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

Dunno, I guess a Marxist would critique this theory by pointing out how the US actually industrialized and that this also happened under huge governmental intervention and planning, creating a false dichotomy.


so can it be changed to this idea that the borg of non comprador countries create a developmental state to facilitate industrial or other development for their own interests and desires
meanwhile in socialists states, the proles and the vanguard create the development state for the interests of the prole, vanguard and etc


What's that Russian video sharing website where you can find plenty of tv shows, films and series both from contemporary Russia and the Soviet era?

A huge faggot that at some point got tired with the marxist scene, came up with some supposed gotcha about some point of Marx theory he found to be "unscientific", so he could switch to Craxi's socialist party at the height of its influence (the 80s) and then switch to Berlusconi's pimps and whores party after 1994. He died suddenly of a heart attack in 2001 or something while he was at a spa.

Pakistani court grants Imran Khan protection from arrest
Since November, Mr Khan has avoided appearances before courts in Islamabad in at least three cases, including a corruption charge, when he was wounded in a gun attack at a protest rally in the eastern Punjab province. Mr Khan, who denies all charges against him, says his life is in danger and that’s why he is seeking bail to avoid appearances before judges in multiple cases. The former prime minister claims that he is being victimised by the government of his successor, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

India opposition leader loses his Parliament seat after being convicted of defamation
Key Indian opposition leader Rahul Gandhi has lost his parliamentary seat after a court found him guilty of defamation over his remarks about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's surname and he was disqualified from the lawmaking body, a parliamentary statement said on Friday. Gandhi, who represented a constituency in southern Kerala state as a member of the Congress party, was disqualified from his membership in the lower house of Parliament from March 23, the date of his conviction, the statement said.

Chad says it has nationalised all assets owned by Exxon Mobil
Chad has nationalised all the assets and rights, including hydrocarbon permits and exploration and production authorisations, that belonged to a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil, the West African nation’s energy and hydrocarbons ministry said in a statement on Thursday. Exxon Mobil said in December 2022 that it had closed the sale of its operations in Chad and Cameroon to London-listed Savannah Energy in a $407m deal, but the Chadian government contested the agreement, saying the final terms were different from what had been presented to it.

Los Angeles schools to reopen after three-day workers' strike

Disney union announces $18 minimum wage in new agreement proposal with company
The union, which represents about 45,000 Disney workers, has been pushing for an $18 minimum wage for employees amid inflation and rising costs of living, union leaders announced. In February, the company reached out to the union with a contract offer that included $20 per hour wage for full-time, non-tipped STCU roles and a nearly 10% average pay increase within the first year.

In Blow to Koch and Exxon, Federal Judges Say Minnesota Climate Suit Belongs in State Court
Minnesota on Thursday scored a significant procedural win in a lawsuit seeking to hold Big Oil accountable for lying to consumers about the dangers of burning fossil fuels and thus worsening the deadly climate crisis. In a unanimous ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit agreed with a lower court that the state's climate fraud lawsuit against the American Petroleum Institute, ExxonMobil, and Koch Industries can proceed in state court, where it was filed.

Build the movement to oppose AUKUS nuclear submarines
Anthony Albanese’s March 13 AUKUS announcement about how Australia would be acquiring nuclear-powered submarines is a massive escalation of militarism in the Asia-Pacific region and undermines peace in the world. Over the next three decades Labor and the Coalition have committed to buying, building, operating and maintaining a fleet of more than eight nuclear powered submarines. It amounts to the single biggest investment in Australia’s “defence” capacity since colonisation. The AUKUS program also represents an extraordinary waste of public money. The program will exceed $368 billion — more than doubling the $170 billion projected cost a week ago — with working people expected to contribute more than $3 billion over the first three years. To do this when we face the fight of our lives to stop runaway global warming and a growing cost-of-living crisis displays utter contempt for ordinary working people. Albanese’s enthusiasm to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States means that every part of the federal budget is under threat. Opposition leader Peter Dutton’s offer to negotiate budgets cuts, including to the National Disability Insurance Scheme, to pay for the submarines was probably support Albanese could have done without, as it was made very clear who will be paying.

1. U.S. President Joe Biden and his NATO counterparts will hold their next scheduled summit in Lithuania, Vilnius, on July 11-12, 2023.

2. NATO’s secretary general Jens Stoltenberg said he wanted NATO members to agree that spending 2% of GDP on defence as a minimum at the alliance’s next summit.

PDF & pic related are my calculations concerning the strain this new policy will have on all member countries and aspirants using the latest World Bank data on $GDP, and %GDP spending on military, education, and healthcare. The total increase in military budget by my estimation will be $50.39 billion worldwide. This increase in state spending will bring the worst outcomes for Iceland, Luxemburg, Bulgaria, Albania, and North Macedonia, while being significantly detrimental to Italy, Hungary, and Georgia (if accepted as member), and bring some strain to the economies of Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Slovakia.

