Is decriminilization of gay sex not a good thing regardless of your views of idpol?
Surely its a good thing that India, a deeply reactionary nation, is progressing socially at least a bit.

gay sex is bourgeois

Go be a liberal somewhere else.

Vast majority of gays are working class, brainlet


as long as nobody claims that it's revolutionary potential or essence of leftist politics there's nothing wrong with social progress
homosexuality not being a scapegoat to redirect societies attention and anger away from class is a good thing as long as you also make a distinction between rich faggots and homosexual workers

My suspicion with the various naval accidents that have been occurring around Japan, is that they may be engineered to encourage Japan to develop its own invading force (IE scrap the self-defense military rule which makes sense for Japan but not American imperialism against the Chinese).


You're totally right we should havr never had global capitalist revolutions becaise it didnt immediately result in FALC, should have just stayed in feudalism.


No ones claiming decriminilization of samesex relations is some sort of grand revolutionary act, its just nice for Indian working class gays to not be thrown in prison.

German workers strike for right to two-year, 28-hour working week

thanks for sharing



If only. The rate of profit is too low as it is. We'll have FALC before we get a 28h workweek under capital.

Must be nice to live in the core of an empire during its early years.

Less working hours should be a staple of leftist policy.

Honestly, great timing on this: the government can't do shit so they will likely get what they want. Good plan lads.

Vtech covered up a leak of data on 6.3m children and their families, then tried to force us not to sue - the FTC just fined them $0.09/kid

Vtech is the Taiwanese kids' crapgadget vendor that breached sensitive data on 6.3 million children and their families, lied about it and covered it up, then added a dirty EULA to its products that made us promise not to sue them if they did it again.

The FTC has just fined the company $650,000 over the 2015 breach: a little more than 9 cents per kid.

The breach included recordings and transcripts of conversations between children and their parents, as well as pictures the kids took of themselves and their families. The company didn't even know this data was floating around online until a journalist asked them about it.

Does this dumbass know that Trump worked with the mob or does he just not care?

Trump supporters don't like facts user. You should know that by now.

I love how Americans say Communist countries are backwards yet they're also portrayed as having all this weird tech or elite spec ops.

Better version.

The Cubyan Crisis except it's the Cuban Crysis

The basic idea is that communist countries aren't good at anything besides military science because communism is inherently aggressive. Also if you think there's a vast communist conspiracy then you would naturally wonder what other secrets the socialist states are hiding.

Kojima plays with this Cold War paranoia and conspiracism in MGS. After all, Metal Gear itself was designed by the Soviets…

Trump supporters only care about facts that make daddy look good.

During the 2016 campaign his supporters rationalized the mafia connections by saying that it's basically impossible to work in NYC real estate without paying off the mob
I honestly don't really doubt that, but they're trying to cover for him when, as you said, trump probably didn't exactly need to be coerced into working with the mob

The article is ok, I do disagree with the part that says genes don’t matter, because evolutionary they do. It’s how natural selection works. However the best way to preserve your genes is to bread with others different from you.

U.S. spy satellite believed destroyed after failing to reach orbit: officials

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. spy satellite that was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard a SpaceX rocket on Sunday failed to reach orbit and is assumed to be a total loss, two U.S. officials briefed on the mission said on Monday.

The classified intelligence satellite, built by Northrop Grumman Corp, failed to separate from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket and is assumed to have broken up or plunged into the sea, said the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The satellite is assumed to be “a write-off,” one of the officials said.

The presumed loss of the satellite was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Northrop Grumman built the multibillion-dollar satellite, code-named Zuma, and was responsible for choosing the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle, both officials said.


so what is the relationship between SpaceX and NASA?
