I'm legit surprised that the Peruvian government actually did act like a democracy is supposed to do and prevent reactoid coups. The dipshits will keep trying no doubt and might very well succeed, but the fact that a liberal democracy put up a fight at all for the sake of a duly elected commie is something I never expected.

I wanna see if any big brain anons can wrap their heads around why quantum mechanics killed all form of metaphysical thinking. All physical phenomena are quantum manifestation of a field with many potential energies.

Quantum mechanics essentially killed many metaphysics philosophers and now all they do is cope.

Given recent announcements that the Biden administration will take active efforts to censor info on social media, and the not-so-recent precedents set by social media bannings over the last half decade, is it alarmist or reasonable to say that the US ruling class is beginning to resort to authoritarian methods?

Biden Press Sec.: "We've increased disinformation research and tracking… We're flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation." https://twitter.com/disclosetv/status/1415728046930268160

The Press Sec. again: "You shouldn't be banned from one platform and not others." https://twitter.com/townhallcom/status/1416089821056012289

america has been essentially a totalitarian police state since 9/11 but covid helped seal the deal. if you're still looking around at the world and wondering when fascism will happen as if it isn't already here, globally, you may be retarded
of course, the old-school left is too destroyed in most places for the ruling class to bother pretending to be revolutionary socialists these days. they just pretend to be woke instead, in this case saving (minority) lives from the big bad virus. but the real purpose of lockdowns and propaganda was atomising the population and decreasing their capacity to resist the "great reset"

>legalise … sectioning into a psyche ward

This is nothing new and is arguably the whole reason psychology came into existence in the first place; psychology has a huge amount of its roots in the eugenics movement, arguing for instance that slave runaways were mentally defective. The same is true today, a lot of pathologies, especially anxiety, depression and generalized neuroticism, are unarguably caused by economic circumstance and these same people will approximate a vulgar critique of capitalism when outlining their illness to a shrink.

What is new, I think, is the crackup of centralized ideological state apparatus' because of the internet and the state desperately trying to get a grip on hegemonic ideological discourse hence their broadside at digital platforms especially ones with little to no moderation.

In terms of a lurch toward fascism, I don't see it. The state is more or less as authoritarian as it always has been, they've just adapted their methods alongside the technological and societal changes. The glowies aren't assassinating commies and radical trade unionists because they don't exist in western countries not because they got better after COINTELPRO came to be public knowledge. Furthermore, the most 1984esque authoritarian shit they've pulled for a long time was the mass NSA dragnet surveillance systems the Snowden leaked and all that was put in place long before any concern about an uptick in Antifa and neo-boomer Nazis.

Monopoly capitalism isn't hankering for an open terroristic dictatorship of the bourgeoisies, even Trump's facile nationalism was to strong for them or rather their profitability and power. The petty bourgeoise seemingly are lurching in a fascistic direction comparatively but that's because all small business owners are insane people that are squeezed between monopoly capital (i.e jewish capital) on one hand and any form of organized labour (i.e commies) on the other. The petty bourgeoise can have only pseudo-revolutionary potential because their mode of existence is based on Capitalism and will always be at threat from monopolists and organized labour hence them abstracting those elements for Capitalism proper as Jewish perversion and Communist subversion respectively

He was a corrupt, right-wing leader so RIP to this guy but what the fuck is happening in Haiti.

>Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated after a group of unidentified people attacked his private residence, the country’s interim prime minister said in a statement Wednesday. Moïse’s wife, First Lady Martine Moïse, is hospitalized, interim Premier Claude Joseph said.


>Joseph condemned what he called a “hateful, inhumane and barbaric act,” adding that Haiti’s National Police and other authorities had the situation in the Caribbean country under control. The killing late Tuesday comes amid deepening political and economic stability and a spike in gang violence.


