May Day on self-isolation

May Day on self-isolation

For the first time in stories The Day of Spring and Labor, which for millions of compatriots was and remains the Day of Solidarity of Workers, is perceived as something particularly acute. Slogan itself "Peace Labor may!" began to play with new notes.


Faced with the need for self-isolation, we all, as they say, felt with all my gut that we have the right to work. A sort of providence grimace, which showed that dreams of relaxation can turn out to be vanity at all against the background of a desire to proportionally combine work and rest.

Today, May 1, 2020, the solidarity of the workers is definitely a problem. Some, perhaps, would like to identify with others. But it doesn’t work out, based on the sometimes diametrically opposite rules established by employers and local authorities.

The uncertainty associated with the pandemic, about which all ears have already buzzed from television screens and “all irons”, does not give an understanding of who works specifically, who specifically rests and who will feed someone who has to rest beyond those volumes that the body has tired of ...

So it turns out that if there is a Holiday of Spring and Labor, then today it is pretty deformed - spring is coming, spring is the way, it just passes by millions of people around the world. Labor seems to be needed, but at the same time, those who wish to work do not always and not everywhere have such an opportunity, even if they have a job.

Coronavirus fragment society, making people isolated. Working in such conditions is, by definition, unnatural. However, if you do not work, then the prospects loom even more vague than today's reality for many, many people.

However, on such a day, I still do not want to delve into the dull labyrinths of philosophy, but I want to express the hope that all this, so to speak, nonsense will end soon. I would like to hope that any of the compatriots will overcome this section of the life path with dignity, continue to engage in the business that he has chosen for himself, and will not lose faith in himself or in those around him.

And yet, no matter what, with a holiday!

    Today we celebrate a big holiday, the Day of International Workers' Solidarity - May Day, which is now celebrated under very special circumstances. May Day, the day of international unity, solidarity and struggle, which draws strength from the great historical struggle of the working class for their rights.
    The modern bourgeois systemic crisis of capitalism is pulling society into the abyss. The capitalist, non-bourgeois system went bankrupt. The bourgeoisie and the neocapitalist system have nothing to offer the people. Humanity can survive only if it is freed from capitalism and the neo-bourgeoisie, which is trying to draw the people into a new feudalism. Only the people themselves can save themselves from the greatest suffering, from the exploitation of their capital and the bourgeoisie. Let’s say all together on OUR holiday, to all these nonsense: No - to increase the retirement age, No - to the destruction of free health care, No - to the destruction of free education, No - to the killing of culture, No - to the deterioration of social security. We have earned the right to a better life!
    Happy holiday dear friends! I heartily congratulate you on the Day of International Solidarity of Workers! We will definitely win!

      Happy holiday! Friends!

      With the holiday of solidarity of the workers against the oppression of the capitalists and for the struggle for Socialism!

      That was exactly the original meaning of this holiday in Russia. This was written by Vladimir Ilyich.

        Happy International Workers' Day!

        In Soviet times, the working man was respected and respected. After the collapse of the USSR, so much in the post-Soviet space we have lost so much human that we can’t count!

        Everyone does not get sick, do not lose their jobs and loved ones in these difficult pandemic days!
        All success and good mood!

        The street is dear. Spring on Zarechnaya street.

          We who live in the Union remember
          a series of spring demonstrations ...

          I, a bully, was blowing up balls
          not knowing that just about from the globe
          power will disappear
          and they’ll grab axes for construction.
          Peace, Labor and May ... Injured by Someone Brezhnev
          I could guess - just a little bit:
          bring divine essence into everything,
          to become Russia joyful, vast.
          "Peace to all" - is proclaimed in the churches.
          We read everywhere about all saints.
          And in May we perform a red service.
          But it did not fit in the heads.
          One hundred twenty eight nations that day
          in the republics of fifteen they danced,
          nevermind sent to capitalism
          profaned speculation and laziness.
          Perhaps, having erased the past error,
          with God's help, we again create this:
          melodious, big, labor,
          live with a conscience, not rooting for yourself?
          Perhaps a miracle, for Christ has risen.
          Everything will change inside, outside, everywhere!
          But labor is needed as the preface to the miracle
          and solidarity, like a shelter from thunderstorms.

            Belov did not want to combine incompatible. Blessed.
            And there is no longer the proletariat, there is no and there can be no solidarity in the global human viper, where the principle, every man for himself and is strong, is driven to feed the younger generation, the next generation. What is it to live by the interests of society, collectivism, before thinking about the homeland, and then about yourself is not perceived by those who are 30. What to speak of younger and younger.
            There is no sense of celebration, hopelessness. Forgive me comrades. Better, I lay down there under the tank guns at 93m. Zadolbalo live 30 years as a partisan, in his own, like, land.

