>Why do narcicistic freaks exist in the most extreme points of the political espectrum
It seems pretty obvious to me. I think if the status quo is strong, and radical movements are weak, then these movements will attract people on the margins. People who are struggling in various ways, people who are confused or have issues with mental health. But if the status quo weakens, there are recessions which shake the system, etc., then I think you'll have more a lot more normal people falling into it, because these radical ideas are not really that "radical" as much as they are basic and elementary, which is what "radical" really means after all: to get to the root of things. And that would also transform the character of the left pretty dramatically, I think. There are just millions of people being dumped out of the middle class and a lot of our ideas just become normalized among masses of people.

>>227509
>and that reaching certain system will automatically solve all their personal miseries and intetnal demons somehow, like people with Koro syndrome doung bizzare things to… well investigate for yourself,
I've made some references to the paranoid anti-communist U.S. show "Amerika" from the 80s here before, but it's kind of funny because the Soviet occupation government installs some Democrats who are mayors and county commissioners to run the puppet government and they are awkwardly trying to remember the lyrics to the new songs they have to sing. But if you think about it, who would actually fill up the civil service in a communist government? It'd just be a lot of the same people lol, and things probably wouldn't really change that dramatically, because you'd have to get down to the basics of just running an economy and keeping milk in the store. Like, you "win" when the normies become commies, not everyone become a weirdo internet person.

I also think people get into trouble when they start to think about politics as like a personal, individual, heroic quest that ends with them in charge. Let's say you're a communist, and a communist government comes to power, the odds are you might just end doing the same thing you're doing right now.

I agree that in no rational mind but that of a group of people that have been subjected to discrimination through centuries should the idea of basically mass immigrating to an already populated area while displacing the natives by violence be thought of, ever.

I think the Jews should have tried their luck immigrating to the US, the fear was that mass immigration would cause waves of antisemitism, I suppose, but the Jewish population that arrived there did so by quickly assimilating and leaving their religion behind.

This is an interesting topic that I've asked before (the possibility of an African-American ethnostate either within the US or in Africa), and most people here seem to disagree with its actual possibilities, it seems to be a fringe belief of the most nationalistic Black power parties.

DOJ THREATENED MIT RESEARCHERS WITH SUBPOENA IN COLLABORATION WITH BOLIVIAN COUP REGIME
A JUSTICE DEPARTMENT trial attorney repeatedly contacted Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers asking, eventually under threat of subpoena, about research they had conducted on the 2019 Bolivian presidential election, according to emails obtained by The Intercept. Sent between October 2020 and January 2021, the emails point to the existence of the Justice Department inquiry and add new evidence to support Bolivian allegations that the United States was implicated in its 2019 coup.

Athens paralyzed by striking public sector workers taking to streets to protest against new labor bill (VIDEO)
The Greek capital has been brought to a standstill as public sector workers protest against new legislation that they claim would restrict employee rights at a time when the economy is struggling to rebuild from the pandemic. Police estimated that as many as 6,500 workers gathered outside the country’s parliament building in Athens on Thursday after Greece’s main civil servants union ADEDY called a 24-hour-strike.

A capitalist takes $21 to pay for one hour of labor from worker A at $1/hr and one hour of labor from worker B for $20/hr. The end result is a commodity which the capitalist sells for $36, yielding a profit of $15. In this case, labor in its abstract (or ‘socially necessary’) form creates $18/hr in value (the full value of the commodity ($36), divided by the two hours which produced it), and this represents the value of labor.

In this example, worker B is paid $20 for an hour of labor power: this price of labor power is higher than the value of labor. In this case, for one hour of work worker B is able to purchase 1.11 hours of abstract labor. Consequently, worker A must work 18 hours to purchase the one hour of abstract labor. To clarify further: in this example, $17 in surplus value is exploited from worker A (the abstract value of labor ($18) minus the price of labor power paid as wages ($1)). Of this $17, $15 is kept by the capitalist and $2 is handed to worker B on top of the full value of labor. Functionally, worker B is an exploiter.

