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

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

Israel-Palestine escalationVery real chance of things going off tomorrow as the IDF raided Jenin this morning and killed 10 people and injured double that after firing an anti-tank missile into a building. PA has rescinded security cooperation (https://twitter.com/MairavZ/status/1618649365534621696), which has been in place since Oslo in the 1990s. Tomorrow is also a friday which means rallies after mosque prayers, probably including a strike (they had one today but it appears there was little catch-on due to the fact the raid was this morning).
From Democracy to SocialismHas any democratic state ever preceded a socialist state?
Can someone explain what he meant by this?>Get down to business, all of you! You will have capitalists beside you, including foreign capitalists, concessionaires and leaseholders. They will squeeze profits out of you amounting to hundreds per cent; they will enrich themselves, operating alongside of you. Let them. Meanwhile you will learn from them the business of running the economy, and only when you do that will you be able to build up a communist republic. Since we must necessarily learn quickly, any slackness in this respect is a serious crime. And we must undergo this training, this severe, stern and sometimes even cruel training, because we have no other way out.
Snap point turningI was goofing off with oblivion ds2 Skyrim and some other older games and after watching maulers video on ds2 as a game I realized snap point turning a bug that existed was ds2 was actually extremely common to find in a shitload of older games in general including gta. Snap pointturning to someone unfamiliar with this concept is the instance where a 3d game has restricted areas a character can actually turn in relative to the cameras angle ingame that ultimately make moving that character visibly infuriating to pull off and janky

individualism and collectivismits normal for people to be empathetic and collectivistic and be greedy and individualistic too. society cannot achieve with both collectivism sticks and creates societies and individualism can breed any sort of opportunities and chaos and with chaos forces us to adapt and progress in order to escape chaos
Alternatives to labor vouchersWhat exactly is the alternative to labor vouchers for communism? Assuming we are doing "real communism" not partial socialism with commodity production. I mean a fully communist society - there are some leftcoms and others who criticize the labor voucher model, but the only alternative I can see is a quasi form of "barracks communism" or monastic communism where all consumption is planned in advance.

Are Marxist-Leninists the new left-communists?Hear me out. The Soviet Union classified two different kinds of socialist republics: the soviet socialist republic, and the people's republics of East Asia and Eastern Europe. The difference was, from what I understand, that the leading party in the PR's were People's or Unified Fronts, while the SSR had the Communist Party.
Fixed territorial administration for the Soviet UnionThis would've prevented the disintegration of the country. Federations (particularly, federations trying to split the country apart based on ethnic and/or cultural grounds) are dumb as shit, they only exacerbate the problem they are trying to fix. When I look at the map of federations around the world, I see at least half of them collapsing in the future, or being at risk of collapsing.

Give me one reason to support chinaChina has markets, isn't socialist, let alone communist, they're just LARPing as gommie because thats how they stay in power. We've had east asian posters here who admit viet/china aint gommie and its actually just nationalism. So if you're going to be a nationalist for a capitalist country, why not be nationalist for your own? Is there any fucking reason besides reflexive self loathing, contrarianism and aesthetics that I should become a weirdo dengist and support China over my own nation?
Denpa music threadDenpa(電波) is a Japanese subculture characterized by bizarre and eerie themes. It originally began as a derogative term for mentally deranged behavior, but over the 1990s was adapted by otaku into their culture. In part, through artistic expression within manga, anime and visual novels, and also separately as a genre of cute and quirky music.

The axis of resistance is the targetThis declared war has greater dimensions than Ukraine, and its goal is to qualify Russia to lead the world and to lead the axis of resistance and to rehabilitate Putin, who has a black history of seizing power, liquidating his opponents, violating the rights of the Russians, and trading power with Medvedev for decades, qualifying him to lead the axis of resistance. Which includes Iran, the Islamic resistance, the Palestinian and the Yemeni as well.. This is how the West hopes that Putin will become qualified to lead the peoples with the right judges. And to reproduce the old polarization with the Soviet Union, which was somewhat comfortable and did not threaten Israel in terms of existence as the resistance threatens Israel. If this situation indicates anything, it indicates that the real conflict exists, even if it is not visible, between Russia and the axis of resistance over the leadership of the peoples, and not between the United States and Russia. Putin is a creation of the West, not a representative of the Russian people. And now his view of Dugin has entered the line, and the goal of assassinating his daughter may be to float his Eurasian project, which is the new incubator of Israel.
Sekiro is one of the only arpgs that got blocking rightThe purpose of blocking in most fighting games is to give players a defensive option so they aren’t discouraged from disengaging from conflict for the sake of trying to avoid an attack. In most aroma or just action games in general this basic concept of attacking is often overlooked and what ends up happening is blocking as a mechanic becomes completely useless which results in players running around waiting for bosses or enemies to throw out some basically unpunishable attack first and then decide to do anything after waiting for several seconds for the enemy to finish their trillion hit combo or whatever.

Why do some leftists like NEETcha?Everything I've seen of his pop up isn't very inspiring or even that enlightening. It's nearly poetry in waxing romantically about how everyone is dumb and we need a new aristocracy. That's my impression but I haven't read anything of his directly (why would I want to?). I know the Nazis found a lot of inspiration in his writings.
