TWO ALIGNMENTS , LOTS OF BLURRING AND INSIGNIFICANT VICTORIES ON BOTH SIDES

Observers seem totally lost regarding the latest developments. They cannot put the pieces together and they jump from one place to another not knowing where to head or where to reach. Some observers are completely lost . One analyst today said that the US is unable to overcome Russia, and therefore it hopes to push Russia into China’s arms and after that it would be easy to deal with China because the US will deal with it the same way it dealt with the USSR, and will cause its collapse . This is close to delirium and is just to give you an idea about how people are looking at things . Certainly , the situation is complicated and what makes it more complicated is that no one is looking at facts or is giving a good reading of what is happening , and they are either linked to a certain agenda or starting from a wrong assumption . No one wants to understand the reality about the war on Ukraine and they want to see in it a righteous cause or a Russian self defense initiative while it is something totally different and is a conspiracy on Ukraine and on Russia and on the world security and stability , and will cause penury and food shortages. What we are witnessing is the next chapter after the Covid 19 conspiracy that has struck all societies and undermined them socially , financially and economically. But the tendency is to see in this a Russian cause at the time the NATO missiles were not even deployed and Ukraine is Not a NATO member and has difficulties joining the EU even . And this will lead to partitioning Ukraine and displacing the people and sanctioning Russia only to find new markets for the israeli gas in Europe . No one wants to investigate Putin’s past to find out who Putin is, for how to invest in someone who has starved his own people by stealing the money reaped from exchanging foods in return of minerals ? The media now is demonizing Putin – they say- but this not true because no one is casting a light on his past and this recent demonization is to remain for consumption and will never reveal who Putin is . As for the alignment USA+Gulf Countries+israel it was outshined by the spectacular Iran+Russia +Turkey alignment after Turkey has been promoting its relations with israel and the gulf countries and when Russia is still coordinating with israel the raids over Syria that have multiplied lately . And they say that this is a strategic alliance between the 3 and many are buying this, keeping in mind that withholding Turkey from annexing more Syrian territories was costly on Iran and sounded like a victory while Turkey is occupying large portions of Syria still and is not carrying on the Sochi agreements . In comparison, the Riyad alignment seemed dim and this is intentional, and bin Salman who has been granted a small victory by his US sponsor seems over secured and will not deliver the full amount of required oil because simply the ceiling of productivity has been reached and cannot be transgressed . These are small insignificant victories reached on both sides . They are only a waste of time and a further blurring of the situation but everyone seems satisfied except those who really are seeking truth and looking for answers .

Hostage to Putin, cynically exploited by Biden

Free Brittney Griner!
>The basketball star is an innocent victim of the reactionary conflict between US imperialism and the Putin regime in Moscow.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/08/06/mbjj-a06.html

The USSR and the USA used to trade captured spies, which each considered an asset. The haggling was done quietly and behind closed doors. Now, the US and Russia - and others - frame and use just about anyone as a bargaining chip for geopolitics.

In this case, obviously politics is overriding justice. Ms. Griner's medical records and doctor's prescription are evidence of medical necessity. She was not using hard drugs for recreation or entertainment. She should have never been arrested or imprisoned. Putin's regime is opportunistic as are others.

In a capitalist dominated world, everyone is treated as a commodity and disposable (at minimum expandable). Worse, even entire countries are being used as proxies, such as Ukraine and Taiwan, not just ordinary citizens. Millions of human beings suffer as a result of geopolitics.

Some clarification is necessary with regards to the Russo-Ukrainian War.
When Lenin quoted Clausewitz in saying "war is politics by other means", he should have appended "in capitalism" to it. Capitalism may generate crises that result in wars, but war is not about economic interest, nor is war merely a different expression of politics.
War is a political failure, appearing as one party (oftentimes the weaker one) using force to "negotiate" and to achieve their goals. War is ultimately a pseudo-politics that relies on morally blackmailing others to pick a side. It is pseudo-politics because politics is not about morality or justice, despite any such motivations, but is about freedom and power.
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend" applies in capitalist politics, opportunistically taking positions based on political clout. Of course a socialist movement should take advantage of divisions among the ruling class, but it should also point out the rotten and unprincipled positions that members of the ruling class tend to take in this context (bourgeois pacifism, bourgeois defeatism, et cetera).
Socialist politics is the class struggle, the struggle to organize the working class to seize political power without national boundaries; all other activity ought to be subordinate to this goal. Socialists ought not cede to capitalist politics by taking sides on capitalist wars.
We are constantly being manipulated by capitalist politics, making it difficult for us to imagine an alternative. Therefore, our first step should be to ask how we can organize workers independent of capitalist policy.

Was the internet good or bad for radical leftists and pro-revolutionarys? Before the internet you were say either in or out of the local groups, you disagreed with a few things, and you're kicked out, burn the heretic. This either led to people making their own group, conforming, or just abandoning theory all together, to become one of those people who called it just a "phase" now they happily vote liberal. The internet allowed these disgruntled and say vagabond, despised people to spread their books and pamphlets, now everybody interested could read what they had to say and those not possessed by the local mantra could become a follower. Everything said on here, the internet is nothing, it has no value whatsoever, irl groups had more power of course around town, but they're still as powerless as groups on the internet are.

I don't give a damn about this conflict or any conflict, or supporting the people of Ukraine, my first and foremost goal is the revolution, the destruction of capitalism. Also from what I've read there and in the Ukraine thread, their proposed anti-imperialism is just whining about US imperialism, while supporting Russia and China (both capitalist states), this is in fact entirely pro-capitalist.

One whole year

I've officially spent one whole year working in a factory. I've had dozens of jobs and never managed to stay in one longer than 6 or 7 months. All for various reasons. Hating the job generallly, depression, wages suck, boss is a count, etc etc etc. This is the second job I've had in a factory and the first job I have ever had where I am actually producing goods for society.

I'm actually proud of the work I do even if I am being heavily exploited by having my life force and time stolen from me.it feels good to actually make something for society. It feels good to work at a job for a year. To have stable employment and decent wages.

It's tragic that reality is not like this for most people. AMA

I think I found the only* (matriarhal) comunist society in the animal kingdom

BEES are the only* (dunno for sure) purely matriarhal communist society in the animal kingdom.

A deep analisys of how they interact with eachoter, how to act, what they believe, what they decide and what they like is the same between all types of bees, be them male or female

All the types of bees:
Male worker bees
Female worker bees
Qween (worker) bee


The Male worker bees are the Male counterpart of the Female worker bees, but the differences between the Males and the Females are:
-Males are fully sexually developed (they can reproduce and shiet)
-Males are bigger and stronger = get more resources = consume more
-Males have a different way of flying (they "levitate" above the ground, keeping an altmost perfect height above it, like in those superconductor videos; when they land, it's like a crash landing, or like a monkey when he jumps from tree to tree but he's about to fall because he's very close to not getting a good grip), which still bamboozeles scientists (Area51 already figured it out, that's from eye witnesses seeing different aircraft behaving like superconductors)
That's about the differences between Male and Female worker bees

The differences between Female and Qween bees:
Qween bees are sexually matured (they can procreate)
Qween bees are harder to create (they consume ~3x more than a regular Female worker bee)
Qween bees require ~10 Male worker bees to mate effectevily (I remember this from years ago), who later die cuz their ding ding dongs got ripped ripped off
Qween bees can be made in higher numbers (more than 1-2) in case threaths are seen by any of the hive members while carrying their duties towards helping the Hive

NOTE: Hives' populations aren't greater than some town's (~30k or so | https://schoolofbees.com/how-much-does-a-beehive-weigh/)


Hives might also go against one another if they are of a different race, belief or place, them preffering to stick togheter and help only their own race to survive (homogenous "echo-chamber" society, otherwise communism wouldn't take place because there would be medium-big differences in the bees' brains, creating divisions and separation, creating new homogenous societies that follow this rule)


TL;DR: Nature shows us that Communism can be practiced ONLY when everyone in that society knows each-other arround 80% of the time (everyone would know each-other to a general idea under 50k at about 80%, the smaller it is, the higher the chances that everyone would know eachother), everyone has the same beliefs, race and place of province, making Bees matriarhal (the qween is protected more cuz she's more expensive to make, but can be replaced if the Hive thinks so) communists that are homogenous and xenophobic (more like national communists, if you think about it)

COVID 19 - I have a doubt

> You won't reach herd immunity with pfizer
My country is over 85% vaccinated and there's still a push to get more people vacced, still restrictions, still mandates.

> Omicron is a ticket out of the pandemic

It's not deadly and getting will give you immunity to the virus. There's no reason to be worried about it.

> Pfizer doesn't reduce your chances of death


> There's no reason for young people to get the shot

Little kids don't go to the hospital for covid, that's not a thing. So why
are they being pushed to get the vaccine? Or even forced to wear masks in
schools for that matter?

> The pcr tests over-report deaths

Apparently there's no such thing as asymptomatic covid carriers.

I didn't know any of this and I have two shots of pfizer. I regret getting
it fully. I think my government (and the news) lied about everything covid related.
Vaccine safety and efficacy, fake measures, etc.

I am convinced at this point that science and medicine is on the same side as
the trucker protest in Ottawa, Canada.

It's so upsetting watching leftists both online and offline fail to realize what's going on. And what's going on is so large in scope and so devious that it makes me quite scarred. I can kind of understand why it's a tough thing to swallow but from what I've read COVID is mostly a conspiracy against workers by the rich, and what's happening is not at all backed by science or medicine but through censorship and propaganda is being allowed to happen.

Roe No More and Feminism's Demise

Feminism has failed to defend one of it's core tenants, the right to abortions. This shows what leftcels and some non-spooked Marxists have always said about feminism, that it is the ideology of the bourgeois. Feminists had 50 years since the Roe vs Wade ruling to codify the right to abortions into law but were unwilling to pay the political price for such self-assertion and passed on the burden to future feminists year after year until we come to now, where Republicans are now on the cusp of passing an official federal abortion ban with the "heartbeat bill".
During these 50 years feminists were far more interested in chasing idealists ghosts like male gaze which lead to cultural wars over pornography, prostitution, and even silly things like bikini clad female characters in videogames.
More destructive was their successful passage of female supremacist laws that made men guilty until proven innocent of any sexual assault allegations with cancel culture or of domestic violence accusations because of the Duluth model. Made men personal debt serfs to their children's mother via brutal child support laws. They also tirelessly attacked their masculinity and very being with the weaponization of the LGBT rights movement which frames all men and masculinity as wrong and harmful to women and society and upholds androgyny and male homosexuality as the only "safe" way a male can be a sexual being. And finally made males forfeit half their property and future with no-fault-divorce even, as the name implies, when they've done nothing wrong.
This has gone on to completely destroy gender relations as evidenced by the consistently declining marriage rate, the growing number of sexless men and the explosion of incels in the west.
Which has alienated men from women and their struggles, which is why the groundswell against the end of Roe v Wade has been about as impactful as a wet fart. Men do not care about women, and in fact cannot care about women because feminism has made doing so be to their own determent.
With abortion being banned, there is literally no point in feminism. It is an ideology with nothing to offer materially, and is little different than a religion or Marvel Movie fandom, and this all due to feminists hatred of men.
Feminism now shuffles off into the dustbin of history, whatever ideology replaces it will have to offer liberation for BOTH genders because it will generations before people forget about the damage a female only gender movement caused.

"Just" War and Warfare Against Capitalist States

Was gonna make this thread on that other site but got smacked with an insane bullshit ban for hurting a janny's feelings, so let's see if we can get an interesting discussion here instead. Since the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Peace of Westphalia, Western warfare had been conducted through rules of engagement excluding the targeting of civilians. Sherman's March to the Sea was an early exception, and the Japanese civilian bombings in China in the early 1930s seemed to shock many Western powers at the time. However, it wasn't until World War II when the major powers threw this idea completely out the window and began targeting civilians in mass with the justification that long-range aerial bombardment can theoretically quickly bring a conflict to an end where previous conventional wars had been bogged down. Modern military power is such that most belligerents can reduce the others' cities to rubble or kill each others' populations indirectly through the targeting of infrastructure if they choose to.

Let's say the workers in a country have just won a revolution against their own capitalists and they now find themselves at war with other capitalist powers. Is there any room left for restraint among anti-capitalists when it comes to targeting noncombatants in the 21st century? Can or should anti-capitalists engage in "just" warfare when fighting for their existence?