There is a fundamental problem in the logic of the value-transfer claim. If you want to argue for subsidizing happening by biased capitalists making that decision, the scope of that is limited by competition forcing down profits that could be channeled into sentimental acts like that. If you argue for subsidies of expensive workers through consumer decisions biased in their favor, that does not work at all as an argument for value transfer from the third-world worker to the first-world worker.

>>222646
Yes, the guitars produced by the Fender company for example are not actually the same across countries. Since the difference here is not speed of the workers, but qualitative, the wage differentials can be just about anything(!) without that ever implying any value transfer from one worker to another.

This is vague. Like, how much of the content comes from the Global South, on, say, a kilogram for kilogram or calorie for calorie basis?

Also, rich countries tend to be net food exporters while poor countries tend to be net food importers (measured in calories). Pic related.

>>Clelland calls the difference between the price of a commodity were it to be produced in the core countries and the actual price that benefits from the cheapness of ‘peripheral’ labour the consumer surplus. He estimates that at the bare minimum, global value transfer is worth at least US$4,000 annually to average metropolitan households and concludes that collectively these gain more than the capitalist class itself.
>Which is to say that a metropolitan worker living, say, in Germany due to the fact that agriculture and production has been shifted to an artificially cheapened labor market in the periphery (maintained by various means, such as unequal exchange, colonialism, etc.) has an access to a market where annually he can "save" up to 4,000 bucks. This difference would be made visible in prices if the the iPhones, potatoes, etc. were produced in his country at the very least on a minimum wage, bumping up the production costs of the capitalists and naturally the product prices as well.
Does this accommodate the fact that productions processes tend to be very different in the Global North than in the Global South? Sure, labor costs might be higher in the Global North, but these higher labor costs are, at least partially, offset by increased automation. Compare a diamond mine in the Congo to a diamond mine and Canada and you'll see that they look and operate very differently.

In 2013, an employee for the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton named Edward Snowden revealed to the world that the National Security Agency, an intelligence agency of the United States, was using digital mass surveillance techniques on every digitally connected American citizen and indeed, adult human on planet earth. For me this was a shock. I had been raised to believe that America was the ‘home of the free’ and that our constitutional civil liberties meant that we were entitled not to be spied upon by ‘our own’ government. Surveilling your own citizens is what the ‘bad guys’ and dictators did. Yet, here was the American government doing, basically the same thing. And the reaction of the country was essentially a big fat shrug. 80% of the population didn’t give a shit. A neverending chorus of Senators and government officials made the rounds on television to condemn Snowden as a traitor. In the end, some tech companies upgraded some encryption standards, but overall nothing fundamentally changed.

In TV shows, books, movies, and other fictional stories, the struggle is often for the hero to reveal the truth, some terrible secret that the powers that be are keeping in order to maintain control. At the climax, the heroes reveal the truth to the public and the bad guys can’t handle it. (think: V for Vendetta). The senator goes to prison for corruption, the dictatorship falls, etc.

In real life, people shrug. The ‘truth teller’ is condemned as a traitor, and to the extent anyone cares, they are more angry at the person who revealed the truth than what the ugly truth itself revealed. Evil is less outrageous than daring to reveal it.

Why is this? These stories and ideas are based on a fundamentally outdated outlook in which power is contingent upon concealing the truth, like the church prosecuting Galileo, or the plantation slaveholder forbidding his slaves to learn how to read. The liberal idea is that with freedom of speech, you get enlightened and rational discourse in which people converge on a consensus or at least reasoned disagreement, in the manner of a polite, Jeffresonian “republic of letters”. Freedom of speech, we are told, is the only necessary condition of discovering the “Truth”. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

This is not how things work. Freedom of speech is a necessary precondition, but not the end all be all. In the information age, problem is not a lack of information, but an overload of informPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Man, the pandemic and lockdown really showed that boomers don't give a fuck about the younger generation. Boomer politicians and national media told younger people to show solidarity with the elderly. In the end, millenials and zoomers were punished with scorn or ignorance while boomer politicians and their generation get vaccines and can live a normal life again. We can't even go outside in the evening without risking to pay a fine. I feel like I exist only to fund the retirement of boomers, while the retirement age for our generation will soon be beyond 70. I feel like everything turns to shit.
