No I’m not catastrophising.

The world is slowly lurching towards a fully fascist led America, India, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Argentina.

Instead people are either ignorant or blaming “wokeism”* for their problems.

I have no clue what to do and this is literally a car crash in slow motion.

I’m despondent because I’m going to be crushed under the boot when the time comes and my morals get in the way of my survival instinct.

Humans are repeating the mistakes of the past. It’s just so anxiety inducing.

*Woke is a useless term promulgated by fascists to dog whistle the things they really want to hate - feminism, socialism, LGBTQIA+, immigration, brown/black people, equality and diversity.

    Not just late stage capitalism(which is really just a return to oligarchies)

    You want to know how this is all being pushed: look into the “International Democrat Union”

    It’s led by the christian-fascist and former Canadian prime Minister Stephen Harper. He’s giving them the aid and policy directives they’re using to trick people into voting for them.

    It’s why Pierre Polievre, current leader of the federal opposition in Canada, wants to talk about anything other than India’s assault on Canadian sovereignty. Because Modi, him and Harper are really tightly knit.

      Thanks! I’m more concerned about the social democratic “leftists” though, ever since the “third way” it seems they have been completely captured all around the globe. Functionally this created the fertile ground for the fascism we see today. I’m not well educated how this ideological change is distributed, I can only infer it / speculate from the effects.

        Nah, Harper and his Reform party spend two decades worming their way into Canadian politics by at first showing their hand in the late 1980s and early 1990s, then learning to hide it and play it slowly. Any time any of their cult played their hand in the 2000s it was always an “outburst” or “temporary error in judgement”.

        They then conned the existing sane conservative party into “merging” with their their smaller party, and through cheating the internal politics of the combined party and pandering to the GOP, got the funds to crush the sane conservatives at the federal level.

        It has nothing to do with social programs. Has everything to do with a decades long plan to push politics rightward into accepting extremism.

      Indian here. You are incorrect.

      The only reason why Trudeau avoids talking about the whole BJP stint is because Khalistanis (domestic terrorists for India) are a vote bank for him and liberals. NRIs are fucking slimy people that love to shit on India on the internet as it suits them. It is not always about rooting for India pessimistically when shitting on BJP government, sometimes it is also a self-hate for nationality, and a way to “purify” or “baptise” oneself for the white capitalist countries.

        Not Trudeau, hes rightly bringing up India attacking Canada. Poilievre, the leader of the official opposition, is the one trying to bury it.

        Also its very well documented that Modi takes advice from Harper, and Poilievre being a former member of Harper’s cabinet, absolutely worships the ground the robot-man walks on.

          I did not see Trudeau hyping it up much either. He spoke, then the whole thing went under the rug. Trudeau gets plenty votes from Khalistanis.

          And let’s not act like Canada would be very happy if India started “freely” sheltering Canada’s domestic terrorists.

            Modi proved that HE is a terrorist by contracting a murder of a Canadian on Canadian soil.

              Canada also likewise proved it is a terrorist nation by providing refuge to India’s domestic terrorists. Modi orchestrated a genocide of Muslims in 2002, so we know what these religious terrorists are, but Canada did something entirely different. We know USA, UK and Canada provide refuge to Khalistanis. India should also start providing refuge to some indigenous people of Canada and help them fight against terrorist Canadian establishment to get back their native land.
