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."

Does fact that 80% of impact/results stem from 20% of agents explain the inherent inequality of the world. Is this necessarily a bad thing, or is it just a thing that is devoid of value but should simply be accounted for?

It has been said often that there is no ethical consumption under Capitalism. This being said, there seem to be quite a lot of boycotts regardless. Are we to interpret each and all of these boycotts as being futile attempts to reconcile a lack of ethical consumption under Capitalism? Is there reason to participate in boycotts if all consumption under Capitalism is unethical anyway?

Is all consumption equally unethical?
Is there any meaningful difference between purchasing items like clothing or computers brand new vs. used?

I guess these are novice questions. I hope these aren't considered gauche.

Incredibly useless framework for this question.

Breaking a picket line wouldn't be solidarity, which is a shit move most of the time since it weakens every other worker action little by little - particularly if I'm screwing them over to buy something like an iphone or some other useless junk.

And do note I said most of the time, because in a hypothetical scenario of the picketers withholding food or water from their fellow proles instead of redistributing it, then they're gonna get it (and that's a good thing!)

Since we are throwing out Marxism anyway just to appease liberal sentiments we could go way further.

>fetish work

A subspecies of sex worker specializing in shitting or peeing on their customers. Very endangered worker.

>mafia work

A mafia worker is a proletarian who is exploited by the mafia boss. He is forced by The System to extract out money and/or gold teeth from his victims for protection, but his evil capitalist mafia boss takes almost all of that and pays back the poor mafia worker only a small part.

>politi-worker

The proletariat working in the US congress, UK parliament, etc. They produce new laws without which we couldn't live under capitalism. Sadly the politi-worker is not free and is controlled by the evil bourgeoisie.

>NGO work

The section of the proletariat that produces awareness about social injustices. Sadly, they are exploited by George Soros (their boss) who doesn't compensate them properly for all the awareness they created with their hard labor.

>NEET-proletariat

Productive labor in the marxist sense means producing a commodity with a persistent use-value, that is not for big bourgeois luxury consumption, or for war. Prostitution in the Marxist sense is unproductive labor.
Socialism would abolish prostitution but the police would persecute the Johns, not the prostitutes.

A mafia worker is just a lumpen-prole, or informal economy worker or a precariate.

You do bring up one point that I am curious about, though. How is Russia utilizing its air power? Could some of the Russian military's underperformance in the Ukraine be due to a lack of air supremacy? Do they not have that? Before the war, I honestly would have thought that the Russian military would have completely routed the Ukranian military within two weeks like the Americans and Brits did with the Iraqi military in 1991.

It's in Ellsberg's book. An early chapter argues that one of the major reasons for the disintegration of Westphalian norms towards warfare against civilians during WWII was because of the development of aerial bombing. Bombers couldn't hit simple shit like massive factories even during broad daylight for decades and this eventually lead to carpet bombing as a battle tactic.

flatpak is ok, it's got some security features and it's got some disk space saving features. The NIX package-manager is probably nicer tho.

I think that it's best that software should go into normal distro repositories once it reached a level of maturity where it really doesn't matter if you don't have the absolutely latest version.

Flatpak & company are good for those peaces of software where you have to have the newest version.

Tbf this is a sane reaction to the still ongoing fallout from pushing dynamic linking onto every major OS. Closed source software and software with library breakage between version (which is most of modern linux atm) should always receive portable distributions, so it can run regardless of the whims of your distro's package maintainers and hardly-avoidable bitrot.

So apparently Palemoon became the first browser to officially implemented JPEG XL a week ago. At the same time, Google just dropped it from Chromium despite supporting it behind a flag for months. What the hell is going on here? Is Google that desperate to push their video-codecs-as-image-formats that they're willing to sabotage a massive step forward for the web? JPEG XL is capable of replacing both original JPEG, PNG, and animated GIF/PNG all at once with a single file type that produces superior file sizes for all three categories of use cases. Neither WebP, HEIC, nor AVIF were ever able to make such a broad, sweeping improvement because they are geared more towards features important to video encoding than still images or lossless animation.

It seems like every few weeks these days I find something new to get mad about in the world of web development.

