>The previously malnourished group showed substantial deficits on all outcomes relative to healthy controls (p&lt0.0001). IQ scores in the Intellectual Disability range (&lt 70) were 9 times more prevalent in the previously malnourished group (OR=9.18; 95% CI=3.50-24.13). Group differences in IQ of approximately one standard deviation were stable from adolescence through mid-life.
>Moderate to severe malnutrition during infancy is associated with a significantly elevated incidence of impaired IQ in adulthood, even when physical growth is completely rehabilitated. An episode of malnutrition during the first year of life carries risk for significant lifelong functional morbidity.

A friend did some work in African philosophy. Might be an interesting read. Connects to socialism in the second post in this series.

>Re-Fanging the Python" is a series of posts drawn from my undergraduate thesis project, which is a comparative analysis of Akan and Western European Enlightenment ontological assumptions, especially as far as they relate to personhood. More broadly, it is an attempt to move towards a way of doing comparative philosophy that avoids the sterile, quasi-anthropological trappings of an academia that largely recognizes that it is dominated by Western, Euro-Christian modes of thought, but sees the solution as a museum of discourses in appropriately labeled vats (tour guides providing plenty of qualifiers that the museum itself is of course a discursive system while the guests tap on the glass). A sincere engagement with the reality of difference requires the acknowledgement of the real histories, divergences, and struggles constitutive of difference – and crucially, a serious consideration of the positioning and responsibility of that engagement. What does it mean to do a responsible comparison of European and African thought? I don't think it means maintaining a catalogue of cultural novelty. The patronizing attitude in which the academy refuses real contact (questioning, debating, comparing) with the philosophy of a people who have been and remain under colonialism, neocolonialism, and imperialism, undermines the effective existence of such a philosophy, bleeding the life from it and pinning it to a cork-board with the rest of the samples on their way to the British Museum.



>The python is a holy animal across various West African traditional religions, and the slaughter of pythons and defacing of the temples where they were kept was a common tactic among European missionaries. "Re-Fanging the Python" then refers to an attempt to not only acknowledge African philosophy as existing and worthy of study, but actively working towards conditions that allow the exercise of its potency and vitality, something to challenge and be challenged.

>>2432
yeah basically, Ethiopia and Somalia were rivals but they were both in the USSR's sphere so in-fighting was much lower stakes for the USSR. look at the influence of the USSR in africa more generally and it's clear that they were more interested in bringing new leaders that depended on them into the bloc than they were in supporting any kind of escalation or overt anti-colonial action. USSR refused to get involved in the Angolan wars and Cuba only got involved against the USSR's warnings not to, and generally did not leverage their interest nearly as much as they could have in favor of Nkrumah, Lumumba, Sankara, etc. im not "anti-USSR" or anything, its not a "gotcha", but too often people have adopted a very simplistic meme view of the USSR as some unerringly principled anti-imperialist #Resistance, or at least as a state that had to engage with realpolitik but consistently did so towards the ends of socialism and revolution, which just doesnt pan out in the history as well as we might like it to. which you don't need to draw any conclusions from other than that the actions of an immense political apparatus is not guided by its professed ideology.

