Mark Fisher said the alien was neoliberalism


how is metropolis fascist?


>Starship Troopers
I mean, it's a parody of fascism, but that does not make it communist.
>Blade Runner
Those things are more like techno-accelerationist Nick Land type of stuff, can be communist, but isn't necessarily. Also, very implicit Zionism in the Matrix triology.
How? Because of big evil corporation?

Might as well, John Carpenter is a crypto-Marxist.

I agree.

That a very anti-materialist understanding of Grave of the Fireflies. You think every nazi soldier and government official and their families were executed in the GDR? Victims of propaganda are still victims.

Here are some of his USSR-oriented vids:

>What Happened To Giant Ekranoplans?



Every time Russia or the USSR try to one-up the US they always make a decent product with less funding. However trying to follow the US’ idiotic and profit driven designs is a stupid gambit destined to wasted resources that can be allocated somewhere else.
Hell, we’ve seen them failed at this already. In the 80s, the US under Reagan pumped out so many shit projects that forced the USSR’ R&D to go into overdrive. However the US can afford such a sink in funding but the USSR can’t, do they got ground to dust.
A better strategy is to just do what the PRC is doing now. Just have their spies steal US designs wholesale, skipping development entirely and make a few hundred copies with a fraction of the original price tag.


>the US can afford such a sink in funding
Ironically it couldn't, the USA itself has been feeling the impacts of this military spending for decades at this point.
Ah but Russia isn't the USSR, it's capitalist and makes good profit off of a private military-industrial complex, so a light stealth fighter half the price of an F-35 is a perfect opportunity to have mass produced contenders on the market to disrupt the USA's sales.
>have their spies steal US designs wholesale, skipping development entirely and make a few hundred copies with a fraction of the original price tag.
I find it funny how salty /pol/ can be about these kinds of things, given that China is being smart about this.
In regards to spending in the 80s, the percentage of the GNP that the USSR used was remarkably lower than that of the USA throughout the Cold War and even the 80s. The reasn Soviet R&D suddenly went off budget was because of Gorbachev's inane decisions that essentially threw money down the drain (such as the destruction of the Train ICBMs or selling of the navy to South Korean scrapyards.


>Ironically it couldn't, the USA itself has been feeling the impacts of this military spending for decades at this point.
Feeding it to the crumbling infrastructure, resolving healthcare and garbage public education yes. However the Soviet back then even during the reign of pizzaman still had the government resources towards welfare, housing and the myriad of other aspects. This made them stalled and petered out much faster than the US. It’s one of the things that makes the Brezhnev administration the stagnant one. The west knows that they can have leeway in shoving shit down their people’s throat because any meaningful resistance got destroyed to even the the unions.
>it's capitalist and makes good profit off of a private military-industrial complex
True, the modern Russian oligarchy makes money hand over fist buy producing recycled Soviet designs. Like the Armata. But like selling a car, you have to have good PR or an army of shills to uncritically buy your stuff. So it’s better for them to produce new products to arm the army and sell the surplus old customers like MENA, India, DPRK, Belarus, Central Asia and Vietnam.
>I find it funny how salty /pol/ can be about these kinds of things, given that China is being smart about this.
Yeah, I don’t get it either. Didn’t they remember that the rise of the US as an industrial powerhouse was due to them stealing European inventions and selling them at a lower price as well. It’s literally how their beloved free market works.
>such as the destruction of the Train ICBMs or selling of the navy to South Korean scrapyards
Didn’t he also sell a warship to fucking Pepsi at one point or was that Brezhnev?


>petered out much faster than the US
Frankly, I think if they actually applied cybersyn (which was rising up in the 80s only for Gorbachev to crush it yet again, they might have won out in that regard.
>better for them to produce new products to arm the army and sell the surplus old customers
True, but they're running out of surplus and beginning to imitate the USA's policies of creating export models en masse for the market overall.
> US as an industrial powerhouse was due to them stealing European inventions
The most hilarious part is that capitalist countries continued to do so to one another throughout the 20th century

That was Khruschev, as part of Pepsi's bid to be the only accepted source of foreign pop-soda for the USSR.

>White Guilt
How is any of this White Guilt you twit? The link you posted is liberal nitpicky idpol analysis, what does that have anything to do with what was posted? Pointing out simple race/class war aspects in the movie =/= muh white guilt when it's not a 1:1 metaphor for today.
>Racism is dumb and bad but so is group guilt and ancestral guilt
No shit, Sherlock.

I mean wikipedia states "Corporatism" so I think I know what I meant. Corporatocracy = Corporatism
>What do you have against freedom
Nothing, I have something against vague ideological platitudes of libertarians who confused liberty with a carte blanche to do anything they want no matter how wrong it is.


>Also isn't Brazil basically a piece of neoliberal propaganda (muh road to serfdom / muh ebil civil servants coming for our freedums / muh dysfunctional byzantine bureaucracy)?
probably not considering the director and all


Why is Repo Men so underrated? It’s basically got forgotten overnight. The action is shit but the story is actually pretty damn decent.

