I'm a college dropout in burgerland, and I would like to improve my understanding of math, which was my worst subject in academia. Does anyone here have any suggestions or resources for someone who only speaks English, but would still like to do better than American schooling? Assume that I stopped learning math in 6th grade, or 9th grade for geometry in particular.

Serge Lang and Professor Leonard


I recommend studying this. It is geometry for high school students with a focus on proofs and reasoning. Do all the exercises, they can be frustrating but are very satisfying to solve. This should give you a very solid foundation of mathematical thinking. Calculations can be drilled but this is the real shit.


All math past middle school is over glorified algebra


> Analytical Math
Solve Physics problems, progress up to like Goldstein mechanics (or the equivalent grad textbook for what you are interested in)
> Theoretical Math
Number theory into a modern cryptography book

Anything else is toy problems not worth solving

Embed related by StormCloudsGathering is a pretty good short documentary on 9/11 and its impact. This dude does a lot of good videos, such as his stuff on the Odessa Massacre and Ukrainian ATO.

9/11 Senior intelligence officers:
#1). Daniel Ellsberg, former military analyst and famed whistleblower said that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is "far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers". He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11. And he said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that "very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been", that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of the current administration, and that there’s enough evidence to justify a new, "hard-hitting" investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath.
#2). Raymond McGovern, a 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials said "I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke", and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job.
#3). William Bill Christison, a 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA’s Office of Regional and Political Analysis said "I now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe. … All three [buildings that were destroyed in the World Trade Center] were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11."
#4). Lynne Larkin, a CIA Operations Officer who co-chaired a CIA multi-agency task force coordinating intelligence efforts among many intelligence and law enforcement agencies sent a joint letter to Congress expressing their concerns about "serious shortcomings," "omissions," and "major flaws" in the 9/11 Commission Report and offering their services for a new investigation (they were ignored).
#5). David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilianPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

9/11 was a peak Spectacle:
There is unironically a great essay to be written on the continuity of spectacle that was 9/11 to the invasion of Iraq. it's a type of spectacle we'll never see again - just as every war will falter by comparison to WW2, any terrorist attack short of an anime-style colony drop is going to falter by comparison to 9/11, and any pre-war propaganda effort falter by comparison to Iraq. the archivist can take great pleasure in looking at the events through the early-ish eyes of the mass-user internet, while at the same time seeing the concentrated nonsense that television and newspapers were spewing out in much greater quantities as people put their tapes up on YouTube.

The nature of the spectacle has changed infinitely since September 11th, 2001. it would not be the event it is today if people were live-tweeting before they jumped, if instead of limited communication networks being utterly overwhelmed by an unexpected event, you had the horror-deluge of the modern web. if instead of a smattering of iconic TV footage you had an infinity of phone-camera footage? it's redundant to ask: that is a timeline we'll never be privy to.

A submission for those who've not seen it: archive of 9/11 happening in realtime on Something Awful. http://www.truegamer.net/SA_911/911%20SATHREAD/

Also the resulting counterculture (Green Day for example) had been a phenomena in itself.

Journalists uncovered the identity of the agents who blocked sharing of information with the FBI about the location and intent of the 9/11 hijackers in the week leading up to 9/11. They discovered correlation and funding links between the CIA and 9/11 hijackers going back to the early 90s, and the day before publishing it in 2011 they were threatened with espionage charges if they were to publish the names(muh free speech!). The same day the names were confirmed and published by whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, who claims that 9/11 and the wars in the middle east are part of "Operation Gladio B" that replaced Gladio after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Hey /edu/ bros, I'd like to find out if there are any books on Soviet history from historians in the USSR that an English speaker could read? I know there's Trotsky's history of the revolution, but I'm looking for something more comprehensive, covering at least up until the Khrushchev period, if possible. I feel like when people argue about Soviet history, we always toss around names like Conquest, Applebaum, Kotkin, Getty, Tauger, and yes even the dark lord of history Grover Furr, but the only Russian historian I see often on here is Zemzov, but I only know him from graphs and citations. Would very much appreciate feedback, thanks.

nice story, don't care. your problem, lol.

there probably no publications written by soviet historians about the soviet union that were translated to english. either that or they are very rare. you might ask Ismail, the former admin of /marx/

The only photograph of the surface of Venus is still from the Soviets. Looks like a land devastated by nukes. They even record the sound from the surface. There's a lot of thunderous sound, very spooky.
For anyone wondering
Surface photo : https://www.space.com/18551-venera-13.html
Sound recording : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jZDW53U8qQ
Note: I only able to found the sound recording on youtube. I don't know if its the legit one though, I heard a different sound record by Venera 14 while watching a documentary about Venus by Discovery Channel. The real one doesn't sound that clear, it's more like a thunder sound made by electronic equipment from the 80s. Imagine it like a thunder sound in Mario Bros game.


