uhh did stalin really do nuffin? cause this seems kinda sketch. and since we're all marxists what's the explanation here that isn't great man or personality based? why were the old revolutionaries nearly all purged from the state in the stalin era

Boo hoo. If anti-communists want to call it "ethnic cleansing" then go ahead. As communists we know repression against bourgeois elements is necessary and should be unconstrained by law. Not every nationality will necessarily survive the transition to communism.


>Not every nationality will necessarily survive the transition to communism
You are a bong, right?


It's funny that you think a person's ethnicity makes them a bourgeoisie element, but I guess when all you have in your life is shilling for a nation that doesn't exist anymore on an immensely obscure Chan board you'll make any mental leap no matter how retarded. I mean, it was ethnic cleansing, entire ethnic groups were forcefully deported from their lands but whatever.

I think it's time to log off, I'm sure you have assignments due for your undergrad course.


I'm reading through it, anyway. Interrogations obviously contradict each other, meaning at least some of them total fake.

>- fm perpetrator2004 Yezhov1.doc; Soima; Polianskii 241-245.

>"How did you use this NKVD laboratory in your espionage and conspiratorial activities?" asked Rodos, glancing at Kobulov who was sitting beside him.

That's a totally fake confession. Laboratory X was a Perestroika/90s meme which liberals tried to force to make Kirov dead by Stalin's hands.

About homosexuality stuff. Look at this from another interrogation:

Every nationality is divided into proletarians and bourgeoisie. In some cases like the USSR nationalism is used as an anti-communist battering ram to split it, as happened in 1985-1991. Around 10% of any given nationality are bourgeois. And what will you do with these people?
Deportation should be considered a blessing anyway. The proper Chekist response would be just to shoot them and be done with it. No matter what bourgeois lackeys will tell you, merciless mass red terror is a good thing.

Bereitschaftspolizei isn't special forces, shut the fuck up. They are crayon eaters that like to use nightsticks.
>federal police patrol airports with ARs
This is true.
>There is an AR in every police car stored away
Quite likely also true. Doesn't mean they carry it around to check documentation, that is quite the leap.
>military for health reasons, meaning they help out in emergency rooms, flying people out to less occupied hospitals.
This is good or you want these patients to die gruesomely?


The vaccines work in what sense. Against the need for intensive care? Nevermind that this is also manufactured due to a reduction in available intensive care units, then yes, all the old geezers and people with preconditions should get the vaccine. But if it's not protecting against spreading it, then there is no reason why healthy young men or children should get it who have a miniscule risk of a severe risk just like influenza or something. It's simply irrational, especially as they abandon all other measures and use this issue to ramp up the security state.

But even if they worked against spreading it, I would still raise awareness against a ramped up surveillance and security state with total control over people's bodies because I'm not a fucking naive liberal.

>Bereitschaftspolizei isn't special forces, shut the fuck up. They are crayon eaters that like to use nightsticks.
There isn't a dictionary definition of "special forces" you retard. Obviously I'm not talking about the GSG9 here. Riot police isn't regular police that checks your driving license, is all I wanted to say. And yes, Bereitschaftspolizei also has ARs in their lockers.
>Quite likely also true. Doesn't mean they carry it around to check documentation, that is quite the leap.
Video related, check out at 14 seconds.
>This is good or you want these patients to die gruesomely?
This is quite the moralistic and liberal trick you are doing here. It implies "no alternatives" like the neoliberal preachers have been telling us since years. You didn't have to reduce the intensive care units. You didn't have to deploy the fucking military, instead force civil companies to help and fly them out.


Ordnungsamt is police that have been taught literacy so quite the opposite of Bereitschaftseinheit.
Yeah, clearly discussion over. I hope you are gunned down by the SEK.


It does prevent spreading, to an extent, but it's not perfect, still way better than nothing though.

Like fucking hell, pick your battles, you're just making all 'anti establishment' people look bad by rallying against vaccines.

Can we get a europe general?
I'm kinda curious what's going on in the countries of my fellow europeans, but I feel like having a general for each separate country, with each speaking their own language segregates us further fellow euro brothers and sisters.

They're a threat to the extent that traditional elites and police agencies – which fascist groups are parasitically dependent on – prop them up as a way of dialing up pressure like an on/off switch. Without that, they can't find their own asses with their own two hands. There's a high likelihood if you see a fascist group that seems fairly stable and is holding together that the leader is an informant and is getting funding from the cops to run the organization. That's basically the whole post-war history of the American and European far right. So, pushing back against these groups requires at least understanding that and then acting in the most effective and *efficient* way possible.


