The Black Book of capitalism Beta edition BBOCAnon 2022-11-27 (Sun) 17:24:51 No. 13769 [View All]
After three months of labor, I present you the current state of the translation project of the french Black Book of Capitalism from 1998.
The raw traduction is completed, the work is in the process of being proofread to enhance the general english level. So far two benevolent English speakers manifested their interest in this endeavour, one of them already corrected the Foreword and Introduction.
Gitea of the Black Book of Communism:
If you download the whole deposit and run it trough a Tex editor, a whole book appears! Credits to LaTex Anon for this magic
This thread will be used as a hub to update the progressively the book with the proofreader's input, but also to sketch the specification of an enhanced edition of the BBOC, as well as gathering material in this regard, because after a few more decades of neoliberalism, some updates would be welcome. Furthermore as some people remarked, the book is far from exhaustive.

I'm more gesturing towards the fact that they're already in the process of translating Vietnamese texts to English
>the USSR supplied weapons and advisers to the KMT
oof. but also what can you do

I would like to translate this to Portuguese once it's finished.

After some consideration I've decided against it but I know someone who might be interested in taking the job

While waiting for news from proofreaders of the BBOC, I'm considering translating Road to Revolution in french but I'm afraid I will bang my head against a wall when it comes to poetic parts.
Maybe I'll just stick to the meaning and add in footnotes that's poetry with rhymes and all in the original but it feels like a waste.

I just got that in french. I'll post it in the following.
I'll translate it in the next weeks. There should be stuff interesting for the enhanced edition and will kill time until I got news from proofreaders.

Actually, if I notice any minor spelling/grammar/typo issues, should I make a pull request to the git repo, or just post them here?
LaTeX Anon !cBWnNqbO3o 2023-01-16 (Mon) 01:28:38 No. 13883
if you know your way around git then it'll be easier if you just fix it immediately. I could give you push access to the repo if you like. undoing any bad commits is easy enough
also I just pushed some things I had laying around

Well it's better for the book to be error free. You can testify the accuracy of my claim by adding the number of errors you had to correct in this single sentence.

>>13886 >That's literrally what you do to birds before cooking them
I've been studying animal slaughter lately, and usually what you do is cut around the anus. you don't try to finagle the intestine out through it. once you've cut through the pelvic floor extracting the innards is easier. cutting up the abdomen is also a possibility, and it only leaves you with the sphincter and the last bit of intestine attached to it. not that you bother with that for fowl, at least not wild fowl, because almost all the meat is in the breast
now if the French were actually doing what I describe then that's even more heinous. because rather than a severe case of prolapse, you're cutting around the asshole. now I'm no torture expert but isn't the idea that the victim shouldn't outright die from it? there's some large blood vessels nearby, not to mention the chock alone is probably enough to do someone in. fucking frogs man

Fucking copyrighting bastards. The EU sucks. It's bad enough that z-library got taken away by the FBI.
>>13888 >fucking frogs man
Cannibalizing political prisoners was really prominent in colonial eras. The whole idea with deadly torture is instilling fear and obedience.

>atrocities of capitalism are just the consequences of natural human savagery, it is the norm, so we must blame the human condition >atrocities of socialism are the consequence of human meddling, a human-made, imposed idea, therefore it is the ideas themselves that are to blame How do you counter that without sounding like you're coping? I know that what we consider "normal", "natural", "the human condition", etc. is downstream from material conditions, but trying to explain to a normie that that their conception of reality itself is a product of capitalism makes you sound like a schizo.

ideal situation: register a user on git.leftypol.org and I can add you as a contributor. then just read, make any suitable changes to the relevant .tex files, git commit and git push. it'll be easiest if you use either a Debian-like OS or maybe WSL in Windows 10 can do it. you'll want the build-essential and texlive* packages. you use make to build the pdfs

it's also possible to just post any mistakes you notice in the thread and either me or someone else with push access can incorporate the fixes

Debt to Death, and that in e.g. NGOs in the third world loaning Micro Credit to those in Agriculture, creating a cyclical debt and general poverty leading to death. Google Micro Credit, NGOs and Bangladesh, Anu Muhammad has a good explanation on it, however no death statistics, you will have to search for evidence. Best of luck.

Combine the cover page and the document into a file with poppler pdfunite or imagemagick convert (with the appropriate density).

there's a bajillion ways of doing cover pages in LaTeX itself. you can also do it with some external program then use pdfjam to join it with other pdfs
I've had in mind to create a thread on the main board about this to try and drum up some proofreading interest again

Good plan imo, an update with initial version, plus notes oin what is to be done, would be cool :D

yeah. having proofreaders adopt a tripcode would be useful too I think
