In Guerrilla Warfare (La Guerra de Guerrillas), Guevara did not count on a Leninist insurrection led by the proletariat as had happened during the 1917 October Revolution, but on popular uprisings which would gain strength in rural areas and would overthrow the regime. The vanguard guerrilla was supposed to bolster the population's morale, not to take control of the state apparatus itself and this overthrow would occur without any external or foreign help. According to him, guerrillas were to be supported by conventional armed forces:

>It is well established that guerrilla warfare constitutes one of the phases of war; this phase can not, on its own, lead to victory.


What does /leftypol/ think of foco theory? is it adventurism? is it terrorism? Why did it succeed in Cuba and fail in the other countries Che tried it in?

Agree, and thanks for emphasis. There is much to be learned, such as what strategies and tactics are compatible with which material conditions, and which are incompatible with which other material conditions. The need still remains for the revolutionary to combine and coordinate what does work in the unique way that fits that part of the current context they are working on.

>>102181
Not necessarily, They kill wrong people all the time and They still haven't suffered serious repercussions. Much depends on what else you have that credibly prevents more needless death, such as, a solid, fact-based narrative that renders the insurgent security forces blameless (our rules of engagement were announced and posted, the victim failed to follow them for their own reasons), or a way to get/keep next-of-kin onside and establishment forces at bay (changes to RoE, acknowledgment of the victim's errors, fundraising to cover lost income, personal apologies from whoever was/is in charge, etc).

Marxist-Leninists are literally reactionaries with their vanguards and personality cults that lead into actual dictatorships. An absolute monarchy with a planned economy like in North Korea is not socialism and still less communism. Its feudalism with factories.

Literally idpol. All political parties in bourgeois politics are inherently bourgeios. To believe that a system designed for capture and control can simply be turned to the action of emancipation is a big utopian scam.
>willing to enter the world of politics
Why, when bourgeois politics corrupts every initiative it touches? If the bourgs let you have a party, it will be because it and you are serving porky's interests, and who gives a fuck whose idpol brand is on the nomenklatura that sits in global authority implementing the austerities of world civilization (as if you would be allowed to do otherwise)? Your entire strategy depends on the acquiescence of international capital and that depends on your service to international capital. The same thing is happening right now with wokeism, and you have absolutely no credible assurance to offer that you won't turn on the whole people in the time-proven way.
Given all that, why should you even be allowed to exist?

When one sees how much the internet today has been stripped of any of its revolutionary potential and just made into a gigantic surveillance and propaganda machine one has to wonder if capitalism can really even function properly with novel civilization-changing technologies like the internet. Of course we know that the capitalist mode of production can't exist without constantly revolutionizing the means of production and technology and thus reshaping society as a whole in a fundamentally different way, but this time it feels like capitalism has hit a roadblock with this process and gave rise to a technology that could potentially be a threat to the very existence of the system, and thus it had to strip it of any meaningful difference between it and older communication technologies to where the internet has become just a faster TV, radio and telephone with higher rates of surveillance added on top.

So what do you think? Will this process still continue uninhibited in the future and the internet will just become just one massive intellectual prison for all of humanity or could this be the start of a new process where the very productive forces of society don't even function properly with capitalism?

You can't just download and install socialism, that was idealist, but it hasn't lost revolutionary potential, a socialist state could use it for cybernetics. Ok they have to take out the security holes first.
>but this time it feels like capitalism has hit a roadblock with this process and gave rise to a technology that could potentially be a threat to the very existence of the system, and thus it had to strip it of any meaningful difference between it and older communication technologies.
In Marxist terms capitalism has become a fetter on the means of production and by downgrading the internet it becomes a less competitive economic system. The open internet was less dangerous to capitalism than what the tech-bourgeoisie is doing now. On the open internet the capitalist system was very diffuse and could not be attacked, the tech bourgeoisie is moving the internet to concentrated data centers that are vulnerable.
>So what do you think? Will this process still continue uninhibited in the future and the internet will just become just one massive intellectual prison for all of humanity.
My prediction is a brain prison in the near future, but it will get better. The feudal lords and the clergy couldn't stop the enlightenment and the industrial revolution, but they did hold it back.
>could this be the start of a new process where the very productive forces of society don't even function properly with capitalism?
You mean information isn't a real commodity because it has to be sold above exchange value, because cost of reproduction is nothing ? That is a contradiction that makes it inefficient but capitalism dies because of the falling rate of profit, not because of technology.

I don't know for certain if Biden will pass the PRO Act, but the fact that House Democrats passed it makes it seem possible. The main problem will likely be the Senate, as Democrats have only 50/100 seats (51/101 if Kamala votes) in it.

McDonald’s collects ‘strategic intelligence’ on workers advocating for a $15 minimum wage, including ‘how and where will FF$15 attack the brand.’

The fast food giant's secretive intelligence unit has monitored its own workers’ activities with the movement, which seeks to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour, including by using social media monitoring tools, according to two sources who worked at McDonald's who had direct knowledge of the surveillance and leaked documents that explain the surveillance strategy and tactics. A team of intelligence analysts in the Chicago and London offices keep an eye on the activities of Fight for $15 labor organizers across the world, figure out which McDonald's workers are active in the movement, and who they are working with to organize strikes, protests, or attempt to form unions.

"The idea was to figure out their strategy, counter it, and find out where the key players are, and who they know"

>except Cuba, for some reason libs are pretty sympathetic to them
I think it's because academics who were sympathetic to the Soviet Union were purged so there's a basic problem with sourcing for decades being controlled by CIA "area studies" programs. The research was being done to figure out how to destroy them, basically. With Cuba there were still sympathetic academics doing research and writing books, and I think the West Europeans and Canadians were relatively friendly to Cuba, like Pierre Trudeau, and wanting to put some distance between themselves and the U.S. government.

I remember going to Canada one time as a kid and seeing a Cubana airlines booth in the airport terminal. There's no "wall" there and I remember being surprised because I grew up with the Burger-brained impression that Cuba existed in an alternative universe or something. And liberals might have friends in other countries who are just liberals like them but look at U.S. policy toward Cuba as completely irrational.

On March 1, 1881, in St. Petersburg, with a single wave of a white handkerchief, Sophia Perovskaya completed a long-term hunt for Emperor Alexander II. It seemed that on this day, the luck again turned against the people's Will, when the tsar's carriage drove past the mined Malaya Sadovaya, where the bombers were waiting for it. In order to get to the tsar, Narodnaya Volya mined an entire street (and before that, the bridge and the railway). The bombers decide not to give up. And while the tsar was drinking the last tea of his life, four young people were choosing a suitable place on the embankment of the Catherine Canal. On this day, with the light hand of Perovskaya, there was one less tyrant in Europe.

One can treat this event differently, but the fact remains that for the first time in the history of Russia, the Russian tsar was dismissed by the direct will of the people. This is how direct democracy works. Well, as for the methods that the Narodovoltsy chose for themselves, here is their own attitude to terror:

Terror is a terrible thing, there is only one thing worse than terror: it is to endure violence without a murmur

watched this today and found it very interesting as it was a very honest dive into the lives of alot of the image board types that make up the vast numbers of pol/ and othe reactionary Mosque shooter types and one thing i was distinctly able to notice throughout was how these young men spoke so strongly of an alienation they felt both from their peers and from any sort of greater meaning in their lives and i think its extremely interesting that alot of the Alt right and groyper types has been able to pick up these sorts at least in the first few years instead of them actually identifying with has created these unfair outcomes in capitalism and then wanting to change it they instead get pulled into this self loathing restarted misery hole of posting online and wanting to die.
