Chiang Kai-shek's Secret Past: The Memoir Of His Second Wife, Ch'en Chieh-ju
This engrossing memoir tells the fascinating story of one of China's great leaders during the Nationalist revolution of the 1920s and of the woman who paid a staggering price so that he could attain his ambition. The tale begins in 1919 when the thirty-two-year-old Chiang Kai-shek met the naïve thirteen-year-old whom he would call Ch'en Chieh-ju. He pursued her relentlessly for two years until she finally agreed to marry her brash and forceful suitor. Chieh-ju was at her husband's side constantly for the seven years of their marriage, which enabled her to chronicle with immediacy and vivid detail his single-minded pursuit of power in the Kuomintang (KMT).So explosive were her revelations that the KMT used threats and bribes to block U.S. publication plans in the 1960s. Now, her long-suppressed memoir finally reveals Chiang Kai-shek's human side, which has been shrouded in myth. Chiang Kai-shek emerges as a lustful, ill-tempered, quarrelsome, stubborn, and boundlessly ambitious man. In pursuit of his goals, he abandoned the young wife he seemingly loved to make a politically expedient alliance with Soong Mei-ling, now famed as Madame Chiang. Despite his betrayal, Chieh-ju's love for her husband is clearly evident. She paints here a stirring portrait of their personal life as well as of the infighting and intrigue that marked her husband's early political career. Above all, her story conveys a keen sense of the texture of upper-class life in the China of that period, a quality academic studies rarely capture.

What causes (rampant) suburbanization? Is it a need to create debt, white flight/redlining, a genuine desire to build some sort of housing, or a combination of those or more?

In the United States it was quite literally just racist zoning laws passed at the height of Jim Crow. There's nothing with suburbanizaiton in and of itself (before our cities were bulldozed to make way for the car, many suburbs were connected by rail for example), but when suburbs—i.e. single family homes, are all you're allowed to build, then that's when it becomes a problem.

Shireen Abu Akleh: New investigation finds Israeli soldier likely fired fatal shot
An investigation by the Washington Post into the death of Shireen Abu Akleh has concluded that an Israeli soldier likely fired the fatal shot that killed the veteran Al Jazeera journalist last month. The in-depth analysis and visual investigation, published on Sunday, examined more than “five dozen videos, social media posts and photos of the event" and "conducted two physical inspections of the area and commissioned two independent acoustic analyses of the gunshots”.

They also shot a lot of people who weren’t journalists, on purpose. I honestly have an aversion to the absurd self-regard western propagandists have for their profession, but I do think it’s bizarre that Israel can shoot journalists in the head and bomb their newsrooms, and it can barely be reported on without extreme consternation.

Whenever you hear anti-communists talk about death tolls of events like the "holomdore" they don't use the number of any list of people, but instead using estimates of differences between projected and real population numbers. By this very logic though capitalism is guilty of the murder of 22 million people.

capitalism is responsable for the death of just 2.5 billion people in it's 300 year history.
just in the US because of covid died 1 million people, more people than the purges by stalin, and while the purges had political reasons, the holocorona did not, they just let if spread and did everything in power to keep it spreading, thus was intentional, thus a genocide.

There is no communist parties in most western countries either and even the ones that call themselves "socialist" are social Democrats at best.

A new neoliberal reality has emerged in the Chavist nation through the use of the US dollar, state controls being lifted and a new relationship with Washington

Adriana drives through the streets of downtown Caracas while the city sleeps. She picks up customers through the Yummy app, the Venezuelan Uber. For a few months, this was the best-kept secret among the local micro-economy: demand was through the roof and a good night an alert worker could make around $60. But soon word spread and many people put their cars to work. Adriana’s customer pulls out a $20 bill to pay for the trip, which costs $17. She pretends to search the glove compartment for change, but they both know how this ends. “Sorry, I don’t seem to have any change. Thanks, see you!” And she drives off $3 better off. Low denomination bills are scarce in the headlong capitalism that is gripping Venezuela. Everybody is thinking about money. Daily life is governed by greenbacks. The country, through Chavism, has moved on from the unsuccessful application of the Socialist Bolivarian revolution to a process of opening up branded in the forges of liberalism. The phenomenon has caused a mirage of economic recovery to appear.