Your average street goon isn't a threat, the bourgeoisie which creates fascism is the problem.

The liquidation of fascism must be the liquidation of the bourgeoisie who created it.

What if fascism isn't an issue because neoliberalism has superseded it entirely


The complete lack of organized revolutionary sentiment within the modern industrial proletariat makes both fascism and communism moribund. Fascism has a small base of support among the disaffected petty bourgeoisie, and revolutionary socialism likewise has some supporters among academics and boutique activists, but the depoliticization and disengagement of most workers means neither will lead to a viable mass movement in the near future.

Link to actual article
Why link to twitter?

On a practical level why didn't the Indian government set a price floor by setting a gurranted state purchase price?
Or did they and the reform failed because of lack of trust in the Indian government's good faith?


MSP (minimum support price) are already a thing for farmers in India.
The struggle was before Modi was intentioend to SCRAP them, forcing basically 20% of the Indian population towards bankruptcy to increase AgroPorky profits.

This (along with the complete lack of respect for the sacrifice of 700 comrades dead in the struggle) is why GT's article is morally disgusting and explicitly rightwing in politics.


*because not before


Hrrrm to play devil's advocate perhaps Global Time's perspective is rooted in China's agricultural reforms succeeding by allowing direct purchases while maintaining the MSP
ie. They're criticising the failure to succeed in the direct purchase policy change, implying failure of the Indian government to do a bit of give to maintain people's livelihood

If the Indian government system was properly Democratic per the new Chinese whitepaper that's been in the news this would have been within its capacity to succeed with

How likely is dystopia, compared to utopia or a middle of the road scenario? IMO a pure dystopia isn't that likely and fictional dystopias and more like political commentaries on the present, cyberpunk was a commentary on 80s/90s neoliberalism and Reaganism, a future that never really came to be. A fictional dystopia, doomer-communism is more like revolutionary agitprop of what capitalism would eventually lead to if not stopped.

In reality it won't be socialism or barbarism in the near future but a sort of half-barbarism where capitalism must be modified heavily to cope with its own internal contradictions.

We already live in one wake up!!!


We already live in a dystopia.


Dystopia can happen should capitalists only care for themselves and their inner circles, not the community as a whole. Imagine being told that helping community is… LE BAD! and sustaining only yourself and your inner circle should you become rich is… LE GOOD! If people keep living lives of luxuries while 99% of the world still suffers from exploitation, oppression, and poverty, dystopia can be reachable only within a span of 50 years.


Shut up, doomers. We can fix it.

What happens when a religious rule contradicts a rule of Communism?

Christianity advocates for paying taxes and submission to a state, even as a slave, regardless of what the states does or is. It’s inherently anti-Revolutionary.

Judaism has xenophobic rules and advocates for racially discriminatory economics, usury, ethnic landlord monopolies, and gender/ethnic apartheid.

Islam advocates ethnic and gender apartheid.

So what happens when a religious rule contradicts a state rule? Do you ban the religion? Does Communism recognize religion as a separate thing, or see it as a rival ideology and legal system?

So many awful opinions are present in this thread. Organised religion is clearly against socialism and mediaeval and early modern communists existed in spite of it not because of it. Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao all agree that religion is against proletarian interests, and religion is in general highly regressive and reactionary. Of course, different religions express different classes, with, for example, catholocism representing feudalism and puritanism representing capitalism. Only non organised religions without heirarchy, such as quakers or spiritualists for example, can possibly be seen to be in the interests of the working class, and so I personally see them as acceptable in socialist society as long as they don't push dangerously anti scientific narratives.

It seems to me that pro religion reactionary 'socialists' seen in this thread mainly exist on the internet. The people who I organise with spit on the name of god if it is ever mentioned. A real Marxist is in favour of science and progress rather than fundementally reactionary institutions like organised religion. When we live in a communist society people will look back and laugh and cry for people enslaved by religion.


Christianity is somewhat similar to vulgar communism in its millenarianism


>Isn't there some Buddhist groups in Asia that attack people
Lol.. yes? You are thinking of armies, anon. 'Muh peaceful Buddhists' is a meme.


No, religion is not compatible with communism.
It makes me laugh when communists defend religion when even workers who aren't communist that I work with scorn religion.


Religions are internally diverse, so it's meaningless to discuss whether some religions are compatible with communism or not. Some variations of Buddhism may be more compatible with communism than others, that applies to other religions like Christianity, or Islam.

