Könnte man auch umstellen, so:

Oder umformulieren:
Um Stockungen und Krisen zu verhindern, muss die kommunistische Gesellschaft für Projekte, die lange andauern bevor sie einen Nutzen bringen (Beispiel Bau von Bahnstrecken), im voraus abschätzen und planen, wie viel Arbeit und anderen Ressourcen dafür abgezwackt werden muss.

>Princess of Wales: Kate image withdrawn by three news agencies amid 'manipulation' concerns


>Three photo agencies have retracted a picture of the Princess of Wales over concerns it has been "manipulated".


>The image, taken by Prince William and issued by Kensington Palace for Mother's Day, showed Catherine with their three children.


>But Associated Press was the first to pull the image as it "did not meet" the agency's photo standards. The agency noted an "inconsistency in the alignment of Princess Charlotte's left hand".


>Kensington Palace declined to comment.


>The photo shows the princess sitting down, surrounded by Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Prince George, the latter wrapping his arms around her.


>It was the first official photo of the Princess of Wales since her abdominal surgery two months ago. Since then she has stayed out of the public eye.

Not trying to be an enlightened centrist here, but it has always seemed odd to me how people on the right and left fetishize the concept of a militia taking down a conventional army, when reality has shown the opposite result every time, I come from a shitty third world nation that is barely held together most of the time, and my country has experienced numerous rebellions by Islamists, ethnic nationalists, and communists, and every time they have failed. This is because a "well-armed and well-funded militia" is no match for a well-armed, better-trained army with superior logistics and structure. Of course, in the event of a total collapse, a militia could potentially become the only proper authority for a region or if faced with an entirely incompetent and corrupt army. However, in most cases, a real army always prevails over militias. I don't know how people fell for this meme really, Eve Marx bought into this up and advocated for workers' militias, which ultimately proved to be a massive waste of time and loss of life for everyone involved, the Spanish Republicans insisted on using them in the Spanish civil war and they were a massive hinderance that lost way too many battles, and thoughts of forming an actual army was "Stalinism" and a betrayal of the revolution.

Most importantly, remember in 1979 when Saddam send his diplomats to congratulate the new Iranian government, being one of the first states to do so? How did the Ayatollah respond? Why by calling Saddam an infidel and inciting a revolution in his Shia majority country.
Imagine if it was the other way around, we wouldn't hear the end of it.
What my fellow "materialists" fail to grasp beyond these silly reductive narratives, is that Ba'athists were third world national bourgeoisie. They couldn't give less of a fuck about what either the US or Soviets wanted. They were looking out for their own interests, and they acted rationally against an irrational threat. If Ba'athists were stooges, Kissinger wouldn't be on the record calling for their overthrow few years prior to the war, arming Iran with one of the biggest and most modern western arsenals in process.
>Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini called on Iraqis to overthrow the Ba'ath government, which was received with considerable anger in Baghdad. On 17 July 1979, despite Khomeini's call, Saddam gave a speech praising the Iranian Revolution and called for an Iraqi-Iranian friendship based on non-interference in each other's internal affairs. When Khomeini rejected Saddam's overture by calling for Islamic revolution in Iraq, Saddam was alarmed.

If neoclassical economics were completely true, how would one go about constructing a planned economy such that:
1. there are no significant shortages or surpluses of goods
2. goods and services are distributed more or less according to utility
3. investment in new industries and firms is done at least as efficiently as in stock markets

I've read Cockshott and been really intrigued by his model, but it seems to use the labor theory of value as a load-bearing assumption. I don't want to argue against this theory, but I do want to ask a question concerning the counterfactual world where the mainstream models of economics are more or less correct. What would a planned economy need to be able to do in order to meet these requirements in this world? What would be the most effective way to direct production? Pic unrelated.

