I love how cheeky this article is. Had myself some giggles.

I don't understand why Sarkicism is referenced so heavily. The contents of the logs are ""COMMUNISM SARKICISM SARKIC-MEKHANITE-WAR NUMBERS COMMIES". Two of these things are not like the others. If this was to make fun of them, Sarkicism is already doing that to itself - tell me that The Archegonium and The Cytoplasm don't sound like malevolent entities you would read about in a Sarkicism SCP. The name-drops detract from an otherwise interesting article, making it a below-average Sarkicism article and a resoundingly mediocre Fifthist article.
There are some lines I giggled at: "Make the Guillotines Red with Catsup", "To Bobby Jefferson I Know Youre Readin This", "Alright boys, Im all done here, go ahead and just roll the frog footage for the rest of the page I guess." The Fifthists are charming in their slightly unsettling cosmic horror way, but the Sarkicist piss-taking (which, while commendable) fails to land for me and instead pushes the article into awkward territory with funny bits interspersed with sections where it falters hard.
Are the parts about literally eating the bourgeoisie and the tirade against numbers supposed to be weird? Both are things I've seen genuinely and compellingly supported by actual leftists. Dial those entries up a notch and you have my upvote.
I love the one about math being CotBG propaganda.
Poe's Law there: I facepalmed a couple years back when a member of my state's congress declared that teaching critical thinking skills was subversive because it made people question what they were told by their elders and authority figures.
Yeah. How terrible. XD
So if super-communism is anomalous, does this mean regular communism is semi-anomalous?
Upvoted for Celebration "Big Cheese" Horace, but I do have a question.
This article states the effect pertains to printed periodicals. Does this specifically exclude digital? Could the downfall of the printed periodical be an effect or aim of containment efforts?
I'm lukewarm on this. I'm one to pepper my SCPs with references to other groups and articles, but I try to make sure the substance underneath is enough to work without relying on "oh hey, it's those guys!"
But when you look under all of that here, all you have is some kinda spooky letters about eating the rich and supporting a regime of flesh monsters for ideological reasons, the latter of which is conveyed more through proper nouns that tell us nothing than what would be evocative and cool.
The line about 'sitting around with no clear bodily orientation' is the kind of casual creepy-clever I want more of from this SCP. That and the whole bit with the frog footage, which made me chuckle.
