Why are westerners so cucked by the concept of negative rights?
Why would anyone say “nobody owes anybody anything” and think that’s actually good? How do westoids not see that their society is totally fucked and will collapse because it’s built on sand? How the fuck could any retard be duped to think that a society where nobody gives a fuck about anyone else is positive?
Basically, why isn’t the average westerner suicidal when they demonstrably have nothing to live for and their entire way of viewing human relations should make you want to kill yourself?

Lel check this magic out:

Private property— use and abuse of property, can buy and sell property
Private property— buy multiple property’s
Private property— accumulated big property
Private property— centralized property in all but name
Private property— universal property
Universal property— socialism/communism

Ta da! Hey libertarians, if you’ve ever felt like the world is becoming “communist” now you know bitch. Without bourgeois private property centralization there would be no communism. Unless you are some freak that thinks private property shouldn’t be bought or sold, which means it’s no longer private property and is instead landed property, kek.

Not that anon, but that’s not what’s being advocated.
In fact, as you read on it’s an argument against that because commanding people to have emotions like love is absurd. Under capitalism, we’re already living in the hell that is created basing a society on emotions, but they’re as abstraction.
This is abundantly apparent in sectors like the service industry that demands an anodyne disposition, “service with a smile”, and that “the-customer-is-always-right” philosophy is internalized.
Instead, socialism attempts to ameliorate some of this by allowing more autonomy in the work place than under capitalism. No, this doesn’t mean basing the world on “feelings”, but creating environments that facilitate more positive emotions and psychological states in the world.
After all, why would we want socialism if it creates nothing but a population of depressed, angry, dissatisfied, and unhappy people.
Makes no sense.
While there would likely still be obligations that we would all need to attend to under socialism, the goal would still be to create an environment where the line between “obligation” and genuine desire to want to help others gets more and more blurred over time.
That’s at least the way I see it.

Key witness in FBI case against Assange held in custody to stop his ‘crime spree’ in Iceland – media
Sigurdur Thordarson, also known under the moniker ‘Siggi the Hacker’, was placed into custody in Iceland last month, the newspaper Stundin said, citing his lawyer. A judge agreed with the police that if Thordarson remained free, he would continue an ongoing spree of crimes in the European nation. He is now kept in the highest-security prison in the country, Litla-Hraun, the report said.

Idpol only helps a tiny group of people because they get activist careers or token positions. It's not actually helping or representing the people it claims to be helping.

I think you got a confused picture of me ( >>535198 ) and you're missing the point. I am not a red conservative, i'm LG[B]T myself. 

Didn't vote is the biggest party in probably every western election. And it's typically the lower classes that don't bother voting. Why? They don't feel represented because political discussion is increasingly centered around culture war bullshit. The ruling class knows this and it exploits these issues to divide the population. It's truly insane that transpeople who are a less than % of the population live rent free in the heads of progressives and conservatives. Sex workers seem more important to many socialists than blue collar workers. I know people who care more about gender-neutral street signs than young people who are forced to do unpaid work. Idpol is game where the only winning move is not to play.

A couple of examples of the idpol disease: Left Alliance is the most leftist party in the Finnish parliament. It's descended from actual socialist parties and what does LA do today? They embarrass themselves with inane shit like gender-neutral snow plowing which was already proven to be a failure in Sweden. They changed their party color from red to pink in 2018 btw. Or take Die Linke in Germany, they are bleeding voters which isnt surprising given it advocates for the same policies as the socdem party but with an extra layer of idpol. Another example from Finland is Extinction Rebellion (elokapina) who do climate demos with drag queens. Like drags or don't you know that it's only popular with a small demographic so the question arises. And man I feel bad about invoking the stonetoss comic
>Are you sure this will help raise awareness about climate change?
<Climate change?
Socialist politics today is more and more dominated by middle class pmc types that insist that their favorite pet peeve issues are made front and centre of activism for the detriment of wider proletarian unity and actual proletarian politics. This is why having a principled anti-idpol position is important.

