More conservative proles will die because they think not getting vaccinated is somehow resisting big gunbmint.
Dems will strengthen power as a result. Dems will feel empowered to do what want to do instead of hedging their bets, will become even bigger corporate whores than before.

China will continue to rise but there will be more tension between capitalist growth and welfare for the people
America will stagnate, Republicans will sweep elections and Biden will be a lame duck for the next 2 years, DNC will blame progressives for their defeat instead of the fact they had no real political program
Europe will continue to trend rightwards, they will buy Russian gas and Ukraine will be further isolated and retreat into further reaction
Africa will continue to benefit from Chinese investments but it's questionable whether they are helping the people that much
Latin America will trend leftwards and will attempt to further deepen relations between pink tide countries into some kind of regional bloc
Russia will continue to sell oil and gas and maybe get a little more of Ukrainian territory - nobody will do anything
China and America will NOT have a big war, China will NOT invade Taiwan, there will not be any big wars or major habbenings, things will just continue to decline for the first world and rise for China and their allies.
COVID will not be eliminated despite a fourth booster being out, COVID jabs will become a yearly or twice-yearly thing like the flu shot, but vaccine mandates will weaken due to apathy and at least 25% of people in the West will remain not vaccinated. COVID will just become 'the new normal' and Western leaders will admit that there is no way to eradicate it, even though in Asia they successfully manage every major outbreak to stop it becoming endemic.
TLDR; Nothing much will happen of great importance, the current trends will just continue. Boring prediction maybe but accurate.

My Official 2022 Predictions
I decided to post my official 2022 predictions based on a unbiased analysis of Domestic Politics, International Relations/Geopolitics, Economics, Sports prognostication, and Epidemology below. Please Enjoy! American Politics: 1) The Biden administration fails to have any significant legislative victories due to stonewalling from Senators Manchin and Sinema, demoralizing the Democratic voter base and keeping Bidens Approval rating underwater. 2) The Democrats lose both Houses of Congress in the Midterm elections, with the Republicans gaining 30 seats in the House for a 243-192 House majority (their largest since 1928), and 3 seats in the Senate (GA, AZ, and NV) followed immediately by Joe Manchin switching parties for a 54-46 Senate majority. The generic ballot went 52-46 in favor of the Republicans, with Exit polls showing Whites going 62-37 Republican (70% of the Electorate), Blacks going 87-12 Democratic (12% of the Electorate), Hispanics going 61-36 Democratic (10% of the Electorate), Asians going 59-39 Democratic (4% of the Electorate), and others going 54-44 Democratic (4% of the Electorate), with the Democrats weak performance attributed to low turnout from their demoralized Base of Non-White and Young Voters, combined with high turnout from energized White ConservatIves. 3) Trump announces his 2024 Presidential campaign immediately after the Midterms and swiftly receives endorsements from every prominent Republican, with the first polls showing him tied with Biden, and slightly leading Harris, with a decisive Electoral College advantage (he’s leading in all the States he won in 2016 plus Nevada). 4) Biden doesn’t make up his mind if he will run for reelection, due to combined concerns that he is unsure that he wants to put himself and his family through another harsh presidential campaign against Trump, that Harris is unelectable due to the Sexism and Racism of the Swing State electorates, and that the rest of the Democratic bench is even weaker then her, thus leaving the Democrats in a state of limbo heading into the 2024 presidential election. International Affairs/Geopolitics: 1) Despite numerous sabre-rattling from both sides, their is no Military conflict between Russia and Ukraine, with the current Russian buildup proving to be merely a snap training excercise that was hyped up by the International News media. This is largely due to the fact that Putin’s Russia is integrated into the Global Capitalist Economy and a Invasion of Ukraine would prevent Russia from exporting Oil/Gas to Europe, freeze the Western financial Assets of Russian Oligarchs (including Putin himself), and knock Russian Banks out of SWIFT, thus giving Significant impetus to avoid serious conflict. 2) Their is no Chinese Invasion of Taiwan, due to Chinas integration into the Global Capitalist Economy and role as a source of cheap labor for American Corporations. 3) The Korean Peninsula is extremely quiet. 4) The Indo-Pakistani and Indo-Chinese border disputes remain contained to low-level skirmishes and nothing more. 5) The Iranian Nuclear Deal falls apart, with massive sanctions reimposed on Iran, but despite initial fears, this doesn’t lead to War as Israel and the US both secretly know that Iran’s Nuclear Program is for purely civilian purposes, and that Iran is a paper tiger that poses absolutely no threat to either of them, making a War a complete waste of time compared to the easier strategy of just sanctioning Iran until the regime inevitably collapses. 6) The Syrian Civil War remains a De-facto frozen conflict. 7) The Yemeni Civil War remains a De-facto stalemate with the Houthis controlling the North and the Pro-Saudi forces controlling the South. 8) Despite the dire predictions of International News Media, Afghanistan has its most peaceful year since 1978, with remnants of the Northern Alliance and ISIS-K only mustering low-level insurgencies, due to the extremism of the latter limiting the pool of support, and the relatively Moderate Taliban government (by Islamist standards) hindering any support for the restoration of the old Pro-American regime. 9) The Ethiopian government successfully avoids Collapse by crushing both OLA and TPLF forces, with the Tigray region itself recaptured by the end of 2022, resulting in large-scale genocide of ethnic Tigrayans that is largely ignored by the International News Media. Global Economy: 1) The Dow Jones Industrial Average reaches 40,000 points by the end of 2022. 2) Most countries have above average GDP growth. 3) The Inflation fears prove to be largely unfounded, with Gas prices starting to significantly decline due to both increased production causing excess supply and falling demand caused by the rapid growth in Electric vehicles, thus cascading to most other goods as well. However, Republicans still blame Biden for a Imaginary “Hyperinflation” and “Stagflation” crisis with racist Dog whistles that this is being caused by giving stimulus checks to “those people”, that galvanizes White Conservative turnout for the Midterms. 4) The “Supply Chain Crisis” becomes a thing of the past with the exception of Fox News Fear mongering. COVID-19 Pandemic: 1) The COVID-19 Pandemic is essentially over by the end of 2022, as a result of Herd Immunity being accomplished due to the combined effect of virtually the entire population being either Vaccinated and/or Infected, along with Natural Selection causing new strains of the Virus to become less deadly over time with COVID-19 never having been that dangerous to anyone who wasn’t Elderly and/or Immunocomprised, making the Virus essentially equivalent to the Common Cold for anyone with Vaccine or Natural Immunity, 2) Despite the Pandemic fizzling out, the Media continues fear mongering over new variants in order to increase ratings (Omnicron proves to be a classic example of this), and politicians on both sides of the Vaccine, Mask, and Lockdown debates use it as another Culture War issue to turn their voters out, with the 2022 US Midterms being a clear case of this. However, despite all of the hysteria on both sides, the average person grows increasingly numb to these issues and after the Midterms it quickly falls out of the public consciousness. Sports: 1) The defending Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers repeat to win Super Bowl LVI, with their 44 year old Quaterback Tom Brady winning his eighth Super Bowl. 2) The Golden State Warriors win the NBA championship. 3) The MLB lockout lasts all year causing the 2022 season to be completely cancelled, with the World Series being canceled for the first time since 1994. 4) As an American I know practically nothing about Soccer/Association Football so I unfortunately can’t predict who will win the 2022 World Cup, LOL.

