How soon will the Taiwan crisis erupt into open war? It can't be too long, right? I'm giving it half a year at most. Does anyone have some materialist analysis to share in brief? What's the Marxist or Communist position on this conflict? How does it tie in with the larger trend of dedollarization, decoupling and multipolarity?

I don't see a war happening, at least within the timeframe of a decade. The CCP values stability and predictability and war is the opposite of that. The world economy has already been upset by the Ukraine war, and it wouldn't serve them to stir up the pot even further. I could see the US instigating a confrontation, on a shorter timeframe than a decade, but even they must feel they are spending too much supporting Ukraine now to bankroll another proxy war.


>lmao, you mean cut from the imperialist west. Everyone else if fine with them.
China's primary manufacturing goods market is the US and europe anon. Losing access to those markets would be a huge blow, although it would also be a big blow to the west as well.


Nobody is going to war without the global economy being in tatters first. Even a war limited to Taiwan only would still cause a disruption of shipments going from the Malacca Strait all the way up to Hokkaido and it's GG for every country in the region. Pretty sure the CPC knows this which is why they haven't even tried going to for Kinmen yet.

Plus it's not just up to China anymore, there's a risk now of Korea going hot again which would've been unbelievable two years ago. If shit really is gonna go down, then the capitalist prosperity of East Asia is about to undergo one of the most biblical phases of destruction in human history. Ironic that it immediately followed the fastest capitalist expansion ever, too.


I think he's talking about Russia, but yeah you're right. It's part of why Russia could afford to go to war in the first place, not much to lose compared to China.


> The Leninists turn Marx into an ‘alchemist of revolution’ and the humanists turn him into a contemporary reformist social-democrat—while in fact he was neither.

Have you actually read? Towards the end he rejected the idea of universality and that revolution was to be applied in all nations. Even Lenin believed that countries like Switzerland could peacefully transition to communism.

I’ve noticed many reactionaries and xenophobes alike try as hard as they can to shove as many slurs and swears into every sentence they throw out. It’s like they’re trying to prove to someone about how xenophobic they’re even if no one is there for approval that’ll never arrive, unsurprisingly when their language is criticized they tend to get shaken up and defensive, like they’re being exposed about something embarrassing.

its not the swearing itself, its that theres something pathetic and juvenile about shoving as many of the meanest words you can think of into your speech in a limp attempt to give it some kind of affect

theyre emotionally stunted idealists who think that throwing a temper tantrum hard enough will make people see the "light"


also this is just not true lol, office workers & similar middle management ilk love to come up with corny obscenities and giggle like theyre getting away with being naughty

Marx: “The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his 'natural superiors,' and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous 'cash payment.' It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom—Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.

The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.

The bourgeoisie has torn away from the family its sentimental veil, and has reduced the family relation to a mere money relation.”

“Long night of horror” ends for Colombian trade union movement
In a symbolic act, the Colombian government on Thursday recognized the trade union movement as a recepient of collective reparation after more than three decades of persecution and stigmatization. Colombian President Gustavo Petro, in front of trade unionists from all over the country, announced the creation of a high-level commission that will include ministers and workers’ delegates to draw up a plan that will lead to truth, reparation and non repetition.

Dominican Republic President Orders Border Closure With Haiti
On Thursday, the president of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader, decreed the closure of the maritime, air and land border with neighboring Haiti as of 6:00 am (local time) on and has ordered the Army, Navy and Air Force to be ready to comply with the provision. "The Haitian government itself has control problems in its territory. If there are uncontrollables there, they will be uncontrollable for the Haitian government, but they will not be uncontrollable for the government of the Dominican Republic," said Abinader.

'This Is Our Defining Moment': UAW Launches Historic Strikes Against Big Three Automakers
The United Auto Workers union kicked off historic strikes against the Big Three U.S. car manufacturers early Friday morning after the companies failed to meet workers' demands for adequate pay increases and benefit improvements. The initial wave of strikes hit select Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis facilities, with the union deploying a tactic it has described as a " stand-up strike."

