its kind of sucky to be a leftist who prefers social media with
a feeling of anonymity. it's understandable too why most leftists aren't too fond of places with (mostly) full anonymity between users since it tends to lead to more bigotry, or reactionary ideology, because those types feel more free to post their thoughts with impunity in these kinds of places.

why is almost every single imageboard far right? because there is so low consequences to say things like that there. a lot of imageboards purely just exist for nazis and chinlets to be able to circlejerk day in and day out.

so there are very few leftwing imageboards, only two, and the other one of them, (perhaps controversial here) the lefty is a misnomer. so one lefty chanboard.

i think it's sometimes a defense against trolls and such to have lots of checks to prevent rightoids from being able to spread their reactionism and such. but i still think there should be more leftist communities like this

i probably care way too much about this

Did you just miss the last ~9 years? Did you not see how places like ED stopped with the "satire" and became straight-up Nazis like Weev?
>Seems like you don't believe there's a real distinction?
Yes, because all the "satire" ever did was mainstream and legitimize racism and anti-LGBT sentiment. and prime people for Neo-Nazi recruitment.


actually its because of /pol/ board. back then (before durrumph drama) no imageboard had /pol/ board

in general imageboards went to shit including this one
they use shit engines and everyone is from reddit or facebook


the last cool imageboard i've seen was bunkerchan>>1353892


I'm just waiting for Tumblr to get ActivityPub (protocol connecting it with Mastodon etc.), thus opening up a huge demographic of progressives to federated, FOSS, pseudonymous social media (with a significant % of communist women).
anonymous social media is structurally catered to the anti-social, like NEET, incels, people with psychological issues and is thereby clearly finding its real base the lumpen/p. bourg, reflecting in its history of morphing between minoritarian ideology a to x (anarchism, leftcommunism, third positionism, tankism, dengism), anything that either hasn't worked or doesn't center around the revolutionary proletariat - that's what succeed in this environment.

The proletariat uses facebook, has friends, a sexual/romantic history and can read facial expressions - the antithesis of the channer.

I'm surprised none of you have hopped on this bandwagon.


>Communist? No It preaches non-violence, no?
What? Communism isn't when you go monkey mode and kill without a plan.
Frisk is a human stuck in the barrier, which requires a monster absorb seven human souls to break. A human cannot absorb human souls, and Asgore only had 6 souls, Frisk, and assumed dead, Asriel's human sibling, who Asriel absorbed the soul of before seeking medical attention for, before getting fatally wounded by the villagers and dying, spreading dust onto the flower that would be imbued with determination by Gaster to become Flowey.
You have to do a pacifist route to make Flowey remember they're Asriel, because if you kill, you reinforce Flowey's idealistic maxim of "In this world, it's killed or be killed." By refusing to kill or die, you force Flowey to reach an epiphany, unblock his memories of being Asriel, and use the souls to break the barrier.
It doesn't just blankly preach non-violence, it presents a situation where violence directly goes against your material interests, because you need to refute Flowey's idealism.
IRL, communism requires challenging the idealism that makes people think capitalism is still viable.

He said that he thinks Vietnam was fully justified in an interview he did with Grayzone. I think his sentiment about Ukraine is actually common in hush-hush conservative circles, in the sense that this war is basically peripheral to American interests (Russia does not threaten like China does), but he actually realizes that this could hurt America so he speaks out against it. He had mentioned that he does not want the world to dedollarize because it is a useful tool for American imperialism, which is exactly what sanctioning Russian goods will do. I'd bet he and every other smart conservative wants to skip this distraction and cut to the chase, China


Link to the interview?


The way he shut down Aaron Mate at one point was kind of funny. Aaron wanted to argue America doesn't really avoid killing civilians in war and MacGregor told him to have that argument with someone else. It was an amusing moment where a lefty and a rightoid clashed.


