Yeah yeah I get it, renegade, WW1 etc.
The fact is, despite his later opportunism, his theorical texts stays immensly important. He was the writer of the Erfurt Programme that solidified marxism inside the SPD. Strategically, he always fight both against left and right deviationism. Without Kautsky, there would be no Lenin. Even if tactically disimilar to him, the latter was on the same page philosophically, as a principled marxist, always a defender of the classical theory of Marx-Engels, and defender of the programmatic content of communism.
So, why such hatred and ignorance against this guy ? Is it only the fact Lenin attacked him AFTER WW1, and despite the fact he lauded his works "when he was a marxist" ? Is it the slanders against him that we can find in the neo-hegelian marxists such as Korsch and Lukacs ? Or is it simply because it's "common-sense" leftism ?

Three month strike set to end at Sibanye as miners back deal
South African precious metals miner Sibanye Stillwater (SSWJ.J) said on Friday that trade unions leading a strike at its gold operations had a mandate from their members to accept a three-year wage deal. Members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union have been on strike at Sibanye's gold operations since March 9. read more

Lack of water in Puerto Rico town sparks federal lawsuit
Puerto Rico’s water and sewer company was hit by a federal lawsuit on Thursday demanding that it provide services to thousands of residents who lack potable water on a daily basis. The class-action lawsuit was filed by Carmen Maldonado, mayor of the northern town of Morovis, who requested that a judge issue an injunction to force Puerto Rico’s Aqueducts and Sewer Authority to provide immediate service to residents in need.

Drought-stricken US warned of looming 'dead pool'
While the dead bodies are fuelling talk about Las Vegas' mob past, water experts warn of even more worrisome consequences. If the lake keeps receding, it would reach what's known as "dead pool" - a level so low the Hoover Dam would no longer be able to produce hydropower or deliver water downstream. Californians have been told to conserve water at home or risk mandated water restrictions as a severe drought on the West Coast is expected to get worse during the summer months.

Vaccine Equity Coverage Underplays Barrier of Patents
While Western countries have largely lifted Covid restrictions and are attempting to put the pandemic behind them, countries in the Global South, where vaccines and treatments are still often hard to come by (e.g., just 11% of the African continent has been vaccinated against Covid-19), have no such privilege. But despite US media’s occasionally stated concern with vaccine equity, the role of pharmaceutical companies in perpetuating this gap is rarely mentioned. Covax—the vaccine alliance of non-governmental organizations—has established itself as a mainstay of global vaccination efforts. Wealthy nations that have contributed to this charity have touted it as the singular solution to vaccine inequity worldwide. Vaccinating populations that lack protections against Covid-19 saves lives in those countries and deters the emergence of new variants.

A HISTORY OF NAKED IMPERIALISM CONTINUES AS BIDEN APPROVES SOMALIA REDEPLOYMEN
Almost as soon as the administration of President Joseph Biden announced a redeployment of US Special Operations Forces to Somalia on May 16, the Western media began to spin the intervention. As the BBC framed it, Biden’s deployment would “support the fight against militant group al-Shabab” (sic). The intervention coincides with the re-election of former Somalian President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who governed between 2012 and ‘17. Similarly, the New York Times (NYT) reported that “Biden has approved a Pentagon request for standing authority to target about a dozen suspected leaders of Al Shabab, the Somali terrorist group that is affiliated with Al Qaeda.” But are these motives true? Does Washington really want merely to defeat al-Shabab? Is al-Shabab actually linked to al-Qaeda and, if so, to what degree? As usual, the mainstream state-corporate media reportage is missing context and reference to international law. As we shall see, the context behind the US redeployment is naked imperialism using counterterrorism as the latest in a long line of excuses to interfere in the politics of the strategically-significant country on the Horn of Africa.

Because hypothetically your local representative will support your interests and values. This actually works sometimes in the UK. They have a tradition of caucus rebels that survives. In Canada the party whip is all powerful and is expected to be by the media and therefore by the public. It's actually perceived as a scandal and serious problem whenever the party whip ISN'T controlling the MPs/MPPs/MLAs with an iron grip. It's easy enough for traditions that our form of government relies on to function properly to just stop being followed.