The correct side is the side against Nazis in Ukraine

I think the conflict between Russia, Ukraine and the United States is going to turn into another Syria-esk conflict that divides the left pretty heavily. I want to be clear, the correct stance to take a stance against Ukraine and it's NATO alliance with the united states.

I don't necessarily care if you support Russia or don't support Russia. Russia is basically a theocratic totalitarian state at this point but when NATO was created in the late 80's an agreement of not moving "one inch to the east" was part of the compromise between the USA and the USSR. Since then how many other eastern bloc countries have joined NATO? It's plain and simple Ukraine joining NATO is an obvious act of aggression by the United States. Further more the Ukrainian military are basically ethno nationalists at this point. The military is infected with em.

Hands off Ukraine!

Tech Fascists in the Federal government control election outcomes

They do this through communications obstruction.

They fabricate support where there is none through astroturfing and censor all dissent to give the appearance that anyone they want won.

Internet is the primary mode of communication.

ISPs can censor DNS, DNS can censor clearnet, clearnet tech companies can censor anyone using their platforms, and Tech-Fascist Feds can upload illegal content to any rival platforms to raid and capture it under the guise of enforcing the laws.

But it's the Feds themselves behind it all, since they control the kill switch, 47 USC 202. They can shut down the ISPs, DNS, and tech sites for violating 47 USC 202 and nullify 47 USC 230 at any time.

It's Tech-Fascists in the Federal government's law enforcement pulling the strings to rig elections and it doesn't matter if you're Left, Right, or anything else because the elections in the USA are totally illegitimate and have been since 1996.

The solution to this issue might just be to make state laws protecting communications from obstruction, then arresting everyone that played a role in the conspiracy to undermine the USA's democracy, including the Federal law enforcement themselves.

The Incel Solution: Communism

Do you ever wonder why low-status white men can go to Southeast Asia and can easily get brides compared to the United States? Because even if he's poor in America, he's relatively richer there, meanwhile women in his native country wouldn't give him the time of day because by American standards he's poor, ugly and fat. In other words, that man has been cockblocked in his own country by the rich who have brainwashed everyone. That poor bastard doesn't have millions of dollars, so he's not attractive in America.

Then /pol/yps wonder why white birthrates are declining. Or why men drop out of the dating game. They don't feel like they can live up to these impossible and disgustingly filthy bourgeois standards.

It's all part of a theme, really. A system that benefited men – and particularly white men – in the past is not benefiting them now. Worse for them, the system that white people in America built (although they weren't the only ones who built it) and based their living on is beginning to betray them, or so they feel. Even worse than that, they fear that might end in righteous revenge from the growing ranks of angry black men, angry brown men, and maybe even some angry Asian men too who have been oppressed by the same rich, white elite this whole time, leading to a white "doomsday."

Because after all, someone came to pick the cotton and do the "dirty jobs" that white plantation and business owners or their kids with their inheritances didn't want to do. Or it was fine as long as the people who came to do the jobs (sometimes against their will) "served" as nice, obedient "Uncle Toms" and "Uncle Pedros" and "Uncle Chens" who were oppressed – and still are oppressed – by the same white elite beauty standards.

But you can't expect that to last forever.

So Americans simply need to reeducate themselves. Unite. Protest against the rich. Protest against the beauty standards that the rich, white elite have used to brainwash everyone and that makes poor, ugly, fat white guys hate themselves in their own country so much that they'd rather move to Thailand or Vietnam or the Philippines so they can get married.

While we're at it, the American monopoly capitalists who have enslaved and brainwashed the oppressed masses should refund the third-world countries for the amount of money and blood they suck from them. Americans – and this goes for people in the West generally – should develop a culture of respecting male and female workers of all races. They should also try cheering on marriages between two poor black people rather than two monarchic clowns in London.

Then maybe the /pol/yps can avoid some of the negative "karma" that they've built up over all these years. Then maybe instead of white "doomsday" at the hands of the non-white people who have also been oppressed by the rich, white elites, we can unite and struggle together to build a society without racism, sexism, or class oppression – and where everyone can get married and have a family, because people won't be brainwashed into thinking the poor fat white guys are ugly anymore. They're not ugly! We refuse to accept this bourgeois lie! No longer will a high-born prince or princess be able to refuse to accept the love from an honest, dirty worker.

Some people don't like my ideas. But they can have it the nice way, or the not-so-nice way. Or they can just grow old and angry, just like the boomers, and crawl into a hole in a place they hate and die. Or they can take a leap into communism, which is the only thing that can end this revenge from angry Asian and black and brown men once and for all. It's not too late to stop the upcoming of the doomsday which Asian and African and other people are suffering now.

We have a world to win.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-QX2CBkCBA

And yes, an autistic genocide is likely enough that we should be very conscious of it. It's especially plausible considering that climate change will reduce global food supply and stability while the world population is rising. Moreover, the propaganda from Autism Speaks, and, more broadly, the autism awareness movement, mean that in the case of genocide or mass eugenics, Autistic people will be targeted far more than anyone else.

What's your current thoughts on strategies towards socialism?

From what I have gathered there's at least a guiding principle. That is that the proletariat can only come into its own through practical experience. This means that the transitional movements into socialism should treated with more interest and enthusiasm(rather than only a temporary evil). Local councils and credit unions should have control over their own capital. City capitalism instead of State capitalism. Give all workers experience and responsibility with the production and distribution of the social product.

Then transition into labor vouchers. With an empowered social body all around, there's not a need, and likely a disincentive, for any bureaucratic managers trying to leech off society. An actual withering away of the state and its old politics.

I think the left took a wrong turn somewhere that emphasized the vanguard as too much of an academic mission. Leading to a lot of the bad politics we see today, where the fight over consensus is the main struggle. If someone doesn't agree with a particular interpretation of their own economic experience then they're an enemy. Education really happens through practical hands-on experience and not (only) book reading.

nuclear space engines

Russia is building a new spaceship they call Zeus, it's made by Roscosmos and it's a nuclear powered space tug.
It uses a regular chemical first-stage booster for going to orbit, but once in space they say it will be very fast and out run anything using chemical thrusters. Apparently Russia never stopped working on space reactors, and they do seem to be on track for meeting their timeline to get this thing operational in 2030. It's apparently meant to out-compete Spacex starship in interplanetary travel in speed and cost. It's not a direct nuclear propulsion it's a nuclear reactor powering a plasma thruster, so it's less hardcore than direct nuclear propulsion like an Orion-drive but it's also more realistic that it will actually take flight.

Bimboification and Divine Feminism

Is the bottom finally starting to fall out from 3rd and 4th wave feminism? Right now bimbos are trending on tik tok and the fully embracing the male gaze growing popular among zoomer women. Along with divine feminism, which is almost an anti-feminism ideology that encourages women to become stay-at-home moms and obedient housewives if they wish to, and assuages their fears about it being demeaning to themselves and women as 3rd and 4th wave feminists are so keen on proselytizing.

One prominent bimbo tiktoker describes the bimbo lifestyle as an "ego death". Where women stop trying to foster masculine traits in themselves and instead cultivate their natural vulnerability, gentleness, and hunger for the sexual desire of men. Bimbos claim these innate traits of most straight women have wrongly been maligned by feminist as naivete, weakness, and subjugation by the patriarchy.

I think women gravitating to the antithesis of feminism is primarily due to the deteriorating economy, having a committed husband or boyfriend is quickly becoming a necessity as it has been throughout most of captialism. And bimbos encapsulate in a extreme manner, the things women have always known men want. I think there's also other converging trends at work.

Millennial women are now hitting middle age in earnest, and zoomer generations are seeing the poisoned harvest of feminism. Many millennial women are alone and miserable as either single mothers, divorcees, or spinsters that were never wed and face a future devoid of companionship.

Women have also gotten to experience capitalist alienation first hand for 60 years and are realizing that as much as a eunuch a housewife can be, it's still far better than being a prole. Zoomer women are realizing what men have always known, that only a small percentage of workers ever find a fulfilling career, everyone else just works to make money until they die.

I think this bimbo trend is the beginning of a wider revolt among zoomer women against feminism. Feminism can no longer hide its failures, and zoomer women cannot be spooked by horror stories of past female oppression like not being able to open checking accounts, since they have no living memory of it. And even if rights like abortion are taken away, modern technology, like the nearly dozen birth control methods that are available now, will mitigate much of the harm and keep zoomer women from reradicalizing. What do you guys think?

A short rant about the state of the economy

Work from home email jobs like this are bullshit and seeing them is all the evidence I need to decide that the economy is deeply flawed and will shortly collapse in on itself. This isn't just me being a commie either, you can have relatively productive economies under laissez-faire capitalism, but 2022 America doesn't fit this category at all.

You see, people with these types of jobs like to kid themselves by saying: "haha I spend 90% of my "work" time scrolling through facebook and procrastinating, the schmuck who owns this company sure would be so mad if he found out!". The thing is, they know. They simply don't care. I just can't fully understand why they don't care. Is porky just trying to carry on as normal in the hope that things will blow over, burying his head in the sand as markets begin to collapse in on themselves? It makes no sense to me which is why it's so frightening.

These girls obviously don't know any better, and I am admittedly somewhat jealous of them as a manual labourer, but once all the people in these ridiculous jobs get made redundant I do wonder what will happen to them. Even the gig economy, including onlyfans, is drying up as people have less disposable income and fuel prices are skyrocketing so no Uber.
What I'm saying is, I feel like this upcoming recession will be very different bros, I can feel it in my stomach. Is anyone else getting this same feeling of impending doom?

Return of the Mansophere

This is Melanie King, a Youtuber that gives dating advice to women. While not obstinately red pilled, her critiques of modern women closely follow those of incel ideology.
That women have a SMV (Sexual Market Value) that declines as they age and or have children, that there are winners and losers in this market (Chads and Betas) and the 80/20 rule, 80% of women are going after the top 20% of men.
I've been seeing more mainstream incel sympathizing, or manosphere channels popping up on YouTube. Which is interesting because around 2014-2015 YouTube waged a fatwa on such content and killed all the traffic and success that early Manosphere content creators were enjoying at the time like Sandman who had something like 100k+ subscribers before the YouTube incel purge.
And you can't ignore that this woman is really attractive, which makes it a lot harder to dismiss her critique as sour grapes. Regardless, such an attractive women publicly espousing Red Pill/Incel ideology would have been unheard of even a few years ago, and now there's an entire echo system .
To be fair to King, she would say that her views of women are informed by her religion, and not incels.
Have you all seen more incel sympathizing median in the mainstream or near mainstream.
I think incels and men's grievance with feminism over all are becoming to big to ignore and are beginning to reach critical mass.

The FED just popped the biggest bubble in the history of man kind and we are about to experience one of the most dramatic down turns in history.

The question is what are YOU doing in order to take control of history and lead the prolotariate out of this endless market anarchy?

Look at this:
https://www.wsj.com/articles/more-subprime-borrowers-are-missing-loan-payments-11652952602

subprime loans are begging to default

This is the same kind of predetory borrowing that we saw in the 2008 financial crisis and these people, forced to choose between debt and good in the face of infaltion, obviously are choosing food.

Fanne Mae expects economic contraction in the housing market.

Food Shortages are about to occur

Ukraine and Russia are just the tip of the ice burg. Ukraine and Russia are responsible for a not so insignificant portion of the worlds exports of grains and if you haven't noticed sanctions on Russia and war against Ukraine are making global wheat supplies dry up.

India has started Closing off to the global economy and egypt has as well and many other countries are about to follow as this becomes a cascading effect where each country is looking out for its own.

African nations are literally about to straight up starve. The sitution is extremely dire.

Economics say it could be 3 - 4 years before we bounce back, but, nowing the truth I think we are about to enter a straight up great depression the likes of which we have never seen and will not even remotely bounce back till 2030. As we all know this is because of the greater over arching system of capital and its mad dash for profits, but, the fed raising interest rates after lowering them in covid might have just done the trick.