Gone are the days of rigid controls. Up until very recently, Venezuelans hid their dollars because it was a crime to possess them beyond the watchful eye of the state. People had to queue for hours to buy rationed food at regulated prices and bolívars, the local currency, were few and far between. The panorama now is completely different. The use of the dollar as everyday currency, the lifting of price controls and tariff-free imports have changed the reality under which Venezuelans previously attempted to subsist

The economy, says Luis Vicente León, an economist and president of the polling company Datanálisis, rebels against the established order faster than societies themselves. “What is happening in Venezuela, as it did before in China or Russia, is that people are looking for imaginative solutions to the control and interventionism of the state. When the government experienced problems due to sanctions and international isolation, they started to realize that riding this surfboard that society had created was more of a solution than a problem. And the government jumped on.” And exactly the same thing happened with the dollar, which went almost overnight from being demonized to providing some guarantee of a certain stability.

The construction of socialism is a gradual process which can take decades or longer to complete. Venezuela is a state under siege, it's not surprising that their progress has been slowed by the difficult conditions in which they find themselves. What matters is that the working class is in power and they are fighting for their lives against US imperialism. Complaining about them not going fast enough or not being pure enough, dismissing them as socdems, etc is the position of Western armchairists.

One could see the focus on developing it. The sanctions have marked the need on doing it with fire, and the Euroasiatic tour by Maduro shows the closeness of Venezuela to the Antiempire countries that managed to do it.

>The Negro Family: The Case For National Action, commonly known as the Moynihan Report, was a 1965 report on black poverty in the United States written by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, an American scholar serving as Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Lyndon B. Johnson and later to become a US Senator. Moynihan argued that the rise in black single-mother families was caused not by a lack of jobs, but by a destructive vein in ghetto culture, which could be traced to slavery times and continued discrimination in the American South under Jim Crow

>In 1960, 37 percent of all persons in Federal and State prisons were Negro. In that year, 56 percent of the homicide and 57 percent of the assault offenders committed to State institutions were Negro


>Negroes represent a third of all youth in training schools for juvenile delinquents


>It is probable that at present, a majority of the crimes against the person, such as rape, murder, and aggravated assault are committed by Negroes. There is, of course, no absolute evidence; inference can only be made from arrest and prison population statistics


>Again on the urban frontier the ratio is worse: 3 out of every 5 arrests for these crimes were of Negroes

Also I don't get what the point of dispute is since I think we all agree that le "ghetto culture" perceived by whites as being the root cause of Black poverty doesn't exist and that their condition is much more the result of discriminatory, racist, and exploitative policies imposed upon them by white American society whether from Jim Crow laws to lynchings to displacement by "urban renewal" planners to the War on Drugs to predatory finance, etc.

I wanna make a thread about military strategy for revolutionaries
Basically….
How the actual fuck do we defeat the US military and its allies in the 21st Century? I’ve been reading picrel and…holy fuck the empire has a pretty good plan to revolutionize their military actually. Basically the US is planning on making their military even more high tech than it already is, so far they plan to produce
>Drone swarms (already completed)
>High tech soldiers (partially completed)
>An integrated advanced global communications architecture (already completed and constantly updated)
>Fucking super soldiers (WiP)
>Bio-signature surveillance
>Genetically engineered artificial organisms for military purposes (think new animals, new diseases, etc.)
>Integrated space combat systems (WiP)
This is on top of what they already have including the world’s greatest air power, insane naval power, and nukes

What the actual fuck is our strategy, especially if America goes full end seig?
