That's why I mentioned the other traditional methods

The US has nukes, and much bigger traditional ballistics than what's currently being sent.

If Biden really really wanted to, Gaza wouldn't exist anymore

Totally agree, he's already damaging his own reputation, which is why the "do not vote for Biden" game can even be played.

I'm just far more terrified of what Trump will do to Gaza, and Biden is just the lesser of two evils

If the Dems keep winning the Republicans will have to slide left. It happened in the UK with Labour (unfortunately in the opposite direction).

When that happens, and Trump is not literally attempting to end democracy using project 2025, the plan of strong-arming the dem candidate into being more left is plenty feasible, and the risks are less dire.

The problem is that people are dumb, and plenty are legitimately not planning on voting for Biden now.

If and when Biden deals with Gaza, everyone with this mindset immediately needs to turn around and start sucking off Biden with previously unseen vigor and determination, otherwise this is only going to damage his chance of being elected. Hell, even then I still see some damage being done.

It just seems irresponsible to spread this message, especially when people like OP seem to genuinely believe it. Pick a less blatantly fascist opponent than Trump to do this with ffs

Being mega pedantic, pasta has ingredients.

But I understand your general point, you should be able to read the list of ingredients and understand what they all are right? Pasta being, flour, eggs, olive oil and salt is a much shorter list than whatever is in a microwave meal

Yeah fair enough. In layman's terms, I would say they were a leftist. Maybe not as educated as they should be, but the heart seems to be in the right place.

I totally get why they don't fit a more strict definition than mine though.

Thank you for the more in-depth research and information too

They don't even seem to be liberal, they've made posts criticising the dems for exactly the same reasons other leftists are.

It just seems like a leftist arguing with leftier leftists because the right wing doesn't appear to have any major presence on lemmy

I would happily pay a 40% tax rate for good public services including healthcare.

They have the 2nd highest quality of life index of all countries, with 1st being Luxembourg which is right next to them

I think the point is that these people are also committing war crimes, and the "they" are non-western countries like Russia and China, and the "we" is the western countries

"Anti-Work" does this better how? I'm genuinely confused

[-] HauntedCupcake 1 points 2 days ago

FALGSC isn't going to happen overnight, and work reform is a realistic interim solution.

Arguing for lower hours and more pay to match the massive increases in productivity we've seen over the last 100 years is totally feasible. And a step in the right direction long term.

FALGSC is currently not feasible, and at this rate automation is only making the rich richer
