They seem like the closest thing to armed resistance to Hitler's regime

To me they seem like todays rebellious anarkiddy teens that were opposed to the authoritarianism and stringent discipline of the german society, although they did at one point almost start an uprising in the Cologne. When the city was bombed out they stole weapons and explosives and together with escaped prisoners and The KPD engaged in shootouts with the army that lasted for days. They seem like something that, had germany won the war could have become a real counter culture movement with chances of becoming a big driver of social change and potential collapse of the regime some 30-40 years later

Just a bunch of disenfranchised kids committing petty crime, a common phenomenon when a society is under stress. Assigning any political significance to them is going too far, whatever pseudo-politics they professed were empty.

>The coronavirus continues to spread through Pennsylvania at an alarming rate, with the state now recording nearly 5,000 cases a day, double the rate a month ago. An average of 40 people are dying across the state each day, and the surge of new cases portends a new wave of deaths in the coming weeks. The number of hospitalizations has doubled since mid-March to almost 3,000, 20 percent of which are in intensive care units (ICUs).


>This rapid rise in cases and hospitalizations takes place roughly a month after schools reopened in Philadelphia and throughout the state, and is occurring despite the ramping up of vaccinations. More than 42 percent of Pennsylvanians have received their first shot and 25 percent are fully vaccinated. However, there are still millions of people who are vulnerable to infection.


>Under these conditions, the spread of more contagious and deadly variants is particularly concerning. An estimated one-third of all COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania are caused by a variant strain, and 28 percent of cases are caused by the B.1.1.7 UK variant. With limited resources for genome sequencing, the true prevalence of the UK variant is likely much higher. The largest group of those infected has reduced in age to those 45-64, and the UK variant has shown a proclivity for infecting young people aged 5-17.


>Despite the fact that Pennsylvania has entered a fourth wave of the pandemic, state officials have explicitly stated their intention to continue the relaxation of standard public health measures.


>Alison Beam, Pennsylvania’s acting health secretary, said the state did not have plans to impose new lockdowns. She encouraged people to wear masks, social distance and get vaccinated, but refused to acknowledge the threat of a new wave, saying, “At this stage, our hospitals have not indicated to us that they are overrun or that they foresee being overrun. That will be truly one of our key gauges of when any further mitigation effort would need to be even contemplated.”

If I somehow managed to get rich I could unleash all kinds of fuckery for years to come.

Starting with decent affordable housing estates and starting co-op industries. This would provide the seed for a socialist revolution to grow from , set the workers up with the means of production and the 1% will be forced to compete in a game they can not hope to win. A co-op doesn't need giga profits , so it can drop the prices of their goods to their actual value and still pay the workers in the co-op a decent dividend every year , No body will be stupidly rich , but everyone will be comfortable. It will be glorious.

I think with a couple of billion I could change the economic paradigm of the world to a socialist model.

A truly socialist world would be better to live in than any decadent porky life, and would allow more meaningful human connections. That said you still need money to live in this porky world, I would personally be happy if I had enough where I never had to work but I wouldn't stop being a Marxist.

The natural state of white people is slavery. Not of slaver, of the slave– the trans-Atlantic slave trade was one of the biggest projection copes in history. Why? Well, examining history, you see that white people have always been slaves, more than Africans, or any race for that matter, whites have always been slaves to their kings, their feudal lords, (now) their bosses, (now) desires they can't control (porn addiction, etc.).
Natural state of the white man is subordinate, which is why now that multiculturalism is introduced, they're getting socially BTFO by POC (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgulDBPAhnI https://youtu.be/LgB7H4REF8o). We literally own the USA's socio-political sphere.
to get rid of slavery we have to get rid of white people, cause they just gonna be sucking peoples dick over and over lmfao :|(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)

If your country isn't in The UN Super Friends, it's not based. Simple as.

Didn't know what thread to put this in since it's worldwide.



>A concept note for the “Group of Friends in Defense of the Charter of the United Nations,” seen by Reuters, states that multilateralism “is currently under an unprecedented attack, which, in turn, threatens global peace and security.”


