The distinction is that one was a group that was held on glorified trespassing charges, and some of those people are still being held in isolation. Which, not only violates their human rights, but also their rights as US citizens.

>But McCathyism happened. Are you so high on the need for a victim narrative that you need to actually deny that the US heavily suppressed communists during the cold war? Yet somehow were the dishonest historical revisionists here.

Yet none of the people in the Venona report, the people he was alluding to, ever faced any jail time. People suspected of being assets of the USSR, and under investigation for this. When the progressive media was reporting on this and trying to harass him to giving the names, they were doing so to sabotage the FBIs investigation of the assets in the Venona report. McCarthy go no-one jailed or harassed, but was demonized for thing s he never did, nor were involved with, and which to a large extent, just didn't happen.

Quite a few comments on this video claim that Cockshott is misrepresenting Hegel's work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kjja-oNyfdI

Is Cockshott correct, is Hegel just doing intellectual sleight of hand?

The video itself seems to be part of a series responding to comments from his blog where he seems to claim that Dialectical Materialism was invented by social democrats to corrupt Marx's work.

I don't have the patience to read a dozen books on the Holocaust to try figure out what happened. I've encountered A LOT of dishonesty from BOTH SIDES. Things like selectively quoting people disinguously or outright lying. It's obvious that A LOT or even MOST Holocaust propagandists (for or against the official narrative) don't care about the truth and just want to brute force their own narrative into the public consciousness while discrediting the other side.

Which book do you recommend from EACH SIDE of the Holocaust debate? at most I'm willing to read two books, one from each side, so I need it to be the most honest propagandist from each side. The best Holocaust denial / "revisionist" book, and the best Holocaust believer book. I read a lot of Germar Rudolf's lectures on the Holocaust many years ago. I've also read all of Daniel Keren's 'Holocaust Denial and The Big Lie' and a bunch of other texts written on places like reddit over the years to debunk holocaust denial.

Also, if there are any decent debates between reputable representatives from each side, that might also clarify some things. each side brazenly lies about the other so often so they'd probably be less likely to do so if they're face-to-face with someone who could call them out.

Morality is not real—it is a Stirnerite “fixed idea”, if you will. To put it another way, “morality” is a human-made construct that does more harm than good. Don’t take it from me; take it from Lao Tzu, who wrote in the Tao Te Ching:

>The great Tao fades away

>There is benevolence and justice
>Intelligence comes forth
>There is great deception

>The six relations are not harmonious

>There is filial piety and kind affection
>The country is in confused chaos
>There are loyal ministers
(Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu, Chapter 18, Derek Lin translation.)

Here, Lao Tzu is saying that when we deviate from the Tao—say, how we naturally act—we are forced to fall back on man-made concepts such as “benevolence,” “justice,” intelligence,” “morality,” “spirituality,” and so forth. Indeed, all these concepts are relative—who is to say what is objectively good, bad, moral, and the like? In “The Unique and Its Property,” Stirner showcases some brilliant examples of the relativity of morality, with choice quotes such as: “Now we are so thoroughly religious that sworn-in jurors condemn us to death, and every policeman, as a good Christian, takes us to the slammer by ‘oath of office’,” (The Unique and Its Property, p. 44) and “When the guerrillas drew their country’s enemies into ravines and shot them down from the bushes, unseen, wasn’t that assassination?” (id., p. 45) Morality is decisively relative, and “objective morality” is—not real.

This isn’t to say that I believe that humans have the capacity to force themselves to be “amoral”, so to speak. We can take some simple lessons from Dostoevsky here. In Crime and Punishment, the protagonist Raskolnikov kills an old lady and her daughter and can’t bear the guilt. In the censored chapter of Demons, the main character Stavrogin confesses to a priest that he had sex with a very underaged girl and stood idly by as she killed herself in the other room—Stavrogin suffers spiritually despite being the apotheosis of the amoral nihilist. In short: when one does horrible things—horrible being relative to the individual—they will naturally feel guilt. That is, for moPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

the problem with any idea of [thing is natural and we naturally follow thing - we deviate from thing] is that it has to rely on an outside reason (e.g. in daoism, it can be immortality, or being more proficient in what you do, etc.) as to why we should revert back to a natural way (which we have to be told, in a book…).

