Germany got a leader that believed the proper response to a war that killed 15 million people and led to multiple economic crashes all over Europe was the senseless mass slaughter of other europeans and the entire planet and he would go on to trigger a war that would come to kill 60 million people leading to even more economic disasters, multiple human rights violations and a flu outbreak, that same leader was a documented sex offender and now several decades after that horrific event in history broke out a bunch of virgins and druggies in their teens and 20s would go on to worship that bloodthirsty lunatic and commit acts of domestic terrorism often times again towards other europeans as a means of protesting their extremist views hoping to trigger another war that will leave millions dead and potentially 100s of millions of lives ruined….

I don't know how I feel about psychologizing or medicalizing people because of their politics but so many of these people – and definitely the guy I knew – fits the definition of "oppositional defiance disorder." It's not even really "authoritarian" really. It's like seeking out trouble and wanting to be punished and drawing a swastika on my homework to freak my teacher out or whatever. YOU CAN'T STOP ME. YOU WON'T SHUT ME UP. RAAAAGH.

That's probably a big chunk of people who get into neo-Nazi stuff.

Spencer literally comes from millionaire cotton plantation money or something ridiculous. He grew up in a very posh part of North Dallas called Park Cities, I think. It's where the old money, bankers and hedge fund people, corporate executives live. Mark Cuban. Laura and George W. Bush live there.

He had a career track into being a conservative magazine editor but went Nazi fash. Different type than the angry skinhead teens who look up to people like him.

Good working conditions and innovation have been proven to produce more material wealth at a faster rate than simply working longer hours, a society should strive to maintain a standard work week of no more than 40 hours and invest heavily in technology, henceforth an individual person should avoid working beyond 40 hours like the plague and seek promotions or education if working hours start climbing to a point where they work beyond 40 hours or need to take on multiple jobs to avoid work induced stress and fall into drug addiction. No self respecting man should have to enslave themselves to put food on the table every night nor should have to work their whole lives and neglect important things like family community and country

How is Socialism supposed to be fair? How could it possibly distribute limited goods and services rationally and fairly? Take Caviar for instance, it's a food product with a limited amount of production. Under Socialism, who gets Caviar? You can't possibly distribute and ration a "fair" amount to everybody in a country can you? Who gets Caviar first? Who doesn't get Caviar? Is this fair?

How would Socialism go about making Caviar fair?

Socialists make caviar cheap and affordable to everyone while western caviar eaters screech at them, both USSR and China, for making caviar non-elite food. Funny how it works - while under communism, caviar was in every shop, and everybody preferred fish meat, but now, under capitalism, russians just don't consume caviar almost ever, it's all artificial caviar because there's proletarian culture rituals centered around caviar, but proles can't afford real caviar.

Regarding other points: simply removing capitalists and other parasites from the equation vastly improves distribution of goods in an economy. Not letting financial retards like bitcoin miners or cryptofags to even exist will improve the economy significantly.

Leading Russian Communist politician Grudinin barred from running in election after ex-wife reveals hidden foreign investments
According to Gennady Zyuganov, the Communist Party leader, the decision to bar Grudinin is “illegal, unlawful and abnormal.” This is not the first time the controversial figure has been stopped from entering parliament. In 2019, following the death of MP Zhores Alferov, Grudinin was selected to replace him in the Duma. However, the CEC refused to admit him, citing his foreign bank accounts.

KKE: The increase in minimum wage a parody
“The increase-parody of the minimum wage is a ‘freeze’ – for another year – at the miserable levels, which were lowered by a government decision a decade ago, abolishing the national collective labour agreement. The government’s announcement is a challenge to the workers,” the Communist Party (KKE) underlined in a statement on Monday. … Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced on Monday during a cabinet meeting that the minimum wage in Greece will increase by 2 percent.

Sir Keir backs Dawn Butler but says Speaker who kicked her out ‘did the right thing’
The Brent Central MP was ejected from the chamber by stand-in speaker Judith Cummins on Friday after she twice refused to withdraw a remark that the Prime Minister had lied repeatedly to fellow MPs and the country. Ms Butler said that poor people have paid with their lives because the PM has been dishonest about his failure to handle the Covid-19 crisis. Parliamentary rules bar MPs from accusing each other of dishonesty.

