Still mad at China's brutal authoritarian government for imprisoning Julian Assange after his journalism exposed Chinese war crimes.

~

Arresting people for future crimes is called "pre-crime," and it's the stuff of dystopian horror fiction.

Violently dominating an entire planet because another country might hurt yours in the future is called "US foreign policy," and it's the stuff of mainstream news punditry.

~

Saying a US politician is bad on foreign policy but good on domestic policy is a bit like saying "Yeah my boyfriend murders hitchhikers, but he cooks."

~

Dominant revolutionary thought consistently fails to adequately appreciate the power of oligarchic propaganda and its ability to manipulate the way people think, act and vote. Until this changes, there will be no revolution.

~

I was upset the Democrats nominated a candidate with a decades-long track record of reactionary warmongering corporate cronyism, but I changed my mind when I learned he has a "task force" where vaguely left-wing voices are allowed to speak words into a hole in the ground.

~

"Obamagate" will not lead to anything. Since 2016, both mainstream US parties have been saying the other party is about to be obliterated any minute now by scandalous revelations, and they're always wrong. Both parties are pure swamp; you cannot use the swamp to drain the swamp.

If you still believe that one of America's two mainstream parties is about to be brought to its knees by earth-shattering revelations any minute now, I highly recommend you also take up watching WWE, because you'll definitely love it.
