Ukraine can't "kick Russia out". it is significantly less powerful and Russia will just increase its force strength if it ever needs to. This is why Ukraine should have just implemented the Minsk agreements and not chosen the path of war in the first place. The only thing that will prevent unnecessary deaths now is Ukraine surrendering. but Ukraine is a puppet state of the US and the US wants as many dead Ukrainians as possible and for the conflict to be as prolonged and bloody as possible. Selling tons of weapons and sacrificing as many ukrainians as possible to make russia look bad is all they have left after their efforts to destroy russia through economic war failed completely and is in the process of destroying europe instead (enjoy the coming winter!).

The latest spread of the monkeypox virus has prompted The World Health Organization (WHO) to convene an emergency meeting, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported on Friday. The disease, which is typically confined to forested areas of western and central Africa, has been spreading rapidly in a number of European countries, as well as the US and Australia since early May.

According to the report, high on the meeting’s agenda are the mechanisms behind the virus’ transmission and possible vaccination strategies. Dr Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, is reportedly attending the discussion.

The newspaper claims that the WHO is looking at whether smallpox vaccines could be used effectively to tackle the spread of back to monke.

Meanwhile, the UK government has already ordered additional stocks of the smallpox vaccine, which is being administered to people who may have been exposed to monkeypox, the Telegraph reported. On top of the 5,000 doses the British authorities have on hand at present, an order has been placed for 20,000 more shots, according to the report.
https://12ft.io/proxy?ref=&q=https://www.rt.com/news/555825-monkeypox-who-emergency-meeting-report/

In Africa, reports of the risk of death, if untreated, are as high as 10% to 11% in the Central African clade of monkeypox.[1][11]

I see a lot of praise and some criticism of the BPP on here, but not much in depth discussion of the different theories developed by the group. The Panthers were by no means a unified block, and different chapters and leaders all had different theory with regards to Black Liberation and Communism in amerikkka. As I understand it, they started out influenced by the earlier black nationalists, as well as theorists and revolutionaries such as Frantz Fanon and Malcom X, but over time, some chapters became more focused on Communism as a whole, while some went further in the direction of Black nationalism. Fred Hampton is who I see referenced the most because of the Rainbow Coalition though he was by no means "anti-idpol" or "anti-woke" as groups like the CPI try to claim, nor was he a patriot by any stretch; Eldridge Cleaver was more of a traditional Revolutionary Black Nationalist who saw Black people in amerikkka as a nation and believed that they needed to work together with other colonized people in the world and prepare for guerilla warfare (before he contracted chr*stoid brainworms at least); but one person I rarely see discussed is Huey P Newton.

Huey didn't necessarily believe that Black people in amerikkka constituted a nation in the traditional sense because they were geographically dispersed and spread out into various communities, so with this in mind, he developed a theory called Intercommunalism, which viewed the world and nations at the time as a series of communities fractured by multinational corporations and imperialist aggression. He also posited that there exists a reactionary Intercommunalism composed of small communities and cliques of the bourgeoisie (which we see take the form of imperialist and aspiring imperialist powers). This theory sought to bring about Communism by forming a united front against imperialism composed of distinct liberated zones.

I propose that Intercommunalism is applicable to modern conditions, and with some adaptation, it can be of use to the Communist cause as a whole. Capitalism and imperialism are thoroughly hegemonic at this point, and the sorts of revolutions proposed by Marx and Engels and carried out by the Bolsheviks are no longer feasible. The revolutions of national liberation that occurred during the 20th century are no longer possible either, as the imperial core has demonstrated that it has the capability to crush them like we saw in Grenada, suppress thPost too long.

I'm curious what exactly you mean by the sorts of revolutions proposed by M&E etc, and why you think it's no longer feasible?

