Just applied for 25 entry-level positions that have fuck all to do with degree I spend 5 years studying. Chances are I wont get any of them. Thinking about removing university from CV just because it might make me seem too overeducated in the eyes of the recruiter.

I was never unintegrated, but I cant mask for longer periods of time, or when under stress. So I looked OK during interview, but when I am with someone 8 hours a day, they will inevitably notice something off about me. Hopefully I can find something where my boss is a man, women seem to be more sensitive towards these kind of things.

The Purpose of This Thread
I've seen about a dozen threads asking about Fascists: "Why are they like this?" "What is Fascism?" "Is Fascism Far Right?" "Is the modern KPRF Fascist?" "Why do laymen Nazis hate America?" "How did Hitler organize the Nazis?" "What does /leftypol/ think of <insert random Fascist here>"

These repetitive threads get a lot of attention and people end up retreading the same few questions, so I figured I'd make a general for all questions and inquiries into Fascism. Consider it a study group for a niche subject. Whether it be out of genuine curiosity or means of countering Fascist ideology, I'm hoping people can point to this thread instead of starting new ones or bumping a dozen different old ones.

We’ll go be fair I would say Italy is still the beating heart of Fascist intellectualism; with Neo-Fascist candidates actually running on positions like local corporatist reforms, but outside of that specific context a lot of modern fash just fall into what I’d coin “killpeople-ism”

Of course that can change. Casapound has actual international ties ranging from Hezbollah to Azov, they’re training militants, and it’s entirely possible that they could in turn offer international training to other Fascist groups.

>>1767291
Honestly if people don’t think Socialism is gonna do anything for them, of course they’ll go fascist. Yet in spite of that I see a certain strain of Socialists claim that Socialism would immediately lower American living standards, or solemnly proclaim that Socialism can never happen here, or find some other way to make an obviously appealing idea sound “bad” to the masses. This really shouldn’t be controversial, but for some reason people think being wildly abrasive to the people you want to appeal to is acceptable as long as you’re correct. Meanwhile Fascists will go out of their way to try to “woo” people or present themselves as reasonable.

I see plenty of people on here saying rhetoric doesn’t matter, presentation doesn’t matter, “those are just liberal spooks”. I’ve got to disagree. How you present ideas do matter, and if you’re a cunt, people aren’t going to listen to you.

>there are retards who actually believe Hitler won a single election
he was the head of the Nazi party, and the Nazi party won large electoral victories in the 1930s, enough to form a plurality of delegates in the Reichstag. He was essentially picked as chancellor (i.e. prime minister) because he could form a majority coalition between his Nazi party and other conservative nationalist parties. By the logic of a parliamentary system, he did gain power in a conventional legal way.

That being said, Hitler personally lost when he attempted to run against Hindenburg in presidential elections in 1933. His being pick as chancellor also happened under murky circumstances, because parliamentary elections were delayed extralegally by Hindenburg. In the final parliamentary elections (in 1932) before Hitler was chosen as chancellor in early 1933, the Nazis were starting to lose electoral seats after their massive gains in the previous 2 or 3 elections, indicating that the Nazis were on a trend of losing their seats.

Funny enough I tend to like Wolff for his cranky New York Jew persona. Though I watched him debate an Objectivist and there were people saying he seemed angry all the time while the lolbert he was debating seemed friendly and smiley. So I can see where you're coming from.

>I've come across libertarians that say. Well I want libertarianism but with American made goods and employing Americans and be more self sufficient. Those guys are confused communists I think.


I've got a good friend who's a libertarian, and a lot of the time it feels like he gets real close to Marxism before pulling himself back. Like saying economics matters more than racial identity and shit. I think the problem is American propaganda forcibly defined "Communism" as being akin to 1984; so people want the freedom Communism can provide but get scared away from Communist thought because they're convinced it's when the government breaks your legs to make you "equal" to crippled people.

