So a buddy of mine works as a security contractor—Mall Cop or Night Watchmen tier stuff. Anyways, he's a Socialist, has a pretty materialist worldview, and has been a skeptic of most idealistic woo-woo for as long as I've known him.

Recently he's been experiencing some genuinely creepy stuff in one of the locations he's been assigned to, and apparently some of his coworkers have too. It started off with weird one-off occurrences: hearing footsteps running behind him only to turn around and see nothing there, hearing doors slamming open and closed on the floor above him, getting an experience of someone breathing behind him. Recently it's gotten a lot worse. He's experienced some strange hallucinations: a black dog running across his path and disappearing into a wall, figures looming over his shoulder or peaking at him from behind corners, and even strange figures staring at him from behind second-story windows. It's spooky stuff, he can't explain it, and neither can I. Not helping things are the weird occult graffiti at his workplace: pentagrams and stuff.

Everything from Ghost Hunting to Occult Philosophy has been a guilty pleasure of mine. And seeing as we don't have a thread on sp00ky shit, I figure I might as well make one.

Consider this the start of the /x/-files! A place to push the boundaries of Socialism to the outer limits of the universe. Everything from Ghosts to ESP to Magic or Cryptids and what their impact on the Socialist movement could be. Questions like:

>Do AyyLmaos exist and are they Comrades?

>Can we summon the specters of dead Revolutionaries for advice?
>Are the Bourgeoisie literally Demons?
>Can Occult rituals stir the global proletariat to action?
And so many more.

Hive Consciousness is upper stage communism

id say Spoiler alerts, but the series came out in the 1990s

In the episode of Star Trek: Voyager, “The Thaw” (season 2, episode 23), the crew of the voyager come across a planet destroyed by a solar flare, where some of the survivors are in suspended animation/stasis, their minds hooked up to a simulated reality. Some of the crew members enter the reality to find it is controlled by a sadistic clown, who it turns out was was the holographic manifestation of the fears of five individuals who were part of a linked neural network. The Clown was created by the sleeping colonists, and is a product of their minds, but at the same time has control over their lives and the ability to kill them at any time, all whilst keeping them alive and hostage in his demented virtual-reality circus. This is a can be interpreted as a metaphor for capitalism itself. In the Communist Manifesto, Marx says
>“Modern bourgeois society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells.”
Capital itself is like an organism, a hive-mind, a lovecraftian entity which’s only goal is to survive whilst vampircally subsisting off humanity, much like “the clown”.

Hive Minds

When the question of incentives and higher stage communism comes up. Marx comes from the tradition (partly) of continental philosophy, where, from the tropes of the ancient philosophers, from the Stoics to Plato, and the neo-platonists, to Spinoza, to Hegel, there is no evidence that Marx ever abandons or disavows a monist ontology. Being is a sigma-monad, simultaneously both being and in the process of becoming. There is a reason capital is analyzed holistically, rather than a mere collection of individual parts, but unlike rationalist-monists like Spinoza and Hegel, Marx sees the one being in material terms. Unlike in eastern religions where separateness is a spiritual illusion, Marx contextualizes this in both time and space, as part of the historical-epoch of capitalism. The idea that we are all separate beings with competing interests is part of the false consciousness of the proletariat.

I've seen/known people who've seen and experienced weird stuff as a child. I grew up in a hispanic neighborhood where the richest family on the block were members of an esotericist cult. They got out of it, we all put up portraits of the virgin mary, it stopped.
Very interesting post. It's worth it to, at the very least, examine the layered nuances of material effects which create that which appears to go beyond what we'd traditionally call materialism.


Occultism is always counter-revolutionary. Always.


Anyone seen this show yet?
It’s been dropping Marxist theory in it.

It got posted in siberia and was moved here.


Should have stayed there, the thread is frankly speaking, shite.


It’s not too bad.


By the standards of posts in the alt-boards it's awful.


Eh, I’ve seen worst.


there should be a Heat-like movie about the 1907 Tiflis Bank Robbery that Stalin/Lenin and other Bolsheviks organized, which was carried out for the purpose of securing funds for the RSDLP.

I had a similar idea abt adopting hot fuzz into either cultural revolution china or after another anon's input two bolsheviks fighting kulaks. Communist history would be full of great material for on the nose agitprop action movies. The tiflis bank robbery would be a great action movie and would probably lend itself nicely to something similar to heat or the early fast and furious movies

I'll admit I hate Marvel films, first off they're some of the glowies films out there, every single one fellates the Pentagon. The plots are almost all identical, filled with general pro-porky propaganda. The jokes are overdone and stale, literally Adam Sandler humor. The CIA is shit for such expensive productions. The characters are getting stale. Fuck these movies, death of cinema shit piles.

I will bite the bait. That isn't fat. Not everyone has the body of a supermodel.


