IMF Calls for Taxing World's Richest to Curb Inequality, Stave Off Social Unrest
If governments don't close the gap between society's richest and poorest members—which was growing before and has exploded during the coronavirus crisis—by raising wages for low-income workers, taxing wealthy households, and using the increased revenue to improve social welfare, they should expect diminished trust in government and increased social polarization and unrest.

Fact: I can't prove why capitalism will fail on its own. All I got is a bunch of slogans that I have absorbed through the last three years of being online which I can't actually explain. I can pack a punch in showing the problems of capitalism, however I can't make the final cut of "this will lead to collapse" convincingly.
Statement: I can't be intellectually honest and keep supporting any sort of radical societal change unless I can prove to myself the fact that capitalism is bound for collapse to the point that I can then prove this same fact to a neutral party convincingly.
Conclusion: I need all of your strongest arguments against capitalism surviving. And not just problematic issues that can be theoretically solved, but real shit that will screw over the system big time.

What's weird is that the trots that insist they are Leninists
The defining feature of Trotskyism is Permanent Revolution which Lenin rejected not once but twice.
Trotskyite parties do not organise along the lines of Lenins "party of a new type" laid out in What Is To Be Done
Trotsky himself was expelled in 1927 for setting up opposition demonstrations after resoundingly losing a vote 724,000 votes to the CC and 4000 to the Trotskyitesand going ahead anyway breaking Democratic Centralism - which most Trot parties don't organise along
So Trots don't organise along Leninist lines, believe in the moronic theory of PR , don't adhere to Democratic Centralism…
The very fact that Trots call themselves trots instead of Leninists is a lesson in dialectical and historical materialism on it's own

Threads about this war are made frequently on 4chinlets /int/, and the argument that usually comes from the reactionaries that browse that place is that the peaceful deal would have enabled the incorporation of Finland into the Soviet Union, like it happened to the baltics, and that the annexation of Finland was their plan all along.

Really makes you think when social democrats were in power during winter war. The only reason you can call Finland "quasi fascist" state is because USSR pushed them to that direction by starting a war of aggression.

>>152247
>How true is this?
Peaceful deal would've certainly kept Finland independent but it also was politically impossible to pull off. Finland was a democracy and people rejected it, it's ironic since "fascist" leaders like Mannerheim tried to push the deal through by, just to be rejected by parliament and its constituents.

Thankfully, they only captured their previous territories (on Leningrad anyway), though i'm not sure if they'd would've taken more had their army been less dependent on Germany.

Why religion institutions being christian, muslim or scientologist ecc. seek expansion like a capitalist entreprise does?
Monetary gains is hardly an issues for many of these groups and their followers in the countries where they expanded are hardly milkable for money (not to the degree and actual capitalist interprise would)
What their endgame? What do missionaries want? What purpose opening churches or mosques in other countries serve?

Historically most religions don’t really seek to expand. Pagan berserkers didn’t send out missionaries. Empires like Rome and the Persians let their conqured peoples keep their religions for this reason, they didn’t care.

With religions like Christianity and Buddhism, it’s probably a combination of factors. One, they started out as more of what we today would call movements - movements for peace, anti-imperialism, anti-caste or slavery, general reforms and so on. In the early days they also likely spread due to a growing dissatisfaction with capricious deities, in the manner that Christianity turns people off today.

Two, there is the evolutionary factor that religions that sent out missionaries, and who would take anybody could simply acquire more followers from larger geographical areas. What comes down to us are the variants that were more successful.

In addition to those two factors, sometimes governments made them official. In ancient times city states, clans, and warlords would use deities as a sort of banner to unite people under. When Christianity started becoming popular, they used things like different interpretations of the trinity as their banner. When Christianity started becoming potentially threatening, Constantine made it the official religion of Rome, which neutered it.

As we were just raided for the fucking umpteenth time just now I was thinking to myself, wtf even causes someone to barf out that many low-effort schizophrenic shitposts on an imageboard, especially with such, weird, disgusting, and sadistic content? And this isn't even referring to other flavors of rightoids such as mindlessly contrarian stupid/pol/yps and NatSoys who actually articulate their retarded beliefs coherently, I actually understand why those people do it, the first one can be fun as fuck tbh, and the second are filled with people who actually understand that there are systemic problems, they just misidentify them and want to apply the wrong solutions, no I'm talking about the people who come here and act like little toddlers spamming nonsensical one-sentence threads and spamming gore and child porn, all the while thinking they're "owning us." They just get on my nerves so FUCKING much, and I just wan to know literally what is even the point of doing it. Are there any people, not just people who used to be /pol/yps or rightoids in general, but who specifically spammed the most random garbage and were basically proud to reduce themselves to infants, and now have recovered and become leftists? I'd really like to here your perspectives. Also btw, this is just me quickly getting my thoughts off quickly, I'm going to make a more well-thought out thread with both questions and some of my own theories about human behavior in general and why some it is so bizarre, because some of you Homo Sapiens really weird me the FUCK out.

To be fair it seems like the CPC has actively been working to improve overall living and working conditions, and doing a pretty good job of it. However this isn’t necessarily indicative of being on the path to socialism. It seems a lot more like the product of the CPC trying to mitigate and smooth over class contradictions, something they openly state is their goal. In essence this would just make them a social democracy, although less like the Clement Attlee/Olaf Palme type and more like the Bismarck/Peron type. Eventually this system will fall apart as capitalism’s contradictions make it impossible to satisfy the interests of both capitalists and proles. What the CPC will do when this happens isn’t clear.
