https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonstandard_analysis
>Much of the earliest development of the infinitesimal calculus by Newton and Leibniz was formulated using expressions such as infinitesimal number and vanishing quantity. As noted in the article on hyperreal numbers, these formulations were widely criticized by George Berkeley and others. The challenge of developing a consistent and satisfactory theory of analysis using infinitesimals was first met by Abraham Robinson.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonstandard_calculus
>This approach formalized by Weierstrass came to be known as the standard calculus. After many years of the infinitesimal approach to calculus having fallen into disuse other than as an introductory pedagogical tool, use of infinitesimal quantities was finally given a rigorous foundation by Abraham Robinson in the 1960s.

>We are faced, says Poincaré, with the “ruins” of the old principles of physics, “a general debacle of principles”. It is true, he remarks, that all the mentioned departures from principles refer to infinitesimal magnitudes; it is possible that we are still ignorant of other infinitesimals counteracting the undermining of the old principles. Moreover, radium is very rare. But at any rate we have reached a “period of doubt”. We have already seen what epistemological deductions the author draws from this “period of doubt”: “it is not nature which imposes on [or dictates to] us the concepts of space and time, but we who impose them on nature”; “whatever is not thought, is pure nothing”. These deductions are idealist deductions. The break-down of the most fundamental principles shows (such is Poincaré’s trend of thought) that these principles are not copies, photographs of nature, not images of something external in relation to man’s consciousness, but products of his consciousness. Poincaré does not develop these deductions consiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Capitalist software is fucking bullshit, absolute garbage, its architecture, implementation, and use-cases, are themselves infested with and defined by capitalism itself. The only rational way of going about working on software as a species is in a global monorepo where every single line is open source, obviously, and every single line is scrutinized to the utmost before it reaches the codebases of the deep branches of functionality. Where every library is made in an architecturally sound way in a way that can be used in arbitrarily many ways for many purposes, or else it is not written. Where experimentation can be done and anything can be stolen from anywhere, without the need to copy and paste but by directly referring to existing code in the monorepo. Where every build is deterministic, every programmer has ample resources to experiment and learn. And this should extend to all human knowledge. I'm so mad.

https://apnews.com/article/business-crime-ohio-united-nations-port-au-prince-bdea158b02a67c4cef77492a89088660

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A gang that kidnapped 17 members of a U.S.-based missionary group demanded $1 million ransom per person, although authorities were not clear whether that amount included the five children being held, a top Haitian official said Tuesday.

The official, who was not authorized to speak to the press, told The Associated Press that someone from the 400 Mawozo gang made the demand Saturday in a call to a leader of the ministry group shortly after the abduction.

A person in contact with the organization, Christian Aid Ministries, confirmed the $1 million per person demand, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. That person spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation.

The adults range in age from 18 to 48, the children from 8 months to 15 years, according to a statement from the organization on Tuesday. Sixteen of the abductees are Americans and one Canadian.

“This group of workers has been committed to minister throughout poverty-stricken Haiti,” the Ohio-based ministry said, adding that the missionaries worked most recently on a project to help rebuild homes lost in a magnitude-7.2 earthquake that struck on Aug. 14.

The group was returning from visiting an orphanage when it was abducted, the organization said.

Responding to the recent wave of kidnappings, workers staged a protest strike that shuttered businesses, schools and public transportation starting Monday. The work stoppage was a new blow to Haiti’s anemic economy. Unions and other groups vowed to continue the shutdown indefinitely.

Porky is based

Yes, the heading/title is clickbait. No, it is not ironic or a shitpost. Compared to the petit-bourgeoisie, the bourgeoisie IS based. STOP SIMPING FOR THE PETIT BOOJ. The petit booj, especially the rural petit booj is even more reactionary and the source of far more rightoid rage than the booj. This is where the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and the Alex Joneses of the world come from.

The full force of neoliberal, malthusian urban technocapital must be unleashed against the barbarians of the hinterlands.

Urbanization is a natural part of the process of proletarianization and therefore progressive. Similarly the process of competition which winnows down the pool of capitalists into smaller and smaller concentrations, into monopolies and oligopolies, is progressive as those companies will ultimately be easier to nationalize than 500 different small mom and pop shops which are inefficient and duplicate tons of work anyway.

Let their farms undercut and bought out, their small businesses driven into the dust, and their towns seized by eminent domain and bulldozed over for agricorps to turn into farmland. Let them be driven into the cities where they can be urbanized and thereby proletarianized. Let capital run it’s course and civilize the savages.

>inb4 some crypto /pol/tards show up to muh blood and soil rural ooga booga


BTW people who deny this are what Marx and Engels would have called bourgeois socialists or petit bourgeois socialists. They want to undo capitalism by going back to some idealized vision of early to mid 19th century economic relations.

No, this is a reactionary process, by in large most oligarchs don't really care about what they are doing, and they let their institutions run off inertia. This results in a society that produces no new art, culture, or technology. A society that is stagnate and will inevitably wither and decline. Yeah their are a few billionaire oligarchs that stand out and do innovate, but they are the exception, not the rule.

