What is the reason for Singapore's post-colonial success with their capitalist model combined with a lot of government intervention? What differentiates Singapore from other capitalist countries and if Singapore's model is superior, why isn't it adopted by other countries, such as the capitalist ones that praise it?

Since this community is primarily composed of westerners, discussions of religion and spirituality often concentrates on christianity, while buddhism is often ignored. However, buddhism has a lot of relevance in the history of communism in Asia, and even today the Dalai Lama still openly calls himself a marxist.

However, what really interests me is whether buddhist practice makes people less or more revolutionary. Speaking from experience, buddhist practice made my life much more peaceful, instead of being angry at the system, I let go and accept the reality. By accepting it I don't mean that I support it, but that I simply understand that this is the way things are and that me being angry won't change anything, or will it?

Also, I think buddhism has the potential of making people more leftist. For example:
> The emphasis on thinking about interdependence along with meditation practice, which makes your preconceived notions fade away, opens people to realise the truth about capitalism
> the eightfold path includes right livelihood, which forces people to think whether the way they make money is exploitative of others or not
> The main driver behind capitalism, greed, is the first of the three poisons, one of the Buddhas teachings

Pacifism is certainly a spook. I think it's mostly connected to their metaphysics. Samsara, rebirth, Boddhisattvas. Cut it off and they will lose pacifism. Just give them Stirner and Nietzsche to read, that should help. What I noticed is that Buddhists change their minds after reading Stirner and Nietzsche which suggests to me that they cannot refute the presented counter-arguments which is an interesting observation.

Grow a spine, buddhist idiot. When you're dealing with anticommunists, as all clergy are, you have to be harsh.
As I said, Bolsheviks killed buddhists like Ungern Sternberg for good reason. Religion has nothing to offer the proletariat.

Social media is the best tool for spreading communist propoganda there has ever been, and people on here aren't even using it! Every single person on this website should be posting on multiple different social medias like Instagram, Tick Tock and Facebook. It doesn't have to be well thought out content, but spreading an alternative narrative or making a dedicated agitprop account will do so much. We can't give out newspapers like its the 1920s because nobody reads those anymore except people who are already communist, we need to be using 21st century propoganda techniques, and I know many people already are, but the real strengh lies in how every single person can involve themselves in it. You have absolutely no excuse to not make yourself an Instagram propoganda account and start sharing USSR redpills for example, or spreading awareness of police brutality. On top of this is the amazing ease of organising through these websites, though of course anything serious should be done on private channels. The people are already in a revolutionary mood, this is our chance as long as we properly use the tools we have.

because property tax is to create demand for the federal currency among rural people who would have no reason to use it if it weren't for property tax. they could just grow their own food and fuck off forever but property tax demands they participate in the economy and accumulate fiat.

The liberal democracies of Europe made similar agreements with Hitler *before* the USSR, and shot down Stalin's suggestions of an anti-fascist alliance.

https://archive.ph/vQOWB#selection-1688.1-1699.188

Furthermore, US industrialists were directly inspired by Fascist Germany and Italy to carry out the failed Business Plot against FDR.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Plot

The USA also paid reparations to German industrialists for their destroyed property after the war was over (Yes, even German industrialists who used Holocaust slave labor, like Krupp).

>When it inevitably does, and the system invents something like neoliberalism to undo the social reforms, that's when you can ruthlessly crush the bourgeoisie.

When has this ever happened? Social Democracy is a snare for the working class, a deception. What we need is ruthless class warfare, not dreams of class peace that pacifies the proletariat while the bourgeoisie are forever plotting how to claw back any concessions.

To win for good we need the dictatorship of the proletariat.

This man spent years going to school and studying to then go onward to write books that say literally everything Stalin did was correctly done, anything bad about him is propaganda and noone was unjustly killed ever during Stalins run.

He made sure to have academic qualifications before he wrote about this so he can become credible.

Is this the apex of what the /leftypol/ dreams of becoming?

The ethnic deportations were LE JUSTIFIED because these ethnicities were just natural-born nazis bro! Look, a FEW THOUSAND (out of many hundreds of thousands) were saboteurs!
If we punished the nazi sympathizers individually, well that would be THE REAL GENOCIDE because then we would destroy their national character by punishing too many of them, so obviously we had to collectively deport all of the hundreds of thousands of them across the wide expanse of Central Asia as a more suitable punishment, fucking up their national character anyway but they were nazis so they deserved it anyway.
Why couldn't we return these nationalities after 1945? Uhhhhhh no more questions, that makes it seem like Stalin made a mistake.
