NOTE: Writing Not Mine

Massive crowds turned out to join an event organized by the youth wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) as the country approaches the upcoming 2024 national general elections. The CPI(M) stands for a reformist path to power, while in stark contrast, the outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist) has taken the path of armed guerrilla struggle.

In the presidential race, India's left forces have suffered defeat after defeat in recent years, while the Hindu-nationalist Party led by Narendra Modi has been in power for almost a decade.

The CPI(M)'s last remaining stronghold is Kerala, in southern India, where the communists first came to power in the late 1950s. In terms of literacy rate, social status of women, economic development, and other social factors, Kerala ranks among the top states in India.

Meanwhile, the Indian state's official announcement that it would defeat the Maoist guerrillas by 2023, who maintain de facto authority in parts of eastern India, the so-called "red corridor," has failed."


Redbull me on casteism in India. What exactly is the caste system, how does caste discrimination take place in India, what is the role of Hinduism in supporting it, and what can be done about it?


There is support for the CPIM) outside of Kerala? I would imagine an indian civil war would be the deadliest event in human history.


It's a vestige of feudalism. The Varnas are analogous to class stratification in feudal Europe. Brahmins were clergy, Kshatriyas were nobility, Vaishyas were merchants and Shudras were workers. It's not a surprise that the vast majority of India's national bourgeoisie are Vaishyas, because they snatched all power from the nobility following the Indian independence struggle and the subsequent liquidation of all princely states by the newly formed government, followed by the enrichment of bourgeois dynasts like Tata and Birla.



Different, insofar as you cannot convert to Hinduism, but that your ethnic group, as a Jati, can assume a Varna within Hinduism.

Basically, caste = RACE AND CLASS in the Hindu system.

For your consideration:

Both this rambling misogynistic totalitarian rant, and this admission of homosexuality were written by the same far-right nutjob. But he's not the point of this post. What I find really fascinating is the huge overlap between gay men and the far-right. Ernst Röhm and the Stormtroopers were purged by Hitler for their flagrant homosexuality, and even then a lot of Nazis were still gay. Japanese fascists also practiced sodomy in accordance with samurai traditions. Yukio Mishima is a peak example of this. The Taliban and other Pashtun Islamists are obsessed with having gay sex. I know one Pashtun Pakistani Islamist who regularly brags about all the "boys" he's fucked.

All of these men are also overwhelmingly misogynistic, and only see women's purpose as breeding. Radical feminists have always asserted that the act of penetration is an inherently dominating and violating one. I don't agree, but I think a lot of men do view it this way. I don't think it's so much about the homosexual act itself, more that they just see a hole as a hole for them to dominate and humiliate. But they do seem to overwhelmingly prefer doing it to other men.

Yep, the biggest war where everything happened at once was WW1, and even that one had decades of buildup beforehand with most people thinking that a war would be impossible because they lived through such a long period of peace and the weapons were too devastating to be used on le civilized white people.

Even WW2 was seen as multiple seperate regional conflicts until 1941.

Given how there is a new variant of concern circulating and the healthcare system (at least here in the US), is under stress. I'm making this thread to reopen discussion about COVID, and to an equally important extent public health in general. Even if there are other pressing concerns, I believe that it would be a mistake to not discuss the long term issues that will arise due to COVID on the health and well-being of working class populations and subsequently geopolitical implications, and how we as the left can account for this. Please feel free for international anons to give updates on your respective country's response (or lack of one).

>In the United States, estimates of excess deaths attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic have consistently surpassed reported COVID-19 death counts. Excess deaths reported to non-COVID-19 natural causes may represent unrecognized COVID-19 deaths, deaths caused by pandemic health care interruptions, and/or deaths from the pandemic’s socioeconomic impacts. The geographic and temporal distribution of these deaths may help to evaluate which explanation is most plausible. We developed a Bayesian hierarchical model to produce monthly estimates of excess natural-cause mortality for US counties over the first 30 mo of the pandemic. From March 2020 through August 2022, 1,194,610 excess natural-cause deaths occurred nationally [90% PI (Posterior Interval): 1,046,000 to 1,340,204]. A total of 162,886 of these excess natural-cause deaths (90% PI: 14,276 to 308,480) were not reported to COVID-19. Overall, 15.8 excess deaths were reported to non-COVID-19 natural causes for every 100 reported COVID-19 deaths. This number was greater in nonmetropolitan counties (36.0 deaths), the West (Rocky Mountain states: 31.6 deaths; Pacific states: 25.5 deaths), and the South (East South Central states: 26.0 deaths; South Atlantic states: 25.0 deaths; West South Central states: 24.2 deaths). In contrast, reported COVID-19 death counts surpassed estimates of excess natural-cause deaths in metropolitan counties in the New England and Middle Atlantic states. Increases in reported COVID-19 deaths correlated temporally with increases in excess deaths reported to non-COVID-19 natural causes in the same and/or prior month. This suggests that many excess deaths reported to non-COVID-19 natural causes during the first 30 mo of the pandemic in the United States were unrecognized COVID-19 deaths.