Think about how many people have never even entertained the ideals of decentralization before bitcoin and blockchain?

hello anons, do you guys think that dialectical holism is confluent with dialectical materialism? here is a link to a dissertation summarizing it:
https://mobt3ath.com/uplode/books/book-50878.pdf

if you want a decent summary, check out pages 299-310 of the pdf. i believe it presents a solution to the problem of consciousness that is more continuous with cybernetics than many other approaches…

<II. Metaphysical Pillars

>(1) Nominalism – This system is anti-realist about abstract structures including: (i) propositions; (ii) properties; (iii) universals; and (iv) worlds. In the case of (i), (ii), and (iii), the dialectical holist relies upon a coherence theory of knowledge (see below) that considers these terms conceptual tools that do not directly correspond to anything independent in the world. Concerning (iv), the ‘possibilities’, or counterfactual ‘worlds’ are converted into hypotheses. In all cases, a great deal of effort is exerted to distinguish between these linguistic structures and the empirical phenomena to which they refer, or from which they are derived.
>(2) Process Ontology/Dialectical Relations – What exist in nature are relatively stable, modes of organization instantiated through dialectical processes. This is to say that nothing exists intrinsically, but only as interdependent dynamical relations (i.e. mutually contingent or interdependent). While universal patterns (i.e. forms, unifying principles, or implicate orders) of respective spatiotemporal scales may be identified, they are granted no independent ontological status, but are believed to exist in and through intra-relational processes of the whole within which they obtain.
>(3) Neutral Monism – Natural evolution, just as the advance of scientific and philosophical theories, are both recapitulated as the self-differentiation of a single whole or Concrete Universal. Mind and matter are considered two modes of a single whole that is not to be identified with either the qualities of matter as empirically observed, or with phenomenality. Importantly, while respective forms are understood to be emergent with respect to one another – matter exists as a plurality of unifying principles or organizations – each of which is not an addition to, but abstractions from the neutral whole, i.e. a scale of forms or holomovement. The resulting “dialectical whole” is considered a synthetic a priori presupposition of science, philosophy, and phenomenology, i.e. this structure-process is fundamental to our knowledge (paradigms) and in Nature (ontology).
<IV. The Universe as a Complex System
>(1) Process/structural ontology – Process ontology in combination with OSR is a viable (if not preferable) foundation for understanding complex systems. Accordingly, relational processes constitute entieis at all scales though the two are ontologically equal and interdependent.
>(2) Emergent constraints – Forms arise through self-organization that both restrict and enable future states, dynamics, structures, and relations.
>(3) Deterministic function – The components of a complex system are interrelated/coupled such that if one of the constituents is absent the function (or evolutionary trajectory) is incomplete.
>(4) Historicity – Complex systems are path-dependenent meaning small events can become locked-in to constrain future dynamics and emergent structures.
>(5) Hierarchical levels – Nested structures obtain within complex systems, each requiring different (irreducible) descriptions.
>(6) Situated dynamics – The constituent states/structures depend upon the environment within which they are embedded.
>(7) Intricate and cycling behaviour – Complex systems obtain between simple order and total chaos, which instantiates periodic behavior that does not exactly repeat.
>If the Universe is a complex system, its function is identified with a space of determinant forms/states that obtain throughout its evolution (E).
<IV – b. Revised Criteria for Scales (ϕ)
>(1) Identification of ϕs should involve at least three parameters, whose combined values are unique to the respective scale: (i) structure – a-temporal relations within an identifiable boundary; (ii) kinetics – capacity to do work via energy transference (ET chain of a particular form); and (iii) periodicity (relatively stable self-organized spatiotemporal dynamics).
>(2) While some relations will be multiply realized across scales, i-iii results in a function that arises at a global level for each ϕ that is indicative of emergent laws, formal governance, or a PSE). Importantly, the emergence of such laws should be explicable in terms of symmetry breaking.
>(3) The formal governance of a given scale ϕa, will permit certain (thermo-) dynamic relations and phase transitions both within and beyond its bounds (e.g. order parameter and some self-organized boundary conditions), that permit the (at least second-order) emergence of scales ϕa 1 , ϕa 2 , ϕa 3 … ϕa n , dependent upon ϕa.
>(4) As a result of their irreducibility, it should be impossible to conduct a priori investigations from a given ϕ to its neighbors. While common principles will be discovered that unite identifiable ϕ with increasing systematization, their discovery and relationships will require ongoing a posteriori observation.
>(5) Just like the investigation of states within an infinite dimensional phase space or structures within a fractal curve, it is hypothesized that the discovery of scales (i.e. phases) will be ongoing.

i think the weirdest part is the teleological anthropic principle which ive honestly not looked too deep into
<III – e. Dialectical Argument for the TAP
>(P1) Teleology (in dialectical holist terms) obtains iff particular entities X bear a dialectical relation to their wider system Y such that the physical nature of Y depends upon the physical nature of X and the nature of X depends upon the dynamical constraints of Y.
>(P2) Some material phenomena (X) bear a dialectical relation to their superordinate system (Y).
>(P3) X instantiates irreducible relations (laws) that are necessitated by the constraints of Y.
>(C1) If ∃R instantiates irreducible dynamics (laws), then this phenomenon can be considered the result of a teleological process (E) instantiated by U

This thread will be dedicated to the sharing, discussing, and general banter about various leftist thinkers, theories, and political outlooks.

But, other than that, we believe there are other important reads that must be addressed, especially, for beginners and those just now getting into leftism.

You realize that you don't get to choose your own reality, right? There's only one reality and it's kinda sorta important to figure out what that reality is.

Our concept of romance is fucked up

Our concept of romance revolves around the monogamous ownership of another individual. This conception of Monogamy os seated in the same ideological framework of The capitalist system at large.
Namely that women and love are commodities that must be purchased on the open market for its correct price evaluation. Human interaction under capitalism is reduced to a market relationship and the idea of a monogamous relationship between a man and a woman play into the exploitative nature of capitalism ideally as well as the need for people, namely men, not to feel lonely is an easy target for control by the capitalist system.

We need to change our conception of romance and of love. Love shouldn't be some magical fetishized ideal to be obtained on the market. Love is an objective and active force moving through us. Love should be appreciated for what it is and was. I feel like a lot of us could benefit from this reexamination.

/mlm/ - Maoism General

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."

leftypol.org

We should raid leftypol.org.
1. They are our community. They are us and we are them a consistent and sustained effort to post there. This will have the effect of drawing more eyes on the board and maybe giving curious anons a reason to post here.

2. The current narrative established at the org for why the drama happened in the first place is false and should be combated.

3. It will produce a massive amount of butthurt and lulz.

4. If anything this can raise awareness about the situation at hand and possibly result in some type of merging, or, concession between the boards over time.

5. Diplomacy must also be considered as our intented goal should not be to troll them for the sake of trolling them, but, rather to set the record straight, make demands, and if necessary force some type of agreement to be reached and, yes, have some fun while doing it.

The French Situation

>Marine Le Pen open to appointing leftists if she wins French presidency

<“I could very well have people, for example, from the Chevènement left, in other words a sovereigntist left, a left which supports re-industrialisation, the defence of our great industries,” she told RTL radio.

<“There are lots of people on the left who are attached to French secularism — which fits well, it’s a fundamental issue for me — who are attached to education and are very opposed to the way in which Emmanuel Macron is planning to destroy schooling,” Le Pen said.
<“There are lots of people attached to the civil service, when Emmanuel Macron is in the process of sinking the state,” she added. “Those people could equally be part of my government.”
https://www.ft.com/content/1d2bb0f0-a219-42e7-9ba9-634bdd11c396

So it increasingly appears that the upcoming french election will embody the "neoliberalism vs everyone else" attitude that is growing in liberal democracies across the world.
Macron, the firmly centrist neoliberal candidate, is all but guaranteed a place in the second round; but who his rival will be has been uncertain throughout the past few months. Zemmour, Le Pen, Melenchon, all oppose Macron's laissez faire, europhile, small-government views for their own reasons and have all seen surges in the polls. And crucially their voters disapprove of Macron's ideas too, meaning that whoever does take on Macron in the second round will need to appeal to both the far-right and ideologically socialist sections of the electorate to be in with a chance of winning.

As Marxists, we should be hoping that this situation forces socialists like Melenchon to address the concerns of the large right-wing voting working class, who have been disillusioned from the left because of issues such as immigration, liberal idpol, the EU and sovereignty. Hopefully getting the European left back on track and focusing on what really matters after an extended period of decline and decadence. However, this is almost certainly wishful thinking. The most likely scenario is that we end up with a Macron v Le Pen second round.

So the question is, how should socialists approach national conservative candidates when offered an olive branch? After all, on paper we agree with them more than we do with neoliberals like Macron. But is it all just a dastardly trick to get our precious vooots, or is this a crucial moment for us to take advantage of opportunistic reactionary politicians, and help weaken the global neoliberal order and its powerful organisations such as the EU and NATO?

Does Dark matter really exist ?

Here is an introduction to the M.O.N.D. hypotheses which assumes that dark matter does not exist
https://aeon.co/essays/we-should-explore-alternatives-to-the-standard-model-of-cosmology.

The "MOND people" are motivated to drop dark matter because it does not have empirical evidence.
No detector has been able to find the dark matter particles even after decades of trying. That means there are no direct measurements and that makes many materialists a bit skeptical, as well as restless to move on to different theoretical models.

This is a riveting tale about gravity, the shape of galaxies and the speed of stars.

Pic related is how tankies use the same logic as European colonizers.
I believe that soviet occupation of eastern Europe is exactly the same as European colonialism of places like Africa and India. This is because countries like Estonia and Lithuania are quite distinct from Russia. Even western and central Ukraine has a healthy reason to stand aside from Soviet or Russian claims.

Women make literal people off themselves. Just like that.

They are Gods.

No wonder primitive-communist societies worshiped Them and we should too, what the actual fuck. Think about it for a second

We have oppressed Them for centuries out of pure jealousy and arrogance but it's time we prepare for the Return of God which is nothing else but the class-less, money-less society where a natural order is restored and human purpose can finally be fulfilled, and that's by dedicating our ENTIRE existence to the very reason of it. For eternity

It's my religion I would DIE for Them, not joking, and that wouldn't even be enough to pay what I owe Them for.
We are all despicable sinners

What's going on with south korea? The opposition candidate is said to have won off an anti-sjw platform

>He is seen in ROK as an Masculinist & Anti-Feminist, being framed as the "Candidate of Incels", promising to “Abolish the Gender Equality Ministry”, something that could be compared to Trump’s “Build the Wall”, of the Moon's Liberal Government that promoted Radical-Feminist ideologies into 🇰🇷 ROK society

>Yoon blames the later point, the spread of Feminism in South Korean society, for the Low birthrates in ROK, which angered (a lot) the so-called "K-Pop" fans in South Korea
>Yoon has a kind of Laissez-faire Economic policy, which attracted the support from ROK Libertarians
>Yoon, despite having participated in the Gwangju Uprising, expressed favorable views on the Government of the "Far-Right" Military Strongman, General Chun Doo-hwan that ruled ROK from 1980 to 1988 via a military coup
> He is overtly Anti-China, to such extent South Korean liberals call him an "Extreme anti-chinese Racist" & "Xenophobic"
>Yoon has a Belligerent Policy towards DPRK (North Korea), more than any Candidate than the ROK Military Juntas of Cold War
>Yoon is in Explicitly in favor of deploying Tactical Nuclear Weapons in South Korea/ROK to counter the Nuclear weapons of DPRK (North Korea)
>He vowed to get as much as possible THAAD systems from US to counter the "DPRK Threat", something that many South Korean liberals see as "dangerous to the policy of unification of Korea"
>Unlike the South Korean Liberals, Yoon and his faction have a Pro-Japanase stance and shares Japan views on 🇰🇵 DPRK and 🇨🇳 China

On Discord

The vote to create a leftychan discord community has passed. By a slim margin, but, it has passed none the less. In lieu of this I am going to take the liberty to lay down some very basic ground rules.

1. The discord will have Zero influence over the affairs of the board. Only Matrix Users will be granted that privilege.

2. No Drama or faggotry is going to be tolerated in our discord. We are going to appoint mods very apt at sniffing out faggotry and other fbi.gov type drama whores and they will be granted the privilege of booting anyone they see fit who is attempting to do so.

3. The discord will be subject to removal at any point in time. If you can't use it then you will loose it should the congress see fit.

4. The discord is subject to the will of the congress in the Matrix. Any and all major action taken against the discord and its users will be handled by the congress and the general attitude of the board itself as we see fit.

I personally don't use discord much if at all, so, I am not super familiar with the culture of discord, but, I have heard many negative things about it. (The subject of privacy is another debate entirely.) We strongly encourage using the matrix (which will soon be on our own servers) over the discord for many reasons spanning from privacy to having influence on the on goings of the board. We also understand that this is not a reasonable for every single person and some people just want to grill, so, use the discord at your own discretion, but, be on your P's and Q's.
I was going to lock this thread, but, I think I will leave it unlocked for general discord debate and conversation revolving around it for the time being.