Starbucks workers will gather, including locally, over alleged union-busting efforts
Starbucks workers will gather at cafes across the country, including the Greece Ridge Starbucks location, to speak with customers about the company’s alleged union-busting efforts. Starbucks Workers United, the union that represents workers across at least 40 states, says they’re demanding that Starbucks respects workers right to join a union. They’re calling the company “the worst offender of labor law in modern U.S. history.”

Warnock calls on Atlanta officials to be more transparent about ‘Stop Cop City’ referendum
Warnock’s letter comes after weeks of calls from “Stop Cop City” activists who were furious that the state’s top Democrats had stayed largely silent over the city’s plan to adopt a signature-matching verification process. Activists and prominent voting rights groups have decried the restriction as voter suppression. “I am concerned by the past application of signature match in Georgia that likely led to discrimination and potentially the disenfranchisement of eligible voters,” Warnock wrote as he asked Mayor Andre Dickens more than a dozen specific questions, including why officials plan to use a signature-matching process and how residents can fix potential errors to prevent their petition from being tossed.

Billionaires Cash In On Abusive Farm Worker Scam
Billionaires who have been buying up farmland across the country are using a controversial immigration program linked to labor abuses and human trafficking to find low-wage workers for their agricultural investments. The visa program, which is allowing a growing number of employers to pay rock-bottom wages, has been at the heart of recent modern slavery cases — and one in three workers in the program say the arrangement has limited their ability to leave their jobs. While the industry claims the immigration program is necessary to help family farms find seasonal workers, companies affiliated with billionaires like Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, Stan Kroenke, Phillip Anschutz, and John Malone have used the H-2A visa program to staff their expanding agricultural holdings throughout the United States, according to records reviewed by The Lever. Records also reveal that one of the world’s largest financial firms, Toronto-based Manulife, owns farm properties in Washington state that hosted H-2A workers. Manulife is among several major financial firms that have gained control of hundreds of thousands of acres of U.S. farmland since the 1980s.

Iraq: communists help build a new electoral coalition
IRAQ is witnessing important developments and facing many challenges at various levels — political, economic, social and security — as well as the effects of climate change, water scarcity and environmental deterioration. In the current political scene, several internal and external factors are at play. The ethnic-sectarian power-sharing system and endemic corruption continue to dominate the political scene. The ruling elite or oligarchy, under this system, is seeking to perpetuate its control of political power, influence and interests, and to further strengthen the deep state and the militarisation of society. The persistence in strengthening the rentier nature of the Iraqi economy, the open market and neoliberal policies, and the weakening of the role of the state have resulted in a fragile economy that relies on oil revenues. These revenues account for more than 90 per cent of the government’s budget. The country is still far from the state of politPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

On one hand I realize the material conditions at play, and I sympathize with them for escaping terrible situations, but on the other hand I know they'll most likely integrate poorly, crime rates will inevitably go up, they won't work, and they'll get government benefits for it. I feel conflicted, I want to help these people but when I think about my own country that's still very much homogoneous, (Eastern Europe), I can't help but wish for it to stay that way, something about Africans being half the population just doesn't sit right with me.

World3 models based on "Limits of growth" were updated in 2020 using modern data. They found out that our current predicament is best correlated by "Bussiness As Usual 2" (BAU2) or "Comprehensive Technology" (CT). But it's too soon to tell cause functions haven't diverged too much still.
One curious thing is that the original world3 sim (BAU) predicted collapse by the depletion of resources, while BAU2 predicts collapse by pollution (CO2 released). It seems the original model underestimated how many resources we have at hand. SW is "Stable World", which is increasingly less likely to achieve.
So, if we follow BAU2, it seems like the 2040s will be very heated and the second half of the 21st century will be unrecognizable by today's standards.

