I am very interested in mycology and there is certainly some overlap.

I am also very interested yeast that has been genetically engineered to produce pharmaceuticals in place of alcohol. I think the social and political implications of this technology are far greater and more imminent than most of the sci-fi tech that dorks are always on about.

By the account of most socialists “No.”
Soviet And Chinese academic textbooks and most histories written from a socialist perspective describe the Incan empire as an “Agricultural slave state” similar to the Roman Empire etc

I somewhat agree with this as none of the things the incans did were inherently socialist while some things hey did were inherently Feudal / Antiquated (Slavery etc)

What anon says >>75 is true, the incas even forcebly relocated conquered tribes (now enslaved) to other parts of the empire, and scholars ans artisans too, as the mongols in Asia. And in the top a society bases of religious classes -the inka was the son of the sun- there was a nobility and religious structure that sucked as a leech the surplus of the ayllus (1/3 of the land for the inca, 1/3 for the sun, 1/3 for the ayllu)

The important thing frankly is the ayllus, wich were the collective way to exploit the land. Mariategui and others saw a possible peruvian revolution (or a possibility of a based campesinado) with this historical precedent.

I'm pretty sure that when people refer to historical native American societies and their socialistic/communistic characteristics it is not usually the Incan Empire that gets mentioned.
I cannot unfortunately not recall the name(s) of the societies though, maybe other anons can.

 No.78

The various subjects of the Inca (which is the name of the ruling class of the society) didn't like being subjects very much from what I understand. Tribute was demanded and order was enforced just like in your typical feudal or slave system. You might say that the Inca were social fascists or social imperialists the same way the US would be if Bernie Sanders got his way on everything and continued US foreign policy.

>>77
There were some civilizations (maybe those in North America like the Iroquois Confederacy being pseudo-demcon or something) that were a better case for socialism perhaps, but the thing is very little is really known now because so much was kept in oral traditions and what records existed were often outright destroyed.

Only according to recent English Wikipedia edits from 2019.
Also the PRK and its committees were made up of communists, socdems, nationalists etc. and not anarchists. They were supported by the Soviets in the north, while the US forces dismantled them in the south and established the United States Army Military Government in Korea.

>In China there was a booming nationalist movement, quite anti-communist in nature, headed by the Guomindang, in which some anarchists participated, although downplaying their anarchism, under constant threat of being purged and concentrating in relatively safe havens such as Quanzhou. While fully immersed in radical circles in China, most Korean anarchists systematically opted to side with anti-communist nationalists. There may have been a number of reasons for this. The nationalist discourse would have been closer to their own longing for national liberation. They may have seen better opportunities to advance their autonomous social projects with them as opposed to a communist movement which they saw largely controlled by the Soviet Union.

>Undoubtedly, the fact that Korean anarchism developed in the 1920s, when globally the anarchist movement started a long decline (which also affected the anarchist movements in China and Japan) and the communist parties, led by the Soviet revolutionary example were gaining momentum and filled the vacuum left by anarchism’s retreat, played a significant role in the hostility of many an anarchist against working with communists. This was intensified as news of the suppression of anarchists in Soviet Russia reached Korean anarchists, an experience they learned from a Russian anarchist in China, Vasily Eroshenko, who paradoxically would later in the decade return to Russia and work with Communist Party cultural initiatives. In Manchuria there was a tense alliance with nationalists and active hostility against the communist guerrillas, which lasted until the Japanese invasion of 1931.


>But there were also other reasons, more practical in nature, for the Korean anarchists’ rejection of communists. In the case of anarchists in China, particularly since the bloody purge of communists led by the Guomindang after the Shanghai strike of 1927, they had to distance themselves from communists (anarchists would be labelled as “cousins” of communists by conservative nationalists) and thus downplay important aspects of the universal anarchist credo, such as its insistence in revolutionary means, class struggle, and the struggle against the State. In this process, Kropotkin’s ideas of mutual aid, of combining manual and intellectual labour, and his view of an anarchist modernity in which industrialisation would take place in harmony with

Remember that accurate mapping of the continent was not finished at the time and European powers still used rather archaic methods to determine where borders were

