I don't know if I am the only person here who knows what lokinet is, but, basically lokinet is an encryption service provider that acts like tor; tor in the sense that it encrypts your packets with multi-layer encryption and bounces them around through a series of relays.What makes it different is that it also acts like i2p in the sense that it also encrypts the encrypted packets in a secure SSL tunnel while bouncing them around making it truly anonymous.It's also a decentralized network of relays and nodes of which anyone can spring one up and become a part of and on top of that you can use it as your default DNS provider meaning you can use this network as a vpn with out having to go through shady capitalistic datamines claiming to protect your data.The down side is it's small right now and not a lot of people use it. It's fast though.Furthermore, I can't seem to get the relays you need when you try to use lokinet as a VPN to work. I spoke with the staff on their IRC network and they told me the relays are down for those specifically.I don't know if they ever got them up.Does anyone else fuck around with lokinet on /tech/?Here's their IRC:irc.volatile.bz +6697 or +9999lolikaastbgo5dtk.onion +6697 or +9999

>>510No you CAN connect to the outernet which is why it's so amazing, because, it also uses secure tunneling on top of onion routing; all ontop of a decentralized network.I just can't get the fucking thing to work as my fucking VPN so I can stop sending all my data to a random database.It's good shit though, anon.

So last night they where apparently doing maintenance on the network. It's back up and running now and giving me no issues.Follow this to get it set up. It's easy:https://docs.loki.network/Lokinet/Guides/RouteThroughExitNode/#1-lokinet-installationNext I will be attempting to route my traffic through one of their exit nodes:https://docs.loki.network/Lokinet/Guides/RouteThroughExitNode/

Who else spends his hard earned (or state given ;^) ) money frequently on commodity fetishes like M:tg cards? How is such behaviour to justify (there is no right living in the wrong)?One pal of mine tries to get me into his rpg-group, and I'm honestly thinking about it, even tough I don't have much interest anymore in high fantasy-rpgs.Any other non-vidya gamers around?

I prefer real games like Hearts, Rook, Rummy, etc. Collectible card scams so blatantly favor the [i]rich[/i] weak-willed that they can't seriously be considered games. Games that require one to "collect" the ruleset by buying individual pieces are disgusting examples of predatory capitalism. I'm surprised people don't compare Magic: The Gathering to the day-one purchasable DLC that video game enthusiasts despise so much.

>>329>I'm surprised people don't compare Magic: The Gathering to the day-one purchasable DLC that video game enthusiasts despise so much.But, they do? Day-one DLC can be anything, like strictly cosmetic things. DLC in single-player titles isn't the worst kind of DLC. The worst kind is when you have a competitive title and the DLC gives you an edge. The shittiness with Magic's business model is specifically that it's like that type of DLC, combined with gambling no less.What would be a "socialist twist" to collectible card games? [i]Caning.[/i] Perhaps going the opposite route. Adding extra cards to your basic set only makes you weaker, but if you win under these conditions, you can take a handicapping card from your opponent or something like that. These cards better be pretty. Or maybe we'll just rip off the existing concepts with the only difference that you can't buy the cards anywhere, instead kids get them for top grades or doing pioneer stuff.

>>331>pioneer shitI think by making a game out of merit badges one could really incentives participation. You could set up a points list where at each level you could save your points to redeem for higher level cards or spend them on lower items: in this way you could also implement some sort of lesson on the ltv.

>>329Traditional card games are boring as fuck though, part of the fun of MTG is the artwork, the story, and the increasing complexity of card effects and their interactions with each other. Although it won't ever fly in a store, I've had friends that build decks online and just print the cards out on regular paper and stick them into sleeves.

What should Education under a Leftist system look like? The current system obviously doesn't work as can be seen by the large amounts of dropouts and general scorn and dissatisfaction that is directed towards the system.I'm personally leaning towards the Sudbury Model of Education, essentially the government, school, and parents have no say in what is taught (preventing bias and the brainwashing type of education in modern public and religious schools).The school's rules as well as other actions are decided by a democratic "School Meeting" consisting of Staff members and the entire Student Population, each has an equal vote and the staff possesses no veto power. Meaning that the school is mostly run by the students, there is no curriculum and no classes, the students decide what to learn, how to do it, and can ask other students or staff for assistance if they wish.There are no divisions by age or skill meaning that younger students can interact with older ones at will and vice versa, allowing for older students to act as big brothers/sisters to younger students giving them a chance to develop greater empathy and responsibility while giving younger students the ability to find mentors (that they can personally identify with, unlike the ones assigned under current mentor-ship or tutoring programs).It's worked very well already in the few schools that have tried it:[http://sudburyschool.com/content/sudbury-model-education][https://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2012/12/no-teachers-no-class-no-homework-would-you-send-your-kids-here/265354/]What would be other good ideas and ways to reform the current system?

They need people to tell them what to do and what not to do, and if need be punish them if they misbehave.

Hi anons.What are some good podcasts about marxist economic theory?I don't give a fuck about racism, troons being troons, philosophy, political science or Adorno's aesthetics.I want to study marxist economics, not radlib bullshit.Here are some I particulary enjoy:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh2UY1hxlMr4_7Az_iQ82HQ/videos (mostly news unfortunaly)https://www.youtube.com/user/RichardDWolff/videos (econ profesor)

Chapo Trap House, while not specifically focusing on Marxism, is effective at pointing out the hypocrisy of capitalism and imperialism. I think they'd make a good introduction into leftism in general. They do seem to jerk off over Bernie a bit too much for my taste but otherwise I have to say their analysis is on point. https://soundcloud.com/chapo-trap-house
