Nessuno mi ha ancora spiegato come mai Mussolini da socialista sposó la causa Intervenzionista e anti communista così all'improvviso

>>201872
Mussolini non fu l'unico, molti socialisti dell'epoca erano a favore della guerra perché lo vedevano come modo per dare una spallata definitiva sia agli imperi reazionari per eccellenza, che agli stati borghesi come Francia e Inghilterra che si sarebbero massacrati a vicenda aprendo la strada alla rivoluzione. Le argomentazioni non erano poi così diverse da quelle che sentiamo oggi in favore degli interventi in Libia, Siria, Iraq etc. dove pure tanti sinceri democratici "di sinistra" hanno dato il loro appoggio ai bombardamenti USA per rovesciare questo o quel regime. La differenza è che qui nessuno pensa più a fare la rivoluzione.
Quando venne cacciato dall'Avanti!, Mussolini potè fondare un proprio giornale grazie ai finanziamenti ricevuti da vari gruppi industriali interessati alle commesse militari (FIAT, Ansaldo, etc.) e poi a partire dal 1917 dal Regno Unito che aveva tutto l'interesse a tenere in guerra l'Italia per ovvi motivi.

Because sporadic fighting continued even after the Liberation, with partisans killing fascists and their friends when the official order from Togliatti was to put down weapons. Judges who got their job under fascism were very happy to incriminate communists, many got jailed while other escaped to Czeckoslovakia with the help of the party. In the end, many amnesties for political crimines were proclaimed, so many fascists and a few communist got out of jail. The first amnesty was in 1946 and was signed by Togliatti, needless to say no one in the party liked that.

Some choice excerpts
>Now we have come to the second trial. What is the situation? the men now on trial cannot possibly be under any delusion as to their fate. They must know and they do know that they will be put to death. Despite this they do not hesitate to confess their crimes. Why? The only conceivable answer is that they are guilty. Surely it cannot and will not be argued this time as well that there has been a “deal”, for men like Radek are obviously not so stupid as to believe that they are going to save their lives in that manner after what happened to Kamenev and Zinoviev. It has been said that they have been tortured into confessing. But what greater and more effective torture can there be than knowledge of certain death? In any case, the men in the courtroom have been shown not the slightest evidence of having been tortured or of being under duress. It is said by some that they have been hypnotized into confessing, or that the prosecution, working upon its knowledge of Slav psychology, has somehow trapped these men into confessing deeds of which they are not guilty. For example, the unamity with which the men have been confessing is taken as proof that the confessions are false and have been obtained by some mysterious means. Yet these assertions rest upon no tangible or logical proof whatever. the idea that some inexplicable form of oriental mesmerism has been used is one that sound reason must reject as utterly fantastic. The very unamity of the defendants, far from proving that this trial is also a “frame-up”, appears to me to prove directly the contrary. For if these men are innocent, then certainly at least one of the three dozen, knowing that he faced death in any case, would have blurted out the truth. It is inconceivable that out of this great number of defendants, all should lie when lies would not do one of them any good. But why look beyond the obvious for the truth, why seek in mysticism or in dark magic for facts that are before one’s very nose? Why not accept the plain fact that the men are guilty? And this fact, if accepted with regard to the men now on trial, must also be acceptedPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What major probliems did it cause? Birds don't even eat locusts, it's like with cicadas - it's not a constant food "supply", so predators don't focus on them. But they do eat grain and rice collected. As for other insects supposedly no longer being eaten by birds, why do you think chinese are that stupid that they didn't kill those insects? Vietnamese were washing off agent orange off their plants, but chinese wouldn't develop ways to fight insects? And they drained swamps and reduced antisanitary alongside it all, anyway.

