during an american civil war 2 discussion someone mentioned in passing how a military coup would be way more likely than a straight up civil war and that got me thinking, how close are we already to that point and to what extent is it already true?

lets say hypothetically a bunch a generals just straight up ignore a legislatures authority, what happens then? also if we say that JFK was killed for possibly doing a detente hasnt this basically already happened?

A permanent state of unelected/appointed officials who form a set of political/economic cliques form the real working apparatus of the US, of which includes some of the military brass. Economic institutions and political groups are largely formed by or for this clique to push policy solutions and to make sure elected candidates appoint their people to positions, thus perpetuating their own power.

Mind, there is not one of them, but several, all with their own competing economic and political interests, but all ultimately invested in upholding the global dominance of the US.

Well in many cases, esp. in the third world, the general/clique of generals do rule directly, see Gaddafi, Sankara, Argentine Junta, etc, but America is too ideologically wedded to the idea of democracy and liberty, the population wouldn't accept an outright military rule but could easily be fooled into tolerating a barely veiled one.

Executive branch's various departments usually, and the cliques are all held by various porkies form through mutually aligned interests. Most rightoid cliques, for example, are formed by national defense porkies and national resource extraction porkies. This is why the right is directed to be "anti-globalist", in reality their porky sponsors want protectionist economic policies for themselves and American exporting. Most of the ones around the Dems are international finance and real estate development types, all of their incredibly means-tested social benefits often just serve themselves. There are also others - tech porkies have a hard-on against China because of their blooming tech industry, international trade porkies are the most status-quo imperialist, industrial porkies are largely a minority in American power now but still wield power in local politics, and since they are weak they are often used as a football by other porkies for their marginal support as a kind of consensus building - etc. Once you see it, it becomes easier to pick them out.

E O TRF-4 MANDOU SOLTAR DE NOVO NO MESMO DIA HUEHUEHEUHEUHUEH

Quem ai se lembra dos HCs-canguru? Depois que Lula deu um gás na PF e ela começou a fazer grandes operações. O PIG, que vivia falando em cupssaum e em como deveriamos fazer algo como a Mãos Limpas, aplaudiu a modernização e fortalecimento da instituição, mas só até a PF fisgar um peixe graudíssimo… não, uma baleia… não, um legítimo leviatã. O discurso do PIG parou com o falso moralismo e tornou-se fanaticamente libertário e denunciou a "sanha punitivista" da PF e, é claro, do patê. Absolutamente nada tinha mudado, a PF estava operando da mesma maneira que o PIG estava bajulando, foi claro como cristal que essa investigação sobre um bilionário (nem preso foi, só estava sendo investigado mesmo), efetuada sob a Operação Satiagraha, bastou pra fazer quase toda a grande mídia nacional der meia-volta completa no assunto. Nunca vou esquecer que chegaram a comparar Paulo Lacerda, pivô do "escândalo", a ninguém menos que Lavrenti Beria!

Paulo Lacerda foi o principal responsável pelo renascimento da PF. Indicado por Lula em 2003, foi transferido pra Abin em 2007 presumivelmente pra chefiar a renovação também dessa organização era (e, presumo, ainda é) um típico bom-moço, funcionário público exemplar, garantista penal (ao contrário de grande parte do PIG que o aplaudia e passou a atacá-lo), e bastou prender um único bilionário pra cair em desgraça. Em 2008, a Operação Satiagraha da PF, com apoio logístico da Abin, prendeu preventivamente um tal de Daniel Dantas, sob o argumento (corretíssimo) de que, em liberdade, ele interferiria com as investigações. Gilmar Mendes foi correndo pra dar um HC pro bilionário. esse crápula, indicado STF por FHC, sempre foi um vendilhão, usando do cargo pra comprar favores com poderosos, mas tal foi a profundeza que chegamos que, na era bozozóica, ele se converteu em um dos improváveis heróis da nossa democracia. Mas enfim, na era, era só um pilantra bem alocado. Pois bem, menos de 10 horas depois desse HC, a Satiagraha mandou prender Dantas de novo, e, de novo, Gilmar foi correndo dar outro HC.

