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."

No dipshit, the laws are real because a police man will really kick your head in if you break them. That's why people follow the law, you're just arguing against a strawman and thinking you're an intellect because you're winning.

And here comes the red-painted liberal to inform us all of how dialectics work (spoiler: his imaginary bullshit is real).
>The law does make the violence possible
No it doesn't, no more than making a thing illegal makes that thing stop happening.
>Changing the laws demonstrably changes society
The change comes first. The law that justifies the change appears afterward.
>They don't, they enforce the booj's.
The bourgeoisie does not benefit from many of the routine extra-legal activities of the police. In fact, I imagine that the bourgeoisie would prefer a bit more social stability, but I riot now and again is the price one pays for employing a bunch of armed thugs with no effective oversight.
>You're not too smart are you?
Funny, I have the same impression of you–just another mid-wit using basic bitch dialectics to justify a worldview that doesn't match the reality that is right in front of him. You would no doubt be intellectually stimulated by touching grass.

>Property is 9/10ths of the law as they say, it's civil liberties that aren't enforced.
It is also property that does not always get enforced, notably personal property. The police never do anything to secure personal property claims, and I mean nothing. It doesn't matter whether you have a theif's face on video as he steals your shit, they will never lift one finger to either prosecute the criminal or to secure the return of your property. That isn't the only property claim that doesn't get enforced, though. Property may be nine-tenths of the law, but, just like every other law, it is selectively enforced.
>Imagine believing this.
The cops are not as class conscious as we give them credit for being. Certain individuals get treated better than others do. There is absolutely a difference in how proles tend to get treated as compared with petit-pigs, but class is far from the only thing that determines who gets treated in what way by the police.

Not when you're in the middle of a dialectic. It's like asking what came first, the chicken or the egg. It's relative to your own perspective. And it doesn't matter, as a materialist I've got chicken and eggs to deal with. Knowing which came first doesn't help at this point. You're a pseudo intellect that thinks he knows and has some kind of authority when in reality you know nothing of value.

These were both career criminals that had documented protection from both police and intelligence agencies. Both were only killed after public out cry for gross crimes (Pablo for bombing an airliner, Epstein for sex trafficking).
Epstein's story broke back in 2006 by the now defunct Gawker, and Pablo openly operated for years.
Now show me a story where a book was victimized by police randomly like proles are always subject to.
Using this as an example is like saying the state hates capitalism because it goes to war with capitalist countries so much.

Not everything is a dialectic, and "Law and Violence" is one of those things that is not a dialectic. This absurd notion that everything can be explained with dialectics is precisely what Stirner was mocking in The Ego and Its Own. Dialectics can be a useful tool for analyzing certain phenomena (actual dielectics as opposed to "law and violence"), but it does not describe everything, any more than the scientific method does.
>It's relative to your own perspective.
No, it's not. It's a perfectly verifiable question of which thing came before the other, and which thing still exists in the absence of the other.
>You're a pseudo intellect that thinks he knows and has some kind of authority when in reality you know nothing of value.
The difference between us is that you are trying to shove a square peg into a round hole so that it fits your a priori prejudices, while I am actually looking at a thing and seeing how it works.
>>463183
What? We are talking about the effect that extra-legal police violence has on bourgeois interests. Keep up.
>>463184
>These were both career criminals
Top lel! Do you have any idea how many of the bourgeoisie is "career criminals?" None of them abide by the law, and most of their fortunes are heavily supplimented with ill-gotten loot. Hell, just look at what happened to Epstein. He wasn't killed legally or out of any sense of justice. He was murdered so that he couldn't talk about allllll of the bourgeois bastards he got teenaged prostitutes for. Those supposed "non-career criminals" killed him.
>Pablo openly operated for years.
Yes! Exactly! Right out in the open and in plain view of law enforcement, just like so many other porkies do right now. Only some of them get SWAT teams at their doors. As in the case with Epstein and Escobar, the law justified the violence used against them, but that violence was not applied for legal reasons. The law is just an excuse for having done the violence.

