Welcome again to everybody! Make yourself at home. Sit down in that chair over there. Take off your shoes. I’m not cleaning mud off the floor. In the time-honoured tradition of our group, here is our weekly discussion thread!

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.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.
We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
Can someone suggest me good soviet movies on the Russian revolution? I’m doing a thing for class
Lately I keep going back and forth between mentally stable and negative spirals and I don’t know why. It’s becoming a bit exhausting.
I think three years of covid crisis that went straight into a new crisis are finally catching up with my mental state.
On a more positive side: we had a protest today in Brussels with more than a thousand people and I became an uncle this weekend. It’s not all doom.

Send a company wide mail today asking for input for the Youth movement the party wants me to set up, considering there’s lots of young people at my place of work. Some Communications Manager replied that I can’t do this, putting the CEO in the CC 😭😭
All the other replies were really positive with a few people even willing to volunteer, so his ass ain’t gonna stop me.
what have you done to your avatar
I can’t even recognize you anymore
It’s back with a twist

I hate it as well. I change it from time to time but it never works out
Today I paid 15€ for the same grocery list that costed me 10€ few mints ago
There´s a Nasserist party in Yemen
I must admit that I got used to the cold of not heating my house pretty fast. Like, it’s not ideal nor is it freezing yet, but so far it’s nothing a blanket couldn’t fix. And I kinda like my bedroom being cold for some reason. I sleep great really.
It’s still a stupid situation to be in though.
the PSTU party from Brazil is supporting China’s protests against the lockdown, so we can already have confirmation that these protests are being exaggerated by the western in yet another chapter of the hybrid war against china, and still repeating the same proposal when did the first lockdowns start in china For those who don’t know, this party is infamous for supporting extreme US policy coups and every time they always fall into American propaganda, the most famous case is when they support the coup in Ukraine in 2014
The protests in Shanghai and Beijing were also within a 1km distance of the US embassies lol, they even resorted to paying people $100-200 USD to pick up signs and attend the protests in some cases.
One protester even said “be careful, there are foreign elements trying to take advantage of this” and immediately was pushed away by said foreign elements lmao.
Lol whut, where did you see that?
From this guy lol (he previously also exposed certain immigration companies paying overseas diaspora channels to spread ‘China bad’ ideology to people within the mainland to entice them to immigrate), it’s all in Chinese though unfortunately.
I should really resume learning Chinese D:

North West USA, never been to the south lol
Belgian government decided to allow companies to not raise wages above the index (yearly wage adjustment in line with inflation) for the next two years. There’s also a cheque for employees of 750 euro’s instead of a raise.
The unions are showing balls and refuse to accept it. They are already announcing actions ✊🏼 they are on fire.
Like, I’m really impressed by the unions. There’s lukewarm measures to help the people and they go like: ‘nah, that’s not it mate. We’re going out again.’
It really makes you feel valued as a worker.
I wish our unions where more like that. My union in particular refuses to strike, and even the word is said in hushed tones.
An union that doesn’t want to strike lol. That’s so strange.
One of our party officials came out today saying Stalin is a mass murderer, but that he also did good thing for the proletarian movement. Which, between this, ‘Stalin is a bad guy and should be banned from our thought’, and ‘Stalin did nothing wrong’ has to be the dumbest take on the topic you can get. Because right now you are saying you have no problem with a genociding maniac. Like, what do you want to gain with this.
Our national politics and statements are solid, but the party is weird on foreign topics sometimes. The same goes with Uyghurs, which the party just ignores when it comes up. They support China on this but will never outright say that. I get that it would make you an easy target but sometimes you’ve got to come out for your views.
It caused some trouble within the party today.
A family member just got in a motobike accident last week. Situation was so much messed up, having to suture a lot of wounds on the head and cast a broken wrist. This is gonna be a huge blow to us financially since my family has no insurance.
Those memes about US healthcare hits home because we dont have health insurance since dad quitted his old job years ago. I’ve practically been shafted since he got resigned a Japanese cement company after getting an unfavorable, insulting reassignment after faithfully serving for almost three decades, only to be rewarded like this. He had a burning hatred for Japanese work culture as a result, and little did he know, it planted the first seeds of radicalization towards being an actual communist from an immature who thinks the Soviet anthem is funny and coping with communist memes to cope with a toxic environment in a Christian school during junior high, with the developing of hatred toward foreign powers in general.
Duterte then became president and the actual change began. I went from naive lib who expected him to fullfill some wehraboo-esque anti-China fantasies to understanding why Duterte wants to work with China. And I saw the memes about American war crimes and the rise of the alt-right fascists there, and seeing the news about how the US is tattered in pieces and discovering more atrocities they committed as I studied history. I was already a baby leftist at that point who got misguided in a leftypol server crawling with groypers and femboys.
In short, I became a Marxist because I’m tierd of being fucked over in an illegally occupied puppet state. A lot of American kids think its edgy to be a Marxist, or became one because their gender identity got spat on by fascists. Find my bootstraps? You have to kill like its fucking Squid Game to get them bootstraps in US-occupied Philippines. Had I been born in China, I could have actually pursued my dreams there, I know I could get a job there to serve the Motherland rather than engaging in some Darwinian competition only to be sold like prostitutes to assholes for employers like fucking Qatar.
I’m in my 20s, out of school in the meantime because uni practically rejected me, recommend any ML orgs in the Philippines not affiliated with the CPP-NPA, preferably favorable to Moscow and Beijing. Also I’m not in Manila, I’m in the bumfuck of nowhere,… really needed to get out of the screen and actually join actual civic activity for once.