>Excess mortality calculations have been widely used to assess the mortality impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (1). Excess mortality refers to the difference between the observed number of deaths during a given period and the number of deaths that would be expected based on earlier mortality trends (2). More than 1.1 million excess all-cause deaths occurred in the United States during the first 24 mo of the pandemic, with approximately 635,000 in the first 12 mo and 544,000 in the next

Temporal Association between COVID-19 Infection and Subsequent New-Onset Dementia in Older Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis


>Background: The relationship between COVID-19 infection and the increased likelihood of older adults developing new-onset dementia (NOD) remains elusive. This review primarily aimed to investigate the potential role of COVID-19 in leading to NOD among older adults aged 60 years and older over various time intervals.

>Methods: A thorough search was performed across several databases including MEDLINE/PubMed, PsycINFO, Scopus, medRxiv, and PQDT Global for studies published in English from January 2020 to December 2023. We assessed the risk of developing NOD, using Risk Ratio (RR) for measurement. The control groups were categorized as: (i) a non-COVID cohort with other respiratory infections [control group (C1)]; and (ii) a non-COVID cohort with otherwise unspecified health statuses [control group (C2)]. Follow-up periods were divided into intervals of 3, 6, 12, and 24 months post-COVID. The study protocol was registered with PROSPERO (CRD42023491714).

>Results: Our review incorporated 11 studies, encompassing 939,824 post-COVID-19 cases and 6,765,117 controls. The overall pooled analysis revealed a significant link between COVID-19 infection and an increased risk of NOD (RR = 1.58, 95% CI 1.21–2.08). In subgroup analyses, NOD risk was significantly higher in the COVID-19 group compared to C2 at 12 months post-COVID (RR = 1.84, 95% CI 1.41–2.38), but not at 3 (RR = 0.87, 95% CI 0.46–1.65) or 6 months (RR = 1.73, 95% CI 0.72–4.14). Compared to C1, the risk increase was not significantly remarkable at 3 (RR = 0.94, 95% CI 0.35–2.57), 6 (RR = 1.13, 95% CI 1.07–1.20), and 12 months (RR = 1.12, 95% CI 0.91–1.38), and overall (RR = 1.13, 95% CI 0.92–1.38). Female had a significantly higher risk of developing NOD in the COVID-positive group (RR = 1.65, 95% CI 1.53–1.78) and C2 group (RR = 1.33, 95% CI 1.22–1.44). Patients with severe COVID-19, as classified by the American Thoracic Society guidelines, were significantly much more prone to developing NOD than those with non-severe infections (RR = 17.58, 95% CI 10.48–29.49).

>One patient who asked for an ADA accommodation at another hospital says she woke up postoperatively to find herself unmasked. So were some of the nurses. She had tested negative for Covid-19 before her admission and became ill shortly after that. Hospital-acquired Covid-19 carries a higher mortality—33% in one study and 10% during the Omicron wave. This is from worse underlying disease (e.g. cancer, CRF, immune status and generally older patients).

>Other patients expressed anger at policies like MGB’s which state, “Patients can ask, but providers determine when and if masking in a particular situation is necessary.”

Some patients noted that they felt safer during the pandemic when everyone in healthcare settings was masking.
One woman complained of a physician abruptly removing her mask to examine her without her consent. She felt assaulted.
A recurrent theme was frustration that medical staff are ignoring the science—that repeat infections increase the risk of long Covid, that everyone masking is safer than one-way masking, and that N95 respirators are more protective than leaky surgical masks.

>Another major complaint is being asked to wait long periods in unmasked waiting rooms for appointments, whether in the hospital or medical clinics. Patients are angry that they are refused permission to wait outside and be called in when it’s their turn. If restaurants can give people buzzers to call them in, one would think hospitals could master the technology.

>Vulnerable patients are rebuffed when they want other people in a waiting area to mask—being told, “We can’t tell other people to mask,” yet if there were a case of measles, they could do so. Similarly, in an oncology or rheumatology office with many immunocompromised patients, the staff’s “right” to go unmasked trumps the patient right to a safe environment.

>Patients fear retaliation and dismissal from a medical or dental practice, especially when no other options exist. Pantea Javidan, a Stanford sociologist and attorney stressed the difficulties patients experience “due to a power imbalance with physicians. They depend on doctors' expertise and can't easily question decisions such as mask-wearing.”

>A recent article by Yan Xie and colleagues1 presented strong data that COVID-19 is much worse than the seasonal flu.

>The researchers observed increased rates of delayed and long-term death and disability in US military veterans who were hospitalized with COVID-19 as compared to those hospitalized with seasonal influenza. The COVID-19 group of patients had a 51% higher chance of death over an 18-month follow-up period. When the researchers analyzed 94 prespecified diseases or disorders, patients who had COVID-19 had an increased risk of acquiring 64 of these adverse outcomes, as patients’ post-influenza had an increased risk for only 6. Except for the pulmonary system, patients with SARS-CoV-2 had an increased risk of developing diseases in various organ systems. SARS-CoV-2 patients also experienced 287 disability-adjusted life years per 100 patients, as those post-influenza experienced 243.