So what exactly is to be done about the left's awful image? We can all agree that radlibs make it cringe to be an open leftist, such as on 4chan where I spent most of my time when I was banned from here. It's kind of a shame that you can't just call yourself a lefty without someone who is pretending to be a millionaire telling you how much Karl Marx is a sucky without going into further detail. I think it's because of the fact that rad libs ruin the experience for everyone, they and not decades of old propaganda are doing the real damage to leftism and porky knows it. He attaches leftist labels into liberal causes and then ships them out for lib consumption. So how exactly do we deal with radlibs? We all agree they are a problem but how exactly should we deal with them? I think we should gatekeep them honestly. They should have to be made to repent for being radlibs, make being a radlib in public humiliating (More so than it already is)

>ugh the gommies are so uncool and stupid, insert joke about liberals and dyed hair
>but le 4chan alt-right is just so cool <3 and so important ugh we will never be as cool as them

I had a whole rant here about how 4chan is actually extremely cringe and uncool to young people but it's not worth the effort. you /pol/oids are absolutely petrified to show your true faces in public because you know you'll be beaten with blunt objects by normal people. Suffice it to say that communism is everything your alt-right wishes it was - edgy, sexy, besieged by the powers that be, resonant with the masses, and most of all, GROWING. "sneed" will not win any arguments - bricks thrown by comrades will. Cope and fnord.

On the off chance that you aren't a larping parasite, I think I might understand where you are coming from. You heard the old sayings about 4chan being the source of meme culture and believed it. This was true in the aughts when the site wasn't expressly political and had a more innocent vibe. But the fact is that 4chan is less relevant than ever and diminishing by the day. I used to rely on it to stay 'in the loop' as you do but I soon realized that the vast majority of people aren't keyed in to 'imageboard meta' nor would they want to be, and that there are better places to seek news and discussion.

You aren't keeping your finger on the pulse, but rather a tiny minority of increasingly deranged and irrelevant lunatics. It's only a small number of chinlets, insecure white kids / braindamaged minorities venting their self-hate by larping as aryan warriors, GPT-3 bots and other automated shitposts, and others who are undergoing such a deep identity crisis that they seek the validation of unknowable strangers who might not even be real people. It only appears to be a large number of users because of the sheer volume of garbage they collectively put out.

most ordinary people don't give a shit about this culture war garbage and just want to improve their material conditions. Stop being terminally-online, it isn't good for your head and makes you a worse revolutionary. If you really care about affecting change, it has to start with your own rotten habits and broken thoughtpatterns. As plugged-in as I was, I did it - you can too.

There has been alot of activity in spaceflight recently, especially the explosion in commericial space companies like Rocketlab, Relativity Space and SpaceX.

American rockets have gone from nearly non-existent after the Space Shuttle shutdown to completely dominating the field within a decade.

Elon Musk is now developing a fully a reusable super heavy launch system that will be easily and rapidly reusable. This thing will completely open up Space for business and could make Mars colonization possible

How will this change material conditions here on earth?

Slaughter in Indonesia: Britain’s secret propaganda war
The proof of Britain’s role in inciting what the CIA later described as “one of the worst mass murders of the 20th century” lies in another leafy suburb. In declassified Foreign Office documents – held far beyond the 20-year rule – in Kew in London. Recently released in Britain’s National Archives are pamphlets purporting to be written by Indonesian patriots, but in fact written by British propagandists, calling on Indonesians to eliminate the PKI, then the biggest communist party in the non-communist world.

Steven Estrada, Army veteran and Communist, running for Long Beach City Council
Steven Estrada, a community organizer, U.S. Army veteran, and proud member of Long Beach’s working class, is running for the City Council seat in District 1. If elected, he would serve for a four-year term alongside eight others representing different council districts. All but one of the present City Council members are Democrats, and the mayor, Robert Garcia since 2014, is as well, though the election itself is non-partisan. The primary for this seat will be held in June 2022, and the top two candidates will go on to the general election in November. What makes Estrada’s campaign unique is that he is running as an open member of the Communist Party USA. Will an article about his candidacy in People’s World (PW) hurt him? “The primary goal of the campaign is to win,” Estrada responds. “But also to disarm people from some common beliefs about what Communists believe in. We’re not running from our principles, nor from the redbaiting. We need to answer those questions, teaching and educating people.”

Yemen faces a new war in the oil-rich south
In less than two months, Houthi forces have managed to take control of Yemen's southwestern al-Bayda province, reportedly expelling elements of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), tribal Salafi fighters and pro-government troops. Houthis have now moved into western Shabwah province, under the same pretext of chasing AQAP elements, as more government troops withdraw and amass in military bases around the provincial capital, Ataq. Southern elements accuse al-Islah Party-affiliated government troops of handing over territory to the Houthis while gathering troops to confront southern Shabwani Elite Forces (SEF) in southern Shabwah. While Houthi military gains capture current headlines, the conflict brewing in Shabwah threatens the continuity of the Saudi Arabia-sponsored Riyadh Agreement of 2019, and the opening of a third Yemeni fighting front, beyond Marib and the Red Sea coast, in the south of Yemen.