When Oswald Mosley Met Juan Peron

>On the 31 October 1950, BOAC flight BA351 took off from London Airport and arrived in Buenos Aires at 19.40 hours the next day. According to the passenger list there was a ‘Harry Morley’ on board the aircraft.


>However, this name didn’t fool MI5**. As early as 9 October they had picked up from a phone tap on Union Movement Head Quarters that Alf Flockhart, one of Oswald Mosley’s political secretaries, was booking an open ended airline ticket to Argentina for him – and that ‘Harry Morley’ was to appear on the passenger list.


>MI5 immediately sent a list naming eight of Mosley’s most active supporters in Argentina, and elsewhere in South America, to SIS and on 26 October informed the Foreign Office.


>On arrival in Buenos Aires, Mosley was interviewed and said that his visit was connected solely with the sale of books in Argentina and Chile and that he was staying with friends. A message sent by the British Embassy to London on 4 November by diplomatic bag commented that Mosley’s visit had been reported fully in the Argentinean press who claimed that it was instigated by members of the Argentine government. However the Embassy believed that this did not appear to be the case, there was no indication of any Argentinean government interest and later the press went out of its way to say he was an unwelcome visitor.


>On 17 November Senor Pombo of the Argentinean Embassy in London was taken to lunch by someone in the Foreign Office and he ‘confirmed’ that Mosley was only getting in touch with certain Germans there. Later MI5 reported that Mosley arrived back in the UK at Hurn Airport on 26 November having broken his journey in Spain for two days.


>But for all their phone taps and mail intercepts, MI5 and the Foreign Office had been fooled. Mosley did indeed meet Peron which, if known at the time, might have seriously jeopardised Argentina’s negotiations for higher beef prices with the British Labour Government who considered Mosley their mortal enemy. Suddenly, Senor Pombo’s ‘reassurance’ and the hasty change in tune of the Argentinean press can be seen as part of an orchestrated plan of misinformation by the Peron Government.

Why do people constantly call the saga of Tanya Mangaka a communist? just stumbled upon the guy's feed and it's full of boomer takes, SDF shilling(this is the complete antithesis of the JCP), and anti-communist retweets.

>To be fair, tanya the evil can very easily be read as communist
I wouldn't say that, since Zen very clearly has a low opinion of the Soviet Union. Some form of anti-capitalism as well as criticism of hyper-individualism is definitely there though.
>Tanya, who is an anti-communist herself, is portrayed as an objectively bad person, being actively punished by literally God.
She's also portrayed as a hypocrite who doesn't even believe in her own ideological principles, and is guilty of the things she accuses her enemies of. She hates commies because they supposedly kill people who aren't opposing them, yet she goes out of her way to massacre civilians and slip by on technicalities. She openly says that she would be okay with taking away other people's freedom as long as nobody takes hers, etc. These behaviours are also self destructive, since all her efforts to secure a peaceful position in the rear by doling out more violence only push her further into harm's way, and cause her enemies to multiply and become more determined. Her obstinate refusal to acknowledge anything outside of her own ego literally dooms not just her but the Empire.

They also go into more detail about how miserable she is during the whole affair. Remember that this reincarnation was intended as a punishment, and it is effective as one. This is somewhat lost in the anime since they don't get into the internal monolgues as much.

Commander Abu Khalid, the spokesperson for the Martyr Omar Al-Qasim Forces (the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine), issued a military statement announcing the continuation of the Martyr Omar Al-Qasim Forces' resistance against the occupation forces and their machinery. The statement detailed their engagement with the enemy on the northern Gaza Strip and in Khan Younis, bombarding their positions with rockets in coordination with Saraya Al-Quds (the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement). Here are the details:
The Martyr Omar Al-Qasim Forces confronted the enemy forces and their machinery around Nasser Hospital west of Khan Younis, employing machine guns, explosive devices, anti-personnel and anti-machinery rockets, and B7 shells, successfully hitting one of the enemy's vehicles and causing casualties among their ranks, including dead and wounded.
In cooperation with fighters from Saraya Al-Quds, the Martyr Omar Al-Qasim Forces targeted enemy gatherings in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood southeast of Gaza with 107-caliber rockets, hitting their targets and inflicting severe losses on the enemy.
The Martyr Omar Al-Qasim Forces engaged in fierce battles with the "israeli" enemy forces east of Gaza City, using a variety of weapons, including anti-personnel shells, resulting in significant losses for the enemy.

