If one is an “anti tankie”, then it must follow that one must be against these kinds of policies.
Progressives and leftists DREAM of having these things. But they’re committed to being against the tankies.
They have yet to demonstrate how the masses are supposed to get these benefits by negotiating and appealing to the good graces of capitalists.
But they’re TERRIFIED at the prospect that the people.may do these exact things AT GUNPOINT. As if they know those guns are meant for them.
This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.

Genuinely. Do you seriously have an issue with folks who want to hurt the common prosperity and welfare of the masses living a life of terror?
Can you walk us through what you mean? Because forcing the common prosperity and security of the masses at gun point is unironically the most moral and right thing to do.
Frankly. I seriously think these “socialists” who want to means test socialism should be put in prison.

I guess I’m just more of a fan of going about it through the use of industrial unionization, rather than using state power and hoping that centralized power doesn’t corrupt those who wield it.
LoL. Aight, sib.
