Blackrock is buying up all remaining American homesBlackrock is buying every single family house they can find, paying 20-50% above asking price and outbidding normal home buyers.
/prc/ - People's Republic of China generalA general thread for all China related discussion.
SnitchingEthically speaking, is there ever a time when snitching on other comrades is justified or is it always wrong?
Failure of the German Communist PartyWhy did the Communists fail in Weimar Germany? I understand that there was an economic disaster, but shouldn't have been a positive for their electoral chances? Was it pure incompetence? Highly conservative society was too resistant? Out-maneuvered by capitalists?
I fucked upI mixed sex with politics
Eastern fascist music is better than Western fascist musicBefore any autist spergs out, no I'm not a fascist, I'm not saying fascism is good or anything like that. This is about the music they make (or quasi-fascists, nationalists, etc). I think we can all agree that the typical fascist music we are used to is awful. The music made by Western fascists such as in Nazi Germany or Francoist Spain is more often than not very boring, uninspiring, and repetitive. All those Nazi miltiary marches sound the same, they're all quite mediocre.
/leftybritpol/ - Free the P editionIt's all over for Edwin Poots - decades of scheming has led to less than a month of power. Who's gonna get in next big - gay Jeff - who's your favourite?
What happened to quality under capitalism?I can't be the only one to notice that most goods and services feel like they were made by someone who gave a rats ass whether or not people actually liked their shit, seemingly every car made after 1972 breaks down after what 2-4 years, modernhigh tech ai integrated phones constantly breaking after 1 or to drops compared to phones made in fucking 1940s that could last decades, fucking metal slug of all things somehow degrading in quality from a simplistic but fun action arcade shooter into a pay 2 win, microtransactions bargain brand mobile game that plays so horrendously that you can feel the developers shame in making this horrid product in each stage of development.
The retardedness of fascistsAfter reading through threads like this >>281021 its hard not to come to the conclusion that most fascists are intellectually lazy schizo retards who can only argue in terms of memes that become ever more shorthand until they are absolutely incomprehensible to normies and anyone who hasn't been watching right wing youtube and reading /pol/ since 2015 or something, they are literally fucking replaceable with markov bots, they will drag you down with their retardedness and beat you with experience, its like their brains are fucking goldfish tier and they tune out anything longer than 1 sargon in length
Anarchism General 3.0 -Orsetti EditionThread for the discussion of Anarchism.
Thoughts on the Hololive Coco/Haato Taiwan and China incident?Not much of a vtuber fan, I only occasionally watch clips, but I'm saddened to hear that even something as innocent as the vtuber sphere has been infected with politics and will breed new reactionaries out of lonely people with nothing better to do. Is no form of escapism safe from politics anymore?
Birthrates under socialismAre we in favor of increasing the birthrate after socialism is established?
HOLY FUCK RIGHT WINGERS ARE SENSITIVEI used to think it was leftists that were the overrly emotional and stupid ones as a teen before realizing it was the other way around just today on my 22nd birthday. I went to 16chans pol board and briefly stated the fact to the neo nazis and reactionary thing members on that site that they would all get shot by the u.s. and european police force if they tried to execute their autistic ideas and they ended up crying over the thread, deleted it for portraying reality and then the next fucking post was dedicated to left wing censorship, on ordinary /pol/ all I had to say was not all black men are criminals for a fucking shitstorm of autistic retards to start shilling and bumping my thread in anger before turning the entire post into a reddit circlejerk. Its get even better(most of the right view themselves as intellectually superior especially male reactionaries due to watching too many sjw owned clips on youtube and browsing the abhorrent mess that is twitter every fucking day without ever bothering to get into debates with someone with opposing or different views that actually bothers to read something in their god dambed lives) when you meet them in real life because they will say abhorrently retarded shit in public and all you have to do to see them meltdown is stand up for yourself and they'll endlessly seethe if not freakout in public like what happened with that white lady screaming in a fucking walmart about wanting mexicans to go back to mexico. Fuckin love those guys not because I like em but because I like laughing at em
Nordicism Debunk+ Poltard Hate threadThis thread will be used for the disscussion how the rightoids aka white supremacists love to claim they were muh aryanz egyptianz etc. I hate talked with some white supremacists about the usage of the term aryan and they started yelling aryans were muh whitey. I had enough of this shit Its just more similar to the black nationalists whom the nazis hate like to say how they were the kings of egypt.

