An anon a while back recommended Star Trek to me because it was the most "communist" media produced in capitalist society. All Captain Kirk does is hop from planet to planet and fuck space bitches. Is there communism or have I been memed? Apparently the director of the show was influeced by Posadism but outside the aliens I do not see gommunism anywhere in the show.

I watched the first episode. It has such an amazing sense of dread and atmosphere. It's incredible, meticulously done. And that makes it all the more frustrating that so much of it is dedicated to racist, chauvinist anti-Sovietism. The real tragedy in the series is the waste of talent that went behind creating it.

Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!"
Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes?
The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

Honestly the ending of this movie to me seems to suggest that proletarian martyrdom is a preferable outcome than simply replacing the porky or just giving in to capitalism.

If you interpret the train as capitalism (imo this interpretation is far more complete and meaningful than interpreting the train as the state, or more specifically, the engine as the state) then what Wilfred is doing at the end is simply replacing the capitalist of the enterprise. Giving it to Curtis, so Wilfred ceases being the capitalist but the train continues going as normal. Imagine a scenario where Curtis actually accepts this. It would be an extremely crude ending but it would realistically showcase that the vast majority of people would switch their positions immediately if their class interests changed.

The reason why I think interpreting the train/engine as the state is kind of ineffective is because the train is supposed to represent unsustainability. It won't exist forever and the people that believe and teach this (the teacher in the kindergarten scene for example) are delusional, basically an allegory for capitalist realism. Also, interpreting the train as a state is simply too convenient for what this movie is trying to go for, it basically suggests that by killing Wilfred (proletarians seizing the "state") they can run the train according to their interests. But why would the repressive forces and de facto allied classes of the bourgeoisie allow this? Will the guards and crowd of drug addict lumpens now bow down to Curtiss and his people? No they won't, because by killing Wilfred Curtiss doesn't actually gain anything. He's not in control of anything. This is the opposite situation of workers seizing state power, because "controlling" the train (by killing its "owner") isn't a comparable situation to taking state power.

This is why the train as capitalism interpretation works so much better. Here it actually makes sense that Wilfred is passing ownership of the train to Curtiss, because he's expecting (correctly) that if Curtiss seizes the train, he can only run it the same way Wilfred has been running it the whole time. If he attempted any radical change the repressive forces of the train and other classes would oust him.

Also this interpretation also works because of the relation between the train, the classes, and the resources in the train. If the train had unlimited resources, there would be no reason to dive the train iPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>If anything humanity would perish much quickly if the resources of the train are spread much more evenly.
You fucking porky bootlicker kill your self. If resources were spread more evenly, humans could solve all their ecological problems. Capitalists think that their wealth will make them invulnerable to ecological crisis, that fixing it has low priority. in new-speak: they don't see them self as stake-holders of the ecosphere. Industrial society is crazy powerful. The only reason, and i mean that literally, there is no other reason, why we can't deal with ecological problems is because wealthy capitalists that hoard the means of production, don't deem it to be in their interests to solve it.

>he is unironically doing gods work with helping losers get on their feet
Most of his useful advice is the same shit you'd find in any self-help book, I'm not exaggerating. The difference is he dresses it up in references to philosophy and positive psychology so people who think they're above self-help books think they're engaging in something deeper and more intellectual instead, and of course, he makes sure to tie self-improvement to right-wing politics in a way that seems inextricable to his listeners. No, he is unironically doing terrible work and it's worth attempting to discredit him whenever possible (which needless to say, this comic does not do).
>Sure, it is, but isn't it better for pathetic losers to be pathetically brought back into actual society in a cringey way, rather than to let them wallow in their failure and ruin their lives?
Yes, I agree. These people need help. But we shouldn't be convinced that the only useful help they can get is also one that indoctrinates them into conservatism.

not really, marijuana is basically weeds (the kind you have to remove from your vegetable garden), it grow pretty easily. A better soil will still give better result ofc.

I mean, sure, but dont expect a crazy productivity
> How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool?
plenty of resources for this too, but first let me tell you, the leaf is not what you wanna smoke, its the buds (of unfertilized female)
the first step will be drying them

This book is from the creator of Youjo Senki about trying to keep Yugoslavia together. I know Yugoslavia isn't really socialist but from the point of view of the author I feel it is and wonder how he chose to write about it considering the popularity of his other work among the right. Would be cool if someone translated it (I could rip the book for them if they are unable).

Anyway, general socialist fiction thread!

It sacrifices content for form, it's cool that every panel looks like an expressionist painting but they crammed the 360+ pages of story in the original into like 50 in the remake (understandable since the publication got cancelled due to pissing off the government and the writer being kidnapped not long after) IMO you should only read it if you really liked the original and want to see an alternate take on it.

I wouldn't call them 'political cartoons' as much as political statements in cartoon, but is Bill Watterson a socialist, or a cryptosocialist?

Bill Watterson definitely recognizes the sad realities of capitalism, but only ever in a jaded way. hell of a dark thinker considering the lightness of his medium.
