What's funny about that is capitalists willingly moved Western industry to China in the pursuit of profit, else the country would have never developed its economy so rapidly. Like Marx and Engels write in the Communist Manifesto, "what the bourgeoisie therefore produces, above all, are its own grave diggers."

    The "bourgeoisie" are still doing just fine of course; it's ordinary people who are getting hit by the decline of the Western world. And it's hard to say if China will in fact ever move away from the mixed economy their state has set up to develop socialism as outlined by Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Xi Jinping "Thought". What is certain though is that both US presidential candidates are ratcheting up a new cold war with China because they know what's coming.

    No, corporations and the media only pander to SJW beliefs for commercial reasons, they don't really believe in "social justice" as evident in their actual business practices: cutting labor costs, shipping jobs overseas, running sweatshops with child labor, war-profiteering, etc.

    Both the progressive and conservative camps are libs and "SJW types", by the way. Let's not act like conservatives don't have social ideas that media companies and politicians actively pander to, like Trump claiming nobody reads the bible more than him lmao. And in terms of liberalism both parties simply prioritize different aspects of it, while agreeing at the core. They're like two sports teams who wear different colors but play the same sport.

    I agree with that last part. I was actually talking to someone and I think there's actuslly a very legit arguement that there's essentially 3 parties in the US. Obviously there's 2 and I'm not suggesting there's some deep state controlling the 3rd party, but for all intents and purposes, I truly do beleive were closer to 3 parties than 2. One party is basically the trump block. I'd sya its ultra conservative. But I'm not sure that's entirely true. It's more that they basically vote on 2 primary issues, 2nd ammendment and religion/abortion rights. Those people have been talked into believing trickle down over the years, but generally speaking, those 2 things rule. And recently, white supremacism has been a priority too. Another party is basically the ultra liberal Bernie sanders type of wing. Very socialist at their core. And the 3rd party is in the middle.

    But essentially, 1 party always voted Dem and the other always voted GOP. Neither was big enough on their own to truly take control, so they've always had to court the centrists. So the best way to do that is to nominate tla centrist candidate. So prior to 2016, both sides basically nominated an "extremist" from the middle party. If you really look at them, guys like the Bushes, Clinton and Obama really weren't that different. They more seemed to represent opposite ends of the middle party. We focused on their differences, but none of them were really making fundamental changes to the core. Sure, they may have started wars and launched a wide variety of programs, but it was more window dressing on somewhat similar ideologies. Even the opposition candidates in many of those electections were generally fairly central.

    Then 2016 came along. Trump won his party's nomination from closer to the extreme right platform than the center. Bernie almost won his from the extreme left. And there's a real argument Trump won the general at least partially due to the lack of interest in Hillary from the extreme left community of Bernie Bros.

    While the center party is still needed to win elections, both the far right and far left have become empowered to realize that the Dems and the GOP can't win without them. So instead of just blindly turning out and voting based upon the letter behind the candidates name, the more extreme wings can actually throw their weight around.

    Biden is very much a centrist at his core. But if he wins, he's absolutely going to be pulled more left than he personal principles are due to pressure from his party. And if Biden wins and doesn't run again in 2024, it's somewhat likely we'll see a Trump-esque Republican and a more Bernie-esque Democrat win their nominations. The center dwellers will no longer be picking between what amounted to almost window dressing difference as compared to truly opposite idealogies.

    It is a sad world we live in today. If you don't get your way, or like something, or agree with something then make it a race issue.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Yep. Pretty much. But don't stop at race, it's morphed into every SJ issue you can think of.

    well, some of it simply should get fixed and the way society in general is...strike while the iron is hot because there may never be another time we're primed to actually do something............not that I agree with every SJ issue out there