My understanding is that a true proletarian revolution is more feasible than ever now, and will be even more in the future due to a more multi-polar world. The revolution carried out by the bolsheviks had to compromise heavily (an extremely important alliance with peasants, turning "councils of workers delegates" to "workers and soldiers", federation of self-governing nations rather than coming together as one force, etc. - all of these were necessary and beneficial to the situation at hand, but also undermined the ability of the revolution to carry out a socialist plan long term).

One point of critique rather than just questions: if you liberate a community by force, the state will do just about anything to wipe you and potentially your whole liberated community out. In the case of much of the western world, there's really no chance for guerrilla tactics. You would just be faced with an overwhelming force, sans a supportive peasant base spread through difficult mountain/jungle terrain. On the other hand, the legal establishment of liberated communities is essentially traditional tactics - building up bases of support in proletarian communities. I mean this sort of happens naturally in the course of class struggle + socialist agitation as well. There are scattered neighborhoods or cities with a high density of approval, among a backdrop of bourgeois dominated communities. If this is what you mean, then this insight is very useful and necessary to keep in mind, though not original. If you mean liberating communities through dual power, elections, etc. then I will say, this is not going to be possible (this is my prediction, based on the fact that it's never worked, and the communists who did gain power had an antithetical idea), and is directly in contrast with the idea of the dictatorship of the proletariat. The DotP means the suppression of one class by another. You might get this by voting or setting up peaceful institutions, but more likely you'd have to concede the fact that it makPost too long.

Intercommunalism just seems to be looking less at a state level in their relationships with one another, and focus moreso on local geographies to find who is the victims of imperialism and the identity of the local elite. That sort of micro look at class geography is relevant into how one organizes and how one leads a revolution, just as the Russian and Chinese and every other successful revolutionary tends to go about enacting change. It is no more and no less.

A few days ago, the name of George Orwell came to the spotlight during a discussion in the Greek Parliament. In one of their usual dogfights, Prime Minister Mitsotakis and major opposition-Syriza leader Tsipras referred to Orwell's concept of “totalitarianism” in order to attack each other. Mitsotakis quoted the novelist's aversion towards “left totalitarianism”, while Tsipras replied that his party has always been critical towards the actually existing socialism. Their reference to Orwell is no accidental: Despite their particular differences, bourgeois politicians find themselves on the same camp when it comes to anti-communism.

Eric Arthur Blair, commonly known as George Orwell, has been a symbol of enmity against the 20th century socialism. Under the pretext of “anti-totalitarianism”, conservatives, neoliberals, social democrats, progressive leftists and opportunists have idolized Orwell as an uncompromising intellectual who deserves to be respected. His famous allegorical novella, the “Animal Farm”, is considered a masterpiece of literature against Stalin's “totalitarian regime” in the Soviet Union. The so-called Orwell Foundation, based in London, which aims “to perpetuate the achievements of the British writer George Orwell” runs the Orwell Prize seeking to reward books and journalism that “making political writing into an art”.

However, the reality about Blair is quite different from the one the bourgeois propaganda presents. Orwell wasn't merely anti-stalinist or anti-soviet; he was an anti-communist who became an informer on behalf of the British intelligence agencies.

A former officer of the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, Blair joined the collaborationist trotskyite Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (POUM) during the Spanish Civil War, fighting against communists and anti-fascists. Orwell's participation in POUM shaped his fiercely anti-communist views, covered under the burden of “anti-stalinism”. Between 1941 and 1943, in the midst of the Second World War, he worked in the BBC's Eastern Service. During this period, he wrote a review for Hitler's “Mein Kampf” where he shamelessly admitted: “I should like to put it on record that I have never been able to dislike Hitler”.

