Marxism for people who don’t read books


so when people freak out when other people use the term "postmodern neomarxists", they're wrong?

Very. Postmodernism rejects historical materialism.

I've been working on formatting Black Bolshevik into EPUB and webpages to make it more accessible, as it's a very long book. At the moment chapters 1-3 are finished. Please contribute if you have the time.



For typos and misprints, I am using this PDF as a basis of comparison http://gen.lib.rus.ec/book/index.php?md5=AAF60EC535C8BCBE403DCF8E83CB5406


thanks for sharing Anon. what exactly do you need to "finish"? it looks like all the chapters are there on the page


I need to finish formatting the other chapters properly and correcting their spelling mistakes. These have just been converted from the scanned PDF as-is, so the automatic transcriptions are still a problem.
I'll keep working in this as I have time, but I appreciate any extra help as it's taking some time.


how do I compile EPUBS


I've been working on the epub that generated after converting the PDF so I'm not sure how you would compile it from scratch. Here's what I have so far compiled to epub (again, only the first three chapters are finished).


I don't want to leave the house, do any work or anything at all. I would rather lay in bed all day and do heroin. In a socialist society, what happens when I simply refuse to work at all? Do I get housed and fed, or do I starve?

Feel free to have an argument hedonist.


you go to rehab


my take is that in socialism, if you don't work you get like your basic subsistence met, like you don't starve, but that's it, you don't get to enjoy the good things in life without doing some work


"He who does not work, does not eat" - Lenin


Really it depends on the level of productive forces/abundance in the society. Compare "From each according to his ability, to each according to his contribution" with "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." I think, for example, in a socialist (lower-phase communism) Germany, you would be provided with a house and food, but probably not much more than that. In a sufficiently abundant higher-phase communism, I'm sure you could be afforded some luxury goods, depending on the level of abundance. People who don't wish to work (where what counts as work is much broader than modern-day capitalism) would be rare. The reason why "forced labour" existed in the USSR was simply because the society was poor and needed to develop quickly, etc.

What do people exactly mean when they claim Cuba and Venezuela were richer before their socialist governments? was it close to an oligarchy?
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


>Dirty commies took away grandpa’s slaves, they should all be exterminated, blacks belong to whites and Cuba belongs to America
Basically this


For what it's worth Venezuela in 1996 had an inflation rate of only 100% as opposed to back in 2018 when it reached up to 130,060%.



Cuba was actually a center for sex tourism, much like Thailand or the Phillipines today.


What exactly caused this inflation are they printing that much money ore is this some US chenanigans


Some little videos about it. At least Venezuela, it's common knowladge that Cuba under Batista was a playground for mafias and rich gringos.

What makes someone a nazbol or "reactionary leftist"?
7 posts omitted. Click reply to view.




Not an argument.


They don't. They think Soviet system is "Jewish" and they were the first to accuse Soviets of killing 100 billion. They just like the aesthetics and symbols of Nazbolism.




a reactionary is one who seeks to defend the system. their reaction is one of picking up arms in the name of capitalism. "left reactionaries," are those who have a veneer of do gooder, but where the rubber meets the road, you see their ideology is just a defense of capitalism. (except with black/gay CEOs for example) so when some 23 year old freshly minted critical theory person comes on the scene and obfuscates class consciousness by directing rage towards selected outgroups, they are in practice, a reactionary leftist. in their mind, they are "on the right side of history," but when you go to the root of their beliefs, they still want to preserve hierarchy, and still enable some rich fucks to control millions of people's lives, because their analysis ends at the thin veneer of "see i said the good thing on social media."

Just saw this video on the Soviet Antarctic ice cruisers called Kharkovchanka, and thought it was pretty good.
And I remember seeing here and there in all manner of different threads stuff like Soviet nuclear icebreakers and massive scaled naval hovercraft.
So I figure weird and supercool Soviet vehicles like those would be a great topic for an /edu/ thread,
as well as any normal Soviet vehicles of course because they're cool too.



this is also an interesting project that could have make a lot of things easier


I don't understand why people keep telling there's no innovation under socialism, the way I see it, there's only innovation that's actually needed. The only "innovation" capitalism came up with is technology that dumbs down the populations into obedient consumers.

You've heard this argument time and time again that there has never been a successful socialist country, so I thought it would be nice to have a thread talking about successful socialist countries.

Post history, share sources, let's make a list!

These pics are from the early 2010s. In those days "The USSR/China/DPRK wasn't real socialism" was unironically used a lot more by leftists online, so anticommunists would regularly spam the original "Only my specific form of socialism can work". Leftists at that time tried to counter that by making these lists even if it meant taking a bunch of people who had nothing to do with each other and throwing them all into the same bag. They're basically dead memes, I don't think I've actually seen anyone use them in years.

>This shit anit-uthoritarian meme again


go away radlib, this is /edu/


>Laying the groundwork
Barf. They clearly went off the rails to a fairly Nationalist State Capitalism.


Lmao you're not fooling anyone.


We should make a general history guide for an overview on leftists history movements/people/thinkers that type of thing

There's a lot to cover so we should just stick with what would make the best overview

it’s subjective. not in that anything goes. in that it depends on the person. only you know what you need.
