If you mean individually, earn lots of money. If you mean as a global community, tackle the climate crisis head on.



What exactly do you mean by this? A citizen of China? Which province; which language? Do you wish to be born as someone who only speaks Mandarin despite their Chinese parents’ native tongue being one of the hundreds of other Chinese languages?

The categorization of ‘Han Chinese’ as an ethnic group is false nationalist propaganda. It is an arbitrary racial grouping. There is no such thing as A Chinese Culture, there are countless Chinese cultures. “Chinese” is an umbrella term legitimised only by the massive influence of the state and has nothing to do with the actual diversity of its peoples. Each of the so-called subgroups of ‘Han Chinese’ are NOT dialect groups but in fact full-fledged ethnolinguistic groups. The uniformity of Chinese people is spread by communists to erase minority cultures and languages and force them to assimilate into their imaginary ethnic group. China has more languages than the whole of europe, and the preposterous categorization of say Hakka or Wu or Yue or Min as merely dialects of a Chinese language is how a dominant people destroy the multiplicity of its societies. It’s why China government officials will vomit up the sheer ignorance to say “96% Chinese Tibetans can speak Tibetan” and happily continue to ban the use of the dozens of other ‘non-standard’ indigenous Tibetan languages. It’s how the Chinese diaspora all over the world are losing their mother tongues to Standard Mandarin. It’s how every Muslim in Xinjiang is being surveillanced. The moral of the story is FUCK IMPERIALIST CHINA!!!



On 13 March 2022, a driver was speeding around with two of his passengers throwing firecrackers out the window at padestrians. A man (55) and a child (10–15) were hospitalised after getting hit-and-run. The car was taken out of the river later the same day.

fucked up that arguments being made here is for the buyer rather than the worker/slave.


admin mark this as duplicate and close it


also, this has been broufht up b4 and is getting a rather dull

smell and stink are different. OP was ambiguous as to whether the smell their parents refer to was stink.


i agree, some people buy into the capitalist order to never smell like yourself with soaps and perfumes and deodarents that they probably don’t even know what they smell like anymore


dependency theory since the pillage of the americas



Narrow aesthetic interpretations impacting conservation efforts. Why should people love butterflies more than beetles? Why prioritize ‘cute’ mammals over the vastly more important but abstract notion of biodiversity of insects and worms and other arthropods?


Ive been trying to find stories of personal experiences in relation to this heatwave but its harder than it seems. Like just to learn how different people are handling it there.



i was kind of a bully in some cases. not surpising given that i was raised with british (european) colonial ideologies
