Hi fellow leftist!
I'm interested what different fellow comrades think of dekulakization tactics in central Europe. I know Czech & Polish friends that told me stories about their great-grandfathers from countrysides being sent to Sybir while not having any opressive authority over their fellow citizens etc. What's your optics on this?
Did Soviets short-sightedly too measures that needed different approach in other countries than Tzarist Russian? Let me know!

>>1397294 Yeah sure. But it's not like it wasn't operated in countries like Poland, Lithuania, Estonia. You seem angry for some reason. Throwing "westoids" around but doesn't extend an argument. You just close it. It's not helpful, really. And applying analysis onto different things can be helpful in seeing what we definitely won't find in certain optic. Share some thoughts, arguments comrade instead of sitting on your high-horse. Let's educate ourselves, not deminish our curiosities.


The modern equivalent of a kulak is a kulak
There are no more smallholder peasants in the 1st world, almost every farner is a kulak exploiting immigrant labourers at less than even minimum wage


Marxism-Leninism-Kulakism is the way of the future


>In political and sociological theory, the elite (French: élite, from Latin: eligere, to select or to sort out) are a small group of powerful people who hold a disproportionate amount of wealth, privilege, political power, or skill in a group. Defined by the Cambridge Dictionary, the "elite" are "those people or organizations that are considered the best or most powerful compared to others of a similar type."
<American sociologist C. Wright Mills states that members of the elite accept their fellows' position of importance in society. "As a rule, 'they accept one another, understand one another, marry one another, tend to work, and to think, if not together at least alike'." It is a well-regulated existence where education plays a critical role.

Who are the "ELITES" according to the right wing?

When he got that bailout from obama's faction it came with the understanding that he was their boy from then on. He seems to want to be part of the dark enlightenment silicon valley group in recent years, so they other faction might feel betrayed. It might explain why musk and friends are so busy firefighting recently.


"Elite" could also just mean whatever the cultural stigmata is at the time and nothing to do with what is actually the ruling class. This is why you find rightiods thinking that peter thiel isn't part of the elite even though he is rich and funds them.

I don't have any problems with using it myself. Maybe rightoids overuse it to mean anything from jews to anyone who lives in a city, but on it's own it can be a useful synonym for the bourgeoisie.


i guess you believe terms like "late stage capitalism" are useful too lol

There seems to be a bit of a thing among Neo liberal youtubers, and news media about Mexico gaining production from western countries outsourcing it there, they seem to believe Mexico is growing excesively, how true is this? How can I find proof of this? Is this actually bullshit?

All science articles (not made by neoliberal news media) are a mixed bag about this, where can I find hard data about this trend?

No. They tried that with NAFTA in the 80s before China was the primary destination for industrial manufacturing and it failed


yeah people think that americans are highly educated but they are mostly lawyers and businessesmen.


>Didn't AMLO have better relations with Trump than with Biden. Maybe I'm misremembering correctly but Trump and AMLO got along pretty well.
Yes. He is just imitating Bush/Clinton prescriptive suggestion style of diplomacy. He just miscalculates the NATO commitment to turn Mexico into a parking lot.


>Will Mexico actually "become the new China"
Yes if AMLO preserves his leftist ideals so that future admins can continue his tradition. Mexico becoming the next China would mean the US will be in big trouble as it would’ve gained a new adversary just south of the border


For Mexico to become the new China they need to do more than just absorb imperial core jobs. The new India is more accurate. To become new China, they'd need a revolution and a CPM.

Here are a few characteristics of socialism in China bot shared by other BRICS countries or Mexico

1) Never privatised major industries such as energy or steel, which are all public owned. Compare this to the collapse of Yugoslavia, USSR, etc., which were all marked by an immediate devouring of major national industries by private entities: true transitions to capitalism.

2) Land remains collectivised, and leased to private persons or business entities for a maximum of 70 years. This, the absence of land inheritance, and the impossibility of generational land monopolisation, makes possible the extremely high home ownership rates in China (rural: roughly 90%; urban: roughly 80%) compared to other countries.

3) The bourgeois class, while necessary for development and allowed to exist, have no political power over the proletariate, and can not use their fortunes to influence policy, shape laws, or purchase the loyalty of politicians via lobbies and campaign contributions. The CPC is comprised almost entirely of working class representatives, extremely few capitalists. In the highest governing body, the National People’s Congress, there are 26 owners of private enterprises among 2600+ members (2018).

4) In Democratic Centralism, directly democratic decision making through elections proceeds from neighbourhood and local councils up to the National Congress, and from there and above are appointed by elected officials, according to merit. This combines the best of both democracy and meritocracy, while the dangers of both are checked by the other.

5) Never experienced the boom-bust cycles typical of capitalist economies in its 40 years of steady development at a rate of roughly 10% per year.

