Not maybe, definitely.
The truth is that most of the left is defeated. The few serious communists (and anarchists) remaining simply possess and use the minimum critical faculties necessary to be aware of this fact, though they may not communicate it directly.
All the other leftists are still in denial, hence their tendency to masturbate to right-wing social democrats and go deep into identity "politics".
The left has no coherent strategy.

Honestly preferable to most of the rest of the left because I don't think they're actually trying to bullshit me in a country where pretty much everyone else is running some kinda scam. You might think they're wrong but I don't think there's any divide between what they say on those streams and what they actually believe. Whatever you think about them, they're very consistent. And that is why they're an enormous failure!

The logic of accumulation lies in the growing concentration and centralization of control over capital. Formal ownership can be spread out (as in the “owners” of shares in pension plans), whereas the management of this property is controlled by financial capital.

We have reached a level of centralization in capital’s power of domination, such that the bourgeoisie’s forms of existence and organization as known up to now have been completely transformed. The bourgeoisie was initially formed from stable bourgeois families. From one generation to the next, the heirs carried on the specialized activities of their companies. The bourgeoisie was built and built itself over the long run. This stability encouraged confidence in “bourgeois values” and promoted their influence throughout the entire society. To a large extent, the bourgeoisie as dominant class was accepted as such. Its access to the privileges of comfort and wealth seemed deserved in return for the services they rendered. It also seemed mainly national in orientation, sensitive to national interests, whatever the ambiguities and limitations of this manipulated concept might have been. The new ruling class abruptly breaks with this tradition. Some describe the transformation in question as the development of active shareholders (sometimes even characterized as populist shareholders) fully reestablishing property rights. This laudatory and misleading characterization legitimizes the change and fails to recognize that the major aspect of the transformation involves the degree of concentration in control of capital and the accompanying centralization of power. The new ruling class is no longer counted in the tens of thousands or even millions, as was the case with the older bourgeoisie. Moreover, a large proportion of the new bourgeoisie is made up of newcomers who emerged more by the success of their financial operations (particularly in the stock market) than by their contribution to the technological breakthroughs of our era. Their ultrarapid rise is in stark contrast with their predecessors, whose rise took place over numerous decades.

The centralization of power, even more marked than the concentration of capital, reinforces the interpenetration of economic and political power. The “traditional” ideology of capitalism placed the emphasis on the virtues of property in general, particularly small property—in reality medium or medium-large property—considered to purvey technological anPost too long.

Absolutely nothing about this is new. This shit was as true in the seventeenth century as it is now.
>The bourgeoisie was initially formed from stable bourgeois families.
Lel, no it fucking wasn't. It was formed of the bastards, the second sons, and the adventurers who plundered the New World. They were the least stable group imaginable.
>To a large extent, the bourgeoisie as dominant class was accepted as such.
The fuck? It wasn't even accepted as such after the French Revolution. It wasn't recognized until after the turn of the Twentieth Century. Even Marx called it the "middle class." Who is the idiot who wrote this flagrant ahistorical bullshit?
>Samir Amin
Of course.
>Its access to the privileges of comfort and wealth seemed deserved in return for the services they rendered.
…to absolutely nobody. The aristocrats considered them to be savages and upstarts. Workers considered them to be little different from bandits (hence the term "robber barons"), and the peasantry thought of them as puffed up nobodies. It's like this idiot never read anything written in the ninteenth century.
>The new ruling class is no longer counted in the tens of thousands or even millions, as was the case with the older bourgeoisie.
Gee, it's almost as if the petit-bourgeoisie is dying out for some reason, like something is causing their rate of profit to fall globally.
>The English term crony capitalism should not be reserved only for the “underdeveloped and corrupt” forms of Southeast Asia and Latin America that the “economists” (the sincere and convinced believers in the virtues of liberalism) denounced earlier.
The term is reserved for use by fools who refuse to recognise that it's just how capitalism works. It has worked that way since the Dutch East India Company was founded, and even folks in the seventeenth century recognized it.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

