and this isn't me claiming prisons are fine as long as they're socialist, socialists locking up drug users or petty thieves is just as wrong, punitively locking up people who are just interpersonally violent (as opposed to fash terrorists) is just as wrong, and so one. my point is that the problem with coercion is always its direction, the mere existence of coercion can't be considered a problem until the class war is fully won

@whalefall @pinkosock @zorotl Found the quote, his house looks "something like an occult bookshop under permanent renovation, with records, videos, magical artefacts and comic-book figurines strewn among shelves of mystical tomes and piles of paper. The bathroom, with blue-and-gold décor and a generous sunken tub, is palatial; the rest of the house has possibly never seen a vacuum cleaner. This is clearly a man who spends little time on the material plane."
1) the cultural revolution didn't have a death count worth mentioning , its always brought up in the death toll of communism specifically to capitalize on how westerners won't know anything about it but will be scared by the name.
2) the chinese government itself was what ended the cultural revolution.
3) there is literally no fucking reason on earth for china to lie about supposed millions of chinese people dead from covid .
4) Tough talk from a country whose response to COVID is an unmatched international failure in every respect
5) fuck the new york times.