6) Bottom segments of Chinese society experienced 40% growth since 1979; bottom segments of USA during same period: 1%. If the USA is not a good comparison due to its drastic differences in history and position, a much better one is India, another post colonial nation developing during the same period, which actually transitioned to capitalism: exponentially more inequality, nearly no progress or even regress for the poorest segments of society.

You may be right, however wagner is way funnier than Ukrop banderites so they get my uncritical support


Reminder that the lives of LGBT people has drastically worsened after US intervention in Russia and Ukraine. Reminder that Ukraine is not safe for LGBT people. Reminder that Putler significantly improved the lives of LGBT people since the 1990s (along with russians in general) despite being a fucking drooling retard with regards to social issues, religion, and LGBT problems. Reminder that if the US is against Putler for the same reason that the lives of Russians, which inclused LGBT people, has improved since the 1990s. Reminder that the US uses LGBT issues to push their agenda in Russia that would ultimately harm LGBT Russians long term, and as such, LGBT people have become a target of Russian nationalists. Reminder that the US put Putin in power originally, thwarting the Russian democratic systems, that they now seethe that Putler uses for his benefit. Reminder that the US couped Ukraine. Reminder that Biden's family is on the board of the biggest energy companies in Ukraine. Reminder biden publicly bragged about coercing the justice system of Ukraine to block any investigation into his family. Reminder that the US has been arming, training, and funding Nazis. Reminder that sanctions primarily affect lower class people and that the US has been placing increasingly harsher sanctions on Russia for more than a decade. Reminder that the US has been funding and promoting Nazis since the 1950s in Ukraine. Reminder this is not even the full list of reminders. Reminder that the US has done and continues to do this kind of shit and worse to a myriad of countries around the world.

So shut the fuck up about "not being on either side". I mean this as genuine as possible, and from the inner of my being, fuck you. Seriously fuck you as much as possible. Fuck off, stop calling yourself a leftist. Stop poisoning the well. Fuck you.


>I'm not reading

You mean AP+Reuters+AFP takes on the war?

That being said, if a Command Economy was once again implemented in Greece or Egypt how compatible might the cultures be compared to the times of the culture which was around during their Ancient Command Economy period?

Say for example if they maybe had an Egyptian Command Economy based on the principles of Pharaonism together with Socialist thought?

Abrahamic religious people such as Muslims try to depict Egypt under the Pharaohs as repressive and 'evil', also partly because of their command economy vs the Arabs' and Southern Roman cultures' more decentralized economy too?


>That being said, if a Command Economy was once again implemented in Greece or Egypt how compatible might the cultures be compared to the times of the culture which was around during their Ancient Command Economy period?

Probably like 0%.

Yeah definitely. Everytime i see people freak out about chinlet's antics on social medias and such i never feel disturbed by it because it litteraly used to be the norm on the pre-2016 internet.
Pre-2016 internet was like you were watching a call of duty letsplay then the commentor start going on a rant about how we should round up blacks and torture homosexuals or something then the autoplay start loading a non-gaming video about how the jews stole your foreskin. Same with the degenerate RWer advocating for pedophilia etc it used to be really really commonplace back then, now even the dissident right isnt brave enough to really platform @lolicunni1488.
Also the only leaft leaning content creator online back then were obscure marxists channels with less than 1000 views per videos or lolcow-tier guys like Jason Unruhuesomething. I feel like the Trump era really provoked a reaction among the internet addicted youth that made lots of people become left wing or at least "anti-RW".

A recent poll commissioned by the Fraser Institute, a right-wing “think tank,” found that 54 per cent of people aged 18-34 think that socialism would “improve the economy and well-being of Canadians.” The authors of the study were shocked and appalled at this finding. But it doesn’t end there. According to their poll, a whopping one million young Canadians say socialism isn’t enough, they say that communism is the ideal economic system.


I hate Canada and its obsession with some idea of a timeless culture and society where you celebrate Christmas and Halloween and whatever other ploy to keep the shitty retail industry alive again and again

Pakistan’s ex-prime minister Imran Khan leads rally, ignores arrest warrants
PAKISTAN’S former prime minister Imran Khan rallied thousands of supporters in Lahore today, even as two more warrants for his arrest were issued over his failure to appear before judges in corruption and terrorism cases. Supporters threw rose petals at the convoy carrying Mr Khan to the rally, which drew more than 5,000 people. Since his removal from office by a parliamentary no-confidence vote last April, he has routinely ignored arrest warrants and court summons in a string of cases against him, claiming that they are part of a plot by Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to discredit him.

AIKS-led 10,000-StrongKisan Long March Begins From Nashik With a 17-point Demand Charter
The All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) began a 10,000-strong Kisan Long March from Nashik to Mumbai on March 13 with a 17-point charter of demands—the most important demand concerns remunerative crop prices, especially onions. The crops include cotton, soybean, turn, green gram, hirda, etc. The onion farmers are particularly facing an acute crisis. The crash in onion prices for the past three weeks has brought thousands of farmers to their heels.

