>"The institutional hierarchy of the education systems is a bourgeois fabrication of the ruling class to enforce draconian measures upon the proletariat and control the minds of the youth to mold them into nothing more than cogs in the great machine of capitalism!"

So, might as well put this fanfiction I made on how could ww3 go:
>Ukraine launches an offensive into the popular republics and Crimea, they advance a little. Ukraine declares war on Russia.
>The Donbass and Luhansk republics welcome the Russian army.
>The Ukrainian army advances into Crimea, but gets stopped. They conquer some, but get boggled down.
>Russia's military is organizing itself hard on this, and mobilizing itself.
>A month happens with people getting killed but no advances aside from light ukrainian advances.
>The west won't participate yet, but will help Ukraine through military support and it will tell through incredible mental gymnastics that Russia attacked first.
>People are not supportive of the war going on, but they won't care because they see it as just a regional war, no one cares.
>There will be some outrage at the west supporting Ukraine but it won't escalate.
>Then Turkey and Azerbaijan, using some shit excuse, attack Armenia to conquer it.
>Russia intervenes and starts invading Azerbaijan.
>Syria and Iran, maybe even Iraq, start attacking Turkey and Azerbaijan, since Turkey occupies parts of Iraq and Syria right now and Iran is fucking tired of it's bullshit.
>Erdogan says: Assad must go!
>Pakistan is big on being a turkey fanboy, and invades Iran.
>India then goes and invades Pakistan because Kashmir and so on.

The Bavarian uprising fails to be quashed by the Freikorps, more German communists flock to the new soviet republic and defenses are fortified just long enough for the USSR to supply them with arms. The other German states, tired from war, back off after a few months after more communist revolutions break out in German cities. The Nazi party never takes off as a result and the anger that Hitler exploited so well is exploited by the communists instead. Rather than blame the jews, they blame the actual reason the war was lost/so many Germans died: the generals and nobility.

Socialist Republic of Cuxhaven
there where some more but i don't remember all

Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first:

I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time.

I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting.

I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.

have quit 3 times for 3+months at a time, what's worked for me isn't tapering down (that just means you spend more time in the day wanting a cigarette) and instead going cold turkey and committing myself to hour long /nightwalks/ for 2 weeks. After that you won't feel any sort of cravings just the occasional urge no worse than a sweet tooth. I've also relapsed as many times after 3+ month quits, having even 1 cig has been a guaranteed relapse for me - I'll buy a pack 3-5 days after the initial smoke and return to my former smoking rate 1 week later.

Also if you haven't already, try not smoking when you are at work its a lot easier to not smoke at work than it is when you are at home doing nothing. You can also immediately go exercise after work with having a long enough break between your last smoke (16+ hours) that your lungs will be able to keep up with a strenuous cardio or lifting workout for an hour.

Best of luck, it massively sucks. Gonna quit later this week I think.


You first


I havent done opioids or smoke cigarettes since i was in middle school but honestly lately it just seems so tempting especially the cigarettes maybe ill just buy lollipops, I used lollipops as a way to keep the habit steady but I fortunately had no problems with withdrawals.

just wanted to vent because some things i just cant talk about.


>just vent
that's a-ok m8
>since i was in middle school
You did drugs as an elementary school kid!??!?!

The point is that building the future on a lie makes it dangerously fragile if/when the lie is exposed. Thinking you can just solve the balance of powers problem is childish. This is reflected when Ozy asks Dr. Manhattan if he did the right thing "in the end" and the response is "You don't get it. Nothing ever ends." He didn't create a solution, just stuck his finger in the leaky dam (at the cost of millions of lives). And it's sealed at the end when Rorschach's journal (documenting everything) arrives at a newspaper, because like someone with a working brain he sent it off before going with Nite Owl to confront Ozy.


Raven is just incredibly based whenever they get full reign of a project. Singularity was even better, a shame that it’s too short.


Yep. Honestly its one of the best AU storylines.

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.


>DEEPER Ted Cruz


I only watched the first season but it was kinda fun


One thing that bothers me is that they use touch screen phones which i don't know if there are burner phones with touch screens but regular android/iPhone phones would expose their location easily to a corporation of super heros.


New fake ad for The Boys is out. By the way, "Liquid Death" is a real company. Honestly there is tons to unpack here, I love it.

also that "Gentlemen"


the one image you have about waiting in line invalidates your entire argument. in one picture, people are waiting for bread because there are food shortages due to system of central planning. on the other people are waiting outside for the release of the latest iphone so they can be the first people to have such a luxury good that nobody in a communist nation such as the ussr had. those are 2 entirely different situations. false equivalence fallacy. one is necessity, the other is choice.

>Yes so behind that until the Manned moon landings the USSR's Space achievements were ahead of the USAs

i did say for the most part. both sides space program was based on german science and scientists captured in ww2. us still beat ussr to the moon, stealth aircraft, higher standard of living (no bread shortage) etc.