the story of the Ethiopian Revolution is genuinely tragic, and the USSR is not on the right side of it. a genuine popular and socialist led revolution against Selassie's feudal government led to the Derg junta, where formerly apolitical officers seized control of the government and forced Haile Selassie from power. the Derg were not socialists, and had been buying arms from the US and continued to do so following their seizure of state power. their status as a military junta that took advantage of the popular revolution and unrest, and was willing to align themselves with the west if it benefitted them, was initially debated in the USSR when deciding whether the USSR should recognize, let alone support, the provisional Derg government. also relevant here is the concern that recognizing the Derg could sour relations with Soviet aligned Somalia, because it was still unclear what the Derg's policy on Somalia would be. as the situation stabilized and clear leadership emerged the USSR ended up extending friendly diplomacy to the Derg after they began to call themselves Marxist-Leninist, im not exactly sure on the details but presumably because the revolutionary unrest that had allowed them the opportunity to seize power was undertaken by communist workers and peasants, many of them in explicitly Marxist-Leninist parties. but the Derg, which remained in effect a military junta, suppressed all other communist parties and organizations. the EPRP (a Marxist-Leninist party that had played a very significant role in organizing and working with the Ethiopian workers and peasantry preceding the 74 revolution) would become their biggest enemy in the approaching civil war due to their uncompromising opposition to the Derg, claiming they were an opportunist military junta. but even the All-Ethiopia Socialist Movement (Marxist-Leninists, also played a significant role in preparing the ground for and fighting in the 74 revolution) who had recognized the Derg's leadership and joined the Worker's Party the Derg established, were purged (massacred) in 77 after they were suspected of being more loyal to the worker's party than they were to the military. the USSR retained their financial, military, and diplomatic support of the Derg throughout this whole period while condemning the communist groups that had laid the revolutionary groundwork for a clique of military officers to seize the state. the Derg did take a lot of measures to modernize Ethiopia, some of which were indisputably good, some absolutely disastrous.

im not attributing some kind of evil intention to the USSR here, but at the least it was just bad diplomacy, and bad realpolitik. they made a virtue out of necessity and supported opportunists even when there was a popular socialist revolution happening in the country.

that said, Cuba and Burkina Faso also began as populist military juntas that were willing to take aid from wherever they could get it, and had no explicit ideological alignment. but i think they are very different cases, because Castro by all accounts seems like he shifted from Soviet aligned realpolitik to genuine investment in a socialist project, and Sankara was overthrown (by professed Marxist-Leninists, with Gaddafi's green light, by the way) specifically because he moved away from vague junta populism towards a real revolutionary movement.
>>

 No.2441

>>2440
my bad i mispoke, Cuba wasnt a military junta obviously, and i think its longevity and commitment to socialism compared to somewhere like Burkina Faso or Ethiopia can be attributed to the fact that even if it wasnt explicitly a socialist revolution at first, it was a popular revolution with strong links between the leadership and the workers and peasantry

>Will Numsa do as it says, and launch a workers' party with the intention of mounting a serious political fight against the ANC-SACP alliance? And not just on the electoral front?

>And are the discussions within Numsa over whether the new party should be a "mass" party or a "vanguard" party meaningful - that is, based on a real understanding of the Leninism they claim to adhere to, or is this just abstraction? Will Numsa be misled and diverted in its purpose by its relations with some of the very abject reformists who the leadership has chosen to "learn from", or those who pretend to have revolutionary credentials, but are not what they seem? (Brazil's Lula-ists, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) from Kerala, Chavez-ites, or Syriza). It is impossible not to be tempted to make a negative assessment on the future of the "Numsa moment", based on its chosen political consorts and its reluctance to engage with revolutionary tendencies like Trotskyism, other than in the derived form it takes in South Africa - the organisations of WASP, from the Socialist Party in Britain and the International Socialists, from the SWP in Britain, among others.


>For now, however, Irvin Jim continues to give more or less the right answers. This in itself, is an inspiration to potential worker activists.


>For instance, when asked in an interview with Real News (an American independent left news channel) if Numsa would organise a new "labour federation" he answered: "One thing we shall not back off, is to take up the struggle to ensure that we unite South African workers, because they must continue to be a compass, because it is only the working class that is capable of carrying the revolution to its logical conclusion… It is the most exploited. And if it has got a clear political organ, which is a vanguard party that raises this levels of consciousness to that of a class that exploit it, that working class can be consistent for a revolution."


>He also added :"we call on our own members to join the worldwide movement of the international working class - we know that we're dealing with capital and capitalism not locally - it is international in character."

As a Finn, I've gotta specify that our country had been an autonomous part of imperial Russia with a surprisingly independent and developed economy and traditions and institutions of self-rule extending much farther back than 1917. Hell, our declaration of independence was basically just a statement that "yeah the existing government continues with some adjustments, but basically we ain't gonna report to Moscow or Petrograd any more, so you know". Hell, half our laws are from the 19th century, because governmental business just continued "as usual".
What I'm saying is that we were more or less a developed country from the get-go, right next to the prosperous imperial cores of Europe with domestically owned primary and secondary industries to trade on an equal basis with said imperial heartland.