Police in India have arrested three men in eastern Bihar state in connection with the death of a Muslim man who was attacked because he was suspected of carrying beef, a police official said. The victim, Naseem Qureshi, 56, died earlier this week after being attacked by a mob on suspicion of carrying beef, the sale and consumption of which is restricted in some parts of the country by local governments.

Aukus nuclear submarine deal loophole prompts proliferation fears
The Aukus scheme announced on Monday in San Diego represents the first time a loophole in the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has been used to transfer fissile material and nuclear technology from a nuclear weapons state to a non-weapons state. The loophole is paragraph 14, and it allows fissile material utilized for non-explosive military use, like naval propulsion, to be exempt from inspections and monitoring by the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Biden announces bailout for wealthy depositors in Silicon Valley Bank
The Biden administration has approved a massive bailout for all depositors with the failed Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), announcing on Sunday evening that they would be able to withdraw all their money when trading begins today. The decision came at the end of a weekend of frantic discussions involving the Treasury Department, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the US Federal Reserve after the bank was taken over the FDIC on Friday following a $42 billion bank run the previous day.

(TrueAnon)Episode 275: Planet Money
Freelance journalist Jacob Silverman joins us to talk about the collapse of Silvergate Capital, the shakedown of crypto, and his forthcoming series on Sam Bankman-Fried and the implosion of FTX’s billion-dollar fraud.

Silicon Valley Bank’s Collapse Shows Little Has Changed for Big Banks Since 2008
Every now and then, a development perfectly embodies everything that’s wrong with an era. The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) is one such development, the culmination of many years of financial recklessness, corporate entitlement, and corrupted political decision-making. The sixteenth-largest US bank by assets up until a few days ago, SVB’s implosion is the second-worst bank failure in US history and the worst since the dominos of the global financial crisis began falling in 2008. Founded in 1983, the bank was the go-to financial institution for the glut of Silicon Valley start-ups that have spread like a rash in the era of cheap money, which was one of the factors in its downfall. When times were good for venture capital, they were also good for SVB, which served nearly half of all US venture-backed companies. Times were particularly good this past decade or so, as the Federal Reserve ushered in an era of rock-bottom interest rates after the Great Recession. Sluggish growth and high unemployment were top of mind for the political and economic elite; low interest rates, the thinking went, would mean a lower cost of borrowing, leading to more investment and more job creation. Things curdled in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, when inflation overtook unemployment as the political and economic concern of the day.

Why does the western media always downplays the usage of the swastika and eagles in the Third Reich? Whether it’s films, video games, documentaries and so on, the symbol is used very sparingly.
The nazis used to put it on everything and everywhere, even Christmas decorations, children’s toys, knives, spoons and other household items.
So why downplay this like it wasn’t important to the nazis at all to slap swastika on virtually everything, that it was a huge trend?

Because they want to make them look cool instead of cringe and they want to present a sanitized image


I haven't noticed this downplaying much, except in some video games but that's because some euro countries ban the depiction afaik.

Got any examples OP?

Whenever I observe the never-ending barrage of social media posts by Republicans decrying the evils of “socialism,” I can’t help being struck by the irony that the Republican Party was in part founded by genuine socialists and foreign socialists to boot. In fact, Abraham Lincoln, one of the party’s most important founding members, though not a socialist himself, undoubtedly read a great deal of Karl Marx’s work via American socialist Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune, where Marx served as foreign correspondent for a decade. In addition, several of Lincoln’s socialist Republican Party colleagues (comrades?), went on to become key supporters of his 1860 presidential campaign, members of his administration or high-ranking officers in the Union Army.

As John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation, points out in, The “S” Word: A Short History of an American Tradition…Socialism, in the midst of the Civil War, during his first State of the Union address, Lincoln felt compelled to mention the growing conflict between “labor” and “capital” and to make clear which side he favored. After touching on a litany of topics including, the war, trade treaties, fiscal matters, agriculture, Native American relations and the need to fill three Supreme Court vacancies, Lincoln requested “brief attention” to “the effort to place capital on an equal footing with, if not above labor in the structure of government.” He continued:

“It is assumed that labor is available only in connection with capital; that nobody labors unless somebody else, owning capital, somehow by the use of it induces him to labor. This assumed, it is next considered whether it is best that capital shall hire laborers, and thus induce them to work by their own consent, or buy them and drive them to it without their consent. Having proceeded so far, it is naturally concluded that all laborers are either hired laborers or what we call slaves. And further, it is assumed that whoever is once a hired laborer is fixed in that condition for life.

Now there is no such relation between capital and labor as assumed, nor is there any such thing as a free man being fixed for life in Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