NTA but https://thegrayzone.com/2022/03/18/pentagon-doug-macgregor-russia-ukraine-war/

seems like he is whitewashing the US
>we didn't kill civilians in Vietnam


I'm not going to go looking for it, I think it was the second GZ interview he did, the first one done with both Blumenthal and Mate instead of just the former. Mate challenged him on Vietnam after he said something about it. Anyways this shouldn't be shocking to anyone.
yea, Mate always wants to Push Back and I like it

Ah but I did bring up pph
It's meta commentary, see?
As well as I am not in the habit of replying to shit I haven't read (that spoiler text was especially incoherent, is my real response)


Reposting here because some of you fuckers can't be bothered to do absolutely anything and expect things to be handed to them. You are the Karens of imageboards. Just watch this fucking Karen >>25404 expecting everything be given to them on a silver platter. With no hint of irony that this Karen retard never bothered to volunteer for moderation.

I've recently been going on pisscord (and tik tok) promoting leftypol. I've also promoted the capital reading group, linking to the thread.

I dislike all other forms of leftist social media, so I am doing what I can to bring in new people here.
I encourage everyone to do the same. It seems a lot of people here expect to be served, particularly served like customers by the mods. Leftypol isn't a company and mods aren't business owners. They are just other leftypol community members as anyone else. You don't need to ask permission to embark on a project for leftypol and by leftypol. The based new multitude editor didn't ask for permission to make a zine. That other comrade didn't ask for permission to make a capital reading group. The same goes with everything else. Everyone pitches in to make this community what it is. It is up to everyone to pitch in to make things happen.

If you want people to post here and want leftypol to continue, then new people need to be trickling in constantly. Go out there and promote leftypol now! Don't expect others to do it. You do it, you put in the work, you go out there and be a good representative of leftypol, you are as good as an ambassador to leftypol as anyone else. Go forth!


Not regarding the post you're quoting (that's just a run-of-the-mill attention whore) but I think your theory of Karenism is useful
Karenism is fundamentally the desire to be taken serious and to talk to the manager, as it were. You can't transplant that into the incorporeal realm of the interwebs however, hence they fail so unceremoniously.


Also you cannot talk to the manager in a flat hierarchy, an unintended and funny consequence of democratic management


This. Fucking this.

In order for this place to get more users, relying solely on the administration's efforts and hoping that search engine results will lead some new guys here is not enough, especially with all the noise contemporary internet has. Everyone here has to take up responsibility and spread the word of the board by whatever means they find necessary, be it whether posting screencaps, making OC, sharing memes or just plain word of mouth. And if someone finds that the mods are not doing enough of a good job, you can always apply to become a janitor and do their part. Nobody is here to stop you, nor there is no PR manager whose entire job revolves around shilling the board 24/7. The sooner everybody who complains about the board being "dead" understands it the better.

Is korean culture really as fucked up as manhwa makes it look? there hasn't been a single korean comic that I've read, regardless of genre, where korea isn't depicted as the worst shithole imaginable with seemingly the worst aspects of western and eastern cultures

Korean fighting Manhwa's are interesting in that I never seen series where material wealth is often such a big factor, yes characters often start out poor but the end goal is always to get money(not just to live comfortably but to be wealthy)
I can't imagine a Japanese series where the MC's "drip" is an important factor for the story


this clip makes me want to kill myself, who writes this shit


Propably the guys that wrote those gta 5 cartoons


Is it just me or do Bad Korean webtoons all look the same?… Like it's all the same artist.


Do foreigners in korean fighting manhwas have unique fighting powers ?

like in Japanese fighting manga series, foreign characters will also have special "fighting powers" based on stereotypes on their country or ethnicity

for e.g in Hajime-no-ippo(one of my favorite series) foreign fighters can't even be regular boxers, they always have some weirdly flashy fighting style of superpower, so all mexicans have some magical power letting them jab in a way no other race can, black people have faster reflexes, whites have stronger endurance and and an Indonesian guy fights literally like a monkey

>A high cultural syncretism pervades the findings, however. Hellenistic cultural and artistic influences can be found in many of the forms and human depictions (from amorini to rings with the depiction of Athena and her name inscribed in Greek), attributable to the existence of the Seleucid empire and Greco-Bactrian Kingdom in the same area until around 140 BCE, and the continued existence of the Indo-Greek Kingdom in the northwestern Indian sub-continent until the beginning of our era.