>At this rate 100% of the electricity will be generated by renewables around 2035

At this rate fossil fuel will still be above 50% by then


EU will ban the sale of ICE vehicles in 2030, manufacturers will basically all shift to EVs, the industry will begin to use green hydrogen instead of gas for the industry with the amount of power produced etc. Nuclear and fossil fuels are over represented in primary energy graphs because they are very wasteful btw so those shares will drop fast as they are progressively abandoned.


I used to hate the United States for how much unimaginable amount of suffering it’s inflicted onto the planet with nothing to show for it throughout its entire existence, but now I hate it even more for the fact that it’ll never be anything important to history beyond the worlds biggest shitstain of a country. If the idea of living in a place where the largest human settlements filled with businesses, communities and events can regularly be completely isolated everyday sounds awful, that’s downtown life in suburbs of A. If the idea of seeing more homeless people and randos being arrested consistently than children walking outside and playing in parks sounds barbaric, it’s a daily occurrence in nearly every state in that shithole. 400 years of capitalism, slavery, mass genocide, and drug abuse with nothing to show for it. nearly all the fucking innovations made in the past 200 years of its pathetic existence were from the USSR, China and Japan. How does one, in history manage to fuck up so hard at the concept of building a functioning society for all of its civilians that to this day it’s still having issues with ethnic violence based on policies from over half a fucking century ago. How the hell can you fuck up so badly at being a positive influence for other countries that an entire continent right next to yours had to go through several generations of corruption and mass violence regularly until your geopolitical influence got completely obliterated. It’s so infuriating to watch burgerstan ruin everything, every object, he’ll even every person it introduces itself to and the country itself continuously burn itself over self inflicted problem after self inflicted problem, knowing it’s not gonna get better, there not gonna have a socialist revolution, there just gonna slide into irrelevancy completely, more violence, more inequality, more homeless, just more of the same shit until some other country takes mercy on them and burns the entire place down to end the suffering of its inhabitants.

The issue with alternate history is if it were possible it wouldve happened, but it didn't


You are describing fatalism that everything that had and will happen is written in stone. If we live in a world where what happens has yet to be determined then not everything that is possible happens i.e Thermonuclear war could have ended all life at many points of the cold war that made it highly probable yet they didn't happen due to the actions given people took.


Just because something is possible doesn't mean it will happen, for exemple, if you throw a dice, it's possible that it ends on a 4, doesn't mean it will happen, and if it doesn't end up on a 4, it doesn't mean that it wasn't possible in the first place, the Sino-Soviet split could have had been avoided, or the German revolution could have been won, but the wrong choices were made and now we can only wonder what could have had been


Marriage won’t be a thing under communism, and obviously, neither will divorce.


the revolution for the chinese was supposed to be a means to break with rigid societal tradition and advance the society. the revolution for the soviet was a means of advancing imperialist jewcommunism. prc and cccp had nothing in common and were in fact perfect opposites.

>The Soviet Union only collapsed because the americans embargoed them

Why do communists feel entitled to trade with capitalists states? Communists regularly threaten to kill all capitalists, overthrow capitalist states, saying that the capitalists are going to sell them the rope they're going to hang them with…. and then complain when capitalists states won't trade with them when it's the pretty obvious and logical thing to do.

It's like an incel letting everyone know that he wants to kill and rape women and then wondering why no women will sleep with him.

The USSR traded extensively with Europe and the rest of the capitalist world, all throughout its history. Americans helped them design their steel plants.

you mean they hired american designers before the international capital started being too openly hostile

So why was beria betrayed? He was extremely loyal to stalin and the fact the revisionists got rid of all of the old followers of stalin pretty much meant the soviet union became worthless and khrsuchev betrayed the working class afterwards.

Beria is smeared by anticommunist conservatives and Trotskyites. Nothing they have said about him has ever proven to be true, but conservatives can lie all the time and get away with it because their audience doesn’t know better.