Although the bourgeois propaganda presents him as an “anti-fascist”, Orwell's hostility was directed primarily against socialism-communism. His much celebrated works, like the “Homage to Catalonia”, “Animal Farm” and “1984” are deeply Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>As a result, from then until the Ceaușescu regime fell in 1989, about 1,500 Jews a year were granted exit visas to Israel in exchange for a payment of cash for every Jew allowed to leave, in addition to other Israeli aid. The exact payments were determined by the age, education, profession, employment, and family status of the emigrant. Israel paid a minimum of $2,000 per head for every emigrant, and paid prices in the range of $25,000 for doctors or scientists. In addition to these payments, Israel also secured loans for Romania and paid off the interest itself, and supplied the Romanian Army with military equipment

I adopted a little bit of a "Confucianist" analysis (without being one) to look at this, because the Trumpfags are not really conservatives in the sense of trying to preserve the social order. Okay, they might subjectively believe that's what they're doing, but by smashing up the rituals and traditions of the American state (like the transfer of power) they are undermining a very important source that the order draws on to reproduce itself.

I think it's like fascism or a similar phenomena of a reactive, nihilistic and irrational embrace of the abyss that is rising out of the declining empire's stricken heart. There's no real future there, it's the sound of the freefall.

It's related to liberalism, but when I say that liberalism and fascism are related, I don't mean it primarily as a condemnation of liberalism. More like fascism being one of the internal possibilities of its self-movement, and already we see the Democrats competing with the Republicans on their hostility toward China or Russia as the sinister foe in the shadows rigging the elections. There are enemies everywhere!!! And Trump has failed by any conventional logic, but by another measure, Trumpian-style politics seems to be succeeding at changing the atmosphere.

Yeah it's sub-optimal that PMC stuck as a term, it's not a class from a Marxist theoretical perspective. (and it used to mean professional military contractor)
Class is determined by the relation to the means of production. It would have been more correct to just say managerial strata. (A strata is a group of people with shared life-experience.) Call it PMS maybe ?

Overall if you are trying to find out whether a worker will support socialism or not, you have to look at how many labor hours they put into the system, and compare it to how many labor hours they get back in the form of goods and services. A small part of the working class gets more out then they put in, and that part will not support socialism. Of course you will always have people that betray their interests. Exploited workers can become counter revolutionary and people with a bourgeois class status can be revolutionary (for example: Friedrich Engels, Marx's best friend, sponsor and Co-Author of "The political economy of Capital" was a capitalist who owned a textile factory). So this, lets call it "labor time coefficient" is a pretty good indicator, but it is meant to describe societal flows not individual people.

Fuck politics and their movements, Marxism is a part of politics. Politics is a failure, im not gonna take up failure. You say communism isnt an end goal:
>Communism is for us not a state of affairs which is to be established, an ideal to which reality [will] have to adjust itself
And actually it's a journey
>We call communism the real movement which abolishes the present state of things. The conditions of this movement result from the premises now in existence.
But journeys and movements have destinations and you follow that up with saying "people in 2050 or the 22nd and 23rd centuries will bear its fruits" so there is a goal.

The other day I have realised the reason why I keep disagreeing with Marxism. It's because communism and marxism are political, they are seeking political action. It's about working within the current circumstances and material conditions, ergo working within the system.
As an anarchist, I reject everything inherently political. I've left politics in 2017, it's been many years since I saw how politics infiltrated anarchy and saw what politics is. I cannot unsee it, this is like when I left the Church and religion over a decade ago. I'm not going back to praying to jeebuz.

Communism is a result of class struggle within the system. I'm long past working with the system or within it, I'm interested in post-scarcity and full automation instead. JFK was one big proof of failure, that working within a system is futile. But then also thousands of years of trying to make a peaceful world through politics has resulted in more wars than ever. I'm not that ignorant as to ignore such a wealth of results to bash my head against the wall repeating the same prayer like a retard theist thinking god will help.
Marxism is a real movement working within the confines of the current situation of material conditions, solving the problems through dealing with the system, but I'm done with that shit. Other people that are long dead have tried this, but I don't want to waste my life on politics, I just want to live and thrive. I'm not gonna pursue shit that had failed in the past, I've found a solution that is realistic and possible within my own lifetime.