Enjoy~

I have a question for all the anti vaxx fags

If you're on the left and you support anti vaxx and all this other shit: My question is "why?" Why do you support it. Really what is the point? You realize that if you are going to argue it's "freedom" or whatever you are basically arguing, tacitly, that freedom is consumption and that if people could just get back to consooming then things would just be alright again. Like no matter what you think if you think lockdowns are bad it begs the question "why?" And if you think they are bad because they restrict people's freedom (especially under our wonderful capitalist mode of production) then you are basically arguing that the endless consumption of commodities is freedom and that people should just return to that. You're basically no better than libertarians, kek.

Paul gives a disastrously bad answer to a very fundamental question about petty exchanges of second-hand goods under socialism.
https://youtu.be/LxANS7vkg68?t=1842

The presenter brings up a very strong example of wanting to sell an old guitar, and paul sidesteps the problem by appealing to the idea of a barter and gift economy. This is exactly the kind of thing that would have the average person feel like communism has taken away their freedom. It gets too close to the capitalist plan "You will own nothing and be happy"

This bothers me because this shouldn't even be a problem in the first place. Paul has already run into this problem with trade workers and come up with a brilliant solution. Allowing the self-employed to have a state bank account. It's only a matter of universalizing this so everyone could make transactions with each other. Would this open up a route for accumulation? Well, people could rip themselves off through unequal exchange, but the same would happen without a currency as well. Better lubricating these kind of petty transactions rather than trying to sideline them would result in a healthier and more productive economy.

One flawed counter-argument is that currency would enable "illegal" transactions like prostitution or gambling. The problem with this argument is that currency is not the problem in such a scenario. Its cutting your nose off to spite your face. Crime should be dealt with at the level of law enforcement, making it tougher by making all personal transactions tougher is only going to push people further into a black market. Leave it to the future city council to deal with crime, whether by education and rehabilitation, or letting the people's militia beat it out of them with sticks.


As for the fear of accumulation. There's a man that started with a paperclip, and only through barter he ended up owning a home
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_red_paperclip
Exactly as with illegal activity, this is something that has to be accounted for at the level of the law, and not simply suppressed or dismissed as an aberration of an otherwise perfect system. Making it harder isn't a solution.

Let's take a real world example. A black man whose name I can't remember had started a business outside a convenience store in new york. He would sell 'loosies', single cigarettes, for about 50 cents each, which was enough to cover the cost of the entire pack and make a little profit for his work. This is what some marxists call profit on alienation as opposed to exploitation. In capitalism the NYPD showed up and killed him by suffocating him during the arrest. You would hope that under communism, the city council would instead incorporate such a business venture into the plan and officially sanction the new social need. Again, unless they had reason to deem it illegal. Since this is a decision being made by the majority, it shouldn't be hard to enforce.

Weird exotic fruit

Has anyone trier any unusual fruit? I found the channel of a Yuppie who has traveled thr world eating all kinds of exotic tropic fruit or having it delivered.

https://youtube.com/channel/UChsbD6Clp-ZPqKwXJR3V7DQ

It makes me want to grow some unusual trees. I'm starting with a miracle berry tree. supposedly once eaten the berry causes sour things to taste sweet for thirty minutes. I am excited because it would allow me to basically give up on having sugar in soda. I could just drink lemonade without sugar, and eat bitter healthy food without suffering.

I'm also interested in growing Chico, a cinnamon tasting kind of apple. And there are a ton of sapote I'd like to try eating, and also snake fruit. The truth is most of the food and fruits we eat at super markets are only there because they're easy to produce or shelf long. The best kinds of fruit which are grown for personal taste by farmers are usually not mass producable.

That's why we as lefties need to take the time to plant more exotic fruit trees so those trees will always keep giving back. Then we can share the fruits without relying on supermarkets with the same damb flavors. We can literally eat more gourmet food once we fight back against big agriculture and capitalism.

There are for instance many kinds of bananas and mangoes with different flavors and textures but you'll never see them, when all the bananas at the market are literally from a tree that has been cloned millions of times. Check out his channel or google "exotic fruit" if you've never left your home and don't know what I'm talking about.

SquareEnix promises to add NFTs to games in near future.

I'm really enjoying all of the videogame journalists pissing and shidding themselves over the gold rush game publishers are in over NFTs.

Practically every major publisher is promising to integrate NFTs into games and some like Sega, are already selling them now.

One legitimate criticism of NFTs are their environmental impact. But every media talking head that brings this up never spoke out against the Iraq War that irradiated entire cities with depleted uranium munitions, or the Pentagon, who is the number single emitter of greenhouse gases.

So I'm with the crypto bros on this one say this is sour grapes on people that missed out on the ground floor of this get-rich-quick scheme.

I also see this as anger from the burger settler class who are now really getting priced out of the middle class lifestyle in earnest to the point where their steady diet of new videogames may soon be out of their reach. As someone who grew up poor and was always priced out of these type of consumerist leisure goods I relish their anguish.

Another example of this is when Settlers (read white people) shidded themselves over Disney's new $2000 a night Stars Wars themed hotel. As they rightfully saw this as a new trend in Disneyland Theme Parks where they will soon only cater to the 1%. I never got to go to Disneyland when I was young and was told by these same Settlers that I shouldn't be upset because I can live without it. Ironically, it's them who will now live without it while I can actually still afford to go.

And game journalists are particularly hypocritical because we've seen none scarce digital goods sold for 20+ years now, first with iTunes, and then with Amazon with books, and later Steam with games. No one every questioned the environmental impact of these systems.

Overall I think NFTs will be a net good for the proletariat, it will provide a second hand market of digital goods that proles have already spent billions on, and put a lot of equity in their pocket.

I know there's been a lot of cringe shenanigans around NFTs, like crumby jpegs going for 100's of thousands of dollars. But that kind of foolishness will subside. If people are going to buy infinitely copy-able digital assets like their scarce physical goods, they might as well have a way to resell them.

Because of aestethic. It was a great point of advantage for them, they had very good aesthetic, and it made them succeed, but…

and there was no aesthetic in Auschwitz, it wasn't anything nice to see, but outside of it they had cool uniforms and such. Now you can see the contemporary neo-nazism that is winning because they absolutely have no aesthetic whatsoever, on purpose.

Modern "innovators" frustrate me

1 really important thing anyone that has ever been an engineer at hell even trade worker learns is that innovation takes time and multiple attempts, you cannot reasonably learn how to assemble components together to perform a specific function wether building an engine, generator, new machine, material whatever and expect that design to perform its given task effectively the first time it was created. What I see people like elon musk,Jeff bezos, ma huateng, jack ma, anyone that works as a leader at NASA, etc all have in common is that they're collectively trying to push unfinished or poorly tested designs for their products and machinery into the global market to be sold or used by governments for their purposes and seem to exhibit 0 regard for the scientific method, and 0 willingness to improve on their garbage machines, no invention or design turns out perfect I can understand that's the case for anyone that's ever had to work as an engineer in whatever field but this laziness is noticeable enough to a degree that the unprofessionalism is apparent when you start seeing spaceX rockets flat out fucking explode while landing, or amazon delivery drones running out of energy while they're performing their service, or chinese made phones wether made locally or by westerners outsourcing their supply chains breaking within a few weeks from minor collisions. It's really embarrassing and wastes a fuck ton of time and resources along with contributing tremendous amounts of damage as models need to be mass produced for testing maintenance and assembling before a finished design can be released, a wealth that contributes to global e waste and excessive(and really inefficient usage) mining of rare earth metals along with oil drilling.

Eugenics

Why is eugenics bad? I have a relatively minor genetic disease I inherited from my father and it sucks. I saw my dad suffering it as i grew up, getting dizzy and having to lie down. I didn't have it at first but now that im older i ended up getting the same shit, i feel dizzy all the time and tired as fuck.

Yes I know eugenics has a bad rep due to nazism and scientific racism. And there's arguably capitalist eugenics as well, preserving the life and health of the rich at the expense of the working class. But if there was a rational social order, eugenics based on actual science and genetics rather than race or class, why would it be bad?

Why would a person who has a chance to pass on genetic disorders, or a serious transmissible disease (eg. HIV) do that? You're condemning an innocent child to a life of suffering.

Is it really wrong to say its a bad idea for people not to pass this on? I only have a minor condition I can only imagine what its like for people with severe conditions

These books will change your life. Read them.

<1. Capital, Vol. I | Karl Marx

The classpill. Discover the extent to how the bourgeosie exploit you. NOTE: I wouldn't recommend reading it in its entirety as Marx was a shit writer and Capital is completely disorganized. Perhaps pick up the David Harvey companion book and jump around with Capital as if it was a textbook. Also, don't bother with Vols. II and III, those are just for the autists.

<2. The Unique and Its Property | Marx Stirner

The egopill. Eliminate your spooks, be your Unique. Or, in layman's terms, be gay and do crime.

<3. The Society of the Spectacle | Guy Debord

The situationistpill. The book examines the “Spectacle,” Debord’s term for the everyday manifestation of capitalist-driven phenomena; advertising, television, film, and celebrity. Everything about capitalist society starts to make much more sense after reading this.

<4. Capitalist Realism | Mark Fischer

The doomerpill. Or, as I like to call it, the realistpill. From wikipedia because I got lazy:

"According to Fisher, capitalist realism has so captured public thought that the idea of anti-capitalism no longer acts as the antithesis to capitalism. Instead, it is deployed as a means for reinforcing capitalism. This is done through media which aims to provide a safe means of consuming anti-capitalist ideas without actually challenging the system. The lack of coherent alternatives, as presented through the lens of capitalist realism, leads many anti-capitalist movements to cease targeting the end of capitalism, but instead to mitigate its worst effects, often through individual consumption-based activities such as Product Red.[3]"

Far-Right Fragility and I Need Your Help!

I don't know how to say but fuck, fascists are too fragile about everything. Because of that, i'm in fucking danger
You know that at twitter, if you had post your pictures at there and if you are political; there is %100 chance that someone will post them as about you. It's something that fascists always do, they take pictures about leftist and share them.
Now, there is turkish-fascist girl. She is Turkicist, Islamist and so on; everything that sewer basically. She had captioned an vegan-food photo and said there avarage dinner at Dıyarbakır Prison 41 years ago. Referencing to the neo-fascist coup at 1980, where many of leftists, dissidents and some apoltical Kurds send to the prisons and they had tortured hard. Including rape and forcing them to eat their shit, which she had make fun of. Ofc, it created an problem at Turkish political-twitter.
Other thing is, while she is fascist, her photos were degenerate for far-right standarts. She had tumblrite red-hair and modern artistic-photos and while she is islamist, her apparaence is forbidden. And i posted them at bottom of tweets about her. I didn't attack her, or said oh, she is hot or anything like that. I just had showed the irony of her, she is degenerate but a fascist?? Then she triggered and attacked to me as How dare you share mine photos!! i will sue you.
WTF?! Other irony is, her acoount is also full of hate-crime. She is attacking everyone that not white-skinned turkish muslim hetero conservative ultranationalist male, yeah she is also an self-hating woman.

Now, as i learned.
1-)Avarage crime-sue needs 3-6 months for being had open.
2-)Twitter only gives personal-information about users only by request of courts
3-) After an acoount is deactivated, that account is being deleted after one month
4-)Twitter can't reach the personal-information about deleted acoounts. (I deactivated my account yesterday)
(I was also anonymous. I didn't post anything about myself)

Now, can i learn. Am i safe? Can twitter give personal-information without request of court.? Can court want personal-information this month ?

Now, other question is why reactionaires are too fragile?? At the same day, an (trans)woman that i'm mutual just said that She doesn't like nationalism and doesn't want to having proud-pride for things can't be chosen. It created an storm at nationalist-twitter. They all had captioned and sweared to her so hard. She said that they attacked to her at DM's since the morning. She had deactivated her acoount three/four times and she is gone now. She was too angry and as i understood; traumatised. I had look to nationalists and those bastards were too furious that someone said i don't like nationalism.
Also our leftist/socdem Istanbul governance made a show for freedom of Izmır and they had do valse at there. It was one of things at there… But do you know what had happen?? It made ıslamists too furious as fuck. They coped for like a month furiously and attacked to seculars for doing valse. Even some of them physically attacked…
They are too fucking fragile. Why??

my fellow leftychanners. we all agree on the horrors the axis and their cronies managed to cause with the holocaust. i have a serious discussion topic i would like to explore, namely that back then as well as across time all the pogroms, the genocides, massacres and so on, were clearly a reactionary action motivated by reactionary ideology each time. nazism in germany, orthodoxy, autocracy and nationality in imperial russia being only few of the examples of such reactionary antisemitism. back then the jews never held any meaningful positions of power despite the attempts by far right to portray them as a secret world government of sorts.

however, the situation has changed in 1949 with the state of israel being created. for the first time in history since the ancient kingdoms of israel, the jews not only hold power over their own state, but exercise oppressive power against non-jews and jews who oppose this arrangement for religious or egalitarian reasons. effectively it is an ethnostate with questionable democratic qualities akin to apartheid south africa which has taken upon itself to genociding arabs and muslims in palestine and practicing its own imperialism in the region.

my question is this (and merely a hypothetical to which i would like the opinions of leftychanners), could a second holocaust or a set of actions inevitably resulting in one be considered a progressive, if not an outright revolutionary action?

