Today is election day after 4 miserable years during which the worst elite in the world worked 24/7 to keep the worst leader in the world in power. 50% plus one of valid votes means no run-off election, and Lula might actually pull this off this time.

Political Implications of AI

Now that AI is fast approaching human level competency in many domains, what happens next? I think we are soon getting past the point where these technologies are just curiosities and novelties. They will soon reach a point where they will start to reshape society.

To me it's clear that it will change the nature of economic production, particularly of media artifacts. If you see pic rel , this img2img technology can convert simple childlike MS paint drawings into images that resemble the level of quality of a fairly skilled human artist's output. Other models can generate nearly photorealistic images. So anyone with even the most basic capacities for drawing could potentially scaffold and generate automated images. Soon, I am sure, this will expand into other domains of text, video, and know knows what else.

Years ago when I was reading about the 4th Industrial Revolution, experts believed that it would mostly be rote, repetitious work that would be automated . In an unexpected turn, art and media production seem to be on the chopping block.

What concerns me more is how AI content generation will abused for misinformation, psyops, and other glowie mind-fuckery . The possibilities are endless.

As a counterpoint, how might these tools be used for righteous causes?

Is leftypol going to join with maga?

It seems as if the consensus on /ukraine/ is to entertain anti-nato right-wingers. I have seen what happened to redscarepodcast and stupidpol and yet it seems as if leftypol wants to go down the same path. I don't know how I would be able to deal with such a thing, having to choose between being tugged around by democrats and MSM or the peter thiel network and yet despite that nobody seems to care. If leftypol chooses to become allies with magacommunism and to try to go after the right then I will do so even though I think it's cringe. There is simply no time or meaning to be found in the western left now as they are too far gone and yet I feel sick every moment for considering this because the right will absolutely fuck us if they get the chance.

/Leftybritpol/ RIP Chris Kaba, Fuck the King

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_III

>Charles III (Charles Philip Arthur George; born 14 November 1948) is King of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms.[fn 3] He acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022[fn 4] upon the death of his mother, Elizabeth II. As Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay from 1952 to his accession, he was the oldest and the longest-serving heir apparent in British history,[2] and the longest-serving Prince of Wales, having held the title from 26 July 1958 until his accession.[3][fn 5]


>Charles was born in Buckingham Palace, the first child of his mother and Philip, Duke of Edinburgh; he was the first grandchild of King George VI and his consort, Queen Elizabeth. He was educated at Cheam and Gordonstoun schools, both of which his father attended as a child. He later spent a year at the Timbertop campus of Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, Australia. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Cambridge, Charles served in the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy from 1971 to 1976. In 1981, he married Lady Diana Spencer, with whom he had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. In 1996, the couple divorced after they had each engaged in well-publicised extramarital affairs. Diana died as a result of a car crash in Paris the following year. In 2005, Charles married his long-time partner, Camilla Parker Bowles.


>As Prince of Wales, Charles undertook official duties on behalf of Elizabeth II. He founded the youth charity the Prince's Trust in 1976, sponsors the Prince's Charities, and is a patron, president, or a member of over 400 other charities and organisations. He has advocated for the conservation of historic buildings and the importance of architecture in society.[4][5][6] A critic of modernist architecture, Charles worked on the creation of Poundbury, an experimental new town based on his architectural tastes. He is also an author or co-author of a number of books.


>An environmentalist, Charles supported organic farming and action to prevent climate change during his time as the manager of the Duchy of Cornwall estates, earning him awards and recognition from environmental groups.[7][8][9][10] He is also a prominent critic of the adoption of genetically modified food.[11][12] Charles's support for homeopathy has been the subject of criticism.[13][14] The conduct of his charity, the Prince's Foundation has also attracted criticism, following allegations concerning the offering of British citizenship to donors and is the subject to an ongoing Metropolitan Police investigation into cash-for-honours allegations.[15][16]


https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/09/police-watchdog-launches-homicide-investigation-into-met-shooting-of-chris-kaba

>The police watchdog has launched a homicide investigation into the fatal shooting of Chris Kaba by armed Metropolitan police officers in south London.


>The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said this followed its review of the evidence gathered so far after the incident in Streatham Hill on Monday night.


>The 24-year-old was driving a car which was first rammed before being boxed in by police. He was killed by a single shot that entered through the driver’s side of the windscreen of the Audi.


>The watchdog has previously confirmed that no gun was found in the vehicle. It has now emerged that the car, which was flagged as being linked to a firearms incident days earlier, was not owned by Kaba.


>“Mr Kaba died after a single shot was fired by an MPS officer from the specialist firearms command while police attempted to stop and contain the vehicle he was driving,” the IOPC said.


>“This followed the activation of an automatic number plate recognition camera which indicated the vehicle was linked to a firearms incident in previous days. The vehicle Mr Kaba was driving was not registered to him.”


>The watchdog said its investigation was continuing and added: “As this is now a criminal investigation, we are limited in what further information we can provide.


>“The launch of a criminal investigation does not mean that criminal charges will necessarily follow.”


>It said: “We have notified Mr Kaba’s family of this latest development. We continue to ask that people avoid speculating about this incident out of respect for Mr Kaba’s family and for everyone else affected.”


>The family had already called for the officers to be placed under criminal investigation by the IOPC. In a statement on Wednesday, they said: “The family of Chris Kaba seek a homicide investigation into his death from the outset.


>“We have today told the IOPC of that demand and that we do not want any delay as has happened in other fatal shootings – otherwise we and the wider public can have no confidence that the police will be held to account.


