>>150766>Toward a new socialism
No one cares about Cockshitt. Tenured grifter that survives off the tit of public funds, yet is somehow also super duper insightful dissident. He need to spend more time researching the hyper advanced technology known as dental floss.>China
China lifted people out of poverty after Deng came to power and the leftists were wholesale purged from the CPC. Any achievement made in China prior to that (i.e., developing nukes) happened because those involved were spared from the influence of the Cultural Revolution.
>Nothing like that has ever been accomplished elsewhere
Lol, you actually believe this….
Passportless burgers are hilarious
>Liberals are basically fascists>People who don't 100% agree with my slave morality fantasy are fascists
How did CHAZ work out? Were they 'basically fascists' too, anon?
>Leftists support not exploiting other countries and creating a migrant crisis in the first place…
Damn, then why do so many migrants come from places like Cuba and Venezuela, which have trade embargoes against them? Shouldn't restricting (capitalist) trade make places like Cuba or Venezuela an abundant paradise? Imperialists aren't draining away their surplus, after all. (Instead, you get bloated bureaucracies and administrative states squandering it all. Instead of the development of the MoP, you get development of the means of maintaining power lol)
This is one of the many logical holes of leftism.
Going back to OP, useful Marxism has nothing to do with the pretensions of western faggots who proudly call themselves leftists.
>Just because the media calls democrats leftists doesn't make it true. The same way that you can say all the things they do is "communism" but the reality is that capitalists are making the decisions and running your country into the ground (at least for regular people), so you would be hard-pressed to find a problem that can't be attributed to capitalism in america.
And yet, I can point to capitalist countries with low crime rates such as Singapore, Japan, Korea, Norway, etc. You can also find communities in the US which don't suffer from the same sort of problems. Usually they are in places like Maine and New Hampshire - places of a certain ethnic demographic quality.
Despite your evidence-free insistence, capitalism is not the independent variable which is leading to shithole conditions in places like Portland and San Francisco.
Liberals share the same fake and ghey idolatry around equality as the left. The entirety of the left - liberals included - is essentially descended from Rousseau's naive fetishization of equality and belief the humans are essentially good, and that they are essentially a blank slate that needs to regulated via a social contract in order to achieve some ghey and subjective utilitarian ideal.
>Understanding capitalism in depth is the key to realizing how a bunch of seemingly separate trends are actually connected, and if you learn to reason along class lines you will have a much more realistic view of the world, and the solutions to problems you might come up with will improve as well. I would suggest reading about the ideas of Karl Marx, at least try to understand LTV.
You assume I've never read Marx.
Sorry anon, having the same ideas for decades on end, having nothing to show for it, not accomplishing anything, and never changing your ideas…. These things are not virtues or a sign of high intelligence.
Actual Marxists (the one's that accomplished something in their lifetimes beyond getting tenured at a 'fascist university') are very clear about the issue of where knowledge comes from: practice.
Specifically, knowledge is the ability the consciously alter the conditions of something.
Without the ability to consciously alter something, it isn't actual knowledge.
It's fake and ghey intellectual preening and appeals to authority, as exhibited by your post.
'Understanding capitalism in depth' is worth less than shit, in the words of Mao, without a concomitant practice with tangible results.
This is why I can confidently say that leftism and Marxism have nothing in common.