I dont know enough about the economical history of Finland

&ltNow lets go to Africa:
In 2012, the last year of recorded data, developing countries received a total of $1.3tn, including all aid (125bn dollars), investment, and income from abroad. But that same year some $3.3tn flowed out of them. In other words, developing countries sent $2tn more to the rest of the world than they received. If we look at all years since 1980, these net outflows add up to an eye-popping total of $16.3tn – that’s how much money has been drained out of the global south over the past few decades. To get a sense for the scale of this, $16.3tn is roughly the GDP of the United States

What this means is that the usual development narrative has it backwards. Aid is effectively flowing in reverse. Rich countries aren’t developing poor countries; poor countries are developing rich ones.

What do these large outflows consist of? Well, some of it is payments on debt. Developing countries have forked out over $4.2tn in interest payments alone since 1980 – a direct cash transfer to big banks in New York and London, on a scale that dwarfs the aid that they received during the same period. Another big contributor is the income that foreigners make on their investments in developing countries and then repatriate back home. Think of all the profits that BP extracts from Nigeria’s oil reserves, for example, or that Anglo-American pulls out of South Africa’s gold mines.

Most people blame the loss of money on "corruption"
There is certainly no denying that corruption is a problem.

According to the World Bank, corruption in the forms of bribery and theft by government officials, the main target of the UN Convention, costs developing countries between $20 billion and $40 billion each year [9].
That’s a lot of money – and this figure is certainly large enough to warrant our attention as an obstacle to development. But if we broaden our view a little bit and put this figure into perspective, a very different story emerges. As it turns out, this kind of corruption is an extremely small proportion – only about 3 percent – of the total illicit flows that leak out of the developing world each year.
By contrast, the Washington-based Global Financial Integrity (GFI) calculates that up to 65 percent of total illicit outflows have to do with corruption of a very different sort: commercial tax evasion. And when we look at commercial tax evasion, the neat corruption narrative that Transparency International tells begins to fall apart.

But by far the biggest chunk of outflows has to do with unrecorded – and usually illicit – capital flight. GFI calculates that developing countries have lost a total of $13.4tn through unrecorded capital flight since 1980.

‘Illicit outflow’ is just a fancy name for any illegal movement of money from one country to another. It could be a corrupt official siphoning public funds into a secrecy jurisdiction, or it could be a multinational corporation shifting their money offshore in order to avoid paying taxes. There are lots of reasons that people spirit money across borders.
According to GFI, each year up to $1.1 trillion flows illegally out of developing countries and into foreign banks and tax havens. This is an almost unimaginable sum – more than the total amount of foreign direct investment that developing countries receive each year ($858 billion in 2013), and eleven times the amount of official aid they receive ($99.3 billion in 2013). And these outflows have been increasing at a rapid pace over the past decade, growing at about 6.5 per cent per year.

Between 2004 and 2013, developing countries lost a total of $7.8 trillion to illicit outflows. It’s an enormous problem. How does this happen? These illicit outflows work through two main channels: hot money and trade misinvoicing. Basically, corporations – foreign and domestic alike – report false prices on their trade invoices in order to spirit money out of developing countries directly into tax havens and secrecy jurisdictions, a practice known as “trade misinvoicing”. Usually the goal is to evade taxes, but sometimes this practice is used to launder money or circumvent capital controls. In 2012, developing countries lost $700bn through trade misinvoicing, which outstripped aid receipts that year by a factor of five.

>In 2013, hot money accounted for 19.4 per cent of total illicit outflows from developing countries, or $211 billion.