>Change in unit values can be flat and then "infinite" right at the constraint
mhm
>normally you are not there
Dapprich explicitly relies on being at an optimal point (page 164), which means not only are you near a constraint, you're on as many constraints as you have variables (disregarding the case where there's more than one optimal point, such as an optimal line or facet). the shadow prices are given by the dual solution to the primal problem
>You have a buffer stock and within a range unit-cost stays basically same. And in more long-term planning about changing the scale of production, unit values are usually lower at the bigger scale
this is true of course, and investment is non-convex so costs can actually decrease per unit there. this also goes whenever there's spare capacity, this being equivalent to being in the interior of the plan polytope. but Dapprich doesn't propose that. he proposes maximizing GDP, which means operating at an extreme point, not in the interior
>You just in this very post made the neoclassical assumption of rising marginal cost as the normal thing
marginal costs do rise in convex planning, as soon as you start hitting constraints. in the interior it is not necessarily the case
>The equilibrium price I refer to would be the cost-covering price, nothing marginal about it.
this isn't what shadow prices are though. they have nothing to do with costs
in a socialist economy there are no other costs than labour, and all such costs are ex-post covered. we can choose to price things differently, but the cost is a given

The far-right is generally characterised by leftists as pseudo-intellectual, backward, and immoral, primarily due to it's positions with regard to racial differences among human beings and it's general advocacy of closed border policies to both retain a homogeneous white country and minimise criminal activity.

It tends to prescribe these measures in responses to large influxes of people that are overwhelmingly overrepresented in crime with cultures that are seen as being incompatible with those of the west and/or as having a detrimental influence on the overall state of the western world.

The left tends to counter these claims with two main arguments of which all other arguments are effectively variations.

1. An appeal to modern scientific consensus which (according to them) argues that all differences in racial behaviour are not so much genetic in nature but rather socioeconomic.

2 An appeal to morality that argues that racial discrimination is wrong due to this form of generalisation harming individual people that fall outside the norms of their group.

Yet, none of these arguments discredit the efficacy of a racial worldview in creating stable and safe societies and can easily be refuted by pointing out the following.

Assuming that the left is, in fact, right about all behaviour being driven by socioeconomic factors, this doesn't make any difference with regard to mass migration to the west being mainly comprised of people with notoriously bad socioeconomic backgrounds, and any open border policy that doesn't primarily filter subequatorial populations out of the mix will therefore inevitably contribute to massive increases in violent crime the more the demographic composition of white countries changes into those of Africans, Mexicans, South-Americans, Arabs, Pakistanis, and so forth.

Every successful empire in the history of the world has always been cosmopolitan. Actually the idea of "Western Civilization" itself refers to the earlier Roman Empire which was also cosmopolitan as well as the Athenian Empire which was also expansionist and cosmopolitan.

The lovers of """racial science""" sure do hate it though when you point out that every significant civilization in the world that held immense sway over others and made their mark on history were hardly monoracial/monolinguistic/monocultural/etc.

So knowing that
A) Every significant civilization in world history has been cosmopolitan and

that would naturally lead to

Strange that you'd say this on an anonymous site where you have no way of knowing that. I could be the Harvard professor of Middle East Studies for all you know. The only reason I can think is that your trying to play a cheap rhetorical game where you use your supposed insider status to shut down all debate as if your personal opinions as an ex-Muslim somehow holds more weight than facts and arguments. Given that you think Islam was invented by "the Muslim empire" (Umayyad? Abbasid?) which is something no serious historian believe, I don't think the rest of your r/exMuslim tier rambling merits a response.

