I've never actually heard a solid, real argument against accelerationism. People just parrot that it's stupid and ultra and "doesn't work", but nobody provides any evidence whatsoever for their claims.

Historically, every major incident of working class uprising followed or occurred in tandem with a major capitalist crisis. WW1 resulted in a wave of socialist uprisings across Europe, mass unionization pushes in just about every civilized part of the planet, and a successful socialist revolution in Russia. WW2 resulted in the takeover of China by victorious communist forces, the mass decolonization of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the socialist liberation of more or less the entirety of Eastern Europe, and unprecedented rates of unionization in the West.

By what possible fucking stretch of the imagination could someone seriously and genuinely argue that accelerating the contradictions of capitalism "doesn't work" to produce communist uprising? Historically, it is the fucking ONLY thing that works. If anything, milquetoast reformism and cautious labor activism have shown themselves to be complete failures to producing anything resembling a strong and effective communist movement.

Only the grinding, breaking gears of surplus value extraction can lead to the liberation of the masses. Anything else is a silly, liberal pipe dream.

I still don't get what most people here concretely mean by accelerationism. Is it advocating for the worsening of labor conditions under capitalism? Because that's just good old neoliberalism. Is it recognizing that only wars bring revolution in most cases? Even Stalin agreed on that. Is it advocating for a world war? If so, how is it any different than Posadism?

Literally all of those would be accelerationist propositions. Marx argued in favor of free trade because it would dramatically escalate the class war; as you pointed out, wars are the quickest and most reliable way to spark a revolution; and, while most accelerationists wouldn't support a world war because they don't want to get nuked, I think Posadism could safely be considered a subtype of accelerationism.

Retards, and only retards, meaning people who are very stupid and don’t know how to read, think that accelerationism is just having things be violent. What does acceleration mean? It means to speed through things from its current pace. People think a more violent society is more “accelerationist” which is incorrect. Society is more peaceful relatively than it was yesterday. Accelerationism just means accelerating through the contradictions and driving them to their conclusions. This is why reforms accelerate contradictions a lot more than not doing anything. Neoliberalism was a massive set back to socialism.

 No.393531

accelerationism sort of makes sense but you cannot use it as an excuse to ignore the building of an organized movement with a party at the head, and that's exactly what i tend to hear "left-accelerationists" do. many of the conditions that bring about revolution are accelerated by war or crisis, but organization itself takes long enough to build up that communists can be really caught with pants down. that happened in germany, hungary, italy, poland, and finland in the exact same crisis period that gave us the soviet union. if you want to go and try start a war, that's all very well. but you can't get to large operations without small ones. isolated clashes - skirmishes - guerrilla raids - mobile divisions - finally, entire armies march. this takes communist parties decades of brutally hard work in all cases.

Crisis could also lead to collapse, and entropically that's by far the favored reaction pathway.

Rightwing accelerationism is granted totally retarded, and you reach it by ignoring or not knowing that diminishing returns and negative feedback exist, and are in fact dominant in the physical world.

Periods of peace, prosperity, and stability are BAD for communist mobilization. Communists cannot organize or agitate a complacent population.
That's why unionization rates were at rock bottom during the Roaring Twenties in the States. There was no reason to join a union or the Communist Party, because people were generally happy with life. The world NEEDED the Great Depression. It was a good thing.

>I've never actually heard a solid, real argument against accelerationism.
The argument was settled in 2017 by Vince Garton. 'Acceleration' is just a term used to describe the present state of capital. There's no such thing as 'L/ACC' or 'R/ACC'—'Acceleration' is unconditional, and because of this no coherent praxis can ever be attributed to it. It is explicitly anti-praxis. Socialist groups from the early 20th century implicitly understood this in their denouncements of the Great War. If you want a period example of what 'Accelerationist' praxis looked like, then look no further than the life of Italian Futurist painter / sculptor Umberto Boccioni. He gleefully enlisted into the Italian Army and was subsequently trampled to death after falling from his horse during a cavalry exercise.

You misinterpret (probably deliberately) what accelerationists advocate. Not open and shameless support for neoliberalism, but rather calculated acts to advance (temporarily) the neoliberal agenda so as to escalate the class war.
This can include endorsing neoliberals over protectionists and isolationists in elections (Biden was the clear accelerationist candidate), organizing for increasing minimum wage workers' so as to speed up automation, and deliberately fanning the flames of international conflicts so as to provoke imperial squabbles. Socialists and communists who go on RT or visit countries hostile to Western imperialism do a great job of the latter.

