Why did China want to crush the Vietnamese Revolution? Anonymous 10/15/2020 (Thu) 23:45:44 No. 1003299 [Reply] [Last]
and why did China back the Khmer Rouge? So much for left unity lmao

>>1003299 D E N G
>>1003322 For a few reasons. China had a border dispute with the USSR. Mao had split with Kruschev over de-stalinization, and each country began establishing seperate spheres of influence. The presence of a Soviet ally to the south of China put them in a precarious strategic position. The enemy of their enemy was their friend, so they began colluding with the CIA to install an anti-Vietnamese puppet state in Cambodia.
Because they are han national socialist
Vietnamese crushed the vietnamese revolution AND the cambodian revolution. Are you drunk?

This weekend's DDOS attack has been growing and it's becoming known that they're related to the protests in Thailand. The attacks that started from Thailand have come to include allies of the monarchy: China, Germany, and the United States. Main Protest Thread >>1004988 Southeast Asia General >>1012123

Every existing socialist state has become revisionism and reverted to capitalism. How do we stop this from happening? Hard mode: you can't say "material conditions" as an excuse

>>1016032 Also, lack of left unity has been a big issue too. For example, the disaster that was the 1918-1919 German Revolution might not have been such a disaster if the leftists didn't split in two and start fighting each other. Fascism was also a by-product of the abortive revolution, so fascism might not have emerged if a) the revolution hadn't happened to begin with or b) revolution happened but with the support of the Social Democrats. The Spanish Civil War may have also ended better if the communists and anarchists worked together instead of fighting each other.
>>1016032 This is definitely a major issue which we have to improve upon in the future, yes. Recently read up on the history of the Cambodia-Vietnam conflict and it was just so depressing to read about. The depth of division between the socialist powers at the time they relatively had it all. We need a radical deepening of proletarian internationalism for the next major conflict.

>>1016032 how could you forget about south korea
>>1016083 I didn't include them because they weren't really part of the capitalist core for most of the 20th century, as I was primarily referring to 20th century socialist movements. Now if I was talking about 21st century socialist movements, I would probably include them in the core. To be honest, the world in 2020 is somewhat harder to divide into a clear "core" and "periphery" than it was, say, 50 years ago. There are more shades of grey today, with countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, and (maybe) South Korea having both core and periphery attributes.
>>1016126 In 50 years their will be no periphery outside of Africa.

>>1016417 I sure wish we had less albanians migrating to yogoslavia
>>1000029 Revisionism should be confined to mean "purposeful mis-interpretaions of theory". Disagreeing with theory should be fine, revisionism is saying "Actually, marx said X and not Y" when that is not factual. The USSR did it all the time to justify their economic projects. That shouldn't be necessary.
>>1016417 I imagine myself in Albania, leading my Platoon. Our mission is to stop r*Visionist dogs from advancing. We mow down r*Visionist dogs but they keep coming. I shoot r*Visionist dogs but I run out of ammo so I draw my sword and begin slaughtering r*Visionists, since r*Visionists are way more psychially inferior to me, I slay them by dozens. Then I get shot, but I didn't fall, I kept fighting. Then shot again and again. r*Visionists were shooting me from a distance like the cowards they are. I lie down, facing up to sky and I see ENVER HOXHA (Anti-Revisionist) smiling at me, I smile back… Then I woke up, in the PSRA, my homeland. My ALBANIAN brethen gave me a warm welcome to the bunker. I finally made it, I finally made it into the bunker..
>>1016444 When I read this a single tear rolled down my cheek. It’s beauty made me weep. But as the year rolled down, it caught my tongue, I tasted the salt. This snapped me out of my emotional haze and I remembered, uncheck emotions lead to a misinterpretation of the material world, and thus to revisionism. I tasted the tear comrade, and I thought of Enver Hoxha.

Has anybody actually noticed that it seems like conservative people are more likely to "cancel" something because that media doesn't exactly have the political messages that they would want the author of the media that they enjoyed to have? Like the Disco Elysium getting shat on in /vrpg/ a lot when /v/ used to like that game when it turned out that Marxists created that game kind of tipped me off, but in various kinds of gaming discords (cringe I know) with a strong right-wing presence (Such as the discord server for Underrail) there has been quite a few of the conservative posters who said that if the game dev became an "SJW" they would just stop playing the game and trash his game. This attitude seems to actually be the sort of thing that they would do. Look at how much FNV is shat on because of the generally anti-right-wing themes it has, despite the fact that it's a fairly well liked game outside of that circle. I think that outside of Hairy Potter, there seems to be a lot more apologia about the media that liberals consume from conservative authors (such as the works of HP lovecraft and the author to Ender's Game for example). They don't exactly try to say that the MEDIA ITSELF is bad just because the author might have political views that they disagreed with. Maybe you haven't noticed this trend, maybe you did but I'm certain that "cancel culture" isn't just something that snooty liberals have in their pockets, in fact I don't even remember a time when they actually managed to "cancel" anything really. Maybe there is something racist the general public found to be distasteful but...whatever.

>>984753 >Has anybody actually noticed that it seems like conservative people are more likely to "cancel" something Not so much that it's more likely but people underestimate it and focus on the left. Reminder that it was nazis who got James Gunn fired from making Marvel movies. Socially conservative porkies also have a tendency to fire people who are "deviant" in their eyes whether that's an opinion like socialism or an identity like LGBT.
Communist countries are very tolerant if you spout the party line, and are bootliker to the nomenklatura. Historically

>high school graduates immediately subject themselves to wage slavery in order to rent a 2 room flat with a bunch of strangers and to afford university Why do westoids do this? Do their parents hate them? Have they been so massively damaged by capitalism that they believe that they are only worth something if they earn their own money even if it means to live in poverty? How do we combat this mentality?

>>1013675 Sacha baron cohen is based af. He was in the trial of the chicago seven and played abbie. He is with out a doubt on our side. He makes fun of right wing and liberals. Very funny too. Comedy genius.
>>1013675 He wants to make transport easy.
>>1015882 He seems like a socdem at best, and most of his work is usually a mixed bag of based and cringe. Take "The Dictator" for example. On the one hand the entire premise is mocking some of the supposed eccentricities of anti-imperialist strongmen like Ghadaffi or Kim Jong Il, on the other hand the main conflict of the movie revolves around the transition to "democracy" just being a cover for foreign companies to steal Wadiya's resources.