 No.11236

>>11235
I tried to find out the reason, and it is not clear why this happened, some people think it's a patent thing, although that has been disputed. It's unlikely that it is a technical reason. It seems more likely to be political. The googs has more control over the development of webp than jpegxl, so they push that.

But if you want a systemic analysis the googs can only do that because they dominate the browserspace.
If Firefox gained more popularity while supporting jpegxl, the googs would have to follow suit and support it too.

I don't know if that this is necessarily the death of the format. If the Mozilla foundation is clever they can accumulate support for those useful features that the googs is not implementing. While nobody will switch browsers or change their web-development pattern for this one format, it is likely that a big enough number of feature differentiations can make people change browsers again.

This is from a thread i started about thievery in general, mostly was about shoplifting wih other miscellaneous theft thrown in. had started it while ago, routinely posted additional resources to keep it alive but overall pretty much consider lainchan pretty dead at this point
https://lainchan.org/%CE%94/res/8273.html

So here is some actual substance copied/pasted from the thread, which ill probably split into a few posts

advice:
-have a trip to the store simply to case it and know what you want beforehand
-Keep store visits under 15 min
-Have your routes planned
-research police response times for your area
-look into company's turnover rates
-check the frequency of crimes in your selected area(more crime less time)

pt2


use google, specifically
- Maps, plan your route(more importantly escape route) and know the terrain around the area of your target(also useful in non-shoplifting thefts/other fukkery)
- "Popular times" feature(enter the address of the store) to gauge what days and what hours are their peak/busiest(more people means less focus)
- "See Photos"/"See Outside" of the store, will give lay of the land and clue into how well sorted the store is.
- use google/indeed/other reviews on the specific store, could be considered overkill but skim the reviews, gives insight into the employees/management there and how much of a potential problem they could be

What is the viability of the civil disobedience campaigns such as these garbage protests by the Young Lords in 1960s Harlem? Are there any successful more recent examples of such tactics, or have the police adapted to counter them?

<Xi Bros…. I don't feel so good

Over the past week or so, major protests have been escalating in China due to the Zero COVID policy. Apparently, Chinese visitors to the world cup were astonished that no one outside of China cares about the coof anymore, and shared their thoughts on WeChat, which has exacerbated existed discontent. Now, protestors in China are calling for the removal of Xi and the CCP. Maybe nothing immediate will come of it, but it does indicate that cracks in the social cohesion and unity in China are developing, and this may have longer term ramifications.

Chewing gum is an alternative to smoking. Some people chew it to get their nicotine fix. It's not 1980 anymore.

Vaping and hookas are not the same as smokgin especially vaping. Hook smoking is closer to smoking unfiltered cigars which are much WORSE for you than cigarettes.

I was a smoker for like 20 years m8.

While there are surely some people interested in Maoism on /leftypol/, the tendency has no noticeable presence here. From my observation Maoism has been gaining traction in socialist communities online recently. Though the ideology's influence is still relatively small, I'm optimistic that we're witnessing the earlier stages of Maoists winning leadership in the movements of the working class which will result in the reconstitution of Communist Parties guided by MLM. I started this thread to spur investigation and discussion amongst potential comrades.

Why Maoism? https://tjen-folket.no/index.php/en/2019/08/14/why-maoism-what-is-maoism/
"Maoism is developed in the first place by six great communist leaders: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Gonzalo."
"The rightist line led China back to capitalism, and dismantled the dictatorship of the proletariat into a fascist state. (…) But the cultural revolution and Mao Zedong Thought inspired millions of people all over the world, and led to the creation of a number of new communist parties on a revolutionary basis. They started people’s wars in Peru, India, the Philippines, Turkey, and Nepal."
"Gonzalo and the PCP maintain that Mao’s mass line, the line for the protracted people’s war and the line for the cultural revolution are the foremost examples of Maoism’s universal applicability, along with Maoism’s advancement of Marxism’s philosophy and economy."
"Gonzalo Thought is Maoism applied to the concrete conditions for revolution in Peru, but it is the universal conclusions in these thoughts that apply to the rest of the world."

