So in Brussels (the capital-city of Belgium and the seat of many EU institutions) someone gunned down 2 people and injured a third. It was declared a terror attack, all the people had to go home and all the leisure activities got canceled. Many Politicians had to give speeches and so on.

If the media had more or less ignored this event, the damage would have been 2 dead, 1 injured and a few traumatized witnesses. However that shit got broadcasted everywhere and as a result probably millions of people got terrorized, subjected to fear. They ceased all their activities without a rational reason. Civilization ground to a halt by a small force that should'n've been able to do that.

Terrorism of this style only works because it can spread fear through the media. If the media did not do this, terrorism as a tactic would cease working.

Why is the media sending danger-warnings to people that aren't in any danger ?
Why are officials signalling "be afraid" to people who from a rational point of view don't have any reason to be?
Why isn't this treated like any other violent crime case, something the news mentions as part of a list of local happenings in between the messages about road-congestion and the weather-predictions ?
Why can one gunman interrupt a city of over 2 million people, when it should interrupt at most a city-block of a few hundred to a thousand?

Why isn't the major reaction to this an expression of defiant stoic indifference (even if it's not entirely genuinely felt) where everybody carries on as if nothing had happened. Terror attacks would cease if they can't elicit a reaction of fear and terror.

What would it take to change this ?

Why would the US finance ISIS? States of emergency enable unlimited right of the state and suspension of the rights of the workers. A big problem for the US ruling class is that they don't get unlimited right to do whatever the fuck they want since many armed Americans would mobilize in defense of the constitution. This means that the media must manufacture consent for the relinquishing of arms through the encouragement of school shootings. Dems literally want to turn the US into a UK shithole where you get arrested for being mean to the Queen.

I'll just add, something that people have been sleeping on is the increasing number of blacks who have come out in support for 2a. They argue that police cannot be trusted in black communities. Capitalist police of course, can't be trusted anywhere but it will be interesting to see how this resolves as it places direct pressure on state ideology regarding the type of BLM shit they have been pushing. I think that they will have to put quite a few anti-gun blacks on TV before it will be fixed for them. Corporate media will probably get the memo soon to cover these people like how they cover black Republicans. But for now, retards like vice and nyt still run this shit.

I understand the element of political opportunism that seeks to exploit crisis, but a large part of the state apparatus doesn't gain anything from that, they loose stability and continuity, if sentiments of terror and fear reverberates through society. Why isn't that part of the state trying to counteract and promote something like defiant stoic indifference, do they not realize their interests ?

My guess would be that the Ukraine-war flooded Europe with black-market weapons. You know corrupt people in the Ukrainian war-machine selling off weapons for personal gain. That's probably where this AK came from.

Maybe Lord of War can get a sequel

Kermit the frog caused 9/11. In the 2002 TV film "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie", there's a part where an angel shows Kermit an alternate reality where he was never born. For whatever reason, the editors didn't really think about it, and continued to use footage with the twin towers still standing for this scene, however they aren't there in his original universe. Therefore, something that Kermit did in his life, did in fact cause 9/11 in Muppet lore.

History never ended to begin with. History does not end. History always moves forward. The idea of the "end of history" was the ideology embedded in the United States due to being under the omnipresent eye of their capitalist overlords during the fall of the Soviet union. The United States deluded itself into believing that history was over what 9/11 was was an awakening from this phantasmagoria. 9/11 was the tipping point for the United States, imo from the heights of the 90s consumer culture to where we are today.

Okay guys let's get this thread back on topic.
Is Trump's installment and normalization of work from home the greatest triumph in labor in the past 50 years.
I seriously can't think of something else that's helped more workers since then.
How'd this genius know this is what would happen, how did this man, who spent his entire life gaining the trust of the real estate booj, pull off one of the greatest backstabbing in history. How'd he maintain his cover for nearly his whole life?

Assad gets credit for preventing Syria having the same fate as Libya. But Syria suffered enormous damage, both the population and it's material base. Obviously something went wrong.

>Gender theory

They're not granting people an opt out, genderdenties are mandatory, it's a secular religion trying to burn the heathens. We need enlightenment reloaded. The first enlightenment had a bug, it erroneously assumed that all religions are based on supernatural believes, we have to fix it and account for secular religions.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protests_of_1968

Was reading about the Jap student protests and the Yugo protests, and found out that they happened at the same time.

Jap, Yugo, French, and Czechoslovak protests all saw an appearance of the student's councils.

Jap, Yugo, and French were marxist inspired and anti-capitalist, while Czechoslovak were anti-soviet. Both were anti-establishment.

If we follow my theory that the Soviet system was another industrial class-based mode of production, then we can see mass protests against two different types of class society SIMULTANEOUSLY, that shared common characteristics.

So WTF happened in that year?