How do people confuse this man's ideas as being anti communist or some how that communists are some slave moralists at all like Christians or some shit? It doesn't make sense. Slave morality is driven by the false belief that one is free from the vengeful nature of the ruling class (in his class Christianity) and that they are above it and the actions of their rulers.

Communism doesn't trick anyone who follows Marxist ideology into believing they should "turn the other cheek" ok the contrary it tells people to pick up the gun in their own self interest and become the masters of their own destiny.

So how did the wires get crossed in the first place? Are lolberts who think commies are slave moralists just brainwashed? Are they the real slave moralists after all? I mean think of their ideology. It's all predicated on the fact that they maybe might one day get the boot.

Socialism with bullshitter characteristics

I've just finished watching the Caleb & Haz discourse here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5uUuB6Slqk about "muh third worldists and US socialist patriotism" (which was basically a covert response to the recent Caleb vs. Unruhe drama on Twitter), and came to a revelation.

Caleb emphasizes (generally, but in this exchange as well) how just like China had its "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" so will the USA in the foreseeable future have its "Socialism with Amurrican Characteristics [SWAC]." So it made me wonder… what would SWAC look like? And then I had a revelation. It would be how like their current advocates are, meaning Caleb and Haz: bullshitters making shit work by bullshitting.

If you aren't familiar with this take I'll give you a crash course:
>Caleb Maupin
>well read on communist history
<literal booklet when it comes to Marxist economics and philosophy
>tries to start an IRL movement
<is indistinguishable from a fucking Bob Avakian-type cult

>Haz

>well read on non-Marxist philosophy
<literal booklet when it comes to Marxist economics and world history
>tries to start an online movement
<is indistinguishable from a fucking Bob Avakian-type cult – but on fbi.gov/Reddit/Twitter/Twitch

And the realization dawned on me. These two people are legit representatives of American culture as such, they are the products of it, since no one can escape his concrete environmental upbringing and such. So when these two speak about the future SWAC they already hint at us what it will be like: pure bullshit, trumped up with ego and drive, or, in other words: 70% bravado, 20% improvisation, 10% saving face.

Think about it. Caleb's whole focus on SWAC emphasizes two characteristics:
>individualism (freeze peach, rights, humanism, etc.)
all of which are antithetical to communism, which is to say a form collectivism, and the points of Marx & Engels
>and market socialism
even if as meant to be as a transitional period, although he says that communism is achievable "a thousand years in the future"

Meanwhile, Haz:
>We Already Live in Socialism (TM)
>incel platform that does socialist content
>bitcoin is communist praxis
>etc.

So to sum up: these two are bullshitters, without a doubt. (I could go on with the examples, trust me…) But is this any different from the general US culture at hand? I doubt it. US "culture" is exactly this: loudmouth, "pragmatist," under-read, self-confident (etc.) fools saying whatever and believing it 100%.

So whatever SWAC will be, it will have this main defining feature: bullshitting.

Slave Morality in the American Leftist

Having been raised in America, the American Leftist is influenced by Judeo-Christian morals. Most Judeo-Christian flavors of religion were historically an enslaved underclass, and as a coping mechanism developed a Slave Morality that values victimhood and suffering as holy. The American Leftist is influenced by this Slave Morality, and identifies with the lower classes, so exalts weakness and fragility as desirable and respectable traits. This is out of a subconscious desire to reject the perceived ruling-class values of might and discipline.

In practice, this creates a degenerate behavior of sabotaging any Leftist organization that approaches authority. In the mind of the Slave-Morality Leftist, a Leftist that approaches authority is similar to the ruling class, which is imagined to be a betrayal of Leftist morals. This ultimately results in purity spirals of attacking anyone who is achieving any degree of conventional authority, instead putting at the forefront those who are the most outraged, the most offended, the most fragile, and the least capable of asserting their will onto society at large.

We have seen this happen at Democratic Socialists of America party meetings, where the attendees endlessly raise personal grievances to grind all activity to a halt, narcissistically making themselves the center of attention. The leadership of the DSA hesitates to reject these people, because they fear alienating the downtrodden underclass. The most egregious are those that are offended on another’s behalf, as they use others as pawns in their attention-seeking.

Formalized leftist organizations, like the DSA party, are not the only victims of the Slave-Morality Leftist. In less formal groups that have no explicit command structure, the Slave-Morality Leftist demands hyperfixation on the most loudly offended, and the most aggressively complainant. Meetings and discussions seize as people compete to be the most victimized, demanding hyperfixation on the endless tiny details of grievance upon grievance. Whether this is from a sincere desire to make the most harmed the most heard, or a manipulation tactic by attention-seeking narcissists, the result is the same: The complete halt of operations and inevitable death of the organization.

As should be apparent, a movement or organization that rewards incapability and suppresses the direct ability to assert one’s will, cannot influence society to a meaningful and lasting degree. The American Left must reject the exaltation of weakness, and instead praise and reward elements of power and authority that are leveraged to enact Leftist change in society. Should the American Left continue its rejection of capability, there is no possibility for development beyond Capitalism in the United States.

what to do

Just a dumb thread idea I had. I was trying to imagine a teenager asking me, "so I think I'm a lefty, now what?"

0. Find local lefties. Be a good friend for your comrades.
1. Join a union. Become active in it! Pushing for a fairer workplace is honestly a more meaningful fight than trying to change local laws. It'll also help develop the leftist position in your neighborhood.
2. Exercise often and learn to cook. The amount of $$ that NPCs waste on eating crap food is really pretty mindboggling. You can watch a little less TV or do a little less shitposting online to find the time to cook yourself a good, wholesome meal now and then. Invest in a weight set or punching bag; at least do some body-weight exercises.
3. Put up wheatpastes! At best, you may be able to make new friends and spark some kind of discussion. At the least, you may be able to trigger some wrongthink NPCs into flipping out. Good activity to do with friends, and is decent enough exercise.
4. Meditate, research, absorb theory. Learn to articulate what you see as being problems in our society and how to resolve them. Discipline your mind and learn to regulate your feelings.
5. Find ways to apply your skills to the cause, whether it's writing, educating, sharing resources, pushing messages, countering narratives, etc. If your town is absolutely dry, you can resort to online projects, but try to remember that online ultimately doesn't matter or challenge any meaningful threats to the status quo.

Anarchists, Lifestylists, and Perfectionists.

The greatest problems halting the left from progress in this moment are anarchists, lifestylists, and perfectionists. Anarchists because they are anathema to achieving the power necessary to assert our will; Lifestylists because of their cliquey self-destructive purity spirals and unhalting destructive criticism of other leftists; Perfectionists because they oppose and undermine any kind of incremental progress or minor achievements. Anarchists generally manifest the other two, while the other two are present independently among all subtypes of Leftist.

The work, the first volume of which I now submit to the public, forms the continuation of my Zur Kritik der Politischen Oekonomie (A Contribution to the Criticism of Political Economy) published in 1859. The long pause between the first part and the continuation is due to an illness of many years’ duration that again and again interrupted my work.

The substance of that earlier work is summarised in the first three chapters of this volume. This is done not merely for the sake of connexion and completeness. The presentation of the subject matter is improved. As far as circumstances in any way permit, many points only hinted at in the earlier book are here worked out more fully, whilst, conversely, points worked out fully there are only touched upon in this volume. The sections on the history of the theories of value and of money are now, of course, left out altogether. The reader of the earlier work will find, however, in the notes to the first chapter additional sources of reference relative to the history of those theories.

Every beginning is difficult, holds in all sciences. To understand the first chapter, especially the section that contains the analysis of commodities, will, therefore, present the greatest difficulty. That which concerns more especially the analysis of the substance of value and the magnitude of value, I have, as much as it was possible, popularised. The value-form, whose fully developed shape is the money-form, is very elementary and simple. Nevertheless, the human mind has for more than 2,000 years sought in vain to get to the bottom of it all, whilst on the other hand, to the successful analysis of much more composite and complex forms, there has been at least an approximation. Why? Because the body, as an organic whole, is more easy of study than are the cells of that body. In the analysis of economic forms, moreover, neither microscopes nor chemical reagents are of use. The force of abstraction must replace both. But in bourgeois society, the commodity-form of the product of labour — or value-form of the commodity — is the economic cell-form. To the superficial observer, the analysis of these forms seems to turn upon minutiae. It does in fact deal with minutiae, but they are of the same order as those dealt with in microscopic anatomy.

With the exception of the section on value-form, therefore, this volume cannot stand accused on the score of difficulty. I presuppose, of course, a reader who is willing to learn something new and therefore to think for himself.

The physicist either observes physical phenomena where they occur in their most typical form and most free from disturbing influence, or, wherever possible, he makes experiments under conditions that assure the occurrence of the phenomenon in its normality. In this work I have to examine the capitalist mode of production, and the conditions of production and exchange corresponding to that mode. Up to the present time, their classic ground is England. That is the reason why England is used as the chief illustration in the development of my theoretical ideas. If, however, the German reader shrugs his shoulders at the condition of the English industrial and agricultural labourers, or in optimist fashion comforts himself with the thought that in Germany things are not nearly so bad; I must plainly tell him, “De te fabula narratur!” [It is of you that the story is told. – Horace]

Intrinsically, it is not a question of the higher or lower degree of development of the social antagonisms that result from the natural laws of capitalist production. It is a question of these laws themselves, of these tendencies working with iron necessity towards inevitable results. The country that is more developed industrially only shows, to the less developed, the image of its own future.

But apart from this. Where capitalist production is fully naturalised among the Germans (for instance, in the factories proper) the condition of things is much worse than in England, because the counterpoise of the Factory Acts is wanting. In all other spheres, we, like all the rest of Continental Western Europe, suffer not only from the development of capitalist production, but also from the incompleteness of that development. Alongside the modern evils, a whole series of inherited evils oppress us, arising from the passive survival of antiquated modes of production, with their inevitable train of social and political anachronisms. We suffer not only from the living, but from the dead. Le mort saisit le vif! [The dead holds the living in his grasp. – formula of French common law]

The social statistics of Germany and the rest of Continental Western Europe are, in comparison with those of England, wretchedly compiled. But they raise the veil just enough to let us catch a glimpse of the Medusa head behind it. We should be appalled at the state of things at home, if, as in England, our governments and parliaments appointed periodically commissions of inquiry into economic conditions; if these commissions were armed with the same plenary powers to get at the truth; if it was possible to find for this purpose men as competent, as free from partisanship and respect of persons as are the English factory-inspectors, her medical reporters on public health, her commissioners of inquiry into the exploitation of women and children, into housing and food. Perseus wore a magic cap down over his eyes and ears as a make-believe that there are no monsters.

Let us not deceive ourselves on this. As in the 18th century, the American war of independence sounded the tocsin for the European middle class, so that in the 19th century, the American Civil War sounded it for the European working class. In England the process of social disintegration is palpable. When it has reached a certain point, it must react on the Continent. There it will take a form more brutal or more humane, according to the degree of development of the working class itself. Apart from higher motives, therefore, their own most important interests dictate to the classes that are for the nonce the ruling ones, the removal of all legally removable hindrances to the free development of the working class. For this reason, as well as others, I have given so large a space in this volume to the history, the details, and the results of English factory legislation. One nation can and should learn from others. And even when a society has got upon the right track for the discovery of the natural laws of its movement — and it is the ultimate aim of this work, to lay bare the economic law of motion of modern society — it can neither clear by bold leaps, nor remove by legal enactments, the obstacles offered by the successive phases of its normal development. But it can shorten and lessen the birth-pangs.