Hot money is a term used to describe the rapid movement of capital from one country to another in order to speculate on interest-rate and exchange-rate differences. For example, if the United States looks likely to raise its interest rates, someone with investments in Nigeria might rapidly move their money to the US in the hope of making a quick profit. These rapid, speculative movements of capital are only possible because of the financial deregulation that has been promoted across the developing world over the past few decades by the World Bank, the IMF and free-trade agreements, and they can lead to serious market instability – particularly in small economies. But they also provide an avenue for moving money illegally across borders.

>In 2013, trade misinvoicing accounted for 80.6 percent of illicit outflows from developing countries, or $879 billion.

Trade misinvoicing, for its part, involves sending money into secret offshore accounts by cheating the trade system. For example, imagine that a South African firm has agreed to buy $1 million of steel from a British firm. The South African firm requests that the British firm send the invoice for $1 million to a tax haven. The tax haven then rein-voices the South African firm at more than the agreed value of the goods – say $1.5 million. The South African firm pays the $1.5 million to the tax haven. The tax haven then pays $1 million to the British firm and diverts the rest to an offshore account. As far as the tax authorities in South Africa can tell, the transaction appears legitimate – but the South African firm has successfully spirited $500,000 into an offshore account where it will never be taxed. While this practice amounts to a serious crime, tax havens nonetheless openly advertise their reinvoicing services and offer to assist firms in setting up shell companies to launder money and evade taxes. A quick Google search for ‘re-invoicing services’ turns up dozens of companies located in the Seychelles, Mauritius and so on, ready and willing to help traders execute their crimes.


In other words, for every $1 of aid that developing countries receive, they lose $24 in net outflows. These outflows strip developing countries of an important source of revenue and finance for development. The GFI report finds that increasingly large net outflows have caused economic growth rates in developing countries to decline, and are directly responsible for falling living standards.

Who is to blame for this disaster? Since illegal capital flight is such a big chunk of the problem, that’s a good place to start. Companies that lie on their trade invoices are clearly at fault; but why is it so easy for them to get away with it? In the past, customs officials could hold up transactions that looked dodgy, making it nearly impossible for anyone to cheat. But the World Trade Organisation claimed that this made trade inefficient, and since 1994 customs officials have been required to accept invoiced prices at face value except in very suspicious circumstances, making it difficult for them to seize illicit outflows.
Still, illegal capital flight wouldn’t be possible without the tax havens. And when it comes to tax havens, the culprits are not hard to identify: there are more than 60 in the world, and the vast majority of them are controlled by a handful of western countries. There are European tax havens such as Luxembourg and Belgium, and US tax havens like Delaware and Manhattan. But by far the biggest network of tax havens is centered around the City of London, which controls secrecy jurisdictions throughout the British Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories.

In other words, some of the very countries that so love to tout their foreign aid contributions are the ones enabling mass theft from developing countries.

MPLA: They are awful they are robbing the country. The MPLA was never marxist they just wanted the Cubans and USSR as Sugar daddies. Under Structural adjustment IIRC.

FRELIMO and SWAPO are bad too. But SWAPO will soon be out. Hopefully Job Amupanda runs for president. And the ANC were fucking sellouts. Dont know how I feel about the EFF but they certainly are the strongest socialist movement on the continent.

Yuck. Lmao I find it funny that Western Leftist support the Derg. Mengistu literally learned about Marx from a 20 something year old engineering student.

The “Derg” were not socialists they were unfortunately a Soviet backed military dictatorship ran by a psychopath.

Calling them socialist is an insult too the many Ethiopian students that worked with the Black Panthers, Viet Cong, and other Socialist movements of the time.

The Ethiopian student movement led the resistance against Halle Sellaise YEARS before the coup. But the army overthrew him instead. The students were prepared to fight the army as well till the army said they were willing to learn about “Marxism”

Half of the students believed them and worked with the Derg and half did not. Mengistu was attacked by the some students and newspapers for being repressive and anti-union so they led a struggle against him.

Mengistu was manipulative and killed the socialist students that were anti-Derg. Then when they were done attacked the students that were pro-Derg and teaching him Marxism.

Since the student movement was so small and the Red Terror was hidden the Western communists didn't notice and supported him. This is why Castro was friends with Mengistu and supported Somali intervention.