>The Haitian Embassy in Canada, in a tweet, also confirmed Moïse was killed.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/07/haiti-president-jovenel-mose-assassinated-at-home-says-official.html

WSWS take on him:

>Biden is continuing the policy of Trump in backing the US puppet against popular opposition. Moïse’s rise to the presidency, however, was engineered under the Obama administration and, in particular, by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, who was named UN special envoy to Haiti. They previously had pushed the 2011 presidential candidacy of Moïse’s predecessor, the carnival singer Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly, a political ally of the right-wing death squads that were the legacy of the US-backed dictatorship of the Duvalier family, which exercised a reign of terror over the country for three decades.


>The chief attraction of both these right-wing puppets was their subservience to US imperialism and the profit interests of the clothing sweatshop, agribusiness, tourism and mining sectors extracting wealth from the impoverished country.

Because he wasn't.
Fidel is based af but we have to be honest about things, the Fidel Castro that fought in Sierra Maestra against Batista wasn't a commie (Raul and Che were though) he seemed to be a liberal with succdem reforms, and he wasn't even going to be president, but leader of the military.

It was only after he got cozy with the USSR and ordered US refineries in Cuba to process Soviet oil instead of American that the US barked at the idea, and Castro said "Fuck it" and started nationalizing US companies, like the United Fruit Company.

It was then that the US started plotting against Castro and launched Bay Of Pigs, and during the speech* Castro openly declared the Cuban Revolution a socialist revolution, surprising and confusing a lot of people that would later join the anticommunist bandits.

The first constitution that declared Cuba a socialist state was made as late as 1975.

As an Iraqi I wonder why tf should Arabs, Blacks and other colored folk support marxism over our own anti-imperialist national liberation struggles? Arabs and Blacks are two of the most horribly oppressed and discriminated peoples on Earth why should we seek internationalism and solidarity from first world white people (and most other nations) when we're not even seen as humans? I'm born from a refugee family in Europe and I plan on gathering enough financial resources once I finish college and I'm moving to Iraq or any other Arab nation and I'm gonna dedicate my life for my people and their struggle, I'm gonna spread the message of Ba'ath and plan on doing a renaissance of the philosophy, I want the Arab nation to isolate itself from a world that hate us and want us dead, from Morocco to Awhaz I want a united Arab nation who take the same approach as the DPRK towards the world, and I'm ready to die for this dream.

This is true and sort of obvious for anyone who has more than a cursory understanding of history (so neither OP nor the poster you are replying to). To use an example from the Communist struggles of the 20th century Cuba was a strong friend of the Arab socialist movements for political as well as cultural reasons. As a result of this friendship both movements were more successful than they otherwise would have been. To use an example that mirrors this cultural schema but goes back further: The Arab emirate in the Iberian peninsula was a thriving hub of arts and sciences precisely because it was (relative to its time) a pluralistic society where Arab muslims, Berber muslims, and Hispanic (in the sense of being from what had been the Roman province of Hispania) muslims an opportunity to work alongside as well as engage with intellectually and culturally their Christian and Muslim neighbors. The golden age of this emirate ended when power was seized by a much less pluralistic regime which was not tolerant of religious minorities. The camaraderie between people of different races and creeds in andalusia resounds through time and across the globe and was what led José Julián Martí Pérez to declare "We are all moors" when he supported the independence struggle in Morocco against Spain. It is also what provided the chance for bonds of solidarity to be formed between Cuba and various Arab states and non state actors (e.g. Egypt and the PLO). To look for solidarity only within your own racial and cultural group is a sure sign of that group's decline. Those that are sure of themselves do not hesitate to work with others. For an example look at the work of the Chinese with their various partners with the Belt and Road initiative. For another example look at Iran and their many allies some of whom are Arab muslims and some of whom are Christian (the Iranian state provided covert support to the Armenians in their war against the Azeris.)

