And what the fuck? How is the PRC intent to reunify the mainland by any means considerable as "colonization"?

Britain here is the colonist, not fucking PRC. Britain fucking stole HK from china in 1842.

In Polonia han fatto una sorta di spin-off ufficiale di Black Mirror chiamato Czarne Lusterko: quattro mini-episodi sullo stampo della serie originale. Vale la pena buttarci un'occhio. I link ai video sono qui (in polacco, ma ci sono i sottotitoli) reddit.com/r/blackmirror/comme

@Gargron Did you forget something? The poll was very clear, but the PR is still closed, with no reply from you.

Screaming ‘Nazi’ in the faces of Trump supporters.

Rugby tackling an old man to the ground.

Throwing milkshake around.

This is not anti-fascism. This is just mental.

Plastic in the ocean misconception, environment 

C'è una panineria nel paesino in cui vivo da un paio d'anni, che fa panini semplicemente fenomenali. Ieri per esempio ho assaggiato questo:

- filetto di maiale
- crema di pistacchi
- asparagi
- fonduta di pecorino

Adoro la provincia.

"MMT gives us the power to imagine truly transformational politics, without getting caught up in meaningless debates about whether we can ‘afford’ it or not. This is also why it is being attacked so fiercely. Not because of its theoretical foundations, but because of the range of economic and political possibilities that it opens up. The bottom line, however, is that MMT is here to stay. The Labour Party can choose to stick to an old neoliberal fiscal paradigm–or it can join the revolution. "

"Ultimately, the ideology of scarcity of money is integral to the maintenance of our deeply unequal relations of power in society. If there’s anything the establishment fears more than the working classes seizing the means of production, it’s the working classes seizing the means of production of money (or more precisely, of currency). You would think that socialists would understand that."

For MMT

Leading proponents of Modern Monetary Theory respond to Tribune's recent article on the topic, arguing that socialists should not be afraid to "seize the means of production of money."

Even though they barely mention it, this is an excellent showcase of the amazing performance Linux KVM (and QEMU!) provides these days.

"[...] If one has to fault the regime, it is in the failure to train troops in crowd control - a mistake that even hard line regime members later admitted. Ironically their later effort to import crowd control equipment was blocked by the United Kingdom acting under the Western arms embargo imposed as a result of the fictitious machine-gun massacre report that their own black information people had almost certainly helped create."

"[...] If one has to fault the regime, it is in the failure to train troops in crowd control - a mistake that even hard line regime members later admitted. Ironically their later effort to import crowd control equipment was blocked by the United Kingdom acting under the Western arms embargo imposed as a result of the fictitious machine-gun massacre report that their own black information people had almost certainly helped create."

"Not a single Western reporter in Beijing that night seems to have bothered to check out what actually happened; presumably they found a much wider audience for their stories of blood and gore.

Fortunately in addition to the U.S. Embassy reports we now have a detailed 1998 study by the Columbia Journalism Review titled <Reporting the Myth of Tiananmen and the Price of a Passive Press> that tracks down <the dramatic reports that buttressed the myth of a student massacre>."

"So whence the machine-gun massacre claim? Here too we do not have to look far — to a story a week later in a pro-British, English-language Hong Kong newspaper written under the name of an alleged student demonstrator claiming to have fled China, but whom no one has been able to find. Front-paged by The New York Times on June 12, it quickly traveled the globe, and we have been living with it in one form or another ever since."

"[...] But by this time the crowds around the square were both large and ominous. The embassy reports note that the regime’s first move was to send in unarmed troops using the subways and easily blocked by the crowds. Armed troops were then sent in with the results we know. But even then only some of the units went berserk (soldiers tend to go that way when some of the comrades are barbecued [...]). Other units tried to restrain them. And the action was outside, not inside, the square."

"To date the world seems to have assumed that those buses were fired by the crowds after the soldiers had started shooting. In fact it was the reverse - that the crowds attacked the buses as they entered Beijing, incinerating dozens of soldiers inside, and only then did the shooting begin. Here too we do need not go far to find the evidence - in the not publicized photos of soldiers with horrible burns seeking shelter in nearby houses, and reports of charred corpses being strung from overpasses"

"Yes, there was something close to a massacre in those streets, with some of the units originally sent to clear the square of students turning their guns wildly on the crowds that had tried to block their approach. And to find out why the soldiers did such an atrocious thing we do not have to look much beyond those widely publicized photos of military buses in rows being set on fire by those protesting crowds."
