This means discussion of kurdish culture, regional news, activism, respects to our dead comrades, propaganda.

The more I read about crypto the more I realize that it still operates under the LTV. You have people working on developing a shit ton of apps, writting blogs and shilling their own coins, and while a crypto coin has no use value, it is a valuable commodity among these people who are just engaging in a very degenerate form of betting.

Why do people believe cryptocurrencies proves the LTV wrong?

I did in another thread - As trust in government wanes crypto will go up. Being at least on an ideal level a non-state backed non-commodity form of money is useful. Furthermore you can actually buy things with the major cryptos, so again use-value. Whether that use value disappears in a decade from now for various reasons is irrelevant.

Also it's weird you green text > Marx when writing confusing sentences like
> it is a valuable commodity among these people
After saying it has no use-value, and the idea that any labor = value is factually wrong. And if we really want to get into it the actual ledger (what hashers need to show proof of work for) isn't really tied up with its production perse (and therefore its value under the LTV) especially in the case of coin where the total supply is already fixed.

If helping people in more exploited areas of the globe is good… then why shame someone for not being able to steal enough? One person being saved from poverty or labor is a miracle and a blessing. Communism in one would-be-prole at a time. As we help each other out more, we will be able to steal more and then the moralists who want handouts will be happy, as the people who are too legalist and righteous to involve themselves in the dirty acts get the trickle-downs into the economy

because if you get caught you will go to prison where you will have no freedom at all and possibly be physically or sexually assaulted, or abused by the guards, and eat terrible food, and be very very bored.

If you wageslave it you can at least have some free time outside that with freedom

Reminder that you can (and should) buy your books from a second hand library instead of from Amazon. It's ridiculously cheap and at least you're not giving your euros to Amazon and shit.
Just got this, "the fear of freedom" by Erich Fromm for 2€, and these libraries are everywhere. If you find one, use it to your hearts content.
A friend of mine has built his marxist library with only these second hand books (not joking btw)

In the past few days I've seen more people posting with this flag. You better justify your little meme ideology right now, because it doesn't look like it has much meaning. How do Anarcho-Transhumanists wish to organize society? How does the state look like and function? How does the economy work? What's the underpinning philosophy? Or is it just a wishful "le I never asked for this Adam Jensen" Deus Ex larp?

I don't know if I'm fully aligned with this meme ideology, but I do believe that there are fundamental limitations to what the human genome can do, and we've seen basically the best humanity is capable of at this point. I am, in general, very disappointed with humans, and this absurd planet as a whole; and ambivalent at best about being born stuck here, in this shape.
Civilization collapses by the end of this century. No baseline humans left on the planet by the end of the next. The real question is whether we will go without leaving more than a couple of fossils, or be able to seed something greater. (Overwhelmingly likely: we go extinct in the most pathetic manner)

the constant gaslighting about how there's a "worker shortage" and "companies have job vacancies they can't fill" is starting to absolutely infuriate me. Even fucking entry level factory jobs are competitive and employers everywhere sit on stacks of resumes they don't even read.
And them claiming 5-6% unemployment rate is fucking laughable, especially when it just measures the people who managed to jump all the fences and actually get the bennies. If you add up the people permanently taken out of the workforce, laughably underemployed people, and people only working part-time with no benefits, it has to be over a third of the workforce

I know there are other cop related threads up but this one has a more targeted question. Why are American cops among the most brutal? Every day you see a new video of them pile driving an elderly woman into the ground or unloading clips into a black man or snapping a mentally disabled person’s arm. In almost no other part of the world, and certainly not in rich countries, are the police this violent or imperious.

I’m American and nearly everyone I know has been harassed or hounded by the police at one point or another. They typically do not view citizens as a group to protect but as an alien, otherized population to be monitored and intimidated. Even myself, a white male who is mild-mannered and rarely a troublemaker, have faced such treatment by police.

Now I will attempt to answer my own question.

My personal pet theory is that it is no coincidence that America is the epicenter of both world capitalism and police brutality. As Adam Smith of all people pointed out police exist to defend property, particularly private property, and the propertied class. There is a lot of that to protect and serve in America, and America has a large, mostly black and brown though not exclusively, marginalized and disenfranchised underclass that must be disciplined and regulated. America's large and unpropertied underclass must be kept off the lawn of capital.

Racism in one form of another is a contributing factor, and the idea that police function in part to enforce “internal colonies” of black and brown “reserved unemployed” who shut off from participating in the larger society is an appealing theory. But this cannot be the whole explanation because the brutality extends all but the wealthy.

America also uses its prison system as a form of modern slavery, extracting dirt cheap labor from inmates or legalizing for profit prisons that by their very design must seek to keep growing the prisoner population.

Another possibility is that American cops must deal with a distinctly difficult citizenry, because something in the American mental constitution is adamantly resistant to authority. Yet in a manner of speaking this is just a way to blame the victim.

Those who are attracted to unjustified power and authority tend to have sociopathic tendencies, but this should apply to all cops across the world. Only in America is regular brutalization acceptable and thus it attracts the type of psycho who enjoys that line of wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
