GOODBYE YOU PISSANT LITTLE SHIT
@nathan I am so ready to see him pulled out in disgrace. He deserves to die dressed in orange
@siobhan @Scrith @nathan I don't disagree at all. Yet, I think we need to understand/accept why fascism is a powerfully popular idea. Materially, fascism is all BS, but its ideas offer a cornerstone identity through nationalism, strength, and racial hierarchy. To those living in a nation/system in decline these are highly appealing ideas that provide a sense of meaningful identity. I don't feel that leftists have fully grasped or countered this.
@gaysteve @Scrith @nathan I think you have hit the nail on the head. People feel powerless and they sense the nation circling the toilet bowl. We need to appeal both to their sense of logic and emotion, give them a different path for them to look to. We need to inspire actual hope in easy to understand language and get people thinking and doing for themselves. Once we have communities built up, then the revoultion comes.
