Here I am thinking someone's an american until Tesco pops up.


D0NGMASTER2000

Good old tesco and their ability to... indicate whether one is from the US or the UK


bob_grumble

American here. I assume Tesco is a British equivalent of Walmart or Kroger/Fred Meyer.


CollieOxenfree

More or less, although Tesco also has lots of extra smaller corner shops as well, somewhere around the size of half of a Walgreens. So you can either walk over to the local smol Tesco and pick up the more common things, or drive out to a bigger one where you'll probably need a shopping cart/trolley.


ComradeClout

What’s tesco?


suspicious_polarbear

its a grocery store but not that good. tesco express is like a convenience store./


ComradeClout

Like 7/11?


suspicious_polarbear

tesco express is like 7/11 normal tesco is much bigger but still not as good as the nicer grocery chains


SuperEnthusiastic

British Walmart, basically They also have smaller 7/11 type shops as well


AnimusCorpus

Oh damn. I always thought Tesco was an American thing. I'm a New Zealander, so we don't really have stores known outside of Australasia, aside from KMart.

Does the government actually think that or is it that corporate funded media and politicians are trying to reinforce that idea into the minds of half the population inorder to allow them to hold control of the political, economic and social spheres of society.


chaseinger

"the government thinks" is shorthand for "the ruling class makes us."


aaaaaaaaaamber

No. It's the government banning any sources from anti-capitalists being used in the UK. https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/sep/27/uk-schools-told-not-to-use-anti-capitalist-material-in-teaching


Lard_of_Dorkness

But the liberal indoctrination!


gregghughes123

But perhaps if you're going to post a comment like this on a public forum where it will be seen by people who aren't aware of that shorthand you might want to be more specific. Many people will just see the antigovernment sentiment, and this is exactly what the ruling capitalist class wants to happen. It obfuscates the problem and disguises the people that are really in charge and to blame.


chaseinger

not OP, and i couldn't agree more. it's *their* shorthand, and people are more than willing to run with it. because in the end, we all are "the government".


gregghughes123

Didn't mean to imply you personally, just in case it came across that way.


ZenMonkey47

"I can't understand why so many peasants are anti-monarchy." Said the king as he shoots someone with a crossbow "I think it's wonderful. I blame books."


CypherWight07

Economic subjugation and exploitation certainly feels like a crossbow bolt to the chest when they fire you for not being a mindless slave and put your children at risk of starvation.

shartedmyjorts

No, see, but *I'm* going to be rich someday too, so...

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” - Ben Franklin.


AnimusCorpus

Well fuck... That's bleak.


Toxic_Audri

Gives me hope, because I can see that more and more people are becoming outraged by our corrupted society that is rigged to benefit the wealthy, and more and more people are discovering just how bad the injustice is.


dont-feed-the-virus

This tweet gets more and more relevant everyday that passes.


Kuttlan

I went for a run today and I saw an ad for an apartment. 3 rooms. 72m². Thats 775 square feet. And the apartment is located on the outskirt of a big city. It sells for 790k.


catrinadaimonlee

tend to see it that way. another e.g. from my country singapore, where the one party state keeps the ppl tottering on the fence by take 2, give back one type tactics and of course out and out propaganda-brain washing as per governments everywhere... so we may have more anti-one party, but not real leftists, and very much not anti capitalists here, so i self isolate as much as i can.

If you're going to repost something from 8 months ago just to karma farm, at least come up with your own damn title. https://www.reddit.com/r/LateStageCapitalism/comments/ja0r6t/a_light_at_the_end_of_the_tunnel/


Cybertronic72388

How do you know that isn't just their alt and they rotate between them so that they can make a living by selling reddit accounts with good karma and real post histories to social media marketing companies? It's against the rules but its never stopping people from making a buck. https://www.soar.sh/service/buy-reddit-accounts/ https://accsmarket.com/en/catalog/reddit


CoatOld7285

Shhhhhhhut up before they take away our internet


Rick_The_Dick123

It actually is because of teachers, they are also applying for that job as a cashier that we're going for


PM_ME_UR_GOOD_IDEAS

This is why, after decades, a big push against CRT is revving up. "If education is not liberating, the dream of the oppressed is to become the oppressor,"


davesr25

Yup.


losthours

Yes because your world view, scope, and ability to reason has been distorted and destroyed by the education system that failed you completely.


ruiseixas

Because more people vote on Republicans with that argument than on socialists with any other.


mama_emily

They say it’s because of the internet 🎶

I was homeschooled by dirt poor conservatives. Switched up fast as soon as I saw how hard survival was.

purple_yosher

I mean college did radicalize me by putting me in debt until I'm like 40


human-no560

I mean, the job market is pretty good right now. But I agree with everything else


shartedmyjorts

If you’re cool working for a sub-livable wage.