There will be some type of revolution attempt or just something alongside soviets (not just soviets as in worker's assemblys, but just
citizen's assemblies, as it has happened in other "atempts" of mass protests be it, to put an example, occupy wall street) which will be answered by the greek goverment by releasing the military on them. >No a western goverment would do that nooooo I mean in the Netherlands they used live ammo against protesters so in a country which it's lower on the "goodness democratic spectrum (as in, the germanic EU, Germany, the nordic countries, the netherlands, Belgium…) wouldn't really be that out of the question for Greece to launch the military at the protestors. There will be some real kino riot porn until the massacre comes in. We also gotta remember that Greece approved as of recently (I mean, like 6 months ago, but whatever) a daily 10 hour work shift, so in the case of the massive economic fallout that is gonna happen because of getting passed Covid, the only way out, aside from more austerity (which Greece can't deliver, it only has the bones of a state, unless they privatize the police or some shit) so they will just start cutting into the worker's rights so Greek porkies (and german porkies) can have more money. This might make it so there's some what of a red spring (which will not resemble soviets, mind you, but resemble what happened like at Occupy Wall Street) in the PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain) countries against EU Austerity, but there won't be a revolution out of it, just a mask off of the states. These regions are probably the ones with the most potential revolutionary energy of the EU.

So, it is official that Russian security personnel are deployed to Mali. >Mali, a landlocked country in the Sahel region in West Africa, is the latest theatre of the great contestation involving the big powers playing out in different forms following the launch of the United States’ containment strategies against China and Russia. >France, the erstwhile colonial power that ruled Mali, and Germany, another colonial power with a violent history in Africa, have been supposedly fighting counterinsurgency in the Sahel region for the past several years. >However, the people of Mali, with good reason, suspect that these European powers are not serious about fighting jihadist groups but are pursuing their neo-colonialist agenda. >Reports have been appearing in the Russian media at least since 2019 that the Sahel countries had sounded out Moscow about the deployment of military advisers, following the model of other regions in Africa such as the Central African Republic. >Sahel region running along the midriff of Africa sits atop some of the largest aquifers on the continent and is potentially one of the richest regions in the world. No doubt, it is a region of great strategic significance, a belt 1,000 km wide that spans the 5,400 km stretch from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. >In retrospect, the Russian African Economic Forum held on 23-24 October 2019 in Sochi turned out to be an important geopolitical event where the Russian diplomats effectively used history to their advantage. >Historically, Russia carries no colonial backlog in the African continent — unlike France, Britain, Italy, Germany, Portugal or Spain. Russia hasn’t any gory record of making military interventions in Africa — unlike the United States. It has a clean slate — like China. >This history is found very appealing by African elites. Russia has no qualms about acknowledging that Mali government approached it for deputing private companies to boost security in the conflict-torn country. >Earlier this month, Russian Foreign Ministry asserted that Moscow will continue to assist Mali in its fight against terrorism and will further help enhance its army’s combat effectiveness. >The Foreign Ministry said, “Moscow strongly condemns the barbarous act committed by terrorist forces in friendly Mali… We support the Mali government’s intention to take all necessary measures to ensure security, detain and punish those responsible for the crimes. >“Russia will continue to support collective efforts geared to combat terrorism in the Sahara-Sahel region, to offer practical assistance to the countries of this region, including Mali, in terms of enhancing combat effectiveness of their armed forces, training servicemen and law enforcers.” >On its part, Mali too plays with an open hand. In his address to the UN General Assembly in September, Mali’s Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maiga accused France of abandoning his country with its “unilateral” decision to withdraw troops. The French President Macron’s predicament is that his five-nation war across Africa’s Sahel region is as unpopular in Mali as it is at home in France. >Meanwhile, Malians have given a rapturous welcome to the Russian military advisors. France 24 reported that the tailors in Bamako, the capital and largest city of Mali, are doing roaring business making Russian flags to meet the local demand. >France’s 10-year old war has devastated Mali and several other countries, but has failed to contain the threat from the Muslim rebel groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and Islamic State that incubated in next-door Libya following the NATO-directed regime change project to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, which was, ironically enough, piloted by France only. >Like with the US occupation of Afghanistan, suspicions have arisen that France has been playing a dubious game in Mali. In October, Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga told the Russian media that French forces have been secretly funnelling support to terrorist groups like the al-Qaeda-aligned Ansar el-Din front and had no intention of winning the war. >In reality, Macron is only ordering a