A heartwarming story about how slaves are growing food for private charities to give to the poor.
  • Okay, so this is actually really interesting. It gets into how in the US, when we talk about slavery, we are specifically talking about chattel slavery as it was practiced in the Americas. And there’s actually a pretty strong argument that American chattel slavery is, if not unique in world history, it is more aberrant than other force labor systems throughout world history.

    Absolutely mass incarceration, and the force labor system that goes along with it are incredibly distinct from American style chattel slavery, but this is because they’re arguably more in line with what slavery, distinct from chattel slavery, ‘usually’ meant. Basing a forced labor system off of race is more or less a modern phenomenon . There’s some nuance, but slave codes basically make up the core of available written records on the development of race as a cultural concept. [big ol’ FOR THE WEST label here]

    American Chattel Slavery Might Be Uniquely Cruel in World History
  • Brazil is Americas??

    Edit: But, yes, same deal. The racialized element of the forced labor system is what I’m referring to. The social concept of race is modern. sustained, large scale, intercontinental?migrations are required. And it was this forced labor system, mostly in the tropics.. depending how you measure…

    The uniquely cruel aspect to chattel slavery in the continental US was the breeding programs.

  • Did You Know? The DNC is the Main Funder of American Fascism
  • Look, I’m not contesting the viability of the strategy. I am reframing the available evidence to you know explain why things are getting worse and it’s the Democrats fault. All right funding. The American fascist movement is not a viable long-term strategy. And it is why the Democrats are as an institution, cable, and in the broader terms completely ready and willing to tuck and roll through the transition from the current authoritarian governance that they make up and the fascist one that they expect under the Republicans

  • What are our freedoms doing in Kuwait?
  • IDK man it kind of feels like you’re the one being obtuse, not engaging with the critique of imperialism.

    to respond,: Afghanistan. Taliban. Did 911. US invaded over it. …Okay. And then…And uh.then., Lost. Lost, rather badly, as I heard it. Oh and they gave Lockheed Martin and Raytheon 50 trillion dollars.

    My issue with Kuwait is like, the US is still there. And it has been the entire time.

  • Did You Know? The DNC is the Main Funder of American Fascism
  • I mean,. I didn’t put a lot into communicating the actual point because I anticipated the reception. It’s a bit self-fulfilling, but here we are. It’s a very specific accusation. The main financial driver. Like the main millions of dollars contributing to the absolute worst of the worst the most far right of the far right in American politics,. The American fascists. is the Democratic Party. Because,. So far as I can tell, they genuinely believe their own bullshit about electability.
