    Capitalism does not self regulate, it consolidates. You should try reading Marx and Lenin’s actual writings, you seem very earnest and dont come off as a troll. There are multiple free audio recordings on YouTube of their works. Humanity must escape the all powerful driving forces of the profit motives Capitalism enforces or perish off the face of this earth. That process if it is to take place will appear extremely authoritarian to those who value profit above all else.

    Yes it is, because authoritarianism isn’t the end goal of ML. You readily acknowledge that we currently live under an authoritarian Capitalist system, can you tell me what the end goal of this system even is? I mean most workers are one missed paycheck away from homelessness. While vast sums of wealth are horded by the top 1% of society with the only end goal being more wealth being extracted from the working class, with no actual goal besides more profit and greater wealth. The end goal of Marxist-Leninism is a classes society where each person contributes what they can to society and receives back what they need to live a fulfilling life. They are extremely different.








  • So blessed to finally be sober after struggling with alcoholism for a decade. Coming up on a year and a half sober. I literally cant describe how much my physical existence had improved, sobriety is worth the struggle, and it is a struggle to break free from the addiction. I literally drank at minimum a 6 pack every night. Was always able to justify it because i was surrounded by folks who were much more alcoholic than me. My father would literally hide handles of cheap vodka under the sink in his bathtoom and in the back seat of his car while, him and my mothet already had an extensive liquor cabinet. Alcoholism is a disease, and i hope if yoy are struggling with it, you can find relief somewhere other than at the bottom of a bottle.

    Yes. I get called one everytime i defend or advocate for anything left of Bernie Sanders. "

    “Communism is the riddle of history solved, and knows itself to be the solution.”

    Is as true today as it was when Marx wrote it almost 200 years ago.

    Stopping smoking is easy, i used to do it every time my cigarette went out, quitting on the other hand is a lifelong task, but it is worth the struggle. I still crave cigarettes to this day, but dont miss being a slave to that addiction. I would literally collect cigarette butts off the ground and reroll them. If i can quit so can you.
