"The X-Files got nothing on this shit"
This Thread is dedicated for the discussion, analysis and reveal of obscure information on the shadowy hands of capitalism and fascism - the federal agents - and their efforts as part of the porky hydra. Propaganda and conspiracies of these Alphabet agencies and their impacts today and past are to be discussed.
Information and discussion on the OSS and NSA or equivalent government agencies of other countries - such as MI6 of Britain or the Nazi Gestapo - are also encouraged to be posted. KGB and FSB can be discussed too.
Technology for spying and espionage are also welcome. NATO and US military abuses or the affairs of corporate military-industrial complexes that are covered or hushed up also apply. Whistleblowers like Assange and Snowden are permitted sources of information as well.

I think it can be an explanation, but it is not unitary. Some people grit their teeth and bear it because they have no other option than homelessness and starvation until they can find a better job. Some people enjoy the labour they do and so more than tolerate it. Others are examples of learned helplessness, they just can't find the motivation to find or even try to seek an escape and just descend into the drudgery of it to no real purpose.

>The 2016 Saumur Daesh Cell was chanced upon by gardeners in Saumur, France. On the afternoon of 21st September, they saw a white van leaving a cave. Investigating, they discovered a cache of materials indicative of a Daesh (ISIS) terror cell, including ISIS flags, audio/video equipment and a generator. Police were notified, only to later report a "false alarm" after the information had been passed up to the French Ministry of Defense. It was later reported to have been a "terror exercise", although (in an echo of the Ryazan incident) the local police denied all knowledge.[1] The commercially-controlled media response was limited, and no connection was made to Operation Gladio or Operation Gladio/B.
Anyone have more on this?

is it worth it to study Hegel? How does the Marxist even interpret his works? Just replace every time he mentions spirit or god with matter? His logic seems to be the primary focus of marxists but what of his phenomenology?

Directly he doesn't, yes, but it's important to understand the process of philosophical developments and their relations throughout history in order to fully holistically grasp the philosophy itself; it will embellish one's self with a deeper range of angles and conceptuality. As a random example, imagine trying to read someone like Quentin Meillassoux (weird philosopher, relevant in the sense that he poses a 'challenge' to materialism, albeit not a rigorously formidable one) without first having read Kant. You theoretically could, in that you could ascertain his novel framework independently, but you'd be deprived of the very important partial context which informed Meillassoux's basis.

Those guys won the Russian civil war because they listened to people that followed a materialist dialectical critique of all that is Hegelianism. This is called Marxism.

 No.11032

>>10990
There was an active split of Marxism right after the Russian Civil War between Deborinists and Mechanists. The former won out and attributed dialectics as the foundation of Marxism. The Mechanists rejected dialectics and wanted to make Marxism purepy empyrical, and distance it from the idealist Hagelian roots. Ir is also important to mention that the Deborian school found its origins from German idealists of the 19th century that were oppossed to "anglo" empyricism as it was applied to the sciences. It is also worth to mention that these idealist notions about science can be thoroughly considered bogus by todays standarts. Sadly the same can't be said about Marxist doctorines.

I ghosted my employers. I was working in front of a deep fryer, never clocking in sober, and hauling ass if I do say. I sent in a picture of a positive covid test right before I ghosted so hopefully that slowed down finding a replacement a bit. Fuck this company even though its union.

Basically, I'm sick of working minimum wage jobs. I was already sick of it which is why I was unemployed for so long before this one. I've been making "content" since I was a kid and I've had some humble earnings, never much more than 500 a month. I've never even tried the whole cookie cutter daily upload thing, usually opting only for projects that are both completely outside my skill-set and have some inherent social worth in my eyes. I've long known this to no be a profitable strategy. At this point I think I have the requisite skills for a number of somewhat seedy and extremely boring online business ventures so I'm trying that. Nothing you'll see me promoting where people can often recognize my writing style.

I also want to try something new though. I'm not planning to finish my degree anytime soon but I am thinking about IT certs, specifically CCNA. I've done some cursory research and it seems to be in demand. That said, I'm far from convinced that it isn't just another scam. Network administration is not something I have any background in or knowledge of but I find it stimulating and I don't foresee any major problems learning the material.

I test pretty well and know how to take good notes. The tools are pretty intimidating for now but that is to be expected at this stage I think. Obviously I'll make sure I can pass multiple practice tests before I send Cisco their however many thousands of dollars it costs to test. I think this is the usual order of operations but I don't actually know that so I'm pointing it out anyway.

