This declared war has greater dimensions than Ukraine, and its goal is to qualify Russia to lead the world and to lead the axis of resistance and to rehabilitate Putin, who has a black history of seizing power, liquidating his opponents, violating the rights of the Russians, and trading power with Medvedev for decades, qualifying him to lead the axis of resistance. Which includes Iran, the Islamic resistance, the Palestinian and the Yemeni as well.. This is how the West hopes that Putin will become qualified to lead the peoples with the right judges. And to reproduce the old polarization with the Soviet Union, which was somewhat comfortable and did not threaten Israel in terms of existence as the resistance threatens Israel. If this situation indicates anything, it indicates that the real conflict exists, even if it is not visible, between Russia and the axis of resistance over the leadership of the peoples, and not between the United States and Russia. Putin is a creation of the West, not a representative of the Russian people. And now his view of Dugin has entered the line, and the goal of assassinating his daughter may be to float his Eurasian project, which is the new incubator of Israel.

this is not new, this coordination between the two but has been going on for years . These 2 countries along with the US are made of the same fabric and they prey on other countries and now they are preying on Ukraine after preying on Syria . The 2 countries are together and act together and coordinate together. What ever differences they had are irrelevant . They form one block . If israel coordinated the transfer of Russian forces and equipment from Syria to Ukraine this means that they got the US approval for doing so and this means that Russia , US and israel are partners in this war in Ukraine against the Ukrainian people and that the same coordination happening in Syria might very well be happening in Ukraine

Russia is being hit in depth in 2 military spots by drones coming from Ukraine but that were not claimed . The red line has been transgressed again by NATO backed forces, and Russia came under attack which does not tell anything good . The goal certainly is multiple, and one of the goals is to escalate the war and to push Russia to more retaliation that will target civilians and the infrastructure and cause more destruction to Ukraine . The second goal is to put Putin to test and see how long can Russia resist and how will it behave and retaliate and deal with the mild sanctions that will allow it to continue to feed its military power and produce the necessary weapons to keep the war going . Russia is not at its advantage in this war to which it has been drawn and pushed by the USA, and this because it is totally exposed to its NATO enemies with which it coexisted and coordinated in Syria for almost a decade now, coordination that is still continuing up to this minute while it is the Syrian army and the Syrian tribes that have been assigned the task of targeting the US military base in al Tanf at the Jordanian-Iraqi-Syrian borders . Not to forget the fact that it is upon US request that Russia left Ukraine in the middle of its crisis in 2015 to the surprise of all to head towards Syria and carry on the world powers’ agenda over there that consists in protecting israel from the growing Axis of the Resistance. Russia left Ukraine in order to return in due time summoned by US so as to start the US/Russian polarity that will create a new world alignment at the detriment of the regional front called the Axis of the Resistance . This alignment that Syria is already joining and Iran invited to join will obliterate the struggle of the people against world powers in favor of the conflict between the world powers themselves that will assure the perennity and continuity of these world powers and the marginalization of the people and their struggle.

The conquest of the new world in the 15th century was not a singular endeavor it was a global endeavor in which many countries shared and the church also . the European invasion to what was thought to be India came as a surprise to the Natives of that area who were not prepared to such intrusion and who never thought that there lived on earth hordes of barbaric people for whom nothing existed but material greed. They never thought that such blood thirsty vultures existed on earth and they were overwhelmed by such discovery and could not get their act together to face the challenge . The vicious endeavor was a real success in the southern and the northern continent and more so in the northern continent where the genocide of the Natives was also a cultural genocide and worked on uprooting the very existence of the Natives cultural wise. The native languages were erased and so were their religious practices . This successful bloody attempt was certainly very inspiring, and the European predators sought to spread it all over the world and that is why they repeated it in Palestine; and this time instead of sending the outlaws of Columbus or the Puritans of the English kingdom they sent the Zionist Jews to colonize Palestine and massacre the original population like they massacred the Native indigenous in the Americas .
The narrative that accompanied this invasion was also a religious narrative like the Puritan narrative for they had a different notion of good and evil and took their greed for deservation of what wrongly belonged to others . But this endeavor in Palestine was not a success like the one that happened in the new continent and in Australia for the Natives had learned a lesson and the colonialists were received differently by the Red Indians of Yemen and Lebanon and Palestine . The Resistance of the people is what the European blood thirsty predators are facing In Palestine , in Lebanon , in Yemen and in Iran, and everything we are witnessing right now in terms of colored Revolutions and Arab springs and terrorism and war in Ukraine is because of the Resistance of the people . The world powers cannot overcome such Resistances that are sometimes highly inspired and motivated and receptors of the heritage of a long struggle .
What the colonialists are trying to do is go around this challenge by creating fake Revolutions and soft wars and promoting terrorism and spreading diseases and reproducing the polarity pattern that put states in confrontPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

