I'm not even an anarchist, but I frequent anarchist new and social media sites because they actually have something to talk about and aren't just shitting on the mainstream political spectacle in a newspaper or writing articles about a nurse's strike in Tajikistan or Mauritania.

You don't have to tell me things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. I'm not going to fly over to Eswatini like it's the Second Spanish fucking Republic. Tell me about what's happening, and what we can do to make the most of it. I know there are local things happening, more than the occasional disparate strikes and tired boring protests.

I'd be fine with the trots selling newspapers if they were any fucking good.

I don't mind hearing about a nurse's strike in Tajikistan as long as it has good analysis alongside it
Also these articles tend to be written by some unpaid undergrad that's gonna forget everything they read about Karl Marx (secondary sources only) the moment they graduate and go to law school or whatever


They're called news because they give you the new information on events, if you want theory in a digestible form you should read blogs.
>Tell me about what's happening, and what we can do to make the most of it. I know there are local things happening, more than the occasional disparate strikes and tired boring protests.
Do you think they have representatives in every town? And if it's really something important, the people planning and doing it aren't going out to obscure communist newspapers to brag about it. Aren't you in a local org anyways so you can hear about it firsthand?

Reminded me of this foxing_around strip.


The most annoying thing about socialist magazines is that they never do any investigative journalism and don't have reporters on the ground. They just compile what other people have already researched and write their opinion on that. This sometimes makes them extremely boring to read. Most of their stuff I already knew via Twitter and other sources.

I wouldn't call them a news outlet but Cosmonaut Mag is decent.

in Marxism and the National Question ( https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/stalin/works/1913/03a.htm ), Stalin lays down a definition of a nation which includes several features:
>a common language
>a common territory
>a common economic life
>a common psychological make-up
<A nation is a historically constituted, stable community of people, formed on the basis of a common language, territory, economic life, and psychological make-up manifested in a common culture.
these are necessary but not sufficient characteristics of a nation. but are settler colonialist projects like the US even nations? I suspect the answer is no, because of the flexibility of the so-called American "nation". there are nations within the US, such as the Black nation, but the US itself seems to not qualify. what do you think anons?

No, it's a republic, same as how many people in France are fiercely republican but skeptical towards nationalism


The whole idea of the federative state model the founders pushed was that it would be a collection of states, to supposedly combine both the advantages of local republics and an "imperial" overarching state by which they are unified under a centralized government. Hence the "united states". So in a manner of speaking, America is a bunch of mini-nations bound together by the shared requirement to pay federal taxes get recruited into the same army.

Of course neoliberal capitalism has done its work to culturally homogenize and dissolve most local distinctions in its drive to put the entire world under the umbrella of a single global market.

>No, [the US is] a republic [not a nation], same as how many people in France are fiercely republican but skeptical towards nationalism

idk what your definition of "republic" or "nationalism" is, but most people understand it as a belief in nation states.

So as I said before:

I'll start, why is a centralized authority important to achieving communism and why is this seen a positive aspect.

I hate my job and want to do something else entirely. Would it be a betrayal of my values to leave without forming a union? There's also not a lot of class consciousness among my fellow employees either.


>to kill a nation


I wouldn't be to pressed, acting like societal issues come down to the moral choices of individuals is for liberals. That being said you might as well agitate if your alr on your way out the door. I ended up agitating when I knew my pizza hut job would over in some months. we didn't unionize but did still have some collective actions here and there like stealing (a fuckton) of food and a couple slowdowns.

Will developed countries ever experience a revolution ? All leftist peoples armies have been eliminated successfully in most countries by the state and most "leftist" organizations infiltrated by glowie agents… Is it all over ? Could a revolution in new technologies bring about possible revolution in the future ?

This thread is dedicated to our uyghur comrades assuring us the path to energy transition, as stated by the IEA
>The world will almost completely rely on China for the supply of key building blocks for solar panel production through 2025. Based on manufacturing capacity under construction, China’s share of global polysilicon, ingot and wafer production will soon reach almost 95%. Today, China’s Xinjiang province accounts for 40% global polysilicon manufacturing. Moreover, one out of every seven panels produced worldwide is manufactured by a single facility.

As for the news, Europe's current heatwave is described as 'the most extreme event ever seen in European climatology' by Climatologist Maximiliano Herrera (see picrel)

actually prickly pears are really, really good at carbon sequestration and producing biomass as well :D

>Opuntia sequesters carbon using four storage methods: Permanently in calcite crystals, organic acids from its unique desert CAM metabolism, the fibrous skeleton within the plant, and carbohydrates. Such synergy makes this unique cactus a powerhouse of carbon sequestration.

it is something new, we're currently experiencing an array of extreme climate anomalies, the most apparent being ocean surface temperature and the antarctic sea ice anomaly. We're likely at the start of not only an excceptionally powerful el nino, but one that may last an exceptionally long time on rebound from our exceptionally long la nina that was partially triggered from the australian wildfires.

Good job capitalocenebros, the line is going up


Grasslands have lower living biomass, yes, but grasses commit more carbon to the soil through their root systems compared to forests whose soils have far thinner carbon-rich A horizons. It's an Alfisol vs Mollisol problem. Restoring historic grasslands whose A horizons have lost significant carbon content due to tillage and heavy farming is a long-term way to store carbon. There are vast grasslands regions that have been destroyed by modern agriculture (most of the Great Plains, USA, for example) and their restoration is more important than planting forests in places that historically have never been forests.

Discuss anything on Southeast Asian politics. Elections, open orgs, People that should be dead for different reasons running in Malaysia's elections or just random shit. There are still dozens of us… hopefully! South Asia and Oceania posters can come in to discuss their regional politics too!

tbh I do think it is fair and necessary for the government to clamp down on foreign weed since it is unregulated and untaxed. If PT and MFP are doing just that then it is okay for me.

>This was worsened following the pro cannabis party refusal in fixing the laws on insulting the monarchy nor joining the anti military coalition.

Ah, so it is a political tic for tac then? That is a bit more grey area than them just being sellouts tbh.


>Philippines and the Vatican are the only 2 countries in the entire fucking world where divorce is banned
What the fuck. Why are Catholics like this?


Not even the worst Christians in the region. Catholics in Singapore are surprisingly mild.


Well depends on the kind of catholics. The worst we had here were the kulak falangist catholics and the KMT catholics (who were purged if they stayed for being cannibalistic demons). They actually believed that it was their god given missions to eat the hearts and livers of communists.


Imagine bombing so hard in your comedy that your government has to come out and say 'that's kinda cringe ngl.' Her career is taking a nosedive


I swear stand-up comedy need to have some regulation and vetting. This is getting ridiculous.

This ties into the "communism has poor standards of living" polemic.
How do you respond to liberals that bring up the fact that there are zero stories of anyone trying to break out of West Berlin, or if there were then they were a minuscule fraction of the masses attempting to escape East Berlin?

People aren't exactly leaving from one to the other whenever they can, which is a really obvious context. Why do you have such hard time with this?


They didn’t give half of Berlin out of good will, it was because of a preordained agreement


This is undialectical and dogmatic revision


Vast majority of people in East Germany stayed in East Germany


There was a big wall, a sand moat, and guard towers with snipers to shoot you if you tried to escape to West Berlin, of course most people didn't go to West Berlin. What do you think the wall and the guard towers were for?

What's this? Still couldn't accept that the Europeans & the burgers are just nothing more than sluts to China and their allies? You should've embargo & ban trade with China too, moron.