I ain't about to fight the same fight Marx fought and died of old age doing, and others after him also died of old age. What, ya'll wanna grow old and achieve little to fuck all? That's insanityPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

If the entire planet is politicized someone apolitical is naturally pushed into being anti-political, and thats the fault of politicos.

So let me get this straight about this whole plot of kenshis history
Apparently after the ancients died out for over a thousand fucking years in kenshis version of the Holocene. No one not a god damb faggot in the wasteland that formed soon after thought of reunderstanding the sciences and repairing the old machines and tech lying around the moon? No one bother learning math, or the basics of mechanics, or materials or anything else around them in favour of empire wars and bandit brawls?

Listen I know I’m being nit picky but humans really aren’t stupid especially in groups and thanks to post modernists there’s a lot more information that suggests a lot of the discoveries made we consider “modern” have been known for thousands of years or even longer like mechanics and to a smaller extent electrodynamics

I think the research labs are supposed to be more dangerous to loot than they're depicted in-game and the schematics themselves should be pretty much impossible to decipher without specialized knowledge, but tech hunters and machinists have made progress in things like hydroponics. The world is so dangerous and inhospitable that it's difficult to support large, interconnected populations and research centers, so it wouldn't surprise me that information sharing and innovation is limited. The one thing that bothers me is apparently no one knows how explosives work and are instead using high-tech machinery to make really sharp swords.
Also the ancients were wiped out (or left) a few thousand years ago, in the wake of that civilization's collapse the world was left scarred and dangerously polluted. When the skeletons tried to fix things they made initial progress, even setting up their own research and engineering centers, but eventually they got fucked by multiple overlapping cataclysms (like whatever created the Grid) outside of their control and things started unraveling quickly. Initially there was a resource shortage leading to the Mk-II skeleton body, and rebellions started soon after.
They may have created the cannibals in a lab to deal with the Deadcat rebels, and some disaster (?) created the canyon in Wend that flooded the skeleton manufacturing centers and put a complete stop to their production and essentially doomed their kind, as they didn't have the technology to create CPU units on their own and relied on ancient labs to do so. After the fall of that empire the world was left even more dangerous and even more polluted. There's also the fact that a couple skeletons are working diligently to ensure some of the information about the past, and possibly its technology, stays lost. There's a lot of suspicion around skeletons and technology in general, and the Holy Nation is dedicated to making sure that information is destroyed as well.

Basically it goes like this.
>First empire / Ancients.
Space fairing tier civilisation that collapsed for hazy reasons, we don't know exactly why, maybe a bronze age collapse on a universal scale, skeleton rebellion or some convergence of all the head-canons the fandom has come up with - We don't even know that the world of 'Kenshi' was the capital planet of this empire, it could have just been some periphery penal colony or some shit.
**My headcanon has always been that potentially after Obedience and the Skeletons on 'Kenshi' revolted whatever galactic empire Kenshi was part of declared some sort of 'quarantine' (think the way systems with [REDACTED] presence is treated if your a fan of starsector - Anything trying to get off world is detected by some sort of autonomous weapons system like the eye and gets blown the fuck out of the sky, thus why there's so much industrial / ship wreckage all around the planets surface - This galatic
>First Interregnum
After shit collapsed everything was absolutely tits up for a while - this is never really expanded upon
>Second Empire.
Cat-Lon and his skeleton army unify most the continent asides from the shek cities and the hives, Cat-Lon is pretty cool for a while and the population began growing again, Labs were re-established 'Pretty good!'
But then a combination of crisis's like the 'Northern humans turning to cannibalism' among other things made Lon act more and more like a DICKtator until whoever Okran actually was led an uprising, taking over 'Okran's pride' (One of the most fertile places on the continent, with accessible fresh water) - Effectively shattering the empire, Cat-Lon essentially runs away to the Ashlands to go insane and whatever territory was still held by the 'empire' was reorganised into the 'united cities' with its system of local nobility / feudalism with puppet emperor's

Kenshi (as in the planet you play on) was almost certainly a periphery world in the ancient space-empire, otherwise there would likely be many more relics of that age other than stuff like the Eye, the busted (nuclear?) generators in the eastern desert, and the shards of I-frames from skyscrapers you can find in parts of the desert, so on.

