It was actually on the prolewiki discord, and I think possibly in a restricted channel. Really the kind of the thing that I never expected would go out but I decided to own up to my mistake and accept the guess. However, as per the rules, Anna had to make the guess public on lemmygrad which I hoped would have finally settled the question for most people!
Comrades it’s time to learn how to say “I surrender and will help you” in Chinese. I’m not even joking, as much as we want to avoid a war, and China wants to avoid a war, this is the only tool Washington knows to use when their influence declines. And it’s been declining for too long. You think there won’t be a war? Unlikely. The imperial core coaxed Russia into invading Ukraine.
Yeah I don’t get that:
The creator of the video noted in the YouTube video description that the first 52 seconds showed sped-up video. In reality, the train carefully advanced on the tracks about seven times slower than what appeared in the video.
The video admits the video was sped-up, and then snopes notes that “however” it was sped up?
Lol I have sponsorblock and so the video started as “This video is made possibly by … Russia and China”
Btw if it’s lib cringe, you should repost it to !email@example.com as per new instance-wide rules and delete from genzedong.
I dislike ChatGPT’s attitude tbh. Which asks very interesting questions about AI and our relation to it. But regardless, I don’t like the “know-it-all” attitude and reluctance to agree with and help you, especially when half the info it gives is false and you have to double-check it yourself.
But I did manage to make ChatGPT agree that the 1931-33 famine in the USSR was mostly the result of natural causes and not deliberately manufactured.
I’ve had to run critAI all night, but here’s the result:

Yeah, it had some issues forming a coherent interpretation of the sentence so I had to help it a bit. Anyway, after a while of retrying it got the gist of what you wanted. I think.

At this point I tried feeding it the query again, hoping rebooting would fix it:

It automatically printed out a log on my line printer and essentially from what I can tell reading over the BASIC, the AI got confused between comments and posts. It wasn’t sure what you were asking.

Prostitution is indeed not work. In a work or labour relationship, the proletariat sells their labour power; their capacity to work is their commodity. Prostitutes are those who have not even that labour power to sell and so they must resort to selling the only thing they have left, their own body. Thus they live on the fringe of the proletariat class and experience oppression in its purest, harshest form. This comes from Esperanza’s medium article, an ex-prostitute. She also doesn’t use the term sex work because she was a prostitute meeting up with clients in their cars or motels, not an onlyfans content creator or a camgirl.
And this relationship of being even below the oppressed class has existed throughout history. Some slaves were not r*ped, but many slave women were. In feudalism, serfs were tied to the land and had to work on it. Prostitutes were even lower than the serf as they could not work on the land for whatever reason, which meant they were of no use to the lord and thus not allowed his protection.
Prostitutes are even exploited by the proletariat itself (and indeed were exploited by their own class in history); proletarian men create a false consciousness for themselves where they seek to attain bourgeois status and thus buy the services of the prostitute. It is inter-class warfare.
Prostitutes are proletariat but do not perform labour. Tbh there’s some marxism that goes out the window in some people the moment this topic comes up, as if prostitution was something inherently different or special to consider under its own rules. There’s petit-bourgeois women in porn, and there’s the proletarian victims that get trafficked by pimps. The two never intersect even if their job is the same. The victims need help to get out of this situation and an actual solution. The petit bourgeois will get with the program and get an actually productive job no matter how much they loathe it.
Pornography and prostitution is not sex at all. The two are completely different and only resemble each other superficially.
Calling people prudes over this issue is something that I address in an essay I wrote some time ago (linked in another comment here). It effectively shuts down any possible discussion before it even happens because one can just say “oh you just don’t like sex!” and leave it at that.
The implied link to reactionary forces (missionaries, puritans) with this argument is intellectually dishonest to do to another comrade.
It’s also why more people are killed by trains in the US than places that rely way more on rail and have way more trains in extremely dense downtowns. Like China, Japan, and the EU.
That makes sense. Technically all the people that died/will die from the derailment in Ohio (very weird to type that out) should be counted as killed by a train.
No it makes sense. 4channers are contrarians at heart. Their white supremacism comes from a different place than liberals.
Both MLK and Malcolm X talked about the white liberals and how at least with the openly racist conservatives/fascists, they knew they were an enemy, but the white liberal would look like your friend until he stabbed you in the back.
At heart we have a fundamental difference in that 4channers are contrarians and liberals (which include trumpists) are followers.
The 4channer would totally say the same things and even worse if the government supported Russia over Ukraine. Let’s not forget they committed their share of shootings too.
Edit: and that’s my problem also with these “the worst person you know just made a great point” or “broken clock is right twice a day”. Every time you say that, you cede ground to fascists, comrades. Every time you see that happening is an instance where we could have been there saying the same thing from our POV, but we didn’t.
Fascists are never truthful, they only ever twist words to get what they need out of them. If we let them be the face of the anti-war movement, then that’s what they will become. And anti-war people will rally to them.
Oh that was an issue back when Lemmy came out too. You can make a report on the git: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues if it’s not there already
Crimes registered as hate crimes against people that self-identify as Asian.
With that said while I don’t have the numbers themselves, I would bet more than 90% of those crimes were targetting Chinese people, the media just rebrands it as “Asian” to not draw attention to that fact.
I say targetting because the dipshits that attacked Asian people for being Chinese actually managed to attack Koreans or Japanese people sometimes.
I think the obvious answer is clearly https://en.prolewiki.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Non-Aggression_between_Germany_and_the_Union_of_Soviet_Socialist_Republics haha
It’s gonna be like Ukraine if there’s a war, Taiwan will receive supplies from NATO, as many as it takes.
This serves two purpose, amplify propaganda and try to bleed the enemy slowly (Whether it’s China or Russia), cause they also have to commit resources to their war.
Taiwan however has one major difference, it’s an island just off the coast of big Chinese cities. A blockade will definitely weather them down quickly, that is however if NATO can’t get them some supplies.
China also considers Taiwan their province, and so they consider everyone on it as their countrymen and citizens (if I’m not mistaken on that last part). So I doubt they would intentionally start starving the people out. Maybe organise corridors so they can leave for China, idk.
To be honest, China as a government is more intelligent than we give them credit for. They’ve studied the fall of the Soviet Union, they’ve studied NATO, and they are studying the war in Ukraine.
Look at the BRI in Africa, the US is completely powerless against it. They can’t do anything no matter how much they try to vilify China. The only people this shit works on is Europe cause we still look up to the US lol.
US is trying to provoke China into invading Taiwan, which China is not replying to. The military drills last year after Pelosi’s visit were a good show of force. It was like, we’re absolutely allowed to do drills, and just in case you forgot how strong our army is now, here’s a reminder. Nothing more (in my opinion). Personally I don’t think an invasion is likely at all. At most they might have a plan from the 70s drafted somewhere in a super secure vault haha
Come on, don’t be like that, you knew this was coming eventually…