Lula não resistiu muito ao PIG. Fora a frouxice de sempre, nesse caso, ele também tinha interesse am abafar, pois um leviatã como Dantas é do tipo que está no âmago do Estado capitalista,Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

The story goes like this: Earth is captured by a technocapital singularity as renaissance rationalitization and oceanic navigation lock into commoditization take-off. Logistically accelerating techno-economic interactivity crumbles social order in auto-sophisticating machine runaway.

Armchair generals of the riots are fucking useless, material circumstances actually dictate what people are doing in the streets in France currently, it's not Hong Kong where the police is nice and protestors have money, media, and CIA backing. Protestors can't just buy gas masks, helmets, weapons and fight the cops in ranks. There's a whole galaxy of (poor) people and orgs who want different things ranging from revolution to sausage grilling acting together, and one of the most important things is damage control so too many people don't get arrested and thrown in jail or worse while maintaining a high tempo of protests and strikes. Gawking at the Zengakuren is masturbatory leftoid weeb practice anyway, there's the same in France if not better only good people try to avoid filming violent actions from well organized protestors for obvious reasons.

Late capitalism is not the post-apocalypse, or a giant maximum security prison. The average American prole is not nearly periled enough for this sort of desperation. The mainstream right wing does occasionally mingle with reactionaries, but when push comes to shove, they are treated as liabilities… which they usually are, given how they tend to be mentally unstable.
Only a naive fuckhead would not dismiss ethnonationalists as the lumpens they are, but the idea that white nationalism is still the dominant force in bourgeois or counter-revolutionary ideology is pure liberal horseshit. It's the product of the minds of sheltered academics who think American culture has not fundamentally changed in any way since the 17th century.

Thinking about mass shooters and their motives, does it really matter what they believe? The dopamine rush associated with the entire spectacle of the thing requires nothing behind it, leaving the actor total creative freedom in the symbology they use or manifesto they write

What's frightening about the act isn't the accessory motive they claim or what's developed by the media to be the shooter's 'mythos'. What's frightening is the idea that it really doesn't matter, anyone could do this, at any time, for no reason at all. Terror has no face.

There seems to be a brutal awareness of this among certain sections, to the extent that you'll sometimes see headlines like this. In America I think there's still somewhat of a sense that this can still be managed, through regulation of firearms or "arming teachers" and similar.

The reason i post this webm is because when antibiotic restistant bacteria becomes normal, the private healthcare system will literally be incapable of surviving it because of how specific the testing must be to determine the correct bacteriophage to apply to bacterial infections compared to antibiotics which can be given to anybody with a bacterial infection. The private healthcare system will either be forced to jack up the price of treating bacterial infections to completely unreasonable prices, or begin killing people for being sick, which is what canada is doing now. This is why we must always side with comrade disease rather than with the reactionary forces of private health clinics.

>Taken together, the investigators write, these findings suggest that SARS-CoV-2 infection damages the CD8+ T cell response, an effect akin to that observed in earlier studies showing long-term damage to the immune system after infection with viruses such as hepatitis C or HIV.

How many on this board would agree with me that reform and violence are both necessary for positive social change (historical revolutions have been accompanied by and must necessarily be accompanied by attempts for reform, reforms have been gained upon threat of revolution), that even if it wasn't supporting reform is just a basic act of humanity for those in need, and those whose praxis amounts to '"make life hard for capitalists' are nothing but infantile ideologues of resentment + envy?

I have a hard time believing that Marx wouldn't look at these anti-reform types and question *why* they're supporting a marxist teleology in the first place if they haven't got any real concrete desire for a better life for anyone- it's giving inauthenticity. The empirical and rational grounding for 'revolutionary purity' is shaky at best and there's plenty of historical precedent for Marxists to believe that the path to communism MIGHT be a reformist one (E.G., Kalecki, Castoriadis, Robinson, Wolff). I'm not even saying that it is, I just don't really understand why people reject such a possibility out of hand except for more or less emotional reasons, and how they excuse their innane criticisms of those who actually attempt to improve the lives of people today? Is it a naive accelerationism?

