Since Embracing communism as a system im thinking of radically altering my neet hedonist life in favour of..something else.This is NOT a troll post or a /b/ post;its rooted in Praxis.
I want to :
>start dry fasting once a month for 3 days,and doing OMAD
>going Jain-monk vegan mode
>getting involved in high-T sports like MMA, crossfit(a good gym,not the meme injury stuff),etc
>tithing my income to communist orgs

basically i am seeing communism as a religion. in the good way. even che guevara said guerrillas must be ascetic. this is my manliness,this is my asceticism.
lets be MEN for Stalin.

Read Marx. Unless you get your income from passive sources exploiting others' labor, (i.e. if you work for a living) you are a prole. Prole isn't muh overalls-wearing factory worker. It's people who work for wages so the owners can get rich. You might be a "labor aristocrat" but you're still labor.

It's almost like once you reach a certain size, give lipservice to the correct "woke" issues and hate on "tankies" you basically can allow yourself anything. Hasan for example also had some very heated gamer moments, and has in the past made videos on how to prey on drunk girls.

Meanwhile, someone like Caleb Maupin constantly has to walk on eggshells and every slight deviation from a given wokie issue makes him a literal nazi or something.

Breadtube should have been killed long ago. The entire scene is fucking packed with sex pests and pedos. And while I'm not a TERF, the TERFs are correct that these people absolutely do use the trans issue to invade women's spaces and be overreaching predators.

Mate you are missing the whole point, the problem is the whole system of capitalism not individual middle managers. If anon actually does the stuff he was saying he would like furtively unionizing the workplace and shit without getting fired then that is excellent, that is praxis. Is it better for the workers to have a reasonable commie middle manager rather than an asbolute psycho abusive one that is fully accepting of capitalist ideology? YES ABSOLUTELY. You need to see the bigger picture here. Hell there was a fucking millionaire communist that supported the KPD, or consider Karl Marx and Frederic Engels, Vladimir Lenin, so many rich people, even porkies throughout history have been communists or fellow travelers, even if the vast majority were completely the other way. Are the uper strata of capitalist society worthy of particular suspicion? Yes. Is it better for anon, a communist to be a manager rather than a worker? Yes absolutely. What the hell are you doing yourself? Communists should be reaching the highest positions in society possible while maintaining their loyalty to Communism.

From breadtube to leftypol, we concentrate way too much on "deradicalizing/converting" young edgy borderline incel or economically downwardly mobile men. Many of whom are literal teenagers who have no idea of economics because they don't support themselves yet.

Statistics have show on average women are far more left leaning than men, due to a number of different factors, but especially pronounced among YOUNG women.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT1dBoJjltc

Picrel is "Katherout" aka Katherine Berry, a girl youtube who vlogs about lifestyle, etc. but has lately shifted to lowkey politics. She works in tech sales and is in her mid 20s. According to her video about politics she got converted from a neoliberal girlboss into a communist. Notice her channel, there's no soviet larp iconography, she doesn't talk about politics every day, its just fashion and other normal 20-something girl shit, except she's also a communist.

This is a way more valuable person to have as a communist than some barely reformed /pol/lack who still has a bunch of quasi racist beliefs and whos main motivation to convert to the left was that he got bored of making fashwave memes and spamming the gamerwords on discord.

Instead of trying to convert seething young males with an incomprehensible sense of aggrievement towards <insert group> maybe the best thing to do is ignore them and lean in the exact opposite direction, trying to market to young women, and women of color. This isn't a radlib take its literally just recognizing that this group is WAY more receptive to communism than seething FAGGOTs.

Women like the left and "socialism" better because its perceived as more caring and compassionate (which it is).

A lot of effort is wasted, when in fact a targeted campaign to get women, esp. young women and women of color converted from liberalism to communism would actually yield 10x the results without having to deal with some seething socially maladjusted former /pol/ack who still has the same psychological issues and hangups that caused them to think being a nazi was a good idea to begin with, they probably need like 3+ years of therapy before even turning political again at all.

