or the DSA.

Ah, I understand. Didn’t know about their social media presence. This article refers to them with he/him pronouns.

I suppose you’re right about that, but I think that if a radical is not already acting they likely won’t act at all. The radicals I know are either protesting or too busy with jobs to do anything.

Who’s she? You mean Will? Also, I understand how it’s different from self-immolation, but in reality the results will not be much different. The media will ignore as much of his message as they can and obscure what they can’t ignore, specifically to ensure that he doesn’t become a martyr.

The reformist left is phenomenally good at taking credit for what they had no part in and using that as proof of their own historical success. You’re exactly right about their weird gaslighting, it’s fundamental for the perpetuation of their ideology.

Of course Jacobin is trying to whitewash it, the whole point of the reformist left is to elevate first world workers into labour aristocrats rather than creating the conditions to ‘transition peacefully to socialism’ as they claim.

Reformism is necessarily imperialist and in settler-colonial nations it is also necessarily white supremacist.

Neoliberalism didn't work. So they tried neoliberalism. That didn't work so now they're trying neoliberalism.

This comment is pretty plainly saying that the Greek people are idiots who think trying neoliberalism over and over again is the way out of the crisis. It’s simply not true, the Greek people voted for Syriza because they wanted radical change, nobody knew just how compromised Tsipras was until the EU referendum.

This shit is horrifying, I was too caught up in my own personal life that I forgot about politics and now it’s all coming back to me very fast. I’m so angry and I feel so fucking helpless, I don’t know what to do. Im going to a protest soon and I guess i’m gonna start putting up graffiti, but there ain’t much else for me.

thank god all my extended family lives elsewhere so we have somewhere to go, but Im very scared for my friends and comrades who are going to be caught up in this with no way out.

I just don’t know what to do, i just dont know what to fucking do