In the USSR, despite mustering the collective labor of 300 million people by force in a natural resource-rich empire 9 million square miles in size and a dozen countries in scope:

>Only 2% owned a color tv

>Only 4% owned a car
>The average household in the USSR was-and in the Russia Federation remains-about 50 square meters, under 200 square feet. This is less than 1/3rd the size of the apartments in Seattle, which are the smallest in the USA
>The Soviet diet was 44% carbohydrates and starch, and had 1/3rd of the animal protein of the US diet
>More doctors than the UK but had healthcare so poor the life expectancy trended downwards from the mid 60s to the mid 80s
>You could not be legally "unemployed"
>You could not easily choose your occupation or leave your occupation for another
>Being over 20 minutes late to work was a criminal offense resulting in a 25% pay cut for up to six months

Other notable facts
>41% of Germany's industrial production capacity was stolen and reassembled in Russia after the war
>26,000 engineers, scientists, aviation experts and their dependents were similarly transplanted to Russia
>Stalin admitted to Eric Johnston of the US Chamber of Commerce that two-thirds of Russia's industrial capability both during and prior to the war was due to the assistance of the United States (the remaining third being largely a Western European import)

As a followup: just to let you libs / cappies know, the restoration of capitalism in Russia and the former soviet socialist republics has not only lead to the excess deaths of 8+ million people from poverty and crime related causes, minimum, but the return of capitalism has done absolutely nothing to solve any of the economic and infrastructural woes of these countries. The problems that they have now are the same problems that they have had in the 70s, and 80s, except now there are fewer hospital beds, worse human services, rampant prostitution, human trafficking, drug abuse, GDP per capita and real consumption is lower now than it was decades ago under socialism, and on top of all of that, Russia has gone from being a self sufficient industrial powerhouse, to only having one resource that they produce: oil.

How can religion be replaced with a more secular and scientific alternative?

In order to answer that, we would need to answer the question
>What is Religion?
And no, I am not talking about the set of beliefs and supernatural stories that are nothing but living mythology. But an all-encompassing context.

For example, religion can be classified as proto-psychology. It developed ideas to cope with plenty of mental illnesses which gave a placebo effect of working. For some, that was all they needed.
When I was a kid, I was dealing with depression a lot. I'd have negative thoughts and memories that get stuck in my head and loop in a cycle. I'd do what any kid knew best.
I asked mom for help.

She used to tell me that these ideas come from Satan to discourage me and bring me down for my faith, and that I should pray to god to get rid of them. It worked.
Does that mean that Satan is real? And that god helped me? Was it simply "placebo" and I am cringe for mentioning that? No. No to all.

I came to learn later that this is actually a very powerful technique. Simply personalizing these negative thoughts and making them talk, sound silly, or even just walk away is a very effective method of dealing with bad thoughts. Sitting on them for a long while can actually develop into symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Religion isn't a conscious choice. Secularism is borne out of material conditions which make it possible. If you talk to most people who go to Church they tend to have pretty secular views. Belief in god has no decisive significance.

I used to think that abrahamic monotheism was the logical conclusion of say platonism but these days I think it's the exclusivism that bothers me. even when the greeks and hindus started trending towards a type of monotheism they didn't try to replace other forms of belief at the point of a sword afaik. wanting everyone to submit to the same idea of god, especially at the expense of their native traditions, seems like jewish autism to me

Religion is community and ritual. While it is used for coping it's not only followed by people coping with something so I don't feel that lies at it's root. There used to be a group called the God Builders that sought to replace religion in the Soviet Union with a sort of secular religion of sorts.

Sometimes I get so blackpilled about the idea of socialism that the idea of barbarism winning seems more likely. Part of me secretly wants to fuck off my job, take a ton of drugs, and become a doomer eco-cyberpunk writer making short stories and maybe some novels while listening to depressive electronic music.

Anyone else feel the same?

Same, fucking same OP. Only thing I'd change is writing essays and maybe video essays on leftist theory in both English and Spanish. I simply don't see a leftist revolution coming to save humanity before climate change kicks in and we're all fucked. The only thing that keeps me going are the small pleasures in life outside the typical wageslave drudgery: walks in the park, talking with my gf, smoking a joint with my friends, cooking a good meal, and reading books.

Another clear example that shows the irreconcilable class differences between the corrupt Union bosses who are aligned with ruling class factions and workers. For this reason formation of International Workers Alliance of Rank and File Committees (IWA-RFC) would be the only effective political strategy in advancing working class interests at the global level.