Communism is not worth fighting forPeople here talks a lot about how the communist movement failed but nobody sees that people failed the communist movement.
I have never been as supportive of jewish bankers and israel as I am nowI can understand why theyre disliked in much of the planet but when you stop and look at societies that have alot of them vs societies that dont or what humanity was like when they were persecuted vs today you kinda want them to hold alot of power. one only has to realize that through the near 100 years when apartheid allowed white minorities to rule the country there wasnt a SINGLE year where homicide or poverty rates declined until apartheid ended and the ANC sold the country off to central bankers or why MENA is a fucking hellhole for most arab muslims compared to israel whos apartheid laws are noticeably less hostile towards nonmuslims. I dont like or hate jews but christ knowing this at least makes me want them to keep israel for themselves despite their actions towards palestinians

The plan is to read 1 chapter per week (breaking up chapter 3 into the 3 lectures).

Hitler-Stalin contractLately I've gotten into an argument with a friend of mine about the USSR's role in WW2, especially the splitting up of Poland. He argues that the USSR collaborated with nazi germany in taking over Poland and also started resisting the bazi war effort way too late.

Material explanation for the semiconductor chip shortageWhat is the material cause of the global shortage of chips, which is currently responsible for these yee yee ass GPU and cars prices? I want something more in-depth than "muh cryptocurrency miners" or "muh self driving deep learning cars"
Rhetorical StrategyI'm not immersed into these political debate chatrooms so I'm hoping someone here can provide some ideas. I came upon a real problem the other day that I believe would apply to many situations others could find themselves in: There was an average person complaining about their life and the state of the world
It's overWhy is Maduro such a cuck? Wtf went wrong in Venezuela? Not a bait thread, i'm actually curious. Could this have been avoided? If yes, how?
What is "revisionism" and why is it bad?Some people on the left (mostly Maoists and Hoxhaists) talk about "revisionism" a lot. They say the current government of the PRC is revisionist. They say the government of the USSR after Stalin's death was revisionist. But what actually is revisionism? Like, how was Khruschev's USSR materially different from Stalin's, and why should I care? Is revisionism just "anything I don't like" on steroids?

Neither natalists nor malthusians understand socialism.None of you get it. There are so many people here who want to argue for natalist policy, or bachelors tax, or for degrowth and population control. But literally fucking none of you actually understand socialism and what collective ownership actually fucking means. Capitalism as a system obfuscates the environmental and material costs of society, collectivism strips away those obfuscations.

Holy fuck Americans are genuinely slavesI briefly browsed the crime sections of cnn and fox news only to realize that everytime the criminal/terrorist was black or brown there was an immediate collective of people circle jerking and projecting their power fantasies on it but when the criminal was white or asian there was a collective moment of cognitive dissonance and suddenly there talks of mental illness,poverty, and aims to actually make america safer. I dug deeper and I became even more disappointed as time passed

Culture of /pol/Even though it is a reactionary echo-chamber unfit for legitimate political discussion, somehow it still gains more and more posters every year.

Losurdo on ŽižekSo since both of these folks seems to be quite popular here I thought it would be cool to share a chapter from an untranslated book by Losurdo (Western Marxism: how it was born, how it died, how it can rise again) dedicated to Žižek.

Soviet Wars 1917-1923(31)A million sides, constant changes of allies, a bunch of events - sort of the First World War in the South, in the Crimea and in the Urals, the latest fleet operations against the Germans and the Entente in the Baltic, literally Syria in the Ukraine, the Red Army attacking British tanks with bayonets near Arkhangelsk, the Wild West with Basmachi in Central Asia, Latin American partisanship in Siberia, White Genghis Khan is plotting something, White Czechs are fleeing from the Red Czechs with tsarist gold, finally the fight against anti-Soviet uprisings and simply hellish gang violence.
Why does Leftypol hate Poles?Americans, Israelis, and Anglos I can kinda understand (imperialism, settler colonialism, blah blah blah), but why hate Poles? What the fuck have they ever done to anyone? They're history's victims, being treated as a plaything for a number of European Empires (Germs, Russians, Austrians, etc.). Sure, they vote for right-wing parties, but so do a number of nationalities that Leftypol doesn't shit on (Russians, Hungarians, Indians, etc.).

Fascism and JapanWas Japan truly fascist, or just associated with fascism by association with the other Axis Powers (+ the contemporaneous Francoist Spain) and the similarities between their nationalism and (in some cases) brutal expansionism?
CollapseThere's nothing anyone can do to stop the collapse. Everything they do results in post-scarcity. Itcomes down to the laws of physics and the laws of supply and demand, once the cost of energy and transportation complete their plummet (this decade) the cost of everything else will begin to plummet, and no matter what they do with UBI it will be rendered obsolete. Its like the same reason we dont go back to using horses as transportation when we have better shit. The game of ownership and trade will soon be obsolete. The institutions wont be able to function
/gsg/We have a HoI4 thread but why not just have a Grand Strategy general thread? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people here who play the other grand stratgy games/think hoi4 is too dumbed down shit.

