Real talk, the early kawaii movement was pretty damn punk, as it deliberately opposed laws created to enforce a specific style of writing in schools.


shotgun_ninja

Also, apparently Josef Stalin's granddaughter is an antiques dealer and cosplayer in Oregon.


tarantulachick

wait, fr? thats dope


art_thou_stupid

It still is for sure, it has many subcultures and is practiced all around the world


shotgun_ninja

One of my favorite trends has been the Western kawaii men movement, where dudes push back against traditional masculinity by being adorable.


art_thou_stupid

Yes, kawaii is a great vehicle for people to push against harmful ideas like that.

I don't think Grimes has or ever will care about communism. She's always been a rich privileged grifter who cares more about hollow rhetoric and aesthetics than actually caring or understanding things.

Behind the Bastards did a pretty good two-parter on Musk as a whole. [Here](https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-behind-the-bastards-29236323/episode/part-one-i-do-not-like-63419860/) is the link to the first episode. If you aren't a podcast person, the tl;dr regarding misogyny comes both from comments he has made and the reporting of people he has dated about his extremely weird, extremely specific demands of control over his partners. One of those women wrote an [article](https://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/a5380/millionaire-starter-wife/) about the experience which is referenced in the podcast.

HappyMilkXD

Implying Millenials/Feminists/transfolk/NBs/whoever the last panel is meant to represent does not belong to the working class.


SkulGurl

Seriously! Plenty of people who look like that work jobs like the one being shown to the left, and plenty more probably would if there were less discrimination


HappyMilkXD

Nononono. Only white able-bodied cismales with non-dyed hair are the proletariat. /s


[deleted]

And there is plenty of need for other jobs besides ones like the one being shown to the left. We like to fetishize sweaty physical labor but there's more to a modern society than, like, coal mining and steelworking.


supamario132

But communism is when everyone mines coal for some unknown reason!


xCobra-Commanderx

I mean sure everybody has a job. But I don’t see much Marxist Leninism in America. Especially Workers. Most Western Radicals are ignorant on things like the Soviet Union to the point where they are afraid to talk to Workers about it.


starm4nn

What actual good does talking to workers about the soviet union cause? Wouldn't it be better to talk to them about unions?


DesertBrandon

Yeah it won’t really matter. Any lesson learning from things like the Soviet unión, Paris commune, factional disagreements and polemics are more useful for cadre and the further we get from these events the less they will be readily applicable. We are arguably(or for more experienced Marxist already have) come up against the limitations of a lot of Marxist writings already. Capitalism in a lot of ways are the same as a century ago but in more ways it’s not. That is why dialectical materialism is so important cause it keeps us buoyed in reality as is.


DesertBrandon

Most people won’t be learned Marxist even post revolution. Most people will just agree with the programs and results over any ideological backing. Of course the dominant ideology of the ruling class is what most people adhere to which is why we have an uphill battle against bourgeoise pessimism. Within socialism then communism the dominant ideology would be one of the ruling class which will be the workers(until communism) so the material improvements would lead to passive marxists.


CompleteTruth2040

Yeah lol atleast in the US the working class is majority female, gay, or some kind of racial minority

it’s so weird. they come to his support everytime he receives criticism. he doesn’t need any support. he doesnt care about anyone.

Would it genuinely be unethical to assassinate this man? Asking for a friend


NoItsBosnian

If it's unethical, then I don't wanna be ethical


DesertBrandon

Idk if more posts like this were always here or if I’m just noticing them because someone warned about this sub being next man up for ban hammer when the admins need to both sides the issue when they delete r/nonewnormal or something. No many places to dunk on libs. I def agree with you tho.


[deleted]

Yeah it’s really not tactically useful to think about assassinations nor is it useful for the subreddit’s life


Ju99er118

Nonewnormal is already gone, but your point stands without that. I feel like there's some folks being radicalized that really want the violence part of things. I try to view it as an unfortunate and likely inevitable portion of progress, but that doesn't mean it should be joked about or particularly desired.


steve_tom

\*Sigh.\* ok, here's *both sides of the issue*, then: \*No one assassinate Elon Musk\*!!!!!!!111111\* Just take all his money and have him work on one of ~~his~~ *our* factories

Musky wouldn't know how to use a toilet plunger let alone run factory machinery.


puglightning10

I don't think this sub will be next. It's a political sub, whereas no new normal was an anti vax sub.


sockhuman

Not unethical per se, but a tactical blunder nonetheless. This will achieve no structural change, as he will just be replaced by someone else, but will be used as a justification by the ruling class to clamp down on leftist movements, put more cops on the streets, etc... If you are doing this knowing all that, you could argue it's unethical to because you are knowingly setting the stage for an attack on the left, although that would depend on your exact concept of "morality"

It is truly my hearts wish that the US experience a communist revolution and all the billionaires find themselves completely caught off guard, surprised, and unable to escape the country and are then forced to deal with the consequences of their actions.


