Having a nihilistic existential crisis? Feel like your work, being exploited by porkie, can't be used for yourself? Have huge shitlists, lots of vendettas and revenge fantasies you can't fulfil yet?

Joseph Stalin was there. Joseph Stalin believes in you. So believe in Joseph Stalin. These excerpts from biographies about Stalin remind us to WORK STEEL HARD for ONLY ourselves and the future revolution.

< The contours of Joseph's later personality were already disclosing themselves. He was dedicated to self-improvement through daily study. His capacity for HARD WORK, whenever such WORK was useful, was IMMENSE.

- Service, 2004

<Stalin brutally, artfully, INDEFATIGABLY indefatigably BUILT a personal dictatorship within the Bolshevik dictatorship. Then he LAUNCHED and saw through a bloody socialist remaking of the entire former empire, presided over a victory in the greatest war in human history, and took the Soviet Union to the epicentre of global affairs. More than for any other historical figure, even Gandhi or Churchill, a biography of Stalin… eventually comes to approximate a history of the world.

- Kotkin, 2014, page 4

<Perhaps the best that could be said about Oddball, Pockmarked Oska, and Koba the Priest was that he was the quintessential AUTODIDACT, NEVER CEASING TO READ, no doubt as solace, but also because he remained DETERMINED to IMPROVE and ADVANCE himself.

- Kotkin, 2014, page 117

>Trotsky famously wrote that "Stalin did not create the apparatus. The apparatus created him".

<This was exactly backwards. Stalin CREATED the apparatus, and it was a COLOSSAL FEAT… To be sure, we shall see him learning on the job, committing significant mistakes, and it would be a while before he emerged as the recognised Leader (vozhd') not just of the party but of the country. But he demonstrated SURPASSING ORGANIZATION ABILITIES, a MAMMOTH APPETITE FOR WORK, a strategic mind an unscrupulousness that recalled his master teacher, Lenin.

(This is not an identity politics or feminism vs. anti-feminism debate thread. Please don't use it as such.)

Why have women always been subjugated in some way or another? What are the material roots of this sex-based social hierarchy that has permeated virtually all human societies throughout history, and what actions should we as socialists undertake to achieve equality between the sexes?

There was a brief discussion about this in the prostitution thread, but it quickly got buried between all the other conversations going on at the same time. Feel free to share your thoughts - maybe we can come to some sort of conclusion here.

As simple as men could not breastfeed, similarly, they were not cared for until the age of majority, barons who could already start running were already going to hunt and girls were pregnant at very early age.

Yes, but life expectancy of 20 does not actually mean that most people died at around 20. It simply ment that most people born didn't survive past the first few years of their lives, and the ones that did, got to be 40-50 years old

a thread to discuss anything on your mind related to the interconnected crisis of the three

I've been thinking about the viability of nuclear power
I am unconvinced that solar and wind are viable options for 100 % of the grid 100% of the time, anti nuclear types always say solar and wind is cheaper but they don't seem to account for storage costs, forgetting about money, solar power has a energy return on investment that is a lot lower than nuclear, storage has energy losses, requires rare earth minerals in many cases and in the case of battery storage we don't have enough lithium to that for more than a few decades (if that), and living next to a giant storage battery seems like a something that could be extremely dangerous (you are betting your life on alkali metal staying separate from the moisture in the air).

but at the same time
no reactor can be completely immune to accidents, the cost of those accidents is the affected area could become unlivable for many life times, if nuclear is the main power source for all or most countries at least someone somewhere will cut corners.

I've read articles that state that our proven uranium reserves amount to little more than five years worth at 100% nuclear,
things like thorium, breeder reactors (is every country having plutonium a good thing?) and seawater uranium extraction either have big problems or a just things that might happen, can we bet everything on solutions that aren't yet proven?
what do you guys think?

uyghur the whole ass universe is fundamentally hostile to us
out in space the cosmic background radiation will cook you alive without proper shielding, before you even have to worry about lack of oxygen
all we have right now is a narrow slice of this planet
we have under 1/3 of the surface
which is only usable to us to a depth of a few hundred feet in most practical terms
and a lot of that has to remain green space for farms and oxygen recycling
our whole existence hinges on the balance and health of a world thinner than the membrane of a fucking bubble

I was thinking about putting this in /games/, but I seriously think this could have consequences beyond that.
So the long and short of it is: tech companies are unironically LARPing about constructing something similar to The Matrix (?), and it's driving weird amounts of investor hype. I'll provide a few examples and explain why this might be an important development. Oddly, this seems to have penetrated tech/gaming markets in both America and China.
There's not really a short way to describe this weird outgrowth of contemporary investor capitalism without a long post so bear with me.

https://www.bjreview.com/Opinion/Voice/202109/t20210918_800258648.html
"The company announced its new metaverse-based online game that merges virtual with actual reality. Online, every gamer can become a unique brewing master in the China of 100 years ago. When going offline, gamers can pick up the spirits they conjured up whilst gaming online… The bulletin has stirred up quite a sensation in the capital market, pushing up metaverse-related stocks."
That example should, I suppose, tell you a little about what this is.

There was an article in the CPC's China Daily, which basically shat on the concept and called it fantasy:
https://global.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202109/10/WS613ab3faa310efa1bd66e8eb.html
Nonetheless, investors don't seem swayed… hype continues.

https://www.theverge.com/22701104/metaverse-explained-fortnite-roblox-facebook-horizon
There's this article in The Verge clarifying some things, such as that this is related to cryptocurrency NFTs in some way, and this idea originated in dystopian sci-fi fiction (lol). It's not uncommon to see media trying to hype up the concept referencing the children's movie Ready Player One… oddly enough.
Also it's surprisingly candid here:

This confirms my theory that social media was always too much hassle. These companies only want the metadata, they don't want the cost and hassle of having proles actually fucking talking and stuff.

>ITT people schizing out about the matrix becoming real
Why is everyone so fucking gullable? This shit is obvious Tesla-tier vaporware. And even if it wasn't, all these technophobic fears ignore the material reality where all this ebin tech would just be expensive toys for manchildren that have nothing better to do, and not something available generally. And wow, they give Roblox as an example, aka literally a game for kids. Its just more shit to hype up the turbo online techfreaks (that actually know jack shit about tech) that want to believe their favourite magitech dystopia they think is utopia could be real.

Maybe they want a live view of what you are doing. Phones disappear into pockets and then cameras go dark. Or they are chasing a gimmick.

glasses with cameras used to be called spyglasses for a reason. it's not techno-phobia to be upset about Zucker trying to mainstream this. I hope you are right and only a few people adopt it, but it's still a dick move.

they can’t get a prescription as a treatment for covid in most places yet because doctors aren’t willing to risk their license on something that’s actually a more experimental treatment than the vaccine when it comes to treating COVID.

>The classic example is that in WWII bomber planes would tend to come back with holes from AA fire and engineers would reinforce the places where they would see that damage on planes. But then somebody pointed out that AA fire is random and was hitting planes everywhere. It was just that the planes that only got hit in the locations they were seeing were the planes that made it back from the mission. So instead they started reinforcing the parts of the planes where they didn't see any damage from AA guns and that actually improved the number on how many planes made it back.
