look, i know it's trendy for some to be all about that dialectical life, but let's be real for a sec. the way that social-fascist pseudo-Marxists and pro-China neo-revisionists try to wield dialectics is not only tired but downright oppressive. they act like their version of Leftism is the only way to resist capitalism and imperialism, but they forget that even Marx himself recognized the limitations of dialectics in his later years.

i'm not saying we should all become anti-Leninist Maoists or anything, but we need to recognize that dialectics doesn't account for the fluctuations of reality. it's too rigid and dogmatic for our ever-changing world. instead, we should embrace eclectics, which allows for a more fluid and adaptable approach to revolutionary praxis. we can take inspiration from various theories and practices without getting bogged down in sectarianism.

now, i know some of y'all might be thinking "but what about post-structuralists?? they're all about that anti-dialectical life!" and while i agree that their critiques are important, we also need to be cautious about how we approach their theories. we don't want to fall into the trap of the petty-bourgeois intelligentsia, who use postmodernism as an excuse to avoid taking any real action.

what we need is a safe space, a place where we can embrace the complexity and messiness of reality without getting trapped in dialectical thinking. this means recognizing that our ideas and strategies will always be provisional and subject to change, and that's okay. as long as we keep moving forward and adapting to new circumstances, we can create a truly revolutionary praxis that is inclusive, adaptable, and effective.

peace and love

Say what you want about the exteriors of Soviet apartments compared to the interiors but the repetition and orientation of the buildings creates a visually pleasing pattern to my eyes. It’s simple, no ugly billboards, no weird curves that are meant to waste land, and multifarious but purposefully chosen deviations in design that create meaningful but subtle differences between buildings that all work to create a visually pleasing aesthetic

I feel the same way. I grew up near a very infrastructurally dense area, and I always felt a weird sense of majesty seeing such massive lived-in technological spraw from the freeways. It was the same sort of cold majesty I get from deserts and outer space.

I was getting bored to death


From the 1 September 1918 edition of the Bolshevik newspaper, Krasnaya Gazeta:

“We will turn our hearts into steel, which we will temper in the fire of suffering and the blood of fighters for freedom. We will make our hearts cruel, hard, and immovable, so that no mercy will enter them, and so that they will not quiver at the sight of a sea of enemy blood. We will let loose the floodgates of that sea. Without mercy, without sparing, we will kill our enemies in scores of hundreds. Let them be thousands; let them drown themselves in their own blood. For the blood of Lenin and Uritsky, Zinovief and Volodarski, let there be floods of the blood of the bourgeois - more blood, as much as possible.”

The Cheka… is based

The NKVD… is based


She didn't miss. Lenin was just too chad to die yet.

It probably contributed to the stroke that killed him.


This was just one ordinary day just like this in 1918. People now lack balls and read too few books.

I think we need a socialist state cult, the decline of religion has had some good consequences due to getting rid of spooks but also bad ones due to getting rid of higher meaning/purpose/etc in people's lives. Of course socialism would cure some of the ills of an atomised postmodern society but I still feel like maybe the surety of a state cult would be beneficial as long as it was arranged in the right way. What do you think should be the tenets?

Should we emulate the cult of reason, or secular humanism, or create an entirely new tradition?

Should we be deistic (the universe/existence as god) or atheistic (no god)?

What should the primary object of worship be? The worker, mother Earth, humanity as a whole, rationality, socialism, the state itself (dangerous ground perhaps), or something else?

What rituals should be involved? What festivals and 'holy days'?

Should we approach the project in a stonefaced serious way? Or should the cult have an air of irony to it? Like, we know religion is silly but we're all doing it anyway because it's fun and makes people feel good?

Should the doctrines of the cult be strictly enforced by the state and open to reform via referendum only, or should there be infinite splinter sects as people make their own interpretations?

Should the cult be state funded or funded by the members?

State enforced atheism or nothing. Soviets occupiers turned my local church into a movie theater / night club and I like this concept.

Works of Karl Marx 1843

A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right

For Germany, the criticism of religion has been essentially completed, and the criticism of religion is the prerequisite of all criticism.

The profane existence of error is compromised as soon as its heavenly oratio pro aris et focis [“speech for the altars and hearths,” i.e., for God and country] has been refuted. Man, who has found only the reflection of himself in the fantastic reality of heaven, where he sought a superman, will no longer feel disposed to find the mere appearance of himself, the non-man [Unmensch], where he seeks and must seek his true reality.

The foundation of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being squatting outside the world. Man is the world of man – state, society. This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d’honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion.

Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.

The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo.

Hey remember that time where Sweden was on the North side of the Vietnam War?

