>We may say of a system that it is in equilibrium if that system of itself, without the application of external energy cannot change its condition. - Bukharin
The fuck is this? Is this not a complete an utter break from dialectical materialism? It seems completely anti-Marxist. Its saying that systems have no internal motion, there's nothing about unity of opposites or the inherent nature of internal contradiction. Instead, objects are primarily influenced from the outside. He basically says that, if a system is in "equilibrium", it supposedly stays like that forever until something forces it from the outside. Marx, Engels, Lenin, etc. were very clear that motion is an inherent part of matter. Otherwise, you need some sort of 'original mover', aka God, to set matter into motion.
>A motionless state of matter is therefore one of the most empty and nonsensical of ideas - a "delirious fantasy" of the purest water." - Engels
>The condition for the knowledge of all processes of the world in their "self-movement," in their spontaneous development, in their real life, is the knowledge of them as a unity of opposites. Development is the "struggle" of opposites. The two basic (or two possible? Or two historically observable?) conceptions of development (evolution) are: development as decrease and increase, as repetition, and development as a unity of opposites (the division of a unity into mutually exclusive opposites and their reciprocal relation). In the first conception of motion, self-movement, its driving force, its source, its motive, remains in the shade (or this source is made external—God, subject, etc.). In the second conception the chief attention is directed precisely to knowledge of the source of “self” - movement. The first conception is lifeless, pale and dry. The second is living. The second alone furnishes the key to the “self-movement” of everything existing; it alone furnishes the key to “leaps,” to the “break in continuity,” to the “transformation into the opposite,” to the destruction of the old and the emergence of the new. The unity (coincidence, identity, equal action) of opposites is conditional, temporary, transitory, relative. The struggle of mutually exclusive opposites is absolute, just as development and motion are absolute. - Lenin

I find Rene Guenon deeply right about his analysis of the west and the east, religion, traditionalism, unity with Brahma, gnosis, etc. But at the same time i cant take marx out of my head. His analysis about how class struggle and class antagonisms shaped society showed me another way of seeing the world. Now i am stuck between the two. Is it possible to reconcile them? A way where the two are right at the same time?

Deductive analysis of spiritual texts / mythologies and extrapolate them to potential material contexts that might've existed in the societies they arose.
Some of them might be anecdotes for the simple illiterate farmer to comprehend, others would be spiritual legalism for priest class to interpret as law, some are spiritual / revisionist telling of past history.
Most of it will be spiritualized legalism from a time when priests were the politicians and religion was politics, interpreted by said priests according to the needs of the state or monarch.

Hello everyone, we have discussed the possibility of restarting /roulette/ in our latest meeting, we have come up with some idea for your consideration:

/grass/ - Board for everything non internet/screen/media related, eg cooking, sports, fitness, making friends, drugs, whatever. Cause we could all use a bit less internet.

/life/ - Pretty much the same as above but about only 'lifestyle' topics like cooking etc.

/tv/ - Television board since there are multiple active TV topics on /hobby/ and the general has gone to 500.

/antianglo/ - Board where no English language is allowed

OR

/antianglo/ - Board where nobody from the anglosphere is allowed (CANZUK+US) but English is allowed

Japan Communist Party Slams Dragon Quest for “Gender Stereotypes” & “Excessive Sexiness”
https://archive.ph/JYMl2

>“After giving it some thought, I decided on Dragon Quest, a game I’ve played before, and bought it at a local thrift store a month ago.


>It was insanely fun. In the game, you progress through your journey by talking to townsfolk to gather information and defeating monsters to level up. At times you rescue people, defeat mini-bosses, break curses, find treasure, and more. Each of these missions can be completed in about an hour. The feeling of progression is satisfying, and it’s perfect after a hard day of work.


>However, there’s been one problem that’s been bothering me throughout the whole thing, and it has to do with gender problems. I feel that there’s strong ‘male perspective’ everywhere… For example, the ‘chosen hero’ who was born to save the world is a male. There’s even a childhood friend who continues waiting and saves herself for the hero.


>Even for roles and abilities, male characters are generally assigned to attack, while female characters are assigned to heal and support. The way they speak (using -daze and -dawa endings) is also stereotyped by gender. Moreover, the excessive ‘sexiness’ of the characters is also concerning, such as the character model for the female martial artist that focuses on her breasts and hips, and the use of bunny-girl outfits as armor for female characters. The fact that many towns have sexually-oriented areas is also problematic.


>Thinking back, this is the Dragon Quest that I enjoyed during my childhood. Is it truly okay for children to enjoy these nationalistic games? I would like to see it get another look, because of the various influences that can come from the lack of understanding of genders. For now, I will continue to progress through Dragon Quest with a mix of excitement and gloom.”