>The USA and UK took 100 years of industrialization

thats not true. but you need to understand that the UK INVENTED the industrial revolution. other nations that industrialized later just aquired the existing technology. make sure you thank UK, they invented it all.

also JSYK you should also understand that the industrial revolution in capitalist countries, despite the living and working conditions (nobody ever had done this yet) resulted in the greatest increase in wealth in human history.

>the Soviet Union had a Human Development Index of 0.920

according to who? the ussr? higher HDI than america despite people standing in breadlines, not having cars or vcr players? in 1990 americans were using the internet and computers. apple and microsoft were a thing.

>muh bread lines

Is this dude too retarded to even read the rest of the image LMAO


>didnt work for op, so he turned to some mega capitalist book for actual advice
op here and just feel like I need to mention that I used the Dale Carnegie book as an example is because it is a pretty famous self-help book which is what this thread is about.

This is the capeshit film thread
Discuss capeshit
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.

yes not very subtle
i watched and i enjoyed it

the visuals was the highlight of the movie but the ending was sad
i was feeling this movie was both siding it and it kinda did that but when peter cappaldi's character started talking it didn't feel like that
the hypest moment was actually when the workers beat the shit out of their boss amanda walKKKer
basically i'm trying to say is that The Suicide Squad (2021) is actually a socdem pro workplace democracy worker co-op movie.

I feel bad for starro :(

Shark man was good but his voice acting was boring as fuck, stop hiring people like stallone just for their big name man
James Gunn really felt formulaic with his GoTG tropes in this

Rats were the heart and the soul of this movie. I got so mad at seeing Taika Waitti when he cameo'd but the last line he spoke really was the sweetest.

Also what the fuck was weasel? He lived but what he's going to do now? Fuck them keeping peacemaker alive in the end credits. He was boring

I clapped when he said this in the theatres. Peacemaker? more like Comrademaker! Ha


Interesting analysis of Invincible and it's mold breaking


I didn't much like this version of Spiderman's art style but as aa show it was good. Tombstone is a pretty good Mafia boss villain and frankly, like batman, Spiderman thrives as a street vigilante facing off thugs, mafioso and self-made villains rather than some retardedly overpowered conflict on the tier of the avengers. .


>John Cena Taiwan apology video
Yeah he definitely chose his character intentionally to be a bad guy American Exceptionalist, this is hilarious.

We have the social skills advice, fit threads and what not but I want a general purpose thread for encouraging comrades to get ahead.
How to be resilient in the wake of capitalism, READ READ READ, discipline, batina and such other things, how to help those around you. Also share inspirational stories

This even if fictional was pretty inspiring for Lenin, he read the thing 5 times in a summer

Let's make a thread to discuss, review and analyze tv shows. Everybody is binging something these days.
Argue about dvd commentaries, Post your thesis on King of the Hill, Reminisce about a tv show you used to watch but don't quite remember it's title. Just about anything related to shows. Post your highscore on those Ben 10 CN flash games. Anything goes.

Holy fuck, did you guys see the Season 5 finale of Rick and Morty?


I'm on mr robot's season 3 and it's unbelievably annoying how Elliot and some characters are trying to undo their whole anti capitalist act. If the show ends up with them undoing the damage they done to Evil corp, I'm going to pronounce this the shittiest show of all time.


just watched squid game on netflix. people in debt need money and rich porkies make them play children's game, except you die when you lose. one interesting twist is that the players can vote to stop the game if they vote majority, but it nulls all the billions of money they could get. in the first episode they successfully vote to leave the game after seeing the horrors. however, because theyre all so deep in debt, they return to their game of their own "free will". there's subtle copaganda, especially in the ending where the main antagonist tries to show the protagonist that nobody will help the homeless dude on the street, and at the last minute a cop shows up to help. funnily enough, i thought they were gonna arrest the homeless dude in a twist, but it's implied they "help" the homeless person. it's a weird ending especially when it shows the participants learning to value this morality through their own experiences after witnessing the violence they must do for the sake of money but overall it's a show that wants to prove that people will do the right thing.


I finished watching it too, I considered it a bit classpilled because as you say the people that designed and keep that fucked up game are extremely rich porkies that just want to make poor people suffer for pure fun, literally because they're bored and they see poor people like cattle or more precisely horses that they can bet on, it's also heavily implied that those porkies are actually the guys the game participants are in debt to, as in they make people poor and indebted on purpose to get participants for the game

It's also interesting to know that there were very defined and clear hierachies among the employees, as in lower rank soldiers can't even talk without the permission of their superior, it's a literal class pyramid with the VIP porkies on top.they were able to mantain the game running and with employees willing to kill people using pure economic power


also idk if it was unintentional or not but that the fate of the pakistani immigrant worker who spoke korean was sad b/c the guy who betrayed him was not able to fulfill his promise to take care of his family. it sort of makes sense in that life and death situation to only think of your family, but it seemed realistic unfortunately