How Cuba’s Communists Survived the Fall of the Soviet Union: AN INTERVIEW WITH EVEN SANDVIK UNDERLID
Before the July 11 protests, the last major display of public dissent in Cuba came in 1994, early in the “Special Period” of economic hardships following the collapse of the USSR. Since soon after the 1959 revolution, the Eastern Bloc countries had been important allies for Havana, but Mikhail Gorbachev’s 1980s reforms and then the USSR’s final crisis spelled trouble for Cuba at a time of defeats for the Left across Latin America. Yet the revolution survived — also proving that it had sunk deeper roots in society than Eastern Bloc governments. Even Sandvik Underlid is author of Cuba Was Different: Views of the Cuban Communist Party on the Collapse of Soviet and Eastern European Socialism, a study based on extensive interviews with members of the Cuban Communist Party (PCC) as well as a systematic examination of the party daily, Granma. He spoke to Jacobin’s David Broder about how Cuban media presented events in Eastern Europe, PCC members’ sense of Cuban “national specificity,” and the changes in the country since the Special Period.

Meet Toka, the Most Dangerous Israeli Spyware Firm You’ve Never Heard Of
This past Sunday, an investigation into the global abuse of spyware developed by veterans of Israeli intelligence Unit 8200 gained widespread attention, as it was revealed that the software – sold to democratic and authoritarian governments alike – had been used to illegally spy on an estimated 50,000 individuals. Among those who had their communications and devices spied on by the software, known as Pegasus, were journalists, human rights activists, business executives, academics and prominent political leaders. Among those targeted political leaders, per reports, were the current leaders of France, Pakistan, South Africa, Egypt, Morocco and Iraq. The abuse of Pegasus software in this very way has been known for several years, though these latest revelations appear to have gained such traction in the mainstream owing to the high number of civilians who have reportedly been surveilled through its use.Post too long.

I'm confused about unions. Why do they need to vote from workers to unionize? Why can't they just have a group of people get together and organically negotiate a wage with management? I mean why even call it a union?

If I'm a welder and I'm out drinking with the other workers can I just say "hey everyone let's all agree to have one guy argue for us to the boss to end "certain policy" and if they don't then we will strike" would such a thing be illegal under current American law? Why don't more people do that?

There is almost 0 organizational discussion. There is no tactical discussion: what do now?

One of the most important things is organizing. This can be done by action for shorter workday same wage. You do not even have to mention communism while discussing this. I mean, if a workers do not understand communism and you can't convince him, it does not mean he is not proletariat.

There is very little discussion of this tactics. If there is any, it is superficial.

Most of the discussion on marxism and history of USSR, etc, but there is very little if any, action.

You can popularize short workday (same wage, not lower wage!) by printing posters and gluing them, etc. I do not know, that is the point, to understand something and act.

I'm reading the book, Free time, by Hunnicutt. The book can be found on libgen. I've jumped to 8 section Less time -> full employment.

Did you know that up to 1956 the movement for shorter workday was wide? Some factories working 6 hours/day. Freedom was seen as less working hours, more free time.

After 1956, government begun pushing for more job, more work, high GDP growth. They used rhetoric such as high GDP growth mean less unemployment. Communists and cold war blah blah, work more. Some of the Union leaders who before that were for shorter workday, begun saying things like: you can work 6 hours/day, but less food.

Ok, I did not get a reply from r/communism mods, I've asked them what rule I broke. So I wrote this (at the bottom) in r/socialism (not the same moderators as in r/communism) and my thread was deleted.

Organizing for shorter workday, no wage cut, how can I help?

I'm not a worker, I would like to help the movement towards shorter workday (no wage cut). What can I do?

Since I'm not a worker, I decided to do agitation on the internet and may be print and glue posters at public transport, or where it is legal. Am I at the right direction?

For someone new, like myself:

How many hours required? From productivity growth, 4 hours/day, may be less.

I do not see this as a policy but as workers organizing at work place, demanding less hours without wage cut; how to do this depend on the country labor laws.

