How would 2030s-2040s (or even 2050s) politics look like, knowing that most of today's zoomers have become adults by then.
How would bizarre triangle politics look like? How would Anglo foreign policy look like? And knowing the exceptionally great American influence on most of today's zoomers, is America going to fare better?

They also have to deal with the mess their ancestors left them due to boomer and Gen X capitalists having a "After me comes the flood" attitude. For example Exxon knew back in the 1980s what they were doing would kill capitalism in the long run as it would kill human civilization as a whole but they decided that is a problem for the sucker capitalists that takes the reigns after their dead and buried with all their money.

i think zoomers and enough leftist millennials are enough politically aligned so there's not a huge generation gap on political opinion like there is between people above or below 45.

However zoomers are still more leftist overall

 No.539421

Zoomers are just boys and girls. Give them time to come on their own rather than repeat the same mistakes of other generations and weigh prejudgement on them callously.

I say this as a millennial who sympathizes with zoomers despite teasing them all the time. I've also probably fucked more zoomers than I have millennials, so I feel somewhat qualified to comment on their psychology. (I'm a young millennial but am not into older partners, so I tend to date zoomers, if you are pedantic about it. The oldest zoomer is like two years younger than me.)

It's a symptom of the sickness of this culture that nobody bothers to help zoomers to understand their situation but instead mocks them for being incompetent, too dependent on tech, sheltered etc. Younger generations are discarded as worthless trash. This is a boomer disease and we should not recreate it.

Generational thinking, in short, is stupid and laden mostly with preconceptions and biases rather than actual truths. Instead analyze the material conditions and technological realities. Strip that away and every generation regardless of sequence is just a farmer in the mud trying to wrest a few pathetic stunted stubs of vegetables from the indifferent cruel earth.

The leader of CPUSA is now confirmed to be a "ex" Fed.

Nothing suspicious about a DHS officer chairing a "communist party". I can see CPUSA takes their members' security about as seriously as a club penguin account.


They have done some dodgy things but others here might agree with those things.
One thing which is dodgy and all would agree is fucked is the CPUSA worked with Connor Gillis and Blevel to hack all of Jason Unruhe's accounts such as Youtube, Twitter Paypal etc.

Ok so apparently in the US Columbus Day has been changed to Indigenous People's day because NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THE POOR HECKIN INJUNS WERE INVADED.

Now I'm not saying what happened was right or that the injuns were wrong, but liberal types have some weird noble savage myth that suggests the injuns were totally peaceful until whitey came and impromptu slaughtered them, and stuff like this is a part of it. It actually makes the injuns look more primitive and retarded than they actually were.

https://www.ohio.edu/orgs/glass/vol/1/14.htm

For instance, consider the mourning wars, which are well attested. When a member of the Iroquois died, the matriarch of the clan would go into mourning and order that the male members of the tribe go out and capture some people usually from the local Algonquians. They would torture them by cutting and hitting their hands, then make them sing and dance. Then they would either decide to adopt them into the tribe (this happened a lot because part of the process of getting captives was to replenish the tribe) or they would have the whole tribe ultimately torture them to death with brands, rough skin gloves, the children of the village stabbing their feet with knives, mutilating their hands, scalping etc and then de-fleshing their hands and feet for the flesh there. Originally captives were probably adopted most of the time, but once Europeans brought epidemics and shit the system broke down. They would be disgusted if the captive cried out in pain and would kill them immediately, sometimes when retarded Jesuits refused to do so because they were stronk martyrs like Jesus the Iroquois warriors reportedly ate them to absorb their bravery. All of their neighbours loathed them for this shit and would do the same back to them especially if Algonquin Indians captured the Iroquois in warfare.

