Still can't believe that Woodhouse fooled everyone into thinking he was a fascist for years.

Ten Reasons Why the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) Won the Election: The real question, which is being ignored, is how the PSUV won and the Opposition lost, given the enormous outside support for MUD and the economic crisis in Venezuela? Why did the opposition lose 2.7 million votes in two years following their much-ballyhooed parliamentary victory? How could the US, the OAS and the EU miss this trend and waste their money and credibility?
Whether it’s the Fourth of July, New Year’s Eve, or any other raucous celebration, for animals, fireworks are terrifying—and could be fatal. Many dogs and cats flee in fear from their deafening blasts. Animals become confused and panicked, and shelters see a spike in the number of admissions after fireworks displays.
Simply keeping animals indoors may not be enough.
Frightened animals may flee their homes trying to escape the startling and confusing blasts. It’s not uncommon for dogs to break through windows and screen doors or dig under fences in a panic. Prepare your home and animal companions before the event:
• Distract your cats and dogs by giving them lots of love and attention.
• Play some soothing background music or turn on the TV.
• Close the curtains or blinds.
• Make sure that all your animals are wearing collars with current identification tags and that they’re microchipped.
The most important thing for scared animals is to have their guardians close by.
As Climate Change Creates Fascist Violence, The Global Left Needs To Become Armed: All of this shows that the global left must become armed and militant in the same fashion of history’s communist revolutionaries. To keep our communities safe, and to defend our revolutionary gains from capitalist aggression, we’ll need to learn from the armed resistance struggles of the Bolsheviks, the Maoists, Ho Chi Minh’s fighters, and others who’ve successfully defended themselves from capitalist violence.

Breaking down the BBC’s visit to Hotan, Xinjiang: This segment is spun as China doing a Minority Report-esque PRE-CRIME program — and the model here is certainly open to discussion and criticism, but on the face it seems far more reasonable than something like California’s Three Strikes law. Instead of punishment or prison, minor offenders are offered training, making reintegration easier. It’s unclear what proportion of people there as an alternative to prison or simply there just to capitalize on vocational training. This is information that I’d be very interested in, but the BBC didn’t think to ask. All in all, if this model of rehabilitation through vocational training centers was applied in the US, it’d be called left-wing extremism and being “soft” on crime. Where I live, a man was given a 10 year prison sentence for stealing $33 worth of underwear. Imagine if instead of prison, he was given training for a few months and then reintegrated into society, instead of locked away for an entire decade.
Welcome to all people joining us, late arrivals from Grenada as well as newcomers: Attempted socialism Manawatu (if you have the will for it, there is a RP section on TI's Discord) The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (another of our many Vietnam themed nations) Coddrow Osmani Revolutionary Catalonia, uh, I beg your pardon, Revolutionary silverstone Perpetuaris Progressive Vietnam (yeah, now I'm making a welcoming post - let's be revolutionary with risky politeness)
I created them with many purposes in mind, partly because the nations supporting/having the theme, flag and motto of South Vietnam (America's puppet state in Vietnam war) were created and I saw some of them when searching for nations with "Vietnam" in name. So I created many Vietnam clone nation as socialist nations with Vietnam flag to overwhelm those "South Vietnam nations" with sheer number of socialist/communist Vietnam.
Moreover I got all of those names as reserve to leave as little choice for people who intend to create South Vietnam nations with those names as possible, serving the purpose of keeping Vietnam being known as supporting socialism in Nationstates. The nation with "Country of Vietnam" name for example, it was originally a nation which ceased to exist a long time ago, I added it to dossier until I could reuse the name to found a new nation with that name, lest some South Vietnam supporters may use that name to create a nation with South Vietnam theme instead.
The third purpose of it is that I may need them for yearly N-Day event and Zombie event.
The Importance of Defending Venezuela: Most governments in the world enjoy precious little popular support. For example, when British prime minister Theresa May was forced to announce her resignation in May 2019, the masses didn’t rush out to the streets to declare their undying fealty; more like, the ground shook with the simultaneous muttering of the words “good riddance” from millions of homes and workplaces throughout the country.1 It may then have come as a surprise to some when, in early 2019, millions of ordinary Venezuelans – working people, peasants, students, barrio-dwellers – flocked to the streets to defend their elected government from an attempted coup.
I would go as far as to say that any "leftist" (Think Thirdwayite sellouts and ENLIGHTENED CENTRISTS) who seriously supports a putsch or a military invasion in Venezuela is nothing more than a Scoop Jackson in the making. And neocons such as Scoop are nothing more than the bloodthirsty embodiment of imperialist wingnuttery.
Indeed. While certainly the Maduro government has done some things worthy of criticism, at the moment, I think solidarity with the people of Venezuela, who evidently prefer Maduro in power, is extremely important.
