The rich class have no real effects on their power from all the panama papers leak other than just more mud being slug on their names

Why would they assassinate someone that only brought their dirty laundry out in the open? Did some stupid rich liberal order the hit, because they freaked out like they'll get arrested like in some journo movie

What's the marxist analysis for this assassination?

killing this Journalist wasn't a demonstration of power, it was a demonstration of impotence, it doesn't work as intimidation because leaking to journalists is not the only option, the alternative option is to give the list of the corrupted, to members of a very different section of the society that would do very ruthless things. If they kill a journalist after the leak happened they demonstrate a lack of power, because it's AFTER the leak. Retaliation for the purpose of intimidation only makes sense in a mafia structure. I don't know what the deal with Malta is, they used to be economically important during mercantilism, at some point they became a tourist spot, and now they do gambling and tax evasion. Does that lead to mafia problems ?

The other thing is, it is possible for all those corrupt fucks to be murdered, the only reason this doesn't happen is because capitalism doesn't work like feudalism where killing the king has the possibility to bring change for the better because the next king might be nicer. Even if the entire bourgeoisie were liquidated, it would just mean other capitalists will immediately fill the void and continue exactly as before, because capitalism is dominated by systemic pressures not individual attributes. The fact that people do not engage in a pointless Sisyphus murder spree does not mean that individual capitalists are untouchable or impervious to consequence. Capitalists are only protected because they are replaceable. From a systemic perspective a replaceable component doesn't stay dead, and that makes the cost of killing it tend towards the infinite. If they start acting like a blood-soaked mafia it will make sense to kill them because the many capitalists waiting in the wings to move up in the capitalist hierarchy, could promise to be peaceful and protect who ever is "cleaning out the mafia" after they gain power. This doesn't mean that capitalism is particularly peaceful, because capitalism has a lot of systemic violence, but it does clamp individual violence.

To circle back to the topic car bombs are a sign of amateur work or maybe a sign of lacking resources, and it seems very heavy handed, usually ruling class attacks on journalists are done as sophisticated slander campaigns that seek to undermine their credibility. By blowing her up they made her a martyr. So that's baffling to me as well, even a very simple minded strategy like game theory would tell you that disproportional response is irrationPost too long.

Labor aren't winning an election for the foreseeable future. Media in Austalia is pretty much an easy hidden "shy tory" +5 2pp polling for the Liberals when election day comes.
For me to say Labor are in contention for an election, they literally have to be polling 5 points above the Liberals come election day, and that is contention, not even a guaranteed win.

The Chinese diaspora more or less have been inducted to the nationalist and reactionary overtones (and undertones) which have been harboured since Chinese of various "classes" could migrate from China. In the Australian context, following the migrations from Qing Dynasty China and later KMT China they have subscribed, upheld and accentuated bourgeois culture and bourgeois nationalism (that is to say caste and feudal fashioned culture; in brief: the emperor, the imperial family, the courtiers, the mandarins/gentries and the rest. Also that the country is officially the property of the imperial family and bourgeois) in a post-French Revolution world as a parallel society. The parallel society can be innocent and in a post-French Revolution world (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity in summary) it was permitted and it served as a way to preserve their culture, language and customs as it formed their identity and sense of belonging. A part of the Chinese diaspora began to form small business owners, property owners and high income professions such as the doctors and lawyers. So the upper middle and upper income brackets in accordance to customs, culture and tradition became custodians of the Chinese as a whole and separate from the rest (middle income and lower) in terms of association and affiliation. They provided facilities available to all Chinese (perhaps the occasional graded services according to "packages" but essentials could be afforded by all) those included Chinese schools, halls, dancing and art classes, calligraphy etc. Those facilities and enclosures can be noticed in urban areas usually distinguished by Chinese styled arches (paifang or pailou). Naturally, those upper middle/upper income bracket people (and they identified strongly with it and in reference to their culture). Naturally, those people were celebrated in Qing and KMT China and some even had ties to the Qing and later the KMT. Maybe the KMT was favoured more by the Chinese diaspora as they learned and became accustomed to doing without the Emperor in the the sense that they could work, study, own property and start a business with relative ease in Australia and in a post-French Revolution world.

When the revolution happened in the Russian Empire it would have very made the KMT and gentries worrisome likewise with the Chinese diaspora in small business that would have opPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

So did Barry Washington Jr. deserved to be murdered by Ian Cranston after harassing and assaulting the couple?
Or was Ian just an angry jealous white man?
BLM is making a big deal and doing protests.

