WHAT IS MULTIPOLARISM
Multipolarism, in its most basic form, posits a world where multiple powers (countries or entities) exist in a state of relative equilibrium, challenging the unipolar hegemony led mainly by the United States post-Cold War. The emergence of China, the reassertion of Russia, the rise of regional powers like India, Brazil, and South Africa, among others, suggest a move towards this multipolar world.


BUT is it rly just Capitalism 2: Electric Boogaloo - Neo-Dengism Edition? To what extent is multipolarism just capitalist nationalism for people not in green on this map? If the whole thrust of socialism is now just "America bad" what becomes of the classical socialist goals of workers control of the means of production, and abolishing class society?

idk about you but i feel especially vitriolic and hateful toward dictatorships of capital that masquerade in communist draping.

Is Bordiga the worst theorist in all of Marxist history? Name even one worse.

 

Multipolarism is Kautskyism.
Multipolarism is not "the battle against US imperialism", it is the striving towards a world of great capitalist states existing side by site without conflict. This is the ultra-imperialism of Kautsky. It is also retarded and not in line with how capitalism works in reality.

Bordiga making retarded statements is seperate from it being or not being in line with multipolarity. It is not.

Correct, actually. South KKKorea and other pets of the AmeriKKKan Empire like Israel are not subject to unequal exchange like the rest of the Global South because they have completely thrown their lot in with Uncle Sam and exist to contain whatever camp the AmerKKKans don't like.

 

>>1617463
It's people from imperial nations running scared that "they'll do to us what we did to them". It's liberalism and chauvinism.

 

>>1617470
Maybe some of the people buying into the narrative are scared of China, but not the people pushing it. The propagandists just represent Western imperialists who want to slice up China, divide it into little client state fiefdoms, and take direct control over its resources and production, much in the same way they intend to do to Russia. The rhetoric is hysterical and jingoistic, but the actual motive is pure expansionism.

 

>>1617474
>The rhetoric is hysterical and jingoistic, but the actual motive is pure expansionism
It amounts to the same thing.

 

>>1610427
The form of imperialism in our era is the global reserve currency. From the currently available information, China has zero plans to make the Yuan one, because they see how badly it's going for America.

>Pope Francis has slammed the West for murdering Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein and leaving 'organised anarchy' behind as well as saying that ISIS emerged as a result of 'an unfortunate Western choice'




>"It is true. Of the consequences of colonialism and, in particular, the appropriation of their natural resources. But also of the failure of the West in its attempt to import its own type of democracy into certain countries with a culture, I won't say tribal, but of a similar nature. Let's think about Libya, which seems to be able to be led only by very strong personalities like Gaddafi. A Libyan told me that they once had only one Gaddafi, but now they have fifty-three. The Gulf War was a true disgrace, not to say one of the worst cruelties. Saddam Hussein was certainly no little angel, on the contrary, but Iraq was a fairly stable country. Warning: I am not defending Gaddafi or Hussein. But what did the war leave behind? Organized anarchy and more war. Therefore I believe that we must not export our democracy to other countries, but rather help them develop a process of democratic maturation according to their characteristics. Don't go to war to import a democracy that their people are unable to assimilate. There are countries that have a monarchical system and that will probably never accept a democracy, but we can certainly contribute to ensuring that there is greater participation. In any case, I consider myself ignorant when it comes to international politics, but I believe that the appearance of ISIS is based on an unfortunate Western choice."

The last time we had strong multipolarity, it ended up in two world wars. The reason Pax Romana, Pax Mongolica, Pax Britannica, and Pax Americana are named that way is because there was one dominant power keeping trade routes open, and not having huge conflicts with rivals.

multipolarism is a recipie for geopolitical conflict

>Put simply, the United States, as every country, is not a product of genocide and slavery, nor is it a product of freedom and liberty, it is a product of class antagonisms and struggle, in this regard it is not exceptional
This is a really weird, self-defeating argument. The genocide of indigenous peoples is a manifestation of the struggle and class antagonisms spoken of here, as relating to imperialism. MIDWESTERN MARX IS TROTSKYIST BECAUSE THEY REVISED LENIN'S THEORY OF IMPERIALISM SO THAT THEY CAN IGNORE THE FACT THAT THE GREAT WEALTH OF THE UNITED STATES IS DERIVED FROM IMPERIALIST EXPLOITATION OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES!

You faggots really out to join the other fascists if your prerogative is to rant and rave at proles from the West that """socialism""" unironically means white genocide and mass poverty

 

people who are against multipolarism reject the political struggle. they're basically anarchists.

Well there isn't revolution in any of those countries right now, nor does one appear likely. So explain to my why doing agitprop and producing communist media isn't contributing to the movement. You realize that every remotely successful communist movement in the past has generated its own media landscape correct? It's literally part of the superstructure of the working class movement. Would you prefer that we produce nothing and just allow everything to be dominated by anticommunist narratives?

There are plenty of leftist content creators who don't advertise schlock or ask for donations, and on top of that they aren't already rich like Secondthought/Yugopnik

Why are they telling me ground news is good at "catching both left and right biases!" It's literal bothsides centrist neoliberal shlock that they're paid to advertise. And they slip this right into the middle of their content. Because they're paid to.

Imagine simping this desperately for breadtube shills

 

>>1725675
>How else is the rich boy with his own office and his huge collection of expensive cameras supposed to support himself?
fam have you seen their livestreams? They rake in like 25K in a single hour. And on top of that they advertise and get patreon money and ad revenue. It's pure grift.

 

>>1725680
They are a bourgeois organ

 

>>1725690
But they used their labor for that money. They worked for everything they had. They sold their labor to youtube for wage and used that wage to make more wage.

 

>>1725690
You know what a grift is, yes? You think that all of them have made up their political views? If not then it is not a grift, dumbass. Mere success isn't automatically a grift.

 

>>1725677
So, just like every other worker? Or who pays you a wage? lmao

 

>>1725690
Look socialism isn't a poverty cult, sure maybe it would be better if they gave everything to the poor and lived like monks but more leftist creators is good even if they're rich or have rich backgrounds (you know like Lenin and Engels)

>>1725695
>Picture of a struggling working class small business owner scraping together his five patreon nickels without which he would starve to buy an office and huge collection of cameras and frat boy rapist outfit

They worked for everything they had? No. The value of a commodity is the socially necessary labor time required to produce it. Work that relies on donations is not usually paid its actual value but above or below its value by some random amount. They are paid far more than they work for. Also when you run something like that it's basically a limited liability corporation.

 

>>1725700
>It's not a poverty cult
Correct
<therefore the rich small business owner advertising neoliberal propaganda is definitely a communist
wrong

 

>>1725704
if he delivers good socialist agitprop it doesn't even matter what is inside their head

 

>>1725688
>what is a conflict of interest?
It's only a conflict of interest if their sponsors care about what they say and try to influence their content. Given that they're some of the only leftist ecelebs that consistently oppose the US/NATO at every turn, openly praise AES including the USSR, and straight up said that there's no such thing as an Israeli civilian, I'm not at all convinced of this.
>It's literal bothsides centrist neoliberal shlock that they're paid to advertise.
Who cares? They have a whole hour dedicated to pushing communist ideas but you're put off by a 30 second ad for a product you don't like? How does that negate the rest of their content?
>>1725690
So you have to be poor to be a communist?
>It's pure grift.
If it's a grift then it's a bad one considering they've chosen one of the smallest most niche audiences in the world.

 

>>1725695
>They worked for everything they had.
All 3 of them hire editors and possibly also script writers

 

>>1725707
except it's not good agitprop, and it has advertisements in the middle of it

 

>>1725712
if it's not good agitprop then attack it for those reasons instead of crying that they make money

 

>>1725710
>So you have to be poor to be a communist?
No you don't have to be poor but it's very obvious when someone is telling you that ground news is unbiased that they're trying to sell you a product

 

>>1725715
Ok and? Just ignore the ads like everyone else does

 

>>1725695
You cannot seriously be calling the valorization of viewer-consumption waged remuneration, or 'earning a wage'

 

>>1725715
bro just install the extension that skips that part

 

>>1725723
wait is there an extension that skips the in-video ads?