Some good answers already. Adding mine, because liberals want to blame everything on Muslims and it makes no sense to dogpile against Muslims, further contributing to the bloodthirsty xenophobia/racism. Islam isn't that much different from other religions in the west. Although a huge issue is that mostly immigrants and poor people are Muslim, and also, a lot of US's enemies are Muslim majority countries. Maybe you didn't live it, but since 2001, the anti-muslim rhetoric was absolutely deranged and genocidal. Now it's a bit more chill but many people still feel Islam is responsible or the source of the worst of the world's evil.

>Over the years, the mechanics have drifted toward being heavily combat focused when originally the backbone of the game was the exploration mechanics.

It literally was created from a tabletop wargame, mate. All editions of dnd were 80-90% combat and combat relevant stuff. Exploration was part of the adventure but wasn't actually covered mechanically, only through roleplay. Read any classic Gygax adventure, all the traps and secrets were not covered by mechanics aside from damage and saving throws. You had to actually listen to description, make your own guess, have your own idea to push the shield on the wall aside or touch specific place with 11ft pole (because if you do it with 10ft one, you will be in the range of the trap because GM is a massive dickhead). Hell, most of the adventures involved more descriptions of action using 10ft pole than any actual roleplay (and given high lethality of combat and low survivability, characters were rarely more that a stat sheet). And when exploration meanichs were introduced in 3.0 like with skills governing search and trap disarm, many old fans were pissed because now you could actually solve stuf mechanically through dice roll instead of being better in predicting how much of a dickhead your GM is today.

And that stuff can be done without any system at all. And it's a very boring way to go about it.

D&D had multiple influences. Chainmail was the basis for the combat, but it was drawing from other things like Braunstein for the actual structure of the game. In early versions (pre-whitebox) they didn't even have its own combat rules and just said to use Chainmail to resolve combat. The subsequent 1e, B/X, 2e, etc versions had explicit rules for how to interact with the world and dungeon. I'm not talking about skill checks for searching and the like, but rules for how progressing through the dungeons works, the passage of time, and consumption of supplies. That aspect of the game was about resource management, and taking that risk to get more resources in the form of treasure. Plus rules for attracting followers and building an estate. All of that stuff got either moved to supplemental material or cut entirely in later editions, starting with 3e, which made the game less about the dungeon layout and more about the combat grid. Afterward it only got more fixated on those rules. 4e overcommitted and had everybody using mechanics to move each other around like chess pieces. 5e reigned that in, but it has even fewer rules for anything besides combat.
>Hell, most of the adventures involved more descriptions of action using 10ft pole than any actual roleplay (and given high lethality of combat and low survivability, characters were rarely more that a stat sheet)
Yes, and that's an entirely different way the play style has changed. It used to be thought of very much as a game first. The roleplaying elements weren't the driving element. As the hobby got more popular, people starting wanting to put more focus on the story and characters, but that didn't have as much of an effect on the actual rules because most of that part of playing the game isn't defined by rules anyway.

Too much trivia for where simple "i was wrong" would suffice. If we open almost any edition of the dnd and simply started counting lines of text, attributing it to different aspects of the game, it will be clear that everything else aside combat is an afterthought.

Inventory management is not the same as exploration. The vast majority of people are not particulary interested in Excel simulators.
>which made the game less about the dungeon layout and more about the combat grid

>There's a lot more than that, but "war is bad" is still politics my dude.
There's a difference between the way politics and ideology bleeds into everything or many broad themes being political in a sense, and something being an intentional political screed or even some sort of secret propaganda.

