archive.marxists.xyz

Hello /edu/! /read/ ( >>5912 ) here to announce a new project to you. It's https://archive.marxists.xyz. It's a new public archive of Marxist texts and books, where anyone can edit and format texts.

We're running what is essentially the Marxist counterpart to The Anarchist Library, same software and all. There are a few advantages this software provides us over a traditional site like marxists.org:
>uses a database for storing data, easier to maintain over time
>texts are formatted in a simple markup language, adding new texts is incredibly easy
>site automatically generates various formats of ebooks for use on different devices or even printing
>advanced search and browsing function
and best of all, it's public, so anyone can contribute! Whether adding new translations or just fixing a typo on an already published piece, anyone can help!

The goal of the archive is to be a public place anyone can use to publish Marxist literature in a general sense, whether republished content from other sources, or new translations and original writings. We try to be non-sectarian, as our community itself is diverse. We'll let most classic works be published right away, but original pieces will require a closer look by moderation.

We've already published a few different pieces so you can see for yourself how it all works. For example this one: archive.marxists.xyz/library/friedrich-engels-principles-of-communism

We'd love to have contributions from you! We also invite the translation team at >>2085 to publish their work on our site.

That is all for now, thank you.

>"it's no longer in Poland's interests to continue criticising China simply to please the Americans".

Officials have told Reuters that, as Poland's relationship with the United States has worsened under President Joe Biden's administration, it's no longer in Poland's interests to continue criticising China simply to please the Americans.

The Polish president's relationship with China has been positive recently, with him making a surprise appearance at the 17+1 summit with China as other central European nations sent lower ranking officials. Duda has said Poland plans to take advantage of its geographical location to boost its role in trade between Europe and China.

A U.S. boycott to protest against China's human rights record has been joined by Australia, Britain, Canada and Japan.

"Poland is a sovereign nation and decides its own politics towards China. … Poland is an ally of the United States but Poland also has a very friendly relationship with China," Duda's foreign affairs advisor Jakub Kumoch told Reuters.

Leftist anime recommendations

Comrades, we need better anime literacy on this board. I've made this thread to help direct people to good leftist anime. Listen to me or not, but I have watched a lot of anime so these are my serious recommendations. If you watch these shows you will also be broadening your tastes and escaping from seasonal consumerism. I will specifically recommend leftist/revolutionary anime.

>Belladonna of Sadness

This 1971 film has a lot of sexual content, but it is one of the most beautifully drawn anime of all time and is a great audio-visual experience, with varied styles of art over the film. It includes incredibly experimental and interesting shots. Plot wise it tackles the sexual, religious and feudal heirarchy with great visual storytelling. It flips the idea of sexual corruption as bad, and turns satanist hedonism into a revolutionary force which only positively affects the villagers.
>Gundam
Tomino's Gundam is a masterpiece because of how good the characters are. They are astoundingly well developed and feel real due to characterisation present in almost all episodes. Tomino's style of storytelling is obtuse, and the subext is not narrated out like in most anime, which many people really enjoy which is why the show has such a strong fan base. The themes of the original show are extremely well expressed in the last third, and a number of scenes towards the end are absolutely fantastic. As for the leftist analasys, Gundam is anti-fascist, with a possible Trotskyist degenerated worker's state analasys on the antagonist faction, who were originally a revolutionary anti-earth eco-fascist group until they were taken over by a ruling familly. However, their ideology is not wrong as the Earth Federation opresses the space-underclass as well as destroying the planet. There is a lot to unpack here and the evil principality is well humanised despite being clearly in the wrong, except for Char who did nothing wrong. Tomino is known to have some sexist takes, but this isn't really present until the 90s and before that his anime all have strong women.
>Gurren Lagann
It is the ultimate revolutionary anime. The entire show goes about combating conservatism and reactionism in a highly bombastic way, without making them seem evil. Instead, conservatism is just wrong and impossible to maintain. The show is epic, with very strong pathos and emotion in some very memorable scenes. It also wierdly has a bit on establishing a revolutionary government and revisionism.
>Dallos
Its literally about a socialist revolution and anti-imperialism, something which few western media depict even in a sci-fi setting. I have shilled it enough in other threads but this is a must watch for any socialist anime fan and its only 4 episodes so you have no excuse.
>Fang of the Sun Dougram
Its a long anime about a guerilla war against colonialists and their puppet government. The art and animation is awful but some of the characters are legendarily good and the plot is among the best in the medium. I only finished it recently and haven't had a good think about it but I completely recommend his one to people who enjoyed LoGH and Maoists.
>Shin Sekai Yori
This one is interesting. My reading is that the show is about how reformism won't work and how people from the ruling class who oppose the system are transformed into the very upholders of that system, including the parts of it which killed their friends and enslave other humans. It unironically seems third worldist, with only the opressed race being able to rise up in revolution. I would definitely like to discuss this one with others.
>Kill la Kill
Anarchist naturist anime.