 

>>1725725
yes, look it up

 

>>1725714
the reason it's bad agitprop is because they advertise neoliberal propaganda and fake privacy products in the middle of their "analysis" which isn't even rooted in Marx but in a kind of "chapotraphouse but zoomer" vibes based theory

 

>>1725715
>that they're trying to sell you a product
So you saying that advertisements are meant to… sell products???

 

>>1725730
>which isn't even rooted in Marx
How is it not rooted in Marx? Hakim especially shills like 5 book recommendations per episode, usually by Marxist authors if not Marx's own work.

 

>>1725730
Chapo is good, if you want only Marx based analysis then do it and try to make it entertaining but without these kind of streamers/yters there would be almost no people consuming leftist content

 

>>1725731
it's obvious it's a grift for them because on top of making far more than the average person does from voluntary donations alone, they still advertise neoliberal garbage. Meanwhile you have someone like S4A who will just spend 3 hours reading lenin at you for free and advertise nothing.

 

>>1725731
The content they produce is just an advertisment.

 

>>1725734
Hakim is the only one that might be good. The other two kidnapped him and are torturing him in Abu Ghraib

 

>>1725730
>their "analysis" which isn't even rooted in Marx
by which you mean isn't rooted in Heidegger or Lacan or whatever peripheral thinker who is decidedly not Marxist but certain weirdos like you insist on trying to graft onto communism

 

>>1725742
Yugopnik literally shills Lacan and Zizek in his masculinity video

 

>>1725742
and no, I don't mean the nazi heidgger or the freudian retard lacan. i don't care about that shit and didn't bring it up, you did

 

>>1725737
>it's obvious it's a grift for them because on top of making far more than the average person does from voluntary donations alone, they still advertise neoliberal garbage.
So, just to be clear, you are saying that in order to be a proper propagandist/educator for communism in the current media environment, you must refuse to make more than a certain amount of money and/or refuse to take money the bourgeoisie are willing to give you for making ads that don't even work?

 

>>1725737
>Meanwhile you have someone like S4A who will just spend 3 hours reading lenin at you for free and advertise nothing.
Probably why nobody listens to them. That's shit content. If I wanted to read Lenin I would read Lenin. Commentary, interviews, etc are something else entirely.
>>1725739
Correct, an advertisement for communism.

 

grifter defense forces coming out strong tonight.
>>1725748
>Correct, an advertisement for communism.
no, an advertisement for fake privacy malware and fake 'unbiased' neoliberal propaganda

 

>>1725752
>grifter defense forces coming out strong tonight.
We want socialist propaganda that people will actually see, not channels that get basically no views.

 

>>1725752
How does 30s of ads most people ignore negate an hour plus of explicitly communist commentary?

 

>>1725747
no you shouldn't refuse money, but if you're already rich and on top of that you're advertising fake privacy software and fake "unbiased" neoliberal propaganda in the middle of your "communist" agitprop, you probably are a grifter. if you make 25k for livestreaming a video game for an hour while you barely talk about communism, and then hordes of your simps come to your defense about this, it glows.
>>1725748
>That's shit content.
no that's great content. a single mom who's folding laundry and changing a diaper can listen to lenin instead of having to drag out a dusty old tome from the library during her 1 hour of free time. shit content is 3 rich zoomers livestreaming donkey kong and talking about mao memes and testicles

 

>>1725748
>Correct, an advertisement for communism.
No, the content is completely irrespective of the form.

This is the lynch pin of the critique of modern consumption, for which you need to have read Adorno's The Culture Industry to peak into. It is simply the repitition of a dull economic act.

I'm pretty sure Iraq isn't just entirely a backwater destroyed wasteland. I'd put some money down that there are well developed sectors in that country where people live relatively well off lives (especially doctors). He's probably rich as any doctor would be in a country like that. That doesn't make him some glowie. C'mon.
>i'm supposed to believe these 2 bourgeois guys and this 1 doctor from the imperial periphery share a love for the proletariat
Who cares, they are socdems who do it for the money like any fucking political content creator.

YES.

There has never been a successful communist movement without the participation of the masses. The fact that mass mobilization is not by itself sufficient doesn't make it less necessary.

 

i thought multipolarity was desirable in so far as the ensuing destabilization weakening of the hegemon allows a well organized and disciplined communist party to organize the masses and seize power

but the "communists" are too busy shitposting and looking at gore pics online, so I pretty much expect the fascists to seize the opportunity instead

Advocating for communism, defending past communist experiments, opposing current imperialist policies, giving platforms to communist organizations, attacking bourgeois historical narratives, etc. all threaten these interests, at least if they lead people to act on them. The only way you could argue otherwise is if your position is that a communist movement can succeed without a media apparatus to spread our views.
>Capital would abandon the American Empire as easily as it abandoned the British Empire
Not really relevant here since the Deprogram guys seem to judiciously avoid taking a stance on the allegedly progressive character of BRICS. They've platformed both pro and anti-Russian guests for example. They may be trying to avoid alienating any fans who are too autistic to patronize some dudes they don't 100% agree with, or they may have internal disagreements on that question. Probably a bit of both tbqh.

What makes it a "consumer identity" exactly? They're spreading communist ideas. Is it building a "consumer identity" to read Marx? To read Marxist historians? To read Marxist analyses of current events? It's a critique which means nothing.

1. The Deprogram guys aren't exactly "multipolaristas". They have yet to take a position on it.
2. All you're really criticizing is consumption of ideas (and signifiers thereof) without corresponding action. However that has nothing to do with easily consumable communist media as such. Any effective movement will need such media, the mere fact that media consumption alone is not sufficient doesn't make it a "consumer identity." It's not sufficient but it is necessary, and in this particular case the hosts are either members of orgs themselves, or they urge people to join them and take action. You're calling it a "consumer identity" based on a strawman you created of a person who only consumes without action. That applies equally to actual theory as well, but I doubt you would say that Marx is bad and we should avoid him just because people often read him but don't get involved in the movement.

It's a geopolitical development actually, one which Western porkies are definitely not okay with since they're about to plunge us into WW3 to stop it. Of course it won't end capitalism, but it will destabilize it, undermine the material basis for the rule of Western porkies over their own people, and cripple their ability to contain socialist movements abroad.

We are still waiting since 1991 for communists to "destabilize" and "cripple" us while we make business as usual. We never said it was an eternal bull market, you only have to play your cards right.

 

Remember when oil futures went negative in 2020? Multipolarity will probably help stabilize the prices! More opportunities for me!

Thank you for taking this opportunity to display your total ignorance of anti-imperialist theory and discourse since the 70s, sorry I meant "tell us how smart you are for inventing criticizing India".
The discussion of India and South Africa as sub-imperialist states should take up most of our time. I've repeatedly pointed this out before, as well as my highly plausible explanation:
There is no discussion on this site of peripheral countries except when it comes to bending over backwards to explain why people agree with the Washington Post, but for BASED LEFTIST REASONS. That's why there is more criticism of anti-imperialist countries than sub-imperialists. There isn't enough for the propaganda-addicted ultra leftists to pay attention to.
Have you ever posted about the genocide in Manipur and how it relates to India's sub-imperialism against Bangladesh? No, you were busy wanking.

Socialism will not just appear when there is a war. Revolution will not just appear when there is a war. It rests upon the conditions of a time and place already set forth way waay beforehand and the preparations of a socialist/communist party to be aware of those revolutionary conditions. We don't have that now, we currently got jack shit in 90% of the globe. It is idealist to think in such terms and flies in the face of Marxist theory to see things with such disregard at a time so fucking dire for organizing and more importantly education.

