And their sources are... a disgruntled political exile, the Socialist-Revolutionary party, and a White Army general. Given how many tales of atrocities committed by the Soviet Union have already been debunked, and given how they were all spread by political enemies of the Bolsheviks (like the three sources listed here), I think it's reasonable to ask for better, less biased sources.

You're conflating state with government. A state is defined as the parts of a government that are used to keep one class in power over another. If classes have disappeared, then you'd be left with a government, but no state.

The scenario I'm referring to is where classes have disappeared (and therefore so has the state), but mass shootings are still happening. I'm not sure that this scenario could actually happen, because I think part of the reason mass shootings occur is due to the material conditions of capitalism, but let's say for the moment that mass shootings are still happening, albeit less frequently. In this case, if the government decided to enact gun control measures, it wouldn't be a "state-ish" action, because it wouldn't be holding any one class in submission. It would just be to prevent shootings, mass or otherwise.

Rubbernecking before concealing (looking back and forth to see if anyone is watching you). If someone is watching, that's a dead giveaway that you were about to conceal. Instead, use your peripheral vision to check if anyone else is in the aisle with you (assuming you're facing a shelf). It's far more subtle.

Also, if you're new to lifting, give this guide a read.

The liberals who are advocating for gun control have their hearts in the right place, but they don't understand the necessity for revolution. A revolution requires an armed working class. By advocating for gun control, they are actually acting against the interests of the working class (but they're doing so out of ignorance, not malice).

Once the revolution has succeeded and society is well on the way to full communism, then we can talk about gun control.

Oh hell yes. I was so pissed about a year ago when Youtube updated their UI for the hundredth time, and it gave you a completely blank page if you had Javascript turned off. Now I can actually browse for videos the old way, instead of using youtube-dl on duckduckgo's search results, and hoping it's the right video.

Mad props to the people who made this.