Fuck orientalismI'm a way too old otaku who's always been into a lot of underground Japanese subculture shit thanks to learning the language but even I have to be amazed at the sort of shallow orientalism that's going on on imageboards, like cumming at sakura trees, larping as an imperialist or making Japan seem as the last trad ethnostate (it really isn't), or more recently and what prompted me to make this thread, someone posting a picture of their room with a huge ass poster of Tokyo's subway map. Like really? What's the appeal of that? Sure, he might have been a train otaku, but nothing else in the picture indicated that.
Please stop doing drugs, if you dont use them please dont get into themThey're really bad for your health being that most drugs are illegal which means most drug manufacturers make their goods without care for pollutants that can fuck up your mental and physical health.

/SEA/ - Southeast Asia GeneralVolume 4: Finally some actual riots edition
How to not be upset by this shitty world?I don't need to tell you about the problems, you know that already, but how can I feel like there's any meaning to this shit? We're not winning, that's plain to see, and everything just gets worse and worse, both for me and the world more generally. Maybe there will be change eventually, maybe for the better or maybe not, but how can I survive decades more of this miserable existence? What's the point in any of this? Why live in an evil world?
What is the endgame of the democratic party?They are met with universal disliking including from other democrats, it's been shown time and time and again that their policies(like restricted gun rights) work towards a lower standard of living for Democrat run regions like detroit, or los angeles, it's been shown that they produce massive amounts of propaganda that work towards division on every aspect of identity including race, gender, sexuality, faith and economic status. Do they have plans for the future of how they will be perceived and what their voters are willing to put up with in the coming years or will they simply implode on themselves
Should pornography become illegal?In the future, possibly in a few decades from now, as technology progresses it will be possible to steal other people's voices, faces and bodies, and make realistic fake photographs, tapes or AI-generated "deep fakes." For example the average shmoe could scan a photo your mom and/or take the audio of your mom talking in a Facebook video and use a fake porn generator software to place her in a realistic fake video having sex with a horse, or how about political adversaries being framed with fake audio saying they want to bomb the president's car or admitted to sex trafficking underage prostitutes. While it's not a reality now since even Hollywood still can't make realistic-looking CGI, to pretend this won't eventually become a reality where anyone can record anyone's likeness with their smartphone (or contact lenses' camera) and generate 3d models or whatever of them and make fake videos / audio recordings of them is naive.
YOU and ME and HERAll hail Azathot, the Slut Sultan, the Netorare Chaos at the Center of the Universe. Unless you're more into Yandere Cthulhu, that is.
Are collapseniks/doomers just cowards?Whenever I read places like /r/collapse it honestly just looks like a bunch of upper middle class westoids who have never experienced any amount of material suffering in life losing their shit over a future where things like war and famine can disrupt their living conditions. I believe ecological degradation (not just climate change, the full spectrum of destruction) will have catastrophic impacts on human lives within this century, but it’s quite something to see people who are the least likely to face the worst affects losing their shit, being fatalistic, and desperately trying to doompill everyone. I’m like, uygha most likely your life will revert to pre-industrial conditions at worst, the global wasteland you fear wouldn’t happen for centuries probably, you’re just scared of losing air conditioning.

Comfort womenThe only effective way to stop shootings and improve men's mental health and happiness levels is to have state paid and controlled comfort women. The state would identify weirdos and send pretty girls to their homes to be used as fuck toys. I know it sounds icky but there's no better solution.

Ive reached "that" stage in my lifeAll my debts, expenditures and personal demands have been paid for meaning all I'm working for is quite literally nothing, just meaninglylessly accumulating surplus wealth that I couldn't possibly know what to do with all while I have god knows how many years left of my life that looks like it's all gonna be spent doing what I am now. Meaninglessly accumulating wealth that'll all mean nothing when inflation catches up, what the fuck do I do in all that time and what the fuck do I do with all my fucking money
Absolute Monarchy and CapitalismAbsolutism was the most dominant form of government to maintain a feudal economic base. With the advent of capitalism, it got replaced by liberal democracy. There are obviously non-liberal forms of maintaining capitalism like Fascism, but could Absolutism also make sense of maintaining Capitalism? It obviously wouldn't like before since feudal economic realities and class mechanism are here anymore, but still? Is it even compatible with a capitalist civil society?

Why did boomers ans porkies make the outside world so alienating?We have no community centers, no parks, no public workout facilities, nothing but Megamalls and highways.
