The history of brainwashing Show more
"Brainwashing" was like a colloquial joke some Chinese and Korean communists used to refer to giving American POWs communist literature to read, because it tended to result in POWs turning against America and they were like "Wow their minds have been cleansed of American trickery haha cool" and then the CIA caught wind and was like "THE CHINESE AND KOREANS ARE CONTROLLING THE MINDS OF OUR SOLDIERS THROUGH COMMUNIST 'BRAINWASHING'!!!!" (a direct and literal translation which was more like "becoming of a clean mind")
Brainwashing and communism have always been associated with each other which means communist mind control fetishists are celebrating a long-standing tradition and reclaiming red scare propaganda for our own fucking hot ends #hypno #hypnokink
🚨 PSA FOR NEW USERS 🚨 CW: abuse, rapist, drama, here we go again Show more
Several new Tumblr refugees have landed on her instance, starrevolution. They can't see this, but, I'm hoping to somehow help someone not stumble into a really bad situation. She will tell you that I am an abuser for letting you know this public information, or a nazi, or whatever else.
Please do not respond to the inevitable subtoots. Please do not try to start a discourse. Just, be aware, and stay safe. Thanks y'all.
"you wouldn't download a" trivia (cw: sketchy business practices) Show more
Hollywood-funded anti-piracy association Brein, the people who made the "you wouldn't download a car" ad, tried to stiff Melchior Rietveldt, the musician who composed the music for it, out of the vast bulk of his royalties. They told him the ad would only be shown at a local film festival, then stuck the ad on a bunch of DVDs and acted like they had full right to.
So, like, if you're ever wondering if anti-piracy capitalists hate piracy? The answer is "no". They'll steal and lie seven days a week and twice on Sundays. They just hate seeing people enjoy media without paying them.
Whiteness and Privilege. Show more
Make sure when you say people of color, that you are saying it to mean anyone who is denied WHITENESS. Jewish folks are denied whiteness too. That whole who is and isn't white is not only based on color, its based on social norms that must be preserved for our oppression. This is why white power must be dismantled. That means relinquishing your privilege if you are pale skinned like me.