>The artifacts were also intermixed with items coming from much farther, such as a few Chinese artifacts (especially Chinese bronze mirrors) as well as a few Indian ones (decorated ivory plates). This seems to be a testimony to the richness of cultural influences in the area of Bactria at that time.

So, we have a grave with mixed artifacts in them. But if greek and roman shit means that greeks and romans were the rulers of the local area, then chinese or indian influence was just *there*. Also, check the pic description

The 4th century BCE is no longer "legendary times" for Greece and Rome (or other civilizations in North Africa and Asia for that matter). The Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Theogony were written down c. the 700s BCE as Greece emerged from a "dark age" following the Mycenaean collapse c. 1050 BCE. These poems all refer to legendary events supposed to have happened in the distant past. In the approximately 415 to 365 years between the time these poems were written down and the start of Alexander's conquests

>Ionia revolted against Persian rule (499-493 BCE) and Persia twice invaded Greece and lost 492-490 BCE; 480-479 BCE)

Doi fatos importantíssimos pra entender (ou ao menos tentar) essa sandice do Marcos do Val:

Um, Daniel Silveira protagonizou um bom-dia-PF hoje de manhã, e foi preso com uma bolada de dinheiro vivo. O dito-cujo foi explicitamente denunciado por Marcos do Val na matéria da Veja de hoje da tentativa de gravar Alexandre de Moraes.

Dois, marcos do Val está dizendo, com poucos detalhes, que denunciou essa tentativa de gravar Alexandre antes de relatá-la à Veja. O que deixa muito estranha sua participação direta na tentativa de incriminar Dino pelo putsch de 8 de janeiro.


>Revista Veja libera acesso à íntegra da entrevista que fez com Marcos do Val antes de estourar o caso. E na entrevista ele atribui papel ativo a Bolsonaro na proposta. “O ex-presidente disse tudo isso?”, indaga o repórter. Do Val: “Disse”


Importante notar que o foro privilegiado do Daniel Silveira acabou literalmente ontem, junto com seu mandato de deputado federal. Essa prisão de hoje deve ter partido de algum juiz normal, e não do STF.

It's a fake memetic version of the government approved national Sangha. Instead of a community of buddhists, it's a gusano fundamentalist org demanding Vietnam to turn into a buddhist theocracy with western characteristics.
From choiced quotes from this tard:
>Communism is utopianism, a collection of all negative western philosophy from plato to marx. A non humanist ideology that only creates slavery. Creates people enslaved by the dreams of others, under the command of others. These others created it, so it forces people to lose all personal creativity and connection to the world, its creatures and the universe. Communism only rules other without acknowledging personal accomplishments. Marx's crtiques of western 20th century capitalism was humanist and egalitarian. But since Lenin used Marx's theory in the bolshevik of russia, then Stalin, Mao and HCM, communism has become hooliganism, politics ruled by thugs.

Kinda late but yesterday is the 60th anniversary of Operation Coldstore. Never ever trust a social democrat. They will flatter you, personally invite you to join their party, introduce you to others as Singapore's first Prime Minister. But when push comes to shove, they will betray you, call you a chinese chauvinist and a communist. 兔死狗烹



From 2008-2012ish, there were a number of hacking groups such as anonymous, lulzsec/antisec, etc. that overlapped with arguably left wing/anarchist and other social movements of the time, such as the movement of the squares, the arab spring, and occupy wall street.

However this all faded out around 2012 and even more by 2016 they basically died out completely.

why did they fail? Is there anything to be learned from these experiences?

Why has CPUSA been so mythologized in the past two years when they were a massive failure and sucked even in their “good days?”

American communists tried to follow the Bolshevik strategy and failed. They didn’t originally give a shit about Black people either, they only adopted the Black Belt thesis because Stalin told them to. They were way too close to the Comintern and that bit them in the ass later on. Foster was power-hungry and mad because his steel strike failed while Browder was a clout demon. The whole thing was a mess from the start. I’m kind of relieved the feds took them down.