>/pol/acks make better converts because they are actually interested in politics
They care about magic and grand conspiratorial manufactored delusions that make feed their narcissistic egos. The only broadly political thinking they have is that they are superior to other people and they want a system of repression and sadism that they assume THEY will lead. They and the far right are literally the least likely you could turn into genuine communists.

Even if you are successful in converting them they are less intelligent, less creative, and basically fundamentally incapable of cooperating with other people.

Radlibs and succdems on the other hand are basically naive communists at heart that are drunk capitalist realism. They naturally yearn to cooperate and fight for justice, the perfect personality for a communist.

Find out what they are interested about politically and get them to do most of the talking an explaining.

They will have things to teach you as well, and you should reflect this back to let them know that they are heard.

They are 'anticapitalist' in a similar vein that reactionaries are 'anticapitalist', that is: to look edgy in order to siphon off support from the left and for reasons other than building socialism. There is absolutely nothing in veganism which would necessitate the downfall of capitalism. Capitalism would only need to turn to an ecoauthoritarian 'green' capitalism to appease a vegan takeover of the state and with the machines of today this is absolutely possible.

Vegans would have to fight the tendencies of capitalism which would themselves struggle against the veganism, of course. It would be dirigist capitalism, possibly a war economy since you need resources to maintain this sort of scenario for years, let alone decades. But absolutely possible, until its eventual collapse due to being prone to capitalist crises and market failures.

While we say that ultimately the base creates the superstructure, that superstructure then goes on to influence the base.

The material world existed before “culture” and culture comes about because of material factors. Really, we should see it all as one and the same. That’s a different point though I cba to get into.

For example: colonialism/ capitalism in America creates urban ghettos full of non white people, which become crime ridden and so on, at the same time, lots of cultural elements are born here, the most influential probably being hip hop, from hip hop, comes gangster rap and drill and stuff, and there is an element of this music feeding back into the crime. Now, that is not to say that hip hop causes crime, which is completely retarded, that is however to say that after capitalism has created a hotbed of crime, it develops its own cultural trimmings, which will then go on to become part of the reproduction of those conditions.

We must think of capital always as a process of production and reproduction.

The point is that basically culture came after material conditions. If we go back to when humans were animals, can you really call their communication “culture” ? Maybe you can, I don’t think most people would tend to. It’s another question again. Let’s assume it’s not. Rather than culture then you have simply animals reacting to their immediate conditions and trying to survive. Over time, as they get good at survival, and communication, culture as it is generally conceived develops.

So it’s not that it is “impossible” for the superstructure to create the base, but that, looking at the world we live on, the superstructure emerged from the base, rather than the other way round, and therefore as a feedback loop, the base relations make up the primary function of the human economy

You cannot understand the burger mentality until you understand American Civic/Civil religion, a form of religious nationalism that is parallel to Christianity and operates as a (ironically, arguably idolatrous) form of pseudo-religion or pseudo-Christianity. Rural burgers believe in American civil religion to their CORE, not the educated urbanites I mean the “real” america, the anglo rural "christian" boomers of the 90% of burgerland that isn’t major metropolitan areas, the so called “hinterland”.

>assumes the existence of a vague, generic “God” and a belief that the United States has a special god-appointed role to play by saving the world by spreading “liberty” and american style “democracy” and capitalism around the world.

>has its own values, beliefs, rituals, and holidays parallel to christian holidays
>puritans who fled from europe for religious “liberty” are like the hebrews who fled from Egypt
>America is the “new promised land”. God had lead them across the ocean and given them the land of the natives, just as God led the Hebrews through the desert and given them the land of the Canaanites.