You just talk past all my points like the pseud that you are.
If you had ever read Striner you'd know he actually uses following the law as an example.
In the example he uses someone in their home watching a thief being arrested.
If the person watching is happy that the thief is getting arrested because that will keep their own property safe, something that is materially true, that is not spooked. However if they think it's good that the thief is getting arrested because it's "good" and "keeping order" then that is spooked.
Stirner or anyone is not debating on whether laws or ideas are real. Yes I know laws written on a page cannot literally leap up and hurt me, for you to think that this is some kind of deep insight shows how dumb you are.

Dialectics can be a useful tool for analyzing certain phenomena (actual dielectics as opposed to "law and violence"), but it does not describe everything, any more than the scientific method does.
The Law determines how police met out violence. It it self is in a dialectic with the base and private property. You used to be able to not hire someone because they were black, now you cannot do that and if you do state violence will fall upon you.
>No, it's not. It's a perfectly verifiable question of which thing came before the other, and which thing still exists in the absence of the other.
No it is, because the dialectic is in motion.
>The difference between us is that you are trying to shove a square peg into a round hole so that it fits your a priori prejudices,
Lol, no it's you that's trying to abstract Marx into idealism. Unmoored from material reality you, like so many reactionaries, use it's authority to push backwards and bigoted politics.
>The difference between us is that you are trying to shove a square peg into a round hole so that it fits your a priori prejudices,
Answer the question, you said police violence hurts porky, even though we had nationwide riots over police violence and little changed.
How does police violence against proles hurt porky?
>It's all used the same way, and it all just means the same shit–people who say things that I don't like. Faggot.
I can tell you get called these names alot because you are dumb boor who thinks he's right all the time when you aren't even correct on the basics.
>Top lel! Do you have any idea how many of the bourgeoisie is "career criminals?"
This supports my case that the police do not in any real sense prosecute the booj even when they are committing staggering crimes.

No, it doesn't. Not at all. Police violence does not confine itself to acting on behalf of the law, nor does it occur in even most instances where the law prescribes it.
>You used to be able to not hire someone because they were black, now you cannot do that and if you do state violence will fall upon you.
Jesus, imagine actually believing that that's true. Employers can not hire someone for any reason that they want. They just can get into trouble if they boast after the fact that they did so for a particular reason.
>No it is, because the dialectic is in motion.
That phrase is meaningless the way you use it.
>backwards and bigoted politics.
What in the actual fuck are you even talking about? Now, the way that you make everyone who disagrees with you into a caricature of a particular enemy that you have in your head actually IS the function of a dialectic–the one that every identiarian is stuck in.
>Answer the question
I did. You're an idiot who can't comprehend what he reads.
>you said police violence hurts porky
I said that it can hurt individual porkies. I also said that it can, on occasion, work against bourgeois interests. "Porky" is not a real person, and he definitely isn't one monolithic cabal.
>I can tell you get called these names alot
Of course! It's impossible to talk about politics online without getting accused of being one caracature or anonther at any given time. They want that idealist simpletons like you use the term "reactionary" is exactly the same way that /pol/tards use the term "cuck." They are both empty, meaningless perjoratives. Inb4 well achshully, "reacionary" means blahblahblah
>This supports my case that the police do not in any real sense prosecute the booj even when they are committing staggering crimes.
Not always but sometimes, because the law is selectivelty enforced.
>This only happened after they became comically large and public liabilities.
Epstein and Escobar were not killed over any public outcry. "Public libilities" are big nothings. They get forgotten in the next news cycle.
>Do you really think those two men were the only porkies committing those crimes?

The mistake here is thinking that Trump himself ever cared about any of his populist slogans. Once he was actually in power, he filled his cabinet with corporate ghouls and cut taxes like any other Republican. His voters didn't care because the populism was always just a pretense and the real foundation of the entire MAGA movement was just owning libs. It was never about fighting for the working man in anything but rhetoric.