These are the Iroquois, who are usually more well known for their ingenious inventive confederation, muh proto constitution and representative moiety institution, longhouses and gardening beans or some shit, but if you go on youtube you see nobody mention the historically well-attested mourning wars at all and just noble savage shit almost likening the Iroquois to some kind of peaceful proto-US representative republic. In reality they were metal as, if you taught kids in school this nobody would want to patronisingly jerk ofPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

as far as I understand, Engels conceptualized communists not as the ones which inform the proletarian, but those who were simply "in the know", who were willing to aid the inevitable revolution. the ideological or propagandist, precipitative, role never belonged in a marxist system. this seems like a recent development, only emerging with the late modernist theorists and their sociological critiques (althusser, etc.) original marxist doctrine specifies explicitly that –
>Communists know only too well that all conspiracies are not only useless, but even harmful. They know all too well that revolutions are not made intentionally and arbitrarily, but that, everywhere and always, they have been the necessary consequence of conditions which were wholly independent of the will and direction of individual parties and entire classes.

Ruling classes want to preserve their own status more than anything else. They prefer to keep the current base of economy including the way energy is produced basically the same because they fear that any major changes would lead to changes in the class composition of society. So their solution is to just cut off everybody but them from the energy supply. They think the system as is will be enough for them. The remaining non ruling class people who support this are people who think they will be on the inner circle and not be cut off.

From an ecological view it's of course nonsense, if society moves to a better energy supply system that is not polluting like nuclear and renewables, that will do more to improve the environment than austerity. In a more ambitious advance to fusion power or stuff like moon based remote solar it's possible for the industrial system to reverse it's role as a drain on the ecology and turn into an ecological support system and have a net benefit on nature.

The capitalist system is really hard on people and causes a lot of suffering, and the Malthusian type argumentation is just an attempt to make up reasons why people should suffer. There is no resource shortage, if you account for technological possibilities.

A demographically shrinking society will increase the class power of workers, so there is a silver lining.
Once we make it to a socialist mode of production, population is likely going to start growing, because historically when societies got to a higher stage where they deployed a better mode of production, that's what usually happened. There are some intermediate ecological constrains that will have to be added to a socialist economic planning system, but we should see this like reaching a higher technological level necessary to allow for more economic growth.

I've seen Zizek say that a million times, not sure if he's quoting someone else. A certain subset of online westerners are used to buying cheap Chinese gadgets, driving/flying on a whim, replacing media consumption devices every few years and the myriad other ecologically devastating things we do to make misery comfortable. If anything, declining birth rates across advanced countries makes population limitations easier to accept than moving idiots out of deserts and getting rid of air conditioning.

As I said above, his work must be placed with the class society and contradictions of the late 19th century. His work was a direct challenge to the rising proletarian movement, just as Hitler's Mein Kampf was emblematic of the response of the bourgeoisie to the October Revolution. In his work he actually does tacitly admit that class struggle is the motor of history, but his response is simply to argue for suppression of it. He was also a strong advocate for colonialism and despise his protests about religion, he encouraged using it to keep workers drunk and ignorant. That is why, despite all the howlings of pathetic anarchists, ultralefts and anti-Soviet "leftists" who try to reinterpret him, the nazis were indeed the true inheritors of his ideas. Fascist German troops marched into the Soviet Union carrying copies of his works edited by Baeumler.

Fascist Italy saw the complete dominance of monopoly capitalism, banking cartels and industrial conglomerates were integrated into the state, corporations set up to suppress class struggle, in the 1920s privatisation was carried out and during the Great Depression it had millions unemployed, while in the Soviet Union, unemployment was abolished thanks to the Five Year Plan.

There is a complete difference between fascist Italy and the Soviet Union. In Italy the bourgeoisie reestablished their power by suppressing the revolutionary proletarian movement in the early 1920s, whereas in the USSR they were completely dispossessed and all private property and land ownership abolished, and economic planning where workers managed themselves and exercised the proletarian dictatorship (which naturally Mussolini attacked) and replaced the old inherited bureaucrats and managers, replaced the market system, which still reigned in Italy. Fascist Italy joined the reactionary rebellion against the Spanish Republic in 1936 with even more aplomb than fascist Germany, and also invaded the USSR alongside the axis for a "crusade".

Italian fascism must seen as an attempt by the Italian bourgeoisie to catch up and replicate what France, Britain, Germany and America achieved by 1914. The integration of financial cartels, massive centralisation of capital, colonial expansion (Libya, East Africa), and of course wars to redivide the world (Ethiopia, Yugoslavia, Greece, Albania).