>Fatties detected. Opinion discarded
This sites fucking trash now. Some light fat shaming and my post gets deleted. Fucking bullshit site should be renamed to sjwpol


Why is MCU so absolute boring shit now? I remember being excited to watch Marvel films up to the first Avengers and then after that the fatigue quickly set in. The only MCU films I've had any interest in were the Spiderman ones. Why is everything so same and boring and shit?

Actually no I actually watched the Raimi Dr Strange film and enjoyed it because it was so batshit which is what I expected from Raimi.


I was being sarcastic you fat fuck


Super is weirdly apocryphal the main character is literally a chinletjak. Its the most realisitic super hero movie imho since its just a schizo christofascist who doles out unnecessary violence on lumpenproles until the end where they face off with actual organized criminals and sidekick literally gets there head blowed off. I didn't like the ending at all and thought it was a forced happy ending. Its a weird ass movie but viewing as a satire on /pol/yp LARPers is pretty funny

What do you think about tv show mr robot? I like how it shows mental health problems like social anxiety and alienation. However the "anti-capitalist" message is pretty condensed. It basically says a revolution would do more harm than good and it makes audience passive.

Thought it was fun.
Only big criticism was that hacker man doesn’t go full revolution mode. I get the idea is that individual action can’t really do much without broad support behind it, but it would have been cool to see him build it. The main villain being a Chinese minister was also really strange. It wasn’t exactly painting China in a bad light because the minister is more of an egotistical traitor to the government, but narratively it feels confused. It was far from perfect but I still say it was more entertaining than 90 percent of the shows that were on TV at that time and at least, clumsily, attempted to look at problems in class society.


I liked it, both story and tech wise


Intriguing show about 2 very tortured people (rami malek and the swedish guy)


I could have sworn this series had a thread here before, but I was apparently mistaken


There was one a while back in siberia, I think

Tho' of course the materialist explanation won't change, regardless of which low life did the murder. The old studio systems paternalism was bad enough, but it was a Harvey Weinstein "casting couch" type of sexual exploitation. When this broke down crooks and pimps had more opportunities.

What would the glamour industries look like under communism? How many people do temp work while hoping for their big break ,which never comes? I reckon there'd be more artists, but working on a smaller scales.
Like more rep theatres, local garage bands, local history/writers groups, those sorts of thing.

Is there anything more annoying than cheese fans?
They never shut up about how "trad" and "cheesepilled" they are and refuse to eat anything without covering it in so much cheese that it overwhelms the flavour of everything else in meal.
<I'm only eating that if you make it into a cheese sandwich
<I'm only eating that if you grill cheese onto it
<I'm only eating those if you put small chunks of cheese on them
<I'm only eating that if you cover it in grated cheese
<I'm only eating them if you put cheese sauce on them
<I'm only eating that if you put cheese in the bun with it
And I could keep going with more examples but you get the idea, the most infuriating part is they only like cheese because they think it's "trad" since it's been around so long.
I bet that if cheese had only been invented a few weeks ago they would claim to hate it and say they're sticking with bread or some other food that's old enough to appear in the bible.

I watched Heidi and Anne of the Green Gables as a child with my parents but I don't remember anything. Are they good? Should I watch it?


They're certainly classic films and stories and I enjoyed them and still enjoy them, however they may not be your cup of tea, depending on what your tastes are.

don't forget his "ulcer" in spain and his failed attempt to return slavery to haiti. Napoleon was only successful in modernizing France's law code.


joaquin phoenix is roughly the age napoleon was in the events depicted: late 40s


Just more anti napoleon poopaganda thanks once again to the eternal anglo


You believe that napoleon was good? Why?


he killed a lot of anglos, castillians, and prussians

File: 1689899835820.jpg (107.75 KB, 676x1000, hotfuzz.jpg)


imagine picrel but its the maoist adaption with basically the exact same plot but instead of two cops its two red guards in rural china fighting countertrevolutionaries and maybe nicholas gets sent there cuz of the down to the countryside movement, the villains literally would be the same. that shit would be so fucking fire


Maoist Cultural Revolution era Red Guard Hot Fuzz is the movie that I never knew I wanted but now that I am aware of the idea will finish the rest of my life is a depressive state knowing it will never be made.


The problem with this premise is that hot fuzz is about the fascistic character of the rural petit bourgeois, reactionary nature of traditional 'communities', gladio stay-behind networks, etc. being confronted by and dismantled by the liberal state apparatus.
The counterrevolutionaries and reactionaries the red guards were fighting were not in the countryside, they were in the city, in the party headquarters.


funny film


perhaps we switch the setting to soviet russia and its two bolshleviks and the bad guys are just straight up kulaks like you said state apparatus targeting rural petit bourgeois and there fash pals expect the state apparatus are communist this time
