People here don't want to talk about racial intelligence differences because it's "Idpol". I respect that. But what about intelligence differences driven by climate? It seems pretty clear to me that people living near the equator are less intellectually gifted, and subsequently their countries became less developed.

>>744401 There is a right-winged conspiracy that a diversity of skin colour leads to division between the working class. Even though the capitalist will use anything to divide the working class, not only skin colour. For example in Tsarist Russia they tried to sow division in between the rural and urban workers.
>>744419 They also do that here in America. Cites are godless crime ridden hell holes and the country side is all deliverance. In reality both have the same issues. De-industrialization, shitty internet monopolies, underfunded social services, corrupt police, decaying infrastructure and property prices being high due to a bunch of retired boomers living in mini suburbs. With investors holding on to the rest.

I hate RT. Anonymous 08/01/2020 (Sat) 23:56:12 No. 737914 [Reply] [Last]
I consume a lot of various foreign media. I do this with the intent, to understand the perspective of certain governments. And usually, all news outlets which are more or less aligned to a government, present a quite coherent perspective. But not RT. OK, RT shows also the perspective of the russian government from time to time, but mostly they are just spreading misinformation. RT isn't even trying to present a coherent worldview, their main task is spreading confusion and dunking on the west. And then you will get news like: >COVID19 is fake >5G is dangerous >confederate statues are based They claim, that they want to display a "wide selection of different opinions" but we all know, that this is a lie. Their "journalism" isn't a tool to represent the russian perspective, they just want to spread chaos. As highly I'm sceptical of western mainstream media, RT doesn't even tries to present itself in a serious manner. Perhaps I'm a little bit too harsh with them, because they also make good content. But once you have realized that they see information just as a mean to forment confusion, you will automatically see their content in a different light. Did you made a similar observation?

>>737989 I agree tbh. But at the same time I'm kinda jealous of him having such a comfy job where he gets to say whatever he wants (that's the benefit of being a useful idiot I guess).
>>737914 RT is shit and always has been.
I like RT for the same reason Jesse Ventura likes working with them, these guys will basically run any kind of story with any kind of viewpoint (probably with exceptions in terms of Russian libs) but in all honesty if you're an American journalist with a different view that isnt voting for Trump or Biden then most likely you should work with RT assuming you aren't already

Redpill me on Trotsky. Why do MLs hate him so much?
37 posts and 6 images omitted.
>>744296 so was marx
>>744231 >>744261 This was the mistaken line of Trotsky from the very beginning: to sacrifice the USSR for an abstract conception of world communism. This is exactly why Stalin had the anti-cosmopolitan campaign (and not because the anti-semitism allegations). The rootless in "rootless cosmopolitanism" denotes exactly this: that you want to further communism by abandoning the socialism you already have. Russian Jews who wished to leave the USSR to build Utopian kibbutzes in Israel did just this. Meanwhile, the path that Trotsky sets for his newest wrecking project: "the Fourth International supports a struggle to the death against Stalinism" (Trotsky [1967], pp. 75-76). And this, after he was expelled instead of killed as he should have been, after the Soviet consulate authorities even paid him $1,500 for ‘royalties’ as an author in Turkey (Broué [1991], p. 632). It was a pure gesture of "do what ever the fuck you want, just stop wrecking, k?" but the fucker just couldn't stop. He was actually hoping that Hitler would topple the soviet leadership FOR him as he couldn't stop thinking of himself as the RIGHTFUL HEIR: "However, before going to hell, Hitler could inflict such a defeat on the Soviet Union that it could cost the head of the oligarchy in the Kremlin." (Trotsky [1988], pp. 1258-59.) So while literally anyone with two functioning braincells understood that the future of world communism is inseparable from Russia and that the Great Patriotic War would decide whether the communist movement exists could survive or not, Trotsky was advocating a different understanding of "patriotism": "Soviet patriotism can’t be separated from the irreconcilable struggle against the Stalinist clique." Such a great "New International" you got there.
>>744296 fuck off
>>744304 >Soviet consulate authorities even paid him $1,500 for ‘royalties’ Which, btw, in current money is around $22,613 - the whole yearly income of some Americans today. So yes, Stalin made a mistake. The mistake of not liquidating Trotsky and spoiling him even further.
>>743797 To answer this question, this guy >>743800 is correct. Any trot who seriously became a trot cause of that meme understanding of theory is a retard

America won the space race and thinking otherwise is just a hot take. After the moonlanding soviets just gave up instead of matching that feat, ending the race. The next steps in the space race would have been a permanent moon base and Mars mission, but that did not happen because USSR capitulated. USSR reached out for the low hanging fruits but could do no more. Also, first animal in space was American so there's that popsci mistake in there.

