A cryptic new language Tutnese has been the talk of the town among the FBA community. Unfortunately there aren't many books about Tutnese that are not long out of print, and borderline grifter Nasheed has promoted Tutnese strongly but refuses to release the goods. Dump PDFs of relevant information here so that more folks can have the opportunity to pick up Tutnese freely.


from doing a quick Google search, it looks like a pig-latin-esque language game.

A thread dedicated to discussion on the (physical and life) sciences, as well as mathematics. Come talk about anything interesting you've read or watched, or just to share your thoughts and ideas!

>"What about the other science threads?"

The point of this thread isn't to "outdo" those other more specific threads. This is just a more general thread that people can come to and see science-related topics in one place.

Since this is the first /scigen/ let's start off with some icebreakers! What background do you come from? Formal/informal, self-taught, engineering, etc.

I'll start off the thread since I made it. I'm a physics undergrad, first year. I've been considering changing into engineering, but I hear that it sucks balls. I've always enjoyed computers more than physics itself, but I've been hoping that I can still do work in ECE research or something like that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_in_science might have some interesting thread topics too

wow nice


Can you recommend any literature that serves as an introduction to/explanation of Nietzsche before getting into specific works of his? I think as a philosophy newcomer that might be helpful, otherwise I might simply misunderstand or not register his points.

I consider myself fairly intelligent when it comes to reading papers, but I'm really struggling with this one.

This paper is about an education program in Indonesia and the long term effects on the job market. I'm used to studying more sociological papers, but this also includes lots of statistical analysis and words like function and regression that I don't understand.

Also, I've read this passage 10 times and don't understand it

>The production function in the formal sector exhibits constant returns to physical and human capital combined. The fact that the increase in the share of educated workers led to a movement of workers from the informal to the formal sector indicates that the elasticity of substitution between labor and land in the informal sector is smaller than the elasticity of substitution between labor and capital in the formal sector.

Can anyone help me? If I want to understand this stuff, what kind of courses should I be looking at?

Sorry, I read your exaplantion, thanks for assisting, but I still can't wrap my head around this idea, I think I'm starting to get it…

> the elasticity of substitution between labor and land in the informal sector is smaller than the elasticity of substitution between labor and capital in the formal sector.

by saying the elasticity of substitution between labor and land is relatively low, does this mean that because land is relatively fixed, we cannot simply import many workers to match the productivity, because at a certain point, we need the land to work on?

And then on the other hand, in the formal sector, the elasticity of substitution between labour and capital is relatively higher, because you can substitute labour (i.e. people) for capital (and vice versa, i'm not sure if this is implied to go both ways or not??), and still maintain productivity? So are we saying that the formal sector is more equipped to deal with influxes of workers (or in Marxist terms, variable capital)?


Yes. Where the author speaks of capital in the formal sector, he is thinking mostly of machinery and he is assuming that when the conditions of business change in the formal sector it's not that hard to change the mix of people and machinery to get something close to an optimal mix, unlike with land.


Bros what are some good books on finance (late 20th century onwards) ideally written by a Marxist

How do we refute the right-wing claim that leftists seek to "abolish" the family and romance?

This seems to be the biggest hurdle I've come across when talking to working-class conservatives. Many of them seem fairly sympathetic to the idea of socialism in an economic sense, i.e. they like the idea of workers' self-management, central planning, free healthcare, housing for all, a "government of action", etc. Yet they refuse to fall behind socialism because they believe that 1. communists want to abolish marriage, 2. communists want to abolish the nuclear family as an institution, 3. communists want to take children away and put them all in communes where they have no clue who their bio parents are, 4. communists support abortion (this is THE biggest issue for a lot of right-wingers, even trumping economics), and 5. communists want to see non-attachment relationships and polyamory (especially queer relationships) be the norm to replace marriage and family.

How do we counter this? I've thought about bringing up the fact that socialist countries that exist today are quite conservative when it comes to issues of marriage and family but I can't give any details to show how.

If i understood you right, then it would be like picrel but with family instead of prostitution?

Not Kengor's book, but equally infuriating.


the family is a cabal of child molesters with systematic backing from the institutions of state and private property (alien invaders in disguise)

What are some good books about the current state of "Actually Existing Socialist" countries? i.e. DPRK, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, Venezuela. Anything on Laos is appreciated, as its pretty rare to hear about it.

Appreciate it, but isn't Chuang kinda shady? You know anonymous collective and the fact that one of their writers works now for the Kissinger Institute?


>the fact that one of their writers works now for the Kissinger Institute?
source? also isn't the Kissinger Institute pro-PRC? lol



I personally like chuang and the two issues you posted are very good reads, just thought you should know that they had this incident



Anyone have any documents, books, videos, documentaries, whatever about the revolutionary organization 17 November?