partial withdrawal of troops. Most of the 5,000 French troops deployed in Mali are merely shifting south, toward the tri-border area with Burkina Faso and Niger. France has no intentions of abandoning Sahel although its reputation is in the mud among the local people. Its neocolonial agenda is self-evident. >Indeed, Mali holds rich deposits of gold, bauxite, manganese, iron ore, limestone, phosphates, uranium, etc. Gold dominates Mali’s mineral sector; Mali is 4th largest gold producer in Africa. Mali’s mineral resources remain relatively undeveloped; its territory remains largely unexplored and unmapped. >The Europeans are seething with envy and fury that the Russians may establish themselves in Mali and replace them for good. Last Thursday, France and 15 NATO allies issued a joint statement denouncing the Mali government’s invitation to the Russian security personnel. Interestingly, the US issued a separate statement. >The fact of the matter is that NATO has been planning to move into Sahel to provide a platform for the western powers to concentrate on their neo-colonial agenda to exploit the resources of that region. But the project is stalled since the gateway to Sahel is Libya where anarchical conditions prevail (and Russia has an established presence already.) >If Russian were to spread wings in the Sahel region as well, the NATO might as well mothball its African dreams once and for all. >As it is, the Western powers desperate about the inroads China is making in the African continent. China lists 39 African countries on the Belt and Road official website, ranging geographically from Tunisia to South Africa. China has lent African countries hundreds of billions of dollars as part of Belt and Road Initiative. >The BRI is often critiqued by its detractors as so-called “debt trap diplomacy.” But BRI projects in Africa reveal a nuanced reality of how the initiative functions in the developing world, where infrastructure financing is desperately needed, and political externalities are of secondary concern to the receiving states. >China’s courtship of African political and military leaders through visits from top Beijing leadership has been absolutely outstanding. Equally, it creates space for the African elites to negotiate with the erstwhile colonial powers in Europe. >The noted American scholar Yun Sun, a director at the Stimson Center in Washington, said in a Congressional testimony on China’s presence and investment in Africa that “China’s strategic aspirations are causally related to its economic engagement in Africa and are mutually reinforcing each other.” That is a perceptive observation. >It is in this context that the paranoia of the Western powers is to be understood — that Russia may be effectively complementing the Chinese challenge which is already formidable. Succinctly put, the West’s neo-colonialist agenda is being checkmated. The profound economic and strategic implications cannot be overstated. >This is not to suggest that Russia and China are acting in concert in Mali, although it is conceivable that they could be coordinating and are, most certainly, on the same page. The stakes are high insofar as Mali sits on great untapped mineral wealth. >Unlike China which sticks to business deals, Russia does not shy away from declaring its unflinching support for the struggle against all neo-colonial tendencies in Africa.

True, but these small scale interventions can be the seed to a larger invasion. For example, they can easily let a few American personnel get killed in a false flag to justify invasion. Whether this happens depends on if there is a political need to do so, whether it is to look good at home or to contain Russia/China.

About the Yemeni struggle: don't underestimate the gains made in 2021.
Even if they are not enough to end the war they've been pretty significant.
Also on Ethiopia something tells me that as paradoxical as it could sound the federal forces will have an easier time crushing TPLF than OLA.
Also a joint attack to end the Tigrayans with the help of Eritrea is possible.

However, I have softened my stance a bit due to the combination of fear of being Permabanned, along with the fact that I am starting to feel that both sides of the Virus/Vaccine debate are being engineered for the same purpose of helping Republicans (remember that this crap all started under Trump, with Warp Speed being one of his biggest “achievements” and the vast majority of Republicans are Vaccinated despite the MSM narrative that they are not) in the 2022 and 2024 elections.

The "End of History" means that the socialist movement is still very weak around the world, to the point of being completely annihilated in what we define as the West and with scarce relevancy in vast areas of Africa and Asia (even if we can see some progress here and there and some small signs of hope).
Its also been 40+ years since the last revolution aimed at building a DotP (Nepal arguably turned out to be a liberal revolution even if headed by a Maoist party).

I keep tabs on things like /r/QAnonCasualties and I honestly think they’re gonna be a major source of lone wolf terror attacks in the coming decade. They’re braying for blood and are only getting angrier and more desperate because they didn’t see the mass firing squads and executions televised that they wanted. Newer influencers, like the “Q Anon queen of Canada” are getting followings because she’s telling her followers she’s killing something like 10,000 pedophiles a day. With Trump pushing vaccines, I expect them to double down and do some horrifically evil stuff to get the bloodshed they crave; bombing hospitals, shooting up preschools (likely under the belief “they’re trafficking children there!”) and maybe even trying to kill a Democratic politician or two.
They’re fucking insane and it’s only going to get worse the further they move from reality.

