You got the gist of it. 1984 was a reaction to Orwell's own experiences in the British colonial police, as a propagandist for the BBC during WW2, and under the late 1940s Labour government. What most people (and evidently many American high school English teachers) don't understand is that the book has to be read as immanent to WW2. 'Newspeak' draws from an essay Orwell wrote on trends in British journalism. The longing for a half-remembered before time is not abstract and reactionary, but a concrete depiction of how WW2 imposed brutal austerity conditions on the British people. It's also a reaction to Fordism and the kind of obsession with a rationalized, efficient world that was common back then. We see this with "the clocks were striking 13"—they're on military time! It's a depiction of militarized efficiency cannibalizing all of society. The stuff about "we've always been at war with Eastasia"? That happened in 1945 when the war propaganda effort switched abruptly from focusing on Germany to Japan. Orwell was there when that happened, in the BBC. The book ends with Orwell giving up on, essentially, Blanquism and reformism and endorsing a proletarian revolution. It's a critique of the ideology behind British Imperial decline, of wartime social democracy, and of the contemporary trends that idolize that period.

>Read Orwell's Homage to Cataluña
>the explanation of the USSR influence goes like this:
<There were two major marxist parties in cataluña: 1) POUM, that did not align with the USSR, and claimed that the civil war and the revolution were inseparable. 2) PSUC, that aligned with the USSR, and claimed that only after the civil war was won, and bourgeois democracy was restored, that the revolution could go on.
<He is very skeptical of PSUC's position, and states that the USSR would not allow the revolution to go on because they needed stable allies, and revolutions bring about many things, but not stability.
The USSR had no way to solely support a socialist revolution. Instead, the USSR's strategy was to defeat fascism via a Popular Front that included communists, socialists, and liberals. From the POV of the Communists, the POUM was undermining the war effort by pushing for revolution instead of political unity. I'd also like to add that the militia system was retarded and the Communists were the only faction on the side of the Republic that resembled a real army.

Agree with >>19863
I thought it showcased how rotten and insane capitalism/capitalists is/are, and how powerless people are. It really drove the idea that no leader can really fix capitalism, and no scandal is big enough to make capitalism collapse.

Also that everything is manufactured, from AOC to heroes to wars to public outrages. The AOC bit was really prescient, she hadn't yet betrayed her constituency as blatantly and openly as she does now.

There's actually lots of meg teeth in the Berchem formation in Belgium. The way I find them is by sifting through soil, ex situ, so there's no way of telling if the vert and teeth belonged together. I think the molar is Equus caballus.

Not sure who here is into watches, but I really enjoy them as both time-capsules for the aesthetic sensibilities of a period as well as for craftmanship and engineering.
picrel is a Soviet made Raketa 'Big Zero' Khrushchev's favourite watch but heres some other interesting examples;

> Mao had an Omega pocket watch given by Zhou Enlai

> Che was often seen wearing a Rolex Submariner
> Fidel also favoured Rolex and would rock up to 3 timezones at a time (typically Havana/Moscow/Washington time)

Think it's worth mentioning that Rolex wasn't a luxury brand the way it is now and was more of a tool watch.
Anyway, show us what you got or just tell me fuck myself, whichever suits you

Here's a good review,
<I’ve been on a James Bond kick lately. So as the release of “No Time to Die” draws closer, I decided to check into buying one of the watches worn by the iconic super spy. But, a quick glance at the prices was enough to nix that operation.
<Vostok Amphibian
<Well, if I can’t afford a Bond watch, what about something that could have been worn by one of his Russian nemeses? Enter the $60-ish Vostok Amphibian, a Soviet timepiece released in the same year as the Connery classic “You Only Live Twice.” These watches are legendary for their oddball appearance and durability, backed by a legitimate diving pedigree.

Seeing how there’s multiple /co/ related threads on the board. I think we should just put all of them into one general just for clarity’s sake.

Discuss anything related to comics and animations from comic recs, leftist animations to comic writers’ attempts to larp as leftists.

How important was it for the soviets during ww2

 No.11778

I already made a massive effort post about this so there is no thread to really be had.
Please read https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=921020

TL;DR: Lend Lease was barely 4-10% of the Soviet war-effort, and the majority of it was delivered after the Battle of Stalingrad. The first deliveries didn't reach the USSR before the Battle of Moscow halted the German assault and pushed them back.

On top of that the majority of Lend Lease tanks and planes were inferior to both Soviet and German tech used, only the Studebaker truck and Aircobra were worth a damn.

On top of that was the fact that the main reason the Nazis had the power to even begin the war was because American, British and Continental European corporations actively supported Hitler up until 1941, with Rockafeller's Standard Oil helping refuel German Submarines up until mid 1942.

>inb4 Muh 1939-1940 Soviet-German trade pact

Soviet exports to Germany were 5th place in terms of amount and were only even that high because they got embargoed from their usual sources. The amount of Wheat the Germans got in trade from the USSR wasn't worth even a month of bread for the army and was less than 1% of Soviet food stocks. The USSR received thousands of pieces of machinery, equipment and military vehicles including a semicomplete ship of the line, the Lutzow, which took part in the war against the Germans.

The Nazis were also politically supported by the West throughout much of the war and prior to it, with Poland being a major part of this.
