70 years ago, on March 5, 1953, Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin died - a Bolshevik revolutionary, a student and ally of V.I. Lenin, the head of the world's first socialist state - the USSR, Generalissimo of Victory.

The bourgeoisie still tremble with fear and anger as they spit his name.

Some authors and some communists believe Stalin was poisoned or some shit.
Also in Molotov Remembers, it is claimed that Molotov said that Beria implied that he'd killed Stalin to "save themselves". I personally don't believe any of this. Stalin had a number of health problems, which WW2 aggravated and, on top of that, he was not allowed to retire at old age. So he kept working until he dropped dead one day.

Unions in six countries join forces to demand an end to wage theft by US-based fashion companies
UNIONS from six countries in south and south-east Asia have joined forces to demand an end to wage theft by United States-based big fashion companies. The unions and their global allies Asia Floor Wage Alliance (AFWA) and the Global Labour Justice – International Labour Rights Forum ( GLJ-ILRF) launched their campaign to “Fight the Heist” today. In a report titled Big Fashion investors cash in on wage theft published last week, the unions revealed how Nike, VF Corporation and Levi’s and their wealthiest investors are profiting through wage theft from workers in their Asian supply chains.

Pakistan bans media broadcasts of ex-PM Imran Khan speeches
The ban by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority was imposed on Sunday and went into effect on Monday. It covers airing of both recorded and live speeches by Khan, who was ousted in a no-confidence vote in Parliament last April. The ban followed a particularly fiery speech by Khan, who has a large grassroots following, lambasting Sharif’s government and the country’s all-powerful military.

CPI(M) Alleges Over 600 Incidents of Post-Poll Violence in Tripura by BJP-Backed 'Hooligans'
The Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M) on Monday alleged that soon after the declaration of election results on March 2, around 668 incidents of violence have taken place across the state where opposition political party workers came under attack, their houses, shops either ransacked or vandalised after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power for the second time.

>The US Can Stop Twitter From Releasing Details in Spy Report
Forget tiktok, twitter and every other PRISM company is 10X more dangerous. Not because tiktok isnt spying on us, it very well could be, but because china does not have legal jurisdiction over american citizens. Every time you use software from a PRISM company, such as twitter, meta, or google, you are waiving your fifth amendment rights. Westoid libs will say "i dont talk to cops" but immediately snitch on themselves the moment they turn on a digital device. Not even the sacred "private dinner table conversation" is private anymore, because amazon alexa exists, and siri, and that android bitch whose name i forgot. People think china is dangerous because "i dont agree with communism" but in fact, it is the US government that can throw you in prison, or george floyd your stupid dumb ass.

Educate me on the Sino-Soviet split.

what is the Chinese perspective on the Sino-Soviet split?

What is the Soviet perspective?

Were the Chinese simply angry that Khrushchev "tore up agreements" like Deng said in that one interview (picrel), or is there more to it?

What led to the Sino-Soviet split?

Were both the USSR and PRC at fault?

Who bears more responsibility for the Sino-Soviet split?

What good books would you recommend to learn about the Sino-Soviet split?

retaded and frankly undefensible position


Lmao you are shameless arent you


Again, Mao wanted to join USA since 1944, what nuke access you are talking about? You are inventing reason to justify chinese agression and they all look fucking petty. USSR saved China's ass from Japan and had zero gratitude for that. Of course tehy were reserved in sharing access to military secrets with someone who was looking to ally with imperialists all the time they were helping them.
Stop projecting, traitorous bitch.


Ok the sinophobic left calling China a capitalist country in 1950 is just too much.


Rightoids always try to play victim when they have no argument. Dengoids are literally no different from /pol/yps who screech about huwite genocide.

>…the story of capitalism is of a sclerotic system. As Robert Brenner has shown, since the 1970s falling rates of profitability have led to a decline in rates of economic growth. What happens when global economic growth slows, capitalists don’t invest, and the great worker-capitalist compromise collapses? What is to become of democracy once its material foundations die? “I think we’re living in a period where there is a hegemonic crisis of capitalism, but there’s no answer to it because the left is so weak,” Riley said. “Gramsci pointed to some aspects of this in his writings on Caesarism – there is a crisis of authority, and it’s not clear that either the right or left are proposing a way to break out of this, and so you get an extreme personalisation of politics and the emergence of the Caesaristic leaders like Trump or Meloni.”

