legality is not morality, and morality is not legality.

“At first glance it seems strange that the attitude of the anti-Semite can be equated with that of the negrophobe. It was my philosophy teacher from the Antilles who reminded me one day: “When you hear someone insulting the Jews pay attention; he is talking about you.” And I believed at the time he was universally right, meaning that I was responsible in my body and my soul for the fate reserved for my brother. Since then, I have understood that what he meant quite simply was the anti-Semite is inevitably a negrophobe.”
- Frantz Fanon, Black Skin White Masks

I think my favorite thing when people argue that I'm not a Liberal, is that they have no idea what Liberalism is, they just argue that I can't be one because I don't agree with them and they've been told by the American mainstream that they're Liberals when their politics, beliefs, principles and ideals don't align with Liberalism.
Liberalism isn't what the American Right and Left think it is, it isn't what Rush Limbaugh claimed it to be, that man was using the term Liberal as a pejorative because the Far Left hated Liberalism and to be called one was the same as calling a Conservative a fascist back in the day, now all it does is convince morons that the Far Left are actually Liberals and provide the Far Left with an ideological smokescreen.
Liberalism is a very basic political and moral philosophy, now you might be asking, what is Liberalism? Liberalism is based on four foundational rights, that of the individual, liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law.
Then there are secondary rights which are derived from the foundational rights, such as individual rights, including civil rights and human rights, liberal democracy, secularism, rule of law, economic and political freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, defense of self and property, private property and a market economy.
That's it, that's Liberalism, however Liberalism has spawned many other political and moral philosophies from its foundation, Conservatism and Libertarianism are two such examples, then there are others in which foreign enlightenment ideological frameworks were shoehorned into Liberalism, using it like a skinsuit, such as NeoLiberalism, Social Liberalism and so on.
The whole reason the Far Left on this platform have been shitting themselves over my use of the term Liberal is because they want to assert that Neo and Social Liberalism are the true forms of Liberalism when Conservatism and Libertarianism are closer to true Liberalism than those other two.
So yes, I am a Liberal, not a Conservative, not a Libertarian, or any other derivative of Liberalism, that's it, and if you take issue with this, you can just die mad about it, now can't you?

These announcements in no way modify the blockade or the main measures of economic siege adopted by Trump, such as the lists of Cuban entities subject to additional coercive measures; nor do they eliminate travelling restrictions for US citizens. They do not reverse either the arbitrary and fraudulent inclusion of Cuba in the State Department list of countries that allegedly sponsor terrorism, one of the main causes for the difficulties Cuba comes up against in its commercial and financial transactions in many parts of the world.
However, this is a limited step in the right direction, a response to the denunciations made by the Cuban people and government. It is also a response to the claims made by U.S. society and the Cubans residing in that country. This has been a demand by the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States and virtually all members of the United Nations, expressed in the overwhelming vote against the blockade. These are just demands which have been ignored by the government of the United States at a very high cost for our people.

“Reformism, in general, means that people confine them selves to agitating for changes which do not require the removal of the main foundations of the old ruling class, changes that are compatible with the preservation of these foundations.”
— V.I. Lenin (1913)

margaret thatcher was one of, if not the single worst prime minister in the history of britain, so here's a short list of the evil shit she did:
-passed section 28, which outlawed teaching about lgbtqia+ topics in schools
-introduced the poll tax, which was a flat tax rate levied on every eligible adult with no regards to income
-abolished free milk for school children
-authorised the use of violence against striking miners across the country, who were protesting to attempt to prevent pit closures and job losses
-introduced right to buy council housing, which after a few years only led to landlords owning masses of accommodation that had previously been owned by local councils
-decimated the power of unions with the trade union act of 1984, which required a secret ballot before strikes could be held as a way to declare many strikes unlawful and therefore liable for police violence
-openly backed the right wing dictator of chile, augusto pinochet, based solely on the grounds that he was anti communist
-defended apartheid in south africa
and a lot of other fucked up shit i can't be bothered to mention because i'm tired.
basically, margaret thatcher was an awful human being.

I fully believe the queen is dead and they just don’t wanna deal with a funeral before Christmas so they’re keeping her on ice (aka life support) till spring.
apparently the entire country has to do a 12 day long mourning and the BBC is legally banned from putting on any comedy show during that week AND they have to shut down the London stock exchange for one whole day... now I'm not saying they're weekends at Bernie's-ing that colonizer to keep the stock exchange open, but....

By Cheryl LaBash
When you have touched a woman you have struck a rock, says a South African proverb. It continues, you have dislodged a boulder, you will be crushed. The U.S. Supreme Court justices who penned the recently leaked draft majority opinion abolishing voluntary legal pregnancy termination should take heed.
The combat between the past and the future can be seen in real time when Cuba’s proposed Families Code and 2022 National Program for the Advancement of Women is compared with the hateful onslaught faced by women in the United States, where the Equal Rights Amendment is still blocked.
