What does /leftypol/ think of the Badempanada line of argument that says Nazi war aims and ideology(lebesraum) were directly based off of US settler colonialism and manifest destiny?

>The Nazi's primary aim in World War 2, which Hitler had imagined since the 1920s, was the conquest of Eastern European land for German settlement. This was the driver behind everything, including the Holocaust. The Holocaust was engendered by their belief that the imagined 'Jewish Cabal' which keeps Germany down would never allow them to undertake such an endeavour. To 'get around' that problem, they first planned the mass deportation of Jews in Germany and the mass murder/enslavement of Jews in the East, and this later evolved into the outright industrial murder of all Jews - which specifically needed said colonial conquest to be carried out, as all Nazi death camps were in their occupied Eastern colonies.


>Hitler saw the US as the greatest extant example of what he wanted to achieve: a country conquered by people he believed to be ethnically German that had conquered vast amounts of 'open space' for its colonists. For this reason, as he wrote in Mein Kampf, he believed that the USA, with its mastery of 'space' was destined to become the top world power in due time. He planned for Germany to become a world power too, which would inevitably bring it into conflict with the US and the only way he believed that Germany could possibly confront a country like the US was to mimic its mastery of 'space' by conquering Eastern Europe for German settlement. He additionally believed that settler colonialism in other continents ie: Africa would be inadequate; the US' strength came from the fact its 'living space' was contiguous, not simply that it had a lot of it in many different places. Thus Eastern expansion to make Germany itself bigger was the only option.


>This is Hitler's motivation behind the focus on the East rather than Africa or somewhere else, he was not simply mimicking ideologies from the 1600s, he was looking at the world during his own time and came to see the contiguous USA as the model to follow.


>Here's a couple of choice Hitler quotes that make this very clear:


<European countries have their summit in Europe but their base in the whole world - contrast this with the American U

the questions are rhetorical, I only desire that everyone ask themselves the same things, and when they answer, they answer for themselves, and not for me

Even the best of all possible futures, the future where we win, is a tragic future, because of the billions who needlessly died to get us there. The book of Exodus (fictional or not, doesn't matter right now) speaks of Moses dying after 40 years in the desert on the way to the promised land. He dies within sight of the promised land but never actually touches it. If Communism is the secular promised land, then that means the entirety of the human species leading up to the realization of Communism died in the desert on the way there. If all we have is our one life, and when we die we are gone for good, then what good is the lifelong class struggle? What is the difference between our surplus labor value being stolen by the bourgeoisie today and our Communism being stolen by unborn generations who will never have to live through the class struggle like we do? I think this question is why so many people turn away from the promise of building Communism for the unborn generations who will inherit the Earth from us, and instead turn to opportunism and selfish individualism. After all, we know nothing about the unborn generations. All we know is ourselves and the people we hold dear in this life. The unborn generations who will inherit the results of our struggles are as alien to us as we are to the ancients. Moses (fictional or not) did not die in the desert hoping that I could post on the internet. Yet each of us like to say that we would happily die if it meant that people 1000 years from now could live in peace and harmony without having their labor exploited. Is this irrational zealotry, or an admirable trait?

This happened in my experience also, I would discuss socialism but people would always say, oh this is too hard, it's too difficult, it can easily be undone.
And I agree with them. But then I ask, should we then continue our society like it is now? At this point, if they payed attention to the conversation they say, no, we shouldn't. So why not try? We aren't doing this alone, we are building a better future for all of humanity and so on. They usually come to an understanding that class struggle is necessary, but it takes some work to actually get them actualize it. It's progress, though. I was surprised how easy it is to debunk common talking points and when offered an alternative, a reasonable way to do it, the people suddenly don't think communism is this utopia but a very real thing that requires only a few changes essentially how we operate now.
My advice is: learn, learn, learn! Discuss, discuss, discuss! Then, once you have a group which has a correct theory, you apply the lessons of the Bolsheviks to the 21st century and organize a party

Did you ever notice that whenever it's Gulag, there's no corpses, no photos or anything of deaths, at most there's barbed wire (very rarely) and stuff, and all the deaths are recorded, while Nazis had loads upon loads of photos of corpses, but no records of deaths because? Funny how (supposedly) communists destroyed corpses to the very atoms, but kept (totally not fake) records, while Nazis struggled with getting rid of corpses and instead opted out to destroy papers. Say, compare wiki articles https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mittelbau-Dora_concentration_camp to https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%94%D0%BC%D0%B8%D1%82%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BB%D0%B0%D0%B3

In Nazi case, there's immediately photos of corpses. In Soviet case, it's photos of "people responsible" and archival documents. Funny how that works, eh? :^)

Revolution means carrying out class struggle, but it does not merely mean that. The development of the productive forces is also a kind of revolution — a very important one. It is the most fundamental revolution from the viewpoint of historical development.

Over the past 30 years since the founding of the People’s Republic, we have laid the basic socialist foundation in agriculture, industry, and other areas. But we have a major problem, that is, we have wasted some time and our productive forces have developed too slowly. All revolution is designed to remove obstacles to the development of the productive forces.

Since socialism is superior to capitalism, socialist countries should be able to develop their economies more rapidly than capitalist countries, improving their people’s living standards gradually and becoming more powerful. We have suffered some setbacks in this respect.

