i may be very naïve, but i genuinely have no idea what Reddit atheism is and how it differs from atheism in general

Jacobin (yuck), but this article is a good one on the new atheists and how they use selective anti-religionism to support US empire.

What’s wrong with Jacobin?

This is all rather concerning, though I’m not fully convinced. Granted, the archive link and struggle sessions link are quite long, so it’ll take some time for me to read through it all.

I have to question how supporting an independent Hong Kong is pro-imperialism though. Isn’t China assuming control a form of imperialism, or do I not fully understand what imperialism actually is?

Also, I don’t really have an opinion on the Uyghur situation, as I’m not well informed on the matter. From what I’ve read of that Jacobin article, comparing what China is doing to America’s “War on Terror” seems somewhat applicable, I guess? Not directly, since it’s not a literal war, but I can’t imagine there being much support from Leftists for America doing something similar; that is, rounding up Muslims in America and re-educating them with “Western “culture”” (whatever that means).

I hope this doesn’t come across badly, I unfortunately did not have (and am still having issues with finding) good Leftist sources to read a non American-dogmatic version of events for what occurred in Hong Kong and with the Uyghurs. So any information you have on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
