>unintentionally destroys marxist historical materialism and social evolution
Maybe the relation between material conditions and social forms is not as simple as marxists led us on, and they did this in a racist attempt to prove European societies as more civilized and that these civilized people have heightened self-consciousness than people from other societies.

Marxists keep rehashing Marx and Lenin because a sober, Marxist sociological analysis of modern society leads to some very depressing conclusions, which cause people to either burn out and retreat from the left or turn to dengism/anarchism.

Revolution is impossible in global north. It will continue to exploit global south to appease its arrogant population leading lavish lifestyles. If a global south tries to do something to get out of this trap, their entire country will be destroyed.
Apart from class relations in a particular county, you also have to analyze global caste system.

Other people already addressed your other stupidity, but the meme of slave to feudal to capitalism to socialism is not a rule. If you understand what it means, the anthropologic background in which such a meme happens, then that is the point of it. And it doesn't have to apply everywhere. Marx was aware of this, and was doing a shit ton of research on alternative "development" tracks, but died.

That's not what marxists say. They believe in a very deterministic social evolutionary model and that's why they go "noooo you can't into communism if you didn't suffer enough through capitalism"

Half a million fighting for liberation
>At least 500,000 people participating a strike due to a labor leader’s arrest in South Korea. Power to the people!
>Workers in South Korea — from across the construction, transportation, service, and other sectors — walked off their jobs in a one-day general strike. The strike will be followed by mass demonstrations in urban centers and rural farmlands, culminating in a national all-people’s mobilization in January 2022.
>The Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU), the country’s largest labor union umbrella with 1.1 million members, is organizing these mobilizations in a broad-based front with South Korea’s urban poor and farmers.
>The 15 detailed demands of the strike can be summarized as fitting within three basic areas:
>Abolish “irregular work” (part-time, temporary or contract labor with little or no benefits) and extend labor protections to all workers;
>Give workers power in economic restructuring decisions during times of crisis;
>Nationalize key industries and socialize basic services like education and housing.

Comrades, around the world the workers are rising up. In my own country, binmen and train drivers are both striking as the cop26 climate conference comes to Glasgow, this will leave delegates without transport and the city in a mess, a strong message to the leaders of the world direct from trade and unions.

worth mentioning, everyone that end up in the game tried to play by the rules to improve their conditions, and got fucked by an unfair world/competition. And end up in the another, final this time, unfair world/competition.
We have a factory worker, fired, that try to make his own business, eventually end in crippling debt and go to the game to save his ill mother
We have a NK emigrant that came in sk for better life, lost her parents in the process, got scammed, end up as a shitty criminal with her borther in an orphanage
The bengladesh illegal worker, come for better life for his family, get fucked by porky not paying him for his work and hurt in the dangerous work, has to flee in panic for having tried to get his salary paid
the trader, as everyone in this work, is pushed to take insane risks, and when it backfire, it all suddenly rest on his shoulders and not on his bank's
some games are really about your early choices in life in capitalist society, the one where you choose a simple shape without knowing any rules for example, typically metaphor for education in capitalist society.
Putting you in situations where the ones you worked with before and like, end up as your competition.
All this, because it profit to handful of super porkies who are bored ? How much exploitation and worker suffering happened to get bezos in space do you think ?
and framing it all as an "opportunity", because in this brutal world, freedom is just being able to accept your exploitation (and the competition with the others loosers) and massive risk of sudden death (more than 99%, although they dont know that…), for a slim chance marketed to you, rather than slowly dying out in misery

also pretty sure the author himself was pretty clear its a metaphor for capitalism, its just hard to miss

Does it feel like socialism is kind of a dead zone at the moment? Sure we have all sorts of protests and shit going on but it seems as if socialism is losing ground. Even on leftypol, redscare and stupidpol it seems as if the eternal capitalism will continue to live on and it seems like most socialists and leftists hate each other and constantly try to demean one another. The right simply does not do this at all. What is up with that? Every socialist hates one another but the individualistic right has no issues with sucking down their personal problems and getting along with one another.

Honestly I don't see it as too different from when Google employees walked out a few years ago. Most employees at these giant tech companies build out the systems that stream or host content, and have no say in the management of what content is coming through the systems they themselves built. Withholding their labor is based regardless of the idpol shit, it means Netflix higher ups do not have full control over Netflix's means of production, in this case both the digital systems and the technical know-how of engineers, designers, and productfags.