One infamous example was when during a debate over where Mozambique ended and Tanzania began the Portuguese diplomat just slapped his hand down on the table and said everything west of his thumb was Tanzania and everything East Mozambique (or something else to that effect)

The offical treaty saying where Leopold Congo began and ended was about as equally weird. It basically said everything between Congo’s two main rivers belonged to Belgium this was before they likely knew that the “Two main rivers” basically encircled the entire Congo basin

Also Leopold did wage a minor war against the Sultan of Zanzibar over whether Eastern Congo belonged to his rubber plantation or to the Sultans slave traders

>>211
It was considered incredibly dangerous yes. But people did know about the pure amount of raw / Rare materials that could be found inside
The majority of the Belgium settlements in this period snaked along the river usually with creative names like “#1-#2-#3” with the idea that they would harvest material and send it up river to the main port where it could then be shipped to Belgium

Belgian Congo was a buffer state between a bunch of other colonial Empires.
France wouldn't be happy with Germany getting the Congo and connecting Cameroon with East Africa, and both countries didn't want Britain to get it, but all three Empires could live with Belgium getting it and checking their rivals' expansion.
>>

 No.214

It's actually because the Congo was technically a private venture originally, Leopold just had a bunch of bankers and merchants buy up the land and Leopold himself owned it personally not Belgium, Belgium only took it over technically after an American newspaper blew the whistle on the place. The reason why Britain and France let him get away with it is because basic ancap logic "You can't declare war on me, that's in violation of the NAP since this is my land, not the states, statist"
>>

 No.215

Because both England and France wanted it but also didn't want either to have it so they decided to give it to Leopold on the condition that it be his private property and not of belgium and that he continues producing and selling rubber to both.

It's that time of the month again, time to laugh at France for everytime they fuck up and for being reactionary cunts who either fuck up Europe's largest social revolution or being the biggest Nazi ass-kissers.

Let's not forget the mutinies during WW1, the slaughter of African conscripts after WW2, declaring communism illegal after getting a generally elected communist government in the 1936 election, having the most useless resistance in Europe despite even countries like the Czechs killing Heydrich and the Yugoslavian and Russian Partisans while also having the highest number of collaborators of any occupied country, manufacturing 60% of all German armaments during WW2, purposefully destroying all of Syria's infrastructure before they left in the 1970s, selling weapons to Portugal so they could kill leftist rebels in their colonies despite NATO placing a ban on sales to Portugal etc.

De Gaulle is the world's biggest ass kisser and opportunist(not that kind BORDIGA). Even before the war he wrote token books on the future of armoured warfare which was just watered-down versions of already existing tactics from british armour theorists just so he could get a promotion, during WW2 the only reason why he led the Free French was cause he happened to be lazying about in England while France fell and was more a power grab then him wanting to liberate France, remember this is the same guy who said Brittany couldn't separate from France while simultaneously telling Quebec to separate from Canada. Also I'd say there was more collaborators than resistance. Even during the fall of France the French army during its massive retreat south looted their own towns and villages so then the towns would welcome the Germans who would stop the looting. Seriously how fucking stupid are you when you make the literal Nazis look like the heroes? Add on top of that the fact that they tried giving their entire navy to the Germans before the Armistice was even signed and was only stopped cause the British smelled bullshit and blew up the French fleet, and that during the war Allied and Soviet spies would approach factory owners in occupied countries to get the keys to the factory so they could blow it up, in every other occupied country even the bourg hated the nazis more than profit but in France when approached the factory owners would call the Gestapo to have the spies arrested. What fucking dicks.

Also how many times was Göring in Paris lounging on his fat ass? In Czechoslovakia the resistance basically killed itself to kill Heydrich, in Russia they would suicide bomb the hotels German generals were staying at even for a minor general, meanwhile the fucking Reichsmarschall is on vacation in Paris for the entire war and the French resistance did jack diddly squat.

I am glad that they fought against the Mexican state. I am pissed that they didn't do anything more than secure a cluster of villages in a jungle. I am disappointed they refuse to make use of revolutionary theory (and I don't accept their "indigenous uniqueness" as an excuse). I am unimpressed that their main purpose for existence seems to be for selling coffee to hipsters. (I do really like Rage Against The Machine, but come on, guys.)
