To get back that cocaine with swastikas posted here yesterday?

Prigozhin invoking Stalin and threatening Putin with revolution is somehow both more and less amusing i thought. More because it’s a time somebody should talk about it and less because he don’t really mean it.

I’m not passive agressive, i’m just agressive at you duplicious bootlickers.

I explained that in the other posts so don’t play idiot. Especially read the Parenti quote, it’s crusty old Cold War method.

No, we don’t seem to agree on this, you constantly push propaganda of the imperialist core, you are very much pro capitalism in its highest stage.

OP entire post history is just attacking the opponents of US, idk how you can even interpret the post title otherwise, since it’s not even the title of linked article, but the one made precisely with certain agenda in mind.

But of course this detail will be omitted in loaded posts like OP. Consider the still active modus operandi of western shills:

“During the cold war, the anticommunist ideological framework could transform any data about existing communist societies into hostile evidence. If the Soviets refused to negotiate a point, they were intransigent and belligerent; if they appeared willing to make concessions, this was but a skillful ploy to put us off our guard. By opposing arms limitations, they would have demonstrated their aggressive intent; but when in fact they supported most armament treaties, it was because they were mendacious and manipulative. If the churches in the USSR were empty, this demonstrated that religion was suppressed; but if the churches were full, this meant the people were rejecting the regime’s atheistic ideology. If the workers went on strike (as happened on infrequent occasions), this was evidence of their alienation from the collectivist system; if they didn’t go on strike, this was because they were intimidated and lacked freedom. A scarcity of consumer goods demonstrated the failure of the economic system; an improvement in consumer supplies meant only that the leaders were attempting to placate a restive population and so maintain a firmer hold over them. If communists in the United States played an important role struggling for the rights of workers, the poor, African-Americans, women, and others, this was only their guileful way of gathering support among disfranchised groups and gaining power for themselves. How one gained power by fighting for the rights of powerless groups was never explained. What we are dealing with is a nonfalsifiable orthodoxy, so assiduously marketed by the ruling interests that it affected people across the entire political spectrum.” ― Michael Parenti, Blackshirts and Reds: Rational Fascism and the Overthrow of Communism

…judicial and legislative constraints on the executive along with the protection of civil liberties and equality before the law.

Pressing X really hard for some of them

No multiparty elections for the executive

Called it

absence of fundamental democratic components such as freedom of expression, freedom of association, and free and fair elections.

Obligatory question “for which class”, people acting for the working class power does not seem to have much of those freedoms in the many blue countries.

Also you lost me at Tiananmen square massacre, even your own western media debunked this one.

Pretty crazy that putting people in misery is many times more expensive than lifting them out of it.

Innacuracy is that even leaving the particular country classiffication aside, the entire definition is a complete nonsense. How does electoral democracy differ from liberal democracy? Liberal ones don’t have elections? Lmao looking at most of those countries it would actually be more or less true, since the elections don’t mean shit there. What even is the electoral autocracy? Sounds like total buzzword to somehow rationalize the most shallow and abjectly untrue definition of democracy which is followed by most western media “democracy is when you have elections” (also most of the red countries does have elections too). Maybe it is when you have elections but they don’t mean much or anything, like in majority of blue and dark blue countries where there is only few capitalist parties to choose and actually holding politicians responsible for their promises and actions is practically impossible? What is “closed autocracy”? What is even closed there, if you look at China or Cuba they have way more diverse and mobile politicians unlike west where we see basically political caste, hell even in fucking Poland one generation after coup we see shitton things becoming hereditary.

It’s just the same first world map as every fucking time just with new but still meaningless and identical as always metric added.

The percentage is btw more because the source for what exactly is an “autocracy” is the gool old same map:

Yeah that’s why in case he lose he will immediately claim russian interference (as if Erdogan needed any help with that) to butter up his NATO masters and manufacture some consent for possible coup in Turkey.

I also don’t believe he’s paid, which makes it even worse really.

Yeah, but US is of course aware of that, i read recently articles about Australia getting straight up threatened by USA to drop their own interests and serve as vanguard against China.
