In the last few weeks:

>Food prices skyrocketing

>Political standstill impedes any single party from gaining the upper hand against the others
>Gas prices keep growing, to the point that the army itself has little to no gas left
<Now power stations are starting to shut down

It seems clear as of now that the country has already collapsed economically and its headed for a political reckoning of some kind (and a violent one grows likely), so I'm making this thread for anons to follow what will happen in the coming days/weeks.

Feel free to post anything you can find on Lebanese situation here.
Also post some sources if you can.

I have for a while known that it was only a matter of time before this happens.

About 5 days ago, protests broke out in the Iranian Arab province of khuzestan. Itan has been hit by an extreme drought that has hit Khuzestan rspecially hard and combined with constant power outages, poor water rationing and a covid situation that is not improving, people have been pushed to the breaking point.

While the Protests were localized to Khuzestan and initially only demanding basic necessities, only 3 days later they have spread into numerous Iranian cities including Tehran and demands have quickly turned into anti government slogans. People are now no longer demanding water but calling for the abolition of the Islamic republic and resignation of the supreme leader. The current president is a hardliner who won the vote amids the lowest turnout in the country's history due to the fact that most of the population boycotted the elections in protest.

Today the slogans have become outright blasphemous and militant. All over Tehran you could hear "Death to Khamenei" and "ditch the Quran,long live Iran"

Police opened fire yesterday, and in retaliation citizens shot dead two police officers. 5 protesters have been killed so far and a tank that had been brought to block the road has been set on fire. Fires and skirmishes with police rage across numerous cities. People in Khuzestan have hoisted the arab separatist flag of Ahvaz. Some protesters can be seen carrying Iranian flags with the islamic emblem cut out. The government has shut down internet in the country.

It's important to remember that /leftypol/ and leftistsbin general have no horses in this race. This is a conflict between liberals and religious fundamentalists. Unlike Cuba these appear to be organic grassroots protests. There is very little evidence that these are US orchestrated even though they likely have their blessing. There are no US flags or pro US slogans, and western media is completely silent on the protests as of now. Most people are unaware of them. This is an infight between reactionaries, so please refeain from shitting up the thread with side taking.

This might or might not be a happening, but this thread is for following the situation and posting updates as well as discussion.

How are they vague? They are demanding the resignation of the supreme leader and the dissolution of the Islamic republic. How is living under a brutal theocracy not a materialist demand? They only differ on whether to execute them afterwards or not.

two things can be true at once, porky fucked up the lockdown because they wanted to profit from it. really, the entire debate ITT relies on Westerners blinding themselves to the rest of the world. everyone else is dealing with COVID in a much different way, either through actually experiencing catastrophe like India, or ensuring that the state has enough capability to deal with the issue like China or Vietnam.

the West, on the other hand, has done this hybrid approach where most people will never experience the negative effects of the virus but the pain falls disproportionately on invisible demographics who don't go online to say how it's all a fuckin hoax or something. it leads to people like Greaves-san to saying it's all fake and Porky made it all up because they themselves cannot see it. i don't blame Phil here for being such a covidiot, Porky fucked it all up in the first place.

the primary issue is the dominance of financial capital seeking to use any crisis to plunder the working class, but covidiots and anti-vaxxers can't admit it because it would prove that the issue is capitalism rather than government. seriously, every time i watch a Jimmy Dore video, there are tons of rightoids in the comments who think the government is the sole cause of their country's problems, the business leaders are somehow the ones being held back by Demonrat communists. these are the deluded fools you've thrown your lot in with, Phil. i sincerely wish you the best of luck and that they never find out you're a communist.

There is currently a massive strain on global logistical supply lines, threatening to fuck up global trade.

All conspiracy to the effect that "elites are planning this!" ignores the fact that it would be a suicide play, and a single most based thing to ever happen in history.

Just read the first volume of his most well known work (The Accursed Share) and honestly i can sorta see why people view him as similar to land in some of his [Economic] views.

The way he describes the functioning of capitalism both in an esoteric way but also in a systemic way. His descriptions of capital expansion as extension being caused by pressure within the capitalist system like a machine filling up with steam, Capitalist opulence and excess and failed capitalist enterprise / the wealth and resources squandered arbitrarily as a release valve for the system (Capital descruction), Wars in the imperialist, inter-power and civil sense as a result of capitalisms tendency to expand butting up against unconquerable GeoPolitical, Geographic and ecological limits. With the solution being the taming of this wasted surplus and with it the closing of the release valve rapid, prolonged and Accelerating expansion of capital towards final ecological and geographic barriers.

The only real systems that could possibly do this would be Socialism or Lands Corporate city state bullshit.

Either way i think he's definitely a foreunner to land and the entire /acc trend.

Well both Land and Fisher's ideologies (even though i dont recall if fisher really ever quotes or mentions bataille) even before Land took his right-wing turn do resemble the idea of a death-cult to begin with anyway.

On account that their basically arguing to let capitalism grind collective humanity through the gears until we either exist the worlds resources and collapse into post-capitalism or hit some hard technological ceiling meaning that LINE WONT GO BACK UP! And we have global commie revolution. The silent downside to this being that your basically conceding that generations if not dozens more generations of humanity will have to live absolutely abysmal lives before capital is overcome.

One of the symptoms of schizophrenia is cognitive problems including memory. Not that someone with schizophrenia can't be an intellectual but it would seem very unlikely. They may pose better chance for genius since genius doesn't exclude people who aren't deep in books and education but have a different kind of thought process.

When will they realize being lead by petty bourgeois academes is a bad idea?
When will they realize changing culture is a poor idea?
When will they stop screaming revisionism at others and realize how revisionist they are with their dogmatism?
When will they stop splintering?
When will they focus on long-term goals instead of petty acts of violence and shock-value?
When will they stop making excuses because "What do you not get about muh PROTRACTED people's war?"
When will they win a revolution?

Never

So join in on the hate. Fuck this petty-bourgeois ideology, along with other failed movements that belong in the dustbin of history (like Trotskyism). Post your copypastas, videos, memes, articles, everything.