The real problem being solved by both Stirner and Laozi is that we feel a dissonance and stress when we have to make decisions, or concentrate, and when we feel that there are consequences that we want to avoid. The ultimate teaching from them isn't that we aught to act one way or another, it's literally just "be a chad and own whatever you do, and don't let people tell you that you're not what you are or you aught to be a different way".

We're all egoists. The point is only that if you own being an egoist, then you don't suffer from cope.

(i dont mean to say that this is all Stirner or Laozi have to offer, but only so far as normative ideas of theirs and the idea of identifying what is natural in everyone, and then also choosing to follow it.)

Also you should have quoted the part of the DDJ that's talking about how morality makes people rule-followers rather than spontaneously and authentically nice

It's cool to see the shift

Daoism overall as a way of thought is basically a meaningless term, since it's come to encompass just about everything. It's important to pick out which schools of thought.

Should housing be considered private or personal property? In Capitalist countries, the population is used to a mode of production where we either rent our own homes, or we take out a huge usury financial morgtage in order to pay for it. Should socialists/communists take a distributive role towards the solution of housing and distribute all homes as reclassified personal property to everyone? Or should housing be completely collectivized and not owned by anyone, ignoring the huge culture/narrative of people spending their entire lives to buy living space? I imagine the complete collectivization of housing wouldn't be something that connects with the proletariat or petite bourgeoisie in any sufficiently advanced capitalist country.

Countries like Cuba and China today have some of the biggest housing ownership rates in the world and other socialist countries like Gaddafist Libya also followed this too. However, there have been socialist countries like the DPRK that just collectivize everything.

>If you allow people to own land then the question always becomes "How much?" Can you standardize the amount of land owned from one end of the country to another? Without tearing down every single existing home and replacing with standardized blocks?

How much is a decision only the proletariat as a whole can make. Naturally those with many large plots and many homes being the bourgeoise/PMC's, that own them will be seized. They will get salty but it's a Marxist revolution so they were already butthurt.

>Otherwise there is a degree of inequality you must be willing to accept.


Why that was the outcome anyways even in public housing you speak of, we'd have to tear it all down to get everyone a equal sized commie block house Public or personal ownership. That's all to much so as long as all people have a suitable home it should be alright if someone has a extra 1000 square feet Or one has a few more acres. Some will have families that need bigger homes others will be a single lad that only needs a little apartment. Naturally our needs are unequal!

You’re not it very smart it seems. You’re also arguing abstract concepts and not the question itself of housing. Which have real economic solutions that don’t involve lofty concepts like personal property. Marx never even went deep into the question of “personal property” because he thought it as so superfluous and not worth giving attention. But Engels released an entire book on the housing question and proposed real answers, economic ones. Your just using lofty shit that doesn’t mean anything.

Is the contemporary war of rhetoric between radlibs and wignats completely missing the point? The former posit that more "diversity" will lead to increased innovation, creative ouput (and therefore standard of life, etc.); the former posit that less "diversity" will lead to increased social cohesion (and therefore standard of life, etc.). However the mechanisms resulting in the stagnation of innovation, creative output and the decline in social cohesion is not actually due to the social superstructure but rather the decaying state of finance capitalism. The economic impact is actually a universal intersectional impact by which all identity groupings are affected. Fighting over the justice of a failed distribution system is self-sabotaging when you could fight to reorganize the distribution system itself, and address the inequities it outputs at a source level.

I think that's right. I think both groups (generally speaking) work in different industries, like globally-integrated services and technology vs. traditional industries and land-based industries (like farmers). So for the liberals, "innovation" and "diversity" is celebrated while the conservatives do not like "diversity" because they're more tied to land or national industries which are threatened by foreign competition. For the conservatives, the impulse is to build walls and hoard what we have, instead of dividing up what we have. For the liberals, this seems like the height of delusion and threatens to undermine the foundations of the modern economy on which we depend.

Cuban president denounces US-backed ‘media terrorism’ while addressing massive supporters’ rally
Speaking to thousands of supporters in Havana on Saturday, Diaz-Canel claimed the narrative that there is widespread unrest in Cuba is a false one. He was joined by former President Raul Castro, 90, while he addressed supporters. The ‘lie’ being pushed through viral social media images and foreign politicians and activists is not “by chance or mistake,” Diaz-Canel said. “All this is the cold calculation of an unconventional war manual,” he claimed. The president had previously blamed the protests on “foreign meddling,” pointing to the US as the likely culprit behind the demonstrations.
