"Why can’t we all just get along?" is not a political stance. It oversimplifies the situation while shifting equal blame onto the parties involved, completely ignoring the context of the conflict at hand. Peace cannot be achieved by turning a blind eye to wrongdoings because you don’t want to analyze a situation.

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.

"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"
this is literally me trying to get my life together…
This actuality happens at my work all the time.
I’m so glad my branch of the CPUSA is good about gender stuff. Like there’s noting scandalous like we’re subtly anti-trans or anything. That may sound like a weird thing to say but you’d be surprised how uncommon it can be in the left sometimes. .
A lot of leftist people say stuff like “Western Imperialism creates terrorists”
And then people are like “ARE YOU SAYING WE’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR 9/11”, and then these said leftists end up backing down with shit like “oh no, I”m just saying we need to have a broader conversation about foreign…
I feel like if there ever was threat of a communist revolution in the US, the libertarian party would serve as the counter revolutionary party. Historically capital has flocked to fascists in times of crisis but I can totally see the LP taken over by plutocrats and used in the same way fascism was to stifle proletarian uprisings.