No further splits will appear and leftypol focuses on building more alliances with other leftist sites and boards. A proper webring is created with a fairly large userbase appearing that surfs between all of the affiliated sites and boards.
Leftypol grows slowly and reaches 500-600 IPs by the US midterms, before having an explosive period of growth which leaves it at ~1000 IPs by the end.
The moderation team will expand to contain just under 20 people and their composition will make the team less burger. Small sub-teams are created to handle /siberia/ and the other boards more specifically. Some of the existing mods will retire after their long period of tumultuous service.
The psuedo-/x/ board is created, as well as an international board, but no more boards will be made within the year.
Flagposting will make a large-scale return as faster PPH incentivizes quicker communication of your position on certain affairs.
China continues to advance its position in the world market through their investment in Africa paying off, with many emerging and powerful African nations pursuing more formal political relations with China
Cuba opens up some liberalizing reforms which lessen the US embargo on them, but CIA meddling in the following year results in the rescinding of the reforms and the return to a status-quo, Cuba having done major modernization in the time that they were un-embargoed.
The pink tide will continue to pick up momentum in South America with the US largely incapable of stopping it. By the end of the year however, there will be conflict in the movement between the social-democrats and more radical communist elements over how far they are pushing the movement and how fast.
Italy either gets perilously close to our outright leaves the EU, further weakening the European economic and political sphere. In response, the further centralization of the EU militaries into an imperialist force to make expeditions into 3rd world countries is taken, and the EU begins entering into conflict with the US and Russia in trying to broaden their sphere of influence.
India's Modi regime will falter as mounting proletarian pressure weakens the grip of the reactionary government, leaving a road open for moderate social-democrats to usurp them. However, even if this happens, tensions will not de-escalate with China.
The US experiences a weak economic recovery from the pandemic, with many jobs still not getting filled even with mass-unemployment persisting. Despite this, the duopoly of the parties maintains a hold, and Republicans make a killing out of the midterms. The dissatisfaction of the masses shall be channeled into Bernie Sanders again, but his wing of the Dems will be ratfucked out of power. Much of the power invested in Bernie is then devolved, however, to local seats, with independents and various socialists winning lower seats and beginning a war from the bottom-up against the established parties.

It's been pretty demoralizing for Qtards; GEOTUS came out as pro-vaccine, JFK Jr. hasn't appear in Dallas, Trump didn't get reinstated, Hillary isn't in prison. QAnon is running on fumes at this point. The world just doesn't belong to them anymore… Unfortunately, that's often the point where they grab their AR-15 and go out in a blaze of infamy. What worries me more is this common belief on Reddit that China and Russia are using the pandemic to destroy the U.S. >Some libs would try to respond by getting insurers to drop the unvaxxed or repealing the Reagan era regulation of requiring people to receive treatment even if they can't pay Its a matter of how long they're willing to eat millions of dollars in unpayable debt. >Republicans will sweep the midterms. The Left will be blamed, "Biden shouldn't have tried to be FDR!" I don't know. People were saying the Dems would sweer the 2018 Midterms but that "Blue wave" was a trickle. Also, most COVID deaths happen among unvaccinated people in red states and the GOP program just consists of screaming "Let's Go Brandon" over and over again. And that is assuming that Roe v Wade doesn't get repealed or the Qtards don't commit some mass shooting. >Desperate for a win, U.S. tries using drone warfare. Drone warfare only really works against countries with no functional air force, they don't have air-to-air capability. If a MQ-9 Reaper gets to say hello to the FAV's Su-30s, it'll be a zero score for the USAF. That is, assuming it doesn't get hacked and landed on an FAV base like the MQ-170 in Iran. >However drones incinerating schoolyards full of children on America's backdoor becomes massively unpopular, expect interviews with Venezuelan or Nicaraguan expats in mags like Vice or Jacobin: "My daughter was murdered by Biden!" VICE is effectively a mouthpiece of the Pentagon and State Department, you'll be reading articles from gusanos about how opposition to interventionism is White privilege. Either that or third-campism where Maduro is equated to Bolsonaro and Trump. >The dissatisfaction of the masses shall be channeled into Bernie Sanders again, but his wing of the Dems will be ratfucked out of power. The already happened back in 2020. Bernie is simply too old and most people were over him when he surrendered to the DNC without a fight. >2) Their is no Chinese Invasion of Taiwan… There's more things China can do against Taiwan besides invade it. If Taiwan declares independence, then as long as Taiwan doesn't fire on China first, the measures will primarily be economic and diplomatic.

See it would seem like that, but Q has a death toll to it as well, though not one you see that often.
>First there was that Q-guy that killed a mob boss because he was a "CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING SATANIC COMMUNIST DEMONCRAT" >Then there was a literal casualty not too far from where I live; learned about it through the Q-Anon Casualty subreddit, this woman killed her children and then herself during divorce because she thought her whole town was a pedophile colony. >Then there's the Pizzagate dude who charged that pizza place with an AR. >And wasn't there that one dude that tried taking the Hoover Dam hostage, too?
The point being there's already a death toll attached to Q, and I think the terrible thing is that we want to believe no one would commit terrorism for such an obviously stupid thing, but
I think maybe the most unnerving thing about it is listening in from the perspective of people whose family have been taken in by this weird fucking cult. It's like having a parent get into Meth out of the blue and watching them deteriorate, it's why I browse /r/QAnonCasualties despite Q-Anon not having too much of an impact on me (I've got an uncle across the country who's adjacent to it). There's people on the subreddit who survived the Parkland Shooting, they were students who watched their classmates die, and their parents get into this Q-Anon thing and suddenly start screaming at their own kids that they're liars and scum of the earth and being paid off by the government.
Now I don't expect these people to actually be good at what they do, or a serious threat to the U.S., but the roots of batshit insane extremism are there. If someone takes the Q-Community by storm, a true believer, and tries to organize them, they could end up being akin to an American ISIS or Taliban, committing lone wolf terrorist attacks while under the auspices of a highly decentralized organization.