Which means that 13-14 countries are about to get worse economically, which roughly means 277 million people living worse off due to the needs of NATO's leading superpower, the USA.

3. What to do?
If you are one of these 277 million people, recognize what this increase in military spending will inevitably mean for you and your countrymen: austerity and a decrease in essential state spending (infrastructure, healthcare, education, etc.). Even if you are not a member of any political organization, please send this information to your preferred political groups. All I'm asking is a single e-mail.

If you are a member of other NATO countries not really affected by this proposed change, you must oppose continent-wide austerity any way, but surely you must be against NATO either way. You can organize protests, send e-mails too.

>a few hundred nuclear warheads blanketing Western Europe and the United States will dampen their spirits
Probably do more than that.

The U.K. is, that's true. The E.U. is expected to achieve negative growth this year?

Russia seems to be handling the sanctions well, but the war is coming with costs. For one, arms sales. Russian military equipment has performed worse than many expected. There are more competitors on the world market these days. Look at Vietnam, traditionally the top buyer of Russian weapons. Russia's demography isn't helped by war losses and emigration.


Deploy the Kissinger (and Ray Dalio)

>Spy balloons over the American midwest, warnings from Beijing of a clash if Washington “doesn’t hit the brakes” and intense congressional scrutiny of investment in China — there could hardly be a less auspicious time for US business to attend Beijing’s flagship investment conference.

>But this weekend, former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, investor Ray Dalio and American business chiefs including Jon Moeller of Procter & Gamble will head to Beijing for what has been billed as an opening-up party after three years of a strict zero-Covid policy.

>Many of the business figures attending the China Development Forum will be seeing their mainland operations and meeting Beijing officials for the first time in three years. But while the Davos-like event is focused on “opportunities and co-operation” as the Chinese economy rebounds from the pandemic, the headwinds facing US business interests in China are also coming from Washington.

The polar opposite is Uni teaching, in certain courses, because you're teaching people who actually want to be there. I couldn't handle kids.
Seriously, they let you be in charge without what seems like essential training? I think that calls for union discussion.


>they let you be in charge without what seems like essential training? I think that calls for union discussion.
Nah not in charge, I'm just a Teaching Assistant. I'm going to join a union though, just in case. Things like helping kids go to the toilet (they have to be reminded a lot of the time, and the wheelchair-bound kids need assistance) is dodgy territory, and honestly I'm not comfortable doing it for fear that I'll do something wrong and upset or hurt them. Luckily there are staff there who are trained to do that kind of thing, but some of them kind of expect agency staff like me to do it as well, and… yeah, I'm still not comfortable with it.
>The polar opposite is Uni teaching, in certain courses, because you're teaching people who actually want to be there. I couldn't handle kids.
I'm still there, but I want to go up to Further/Higher education, because that's where things start getting interesting. As useful as being able to coerce 6 year old children into their chairs is, I'd rather get better at explaining things to people and encouraging them to think about concepts and create things for themselves. The 10-12 year olds are a little bit better in that regard, but 17-21 is the age range I'm moving towards. I really flourished when I studied Music at above-school level, so that's where I want to end up.

Also phonics is bullshit, at least for the English language. Our spelling is just too inconsistent, and I have a feeling kids just kind of end up working it out for themselves - except our kids have special needs, so they struggle with it even with 1:1 assistance. I get the impression that some of them don't practice at home all that much either, which is absolutely vital for any skill.

If your economy becomes so deregulated that there is no separation between commercial and investment banking, and every dollar the proletariat puts in their savings account collects interest from the investment the bourgeoisie are doing, then does that mean the proletariat is investing and owning means of production on a microscopic scale, even though they still have to sell their labor power? Retirement plans also similarly will do private sector investment. It seems that capitalists are really muddying the waters so that the distinction between prole and booj becomes less obvious, no?

>and every dollar the proletariat puts in their savings account collects interest from the investment the bourgeoisie are doing
My interest rate is litterally zero percent. What the fuck are you talking about.

Also, class is from classificaiton, trying to put things into categories based on shared traits. Its not a hard binary. Its a view of interests. If you get 50 dollars of interest a year (yeah as if) while you work for all your other income, then you dont really care what happens to the bourgoiesie, youre a prole. Similarly, if you work in the corporation you own, but 90% of your income comes from the fact that you own it rather than the value you actually add yourself, youre bourgoies.

New marxists (and plenty old fucking retarded boomers and gen xers too) need to get it through their fucking skull that classes describe economic relations, they describe your interests as it pertains to your economic position in society, it is by definition not a natural, hard binary and by definition, in flux.


Also stop posting kim possible characters your threads take up half of the top of the catalogue.
