>“You are forced to make a particular kind of movie,” [George] Lucas said to Rose, complaining about the need to make profitable films. “I used to say this all the time when people — you know, back when Russia was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

I've loved video games always wanted to be a game developer since I was a kid. However after doing a bunch of research I find the industry is scummy, ruined by capitalism of DLCs/MTX, etc. Its almost like any creative medium, whether traditional art, games, movies, etc. is ruined by MBAs and the profit motives and its funny how gamers can realize this and bitch about it nonstop when it comes to companies making every game into a glorified whale hunting lootbox/barely legalized gambling for children. However gamers are notoriously right wing and anti communist as well (ex: Destiny, Sargon, Quartering etc.).

Even high art is just a tax racket for the super wealthy, and relies on wealthy patrons (and always has). Opera, Orchestras? the same. Hollywood is shit too.

Reading all this shit of how hard it is to make it in a creative industry, and to do so you would have to be as scummy and exploitative as these fucks has really black-pilled my dreams. Isn't there anywhere someone can tell a great story under capitalism, or make a great piece of art, or music, or game without it being financially impossible or MBAified shit? Art shouldn't be transactional yet thats exactly the hole that capitalism forces it into. Even novelists are forced to write to a certain genre and play the capitalism game to get published.

Its well known (capitalist realism and all) that art, music and cinema under capitalism is becoming stagnant and bad. I don't think this is because of a lack of creativity of people, in fact I think that the fact we have the few good creations is really is a testament of how people have been able to succeed despite the system not because of it. Art will always be mediocre if it is designed by a room full of passionless soulless MBAs in a way to maximize shareholder profits.

The truth is art will never be truly great until it is free and will never truly be free until it is made free from the need to profPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyway, this is why art is my hobby and not my job. If game design wasn't so industrialized, so notoriously abusive and so competitive (people make games for free!) I would probably be in the industry.
But if it's your hobby, basically all that's at risk is your reputation, which can be mostly avoided by using a pseudonym.

Thoughts Eldridge Cleaver, he was an influential black panther member and one time leader of the group

he was originally a black nationalist and Marxist, actually got kicked out of BPP cause he wanted "real violent struggle" i.e direct war against the United states(which would have gotten them all killed tbh) went to meet up with various left wing intonational guerilla groups, became a born again Christian in France, then turned to Islam, then Catholicism, tried making up his own religion mixing Christianity and Islam he called 'Christlam' and finally settled with Mormonism in 1983 and then ended up a Republican as well

overall he was a horrible person(raped scores of black women and his justification was that it was practice for him to rape white women and not get caught and also that he could rekindle his passion for black women that he had lost that he blamed on white supremacy)

No he didn't, Eldritch Cleaver was already known before the book came out. It increased how well known he was to the public, but he was already a known figure before then. The book also came out in 1968, at which time Cleaver was fleeing to Cuba (which also ended shortly due to his deteriorating relations with the Cuban government), and then to Algeria. Shortly after he was then kicked out of the Black Panther Party sometime in 1970. So at best you could say that during a year to 2 year period, people had the opportunity to read the book before he was kicked out. Even then, he insisted even in the book that he renounced the use of rape and his own racist views upon being introduced to Malcom X and eventually the BPP, and so the acts undertaken by him at that time has no relation to the BPP as a whole. There is no proof I can find that the BPP knew before hand either before him joining them.

To be clear, I don't mean this as a defense of the CIA at all. In fact, I often tend to lean towards thinking the CIA is guilty rather than not myself, but I wanted to make this post just to try and pick apart my own views critically.
I frequently see people confidently claiming that the CIA was involved in [insert basically any notable political death/murder or socialist coup] in leftist circles. And to give some credit, I think some of these are pretty public knowledge. In most cases, there is no verifiable information that could link the CIA to the death, but I get the feeling that leftists are sometimes quick to jump at any "unusual circumstances" around a death as CIA-related without a very strong link.
What separates these from just being the left's own flavor of conspiracy theories? Even with the most conservative interpretation of CIA history (e.g. things that have been definitively proven) would they still be anywhere near as dangerous as they seem?

the CIA in decades have continued their usual clandestine fuckery but they have taken to privatizing and outsourcing their actions. Groups like the National Endowment for Democracy now do the logistical work of staging coups and training reactionaries on behalf of the CIA so that the CIA has plausible deniability. More attention ought to be paid to CIA front groups and propagana outlets like the NED, RFE, RFA, etc.

I was also curious as to how you think left wing politics would improve the quality of life since I capitalism has increased the quality of life a lot compared to decades ago.(allow this topic for now pls)

Meanwhile, on planet Earth, there is reason to believe that in fact a fair degree of election fraud was committed in Trump's favor. In seven out of 26 states where exit polls were conducted, the exit polls deviated from the tallied results by such a wide margin they would have failed the state department's own standard for verifying other countries' elections as free and fair. Six of those seven were in Trump's favor, one was in Biden's. None of them were large enough to alter the outcome of the elections in those states, so ignorant and proud Americans can once again pretend that there's nothing at all to worry about what multiple studies have described as one of the least transparent and accountable electoral systems in the developed world.

No, I just bothered to read him.
>Fyi, i did read like 50 pages of the first volume. Then stopped: i felt like i needed more in depth knowledge of philosophy before continuing.
No, you really don't. Capital is written in such a way that you really do not need any prior philosophical knowledge outside of some basics, because it's largely not a work concerned with philosophy, but rather an analysis of how capitalism developed and what mechanisms define it. If you had said you needed more in depth knowledge of the classical economists, then I could buy that. But saying that you need a more in depth knowledge of philosophy in regards to Capital makes no sense.

Pentagon struggling with recruitment
The Pentagon is “scrambling” for ways to find new recruits as multiple branches fear they will not reach their annual enrollment goals, with the number of young Americans willing to join the military hitting its lowest level in 15 years.

According to an internal Defense Department survey seen by NBC, just 9% of eligible citizens aged 17-24 have any intention to serve in the armed forces, the lowest number since 2007. Coupled with a fall in the overall number of Americans qualified to join – which has dropped from 29% to 23% in recent years – one senior Pentagon official involved in personnel issues said the military now faces a “recruiting crisis.”

“As the military has gotten smaller and the public has gotten less and less familiar with those in uniform, [the crisis] has grown,” the official told NBC, adding that “Covid accelerated it.”

While the pool of potential recruits has gradually shrunk due to an increasing number of disqualifications over obesity, drug use, or criminal records, a growing number of young Americans believe military service is not in their best interest. More than half of those surveyed by the Pentagon, or 57%, said that joining would result in “emotional or psychological problems,” while a similar number cited concerns about “physical problems.”

“They think they’re going to be physically or emotionally broken after serving,” another senior military official familiar with the recruiting problems told the outlet, adding that a general lack of familiarity with the armed forces is driving the crisis.

Though the Pentagon believes parents are a major influence in whether an individual decides to join, the Defense Department survey shows that just 13% of respondents said they had a parent who served in the military, down from nearly 40% in 1995.

Even as the Pentagon faces what the Marine Corps officer in charge of manpower dubbed “the most challenging recruiting year since the inception of the all-volunteer force,” some branches say they should reach their targets despite the difficulties, including the Space Force, the Marines, and the Navy. Others are lagging well behind their goals, however.