An additional video made in supplement to this one - Overview of soviet Space Flights in regards to the first Space Walk.


Haven't read (big one) but have heard it's THE book covering the Soviet side.

Alright so I've had a few interactions with people on /leftypol/ who seem to think that Dialectics means rejecting the Aristotelian law of non-contradiction. As far as I can tell this has no real basis in the work of Marx or Engels and is a good to not be taken seriously by anyone who understands logic or philosophy or mathematics. I was really confused about where this came from for a while. I have read Mao's "On Contradiction" many times and I suppose that text could be read that way, but I don't think that is what Mao meant by contradiction or "the unity of opposites". Last night though I read Leon Trotsky's "The ABC of Materialist Dialectics" and I think I've found my answer. In it, Trotsky straight up makes a case for why A=/=A, and does make a somewhat compelling argument until you examine it critically.

This piece is well written like most of Trotsky's work, but his argument is full of non-sequitors and general misreadings of Marx and Engels. I want to make this thread to do some comparing and contrasting between four texts in particular, but we can bring in other lit if people want. Those four texts are…

Anti-Duhring by Engels:

The ABC of Materialst Dialectics:

Dialectical and Historical Materialism:

On Contradiction by Mao Zedong:

Could cybernetics be a useful way to convert techbros to communism? STEMlords tend to be pretty technocracy-minded. Rationally planning the economy with computers might be a good bridge for them similar to how nazbol could be a bridge for rightoids.

Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the third and highest stage of communist theory, was synthesized in 1982 by the Peruvian Communist Party (known in bourgeois sources by the epithet "Sendero Luminoso").

>It is not easy to write an epitaph about Abimael Guzmán Reynoso (1934-2021). Because even though he capitulated and sold, for a plate of beans (or a cake), the revolutionary process that he himself initiated in 1980 in a very poor and forgotten village in the Peruvian highlands called Chuschi (where neither the State with its power groups, nor the pseudo-parliamentary left, ever reached nor will ever reach), one cannot deny his contribution to that unprecedented feat in Peru in the 80s and 90s. Nor can it be denied that he was a fundamental architect of the armed struggle carried out by the Communist Party of Peru (PCP): the most important project of radical transformation in the republican era of that country.

>Guzmán is owed three fundamental achievements in the revolutionary camp in Peru. The first is to have ostensibly influenced the party line, which applied Marxism-Leninism-Maoism to the specific analysis of Peruvian society. In the light of Marxist ideology (and braided to the path of Amauta, which he embodied in his masterpiece "7 Essays"), the PCP characterized Peruvian society as semi-feudal and semi-colonial, as well as tied to imperialism, mainly Yankee. The analyses of the PCP, as early as the 1970s, shed light on the social relations of production, power and property which were denied by the analyses of the right and the revisionist left.

>Guzmán's second achievement was to lead the reconstruction of a political-military organization; making it capable of leading an armed struggle from the countryside to the city, and following Lenin's principle of the party of cadres. The ideological formation, discipline and mystique of the cadres, militants and members of the Party, the Army and the Front, were central pillars of the advance of the PCP.

>His third achievement is to have led the PCP to initiate the armed struggle. The People's War led by this organization, until the end of the 1990s, was undoubtedly the greatest popular and revolutionary epic in the history of the republic. By the beginning of that decade, the armed struggle of the PCP had already spread ove

>Those workers (proletarians) in the developed countries who benefit from the superprofits extracted from the impoverished workers of developing countries form an "aristocracy of labor". The phrase was popularized by Karl Kautsky in 1901
I'm noticing this really is a recurring theme with Lenin, but I'll leave this for another thread…
>and theorized by Vladimir Lenin in his treatise on Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism. [b]According to Lenin, companies in the developed world exploit workers in the developing world where wages are much lower. The increased profits enable these companies to pay higher wages to their employees "at home" (that is, in the developed world), thus creating a working class satisfied with their standard of living and not inclined to proletarian revolution. It is a form of exporting poverty, creating an "exclave" of lower social class. Lenin contended that imperialism had prevented increasing class polarization in the developed world and argued that a workers' revolution could only begin in one of the developing countries, such as Imperial Russia.[/b]

By contrast, the definition within revolutionary syndicalism is that trade union bureaucracy, 'yellow unions', or social democratic unions were labelled 'labor aristocracy', (the IWW for example instead being a revolutionary industrial union, created within the orthodox Marxist theories of De Leonism).

This also implies that this imply that as places like China become more 'developed' and wages rise, wages will balance out between the developed/developing world and perhaps agitate the proletariat in developed countries to revolution?

>What is to be done as class-conscious proletarians of the developed countries if Revolution can only arise from developing nations, and those populations do not desire our adventurist migration there?
