France is facing massive droughts, but golf greens have been exempted from water restrictions; so climate activists went to golf courses and filled the holes with concrete! #StopGolf

pandemics won't be solved by relying on personal responsibility any more than climate change will. boycotting plastic straws and individually wearing a face covering isn't a replacement for systemic change. don't let those with power shift your anger away from them

communism is just too boring imo. nobody wants to read a bunch if dusty old tomes about political economy and some pamphlets anymore. we need to make communism SEXY. and modern! big tits in hammer and sickle bikinis! muscly dudes having gay sex at the union meetings! no more of this stuffy academia or "dialectical materialism". we gotta talk to people in the language they understand: pure horn doggery. its simple
