>>475060>you would have to educate the masses with communist propaganda to prevent revisionism the same way neolibs brainwash their citizens into fighting for their own exploitation.
The increasing levels of soft-censorship like anti-social-canceling as well as traditional hard-censorship indicate that the neoliberal brainwashing methods have become less effective.
I think we have to think this over. The Neoliberals are attacking independent journalists. I think that's a ideological value judgement on their part, we ought not ignore it. If it doesn't work for them maybe we should lean into it. If we build our communist system with strong protections and robust funding mechanisms for independent journalism, we might get a complex sprawling self-generating ideological landscape, that is much less susceptible to outside subversion from media-power of outside capitalist-powers as well as internal subversion from cia color revolution shenanigans. Think about it, if we had a thousand wiki-leaks, we'd have a news landscape that would be like the people's intelligence agency. Again the neo-libs made an ideological value judgement when they jailed Assange. And they're telling us that they have nothing that could counter something like that.
The other part about neo-liberal ideology brainwashing is that most people probably don't believe it. Zizek (whose positions on geo-politics are admittedly terrible) none the less has valuable insights into ideology. He says that people don't need to believe in ideology for it to function, and that in fact it works better if they don't. He's very verbose in his explanations but he describes it as something like a common reference scheme, where it's enough if people can understand what is expected of them.
I think we do need the common reference scheme but we can dispense with all the extra cognitive clutter that is usually attached to it. We'll build a state apparatus that produces all the state services, but we'll just give people a user manual that describes how they can get stuff out of it. Basically people are going to try to game the system, regardless what the system is, so we might as well roll with it.
Despite all of this we should continue the Marxist theoretical work of advancing materialist thought, you do need a consistent world view to design working systems. There might be no need to indoctrinate the masses. You just have to make it very accessible so that it reaches all the people who would find it interesting. Generating an intellectual sphere probably isn't a problem, as long as it doesn't turn into an exclusive club and remains very open to the masses.
I think we should take inspiration from Cockshott's work, all his political and economic strategies involve setting up systems that have inherent desirable systemic tendencies.