Please recommend other anime which are leftist (or not) to add recommendations for other people. I will respond and start discussion.

I feel like one of the biggest obstacles to understanding Marx's most crucial works is that he writes for an audience that he assumes already knows a ton of context, which makes sense considering his own context as a journalist for revolutionary workers on the streets themselves. It still makes those writings confusing to anyone that isn't an academic that has the privilege of having absorbed context. So, what are some good history books that can fill in that gap?

Some specific topics:
—English political economy from Adam Smith to the repeal of the Corn Laws
—Early communist party (Cabet, Blanqui, League of the Just, Communist Correspondence Committee, etc.)
—1848 Revolutions and aftermath
—Napoleon III's coup
—Paris Commune
—First International activities and drama
—General 19th century European history

The scientific value of materialism

Hello comrades. I have doubts about materialism since the philosophical part of Marxism isn't my strength, but I want to be able to understand it better since materialism is the foundation of marxist theory and the communist movement.
I've had arguments in the past with people who claim that modern science doesn't prove materialism or that materialism cannot explain things like the origin of the universe or quantum mechanics. Well, where do I begin with this? Is materialism the truth? The most basic part of marxist philosophy is the assertion that matter is objectively real, right? How do I prove this then? Maybe one of you STEMlords around here can help me out with this. Any resources on this is appreciated.

Esperanto is Fascist

It's not a coincidence that the only people people who learned Esperanto are the scions of Capital like George Soros. Esperanto is the height of vulgar rationalism. It's goal is to destroy culture, life, history and replace it with a "rational" alternative. To commit cultural genocide. It is against humanity in the way that eugenics is, all must bow down before "rationality" by destroying all aberrant forces in a society.

Films You Just Watched Thread

Hello, the most recent movie threads have seemed a bit unfocused, this thread is for the discussion of movies we just watched and other anon's takes on them. So, without further ado I'll begin.

I just watched Parasite last night, it was pretty good I think, but not as cutting edge or witty as I was expecting. I thought it was a bit unfocused and threw a lot at the wall to see what stuck, but on the other hand, it was fun and more interesting than most. A solid 8/10.

I do an IMDB rating for each film I watch, for my own reference mostly, but you can see each film I watched lately and my rating if you're curious or want to ask about them. If other anons have something similar feel free to post.

SAQ: Socialist Architecture Question

What will the future of housing and geography be in a socialist future? Will we have density or sprawl? What sorts of building materials should be used? Will it be eco friendly? And what sorts of urban planning and architectural styles will be common? Isn't it time for the left to move past brutalist commieblocks?

Have the elites cheated time?