To prevent possible misunderstanding, a word. I paint the capitalist and the landlord in no sense couleur de rose [i.e., seen through rose-tinted glasses]. But here individuals are dealt with only in so far as they are the personifications of economic categories, embodiments of particular class-relations and class-interests. My standpoint, from which the evolution of the economic formation of society is viewed as a process of natural history, can less than any other make the individual responsible for relations whose creature he socially remains, however much he may subjectively raise himself above them.

In the domain of Political Economy, free scientific inquiry meets not merely the same enemies as in all other domains. The peculiar nature of the materials it deals with, summons as foes into the field of battle the most violent, mean and malignant passions of the human breast, the Furies of private interest. The English Established Church, e.g., will more readily pardon an attack on 38 of its 39 articles than on 1/39 of its income. Now-a-days atheism is culpa levis [a relatively slight sin, c.f. mortal sin], as compared with criticism of existing property relations. Nevertheless, there is an unmistakable advance. I refer, e.g., to the Blue book published within the last few weeks: “Correspondence with Her Majesty’s Missions Abroad, regarding Industrial Questions and Trades’ Unions.” The representatives of the English Crown in foreign countries there declare in so many words that in Germany, in France, to be brief, in all the civilised states of the European Continent, radical change in the existing relations between capital and labour is as evident and inevitable as in England. At the same time, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Mr. Wade, vice-president of the United States, declared in public meetings that, after the abolition of slavery, a radical change of the relations of capital and of property in land is next upon the order of the day. These are signs of the times, not to be hidden by purple mantles or black cassocks. They do not signify that tomorrow a miracle will happen. They show that, within the ruling classes themselves, a foreboding is dawning, that the present society is no solid crystal, but an organism capable of change, and is constantly changing.

The second volume of this book will treat of the process of the circulation of capital (Book II.), and of the varied forms assumed by capital in the course of its development (Book III.), the third and last volume (Book IV.), the history of the theory.

Every opinion based on scientific criticism I welcome. As to prejudices of so-called public opinion, to which I have never made concessions, now as aforetime the maxim of the great Florentine is mine:

“Segui il tuo corso, e lascia dir le genti.”
[Follow your own course, and let people talk – paraphrased from Dante]

I fucking hate this dude, man. I hate his constructed "ancient asian uncle" aura.
I hate the vietnamese communists. See how they jumped ship. They are buddy-buddy with the Americans now. They are a sweatshopland now. How is that possible? If the war was so brutal as they told us. Sure, betrayal is a thing, but it's not possible, not this soon. The people that fought in that war are alive, the people that died in that war are alive, that war is alive, it just happened. Yet they don't hate the Americans, they love them. And I came to the conclusion that my perspective was wrong. For the Viet Cong the Americans were never an enemy, they were adversaries in a war of conquest they won, an obstacle. So why not be friends now? And why were you even here anyway? In fact, they never saw themselves as a part of a global force countering colonialism; that was good PR. They must have been really confused by the Chinese, the Koreans, the Soviets and all the people in the world supporting them and rooting for them, they probably made fun of them. Communism was a vessel for national chauvinism, both materially and spiritually. They are fascist, Viet Nam is literally the Strasserite strawman radlibs poke at, and, quite ironically, the Strasserites are always happy to use Ho as a legitimizing authority.
One can even excuse such a backward subjectivity if it brings good results in the objective reality, but you can see now that subjectivity is the objective reality.
The gang of Hanoi sacrificed millions of their people for their petit-grandeure. They brag about it. And they are friends with the Americans. They probably respect them, their boldness. Predators compliment predators. And the real reson why they don't hate them is that they have no reason to do so. I mean, they can't take their boats and go conquer Florida, there's no point then in hating Americans, they are not Khmers.
I read that the Vietnamese accuse Pol Pot of the killing of 500,000 Cham (one must always forget every sense of proportion when dealing with Pol Pot.) The sinister aspect is that if the Vietnamese accuse Pol Pot of haveing killed 500,000 Cham, they themselves probably did it. The Vietnamese killed half a million of Cham; just finishing the job.
But it wasn't a betrayal. It was supposed to go this way. I learned recently that Stalin didn't like Ho (did the man ever missed once?) And it makes sense to me: he was never a communist, but a petty bourg nationalist, he pretty much admits this, moved by national resentment. There were many of this kind of people lurking around the Third Internationale in its first years - most of them shot afterwhile - dishonest opportunist aspiring warlords parasiting the body of the proletarian revolution.

4. start enforcing no idpol and no sectarianism rules with an iron fist
5. take an actually active role as moderators instead of being in effect nothing but the complaints department you have to in practice create a matrix account for because the report function is completely useless
6. fuck growth, fuck pph, fuck numbers since what chasing them has done is more harm than good for our community
7. bring the hammer down on /b/ by gassing the reactionaries and taking out their trash
8. bring the hammer down on the anti-/GET/ defamation which has zero evidence to back up the claim that it is a pedophile site or that it has pedophiles in its moderation, as the forced rumor goes

Communism and Nationalism

To begin with, let's define the concepts.
1. Strasserism (or Strasser's ideological position), judging by the program document "14 theses of the German Revolution", was an attempt by Strasser to combine nationalism, anti-Semitism, moderate social democracy and geopolitics. This attempt was half-hearted, Strasserism was in principle adjacent to Hitler's Nazism and was suppressed by Nazism, which simply rejected the social-democratic ideas of Strasserism as a screen. Strasserism was a form of moderate centrist nationalism, inconsistent and tending to right-wing ideas (German geopolitics of "living space", racism, anti-Semitism)

2. National Bolshevism (Ustryalov) is a "post-revolutionary" ideological trend among the Russian emigration, which recognized the socialist principle, but at the same time defended the idea of Russian national statehood and denied universal communism as a utopia. It is distinguished from Strasserism by great consistency and restraint. Within the framework of National Bolshevism as a synthesis of the ideas of Russian historical statism and the ideas of Marxism, there is less eclecticism. National Bolshevism itself is a mirror of Soviet state-building (Ustryalov recognized both industrialization, collectivization and the unity of the party). Initially, National Bolshevism advocated combining the ideas of NEP and cooperation with the ideas of a strong state. Then there was a turn to the recognition of the Stalinist USSR.

3. Left-wing nationalism is a set of ideological-theoretical and practical-political phenomena, which are usually united by the following things:
1) the presence of a left (anarcho-communist, populist, Marxist) ideology,
2) recognition of the right of peoples to self-determination and denial of capitalist imperialism,
3) statism or the idea of a strong, based on the original development of the nation and national culture. In this sense, left-wing nationalism can be attributed to Smenovehovism, National Bolshevism (Limonov), Gandhism (the teachings of Gandhi in India), Titoism (the teachings of Tito, who combined the ideas of Trotsky and the ideas of left-wing nationalism), early Maoism and, of course, Juche (the official ideology of the DPRK).

Strasserism is not left-wing nationalism, because it included the ideas of "living space","war as fate", anti-semitism and "purity of the nation" - purely right-wing ideas and was therefore not viable (since the combination of left and extreme right ideas led to eclecticism).

4) There are often people who call themselves a Hoxhaist or a Stalinist. This is not very correct. To begin with, neither Stalin nor Hoxha created such ideologies and did not call themselves that. Both communist leaders were Marxist-Leninists. Even during the Khrushchev period, criticism of Stalin dispensed with the use of the term "Stalinism". On the pages of the Soviet press, this term (used by Western Sovietologists) appeared and was practically legalized only at the very end of the 80s, at the final stage of perestroika. However, Marxism-Leninism itself can be considered Stalinism since it was created by Stalin.

In principle, in the process of defining concepts, I was able to point out the differences in terms. In other words, left-wing nationalism is a common name for a number of trends that organically combine left-wing ideology and nationalism, national Bolshevism is one of the varieties of left-wing nationalism. Strasserism can be considered a democratic nationalism, with strong ideas of pan-Germanism and anti-Semitism. Stalinism(Hoxhaism) this is true Marxism-Leninism, and after Stalin's death it is already Revisionism.


+++My personal opinion.+++

Remember the years 1939-1945, in all European countries only the Communists could form a serious resistance, since they were always in the underground, they were driven first by the national governments of France, Denmark, Belgium, Poland, Luxembourg, and then the Nazis came and began to drive everyone, but only the communists had an opyat of underground work, they both had turnouts, passwords and were accountable to the International, not even Moscow, and continued all this. A communist is not a patriot of one country, but a patriot of the entire Planet Earth. You need to remember, know and understand this.

Capitalist governments only care about the life of the elite and a little about the life of the middle class, they do not want to care about the poor working people. And in the USSR, the coat of arms had the words: "Workers of the world, unite!", that is, all proletarians of all countries and peoples were together for a single cause. By the way, Comrade Lenin and Comrade Stalin were not just general secretaries, they were leaders of the world proletariat.

Russian Tsar or European King, roughly speaking, is a small man compared to the leader of the world proletariat, since the leader controls the whole Earth, the workers of all states, and the tsar or king only his subjects, Russians or Germans or Frenchmen. You understand what a big difference.

Therefore, the responsibility lay on the shoulders of Lenin and Stalin many times more than on the shoulders of any tsar, emperor or president. Do not confuse a member with a carrot. Communists are majestic, and monarchists are petty. This is a fact that few people realize and even more so few people replicate because a true communist does not care about it, and it becomes not quite convenient for monarchists to argue like this. Therefore, it is clearly superfluous to mix nationalism and communism.

It has troubled me for a while that just before Covid was released, the world was in huge turmoil that threatend to spill over.

Everybody remember how all economic indicators were pointing to a massive crash BEFORE Covid happened. Also all around the world, on every continent, revolutionary movements had sprung up in response to the century of neoliberalism and fascism before them.

The amazon burned.

Its almost too perfect. Blame it as a chinese bioweapon, cover up for the impending economic crash, and provide an excuse for pro big business policies into posterity, "we need austerity because so much was lost during the pandemic" at the same time giving unprecedented powers to curb protests, this, right at the same time as all kinds of protests were stirring across the world as previously stated, and the world was about to have another big wave of protest due to impending economic crash.

I don't have a solid theory on it, but a lot of it is very out of place.

Behold the Chinese equivalent of jannies

The Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau, commonly shortened to Chengguan (Chinese: 城管; pinyin: Chéngguǎn), is a local government agency that has been established in every city in Mainland China.[1]

The agency is usually part of a city or municipality's Urban Management Bureau (Chinese: 城市管理局; pinyin: Chéngshì Guǎnlǐ Jú).[2] The agency is in charge with enforcement of urban management of the city. This includes local bylaws, city appearance bylaws, environment, sanitation, work safety, pollution control, health, and can involve enforcement in planning, greening, industry and commerce, environment protection, municipal affairs and water in large cities.[2]

The agents of the bureau are civil servants that do not have the power of the police.

The bureau is sometimes translated in English as Urban Administrative Enforcement Bureau or Urban Management Enforcement Bureau.

History
The Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau was established in 2001/2002 for all major cities in mainland China to improve municipal governance as cities become more crowded and urban issues became more complex.[3]

The bureaus' officials are responsible for cracking down on unlicensed street vendors. According to the BBC, "Ever since the agency came into existence 10 years ago, there have been repeated criticism of them using excessive force. This para-police force, equipped with steel helmets and stab-proof vests, is often used by local officials as trouble shooters".[4]

In general the Chengguan serve as an official agency employed by cities across China "to tackle low-level crime." However, the agency is widely disliked by the Chinese due to their abuses of power.[4]

Criticism

Chengguan vehicle in Beijing
Chengguan have been involved in several high-profile cases that highlighted public discontent towards a perceived abuse of power by Chengguan. One high-profile case involved Cui Yingjie, who killed a Chengguan in 2006 after a confrontation in Beijing. Public support for Cui Yingjie before and during the trial may have affected the leniency shown to Cui, who received a commuted death sentence.[citation needed]

Following an incident in Tianmen City, Hubei province in January 2008 in which the manager of a construction company, Wei Wenhua,[5] was beaten to death for filming the actions of the Chengguan in a local dispute over rubbish dumping, nationwide calls were made to abolish the unit. Thousands of messages were posted over the Internet and protests took place in Hubei province. According to sources,[which?] some Chengguan officials have connections to organized crime.

A 2012 report by Human Rights Watch documents Chengguan abuses, "including assaults on suspected administrative law violators, some of which lead to serious injury or death, illegal detention, and unlawful forceful confiscation of property."[6]

There were multiple cases in 2011 and 2012 throughout China where police officers were attacked by groups of chengguan agents when responding to incidents of chengguan's use of violence and abuse.[7]

In 2012, the Chengguan agency in Wuhan announced formation of an internal 'militia' or paramilitary-type division.