In an internal economic environment - labor holds more power to extract concessions and assert itself from a competitive market than a dominant monopoly. An internal contradiction in interests creating an oppurtune externality .
In historical application the bipolar cold war world was the peak of surplus distribution even within the capitalist world specifically because a competing power structure existed that gave domestic labour leverage.
Therefore in present conditions where that capitalist logic presides worldwide; the negotiating position of labor against haute bourgeois capital with regards to surplus distribution and organisation improves in parallel with the competing periphery bourgeoise up to the half-way line.

Multipolarism is an integrative step, an additional factor towards an aggregate of historical progress. To caricature it as 'the communism button' in order to portray basic political economy as idealism is projection
As a simple retort what else? how does unipolarity better serve the cause? what would multipolarity take away? Why is multipolarity supposedly exclusive to political organisation and not merely a catalyst? Ambivalence towards what is only a additive step is acceptable. Downright opposition to the notion of an increased chance of success if - for even a moment - capital is divided is terminally lib. Posturing with the hegemons interests to win an internet argument. A hegemons whose interests are as against you as the national bourgeois' are with less offsetting contradictions to gain ground. Agnostic disinterest is the valid counterpoint to involved multipolarism - an active denouncement against believing that hegemonic rot is an opportunity glows

Socialism! Not Multipolarism
2nd Edition 9-10-2023
A. Bloodgasm


Multipolarity is not something one should be for or against, because it really isn't something you can attach yourself to like some camp or some ideology. Multipolarity, as an existent term, is just a signifier of the current global economic conditions of the world in regards to the current dominant powers that own and transfer capital whether within their borders or without. What it means as a definition is just that instead of a singular global hegemon influencing global affairs or a dual power struggle between two superpowers, it is a condition in which the world is divided amongst multiple powers influencing global affairs/capital/the market.

To be for or against it is the equivalent of going out in the street and declaring yourself as being pro-summer or anti-winterists. Its silly. Its just like the changing of seasons and people have to adapt to it. When its freezing outside, you change into something warmer. But even the hardiest winter clothing is not going to keep one warm against the coldest winter, and we are heading into a long hellish winter. A capitalist winter twilight.

One thing many who espouse the concept of multipolarism (attaching oneself to multipolarity as if it is an ideology) tend to forget (or just outright refuse to acknowledge) that this new multipolar world we are heading towards is a capitalist-centric multipolarity. History has shown that last time this world had gone through a capitalist-led multipolar age helmed by imperialist powers, it had unleashed two world wars and countless dead. This not to say that having a unipolar or bipolar world is any better. During the Cold War the champion of capitalist hegemony, the United States, through proxy wars as well as actual wars, coups, and assassinations/subterfuge helped/directly committed atrocities and war-crimes that make WWII pale in comparison. During the unipolar reign of neoliberalism after the USSR fell, the atrocities did not stop, it only continued. Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, the list goes on and continues to this day. All to reinforce capitalism and sustain imperialist expanse.

This is why one cannot attach themselves to a concept of multipolarity, or unipolarity, or bipolarity. The problem is not how many powers there are in the world. The problem is the global economic system that those powers exist under. Capitalism. Capitalism breeds competition. Nations or precisely the national bourgeoise of that nation compete for capital. They do not grow together in peace under capitalism as many proponents of multipolarism tend to espouse as a benefit of multipolarity. They head towards conflict, because capitalism breeds conflict. There is no multipolar peace under capitalism, only the prelude to war and destruction as nations compete for power.

Proponents of multipolarism will almost always fall back on and reference the stymied development of imperialized nations outside of the imperial core. They are correct in pointing this out and referencing the contradiction of neocolonialism. Those nations do in fact need to break free from imperialism and national liberation is necessary. But it is one thing to understand the purpose of a national bourgeoisie replacing the comprador in that struggle, but it is important to never rest solely on the national bourgeois to lead the socialist revolution or to think that they would ever allow that to happen. They ignore class and only focus on the “development” of said nations. This is a primary flaw of the multipolarist that leads to their the defense of reactionary regimes and the repression those regimes do to socialists within those nations.

Multipolarism does not care for the working class of those nations. It is just a changing of task masters. Nothing more, nothing less. Any boon for the workers borne from breaking away from the global hegemon is the equivalent of a heavy boot slightly being let off their collective necks. The struggle for socialism is not over and not won. The fact is that they are still under the boot of their national oppressors. It is up to them and we as socialists to use that slight aside to break free from under the weight of that boot.

Many multipolarists love to reference the how many of these budding capitalist nations have seemingly good standings with the few “socialist” nations of this world most predominantly Cuba and the DPRK as if that is a justification that multipolarity is a net positive. They tend to forget completely the this does not wash away the fact these growing countries are still capitalist and oppress their own working class.

If anything this does not justify multipolarity at all, it only reinforces that we still currently exist under a unipolar hegemony front-manned by the United States. This is because most of these countries are aligned due to the economic pressure (sanctions and blockades) put forth by the United States as well as the EU NATO-bloc (which is by in large an extension of American power). When that pressure eventually fades only time will tell if that alignment of those interests between worker-led nations and the nations run by power-hungry capitalists continue or (as history has shown us many times) inevitably clash.

And what of the old lion in the room? The United States. It is a waning power there is no doubt of it. Mulitpolarists love to frame their idealist multipolar world as one in which the United States is practically a nonentity. That there will be new orders that rise in its stead. That same United States that has military bases all across the globe will somehow just cease to be a relevant thing. Or if anything it will turn a new leaf and just accept the changing of seasons. Iridescent foolishness. Capitalism breeds conflict and the United States has sustained itself off conflict, colonialism, and imperialism from its inception. The capitalists who run that country will be anything but docile when their grip on global power is threatened. We see it today with the arming of Ukraine and the powder keg that is Taiwan. Global war is brewing, a prelude to the birth of a new multipolar world. If we even survive to see it. And all for what I ask you? Another capitalist-led world built on the ruins of the last? This is not even capitalist realism at this point. It is just capitalist reincarnation. A continual recycling of the capitalist system reinventing itself at the expense of everything; our entire existence put to flame just to try and keep the old ways alive. That is the multipolar world we are heading towards. But it doesn't have to be that way.

The global workers movement has been gutted and kept down for decades especially in the west. This has led many to adopt a form a campism to cope with lack of a united global movement. Anti-americanism, eastern/western dichotomy, and multipolarism are offshoots of this void. It allows one to feel that are apart of something bigger than themselves that, in their minds, can lead to something different. A capitalist multipolar world will not change or fix the problems that affect this world (which are born from capitalism) only the amount of hands that hold power in it (hands which are almost all attached to the arms of each respective nation's capitalist class).

This does not mean there is no global proletariat or that workers movements have gone extinct. Capitalism proletarianizes the populace. Workers currently toil in hellish conditions all around the globe and they are aware of their position. They know they are mistreated. They are striking and protesting for better conditions all around the global south. Workers are fighting against their oppressors. There is class consciousness among the working class. We must push towards socialism. Not only national liberation. Not some distant idealist dream of a multipolar world which only continues the corrupt system of the past. But socialism. We should not just want a multipolar world in the yolk of capitalism. Whether unipolar, bipolar, or multipolar it must be socialist! We must demand and bring forth a world run by the workers not the just the national capitalist class of warring nations. Global polarity feels like the changing of seasons and it seems we are heading towards a deadly winter. The best winter clothing may not protect one, but if we all get together for warmth, we'll persevere.

Stop posting Lenin like he'd agree with your stupid stance of supporting bourgeois nation-states when the whole world is already fully capitalist. Whatever farmed quotes pseuds post ITT are referring to the epoch of anti-feudal struggles against colonialism, which is long over. The bourgeoisie today is a reactionary class worldwide - to support bourgeois states against other bourgeois states is as reactionary as feudalists against capitalism back then.