The short answer is data. That was Cybersyn's goal. Equipping every major factory with a computer that transmitted inputs and outputs of that day back to a central mainframe.
Socialist calculation has to utilize surplus value differently than capitalist calculation and to do so the first task is the replicate what is essentially an obfuscated function in the capitalist mode of production.

this is nonsensical to neoclassicals since they assume a general equilibrium at all times. their analysis starts with assuming supply = demand
>>1827798
>Good thing planned economies have nothing to do with communism
explain how a communist economy is supposed to work if not through coordination in kind (which is what planning is). the only other option is coordination by value. is there some third category that is neither use-value nor value?

no he doesn't. he asserts that value is transhistorical however (which we can, axiomatically)

this was more due to its cost rather than any corruption. Glushkov also wasn't a good political economist, if Elena Veduta is to be believed

it's not free though, since if you add say 10% safety margins at every level and you don't need them, then ten levels up you're producing 160% more than you need to. this gets attenuated by the amount held in reserve in storehouses, so perhaps it's enough to say "keep one month's supply extra just in case" or something like that

As for why the Soviet Union supported Israel, the actual reason was because Stalin and Lenin had the tendency to be very compromising towards identity based oppression that are secondary, with nationality being a main example in the Soviet Union. Jews have been oppressed so sympathy was justified but the erection of a settler-colonial ethnostate is by no means an acceptable solution for leftists. The additional problem however is that orthodox Marxism believes colonialism not to be inherently bad and also as possibly progressive, while Marxists of today know better from numerous intellectuals that wrote and published about colonialism in the second half of the 20th century.

A careful reading reveals that the other anon (not me) wasn't denying that early Israel was genocidal, but was merely saying that it wasn't quite as genocidal as contemporary Israel. Yes it was always a genocidal settler-colonial project but the fanatical devotion to this project has increased over time, as evidenced by the increase in the scale of killing. They went from simply pigeonholding Palestinians in Gaza, to depriving Gaza of water/electricity, to bombing Gaza, to invading Gaza, to blockading food from entering gaza, to bombing food aid drops, universities, and hospitals.

You are making a consequentialist argument, which is fine, I was referring to attitude though. I would explain every fluctuation in outcome based on Israel‘s capacity to follow its goal, which may be restrained in one form or the other depending on context.

Why are Communism and Marxism as "ideologies" borderline synonymous? Why is it that Marx's economic analysis of 1800s capitalism is treated as an essential building block for how we overthrow capitalism in the 21st century, as though to dispense with his analysis is to dispense with the end-goal of communism as such?
I feel like I often see a trend of reasoning that runs, simplified, that only Marx's analysis renders the collapse of capitalism from internal contradictions and the arrival of communism historically inevitable. But that seems like pretty weak reasoning: If he's wrong and it's not historically inevitable, why give up on it!? Why not try to work towards it instead of waiting for history to do all the work?
Maybe it's just because I've been a frustrated social engineer all my life, but it doesn't seem in any way intuitive to me that one should abandon the notion of a classless, stateless, and moneyless society just because one also accepts Keynes' view that fiscal policy can mitigate capialist downturns, or rejects the tendency of the rate of profit to fall, or indeed, even if one accepts neoliberal doctorines, any more than one should abandon the notion of flying on the grounds that the theory of gravity says earth will try to pull you down again. Theory only tells you how the world works, it's then on you to deploy it to make the world work the way you want it to. Why is there no major branch of leftist ideology which operates around this seemingly obvious principle?

You might say it's because Marx's analysis is so obvious that everyone who reads it agrees - and maybe that's true - but most self-identified communists don't actually read him beyond the manifesto, so that cannot be the explanation.
You might say "oh you mean Ancoms?" but a lot of Ancoms seem to run with Marx's analysis of capitalism - just not with Marxism-Leninism as an overall ideology.