Allegedly they've been apprehended.

so says news articles


His sign in his the pic of him just says "stop killing black people" what does not wanting the police to kill people when they could just arrest them like George Floyd, etc. (or sometimes when they just kill people doing nothing wrong)?


Ironically this'll also benefit the leftists and patriotic bourgeoise there, because they can use this to show comprador inclined elements, government, and general people that the imperialists cannot be reasoned with. It's why the dotard's bluster, tariffs, and sanctions were said to be gifts in disguise, a it gave a boon to the "construction of the nation", so the joke goes. The imperial core underestimates the ability of the other poorer nations to develop advanced technology even when deprived of "access" to technology transfer, as the examples of the DPRK and Iran indicate.

Nincs semmi baj, csak érdekességként mutattam a videót. A benne szereplő férfi elméletileg egy bizonyos "MSZP"-nek volt a tagja. A magyar történészszakma máig tanácstalan, hogy vajon mi is lehet a szervezet valódi mivolta. Annyi biztos, hogy számos írásos emlékben feltűnik. A két legelfogadottabb elmélet közül az első szerint egy "rendszerváltás" nevű, a magyar történelem igen nehéz és kaotikus időszakában emelkedett ki mint az egyedüli bűnszövetkezet ami az illegális használtkondom piacot uralja. A másik elmélet szerint ez egy a fiatalok által szívesen látogatott a Paksi Atomerőműből származó radioaktív hulladék gyűjtögető-cserélgető szabadidős klub volt.


Anon hogy szavaz(na)?

>Támogatja-e Ön, hogy kiskorú gyermekeknek köznevelési intézményben a szülő hozzájárulása nélkül szexuális irányultságokat bemutató foglalkozást tartsanak?;

Nekünk anno általánosban "szülői beleegyezés nélkül" volt szexuális felvilágosítás óra, akárcsak "szülői beleegyezés nélkül" tartottak matekot is. Nem véletlenül csempészik be ezt a manipulatív részletet. Ha meg így is, úgy is van szexuális felvilágosítás, hát a faszért ne legyen benne szó nem-heteró dolgoról, ha minden országban jelenlévő kisebbségről van szó. Emléxem, h amikor én voltam kölök és sex ed. óra jött, én már előtte olvasgattam a témában, és amikor a legvégén kérdéseknek adott teret a tanci, én kérdeztem meg, hogy a homok szexuálisokkal amúgy meg mi van? (Heteró vagyok, csak furcsálltam, hogy kimaradt az egész.) A tanci azt válaszolta, hogy "Ha valakinek ilyen kérdése van, azt ne az osztály előtt tegye fel, hanem személyesen." Fasza. Szóval: TÁMOGATOM.

>Támogatja-e Ön, hogy kiskorú gyermekek számára nemi átalakító kezeléseket népszerűsítsenek?;

Az előbbiben szerepelnie kellene a transzokról való oktatás is, ha pedig "népszerűsítés" alatt NGO-zást értenek, vagy nyugati modellre hajazóan gyerekeknek hormonterápiát, akkor NEM TÁMOGATOM.

>Támogatja-e Ön, hogy kiskorú gyermekeknek fejlődésüket befolyásoló szexuális médiatartalmakat korlátozás nélkül mutassanak be?;

Ugye ez is a keresztény prüdéria idegszálait pengető módon lett feltéve. A probléma az, hogy a gyerekek szülői felügyelet nélkül fogyasztanak média tartalmat, nem pedig az, hogy ezek a médiatartalmak elérhetőek – mert a kölök úgy is hozzájuk fér, ha a szülők tabusítják. Ez tipikus álprobléma generálás: a valódi probléma az, hogy a szülőknek alig van idejük a gyerekeikkel lenni, őket nevelni (kritikus médiafogyasztásra IS). A kor-karikák meg úgy is ott lesznek a TV-n, tehát hülyeség az egész. NEM IXELEK

>Támogatja-e Ön, hogy kiskorú gyermekeknek a nem megváltoztatását bemutató médiatartalmakat jelenítsenek meg?

TÁMOGATOM. Nézze csak meg a gyerek hogy néz ki egy orvosi faszműtét és pinásítás, vagy fordítva. Ez is ugye a konzervatív és beszari ideológiára épít, hogy az emberek azért csinálnak "rossz" dolgoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

They literally had a billionaire mogul make money off of war and praise it and he got out Scot free with no real consequences. Realistic in it's absurdity but the way the show played it off is that Varrick is the good guy lol.