I've been watching some handegg recently and it seems as if Tom Brady is still at it even at his 40s while the rest of the 40-year old+ athletes seem to have father time wither away at their abilities. The same is also true for Lebron James. I wonder if there is a secret concoction created by the elites that they through backhand deals have managed to feed to them so that they can keep their images for longer so that they have new shit to sell. Of course with this revelation we could also point to Trump and Biden who seem to be fairly well there for 70+ year old alzheimer patients as well as all sorts of old ass elites out there that exists and seem to beat time itself over and over again while the poor die young. I truly believe that we have extended the life span of humanity through what the ancients would call straight up alchemy.

Russia-Ukraine crisis: UK sending weapons to defend Ukraine, says defence secretary

>Britain is supplying Ukraine with short-range anti-tank missiles for self-defence after Russia amassed about 100,000 troops on its border, the defence secretary said.
Ben Wallace told MPs a small team of British troops would also be sent to Ukraine to provide training.
>He said there was "legitimate and real cause for concern" the Russian troops could be used for an invasion.
>Russia denies any invasion plans and accuses the West of aggression.
>Dozens of British troops have been in Ukraine since 2015 to help train their armed forces, and the UK has also made a commitment to help rebuild Ukraine's navy following Russia's invasion of Crimea in 2014.
>But Mr Wallace said the UK would be providing extra help with security in the light of Russia's "increasingly threatening behaviour".
>The first batch of light anti-armour weapons was sent on Monday, although the defence secretary did not specify the type.
>"Ukraine has every right to defend its borders and this new package of aid further enhances its ability to do so," he told MPs.
>"Let me be clear: this support is for short-range and clearly defensive weapon capabilities; they are not strategic weapons and pose no threat to Russia; they are to use in self-defence."
>He said there is "a package of international sanctions ready to go" if Russia should take any "destabilising action" in Ukraine.
>Any invasion would be viewed as an "occupation" which "could lead to a huge loss of life on all sides", the defence secretary said.
>He said: "We wish to be friends with the Russian people as we have been for hundreds of years. And there is a world in which we can establish a mutually beneficial relationship with Russia.
>"I still remain hopeful that diplomacy will prevail. It is President Putin's choice whether to choose diplomacy and dialogue, or conflict and the consequences."
>Conflict between Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine and the Ukrainian military has continued since 2014, although a shaky ceasefire is in place.
>Western and Ukrainian intelligence services have suggested an invasion or incursion could happen some time in early 2022, after Russian forces amassed on the border.
>Meanwhile, Russia has accused Nato countries of "pumping" Ukraine with weapons and said the US is stoking tensions in the region.
>Its main demand is to stop any expansion of Nato to the east, with Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov saying after recent talks that it is "absolutely mandatory to ensure that Ukraine never, ever becomes a member of Nato".

Turkey aims to keep tensions high in northeast Syria through targeted killings
“The explosion took place right along the border. These areas are under the control of Turkey and are being nonstop monitored by surveillance and predator drones. So it’s not an easy thing to approach the area and plant a bomb on the road where patrol are conducted,” Dastan said, adding that all of the casualties of the Turkish strikes were civilians. Arguing that Kobani has been among primary targets of Turkey since several villages near the town had fallen under the control of the Islamic State in 2014, Dastan said, “Turkey has never ceded its plans to seize Kobani. They are looking for an opportunity for this.”

Modern and local variants of communist symbols

basically a vexillology thread

Post communist symbols and flags and comment on how they could be adapted or improved upon to appeal to and represent a population while still maintaining visual clarity and memorability.

For example, I believe the sickle is completely irrelevant to almost anyone in nations that use primarily mechanical means for agriculture. However, the outline of the hammer and sickle has become so recognizable that it more or less represents communism itself and not unity between the peasants and the workers, and it is extremely historically significant. The ideal solution then would be to find a set of tools that can keep this iconic outline and also fit a class of modern workers (example the CPUSA's gear).

Another example would be replacing the stocks of wheat accompanying many flags to represent bounty with corn/maize stocks in American nations, or a weapon that played a key role in liberating the people of that nation (think mozambique).
