Can we get a thread going for book/movie/podcast/yt channel recommendations for helping to radicalize our normie friends and family? Like, you could tell them to read the Manifesto or read Lenin but if they are normies they are likely to be turned off by the overt "commie" or "tankieness" implicit in these kinds of works. I'm talking stuff that is theoretically sound, but doesn't reveal its power level right off the bat.

Cybersyn couldn't just happen and save the economy, the confluence of political pressure and geopolitical demands made it unfeasible for pretty much every Soviet leader to invest in it to the scale that was needed for its implementation in a reasonable timeframe - pic rel, it was a conversation about it in the /leftypol/ reading group

It should be noted tgat the USSR did start a comprehensive computerization and networking profram call aspr in the late 60s. It was already achieving some good results by the early 80s in gosplan itself and certain ministries.

What would be needed to jeep the economy intact in 91 would be to reintroduce the state monopoly on foreign trade and ban coops that resells state enterprise goods. Those measures at best however would reset things to 1986.

Beyond that they would have to move to a comprehensive rollback of kosygib-liberman reforms and move back to piece work wages and and and…

The big problem with the coup was it targeted Gorbachev rather then Yeltsin. Yeltsin was in he Dacha when it kicked off yet the army hadn't locked down Moscow as the army leadership wasn't telling their men to move their asses and get their tanks in position ASAP and just open them up and race their units to the White House during the middle of the night like they did in Kabul before the main force entered Afghanistan.

 No.547161

It was quite possibly a controlled opposition. And no, the only thing that could've saved the Union was mass proletarian struggle with proper Bolshevik leadership.

The idealism-materialism dichotomomy like the left-right political dichotomy hasn't been relevant for almost 100 years. Materialism has triumphed nearly everywhere and even the pope has to suck it up in some regards. Calling people "idealist" is like calling somebody or something "retarded", I.E: completely useless

The strike wave in the United States heralds a new stage in the global class struggle
>The escalating strike wave in the United States provides incontrovertible evidence that the working class is breaking free of the stranglehold of the reactionary trade union apparatus.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/10/14/pers-o14.html

This is what we expected. This is what we anticipated. The new strike wave in America and the new stage in the global class struggle will transform everything. Only the ICFI anticipated it and prepared for it. While the development of the class struggle is an objective process, by the campaign and building of the rank-and-file committees, the world Trotskyist movement prepared the working class for this. In Sri Lanka, 90,000 teachers were on strike despite the union's attempt to sell out the struggle. The ruling elite, understand the real dangers to their interest by these developments. That is why they are promoting right-wing/ fascist movements

Say you are in a city undergoing a huge famine, where there is nowhere near enough food for everyone eat.
One day while scowering abadone stores you and 9 other men come across 10 loves of bread.
One of the two men demands to take 8 loaves of the bread and force you all to share the other 2.
Another man demands you to share the bread equally with the million of inhabitants of the city.
Now when considering purely from an objective and MATERIAL stand point,
Which of these two men is the greater threat to the wellbeing of you and your family???
And if the man advocating to share the bread with the whole of the city ISN'T advocating in your material interest,
How then could he appeal to you on a Marxist basis??
As the whole of Dialetical Materialism is predicated on the engine of Material class interest.
>TL;DR?
The third worldist position is objectively more opposed to the material interests of the western working class then the position of the national bourg is,
change my mind.

Even if things are muddied in the 21st century, we are still part of a historical continuum ever since the French Revolution. Thinking "bro I'm embarrassed to be a leftist so left/right doesn't matter" is the ignorant and childish American's way of retreating into further individualist nihilism.

Sankara trial opens in Burkina Faso 34 years after killing of ‘Africa’s Che Guevara’
HOPES have been raised that a trial which opened in Burkina Faso today will “shed light” on what really happened to the country’s revolutionary leader Thomas Sankara. He was shot dead on October 16 1987 in a military coup just four years after becoming the African country’s president.

Majority of Israelis dismiss likelihood of peace with Palestinians: Survey
According to a survey by Israel Democracy Insitute, 87 percent of Israelis, including Palestinian citizens of Israel, believe that in the next five years, the possibility of establishing peace with Palestinians is very low. The priorities of Jewish Israelis focused instead on internal issues, with 35 percent saying that stabilising the economy ranked at the top of their interests.

Sudan coup attempt is a warning that civilian transition is in danger
In accordance with the country’s 2019 power-sharing agreement, Sudan has since been ruled by a joint civilian-military transitional government. But amid ongoing tensions between the ruling partners, a coup was thwarted late last month, ironically coinciding with US President Joe Biden’s speech at the United Nations in which he praised Sudan’s democratic transition. Following the failed coup attempt, thousands of Sudanese people staged protests in Khartoum, calling for civilian rule and sustainable peace. The military fired tear gas to disperse them. The 21 September coup attempt came in an atmosphere fuelled by tension, distrust and myriad controversies besetting the transitional government. Immediately after the coup attempt, Mohammed al-Faki Suleiman, a civilian member of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, issued a call on social media for the democratic transition to be protected by Sudanese citizens, noting: “The revolution is victorious.” He is now viewed as a revolutionary icon. Suleiman is also a member of the Committee to Dismantle the June 30, 1989 Regime and Retrieve Public Funds. In the wake of recent events, the military withdrew all security forces guarding the committee’s headquarters. Tensions between the ruling partners went even further when Mohamed Hamdan Dagolo, known as Hemeti, the deputy leader of the Sovereign Council, publicly blamed civilian politicians for the coup attempt. “Politicians are the main cause behind coups because they have neglected the average citizen … and are more concerned fighting over how they can stay in power.” General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the council’s chair, made an even more shocking statement: “Sudan doesn’t have an elected government at the moment and the armed forces remain the custodian of Sudan’s security and unity.”
