Out of curiosity, how many mass shootings have there been in all of Western Europe over the weekend? Or this month? Or for the entire year, for that matter? Any guesses?

Lifestylism is a major problem in the American Left. It encourages purity spirals and alienates tentative supporters. Shitting and pissing because a leftist is economically successful feeds into the liberal argument that socialists are all just loser burnouts bitter at the world. Stop it.

>That's the result of the internet
No, that's the result of the retreat from socialism, starting from the second half of the 20th century.
>What do you mean detach from leftism? do you mean remove themselves from all the id-pol, moralizing and such.
Yes, not for moral reasons, but because all the moralization and idpol is inherently non-political.

I specifically mentioned resurrecting the political core of these movements. The failure you repeatedly mentioned are only failures because they have yet to be redeemed, because the leaders of these movements chose to merely retreat rather than learn from their failures and start again.

Communists have been trying to draw liberals in for decades and it has been a failure, liberals aren't going to switch over to the side of a small powerless ultra-minority, not even a small amount has. Liberals aren't going to give up control willingly and it'll take the collapse of the entire global capitalist economy to even give a small possibility of revolution, if the revolution comes liberals will be happily killing any pro-revolutionary's they see encroaching on their control.

They retreated because they failed over and over, the new generation of radical socialists tried to pick up where the last left off (often making the same mistakes) but they're still failed.
>I specifically mentioned resurrecting the political core of these movements. The failure you repeatedly mentioned are only failures because they have yet to be redeemed, because the leaders of these movements chose to merely retreat rather than learn from their failures and start again.
You would be resurrecting not a healthy body but a very rotten dead body. Even if it a new healthy mass movement gained traction it would quickly be another failure.

Your attitude is merely a more honest and explicit rendition of what every leftist today implicitly believes, and the source of their degeneration into pseudo-political moralizing and idpol.
Politics is a struggle for power. Socialism is the struggle for working class power. Contemporary leftists are not political, because they struggle for justice rather than power. Any movement that wishes to seize power must be political and vice-versa.
The organizing of workers into soviets was political. The Soviet Union would not have existed had the Bolsheviks merely chosen to encourage marching in the streets or writing pamphlets.
Of course they would have been unsuccessful if they refused to be political, and that's precisely what happened to the radical left once it became apparent that Soviet socialism was reaching its limits.

Russia is now undoubtedly winning the war, they have just liberated Udy, Vershyna and Pisky. Ukrainians are pinned down by artillery in trenches around Mykolaiv, praying for a Kherson counter-offensive that will never come.

This is the extent of the Ukrainian offensive by Kherson:

Putin’s fascists: the Russian state’s long history of cultivating homegrown neo-Nazis
>Many commentators have already debunked Russian President Vladimir Putin’s absurd claim to be waging war to “de-nazify” Ukraine.

>Some have pointed out the far right received only 2% of the vote in Ukraine’s 2019 parliamentary elections, far less than in most of Europe. Others have drawn attention to Ukraine’s Jewish president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the efforts of the Ukrainian state to protect minorities like Crimean Tatars and LGBTQ+ people, who are subject to brutal persecution in Russia.


>What has received less coverage is the Putin regime’s own record of collaboration with far-right extremists. Even as Russian diplomats condemned “fascists” in the Baltic states and Kremlin propagandists railed against imaginary “Ukronazis” in power in Kyiv, the Russian state was cultivating its own homegrown Nazis.

Was gonna make this thread on that other site but got smacked with an insane bullshit ban for hurting a janny's feelings, so let's see if we can get an interesting discussion here instead. Since the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Peace of Westphalia, Western warfare had been conducted through rules of engagement excluding the targeting of civilians. Sherman's March to the Sea was an early exception, and the Japanese civilian bombings in China in the early 1930s seemed to shock many Western powers at the time. However, it wasn't until World War II when the major powers threw this idea completely out the window and began targeting civilians in mass with the justification that long-range aerial bombardment can theoretically quickly bring a conflict to an end where previous conventional wars had been bogged down. Modern military power is such that most belligerents can reduce the others' cities to rubble or kill each others' populations indirectly through the targeting of infrastructure if they choose to.

Let's say the workers in a country have just won a revolution against their own capitalists and they now find themselves at war with other capitalist powers. Is there any room left for restraint among anti-capitalists when it comes to targeting noncombatants in the 21st century? Can or should anti-capitalists engage in "just" warfare when fighting for their existence?

