I've been interested in the discussions regarding cultural criticism and the role of a united consciousness in Marxist thought.

We all know Marx himself decried the proto-Marxism that began to flourish with the convening of the Internationale. Similarly, we may appropriate this revolutionary emancipatory perspective – not adhering directly to Marx as the figurehead of Marxism, as Marxism itself is a human project first and foremost; something to be contributed to through the actions, work, and thought of the revolutionary class struggle along the course of history. It exists not simply as a materialist view of the world, it is a conscious expansion of self-awareness, of the ability of workers, historically the most exploited class within the capitalist system, to form their own path through history and create something concrete, something revolutionary that will stand out as a node within the fabric of time, but will never, under any circumstances, exist on the premise of perpetually reinforcing the old order. It is revolutionary, not only politically, but in abstraction before it is formed into creation. Thus, revolutionary failure is integral to the revolutionary struggle and cannot simply be pushed aside, but examined and celebrated as a path to further development in itself
>(i.e., the Hatian revolution, the betrayal [and subsequent quelling] of the Sparticist revolutionists in Bavaria, the French revolution of May '68, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the revolutions in Africa during the latter half of the twentieth century, etc).
It cannot be argued that the revolution as a whole has failed. We look to the February Bourgeois Revolution in Imperial Russia and the mass suicides of Communists following the July Days. Beyond the failures of the present lie the potential for class struggle later.
Communism, therefore, is not simply an aesthetic – this is why Stalinism and Juche are inherently opposed to Marxism, and why Socialist Realism (the aesthetic fetishism of Stalinist ideology) is similarly counter-revolutionary. This is because of its sharp constraints of free thought behind conception, and its extreme fetishism of a particular, rigid conception of history. This is why Constructivism was revolutionary, with Russian artists playing an integral role in the revolution, in the molding of early Soviet society alongside Lenin's revolutionary theories – constraints were lessened in ordPost too long.

I have been wondering about the issue of the Berlin Wall lately. It is obviously a very portent symbol in the minds liberals, anti-communists of other sorts, and maybe even normies as a concrete (lol) example of the failure of socialism. One popular saying in my country even goes something like this:
>How can anyone still be a Communist? The Berlin Wall already fell!

I have heard several people here talk loosely that the wall was an anti-fascist barrier and that its building was justified but since i never saw that argument expanded upon so i was wondering if we could have a thread about it. And also.

>What did the fall of the Berlin Wall actually symbolize?

The Warsaw Pact could have mobilized enough forces in the GDR to spook the USA. Use the fact that US observers were in the GDR under the treaties Stalin signed which meant the Warsaw Pact could really flex hard especially if Khrushchev didn't cancel the heavy tank program and instead retool the heavy tank program to flex in the GDR (make tanks that look scary even if not practical). Make it so those observers constantly shat themselves when they saw the Warsaw Pact forces in the GDR and told the Pentagon that war with the Warsaw Pact would be suicidal.

Nukes uygha. the USA had nuclear mines ready to nuke Europe at the hint of the Fulda gap being threatened.
>Khrushchev didn't cancel the heavy tank program
See >>>/hobby/20083 for the IS-7 and th T-10M and IS-3, despite their armor and gun (the latter having proven itself in Egypt) remained sitting ducks for airstrikes and by the mid 1950s remained back up forces to T-55 and T-62 forces.
Object 279 on the other hand was a good option but came too late.

West Berlin starts encircled, meaning the Warsaw Pact doesn't have push into the Fulda gap, it just siege West Berlin and turtle.
>for the IS-7 and th T-10M and IS-3, despite their armor and gun (the latter having proven itself in Egypt) remained sitting ducks for airstrikes and by the mid 1950s remained back up forces to T-55 and T-62 forces.
Not a problem for just going up against West Berlin as the city itself will provide them enough cover and the battlefield is small enough to make it suicidal for NATO power to fly over the city by ringing Berlin with SAMs and radar.

Anyone here a part of the DSA (or any other political party?) Is it worth joining up? What do you guys do? Is there any community, any actual communists? There's no real communist party in my area so it would be the DSA or nothing for me.

Which country is the most latest stage of capitalism so far? USA? Dubai? Japan/South Korea? Or a European country?

IMO East asian countries are the most late stage version of capitalism because they are basically LARPing 1980s urban burgerland aesthetic but in an extremely exaggerated, megastructure type way. It's like they took way late 20th century America did and emulated it uncritically but BIGGER.

How can we compare (and contrast) Taiwanese liberation to other similar events like what happened in:
>Tibet (1950)

>Golan Heights (1967)
>Timor (1975)
>Kuwait (1990)
>Crimea (2014)

calling what happened with golan and east timor "liberation" is a tad naive, if anything, it was occupation by a foreign party. taiwan is both historically and culturally part of China
