Socialism is electricity Shaytan 10/20/2020 (Tue) 04:19:58 No. 1014610 [Reply] [Last]
Machines can't run without electricity. People can't function without community and safety nets. It is our tax money that keeps society functional, but oftentimes this simple fact becomes perverted with the belief that giving tax money to the people in charge of society is how we take care of ourselves. On the contrary, under capitalism your taxation does not benefit you at all, it benefits the people in charge. What do they do with all the money? They spend it on themselves and on ensuring that supply chains benefit them. This could be compared to rewiring a modem to send all the wifi to your computer so your computer is always faster than everyone else's computers. They take your tax money and use it to divert electricity away from you. Socialism, on the contrary, believes in the value of ensuring that all machines are maintained, functional, and if they are obsolete, their improvement. Thus, socialism is electrification of the whole country.

What do you think capitalism/the world will look like in 100 years? Here's some assumptions: 1) The world won't end. Climate disasters/war may happen but they won't kill all humanity. 2) Artificial intelligence won't supplant humanity as the ruling thing on this planet. Any AGI that exists will be subservient to human will. 3) We won't have a revolution. "Profit" will still be goal of the ruling class/bourgeoisie. Just curious what you guys think the world will be like if we continue on current trends. Will we have still have "jobs" as we think of them? Will the falling rate of profit make some type of change inevitable?

India being anti-China is proof of WW3 Anonymous 10/23/2020 (Fri) 19:45:32 No. 1029069 [Reply] [Last]
Very simple logic here. - India is a Chinese neighbor - is also poor - is also non-european - is also eurasian - somehow, still hates China It makes NO SENSE why India and China aren't allies. There must be some reason why they are not. That reason is water. The water in the Himalayas is drying, and no amount of anti-US pro-Eurasianism economic policy can change basic water. In an ideal world, India would jump at the chance to be part of the Chinese century, and China would jump at the chance to have a juggernaut like India on its side. But India can't ally with China because doing so would be existentially impossible. And vice versa. Thus, these two countries will fight WW3 within the next century.

The Kobayashi Maru of the second world Anonymous 10/24/2020 (Sat) 10:55:04 No. 1031052 [Reply] [Last]
What is to be done when it comes to the minor nations? Is there literally no hope of outmaneuvering the political situation to, not even do socialism, but at least ensuring a relatively average life quality in a capitalist center left economy? I am from Lithuania, and already did some complaining about the exquisitely fucked situation of ours >>1004545 There literally doesn't seem to be a possible outcome in the future that isn't just becoming another Greece, taking out a shit ton of debt, going bankrupt and getting fucked by massive austerity, or just cutting out the middle part and just getting massive austerity. There is literally nothing that I can think of, even if we'd say the government was a totally unified and willing to use any methods, I can't think of anything that would prevent this. Even if we had a national currency and could try some black magic MMT printer shit, wouldn't that just end with hyperinflation eventually? I look at our situation and I have no doubt that most other second world countries are looking down the barrel of this same gun. So what the fuck is to be done about this situation? Is there any chance for any kind of positive progressive outcome here, or does it all just hinge on the global system? Is there any kind of agency that the minor nations have, or are we just forever left to hope for a less retarded imperial hagemon to suck up too?

>>1031054 second world is under dominance of Germany. The collapse of USA will not help them
>>1031055 Of course it won't help. If not US, then Germany. If not Germany, then Russia or China. All fucking same, except that perhaps perhaps, China at least gives some Marshal plan esque gibs. This only adds to the hopelessness of the situation.

Post examples of real life NAZBOL >Fascist governments advocated resolution of domestic class conflict within a nation in order to secure national solidarity.[214] This would be done through the state mediating relations between the classes (contrary to the views of classical liberal-inspired capitalists).[215] While fascism was opposed to domestic class conflict, it was held that bourgeois-proletarian conflict existed primarily in national conflict between proletarian nations versus bourgeois nations https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism#Economy >Li Dazhao, one of the founders of the Chinese Communist Party, identified China as a whole as a proletarian nation and the white races as the world ruling class.[8] Later Maoist movements, such as the Maoist Internationalist Movement, have also used the term to refer to oppressed nations of the Third World in contrast to bourgeois (First World) nations.[9] In the 1970s, the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party, USA used the term "dispersed proletarian nation of a new type" to refer exclusively to African-Americans as a nation of mostly wage laborers and industrial workers (with no significant black bourgeoisie or peasantry as in other nations), dispersed across the territory of the United States.[10] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proletarian_nation#Use_in_Maoism

>>1030695 Yeah because he hoped israel will join the socialist side. When he saw israel chose to become an ultracapitalist imperialist project closely connected with USA and UK, Soviet Union changed its approach. >he doesnt know why USSR supported Arabs against israel. >he doesnt know why USSR and eastern bloc voted the way they voted on UN resolution 3379 Ironic that someone this historically ignorant dares to call someone retarded lel
>>1030515 >If you dislike fascist policies and tendencies, you are a fascist This is your (smooth)brain on stalinism. Not even once.
>>1014805 >Cope tankoid >Stalin obsessed with nationalism, cult of personality, muh strong families with many children, removal of gays, and after foundation of israel became an antisemite. I'm a tankie and all of that stuff sounds incredibly based.
>>1013421 >fascist Italy >maoist China neither of those is nazbol. you can call nearly everything "nazbol" then. Real nazbol basically only in Germany and Russia. and the only existing nazbol party (which is relevant) is russian "Drugaya Rossia". Globally it is irrelevant ideology, i don't understand why are people still obsessing with it