That's what I figured. If you were engaging in strike after strike and nothing brought down capitalism, then saw a successful socialist revolution finally take place in Russia, of course you'd want to copy their strategy.


The DSA not only, despite all the claims democratic organization, frequently has its national leadership reject the demands of the organizational base, but also cannot even hold its elected officials to account. If the CPUSA has lots of boomer African Americans and older people, that's already the better indicator of potential than all those new leftist, demsoc, or campus centric organizations, which serve as college, suburban whites' venue for promotion of middle class pathologie sand resentments.


The CPUSA was a good party in the past, the work they did in Alabama with black workers is particularly admirable.

Sorry if incelposting but man does this fuckin deepfake twitch streamer drama bullshit get on my nerves… These uber-privileged little asswipes make a shitton of money off of creating in people the delusion of a parassocial relationship, of pretending to be their friends and then whine when people have sexual fantasies about them? Unless you're saying it's sexist to have sexual fantasies with women you actually know irl then they have nobody to blame but themselves. The only reason they make a dime off of it is because they convince people that a real relationship exists and that's why people fap to them but nobody will ever say that, honestly the whole internet should be deleted and trying to use it should become a capital offense


>Unless you're saying it's sexist to have sexual fantasies with women you actually know irl

They probably would say that TBH. But agree with you otherwise.


You don't seem to know this, but your fantasies =/= computer generated media circulated through the internet

Union Budget 2023: Trend of Centre’s Low Spending on Education Worsens Under Modi
The Indian government's spending on education continues to slide under Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule. Union Budget figures show that in the years since Narendra Modi took over as Prime Minister in 2014, the Central government’s expenditure on education ― which was already low ― has declined sharply.

>Austria’s far-right Freedom Party regains national momentum


(+Video) Advances the offensive of workers for decent wages
“We are witnessing the fourth week of mobilization of workers who come forward in a sustained offensive to the national level by a living wage, according to what is mandated by article 91 of the Constitution”, was reported on Monday, Carlos Ojeda Falcon, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV). The party of the Red Rooster explained that the agenda of protest has been characterized by the recovery of the income of the working class, the right to collective bargaining, the social benefits and savings fund. “The workers get discounted month-to-month amounts to social security, as stipulated by law and you do not know, nor does it explain what happens to these funds,” said Ojeda Falcon. The communist leader described the situation of the teachers and in general and the officials of the Public Administration as “a general state of helplessness”.

Here it is, I was looking for you



They’re not profitable
They’re not good no none of them are fun at all especially not in comparison to single player coop games
And they’re also outdated mechanically and literally considering how old the genre is

Outside of how fucking retarded companies like nexon, blizzard, Amazon, and BioWare are there’s legitimate reasons for why this genre seriously should’ve went the way of club penguin at this point and it’s that MMOs have stayed functionally the same since EverQuest 2 was a thing. I mean the closest thing you have to a “modern” level example of these games is new world because it has collisions and basic as shit combat mechanics you’d see in action games from over a decade ago, rather than the lazily shoehorned tab target spam keys to win nonsense you’d have fun with on your dads shitty probably broken janky as shit pc you’d use in your kid years and those aspects of that game are still badly implemented and complained about to this day

There’s no fucking hope for these games even the technically popular MMOs like WoW and ff14 struggle to maintain server counts that aren’t community servers(or the fact that some of their servers are shutting down completely) and any attempt at a revolutionary change that’ll bring what’s seen everywhere else in gaming to the mmo seen in Asian countries is laughably bad or insidiously implemented with layers and layers of microtransactions like BDO. I don’t get why there’s still whales for these trash games when there’s so much else to play you could be having fun with that don’t require an entire communities worth of people to pair up with(ignoring how most people that played these games have already moved on to other aspects of their lives)

I don’t understand this at all at how long they’ve lives

obviously they are profitable otherwise they wouldn't keep making them


>this time we'll successfully beat WoW at its own game!


they don't have to beat wow though, just get a few thousand paypigs.