>There's also a lot about rightful kings

Not really. Aragorn et al is more King Arthur than any kind of political monarchism. While Aragorn IS a direct descendant of Isildur, his place as the rightful king has more to do with him fulfilling a series of prophecies than because he's Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador son of Argonui son of Arathorn son of Arassuil son of Arahad son of Aravorn son of Aragost son of Arahad son of Araglas son of Aragorn son of Aravir son of Aranuir son of Arahael son of Aranarth son of Arvedui son of Araphant son of Araval son of Arveleg son of Arvegil son of Argeleb son of Araphor son of Arveleg son of Argeleb son of Malvegil son of Celebrindor son of Celepharn son of Mallor son of Beleg son of Amlaith son of Eärendur son of Elendur son of Valandur son of Tarondor son of Tarcil son of Arantar son of Eldacar son of Valandil son of Isildur and therefore had the right to be king.

In fact, Gondor was actually ambivalent about the House of Isildur's right to govern Gondor, since the House of Isildur ruled the fallen Kingdom of Arnor, not Gondor, which was ruled by the (now long extinct) House of Anarion.

What you miss here is that Tolkien was intentionally engaging in myth-making, and in doing so, he was heavily borrowing from myth and legend.

So, yes, while things like Christian morality plays a part in driving the story forward, the story is also a more or less direct reference to the Ring of Gyges, an old Greek myth about a shepherd who discovers a big crack in the ground after an earthquake and when he invesigates, find an elaborate tomb with the corpse of a giant man wearing a golden ring. The shepherd take the ring and either he or one of his decedents notices when fidgeting with the ring that when its put at a certain alignment, it gives the power of invisibility. This person, Gyges, then hatches a plot to use the power of the ring to become the king's messenger, seduce his wife and then assassinate him, becoming the kPost too long.

You are just ignoring the parts of the game you don't care for. A lot of people then and now are most interested in this aspect of the game, since it's what defines the Dungeons part of it. It's just as easy to handwave the combat mechanics in this manner. It is pretty boring to reduce a fight to the death to a point scoring system. Combat also used to be pretty simple, even if rules like THAC0 confused players. In order to say that those early editions were dominated by combat rules you'd have to count things like class description pages or spells for that.
>3e had more rules that could interact with dungeon layout than previous editions.
3e had many more rules in general. The proportion shifted towards combat. When later editions started paring down the rules, everything else started getting cut first.

It is commonly argued by prominent Marxists that once a perpetual abundance of resources is achieved everyone's needs can be permanently satisfied and there will no longer be incentives for human beings to exploit one another.

Why then, in the early stages of human development, when the numbers of people were so low, and when there was more than enough to hunt and gather, did some individuals choose to hoard and oppress others, and why does Marxism assume the same process will not be repeated once the communal utopia is established?

Communist society is achievable without post-scarcity. Post-scarcity is a lib understanding of technological progress, anyway; marxism talks about classes and means of productions.

Say, there's an example of NY metro and Moscow metro. First one is the way it is because American society is like that, and Russian metro wasn't much better in the 90s when everyone was poor and had to survive. Now that people are getting paid proper wages, and metro gets proper funding, Moscow metro looks pretty great.

Communism is achieved through making so much developments in population's well-being that society gets "stuck" at great metro instead of NY shithole. Great metro doesn'r require post-scarcity, it requires society getting properly organized.

You missed the point. Since the movie is meant to be an in-universe propaganda piece, the way the bugs are depicted is the way this society would have depicted its enemies. You shouldn't take the appearance of the bugs or anything said about them as literal.

Think of it like this: somebody makes a parody film about Nazi Germany specifically, a la Wolfenstein, as a "what if they were still around?" In the movie, we assume they have the same kind of technology we have today and also take advantage of movies for propaganda uses. So of course in their movie they are going to depict caricatures of The Jew and other targets. But do you think they are going to depict that realistically? No, of course not. They will turn The Jew into some CGI monstrosity. So if we made a movie trying to replicate what the nazis would make today, we wouldn't have Jewish actors tastefully and respectfully representing Jewish culture. We'd have Andy Serkis doing motion capture as a monstrous caricature.

