A spectre is haunting the Internets — the spectre of communism. All the powers of Old Media and Web 2.0 have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Televangelists and Liberal pundits, 9/11 truthers and Twitter hipsters, Reddit incels and image board shitlords.
Where is the defender of equality who has not been labeled a cultural Marxist by their opponents in power? Where is the discussion forum, where both the progressive posters and reactionary trolls alike, have not been accused of spreading communist propaganda?
Two things result from this fact:
I. Communism is already acknowledged by everyone to be the dankest meme in town.
II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the world, promote their Twitch streams and YouTube channels, showcase their sickest bants and speedrun strats, retweet their dad jokes and #hornyposts — ie. meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Communism with quality content of their own.
SO WHO THE HECK IS KRUGMAN?
Commie Gamer Krugman here. I host a good and clean (read: safe and fun) leftist vidya strim on Twitch. My strengths include being outrageously good at Japanese (JLPT N1 since 2005), quick at learning Chinese, non-problematic in tone and substance (big claim), and somehow a thesis away from MBA. I leverage these CoRe CoMpETenCieS to create unique and refreshing shite to blow away your stale memes and rhetoric. Come relax in a friendly nonsectarian environment, and tell me what you’d like to see next.
Briefly in Finnish:
Kommunistipeluri Krugman hurmaa katsojansa aseistariisuvan anglomaanisella retropelipoikuudella, altistaen heidät salakavalasti suggeroinnilleen. Juontajamme jalostaa viattomistakin viesteistä poliittisia puheenaiheita, ja rupattelee niistä rauhallisen rennosti rönsyillen. Kanavalla kuullaan mm. polttavan punaista polemiikkia, epäironista edistyksellisyyttä, sukkelaa sinofiliaa, ja jakobiinista japanologiaa – alituisen anteeksipyytelemättömällä asenteella. Hyväntahtoinen huumorikin hersyy. Ihmisvihamielinen ironia kitketään katsojasta kuten anime aikanaan.
Kaikki tämä tapahtuu neljällä kielellä, yleisön ymmärryskykyä ymmärtäen.
What the hell is all this shit?
Just a bunch of stuff I’m into. Does combining it make any sense whatsoever? You be the judge. 😀
What type of communism do you advocate?
I call myself a radical anti-sectarian. For me dogmas become meh towards the deep end, so rather than clinging onto one, I look for good things in all of ’em. That said, I also appreciate actually existing socialism – as well as certain remnants of such – more than some others. I’ve been called every bad name there is.
Bottom line is though, I’m not much of a theorist, so I concentrate on helping others not hate each other. Wanna make an impression? Show courage by revealing your face, and go talk to the masses instead of ragging on comrades online.
I remember you from Helsinki School of Economics / University of Macau / Sophia (上智) University, and came here to mock you.