Jokes aside, even this vision is paltry because it's so vulnerable to ex-post-facto justification. Biden was the acceleration candidate because he wasn't a protectionist, but then if Trump had won then obviously he'd have been the acceleration candidate because he'd be likely to put more effort into stoking conflict with China. When the minimum wage goes up it advances automation, when the trade unions are destroyed it brings class conflict into the open.
You can of course stick rigidly to your own little vision where the dialectic would be further advanced if Gore had become president in 2000, but at that point you're working in a world independent of our own. You might as well just drop the edge and join the Labour campaign for wondering what would've happened if the 1951 election didn't happen.

Accelerationism in this completely vulgar sense has literally nothing to do with the specific, philosophical school of thought that emerged out of the 90s centered around certain personalities like Nick Land with influences from Nietzsche, Deleuze & Guattari, etc. As many others in this thread have repeatedly stated, accelerationism is the simple recognition of the ongoing revolutions in the instruments of production under capitalism, independent of individual persons. You're right in your observation that revolutions do happen at the peak of capitalist fissures but not because singular actors can bring about these conditions (a type of voluntarist thinking) but because of the self-motions that Capital went through. Mark Fisher explained it best, "The Hegelian-Marxist motor of history is then transplanted into this pulsional nihilism: the idiotic autonomic Will no longer circulating idiotically on the spot, but upgraded into a drive, and guided by a quasi-teleological artificial intelligence attractor that draws terrestrial history over a series of intensive thresholds that have no eschatological point of consummation." If anything Land has repeatedly denied human agency by being the most virulent philosophical anti-humanist he could be, read Machinic Desire.

The soviets were originally workers' organizations started by the Mensheviks to circumvent the Czarist ban on unions. They gradually radicalized over the course of WWI, and then in 1917 the power vacuum caused by the abdication of the Czar and the weakness of the Kerensky government and the bourgeoisie allowed them to seize factories and propel the Bolsheviks into power.

"Accelerating the contradictions" is unnecessary, since crisis under capitalism is inevitable. Actual praxis would involve identifying forms of organization that can radicalize and empower members during times of crisis, and identifying crises large enough to weaken the bourgeois order enough to take power. If the latter does not occur, then there is no opportunity for revolution and we'll all end up as liberals, which is the fate of most post-WWII communists.

I'm not talking about bourgeois media, I'm talking about the people. There had been a big anti-war movement until Obama somehow made it fizzle out, while warmongering harder than Bush.

No one but the regular anti-war groups (which did criticize Obama) actually paid attention to Trump's war crimes.

>Could you expand why it's bogus? We are powerless. At best Americans can advocate to end blockades, wars and embargos.
It's just an attempt to give capitalists' (and their vulgar economists') fixations on the 'invisible hand' of the market a more 'inhuman' , 'alien' or 'foreign' (hint: non-white) character. If the British and American masses had the political will to end blockades, wars and embargos then we wouldn't have spent the past decade arguing over the apparently 'mystical' or 'occult' (self-)reproduction of capital. It's all predicated on the assumption that history is no longer in our hands, as if it's reaching an unintended apotheosis and we've just been swept away by the tide. There's a very interesting nihilism to it that, as unfortunately made evident by those who still identify as 'Accelerationists' after the Post-CCRU / Urbanomic / #CaveTwitter milieu's heyday from 2014-2017, gives way to a kind of fatalism rooted in nothing more than smug pretension. "Biden is Accelerationist! […] Trump is Accelerationist!"—who gives a fuck? Anything can be retroactively attributed to 'Acceleration'—which obviously isn't conducive to a coherent praxis. In fact, as I already said earlier, it's explicitly anti-praxis. It shouldn't come as a surprise the most interesting people that used to be associated with that milieu have more or less become Marxist-Leninists now. They took what Nick Land said to heart: "Neo-China arrives from the future."

>Historically, every major incident of working class uprising followed or occurred in tandem with a major capitalist crisis
You think contradictions of capitalism arising from unperturbed inadvertent preconditions and natural cycles is the same thing as some idiots trying to bring about something superficially appearing to be a contradiction of capitalism through accelerationist means?

>>I've never actually heard a solid, real argument against accelerationism.
2020 is your argument. Remember over a year ago we had lockdowns, stock market crashes and George Floyd protests. This board was celebrating it as the end times for capitalism. There was a sense of optimism that things would change for the better and a revolutionary moment might come. It was thought that capitalism could not make it out of this mess.

But it did. It built back better. Accelerationism didn't work in 2020.

accelerationism is idealist and infantile because it assumes there is a concrete amount of capitalist development that will inevitably led to a revolution all while ignoring the organization of the proletariat and how it can be affected by the same developments that in the mind of the accelerationists are supossed to cause the end of capital anyways OP is not even talking about accelerationism since "accelerating the contradictions of capitalism" is literally what all communist movements have done and is inherent to their nature to be "accelerating" elements since revolution is not even possible without them
