>Toller's government members were not always well-chosen. For instance, the Foreign Affairs Deputy Dr. Franz Lipp – who had been admitted several times to psychiatric hospitals – declared war on Württemberg and Switzerland over the Swiss refusal to lend 60 locomotives to the Republic.[14][13] He also claimed to be well acquainted with Pope Benedict XV[15] and informed Vladimir Lenin and the Pope by cable that the ousted former Minister-President Hoffmann had fled to Bamberg and taken the key to the ministry toilet with him.[16]

>The Venezuelan National Assembly (AN) has passed a bill to create a National Communal Parliament (PCN).


>The legislation approved on Tuesday aims to set up a body made up of communards elected directly through the country’s local grassroots organizations. The number of communal parliamentarians and election rules will be set up by the country’s electoral authorities.


>The competencies laid out for the new assembly include “deliberating” on matters related to communal structures, holding the Ministry of Communes accountable and proposing laws concerning popular power to the National Assembly. The PCN will in turn respond to committees elected by local instances.


>Former President Hugo Chávez conceived the commune as the “fundamental cell” for the transition towards socialism in Venezuela. According to the 2009 Communes Law, these instances integrate communal councils, social movements and other local organizations and can, in turn, be aggregated to form communal cities, federations and confederations. All instances elect spokespeople and have an assembly as their highest decision-making body.

The meaning of the May Day 2021 Online Rally
>The May Day rally both reflected and anticipated enormous changes in the world situation produced by the coronavirus pandemic.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/05/04/pers-m04.html

The May Day Rally was excellent. I hope more people will watch the recording of it, if they were not able to attend the live rally.
The two major eye-openers for me were that the pandemic will not end under capitalism, not until after the working class takes political power. Secondly, that the trade union bureaucracies are past their 'death agonies' – not simply moribund, they have attached themselves to the capitalist corporations and state completely, like a fungus feeding off a rotting stump. The working class today has no representation outside of the ICFI.

How do westoids cope knowing their day in the Sun lasted a mere 200 years or so before China retook its spot as the major center of human civilization? How do they cope knowing that China could only have become the center of global civilization due to Europe’s actions? How do Europeans in particular cope knowing their domination of the entire human race really only occurred in the 19th Century and then they destroyed it with the World Wars (muh Spanish Empire muh Dutch, etc. don’t count since they only dominated the New World and the slave trade before the 1800s and the Anglos are barely European anyway)?

Pretty easily because it won’t create a material or cultural difference in 99% of their lives.

Unless China has a radical change in policy what do you envisage actually happening? Currently the only difference I see will be the US moving towards more covert interference over boots on the ground (which as been steadily happening).

Nukes and globalised trade have also really killed the idea of a uni polar world power

I find it interesting that in the west, socialists who are anti tankie almost always prefer the bourgeois dictatorship. I don't know if this is because they just immediately think of the Soviets or they don't know that this includes many things from law to police suppression of uppity capitalists and their expropriation through policies.

In bourgeois society, whether democratic republican or despotic, the working class is highly politicized. This means any time there's a strike or unionization or working class parties, they are framed as disrupters and utopians and idiots etc etc because they don't know how political economy works. There are many policies that the police and government will look away from when it protects the bourgeoisie and oppresses the working class even more. I'm bourgeois society the bourgeoisie are depoliticized which means everything they do is framed as "pure business, no politics".

The inverse of this is the dictatorship of the proletariat which has the same qualities but makes the bourgeois class as the politicized class and the disrupters of peace and economy every time they try any funny business. Strikes and organizing are depoliticized are are "pure business, not political", in the dotp.

So what is it with western socialists aversion to "tankies" and the dictatorship of the proletariat when it's nothing but an inverse?

c. From my last post, any kind of action in order to further class interests will inevitably force you to act in a political way and acting in a political way means you're in conflict with the opposing class, which means you'll need some form of power to execute laws into being. Which means the bourgeois class becomes the dissenting ones and the ones that are needing of policing.

It's a matter of class interest, OP.

Western lefties are mostly petite bourgeois douchebags who want to make dad angry while away at university by waving the scary bad no-no flag with the farming implement and watermelon smasher.

They don't read Marx or Lenin or the histories of the many places they have opinions on. They don't even read their own "superior" woke theory written by grifters and hippies.

The western left is a thoroughly infiltrated, ideologically confused mess.

Navalny vs Assange, or the geopolitics of selective outrage
>Assange is being made an example of in retribution for the heavy blows he struck against imperialist interests. The same interests mandate support for Navalny, who offers himself up as a tool for realising their designs on Russia.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/04/21/pers-j01.html

Mind numbing, sickening hypocrisy of Western imperialism. Navalny is an anti-Putin fascist stooge. Assange is a hero of the international working class. The WSWS is spot on with this article.

Thoughts on this site? found it a year ago, I think, thought it was just a bunch of random texts strapped together but eventually realize most of the theories it contains are leftist and anti-government, most of them, at least. Thanks to the site I found out about this rather mysterious anti-communist secret organization https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Cercle, https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1057%2F9781137388803_11

Could it be an insane leftist boomer?