In order to promote the world escalating polarity between US and Russia that is triggered and has no foundation , Putin inaugurates in Moscow with the presence of the Cuban president a big statue that represents leader Castro . This happens as a commemoration of 60 years on the missiles crisis that happened between the USA and the USSR in the sixties . Thus Putin is bringing up again the USSR history of Russia . This is to say that nothing can be further from Castro than Putin himself ; Castro, who during his life never permitted that a statue of him be raised or allowed that a street be named after him, has nothing to do with Putin whose self promotion campaigns had conquered the social media picturing him sometimes as riding the Grizzly bear or taming the tiger or riding proudly the horse like an American cow boy or scoring in Judo . Castro had banned all sorts of cults of personality that he described as anti revolutionary while Putin does not miss one opportunity to promote his image .

- Khrushchev ordered to built the damn wall just one week after Walter Ulbricht had publicly promised that building a wall is out of question. Big win for west-german propaganda who made Ulbricht look like a divider and liar, when the real divider was actually Adenauer. Now Ulbricht's name is associated with the wall when building a wall was probably the last thing he wanted to do.
- Khrushchev suffered of severe sinophobia, which lead to the soviet-chinese split and extremely weakened the communist bloc as a whole during cold war. The sinophobia thing applies to all USSR chairmen after him as well, they all tried to hamper improving relations between the DDR and PRC.

I've read some Hoppe recently on his views about how racial discrimination on the level of individual or associational basis is consistent with libertarian principles (i.e the right to not associate) but then he went on this bizzare tangent about how discrimination is not only allowed, but necessary to prevent "uyghurs from destroying civilization like in Rome or Greece"
I find this extremely absurd and authoritarian. For starters, why should an ancap cares about civilization (which is basically a statist construction created to harmonize the different interest and ethnic groups within the country by inventing a new cosmopolitan identity) but also he tried to infuse his personal biases and ideas into the conversation(third world immigration bad)and equate it with freedom and anyone who disagrees on him with this are communists/homosexuals/ bums and inferiors.

This is what i notice with right libertarians in general. They very frequently go from 'freedom is the right to own property' into 'freedom is doing whatever i wanted'. Freedom ceased to be the ability of man to express his inner contradictions unbound by intrapersonal forces and instead a retvrn (or, if you're an NRX an acceleration) into a set of static norms that the speaker parades as the "correct" way to live, be it homogenous traditionalism under Hoppe or liquid high autism score urbanism under Land. It becomes something very Hegelian and authoritarian rather than actually libertarian

The consequences of being materialist enough to realise that 'inalienable god given rights' are a meme, but either not being materialist enough or being knowlingly hypocritical to not recognise 'property rights' as just as equal a meme.

I don't even think NRxfags like Land and Moldbug believe in using state-discrimination against muh blacks and muh jews and muh browns to 'save the west' or something, I think one of the whole points of the NeoCam shit is that society is just so liberalised economically, without even the basics of a bismarkian welfare state, That people who can't swim just 'sink' immediately [i.e move or die.] regardless of race.

It's just the natural consequence of not believing in the generally [modern] liberal concept of 'inalienable/god-given rights' in relations to people, but having a personal interest in maintain the idea of a intrinsic 'right' to property [the most common ones i hear are usually under something like the 'improvement' idea, i.e anyone who took land and 'improved' upon it via some metric now has metaphysical ownership over-it - nonsense essentially]

What are your opinions on the idea of decolonization? I've been digging into this a little bit as it regards Native American tribes and it looks like there is no consensus among proponents of this stuff. A lot of academics talk about "decolonizing spaces" or "decolonizing the canon," which is mostly just fuzzy liberal shit with little practical effect, but there is also the "decolonization is not a metaphor" crowd, which gets into land back territory.

Now the land back stuff is interesting. I don’t know about the history of this but the recent history is pretty interesting. It looks like the phrase "Land Back" started as a hashtag which gained some traction before being sort of coopted by an org called the NDN Collective. This NDN Collective has received $50 million in grants from the Bush Foundation, along with another $12 million from the Jeff Bezos Earth Fund and a (from what I could find) undisclosed amount from Bezos’ ex-wife Mackenzie Scott.

The NDN Collective advocates for the return of Native territory obtained through broken treaties, focusing particular attention on the Black Hills in South Dakota, where Mt. Rushmore is located. Multiple members, including their president, have been arrested for protest stunts. They also plan to open an independent school for Native students.

But Land Back, followed to its logical conclusions, would seem to call for the displacement of all non-native occupants of North America, or at least a race-based supremacy of Native peoples. And Porky seems very interested in using this to muddy the waters in some way.

However, as I said, there seems to be no real consensus on this stuff, and I don’t doubt that many who support decolonization efforts of some kind or another have correctly intuited that decolonization would actually involve the overthrow of capitalism, not just the yeeting of white people. But it seems like there is a concerted effort to keep this stuff in the realm of either the patently ridiculous or purely abstracted.