Damn, I did not know about these. I guess my fixation is more on the inability of Americans to sustain collective action for longer than a couple weeks. The much talked about Jan 6 riots lasted for less than a day, and from then on the right wing populists have been unable to organize much. Even the European and Australian contrarians/proto-fascists have done decent work in their anti-vaccine movements. But the heart of these theories is in America and its primary adherents cannot get themselves to get offline to do something IRL.
Even as a leftist, it's disappointing to see. What does it say about our culture and society that even these highly radicalized and brain poisoned people can only do lone wolf attacks or kill off their own family members? There isn't even any motivation for collective action? I dunno, it's sad man.

It’s like people here can’t comprehend how fucked we’d get without any sort of medical system, and like you say, another virus can easily arise and fuck us all.

Not going to happen in the Imperial core. Maybe in South America the pink wave will move the Overton window leftwards as a reaction from having a more violent history of US-backed coups and repressions.
In Europe I think there are mainly two scenarios for the next few years:
1) Corona becomes endemic with new variants, with measures and media-shilling increasing covid fatigue, anti-vax and anti-lockdowners gaining traction as people lose faith in the vax. These tendencies will be co-opted by the neoliberal far-right which will win a lot of elections (for sure Italy, Visegrad, maybe France) but still in the US sphere for a long time. Nobody is even thinking about EU exits after the MSM succeeded in shilling Brexit as a shitshow. Polls show that even the majority of Britons now would reverse it.
2) Corona loses power sooner, evolving in less and less dangerous variants until it disappears. anti-vaxers stop being relevant with the end of the pandemic. Everything mostly goes to normal. The darkest reaction keeps going on with far-rightoids and woke "left" getting back to the old tricks and probably getting the credit for the end of the pandemic, but the people will not buy it. All the resources given to healthcare during the pandemic will be withdrawn and most of Europe will probably continue being Americanized.
In both the scenarios we will see a crypto bubble exploding, raw materials and energy prices soaring and then collapsing with production. Maybe the Chinese housing market will collapse too. The economic distress will polarize society so much thet 2020 would be a joke in comparison. I hope some anti-establishment Mom and Pops leftists movement will spring up like OWS after the 2008 crisis mixed with Greta-environmentalism, but it's likely it will be co-opted again.
Anyway, we will witness interesting times.

I have yet to make a prediction, so here it goes: I think that the US dollar will fall in value because they are printing too much dollars to fund too much military. We have seen this happening in history multiple times and every time it depresses the value of the currency that is being used to fund military expansionism. If the military gets too much funding it will be able to out-bid the productive sector for resources, labor and brains. Which causes a negative feedback loop that eventually affects currency valuation.

Part of the problem is how highly individuated American Culture is. It's been said before, and it's worth repeating, that part of what allows the Proletariat to become conscious and revolt against the Capitalist Class is the social organization of its labor, that is, the proletariat generally works together to accomplish large scale projects such as working on the factory line.
In America, most productive industries have been shipped overseas, and given the rapidly changing nature of the American Economy there's numerous roadblocks towards building Socialism. I'm a grocery clerk, for example, and rather than everyone getting paid the same wage and getting raises at the same time, we all get semi-annual reviews to determine if we're individually deserving of a raise. A lot of my coworkers are just working while going through college. Or they're working multiple jobs. But either way there's this constant movement that makes it hard to be "rooted" in the class struggle as it were. This also affects Leftist Organizations because everyone may see themselves individually first rather than part of an organized collective. The lolberts have a phrase that describes this well: "we've got an army of officers but no soldiers."
The million dollar question is how we organize under such conditions. And I personally think what we need to do is find the people who aren't "strivers", who don't have a future under the present system. Go to ghettos. Go to rural areas. And try our best to organize the people collectively there; don't be afraid to give and receive orders to and from your Comrades.

LSD was a result of scientists working in MKULTRA, they knew that it allowed people to "escape" their material reality, it was also clear that LSD destroyed their reading comprehension and learning abilities, thus making them less likely to study dense texts, studies, philosophy, science and political-economy like Marxism in their own free time. LSD was a tool to deradicalize communists
The CIA als did multiple attempts to spice drinks of radical student organisations, or attempted to push LSD on black panther members. they did everything they could to popularize LSD.
They pushed artists to push the drug and make it mainstream, like the beatles etc.
On the topic of hippies, most of the original hippies had familial ties with the upper capitalist class or military. The entire ideology of Hippie is not thinking about the future, don't engage in complex philosophical, political-economical or scientific analysis, just do drug, relax, have massive orgies while drugged and enter a new reality, become unconcerned by the material reality now.

Everybody who? Just look at the graphs. Also I did an internship at a machine tool company and all the factories cannot find raw materials and prices rise by the day. If they are going up they must go down sooner or later.

It doesn't mean that it cannot collapse. Also bail-out and nationalizations cost money and Evergrande is not the only one on the brink of bankruptcy.

They did it with BLM just last year.

That's an implication of what I said, soaring prices are fueled by inflation because as money lose value investors prefer to invest it. As soon production inevitably falls with prices reaching unsustainable levels, they will move money into safer options and a crisis will break up.

