/mrg/ Muslim Resistance General - Gaddafi's Ghost EditionDiscussion about the Muslim/Arab world, MENA, and it's intersection with the Capitalist/Colonialist west. Muslim resistance in the nations of the West as well. I'm not a Muslim but I've been studying it for years and have an appreciation for it and many of it's 20th and 21st century figures have taken a great deal of their inspiration from Communist thought. I'm studying Arabic at university and would love it if there was a Muslim imageboard but I don't know of such a thing.

History of workYouTube historian destroys the myth that capitalism has made people work less hours that pre-industrial societies. Why is this myth perpetuated? Anthropology has demosntarted that humans have worked for most of our history in bursts. (8 hours a day but 2 hours the next day). The mean is 4 to 6 hours per week. I think it is the best time to push for 6 or 5 hour workdays. Thoughts?
Why don't leftists care about the potential second Armenian Genocide?Since losing the 2020 Artsakh war to Azerbaijan, the Armenian nation has faced an intense existential crisis over its very existence. Azerbaijan was able to win because Israel sold it advanced weaponry that it used to flatten the Artsakh forces. Since the end of the war, Azerbaijan has been blockading what's left of the Artsakh Republic, and threatening to invade Armenia proper. The ultimate goal of Turkey and Azerbaijan is to take the Zangzeur Corridor from Armenia, thereby connecting Turkey to Azerbaijan to Central Asia. This was the exact same goal the Turks had in 1915, to wipe out the Armenians and create a Greater Turan.
Marxism curriculumHey comrades. College senior here. I’ve often been told that in order to be a good Marxist one must simultaneously be a good philosopher, good economist, good psychologist, and good historian.
Mass production kills off spectaclesI’ve been thinking about advertising under capitalism and how much of society today revolves around constant consumption on goods alongside services that function as commodities and spectacles. However I’ve noticed a trend, one that commonly occurs in industrialized states where spectacles should have the most influence. An inverse relationship can be seen between the industriousness of a settlement with respect to how many spectacles occupy the minds of its civilians. Just take a walk in a bigger city and compare the density of advertising to a sparse small town, or how much less eye catching modern clothing is despite how unprofessional most of it is. Even by historical standards the vast majority of modern clothing is on par or even as visually boring as peasant attire in the Middle Ages. Commodities themselves as products are slowly losing their visual intrigue, take cars. Modern cars thanks to global pushes towards mass standardization have seen centralization in their design and aspects of their visuals become consolidated to the point where the distinction between one car and another is their immediate function and lifespan. Another are the modern day homes and stores built today, younger generations will grow up seeing less or even no street vendors, small shops with bright and colourful logos but rather similarly designed blocks of concrete and brick meant to efficiently house and support as many small businesses in smaller amounts of space. Many in my city are hard to distinguish from one another without direct viewership of the logos representing each company. I can keep going on about how the increased infrastructural and industrial development of the planet had led to visual homogeneity of commodities, thus ending critical aspects of spectacle society, but what’s important is to recognize that this is even a trend. What’s the capitalist world gonna look like now that were in its final years? Will fascism be even more boring and repetitive before a socialist revolution towards mass standardization of all that’s produced? Will media be the only spectacle left in a homogenizing planet?

Kurdistan GeneralThis will be the official for all things pertaining to the Kurdish plight and struggle against the imperialistic forces of Iran, Türkiye and Syria. I know Rojava and YPG are a touchy subject for some communists, but in no way is it a good idea to be against them. If we can manage to establish an independent Kurdistan, it will be the sole Marxist nation in the Middle East and that only bodes good things for the region long-term.

Sonic the HedgehogI have a weird fascination with this franchise, particularly its fans. How do they remain so loyal when there's been maybe one or two good games in the last two decades in a sea of average-to-terrible garbage released year after year? How did Sega manage to take all the wrong lessons away from their colossal fuckups of the mid-late 2000s?