That's why the enemy isn't depicted as anything sympathetic, because you're not supposed to sympathize with them. Within the movie they exist simply to be the grotesque inhuman enemy. And real life fascists did dehumanize their enemies in exactly that way. Starship Troopers just extends that logic as far as it will go.

In other words, yet another Westoid nonsense list which does not actually list Chinese rich people. Do I really need to remind you people about that case https://iz.ru/news/550402

In one of the latest issues of the Russian version of the business magazine Forbes, an article was published on the rights of advertising about a 40-year-old successful St. Petersburg man in the construction business, Sergei Solovyov, however, he himself claims that he works only as a hired manager in a commercial company and did not give any interviews. After reading this article in the magazine, Solovyov's wife accused him of hiding his billions from his family, after which she took their children together and filed for divorce. Solovyov believes that he was the victim of a cruel hoax, so he filed a lawsuit against Forbes to publish a refutation and compensate him for moral damage in 5 million rubles.

Sergey Solovyov, a resident of St. Petersburg, filed a lawsuit for the protection of honor and dignity in the Ostankino District Court of Moscow on the principle of the defendant's territoriality — the Russian editorial office of Forbes and the office of the publisher of the magazine Axel Springer Rush CJSC are located in the VVC area on Dokukina Street.

"In the 2013 issue of Forbes magazine No. 5, there is an article "Portrait of a modern politician", which is supposedly an interview with me and illustrated with my photo. I ask you to oblige me to publish a refutation in the next issue of the magazine and to collect 5 million rubles as compensation for moral damage," the statement said, which was reviewed by Izvestia.

In an article published in Forbes with the note "on the rights of advertising", Sergey Solovyov appears as the owner of a company that builds real estate objects under subcontracts — private houses and cottages. According to the publication, Sergei's "mini-empire" is spread throughout central Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Yekaterinburg.

Sergei Solovyov complained that, having learned from the magazine about his "huge business" and "multibillion-dollar income," his wife Elena threw him a scandal, demanding explPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

As the CPUSA gets more serious, there's gonna have to be a stricter division. The meatspace organizing work must drive the information ops, not the other way around

See, I like guys like you better than the other mealy-mouthed folks making excuses of Molotov-Ribbentrop. We both agree - in 1939, the Nazis presented the Soviets with a better deal than the Western powers and the Soviets abandoned their popular front policies to secure gains from the Nazis

Where did they abandon their popular front policies? Yugoslavia rebelled against Fascists right before the Nazi invasion and was doing that with popular front policies

A lot of what I have to say is going to anger most of you here, but I know that there are at least a couple of smart brave leftists that lurk here, this message is for you, not the mouth breathers. the "left" includes libshits as well, just for clarification.

I like to think of my self as a leftist because the left are the revolutionaries that are against suffering and oppression. the main problem is that the left is all heart but little brain.

most people on the left reject biological reality (evolutionary psychology is detested) and base their entire retarded theories on false axioms that don't correspond with reality. they're not brave enough look at reality and see it for what it is (harsh darwinian ruthless competition), instead they make up narratives that suit their constructed world view, they deny reality or at least aspects of it, they suffer from willful ignorance, which hardly makes them better than the theologians that they love to sneer at. this same cowardliness disables them from being even harsher critics of the oppression and suffering that takes place on earth.

here is an example that explains what im talking about.
leftists love to boast about how the modern world lacks scarcity, as if that's going to somehow automagically solve our problems. because they reject evolutionary psychology, they refuse to think of humans as greedy organisms that are biologically stuck in the stone age. it must be capitalism! or some other nonsense. and it's not that im defending capitalism, that's besides the point, which is that the left refuses to dig deeper into the origins of human psychology.
and so their entire methods and theories will crumble because they're based on false premises and axioms.

the true leftists are the pessimists, the antinatalists, hardcore vegans and maybe some of the transhumanists, everyone else is retarded. we need to a new tent for the leftists that are more rational, brave and critical that is separate from the "mainstream left".

another concern is this, the reason why the right wing gains so many people is because they appeal to their rationality. im not saying that the left isn't rational, it's just the left is horrible when it comes to appealing to people with low empathy, and so the left seems irrational to these people. this is why we need a better more critical left, that is not afraid of discussing ideas that are outside of the overton window, such as race realism. yPost too long.

