how can doug lain be so based? Pisses off grifters and anarkiddies by just speaking straight up facts. It's hilarious how he got cancelled for defending Dave chapelle against the troons.

Considering that Batko is compromised (for ~2.5 years now) we have a vacuum in the "face of leftypol" department. This guy is our best candidate.

Oh you want to have both an electrical system and a mechanical chain-drive, i thought you wanted maximum design simplicity, that's why i left out the chain-drive. You know that you can peddle a generator to power a wheel-motor, you'll have some conversion losses but since you are substituting with battery power anyway that doesn't really matter.

>That would be fine for cruising on bare, dry asphalt, but on uneven terrain (think packed ice with patches of snow) I wonder how responsive such a thing would be.

Yeah an electrical-only system is rather elastic in it's responses, if you want to suddenly launch into an explosive sprint to the finish line in a cycling competition, this is no good, but in difficult terrain, this could be advantageous because you'll have smooth continuous power-delivery that helps with traction.

>Would the throttle be on the handles the way that a motorcycle's is?

No there's no throttle in this, you have a switch with multiple positions that represent different parallel and serial motor coil configs that change speed for a given voltage of the motor. You'll choose a switch position that basically represents a given speed, and then your e-bike will accelerate (limited only by the internal resistance of the battery) until it reaches the set speed. You'll realistically have between 3 to 6 speeds. If you don't want to accelerate you turn it off. This is functional but you sacrifice fine speed control for maximum design simplicity. You also have to choose an appropriate battery that won't burn out the motor.

>I would hate to have to use one of those expensive lithium batteries. It just doesn't seem very Soviet. Something dirt cheap that you can recharge with a crank and some water–that's Soviet as hell.

You don't need that many batteries for an e-bicycle, so it's not as cost-prohibitive as with cars to use lithium cells, but yeah a less resource constraint battery chemistry that's also light-weight enough, that's still missing.

>That wouldn't work with an alternator.

Yeah that's the case for all metal-air batteries, but they do store huge amounts of energy and are super cheap. You can have 200km or 125miles range per battery (aluminum-air version) and could gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Oh you want to have both an electrical system and a mechanical chain-drive, i thought you wanted maximum design simplicity, that's why i left out the chain-drive.
Yeah, I was thinking of using the electric motor to assist the rider rather than providing all the driving power itself. I have seen those around, and they seem useful if a bit heavy.
>Yeah an electrical-only system is rather elastic in it's responses, if you want to suddenly launch into an explosive sprint to the finish line in a cycling competition, this is no good, but in difficult terrain, this could be advantageous because you'll have smooth continuous power-delivery that helps with traction.
An interesting thought. I would have thought that being able to feel the road would be helpful in that regard, but you may have a point. Now I want to test the theory.
>You'll realistically have between 3 to 6 speeds.
Why not use a dial to adjust the voltage and control speed that way? I'm no electrician, so I don't know.
>You don't need that many batteries for an e-bicycle, so it's not as cost-prohibitive as with cars to use lithium cells, but yeah a less resource constraint battery chemistry that's also light-weight enough, that's still missing.
How much power do you think it would need with the operator pedaling and only using the electric motor as an assist for, say, cruising and for accellerating up-hill? Oh, and would attaching the alternator to the rear wheel allow for the bike to be charged while coasting down-hill?
>If there was ubiquitous infrastructure that stocked spare cells, this could work and it would be super convenient because instant refill.
Decades after the introduction of the first Tesla, electric cars still lack sufficient infrastructure. I would prefer to have something that is a bit more self-reliant.

Protests are fine but the french need to organize themselves further and start accomplishing things. What do years of yellow vest protests have to show for it?

Organizing a sustained general strike would be an enormous effort but probably effective. You need to actually have a plan to keep people at minimum fed while they aren't working so any kind of feel-good liberal attempts won't work here.