>And their relationship could be also seen as a relationship of exploitation by the city (workers) of the countryside (peasants). Their conflict even had a clear economic manifestation (the phenomenon of the price scissors), that resulted in a subsequent class war with terror against the class enemy kek. This theory also explains why after collectivization exploitation of the peasants had characteristics of serfdom (peasants tied to the land and not allowed to leave, obligation to work on the lord's lands a certain amount of days, etc).

acknowledge that there's an arch-nationalist component within Ukraine's government, forget that Yanukovich's program had its own set of issues and contradictions. It's not like this conflict was solely about nationalist ideals conflicting with his policies.say that the Russian separatist movement in Donbass was entirely orchestrated by the KGB. Sure, that's one piece of the puzzle, but it's a vast oversimplification to put all the blame on that. Consistency in understanding these conflicts requires looking beyond
the roots of conflicts like this one run deep, involving historical, political, and socio-economic factors. To reduce it all to a single cause or entity is to miss the forest for the trees, my friend. So, while it's tempting to point fingers at one side or the other, let's remember that the reality is often much stranger and more intricate than we might imagine.

Ah, the audacious insinuation that the efficacy of Lakhta Tech Support could ever be tethered to the origins of its personnel! Such an assertion reveals a staggering lack of comprehension regarding the contemporary landscape of globalized expertise. One must not succumb to the fallacy of nationalistic reductionism, for it belies an intellectual shortcoming that impedes one's personal growth and understanding.

You see, the world is a tapestry of knowledge, interwoven with the brilliance of minds hailing from every latitude and longitude. It is a lamentable misjudgment to insinuate that the prowess of Lakhta's tech support is in any way contingent upon the ethnicity of its members. In truth, it is a disservice to one's own intellectual curiosity to propagate such fallacies. Knowledge and competence, my dear interlocutor, know no boundaries or borders.

Furthermore, let us not forget that the pursuit of excellence is a global endeavor. The notion that any one group or nation could monopolize proficiency in any field is an antiquated idea. In this era of connectivity and information exchange, wisdom flows ceaselessly across borders, transcending any parochial notions of superiority.

So, to belittle the capabilities of Lakhta Tech Support based on notions of nationality is not only misguided but an exercise in intellectual paucity. Let us all embrace the vastness of human potential and recognize that excellence knows no geographical bounds.

One must not, under any circumstance, succumb to the fallacy of nationalistic reductionism, for it belies an intellectual shortcoming that impedes one's personal growth and understanding.

The world, you see, is a vast and intricate tapestry of knowledge, woven together by the brilliance of minds hailing from every conceivable latitude and longitude.

In truth, it is a grievous disservice to one's own intellectual curiosity to propagate such fallacies. Knowledge and competence, my dear interlocutor, are bound by no borders, confined by no nation.

Furthermore, permit me to expound upon the matter at hand. Let us not, in our intellectual meanderings, forget that the pursuit of excellence is, without exception, a global endeavor. The antiquated notion that any single group or nation could monopolize proficiency in any given field has long since crumbled beneath the relentless tide of progress.

<Capitalism has already been superceded

Some sort of bureaucratic managerial mixed economy exists in all major developed economies today. It is the inevitable political development at this stage of history owing the the current level of the productive forces. The central economic impulse isn't the further development of the means of production in order to *produce commodities.* As it stands, only a fraction in the labor force is set to work in producing commodities. A larger percentage is involved either in the realization of value or the social maintenance of power - that it's to say, and increasing proportion of the population is as divorced as ever from production and increasingly devoted to employment in the tumorous and parasitic outgrowths of the economy. Likewise, an ever increasing proportion of the economic surplus is devoted toward the expansion of the infrastructure of services and, more importantly, control. An increasing social investment occurs in fields like marketing and sales, security (ranging from web3 doorbell cameras to rent-a-cops to state militaries), media in it's wide variety of forms, psychological and sociological research, and 'governance' on both a local and international scale. In Gramscian terms, this is an explosion in the size and importance of the state vis-a-vis and over the forces of the productive economy. That is to say, the *capitalists* (which developed and began to supercede the lorded administers of feudalism during the 16-18th centuries) have themselves begun to be superceded by a growing, new, highly technological, secular, and 'scientific' administrator and managerial class.

The primary aim is always power. For a brief period in history, the private ownership of the means of production - to be a capitalist - was the best means to amass power. However, in the sort of post capitalist future that is emerging, those who control (but perhaps not directly 'own') large levers of the economy and structures of control form a sort of oligarchy that simple seeks - directly - to expand its control.

This impulse is increasingly turned inward and against all forms of life, up to and including increasingly levels of power against it's own citizenry, with more and more elements of daily life intertwined with technology, control, and economy.

As a phase in the mode of production, this is a sort of toothpaste that's not going back into the tube. But it doesnPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

an army of investigative reporters armed with typewriters (or perhaps more modern tools, but typewriters have that vintage charm) ready to take on the capitalist behemoth. They'll expose every capitalist conspiracy, unearth every hidden agenda, and, of course, wear stylish trench coats while doing so.

Now, the idea of strong protections and robust funding mechanisms for independent journalism is positively revolutionary. It's as if you're suggesting we build an impervious wall around truth, a wall so high that even the most agile of spin doctors can't scale it. We'll have fact-checkers armed with red pens and the unyielding resolve to correct any misinformation, regardless of the source.

And the notion of a thousand Wiki-Leaks clones? Oh, what a glorious thought! It's like creating a parallel universe where the truth flows like a never-ending river. But remember, with great leaks come great responsibility. Our news landscape would indeed be akin to the people's intelligence agency, but we must ensure our intelligence is used wisely and not for mere amusement.
