China, Jamaica, South Korea, Japan, Moldova, Ukraine, italy and much of post soviet Eastern Europe, all have are now facing active population decline but ironically only really one demographic has actually seen the most of it, ruralites and suburbanites. Not hard to understand, people move to the largest cities where they have the most amount of amenities and opportunities. All that talk internationally about population decline is just about ruralites and suburbanites hitting the fan for the longevity of their communities while the urban portion of humanity marches on to build the foundations for a socialist future.

Who cares about low birthrates?


Yes, lots of former serfs and rural workers in "developing" countries also travel abroad to like the West where menial labor is in high demand if they can't migrate to cities in their own countries


Anon people in developing countries are far more prone to moving to other developing countries for permanent residence than move to an imperial country(unless your from india). The only time places like France Britain America or Canada receive heavy immigration is if they actively promote programs for it. Reminder Britain got its black population specifically because the British government in charge at the time I think a century ago went out of their way to import many low wage workers from the western part of the Sahara as an addition to the already emancipated slave population of the place.

East Jerusalem: Israeli settlers seek to take over Armenian Quarter by force
The Movement for the Protection and Preservation of the Armenian Quarter, in a post on Instagram, warned that tensions were high and that Israeli police had “without probable cause” arrested three Armenians, including a minor, while backing Israeli settlers. “Instead of removing the trespassers, the Israeli police permitted a few settlers to continue their presence intended to possess the Armenian property,” said the community in a statement.

Turkish attack injures four Syrian soldiers in Shehba
Four members of the Syrian government forces were injured on Thursday as a result of an artillery attack by Turkish forces in the self-governing canton of Shehba. The soldiers were taken to a hospital in Aleppo with shrapnel injuries, according to military sources.

Turkey accused of double standard as Armenian journalist's killer walks free
The assassin of prominent Armenian news editor Hrant Dink was freed late Wednesday for “good conduct” in what critics charge is a further example of the politicization of Turkey’s judiciary under the country’s authoritarian president. Ogun Samast was released on parole under the terms of an amnesty law passed in July (one that excludes terrorism cases) after spending 16 years and 10 months for the 2007 murder of Dink outside the office of his newspaper, Agos, in Istanbul.

MPs vote down call for ceasefire: Mobilise to overthrow the warmongers!
It is clear that the establishment has been bruised and battered by the mighty Palestine movement. Repression, intimidation, and smears have proven impotent in the face of these mass mobilisations. But it is also clear from last night’s parliamentary vote that street demonstrations alone will not stop the war. Calls for a ceasefire are not enough. Instead, a mass grassroots campaign must be taken into every community and workplace, into every school and university, with the aim of organising workers and youth in the fight to overthrow the warmongers and their system. The trade unions have an important role to play in this. Their members in industry could easily prevent the manufacture and shipment of arms to Israel, on the basis of a workers’ blockade. And they could call on their brothers and sisters across the world to follow suit, helping to grind the imperialists’ war machine to a halt.

UAW Fails to Win Back Pension Plans for Newer Workers
The UAW strike against Big Auto succeeded in winning impressive wage gains, but it failed to obtain a little-reported demand: that the auto companies reinstate defined benefit pension plans for new employees that had been suspended as a concession during the 2008 Great Recession. Instead, as a consolation prize the auto companies offered and the unions took larger company payments to employee 401(k) plans. This was a significant loss for newer workers who were not grandfathered into the preexisting pension plans. They will receive employer contributions that will rise to ten percent of salary. While that is significantly higher than what most 401(k) plan participants receive from their employers, it will fall far short of what would be needed to provide retirement income equivalent to that of a pension plan. That would require contributions of 25 to 30 percent of salary. Put differently, they will receive one-third to one-half of what workers with equivalent careers received from pension plans.

Israeli army executes an elderly Palestinian after using him in propaganda campaign about its ‘safe corridor’ in Gaza
The elderly man’s granddaughter, Hala Hajji, told the Euro-Med Monitor team that her grandfather was brutally executed while crossing the “safe corridor” when members of the Israeli army intentionally shot him in the head and back. She also confirmed that he is in the photo that was put out by Israel—exposing the Israeli army's dangerous practice of flagrantly fabricating stories.

‘All men 16 years and above, raise your hands’: how al-Shifa raid unfolded
Israel said its troops had killed militants in a clash outside but once inside there had been no fighting. The Israeli army released video showing soldiers carrying boxes labelled “baby food” and “medical supplies”. A spokesperson for the Palestinian ministry of health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qudra, told Al Jazeera Arabic that “only doctors, patients and displaced people” were present when Israeli forces entered the hospital’s emergency department. “We have nothing to be afraid of or hide,” he said.

Politics of the Commons: The Problem with the Representation of the Majority
If the Venezuelan experience teaches us anything, it is that a ruling class that has in its political practice made a rule of constructing opponents tailored to its needs will eventually face the serious difficulty in accurately assessing the historical conflict that once led it to antagonize the forces championing a project with an anti-national and anti-popular orientation. Popular support lied in representing the interests of the majority. However, from the moment the goal of remaining in power takes precedence over the interests of the base as a whole—meaning when the interests of the political class itself supersede those of the majority—a political realignment becomes possible, including the coming to an understanding with some of the forces once considered antagonistic. This realignment inevitably involves making programmatic concessions, which ends up jeopardizing not only the content of the national and popular project but fundamentally the base itself. In a very summarized manner, this is what has been happening in Venezuela since 2016.

