a few weeks ago i was talking to my trot friend and he offhandedly referred to the mass line as 'conducting a poll.' crude metaphysics rules everything around me cmream, get the survey,
I mean it is just a paper but given the way things are people could reasonably assume that the group was wwp based on us having the paper. And i can see the articles appearing in the paper already discussing the distribution and implying it was a WWP run thing. Sort of like how the frso paper reports on activities that seem random and aren't identified as being run by the party but they obviously are.
Offer the chance to win a free iPad by filling out a simple survey. Have someone there claiming that they won an iPad the same way. It could work.

Now the mark's greed comes in. If he's a good man, he gives the old maoist his little red book and informs him of his good fortune, and the scam has failed (although the communists haven't lost money or gotten in any trouble). If he's a lowlife, however, the scam may succeed. He offers the old maoist a thousand dollars for his little red book — the old man clearly has no idea of its actual value, but loves it like a family member. The price goes up and up, and eventually the communist gives in, selling his beloved little red book for ten thousand dollars. He walks out with the money, and the new owner waits a bit, then calls the number on the card. It's a false number, of course, and any professional little red book dealer will immediately recognize that the little red book is worth perhaps 2 dollars, theres literally millions of them, and the two communists meet up to split the take and get another little red book.

I have just come back from a party where I was the life and soul. Witticisms flowed from my lips. Everyone laughed and admired me—but, I left, yes, that dash should be as long as the radii of the earth's orbit ——— and wanted to shoot myself
any idea how to level up willpower....
depends what the context is but i often find it helpful to frame willpower as more like a psychic inertia rather than a skill or strength.
so take small steps with that dynamic in mind, cultivate consistency, use bursts of motivation strategically, engage actively with others toward shared goals, recognize/value any small successes, and be ruthless in making it very difficult for yourself to indulge in anything that drains your willpower or enables avoidant behavior. also mental health basics like eat healthy, exercise outdoors, irl affection/friendship, good music.
** lol, i just reread this and i sound like a platitudinous twat. anyway i dunno, my sense of agency/purpose/self is often a blur but it's the little things that help me hold it together most of the time. hth

When I brought this up and said I would not be attending, my buddy was like 'were on native land, what's inappropriate about that?'
It's ok to steal the land as long as you steal the culture after I guess