Revolutionary Organization 17 November, AKA 17N, was a Greek urban guerrilla organization formed in 1975. 17N conducted an extensive urban guerrilla campaign against the Greek state, banks, and businesses, as well as American, Turkish, and British targets.

Are there any leftist analysis of Ottoman empire?

Or on eulogization of certain sultans of the empire by the modern Turkish state and the Islamists and how much it differs from actual historical facts?

Pretty accurate but as a Pakistani I'd like to add in my own perspective, saying were just brown Indian Muslims is always going to both reductive and offensive
Most of our founding fathers weren't even from the regions of now Pakistan and those that were from an urbanized Urdu speaking Elite, they lived in a bubble and thought that bubble applied towards everyone else, The idea of Pakistan that it's founding fathers had what that it would a nation where all would give up their ethnic and linguistic identity overtime and all be just Muslim brothers and sisters

Almost immediately pakistan found its self in an odd place in terms of its self identity, cause the people all had their own identity and history and often times had very little to do with each other, an effort was made to rangle all the people in pakistan and give them one history in the schooling systems and media

In east Pakistan (modern day Bangladesh) this narrative and policy was rejected by the masses, the Bengalis had both a strong sense of ethnic identity at the time and were the majority as well, the Bengalis made up the majority of the population even with every non Bengali ethnic group combined, but despite that they were thought of as less due to a number of cultural factors mainly south Asian discrimination and colorism, the Bengalis were singled out because they were the most foreign, to make a long story short this led to unrest, a election cancellation, political instability and the army being called in, a state sponsored genocide and Indian intervention and Pakistan surrender

After that, the Pakistan domestic policy went ever further in the Islamic identity narrative for fear of further seprtasism, radical islamism came not out of fear of communism but rather fear of ethnic nationalism and seprarism
Now the solution to bring hamonry among the various ethnic groups of Pakistan that the state has followed for the last 50 years is to surpress everyone's ethnic identity, history aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


samefag the most fascinating ethnic group that came out of Pakistan's complex history and is basically considered the model citizen despise an extreme minority is the Muhajir

Muhajir is an odd complex ethnic identity, I'm not sure if any other like it exists in the world, muhajir is a Arabic origin term roughly translating to one who flees or immigrant

In the chaos and mass casualties in the violence of the partition between India and Pakistan, Millions of people moved to what they hoped would be safer territory, with Muslims heading towards Pakistan, and Hindus and Sikhs in the direction of India. As many as 14-16m people may have been displaced

but here's the thing today in Pakistan the decedent's of the vast majority those who left India are not considered muhajirs, you see those who identity as muhajirs are not the decedent's of Punjabi and Sindhi Muslims who immigranted to Pakistan, they are the decedent's of basically everyone else(see my family fled from Kashmir to Pakistan like so many others but we are not considered Muhajirs)

From utter padesh, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Gujrat and so on, all the non Punjabi, Rajputs and sindhis who didn't speak the local languages or understand the local cultures were first classified first as Urdu speaking muhajirs but during the 70's started being referred to as just muhajirs, an identity based not on what the muhajirs are but rather what they aren't and for many they are not 'sons of the soil" a term with various translations through out Pakistan depending on the ethnic group

They are in odd position in that they are minority but unlike the Bengalis are over represented in Pakistans most educted and have a higher literacy rate then the majority of the country and by the state standards they are the Ideal citizen i.e they speak Urdu, are mostly Urban and Identify with their Muslim identity but most people generally dislike them

Giving the full history for the muhajirs would be far too long but they have played a huge role in Pakistans identity and they might be coming to end in Pakistan

Thread really here for information and interpretations (etc.) regarding the French Revolution of 1789 and the Russian Revolution of 1917 as I needed information regarding these topics but I fail to see why this couldn't incorporate material regarding a whole host of revolutions!


>the French Revolution of 1789

read Kropotkins book

<Vladimir Ilyich had a great respect for Pyotr Alexeyevich. He held him in great esteem, particularly as the author of the book about the Great French Revolution and he discussed at great length the qualities of this remarkable book. He pointed out to me that Kropotkin had been the first to look at the French Revolution through the eyes of a researcher, to focus the attention on the plebeian masses, and to continually underline the role and meaning of the craftsmen, the workers and other representatives of the working people during the French Revolution. He saw this work by Kropotkin as a classical work and he recommended reading it and circulating it on a large scale. He said it was certainly necessary to republish this book with a wide circulation and to distribute it free of charge to all libraries of our country. During all of our conversations Vladimir Ilyich expressed the wish to meet Pyotr Alexeyevich and to talk to him.