Plus Stobe's sacrifice was against the 1st Empire trying to destroy the planet for unknown reasons (maybe some kind of degenerative plague, which eventually made all of the northern human tribes into feral cannibals) on top of the Eye satellites which were put in orbit to basically scourge all life from the planet but failed, hence why large chunks of the continent are just desert and the sea level fell - the Swamps were originally a massive port city, according to a Skeleton.

As such you can presume that the continent Kenshi takes place on has grown across the years as the Eyes kept working their heat-ray magic and evaporating more of the water, making a decent chunk of the Atlantaeuropa hellscape deserts which the UC lives on come into being, which explains why so much of it is just dead and can't grow anything - shit is literally salt-sands.

Also since the 1st Empire was so hilariously advanced, its pretty likely that a lot of the most powerful tech was far beyond the reach of common people, and simpler, easier to recreate tech like firearms had simply ceased to exist because they were so ineffective compared to the death lasers they were using. Advanced bionics made melee weapons viable again, Metal Gear Rising style, which is why you have the super-advanced Meitou weapons lying around as well. There are probably so few due to the 1st Empire taking a lot of their shit with them when they left the planet, so there is really only scraps to work with for rebuilding civilization. Even the 2nd Empire realized this - with the means of making new skeletons lost, and loads of skeletons committing mass suicide after the [REDACTED], they knew they were a dying race and tried to use the remaining technology to create new races to inherit the functions of the Empire after they fell - hence the Shek to act as legal enforces, and the Hivers to act as producers for goods and materials (this is more specuPost too long.

PE was "just walk around the gym until the class is over" and Health was the most worthless bullshit (I learned about DRIVING then the human body) Sex Ed (from the first one we had in 5th Grade) was piss poor always being extremely rushed (we had it again in 7th and 8th grade and we didn't even finish because it was shoehorned in.

To do that justice would probably require the whole season, which honestly might have been better than the season 3 we actually got. Instead of building up Ozai as some ultimate anime villain, he and Aang cross paths a few times or something like that and Aang works his way through the Fire Nation sabotaging the war effort and solving people's problems, undermining morale on the home front. By the time of the comet maybe they just can't hold up the war machine any longer because of the combination of sabotage and Aang subverting their loyalty to the war effort. Like the episode where he wins over the school kids, but for the whole season.

Perhaps, but honestly even if you only changed the final episodes of S3 you could still have Aang do the entire curbstomp of Ozai, then deactivate his avatar mode and talk, casually slapping aside Ozai's attempts and finally taking his abilities, not through energy bending from a special turtle, but perhaps an advanced version of Ty Lee's abilities that he uses to shut the Chakra-gates he already learned of, and in taking this non-fatal route finally prove to Ozai, that HIS idea of peace and non-violence is superior and that he proved it by beating Ozai at his violent game and then displaying mercy.

But expanding on my 'Talk no Jutsu' analogy, Talk no Jutsu works usually because of the enemy’s inherit contradiction in their beliefs and actions. That's the reason it didn't have relevance to a character like Madara or Deidara or Hidan. Ozai is supposed to be a generic fascist, and that's honestly fine, Lily Orchard's one good video talks about this.

BUT your idea could function. Aang could use perhaps some Spirit bending thing to demonstrate to Ozai the things he saw and felt, hiding in the Fire Nation and other nations, the squalor and hatred and abuse and death and misery, all wrought by has actions even for his people. To demonstrate that his idea of conquest brought nothing but destruction and would eventually destroy him too.

What explains why the proletariat is so bluepilled?