In addition, Lenin also termed Japanese capitalism 'equally predatory' as American capitalism, despite genuine feudalism still existing there which was removed only in the 1950s after the American occupation, labour productivity in Japan being very low, being an agrarian society.

>Supporting nation states
There is no support from a internet armchair. Multipolarity is a material position(that is happening regardless of "personal support") not a personal opinion.

Where are the sources supposing multipolarism just generates socialism? Who says this? Proving that multipolarism doesn't create a socialist state is a shower argument against yourself stated publicly. It changes nothing.
An inherent admission of multipolarism is that it will be a series of competing predatory capitalist states. Whom with reduced recourses and less individual power predate less because they have less leverage to extract as much surplus with an alternative state available. Their position is weakened. Multipolarity is an iteration of underlying conditions not the magic bullet. proving it isn't the magic bullet changes nothing because it is not the argument.

Multipolarism is not an individual ideology that replaces or supplements. It is not the moral support a specific nation state. It is a material condition that increases the odds by just that little bit.
The bourgeois nation state will act in this fully capitalist world with or without personal opinion/support. Whether it mutates conditions favourably is the enitre point the whole time.

For someone repeatedly saying "material" like that makes your argument automatically correct, you simply do not understand class positions. One bourgeois country or the other "winning" has nothing to do with communism.
The conditions for communism were already there a century ago. The bourgeois exist in every country, so America existing or not is irrelevant.

 

>>1829407
So imperialism is merely a subjective policy manoeuvre? You can "become" imperialist at will? If Iran sent a few troops tomorrow hypothetically to neighboring Pakistan and grabbed a few villages, it would "become" imperialist all of a sudden, everything else remaining the same? Is maintaining a large naval fleet, engaging in proxy conflicts in the Middle East and attempting to construct nuclear weapons not enough of a struggling for resources for you?

How is it that Bulgaria in 1908, or Romania in 1919, or Poland in 1920 reached this supposed 'stage' of imperialism but modern day Iran apparently hasn't despite being far more developed than any of the aforementioned?

What Lenin wrote (the flaws in his theory aside), he did not intend those criteria as a checklist for determining whether an individual state was imperialist or not - across Bolshevik writings you can find them calling states like Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Greece and even Kemalist Turkey imperialist. And it was certainly not to distinguish the relationship between rich and poor bourgeois nations - Lenin mentions in an article how Italian imperialism was termed "poor man's imperialism" owing to Italy's immense poverty then.

A country where 85% of the population were backward smallholder peasants can be capitalist-imperialist, but modern Iran that is far more developed, is somehow not. Curious. Lenin was not stupid enough to use his checklist as a qualifier for whether or not an individual state was imperialist, he used it to summarize what he saw as features of the world capitalist system as a whole.

 

>>1829422
If a specific bourgeois state won it wouldn't be multipolar it would be unipolarity again under a new flag. Who/where is calling for russia and chinas bourgeois to dominate global markets as the new order?

If none of the bourgious states outright win - if (as reality is trending towards) a series a regional blocs appear. Organisation/Agitation will have better odds against these more fragile states as history prior evidenced.

The point of the labor market example is that there is a relative scale of bourgeois power. That when on the lower end of this spectrum - the product of brief moments of competition between monopoly periods - surplus redistribution (therefore leverage in the economy the general oppurtunity to agitate and organise grows

The cultural existence of America is irrelevant - the power of their bourgeois as world monopolist is. Again Multipolarism does not claim to be the solution, it is a positive addition at best and a lost oppurtunity at worst.
To view it as a moral position supporting a specific cultures economic class reveals an moralistic,indivudalistic lib understanding of the world.

Large technological stocks of Russia armed forces remain reliant on western imports (by proxy) fighting the very same western interests that know what's going on when millions in tech is globally imported to Kazakhstan or other border states.

How ridiculous. imperialism is global colonial financial system that prevents poor enclosed nations from developing. This is the core of modern geopolitics. Bloodgasm won't answer whether Iran and Venezuela are imperialist because he knows this fake ML definition passed around by The Deprogram and Politsturm applies to them.

This is just so funny for some reason. What do people even think finance capital is? Some arcane, esoteric, mysterious artifact only a select few can possess? Do countries like Yemen not have banks, shares, stocks, bonds or anything?
Coming into second hand contact with the retarded Lenin pamphlet reinforces their belief that it's a mystical trick of the dominant powers. Even if it was, and imperialism was simply financial domination, that'd just make Yemen an imperial puppet, hardly 'anti-imperialist' by any logic because modern finance can literally not be untangled from the capitalist system as a whole. There is absolutely no way to be both a bourgeois state and 'anti-imperialist'.

 

>>1829454
Correct - which is why there is no source on earth claiming multipolarism is a idelogical answer to capitalism.

>>1829477
So you think that the definition of finance capitalism is solely about the FIRE sector's proportions within a particular economy? So you use the example of Yemen? Uhh, okay buddy (ultra). Even if we stuck with that example it's patently ridiculous to compare the most heavily financialized countries on earth to the lowest income least financialized economies on earth. Go ahead call Eritrea imperialist with their subsistence farmers just because they have a competent military. You're grasping at straws.
Imperialism examines global trade, networks of ownership and payments, the debt system, myriad things which you don't even acknowledge the existence of as they disintegrate the entire nation of Haiti. Have you been living under a rock for say, 25 years?

I keep leaving out migrant labor but it's the perfect example, along with the US having permanenly uncollected debt payments, of how rightoids reverse the victims and offenders of imperialism right under your noses. You wouldn't even be able to mount an argument against something that simple because you turn a blind eye to how we use other countries' debts to us to exploit them. You cannot imagine this happening without "magic powers" so anyone who notices it happening must just hate America, right? Don't you have some tendies to go eat?

>>1829466
>The contradiction between capitals global interest and the individual profit interest of each individual capitalist entity.
This right here is why people can't understand how the labor aristocracy work in the US. They think anyone saying the US exploits other countries thinks the wealth trickles down. Only to the top 10% with mortgages, retirement, benefits, even they still give up much of their superprofits back to the FIRE sector and all kinds of bullshit, they don't care because they make plenty of money at Google. That's why Google workers did a tepid little sit-in while Starbucks direct action is getting the goods. It's the tech workers and cybersecurity fags and finance and pharma industry lower ranks that are the labor aristocracy, not baristas.
Nobody is valorizing industrial exploitation of workers. But the contradictions between industrial and finance capital are stark. US banking is about pure rent seeking. There is no industrial investment. 80% of Chase's money comes from mortgages.

 

Just to sum this discussion up without reading it. The important gap is not between the multipolaristas and the other. The important distinction is between people that engage with reality and those that do not.

In a counterfactual world where Russia is the decaying world monopolist in a global capitalist world. Where instead it - not anywhere else - is the largest concentration of capitalist power leveraging its superiority to more effectively supress any organised attempt at improving conditions let alone political change;
The multipolar position would be to support semi-periphery east coast against the Canadian comprador state (or whatever) because of the same simple logic that there is ground to be gained by the third party (labor) when cynical actors are divided in conflict than united against you.
The perception that multipolarism is anti-americanism can only be born of believing American exceptionalism is why they are the seat of capital. Rather than a geoeconomic determinative that has no bearing on specific culture. It is projection and putting the cart before the horse

>"Defend"
You're still fucking doing it; what is this liberal personification of states - capitalist states no less - as individualistically moral entities to be 'defended' or 'denounced'. There is no defending or supporting anything because there is no effect at a commentary level because it could not care less. Out of cynical interest calculated upon historical conditions it did not choose - the Russian bourgeois have found themselves in opposition. Whose success comes at the cost of the hegemon to create a weaker net capitalist whole.

