Of course his policies could be better, but it shows how effective nationalization is. The previous leader Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada is the one for the human rights violations, and guess where he is now? Hiding in America! Bolivia wants him charged for crimes against humanity.

Of course, probably not good enough, so here's a representative of UN's human rights watch praising Evo Morales for the progress he is making.

"Yea good for the region but not good overall" is like saying Cuba is poor because they're not as rich as America or Europe.

Besides, you've been supporting anarchist Youtubers that are famous for doing slurs anyways. I don't hate them for that reason, although they do take some slurs too far. There's a fine line, and I fully stand by the "anarkids" statement not going past that line.

EDIT: And yes, the people I call that are the younger anarchists on twitter, most of whom are actually teens. I do like that they're going for more left wing views, but I guarantee it they will find themselves to be extremely cringy a few years later.

It's fine to point out what barely anybody has. Other things have been hammered enough.
And why not? I am far left. I don't support emotional infighting tho.

Yea I should have specified sorry.

Talking politics at work is probably a bad idea though lol but except for the trump fan and the liberal (both are white) there seems to mostly be a smooth conversation.

Yeah, especially in this toxic climate.

There have been times in the past when I think either the workplace had enough shared values (for example LGB+ owned/operated or super friendly) or people were able to talk about some issues more openly, but it and religion just can lead to problems. It's kind of insane and I don't really get it. I'd rather know that someone is an unapologetic racist, misogynist, homophobe, TERF, whatever so I can put things into perspective. But then again, I've rarely considered coworkers to be 'friends'.

But granted, I came of age in a different time. People were much more circumspect about their "private lives" at work - queers especially. I think now younger people think it's much more normal to just be out there with all their business. While it's better not to be ashamed about one's private life (don't mean about being gay), I'm not sure I'd be particularly keen for my past coworkers to read about everything I do outside of work on FB or all my thoughts on Twitter. (And I'm thoughtful about what I decide to share here.)

I still wonder how many people lose out on this or that because someone evaluating an application looks at that person's social media and says "Do we really want a binge drinker or panty raider?"

Not gonna lie though, seeing his video on Uyghur camps in china really makes me question the narrative of it when you see the initial report and the people who are involved in fighting against it.

so what, imams are children? Seems like the next logical step will be repudiation of the prophet :sarcasm: and we can guess how popular an idea that will be.

I get the concern, but the response seems more like pandering to the right (Le Pen) than about 'republican values'. And as much as I worry about any form of fundamentalist encroachment on other people's freedoms, I don't believe you can protect one by infringing on another (right, freedom, person, religion, whatever). It's also illogical to expect religious adherents of any faith to lock that faith up inside their religious institutions and homes. Religion is such an important part of identity for believers, it's nonsense to expect that they will completely ignore their beliefs when out "in the world."

Feels like pouring gasoline on a smoking pile of fuel.

None of those people know who that is. I assumed correctly based on the flag (whose blue seems totally off to me) and the context of your comment, but I had no idea what Guaidó looked like.

seems the words communist, socialist, and fascist are thrown around a bit too freely in current political discourse, not to forget the use of the word liberal as an epithet - all the of these words are growing meaningless unless one defines them in the course of the discussion.
