Realistically speaking, what are the chances of a communist revival? When?

Looking at communist parties worldwide they don't tend to have much support and raising consciousness seems to be an eternal mission rather than a milestone. What do we have to wait for? WW3?

There is hundreds of thousands of books justfying so many things, including all those ideal projects, ideas, etc. It would be easier if people actually readed things they dislike so much, and made serious analyzes about them, instead of just saying random biased opinions.
But then again, this is a casual imageboard. There is no consensus, nor a plan, nor anywhere to go. We will need to change the world the hard way

ah yes my nonsense and completely unfounded belief that Marxism and Anarchism are inherently hostile to each other. Wherever could I have gotten THAT idea, please ignore Marxist hostilities occurring in 1872, 1917, 1931, and 1936, as well as any and all Marxist repression of Anarchists in territories under their control.

This is of course as opposed to your rational and level-headed view that we will all live harmoniously and happily with our Marxist 'comrades', contrary to the mountains of evidence suggesting (to put it lightly) otherwise.

I think that the fall of Communist States, especially the USSR has blackpilled many people on future prospects. Still Socialism itself remains popular among the youths in the West, so there is hope in pushing the Overton Window majorly to the left in the next 20 years.

I think one of the biggest impediments towards socialism developing at this stage is that socialists haven't been able to articulate a hopeful vision of the future to strive for. It's able to correctly identify what's wrong and how to fix it, but the prevailing capitalist view that the future will just be a slightly better version of now hasn't been displaced.

There's a big chance of communism making a comeback in the West if the communists actually stopped worshipping revolutions that had to adapt to concrete historical reality (autocracy, colonialism, massive peasant population and proletarian minority) and actually studied the Paris Commune and the concrete steps in took and those it didn't - a synthesis between Communardism and Leninism, if you will. But we'd all rather LARP bolsheviks instead. It's simply much easier.

Most people are very retarded and reactionary without firm beliefs see how many still want to do for Biden despite him having over 40.000 confirmed deaths on his shoulder just in Gaza alone. Bernie is a shitlib zionist who sold out like Biden and they don't care. People only hear "free healthcare" and "tax le billionaire by a few more percent" as if that would remove the issue of everyone inside and out getting fucked by imperial power that is the US.

Yeah, it's discrediting itself, and while I think that is creating some of the cracks that are allowing socialist optimism to trickle through, I don't think that's enough.

I think part of what made socialism so popular in the 19th and 20th centuries was that the trapping of its success were very material and readily apparent. For most people access to education and simple things like electricity were unattainable luxuries, and when socialists were able to provide them that's something very concrete to point to.

The same thing doesn't really apply any more, at least in the West where material abundance is everywhere, for all the good it does. The Bolsheviks were able to propose and produce a really radical new society, but so far I don't think that vision has materialized among the modern Communists.

You have to realize that the Russian Revolution will always be brought up and it is not worshipping to defend the overwhelming positive that came from it. We still have ML states like Cuba as well. Also the majority of communists in the west are euro-communist who condemn the Soviet experience. So the strategy that you are talking about has already been tried. Guess what our opponents are always going to say that we killed millions or mass starvation like Venezuela and the like. It's up to us to take from the past and to give a vision for the future.

>the strategy that you are talking about has already been tried
When? Where? Which organization took in its programme the demands of the Commune? Which organization took Iskra's organizatory plan and applied it to its own circumstances? Where's the autocracy in the West? Where are the colonial powers exploiting the people? Where are the competing warlords? Where's the civil war? Where are the worker's soviets?

Do you even realize how ridiculous you sound? Nothing in the west has been tried sans a lowly combination of narodnaya-volya-ist terrorism + the worship of intellectual individualism.

By revolutionary worship I mean exactly what you just did - Marxism-Leninism is the religious dogma rigid stalinists love to push around thinking that there's a one-size-fits-all approach to revolution.

<b-but ML is a method not a dogm-

shut the fuck up and read the early organizational texts of the RSDLP (including Stalin) instead of thinking that degenerate state building ideologies are our shining path to communism.

Most socialist organizations have the demands of the Commune.
>Which organization took Iskra's organizatory plan and applied it to its own circumstances?
A handful of socialist in their own countries material conditions yet there seems to be no success. This was tried in the 20th century with the IWW and the CPUSA's Bill of Rights socialism. Those two are just the icing on the cake.Thats what I mean when I say your strategy isn't unique because they already were tried and not successful. There are multiple reasons why there is no success but communist "worshipping" previous revolutions are not the reason.
>Where's the autocracy in the West?
Do you believe that the West has no authoritarian tendencies
>Do you even realize how ridiculous you sound? Nothing in the west has been tried sans a lowly combination of narodnaya-volya-ist terrorism + the worship of intellectual individualism.
I can say that you sound ridiculous by saying that communism will make a comeback if they:
>actually stopped worshipping revolutions that had to adapt to concrete historical reality
That is not why communism is not successful in the west. You are literally one step away from saying "not real socialism" which already makes people skeptical of you when you say "My socialism will work unlike the red tsarists". Now bringing a photo of Lenin in Chicago is larpy but it's another level if you condemn that revolution.
>By revolutionary worship I mean exactly what you just did - Marxism-Leninism is the religious dogma rigid stalinists love to push around thinking that there's a one-size-fits-all approach to revolution.
Reread the post.Where did I say that Marxism-Leninism is a one size fits all? I am simply saying that those socialist revolutions will be brought up and you should talk about the overwhelming positive that came from the experience. There were mistakes but they were minor compared to the positives it gave. There is an anarchist in these threads that defends Marxist Leninist states and can say that the US won't have an ML revolution which is solid and understandable. Socialism will look different in countries with differing conditions