If everyone here signed a petition denouncing the invasion not a fucking thing would change and vice versa. Because morality at the individual level can only be superficially performative. Rather at the systematic level does it become salient.
At that systematic level, conceding to reality that the invasion has occurred completely irrespective to any personal opinion because history is not debate club. How this event can be seized upon, how this event shakes up capitalist dynamics, how that shakeup can be used as a catalyst for. Is the moral imperative with respect to reality.

The bourgeois are opportunistic, that opportunism has come into contradiction with a competing opportunist state that refuses to concede its hoarded rentier position. An event to be used rather than snidely dismissed. A dismissal that in its performative opposition puts you in parallel with hegemonic interests.


Geopolitics is not a "debate" where a side is picked. With an individualistic presumption that the world cares. It is observed and acted around. The point that is refused to be understood; that it is but one convenient step not the goal.

 

>>1829849
>Geopolitics is not a "debate" where a side is picked.
Except in the context of people debating on an internet forum. Like you say: nothing would change based on what people say here, but what you leave out is that this doesn't mean the people here are universally intelligent, neutral observers analysing objective conditions. On the contrary, most are deeply partial emotional young men with a thousand petty biases that incline them to love whoever united states foreign policy loathes, who're inclined to let Russia off easy because even a good communist cannot resist the aesthetic linkage between Russia and Communism in the west - even if he ought to remember that the modern Russian state was born from blackest reaction it's so easy to displace when, like the USSR, it's a primary foreign policy opponent of the US…

Analysis of geopolitics by the powerless is generally cope, in-group signalling (look how much I hate the US guys! The US in which 90% of the time, I live.) escapism. Why work hard to do any local organising? Why think of a way of doing so that isn't LARP? Russia and China and Iran and, and, and, uhh, the next set of Fijians to mount a coup d'etat will do all the work for you. Look, they even use soviet looking tanks and fighters jets, that's something right? If you squint you can see the T-38s around the washington monument!
The result is then patently facile analysis, like people who's every statement indictates that they believe the Ukraine war is basically one long string of Russian victories, every setback being a decoy, a strategic retreat, etc, etc, and if you say otherwise you're a Ukranian shill. How the dispassionate analyist finds his passions aroused by people presenting the opposite case! how curious!

Taken In good faith you cannot state you are above the pigs if you roll around in the shit with them in the pigsty. Why do they get the agency to decide the frame of argument, why does poor old you have to engage with their framing while dismissing any higher economic analysis. Why let them decide the base ignorance of debate unless you yourself subscribe to their tenets from the opposite end.

Taken as bait Who the fuck said any of this? Where are they beyond the crevices of your own mind? . Where are the posters calling Russia the substitute, where are the posters saying local organising is bad; an effort helped by a fractured world order with less pressure and greater leverage. Most importantly if they do exist - why should they be taken so seriously as to derail analysis?

your counter is built on historical grievance and far worse - petty grievance towards internet people you dont know - rather than any actual analysis of the here and now - if theres a line of thought on how local organising benefits from a unipolar world state it instead of another fucking caricature on how you think the bad people support Russia and even more pathetically if taken true - you take them seriously enough to respond

>>1829902
>Taken as bait Who the fuck said any of this?
People speak through their actions. If someone spends all day talking about the Russia-Ukraine war, they do not have to say that they neglect or reject local organising. Their mind is clearly elsewhere. They might even say they're for it - plenty of idiots who waste their time on other things will say that, in principle, they love and support organising. Their love is theoretical, their support "moral".

I do not think I am above the internet debate, I look at it from above. The arguments themselves are boring, but the motivations of those who make the arguments are socially interesting and can be slotted into general theories about how people work.

>>1829908
I do not care, at this time, about the relative impact of a multipolar versus unipolar world state on local organising. Local organisers have effectively no impact either way - you may as well consider whether an asteroid falling from the sky would be beneficial or harmful, what happens will happen, 仕方がない. I don't think bad people support Russia, I think stupid, desperate people get overly invested in foreign conflicts of all stripes - NAFO freaks have the same basic disease, but I'm not going to kick the outgroup for easy points so people here can feel good about themselves.

What does anti-imperialism means to so called anti-multipolarists, if not dismantling the hegemonic world imperialist system? Weakening it? Building alternatives that allow nations to resist imperial imposition? Is it just being more mean on twitter?

Bloodgasm's post, "anti-imperialism, not multipolarism", do anti-multipolarists not understand how multipolarism came to be? How it was painstakingly built against the constant sabotage of western hegemony? Do they think it just magically appeared like a weather event?

Surely they're not drooling morons, and can at least understand that deliberate planning and half a century of consistent, fraught execution created the conditions we see today.

Must they resort to ridiculous strawmen, such that claiming that their opponents believe that Russia is communist and that building multipolarity will magically bring heaven communism on Earth?

They are not doing that. Capital will just shift eastward or somewhere else. Billionaires and their exuberant wealth aren't confined to the US or EU alone. Multinational corporations span the world over. The world imperialist system includes said "anti-imperialist" countries. They are a part of it, all they want is a bigger share of its profits.
>Weakening it
Nurturing capitalist compradors towards alternate imperialist spheres of influence does not weaken the imperialist system, that is just a feature of it.
>Building alternatives that allow nations to resist imperial imposition?
When everything is still capitalist, there is no alternative being put forth. It is still capitalism.

>do anti-multipolarists not understand how multipolarism came to be?

Yes. It is just late-stage capitalism running its course over the world. It is not socialist, it is not "anti-imperialist" it is a direct result of imperialism in our modern age as it was during Lenin's time. It is a time when competing imperialist nations are re-divvying up the world and are clashing with one another first through proxy then through direct conflict.
>How it was painstakingly built against the constant sabotage of western hegemony
This is a ridiculous claim. Crisis of capitalism have continued throughout all these "polarities". Mutipolarity wasn't manufactured like some secret weapon to smash the west. Its just the conditions of the time we are in. Conditions that can change relatively quickly.
>understand that deliberate planning and half a century of consistent, fraught execution created the conditions we see today
Who planned this? Wtf are you talking about? This is schizo nonsense. Many things created the conditions we have today. To surmise that this all is some perfectly implemented plan decades in the making is insane. So was the fall of the ussr, the 2008 crash, covid, all a part of this grand plan to birth multipolarity too?
>Must they resort to ridiculous strawmen
>such that claiming that their opponents believe that Russia is communist
We have all seen comments stating unironically that modern Russia is socialist. Say what you will about those idiots, but they are squarely in your camp and in your spaces.
>and that building multipolarity will magically bring communism on Earth?
Again there are idiots who say these things and think this. You may disagree, but they are staunch allies of "multipolarity" because multipolarity has nothing to do with building socialism but rather the expansion of various business ventures so it is no surprise opportunists and grifters are its loudest voices.
>Where do these people get these insane talking points?
I can only speak for myself but it is not from internet personalities but from Marxist theory itself. From the study of socialist history. All this fawning over multipolarity, means nothing. The history of class struggle within many nations and time periods is so vast and complex that simplifying it all down to whether or not multipolarity is a thing or whether or not a reigning hegemony is in power, is frankly insultingly stupid. Peak armchair naval gazing. There is so much that needs to be done, so much much ground that needs to be rethreaded from what was lost to revisionism and anti-communist bias, education that must be met, parties that need reconstructing, why waste precious time on tailing nations/geopolitics and following a line that seeks to mainly empower our class enemies with only vague reformist promises to the vast swathes of workers who deserve way more? Everything I've seen about multipolarity flies in the face of all that I have learned about Marxism, is propagated by ex-trots with ties to finance capital, is filled with crypto-fascists, reformists, and revisionists, is praised by reactionary regimes, has been used as an excuse to repress communists, and seeks not to replace the global imperialist system but to nurture its growth under the vulgar guise of "anti-imperialism".