>The Veterans Health Administration services an older population compared to many healthcare systems. But, there are also higher rates of obtaining COVID-19 boosters in older patients,2 which may explain the CDC survey findings that the peak incidence for reporting long-term COVID occurs in ages 30 to 50 years as opposed to those 70 years and older.3

>Analyzing CDC reporting system data, the authors also determined that there are 2 to 3 times as many hospitalizations for COVID-19 as for seasonal influenza.

>Most importantly, the impact on society is not just determined by the case fatality or disability rate for those infected with a dangerous pathogen. Infectivity is also of utmost importance, especially for SARS-CoV-2, an immunoevasive mutating virus that all too commonly causes reinfections.

>From the onset of the epidemic, SARS-CoV-2 was known to be highly infectious. Early research estimated the R0 to be approximately 2.5, as influenza during the 2009 Swine flu pandemic had a R0 of approximately 1.5.4 Other researchers have estimated an R0 for SARS-CoV-2 of 2.635

"We've tried nothin' and we're all out of ideas."

>On February 13, the Washington Post reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plans to issue new guidelines that would substantially pull back on recommendations for people infected with Covid-19.

>The guidelines, which are expected to drop in April, will reportedly no longer recommend that most Americans infected with the virus stay away from work and school for five days. Instead, they will advise people that they can leave home if they’ve been fever-free for at least 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine like ibuprofen or acetaminophen) and have mild and improving symptoms. The Post’s story didn’t mention whether or how the new guidelines would recommend using tests to guide decision-making.

>“It’s a reasonable move,” says Aaron Glatt, an infectious disease doctor and hospital epidemiologist at Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital on Long Island. “When you’re doing public health, you have to look at what is going to be listened to, and what is doable.”

>Guidelines that adhere to the highest standards of infection control might please purists in public health who don’t have to make policies for the real world. However, guidelines that seem to acknowledge that workers often don’t have paid sick leave and emergency child care, and that social interactions are important to folks, are more likely not only to be followed but to engender trust in public health authorities.

>A great advantage to the German movement is that the Trades’ organization works hand in hand with the political organization. The immediate advantages offered by the Trades’ organization draw many an otherwise indifferent man into the political movement, while the community of political action holds together, and assures mutual support to, the otherwise isolated Trades Unions.

>The past year has been an eventful and a fruitful one for the Working Class of Europe. Great progress has been made in almost all countries with regard to the organization and extension of a Workingmen’s Party; unity, threatened at one time by a small but active sect, has been virtually restored; the working-class movement has forced itself more and more into the foreground of every-day politics, and, a sure sign of approaching triumph, political events, no matter what turn they took, always turned out, in some way or other, favorable to the progress of that movement.

From the perspective of the workers’ movement, things are much worse, never mind better, than in 1878. Today we don’t have neither trade nor political organizations, let alone any kind of synergy between them. Things are worse in a practical sense than even the 1830s when the movement was just beginning to develop into a mature form.

Good, carry on


Capitalism was meant to collapse during the first generalised imperialist war (WW1). The crushing of the German Revolution and subsequent degeneration of the USSR has been a disaster for the human race


It is no secret that compared to the past the left is in coma.
The common sense that permeates society is that capitalism and states are natural and unavoidable. Communism and socialism have been successfully demonized or distortioned. Anarchism is hidden rather than demonized (except for its meaning of chaos/destruction). Education from school to university is propaganda from beginning to end.

I dont know what happened in the last few decades, but something very wrong happened to the left. To say we are a minority is an understatement. The only reason I became anarchist and joined the social cause is thanks to Youtube videos of Chomsky I watched over a period of years. Throughout my life I was never exposed to anarchism be it through libraries, anarchists, etc.

What can we do to fight back against the relentless propaganda of the status quo?

give that right-wing propaganda relies entirely on narcissism and inflating their ego with larping and fake praise, the best way to counteract it is to simply to show them that all their idols are fucking losers which is easy to do because nazis do it themselves. bring up shit like the parade of the vanquish, the mass suicides in 1945, the fact that hitler had a scar fetish. the best solution isn't to make the right look evil, but lame, dorky, and uncool; since right-wingers rely almost entirely on aesthetics rather than actual logical consistent.


*scat fetish


propaganda is always more effective when it is trying to be an appeal to emotion rather than logic. Appearing cooler will always gain you more followers than being more logically sound, it seems a lot of us still don't understand this. Hence the propensity for particularly wordy memes ig too.

More than making the Nazis look lame, we must make ourselves us look cool, optics is everything.


well than how do we make leftists look cooler?


Well ditch idpol first off, thats a no brainer.

Displaying a Compelling narrative is important, our struggle against authority is one that is millennia long and we should display our movement as such. Something eternal, beyond just the moment.

Display strength, not weakness, in the movement as a whole but also in the individual. The archetypal Anarchist of yesteryear was a bandit, a mustachioed villain, and someone of almost bestial dedication, but never weak. Contrast this figure to that of the modern archetypal Anarchist, weak, squalid, pathetic losers who are disconnected from that of the working class. Our branding is shit.

This is just some ideas upon the mass of which others will contribute to our field of propagandismo (i hope).