I'm interested to hear why everyone is so against any possibility that reform could ever result in a social transvaluation of values. I don't really see anything in Marx's historical analyses that necessitates that violent revolution MUST be the only method by which large scale transformation of material relations must occur. I also think there's been a lot of ground made in the last century that I think a traditional interpretation of Marx is no longer really tenable (although the fundamental kernel of his philosophy and plenty of his insights are still valuable). Even Marxian economists/philosophers don't really take the 'revolution only, proleterian/bourgeoisie and nothing else', old school Marxist position seriously (consider those names above) despite still agreeing that Marx's task is fundamentally a noble and worthy one (empiricist analyses of material relations of history with a teleology of positive social transformation).

I really like Wolfi's translations, although some of their own works are fairly tedious in comparison to their funny footnotes.

Anyhow its rare to find people that truly engage with Stirner and have a strong understanding of what he was talking about, which isn't to say my interpretation is perfect, but I think really it comes down to how much time people are willing to invest into read/re-reading and how open-minded they are.

Well, first of all how can you establish that definitely? Second of all, if you have a pest infestation, you can't just ask them kindly to leave. You have to use violence and exterminate them.

In my mind the only absolutely true scenario in which there is no conceivable constructive solution is when your opposition is intent on inflicting violence on you and you are forced to resort to self-defense. The pest example could be classified as self-defense broadly construed .

Human beings are evolved to coexist. We do so peaceably until someone–Cain perhaps–decides to violate that harmony. Violence should be used only to restore balance, not to shift it.

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.

After the revolution, sure, but prospective party members here are wary of even getting a foot in the door for fear of undemocratic tendencies. It isn't even a matter of petty bourgeois/middle class/PMC sensibilities, as the people in the video were committed, hardcore working class communists for most of their adult lives during the height of the communist movement in America, yet most of them ditched CPUSA all the same after the secret speech.

I suppose it's hard for us to understand the shock that these people must have experienced at the time. The 40s were easily the height of Soviet prestige in the West for obvious reasons relating to the war, and even when the liberal establishment turned on the Soviets at the start of the Cold War it would have been easy to dismiss those attacks as propaganda. Then along comes cornman who appears to say that actually a lot of these accusations are true. I can see why the shock would stun and disillusion people, and at least lead them into various other anti-Soviet leftist tendencies.

West Bank settlers win Israel parliament vote
Israel's settler movement celebrated Tuesday after parliament annulled part of a law banning them from residing in areas of the occupied West Bank the then Israeli government evacuated in 2005. That year the government of Ariel Sharon, a long-time settler champion turned peacemaker, oversaw a unilateral withdrawal by Israel from the Gaza Strip, and the removal of Jewish settlers from the Palestinian enclave and four settlements in the northern West Bank.

Top Israeli minister: ‘No such thing’ as Palestinian people
“There is no such thing as a Palestinian nation. There is no Palestinian history. There is no Palestinian language,” he said in France late Sunday. He spoke at a memorial event for a French-Israeli right-wing activist who denied the existence of a Palestinian nation and advocated annexation of the West Bank. The lectern was adorned with what appeared to be an image showing the map of Israel that included the occupied West Bank, Gaza and Jordan.

Labor Tensions Rise in Stalled West Coast Port Contract Talks
Tensions in long-running contract talks at West Coast ports are worsening, with employers accusing unionized dockworkers of slowing cargo handling at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the nation’s busiest gateway for imported consumer goods. The sharp rhetoric marks a shift from a longstanding agreement to maintain public silence on issues around the negotiations, which began last spring. The two sides appear to be no closer to bridging the gap on their disagreements, pointing to the possibility of deeper disruptions to U.S. trade flows. … Willie Adams, the president of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union representing dockworkers, said his members are allowed “to take a lunch break just like everyone else.” Union officials said truck backups can form outside terminals for many reasons and that the PMA was highlighting the recent queues to influence public opinion.