LNG has to be shipped in cryogenic tankers and it comes from fracking wells, that's not going to scale up much. It's take years to build these ships with their complex shipping terminals that have to freeze and unfreeze the gas. It's gas with too many expensive steps. The US has developed a nuclear reactor that goes into a ocean platform that can make hydrogen, that's way more plausible than the LNG story
>Just look at the graphs

>It doesn't mean that it cannot collapse.
A market collapse happens when giant investors pull out, and in China that doesn't happen unless the Chinese government allows it, because the Chinese state has a habit of disappearing capitalists when they try to do stuff that destabilizes the country. That's what it means that the state is above the market.
>Also bail-out and nationalizations cost money and Evergrande is not the only one on the brink of bankruptcy.
Only the things that actually touch the real economy "cost money" at least for governments that seems to be the case. I think the CPC tries to play nice with the market, but only up to a point, stability is not up for debate.
>As soon production inevitably falls with prices reaching unsustainable levels, they will move money into safer options and a crisis will break up.
If fictional capital inflates the prices of resources, all it takes is one government that decides to print money to subsidize it's production, then every other government will have to follow suit to keep it's industry competitive and in the end fictional capital will just hold currency that states have printed. You can be a gold-bug if you're a small fish, but not if you're a big finance shark.

Huh weird to se my post getting saved. But another very probable prediction is that ASEAN will get broke down by either siding with China or the US. Flip floppers that wants to play both sides will get pressured and instabilities.
Another one is that Taiwan will probably cease to be in the next 5 years with either a reunification by mainland allied KMT or the US cutting their losses and double down on their presence in the Philippines to make it the next bastion against China. This is proven with the recent resolution by the PRC pressing on the Taiwan reunification as the next big goal for national rejuvenation. Plus Marcos Jr, the son of the pro American Filipino dictatorship leader, is making waves in the election with the backing of Duterte, the military and the US.

He didn't say that. Also there is no support for Nato here even despite the Ukraine situation. Support for Nato was like 26% few weeks ago in poll. What I think he meant when one reads between the lines was that Finland holds or wants to hold onto it's long standing strategic ambiguity regarding Nato. There is no Project or even serious public discussion here to joint to Nato, it's more like Finland is content of being in a position of "We are non-allied country, but you Russians better be nice because if you don't we might ask the Americans to move troops to your border". If Biden bends backwards to Putin and says that Nato will no longer expand eastward, we no longer have that. This is what the statement was about.

It isn't that weird, and people in here are predicting that financially everything's going to crap so it's understandable that there will be austerity measures in all of the capitalist countries, including Greece, and they passed a law like 6 months making a 10 hour shift legal, so we can see that they're gonna, aside from make even more austerity measures, going to curtail worker's rights.
Michael Roberts forecast for 2022 Anonymous 2022-01-04 (Tue) 01:58:25 No. 492226 Forecast for 2022 <At the beginning of each year, I make an attempt to forecast what will happen in the world economy for the year ahead. The point of making any forecast at all is often ridiculed. After all, surely there are just too many factors to feed into any economic forecast to get even close to what eventually happens. Moreover, mainstream economic forecasts have been notable in their failure. In particular, they never forecast a slump in production and investment even a year ahead. In my view, that shows an ideological commitment to the promotion of the capitalist mode of production. Although, it is a confirmed feature of capitalism that there are regular and recurring slumps in production, investment and employment, these slumps are never forecast by the mainstream or official agencies until they have happened. <That does not mean making a forecast is a waste of time, in my view. In scientific analysis, theory must have predictive power and that applies as well to economics if it is to be considered a science and not just an apology for capitalism. So if Marx’s theory of crises is to be validated, it must have some predictive power – namely that slumps in capitalist production will happen at regular recurring intervals, primarily due to changes in the rate of profit on capital and resulting movements in the mass of profits in a capitalist economy. <But as I have argued in previous posts, predictions and forecasts are different. From their models, climate scientists predict a dangerous rise in global temperatures; and virologists have also been predicting an increase in deadly pathogens reaching humans in a series of pandemics. But forecasting when exactly these predictions become reality is much more difficult. On the other hand, climatologists are not yet able to forecast well what the weather in a country is likely to be over a whole year, but their models are now pretty accurate for the weather over the next three days. So forecasts for output, investment, prices and employment one year ahead are not so impossible. <Anyway, let’s bite the bullet and make some forecasts for 2022. Last year’s forecast was relatively easy. It was clear that all the major economies were going to make a recovery from the slump of 2020. I wrote: “Real GDPs will grow, unemployment rates will start to decline and consumer spending will pick up.” With the rollout of vaccines, the “G7 economies should be recovering significantly by mid-year”. But I added that “this will be no V-shaped recovery, which means a return to previous levels of national output, employment and investment. By the end of 2021, most major economies (China excepted) will still have levels of output etc below that at the beginning of 2020.” These forecasts have been borne out. <There were two main reasons why I expected the economic recovery would not restore global output to 2019 levels by the end of 2021. First, there had been a significant ‘scarring’ of the major economies from the COVID pandemic in jobs, investment and productivity of labour that can never be recovered. This was exhibited in a huge rise in debt, both public sector and private, that weighs down on the major economies like the permanent damage of ‘long COVID’ on millions of people. <This ‘scarring’ was also exhibited in a fall in average profitability of capital in the major economies in 2020 to a new low, the revival of which in 2021 was not sufficient to restore profitability even to the level of 2019. <Nevertheless, as expected, global real GDP growth in 2021 was probably around 5%, after falling an unprecedented 3.5% in the 2020 slump. According to the IMF, in the advanced capitalist economies, real GDP per person fell 4.9% in 2020 but rose 5.0% in 2021. That meant real GDP per person in these economies was still slightly below the level reached at end-2019. So two years of scarring. <Most forecasts for this year, 2022, are more (or less) of the same as in 2021. The world economy is expected to grow around 3.5-4.0% in real terms – a significant slowing compared to 2021 (down 25% on the rate). Moreover, the advanced capitalist economies (ACE below) are forecast to grow at less than 4% in 2022 and at less than 2.5% in 2023.

