my name is alyaza, and politics are kinda my thing outside of shitposting on the internet about gryphons
i write about revolution sometimes, and also have a pet ideology project i work on which involves the total abolition of property so that's neat i guess (feel free to ask abt that one!)
i am probably an anarchist but labels are confusing so i haven't adopted one yet
birds are neat and so is the environment and solarpunk
one field leftists seem to not focus on often that is super important and incredibly inhibited by capitalism is journalism
in no universe should the news be a business, but it literally needs to be in a capitalist system like everything else and because of that, many places around the world are literally not able to sustain a journalistic presence and suffer because of it
tbt that time clickhole just posted the entirety of moby dick under one of their headlines
real puffinposting hours
lol @ the base getting all their shit leaked to the guardian over the course of several days
@alyaza shitty conspiracy theory: HRC and H.R. Clinton are both shitty neoliberals whaaaat does it mean!
you should not ignore the power of people like joe rogan and it is important to utilize them to reach their audience because of the sorts of people who watch these shows--however, that does not mean you need to go out of your way to defend the shitty takes of people like rogan or ignore the fact that many of them have fundamentally reactionary takes on many issues that conflict with leftist values
in light of the joe rogan sanders endorsement thing thing, here is a reminder that:
you can recognize that these people can be used as useful idiots for the left to propagandize to the sort of disaffected white men who would otherwise become reactionaries and fascists--but at the same time that we do not need to and should not pander to people like rogan just because they happen to be useful idiots due to their elevation of harmful rhetoric against minorities and LGBT+ people
@alyaza super cool! 🌄