Argentina: the position of communists in the run-off election
After the results of Argentina’s general elections last month, the two leading candidates, Peronist Sergio Massa and far-right Javier Milei, will contest the presidency in a run-off election on 19 November. The prospect of a run-off election, a device of bourgeois democracy that is meant to force working-class voters to support one of two capitalist candidates who do not represent their interests, has revealed enormous confusion among Argentina’s largest left parties. On the one hand is the Peronist candidate Massa. He represents the openly class-collaborationist current of Peronism. As sitting Minister of Economy, he has been desperate to keep the economy from going over the brink, at least until after the election. He has deployed a slew of short-term measures to maintain a sense of stability, paid for by printing money. This short-term strategy consists of putting out fires whenever an issue arises, while the underlying contradPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

look into the idea of the "regular culture", look into Situationist International, the concept of the spectacle, "brand" as a super structure and the power of "hyper sigils"

Multipolarism, in its most basic form, posits a world where multiple powers (countries or entities) exist in a state of relative equilibrium, challenging the unipolar hegemony led mainly by the United States post-Cold War. The emergence of China, the reassertion of Russia, the rise of regional powers like India, Brazil, and South Africa, among others, suggest a move towards this multipolar world.

BUT is it rly just Capitalism 2: Electric Boogaloo - Neo-Dengism Edition? To what extent is multipolarism just capitalist nationalism for people not in green on this map? If the whole thrust of socialism is now just "America bad" what becomes of the classical socialist goals of workers control of the means of production, and abolishing class society?

>Pope Francis has slammed the West for murdering Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein and leaving 'organised anarchy' behind as well as saying that ISIS emerged as a result of 'an unfortunate Western choice'

>"It is true. Of the consequences of colonialism and, in particular, the appropriation of their natural resources. But also of the failure of the West in its attempt to import its own type of democracy into certain countries with a culture, I won't say tribal, but of a similar nature. Let's think about Libya, which seems to be able to be led only by very strong personalities like Gaddafi. A Libyan told me that they once had only one Gaddafi, but now they have fifty-three. The Gulf War was a true disgrace, not to say one of the worst cruelties. Saddam Hussein was certainly no little angel, on the contrary, but Iraq was a fairly stable country. Warning: I am not defending Gaddafi or Hussein. But what did the war leave behind? Organized anarchy and more war. Therefore I believe that we must not export our democracy to other countries, but rather help them develop a process of democratic maturation according to their characteristics. Don't go to war to import a democracy that their people are unable to assimilate. There are countries that have a monarchical system and that will probably never accept a democracy, but we can certainly contribute to ensuring that there is greater participation. In any case, I consider myself ignorant when it comes to international politics, but I believe that the appearance of ISIS is based on an unfortunate Western choice."




The last time we had strong multipolarity, it ended up in two world wars. The reason Pax Romana, Pax Mongolica, Pax Britannica, and Pax Americana are named that way is because there was one dominant power keeping trade routes open, and not having huge conflicts with rivals.

multipolarism is a recipie for geopolitical conflict


You can't oppress the world to unite it. Peace based on injustice is war.


we also got multiple successful socialist revolutions
also the conditions are also vastly different, a handful of colonial powers competing isnt the same as the many regional powers emerging among a globalized and a lot more industrialized world


Why are there virtually no women in higher levels of power in communist governments both current and historical? Considering the enormous social gains these countries achieved for women, one would assume these positions wouldn't be completely dominated by men. I'm not a libtard concern trolling, but am curious for what the explanation could be.

Anahita Ratebzad is one woman leader from the top of my head. But women are less involved in political activity overall because of mentality etc. inherited from before socialism, still there were plenty women in political work and just because you don't see them in history books with nice big portraits doesn't mean they are nonexistent. Btw they should put on that name thing we had during international womens' day again sometime.

terrorism literally isn't real pun intended

its just a pejorative used by Nation-States against violence they don't like. The only remotely consistent definition of terrorism is violence from Non-State Actors so just say that instead of some bullshit ass term that more or less exists to justify further violence by going MUH TEBBOBRIBBISM while blowing a hospital full of dying children.

Not really, there has been a few cases of individual IRA members targetting civilians, but very generally they warned before their attacks on economic target, however it did happen to kill civilians as a side effect if the biritish authorities didn't do their jobs properly (by incompetence or malice) however out of all the belligerent of the troubles, the IRA are the ones who proportionally killed the less civilians 30% of their kills were civilians, wheras for the british army it was 50% and it was 86% For the unionists

Yes, nazi GERMANY.

The different material conditions of italy and germany gave rise to different arrangements to preserve capitalism (ie, the worker-bouj relationship), stop coping by insisting on doubting on the source while you have no basis for it at all

In 1920. Frank B. Gilbreth Sr. evaluated the motions of workmen to determine the most efficient techniques to perform tasks
Gilbreth studied the methods of various bricklayers—the poor workmen and the best ones, and he stumbled upon an astonishing fact of great importance and significance. He found that he could learn most from the lazy man!
Most of the chance improvements in human motions that eliminate unnecessary movement and reduce fatigue have been hit upon, Gilbreth thinks, by men who were lazy—so lazy that every needless step counted.”
Another important thing Gilbreth noted was that the so-called expert factory workers are often the most wasteful of their motions and strength. Because of their energy and ability to work at high speed, such men may be able to produce a large quantity of good work, and thus qualify as experts, but they tire themselves out of all proportion to the amount of work done.

"Think Like a Lazy man" is not the sociological breakthrough you think it is.


>making work efficient === just leech of society


If you strip away the intentionally provocative language the only thing they are wrong about is the AI timeline (too conservative)


increasing the efficiency of a process requires the intellectual labour of considering that process and eliminating unnecessary steps. The past labor of automation and planning decreases the socially necessary labor time required to create a commodity by living labour. Marx knew this. None of what Gilbreth was saying was new.


we can't expect our enemies to read theory, and it seems we can't even expect it from our comrades