The PPW specifically refers to the military strategy for a semi-feudal country, with nowhere near the level of communications a modern imperialist state has. In our world(let's be honest maybe like one of you doesn't live in an imperialist country), where legions of cops or soldiers can go to any location in the country in a matter of hours(especially if you live in burgerland), what is the new military strategy of the proletariat then?

This is not to say to discredit all of MLM and its thought, simply the idea that "PPW is universal", which generalizes the term beyond all meaning.

Dystopian Sci Fi is unrealistic, because these societal collapses are very short in duration. People will reconnect the industrial linkages and restore/repair most of what was lost. It's just that many people will die for no reason during the industrial interruption. The kind of people we see flourishing in Mad Max style movies are basically the same as warlords in imperial resource extraction colonies. I think it's ideology to think that these people could thrive without empire. It's an ideological conception for some kind of "natural state" of society.

> Apple Is Tracking You Even When Its Own Privacy Settings Say It’s Not, New Research Says
> An independent test suggests Apple collects data about you and your phone when its own settings promise to “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.”
> November 8, 2022

> For all of Apple’s talk about how private your iPhone is, the company vacuums up a lot of data about you. iPhones do have a privacy setting that is supposed to turn off that tracking. According to a new report by independent researchers, though, Apple collects extremely detailed information on you with its own apps even when you turn off tracking, an apparent direct contradiction of Apple’s own description of how the privacy protection works.


> The iPhone Analytics setting makes an explicit promise. Turn it off, and Apple says that it will “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.” However, Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj Bakry, two app developers and security researchers at the software company Mysk, took a look at the data collected by a number of Apple iPhone apps—the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, Books, and Stocks. They found the analytics control and other privacy settings had no obvious effect on Apple’s data collection—the tracking remained the same whether iPhone Analytics was switched on or off.

Don't get a prostitute. Probably the worst thing you could do, unless you want to be a trick.

Every little action is a vote for the sort of person you want to become. By getting a prostitute, you're telling your inner self, 'Im the type of guy who can only get laid if I pay for it.' Absolutely disasterous for your self image.

For your birthday, grab a (preferably non alcoholic) drink with a friend or acquaintance, if you have nothing else planned. As for getting laid easily, shooting for less than hot girls makes it easier. So does booze. But you want to use both as a stepping stone to better things without getting stuck using either as a long term crutch.

A while back, I wrote a summary of every chapter from Robert Greene's '48 Laws of Power.'

If you haven't read it, I'd highly recommend. These summaries don't do the book justice, since I've stripped away the historical anecdotes and quotes which really make the work come to life. However, I think there are still some interesting tidbits and lessons in these summaries, so I thought I'd share.

<11- LEARN TO KEEP PEOPLE DEPENDENT ON YOU

From Robert Greene:

>"Necessity rules the world. People rarely act unless compelled to. If you create no need for yourself, then you will be done away with at first opportunity."


>"No one will come to depend on you if they are already strong. If you are ambitious, it is much wiser to seek out weak rulers or masters with whom you can create a relationship of dependency. You become their strength, their intelligence, their spine. What power you hold! If they got rid of you the whole edifice would collapse."


>"Do not be one of the many who mistakenly believed that the ultimate form of power is independence. Power involves a relationship between people, you will always need others as allies, pawns, or even as weak masters who serves as your front. The completely independent man would live in a cabin in the woods– he would have the freedom to come and go as he pleased, but he would have no power. The best you can hope for is that others grow so dependent on you that you enjoy a kind of reverse independence. Their need for you frees you."


What utility do you have? In what way do you serve the interests of others? Why should people keep you in their life?

If you don't know, then you're in a perilous position.

People are inherently greedy. We rarely tolerate the company of others unless we believe they benefit us. Take this into account. Find ways to serve people's interests better than anyone else.

<12 - USE SELECTIVE HONESTY AND GENEROSITY TO DISARM YOUR OPPONENTS

From Robert Greene:

>"An act of kindness, generosity, or honesty is often the most powerful form of distraction because it disarms from others suspicions."


>"Learn to give before you take. It softens the ground, takes the bite out of a future request, or simply creates a distraction."


