Experiment: how many Tumblrites out there view socialism and/or communism as better ideas than capitalism/democratic republic? Reblog and tell me your age
age is a bourgeois construct
I’m annoyed that capitalism and…
Yes, I’m aware of all this. After 9 years of university and 15 more years living and paying exorbitant taxes I’m aware of a lot. Unfortunately not much of it was learned at said University.
Every time someone writes more than one paragraph I feel like I’m back at college, listening to some dry lecture. Or looking at a copy and paste from Wikipedia.
I do not need lectures- I have had enough lectures by 19 year olds still living off their parents, who think they know how the world works because they read it in a book.
I am curious as to how the younger generations feel about this topic- what they’ve been taught.
That is why I asked for ages. And opinions. But I got mostly hate notes and nonsense.
Some of these people don’t know one term from the other…….
It was a mistake as I know realize Tumblr is the land of the infantile….except for a rare few well done blogs I have found, it exists for entertainment and nonsense.
You asked for opinions. I gave you my opinion. My opinion is that I can’t choose one of your options because you made a poor comparison. It’s not my fault you don’t know the difference between a “lecture” and a correction. If anyone’s being infantile here, it’s you.
It was a lecture. A correction only requires a few sentences.
A word to the wise: beware, on Tumblr, the urge to write long descriptions and explanations. Not many here can be bothered to read them. They’ll skim it, at best.
Now I understand why professional colleagues of mine tried Tumblr and said forget it. Too many kids
I’m an adult. A young adult (mid-20s), but still an adult. I have years of direct experience in political activism and organizing. I have run and participated in several campaigns, mostly offline in my community, but online on a few occasions as well. I have run an activist organization (for about a year) and am currently in the process of co-founding/running another one. So stop implying that I’m juvenile or a child. When it comes to this topic I know what I am talking about.
You can call it a lecture if you want to call it a lecture, but it wasn’t meant as a lecture. And this is the last time I’m replying, because if you ~can’t be bothered~ to read a few paragraphs of text (especially on a complex subject like politics/economy), I can’t be bothered to waste my time talking to you.
P.S. - My first reply to your post was only a few sentences, if you’ll recall. You completely misinterpreted what I said, so clearly, a few sentences was not enough.
Ok, let’s start over. I’m not here to fight with people….there’s enough crap in this world without adding to it.
I am almost twice your age, so it is hard for me to relate sometimes, and my language is often different from someone in your age range.
That is one reason I am here- to understand people in their 20s.
You were annoyed by my post and I admit I could’ve been a little more clear in the terminology.
I was annoyed by your response, not because I think you’re wrong, but because you wouldn’t believe some of the idiot responses I’ve gotten and my patience was thin.
So I apologize for sounding like I thought you were 13.
I should’ve lit into that fool who’d never heard of a democratic republic and ROFL, instead of you.
This is what I’m curious about: how many people in their teens and 20s have liberal and/or democratic views and how they got them.
Was it from a beloved school teacher? Was it from a bad experience in the work force? Did their parents influence them? Is it because their friends are that way?
But all I get is responses from people that are like “what??”
Or they’re so inane I can only assume the person is 14.
I do not agree with socialism because it goes against human nature, not because I’m greedy, or hateful, or mean.
I am self employed and work like a dog because I couldn’t make enough to live working for someone else. But I hate the thoughts of govt help- I want to be beholden to NO ONE.
I still have student loans and business debt. It is a very small business. I do not take vacations, or even buy gifts on holidays. But I like the independence and answering to or relying on NO ONE. :D
So I’d love to hear your story. I saw your page- you’re Canadian and what we in the States would call a far Leftist. How did you develop these views?