I'm not saying Marx is wrong, don't waste time arguing he's not wrong. His rightness and wrongness -indeed the rightnes and wrongness of any theory - is irrelevant to this thread.
This thread is about the relative absence of a certain kind of person and analysis. If you want the dilemma clearly: "Why does the marketplace of ideology not have any non-Marxist communists in stock?" If you want the dilemma in pretentious economic terms: Why is "Normative" Marxism ("what we should do") so dependent oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

51% of young zoomer men 18-29 are single, have zero prospects for home or car ownership, have zero prospects for a stable career, zero prospects for retiring, zero prospects for anything besides abject poverty, and are becoming increasingly violent and politically radicalized towards the right.

Given historical precedent, it appears we're very close to a violent right-wing revolution led by this demographic. What is to be done? How can we turn this around in the left's favor and prevent this upcoming tragedy?

This is not meant to be an incel thread, but rather this is discussing the material conditions of young men in the west who have intentionally been funneled into extremist far-right movements by capital and think-tanks

I swear to god I can only see three types of people unironically holding this stance:
1 rich kids whose parents shit money, who have legitly no contact with the broader masses
2 NEETs who literraly never go ouside or talk to people
3 non-westeners who have gobbled up porky propaganda
Either way, in cases those are people who think the average westener still lives in the golden age of social democracy and still has the spending power to afford all the consumer shit as in the 90's.
The former came under attack almost half a century ago by the likes of Thatcher and Regan, which completely broke anything that could resembke a class collaboration in the west, immiserating millions of people. As for the latter, most of that lifestyle was fueled by debt, and in practice it has completely and utterly vanished in the last 15 years.
There is a growing desperate need of change in the west: it's painfully obvious to the point ypu don't even need to go outside to notice it. Why do you think we're seeing a resurgence of fascists and the like right now? Because the living standards are declining and liberalism is utterly powerless.

Biden claims ‘cannibals’ ate his uncle
<Second Lieutenant Ambrose Finnegan of the US Army Air Forces was declared missing in May 1944, after his light bomber crashed in the sea.

>“He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals at the time,” Biden told reporters on the campaign trail outside Air Force One in Scranton, Pennsylvania. “They never recovered his body, but the government went back when I went down there and they checked and found some parts of the plane.”


<Several hours later, at a meeting with United Steelworkers union members in Pittsburgh, Biden told the same story.


>“He got shot down in New Guinea and they never found the body because there used to be – there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea,” the 81-year-old Democrat said.


<According to the Pentagon’s agency for prisoners of war and missing in action (POW-MIA), Finnegan was never shot down, however. Nor was it on a reconnaissance mission, as Biden claimed.


<The A-20 Havoc light bomber was on a “courier run” from the Los Negros Island when its engines failed at low altitude, per the official account of the incident. The plane dropped into the sea off the north coast of New Guinea and two out of three crew members never made it out of the sinking wreck, which was never found. The one man who survived was rescued by a passing boat.

US Army Pacific said that the “landmark” deployment took place as part of the joint Salaknib 24 exercises with Filipino troops and showcased “the extensive reach and logistical precision” of the American military. Typhoon systems, which were first introduced in 2023, can fire both the Standard Missile 6 (SM-6) and Tomahawk missiles, with the latter having a range of up to 2,500km.

Leaked Cables Show White House Opposes Palestinian Statehood
Ahead of the United Nations Security Council action to consider the Palestinian Authority’s application to become a full member of the international body, the United States is lobbying nations to reject such membership, hoping to avoid an overt “veto” by Washington. The lobbying effort, revealed in copies of unclassified State Department cables obtained by The Intercept, is at odds with the Biden administration’s pledge to fully support a two-state solution.

The CPUSA and the "Lesser Evil" by Marxist-Leninist Today Editors
Recently the CPUSA published a document Forward Together (now posted at cpusa.org) which was approved by the CPUSA National Committee on January 27 to frame the discussion leading up to the Party’s June 2024 convention in Chicago. The national convention of a Communist Party is important. A convention is the leading body of the Party, and its decisions govern the political direction of the Party in the four years ahead. In recent decades the CPUSA, like many Communist parties, has passed through challenging times. It is striving to recover from the years when a right opportunist leadership wreaked havoc on the Party, threw it into crisis and weakened its influence in the people’s movements. Those movements would be stronger today if there had been a well-functioning, healthy Communist Party providing class struggle perspective and strategic direction. While there are signs that a rectification is in progress, certain ideas from the crisis period still seem to have a stubborn hold. Hence the comments below.

