It's the 1970s all over again.

People are getting tired of whiny spoiled Left Wing hippies kicking dumpsters over and the government/media's coddling of minorities and freaks at the expense of the average American and are voting Nixon in.
Including the seething hatred that people keep voting in establishment politicians, it's almost like those that count WANT the establishment, and we know that CAN'T be! After all, nobody I know voted for NIxon!

aren't there cases of small groups communism working fine?
Many cases, but they're all either "primitive" people from Paleolithic man to some groups of American Indians (for instance, the Plains Indians were great communists/anarchists in some ways) or Australian Aboriginals or some tight-knit religious groups. You can't have communism in larger societies without some level of compromise with human nature and economics.

The only acceptable ideology is globohomo neoliberalism. They’ve spent the better part of 2017 and 2018 purging anyone who steps out of line on the right; now they are purging anyone who steps out of line on the left.

Chapo Trap House embraces globohomo but not neoliberalism. They better get back in line or else they will start getting a deluge of clickbait attack articles and attempts to cut their Patreon funding.
Neoliberals successfully co-opted the far left in part because of their support of open borders. In typical Marxist theory, open borders isn't a bad thing because workers will all organize for their rights and overthrow capitalism no matter where they're from. Unfortunately, the problems of this theory were known by the left since the 1800s, hence why the two Socialist Party members elected to Congress opposed immigration. Like a lot of Marxist theory, in a perfect world open borders would work and it would be great. Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world, and while communists know this, it doesn't stop them from advocating for it alongside more sensible (for a given degree of "sensible") positions of workers' rights. The globalist neoliberals like this because they love immigration and can redirect the left's attention to open borders while only giving token support for workers' rights, which takes the form of minimum wage raises as opposed to anything structural where the best you'll get is Obamacare which is great for them because they get to hand out free cash to the insurance industry.

Chapo Trap House is already hated by the worst neoliberals. Look what Moviebob has to say about them. Even their subreddit has issues with them.

Because the Democrats were dumb enough to put Mcgovern as their candidate instead of someone more sane like Muskie. But dumb Democrats are nothing new, this is the same party who put the ultimate establishment figure Hillary as candidate in a time when no one wanted the establishment on either side and are eager to repeat the same mistake in 2020.

I don't know. I'm going with Styx's explanation (around 3:30 in that video): big tech internet censorship has always been about money and still is.

The political angle is spin they're using the get everyone on board. The leftists like that censorship is being used against the right (because leftists are becoming hugely authoritarian) so they don't object, and then the right will demand the same censorship standard be upheld against the left, so we'll be left with censorship across the board that everyone cheered on for different reasons. When all Silicon Valley is really doing is trying to force "independent content" to be as milquetoast as possible so no advertiser could possibly be offended by their algorithmic association with it.

Don't assume these filthy rich companies aren't a few steps ahead of your average partisan wackjob.
Yeah. It's pretty smart. You don't need to force anyone to do anything if you convince them that people they don't like are going to suffer. It's worth it to own the libs/bash the fash

Communism would work great if everyone had equally valuable skills and talents, and was equally motivated all the time.

Meanwhile, in the real world, there are r9k denizens and thots and hood rats.
 
If communism could work with human nature it wouldn't need to be formalized and enforced, like how capitalism just happens.

If communism worked we'd be communist.

Neoliberalism has nothing to do with political liberalism. It is a term for economic liberalism or laissez-faire capitalism.
In my experience it's used as a nihilistic thought terminating cliche, for the most part.

No, it has an actual meaning. Milton Friedman would be the classic example of a neoliberal economist. Its main thrust is free market capitalism. It has nothing to do with politics, as such.
Certain politics are often attached though. In this way, neoliberalism and neoconservativeism both center around financial deregultion and free trade (also global hegemony,) while still having different ideas on how to maintain social cohesion.

One major difference is neoconservatism is almost exclusive to Republicans in the United States, while neoliberalism is the predominant economic philosophy of Republicans, Democrats, and much of both the "left" and "right" political parties of Europe and considerably more cancerous.

Among Trump's few good points is that he is decidedly opposed to neoliberalism.

The Chapo Trap House subreddit is the worst subreddit on the site. Even people in The_Donald have better critical thinking skills than CTH posters. If you disagree with CTH faggots any bit, they will ban you and also go through your post history to see if you post in "problematic" subreddits. TD people are tards in a cult, but they will actually provide some form of argument if you go against them.

And the CTH podcasters are the ultimate Jew capitalists with them hiding their content behind paywalls and how they form political opinions around what could be marketed to their audience.

I'm somewhat surprised it took this long to be quarantined because in one episode one of the hosts literally said he wished the bullet which hit Steve Scalise actually hit his heart. And that episode went up a while ago.

The difference between the Donald and the Reddit left is the Donald is a group of people looking for a great leader. Instead they got trump. So they project what they want in a leader onto trump. where as chapo trap house is a ravenous mob looking to legitimize their most vile impulse s under a thin veneer of morality

Oh, I understand it has a context and meaning. But usually I see it in political discussions rather than economic ones, and it's used there to basically say "Lol you idiots democrats and republicans are exactly the same why argue about it?"

Much like the concept of "privilege" has a use and meaning in certain social discussions, but it's often used as a thought terminating cliche to shut someone up.

I long thought that "neoliberal" in the US would refer to a pragmatic Democrat, a reasonable Republican, or a thoughtful person who was neither one but could fit in the moderate fringe of either party, and that it was related to phrases like "the Washington consensus" and "sound global economic policy".

Neoliberal is the alt-left euphemism for globalist.

No it means sell out or pretender. If Bush jr was a true conservative he would have not pursued war on flimsy pretenses or pursued anti privacy policy via warrantless wiretapping.
Ron Paul can be seen as a true conservative.

Same with tulsi vs Clinton. Tulsi is seen as a true liberal where Hillary is seen as a sell out (corporate puppet who puts on the veener of liberalism)

Yeah, it's also used quite continuously in a "no true scotsman" style, as seen here.
