Welcome again to everybody! Make yourself at home. Sit down around the fire place, if you have fire wood, please place it on the rack beside the fire. In the time-honoured tradition of our group, here is our weekly discussion thread!

We have our own Matrix homeserver at https://genzedong.org; you can make an account with any Matrix client (e.g. Element). We also have a GenZedong Matrix room (see the sidebar for more information), and there’s a general Lemmygrad Matrix room at #internationale:genzedong.org.

Short reading list for new MLs here. To find theory (and other books), you can use z-lib, libgen, or Sci-Hub (for scientific articles). If an article is unavailable, try the Wayback Machine.


Are there good resources for Vietnam and Laos? (Admittedly haven’t looked into them much, especially the latter.)

Optional but I would also appreciate stuff for Cuba and the DPRK, I mainly check Granma and KCNA for those two.

what’s with ongoing rhetoric about tiktok that libs are circulating over the internet? empire does the same thing with twitter manipulating foreign governments (twitter files part 8).


Is lemmygrad down for anyone else

nvm its back

So, Texas lost power agian, because it got cold. I hope they get power back soon, and people don’t buy the windmill or unforeseen story this time

Happening all across the US too. My area has been hit with rolling brownouts, even though our rates have increased by exactly 185% over the past year.


Some comrades and I eventually managed to get a little over thirty big bags of clothing and a few boxes of care products to give away to an org in the city ✊🏼 I’m hoping it can become a regular thing

Talk about Christmas spirit! Great work, comrade.


I went on a spiral by reading a report from a free market think tank and then came across some self described “centrist liberal” news site, with their token non-white authors of course.

And they are all so bad. Like not only through their misuse of statistics, but in general, I can’t help but after reading it their very Western, and White, worldview that plagues everything they write.

Not to mention their protestations of “trans ideology”.

The rest are just some funny quotes I like to share with you all.

It’s time for us all to recognise that China is hostile to the West, and bent on world domination by any means. We need to bite the bullet and be prepared to pay extra for products not made in China.

After reading that, I genuinely burst out into tears. I was expecting something more sadistic, ie. justifying war, but instead it’s the painfully liberal “lets not buy any made in China products”, that broke me.

You make an excellent point, imo. The fear I have for the West is not China, but the so-called progressive movement. It has become detached from reality and, among other things, seeks to silence (aka cancel) its critics and redefine language to suit its own ends. It is attempting to dismantle the freedom of speech you identify as so important. So far, the progressives seem to be winning. Western society so lacks core values it seems incapable, even unwilling, to effectively oppose the progressive nonsense. China’s greatest threat is its own totalitarian ideology, not the West. The West’s greatest threat is its homegrown progressive ideology. I don’t know how we stop the internal rot.

Both taken from the comments of this article, which is funny in on itself.

And of course this amazing quote from this article:

One of the signature aspects of the culture war is the weaponisation of history, particularly by the new, academically-aligned Left. Decolonisation now dominates thinking about university curricula, as well as hiring practice, while museums have embraced its agenda with open arms.

The first sentence already a marvel to read.

Meanwhile, the ongoing return of Benin Bronzes from museums and, most enthusiastically of all, from Cambridge (116 are in the latest planned shipment back to Nigeria) involves an even more naked use of history as a grenade; most reports on the Bronzes’ return don’t even refer to the massacre of the British that preceded the looting, nor the fact that they belonged to slave-traders in the first place.

NOOO not the deaths of colonizers. I’m crying rn.

The head of Mozart Group PMC (Milburn) and the 25th Secheslav Airmobile Brigade (Ukrainian) have confirmed that Ukrainian casualties in Bakhmut are as high as 70%. According to the brigade:

“This is a message we are conveying to the command of the Airborne Troops and the command of the AFU from the 3rd Airmobile Company of the Separate Airmobile Battalion of the 25th Secheslav Airmobile Brigade.

We were sent on a combat mission to hold separate combat positions. We did not receive proper armament and artillery support. As a result, 70% of the company was killed or wounded. We did not have and do not have combat equipment and proper armament. We did not even have the equipment to evacuate the injured, due to which several wounded did not survive.

We spent more than a month in the trenches transmitting coordinates never fired upon by artillery. Platoon sergeants fled their positions in the first days and were transferred by Chief of Staff Kipinach, now acting battalion commander. We are demanding the transfer of the entire unit.”


I love the european health system! I need to spend 2k euros just to keep my luxury bones!

Just discovered the national health (and mental health, pedagogy and a lit of other stuff) state company can sell my data to insurance companies, data brokers and “loss-adjusters” I can’t see how this can go wrong…


My country is about to re-introduce mandatory military service, but with a twist, now it isn’t mandatory, but if you do it you’ll be “heavily helped” in regards to school votes etc, they’re basically coercing people with bad grades (basically 80% of young Italians, according to a statistic I just made up) to enroll and fight for nato interest, at least its 40 days and not 2 years like before (but still, in case of war [and the threat is there] it will be prolonged indefitievly)

Step 1: gut education, double gut public education

Step 2: lament falling grades and quality of life

Step 3: promise a way out in exchange for murdering some children to further interests of the capital noble service to democracy


Some madlad in the group I collect clothes with for school wrote a statement we’re putting out saying structural change is needed, people shouldn’t be dependent on a week of grace from rich people and that the politicians wearing buttons for the nationwide action, while at the same time making budget cuts year round, can absolutely go and fuck themselves. And sent it to the school.

And it wasn’t even me lol. I’m shook y’all. People are getting radical.

I gotta ask, anyone know what happened to Grace? I remember they were a pretty active mod on reddit and here for a while but then fell off the face of the planet.


i made boba tea today :D
