The very issue there is that you use the tendency for profit to fall as a doomsday clock. It's something inherent in capitalism itself yes but it's not the decisive character that kills it. The reality and the truth is, capitalism inherently forces itself to become socialistic, the class that's decisive on all this is the existence of a working class, a proletariat. The system rebels against itself. Socialism represents nothing but the inherent reality of the nature of capitalism, it cannot avoid it.. perhaps resist it but not stop it.

About the Soviet Union falling apart, what does that say about Socialism and Capitalism? What does that say about China compared to the Soviet Union? Talking about Socialism as something we can just establish or get out of is as nonsensical as the counter revolutions in the 19th century trying to maintain their despotic aristocracy. You also speak of the Soviet Union as a revolutionary state in the trotskyist sense which is nonsense. The Soviet Union was a workers state but not a Trotskyist state that was meant to protect the revolution and spread it out to other countries. We saw how unsuccessful that was historically.

No, capitalism could collapse or revolution occur before it even approaches zero. However, it is still something which is built into the system, and makes it entirely incapable of eternally perpetuating itself. It cannot exist forever, the question is what we get when it falls.

Capitalism certainly centralizes and concentrates production, and thus further socializes it, but this is not the same as capitalism obtaining some kind of socialist "character" which dominates it and makes it non-capitalist.
>About the Soviet Union falling apart, what does that say about Socialism and Capitalism? What does that say about China compared to the Soviet Union?
We were talking about the USSR, or more particularly Lenin, so what I stated was relavent to such. I would say it simply shows that the USSR was not aggressive or voracious as it should have been.

I'm not talking about the state in a Trotskyist sense at all, and the fact that you think this makes me think your understanding of Trotsky is primarily based on a shallow reading about Trotsky as opposed to any theoretical dispute with him. Both Lenin and Stalin were in support of the idea of the USSR functionary as a revolutionary core from which the revolutPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>When will capitalism collapse? Why didn’t it collapse in the 30s? Or in the past 100 years?
As I stated before, 100 years is pretty much a drop in the bucket for most systems, especially capitalism. I can't determine when things will exactly happen, just like you can't determine the exact date a mine will reach the point of producing a negative return. But you do know it eventually will, because the process is not a sustainable one and the rate of return decreases by the day.
>The 30s
The New Deal actually did a lot less to rectify the situation then what people think, and the economy was falling right back into a slump near the end of the 1930s. It was only after the destruction of old capital in Europe and the jolt to US based production to grow did the economy in the states begin to "recover".

Let us have a thread on the current hunger strike of Dimitris Koufodinas as it is clearly becoming a happening.

Today in athens was second day of protests, The Morning Star are reporting 10's of thousands.
>TENS of thousands took to the streets of the Greek capital Athens on Tuesday night in solidarity with hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas, who is believed to be close to death after 55 days without food.

>The prisoner from the revolutionary organisation 17 November, which was banned and disbanded in 2002 as a terrorist group by the Greek authorities, has also gone without water since February 22.

>He is now being treated in the intensive care unit at the Lamia General Hospital, where his condition is said to have deteriorated.
>Mr Koufontinas, who was given 11 life sentences plus 25 years in prison for his participation in a total of 11 murders, explosions and robberies, has been held at the Domokos agricultural prison near Lamia.

this is not a thread to tell us how terrible you think 17N were.

He is not just on hunger stroke but also water strike now, which is very dangerous, he is also old.
I think it was last year someone went on the same for I think access to educaiton (lot of greek radicals will just push at more freedom until they have the opportunity to escape.) Athens seemed to be on a knife-edge. I think the govt will fold eventually unless they are monumentally stupid but Dimitis is old and this can lead to health complications.

I'm a firm believer that in order to appeal to the people, you first need to prove that the thing you're trying to "sell" works. No, not as in a "economy simulation", we need a real test. People actually making a living in an economically planned society/commune.
I know this has been proposed several times before, but it's absolutely necessary. Any ideas?

Hi, Leftypol!

I'm the editor of New Multitude, an online magazine for left writers across the globe.

We are non sectarian and so you may not agree with everything we publish, but we are committed to bringing forward new voices. In the past year we have published articles from Uk, Hungary, Sudan, Myanmar, Brazil, Singapore and we are always looking for more! Either if it's a guide to a country's political scene/potential or on the ground reporting or an application of theory..we need you!

BRAND NEW ARTICLE on the Myanmar Coup. Please read and share if you want to understand the political economy of the coup. We have got some positive reviews of this so far and it even got referenced in a Chuancn.org article.

>Perhaps the idea of the ‘bloc’ was always flawed at one level, given that as long as the Tatmadaw remain an autonomous militia unaccountable to anyone but themselves, an elite partnership is an ontological impossibility. Nevertheless, the institutional oppositions of the power elite are conducted on a platform built on a broad consensus (or doxa) of a political economy based on extractive capitalism and a centralized Bamar-State.

So I'm a baby leftist, 19 years old. Living as NEET (unemployed, no experience/still green, haven't go to college but interested in computers & programming).

I don't have laptop nor computer, but I have a smartphone. Also I don't really have internet connection (wifi) since I'm a NEET (I using my sister/my mother internet connection via tethering).

My sister is a high school student (in public school) & my mother is a elementary school teacher (in private school). My father is a fisherman. And I tired hearing bullshit from my parent.

Ever heard about JFK saying, "don't ask your country contribution, but ask what's your contribution". It's like an excuse to hiding government's fault for preserving neolib system.

Why it's sound like we have to give our contributions to the country that ain't even give it's contribution to us?

The people have contributed so much for the state & corporate. I know there's something like internal factor & external factor that causing us unable to access normal life (if it's consider as normal). Even something like lifehacks still need necessary equipments & tools.

It's not always our fault if we've born poor. We're not so lucky like those rich kids & their families. So I asking your advices & suggestions. What must I do, comrades?