Erdoğan seeks salvation in war
It is clear that the fascist Erdoğan regime is deepening Turkey's deadlock. Since 2015, the AKP has been in a state of continuous attack against the Kurdish people. They wanted to enter the second century of the Republic with the victory of the "One Nation, One State" genocide plan without the Kurds. From this point of view, Turkey as a whole was taken as a field of operation. Erdoğan lost the election on 31 March. On the night of the election, he said that he would evaluate the messages given by the people in the election. But in the same speech he also emphasised that he would "deal a fatal blow to the Kurds". How will a mentality and an administration that aims for death and annihilation against the Kurds draw conclusions from the elections? Obviously, there are no conclusions for them to draw. The mindset is the same. This means that war and attacks will continue, billions of dollars and the lives of thousands of people will be wasted. In this case, there is no possibility for the economy and the legal system to recover.

Holy shit, the """rationale""" the US is using gives me the same nauseous when someone lies to my face.
>“It remains the U.S. view that the most expeditious path toward a political horizon for the Palestinian people is in the context of a normalization agreement between Israel and its neighbors,” the cable reads. “We believe this approach can tangibly advance Palestinian goals in a meaningful and enduring way.”
How is literally doing the single one thing for their alleged "support" of a "two-state solution" be somehow an advancement of Palestinian goals?

>“Premature actions at the UNSC, even with the best intentions, will achieve neither statehood nor self-determination for the Palestinian people. Such initiatives will instead endanger normalization efforts and drive the parties further apart, heighten the risk of violence on the ground that could claim innocent lives on both sides, and risk support for the new, reform government announced by President Abbas,” the cable says.

Fuck this shit. Why can't they be honest for once and say they want a de facto Zionist annexation instead of trying to manipulate and fear monger?!

ITT discuss one state solution, two state solution, zero state solution, etc. IMO gaddafi was on the right track with the plan for a federal Isratine, the idea for which actually predates the creation of Israel. Here's a sketch of how it might come to pass:
1) Hamas joins PLO
2) International sanctions on Israel
3) Capital flight from Israel, intensified tension between religious/secular Zionists, the settler project begins to crumble and implode
4) Israel forced to negotiate with PLO to end the occupation
5) Settlement building is halted, new elections are held, start of deradicalization campaign targeting fanatic settlers
6) Truth and reconciliation for war crimes
7) The federal state is phased in, refugees return in waves across a sustainable timespan
8) ???
9) Peace in the Middle East :)

All of them? Sabashit is hilariously enough the least blatant about it despite the fact that Cliffs of Gallipoli literally never mentions the Ottoman dead even once. The only time the casualty numbers are mentioned is when they are pushing the old "bwahahaha, 200,000 Ottomans died and only 50,000 brave Entente soldiers" bragging (which is basically ignoring that the 50,000 number is only the ANZAC casualties and the actual Allied dead including the Brits and the French greatly exceeded the Ottoman casualties). Meanwhile listen to any song about European vs. European battles and it's also "brave soldiers on both sides".

WHAT IS MULTIPOLARISM
Multipolarism, in its most basic form, posits a world where multiple powers (countries or entities) exist in a state of relative equilibrium, challenging the unipolar hegemony led mainly by the United States post-Cold War. The emergence of China, the reassertion of Russia, the rise of regional powers like India, Brazil, and South Africa, among others, suggest a move towards this multipolar world.


BUT is it rly just Capitalism 2: Electric Boogaloo - Neo-Dengism Edition? To what extent is multipolarism just capitalist nationalism for people not in green on this map? If the whole thrust of socialism is now just "America bad" what becomes of the classical socialist goals of workers control of the means of production, and abolishing class society?