I'll start first with CNN's take and then I'll provide the video and the opposite side's take

https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/02/us/oregon-murder-barry-washington-jr/index.html
"According to CNN affiliate KTVZ, Hummel previously said that, prior to the shooting, Washington had complimented Cranston's girlfriend, but that there was "no allegation that anything Mr. Washington did was inappropriate."
"He complimented her in a respectful manner," Hummel said, per KTVZ. "She was fine back. She said, 'No, thank you. I'm flattered but I'm in a relationship."
However, Cranston was "not happy," Hummel said. "He said some words to Mr. Washington. Mr. Washington said some words back," Hummel said. "There was some pushing, some jostling, some punches thrown, but then it calmed down. It was not going to get out of hand. Then Mr. Cranston pulled a gun out of his waistband and shot and killed Mr. Washington."

Ok this isn't the right wingers' take, but it actually shows Ian Cranston's mugshot where he was attacked by Barry Washington Jr. and given two black eyes.

https://www.opb.org/article/2021/09/30/bend-shooting-suspect-charged-in-killing-of-barry-washington-jr/

"An attorney for Cranston accused the district attorney of deliberately distorting facts to inflame public opinion."

"Butler, Cranston’s girlfriend, released her own cellphone video of the fight to a local media outlet this week, reportedly with the blessing of Cranston’s defense attorney. The shaky footage shows just a few seconds of shoving between Washington and another person before the fatal gunshot cracks, and he falls back. The recording goes on for nearly a minute after Washington is on the ground. Butler appears to walk away and talk to bystanders. Cranston rendered aid and applied pressure to the wound, according to Hummel."

I watched pure ideology with at least a megazizek of added Malthusianism.

Is capitalism striving to create artificial scarcity to inflame artificial societal disharmony to keep the lower classes fighting each other instead of moving up to a socialist mode of production that can deal with all the new technology ?
>>

 No.452205

Yes. Malthusianism is essentially what capitalists and their ideologists especially have embraced after their “Keynesian revolution” failed. Because if you go the Keynesian route and you don’t have a global war that destroyed capital in war torn countries and you have a massive surplus because of that war, then you end up experiencing massive stagnation and inflation which ends up choking up the profits and so to maintain a higher rate of profit you end up cutting the Keynesian social spending. Keynes took two things for granted: first that his economics relied on an economy that always grew to maintain capitalism and so profits, and second that the balance of trade which is imports to exports would remain.

In the end Keynesian shit failed and the economists and ideologists of capital have taken the Malthusian route. Open class war and trying to put the problems of society on individuals. And also getting rid of people as much as possible.

>This is neither true nor relevant.
The capitalist class has demonstrably more power in terms of negotiating contracts or agreements for trade, because they are controlling most of the lawyers and most are in fact dictating how legal agreements are framed. The capitalist class also has more influence over the legislator that creates the legal frameworks for trade. You can't ignore the problem of leverage, by just declaring it non relevant, if you don't address the power imbalance between the capitalists class and the workers you forfeit this debate, because you loose your premise.

>Not true because what you call the "capitalist class" are only rich so long as they can provide affordable and desirable products to consumers.

The capitalist does not provide products, the workers are making the products. The biggest capitalist aren't even involved as manager in in production any more. This is too easy try a little harder.

>But the point you are avoiding is that regardless of who the participants are, everyone acts in their own best interest.

Obviously this is not the case the working class would gain more if they established proletarian states. The capitalist class was useful to move society out of feudalism. The capitalist mode of production made it possible to gain more energy from the environment, that utility has long since evaporated, consider how many lives or workers the capitalists have sacrificed for their games of imperial domination.

>So a free trade can only occur if both sides think they will be better off with the trade than without the trade. Therefor free trade benefits both sides.

No the capitalist class has seized state power to enforce trade that benefits them at the expense of the working class, just look at the concept of to big to fail finance capitalists.

>Even if you can somehow centralize all the expert knowledge and cognitive power of 8 billion humans, along with all their subjective preferences and emotions, into some super powerful futuristic AGI and plan the economy effectively.

You didn’t read one word of Marxism. The labor theory of value was proven by Adam Smith and followed by David Ricardo. Read poverty of philosophy about how Marx criticizes Proudhon’s vulgar understanding of the labor theory and takes labor value as the solution of socialist society instead of the premise of bourgeois production in as socially necessary labor time.