Post the achievements of forgotten leftist badasses here. I'll start:

<Alexander Parvus (1867-1924)

>Born in the Russian Empire, already involved in illegal socialist agitation by age 16
>Forced into exile to Switzerland at age 19
>Studies the immortal science of scientific socialism under Plekhanov but rejects joining the Russian party, decides to participate in the international focal point of socialist theory and practice, the German SPD, instead
>Was THE FIRST to call out Bernstein's opportunism starting in 1895, starts to win supporters from the Russian Empire including Lenin, Trotsky, and Rosa Luxemburg
>Recognized that the proletariat had to lead the coming Russian Revolution long before Lenin or Trotsky
>Called for political Mass Strikes long before Luxemburg
>Took part in the Russian Revolution of 1905, was the "power behind the throne" while Trotsky was leader of the Petersburg Soviet
>Locked in the Peter and Paul fortress by the Tsarist state for his role in the revolution - broke out and escaped back to Germany
>Writes one of the three main book-length classical Marxist analyses of imperialism, now unfortunately untranslated and forgotten
>Moves to Turkey, immediately sought as an advisor to the Young Turks
>Follows his Party, Starts his Business: becomes a multimillionaire capitalist from insider trading to own the rablibs
>When the World War breaks out, Parvus stands with the German Empire in its noble struggle against British Imperialism, thereby creating a multipolar world ripe for revolution

I know the history, in fact I read most of Parvus's biography to write the post. Yes, Parvus definitely went renegade later on with the Reich intelligence involvement and becoming a Porky (figuratively and literally, he was fat as fuck late in life). His contributions before that were unambiguously positive however. It's like how people dismiss Kautsky outright because Lenin called him a "renegade". To be a renegade, you have to "renege" on ideas that still hold true today, and Lenin continued to praise the works of pre-renegade Kautsky even as he heaped scorn on present day Kautsky. Parvus is the same way. If you look carefully you'll see he had an immense impact not just on Trotsky, but also Lenin, Luxemburg, and the whole Second International left. A huge number of concepts attributed to those thinkers were actually originally theorized by Parvus. It was exactly this huge theoretical debt that made the "Lenin is a German agent sent by Parvus" conspiracy theory plausible during the Russian Revolution. They were forced to disavow and ignore his influence as a result, which is why he has been largely forgotten by history.

I also think it's worth drawing attention to his reasoning for supporting the Kaiser in WW1 and becoming an intelligence asset: the idea that a German victory would break British world hegemony and create a multipolar world ripe for revolution. Lenin strongly denounced this standpoint back then, but you see a lot of "Marxist-Leninists" parroting Parvus' viewpoint today with regard to the US-led empire's enemies.

I have very mixed feeling about eritrea and i hope this doesnt come across as bullshit nationalism. but i really dont think they should have ever seceded, considering how similar our cultures are, how are histories are intertwined and how we've basically always been a part of the same polity save for a 40 year italian occupation of eritrea and 10 years of british "administration". i dont think they would have gotten independence had the derg not been full of violent retards, and the tplf literally giving away our entire country's coastline when they came to power is a baffling move.

eritrea is ruled by a proper autocrat and its in a pretty sorry state. i went in 2019 after they reopened the borders, and my uncle who went with me said it literally hadnt changed since he last saw it in the 80s (while ethiopian cities have developed rapidly). theres a reason why such a large part of their population leaves the country (many ethiopians leave too but proportionally way more eritreans..many come to ethiopia) they claim theyre independent of any 'imperialist' international institutions, but really its nothing to brag about considering the state of their country.

having said all that, their leadership was feuding with the tplf since both of them were fighting the derg. so they viewed this conflict as a prime time to get rid of the tplf. i do regret their involvement in the conflict, and now i notice i havent mentioned it - it was decisive in initially collapsing the tplf, but they are implicated in serious abuses. the ethiopian army is as well, but the eritreans seemed to have been doing more.

this i'm sure helped rally people to the tplf, since 3 decades of propaganda has made tigrayans hate eritreans (even though over half of eritrea is literally tigre speakers, functionally the same people). i mean 3 decades of tplf propaganda also turned tigres against ethiopia, when they were always some of the most patriotic ethiopians and the origin or our civilisation. its incredible to see tigrayans burning the ethiopian flag, whose first appearance is in a 10th century tapestry in that same region, in favor of a weird party's aberration.

i think the long-term presence of the eritreans was ultimately detrimental to the campaign. they should have been withdrawn after the initial campaign which routed the tplf in november - aftPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

This guy wrote an interesting article on using popular sites with javascript disabled:

https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2018/05/using-the-web-with-javascript-turned-off/

His experience was that news sites/blogs tended to "mostly" work while most other sites were utterly broken.

