We are running out of time to not end with barbarism (followed by extinction) for this world. Yet, communists are still too irrellevant to do anything against capital. I'm not even a third worldist, since also there communist movements are too weak. Why is there nothing in Africa, the most exploited continent on Earth? India also doesn't look like a coming revolution.31 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Even looking at history, where communist movements have been much bigger and stronger in the west, they weren't successfull. Now, the ruling bourgeoisie has more means to suppress it with propaganda, historical revisionism, subversion, infiltration, sabotage and direct state violence, while we are smaller and weaker than in the past.
I'm still relatively new to this by just being a zoomer activist for about two years, but I already feel burned out from utter frustration. There was some potential with the climate movement for further radicalisation, but this has also been too small since the beginning and had no significant growth since it started. Corona just basically pushed it into irrelevance, made liberals become full on impossible to radicalise, which proceeded to continue bootlicking the government again and "democracy" to voot problems away. The complete failure of western governments to handle the Corona crisis, has not made socialist radicalisation possible either, since people tend to just become reactionary Covid deniers instead, where law enforcement doesn't prosecute them for breaking the law either, but outright walk with them in support instead (which the latter was to be expected but still).
Maybe, I'm just doomin' like Lenin used to at the beginning of WW1, but I don't see how any coming worsening material conditions for proles could possibly break the majority of them out of their capitalist realism, be it in the imperialist core or in the hyper-exploited world.
This is truly the worst timeline. Are we really doomed?

America has only waged war with substantially weaker countries in far-off lands since the end of WWII, so it doesn't seem likely that this would happen anytime soon. Also, even if it did, there's no guarantee that people would turn to socialism in response.>>151442>Building section tensions in the US<America won't survive the 19th century!>Civil War takes off<America won't survive the 19th century!>Long Depression starts<America won't survive the 19th century!>Great Depression starts<America won't survive the 20th century!>Cold War startsPost too long.

>>151083>The soviets conquered russia with only around 8% of the population's support.
According to voting into the Constituent Assembly, bolsheviks had around 25% support, coming second behind SRs with around 40% support. While slightly less than 50% of eligible voters casted their votes it still shows that ideas of socialism in Russia was quite the popular one.
