Senate moves quickly to avert US rail strike by passing key bill
Senators also voted on Thursday on a measure, passed in the House on Wednesday along party lines, that would provide seven days of paid sick leave to railroad workers. It fell eight votes short of a 60-vote threshold needed for passage in the Senate. The rail companies and unions have been engaged in high-stakes negotiations. … The unions maintain that railroads can easily afford to add paid sick time when they are recording record profits. Several of the big railroads involved in these contract talks reported more than $1bn profit in the third quarter.

Gujarat Elections: Lack of Permanent Teachers, Unfilled Vacancies in Kutch Village Schools
Amid the post-pandemic spike in dropout rates, schools are being shut while government is saving money by deploying contractual teachers in far-flung areas, some of whom find communication with students a problem. … The village in question houses hardly 200 people. Therefore, the number of children in the village is bound to be low. Since all the families are small-scale farmers, they cannot afford to send their children to study far as they cannot afford the transportation cost.

>Socialists condemn Bundestag vote to label Soviet famine of the 1930s a ‘genocide against Ukraine’
The German government is attempting to criminalize objective History and is genociding intellectual integrity, and persecute people who don't parrot their ideologically warped distortions of history.
The Holodomor narrative probably originated as Nazi propaganda, and it's somewhat disturbing if that particular point of view gets enshrined into law.
>a false equivalence between the Nazis and the Soviet Union.
this has to be considered a type of political extremism.

What this creates is a escalation of ideological struggle, and an erosion of the meaning of the word "genocide".
Maybe it's time to introduce the word "classicide" into the political discourse, to frame the class differences in mortality.

There also is a more sinister aspect, because NATO is willfully sacrificing Ukrainians in large numbers as expendable pawns in the current geo-political attack against Russia and they are obviously increasing their accusations of inhumanity directed at Russia to hide their own inhumane logic.

So what do we think about free will? Personally I don't see how it could exist given that what humans do is entirely made up of Nature (biological impulses, genes, etc) and Nurture (childhood, life experiences, knowledge, etc), it seems to me that all 'decisions' are in fact entirely constrained by outside forces 100%. But I would be interested if anyone has a different opinion.

In regards to politics, if we accept free will doesn't exist, should this change how we approach the world? Should people that commit evil acts be treated more compassionately if they didn't really have a choice behind them in the first place? Or should we seek the maximum penalty regardless for deterrence or just because such people are dangerous?

It seems that if we were to accept free will doesn't exist then many social constructs basically fall apart.

15. To the discriminating, all is, as it were, painful on account of everything bringing pain either as consequence, or as anticipation of loss of happiness, or as fresh craving arising from impressions of happiness, and also as counteraction of qualities.
>The Yogis say that the man who has discriminating powers, the man of good sense, sees through all that are called pleasure and pain, and knows that they come to all, and that one follows and melts into the other; he sees that men follow an ignis fatuus all their lives, and never succeed in fulfilling their desires. The great king Yudhishthira once said that the most wonderful thing in life is that every moment we see people dying around us, and yet we think we shall never die. Surrounded by fools on every side, we think we are the only exceptions, the only learned men. Surrounded by all sorts of experiences of fickleness, we think our love is the only lasting love. How can that be? Even love is selfish, and the Yogi says that in the end we shall find that even the love of husbands and wives, and children and friends, slowly decays. Decadence seizes everything in this life. It is only when everything, even love, fails, that, with a flash, man finds out how vain, how dream - like is this world. Then he catches a glimpse of Vairagya (renunciation), catches a glimpse of the Beyond. It is only by giving up this world that the other comes; never through holding on to this one. Never yet was there a great soul who had not to reject sense - pleasures and enjoyments to acquire his greatness. The cause of misery is the clash between the different forces of ature, one dragging one way, and another dragging another, rendering permanent happiness impossible.

7. Works are neither black nor white for the Yogis; for others they are threefold – black, white, and mixed.
>When the Yogi has attained perfection, his actions, and the Karma produced by those actions, do not bind him, because he did not desire them. He just works on; he works to do good, and he does good, but does not care for the result, and it will not come to him. But, for ordinary men, who have not attained to the highest state, works are of three kinds, black (evil actions), white (good actions), and mixedPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I recently discovered Marx was very much against Russia in his time. At the point where he defended the anglo monarchy and the ottoman empire against Russian aggression in 1854 (sounds familiar?).
So, from Marx wrote in The Free Press in 56-57, we know he accused the anglo conservatives of being in bed with Russian interests, that after having studied a lot of archives and shit he arrived at the conclusion that lord Palmerston, some really important dude having a reputation of anglo patriotism, was a Russian glowie.
So when the Greek nationalists revolted during the Crimean war, what did Marx said? You guessed it, that they were the product of "russian intrigue" "mountain bandits" "muscovite emissaries".

So why was Marx a russia gate advocate and took side with liberals? Discuss.

Communists generally destroy or subvert Freemason lodges.
Growth of Freemasonry is one of the obscure signs that a socialist state is reverting back to capitalism, while cracking down on lodges is a sign that they're still on the socialist path. When the Bolsheviks took over Russia they were attacking a Freemason controlled liberal government. Even Trotsky attacked Freemasonry.
Modern "leftists" though are retarded and have forgotten all of this and dismiss secret societies as a conspiracy theory because they ate too much Jacobin and CIA propaganda.

