Can we get rid of the super cringy alt text now. I don't know which one of you dipshits pretended to come up with it but it's real lame. Otoh if it was a scheme to get me to not want to post here it's more effective than anything the mods have tried so far.

I don't remember who specifically chose it but it used to be the mouseover text and it was more fun as an Easter Egg sort of thing when nobody had to look at it but it would just pop up if you randomly happened to leave your mouse hovering over the c-spam link. It's much more cringe now that it's just out in the open.

Anyway, you can't just get rid of it since someone decided that every subforum has a visibly posted alt text now.

We have to think of something to replace it with.

THE POSSESSION OF WEALTH IS IN AND OF ITSELF A SIGN OF POOR VIRTUE. AS SUCH:
1 NEVER TRUST ANY RICH PERSON.
2 NEVER HIRE ANY RICH PERSON.
BY RULE 1, IT IS APPROPRIATE TO PRESUME THAT ALL DEGREES AND CREDENTIALS HELD BY A WEALTHY PERSON ARE FRAUDULENT. THIS JUSTIFIES RULE 2--RULE 1 NEEDS NO JUSTIFIC

You stupid bitch Poogan, the paradigm of rights is bourgeoisie, everyone loving knows it's bourgeoise it's not about workers having more loving rights because that's a category of bourgeoise law you stupid gently caress! Do you know anything Poogan? Do you know anything? Do you know anything? You think proletarian dictatorship is about rights? No it's not. It's about the dictatorship of one class against another! It's about the use of the state for violent purposes to suppress the class enemy! That's what it is Poogan! It's got nothing to with "getting workers rights".

You loving fabian bitch. You fabian philanthropist bourgeoisie socialist bitch. You loving think, this is why, because Poogan has the mentality that socialism means benevolent elites who comes from the bourgeoisie take power and "give the workers some charity give em, give em some". No Poogan the workers themselves seize state power violently and use it for repressive ends against the class enemy. The workers themselves are the ones doing it you loving idiot! "Are we going to help the workers or harm them?" Poogan, you dumb gently caress the workers subject is not separate from the state. The Soviet state acts on behalf of the working class and its interests. It does not stand apart from the working class, it is the working class politically, it is the working class politically. And because you're an individualist retard you're gonna say "well it wasn't individually the working class" yeah, because there is a difference between individuals or even the sum total of individuals and the method of their actually political reality and representation you dumb gently caress. There is a discontinuity between politics and individual reality but because you're an individualistic retard American you don't seem to loving understand that, yes the Soviet state was a proletariat