>"Honesty is one of the best ways to disarm the weary, but it is not the only one. Any kind of noble, apparently selfless act will serve. Perhaps the best such act, though, is one of generosity. Few people can resist a gift, even from the most hardened enemy. Which is why it is often the perfect way to disarm people. Although we often view other people's actions in the most cynical light, we rarely see the Machiavellian elements of a gift, which quite often hides ulterior motives. A gift is the perfect object in which to hide a deceptive move."


Even when we know someone ‘buttering us up' with compliments or a gift, it is a hard to resist letting our guards down. When someone acts with apparent (even superficial) generosity, we naturally feel as though they respect the effort entailed in fulfilling their upcoming request.

Use to learn this law to your favor.

At the start of an interview or oral examination however, deliver a compliment to those judging you.

<13 - WHEN ASKING FOR HELP, APPEAL TO PEOPLE'S SELF-INTEREST, NEVER TO THEIR MERCY OR GRATITUDE

From Robert Greene:

>"Uncover something in your request, or in your alliance with him, that will benefit him, and emphasize it out of all proportion."


>"In the end, most people are in fact pragmatic. They will rarely act against their own self-interest."


>"There is an art to asking for help, and art that depends on your ability to understand the person you are dealing with, and not to confuse your needs with theirs."


>"Do not be subtle: you have valuable knowledge to share, and you will fill his coffers with gold, you will make him live longer and happier. This is a language that all of us speak and understand."


>"Self-interest is the lever that will move people. Once you make them see how you can in some way meet their needs or advance their cause, the resistance to your request for help will magically fall away."


Everyone values different things, but they fall into a few categories. Security, excitement, significance, personal connection, growth, and contribution often top people's list of needs.

<14 - POSE AS A FRIEND, WORK AS A SPY

From Robert Greene

>"In polite social encounters, learn to probe. Ask indirect questions to get people to reveal their weaknesses and intentions. There is no occasion that is not an opportunity for artful spying."


>"A friendly front will let you secretly gather information on friends and enemies alike."


>"Emphasize friendly chatter, not valuable information. Your search for gems of information cannot be too obvious, or your probing questions will reveal more about yourself and your intentions than about the information you hope to find."


>"Another method of indirect spying is to test people, to lay little traps that make them reveal things about themselves…. By tempting people into certain acts, you learn about their loyalty, their honesty, and so on and this kind of knowledge is often the most valuable all: armed with it, you can predict their actions in the future."


Law 14 is another reason to be weary of friends. The intimate knowledge they accumulate can be used against you at any time.

Use this law to your advantage. Guard yourself from the danger posed by friends (true and false alike) while learning to use a friendly charm to glean information.

If, in your struggles with them, you stop halfway or even three-quarters of the way, out of mercy or hope of reconciliation, you will only make them more determined, more embittered, and they will someday take revenge. They may act friendly for the time being, but this is only because you have defeated them."


>"The solution is to have no mercy. Crush your enemies as totally as they would crush you."


>"The goal of total victory is an axiom of modern warfare…..The goal of power is to control your enemies completely to make them obey your will. You cannot afford to go halfway."


>"There will be people you cannot win over, who will remain your enemies no matter what. But whatever wounds you inflict on them, deliberately or not, do not take their hatred personally – just recognize that there is no possibility for a peace between you, especially as long as you stay in power."


In cases where you can not win enemies over, you must destroy them completely.

Do not be foolish enough to believe they will quietly accept a partial defeat. Given enough time, they will plot for revenge and seek out opportunities to undermine your power.

Why are top tier athletes subsidizing a bunch of mediocre, entitled dike feminists who regularly lose to high schoolers?

Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool
-Jitsi
-Jami

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

I think that has less to do with impracticability and more to do with the lack of knowledge revolving around how to set up and host a server.

it's more to do with how to secure a server + hosting and domain costs

there is no point in your own server if any scriptkiddie can pwn it

No, it's a complex setup that even system admins struggle with. You can blame it on being so web based but not everyone buys that excuse.

How dare I contradict your questionable source who couldn't have seen any of what he was talking about or who might have had any bias regarding the subject!
