Ever stop to listen to the voices of the most powerful people in the 20th century? Here are a few:
>Lenin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzf3FRSbEUk
Here he sounds like a lawyer delivering a closing argument, verbose, purposeful, language, controlled, almost patronizing, tone. Kind of annoying after a while but it's clear that Lenin is a guy with a lot to say and he's just trying to get through it.
>Stalin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ay5GzJreY40
Stalin sounds like a regular Georgian country dude, and Georgians sound like Italian Russians. He sounds like a guy that would be selling tickets out of a stand. Not a great voice but I can respect the hustle.
>Mussolini https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpn9iPLbNDc
Mussolini sounds like an actor delivering lines in a play. This is unsurprising given that his entire character was modeled off of a popular Italian movie star in the 1910s. Anyway, it's strongly projected but still totally controlled, again like an actor.
>Hitler https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ3N_2r6R-o
Hitler's speech to Krupp Factory employees could be played over footage of Germany's declaration of war on the USA and I'd believe it. Hitler takes every opportunity to go unhinged for emphasis, to the point where he's screaming at the audience at times. Whether or not it's an act, he sounds like a schizo, totally dedicated to whatever he's yelling about.
>Mao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLeympkNurk
What to say about him, he sounds pretty timid and soft-spoken, maybe because he was a librarian? Maybe because he has such a strong accent and it's clear that he's working through it? Despite the voice, the guy turned out to be a pretty smart military and political leader, so don't judge a book by its cover as they say.

I'm a US born Mexiburger, but man I really, really admire Allende. I saw the Patricio Guzman Allende doc on him and it furthered my admiration for him. He really seemed to me to be a bright spot in what is often a very hopeless and bleak continent, and despite his bourg background he genuinely cared enough para el pueblo and his socialist project that he stuck it out in The Coin™ right until the bitter end.

I kind of want to grab a little Venceremos Allende sticker to slap on my laptop or something as a dogwhistle but that seems kind of autistic when I'm not Chilean

Why do people ignore the microeconomic factors of market socialism? It's always about Tito or Deng or the IMF
Mises and other faglords used microecon to "prove" the ECP going off the basis that a planned economy could never account for shifts in taste or demand, ignoring the fact that the production of some vital goods are necessary to like… live
Or atleast that's how I saw it, I don't know how the socialist economy would handle markets outside of Dengism giving business autonomy as long as they sing Chee Lai
How would or has Market Socialism impact/ed the individual level and the domestic "business" level?

where do you think polls come from? what do you think the sample was? they almost definitely were not sampling from taliban sympathetic areas or population, or otherwise anti-US populations, and even if they did the people whos home is currently occupied by the US are probably not going to be eager to say "america is the greatest threat to world peace" in a survey carried out by westerners

Heavy industry is a requisite for socialism. The capital turnover is low so when Khrushchev relaxed constraints and encouraged profitability, it made the managers not want to invest in heavy industrial development because recouping costs would take longer
But in the 1930s we saw how a socialist state could overturn this law of capitalism, and prioritise heavy industry, with earth shattering still unparalleled results.

If cryptocurrency is such a threat to governments according to shitcoiners themselves, why haven't they banned it yet? Not even regulations to cryptocurrency are currently in sight.
All governments are quietly letting it spiral out of control, some are even adopting their own digital coins.

Blockchain is just a distributed ledger system, a neutral development in computer networking technology, but “cryptocurrency” is the attempt to use it to create digital cash, which has failed because whatever the prevailing currency is in a market is always more valuable as the fundamental medium of exchange because it’s the one the state requires payments in. And I’m not even trying to do some MMT shit directly, I don’t care here about what gives a currency value as a unit of account in general. It is just self-evident that there are lower socially determined transaction costs associated with dollars than any cryptocurrency. You need to switch your shit for dollars at some point to pay the government, which goes moreso for businesses, which are the primary nexus of transactions in the economy. If you risk your capital on a venture you don’t want to be audited or deal with legal troubles because you’ve got some ideological interest in Bitcoin or some variant. At most, you may start accepting Bitcoin to draw market share from those people, but you are constantly flipping it back into dollars. And given that Bitcoin is periodically rising in value, there are disincentives to actually spend it in transactions because it resembles a speculative asset. Why spend your Bitcoin when you can just use cash and hold the Bitcoin in case it goes up again, or goes up more in the case of bull runs?

But the less people attach it to real economic transactions because of how common sense and risk-free it is to just transact in dollars, the more it just appears as a zero-sum speculative asset. Feel free to try to make money off of it, but it’s just gambling in a game of musical chairs. People pivoted to calling it a “store of value”, but a store of value is a hedge against market volatility. It isn’t a get rich quick scheme. The market and Bitcoin are skyrocketing right now, which clearly points to it just being another speculative asset in an asset bubble. If the market tanks people are more likely to cash out of Bitcoin along with everything else in a panic to move to low-risk assets.

Why did they murder so many people?
Was it just political power play or do they get a hard on when they see people dying?
Will those murderes get into jail or would it be more satisfying to get them to court for high treason, which still has the death penalty on federal level?