Film depicting transgender love affair to be screened in Pakistan
Cannes Jury prize-winning Joyland had previously been banned following objections by Islamist hardliners
>A Pakistani film portraying romance between a married man and a transgender woman was cleared for domestic screenings on Wednesday, officials said, reversing a government ban forced by Islamist pressure.
>Lauded by critics, awarded the jury prize at Cannes and nominated as Pakistan’s entry for next year’s Academy Awards, Joyland was set to open in cinemas across the country this Friday.
>But, following objections from Islamist hardliners, Pakistan’s information ministry stepped in last week to issue a veto declaring the film “repugnant to the norms of decency and morality” and ordering a review by censors.
>However, Muhammad Tahir Hassan, the head of the Central Board of Film Censors, told AFP late on Wednesday that “there is no hindrance from the board for its screening”.
>“The distributors can screen the film from tomorrow morning if they wish,” he added.
>In ultra-conservative Pakistan, the rights of the transgender community are ostensibly enshrined in law.
>However, due to social stigma, most transgender citizens are forced to live on the fringes of society, often resorting to begging, dancing at weddings or sex work for survival.
>Meanwhile, the slim protections they do enjoy as a result of legislation seeking to end discrimination in education and the workplace are being challenged by Islamist parties.
>Transgender activists rallied around the cause of the film on social media following news of the ban.
>Rights group Amnesty International said it was part of a “deep-rooted and persistent pushback to ensuring their equal place in society”.

Sukma District, November 29, 2022: A commando of the CRPF’s jungle warfare unit CoBRA was seriously injured on Tuesday when suspected Naxalites opened fire at a newly set up camp of the paramilitary force in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district, police said.

The incident took place between 4:30 pm to 5 pm at Dabbakonta village under Chintagufa police station limits where the Central Reserve Police Force set up a camp recently, Inspector General of Police (Bastar range) Sundarraj P told PTI.

“A head constable belonging to 202nd battalion of Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) suffered critical injuries in the attack. He was shifted to the CRPF’s field hospital in nearby Bheji village,” he said.

Additional security forces were rushed to the spot and a combing operation was underway in the nearby area, he added.

Turkey 'gives Russia time to broker a deal' on Syria's Tal Rifaat
Russian officials are trying to convince Damascus and Kurdish fighters to withdraw from the northern Syrian city of Tal Rifaat to prevent a Turkish ground offensive, according to Al Jazeera and al-Araby al-Jadeed.  Turkish officials told Al Jazeera that the Russian side is making efforts to meet Turkey's demands in northern Syria as an alternative to the military operation, adding that Ankara stipulated the withdrawal of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia from the cities of Manbij, Kobane (known as Ain al-Arab in Arabic) and Tal Rifaat. … According to the newspaper's sources, the Syrian government's forces are expected to withdraw from the area if Turkish-Russian understandings on Tal Rifaat are completed. Similarly, Turkish-backed Syrian rebels have been told to prepare to take control of the area.

Fears for new Nagorno-Karabakh crisis as Azerbaijan threatens key road link
Increasingly fiery rhetoric and daily reports of clashes along the tense line of contact around Nagorno-Karabakh have sparked fears of a new conflict over the only remaining road link connecting the breakaway region to the outside world. The Lachin Corridor, which connects Karabakh to Armenia through a sliver of Azerbaijani-controlled territory, has been under the supervision of Russian peacekeepers since the 2020 war.

Justin Trudeau’s Canada Is Cozying Up to the Fossil Fuel Industry to Fight the Climate Crisis
The closing of the latest Conference of the Parties — COP27 — in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, offers a moment to reflect on the doom we’re staring down. Not that ruminating on disaster is a productive use of our time. It’s not. But clocking where we’re at and where we’re headed is good for perspective. Ideally, it ought to be good for motivation, too. It’s better to forestall 1.5°C of warming than 3°C. And yet as we stare down the trajectory of a warming planet, and as the Trudeau government struts the domestic and global stage overselling Canada as a climate champion, the annual meeting of those who can do something about it produced, at best, a mixed bag. That’s simply not good enough. On November 20, as the conference closed, Catherine Abreu, founder and executive director of Destination Zero, told the story of “A tale of two COPs.” The first COP is one that recognizes the disproportionate burden of climate change. As Abreu put it, “On one hand a landmark decision to establish a loss and damage fund to address the devastating consequences of climate change . . . ” The fund is well overdue. Not all states are affected equally by climate change, just as not all states are equal contributors to the phenomenon. And keeping in line with global history, the poorest states are set to bear the greatest burden despite being — as a rule — minor offenders compared to the wealthy ones.

Anon here meant this as dumb bait, but if you know the history you'll know that Trotsky and Luxemburg were personally well acquainted via their mutual mentor, Alexander Parvus.

It's hard to tell exactly whether or not Luxemburg "was a Trotskyist" because so much of Trotsky's writings from that period remain untranslated at Trotsky's request, but it's definitely not the case for post-1917 Trotsky.