>As a child his parents were members of the Great Khans living in Bitter Springs. His father was a sadistic murderer with an alcohol problem who used to take Bitter-Root out shooting members of the NCR, military personnel and civilians alike, since the age of three, later laughing with his fellow drug addicts about the killings. Bitter-Root's mother was an insipid person whose only useful quality to the group seemed to be her being, to quote Bitter-Root's father, "a smokin' hot piece of ass," attempting unsuccessfully to sell her son into slavery on numerous occasions in exchange for jet. He loathed his parents and the upbringing he received.[6]
wow the Indian allegory really fits with the Khans, this had to be intentional


No shit?


Sorry, that was a bit rude. But the native allegory with the NCR versus tribals is incredibly obvious.


I knew that already, I'm taking about the negative aspects, did they have to add in the alcoholism and drug addiction

Profit, meth, and /x/ bread and circus shit. Should they release all data to the public, they will then be satiated by these constant bullshit. However, we can capitalize on this fact and EMBRACE POSADISM

Why are Americans so ignorant about the history of communism in their own country?

Watching all these history lectures about the CPUSA, IWW, etc. is bewildering. Why the fuck was I not taught about any of this in high school? Why was the “threat” of communism portrayed as something irrational and the Red Scares came out of nowhere when in fact communists were numerous in America and were extremely dedicated? Or the fact that the communists were the only ones fighting for Black people in the 1920s and 30s when most white Americans didn’t even see Black people as human?

I feel seriously cheated.

Joke’s on the government; CPUSA was always Trot-leaning.


This is a joke right?


Sakai needs to be thrown in the trash for deliberately quoting out-of-context and misrepresenting facts.




A few thoughts. Personally, I think most of these debates are pretty boring because they assume the CPUSA could've taken power in the United States if it had "done what I believe in" or whatever, when the reality might be that it was just never going to happen no matter what the party did. It's uncomfortable for people to accept that you could do everything *right* and *still* lose. That doesn't rule victory out forever and in the future, since one can't predict the future, but so much of what happens in history is like a series of car crashes or accidents. Historical forces are never linear, and events that seem predetermined now were often hardly predicted when they happened. What does happen is that people explain and interpret the past in such ways to meet the political needs of the moment (or what they believe the political needs require).

I've boosted this before, but the Chinese show "Minning Town" is great because it's like "mass line: the show." But it doesn't depict the work of a CPC cadre in a rural village doing poverty alleviation as glamorous. It depicts his job as fucking difficult and hard and it sucks. And every time they make some progress, they immediately get hit with another problem. "Two steps forward, one step back" is the theme of the show. Progress is tortuous: not a straight line. I think this video visualizes it in a different way.

One problem for "patriotic American socialists" is that the foundations of the American national identity is built on a creed. Americanism is the American system itself, the Constitution, and what are a set of fundamentally liberal values discrete from the paradigm of blood, soil, culture, and even language (although English is the dominant one). That's because the United States, as a country of immigrants, grew up by assimilating many different nationalities and cultures over its history so it needed a different way of binding people together. So, in this paradigm, to disavow the American political system is to disavow Americanism – it means being anti-American. To be a "patriotic American communist" doesn't make any sense.

Another thing about the United States is that it has steadily grown larger and more powerful for a very long period of time. America has always "been on the rise" in the world. Americans like to believe theirPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Does Marx's personality and life story have any bearing on modern Marxist movement? Obviously Marx has had a lot of writing done on him, he's a pretty important guy, and a lot of it is really silly and bad. Kengor's Marx and the Devil comes to mind particularly as a silly exaggeration of the man's character based on some of young Karl's poetry and some of his "le edgy atheist" quotes, the Mephistopheles one comes to mind. Of course there are other silly things like: "BEARDMAN NEVER HAD JORB", assuming one doesn't consider journalism a job, one would have to open this critique up to all academics, which is obviously troubling for the "Vons" that make up the Austrian School.

Of course if you peruse the internet you'll find youtube ads that are unironically 40min videos about "Karl Marx's darkest secrets" where a bunch of faggots sit around reading the Marx wiki or something like that and mounting their respective high horses. I've of course heard rumors that Marx fathered a bastard on his maid, I'm curious to learn about this because I'm yet to see a single source or origin of this idea.