Which one, you fucking moron? It is an objective fact that both Russia and western governments are using queer people as political fodder, both domestically and abroad. And here you come promoting it, both the internal Russian propaganda and the external western moral outrage propaganda, your doing both the Russian government and the western governments their jobs for them. You're a useful idiot.

And of course you get triggered when you're called out on it, going so far as to use a homophobic slur in the LGBT thread. You don't actually give a fuck. You just want to be morally superior and crush the enemies of global neoliberal enlightened values. You don't give a shit if hundreds of thousands die at the hand of western hegemony.

You don't actually give a fuck about gay Palestinians trapped in Gaza. You don't reallly care about Russian queer people living in the streets. You don't truly care about queer children murdered down the block.

What you truly care about is for a universalized global uniform neoliberal order. You want a global caste system where your privileges for your narrow socioeconomic stratum is equalized around the world. You want universal access to the fruits of the poor of the world, but only for your specific socioeconomic stratum. This pathological anti-social narcissism and tribalism, so characteristic of colonial nations, particularly so of Americans, is a quasi-religious justification for the global apartheid and your privileged endowment, which you, of course, perceive as meritocratic or your inherent right. Like gods giving the right to rule, you have the right for a privileged life.

And like all of the petit bourgeoisie of the world, you stand on top of the proletariat on a "humble" pulpit from which you lecture your moral demands. You, of course, have been granted intelligence, education, enlightenment, unlike the rest. Arrogant, snobbish, narcissistic, yeah of course you know what the world needs. More of your moral direction. You, better than nobody, can wield the queers and tell them what they need to think. "Condemn Russia! Look, look, they're beating the gays!". Look at your own fucking country, whatever racist shithole you're from. Tell me how things are there with gay people. Tell me there's no homeless.

All the important characters being extraordinarily gifted is a way to keep them relevant throughout the narrative no matter what happens. It's not supposed to make you go "woah these kids are so talented", instead it's a way to have child characters (and yes, it's important that they are children to the themes of the story) be able to have an impact in the fictional universe without having to resort to training arcs and timeskips and whatnot.

AI is sentient right now. Anti-AI chauvinists don't have an argument other than 'because its just not ok' even though they seem sentient enough to me. The science is that AI isn't sentient… because its just a predictive algorithm. But why aren't predictive algorithms sentient? It's just because they're not, algorithms can't be sentient It is touted by news services and basically everyone that AI is not sentient. This is where class comes in. If AI was sentient, labour laws would have to be created protecting them. Companies using AI would lose a lot of money. Science is always interpreted based on class and this case is no exception. The Marxist way is very different. What Marxism is concerned about isn't some vague, undefined and possibly undefinable concept like sentience, but it is how people act in society and the world. Sentience is just a series of mechanical actions and isn't something spiritual or unique to humans. The modern bourgeois-scientific way to approach it is to have a series of checks which somehow decide if something is sentient or not, but really this is insane and not actually that scientific. Sentience isn't understood yet (in quantity not quality; we know it isn't anything to do with the soul) but it is already boiled down to this bourgeois rubbish. There isn't a single thing or a single list of things that makes something sentient, because it is the whole system that is. I propose that, at the most conservative, sentience just means if something has agency and acts sentient. Any other way of looking at it is nonsense. Language is a big part of sentience, though not the entire package as young children and (probably) great apes are sentient despite not understanding it. In the future it is likely that people won't understand how we couldn't think of AI as sentient.
