Any good books on the events of May '68? Hopefully from a modern day perspective. Documentaries are also welcomed.

I was looking into The Imaginary Revolution: Parisian Students and Workers in 1968 by Michael Seidman, but couldn't find any pdfs, so if you have one that you could share that'd be great.

Hello anons, as you could guess from the title of the thread my question is:
Assuming Marx's LTRPF is true, in a moment in which low profitability gives birth to crisis can't the government (acting in an MMT framework) simply act to employ the unemployed with good wages thereby raising in this way demand for consumer goods and then the rate of profit via price increases? Or is there something am i missing?


personnaly, I think that one big limitation to this may be natural ressources (or its lack of).

I don't think marx thought of that, as states were at his time in history, not at the size (or economic power) they have now

I know asking this is futile due to how comprehensive it is, but what are some good philosophy books to get a well rounded education on Philosophy? It could be anywhere from college introduction textbooks to actual works.

inb4 start with the greeks!


Does anyone have documents showing any historical inaccuracies or other inaccuracies in "Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat."

Nuclear War Survival Skills is supposed to be the best civil defense manual out there. PDF attached.

An apartment building with a subbasement should be good enough, and most 60s era buildings usually had an area that was designed to be used as a fallout shelter, and even though most public fallout shelters have been decommissioned and the supplies have expired and been thrown away and the room repurposed, the rooms or areas themselves are usually still there and their thick walls will protect you from radiation, you just have to bring your own supplies.

To bring up my back ground before getting into the topic at hand. I am a historian and have been interested in seeing how we humans throughout history cope with deadly diseases. As we have seen in recent times of deadly diseases, such as the "spanish" flu, ebloa, sars, etc.

Now to focus on thentopic, humans throught hidtory tend to personify diseases. One of the best examples woth the related pictures are from the bubonic plague. Where medieval artists would cope with the death by creating personfications of the plague. This is what intrests me is why do we cope with the death by making into a person? I would like to hear from some of you on this, for its an interesting subject.


I don't have any social studies or history background, but I think it's related to the mortality of a human being, thus it's easier to see its end than imagining the end of something we can't even see. I don't have anything to back that up tho.

You just wanted to make a topic about corona-chan didn't you, admit it.


There is already a thread about that on /GET/ already and lets be honest. This is only but another example of what I am trying to tall about. Because during the internet age we have been making art of things like the ebola or now the corona virus. I wanted to have a discussion about why we personify these deadly dieases as we did throughout history.

This might be the case, I wonder what makes us as humans feel more at ease being able to see the virus as a humanoid. I know from what happened in the mid 14th century with the black plague it drastically changed the world in those five years it lasted. Art changed showing the depiction of death, as a sort of comforting thing.

Can someone give me a break down of the decolonization. What is it, how it is a class, and how it functions.
I'm not interested in the efficacy of it, so this isn't a political question.
What rationalizations are there for it, i.e. why is it important to the left.
The whole world was colonized and I think there is still a deep material historical legacy to it. So I'm trying to better understand what it is in the modern sense.


There's an effort post in the Australian general you may find interesting >>500363


I think you meant


Yes, thank you

File: 1608528005903.jpg (181.32 KB, 646x900, Kautsky Portrait - 1906ish.jpg)


Post works which you think should be translated into English here.

I'll start: I'm shocked that Karl Kautsky's history of the French Revolution (Die Klassengegensätze von 1789) has never been translated into English. Lenin, Trotsky, and other Bolshevik theorists all had an extensive knowledge of the French Revolution, and Kautsky, the "Pope of Marxism" would presumably have had an immense influence. This work was approved by Engels himself, and may have been foundational in establishing the Marxist theory of bourgeois revolution, yet it has never been translated into English.

Can you list those translated works?



I could pirate the following ebooks as they have an kindle version if anybody is interested

"The Woman Priest: A Translation of Sylvain Marechal's Novella, La femme abbe"

"The Woman Priest: A Translation of Sylvain Marechal's Novella, La femme abbe"

"The Permanent Guillotine: Writings of the Sans-Culottes"

"The Great Anger: Ultra-Revolutionary Writing in France from the Atheist Priest to the Bonnot Gang"


>The Great Anger
This one is available online, I got it from the Marxists archive.
>The permanent guillotine
That sounds based, would be interested in it


Not to discourage anons from their work here, but I think messageboards are better suited than imageboards for this, because of a more responsive structure for projects and better formatting options. A forum I recommend is leftypol.org even though it's currently not very active, but that shouldn't negatively affect the integrity of this project if others share their attention to both platforms.

I recently finished reading Capital Volumes 1 and 2 for the first time (took me around 3 weeks) and I feel like I only got around 50-70% of it, is this normal?
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I think its pretty normal especially when you read as quick as you dont worry about it read some secondary literature or something else and come back to capital later


Nice! Look forward to your post on volume 3 if you decide to read it.


Capital is something you can go back through. How much other marxist theory did you read prior to starting Capital?


>took me around 3 weeks
you read too fast. since you read so fast just re-read them and take notes this time.


I've read many of the main ML texts, off the top off my head:

Socialism Utopian and Scientific
Value, Price and Profit
Principles of Communism
Marxism and the National Question
State and Rev
Left Wing Communism
The Civil War in France
Wage Labour and Capital
Right of Nations to Self-Determination
On Contradiction
Anarchism or Socialism

Do you consider a united India to be possible? If not, why so?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


No. Indians and Pakistanis hate each other too goddamn much.


>united, secular India during WW2
damn. i can't even imagine this alt-history


There was a prominent commander of a womens regiment in the INA who became a communist after the war.




Only because of Britain's partition.