<In the context of this degenerate hegemony, Riley thinks there is a transition underway to what he calls “political capitalism”, whereby capitalists move away from investing in production but use political means to generate and increase their profits, such as deploying police powers to evict tenants who fail to pay the rent, securing monopolies over intellectual property rights and using legislation to enforce the interests of capital. In many ways, this notion of politically enabled expropriation – what Marx called “extra-economic” exploitation – resembles recent definitions of neo-feudalism associated with economists such as Cédric Durand.

>How should the left respond? The issue for the left, as Riley sees it, is that it has become far too focused on redressing past wrongs at the expense of proposing solutions to the problems of humanity. “I don’t want to be dismissive of either Black Lives Matter or other mobilisations for redistribution, but there is no alternative for what a new kind of society as a whole would look like. What rushes into the vacuum is the concern over justice, and the problem is that justice is firmly backward-looking in its orientation. It’s not that justice is unimportant but it cannot be the lodestar of a project of a new society. As a strategy, it makes the left seem like a group of moralisers, which is not a political winner. Leftists would do well to remember that point, and more genera

I was paraphrasing, but it's from the preface of "A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy.
>No social order is ever destroyed before all the productive forces for which it is sufficient have been developed, and new superior relations of production never replace older ones before the material conditions for their existence have matured within the framework of the old society.


isn't this a case for acceleration?


Not exactly, recall:
>[…]a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

Without building working class power, we will face common ruin.


Not really. It's just a statement that you can't build a new society until the old society has created the proper conditions for its own destruction. Whether or not it has done so is very often outside of anybody's control.


All I can do is get the best deal for my client or say fuck this we’re going to trial. I can’t just make up the law. I can’t pavlov the ADAs unless it goes on appeal and I win. ‘Justice’ is inherently reactionary to the laws promulgated by those in power who create the law. I sure as shit am not one of them and it’s not like we are going to ‘just vote!1!!!’ our way into the current political structure. To have this discussion at the higher conceptual level is to have the ‘revolution when?’ discussion all over again. To think electoralism will fix it is a farce. To think those prosecuting or writing the law will fix it is to be Charlie Brown with the football. To think i could fix anything on my own is a farce. I can’t even pay my bills on appointed cases. The avenues for appeal are minimal. The dockets are overloaded. Everyone is out for a buck, you can’t unionize any of them here. It’s all pointless except for the struggle and when I know I actually helped someone. I don’t really know what else to say.

apparently there's a golden ratio discovered by corporate food scientists. If you can achieve a certain ratio of sugar to hydrogenated vegetable oil, with the complimentary flavor and texture, the subject will eat far beyond satiation compared to a subject eating unprocessed food. Decades of research went into making the population obese.


Mixing sugar, salt and fat all three together has been a disaster for the population.

What's the deal with minorities siding with reactionaries? It seems to be getting much more common, is this just another example of based-cringe dialectics? With black people not wanting to be the cringy, leftoid bluepilled BLM supporter so they turn to reaction to be the based black man and one of the good ones? I mean look at these comments.

economic factors are the main driving point but it's also fallacious to reduce everything to it. People can have a right to do something like have an abortion but due to cultural reasons not have one which is an aberration of ML 'worldview' Marxism which reduces everything to matter, biology and economics which considers culture as a spook instead of something to democratise, which is a incentive for people to inclined to socialism to be free from wage slavery, so they can pursue their cultural values such as art and spirituality not force everyone to be a atheist philistine fedora tipper and eradicate all personality.

Conservative minorities are over-represented online VS real life, just like white /pol/tards. The reason is white boomers love black people to say conservative anti black shit so they subscribe and pump up black conservative channels.

