-Your boss and Corporate America are screwing you. Your politicians are taking legal bribes and letting it happen.

-Private ownership over the means of production and authoritarian workplaces owned by the top 10% (aka Capitalism) are exploiting and over working you.

-Capitalism, Corporations, Billionaires as well as our consumerist and fossil fuel addicted economies are killing life in our country and around the world.

-We spend money on weapons of death and destruction rather than advancing humanity and pursuing sustainability.

-Your tax dollars are funding ruthless blood thirsty imperialism and genocide.

-The only way to overcome the toxic status quo is to revolt. That means strikes and committing mass acts of civil disobedience.

We don’t have much time. Either revolution happens within the next 15 years or global warming will fuck the whole planet. Which may also lead to wars and nuclear armaggedon. START THE REVOLUTION NOW

I am damned, all wicked..
I've just watched this video in which the creator proclaims that the soviets weren't the basis of 'Soviet' Union and it is quite convincing..

Was our 'Soviet' Union a big retreat from the way of revolution in the first moment when the Menshevik/SR dominated Soviets were forcefully dismantled, as locally organized systems of planning of those regions would have fallen into instability… Which eventually ends the journey with the implementation of the NEP. I know that Martov and Lenin were very close friends who both were Marxists and both the left SR's and Mensheviks supported co-operation with the Bolsheviks, then why the Bolsheviks had to put an end to the Soviet power?

The Soviets were absent from their dismantling to the end of the USSR. ( at least this is what the video proclaims with its sources )
Actually, I can't judge Lenin or someone else if they saw the soviet elections as obstacles standing in the way of exerting their desired will. But, the bolsheviks were the first ones who divided the land into Soviets which were supposed to be down-to-top planning and feedback system. Then the NEP markets and the Gosplan bureucracy took their function.

Can anybody explain the true reasons behind why the wall was built and provide some resources about it? To my understanding, the Soviets actually gave West Berlin over to the US in an act of good faith since they were both allies. America proceeds to use it as a launching point for espionage and terrorist attacks after the second world war. The Soviets demand that the US gives West Berlin back, and the US refuses, so rather than initiating world war 3, the soviets built the berlin wall.

Building the wall was a huge fuck up in my opinion. I understand the logic, minimising western influence and stopping brain drain etc, but it still was an extremely bad look for the eastern bloc.

This might be one of the advantages of capitalism, it forces you to do things indirectly, responsibility is shifted on the individuals. And the system is made to seem “natural” and apolitical.

It was built for two main reasons. First was security. The lax border was allowing too many Amerikkkan spies into the Communist sphere. The border was also kindling for war as it was, since Western and Soviet tanks were staring each other down all the time. The second reason was to stop academics, high skilled workers and petit bourgeois leaving the country. These groups were targetted by the Amerikkkan colony and were promised higher paying jobs. So basically brain drain.

This is a tactical brainstorm thread, so stay loose and have a good time.

I want to discuss what I'm ignorantly calling targeted economic sabotage of citizens; when an organized labour movement attacks an occupying force economically. When I say 'occupying force', I mean a wide range of class enemies, including police and other proletarian class traitors, as well as politicians.
The liberal capitalist system replaces the commons with the private. While this is obviously horrific and tragic, it can also be weaponized by workers through collective actions like strikes. Sufficiently organized workers (and I'm aware most of us aren't in societies this advanced yet) can perform powerful and targeted actions, like French CGT threatening to shut off power to politicians houses in 2023. Taken to a theoretical level, an industry could refuse service to any police and other servants of the ruling class, although this is obviously complicated when discrimination like this is probably illegal (technically) and police have legitimate use of violence, alongside powerful illegitimate use of violence. That said, this is situational - Cheran is an example of a town which successfully overthrew and exiled their former police force and politicians, so it's not inherently a pipe dream to combat state police.
Do you know of case studies where targeted economic sabotage of citizens has been tried? Do you believe it's feasible in any large scale, akin to a general strike specifically against targets?

Egypt threatens to suspend peace treaty with Israel if its forces move into Rafah
EGYPT could suspend its peace treaty with Israel if Israeli forces are sent into the densely populated town of Rafah on the Gaza Strip’s southern border, two Egyptian officials and the European Union’s foreign policy chief said today. … The Egyptian officials also warned that fighting there could force the closure of the besieged territory’s main route for deliveries of food aid and medical supplies.

The European Communist Action stands by the side of the struggling farmers in Europe
The mass farmers’ protests that are taking place in many European countries, such as Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Greece, prove that the policies followed by the EU and the anti-popular governments, such as the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the “green” transition, have caused acute problems of economic survival for farmers and stockbreeders. Rural incomes have been hit by the huge increase in production costs, which are high to ensure the monopoly superprofits of the business groups, such as those in the energy sector, while the burdens of the imperialist war in Ukraine are being shifted onto the popular strata. Big traders, big agri-business and finance, making superprofits due to CAP market and trade rules, plunder toiling farmers and force them to sell their products at very low prices.Moreover, due to capital concentration and the consequent restructuring, the survival of toiling farmers is called into question.

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Helicopter Ride
That Sebastián Piñera should die in a helicopter is a case of unsurpassable poetic justice. “Free helicopter rides” has long been a meme among fascists inspired by the extrajudicial murders of leftists that the Argentine and Chilean governments carried out. The personal helicopter pilot of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet openly admitted that he repeatedly murdered prisoners by throwing them into the ocean from his helicopter. As head of state, Piñera inherited and perpetuated Pinochet’s legacy, forcing capitalism on the Chilean population despite brave and widespread resistance. This is not the first time that we have outlived our oppressors—and it will not be the last. Below, we share a statement from our dear comrades in Chile on this historic occasion.

<“Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”

This quote, often put forward by reactionaries, is actually true, but with heavy asterisks.

>Hard times create strong men.

>Strong men create good times.
This is true. But not of slave owning planters like George Washington, but of their slaves. Not of imperial core soldiers, but of the people they bomb and radicalize.
>Good times create weak men.
>Weak men create hard times.”
This is also true. Not of the leftists ruining society with their lack of patriotism, but of the decadent ruling classes in the imperial core, maintaining an unfair hegemony and living a lifestyle characterized by a total lack of adversity, where they are even free to ignore contrary opinions.

As Neo-Nazi ‘Active Club’ Grows, Charges Against Its Founder Dismissed
Central District of California — Highlighting the growth of Active Club, a prominent global violent neo-nazi group with nearly 50 chapters in the United States, more than 100 new symbols for the group have been added to the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism’s (GPAHE) database. Evolving from what was once the alt-right Rise Above Movement (RAM), Active Club has been especially active in its targeted recruitment of mostly young white men online. Both RAM and Active Club were created by Robert Rundo, a self-professed fascist and white nationalist who promotes antisemitic tropes. Rundo was a fugitive from 2018 until 2023 for charges stemming from participating “in a series of violent attacks at political rallies in 2017, including events in Huntington Beach, Berkeley, and San Bernardino,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney after Rundo’s arrest. Four other members of RAM were charged in a separate indictment for their participation in the violent events in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