Despite the fact that the "local" aspect of our local representative is reduced to the occasional petition laid before Parliament and promptly ignored, and constituency office as Service Canada escalation centre, that hypothetical local good gets trotted out whenever FPTP is being discussed.

I'm not sure that replacing FPTP with a proportional system would be that much better either. Is a system of government devised in the 1200s really appropriate in a world with the cheap and available communication of the internet? Another party or two might become viable but most Canadians' relationship with their own governance would still be limited to a single vote every four years. It's not like the days of community organization building the CCF.

I used to think that burgerstan and Brazil were violent shitholes due to the amount of people that had guns but now that I’m older I’m realizing that most them legitimately don’t know how to use guns in the first place.

Like seriously search up any image of like a fucking redditor or on those weird reality shows they like so much and your gonna notice how some of them keep an irresponsible amount of guns that they definitely aren’t spending the hours of repairing, cleaning and using for hunting or defence on otherwise at most they’d only have 2. It’s all props and by the time they actually have to use guns you’ll notice there about as handy with a rifle as I am with a car on the road

There slow, don’t know what they’re doing and likely are gonna break the tool they need by the time they stop using it since they don’t know how to maintain or repair it. And this does affect violence as that many untrained owners is obviously gonna cause emotional immaturity towards gun usage that inevitably ends most commonly with the user shooting themselves or something that wasn’t their target.

This, it makes sure that every able-bodied adult man has had the experience of undergoing military training, learning to shoot and work in a squad, and creates a base of reserves that can easily be mobilized if a war happens.
It also means gangs and organized crime can draw upon those same skillsets but that generally is mostly a problem once the socialist state collapses.
If anything, volunteer militaries protect the bourgeois state from the workers by ensuring the workers are either skinny soyboys only fit to work a counter at Starbucks, or obese diabetics only fit to consume. It gets so bad that the generals have to tell the civ government they literally can't meet defense requirements because so much of the population is unfit. That's why school lunches and mandatory polio vaccination became a thing in the US, many American farm kids were essentially cripples in the 1930s due to poverty-related reasons.

The Stalinist Soviet Union (all due respect to stalin because i love him) became a degenerated worker's state ruled by aging bureaucrats who eventually destroyed the USSR with the yeltsin coup, though brezhnev defunded OGAS in the interest of protecting bureaucrats' jobs, and prohibition of alcohol created a black market which encouraged trading outside of the state apparatus (cockshott's analysis). You can't even deny this. The best system of Socialism would be a decentralized confederate government which elects a governor for each province to serve on a federal council, swiss style, as well as the promotion of militia groups to replace cops and the professional military in order to prevent counter-revolution from taking hold without at least some resistance. Also revolution should be spread worldwide, not confined into the national space. This is why all dying and elderly people should be hooked up to a collective hivemind consciousness to act as the cybernetic economic planning system utilizing the human brain as the storage for information downloaded from and uploaded to the cloud.

Your shitty opinion has been discarded. "Utopian" socialism was not actually socialism. Any socialism that does not set as a goal the abolition of private property cannot in any meaningful sense be described as "socialist".
>Liberals aren't that bad at state building
They are. Like >>1001793 pointed out, the only reason liberalism ever achieved hegemony was by conceding multiple times to left wing and socialist forces in terms of welfare state programs. Now that the communist threat is gone everything is being taken off the table. Prices of food, education, housing, insurance, transportation, and everything is going up while wages have stagnated. I agree that a socialist revolution is unlikely however you mistook that as me expecting liberalism to continue. It's not. Everything is collapsing before our eyes.

Paternalistic Conservatism ala Metternich and the rest will always be closer to socialism than liberalism. This is irrefutable I'm not even going to bother getting into it because it's obvious you do no research judging by how you threw out Simon as an example of someone who enjoyed the French Revolution when you didn't even realize he was persecuted by it.
