You fags literally changed the subject to "muh economicssss"

>That's also not the biggest part or problem of your "groups" because the main issue is the promotion of socio-economics systems that are illogical, inefficient and finally ethically abhorrent.
>Socialist education is one of the only things even its biggest enemies admit is top tier, I don't see why you would choose to nitpick this of all things lmfao. In my country over half the people were illiterate peasants, then when communism came they not only eradicated illiteracy, but they established such an advanced polytechnic education that it didn't even take a generation for a country of unga bunga farmers to turn into a country of engineers, builders and architects.
Idk man, it seems like those people were educated to be just good enough to carry on with their life in service to the state. The measured amounts of inventions in a time of technological innovation that we've discussed previously shows that there wasn't much development there.
>My fucking sides. I knew fascoids had shit for brains but I didn't see this coming LMAO. If they're trying to turn USA socialist, why not do a reverse COINTELPRO instead of fucking declassifying documents nobody cares about from 50 years ago about the USSR's calorie intake? Fuck it, why not coup the country, or help re-establish the USSR? Could it be that it's just the Freedom of Information act– no, that can't be it, it's C(ommunism)IA turning the people gay and socialist!!!
it makes a lot of sense lmao, maybe if you weren't retarded you could understand how i at least have a fucking point you negroid.

Can anyone recommend me a good book about the 1932-1933 soviet famine? I am honestly not a communist so I am not inclined to defend/condemn Stalin, but I am interested if someone can offer me a neutral book on the subject.
Because from what I've read, many popular books on the subject are complete crap (see link)

There was a book that I forgot called 100 year anniversary of the bolshevik revolution, or, something that talks about why and how the narrative is a bit of bullshit and how the numbers were severely inflated by sources like the black book of communism. People basically just hate communism (wonder why) and so they want to smear it. Sorry I can't actually remember the name of the book anon.

Which constructed international language is best?

Esperanto is the most well-known but has many flaws and has no interest in correcting any of them.

Ido is an improved Esperanto but that's like calling it the thinnest kid at fat camp.

Novial is pretty good but it splintered too much towards the end and never recovered.

Occidental isn't bad but it reads like "Novial v0.7".

Interlingua tries hard but it reads like it wants to be all things for all people and winds up being nothing good for anyone.

What's leftchan's take on international languages?

I'm not sure what you are looking for. You haven't mentioned Lojban, that's also a semi famous constructed language. It tries to be syntactically unambiguous.

>What's leftchan's take on international languages?

2. Mandarin Chinese 1.120 b

All good communists study math.

What are you studying right now? What is your favorite field of mathematics and why?

Personally, I really like the book "Linear Algebra Done Right" by Sheldon Axler. It is on Libgen if you are interested and I attached a pdf.

Just saying, Bordiga was an engineer. Makes sense, he was autistically literal and uncompromising like a STEMy vs the artsy-fartsy Gramsci who spawned generations of culturally obsessed navel-gazing "Marxists" with his post-hoc "theories" justifying his failed politics.


This is why I love Bordiga, he does math so I don't have to.

I think everyone who is interested in math should study linear algebra algebraically so that they can know duality (by studying dual space), Erlangen program and the foundation of non-Euclidean geometry (by studying bilinear forms), Lie groups (by studying classical groups), representation theory (by noting that S_n is isomorphic to the group of permutation matrices so that every finite group is isomorphic to a matrix group.), etc. Of course it could be challenging but it would give them more mathematical maturity than randomly studying tons of other fields.

>Is Elements good?
It is really good for your free time. For a degree, it is useless.
Some parts of Elements are really mind blowing. For example, he understands number theory by geometry. For him, the number '1' is the same as a segment of which the length is 1, "a divides b" means one can measure a segment 'b' by a segment 'a' so that the greatest common divisor means the greatest common measure by which one can measure both 'a' and 'b', etc.

Category theory is a must if you are into some fields like algebraic geometry, number theory, topology, etc. In those fields, people use it more than set theory.
The power of category theory comes from its relativism, generality, intertwining many fields into one. Unlike set theory, you can map topological spaces to groups, their homeomorphisms to homomorphisms in category theory. Of course you can do like that with any other mathematical objects. And you can build a category theory without objects (in fact, the identity morphisms are sufficient to replace all the objects) so you can get all the property of objects not from the objects themselves but only from their relations. Thus you can get result by only drawing some diagrams. This is called "Abstract nonsense" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstract_nonsense).
