What should Education under a Leftist system look like? The current system obviously doesn't work as can be seen by the large amounts of dropouts and general scorn and dissatisfaction that is directed towards the system.

I'm personally leaning towards the Sudbury Model of Education, essentially the government, school, and parents have no say in what is taught (preventing bias and the brainwashing type of education in modern public and religious schools).
The school's rules as well as other actions are decided by a democratic "School Meeting" consisting of Staff members and the entire Student Population, each has an equal vote and the staff possesses no veto power. Meaning that the school is mostly run by the students, there is no curriculum and no classes, the students decide what to learn, how to do it, and can ask other students or staff for assistance if they wish.
There are no divisions by age or skill meaning that younger students can interact with older ones at will and vice versa, allowing for older students to act as big brothers/sisters to younger students giving them a chance to develop greater empathy and responsibility while giving younger students the ability to find mentors (that they can personally identify with, unlike the ones assigned under current mentor-ship or tutoring programs).

It's worked very well already in the few schools that have tried it:

What would be other good ideas and ways to reform the current system?

>the students decide what to learn

So the education plan is going to be set by who ever can influence students.

Is that going to be better ? Are you going to attempt to control this ?

>What should Education under a Leftist system look like?
Every year the Party Congress creates a highly centralized education circulum that students are forced to learn and if they don’t they are hit with rulers.

Except that kids have underdeveloped minds and can’t think or do stuff for themselves. They need people to tell them what to do and what not to do, and if need be punish them if they misbehave.

I've been trying to find some more information on the original systems operating in the Soviet Union. Especially those earlier systems that showed some promise and interesting features. I've been looking specifically at the BESM-6 due to the ample documentation available. The most interesting features to me are the system of modes, and bit packing, both of which seem very odd but interesting to me, oh also it's RISC which is nice. The CPU was also developed under the name Elbrus into the late 80's which is unique, and was reasonably competitive at the time. The Elbrus-3 which was a completely new ISA with novel VLIW capabilities was also competitive.

Would any of you happen to have any information on the MIR «Машина для Инженерных Расчётов» machines? I'm struggling to find any information on them but they sound fascinating especially concerning "a hardware implementation of a high-level programming language capable of symbolic manipulations" which reminds me of the exceptional Scheme-48. Also it seems to be immensely capable for its size. Thanks in advance!

Hi anons.

What are some good podcasts about marxist economic theory?
I don't give a fuck about racism, troons being troons, philosophy, political science or Adorno's aesthetics.
I want to study marxist economics, not radlib bullshit.

Here are some I particulary enjoy:

David Harvey has full courses on reading Capital on this channel. He's a good lecturer and his videos helped me a lot when struggling to understand Marx. It's also orthodox economic marxism not intersectional bullshit
Chapo Trap House, while not specifically focusing on Marxism, is effective at pointing out the hypocrisy of capitalism and imperialism. I think they'd make a good introduction into leftism in general. They do seem to jerk off over Bernie a bit too much for my taste but otherwise I have to say their analysis is on point.

"But how has this model of progress, in which history culminates in the glorious invention of iPhones and apps, become so uncontested?
And, if we attend closely, isn’t there a desperate quality to all this cheerleading?
Addicts always rationalise their compulsions, but the desperation here belongs to capital itself, which has thrown everything at the great digital swindle. Capital might still swagger like some data cowboy, but iPhones plus Victorian values can only be a steampunk throwback.
The return to centuries’ old forms of exploitation is obfuscated by the distracting urgencies of digital communication."

New tool album Comrade 08/30/2019 (Fri) 05:43:45 No. 149 [Reply] [Last]
New tool album is out.
Thoughts? Sounds good to me.
But, it feels like their swan song. They seem to agree. Anyone else listening?

In some respects it really sounds like they are pushing their boundaries in other it sounds very cookie cutter (not a bad thing for tool)

Thoughts?

It's boring as fuck. Sounds like the band had some riffs left over from 10K days and used some Kraftwerk techniques to stretch them into 10 minute long songs. Record company wanted a longer album so they stuck in some 3 minute "songs" consisting of random noises. Nothing in particular is outright bad, but it's just so painfully mediocre, especially coming form a band that was known for being cutting edge(y).

Yeah chocolate chip trip was pretty fucking disappointing. There will be faggots that will fawn over this album and unscrupulously praise it for years to come though,