Only reason to play MMOs is raiding. It feels good to have a place in a team and contribute to its success. The rest of the average MMO is a tumor eating up all the resources that could be put towards making more and better raid bosses.


Dragon flight rn is pretty fun even without raids

>I'd think its a little gauche to boycott the game because of Rowling, when its obvious that the staff of those working for the developer/publisher are likely to be more directly effected and some of whom are likely living paycheck to paycheck
The gamedevs will get paid for their work before it's released, and they definitely won't be seeing a droplet of the profit made from the sales itself. Meanwhile, Rowling gets royalties on the sales profit.


>its not like goblins were inherently antisemitic or Rowling created the overall trope which has similarities in folklore in many parts of the world
"Ukraine isn't full of nazis because they're just following the tropes of Russians with their Protocols of the Elder Zion pamphlet" bruh
>Know who is though? All the various workers involved in the game's development.
A lead game dev supported Gamergate, an early alt-right nazi movie that screeched about "(((cultural Marxists))) are destroying western civilization by making radical critiques of our consumer products". I think it's fair to say that the devs are adjacent to antisemetic conspiracy nazi ideology https://www.indiewire.com/2021/02/harry-potter-game-designer-gamergate-youtube-channel-1234619220/
>they're "bad" , while ignoring the many other people involved in its creation who aren't "bad" and far more vulnerable to such harm, doesn't seem logical.
"Support workers by buying nazi propaganda about Jews, you fucking class traitor…wtf you can't just call me "Bad", what does that even mean??? Actually there is no such thing as bad things" Using scare quotes is a good sign that you're a reactionary, TERFs do that cognitive dissonance praxis all the time to reduce their mental stress.


Launch trailer dropped.

>I have a rare ability to see whispers of ancient magic

I fucking hate chosen ones, such a fucking lazy way of making player feel "important" while undermining their actual agency.


uh isn't being against hackneye'd tropes and deconstruction bad actually???? Cliches are good now!!


i never really bought that the goblins are anti semitic just because their noses are big and pointy and they run the bank.

The Anpo protests were a turning point in the JCP's ongoing attempts to revive its political fortunes after the disastrous turn toward violent revolution in the early 1950s.[17] Although the Maoists had been purged from the party following the earlier disaster, the JCP was still riven by the age-old rivalry between the Rōnō Ha (Worker-Farmer Faction) and the Kōza Ha (Lecture Faction), which dated back to the prewar era.[17] Among other disagreements, the two factions disagreed over which stage of Marxist development Japan was currently in; the Rōnō Ha believed that Japan had already achieved full capitalism, which meant that an immediate socialist revolution was possible, whereas the Kōza Ha argued that Japan's transition to capitalism was not yet complete and that therefore what was needed was a "two-stage" revolution—first a "democratic revolution" that would overthrow American imperialism and establish true democracy, and then a "socialist revolution" that would establish communism.[20] Although the "mainstream" of the JCP, led by Kenji Miyamoto, favored the Kōza Ha interpretation, as late as the 7th Party Congress in 1958 the "anti-mainstream" Rōnō Ha faction, led by Shōjirō Kasuga, still controlled around 40 percent of the delegates.[17]

The Anpo protests greatly strengthened the hand of the Kōza Ha faction.[23] During the protest, the JCP, still scarred by the backlash to its violent line in the 1950s, consistently advocated peaceful, orderly, and restrained protests.[23] This stance was highly unpopular with the radical student activists of the Zengakuren student federation, who broke decisively with the JCP as a result and began to build a New Left student movement.[24] However, the movement proved unpopular with the broader public, and the JCP was able to use its image as a "peaceful" and "positive" force during the protests as a recruitment tool. Membership in the party soared during the course of the protests, doubling from 40,000 to 80,000, and most of the new recruits wound up supporting the Kōza Ha line.[23]

Over the remainder of the 1960s, the Kōza Ha was able to purge many members from the Rōnō Ha faction, and others, dissatisfied with JCP policies, quit the party of their own accord.[25] Miyamoto was able to cement his control over the party and reigned as party chairman all the way until 1982. Meanwhile, the party's membership continued to grow rapidly, and the party began to make steady gains at the ballot box, winning Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

CPUSA member at 46:30. I don't wanna say it's becoming a weeb party for China but the China weebs don't seem useless like weebs for Japan are and they actually do stuff.

