Science is science even if the guy who developed it liked to watch naked midgets solve equations on a blackboard. It’s important not to conflate the character of the man with the character of the science. If it’s bullshit then it should be disprovable (like Nick Land’s accelerationist utopia Haiti).

The struggle between the people and the hatred amongst them is being nurtured by very specific interested parties. It is a small, rootless, international clique that is turning the people against each other, that does not want them to have peace. It is the people who are at home both nowhere and everywhere, who do not have anywhere a soil on which they have grown up, but who live in Berlin today, in Brussels tomorrow, Paris the day after that, and then again in Prague or Vienna or London, and who feel at home everywhere. They are the only ones who can be addressed as international elements, because they conduct their business everywhere, but the people cannot follow them. The people are bounded to their soil, bounded to its fatherland, bounded to the possibilities of life that the state, the nation, offers.

According to Lenin the state exists to bolster and sustain class society. Worker's states are conceptualised as temporary functions, necessary to coordinate the infrastructure for a stateless society, organize the suppression of counterrevolutionary elements, complete the liquidation of the bourgeoisie, and fulfill the transfer of capital from private to public control.

Comrades, what is your most degenerate Google search in connection with socialism?

I believe that a degree of degeneration is part and parcel of being human and that it should be embraced, perhaps as a socio-psychological antithesis that helps us reach proletarian purity

Biden sent private message to Tehran amid airstrikes: ‘We’re well-prepared’
His comments came after a fresh round of airstrikes hit a Houthi radar facility, raising further fears of a wider regional conflict. This came amid concerns about the world economy as well as security and civilian safety, and further backlash in the US from progressives in the Democratic party who have decried Biden’s executive decision to launch strikes on Yemen without seeking the backing of Congress.

For Israel's religious right, Gaza is a war of conquest
In the past week, comments from Israeli lawmakers have called into question whether Israel’s religious right, or even the entire government, views its war on Gaza not only as one of revenge but also of conquest. As 2024 began, Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir told reporters and members of his Jewish Power Party that the war presents an “opportunity to concentrate on encouraging the migration of the residents of Gaza”. He added: “We cannot withdraw from any territory we are in in the Gaza Strip. Not only do I not rule out Jewish settlement there, I believe it is also an important thing.” Ben Gvir repeated this call, writing on the social media platform X that “the migration of hundreds of thousands from Gaza will allow the residents of the enclave to return home and live in security,” referencing the return of Israeli settlers to Gaza, who were evacuated in 2005.

A Three-Way Split in Marx21 — Which Way Forward for the Revolutionary Left in Germany?
Germany’s Left Party, Die Linke, is in the throes of a terminal crisis, after Sahra Wagenknecht and her supporters split off to form a new party. Wagenknecht is infamous for her social chauvinism: her scapegoating of immigrants, and her chasing of right-wing agenda points like vaccine skepticism. Yet as odious as her views are, Die Linke is in some ways worse: When announcing the split, Wagenknecht referred briefly to Gaza as an “open-air prison.” Dietmar Bartsch, Die Linke’s main speaker, responded by expressing his support for Israel. In other words, the split in The Left is between two-right-wing factions. For more than 15 years, the majority of Trotskyists in Germany have adapted to Die Linke. The party’s crisis has thrown all the groups attempting to ride on its coattails into crisis as well. The post-Trotskyist network Marx21 has now split into three separate groups. As we wrote half a year ago, this split was a result of years of adaptation to different reformist bureaucracies. Over the years, many members of Marx21 got cushy jobs in a government party. The most corrupt of them now run a for-profit company selling services to the trade union bureaucracy. FollowingPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think in 10-20 years most leftists will be ultra-left and it will be the dominant strain of leftism and i think that's a good thing. we are kind of headed that way even if genZedong is very visible.

i have the feeling anarchism has never been as weak in my lifetime as it has now, classic ML is doing alright but "tankies" are seen very badly. ultra-left is pretty much the future

Just for the record, I'm not making that up. Fritz Wolffheim and Heinrich Laufenberg, the two left wingers who founded the nazbol faction of the KPD and gave rise to National Bolshevism, were part of the German communist left. They were also in the KAPD (German leftcom party). They even appear on leftcom histories: https://www.marxists.org/subject/germany-1918-23/dauve-authier/index.htm

I became an anarchist a few months ago, and it has changed my life. It saddens me, however, that the movement is very weakened, almost dead. Compared to state socialism, it is much less popular. Most people cant imagine a world without government and borders. The left in general, and anarchists in particular, have been losing the fight on the education front. Another problem is that since the 70s an individualistic trend was born, what Bookchin called "lifestyle anarchists", anarchism becoming a fashion, losing its social component. This is known as "post-left anarchism".

Fellow anarchists, what can we do to revive anarchism from its slumber? More than ever it is needed.

How do you become less racist as a communist?

I've been a communist most of my life, but I drank the far-right koolaid during the Trump era when English-speaking imageboards became a cesspool of fascism, and I've never really managed to get myself to fully reject the racism that I picked up back then.

Are there any Marxist thinkers that deal with this topic, or any interesting intellectuals to read that help unlearn this racism?

Hello comrades,
I've been reflecting on a poignant scene from the film "Pozegnanie Jesieni" ("Farewell to Autumn"), which, in many ways, encapsulates a personal dilemma I've been grappling with. In the film's climax, a Polish character attempts to recite Pushkin to avoid execution by a Russian communist. This scene, though fictional, resonates deeply with my experience as a Pole contemplating the broader spectrum of communist ideology.

I hold a strong belief in many of the principles of communism, particularly its vision for equality and social justice. However, as a Polish individual, I can't help but feel a sense of otherness within this framework, primarily due to the cultural and linguistic ties that bind communism to Russian nationalism. This isn't just theoretical for me; it's been a tangible part of my experiences.

In my professional life, I once worked in a predominantly Belarusian company. There, I often felt isolated during conversations conducted in their native language, struggling to derive meaning as an outsider. Similarly, I recall an evening in Krakow, my own country, where I was approached by Ukrainians who assumed I would speak Russian. While these are small instances, they collectively paint a picture of my apprehension.

My concern is this: In the grand vision of an international communist movement, where do individuals like me, with distinctly non-Russian cultural and linguistic backgrounds, fit in? The Russian language and culture have historically been a significant part of communist discourse. It's an undeniable reality that Russians, Belarusians, and Ukrainians share closer cultural and linguistic bonds, which naturally could lead to a sense of exclusion for others.

How do we, as advocates for a globally inclusive communist future, address these cultural and linguistic disparities? My fear is not of the ideology itself but of the potential cultural hegemony that could inadvertently emerge, sidelining non-Russian speakers and, by extension, their cultural identities.

I pose these thoughts not as a criticism of the movement but as a call for introspection on how we can genuinely cultivate an inclusive internationalist approach. How do we ensure that the cultural diversity of all comrades is respected and valued equally in our shared struggle? I am a Polish man proud of my heritage, yet I stand in solidarity with the global proletariat. But in this solidarity, I seek assurance that my idPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm in the U.S. so my only experience with this has really been with the occasional person whose interest in communism is bound up in being a Russiaboo, basically. There are some guys you'll eventually meet who are like weebs for Russia really, and call themselves communist, but also be Vladimir Putin fans at the same time. They tend be "alienated" types. Then they'll convert to the Orthodox Church or something. It's kind of like being a Star Trek fan.