FRELIMO was so based under Machel. But after he was killed (Apartheid South Africa shot down his plane) his successor couldnt take down REANMO (Rhodesian millitants and glowies) so they signed a peace treaty were they could join parliament and have democracy. The next president then did free market reforms and now the current president is a typical African despot. Its a sad tale.

The Angolan Bush War is probably my favorite historical communist movement of all time and is the best example of proletarian internationalism. The USSR, Cuba, the Warsaw Pact, Libya, China, the DPRK all the liberation movements in Africa all sent arms to Namibian revolutionaries to fight the South African goverment. SWAPO beat the SAF mercernaries, Rhodesians, and Savimbi.

Angolan War didnt end till 2003 but by that time it was basically glowie vs glowie since the main revolutionaries in the MPLA were dead.

About Tigray I know even less. Apparently they have an opposition party which is Hoxhaist or some shit like that? I could be confusing it with a completely different country/party.

Quick History Lesson: After WW2 after Italy was defeated….and Eritrea which has its own distinct culture from Ethiopia was given to Halle Selliase as a gift. Eritreans didnt like this and rose up and created the EPLF. The EPLF was cool but they became the PFDJ after the USSR fell and basically stopped being a workers state and is a dictatorship. Has some socialist elements but its not worth defending at ALL.

The TPLF was a liberation movement against the Derg it was Hoxhaist but as soon as Washington started pouring money to them they became there client. They defeated the Derg (EPLF did all the work tbh) and them the US used them to attack the Somalis, Eritreans and Oromos even though they were helped by them. They ruled for 27 years till Abiy Ahmed created the Prosperity Party and TPLF got pissy and succeded. They are Washington backed.

Support Oromia and OPLA and some parts of the Eritrean resistance (the ones that are not NED or glowie). Not TPLF.

They do have some white party members though. Maybe EFF could use them more in party campaigns

It's way out of the news cycle, but it's really funny how they caught Charles Taylor ordering his political party around from prison like a mafia boss, did any prosecutions come of that?

Genuine question, is there a way to even interact with subsaharan africunts?

I only know about their shitty nigerian taringa-reddit-chan forum but is about impossible to talk to any of them that are active in ground zero of anything.

Normalization is not with Israel . Normalization is with the West and is with the US . Who normalizes with the West and with US has already normalized with israel . Gulf states like UAE and Bahrain do not want to normalize with Israel . They do not seek to please Israel , they want to please the US and the West , and they are doing US bidding. Normalization is with USA, and identification is with USA and the West , and not with Israel . If US wants those countries to be at odds with israel , they will do as they are told without hesitation. This whole operation is surrender to the US and the West rather than surrender to Israel, and there is a difference between surrendering to this and surrendering to that because surrendering to the US and the West has already happened long ago which made the surrender to israel instantaneous . This normalization happening between Gulf countries and israel has this in particular and it is that this normalization is closer to an alliance than to mere normalization. It involves the merging of firms and companies and the investment in banks and cooperation in all fields including artistic fields, and includes basically security coordination .All this had already happened with US and the West, and when it happened with israel the road was already paved . Now, Sudan has started the process of recognition and normalization, also pushed by US and according to a deal with USA by virtue of which Sudan was removed from the list of terror . In Lebanon , we are not able to see that our problem is US, and the rule that is allied with the Resistance is not identifying this enemy to be the western powers so as to be able to deal with the situation and to be able to overcome the difficulties . Unfortunately , this is not happening , we are still betting on the west , and this is a great defect that is hindering us from seeking real solutions. It is US that is declaring this war on Lebanon and we have to admit it if we are to do something about it.

In internet meme terms, saying that someone is "glowing" means you are accusing them of working for the CIA or any related intelligence agency.
This term originated from a schizophrenic computer programmer who made videos talking about how he used his car to run over CIA agents who "glow in the dark".

Eritrea is not marxist leninist anymore its just a general anti-west dictatorship. There is a large smear plan to get western intervention in that area of the world but god dang dont romanticize Eritrea.
