Since we're leftists, there shouldn't be many differences ideologically, but our community has its own jargon and idiosyncrasies which might be jarring to outsiders. Second, although we allow slurs, we are anti-bigotry and it will not be tolerated. Thirdly, the board has an anti-idpol rule. Meaning that discussion of idpol topics is not allowed. There is some flexibility. Where that flexibility is also requires some time to get the feel of it. Fourthly, don't put anything in the name, or email fields.

>>904504 There is a ban on TOR posters uploading files because our political rivals will spam the site with CP and or CP will be posted on the site behind the tor proxy. Image Uploading has been disabled with TOR to prevent this. This is how it was on 8ch.net, too. It's a fair compromise.

>>909475 Same shit Jon Stewart did to normalize Bush's atrocities - let people laugh at the absurdity, but you can't actually make a passionate case against such rampant abuses. You can only engage in cynicism. >>909481 This is almost entirely a political crisis. Materially, there is no reason why we need to do any of this - there is no famine, there is no genuine resource shortage, and there is no reason we need to have a war machine in the Middle East. Politically, and for the purposes of political economy, we have crisis after crisis, not because we have to, but because certain parties want there to be a crisis, because the republican apparatus of the United States is completely oligarchic and the ruling elites refuse to act with any responsibility to the public. If the political system worked at all, very likely the US government would have fallen and we would be in the middle of a convention to decide on a new constitution or at least a massive reform of basic institutions. But instead, we have forces that want to take this crisis further, because it is useful for their desired aims, because public resistance to the coming dictatorship is weak and there are very enthusiastic groups who look at a dictatorship as a way to reap big rewards. No one is taking climate boogaloo serious, nor should they. The real material causes would be the inability of American military force to accomplish the political objectives of Empire - just maintaining its deployments at the moment is expensive, and the planned-for death march across Asia isn't possible. But even this is not directly related to the current crisis, or our fate - the reason this decline is going to fuck us is because those in power decided the poors are to pay the costs of Empire, while a well off 20% of the population reap all of the rewards. There is no material reason why living standards across the board had to plummet as they have since 2008, there is no reason why the past decade had to be this miserable. It's pretty much all political.

Every empire was at its peak military strength right before crashing. Reliance on military strength, in terms of hegemony, is a sign of weakness and rot.

>>909485 The government will be socially socialist , if such concepts will matter in a post scarcity economy. The costs of production will drop to the point where the 1% lose their monopoly over it and it will become the domain of the people. And augmentations will be within the reach of everyone who wants them. All basic needs will be met and humans will strive for higher things , pursuing their own agendas , such as creating art or furthering science for their own pleasure rather than by necessity. The earth will also heal and become a garden as humanity rises up and takes up its destiny among the stars, >>909491 the few anprims holdouts will be allowed to live on a rehabilitated garden earth that is far more abundant than the wild earth ever was and they can return to monke if they wish.

Reminder to read Marx very critically Anonymous 09/28/2020 (Mon) 03:00:46 No. 908698 [Reply] [Last]
Seriously, everyone here should be reading Marxists insanely critically, more critically than you would read Mein Kampf, or Capitalism and Freedom. Try to find the smallest problems with their theories and writings. This thread is dedicated to that and discussion of this.

>>909318 to ignore the study of economic, political, and social developments of ML theory through the 20th to 21st century is to reject the scientific application of Marxism leninism and is really just an outdated political aesthetic with limited solutions for complex modern issues

>>909325 I'd say "Unique and His Property" if you are looking for anarchism divorced from marxist though. "Bez państwa" by Górski is also stellar, if you want to explore participatory democracy in depth, but I doubt it was ever translated. Also Goldmann essays. Her "minority and majority" is top tier shit, if you are into sociology. As for marxist anarchists, "Organisational Platform of the Libertarian Communists" by Dielo Truda.
