So during the (relatively) recent boycott against China, I saw how thick skinned people were about boycotting shit. For them either you buy nothing from China or don't even try and thus no one even tried and chalked it down to 'literally everything is made in China', even tho they love to portray themselves as the ultimate bharat bhakt. This and more things I heard made me come to the conclusion that boycotts mostly always fail So during the colonialism period, did the boycotts against the british work? Have they ever worked? (not talking about dictators just blocking trade cause they can)
>>242149 >So during the colonialism period, did the boycotts against the british work? they did have strong effects. it was the militant response in the end that really caused the british to finally pack up, but the economic tactics did have a strong effect when they were utilized. >Have they ever worked? yeah, even in the US the response to the stamp act played a major role in uniting the colonies to towards a militant response against the bongs
>>242149 No they didn't. British left because post WW2 maintaining Indian empire was a net loss, not because any of Gayndhi's boycotts.
>>242149 We should unironically be a Chinese ally in trade and be an isolated entity culturally instead of being a mutt puppet lapdog state that we're fast becoming. I swear by 2040 every Lundian will be more woke and self loathing than the stupidest and jamies and emilies from Ameriburger urban centres. Browsing social media these days is nauseating.
>>242173 For that we need to leave the commonwealth. But no we are cucks. We never truly left the Empire... I would love India to be an isolationist state..
>>242173 >instead of being a mutt puppet lapdog state that we're fast becoming. you guys are nowhere close to that the american left hates india for not doing enough chinkoid and muslim appeasement and the american right hates india for not doing enough chinkoid and musim oppression india has pretty much no proponents in the US because everyone is mad at the total inaction that defines indian governance. at the political level india is a useless non-actor, at the business level people would rather partner with china, SEA, or latin america, and at a people level nobody really cares because indians just like to blab about how much they hate their own culture
>>242174 >I would love India to be an isolationist state.. me too, fren but it will never happen. Lundia has indoctrinated the democrazy meme too far up it's own ass since it's independence. There is no hope now. we should have had a bloddy and violent revolution following independence and should have slaughtered the nehru tier elite "brown brit" clowns and their families and should have installed a people's government suited to India's diversity and culture. It's depressing to think that we're a lost case but it's the truth regardless. This country historically has never had a spine and has always had a misplaced sense of "muh goodwill" and "muh fair play" instead of thinking and acting practically. No country that "plays by the rules" ever develops and that's a fact. Especially not one with our size and diversity. China had the balls to fuck the rules and do whatever it took to take them from a shithole to a formidable country on the global stage. JewSA did the same thing in the world war 2 era. JewSA's shenanigans around the world, especially the post ww2 decades was one of the very few determining factors of their rise. They raped and plundered third world shitholes, pushed them into perpetual suffering and siphoned off their natural resources and stuck to their own economic principle to make their citizens lives better like any based country would do. Lundia on the other hand fell for the "democrazy with rotiz and freedumbz and shieetz " virtue signalling way too early.
>>242176 it's ok vroo, my teacher teach we wuz most diversity country and obama visited us to see how it was even possible to progress so fast
>>242173 > I swear by 2040 every Lundian will be more woke and self loathing than the stupidest and jamies and emilies from Ameriburger urban centres. Browsing social media these days is nauseating. Unironically. I live in muh South Delhi and holy shit I couldn't even joke about faggots in WhatsApp group during school days and it got worse in college. Every good looking guy/girl ik has pronouns in their socials. It's too tiresome ichbros. t.South Delhi anon
>>242178 Oh god, I though the western dick suckers would take more time to latch on the lefties trash trends, there's no coming back from this, seems our retard nation is bound to make every mistake in human civilisation, whether it be recorded in an old history book or some cringefags twitter. Why can't people learn from others msitakes
>>242179 As long as we are allied with whitoids, it doesn't matter a majority of our population doesn't follow it, it will be pushed down our throats and whitoids will make sure it will be. Look at Taiwan and how US under drumpf lobbied LGBT shit that was pushed down their throats even though majority of the country voted against it.