I'm not interfering in Japanese affairs, but I figured I'd be a JCP member if I was Japanese. The fact is, they're opposed to militarism and Japan spending more on the military and hosting U.S. bases which is the most important thing than their opinion of China.

Is it inevitable? A lot of "experts" are predicting that it will happen before 2030. Probably over Taiwan. China just has to build its military to be able to take a tiny island off it's coast, while the US would have to project power thousands of miles from it's shores, without the use of aircraft carriers which would get easily destroyed by midrange ground to ship missiles.

China's population will also peak around this time, meaning it will be at the height of its economic power. So IMO China would have to make a move on Taiwan before 2030 at the latest or they won't at all.

China can probably already defeat Taiwan and the US, just using current military strength, its likely they can actually win already. The only question is would they be willing to disrupt the world economy by doing so. China wants increasing prosperity, but they also want Taiwan back.

This is so retarded and nonsensical. China's power isn't tied to its population. That's just the latest retarded propaganda from the west because they're coping with China's declining number. Since all other "China is about to collapse and shrink b-b-because Honk Honk/coof/housing/etc." memes failed.

China isn't on a time limit. They never were. That's Gordon Chang's school of delusion.
America is since American empire is crumbling. Checked the Dedollarization lately? America wants to provoke a war in order to go out with a shit instead of a fart.


>which annoys the piss out of me because you're giving up and tacitly endorsing a defeatism that throws chinese people and chinese-americans to the wolves
i'm Chinese American and i don't think most of us will be thrown to the wolves. like them or hate them, most libs will not be willing to straight up genocide a group of people we're at war at. it will become another culture war talking point of "should we gas teh chinks or not" which even then will be problematic for the MAGA populist right, since does Falun Gong and the Epoch Times get a pass in this case? like is there a point where a Chinese person can cuck themselves out so they survive? and once some MAGAfag torches a Vietnamese pho restaurant for being "Chinese" there will be anti-communist Viet Americans complaining like hell, the right would be shooting itself in the foot pursuing a straight up anti-Chinese domestic policy.


>most libs will not be willing to straight up genocide a group of people we're at war at

I don't know if America would mass kill all Chinese-Americans, but something similar to internment again? Sure.

Very real chance of things going off tomorrow as the IDF raided Jenin this morning and killed 10 people and injured double that after firing an anti-tank missile into a building. PA has rescinded security cooperation (https://twitter.com/MairavZ/status/1618649365534621696), which has been in place since Oslo in the 1990s. Tomorrow is also a friday which means rallies after mosque prayers, probably including a strike (they had one today but it appears there was little catch-on due to the fact the raid was this morning).

Haven't heard anything about it yet, so probably not.


> Armed resistance fighters are engaged in combat with occupation forces in Jabal Mukabber, occupied #AlQuds. Open combat in the heart of occupied Palestine is a clear sign of the escalation of resistance.


> Resistance fighters open fire on IOF soldiers at the colonial Beit Furik checkpoint near #Nablus.
Am I the only one who thinks it's really significant how many of these confrontations are happening right now? Resistance in the west bank/East Jerusalem haven't been this active in forever.


> BREAKING: Multiple IOF soldiers have been seriously wounded in a Palestinian run-over operation at Zaatara checkpoint near #Nablus. The person(s) who carried out the operation escaped unharmed.

But you forgot the magic ingredient; protectionism.

EU is only a free /internal/ market.


Besides what I said above, general inflation coupled with little to no rises to people's paychecks just works like a tax in people's consumption; if in 2019 you could buy 1 bag of crisps with £1, now you can't anymore, which forces you to choose between buying the same amount of crisps and yielding on something else (say, rent) or forgoing the crisps altogether, which overall works to cool the economy and cause an even more recessionary climate.


