Peruvian President Castillo under pressure as own party refuses to back cabinet
The changes came after the self-proclaimed Marxist-Leninist sacked fellow Free Peru party member Guido Bello as the country’s prime minister, less than three months after he was appointed. The move led some party supporters to accuse Mr Castillo of “betrayal,” with parliamentary spokesman Waldemar Cerron insisting that its 37 legislators will not support the new cabinet.

Venezuela condemns new attack on its national electric system
Venezuela on Thursday condemned a new attack on its national electric system, affecting 30% of power service in caracas due to a series of fluctuations in the national interconnected system. In phone contact with Venezolana de Televisión, the Public Works and Services Minister Néstor Reverol praised the immediate reaction of the National Electricity Corporation (CORPOELEC) crew to recover nearly the whole system in a few hours.

AMLO’s $9 Billion Pet Project Hit by Strike, Police Violence
The massive new oil refinery for state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos is key to the president known as AMLO’s goal to strengthen state energy companies and to build jobs in Mexico’s poor south, but it has already received its share of criticism. It’s being constructed during a new era focused on renewable energy, it’s running over budget and behind schedule, and it’s being built in a zone the state oil firm had promised to protect.

Shortages and bottlenecks expose anarchy of the capitalist system
In the past months, the world economy has been creeping towards a state of disarray. Shops have been running out of goods; gas stations have been running out of gas; energy prices have shot up; and major western harbours have become completely clogged up with swarms of ships queuing up, sometimes having to wait weeks to unload. Just as we were told that the COVID crisis was over and that life was bouncing back to normal, the world market is feeling the drag of a series of converging crises. From supply chains and labour markets, to the energy sector and transportation: bottlenecks have been mushrooming across the world market, leaving the strategists of capital worried and scratching their heads. Things which were taken for granted, such as the fact that a particular product will be available or produced, and furthermore that it will be delivered within a reasonable time, can no longer be taken for granted. But ask the so-called experts and they will struggle to explain what is fundamentally happening. For them, all this appears as a peculiar concatenation of accidents – all coincidentally occurring at the same time. This goes to prove that piles of facts are of no use if you do not understand the underlying process that they reflect. The wild swings that we are witnessing in the world economy expose a system which is tied up in knots, and which is incapable of responding to the needs of humanity.

I mean the Zionists are smart. On one hand, the Israelis are a nuclear state (Samson option) so if you piss off the Zionists too much, they'll nuke you. On the other hand, Israel is known as the "start-up nation" with only the South Koreans matching them in R&D intensity.

ideologies that hold manage get into power and stay in power aren't based on morality or the best system of government but rather which system appeals to the masses and can also suppress insurrections with military might
It doesn't matter if your fighting for communism, nationalism or in the name of the arab pedophile, what matters is your insurgents are able of body, have the will to fight and use effective tactics, what also greatly helps is their enemies having shitty 3rd world militaries
similarly you have to appeal to the masses, no alienating shit and no transhumanist bullshit, Lenin didn't read out "On Imperialisms" to the Russian masses, he didn't need too, all he needed was to say "Peace, Land and bread"

PSA

The same right wing organizations that instigated the anti-government rallies in July will once again be staging protests in Cuba tomorrow (10/11/21) and November 20th.

https://www.mintpressnews.com/private-facebook-group-organized-july-protests-cuba-plans-bigger-ones-soon/278598/

>The administration team of La Villa del Humor considered the July action to be a roaring success, and the first step toward a revolution that will depose the Communist government, in power since 1959. Fresh from their achievements, the group is helping to organize two new actions: a planned general strike in October and a larger set of nationwide demonstrations for November.


>Sunday, October 10 is Cuban Independence Day and a national holiday. Organizers are calling for it to mark the start of a general strike (paro nacional in Spanish) to cripple or topple the government. An announcement shared on social media (including on La Villa del Humor) states that organizations across the country are gearing up for a strike next week, with hashtags like #ParoNacionalCuba and #SOSCuba trending. “We summon all worthy Cubans, lovers of freedom, their neighbors, their friends and their families, to a National Strike on Monday, October 11,” the communique reads…


>It is, however, the actions scheduled for November 20 that appear to be generating more excitement in the community. Marches across the island are planned, including in Guantanamo, Holguin, Camaguey and Havana, where organizers hope to begin at the iconic Malecón in Old Havana and end up in front of the National Capitol building, the headquarters of the National Assembly of People’s Power.

>The victims of the big evil otherism need to be internal, need to be German, because if it is understood that the primary victims were external, were people conquered in a colonial project, this reflects badly on the west.

