This posts gives me a bad spine of being astroturfing. Site is shite and only lists a dozen or so persons mainly for feminism/anti-discrimination stuff.

We would be arguing semantics, I would rather have genocide for the narrow cases of mass-systematic-killings.

(I would agree that it is a cultural genocide in both cases but not a genocide)

EDIT: Just to clarify, there were also genocides of first nations in the Americas, what I was refering to was a modern forced reeducation policy in Canada.

I think that reporting on those issues is important but most posts/comments become slandarous about how China is evil in itself and how it is a dystopic country while overshadowing incarceration rates of PoC in the US and equal or worse treatment of muslism in "western" countries. (For example, US Guantanamo Bay held Uyghurs for a while https://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_Uyghur_detainees_at_Guantanamo_Bay and Europe is plagued with Islamophobia)

On the other hand, there is evidence that some sort of cultural reeducation is taking place at least similar to those that happened in the Americas with First Nations. (Canadian example: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Canadian_Indian_residential_school_system ) and 1 million is an overblown number, most estimates are around 30-60 reeducation facilities holding at most 120,000 Uyghurs total.

I don't think this issue should be considered as a genocide and it is prone for easy shots at China / Communist Party of China, but it is inline with how empires have acted and will continue to act. What should be forbidden is both denialism ("those are capitalist/western lies") and cheap dishonest shots at China ("China is killing 1 billion Uyghurs/muslism/minorities per year") since both are a diservice to the Uyghur struggle.

I concede that China is somewhat capitalist but State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and the government still play an explicit direct roll in economic activity that can be reflected on how effectively they have been building high speed railways and renewable energy (Plus, almost all electric buses are in China) since they invested directly rather than leave "the market to sort it out".

A lot of developing nations/communities/localities have compliance issues; however as China has been developing and improving their incomes their attention has shifted to improving quality of life and they have been having a war on pollution this past years:

Spartakusbund / Die Rote Fahne (Rosa Luxemburgo et al) sucesfully take and hold Berlin from 1919 onwards either trough the SPD underestimating the forces and just sending some police for them instead of Freikorps or trough more powerful revolutionaries. (More and better socialism in the world and Hitler can't rise to power)

I would argue that facism is maximally worse. (No other ideology is worse but won't argue that there aren't comparably bad idoelogies)

The following are dope and definetly not bad:

  • Communism (from each acording to their ability, to each acording to their need)
  • Socialism (from each acording to their ability, to each acording to their contribution)
  • etc