In Marxist theory, false consciousness is a term describing the ways in which material, ideological, and institutional processes are said to mislead members of the proletariat and other class actors within capitalist societies, concealing the exploitation intrinsic to the social relations between classes. Friedrich Engels (1820–1895) used the term "false consciousness" in an 1893 letter to Franz Mehring to address the scenario where a subordinate class willfully embodies the ideology of the ruling class. Engels dubs this consciousness "false" because the class is asserting itself towards goals that do not benefit it.

"Consciousness", in this context, reflects a class's ability to politically identify and assert its will. The subordinate class is conscious: it plays a major role in society and can assert its will due to being sufficiently unified in ideas and action.

Even after all these years what explains why false consciousness is still so dominant among the workers? What is the materialist explanation?

Those who think it is false consciousness, I do not have numbers and may be I'm wrong, but how will explain that with wide access to the Internet with tones of com propaganda, worker organization did not increase?

I'd say that false consciousness predominately grows out of material insulation. Which is to say, you're well-off enough to afford to be stupid. You've got enough distance from actual danger to let your brain craft gods and monsters you obey and fear.

I think a recent scientific agreed with this for the most part. I'll try to find it later. Essentially it said there's very little "coherence" or "principles" in modern politics, rather they're used as a post-hoc justification for why you do what you do. Those who were better educated (and by extent, likely raised in a better material environment) were more not less likely to fall for this post-hoc justification. Essentially, scientists discovered Marx was right when he saw the superstructure as reinforcing but not making up, the material base of society.

But as Marxists we've got to wonder how we can deal with workers not being conscious of their needs, especially in the first world? If I had to throw in my two cents, I think it's fundamentally a division in reality. Which is to say in The West, reality appears to be individually created rather than collectively observed. Through the effort of marketers, the internet, social media, the reality we inhabit is not as a collective body or class, but as individual consumers. This may explain to some extent the bizarre divergence between Conservatives and Liberals, they're fundamentally looking at two completely different realities constructed from their own individual imagination. Conservatives just happen to be more batshit crazy most of the time (a la thinking Trump is anything other than a self-serving coward.)

The only antidote I can come up with to this, is that some kind of common society or community has to be restored. This is particularly difficult in America because individualism is cancer out here: we ride individual transportation, work in individual little cubicles, earn individual wages, live in individual homes, watch individual television shows. We're submerged in our own reality, not the reality of our fellows.

If you look at where the organized workers work, from the news, where strikes happen, it is Deer factory, aviation, docks, etc where workers gather in big numbers.

With capital movement to China, there is not that many domestic big factories left. Somehow it looks imporant that many workers gather at the same place, although I do not have data on small companies.

Immigrants. Immigrants in Poland work as self-employed, although they work at factories, but labor laws somehow do not apply fully to them. They can work 16 h/day no problem from the law point, 12 h/day is common. They travel from Ukraine to Poland, work for something like 4 months and go home.
To understand, the number of immigrants is huge, this can't be ignored.

Gig economy. So the question: 4 hours work day no wage cut.. Is jut not interesting to gig workers.

Some full time workers actually work less than 8 hours/day.

Small businesses are a romanticized petit bourgeois fantasy who often exploit workers worse due to laxer labor laws, "we're a family" dynamic in which you'll often do work for free, and are the biggest impediment to minimum wage increases.

Broke: The Cold War began with McCarthyism

Nope.

Joke: The Cold War began with the Palmer Raids.

Nope.

Bespoke Woke Toke: The cold war right after the American Civil War. OPEN YOUR EYES.

Read through any substantial history of reconstruction and you will find that negative mentions of communism and socialism and anarchism begin happening constantly in the American media during this period. Previous periods neglected to mention it. Once the civil war was over though, and the frontier began to get smaller, the incentive to push out bourgeois propaganda against striking workers was increased. The paris commune spooked the fuck out of the American bourgeois and I think there is a strong case that reconstruction, emancipation, and the overseas spectacle of the Paris Commune and the 1st international were enough to trigger unprecedented class warfare in the USA.
