Honest Government Advert | Corporate Welfare

The Australien Government just released this advert about its $1b handout to Adani for his reef-killing, water-guzzling, climate-changing, ancestral land-desecrating mega coal mine - and it's surprisingly honest and informative.

No sane person will dispute that the soviet union was a shitshow, for all kinds of reasons. But I think we have to be careful in how far we generalise this to leftist societies in general. It's also worth remembering that many of the 'far left' experiments, have taken place under extremely volatile conditions, such as in russia where there was both a major civil war and a power grab by an authoritarian assholse (Stalin) or spain which also faced a civil war. Those are not ideal conditions for the development of a decent civil society. There is a nice quote on that by Martin Buber: “One cannot in the nature of things expect a little tree that has been turned into a club to put forth leaves.”