Let's go by parts.
>Fascist Italy saw the complete dominance of monopoly capitalism
It would be more accurate to say that Fascist Italy saw a complete monopoly of the State over capital:
"In the course of its developmental and autarchic program, in 1937, the Fascist government declared the IRI a perma­nent parastate agency. By that time the lstituto controlled over forty-four percent of all Italian capital stock, and al­most eighteen percent of the total capital of the nation. For all intents and purposes, the credit system of the nation was under the control of state and parastate agencies. By the end of the 'thirties, approximately eighty percent of the credit available in the Italian economy was controlled directly or indirectly by the state.68 The Fascist government had devel­oped more elaborate controls over the economic enterprise of the nation than any other state of the period save the Soviet Union" (A. James Gregor).

>Banking cartels were integrated into the state

"In the face of the international situation the Fascist gov­ernment increased its legislative controls over the financial institutions of the peninsula. The centralization of banking
to which Borkenau later alluded was begun during 1926. By the fall of 1926 a government Istituto di Emissione be­came the central agency for the issuance of national cur­rency"-
(A. James Gregor).
It would have had no sense that Mussolini allowed banking cartels to thrive, yet took away from them the right to issue national currency. It does not make sense, either, that the lstituto per la ricostruzione industriale, being an state agency, became the principal credit institution; nor that through this same institution was the Fascist government able to de facto nationalize all banking industry.
Before the advent of Fascism, the principal banking association was the Associazione Bancaria Italiana. Instead of letting this association be independent and determine the development of the banking industry, the Fascist régime established the General Fascist Banking Confederation, which gave the industry new responsibilities under the syndical state: "The Syndical Section became officially responsible for a programme that was almost entirely new as compared with that carried out by the previous Banking AssociaPost too long.

This sort of thinking was exposed a long time ago by Dimitrov. A state is only ever an instrument for the rule of one class over another, it doesn't exist above classes, it's the elimination of any sort of bourgeois democratic methods by open terrorism. The economic system of fascist Italy differed little from the New Deal in America. Both were modifications of capitalism with state intervention intended to stave off revolution by the working class, using public funds to bail out private banks. But where does the money for this come from? Through exploitation of the proletariat.

>It would have had no sense that Mussolini allowed banking cartels to thrive, yet took away from them the right to issue national currency

Same thing happened in Britain from 1946-1997. Central banks which operate in all capitalist states issue currency. The fact that fascist Italy centralised banking is another reflection of its tendency towards monopoly. Gregor, like all liberal analysts of fascism, mistakes the inevitable tendency of capitalism towards monopoly/centralisation for something new, when it's a inherent part of the growth of the means of production beyond the control of the old elites, who are disconnected. The Italian partisans were largely communists, certainly the best and first fighters were communists, but a large section of the bourgeoisie abandoned Mussolini in 1943 because of the complete failure of his campaign in north Africa and impending invasion by the Americans and British. much like German in November 1918, the bourgeosie was split and a section preferred peace, realising they would lose much more.

>The first of these is the enrolment of the various producing categories with due regard to their qualifications as employers, employed

This is another thing which delineates fascism from socialism, that bourgeois employers are permitted their own associations, much like any current capitalist state where employers associations are rife.

As you know, Belarus has been on the news during this last year and the other as the NATO soft power campaing tries to conquer it. Despite this attempt, they have not been succesful, and Belarus continues to have Lukashenko as his president.
So, as this soft power move hasn't worked, there might be an attempt to actually invade the country.
Of course, this would be quite the endeavour, and as such, there needs to be a lot of propaganda in order to actually justify such action. For Poland and the baltic states, it would be quite easy to justify it, Belarus is on Russia's side, and thus it wouldn't be an attack, it was "self defence offensive" against Russia. This is to say, the baltic nations and Poland's armies are quite corrupt, and such campaign would probably go nowhere as there would be miscommunications or even some general selling weapons to the enemy side for quick money.
On the other side, on western europe and America, such war would be extremely unpopular, not only because people are just against war itself, but because it would be a war against a Rusian ally which borders actual Russia.
So, how do you think an invasion of Belarus by NATO would play out?