I'm not going to argue that Europe is pursuing sound economics, but most people don't really have the option to cut down on their consumption particularly, instead their savings are being depleted and they are going into debt. Whether due to just needing to eat or bad decisions. I did debt counselling for a family that has a £2000/month budget deficit and a £14k Mercedes just yesterday.


I'm quite aware, which is why I'm pointing that it could be the case that they would be outcompeted inside the EU (it's unlikely, that's for sure, would take some catastrophic level of manufacturing collapse for that to be the case). But in a global market, which is more relevant, their goods lose relevance and the slack will be picked up by someone else (probably in East Asia, but maybe in the US).

I agree, protectionism is smart, but it doesn't fix catastrophic rises in energy price, coupled with relatively expensive labor costs. Debt spending by private citizens is just begging to have a debt crisis happen again, which is not ideal by any means.


Well, I agree that Europe is ultimately doomed, but I can also understand why there is short term GDP growth. I mean remember that growth is really just recovery from COVID still.

Has any democratic state ever preceded a socialist state?

-in this context, we're including any 'representative democracy', regardless if you consider it to be truly a democracy
-a socialist state will be any state where socialists effectively had control, regardless of how long or whether they achieved any form of socialism

While substantial anarchist/socialist territories such as Municipios Autónomos Rebeldes Zapatistas are generally not considered sovereign states, it's fine to discuss them here.

>Get down to business, all of you! You will have capitalists beside you, including foreign capitalists, concessionaires and leaseholders. They will squeeze profits out of you amounting to hundreds per cent; they will enrich themselves, operating alongside of you. Let them. Meanwhile you will learn from them the business of running the economy, and only when you do that will you be able to build up a communist republic. Since we must necessarily learn quickly, any slackness in this respect is a serious crime. And we must undergo this training, this severe, stern and sometimes even cruel training, because we have no other way out.

I just said in Africa it would be perhaps necessary, assuming no world revolution, but in a country like Britain, Germany, the USA, or even Turkey? Nah.


Not true, you have extremely uneven, borderline colonial developmental differences within the US that would require NEP style socialism to be implemented.

Unless you mean the Indian reservations, no, and even they have casinos.


I was thinking Appalachia, the deep south, Flint, Michigan, Gary, Indiana. The poorest Indian reservations don't have gambling, only pollution and irradiation from nuclear tests.


There's uneven development of course but nothing that necessitates a NEP, since all production in the USA is capitalist.

I was goofing off with oblivion ds2 Skyrim and some other older games and after watching maulers video on ds2 as a game I realized snap point turning a bug that existed was ds2 was actually extremely common to find in a shitload of older games in general including gta. Snap pointturning to someone unfamiliar with this concept is the instance where a 3d game has restricted areas a character can actually turn in relative to the cameras angle ingame that ultimately make moving that character visibly infuriating to pull off and janky

What I want to understand is why this particular bug even exists or why it ever did considering how easy something like this should be to fix or work around

Meh, as shit as this stuff is, it only needs one good ST show that takes the franchise into a new direction. I mean, the recent shows tried that but in a bad way. We won't see that until 5 or 7 years or so, when it's ripped out of Alex Kurtzman's grubby hands.


Stop reading normalfag comment sections


I was reading the reviews by professional movie critics on Rotten Tomatoes. I mean, they do this shit for a living.


Better call Saul was great, but HOTD was basically season 7 GOT at its best, which isn't saying much since season 7 is just a "better" version of season 8 which was the lowest of dogshit.


Yeah that's not true. Just by comparing the dialog it's massively superior because GRRM actually was part of the writing unlike the later GoT seasons written by the antbrains D&D. There are legitimate criticisms, like that it was too much of a period piece focused on family drama, the stupid dragon scene by the end of episode 9, and so on, but to compare it to the shitfest that was GoT seasons 6-10 (season 5 is a little bit salvagable if you ignore the last episode and the Dorne storyline) is not fair because it had proper storybuilding.