In the classical stage of capital, capitalists were more define by the ownership of physical capital (factories) which hadn't been massively divested through common stock ownership. Sorry, but people having pension plans tied directly to stock private stock ownership wasn't really a thing until recently, at least not on a mass scale. Similarly, while there has always been financiers, they didn't former unto themselves a distinct ruling class (i.e., the Rothschilds weren't treating the Fords or the Rockefellers like middle managers). The point Amin is making relates to the complete dominance of finance capital
>Lel, no it fucking wasn't. It was formed of the bastards, the second sons, and the adventurers who plundered the New World. They were the least stable group imaginable.
Lol, Pizzaro didn't go on to start a factory. Capitalist isn't synonymous with 'bad guy'
>The fuck? It wasn't even accepted as such after the French Revolution. It wasn't recognized until after the turn of the Twentieth Century. Even Marx called it the "middle class." Who is the idiot who wrote this flagrant ahistorical bullshit?
It would help if you read things in context instead of using the splitting hairs of sound bites approach

I could be wrong, but he seems to be implying that the 'old bourgeoisie' was tied directly to productive capital which actually made things of practical use to the nation, not disembodied hegemonic capital tied mainly to banking and financial services

Yes agreed, why did you say commercial airliners are derivative of long range bombers then?

That happened in the 50's and DeHavilland is defunt.
>But don't forget the DC-10 crashes that cost it the competition with the 747.
I concede this point. I think it's important to remember the McDonald Douglas is no longer an airline maker though.
>Also remember the Tu-104
Production was stopped in 1960 because of it's horrid reputation. If anything it's a perfect case study of communist hubris with regards to the airline industry.
>No, they change their names and come right back the way that ValuJet/AirTran did.
Those are not airline makers.
>That doesn't count for shit. Every country has engineers, and every country has books. What matters is financial viability.
No, and this is the downfall of everyone that fucks around in the commercial airliner. You cannot buy a good safety record. You cannot buy your way into this market.

It's not if it's as efficient, which it theoretically is. Regardless it's just one example.

I think that this has nothing to do with chips as a strategic commodity, China already has advanced chip manufacturing capacities at home. Their domestic microchip production is just one process-node behind the most advanced fabs in the world.

There is a factory in mainland China that makes 7nm Chips that belongs to SMIC.

Unrelated to microchips, Taiwan is part of China. Most of the world (including the US) officially recognizes the one China policy that makes Taiwan an autonomous province of China (only 13 countries out of 195 don't recognize it).

The US is trying to get Taiwan to secede from China, but that will fail, because China can enforce a naval blockade against Taiwan and force them to redirect their entire international trade through ports in mainland China. The US NAVY is not strong enough to compete against the Chinese NAVY in the south China sea and the parts of the pacific Ocean around China and will not be able to break the blockade. If the US manages to get regime change in Taiwan, that will cause a split in Taiwan where parts of the Taiwanese government and military will side with mainland China. The US side of the split will get cut off from US supplies and will be destroyed in a war of attrition. Taiwan will loose it's political, economic and military autonomy and become a regular Chinese province.

I didn't. What I said was:
<Maybe back when stewardesses wore miniskirts, and fliers all received complementary meals and scotch.
>I think it's important to remember the McDonald Douglas is no longer an airline maker though.
The 737 crushing the DC-9 (despite passenger preference for the latter) had a lot more to do with that than McDonnell-Douglas' safety record, although the DC-10's incidents didn't help. The MD-11 losing out to the 777 and the A340 finally killed it.
>Production was stopped in 1960 because of it's horrid reputation.
Aeroflot flew the Tu-104 until 1979. They only began replacing it when the Tu-134 and the Il-62 were in full production.
>All wrong, the science and engineering are established, all that is stopping wider adoption is the reluctance of market leaders to seriously invest in industrializing it.
No, I am entirely correct, and you are completely wrong. Airliners don't need a bunch of theoretical bullshit. They need to be lighter, more eceonomical, and a cheap, viable alternative to the aging fleets that low-cost carriers are currently flying. These are commodities that need to be sold. That is absolutely all the matters. Even in the Concord's hayday, supersonic aircraft were barely economically viable, and they only ever served a tiny niche of business travelers who were crossing the Atlantic (where else would it be alright to drop sonic booms?).
>It is growing, just not very much.
Slow growth is a slow death for capital.
>That Boeing is more than capable of building a brand new replacement for the Max.
Top kek! Boeing has been trying to pull off a replacement for the 737 since before they settled on just stretching it out into the 700, 800, and 900 series. Furthermore, Boeing hasn't been able to produce jack shit of any value since it tried to break the engineers' union in Everett by fully outsourcing the 787.

>Politico Europe’s Playbook newsletter reported that after Novak’s tweet, officials sent out a full transcript of the interview.