Do reserve armies actually do anything to harm workers?I know this question sounds redundant but it’s one I found rather important because of the implications of having them, paired with labour division. I find equating reserve armies as harming the prospects of workers the same as using AI as a threat to people’s employment, it’s a contextual threat not a guaranteed one.

Does anyone know anything about South Yemen?It seems to be horribly understudied. But they BTFO the British in a guerilla war and were the only Marxist Arab state. America labeled them a "sponsor of terrorism" so they must have been doing something right. I don't much about them otherwise. Are the southern separatists in Yemen today, who want to recreate South Yemen, communists or not?

What is the correct position on Kosovo?Brief blogpost before I get into the meat of things. I am a Serb living in Serbia and practically everywhere I look, everyone from far-right neonazis to the handful of communists, even a significant number of liberals, is against the independence of Kosovo. A recent incident has sparked a wave of what I could describe as schizophrenia.

How to Make School Admin Afraid They're Going to Be Held Accountable?Hello, I'm an activist in several somewhat influential advocacy groups and other things, including environmental, Native Land related, and Palestinian related groups. I'm a semi-influencer, and I've been having a problem with my school, so much so that I'm making it my area of focus and leveraging all the things I can and gathering other motivated students to help. I had some unique things happen to me, but I'm a top student now so I've been speaking in front of audiences of hundreds of people for the last 2 years, and now I've even been invited to be a guest on a show to talk about it and college in general, in the topic of the student debt crisis, and I want some good input how to threaten these administrators to start taking me seriously. I've been emailing them back and forth for months very cordially, but it hasn't worked, so now I'm transitioning the carrot to the stick. I plan to tell them about the upcoming T.V. appearance and how I won't be saying any names the 1st time, then I will email them the clip of me actually on T.V. talking about the way the school takes advantage of students, they will really realize "holy shit, he's serious about this."

Was the Soviet Union a failure?Was the Soviet Union a failure? I mean it failed to establish a communist society and completely collapsed in on itself. And before you mention Gorby and accuse him being the reason the union fell apart, for him to do that he would have needed massive dictorial powers, which if had that power shows a failure of the state to be a workers run one, or the entire bureaucracy was a corrupt bloated entity. And what can be done in the future to prevent this from happening?

Opinons on Gabriel Boric?As a Chilean I am immensely disappointed with how he has run the country, he has completed none of his promises including the most important one of rewriting the fascist constitution of Pinochet and now the people who are supposed to rewrite the constitution as now all fascists due to his many blunders. I want to be hopeful that this can be turned around so we can at least see some social reform or socialist policies enacted but it seems that this is a far dream now. I am hoping that someone else here from Chile is optimistic

Anti-imperialist progress in West AfricaLast month big news came from Niger. The military announced it had seized power and arrested the ProFrench President Mohamed Bazoum. The Constitution has been suspended and power transferred to a military junta. This was caused by increased unrest in the country, caused by the failure of the government to fight the ISIS insurgency and the endemic poverty that has gripped the country since independence from France.
I don’t like these guysI’m worried about this stupid ass country because I live here and am too poor to move out. Knowing these twats are gaining any kind of influence over the situation here only has me even more shaky considering I went out of my way to see what they advocate for and avoided anything related to their leader so I could see what they actually do versus what they advertised. Unfortunately my suspicions were correct and they’re just another shitty corrupt neoliberal party advocating for socialist policies they’ll never move forward with to appease millionaires and trick wagecucks like me into thinking things are ever gonna get better.
Multipolarism is left-communism>The positions of Bordiga on the war seemed clear from an internationalist point of view, what we can judge by some testimonies of the time. At the beginning of the years 1940, Bordiga had affirmed, discussing with the socialist lawyer Mario Paone, that the enemy for the proletariat was always capitalism, in particular its most developed form, the North-American Capitalism: "Dear Paone, remember that Fascism and Nazism are the completely contingent and transitory forms of capitalist and bourgeois conservation, and that the enemy who is to be beaten is always the American imperialism."