Wen Tiejun's book, Ten Crises, has been translated to english and is available for free. The book covers a history of the Chinese economy since 1949. Get it from the link below tor user can't post attachment :-(
https://our-global-u.org/oguorg/en/wen-tiejun-ten-crises/

>Professor Wen Tiejun, the author of this book, has a wide reader- ship across official institutions, academics, mass media, and grassroots communities. Apart from being a well-known expert of agrarian issues and policy advisor, he is a scholar/activist who has initiated the rural reconstruction movement in contemporary China (2000—the present), particularly promoting agro-ecology, sustainability, and rural regenera- tion. He is deeply involved in defending the livelihoods of small peas- antry in his whole life. In 1968, when he was 17 years old, he was sent to mountain areas in Shanxi Province to work as a peasant. Then he worked as a truck driver for 2 years and later as service worker for 4 years. He entered university when he turned 28 years old. His world vision has been shaped by 11 years of working with and learning from peasants and workers. These grassroots experiences have great influence on his rural sustainability experiments and policy research. He has delivered lectures and provided training programs to tens of thousands of students, peasants, peasant workers, and government officers. He has also delivered dozens of lectures and interviews overseas.


The book comprises of five chapters:
>Chapter 1: The First Crisis 1949–1950: This chapter describes how
China in 1949–1950 dealt with the decade-long hyperinflation crisis that had crumbled the old regime. The crux was how to keep the speculative economy at bay by consolidating a real economy.

>Chapter 2: The Second to Fourth Crises 1958–1976: This chapter describes how China got an opportunity to receive technological aid from the Soviet Union and therefore achieved rapid development in industry. After breaking up with the Soviet Union, China sank into persistent economic crises, which induced its tragic decade of political turmoil. However, China also took the occasion to become a sovereign country even though it got caught in animosity by both superpowers

Because their opponents were socialists, i.e. actual human beings, capable of being things other than tools of turning capital into more capital.

France and Britain, being social democratic states employed deterrence, China and Soviet Union pledged No First Use, opposed nuclear weapon usage, and exercised restraint. Russia dropped the pledge, and created Status-6. US always favored first/decapitation strike. India started being vague, if they aren't lying. Israel literally tells nobody how much nukes they have, or their policy on using them.

Chongryon, the main pro-DPRK organization of Japan-resident Koreans is not against the gays/lesbians etc. and teaches about them in the schools they run for Koreans.
From their official news site Choson Sinbo (in Japanese):

The argument implied is obviously the overt usage of LGBT issues for imperialism, with NGOs for LGBT rights being objectively tools for imperialism. Same with "human rights", but now that LGBT has been accepted by the West it is used for that agenda too.

When North Korean dress modestly, don't make out on the street, don't wear highly sexualized bikinis and don't legalize porn, it must necessarily be an expression of anti-LGBR sentiment and sexism for the imperialist narrative.

This is actually very prudent. If people not affiliated with the strike start coming onto the picket line, it is very likely that would violate the statutes and therefore law enforcement would have to get involved and arrest the strikers.

Let's think about this in context. This is an isolated strike in a fairly non-important industry. The workers, as far as I can tell, haven't asked for people to come onto the picket line. How helpful do you think it'll be if a bunch of DSA adventurist retards come over to start shit only to get the strikers arrested? How helpful do you honestly think that would be for the strike? Because of the relative non-importance of the strike within the American economy and supply chain, the strikers are not at all ready for a confrontation with the State.

Trust the workers, anon. It's too early to start doing shit. If they ask for bodies, by all means come over. But if they haven't, understand that by coming over anyway you're just giving law enforcement and the capitalist the excuse needed to crush this strike early on. Don't be an adventurist.

Why did Stalin's government throw so many people in jail - and here I mean those who they KNEW FOR A FACT were innocent of the things they were accused of. And was 600,000 deaths really needed? It's a bit much, and ~20 years after the victory of the revolution. Such repressions are a must in the "termidor" era of revolution, but not after such a long time.
How could the party, the government and the guy himself handled the situation better?

Forgot to add that to justify going to war and destroying Yugoslavia they claimed the Serbs killed 200,000 people when in actuality it was a few thousand and not just the Serbs but all sides.