Sorry but complaining to workers that "X government is taking your money and giving it to Israel/Ukraine", ostensibly meant as a means of stirring them up and raising their consciousness, is in reality purely bourgeois rhetoric that does not move beyond the bounds of capitalist politics. Telling workers that the state is putting money to 'the wrong use' amounts to implying there is a 'correct use' of money beyond the function it serves for capital, thus by extension telling workers they have a stake in 'fixing' the distribution of surplus-value.

At least the fight for higher wages serves as an arena for struggle, to sharpen class antagonism and engage workers in strikes and confrontations, as long as communists do not support wage increases as an end in itself and definitely not because that money is 'rightfully' for the workers (it isn't).

With the last aid package the Us Congress seems to communicate that they are 100% behind war for the sake of unipolarity on three different fronts: Ukraine, Taiwan, and Palestine.

This doesn't belong on subcontinental because it includes the 50 million Indian subcontinent people that live outside India and also relates to China. Let me tell you some positives and negative of this rapidly advancing Hindu nationalist global movement.

Positives:
>general emphasis on developing the means of production in India (this has been successful in areas like steel, cars, motorcycles, where India is number 1 or 2 now or fast approaching it)
>tries to be independent of western powers by advocating for a robust nuclear deterrent
>castes/tribes in India are basically occupation based groupings similar to unions or mutual aid groups and there is still an expectation that members of a caste should take care of each other, lend money to each other, etc. Everyday life is extremely collectivist and clan oriented and this may serve as a basis for communist ideas within Hindu Nationalism. Democratic politics has allowed working class castes to become dominant in many states. This kind of organic organizing is not really allowed in China. Castes often move up and down the heirarchy as demonstrated by the rapid advance of the merchant/farmer castes at the expense of the brahmin/warrior castes. There hasn't been a Brahmin leader in India in 20 years and there doesn't seem to be any such leaders on the horizon. Brahmin and warrior caste dominance is basically over as the merchants/farmers have benefitted under capitalism's emphasis on private property.
>open to working with African and other global south countries to advance the agenda of working poor people in the global south (India pushed for inclusion of African union in the G20)
>Modi criticizing and investigating billionaires like Adani for the first time during the last few months. Even Elon Musk finds that Xi Xinping is more desperate to please billionaires than Modi. This is because Xi doesn't have democratic legitimacy so he is extremely dependent on foreign cash inflows.
>A coherent Hindu nationalist movement has given voice and equality to Hindus living overseas, as demonstrated by grand hindu temples being allowed to be built for the first time in Arab countries and Russia. The promotion of VP Kamala Harris and PM Sunak would probably not have happened if Hindus hadn't united against constantly being called demon worshippers by muslims and christians.
>It is keeping China honest by making sure that the countries of central asia and southeast asia are able to maintain their independence and negotiate in a fair way with the Chinese billionaire class.
>During the last six months, Chinese state media like Global times is publishing positive articles on Hindu Nationalism and correctly noticing that it is a movement for national liberation and decolonization. Modi is also sending out some positive statements towards China.

Negatives:
>Many hindu nationalists are embracing anti-gay and anti-trans views because of American and Russian influence.
>Many hindu nationalists are drawn to toxic libertarian ideas and Modi only seems to be making anti-billionaire and pro-welfare remarks because of democratic politics in India. Vivek Ramaswamy and Nikki Haley are good examples of how crypto Hindu Nationalists are pushing even the Trump movement to the right on economic and social issues. Communists inside Hindu nationalism are still a minority but may be more relevant than Communists within the CCP.

Overall, things are pretty grim for those in favor of public control of the means of production but there are green shoots in the Hindu Nationalist movement.

As much as I like the original BRICS, it is clear that Russia, Brazil and South Africa are a lot less relevant than India and China at this point.

There should be a grouping with just India and China at this point. Russia is too involved in white supremacist politics to be trusted at this point.

should we work with fascists? fascists are often able to rally support around a nation from middle and upper classes with a form of consciousness which can make them incredibly useful allies in the war against the west, it also helps that the west is now pushing a lot of reforms that are angering fascists like enforced liberal-ideology, open borders, ect. pic very much related worked out incredibly well for the communist movement and the international proletariat as a whole

every time socialists and fascists have worked together has been to our benefit; the SRs in russia were essentially fascist and the soviets worked with them when they were useful and chinese communists did the exact same thing with the KMT to liberate themselves from japanese oppression then you have groups like the KPD which formed combat squads multiple times to contain nationalist groups that were against the imperialist treaty of versailles and they were crushed for it. these are just provable historical facts.

the different eras of imperialism he identify and the historical perspective he gives on lenin analysis are great, and the hyper imperialism article has tons of information, like the fact the US led imperial bloc have 75% of all military spending on earth.

>doesn't want to watch Communist geopolitical analysis

just cause the man is a member to a communist party doesnt mean much. You havent said shit about what his perspective actually is or why it is valuable, just that his analysis is "clear eyed" and "doesn't dickride BRICS leader", which makes me guess you're some anti multipolarista retard. He doesnt seem to be widely known judging by his views, it isnt a discussion or interview, its just the man talking for one hour and a half, and Im not gonna bother trying to listen to that without you giving more than "huh its good watch it, also he shit on china and russia!"

>WHAT IS MULTIPOLARISM Multipolarism, in its most basic form, posits a world where multiple powers (countries or entities) exist in a state of relative equilibrium, challenging the unipolar hegemony led mainly by the United States post-Cold War. The emergence of China, the reassertion of Russia, the rise of regional powers like India, Brazil, and South Africa, among others, suggest a move towards this multipolar world. BUT is it rly just Capitalism 2: Electric Boogaloo - Neo-Dengism Edition? To what extent is multipolarism just capitalist nationalism for people not in green on this map? If the whole thrust of socialism is now just "America bad" what becomes of the classical socialist goals of workers control of the means of production, and abolishing class society?
the premise of OP is stupid. It is conflating a descriptive theory with a proscriptive one. Yes, the world is indeed becoming more multipolar but that isn't what people complain about when we talk about multipolaristas. Its the sort of retarded westerner who decides that thinks cheerleading the advance of multipolarism on the internet is a substitute for praxis, essentially just a radlib but instead of racial groups, genders, etc. they just substitute countries. This is to the expense of literal socialism. i.e.:

>If the whole thrust of socialism is now just "America bad"
who said that multipolarism is socialism? just because it describes a temporarily better world for many of the most disadvantaged doesn't mean it replaces socialism. the Phillippines gov't and their ilk being tied to China is better than the same exact situation but the US having a monopoly on their potential trade partners. an alternative trade network and currency system would chip away at US hegemony and give poor capitalist countries more options, but not install socialism. It could help sometimes but that is wishful thinking. The only other argument I can think of is that US hegemony would somehow *help* create socialism faster after it collapses, which is even more wishfully thought. So in the meantime i.e. the petroyuan would help free up access to a lot of the oil in the world for non-US aligned countries. That cannot really be judged as good or bad for socialism, but could help poor capitalist countries develop.

Would only take a major incident to sour relations between china and india even more. But for now india wants to play both sides

People have memed BRICS into some kind of neo-Warsaw Pact which seems to oversell the point. If you hear Xi Jinping talk about BRICS, it's not a bloc, it's a rejection of bloc politics. Like you get these mid-sized economies like South Africa, Russia, Brazil and India to increase cooperation on some issues, sign some deals so they have more options instead of IMF/World Bank/America… so the U.S. isn't too happy with that but any current alignment is just "well we didn't sanction the U.S. for Iraq so why should we sanction Russia for Ukraine?" Anybody who thinks BRICS = alliance between India and China is obviously not worth taking seriously.