Critics Warn Another Fed Rate Hike Would Be the 'Straw That Breaks the Camel's Back'
The Fed is widely, though not universally, expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points on Wednesday despite concerns that the central bank's tightening of monetary policy over the past year is at least partially responsible for the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), a top lender to tech startups and venture capital firms. Rakeen Mabud, chief economist at the Groundwork Collaborative, warned Tuesday that another rate increase would be a huge mistake with potentially devastating consequences that will fall most heavily on vulnerable workers.

The FBI Used an Undercover Cop With Pink Hair to Spy on Activists and Manufacture Crimes
The young woman with long pink hair claimed to be from Washington state. One day during the summer of 2020, she walked into the Chinook Center, a community space for left-wing activists in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and offered to volunteer. “She dressed in a way that was sort of noticeable,” said Samantha Christiansen, a co-founder of the Chinook Center. But no one among the activists found that unusual or alarming; everyone has their own style. They accepted her into the community. The pink-haired woman said her name was Chelsie. She also dropped regular hints about her chosen profession. “She implied over the course of getting to know her that she was a sex worker,” said Jon Christiansen, Samantha’s husband and another co-founder of the Chinook Center. “I think somebody else had told me that, and I just was like, ‘Oh, OK. That makes sense,’” said Autum Carter-Wallace, an activist in Colorado Springs. “I never questioned it.” But Chelsie’s identity was as fake as her long pink hair. The young woman, whose real name is April Rogers, is a detective at the Colorado Springs Police Department. The FBI enlisted her to infiltrate and spy on racial justice groups during the summer of 2020.

Builds infrastructure, factories, schools, ports and mines. In exchange for resources obviously. African countries see this as a better deal than the one offered by the Europeans.

>For these reasons I've been thinking for a long time that any cadre education today in communist orgs most reverse the classic order of teaching Marxist material (national exploitation -> international exploitation)
but the reason for international exploitation is the contradictions in national exploitation, which are reached much earlier. If you don't understand exploitation that happens irrespective of nations, you won't see why international exploitation is necessitated historically.

I see that you want a more realistic picture of world capitalism as it exists, rather than the idealized version marxists often use which relies on accepting the abstraction of the economy away from the state, wars, etc. before reconcretizing, but to get that it would probably be best to go chronologically then, from merchant capital in the middle ages and its logic, to its eventual control over production, leading to specialization etc, the expansionist ambitions of the aristocratic class and feudal state, revolutions in productivity and technology, colonialism, the industrial revolution, crises, dispossession and the work of landed capital capital, money capital vs productive capital, financial capital in the early 20th century, new stagnant stage of capitalism (turns out to be absolute overproduction), the first world war and revolution, crisis, failures of attempts to overcome the crisis short of the second world war, respite from the crisis, US (and often its allies) worldwide military adventurism, 70s and the long downturn, debt boom, contradictions and oscillatory movements in the regime of absolute overproduction

I think marx does a good job though. Capital was never purely national, just like it was never purely economic and free from the government. Marx knows these things and makes them clear, but also often works in well-worn abstractions from classical economics before bringing reality back around. A concrete understanding of the conditions of the economy from the first beginnings of capital are probably necessary to not misunderstand him.

Agreed. I think that fashion has to 'revolve' is the most telling thing, being able to re-stock the shelves and re-sell the same things twice (the jacket in general, not the specific jacket) is very telling. IDK any adult who 'follows fashion' so to speak i assume it is for bourgeoisie youth and so has entered mainstream culture in a kind of 'aspirational' way? Even in cultures that have fashion as a part of it fashion is not viewed in the same way as 'fashion culture', if that make sense.