In 2013, a watermelon seller, Deng Zhengjia, was reported to have been beaten to death with his own scales by Chengguan. His body was protected by people on the street to prevent authorities from seizing it and to "preserve evidence." Violence ensued. Prominent microbloggers have called for the end to what has been termed a "thuggish" organization.[8]

In 2014, a man filming the Chengguan abusing a female street vendor was brutally beaten with a hammer until he was vomiting blood. He was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital. The five Chengguan officers were severely beaten, and four confirmed dead later,[9] with pictures posted on Sina Weibo.[10][11]

In popular culture
As a result of its notorious reputation, the Chengguan has become a popular target of jokes and internet memes by the Chinese public.

Time magazine reports that beatings by Chengguan officers have become such commonplace news that, "The word 'Chengguan' has even taken on an alternate meaning in Chinese. "Don't be too Chengguan" is an appeal not to bully or terrorize. In other words, "Chengguan" has literally become synonymous with "violence".[12]"The Chengguan is coming!", a phrase often shouted out by illegal street vendors to warn others to run away in case of a Chengguan inspection, has become a famous Chinese Internet punch line.

There are also satirical jokes of the Chengguan actually being China's secret strategic reserves, the "fifth branch of the PLA", because of their capability to cause "mass destruction". Punch lines such as "Give me 300 Chengguan, I will conquer…" and "China has pledged not to be the first to use Chengguan at any time or under any circumstances in order to keep world peace and stability" have gone viral among Chinese netizens in recent years.[13]

Vote discussion, explaination of methodology, and general on goings of the congress

This sticky will be for discussion about the on goings of votes currently happening in the congress.
All votes that happen in the congress must be required to be posted here upon their establishment as a vote in the voting hall.

For anyone who is not aware:

Every single person on this board is entitled one vote on the matrix for any vote that is taking place on sed matrix. Voting functions as follows: Firstly you must join the matrix upon which you will enter a vetting room. The vetting is pretty much to make sure you are not a poltard and that you follow some tenant of socialism, nothing more.

After you are vetted you will be added to the chat, the voting hall and the congress respectively. Any anon may make any proposal at any time
In order for a proposal to become a vote, firstly, a proposal must be created (duh); simply make a post in the votting hall declaring your proposal.
A proposal must receive two thumbs up by two other congress members other than the person who drafted the proposal.

After you get two thumbs up you, or any other congress member, may open up a vote by declaring that it is a vote, a short summary of what the vote is over, and a date and a time for when the vote will conclude.
In order for a vote to pass there must be a civil majority (no ties) from the time the vote opens to the time the vote closes. Votes close, nominally after 3 days from the time they are start, but, if a majority of 6 or more anons over overwhelmingly support the proposal then the vote can be fast tracked to 24 hours upon such a threshold being reached. One last thing: A vote that is deemed critical cannot be fast tracked.
The numbers required for a proposal to become a vote and fast tracking are subject to change as the congress grows, fyi.

That's really all there is too it. As I stated in the news post I implore any current users to join the congress who already haven't and give feed back and cast your vote you are entitled too/make proposals etc etc.

Currently existing votes

1. Creation of /i/ - Currently fast tracked with an over whelming majority

2. Opening communication with the org - Currently has an over whelming majority, but, is considered a critical matter so it cannot be fast tracked.

3. Merge hobby into the coming - /entertainment/ board.

Amid pandemic, Washington escalates war threats against Russia

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/12/06/pers-d06.html

It is very clear from the link to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Atlantic Council article as to why he was a, the?, leading strategist for US imperialism.
In his own twisted way he employs a multi-sided vision of warfare, encompassing military, political, social and psychological tools in pursuing what was a virulent anti-communist agenda, no matter what the cost in deaths and human suffering. Brzezinski, for all his apparent world view saw communists everywhere. In Chile, Vietnam, Russia, …. His bigotry prevented him and fellow travellers from distinguishing between Stalinists, reformists, centrists and every variety of defender of capitalism from Communism, Trotskyism.
Afghans, Ukrainians, Russian, Turkish, Vietnamese, it matter little, his only criteria being the defeat of Communism and the enrichment of America.
NATO’s, that is US Imperialisms provocative present day ambitions employ equally sick, regressive acts.
But there are important differences between 2014 and the third decade of the 21 century, namely internationally the economic crisis is immeasurable more severe than just seven years ago. Barak Obama, followed by Donald Trump and now Joe Biden have intensified conflict with and within China and the Pacific region as a whole. Inter-imperialist rivalries pop up again and again in the EU and elsewhere.
The repercussions of the massive 2008 financial crash were still vigorously reverberating around the globe. And now the coronavirus pandemic, which has been allowed to sweep across whole continents causing millions of deaths, many more hardships and misery as well as havoc and mayhem in production and deliveryhas further weakened international capitalism. It has exacerbated not just nation state antagonisms but class conflict too.
In the name of defence of Ukraine’s and Turkey’s independence it, NATO, spells out the role of these pawns of NATO’s war games. These independent nation states have no say in their future other than to accept mass deaths on their soil in furtherance of imperialisms ambitions.
Only the independent intervention of the international proletariat can prevent the slide into war. Turn the imperialist war into a class war.

> What does Indonesian socialism look like today?

Partai Solidaritas Indonesia is a fairly large, center-left movement. It seems to have a lot of appeal and the 🌹rose symbol marks them pretty clearly as being a democratic socialist movement, even though it's never explicitly stated.

population destruction in capitalism

Capitalism, drives half the population to poverty and despair, but subsequently finds that it is ultimately unable to reproduce the workers on whom it depends.

The USA, and now the UK are already showing declines in life expectancy. Deaths due to poisoning, suicide, liver disease. The afflictions of poverty and despair take an increasing toll

graph 1 figure 5a

A large part, the poisoning line in Figure 5, is caused by the deliberate promotion of opiate addiction. From the East India Company pushing Opium to the Chinese in the 1840s, the Bayer company selling over the counter Heroin as a ‘cure’ for morphine in 1895 to Purdue Pharmacy aggressively launching Oxycontin in 1995, companies have seen addicts as a secure source of income. The ‘legitimate’ drug firms open the doors to addiction, which is then further exploited by the black capitalism of the illegal drugs rings. The profits are then laundered via blue chip banks like HSBC in the City of London, a bank that was founded from the profits of the Opium trade to China.

graph2 figure 5b

graph 3 Russian birthrate post Soviet

Along with rising death rates you can see in the former USSR a collapse in the birth rate so that more people die than are born to replace them. As wage shares decline, it becomes impossible for families to survive on one income. The pressure to work more, the pressure to acquire qualifications for work, the shortage of affordable family houses, the lack of affordable childcare causes women to delay or abandon having children.

More and more people stay single and give up the hope of having a family. The effect was most dramatic where capitalism was suddenly imposed but the pattern of births falling below deaths spreads across the capitalist world. The effect has gone furthest in Japan where for 2017, 946,000 babies were born but 1.34 million people died, with the decline of the population reaching 394,000 in a single year. In 2018 it looks as if the shortfall in births to deaths will be more like half a million people. As Figure 6 shows this trend of a failure of capitalist societies to reproduce their populations is spreading.

A similar inability to reproduce the population has heralded the doom of past class societies. The Roman Empire, built on slavery, faced the same problem.

graph 4 figure 6

The early urban capitalism of the High Middle Ages in Europe was likewise a consumer of peoples. The disease ridden and insanitary cities within which nascent capitalist economies existed, could only maintain themselves by a constant influx from the countryside.

Once exploitation by the elites becomes insupportable, once a society can no longer maintain its population, it goes into crisis. The forms assumed by the crisis differ. Capitalism’s fall will not recapitulate that of Rome or the great European crisis of the 14th century. But we can see its economic effects already working themselves out.

The rate of return on capital is set by the relationship between the total property income ( economic surplus ) and the total capital stock. Corresponding to a given monetary flow of profit there is a population of millions of people whose output goes on the commodities purchased out of profits. Since money is a variable standard of value, we can express the profit rate in real terms as the ratio:

number of people working to produce the economic surplus
————————————————————————————————-
number of person years embodied in the capital stock

If the capital stock rises faster than the number of people producing the surplus then the rate of profit must fall. Therefore rapid accumulation of capital compared to the growth of the working population tends to depress the rate of profit. If the population stops growing or shrinks, then there is no longer any positive rate of profit compatible with capital accumulation. This process makes itself felt first in that country which traditionally had high investment rates and in which the population slowdown was most marked:

The refugee crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border and the danger of war
>EU and NATO countries are mobilizing troops, whipping up far-right hysteria, and effectively threatening Belarus and Russia with war.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/12/pers-n12.html

"The ruling class is responding with the tried and tested method of diverting social tensions outwards by fomenting nationalism, war propaganda and xenophobia. The brutal mistreatment of refugees at the border, followed by millions of people with shock and horror, serves to intimidate the population, accustom it to death, abolish basic democratic rights and stir up the fascist dregs of society".
Absolutely the ruling classes in Europe and elsewhere know full well that with the rise of all these contradictions back home it would make it extremely challenging for them to rule under the traditional bourgeois democratic means. For this reason they are resorting to more authoritarian tactics while at the same time using refugees as scapegoat for their own shortcomings. As far as they are concerned this is the only way that can help them to navigate this crisis without compromising their power and class privileges. In fact, these set of policies were tested during the run- up of second world war and we all know happened.

Socialist Realism in Entertainment, A Failure?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLxYklZAnBs

How much power do you think entertainment has?

This video kinda got me thinking about Socialist Realism, Like sure the vid is teensy bit radlibby and silly in its conclusions in some places but whatever
I just am puzzled by how could socialist realism be a successful campaign in any aspect, I mean sure the projects under it, even those critiquing it are incredibly influential as opposed to the stuff made under capitalist realism

But I propose that is a matter of time, The earlier in time you exist, the more stuff you do is noteworthy
Anyways, I think even with socialist realism, The soviet union fell, Clearly it doesn't help prop up the system as the dangers to socialism exists in the real world in the form of opportunists and imperialists

My question is what level of censorship helps and what level doesn't?
Are all these anti-capitalist movies made under capitalism actually amount to any actual change?

If not,
Should a socialist society operate the same way?
Letting anti-socialist movies be made under socialism because they won't amount to socialism being toppled?

And at the end of the day does censorship in art actually a stain or just a thing that looks bad in retrospect when looked at by youtube video essays

Science summit warns of escalating pandemic disaster

Great work by comrade Evan Blake, for a very clear report on the “Global Summit to End Pandemics”. The scientists involved have selflessly and conscientiously given of their time and knowledge to put forth the ways to end the current pandemic. But this is not enough. The financial elites are actually using the pandemic to increase their wealth, and to cull unwanted sections of the population. There can be no appeals made to them, human or scientific. This is a watershed moment in history. Evan is absolutely correct to state that the only section of society that truly has an interest and the ability to end the pandemic, is the world working class, educated in the science and organised under a scientific socialist program and leadership. That leadership is the International Committee of the Fourth International and its publication, the World Socialist Web site.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/04/pers-n04.html

Nicely encapsulated. I am sending this to all of my friends who continue to support the Democratic party. They must be made to see that their image of the Democrats as a pro-workers' party is undeserved and that whatever gains the working class once achieved prior to the 1960s are virtually all gone.

COVID-19 must not be the “new normal”
>The perspective set forth by McKinsey & Company, speaking on behalf of the corporate-financial oligarchy, is that the coronavirus pandemic should be allowed to become “endemic.”
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/03/pers-n03.html

This article is a blatant refutation against the ruling classes who are still calling for people to live and adapt with Covid-19 virus all under the banner that the cure must not be worse then the disease itself. Their commitment to safeguard at any cost corporate profits and wealth accumulation is the reason as to why we are seeing renewed outbreaks in US, Europe and Russia. These same Capitalist governments who have done a miserable job in containing the virus are now attending Glasgow CO26 for Climate Change. What a farce.

What are your opinions on Inejiro Asanuma?

Inejirō Asanuma was one of the few prominent politicians in the 1950's who was advocating for total autonomy from America and the removal of all US military bases, as well as the formation of a pan-Asian bloc to defend against foreign imperialist meddling. Otoya was (unwittingly or otherwise) doing the bidding of the US state department by icing this politician who was threatening American hegemony.

Global COVID-19 death toll surpasses 5 million: Government policies promote mass death
>Amid the ongoing wave of mass death, governments worldwide are scrapping all remaining measures to contain or slow the spread of COVID-19, with the grotesque mantra that society must “learn to live with the virus.”
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/01/pers-n01.html

Living and dying with the virus joins a long list of similar socially destructive policies pursued by our elites.