What does decolonization actually mean in practical terms? They weren't just colonized but genocided or forcefully assimilated. Their tribes have been devastated and broken. They simply don't have the populations for them to restore their civilizations and too much has been destroyed by anglo-capitalist domination.

A kind of mental self-liberation would be the only realistic possibility. Even then eschewing the current way of life of alcohol, corn syrup, internet and pornography is no easy task
NA communities are among the most dysfunctional in the country and reservations often have considerable drug, alcohol and poverty problems.

Simple, Balkanization to try to keep other ethnic groups fighting amongst each other instead of fighting against the bourgeoisie. And to make it easier for the capitalists to plunder the wealth and minerals of the land.

"Land Back" and "Decolonization" has already become co-opted by capitalists. Making these decisions based on spooks like race, gender or sexuality always plays into the bourgeoisie's hands.

I know I'll get inevitable get flamed for this, but I'm not saying that Russia bad or that we should ever side with NATO or any social chauvinist radlib shit like that. However, the ideology of "multipolarism" seems to be in contradiction to what's actually happening and is largely in the service of the geopolitical interests of one country in particular. What actually seems to be happening is not that there are multiple "poles" forming; regional powers directly competing with the global hegemonic power of the United States, but more an anti-hegemonic league of nations loosely aligned around the desire to resist American influence. What nations are actively trying to be "poles"? China? India? Brazil? South Africa? Iran? I guess you could argue that they all exhibit their own sort of international influence, but none of them are really presenting themselves as new "poles" of global power that stand in singular opposition to American global power or each other. It's really only Russia trying to position itself this way. At times, it comes across as a ham-fisted attempt at reviving Soviet internationalism without embracing communism again, replacing socialist internationalism with Duginoid schizoposting about Eurasianism and Atlanticism or whatever.

Every socialist should be opposed to the United States and NATO, and to that extent, those nations that are opposed to the United States and NATO could be viewed as the "good guys" to some extent, and we should all be exited for a "post-American" world order, but I don't know why you'd cheerlead any particular world order other than, obviously, global communism. Especially if that world order is essentially a return to pre-WWII great power competition. I could think of a few outcomes that are preferable to that even without a global socialist revolution, such as the counter-hegemonic countries remaining largely autonomous equals operating as a single political bloc against NATO, rather than forming around "pole" countries.

The whole thing comes across as trying to convince people that global liberation from imperialism isn't just in the destruction of US-NATO hegemony, but somehow requires the re-formation of the Russian Empire.

Can we discuss these damn things? They are the fundamental, basic units of advanced capitalism.

Any person with a fraction of sentience has reacted with unease at least once in life at the near ubiquitous sight of streams of people staring blankly at their phones, utterly oblivious and disconnected to the world around them and enthralled by mechanisms of conditioning built into the apps that draw their attention.

It is evident how total and comprehensive the techno-capitalist’s commodification of the entire “enphoned” human life is, how utterly billions of people have been chained to a single object controlled by the capitalist overlord.

I am particularly interested in the analysis of smartphones with respect to theorist Byung-Chul Han’s thesis of burnout society particularly his observations about excess positivity/hyperstimulation and “auto-exploitation.” I will now summarize these two theses.

Han proposes that contemporary first-world software-centric capitalism has evolved how it exploits labor and disenfranchises the proletariat using the new advanced tools at its disposal . Particularly, although certainly not exclusively, how it exploits certain white collar workers, “temporarily embarrassed millionaires” with aspirations of social mobility and entrepreneurial success. This class segment tends to be the low ranking foot soldiers of the tech industry.

In an effort to appeal to these aspirations, the capitalist system pushes a culture of excess positivity that results in self-exploitation. Rather than cracking the whip and threatening doom if productivity is not kept up, the capitalist system now attempts to make people believe overwork is in their own benefit. (Elon Musk being a particularly blaring example of this treachery.) Excess positivity means constant production, stimulation, energy, enhancement, activity, optimism; and it necessitates the elimination of negative spaces of repose, relaxation, contemplation, regeneration. The resulting culture of hyperactivity invariably leads to crashes and burnout.

Smartphones are a component in this design. People are anxious not to check their phones almost constantly, because they fear that if they are away from it, their entire world will collapse. They are roped into captological entrapments, and force-fed an endless stream of consumptive simulations like ducks being prepared for foie gras .

WEW how wrong. "Just" a communication tool is a radical understatement.

Phone bad

 No.1297453

At some point I decided to start turning phone off or never calling anyone, turning notifications off etc. Moreover, I tend to never press any suggestions and try to just watch or search what I want with good but not perfect success. It is a topic I find overall interesting but I don't have anything to contribute. Besides, when I talk I am always doomerish so I never succumb to the optimistic bullshit. That being said, when I work I work pretty good because I enjoy it and because I am more into academic stuff.