>>744128 Failed opportunist socialist state. Similar problem to the USSR (country of peasants, not workers), never got close to anything like a DOTP. Actually transitioned to oligarchy much easier than the USSR, because the bureaucratic state apparatus was never as powerful. Seen great economic success through state guided economic development (similar to many other countries, including neighbors like Taiwan). Due to the combination of their large size and their development, they have become a very powerful nation, with still plenty of productivity headroom to go. The US finds this very threatening of course, since the growing economic influence that China has is undermining the alliances that enable US imperial control. Right now the US is attempting to stop China before they reach critical mass, using trade war to limit Chinese economic influence. This however risks driving international capital to China instead if they haven't calculated correctly; they are hoping that somehow China is a paper tiger and that political contradictions will come to the surface under pressure. However if China doesn't fracture they risk driving capital even faster from the US. Who should we support? no-one really, this is mostly just capital shuffling the deck, either way history will lurch forwards. If it actually comes to war then revolutionary defeatism is the sensible option.

>>744128 Do you want a real HOT REDPILL on China? China started dying with the liquidation of the landlords. They were the educated class of neets that essentially produced chinese civilization for millennia, no doubt they would have been the same but marxist in the CPC era. They should have been salaried by the state and kept doing what they were doing (nothing). Today chinese are fucking stupid because there is no idle people officially sanctioned. But the real decisive cause of the grim situation is the demolition of the barefoot doctors. They were a powerful intelligence on the country, and a source of real science and experience. Up until this year I couldn't have a guess why Deng got rid of them; today is clear. The first reason is that thay would have reported the degradation of poor people's health correlated with market reforms; the second is that if China wanted to be a part of the globalized world, this source of knowledge had to go, couldn't interfere with the global rockefeller medicine. And this is how the Sassoon-Rothschild finally conquered China since the first Opium war thay started.

>>744107 Fun fact for ya, in authoritarian slave society of USSR a worker could leave his job in the middle of the day to do whatever with zero repercussions, the manager most likely wouldn't even get mad since they lobbied gosplan to make their plan more lenient to cover for that shit anyway. That barbaric practice continued up until based and freedompilled Gorby ordered cops to literally catch workers and force them to wagecuck on the clock.

>>743824 This pandemic is truly a blessing.
>>743824 This can't continue forever, eventually the economic base will push it's huge veined erect cock in the ass of the superstructure and rip it apart. And if that isn't enough climate Change will make sure it will be a double penetration BBC gangbang edition. We are about to witness the collapse of "the end of history".
>>743838 Fukuyama already walked back on "end of history" a while ago. This was before corona
>>743824 after spending a lot of time using that kind of "post-modern lens" or "framework" or whatever as a way to look at the world, I realized it sucks and is utterly retarded. Just realzie that the West is imperial and lives off of super-profits from the empire, so the working class can't touch them until it dries up. Then that seeming invulnerability and futility of the post-modern contemporary frame disappears. It's just taken a long time to fall. Don't worry, the base determines the superstructure no matter what. This psychotic feeling of beating your head against a wall WILL end. TRPTF is still and always will be a thing, even in the empire and it's tendrils into the global south. Hang in there.
>>743793 As other anons have suggested, its a mass-societal case of shifting the goalposts. Whereas we once considered a few percentage point drops in GDP to be unthinkable, they’re now not only the norm, but an impossibly optimistic goal. Our new, hypernormalized “normal” is becoming double-digit negatives. Yes, this is as apocalyptic as it sounds.