this is a nice simple story, but it's not universally true. in the British case the Labour party is in a death spiral not because of culture war bullshit but because it operates with a model of politics which "worked" in the 1990s, but has the long term effect of destroying core support.
essentially it's a strategy that says: working class areas will always vote Labour, so make your platform and messages perform well in the marginal seats that swing between parties. this is always interpreted as: adopt a right-wing platform, and funneling resources to those seats takes priority over organizing a presence in every local area.
the difficulty is that you then see a turnout crash (1997 was a postwar low, 2001 an all time low) as people become cynical about the ability of politicians to improve their lives, even marginally, and local people tend to become disaffected because their local MP is more interested in their national prominence than in helping their constituents. (after all, this seat has been Labour since the 1950s, it's hardly likely to change now…) eventually, the marginal seats will swing again (often helped by the fact that after a long period in government nothing has been done that changes swing-voters "values" meaning they're as if not more right-wing than they were to begin with) and the party's out of power.

worse yet, all those safe areas remember the Labour government that did nothing for them. crashing turnout thins the amount of voters needed to take a seat, and many of those who do still vote aren't as rigidly linked to Labour as they once were. the end result of the strategy is found in Scotland, where the Labour party was outflanked on the left by the SNP and eventually destroyed in the 2015 election after spending the 2014 referendum campaign campaigning alongside the Conservatives to say "better things aren't possible."
(a simple story might be that they were outflanked by nationalist idpol, but it's important to look at the actual "yes" campaign for independence: it was built on the idea that independence meant the sociPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

normally 3rd world problems are reduced to being generally poor and sometimes in a war, america is a country where 40% of the few jobs available pay below 20k a year and most of its 76% of its population is barely scratching by on rent while child marriage, and prison labour is still legalized, slavery is still a problem there due to rampant and deliberatly unregulated human trafficking, its population is far higher than 330 million but at 450 due to the fact that illegals dont count as citizens all while nearly all of its cities and states are flat out bankrupt from being deliberatly poorly designed to raise property prices while the level of rampant rape is so unbelievably strong that americans cant trust their own doctors to not take advantage of them and had several epidemics of mistrust in its daycare centers due to reports of child predation. what makes things even worse is that you cant even rest on the belief that the country is worth anywhere near as much as they state it is, america has only produced 7 trillion usd worth of assets throughout its entire history while blowing trillions on some of the dumbest shit you can imagine like funding unprofitable corporations, construction of massive highways that cost a trillion annually and endless foreign wars, the entire american economy rests on the exploitation of foreigners that use the usd to barely keep mainland america barely intact as a country or just outright extortion and coups.

How to end the pandemic: The case for eradication

Nice statement. The experience of the last period shows, only the eradication of the virus is the only solution. But now, even New Zealand and Australia are removing the restrictions. The only way out is the independent involvement of the masses. The October 1 school strike by Lisa Diaz indicates the awakening of the masses. The coming online webinar will be a main step in this fight.

Australian here. It doesn't work.

We could have done this pre-delta if the world was as harsh as we were, but that was never going to happen.
Even with our extremely strict restrictions the virus still spread because many jobs can't be done remotely and once someone picks it up at work, they go home, their partner/child/housemate gets it, they go to work and the cycle continues.
What we've found is that this variant spreads so rapidly that even before you or the person you got it from has symptoms, you've given it to someone you live with and they may have already given it to someone in their place of work.

As someone who has spent over 200 days of the past 18ish months in lockdown, I'm telling you now, get vaccinated, wash your hands, wear a mask if necessary and get on with your life. The answer now is appropriate funding for hospitals and regulation for things such as increasing ventilation in buildings etc.

The virus won't be around forever, pandemics come and go, but it will take a long time and people need to be able to live their lives. Suppression is just an interim strategy until significant vaccination can be achieved.

Australia could easily have maintained zero with closed borders and modest spending on quarantine system. Obviously not acceptable to capitalist system and porkies have been screeching to reopen the borders to prop up their failing economic system.

The "living with covid" era will not be a return back to normal and the idea that the lockdowns were the only thing preventing a return to normal is a bizarre delusion of the liberals. There will be mass death and disruptions to supply chains as seen in other nations which have allowed free spread.

This will destabilize the capitalist system and accelerate its collapse. As usual, the capitalists have made the accelerationist choice.

I fully supported lockdowns during Melbourne's marathon 111 day lockdown last year. I fully supported them this year. Now we're at a point where after 60 days straight the numbers just keep going up and up and have over doubled the peak in cases we had last year. This is spreading out of control. Lockdown is only slowing the spread, but has done nothing to eradicate it.
