No. The regime props up a bunch of NRx and capital T Traditionalist voices in order to boost right wing support abroad and to neutralize reactionary opposition to Putin. Dugin's job, for example, is to paint Russia as a mystical Platonic empire that is the last stand for classicism in the face of the degenerate and materialist west.

Capitalism is simply incompatible with environmentalism. If you had green capitalism it would be neo malthusian and incredibly unpopular because in order to sustain the level of inequality produced by capitalism it would have to degrade workers living standards. The only politically viable green system is one that compensates falling living standards due to cutbacks for environmental purposes. Again, this is just on the political level, assuming a truly green capitalism is even practically possible, which again is also pretty dubious. But even if it were it would be so unpopular as to make it politically impossible. In order to have an actual green economy which the majority will buy, it will have to cut off excess consumption of the upper classes.

Torquemada syndrome is a phenomenon that manifests itself as a vicious hatred for jewish population from people who are themselves of jewish origin.

Tomás de Torquemada was a Castilian Dominican friar and first Grand Inquisitor in Spain's movement to homogenise religious practices with those of the Catholic Church in the late 15th century, otherwise known as the Spanish Inquisition.

Torquemada, who himself had converso ancestors, was one of the chief supporters of the Alhambra Decree that expelled the Jews from Spain in 1492.

US jobless claims at 730K, still high but fewest in 3 months
Jobless claims declined by 111,000 from the previous week to a seasonally adjusted 730,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. It is the lowest figure since late November and the sharpest one-week decline since August. Still, before the virus erupted in the United States last March, weekly applications for unemployment benefits had never topped 700,000.

Prisons Prime Testing Ground for Dehumanizing Hi-Tech “Advances”
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is coming under fire again from Democratic lawmakers, as well as from the American Postal Workers Union, who are calling for President Joe Biden to pave the way for DeJoy’s removal after the Trump-appointee announced higher mailing fees and logistical changes that could further slow down mail. The US Postal Service (USPS) has already suffered a more than 50% drop in on-time arrivals for first-class mail deliveries, according to the service’s own data. Nevertheless, thanks to the ubiquitous presence of high-speed internet, the personal communications of most Americans don’t seem to be fundamentally affected by the problems at USPS. Excluding the mail-in-ballots controversy leading up to the 2020 presidential election, the majority of the country remains little more than a curious spectator in what seems to be the inevitable demise of legacy long-distance message-carrying methods in the midst of a blossoming technological wonderland. But, at least one key American demographic could well prove to be the canary in the coal mine in terms of the implications of a fully digitized mail system. The 2.3 million people currently incarcerated in America’s prison systems could be on the verge of altogether losing the privilege of receiving physical mail from friends and family if the Biden administration does nothing to stop the growing trend of handing over prison mail operations to companies like Smart Communications and its “Postal Mail Elimination” services.

Is whataboutism a valid logical fallacy or just a way to control the flow of debate? Does it really give us a closer step to attaining the truth? Let's suppose this scenario:

1 American: The Soviet Union has human rights abuses
2 Soviet: America still has Jim crow
3 American: THAT'S WHATABOUTISM

picrel was an analyst at the CIA who wrote a doctoral dissertation examining various terrorist and revolutionary organizations and concluded the centralized orgs had a better chance of surviving.

Its an interesting take on counterintelligence and OPSEC from a non marxist perspective, and ultimately from a guy who was an expert from the natsec community.

IMO marxists should engage more with literature like this.

But Isis was arguably harder to fight against precisely because of its decentralization i.e. their whole "lone lion" strategy where people's connection to the core would be merely ideological and not organizational.
On the other hand only Al Qaeda could pull of something like 9/11.

Been quite a long time since I learned about it but ISIS ran basically as an extortionist cartel, paying people as mercenaries and putting contracts on locations that bands of mercs armed with technicals could take and collect the reward, then buy more technicals, then warlords could loot and extract tax from the populace to fund more mercenaries, the process repeating itself until it comes across well armed and organised armies. It's a good structure for taking over a lawless warzone and turning it into Ancapistan, but you'll have problems when you run into something like the mobilised SAA and have pissed off the world enough that the USAF and EU starts bombing the shit out of you.
It's sort of a contrived centralisation via warlordism and fascist mercenary armies, but no rulebook with regards to infidels means that the ideological component could flood Europe with cells and instigate lone wolves, and money probably changed hands at some point with the European terror attacks we don't know about, outside of simps detonating themselves FOR FREE.