WHAT IS /TECH/'S OPINION ON JAVASCRIPT?

I know many on the channers totally disable js in the browser since Stallman wrote an article against javascript many years ago, additionally many are paranoid about browser zero days used by glow in the darks. Finally a ton of people just see javascript heavy sites as being bloated and overengineered, having slow load times and discriminating against minimalism and third world users with slower internet.

With more and more sites using SPA frameworks like vue, react, and angular, and less and less apps doing server side HTML rendering, javascript-disablers are quickly becoming a tiny minority.

What do we think about js vs nojs/noscript?

the problem with bespoke protocols like gemini is that they're less accessible than HTML since everyones already got an HTML browser, second of all gemini doesn't support forms AFAIK so no post operations which means no chat rooms, forums, social media, hell, not even images.

>second of all gemini doesn't support forms AFAIK so no post operations
It does in a limited way
https://gemini.circumlunar.space/docs/specification.html
See the INPUT section, but it doesn't allow forms with multiple fields and such easily. Though you can probably still send a delimited string in the META line I guess and return a similarly delimited string as a query string for multiple field input, as long as a client program makes this seamless, it could work like a rudimentary form.
And client TLS certificates can be used for authentication, so there is a rough idea for how to do form input on gemini.
However, the whole point of gemini is that it's not supposed to be an "all-in-one" protocol like HTTP seems to have become (and that's why writing a good browser engine is so hard these days that everyone is defaulting to using Chrome's engine). So if you want chat rooms, forums, etc. those would best be implemented as separate protocols from gemini, so something like IRC or similar for chat, BBS style boards for forums, etc.
A gemini client could inline images also, nothing really stopping clients from doing this, but it'd go against the whole point of gemini.

Especially communist ones. although I could also give credits to Suharto and Lee Kuan Yew I think that they have made their respective countries great. except for Hitler, fuck him Take Suharto for example. Although he is staunchly anti-communist but the fact that he has developed the Indonesian economy and state in general makes me give him credits. Not to forget Xi Jinping and Joseph Besarionis dze Jughashvili, both of which rapidly modernized their respective nations. Also notable is Lee Kuan Yew, of which even the Deng you guys always bashed learned from him. The rest, including Eastern European and African dictators (as well as some Asian ones) including Pol Pot have positioned their countries as a bastion against decadent degenerate democracy.

Democracy always sucked. Take the US for example. There are lots of intra-party fights going on ever since Trump took office, first time by the donkeys and now by the elephants. The fact that January 6 rioters stormed the Capitol and Antifa burning down houses makes me more disillusioned to democracy. Also noted that there are so many far right retards here and there, screaming conspiracy theories like QAnon and "vaxx are unsafe" as well as general misinformation. There is also immense MSM control there, so that every single news coming out of the country is nevre unbiased, yet the people aren't aware of it due to the fact that "America's a democracy, democracies never do that." Liberals are another major concern, in which they align their positions to be close to DC as possible. They always cared about muh human rights issues without realizing that their ideals themselves is actually a barrier to state development. (Take for example Palestinian liberation. Although they (and I) support Palestinian national liberation, I don't support Palestine being a bourgeois democracy (like they do).)

One of those things that I have always stressed is that they implement censorship, which is actually beneficial for national development. So that critics could just stay silent and watch as the government unveils new stuff. The fact that in a democracy there's going ot be lots of criticism makes state development impossible. Just look at US infrastructure. It's 50 years old already yet they won't update them (particularly their IT sector, they were btfo'd by Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

So, it looks like i'm somehow banned for calling an kurdish( or maybe greek /Pol/yp) ultranationalist "goat-fucker" but why?
Why can't we attack reactionaries with their own language? Fascism is not only a first-world thing, there is a amount of fascism at third-world. We attack white/burger fascists in a fascistic way, so why can't we attack others same way?
Like if a hindutvafag comes, can't we attack hım like "streetshitter" or "show bobs and vagena" ?

I am unable to find this ban, is it still active? Can you give the time or duration of the ban, or the exact ban reason?
I am willing to bring this up with the moderators, as it does not sound like an offense.