I haven't seen this behavior since the 8ch times, to be honest. And they don't do it on .ogre either (which makes me think the mods there are already compromised). In any case, it's on the record that 8ch had CIA posters. I think the feds are getting clever with their nazbol shilling – it's one of the ways communism can be defanged, idpol being the other, obv.

MAGA Communism is the future of American Communist movement because the MAGA movement itself is in many ways proto-communist. It is by far the largest and most powerful anti-establishment movement in the US. Anti-establishment democrats have immediately cucked out when elected (AOC and Bernie Sanders in particular), and while grifters like DeSantis try to appeal to the MAGA movement they cannot inspire the same populist energy that Donald Trump did when he promised to end foreign wars and bring back jobs. "Peace, Land, and Bread" if you will. Regardless of if Trump is a corrupt fuck or not seriously investigating the reasons behind why his movement has basically defined American politics since 2016 should be a priority of Communists.

MAGA Communism is necessary for reaching the masses - even those that don't like communism right now! Rejecting much of the American people for believing in MAGA results in making communism an edgy thought to be consumed by university students and other idiots.

"Out of the movement, into the masses."

The First Battle of the Next War: Wargaming a Chinese Invasion of Taiwan

>CSIS developed a wargame for a Chinese amphibious invasion of Taiwan and ran it 24 times. In most scenarios, the United States/Taiwan/Japan defeated a conventional amphibious invasion by China and maintained an autonomous Taiwan. However, this defense came at high cost. The United States and its allies lost dozens of ships, hundreds of aircraft, and tens of thousands of servicemembers. Taiwan saw its economy devastated. Further, the high losses damaged the U.S. global position for many years. China also lost heavily, and failure to occupy Taiwan might destabilize Chinese Communist Party rule. Victory is therefore not enough. The United States needs to strengthen deterrence immediately.

Details in pdf rel.

Reminder that Rand Institute had a similar docu ~4 years ago where they predicted that unless the USA starts a war against China by 2025, the war will be almost unwinnable.

Reminder of based Cockshott's analysis:

Saddam's government was already crumbling before the invasion. There was legitimate (if short sighted) support on the ground for toppling his rule. I think if the Americans have waited a few years more, they could have color "revolutioned" the shit out of the country. But this was in the era right before the burgers shifted to using color "revolutions," and the argument could be made that their shift was a direct result from the blowbacks from Iraq/Afghanistan. The thing is, the USA manufactured/had a casus belli and the establishment wasn't going to spoil such a splendid opportunity.

In any case, I'm recommending picrel movie. Putting aside its "muh democracy" fetish, I think it captures nicely does crucial weeks inside the US gov.

What are the political implications of practice being the criterion of determining truth?
>Marxists hold that man's social practice alone is the criterion of the truth of his knowledge of the external world. What actually happens is that man's knowledge is verified only when he achieves the anticipated results in the process of social practice (material production, class struggle or scientific experiment). If a man wants to succeed in his work, that is, to achieve the anticipated results, he must bring his ideas into correspondence with the laws of the objective external world; if they do not correspond, he will fail in his practice. After he fails, he draws his lessons, corrects his ideas to make them correspond to the laws of the external world, and can thus turn failure into success; this is what is meant by "failure is the mother of success" and "a fall into the pit, a gain in your wit". The dialectical-materialist theory of knowledge places practice in the primary position, holding that human knowledge can in no way be separated from practice and repudiating all the erroneous theories which deny the importance of practice or separate knowledge from practice. Thus Lenin said, "Practice is higher than (theoretical) knowledge, for it has not only the dignity of universality, but also of immediate actuality."

That countries are showing signs of shifting allegiances to the national bourgeoisie is part of an emerging political strategy in response to multipolarisation. For example, it won't be possible for the United States to both outsource the vast majority of production to China while also fighting them in a war.
Thankfully, as of right now the militaries of the United States and every other great power are pathetic. But it's likely this trend will change. We're already seeing renewed naval and nuclear arms races.
