It's you.



They are just taking the average ratings. Among US advocates for electoral reform this is called Range Voting. The only new thing (though even this is debatable since I don't know everything) is that the voting scale goes not from zero to something positive or is symmetric with positive and negative, but it goes zero to very negative. From a mathematical point of view, this is completely irrelevant. With strategic voters it works out the same (they will only use the most extreme ratings). But it might make a psychological difference.

You could do much, much worse than using average ratings. But this text appears very superficial and misleading. First of, outside of the writings of these authors the word consensus means something else. Almost any voting method in use prevents that an option A wins whenever there is an option B that Pareto-dominates A, that is B is preferred by at least one person while nobody prefers option A to B. In that sense, consensus methods are used everywhere. But saying you "use consensus" refers to the more restrictive idea (which doesn't scale well) that literally nobody in the group is against the decision.

And second, the "analysis" of strategic voting is hilarious. Some little kids tried to be strategic and it didn't work out for them this one time, so strategy doesn't matter… SERIOUSLY?






>But it might make a psychological difference.
I think this is the key, it's less about the mechanics of it than it is how people use/understand them. It also, imo, communicates better in that "What is the least you're willing to tolerate to get X" tends to get people begrudgingly "consenting" (rather than consensus) to a few options. They feel as though they at least were heard legitimately (and so tended to go with the decision and support it even if disagreeing with it), at least that's the feedback I've received from trying it.

fwiw I've used a variant of this + Paul Cockshott's + Wobblies stuff to facilitate extremely tight and effective meetings and organising efforts. Not because "it's new", but rather because to enough people it's seen as a "renewed" and "direct" (no representatives, just delegates and working groups who action the decisions in order of "consent").

Also I just like it can be done with hands, digital, paper, etc.

Also it works good in a spreadsheet or their own website:

anyone have a PDF of this?


DP Chattopadhyay - Lokayata, a study in ancient Indian materialism
Pretty interesting history book by a Marxist historian, and a good response to people who think humans(especially Indians) are inherently spiritual, or that religion will always be with us.


PDF's of some communist theory, along with links to lulu.com for print-on-demand copies




I just removed the DRM from these PDFs myself. Someone upload them to libgen if you know how.



Since no one did it, I decided to do it myself.
This is my first time doing something like this so bare with me.


one book on the great leap forward, another on the cultural revolution. one on the naxalites. i got a book with a collection of economic papers by Neurath, the guy who came up with calculation in kind.


the other is a giant fucking encyclopedia on anti-imperialism i picked off the internet a while ago.


There has been a second edition in 2021.


thank you comrade!
i have the pdf of the newer one but post the older one on accident lol.


too add to the thread, here is Samir Amin's critique of the concept of "underdevelopment" instead of the reality of over-exploitation. the title of Amin's book "imperialism and unequal development" speaks for itself.


I Love you comrade
