For the Philippines, there's the Philippine News Agency and PTV for state-owned news. Both of them are good sources for getting the PH government's anti-communist POV and propaganda for their Chinese overlords.

Rappler is pretty reliable for online-oriented news, though it has a liberal bias. Also has no RSS or Atom, which sucks. Bulatlat provides news in a leftist, progressive point of view. And of course, there's the Philippine Star and the Daily Inquirer, which are also reliable newspapers in the Philippines.

I don't even consider myself an anarchist, but damn, they really believe that their elections work, and aren't rigged to only serve the oppressors?

The West is unsalvageable

But the reason I oppose reparations, and often hear from others, is that it is mediated through the state and capital. As any reparations in terms of land or wealth upholds commodification. As well reparations is often seen, and I agree, as reformist.

This is a dogmatic view of things. The reason why armed struggle exists is because the state won't give back the things they stole from other people without giving a fight. If the state, somehow, becomes generous and gives back the land without any bloodshed, why should we turn it down?

Tactics needs to be diversified. Armed struggle and peaceful, legal struggle should go hand-in-hand, not alone. Otherwise, the struggle would surely go down in defeat.

To be fair, your writings are often incomprehensible to us that it's blurring the line between seriousness and humor. You should probably link to the reference next time. :P

But that might probably ruin the joke. I guess nigahiga was right after all: all jokes are offensive now.