Could not recomend sewing enough. I don't have a machine any more and my hands tend to cramp up these days and still it it such an invaluable skill that has saved so many good cloths for me and stopped others from getting wrecked when an issue is fixed when it is still small. It is weird to me how my parents generation all knew how to sew and other basic skills yet in my friend circle not everyone can and they are part of a political milieu that really emphasises a DIY attitude, I would make an educated guess in 'normie' society it is even less, in boojie society probably 0.

>Come to think of it, how would you present a race that's above capitalism, feudalism, communism
They never developed a class society or developed something different. For fantasy races it makes the most sense to do this based on the aspects that make them different.

Elves live forever so the original elders hold onto power indefinitely. Instead of producing heirs they just keep having offspring, who they keep loyal to them. Controlling reproduction is still important but for different reasons - only the elders get to reproduce, because the more generations removed you are the less loyal you are.

Dwarves are so focused on crafting by nature that they don't need class to emerge for them to start producing a surplus, and because they all bond over their common drives to mine and craft, they naturally lean toward a planned economy accumulating treasures and devices. Their greed might make them vulnerable to the kind of people who became early capitalists in human society, but without an already-existing feudal state to seize, the wannabe capitalists lack the power to do primitive accumulation or to proletarianize other dwarves, making capitalist production at most an oddity on the periphery of dwarven society. Through their tendency to tinker and dig, they are most likely to start burning coal and to develop the steam engine, leading to steampunk communism. However, they also tend to be insular and knowing the kinds of things that the capitalist dwarves get up to, are extremely protective lest early industrial technology proliferate among other races who lack the worker-centric ethos of dwarven society.

That's up to them, but probably the least resource intensive is infantilizing the kids emotionally and making them desperate for parental approval that motivates them. Maybe that's why elves reach maturity at a much older age, too. The more kids you have the more they have to compete for attention but also the more opportunity for rebellion, so there would be a balance to strike.

The thing about being immortal is you have plenty of time, and you don't need to have a high birth to maintain your population because nobody dies of natural causes. So the leaders of the society can personally keep raising a new generations of mommy's boys and daddy's girls as necessary. You don't have to rely on some ideological apparatus or state institution if you can personally raise your people the same way generation after generation. Elves would have the least dynamic society by far, and probably be continuously speaking basically the same language and holding the same ideology with thousands of years of continuity.

Elves tend to me more magically inclined as well, which means the elders would have more time to master magic than entire civilizations of other species. They wouldn't even need mundane psychological abuse. They have charm spells and such. In a really extreme version (like the drow perhaps) they might dominate person so much that younger generations don't even form individual identities and their society is more like an ant colony than a human-like culture.

Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

What if the proletariat isn't the revolutionary subject?

There's one really good argument against Marxism. And it isn't the stupid arguments about how Hayek said central planners can't solve the millions of equations, Venezuela, or human nature.

The real problem with Marxism is the lack of a revolutionary subject. In countries where socialist revolutions succeeded, they were often on the backs of peasants, not industrial workers. There are precisely zero examples of successful proletarian revolutions, and zero ATTEMPTS at new proletarian revolutions since the 1980s or so (i.e. Peru), certainly for the whole 21st century.

The fact is that the thesis of the proletariat as the revolutionary subject has essentially been disproven by the 20th century. Any form of socialism or communism going forward would need to have an alternative driving force, and would therefore not really be Marxism.

It's actually possible capitalism doesn't even produce a revolutionary subject at all.

Other possibilities are counter-economics (maybe coops or prefigurative cybernetics), ultra-vanguardism aka blanquism and coups, accelerationism, or even some more outlandish examples like building humanity into a hivemind so that it is ontologically incapable of commodity production and therefore defaults to borg-communism.

Even though Bookchin rightly critiques Marxism in this regard, he just goes on larping "democracy" as though nothing is changed, there's no reason for a bunch of randos to make communism or anarchism or communalism whether you call them proletariat or not.