                Thank. And you with a holiday! It’s good that there are still optimists and people who believe in victory. Only the driving force of the revolution has always been and will be youth, and it is poisoned by bourgeois morality. Massively.
                What, in a normal society, would they do to nonhumans, such as Christina Somova, after more than an open post?
                I think the majority of young and advanced just neighing, the chick is burning. Our people gobbled up from the inside. With whom will we fight?

                  First of all, it is necessary to defeat ourselves, to reject strife, to forget about fear, to throw the philistine philistinism off the head, well, to tell, to tell and to tell young people, to educate them, to educate them, not to agitate.
                  I used to think that young people are apolitical, and not a damn thing, the majority are very politically active, they only attract them in bulk, and we must win over!

                    Personally, I don't need to defeat myself. Is that age-related ailments. They will call me to join the ranks, but you are probably more fortunate with such politically active youth. More and more I come across a qualified consumer. I try to convey, as far as possible, the truth about the USSR, about the correct structure of society. Either they do not believe, or they do not perceive, because the worldview of an individualist and life in the jungle "you can't get it, you can't eat it," they pushed and fixed them tightly. Conversation of the blind with the deaf. Wall. And Navalny is clear to them, because according to the same principle of the jungle "Akella missed" the power gnaws. And in the background of these "revolutionaries" and sympathizers there is a simple idea - to pick up and climb into their fat place.

    One of the greatest events in world history is the May 1 holiday, the Day of International Workers' Solidarity. Today May Day is significant in that this year all progressive mankind celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of the greatest man, the founder of the world's first socialist state, the state of workers and peasants, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Happy Holiday! Happiness, peace, health, kindness and prosperity!

      Happy Holidays!
      You can’t say better than Lenin (written by Lenin in 1905):
      Comrades workers! The day of the great holiday of the workers of the whole world is approaching. On May XNUMX, they celebrate their awakening to light and knowledge, their union in one fraternal union to fight against all oppression, against all arbitrariness, against all exploitation, for the socialist structure of society. All who work, who feed the rich and noble with their labor, who spend their lives in overwork for a meager pay, who never use the fruits of their labor, who live like pack animals in the splendor and splendor of our civilization, they all reach out to fight for the liberation and happiness of the workers. Down with hostility between workers of different nationalities or different religions! Such enmity is beneficial only to robbers and tyrants living in the darkness and fragmentation of the proletariat. A Jew and a Christian, an Armenian and a Tatar, a Pole and a Russian, a Finnish and a Swede, a Latvian and a German - all, all come together under one common banner of socialism. All workers are brothers, and in their strong union the only guarantee for the good and happiness of all working and oppressed humanity. On May XNUMX, this alliance of workers of all countries, international social democracy, makes a look at its forces and rallies for a new, tireless, adamant struggle for freedom, equality and fraternity.

    Yeah, they used to get ready for the holiday, went with his wife to a demonstration from her knitwear factory, knew almost all of her team and their husbands, drank, talked, went to visit each other and where did everything go? Instead of the factories of the shopping center, instead of factories in general, you’ll understand what the hell they did, today is a working day. It seems to me that capitalism is doomed as a system; it will gobble up itself. In it, the social network is dead, but for people it is very important. Again, the hard workers will have to unite and put on a stake our homegrown capitalists, headed by the redhead. After all, strangely enough, but his gopkompakka, with whom he began to destroy the USSR, is slowly decreasing. Otherwise, we simply will not survive, in the sense that our children and grandchildren will not see anything good.
    The other day I read a short story by L.N. Tolstoy's "Boss and Worker", it is well written, what the greed for profit leads to.
    P.S. No, that’s also wrong, I parted a funeral service.
    All a happy holiday and all the best that you wish for yourself, well, and drinks everyone to hear the clinking of glasses.

    For me, May 1 is associated with CHILDREN and HAPPINESS. I am a little girl carrying a flag, and MY FAVORITE MOTHER goes next.
    I don't care about verbal husks. Let everyone take offense at me, ALL AUTHORS, but NOBODY can come up with the best words: PEACE, MOTHER, LABOR.
    I DO NOT BELIEVE THE PERSONALITIES OF POLICY. Even if he dives headlong into the red paint and shouts the most beautiful words to hoarseness, but he is a WORM POPULIST. NOBODY AND NEVER COMPARED WITH LENIN !!!
