I know. I can't divorce myself from my personal experience enough yet to do that, unfortunately. Work in progress, I guess. If it were a matter of a single person effectively chugging poison I'd say "whatever, you're exceptional but you're only hurting yourself". Communism is one of those poisons that doesn't limit itself so nicely, though. People hurting other people over this shit just fucks me up, and it's basically what Communism was DESIGNED to do.
you can't divorce yourself? More like you refuse to do so. My family has lost much of itself to the Reds as we have always been proud Whites, but you know what? We can separate our desire for vengeance from educating people about the dangers and the death toll of Communism simply because we realize that the damage it can cause is far greater than what it has done to us. We've been beaten, shot, starved, executed in all sorts of horrible manners and the only reason that I can speak my mind and not fear death is sadly, not because of the suffering that we've endured but because of some stupid american military build up.

Grow up, grow up and realize that you will never convince people to see the horrors of communism with such an angry tone. You do so with the fresh blood of its policy on your hand and tell everyone to look at what they did to your countrymen, to your family. If you lack that then you direct attention to just those people because they know a hell of a lot more than you do.
To be honest my friend I'm beginning to think I'm a very poor leftist. I find the failures of communism to be abhorrent. I hate identity politics and wokeness. Hell I don't even want to gulag dissidents. I'm not a stalinist, a tankie, ancom, I'm hardly even socialist. I just think the rich should pay more in taxes ala the 1960s, there should be true blue singlepayer (not obamacare), and throw in gov. funded college too. I want people to stop going into debt from ambulance rides.

In Europe this makes me right-leaning centrist. In America this makes me "pinko commie scum".
You are not a communist then, you are young and naive, but you have a heart of gold as you do care about others. You shouldn't ask rich to simply "pay more taxes" but you should crack down on tax loopholes to have large corporations pay more. I do not think that a government funded college will work without regulations to prevent the colleges from double dipping but you do not need college either. Trade schools are a wonderful thing and quite honestly things past high school are not for everyone. True singleplayer healthcare can work yes, but only on a population that overall cares for each other and will say no to those that would abuse the system by simply not taking care of themselves.

If somebody ever ask you what you are politically, you simply tell them that you're the old style of leftist, who does care for the working class not as empty words to reach a communist utopia that will never exist, but for the hard working men and women they are. Tell them that you do not look down on them and in fact want to uproot the ivory towers of those who do. Tell them that you are not afraid to get your hands dirty doing honest hard work because it is just that, honest hard work, there is no shame in it. You tell them that you believe the ones that deserve all these programs and help aren't the lazy bums who refuse to better themselves in favour of free government money, but the ones that put in work to better themselves.

Of course, you might be none of these things, you but I hope you are because the world needs more actual champions of the working class that fight against the ivory towers and the people that are content with never working to better themselves or their country.

Disproportionate reaction but clutching your pearls and having a public sperg attack because you are so deeply horrified by the sight of some train worker finishing their lunch is a pretty good indication that you're the kind of person who no one would want to be professionally associated with.
This could’ve been the straw that broke the camel’s back. It’s more likely they just were nervous about their optics and overreacted but there’s the chance they were just looking for an excuse to cut her.

The author is a cunt and the synopsis of her book sounds horrendous. On the other hand I find it hard to sympathize with a DC Metro worker.