Black republicans are <10% of all black people in America but they've gotten good at gaming the YT algorithms. They're basically just doing the social media version of Candace Owens


best reply in the thread

It all goes back to class. Those black reactionaries are all petite bourgeoisie or bourgeoisie or hope to use their youtube channel to become petite bourgeoisie. Most black people who have to actually experience the black lived experience know better than to trust republicans even if many hold conservative beliefs

They were conditioned to have an inferiority complex from a young age about not being "white". Instead of rejecting the whiteness like anyone else that's experienced racism, they've accepted it as something to strive for as a coping mechanism

Multipolarist imperialism is better for the communist movement (not the proletariat in of itself, they're gonna be even more wrecked by civil wars and shit) than unipolar imperialism, but both are imperialism.
Sabocat said something along the lines of that, Russia nowadays is like Japan in the 1900's, trying to face western imperialism for it's own benefit, but we all know how that ended up, in Japan allying with the axis.
Western communists are so weak and so full of despair that their best hope is waiting for Russia to become imperialist. Because if Russia (and China) become imperialist, it will be on direct conflict with the west even harder than before and will have the political will to actively oppose it, like Germany did during WW1 giving rise to the first communist country in the world.
That's the hope that multipolaristas have.

>The third camp, also known as third camp socialism or third camp Trotskyism, is a branch of socialism that aims to oppose both capitalism and Stalinism by supporting the organised working class as a "third camp".

>The term arose early during World War II and refers to the idea of two "imperialist camps" competing to dominate the world: one led by the United Kingdom and France and supported by the United States, and the other led by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union and supported by Fascist Italy.

>Dissidents in the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party, witnessing the collaboration of Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler in the invasion and the partition of Poland and the Soviet invasion of the Baltic states, argued that the Soviet Union had actually emerged as a new social formation, which was neither capitalist nor socialist. Adherents of that view, espoused most explicitly by Max Shachtman and closely following the writings of James Burnham and Bruno Rizzi, argued that the Soviet bureaucratic collectivist regime had in fact entered one of two great imperialist "camps" aiming to wage war to divide the world. The first of the imperialist camps, which Stalin and the Soviet Union were said to have joined as a directly participating ally, was headed by Nazi Germany and included most notably Fascist Italy. In that original analysis, the "second imperialist camp" was headed by England and France, actively supported by the United States.

Could someone please explain why American socialists still insist on invoking Christianity (Protestant theology in particular) when America is the LEAST Christian it’s ever been?

Church attendance for all denominations is dropping steadily while the number of Americans identifying as “no religion” has gone way up in the past decade or two. It’s gotten to the point where the GOP doesn’t even appeal to fundamentalist Protestantism anymore; now they overwhelmingly appeal to conspiracy theories and short-term outrage. The last midterm elections proved abortion and other “Christian values” issues are a losing bet since the younger generations are far more socially progressive all while the older, more conservative generations are dying off with no one to replace their votes.

With that said, what’s even the point of this “Jesus was a socialist” crap? It seems like Muppet and his followers ultimately want to create some kind of cultural nationalism, like American Protestantism is the American equivalent of the ROC for Russians or Shia Islam for Iranians. But how pragmatic (or true) is that really, when less and less Americans are adhering to Christianity? It makes no fucking sense and comes off as a losing position.

Christianity is already past its prime, except probably in Latin America, and even there, it will have have the same destiny.



I think I saw that some Christian conspiracy theorists believed that somebody called Sorath caused the Russian Revolution and 'led the Bolsheviks to drive religion out of public life'.

They claim "Sorath will foment opposition through men who are possessed by him, who have strong natures, raving tongues, destructive fury in their emotions, and faces, which outwardly appear like those of animals. They will mock that which is of a spiritual nature" and "Create a new world order without religion in public life, destroying all tradition".

They even claimed that 'Sorath possessed Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler, possibly leading Hitler to his defeat at Stalin's hands'.


-I'm also assuming because of "The Red Sun in the Sky" stuff that drove them to claim that or because of the aesthetics Trotsky made for the Bolsheviks that got ripped off by the fascists? Its honestly hilarious.