Like living with poverty, inequality, millionaires and billionaires, global warming, deteriorating working conditions, homelessness, world hunger, war … an incomplete list but already one that is too long to live with.

Everyone of these class hostile acts is measurable in the millions and billions of human beings that suffer and die as a result. We need to do something about it. Not as individuals but as a class, as the working class. It is our only cure and it deals with all our ills.

Stop the witch-hunt against scientist Peter Daszak!

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/10/27/pers-o27.html

The witch-hunt against Peter Daszak or any other respectable Scientist for that matter is intended to silence all those individuals who do not subscribe to the Wuhan lab conspiracy. In fact this is what the American bourgeois media is doing today. For the powerful forces who control the media scapegoating is essential feature for diverting the masses from their own shortcomings.

October 24 webinar: “How to Stop the Pandemic”

Scientists make powerful case for global COVID-19 elimination
>The October 24 online webinar, “How to Stop the Pandemic,” marked a major advance in the development of a broad-based movement, rooted in the working class and informed by science, to fight for the elimination of the virus that causes COVID-19.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/10/26/rgqy-o26.html

An amazing initiative from the WSWS, workers and scientists to thwart the capitalist death-profit cult. Scientific revolutionary socialism is intersecting with science itself to show the path through the graveyard of herd immunity by eliminating covid. The prognosis under socialism is life, whereas under capitalism it is death, economic destitution, environmental destruction and global war. The path must be made clear for workers to follow. It is the responsibility of all class conscious workers to help fellow workers understand the facts arising from last Sunday's webinar.

The horrific persecution of Julian Assange continues

What the UK High Court is doing to Julian Assange is extraordinary rendition in slow motion and in plain sight. His brave and principled partner Stella Moris, points out the most salient aspect of this monstrous legal travesty: that an innocent journalist is being extradited to the very same criminals who plotted his extradition and murder. This is what passes for "justice" under capitalism: a vast criminal syndicate in which the rich and powerful call the shots and subject anyone they please to arbitrary detention, torture and murder, using their network of media mouthpieces to slander the accused then censor the proceedings when it suits their filthy agenda.

Enough of the lies! Enough of life with covid, the rush to war, the trashing of the planet. Workers must band together and sweep away this unjust system, rescuing Julian Assange in the process.

the cogwar

>NATO is spinning out an entirely new kind of combat it has branded cognitive warfare. Described as the “weaponization of brain sciences,” the new method involves “hacking the individual” by exploiting “the vulnerabilities of the human brain” in order to implement more sophisticated “social engineering.”
>Until recently, NATO had divided war into five different operational domains: air, land, sea, space, and cyber. But with its development of cognitive warfare strategies, the military alliance is discussing a new, sixth level: the “human domain.”
>“The brain will be the battlefield of the 21st century,” the report stressed. “Humans are the contested domain,” and “future conflicts will likely occur amongst the people digitally first and physically thereafter in proximity to hubs of political and economic power.”
>militaries must work more closely with academia to weaponize social sciences and human sciences and help the alliance develop its cognitive warfare capacities.
>the NATO-sponsored report, which warned of “an embedded fifth column, where everyone, unbeknownst to him or her, is behaving according to the plans of one of our competitors.” The study makes it clear that those “competitors” purportedly exploiting the consciousness of Western dissidents are China and Russia. In other words, this document shows that figures in the NATO military cartel increasingly see their own domestic population as a threat, fearing civilians to be potential Chinese or Russian sleeper cells, dastardly “fifth columns”
>NATO and its allies in the military-industrial complex not only seek to dominate the world and the humans that inhabit it with unsettling cognitive warfare techniques, but to also ensure that corporations and their shareholders continue to profit from these imperial endeavors.

I highly recommend reading the rest of the article:
https://thegrayzone.com/2021/10/08/nato-cognitive-warfare-brain/


They eliminate the distinction between civilian and military, and everybody who disagrees with the imperial bourgeoisie is now a 5th column. I guess it wasn't enough that facebook gives people depression, they want anti-brain weapons now.
It's nothing new that the big bourgeoisie attacks civilians, like with sanctions, but this time they are after everybody. China has a great firewall, so nothing is going to happen to them but for the rest of the world, if these brain weapons work, it will fracture the internet into national intranets, at least until we get something like a spam filter for this stuff.

Fusion afterburner ?

A nuclear salt water rocket works similar to chemical rockets except it uses nuclear reactions instead of chemical reactions. here is a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvZjhWE-3zM for the uninitiated. It is the most plausible propulsion system we could build in the near future that is really powerful.

It is much better than a regular rocket, it can go up to 1% the speed of light in a few days. But fusion reactions can get you up to 15% light speed, and at that speed you can reach the nearest star system in about 30 years.

So is it possible to modify the salt water rocket to inject heavy-water pellets into the fission plume to get secondary fusion reactions.

on the incel/female question - why right cyberfeminism is the way to go

the other incel thread got derailed into age of consent shit-flinging, and furthermore i have a larger point so i will make a new thread. overall, i am of the belief that blackpill ideology and the materialist analysis of sex can be reconciled with one another. it is of my opinion that the reason so many incels are traditionalists stems from a fundamental false consciousness that has its origins in the truth of sex not having fully actualized

both black pill thinking and radical feminist thought share a fundamental kernel of truth: that sex based asymmetries are fundamentally grounded on the ownership of particular reproduction organs. other sexually dimorphic traits of the human species which are not primary sexual characteristics still play a role in job market, but as evinced from the fact that we still have unequal representation in jobs that do not require manually intensive labor, it should be clear that their role is far more minimal. there have also been posited psychological differences between men and women, but while they might have some explanatory power, there is a care that should be made, on how substantial these differences really are, which hasn't been had. my problem with this direction is that it uses a continuous distribution of neurodiversity in order to justify a bipartite categorical structure. furthermore, such an explanatory approach is practically inept, as it either suggests that nothing should be done in asymmetrical sexual standards, or an impossible regression in the material conditions of sex (id est, traditionalism). such a regression is, on one side impossible under hegemonic capitalism, and on the other hand, unlikely with current technologies (viz, automation, proliferation of contraception/protection from STIs, mate finding technologies like tinder, etc). this isn't to mention that a social-material regression would be predicated on women turning back on their material interests, which, without copious propaganda is unlikely. not only that, but many men either prefer to have women that are genuine intellectual and economic equals, or are simps who would rather prioritize the rights of women over their own sexual gratification

not only is standard traditionalism insufficient, but so is socialist approaches. the material conditions which produce asymmetries in sexual relations are mostly invariant to economic distribution strategies. we've had patriarchy since agriculture. technology and the reality of differences in reproductive labour are the ultimate determining factors

like i said, both incels and feminists recognize this. for the former, they note the expensiveness of wombs in comparison to dicks as an argument for why there is this difference in the ratings of attractiveness of the two sexes. on the other side, radical feminists understand that patriarchy is fundamentally grounded on ownership of women's bodies. both agree that the pussy monopoly somehow plays a fundamental role in the structure of society

my issue with feminists is that they place too much faith in their capacity to convince men to be on their side. at the end of the day however, it really does come down to a war of the sexes. men want pussy as social and economic currency. incels understand this intrinsically, since the main result of their incapacity to get laid is the resulting subhumanity/low rank in status that they feel. vagina=power, and men without vaginas are powerless subhumans (women have vaginas, and hence the on first analysis economically incoherent assessment that women live life on "easy mode"). to this extent, SCUM manifesto's inversion of freud is unironically correct. i should note here that while solanas might have intended her thesis to be largely satirical, we see this inversion both in lacan and jung. for the former, the sovereign is the mother, whilst for the latter, man's soul and source of spontaneity is in their anima (i.e. their feminine aspect). in both cases, the feminine is then intrinsically understood, either as a completing element, or the very ideal of completion itself. the problem was seeing the feminine as a mere negation, as opposed to an element which must be sublated for the truth of the male sex to be manifest

(if one is feeling particularly brave, male gender dysphoria could ultimately be grounded in this incompleteness of the male. im not sure how true this really is, but could be plausible. that the man's striving after creativity is contradicted by the womb's innate, effortless creative energy is certainly a contradiction that would cause much vexation)

so this liberal feminist idea that mere protest is sufficient is one that should be treated with skepticism. not only do men materially benefit from the patriarchy, but they in some sense ontologically aided as well. of course, the benefit in the latter case should be qualified which takes us to why incel attraction to traditionalism is fundamentally a false consciousness. a regression is plainly insufficient, and it failure lies in its fundamental ignorance of their real grievances. making women merely subservient to men obstructs man's reflection back into himself as the woman is still another animal which resists introjection. the problem with love (or recognition) is itself twofold:
i) the dialectic of recognition involves the incorporation of the woman qua consciousness into the man
ii) love and subservience are competing intentionalities. marriage, is in the last instance, a mating contract. "romantic love" and its relation to marriage is a prevalent idealist perversion which has its salience vanish when we move to traditional models

i should note that "transmaxxing" is not a serious solution either. and this is for numerous reasons:
i) reverse gender dysphoria is always a possibility
ii) with our current technology we do not have artificial wombs so it is an insufficient solution
iii) even if it was ultimately possible, it would only result in the male subject to transmisogyny since the womb is still attached to their organism

so we see here then that both feminists and incels have a false consciousness. they are attached to means that do not ultimately fulfill their ends. my claim is that fembots (and mayhaps menbots) can ultimately be the final solution to the incel/female question, but first i must diffuse another element in feminist false consciousness. this is centred around the outrage pertaining to sexbots

The beginnings of our new leftypol project

Hello everyone, we have received the results of our project proposal topic, and I'm delighted to announce that we are teaming up with 'leftypedia' to deliver our planned 'argument/talking point resource' idea. In case you don't know, leftypedia is the current version of the old abandoned 'marxistpedia' which was a project started by leftypol users back in the day, so I think this is sort of like a homecoming in a way.

https://leftypedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Anyway, if you have a look at the leftypedia site you might be able to tell that they have a much more formal and 'encyclopedic' tone than what we're planning, just like wikipedia, but the admin is going to create a separate 'category' for our new content that will be called something like 'rhetoric: topic' rather than just 'topic', this will also feature on the frontpage much like the encyclopedic content. As a tenplate, I'd like you to feast your eyes on these pages which someone on leftypedia already made (albeit only on their personal userspace for now).

https://leftypedia.org/wiki/User:Anarcho-Bolshevik/compendium

I'd like to ask if anyone can come up with a slightly more catchy name for our new section than 'rhetoric', cause that sounds a bit cumbersome to me even though I came up with it, so yeah, open to suggestions.

So, since that isn't implemented yet, I'd like you all to try familiarise yourselves with the site for now, maybe take a look at the articles that are already there and improve some of them if you feel able. Unfortunately the site currently has only edit by approval so you will have to wait for any changes you make to be approved, this is because of a persistent spambot problem and I hope that we will be able to work out something to change this to normal editing as on wikipedia and the like, please just bear with it for now.

If you have an answer to a 'common question', or you have an effortpost you'd like to archive and save, then please post it in this topic for now so that we can work on it together until we can figure out how to categorise our new section of the site.

Thanks for your attention!

EDIT: I've now got admin permissions on leftypedia, so I can create pages and approve edits directly. If you want to use the site I recommend you create a user account, which I can then approve once you make a productive edit (to distinguish from spambots), then you won't have to wait for approval anymore and can create articles yourself. Or, just ask me and I can create an article for you if you're desperate to make one as your first edit. Thanks guys, I hope we can make this project cool together!

BLM amd Barry Washington Jr. vs Right Wing Self-defense

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."

artifical scarcity

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 ?

mineral coups, how do they work ?

So not to long ago i was looking into aluminum as an anode material for batteries, because i thought that since Aluminum was such a common element it couldn't possibly become a conflict mineral. And here we go, just a month later there is a coup in Guinea for bauxite (a rock that is mined for it's relatively high aluminum content)

This is really annoying, i thought that it might be possible to design technology in a way that it could circumvent imperialism. I thought that Lithium was only the subject of imperial games because it's relatively rare. As it turns out this is wrong.

What's the error in my theory ? Not every raw material is stalked by the empire, so what are the characteristics that play the key role ?
Is it even possible to bypass the imperial machine or are they just going to jump on every material as soon as it's harnessed for a technological application. Is the type of technological application the key factor ?