https://www.conference-board.org/topics/global-economic-outlook/global-economic-outlook-2022-infographic <It’s a similar story for the so-called emerging economies (EME) of the ‘Global South’, including China and India. China was the only major economy that avoided a slump in the year of COVID, 2020. But growth of China’s output in 2021 was much weaker than after the end of the Great Recession in 2009. The Conference Board seriously underestimates China’s growth rates, but even so, in 2022 China’s real GDP is unlikely to rise much above 5%. <What these forecasts suggest is that the ‘sugar-rush’ of pent-up consumer spending engendered by COVID cash subsidies from fiscal spending by governments and huge injections of credit money by central banks are waning and will do so further this year. Indeed, as we know, central banks are now planning to ‘taper off’ their credit creation and even raise policy interest rates on borrowing. The Bank of England has already started to hike its policy rate and the US Fed plans three hikes in the latter part of 2022. <And all the forecasts for this year rely on the view that the new Omicron variant of COVID will prove to be short-lived and only mildly damaging to human health, thanks to vaccinations and new medical treatments. That may be optimistic and even if Omicron turns out not to disrupt economies this year, there is no certainty that another, more devastating variant may not emerge. <Then, in my view, there is a third leg in the aftermath of COVID slump to come, probably in 2022. In my 2021 forecast, I raised the possibility that such was the size of corporate debt and the large number of so-called ‘zombie companies’ that were not even making enough profit to cover the servicing of their debts (despite very low interest rates), that a financial crash could ensue. <And that is just the risk in the advanced capitalist economies. The so-called emerging economies are already in a dire state. According to the IMF, about half of Low Income Economies (LIEs) are now in danger of debt default. ‘Emerging market’ debt to GDP has increased from 40% to 60% in this crisis. And there is little room to boost government spending to alleviate the hit. <The ‘developing’ countries are in a much weaker position compared with the global financial crisis of 2008-09. In 2007, 40 emerging market and middle-income countries had a combined central government fiscal surplus equal to 0.3 per cent of gross domestic product, according to the IMF. Last year, they posted a fiscal deficit of 4.9 per cent of GDP. The government deficit of ‘EMs’ in Asia went from 0.7 per cent of GDP in 2007 to 5.8 per cent in 2019; in Latin America, it rose from 1.2 per cent of GDP to 4.9 per cent; and European EMs went from a surplus of 1.9 per cent of GDP to a deficit of 1 per cent. The Conference Board is forecasting a fall in the real GDP growth rate for Latin America of two-thirds from 6.4% to 2.2% and then even lower in 2023. That’s a recipe for a serious debt and currency crisis in these countries in 2022 – already Argentina is heading for another default on its debt. <Emerging economy governments are thus faced with either applying severe fiscal austerity that would prolong their stagnation; or devaluing their currencies to try and boost export growth. The Turkish government of Erdogan has opted for the policy of cutting not raising interest rates – in the policy style of Modern Monetary Theory. This has led to an outflow of capital and a 40% depreciation of the Turkish lira against major currencies. Inflation has rocketed. In 2022, the Turkish economy will dive and ‘stagflation’ will ensue. <A financial and debt crisis did not happen in 2021. On the contrary, global stock and bond markets never had it so good. Central bank-financed credit flooded into financial assets like there was no tomorrow. The result has been a staggering rise in financial asset prices (stocks and bonds) and in real estate. Central banks have injected $32 trillion into financial markets since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, lifting global stock market capitalisation by $60 trillion. And companies worldwide raised $12.1 trillion by selling stock and taking out loans as a result. The US stock market index rose 17% in 2021, repeating a similar rise in 2020. The S&P 500 index reached a record high. The Nikkei 225 Index delivered its highest annual gains since 1989. <But as we go into 2022, the days of ‘easy money’ and cheap loans are coming to an end. The huge stock market boom of the last two years looks likely to peter out. Indeed, since April 2021, just five high-tech stocks—Apple, Microsoft, Nvidia, Tesla and the Google parent Alphabet—have accounted for more than half of the rise in US S&P index, while 210 stocks are 10% below their 52-week highs. And one-third of ‘leveraged loans’, a popular form of debt creation, in the US have a debt to earnings ratio exceeding six, a level regarded as dangerous to financial stability. <So this year could be the one for a financial crash or at least a severe correction in stock market and bond prices, as interest rates rise, eventually driving a layer of zombie corporations into bankruptcy. This is what central banks fear. That is why most are being very cautious about ending the era of easy money. And yet they are being driven to do so because of the sharp rise in the inflation rates of prices of goods and services in many major economies. <US consumer goods and services annual inflation rate (%) <This inflation spike is mainly due to pent-up consumer demand as people run down savings built up during lockdowns coming up against supply ‘bottlenecks’. These bottlenecks are the result of the restrictions on the international transport of goods and components and continued restrictions on raw materials and components for production – it is part of the aftermath of the COVID slump of 2020 and because much of the world is still suffering from the pandemic. <Mainstream economics is divided over whether this spike in inflation is ‘transitory’ and inflation rate will return to ‘normal’ levels or not. In my view, the current high inflation rates are likely to be ‘transitory’ because during 2022 growth in output, investment and productivity will probably start to drop back to ‘long depression’ rates. That will mean that inflation will also subside, although still be higher than pre-pandemic. <There is a view that 2022 will actually be the start of new levels of GDP and productivity growth as experienced by the US in the ‘roaring twenties’ of the last century after the end of the Spanish flu epidemic. During the so-called roaring twenties, US real GDP rose 42% and by 2.7% a year per capita. But there seems to be no evidence to justify the claim by some mainstream optimists that the advanced capitalist world is about to experience a roaring 2020s. The big difference between the 1920s and the 2020s is that the 1920-21 slump in the US and Europe cleared out the ‘deadwood’ of inefficient and unprofitable companies so that the strong survivors could benefit from more market share. Profitability of capital rose sharply in most economies. Nothing like that is being forecast for 2022 or beyond, as the Conference Board forecasts (above) show, or for that matter, those of the IMF (below). <Optimists for a new long boom in the 2020s to replace the long depression of the 2010s, like the Conference Board, base their argument on a revival of total factor productivity (TFP). This measure supposedly captures the role of efficiency and innovation in output growth. The CB reckons global TFP will rise by 0.4% on average annually this decade compared to zero over the past 20 years. That’s not much of an improvement when compared with the forecast slowing or even falling working-age employment and weak capital investment growth globally. Indeed, in Q3 2021, US productivity growth slumped on the quarter by the most in 60 years, while the year-on-year rate dropped 0.6%, the largest decline since 1993, as employment rose faster than output. <A long boom would only be possible, according to Marx, if there is a significant destruction of capital values in a major slump. By cleansing the accumulation process of obsolete technology and failing and unprofitable capital, innovation from new firms could then prosper. That’s because such ‘creative destruction’ would deliver a higher rate of profitability. But there is no sign yet of any sharp recovery in the average profitability of capital. Probably there needs to be a sustained rise of about 30% in profitability to deliver a new long boom like the ‘roaring twenties’ or the post-war ‘golden age’ or even that modestly achieved in the neo-liberal period of the late 20th century. <And don’t expect any further fiscal and monetary help from governments. Given the high level of public sector debt, pro-business governments everywhere are looking to reduce fiscal spending and budget deficits. Indeed, taxes are set to rise and government spending to be curtailed. According to the IMF, general government spending in 2022 will fall 8% as a share of GDP this year over last year. This fall is partly due to less spending on COVID support and a rise in GDP. <But if we look at the US government spending and revenue projections, according to the Congressional Budget Office, federal government spending is set to decline by 7% on average up to 2026 compared with 2021 levels while tax revenues are expected to rise by 25%. The US federal budget deficit will be halved in 2022 and kept down for the following years. So no Keynesian-style fiscal stimulus is planned – on the contrary. <US president Biden’s plans to expand fiscal spending have been stymied by Congress and anyway would have had only a small impact on economic activity. The EU’s recovery fund for the weaker Eurozone economies has not yet even started and again will be insufficient to sustain faster economic growth. <In conclusion, assuming no new disasters from the continuing COVID pandemic, the world economy will grow in 2022, but nowhere near as fast as in the ‘sugar-rush’ year of 2021. And by the end of this year, most major economies will have started to slip back towards the low growth, poor productivity trends of the Long Depression of 2010s, with prospects of even slower growth over the rest of the decade. https://thenextrecession.wordpress.com/2022/01/01/forecast-for-2022/