Does this seem like a good plan? Are certs a scam? Are all these companies listing CCNA as a job qualification on indeed getting kickbacks from Cisco? Are there additional qualifications required to be competitive in this industry that I'm overlooking? Are there any good "big picture" type resources on certs that don't have the off-putting moonboy energy? Everything I find via search engines makes me feel like I'm being tricked, but what do I know. Maybe education really SHOULD be left to the most soulless corp in town.

Thanks for the advice anon. I think I will start with Comptia A+ like you suggest. I had thought that it was just basic windows stuff and like, how a computer works but looking over the material I see that there's also some remote management stuff that I don't already know. Is there a study guide you would recommend?

 No.10969

>>10968
I don't know shit about the subject and I'm not the other anon, but:
1. Certifications have a ton of bullshit. Just like college degrees. But employers want to see you have that paper.
2. It is foolish not to "hack" standardized tests, meaning that at some point, you should study for the certification test specifically, not necessarily the skills. If you are confident you can pass and your final grade is not important, then maybe ignore this point. Remember it for the future though.
3. Torrents have lots of certification material. There might even be previous years tests.
4. When you switch careers, you'll be low balled. Don't get discouraged, use an entry job to gain experience. You want to switch jobs whenever you stop learning; go for a higher paid job. 1.5 years no more than 3 years, find a better job.

Be patient and persistent.

Thank you! I wholeheartedly agree. I aced the SAT by doing pretty much what you say: studying the test itself rather than the material and taking older exams.

A spook is a concept that becomes fixed in a person's mind as a thing that is greater than themself (eg. morality, law, nationality, humanity, religion, etc.) It floats around in their head, "spook"ing them into doing dumb shit that is contrary to their own interests. Its a translation of the German word "Spuk" from Max Stirner's book Der Einzige und sein Eigentum. Could more accurately be translated as "phantasm."

When i say society i mean material society, not society the concept. What makes a spook different than a valid, internal value?

Can you show that individuals are only bound and not empowered by the outside entity? Also, is an entity external when it's been taken internally and expresses itself in all relevant ways within the consciousness of the individual?

Seeims like a compatriot has done already a video series
(Dammit, looks like only the 1st and 3rd have subs)
1:Inca civil war, Pizarro's first contact
2nd: Toledo's capitulation (The king recognize him as governor) Pizarro arrives at a barren land and does a little barring himself. not subbed
3/4rd: The meeting/ battle / capture of Cajamarca.
5th: Atahualpa's prison and meetings with the conquistadors, the cell of gold and two of silver for his freedom. The truce, and the death of Huascar. Ruptures between Pizarro and Almagro. Distribution of the spoils
6th: Death of Atahualpa ruptures in the conquistadors about if executing the Inca or sending him to Spain, for and while a plot to liberate him by his generals by attacking is foiled, the Inca is trialed
He was convicted of Treson, usurpation, tirany, regicide, fratricide, adultery, poligamy, incest and heresy
He appeals to Pizarro, promising to give more gold or more royal hostages, he converts to avoid being burned (since having the body for mummification and reverance was a great part his religion), is given the name of Francisco and is killed by garrote vil while the priest recited a Psalm
In the end there was no army nearby, so Pizarro is berated by his officer Hernando de Soto for not sending him to Spain to the court of Charles V
Again, this instance of a inca king being murdered repeats with Tupac Amaru I, killed and when the vicerroy goes back to Spain the King of Spain berates him: "Go home, I sent you to Peru not to kill kings but to serve them". Pizarro doesn't have that end, nor going back by diying in the conquistadors civil war

have a primary objective, and work back form there, in a way consistent with your conditions.

Like you have a goal, turn that into a plan. A plan has steps to reach the goal. This plan should be based on the reality of your abilities and some operating theory of how stuff works. From there, work on how to meet each step of the plan, and think about what could happen to have your plan change.

This is just off the top of my head though like basic logic, read anything here to have specific ideas. Knowledge comes from experience. But it seems like your problem is a total lack of a coordinated plan, because if you have a plan at all then it's a matter of cutting it into smaller and smaller levels of detail until it can direct your immediate action, then acting on that.

I was reading about the Crimean war and I came across the "The Will of Peter the Great" a fake testament attributed to Peter the Great, which laid out his plans for Russian domination of the Middle East and Continental Europe, but was written by a Polish general and was cited by Napoleon, the Nazis, and US during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, even Marx believed it was an actual thing, it reminded me a lot of Elders of Zion shit, so it got me thinking, other then these two are there any other list of forged fake plans for world domination? I'd love to take a long day to sit back and read about them, cause while shchitzo nationalists texts are funny in a way, I think deliberately created false propaganda attributed to your more enemies are more interesting to learn about