For the love of- multipolarity isn't directly communist duh nobody says that, but weakening the global hegemony of the USA so that countries building communism or just breaking free from the USA don't have to starve to death from US sanctions blocking countries like Afghanistan from even getting blankets for their staving newborn children. Meanwhile you support these genocidal sanctions because America told you China bad because they didn't follow the book exactly as you like.
>but the nu countries will betray them
China is the lifeline of Cuba. China is the lifeline of North Korea. China is the lifeline of Venezuela. But you don't care about this because it goes against US foreign policy, which is ultimately your agenda. Not even Noam Chomsky was this extreme with it.
>bu-but I didn't say that
Look at what you're saying. Multipolar bad because countries don't fit you utopian standards, thus shouldn't exist. This leaves America as the elite and they will continue sanctioning and bombing countries because somehow China giving medicine to blockaded countries is evil imperialism as bad as what America is doing. It's not very convincing to me.

 

>>1878030
India has, charitably, decided that this is their only window and they can benefit the most at this moment by fully siding against China. I don’t think this is justifiable, but you can easily come to this conclusion with a little motivated reasoning and an media ecosystem with 0 fidelity to fact.

I think opinions on the wisdom of this might change as it starts to become undeniable that China is stronger and it’s strengthening more resilient than asserted. I don’t think fascist Bharat will be able to change course, however.

Honestly the left movement should stop calling the countries that are doing everything they can to empower the third world, building thousands of hospitals, schools, and many other types of infrastructure in poor countries, despite those endeavors being completely unprofitable.
The only reason China cares so much about the people is because it is socialist. If that is what "imperialism" is, then i am imperialist. If your philosophy goes against material reality than it is just noise.

>>1883420
>Felzer does not want to say who exactly the AfD delegation met in China.
>DW's inquiry to the Chinese embassy in Berlin about the interlocutors of AfD MPs also went unanswered.
>For example, AfD foreign policy spokesman Petr Bistron criticized the German government's China strategy, which was presented in mid-July. He described it as "an attempt to >impose the green ideology and geopolitical interests of the USA under the guise of a strategy for German foreign policy".
Marking China as a rival - in addition to a partner and competitor - according to Bistron, is "the result of the US's confrontational course towards China." That confrontation and division is not in Germany's interest as an exporting country."
>According to the assessment of political scientist Wolfgang Schröder from Kassel, the AfD's foreign policy positions are an attempt to distinguish itself from other parties in terms of content. Geopolitically speaking, for the AfD, Germany's traditional ties with the USA - which the party sees as a hegemon - have become obsolete, Schroeder analyzes DW:
>"AfD believes that Washington is more part of the problem than part of the solution to the challenges facing Germany. The AfD believes that the US is an imperial actor whose interests cannot be reconciled with the interests of Germany".

Me, not even knowing who are the AfD, can say they look ok, quite alright. Nothing looks official though, just some tweets and main discourse being against US hegemony

 

"The member of the European Parliament from Saxony, who ranks himself in the right wing of the party, has already attracted attention several times with extremely pro-Chinese statements. Perhaps that is why he is happy to be interviewed by Chinese media, such as the "Global Times" in November 2022. "Anti-Chinese forces in Germany do not represent the interests of Germany," he said and added: "Separation from China would only serve American interests and would cause serious damage to our industry." "

I think it is all pretty interesting

Do not underestimate the stupidity of those you share this liberalist outlook with.
>weakening the global hegemony of the USA
The point should not be to weaken it, but to destroy it. Get rid of the whole capitalist system. That can only be achieved by social revolution, not multipolarity or inter-imperialist rivalries, geopolitical machinations of capitalist powers.
>countries building communism
No one is building communism.
>breaking free from the USA
What happens on the geopolitical front within the imperialist system is secondary to class struggle within each nation.
>Meanwhile you support these genocidal sanctions because America told you China bad because they didn't follow the book exactly as you like.
??? The support or non support of sanctions passed by unaccountable politicians within a bourgeois "democracy" means nothing. I don't support the sanctions, but support means nothing because the people in power are going to push those sanctions regardless. Multipolarity in this instance or the idea that the US will be weakened enough to not do such things is the same vein of liberal accountability politics we see all the time in the west. Its just rebranded reformism. The only way to stop not just those sanctions but the disenfranchisement of oppressed nations is to combat the imperialist system itself, to confront global capitalism itself. Waiting for the US to just stop doing imperialism because other imperialist powers are now contending for more power is just that, pointless waiting for bourgeois powers to hold themselves accountable.

>Multipolar bad because countries don't fit you utopian standards
Multipolarity is beyond the concept of "good" or "bad". Similarly supporting or not supporting it is just as silly. Its just the conditions of the world currently.
>This leaves America as the elite and they will continue sanctioning and bombing countries
They will do that regardless because of capitalist imperialism, weakened or not.
>somehow China giving medicine to blockaded countries is evil imperialism as bad as what America is doing.
Imperialism in the Marxist sense is far more than just invasion and conquest. And in regards to aid. Countries give each other aid all the time, the US even does it. Does that make the US any less imperialist? Less capitalist? No.

indeed. Its the finance capitalists sharing the world. Guess who have the overwhelming amount of finance capital ? As Prashad say, using lenin analysis to deny the fact there is now a single empire is completely missing the point and forgetting to link the theory to the historical context.

>We use too much normative language about who is good and who is bad. We have to be very careful about this normative language, especially in the international sphere. I think we use it too much domestically as well because it’s easily hijacked by demagogues and absolutists. It tends to blind us to the kind of self-awareness that we should have to the plank in our own eye when we’re lecturing to China. And there are lots of planks in our eyes. It tends to blind us to cultural complexity, to the fact that China, again, has its own virtue narrative, to the fact that it’s home of one of the world’s greatest and most ancient ethical traditions.


>It’s not a religious tradition. China is alone among the ancient great civilizations in that it never had a native doctrine of personal salvation. China never had it, the idea that our job on this earth is to live in such a way that we achieve some kind of transcendence. This idea came into China only with Buddhism about 200 AD. China never natively had the idea of a personal creator God, some all-powerful being that wills us into existence. That was foreign to China. It’s very, this worldly, always has been. It begins with the facts of the everyday, but it does have an ethical tradition that it’s articulated upon that. There’s no notion of original sin in China. This was a real stumbling block for the missionaries. Because the gospel doesn’t make sense without the prior aspects of the Mosaic tradition. You have a fall.


>The notion of original sin for the gospel to make sense, when a lot of the early missionaries went to China and said, “You’re forgiven for your sins,” the answer’s, “You’re a rather grim character. What are these sins you speak of? What are you talking about?” Chinese education begins with 人之初芯本善 [Rén zhī chū xìn běn shàn], “Mankind from his inception is, by nature, basically good.” Confucius and Mencius teach that education, which is primarily moral education, is needed to get people to admire and pursue the good. But it experiences itself as an entirely complete sufficient ethical tradition. We need to understand that if we’re going to have an effective China policy. And then there’s the problem Bill and I were talking about beforehand, the problem of consistency. When George Kennan wrote about morality and foreign policy, he said, “If there is such a thing as morality in foreign policy, ‘if,’ then one of its hallmarks must be consistency.” We get somewhere between a D minus and an F on consistency.


>We have to be careful of this very strong normative language. Preaching internationally rarely works. America, with all of its power, adopts the position that we are the good, you are the unenlightened, and therefore you need to listen. Preaching doesn’t work. Even Desmond Tutu of South Africa criticized it. His great line, when the missionaries first came to South Africa, they had the Bibles and we had the land. They said, “Let us pray,” and we closed our eyes. And when we opened our eyes, we had the Bibles and they had the land. This has been the experience of quite a bit of the rest of the world, and we have to be cognizant of that. Lastly, this normative language, ‘bad China,’ is extremely dangerous for our Chinese American and Asian American brothers and sisters.