>US respected intellectual Noam Chomsky expressed his support for creating a Group of Friends in Defense of the Charter of the United Nations, an initiative promoted by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other UN member states within the multilateral organization.


>“[Defending the UN Charter] is a very noble objective. The UN Charter has a lot of good things in it; it’s very much worth defending,” remarked Chomsky


> Venezuela’s Foreign Minister pointed out that his country proposed in 2019 the creation of the Group of Friends in Defense of the Charter of the United Nations, following the US attempt to impose a president in Venezuela who self-proclaimed at a square without being elected.


>Arreaza explained that 20 countries have joined the Group and others are joining it, most of them member states of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), in addition to China and Russia.

The reason Lenin lambasted the League of Nations as a "den of thieves" was because it wasn't actually a true "league of nations" but rather a coming together of all colonial empires. Remember that at that time, with the exception of Latin America and few spots in East Asia, the entire global south was still colonized - how could you claim to represent the peoples of the world when 80% of them are excluded from having a voice.

To compare the UN to that is ahistorical. The UN was one of the great achievements of the Soviet Union, despite its flaws. It was the first time where countries, including the overwhelming majority of former colonies, could negotiate with one another on equal footing, one country, one vote. Sure, the UN is deeply flawed, and was involved in imperialist projects such as the Korean War (but then that was also caused by the USSR not playing their cards right by boykotting the Security Council due to the China issue), but overall such international institutions should be strenghtened, and not equated with a "great transatlantic republic", the US regularly loses votes in the UN overwhelmingly and has to unilaterally implement their bullshit. The UN is also a great asset against Zionism.

Why was soviet military technology so inferior despite the ballooned USSR military budget that rivaled one of US? Just look at F-14, F-15, F-16 and F-18. All were created during the middle of the cold war, yet shot down Soviet fighters with ridiculous KDs.

Most soviet fighter jets could land an take off from damaged airfields because they had jet engine intake flaps and armored bodies that prevented damage from runway debris. American jets have flight crews that inspect runways and remove every tiny piece of debris. In an actual all out war the soviet air force could probably operate much more reliably because they didn't need perfect runways.
>>219986
>incredibly lobsided kill ratios
They don't count the same, the Russians count their planes as "killed" if the airplane gets damaged enough that it can't complete it's mission. The Americans call that a "mission-kill" they don't count their airplanes as "killed" as long as they don't crash, even if they are so badly damaged that they have to be scrapped after.

Questions of technological development aside (which varies massively from case to case, sometimes with Soviet technology actually being ahead.) the top top reason for lopsided KDRs in cases like Iraq is almost certainly differences in pilot experience / flight hours. (shittier export models is also a factor, but I'd rather command the USAF's pilots using Soviet hardware than command the Iraqi pilots using the US's hardware.)

The Cultural Revolution was good, right? To what extent could amerika undergo a similar situation, and is it undergoing such a thing right now?

To a certain extent I feel we can say it is, but only the beginning. If the acceleration of technocapital is the workers' revolution, that is, the forces of production have gone for the revolution on their own and left humanity in the dust, "woke capital" can be said to be the cultural element of the "Revolution". My only fear is that this is the end, not the beginning. Otherwise, a Capitalism which ruins the lives of democrats and liberals who use "ableist slurs" like "st*pid". Certainly the toxic male industrial complex of "resisters" being sent to re-education camps (gulags) to break rocks and learn Foucault is good right? Clearly the Revolution will be guided by identity, regardless of how much you commies don't like it, so how can we ensure the most radicalism? That is, avoid Capital becoming trapped in corporate identity politics and actually accelerate a radical identitarianism?

How can we ensure that the result is millions of amerikans being ruined for not respecting plural-pronouns, (unironically) otherkin, and hyper-decolonization? How do we send the whites back to Europe, unironically?

IF the USA had a successful socialist revolution a much more severe form of cult. rev. should be instantiated as soon as possible. While Mao tried to fight a thin layer of upper stratum (intelligentsia, corrupt party officials, etc.) with his cult. rev. the USA as inherited prior to the revolution needs a severe de-spooking campaign.