Not only did they openly welcome US deserters as refugees, but they also provided wartime humanitarian aid to NV. I can't imagine a European country nowadays being so brave and/or not anti-communist, let alone during the Cold War.

Has South Africa been a success post-apartheid?

Naomi Klein's Democracy Born in Chains article https://naomiklein.org/democracy-born-chains/ highlighted how IMF meddling against nationalisation and for privatisation led to a deeply uneven country: "Perhaps the most striking statistic is this one: since 1990, the year Mandela left prison, the average life expectancy for South Africans has dropped by thirteen years"

Does this analysis still hold up in 2023? South Africa has hosted the Fifa World Cup, is part of the BRICS bloc and is generally said to be one of Africa's most prosperous countries. I want to take mainstream analysis with a grain of salt, but what can people here offer in terms of economic analysis of SA?

Armed Forces Support the Dissolution of the Ecuadorian Congress
"The Armed Forces are not a constitutional court to rule on the decisions of Congress or the Executive branch," said Alberto Acosta, the former president of the Constituent Assembly. Through a broadcast on television and networks carried out on Wednesday morning, the Ecuadorian Armed Forces made a statement on the decision taken by President Guillermo Lasso related to the dissolution of the Legislative branch.

El Salvador sends troops to surround town after police officer killed
Last October, 2,000 soldiers and police surrounded Comasagua about 20 miles (30 kilometers) southwest of the capital, to search for gang members allegedly responsible for a killing. About 50 suspects were detained in two days. And in December, the government sent 10,000 soldiers and police to seal off Soyapango while they searched for gang members.

Woman who killed rapist while defending herself gets 6 years in Mexican prison: "If I hadn't done it I would be dead today"
While the Mexico State court found Monday that Ruiz had been raped, it said the 23-year-old was guilty of homicide with "excessive use of legitimate defense," adding that hitting the man in the head would have been enough to defend herself. Ruiz was also ordered to pay more than $16,000 in reparations to the family of the man who raped her.

ITT: We strategize how to get the military, or significant parts of it, on our side.

The benefits of this in a revolutionary situation are pretty fucking obvious, both historically and theoretically, so we won't waste time on that.

Nightmare mode: Same question but for federal agencies

this is simply not what lumpen means… who told you pinkertons are lumpen? Private security are employed. Lumpenporletariat generally refers to those that live on proceeds of crime. The fact that they will often give themselves up to reactionary forces doesn't make that the defining characteristic.

>Of course they usually are. But it is up to us to do the hard work of finding class traitors among them.


>Again this is in the category of nonproductive socially necessary labor. Workers in this category have identical class interests to the proletariat.
Why is their class interest identical? Could you explain this?

>This is why Wm. Z. Foster focused communist efforts on organizing steel towns. Food and fuel are much more important in war than lead.

Much food production of grains is done by relatively small land owners. I dont know how refinery work is, but I do know that oil rig workers are very well compensated. Do you think that it would be possible to get left politics (in any capacity tbh) back into necessary sectors? It seems like targeted concessions and yellow unions have been sufficient to keep things working in the bosses' interests… On another note, the US is a very large economy in terms of production, yet most jobs are in services. I put this down to huge productivity advances. This has made much of the work either professionalized, despecialized, or highly paid hard labor [or fourth, prison labor, but i think as a % of the economy this is relatively small?]. In this context i think the question is less about the people who control the necessary industries, and more about things like lack of jobs, rents+debts+monopolies, prison industrial system, human trafficking, immigration, etc. These are the more actionable issues I see in the US (tho there are obv active labor issues in traditionally active labor industries like mining and railroading - i just see that the compromise of the golden era has lasted them over. Maybe a point will turn when they suffer enough giPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Is everything longer than two sentences GPT now? Is that what we gone with? So now we have to call everything we don't like that is a tl:dr GPT?


uyghas jst dont like reading shit
to be completely fair though reading a GPT generated post probably is more intellectually stimulating than all these 1-sentence posts that people graciously share with the board
not that i have any room to complain but it's a site-wide problem

Every day you fed boys clock in to work, you should remember something. Your boss does not care about you. Your agency does not care about you. Your country does not care about you. If you continue your work as normal, you will at best push papers until retirement and be forgotten. At worst you will end up dead because somebody considered you a loose end.

However, if you leverage your position to do some good for the world - as a whistleblower or a turncoat - you will be considered a hero by the people even if you are persecuted. You may even be ensuring your survival, since as long as you are one of the shadowy men in black you are ultimately expendable in the line of duty. Edward Snowden doesn't have a great life, but at least the spooks can't just drag him to a black site and torture him to death for practice, because it would only prove him right and create a martyr.