Look at this:

subprime loans are begging to default

This is the same kind of predetory borrowing that we saw in the 2008 financial crisis and these people, forced to choose between debt and good in the face of infaltion, obviously are choosing food.

I think it's actually a good sign because the unemployment continues to slowly fall.
I think we're at an inflection point where the efficiency gains from IT, and illegal immigration are tapped out.
Businesses will continue to shrink but this will not be accompanied by an erosion of worker political power because there is no way to squeeze more value out of them.

Observers seem totally lost regarding the latest developments. They cannot put the pieces together and they jump from one place to another not knowing where to head or where to reach. Some observers are completely lost . One analyst today said that the US is unable to overcome Russia, and therefore it hopes to push Russia into China’s arms and after that it would be easy to deal with China because the US will deal with it the same way it dealt with the USSR, and will cause its collapse . This is close to delirium and is just to give you an idea about how people are looking at things . Certainly , the situation is complicated and what makes it more complicated is that no one is looking at facts or is giving a good reading of what is happening , and they are either linked to a certain agenda or starting from a wrong assumption . No one wants to understand the reality about the war on Ukraine and they want to see in it a righteous cause or a Russian self defense initiative while it is something totally different and is a conspiracy on Ukraine and on Russia and on the world security and stability , and will cause penury and food shortages. What we are witnessing is the next chapter after the Covid 19 conspiracy that has struck all societies and undermined them socially , financially and economically. But the tendency is to see in this a Russian cause at the time the NATO missiles were not even deployed and Ukraine is Not a NATO member and has difficulties joining the EU even . And this will lead to partitioning Ukraine and displacing the people and sanctioning Russia only to find new markets for the israeli gas in Europe . No one wants to investigate Putin’s past to find out who Putin is, for how to invest in someone who has starved his own people by stealing the money reaped from exchanging foods in return of minerals ? The media now is demonizing Putin – they say- but this not true because no one is casting a light on his past and this recent demonization is to remain for consumption and will never reveal who Putin is . As for the alignment USA+Gulf Countries+israel it was outshined by the spectacular Iran+Russia +Turkey alignment after Turkey has been promoting its relations with israel and the gulf countries and when Russia is still coordinating with israel the raids over Syria that have multiplied lately . And they say that this is a strategic alliance between the 3 and many are buying this, keeping in mind that withholding Turkey from annexing more SyriaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

It is a one world order that we have to deal with, or rather say disorder, and this order is set against the peoples themselves, any peoples, and has for purpose to submit peoples and defeat them. This is in short the conglomeration of world powers and their strategy . Their strategy is not against this or that state or this or that country, their strategy is against the people themselves and including their own people whom they subdue in various ways by confiscating their will and by manipulating them and granting them a fake freedom in which they have no say and through which they do the world powers bidding while thinking that they are acting freely .
Why we say this is because of the weapons that these countries are developing stealthily. and the kind of arms they keep in their arsenals which are weapons that target peoples and do harm to people, and all the world powers develop these weapons that cause great damage to peoples whether Europe or US or China or Russia, and they are all part of the world powers . Remember Hiroshima and Nagazaki . Who was targeted in these atomic bombs ? it is the people themselves and they are the ones who suffered and are still suffering . And beside the Japanese we have the Palestinians and the Vietnamese and the Iraqis and the Syrians and the Libyans and the Yemenis and the Lebanese and the Iranians and the Ukrainians and others, not to forget the Native Nations in the New world and the Irish people that were among the first victims . The kind of weapons these countries harbor explains the nature of the target which is none other than the people whom they seek to exterminate. .
Take a country like China- for example- that develops biological weapons and does biological researches that are funded by the USA after the USA has closed its biological labs at home due to the Anthrax threat and scandal , and has assigned China and other countries the continuation of the researches concerning biological weapons. This is how China resumed these researches in its labs in Wuhan from where Covid 19 originated, and we never learned how this pandemic spread , and we had to be satisfied with the bat and rat version, and all the scientists who raised specific questions were silenced . All this while the biological labs in Ukraine are being denounced nowadays by Russia after decades of complacency, and no one speaks about the Wuhan biological researches funded by US to develop biological weapons .