I've seen way too many social movements fail or be swallowed, only for the next generation of rubes to come along and mindlessly cheer for war, imperialism, capitalism and for the elites to drink their blood. The only difference is trad flavored vs woke flavored, real life is like the ending of mass effect the fucking universe explodes and you only get to choose the color of the explosion.

us leftists and* left-lib bourgies who found racism abhorrent

How are we suppose to ignore this and just whine about revolution being impossible? We have the multi-pronged attack of dedollarization from the large :AES state, china and a breaking of white solidarity by the black movement and lgbt movement. The only real praxis right now is then preparation for the large inevitable economic crash that is being staved off with money printing/inflation

WTF IS EVEN THE JUSTIFICATION FOR LANDLORDS

they literally are just middlemen except instead of just taking a cut, you just rent the thing and never get to own it. A 'normal' business makes a profit by producing things people are willing to pay for, and go out of business if they don't. Ownership of land and housing doesn't prove that because its a necessity in order to live and also the landlord didn't produce anything. They just are paid for the simple fact that they own what other people need to live, without having created it or even necessarily improving it. And in the case of land, its literally impossible to create more. It's just a private form of taxation, but instead of the government doing it directly, it grants a person a certificate of monopoly over an area which can be resold.

I'm curious to see how capitalists even justify being a landlord considering even adam smith said they were parasites.

>The soybean, soy bean, or soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.
>Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, nattō, and tempeh. Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes.
>Soybeans contain significant amounts of phytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop. Soybean is the most important protein source for feed farm animals (that in turn yields animal protein for human consumption).
Post recipes and other tidbits relating to soy. Did you eat soy today? Post about it in here! Everything related to maximizing one's intake of soy and promoting soy culture is on-topic.
Pic related is today's lunch, a veritable cornucopia of soy (soyucopia?) consisting of:
>plain tofu
>soy sauce
>fried soy mince
>soy schnitzel
>a bowl of edamame
and finally, for desert
>soyghurt
naturally this feast was entirely vegan
finally, remember our motto here at /soy/:
<Where do you want to soy today?

Thread reads like /pol/ seething, but whatever, soy products are pretty neat. Tofu is incredibly versatile. Western stores usually only have "firm tofu" which is not easy to work with unless you're doing stir fry.

Other tofu preparations are great to add to a lot of meals, even when they have meat. For example, you can make a nice meat soup broth with a ton of veggies and meat pieces, then add soy/tofu balls (the ones that you buy dry and have to hydrate to use) and the balls are like sponges that will soak up the broth. You can also use tofu as a texture. It also keeps way better than meat. Sometimes I'm running out of meat, but I have an emergency ration of tofu to increase the protein content of whatever I cook.

Also good for salads, for example. Its so versatile, honestly. If you're scared about girl hormones or whatever, then just buy estrogen blockers or testosterone, or better yet, actually read scientific studies on the matter and drop the idiocy.

Soy sauce, both light and dark are absolutely essential if you're a home cook and strive for easy, quick, impromptu, and delicious meals.

Soy milk is meh.

Edamames are nice. I like to put tajin (a Mexican powder candy) on it and maybe some soy sauce, then cook that shit for a bit. Maybe a lil drip of seasame oil too.

Chinese cuisine, which is largely not vegetarian, has tons and tons of tofu preparations and tofu presentations.

What exactly is the point of soymaxxing? Isn't it just some ridiculous way of just going normal vegan? Is soymaxxing supposed to be "extra healthy" than just regular vegan diet somehow?

Was Xavier a reformist cuck for wanting mutants and humans aka their oppressors to live in peace?

Did Magneto go too far by wanting to create another oppressive mutant class?

The X-Men are literally glow ops for the government to hunt down radical mutant groups or enemies of the state, particularly the American state. So I'd say that Magneto is a proper revolutionary.

Enough with good openings, lets change the subject to bad ones. The kind that immediately telegraphs the show is going to be garbage, thus sparing you wasting time watching it.