I'm so tired of "third-worldist" "anti-imperialist" liberals who never read Lenin constantly bringing him up to back up their stupid ideas. Lenin's support for natlib stemmed from a recognition of its function during a bourgeois revolution.

Broader German culture:
>In German folklore, one finds an inordinate number of texts concerned with anality. Scheiße (shit), Dreck (dirt), Mist (manure), Arsch (ass), and other locutions are commonplace. Folksongs, folktales, proverbs, folk speech—all attest to the Germans' longstanding special interest in this area of human activity. I am not claiming that other peoples of the world do not express a healthy concern for this area, but rather that the Germans appear to be preoccupied with such themes. It is thus not so much a matter of difference as it is of degree.

James Joyce:
>At every fuck I gave you your shameless tongue come bursting out through your lips and if I gave you a bigger stronger fuck than usual fat dirty farts came spluttering out of your backside. You had an arse full of farts that night, darling, and I fucked them out of you, big fat fellows, long windy ones, quick little merry cracks and a lot of tiny little naughty farties ending in a long gush from your hole. It is wonderful to fuck a farting woman when every fuck drives one out of her. I think I would know Nora’s fart anywhere. I think I could pick hers out in a roomful of farting women. It is a rather girlish noise not like the wet windy fart which I imagine fat wives have. It is sudden and dry and dirty like what a bold girl would let off in fun in a school dormitory at night. I hope Nora will let off no end of her farts in my face so that I may know their smell also.

so i finished watching the entire series and something made me feel uneasy. starting with episode 6 and going into episode 7 the show takes a very political turn. a turn against capitalism and an actual, intended or not, positive portray of communism. almost directly actually. at least, it takes the blame completely away from communism, portray some of the communist in the show as actually good people fighting against the evils of capitalism. at least those to be heavily hinted at as being communist. which made me very delighted but then it dawned to me, this is a amazon prime production based off a video game from bethesda who is now owned by microsoft. three massive, very capitalist, corporations that have shown time again to be very for profit.

but even if we remove the debate whether or not communist being portrayed as good did happen in the show, the show itself was extremely critical of capitalism and that makes me wonder why these billion dollar corporations that are the epitome of why capitalism is bad, be telling its viewers, the very nature of amazon, bethesda, and microsft, everything they stand for, the people who made the show and games, are bad? why would they want their consumers to hate the very thing that allows these elites, these companies, to exist in the first place?

is it some sort of chess move i don't understand? have we reached a state where capitalism could very well nuke the planet and people won't care so these companies don't care if criticism about them is made? or more wishful thinking, they think this will spare them from the revolution? i don't understand their move here. i don't expect capitalist companies to allow people to hate them.

Surprisingly good. Liked how it didn't feel like a buzzfeed/Guardian Article. Felt it accurately depicted the racism in Vigo's character and also showed how most normal working people lose their prejudices.

Pretty cool. Thought the effects looked a bit funky at the beginning but knowing Scorsese that was probably intentional, to give off the implication that the main character was a looney. I'm a bruv so prefer Casino and Goodfellas but thats just personal taste.

Was supposed to just watch it for fx animation inspiration but its an actually amazing 2D cartoon feature. It's very hard for me to not get emotionally invested in animated films, but it is a gnarly film from start to end. Everyone needs a bit of balance between baby movies and grown up films.

I wonder if a reason Fight Club, as a film, is so notable is because it describes and demonstrates a fantasy, even if ultimately it is later critical of it. A large portion of the middle of the film is dedicated to glorifying the club as escapism from the boredom and disempowerment (characterised as femininity) of the alien urban capitalist society. This is not just a simple sex scene to spike adrenaline or watching some ripped jerkoff spray a machine gun, this puts you in the middle of a self-gratifying society. A social orgy of sorts, an exciting community that you are placed in the middle of. At least in mainstream film (and that's most of what I've seen), this is extremely rare.