To expand on this point, look at how almost every act of imperial intervention, every war is started with either overt or subtle holocaust & nazi references. IE "Assad/Saddam is the new hitler" or references to some kind of "new holocaust" against a particular ethnic minority. The narrative that the primarily victims of the Reich were internal, were German Jews is absolutely essential as a part of this greater narrative which evokes a kind of moral imperative toward intervention in populations in the liberal west.

If the narrative instead is that the primary victims were the conquered, were those who were invaded, the opposite conclusion is reached. Rather than some 3rd world national development leader being the next Hitler or American's geo-political rivals being Nazi-like, instead the US is "nazi like".

So the narrative of a "holocaust" must exist, however much it has fundementally, deeply changed over the year in order to reflect US & Israeli geopolitical needs.

 No.549080

It was a revolution but one limited in scope and flawed in its basic premise. Which is to say, it sought liberty, equality and fraternity by eradicating the aristocracy, but preserved the main essence of what made the aristocracy oppressive in the first place–class society. Thus the French revolution was ignorant of the root causes of the problem it sought to overcome, and predictably, the revolution ended in failure and subversion with the rise of bonapartism. Any revolution which entails only the rearranging of various social classes without a significant reordering of productive relations, that is to say, any revolution besides the communist, is a sub-revolution, a faulty revolution. That's because it will continue to perpetuate a class society despite destroying the dominance of one class and replacing it with another. And that, ultimately, is what the French revolution achieved, the displacement and destruction of one ruling class, the aristocracy, and its replacement by a new one, the bourgeoisie. So essentially it just swapped out one set of problems and eventual instabilities for another set .

If this offends you then you need to learn what Mao meant when he talked about "Seeking truth from facts".

Critically understanding how a historical event is presented, what elements are over-emphasized, de-emphasized or exaggerated is absolutely and critically important. The bourgeois state and it's media rarely outright lie - distorting facts and manipulating half truths are the means by which the bourgeoisie manufacture consent and define narratives which limit discourse and the ability for political work to take place. If you are unable to part from the emotionally charged fictitious narratives built around a selective interperation of facts & manipulating of half truths, then you are useless to the movement.

To promote the narrative of a holocaust, to single out specifically German Jews as victims of the regime while downplaying the tremendous suffering and loss of life of Soviet people, as oppossed an understanding of a broad violent oppression of ethnic & political minorities of which the Jews were a small but disproportionate part is necessarily to align with US and Zionist imperialism and to attack Communism and the USSR. You're a useful idiot and outright dangerous to the movement.

Would reading Marx have saved him? Excluding how much he likes shitting on "leftists" in the first few sections, ISAIF gives off very similarly strong themes to Marx about one's alienation from their labour and how class society subjugates the individual and treats them as a cog in the societal machine rather than a human being.

ISAIF:

>Industrial Society and Its Future lays very detailed blame on technology for destroying human-scale communities. Kaczynski contends that the Industrial Revolution harmed the human race by developing into a sociopolitical order that subjugates human needs beneath its own. This system, he wrote, destroys nature and suppresses individual freedom. In short, humans adapt to machines rather than vice versa, resulting in a society hostile to human potential.


Karl Marx:

>Let us suppose that we had carried out production as human beings. Each of us would have, in two ways, affirmed himself, and the other person. (i) In my production I would have objectified my individuality, its specific character, and, therefore, enjoyed not only an individual manifestation of my life during the activity, but also, when looking at the object, I would have the individual pleasure of knowing my personality to be objective, visible to the senses, and, hence, a power beyond all doubt. (ii) In your enjoyment, or use, of my product I would have the direct enjoyment both of being conscious of having satisfied a human need by my work, that is, of having objectified man's essential nature, and of having thus created an object corresponding to the need of another man's essential nature … Our products would be so many mirrors in which we saw reflected our essential nature.

Equality was, is and always will be an impossibility, this is why we fought and always will fight for it.

Equality has already historically existed, only it doesn't look like you might assume. Equality is not the base-leveling of all things to identicality and negative space.
Equality is multipolarity, coexistence of being without need for liberal signifiers such as 'tolerance'.
Dugin is more of an egalitarian than any leftist.

There are two types of racism: One type of racism is random nobodies who live on another continent who are mad on Facebook about what you are doing. Maybe we will have this type of racism forever, but it just isn't relevant for anything. (Just look away from the screen LOL.) The other type of racism is the one that prevents you from getting a job or a flat. Socialism solves this. And I'm not saying the most clever socialism, the most incorruptible socialism, but just socialism, mundane socialism.