>It has been a spur to an increase in anti-Chinese and anti-Asian American racial violence over the past several years, and it’s likely to remain so. So, our diplomacy, realizing this during the Cold War, that we need to be strong about what we stand up for, needs to be presented as an invitation to other nations to work together to more fully realize our common human potential. We need to be talking about human problems, not just American virtues. Preaching about American virtues immediately invites an examination of American vices, American failings. How could it possibly be otherwise? That’s a long list, and it tends to be counterproductive. So, don’t over-moralize. Two, don’t over militarize. It’s a Cold War with China. We’ve done AUKUS, we’ve strengthened the Quad, we’ve got the biggest defense budget ever, and now we’ve also convinced NATO that it has a China aspect to its mission.


>What does it say about us that the military aspect of this competition is the easiest for us to do, despite the fact that it’s the most expensive and the most escalatory? “Oh, no, no, no, we couldn’t possibly do a free trade agreement. We couldn’t do CPTPP, that’s beyond our means. But we can fund a new generation of bombers,” right? “We couldn’t possibly fund more diplomats at the State Department. That doesn’t make sense. But we can expand the military budget.” I think that as Christians in the policymaking community, we’ve got a special obligation to ask these questions. I’m not saying that AUKUS or the Quad or any of these are wrong in themselves, it’s a question of balance and proportionality. They’re not matched by efforts on the economic side, on the provision of public goods, and on the diplomacy side.


>The military-industrial complex is alive and well. Remember Dwight Eisenhower, his Cross of Iron speech, Eisenhower himself said that every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. We’re heading for a resurrection of mutually assured destruction, which some of us grew up in. I remember first grade duck-and-cover drills, if others of you may, mutual assured destruction is coming. We have to ask, is it moral to build machines designed to destroy humanity and all the world and threaten people with the use of them, never intending to, hoping not to, while not taking care of a lot of the problems we face domestically and internationally? Who is going to ask that question?

Socialism is when GDP goes up

 

so, is there anything actionable to actually DO once you're a "multipolarist"?
to me it seems like nothing but a posture one adopts in internet arguments.
it's literally just an ideology

 

>>1885273
Ideologues tell me ideology is mandatory. Should I believe them?

 

>>1885273
just start believing in stuff. If you believe hard enough, it will materialize, by the power of the collective consciuness, anything is possible. Make materialism from ideological creation and marxist humanism. This is the path for industrialization maximization

 

>>1885273
What multipolarists do is strategize ways to weaken and erode western imperialism without having to lift a finger in real life. For a long time, the global south has felt very little motivation to actually take action and exploit the imperialists' weaknesses so openly before, but now the paper tiger of western strength is being exposed and people are finding it lacking in substance compared to the strong warhawk image theyre always trying to maintain. In ideological terms, the narrative is bending over backwards trying to compensate for the whirlwind of backlash it's facing in global diplomatic sentiment. Even the idea that BRICS could do anything as a group seemed ridiculous 5 years ago but now we're seeing that the world realizes that they no longer need to live the way we've been living since the soviet collapse. That means big changes are coming, not all for the better, since the rabid dog America will probably bite and scratch before the world restrains it and waits till it digs itself a grave clawing at the earth beneath its feet having nothing else to attack. Somebody might get hurt, and we can only minimize the inevitable damage. Multipolarity is the Non-Aligned Movement of the past meeting with industrialist policy to form a Trotskyist World Revolution against domination of the world by Bretton Woods financial institutions via the ideological vessel of alter-globalization. Countries want to develop economically without having nukes pointed at them to sell oil at a discount to the United $nakes of Amerikkka. Anybody who doesnt play along is on the wrong side of history.

>is there anything actionable to actually DO
support dialogue, cooperation and trade with BRICS, acknowledge their growing importance and support their institutions, shit on nato, support dedollarization, call out new cold war propaganda.
All shit you should be doing already, true. But even within electoralists frameworks, pushing the "what do we gain from being part of the western imperialism" angle can have success especially in europe. Why do we slap taxes on chinese EV but not on US ones, how does that makes sense ? Why should we go to the G7 the west empire club rather than focus on institutions more inclusive of the emergent powers ? Why not cooperate with the chinese in africa rather than act as if they're here to steal our neo colonies and sanction the countries kicking us out ?
the ultra would tell you working for all this is bad and campist because it doesnt imply immediate communism, and worst you will cooperate with the bad capitalists (with a focus on russia and china who are super bad, the new imperialists they say), as if it was identical to working with the US empire.

>it's literally just an ideology

>>1885678
I always thought it was goofy that europe never tried to decouple from america as an imperialist bloc. Nowadays i know that europe's governments were built with loyalty to the usa in mind after WWII through the marshall plan, but my former nationalist sympathies always made me wonder why they didnt "support european industry" by working with whoever they wanted to work with, rather than being loyal atlanticist dogs. Now that the rest of the world is leaving the west behind, we can only make fun of europeans for failing to adapt to modern times and integrate into eurasia with little difficulty or economic instability in the meantime. Actually with AFD threatening rapproachment with eurasia im not even sure the EU wont just split up into a poorer "iron curtain" atlanticist neoliberal ingsoc bastion and a central/eastern european eurasian sphere of influence which is more well off due to better trade. Hell, maybe the west wont even maintain control over the west in the future, and nothing, not even former delineations of control, will seem sacred to us at all.

<literally the next sentence

You unironically are a liberal. BRICS is just another capitalist bloc, this isn't me throwing shade, its just a fact. You have adopted a left liberal eastern worldview. This is campism and frankly neo orientalism. All the things you just put forth, liberals do these things too. You are literally asking for a G7 but eastern. You a for capitalist development, but eastern. Voting for capitalist politicians who are, pro-eastern. Cooperation on who gets to further exploit Africa but instead of the US its China or Russia. This is liberalism. This doesn't stop the US from exploiting, just more opportunities for other capitalist nations to exploit. None of what you said has anything to do with socialism. Actually organizing the revolutionary proletariat, reconstructing communist parties, forming a correct line against global imperialism that doesn't involve bending over backwards for foreign capitalists or emergent compradors. Being against NATO is fine, but this does not make you unique.
>all this is bad and campist because it doesnt imply immediate communism
All this is stupid and campist because it is pro-capitalism masquerading as "left" anti-imperialism. When you are arguing in support of a bloc welcomed a fucking gulf monarchy into its fold, forget about socialism, you are actively fostering reaction just not "western" reaction.

You're the Campist.

You say BRICS is nothing but a capitalist trading bloc. But why dont third world countries deserve the right to trade on equal and fair terms compared to western monopolists?

Economic competition of one country to another country. The USSR participated in international commerce and competed for markets, as said in

The difference is that the west relies on the use of force and intimidation to keep its partnes obedient, but BRICS treat nations with mutual respect and cooperation.

 

>>1885743
Bro just say you are a socdem

 

"economic competition" in the international level is not preferable, on the contrary. But it is inescapable. BRICS countries cannot impose full economic blockade, the ones that can do it are the West and its allies, as demonstrated in the economic embargos for Russia, China, Cuba, Palestine, North korea, venezuela, and many more countries that are targets of the west war crime machine.

""Industrialists"" is not a real ideology, and so compare them to communists and neoliberals is silly.
An industrialist is just another name for bourgeoisie, owners of the means of production. Neoliberals are politicians that serve the class interests of the bourgeoisie and aim to change the state to better suit their own interests. In this sense, they are the two faces of the same coin. Yet their interests not always correlate or are compatible, for they are cannibals of one another. At least industrialists invest, by definition, in industry, the means of production. Neoliberals are focused much more in their own acumulation of capital, keep the state aparatus for themselves, use the system to maintain themselves on top, and sell their national resources and commodities for cheap prices in exchange for foreign protection. One palpable example of this is Mileis Argentina today.