We should have a thread talking about the greatest soldiers, generals, and military leaders of the worker's cause. There are plenty to talk about Zhukov, Tukhachevsky, Che, but my personal contribution would be August Willich "The Reddest of the Red", a revolutionary leader from the 1848 revolutions, specifically the Baden-Palatinate uprising where Engels served as his aides-de-camp. He was also the leader of the "left faction" of the communist internationale, for many years he was a fierce enemy of Marx (dueling one of his disciples and nearly killing him) but his immigration to the US allowed their relationship to improve. During the Civil War he recruited many German radicals for the union army and became a colonel of the First German and later was made a Brigadier General. He was even wounded during the Atlanta Campaign at the battle of Resaca. To Willich, the civil war had become a revolutionary war and that defeated the CSA and ending slavery would create a massive social revolution in the US that could lead to socialism. IMO had the radical republicans capitalized on their victory and had Johnson not become president then Willich may very well had been correct in seeing the potential of Socialism in the USA. What revolutionary warrior do you most respect?

I was thinking about the power of kek, and the strength of the right within their peak of 2015-2016. 4chan was the nexus of sexual energy that awakened the libidinal energy of not only the young but also old conservatives. Trump was a magnet of sexual power, his swagger and sexuality the ultimate boner pill of the right. However it seems as if kek abandoned 4chan, not even /v/ memes seem to really hit the mainstream for more than a few minutes, the power of wojaks having left the hands of the site already and pepe is more of a twitch icon than a 4chan one now. I think that the reason why kek abandoned 4chan is that the god of chaos saught the general sameness of the two liberal positions, and fundamentally 4channers are liberals who merely don the masks of nazis in a sort of perverse exhibitionism of ideology. Conservatives and liberals are barely all that much different in the grand scheme of things, and kek saught the true third position in the west, which is communism or rather issues that sympathized with the left. The left's memes breathes and dies instead of festering like mindtraps of constant reinforcement such as the wojak and pepes that we see now, refinements of old concepts. Th left's memes always had the new car smell in the air, which is why even losers like Shoe was attracted to the left or at least sanderism. The left's memes are silent in the wind, but passes through the cracks a ghost that haunts the minds of the many while the right's memes are plentiful but shows cracks. The shroomjak I believe to be the last of the refinements, a being of nature in itself and thus it's conservative nature was subverted to the original power of the wojak as wojak is the purest expression of humanity and shroomjak is the purest expression of nature. The deriviatives of these mems are hollow and posses nothing more than the passing stigmata of discord memetics, a sort of come and go nature to it.

>Why do socialists get so excited over these lost cause nations like Somalia? Or Sudan. Or Ethiopia. Or Libya. I don't get it.
Really, socialism as a movement is not a movement for rich people. In a general sense. There can be individuals who become class traitors, just like white people who can become race traitors, but the communist base is in the ghetto more than gated suburbs like in America, and rich countries in the world are like the gated suburbs of the world, as most of the population of the world lives in the Global South which is full of massive slums.

Which is what Europe might've looked like if they didn't engage in colonization, especially in the Americas, which allowed to deport millions of immigrants just like your great grandparents or whatever if you're a white guy in the United States or Canada. But otherwise this is what Milan would've looked like today, or there would be serious problems with slums (more than there already are anyways). Once you industrialize, you have a surplus population, and in Europe's case, something like 17% of their population left mostly for the Americas between 1850-1920. If you look at it relative terms today, that would be like 800 million people leaving Africa and India and South America for the U.S. and Europe.

Europe's population would double immediately. Imagine 400 million Africans and Indians moving to Europe and helping them take off the population pressures. That would be a fair trade. But that's where the real movement in the world, that's where most of the proles are, and that's where revolutions are likely to occur (and have occurred). It's probably not in Europe. The Russian Revolution in 1917 had far more relevance out there than it did in the rich countries other than being perceived as a threat.

Sorry bud, by 1945 most identified socialists were of the Marxist or at least Marxian type. Hitler's socialism was always a rightoid psyop, they even admitted it when lots of NSDAP members would scold communists and socialists for keeping supposedly anachronistic ideas of class struggle.
