i’m a bit uneasy with the ‘liberals always side with fascists’ thing myself cause when those sorts of formulations come the other way like ‘revolution always leads to authoritarianism’ or whatever, i’m usually thinking “just give us another bash plz. will do better this time”. like there’s not been enough history to make that final decision yet imo. liberalism has had quite a few more chances though tbf.
but pretty happy saying the state under capitalism will swing right when put under duress. would like to see any example otherwise. and the nature of capitalism is that duress will come along every couple decades. (generous)
and as always we’re under time pressure to not let that happen because WE HAVE A GENERATION TO STOP CLIMATE CHANGE FROM MAKING THE EARTH AN UNLIVABLE HUSK.