The objective of achieving the four modernizations was actually put forth by Chairman Mao and announced by Premier Zhou in his report on government work. But how did the Gang of Four respond? They said that it was better to be poor under socialism than to be rich under capitalism. It seemed to them that socialism meant pauperism. Marxists have always held that socialism is superior to capitalism and that socialist countries should be able to develop their productive forces more rapidly than capitalist countries.Lin Biao and the Gang of Four totally deviated from the cardinal principles of Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought.

Being a large country, China should play a more important role in the world, but owing to its limited strength, it cannot play a greater role. In the final analysis, what we should do is try to promote China’s development. It is not enough just to say we are poor, and actually, we are very poor. Such a status quo is far from being commensurate with the standing of a great nation such as ours. Therefore, starting last year, we shifted our focus onto economic development. We should unequivocally continue to do so. Developing the economy is a new endeavour for us, for which we must pay a price. We are exploring ways to develop the economy more rapidly and we have confidence that we can do so. We must emancipate our minds and we should do so even in answering the question as to what socialism is. If the economy remains stagnant and the people’s living standards remain at a very low level for a long period of time, we cannotPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

NTA but I want to add to this. The NEP was also never meant as a way to "develop the productive forces" but as a way to make up for massive loss of material during the Russian Civil War which happened shortly after Russia fought in WW1. By the mid 1920s Russia had repaired and replaced most of the lost factories and railroads and stabilized the economy enough to socialize again. China's "productive forces" dwarf what the Soviet Union had in 1991 let alone at it's height in the 50s and 60s. They've allowed the rampancy of the market to take hold. The only reason China won't "Maoize" China is because it involves acute social conflict not just domestically, but internationally it's a call to action which draws clear lines in the sand the way it did in the 60s.

No, NEP was 1) a temporary retreat, as per Lenin 2) it enabled USSR to get money to buy factories and to develop productive forces during NEP and afterwards

They don't need to "maoize" anything because Mao's China wasn't a developed socialist economy. Presenting Mao's China as some sort of USSR is fucking dumb, it was a poor peasants' country that pooled resources for it's development.

Why is the alt-right/far-right so obsessed with Jews? It completely blinds them from any kind of other elite or systemic thought and radicalism. If Jews and Judaism never even existed, how would the modern right even make sense of power politics? Like I get that there are a reasonable number of Jews in American/Capitalist power structure, but to pretend they're the absolute source and core of everything wrong is obviously a simpleton's oversimplification to understand a complex world. Jews live completely rent free in some of these people's heads. I'm curious what other people think about this phenomenon within the right and the "Jewish question" in general.

I dunno either but the state of American Jewry is complicated. In Borough Park maybe that's true. So, roughly half of world Jewry lives in the U.S. and the other half in Israel, and the American Jews are probably the most liberal (in the U.S. political context) group of white people here and most of them vote for Democrats, but there's a contradiction when it comes to supporting Israel because that's a very right-wing country.

This is one reason why support for Israel is now declining among young Jews – like support for Israel came about as a vicarious thing after World War II because the Holocaust was terrible and Americans Jews felt terrible and helpless that they couldn't stop it. But nowadays that was a long time ago, and anti-Semitism exists but it really doesn't feel like the exigent threat that it was in the past. American Jewish culture (with some exceptions here) is also historically pretty liberal, but then the Jewish institutions turned into pro-Israel groups over that period and not much besides. What started out as not caring about anything except whether you support Israel or not turned into not caring about anything particularly *Jewish* in the American context either. Hell, for some of these institutions like AIPAC, you could be an anti-Semite and they'll take your money.

And Israel is a very different place, and Israelis can look down on American Jews and call them stupid and that they should just move to Israel and get with their program. So many American Jews are ghosting these institutions and also leaving Judaism the religion, and half of American Jews now marry non-Jews and don't raise their kids in the Jewish religion. Basically all Jewish religious denominations in the U.S. are in decline other than the Orthodox Jews who are conservative and have a lot of kids. It's within that community where you tend to find Jews who support Israel and Trump and basically try to live like their ancestors in Eastern Europe did in the 19th century.

Ben Shapiro is also kind of a freak too because he's young, but he's more like an older American Zionist Jew in a young man's body, so Israel is the main thing that matters to him. But I think he's really out of step with a lot of young Jews. Think more of guys like Adam Friedland, Felix Biederman or Brace Belden who support Bernie and think Israel is a fake cPost too long.

Like that's the weird paradox that we're getting into, where the anti-Semitic portion of the right is politically in the same camp as the pro-Israel faction. And maybe the Israeli government will "condemn" some right-wing figure when they say something anti-Semitic, but I'm not sure they really give a fuck, and there's a growing awareness among these young Jews that the Israelis don't give a fuck about them, so why should they give a fuck about Israel?

Again, you're more likely to identify with one of those guys I just mentioned, because that has more in common with your vibe or your actual life than some IDF stormtrooper firing into a crowd of Palestinians.

Good WSWS article showing how modern antisemitism basically arose in the second half of the 19th century. Modern antisemitism has almost no relation to the medieval Christian antisemitism. Instead it arose as a response to the working class organising, especially after the Paris Commune and even more so after the October Revolution. It comes from the Okhrana and bourgeoisie.

Memes, videos (Has to be under 2 minutes and 20 seconds), informative shit, high effort green posts, funny greenposts. Overall anything that can be used to promote this place that hasn't already been posted. Am debating about making it a requirement for a watermark back to this place, but ehhh, seems kinda unfun. What do you guys think? Also if you have access to the twitter page, use a pfp that isn't saturated as fuck, the current ones blinds my eyes. Thanks.