Most moral critiques of Marx as a person of principle is either the poverty that he allowed his family to endure (which definitely had nothing to do with his constantly being banned from various states) or his vitriol in attacking his political rivals. Reading Marx's words to other internationale members or academics who challenged him are certainly entertaining, Marx had a supreme gift for making even eloquent men look like complete ass-up retards. As for his poverty, this is the origin perhaps of most of Marx's rumors, that he was a bad father and a worse husband, what do you anons think?

Was Marx a noble guy who endured poverty and allowed his family to do the same because he so believed in the truth of his work? Or was a brilliant autist who assaulted people he could have otherwise worked with, while neglecting his own family and surviving off of his best friend's generosity? And does it actually matter or does Marx's work stand apart from the man?

>As for his poverty, this is the origin perhaps of most of Marx's rumors, that he was a bad father and a worse husband, what do you anons think?
His whole family, by both their own and by others' accounts, worshipped him. He did live in self-imposed poverty by refusing to compromise his political views in his journalism but his family knew and respected that. I remember reading somewhere that the 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte was partially written while Karl's children played horsey on his back which is an amusing mental image.

As for the "worse husband" part, I think it's been well demonstrated by now that Karl's alleged extramarital affair did not take place. The sole evidence for it was an alleged deathbed confession by Engels to his caretaker, Louise Kautsky. At the time, just about everybody who knew Karl personally did not believe the allegation. Some have tried to retroactively project the affair back into his correspondence, but I think Terrell Carver has well proven that these were actually references to political disputes (split in the German emigre group, etc.) See here: https://www.marxists.org/subject/marxmyths/terrell-carver/article.htm

>I like that he was a neckbearded quasi-NEET who shot the shit with Engels and routinely dunked on his peers.
Marx was neckbearded but he was far from a NEET. He was closely involved in political emigre circles and participated in socialist journalism and activism. Sometimes he would let political exiles sleep in his house until they could find secure lodging. Wilhelm Liebknecht was one of them. Marx's children couldn't pronounce his name, so they called him "library".

Saul Alinsky had nothing to do with "cultural Marxism" or anything Marxist for that matter. Guy was a liberal at most.

Wikipedia is such a joke - as long as people want to push their own political agenda their policies are useless.


Many people died indeed, it was a terrible civil war. There was no genocide with 2 million dead though.


Ok, don't call it a genocide - I personally never cared for the term. Millions did die though, some through murder others through forced relocation (forcing the sick and elderly out of their homes to march out of the city will do that) and others by being worked too hard without enough food or clean water.


Prove it, you shithead. And you are not allowed to use glowed sources.


I really like this image but "blacks" needs to be changed to "black people" or something. Not posting because I care or anything. But it's hard to post an image like this in liberal spaces because I know some dumbass will freak out over the semantics.



It seems like there is a vast misconception among certain group of posters probably hispanic americans tjat believe the Zapatistas is a revolutionary force, why is this? What are zapatistas doing that you guys consider to be revolutionary, since when is selling commodities (coffee) and going on vacation to europe considered revolutionary?
Is the revolutionary struggle so doomed you are now getting excited over Prodhonian-tier capitalism?

Good job, now read the last sentence in the OP


They’re mostly just an indigenous rights movement, which is not a bad thing per se, but it does severely limit any kind of revolutionary potential they might have.


Yeah, and it makes literally no difference. The first aim of a revolutionary movement is to seize state power on behalf of the revolutionary classes. The Zapatistas have done this, and so they are revolutionary by definition, even if further progress in the construction of socialism is halted by difficult circumstances. What's next, you're going to say that the USSR was not revolutionary because they didn't abolish capital accumulation?

If we say "there is no ethical consumption under capitalism" where does that leave ethics? Does this not free us to do anything with the excuse "there are no ethical choices". Consume the fruits of slave labor, or fair labor, it's all unethical so who cares. Buy from Amazon instead of your local exploiter, because they're both exploiters.

>I'm not going to trust a fucking country that has laws where you need to pay medical bills if you injure someone, but if you kill someone, you need to pay fees that end up being lower than the bills racked up by most injury
What exactly does this have to do with them being trustworthy or not? Also, this is false. If you are proven to have actually purposefully killed someone, the punishment is literally life imprisonment or execution. The only cases where the fines have been lower were when people got off due to their lawyers successfully arguing that it was an accident.


>I've noticed rightards love that picture of crying PLA soldiers, while in fact they were singing a song wishing farewell to their families while heading out on a deployment.
Its simple than that. Rughtists are far, far, far to autistic, western and self concious to understand public displays of emotion. Rights are retarded so think anything they dont understand is automatically wrong and therefore an own.