Comrades, let me tell you something. The capitalist-imperialist system is our #1 enemy, but day by day the police, military and other armed wings of capitalism are moving towards fascism. They want to keep the economic system, but destroy the political system. Almost every week there is a neo-nazi conspiracy found in the police/military in Germany, UK, Italy, Finland etc. The armed wing of capitalism is full of neo-nazis in most of the "democratic" countries. They are just waiting for the "day X" when they start to act.

What I want to say is: comrades, don't ever trust the police. Anything you say will be leaked to the "higher-ups" and your info will be given to your local nazis at some point. We on the left like to think ourselves more moral than the right wingers. That's not even the half of it. The armed fascist right wing has NO MORALS at all. They support rape, they support killing children, they are basically animals. And this is what we are up against.

In the EU it is hard to obtain legal weapons (unless you are a pig or a hunter like most of the fascos). I say: buy weapons if you can (for example cross-bows are good and powerful and legal to buy without any licence). Be sure that you are able to defend yourself. The fascists have no morals. They will do anything, they will rape you mom and fuck your sister if that's good for their terror campaign.

neolibs aren't warring on the pigs, that's hilarious. liberal parties are forced to feign leftward when their voter base (which is usually to the left of the party) gets mad, but the funding for liberal parties doesn't come from the voter base, it comes from cop-adoring porkies who want to keep their investments safe from the poors and the proles. liberal politicians are therefore willing to pass "police reform" laws as long as those laws are either toothless, easily revocable, or both.
>>393222
>agitation groups like BLM and Antifa.
BLM is both a slogan and a liberal organization. the slogan is older, and a "BLM protest" may or may not have any connection to the organization called BLM. the purpose of the organization is to help corral rage into safe channels of liberal reform, not to give rise to that rage. in fact it has been the cops who helped feed people's rage the most.
antifa is the name of a very old, very broad movement, as well as the adopted name of a whole bunch of mostly local organizations (some grassroots, others astroturf). once again, "antifa" could refer to all kinds of protests and protestors. where are these centralized, well-funded, well-organized groups which drive the entirety of leftist protest in the US that you seem to think exist?
>The bolsheviks thought the proletariats would take up arms and fight for their revolution, but too many of them were cowards. The tsarists were ultimately defeated by the peasantry, who were fighting for bread and not ideology.
this indicates to me just how diligently you have studied the subject: not at all, because you sound like you are repeating an anecdote you heard from one of your kameraden. the leading class of the russian revolution was the proletariat, though the peasants numbered more. the first places seized in 1917 were major cities and the rail and telegraph lines connecting them. the red guard was formed from workers, and only after the creation of the red army were peasants fighting for the bolsheviks in any significant measure. and,

In what way are neolibs against the police lol. The police literally the enforcing arm of the existing state.
>That's right. But who gives them their orders? Politicians who themselves get their orders from their corporate masters. The same corporate masters who fund the agitation groups like BLM and Antifa. Your problem isn't really with the police anon, because you may be funded by those who ultimately decide what the police force's objectives are.
Where is the actual proof of this? The BLM organization is certainly funded by certain corporations, but the actual larger movement doesn't seem to be at all. Antifa in particular seems to show zero proof of financing, largely because it isn't an organization to begin with. And our issue as communist would still be with the police regardless.
>I don't know where you'll get that army from today the you need. The bolsheviks thought the proletariats would take up arms and fight for their revolution, but too many of them were cowards. The tsarists were ultimately defeated by the peasantry, who were fighting for bread and not ideology. Some of Russia's toughest fighters and generals came from this class. You're not going to build a peasant army today, especially not in my country.
What the fuck is this garbage? This isn't even revision, this is just an outright lie. It was the proletariat in the first place that allowed the allowed for revolution to occur in many of the major cities in Russia, and who later were crucial towards the Bolsheviks gaining the upper hand in the provisional government and causing the Mensheviks, SR, and other factions to storm out. Many peasants loyalties and interests were also majorly divided during the revolution, and many simply did not participate. And many of the major generals that took part weren't even peasants, but former established military generals that used to fight for the Russian government itself.
