The John Deere strike and the UAW’s lies
>The UAW is working consciously and systematically to isolate and defeat the strike by more than 10,000 John Deere workers after failing to ram through a concessions contract.
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/10/16/pers-o16.html

It is very clear, growing discontent is developing among almost every section of the workers. While the unions are working to sabotage the struggle, the workers are seeking a way out. Good work John Deere workers.

All of this depends on whether or not capital can really sustain these concessions, and for how long. If we accept the premise that they cannot be sustained forever, and that eventually release valves such as outsourcing will be exhausted, then the solution is to keep pushing for more and more concessions until they become unsustainable. The result will then be increasing desperation on the part of capital to claw these concessions back, leading to an increase in worker militancy and receptiveness to demands that go beyond a better deal within capitalism. Communists need to make sure they are at the forefront of this process of struggle, even limited struggles which simply seek concessions, because this will put us in the best possible position when those concessions become untenable. I don't think your comparison to feudalism is accurate though, since feudalism was a far more stable system which lacked the imperative of constant expansion of profits, meaning it had no point of maximum expansion which could cause its collapse, and no reason to constantly intensify exploitation wherever possible.

Fixed. Well, we kinda saw the preview and real thing is probably going to happen in the next few years, especially Europe and North America.

Can we get a europe general?
I'm kinda curious what's going on in the countries of my fellow europeans, but I feel like having a general for each separate country, with each speaking their own language segregates us further fellow euro brothers and sisters.

So dump news, banter, events, feels, and so on and so on

Even in the darkest hour of reaction, their is one thing that we can be optimistic about. Our class enemies by in large are fucking retarded. Most business owners, and ceos, are basically just small business owners and ceos who just won popularity contests. Most of the people who in managment in coroporations are extremly dull, and completly lack strategic thinking. THye are all living day to day and thinking day to day, about what resturant they want to eat at, or if their kid got good school grades, or what car they want to buy. They aren't strategic thinkers. If you want evidence just go talk to you manager for a little bit, every job I've had they were all extremely dull, many of them simply lacked the mental capabilities to properly do their job, and had assistant managers or other helpers who did all their work for them. If anecdotal evidence isn't enough then just look at MySpace, all of the people their just ignored the signs that their company was dying, and just went about their days until they all got jobs somewhere else. Or look at how oblivious the roman empire was to its own collapse, or gorby ignoring the failure of his reforms, or how nazi germany and imperal japan kept denying that they were loosing WW2. All of these people did what they did because they were retards who didn't know what the effects of their actions were. They weren't visionary thinkers or people who analyzed history. They were just a bunch of stumbling idiots. Their is nothing to suggest that the CEOs of the world are different, and their empire will collapse around them as they through parties in their castles, like all emperors of dying empires in history that have came before them.

People should look at how the John Deer strike was organized, sending in office workers to the plant won’t really allow for a continuation of production of more tractors, but it looks good on paper to the board. The CEO or whoever did that move didn’t do so because they thought it would solve the problem, it was done so that they could sweep everything under the rug. Do that they wouldn’t get hassled from the board, so that they didn’t have to do any late night meeting. That’s probably all it was. Just a high level exuctive that just didn’t want to work. So he made everything look good on paper. These paper tricks are what constitutes most of America’s GDP. Same for probably all countries.

People who are good strategic thinkers and have high I,Qs because by in large they are mostly weirdos with poor social skills. The far-right talks about dysgenics as if it’s a conspiracy but in reality it’s just that the people who are really smart are all weirdos who don’t have good social skills and as a result don’t have the ability to navigate institutions.

Thousands march in El Salvador demanding resignation of President Nayib Bukele
Anger has risen against the 40-year-old president’s rule, which opponents say has become increasingly authoritarian in character. They have raised objections to the adoption of the notoriously volatile bitcoin as legal tender, warning that it will plunge El Salvador’s flagging economy into an even deeper economic crisis.
