Consider this post on "midwits":

>but for sure there's a sort of educated-idiot or overhyped-man-baby syndrome that these people fall into where they are given positions of power and are considered to be people who should know things (like basically all politicians, and many doctors and therapists, basically all professionals who know just enough to do their jobs but dont take it further and think for themselves, or are given purview over a wider area than their real knowledge should apply to by even less knowledgeable people, mostly politicians here) or just consider themselves to be thing-knowers because they're autistic and it strokes their ego, idk whatever


The flip side of that is the conspirasoid schizo who says all the experts are wrong because they hyperfocus autistically on some little inconsistency or detail or small anomaly which for the expert to explain why it isn't correct would take months of instruction in the background data or years, the problem is on the internet people think they're experts by googling shit and what they're interpreting as "midwittery" is actually an educated person who's too exasperated to spend hours of their time hand holding a schizoid through all the actual arguments on evidence for the 99999th time so they just dismiss them. not that the schizoid even wants that because their eyes would glaze over if they had to sit through that anyway. So when the educated person dismisses them they say "SEE, I knew it!".

Years of education actually give in addition to formal knowledge a sort of tacit knowledge which is useful in dealing with ideas and arguments and research has shown university education makes people less prone to believing conspiracy theories. Educated people are more humble about the limits of their knowledge because they actually are more aware of the extent of total knowledge out there and the amount of work actually needed to learn and internalize it and therefore respect experts more. OTOH people with less education can often be pretty arrogant and run roughshod over expertise and scientific consensus because they don't respect or value education and knowledge. Which is what leads to them thinking the gap between what they know and an expert knows is something that can be corrected with a few days of googling.

This is why the midwit meme is dumb, it attacks whats actually pretty good advice (getting data and sources for shit) in favor of soPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm not a total leftist noob. I like to think I understand some of the ABCs: Socialism follows the destruction of the previous state replaced with a new state wherein workers are the dominant political group and when production is under the control of workers (either through nationalization from a worker's government or the control of various unions, syndicates, or other worker organizations). Money is instead replaced with some kind of labor voucher typically based on labor hours that specifically has no investment value. Over time the socialist state develops production to a degree of abundance and efficiency that many if not all of the state mechanisms and plans become irrelevant and society transitions again into a stateless, classless, moneyless society where people work for as much as they need.

Specifically it's that last part I have difficulty understanding. I wholeheartedly support socialism, as the son of a cabinet maker and a school teacher I identify with all workers and consider nearly all capitalists as social parasites that impede efficient societies, but when I put the word "communism" into the imagination engine I just get a blank spot. The closest thing I imagine is unironically the Federation from Star Trek (old trek, not disgusting NuTrek), what am I missing here? is there something I need to read, more Marx or what?

Stalin is the general secretary of the USSR and he is of proletarian blood. His dad is a drunk shoemaker while his mom… usual SAHM wife. He is one of those old bolsheviks who opposed the monarchy, gets arrested several times, and doesn't even have royal ties. Prove me wrong

Fine, but his ascension to a higher class means he's essentially like a Cromwell figure. Stalin lived in a large, private house. He had a butler. He had cooks. He was not a fucking prole at that point. Class isn't rigid and set in stone..

I'd be surprised if many people here are coders. I'm a warehouse worker making 13€ an hour (production bonuses included) and know from years of posting here that this is not usual.

As for history, well, it has a way of catching you off guard. Marx and Engels, and Lenin after them, have been largely vindicated, though not completely of course.

>>398243

Stalin didn't consider himself to be "of proletarian blood". His class background was interesting. His father was a small business owner at a point, and Stalin called himself in one speech "the son of an exploiter". The inbred Nazi poster is correct in that class isn't set in stone. A Morach he wasn't, the idea is stupid. He lived in wealth, but he wasn't a leach like the Morachs or Capitalists. As long as states exist, the statesmen will convince themselves they deserve to live in extravagance because of the hard work and preassures they're under. Yeah it's "le ironic", but oh well.

First I admit that I'm not read enough, I keep hearing that socialism (with a state) is just a transitional form and that the ultimate goal is full communism when the state will dissolve itself.

How is that supposed to happen? Will the society just reach some kind of religious perfection that it will make the state unnecessary? Also Stalin was right that communism could be achieved in just one country or not? Could anyone explain it to me in simple terms?

>inb4 read more Garl Margs and Lenin

I will, but my lazy ass wants a simple explanation now.

If you don't think economics is a profession that performs better than random people when making guesses about the future (see the infamous study by Philip Tetlock), then your analogy with doctors does not work. Or do you believe that formally educated doctors don't perform better than randos playing doctor.

It strikes me (hard) that like 80% of our "vol" team is anglo, while our posteriat is like at the very least 50% NOT anglo.

It shows not only a complete disconnection from ones sense of reality but also what happens when an individual is so politically extreme that they lose their own sense of whatever the hell they stand for along with an unwillingness to get educated on reality. Islam(especially sunni islam) is a religion that calls for arab supremacy while nazism calls for german supremacy both ideas are fundamentally anti european and end up leading towards the destruction of non Germanic and non arab europeans as a whole simply in the name of their imperialistic motives yet the figure shown in this pic a reactionary white male is so disconnected from this simple reality that he has taken on political views that he would've been killed under, and what's even sadder is historically nazis did become muslims, modern european reactionaries show open support if not fully commit to islam despite the destruction its caused on their own homes along with nazism not necessarily because nazism and radical islam benefit europeans but simply because these political views comfort those people. Fucking poetic

Fuck off with this extremism/"re-radicalism" narrative. "Extremism" is a subjective label based on divergence from politically acceptable views as defined by the dictatorship of the dominant class. If an evil, perverted, degenerate mass murder system isn't labelling you a political extremist or a super radical, or worse, is labelling your enemies this, then this is cause for deep concern.

In promoting this view, ie that we aim to "re-radicalize" the nazis or that our views are moderate/sensible in comparison to their "extremism" vis the dominant system then you're capitulating to their own narrative of us supposedly being "on the side of the system" and them being the "true revolutionaries".

American "socialists" may have been long since bought off en masse to serve as shock troopers for capital but you're fucking everything up for the global movement by shilling this reactionary horseshit

Statement by President Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians? Such a disgrace, and I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country. Wouldn’t it be an honor to have a team named the Cleveland Indians, and wouldn’t it be disrespectful to rip that name and logo off of those jerseys? The people of Cleveland cannot be thrilled and I, as a FORMER baseball fan, cannot believe things such as this are happening. A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore!
