They are two sides of the same social formation, however, if there was a fascist coup in Australia tomorrow, I would fight for the restoration of a bourgeois-democracy (if the forces weren’t in place to win socialism).
I say that because while bourgeois democracy sucks, it is better than fascism for the self-organisation of the oppressed. I know that because while activists in bourgeois-liberal Australia are harassed by the cops, demonised and sometimes attacked, we are alive and not having to go underground.
That is better than the abject fascism of the ultra-right.
However, this shouldn’t be taken to mean that in the case of an attempted fascist-coup, we must defend bourgeois democracy if it is possible to make socialist revolution. Indeed, in the case of civil war, turning the struggle into a mass class struggle based in the working class and oppressed rather than the liberal bourgeoisie is probably the best way of winning.

Apparently if you’re a cisgender, straight, white man you have every privilege known to man and have no right to be upset about anything, ever.
How much sense does that make?
do you actually know what privilege theory is or are you just talking out of your arse as usual

If you think you can do away with oppressive social systems without doing away with capitalism…
you are going to have a bad time.
Hundreds of unsolved killings and attempted killings in Germany over the past two decades may have been committed by far-right extremists, officials said Wednesday.
The stark admission comes two years after police acknowledged that a series of murders they had initially linked to immigrant criminal groups was likely the work of a secretive neo-Nazi group.
The case prompted a fundamental review of Germany’s security services, including the way they classify crimes.
An Interior Ministry spokesman said authorities have completed an initial review of more than 3,300 unsolved cases between 1990 and 2011, looking for signs of a possible far-right motive.

People starving when tons of unsold food is thrown away globally because people couldn’t afford to purchase the food, that’s violence.
People dying and going bankrupt to pay for their healthcare, that’s violence.
People being evicted from their homes when there are more houses than there are houseless people, that’s violence.Capitalism is violence.
And before anyone says it, no the system isn’t broken, it was built this way.
so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
Each week, TIME Magazine designs covers for four world markets: the U.S., Europe, Asia and the South Pacific. While the content in these magazines are nearly identical, the covers are not, with those intended for American audiences often being quite … different.
so yeah, its the holiday season let me to be the first person to say this to you! #ihopethisshithappens
Cisgender is just a word used to shame people for being normal.
Gently insert your thumb into your anus. Then carefully and slowly add in the entire hand. Next goes the forearm, and then the rest of the arm. Continue in this manner until you shove your entire body up your ass. Shove your entire body up your ass and dissapear
CORPORATE AMERICA is giving workers a cruel choice: your job or your health.
Currently, four out of 10 private-sector workers don’t have a singe day of paid sick leave on the job. And if Corporate America gets its way, that number will only increase, according to a recent report by the Economic Policy Institute(EPI)
In 10 states so far, legislators are pushing through bans on city or county governments providing paid sick leave for workers. The bans, passed in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin, are designed to act preemptively, blocking sick leave legislation from even coming to a vote.
There are 40 million private-sector workers without paid sick days. The consequence, of course, is that many have to go to work sick rather than lose a day’s pay. According to the EPI, “A two-child family with two workers earning the average wage for workers without paid sick time would lose the family’s entire health care budget after just three days of missed work.”
Many workers can’t afford to take off even one day of work—not only because they need the day’s pay, but because taking just one day off could cost them their job.
A majority of workers who don’t have sick days are employed in low-wage jobs, and are typically more vulnerable to layoffs. And the lack of laws guaranteeing workers paid sick days further feeds employer’s confidence to threaten workers with job loss.
"Because of the limited extent of paid-sick-days coverage and the limited number of paid sick days available even when some coverage exists, workers are often penalized by employers when time off is needed to deal with personal or family illnesses," a 2010 Public Welfare Foundation study, Paid Sick Days: Attitudes and Experiences, points out.
Some 12 percent of workers surveyed said that they or a family member have been fired, suspended or otherwise punished for taking time off for an illness, 16 percent said they’d lost a job, and 14 percent indicated that they were told that they would lose their job if they took time off for a personal or family illness.