What would an artist use RGB for, anyway?


Today I compiled Aseprite (first time I've done that) and I'm gonna try my hand at pixel art (I've actually tried it several times before, but didn't get far)
Why is it so hard for me? I guess it's just a matter of getting used to it.

Another commission done. Slowly I will save enough money to replace my 10yo laptop, buy a safe box where I could store valuables and start collecting rare coins and medals that I always wanted. My life never looked so bright before. I have had 3 commissions in the queue but unfortunately one of the 3 guys dropped out today, if I were faster I could get his money. It's extremely hard and tiresome to work with +30C temperature at home and with no air conditioner to cool you, though I am proud that I have more commissions than free time.

Tbh I liked it at first but imo Rick is too much of an unlikable sociopath, Jerry is too pathetic, the show comes off as simultaneously too self-important and too mocking of its fans who overrate it.
Nonetheless it's overrated with absolutely autistic fans, and the whole sechzuan debacle, my God….

Dead thread, but did you come up with that or read it somewhere? I thought I coined the phrase.


Lots of people have thought about it before, anon.
But I came up with "Ricky Martin" in Spanish.


Didn't the creator fire like half their crew when they threatened to unionize and replaced them with Sarkeesian level "we come to filter out your ingrained misogyny" diversity hires?


yes and coincidentally the show began going into the toilet right after


Yep. Justin Roiland doesn't even work on it technically, he's busier on his personal projects.
These latest seasons are all Dan Harmon and it shows.

It’s a hothouse industry filled to the brim with petit bourgeois douchebags. Both the failing and successful restaurants have overbearing owners that abuse their workers while paying them terribly.
The worst part is that competitive cooking shows actually glamorize these bastards. Take Gordon Ramsay himself, the image of him in his cooking shows is entirely removed from his real management of his restaurant chain. It’s always mired in worker abuse, shit pay, and using inferior ingredients yet the fucker dares to use this to criticize other shittier owners. The point is not doing those things is bad as a small scale porky, the point is doing it with terrible PR is bad.


The Food Channel stopped being educational, and started game shows. The Game Show Network was an entire channel that showed nothing but game shows. I like to cook personally, and the game shows with cooking as it's theme turn me off. My favorite celebrity chefs really are Julia Child and Jacque Pepin because 100% of their programs were educational.


How to eat healthy? There are so many conflicting opinions about it online I feel completely lost.


Learn to enjoy veggies. Simple as. Salad wih ranch, cheesy broccoli, squash casserole, cutting carrots into ramen noodles… get creative and spice up your healthy foods a little. But most importantly, get your body to crave it. Eat enough healthy food, and your body will recognize that it wants and needs the vitamins inside… you'll get hooked because your body will beg you to eat vitamin rich and nutritious food.


Sounds like hell. The industry just shouldn't exist.

I read up one of the judges of Top Chef and he apparently was sued for wage theft and had to settle out of court

And the guy with the communist shirt I posted? A conservative republican
Why would they be wearing that shirt then, I didn't think there were ironic right wing hipster

How exactly is the Borg episode canon-breaking? It ties in well. VOY is far more canon-breaking when it comes to the Borg. It's a good stand-alone episode, it did not feel like fan service.
>I guarantee you nobody who disliked Enterprise followed the Shran arc all the way through or watched season 4, particularly the Kir'Shara arc and the Babel arc. They really tie the show together and put it on par with DS9 as one of my favorite series.
I watched the entire series and while Shran is a good character, it's not enough. I'm not a big fan of Vulcan episodes, and ENT was filled to the brim with them, but that may have just been my personal taste (and I guess it makes sense for the 22nd century where the relationship between Vulcans and humans is still evolving). The Xindi arc was a fucking joke, it did absolutely nothing for me. At no point did I feel any emotional investment to care aboutit what's happening to them, it honestly felt more like the first two seasons of VOY where we basically follow a ship behind enemy lines exploring an unknown area of space by itself.

I guess season four works as a season except the finale, but the problem remains that it was still a setup season. DS9 did set up the Dominion War for a long time, but then it erupted in season 6, whereas ENT gets awkwardly wrapped up before the war with the Romulans starts. There is also no main villian like Dukat in DS9 except that one Romulan general nobody cared for. I know that ENT allegedly found their pace and style with the fourth season, but sorry, this was made in the modern era of television, you can not allow yourself to fail around for three fucking seasons like Star Trek tradition and then expect not to be dropped. This isn't the 80s anymore.

Hey guys.
I live in Spain, and I have been thinking about doing the Santiago's pilgrimage (not because I'm religious, just want to do some tourism and do some exercise).
What do you think about it?


Go for it. Sounds like a good experience.


I know this is a dead thread, but I'm doing a 21 mile loop in the Dolly Sods in WV this weekend with my gf. It's not too intense, but it's the longest backpacking outing I will have done so far. Wish me luck!