It's very distinct from an action film, and in a very different way from how, say, Jarhead (and Full Metal Jacket) are in their similar personal stories. We don't glimpse into a hell, in this case we glimpse into a fantasy, in a very personal way through the close-ups and fourth-wall narration.
It reminds me of a video game with the immersive violent fantasy, maybe the closest film I know of to one. Would be interested to hear of any other film that manages to parallel this fantasy fulfillment.

Not really, the UNSC never recovers and a lot of insurrectionists survived the war and made rival governments, as per Halo 5's item descriptions. But that was something known since Fall of Reach, a lot of rebels were already in deep hiding from the UNSC so they came out of the war pretty good, especially since their piracy of Covenant vessels has given them an edge on reverse-engineered Covenant tech.

I've been waiting to play Halo 2, 3 and Reach since I was literally a teenager and at the ripe old age of 28 I finally got my hands on MCC and finished everything but ODST.

I love this franchise so much it's crazy. I feel sad that I missed out on it in its heyday due to being poor as shit and it's also sad to see how the franchise is being run into the ground by people who don't care but man I fucking LOVE this shit. It has injected more happiness into my miserable ass life than anything I have done in a long ass time.

I'm currently on my second playthrough of Halo 2 on Heroic. Is multiplayer worth a shot? I've heard there are a lot of hackers and ridiculously skilled players who have been playing since the XBox live days but this shit is no bullshit like crack to me. I just love all the characters and guns and lore and etc. it's all just gr8 shit

I think the problem is that there are genres and consoles and people usually segregate themselves to them so it is hard to say of which two games came out at the same time for PC and Nintendo and Sony and in different genres are more influential or legendary. Obviously first gen Xbox owners would say Halo. But a PC gamer might be like that's knockoff Tribes.

I mean it IS a little interesting because it exists because modern US culture FORBIDS sympathetic allegiances to your homeland while at the same time FORCING your race and ethnic background to be a central part of your identity. So you end up with this schizo shit where you are like taking cultural ownership of this eclectic collection of "Asian" foods but only special ones that have already been accepted within US culture (milk tea, hot pot, anything Japanese), but are also ashamed of the "weird" things, and are also regarding people back home as infantile and backward or unsophisticated despite yourself. The super rapid intensification of racial hostility from the "West" (white people) towards China has made these things sharp. During the time this article was written, a lot of AsAm communities were experiencing a purge of sympathetic views towards China (no matter which nationality you were) with these "boba libs" acting as gatekeepers/whips keeping everyone in line.

I think reading up about these guys should be mandatory because they are a perfect illustration of what not to do. They were without a doubt perhaps the most incompetent and embarrassing armed group that has ever existed. Everyone, White Working class union members, Black Panthers and feminists all made fun of them and thought they were embarrassing retards
All their members hailed from very privileged backgrounds and were university students, Not surprisingly, when they were apprehended, only a handful faced any consequences or retribution from the government. Their grand "revolution" against the United States turned out to be a decade-long spree of meaningless bombings and vandalism. Law enforcement dubbed them the "toilet bombers" due to their penchant for targeting government building bathrooms. The pinnacle of their incompetence was when they accidentally blew up one of their own safe houses. Some of their members managed to evade capture for years(cause no one was actually looking for them), only to be astounded by the lenient punishment they received upon surrendering. cause law enforcement simply didn't deem them worth prosecuting. the majority of them are still alive and continue to enjoy their wealth to this day and are college professors and social activists.

Another interesting point is that the more educated and "Europeanized" Algerians were the biggest drivers of independence, while the more rural ones were a bit ambivalent and again many had served in the French Military for two three generations at that point, it was something they saw as duty, . They were doing a good job of pacifying inside of Algeria itself, but the issue is that every country around Algeria had just become independent, and all of them hated the French so much that they were letting the FLN set up for cross-border raids, De Gaulle simply couldn't be bothered to keep troops there until the end of time to prevent the inevitable from happening.