MarsLowell

Sadly, we may have to come to grips that most of the current capitalists contributing to our world’s many issues will likely never face justice. At the very least, their legacy isn’t as safe.

This tweet is in no way related to Grimes's photo with a copy of the communist manifesto, and their prior divorce. Not at all.

Tokio_hop99

I mean if we're talking about a lot of "communists" in the west then... kinda?


8Bitsblu

Why is the person on the right not a worker?


Tokio_hop99

A lot of Communist understanding in western society subserved to liberalism (ofc not everyone but).


8Bitsblu

There's absolutely a bunch of revisionism and liberalism amongst settler communists in the US, but again, what makes the person on the right a liberal or revisionist?


TackleOk3608

White men are liberals.


TackleOk3608

Is communism only supposed to be for white men? Because that’s what this meme is saying. In reality the working class has far more women and POC than white men.


Tokio_hop99

What how do you derive that conclusion from the picture? Isn’t it implying that “communists” are filed with radlibs instead of actual working class people? She’s literally a white woman caricature of a radlib (not that we know if she actually is but).

True in America, but to generalize like that is a little misleading.

Some of the most ardent organizers/collectivists I know are blue collar farm laborers though


[deleted]

Do you really think that most communists are working class?


thesongofstorms

In my experience most of the anti-capitalists I know are working class yes. None of them are independently wealthy/living on passive income


[deleted]

Are they professionals or part of the labor aristocracy? Do they identify with the broad masses or do they hate them?


thesongofstorms

Ag workers and labor organizers and urban gardeners. Avg hard working people.


[deleted]

So you actually think that is the majority of self-identified communists in this country?


TackleOk3608

Are only white men working class?


[deleted]

No.


8Bitsblu

It's not true anywhere. The person on the right is just as much a worker as the person on the left.


[deleted]

Maybe. But they don't represent the masses of workers.


8Bitsblu

Neither does the worker on the left. Workers are those who subsist by selling their labor. Class is defined by how someone relates to production, it's not an appearance package.


DirtyHomelessWizard

…. Why?


[deleted]

Because most of the American working class is just regular people, not freaks like that.


DirtyHomelessWizard

This is super fucking weird. What defines a "regular" person and why would the person in the picture be a "freak"? There is no stereotype of a typical worker... that is literally the opposite of class consciousness.


[deleted]

A regular person is a regular person. Go to any American workplace and that's what I'm talking about.


DirtyHomelessWizard

sounding a bit fashy here, guy


[deleted]

I guess if appealing to the broad masses is inherently fash, then I'm a fash.


DirtyHomelessWizard

ok, try - right now, without avoiding the question - to describe a "regular person" to me. What sorts of traits do (not don't) they have?


TackleOk3608

There are plenty of women in American workplaces. There are plenty of workers that look like the girl in the meme.


[deleted]

A negligible percentage.


DirtyHomelessWizard

source?


xxxbingxxx

All I will say is that the person has brightly dyed hair and drawn-on eyebrows, which aren't too unusual out in the post-industrial world; a lot of retail and service workers look like that. There is a stereotype, no doubt derived from class-divisive propaganda, saying that working class people never look like that. That look is stereotypically associated with cancel culture crazed twitterati wokester radlibs who can't understand things like nuance or context and aspire to the professional managerial class in the form of high-ranking non-profit or corporate HR positions instead of actual working people. That being said, I really wish that all stereotypes would die already and that people would stop enabling them so we can build class solidarity. It is annoying when talking to people outside left spaces and they think "the left" means liberals.

HappyMilkXD

No, that isn't his point. Grimes divorced from him, so he's mocking them. What you mean with "Western Radicals" are **also** a part of the proletariat.


serr7

Wtf lmao. Almost every person is a worker, talk to someone on the street or the internet about communism and they’re probably a worker. Just because someone isn’t engaged in manual labor doesn’t mean they’re not a part of the working class, hell if my current job didn’t have at least some hope for earning me more money id rather be making coffee in a shop with AC or some shit.

This is a bad take. Mobilizing/educating the lumpenprole is important and necessary.


SkulGurl

I agree, but we also have to be very careful to avoid any kind of tailism. It’s a tricky balance to strike.


kiddo51

Tailism? Is it a typo perhaps or would you mind educating me on the meaning of that word?


feel_the_darkness

The term "tailism" refers to an approach where we drop down to the level of reactionaries and try to nudge them forward from behind on their own terms


kiddo51

Thanks


feel_the_darkness

They weren't making a normative claim, but a descriptive conditional claim: if/then


DontTrotskyOnMe

Doesn't really address what the root comment is saying, regardless.


feel_the_darkness

I agree with your fundamental point 100%; however, are you going to dispute the claim that an uncooperative white working class will be crushed by the majority?


DontTrotskyOnMe

Not disputing that at all lmao. I feel like making an effort to educated said white working class first would be more effective, which is what the root comment is ultimately saying (my interpretation). DarthTater skipped the whole "potential ally" piece.