So what if they praise Marx? Ask yourself why it’s more politically “correct” to talk well about Marx and not about Hitler. The most subversive things Marx said was a critique of modern society and took the side of the working class in their efforts to form unions, associations, clubs, parties. In hindsight a lot of the things the working class asked for was for “good” things such as shorter working day, higher wages, political rights, the universal suffrage. These are things most people would look at with reverence because it was eventually successful. Marx also stood on the side of the northern union against the confederacy, another thing that could easily be praised in hindsight. The “right side” of history is always written by the victor. And the victor is still only victorious to the extent that it’s comparable to the past so let me give you an example: slavery is critiqued and called inhumane, civil rights movement lead to political rights being given to former slaves, eventually this idea sticks and everyone sees every human as a sovereign. The ideas of political liberalism are a lot more stronger than economic liberalism. In hindsight political liberalism crushed almost all other forms of political systems of representation and rights. This is a consequence of liberalism’s centuries long struggle against feudalistic and absolutist monarchical structures. Liberalism literally arose out of the absolute sovereign and feudal sovereigns.

The fascists cannot reverse liberalism without taking away individual sovereignty, literally reversing centuries of progress in favor of absolutist monarchy or feudalistic structures which is retarded considering all our economic progress and the fact that feudalism based its support only in feudalistic landed gentry.

1. The industrial revolution rendered any and all feudalistic landed property invalid
2. Because of this, consequently the absolute sovereign can no longer levy any power without a parliament, which would still render any absolute monarch invalid
3. Turning industrial production into a feudalistic style of production would to famine, pauperism and revolution

This is why fascists are essentially liberal reactionaries. They will want the gains of liberalism while turning back the clock into a political structure only fitted to landed feudal property. The irony of fascists is that they literally cannot exist without war; any Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

No. And this also addresses your "led by POC". Communist cadres should be above simple apparent contradictions. They should analyze and understand how appearances around them emerge. Masses can't be cadres. Masses can't understand nuanced takes. This contradiction is apparent when unions lobby for war to keep their weapons manufacturing jobs.
>The hearts of people of colour are already invested in revolution.
Absolutely wrong. You must acknowledge that the working class is predominantly submerged in liberal ideology. A good example of this is the more radical elements of the working class, the so called American "democratic socialists". They are completely engaged in capitalist realism and their goals are entirely modest (eg eventually push Biden and Pelosi to consider maybe talking about Healthcare for all). These people are not for "the revolution". They are anti-capitalist in aesthetic only. Otherwise, still operating under liberal terms. Same with George Floyd protestors. Except they are not even coherently anti-capitalist. They are simply rebelling a little against the government. This is normal for citizens to do in liberal countries. The US is an exception because they are submissive hyper-individualists, culturally bootlickers, and are a militarized surveillance police state.

You have american brainworms and are thinking in liberal terms. These monuments are not "theirs" and the reason they dislike when BLM topples monuments is because of the reverence of tradition, history, and symbols. They are fighting a liberal war at the level of ideas. The statues are merely symbols in this battle. Nobody gave a shit about them but they are politicized to virtue signal in favor of black people or in favor of tradition, history and other stupid shit rightoids care about.

As a Marxist, you should see through this.

This is complete nonsense. Class differences cannot be reconciled under capitalism, but trans issues certainly can. Why would you put people that can lose their revolutionary potential with a couple inconsequential reforms at the forefront? Transgenderism isn't a rebellion against the ruling class, its a rebellion against your peers. I would go as far to say that transgenderism comes from the top-down, from gender studies conducted in bourgeois academia. It fits perfectly into the western neoliberal hegemony as i outlined in >>536709 . Revolutions comes from the masses not misfits. Besides I don't think that men on estradiol make good soldiers kek.

OP here. Boy has this thread been derailed, eh. To reiterate: we're holding a Capital Volume II reading group. Plan is to meet on the 17th to discuss Chapter 1. Join our Matrix chat for the meeting.