The set of conspiracy theories around the Great Reset are nebulous and hard to pin down, but piecing them together gives us something like this: the Great Reset is the global elite’s plan to instate a communist world order by abolishing private property while using COVID-19 to solve overpopulation and enslaving what remains of humanity with vaccines.

The magic words are ‘stakeholder capitalism’, a concept that WEF chairman Klaus Schwab has been hammering for decades and which occupies pride of place in the WEF’s Great Reset plan from June 2020. The idea is that global capitalism should be transformed so that corporations no longer focus solely on serving shareholders but become custodians of society by creating value for customers, suppliers, employees, communities and other ‘stakeholders’. The way the WEF sees stakeholder capitalism being carried out is through a range of ‘multi-stakeholder partnerships’ bringing together the private sector, governments and civil society across all areas of global governance.

The idea of stakeholder capitalism and multi-stakeholder partnerships might sound warm and fuzzy, until we dig deeper and realise that this actually means giving corporations more power over society, and democratic institutions less.

The plan from which the Great Reset originated was called the Global Redesign Initiative. Drafted by the WEF after the 2008 economic crisis, the initiative contains a 600-page report on transforming global governance. In the WEF’s vision, “the government voice would be one among many, without always being the final arbiter.” Governments would be just one stakeholder in a multi-stakeholder model of global governance. Harris Gleckman, senior fellow at the University of Massachusetts, describes the report as “the most comprehensive proposal for re-designing global governance since the formulation of the United Nations during World War II.”

Who are these other, non-governmental stakeholders? The WEF, best known for its annual meeting of high-net-worth individuals in Davos, Switzerland, describes itself as an international organization for public-private cooperation. WEF partners include some of the biggest companies in oil (Saudi Aramco, Shell, Chevron, BP), food (Unilever, The Coca-Cola Company, Nestlé), technology (Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple) and pharmaceuticals (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna).

Instead of corporations serving many stakeholders, in the multi-stakehPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

No they want to rebrand neo-liberalism, they want to keep the same system but give it a new name.
They want to abolish personal property , where everything becomes a subscription and people have to pay rent for everything , but they don't want to abolish private property, because they them self own private property.

What they also want to do is kill off the small capitalists to absorb their capital or to destroy them as competitors. Private property will be owned almost exclusively by large corporations and super-wealthy capitalists. This is what capitalism does in it's later stages.

The great reset is capitalism doubling down on neoliberalism. It has nothing to do with communism. Or do you see anything in Schawbs vision that could be confused with workers controlling the means of production ? The proletariat asserting political dominance above all other classes ? To impose the political economy of labor above that of capital ?

Because of the expansion of rent seeking, it's also correct to see this as potentially a regression to feudalism.

It’s not a take, but a question. Why wouldn’t an owner-operator be petty-bourgeois if a craftsman, artisan, a small proprietor, etc., is? I don’t know too much about India, but if a shudra is an artisan with a petty property then why wouldn’t they be of the petty bourgeoisie?

A tractor trailer costs $100,000-$200,000+ and a moped is ~$1000. Owner-operators make north of $150,000 a year, and often own more than one truck and hire other drivers. What do moped food delivery drivers make? Comparing them to owner-operators seems like a stretch to me.

Actually finding out which geography they originate from is very important. That's how you can draw a line from the original settler cowboys to these modern rugged individualist libertarians.

One of the most enlightening things i have seen digging deep into existing socialist states is the rich and vibrant pro-LGBT sentiment from places like Cuba, Vietnam and China despite constant western propaganda describing these nations as being anti-LGBT and an oppressor of these minorities within their respective countries. Said governments regularly recognize and enact policies that favor heavily for LGBT people, such as Cuba's absurdly progressive, recently passed Family Code (which also legally abolishes the nuclear family within the country). China as well is notorious for being a large exporter of estradiol and other hormones used in HRT because of the widespread availability within pharmacies without requiring a prescription.

For a more specific example, heres an excerpt from the Vietnamese Government Newspaper with regards to gender equality and healthcare for LGBT minorities:
>The strategy includes 6 goals and 20 specific targets to further narrow the gender gap in political fields; economy, labor; in family life and prevention and response to gender-based violence; medical; educations; Information Communication.
>In addition to a number of indicators that need to continue to maintain the results of the previous period, the Strategy 2021-2030 also includes new targets, such as reducing the proportion of female employees working in the agricultural sector; increase public social assistance establishments that carry out activities to assist, prevent and respond to gender-based violence; reduce the adolescent birth rate; health facilities providing pilot health care services for the LGBT community; content on gender and gender equality is included in the curriculum in the national education system.

Despite this, it is becoming absurd that a number of people in this board (despite being an obnoxious minority) continues to peddle this as either bourgeois infiltration or as something to be opposed because of arbitrary labeling of degeneracy because they heard Stalin hated faggots from some westoid propaganda source once. Many threads are derailed often because the mere mention of LGBT invites a lot of homophobia and transphobia from retard reactionaries who couch it under support for said existing socialist states, despite these states being overall supportive of LGBT movements.

Where does this general sentiment come from?
