>>744642 North Korea and Cuba both have cities whose buildings are all pastel-colored, which kind of has an appeal but also looks a bit messy. That also looks like something the USSR would produce if it lasted a bit longer.
>>744642 Not fair why do only best Koreans get to live in hopeful golden age scifi
>>744677 The Cuban buildings look good, while the North Korean look awful.
How is Nazism and Nazi imagery treated in North Korea? Do they have cultural standards/laws against it as much as in more western socialist states?

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

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 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.

>>744122 Sometimes anarchists have to make necessarily concessions. Marxists, however, are not allowed to.
>>744122 >They were in the middle of a revolutionary war. Ok so was the USSR. Now you should leave the authoritarian-libertarian false dichotomy behind.
>>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.

>>743883 Who are FALC? Do you mean FARC? I can't keep track of all these Latin American guerilla groups.
>>743893 Yeah my bad, getting mixed up myself lol
>>743882 ELN weren't the ones who surrended. The FARC did when they entered into a ceasefire agreement with the government so they could become a "legtimite party", which went as well as you could expect. The ELN was then effectively abandoned to survive on their own, with probably the most unfortunate part being that they had stayed completely out of the drug trade up to this point, and have now been forced to engage in small time deals for resources.
>>744104 Isn't it a good thing for the profits of the cocaine trade to go to communists rather than the typical fascist gangsters like the Colombians in Scarface or the coca-cola death squads?
They should be defended to the end, but this is what happens when you don't want to seize the state: you get a region. Same thing happened in Catalonia and Ukraine, really.