Out of the two shitty extremes that veer off from the perfect Platonic centre of helenic average body shapes, I will take the shitty thinfag side over the "thick" side. Partly because that is somewhat healthier, partly because every hyper-online pissfaggot who unironically uses the word "thicc" needs to be shot for crimes against humor.

Like what, is the fat ass supposed to be arousing? Fucking how? Its not even like feet, where you could at least make an argument that they are a hidden and private part of the body that creates some degree of intimacy, but a fat ass that you can see from a mile? Why? Also its completely out of proportion, making it lowkie grotesque, just like how mega-boobs are grotesque.

I suspect there may be leaks of several governments because of the recent Java log vulnerability. Multiple governments use Amazon and Microsoft servers which was vulnerable. It just hasnt happened yet because if it was done it would take time for someone to look through them if they hacked them.

2. John Fetterman (pictured) will be drafted to run for president in 2024 as a compromise candidate alongside Stacy Abrams M1 Main Battletank to unite the left and 'media-acceptable ultra-conservative right wing' of the democratic party as Biden/Harris primary polls will hover at 3% plus or minus 5% margin of error.

By 2050, every single current and past nation will be dead.
Left communism will be the dominant ideology. Earth will be covered in wasteland. The average leftypol user will have inevitably perished either due to their flawed and retarded ideologies or due to the chaotic fuckshit between now and 2050 (and beyond). I will have inevitably become a alcoholic to deal with the constant pain of having to live on this shitty earth with you fuckers. Infectious cancer will have become common by 2050.

-People get really into an internet meme that seems benign but quickly mutates into racism and classism
-There's another wave of BLM riots that die out within a week due to apathy
-Someone attempts to assassinate a politician and "miraculously" fails, measures are immediately put in place to restrict firearms ownership in either the politician's state or the state where the attempt took place
-Donald Trump formally announces that he will be running for President in 2024, capitalizes on Biden's increasingly obvious late-stage dementia

-Kazakhstan erupts into full-blown civil war

-California burns to the ground again
-General Dynamics wins the NGSW project, all of NATO collectively seethes as bullpups become the new meta
-The world population hits 8 billion, causing people in developed countries to bitch about how people in shithole countries keep having babies for some reason
-China's population growth slows to a crawl and the population actually begins falling within 4 years, ending the hopes of a Chinese century

Cancer is caused by a replication error in the DNA of your cells (specifically it is when one of your cells refuse to die, starts using up the bodies resources, and then begins breeding more cells of itself with the same fucked up mutations to kill you dead) it is not an infectious disease (which are caused by invading microorganisms)