The resultant war killed 180,000 people in Yugoslavia

They lie nonstop and anyone who's seen Corbyn or Bernie be turned into anti-semites or watched the black propaganda they've used to invade countries and commit genocides in the last 2 decades should see that they'd have literally no problem declaring some outlandish number (like Yugoslav) when the number actually probably was a few thousand and they were all guilty.

The following video provides information on how Juche is revisionist and that anyone who likes Juche is a anti communist retard. I think the best example of an anti communist retard is "AusJuche" although he may just work for the CIA.

Is not a question about IF but WHEN we'll see them. What I really liked about the Sardaukar was the scene where they silently inserts using anti-grav. Not the same thing as in the Dune-games where they are basically walking tanks.

I really like the E S T H E T I C S, and the wire from the rocket launcer to the breastplate is cute. Cute but probably useless.

But unless you really get the drop of someone and manages to hit ALL your targets AT ONCE, you're pretty much a walking target for a marksman with a 50-cal.

Also, does anyone please have a link to the sacrifical scene in DUNC?

I lost it when they looked like some kind of corpo instant diversity starting pack. Yeah, those in the cities and the fremens in the desert could very well look different.

adding to this, know about the sideroads, alleyways, ladders and rooftops. A friend of mine once hid in an upturned oil drum for 6 hours. You'll need to get good at thinking on your feet, what can be used to misdirect, obstruct and evade?

Can you dash across a busy street to hold up chasers for maybe a few seconds? climb a fense, jump a gate. parkour and free-running will help greatly. Furthermore, see if you can gain sympathisers willing to help you hide in an attic, crawlspace or cellar.

Even in the darkest hour of reaction, their is one thing that we can be optimistic about. Our class enemies by in large are fucking retarded. Most business owners, and ceos, are basically just small business owners and ceos who just won popularity contests. Most of the people who in managment in coroporations are extremly dull, and completly lack strategic thinking. THye are all living day to day and thinking day to day, about what resturant they want to eat at, or if their kid got good school grades, or what car they want to buy. They aren't strategic thinkers. If you want evidence just go talk to you manager for a little bit, every job I've had they were all extremely dull, many of them simply lacked the mental capabilities to properly do their job, and had assistant managers or other helpers who did all their work for them. If anecdotal evidence isn't enough then just look at MySpace, all of the people their just ignored the signs that their company was dying, and just went about their days until they all got jobs somewhere else. Or look at how oblivious the roman empire was to its own collapse, or gorby ignoring the failure of his reforms, or how nazi germany and imperal japan kept denying that they were loosing WW2. All of these people did what they did because they were retards who didn't know what the effects of their actions were. They weren't visionary thinkers or people who analyzed history. They were just a bunch of stumbling idiots. Their is nothing to suggest that the CEOs of the world are different, and their empire will collapse around them as they through parties in their castles, like all emperors of dying empires in history that have came before them.

Porky is based

Yes, the heading/title is clickbait. No, it is not ironic or a shitpost. Compared to the petit-bourgeoisie, the bourgeoisie IS based. STOP SIMPING FOR THE PETIT BOOJ. The petit booj, especially the rural petit booj is even more reactionary and the source of far more rightoid rage than the booj. This is where the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and the Alex Joneses of the world come from.

The full force of neoliberal, malthusian urban technocapital must be unleashed against the barbarians of the hinterlands.

Urbanization is a natural part of the process of proletarianization and therefore progressive. Similarly the process of competition which winnows down the pool of capitalists into smaller and smaller concentrations, into monopolies and oligopolies, is progressive as those companies will ultimately be easier to nationalize than 500 different small mom and pop shops which are inefficient and duplicate tons of work anyway.

Let their farms undercut and bought out, their small businesses driven into the dust, and their towns seized by eminent domain and bulldozed over for agricorps to turn into farmland. Let them be driven into the cities where they can be urbanized and thereby proletarianized. Let capital run it’s course and civilize the savages.

>inb4 some crypto /pol/tards show up to muh blood and soil rural ooga booga


BTW people who deny this are what Marx and Engels would have called bourgeois socialists or petit bourgeois socialists. They want to undo capitalism by going back to some idealized vision of early to mid 19th century economic relations.

The petit bourg is also more exploitative to their workers that big porkies, they are in a fierce competition against the big porky and losing big time, thus their only solution is to exploit more their workers and trying to justify it because they're a small business, fuck them uyghas, shouldn't have gone into debt and gotten into the industrial line, all hail Walmart.