>“We are devastated; we need answers and we need accountability. We are worried that if Chris had not been Black, he would have been arrested on Monday evening and not had his life cut short.”


>The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said on Friday night: “My heartfelt sympathies remain with Chris Kaba’s family, friends and loved ones, who are having to come to terms with a young life cut short.


>“I fully understand the grave concerns and impact of Chris’s death on Black Londoners across our city and the anger, pain and fear it has caused – as well as the desire for justice and change.


>“I appreciate that there are many unanswered questions and I want to reassure all of London’s communities that I will continue to push for these to be answered.”


>Met assistant commissioner Amanda Pearson said: “My thoughts and sympathies remain with Mr Kaba’s friends and family with this news. I also know how concerned our communities are and how they will also be affected by this significant update. We share their concern.


>“The Met is co-operating fully as the IOPC work to independently establish the full circumstances surrounding the shooting.”


>The force said the officer involved was not currently on operational duties due to the formal post-incident process, and a senior officer would carefully consider their work status.


>Pearson added: “I absolutely understand that this shooting is a matter of grave concern, particularly for our black communities.


>“I also know what a difficult and often dangerous job firearms officers in particular do every day to try to protect the public. They understand and expect that on the very rare occasions they discharge their weapons they will face intense scrutiny. I don’t underestimate the impact on them of this development.


>“I’d urge the public to allow the IOPC the time and space needed to progress the investigation.”

A single European state with any overseas colonized territories of former countries given independence would be Engels-pilled, solve the stupid national questions, and there's no real reason not to. It is very obvious hubris to give every tiny nationality its own sovereign state even though the total population of Europe is roughly half (half!!!) that of India's, and India can make it work already. There is already a central legislature across most of the territory in the form of the EU parliament, even.

The axis of resistance is the target

This 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.

If you want to look sane and not like a bunch of cosplaying morons then just wear normal clothes, maybe one tier above like business casual or a suit if you really must. Stop using hammer and sickle since that represented an alliance between the peasants, a class which no longer exists, esp. in the west, and the industrial workers.

Honestly communists should just ditch the red flags, tankie/ussr/china aesthetics and such and just go extreme normcore but still take marxist positions on shit.

Unironically the most important Socialist theorist since Lenin. Fact.
Even Rightoid economists who went into his works thinking they could take it down admit that his arguments and theory are flawless.
Don't understand why he's on the periphery of the Socialist movement today, he should at least be as popular as Zizek and Varoufakis.

Is there a way to organize the homeless? Currently they are the most oppressed stratum of the working class anywhere in the world and so they seem to have the most revolutionary potential out of everyone else, also since they aren't bombarded with reactionary propaganda all day everyday due to not having regular access to the internet except for the most basic functions they are probably also very receptive to communism and class consciousness.

>b-b-b-b-bbut they are le lumpens

Not all of them, in fact a lot of homeless people still have regular jobs but due to factors like debt or ridiculous housing prices they don't have access to housing. And judging by the coming crisis most of us will be homeless in a couple years so I don't want some stuck up fag to call me a lumpen just because I don't have somewhere to sleep.

Has Marxism-Leninism-Maoism stagnated?

With the Communist Party of the Philippines already reaching half a century of continued revolutionary struggle, and other groups like the Naxalites at their 55th year of revolution, it seems to me as if these movements have essentially failed to capitalize on working class struggles on a broad scale, and have nothing to show for their revolutions besides that they still continue to persist. Is this evidence of MLM being unapplicable to the conditions in which they are currently being applied, or am i missing some external factor that is preventing these revolutions from succeeding completely and thoroughly?

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.

Lenin's Materialism and Empiro-Criticism

>Poincare is quoted to show that physics is in serious crisis. We can see how this crisis is leading to subjective idealist conclusions, leading Poincare to say that we impose onto nature concepts like space and time, and that whatever is not thought, is pure nothing.

>Lenin quotes Abel Rey who declares that this confusion, this crisis in science, has led many to conclude that science is simply a system of convenient symbols, referring to nothing but its own closed system of man-made signs. He then says that this means many will conclude the only path to knowledge we have left, is that of intuition of a mystical reality. This refers to the trend of irrationalism, which would become very powerful, even dominant, throughout 20th Century philosophy. The idea that ‘signs’ have superseded and even destroyed ‘the signified’ was very common to postmodernism, for example. Of course, all these viewpoints are subject to the same fatal flaw: if science is no more than convenient signs, what determines their degree of convenience?


>Lenin explains that advances in science do not explode materialism, because dialectical materialism does not hold that the hitherto recognised elements are immutable, but in fact holds that matter is inexhaustible, infinite, and thus our understanding of it is always developing. Hence, the crisis in science has thrown it into subjective idealism because of the mechanical materialism most scientists subscribed to.


>It is also worth highlighting Lenin’s brilliant points on the phrasemongering of such philosophers. Lenin aptly describes their terminology as a ‘dead scholastic appendage’. This is highly relevant to academia today, which is rife with trendy terms which add nothing to our understanding. It is a product of the cloistered and competitive nature of this petty bourgeois environment. The table produced by Haeckel, shown at the end of the chapter, demonstrating the ‘ghost in the machine’ of idealism also reveals the relationship between idealism and this industry of verbal jugglery that is academia. The point is, as Lenin says, that this demonstrates idealism creates ‘philosophical-artifices’, whereas materialism identifies the problems that need solving and provides a method for solving them. Because idealism discourages a rigorous, scientific approach to theoretical problems, it is the perfect outlook for professors who wish to invent ‘revolutionary’ theories, unhindered by the need to prove them, to sell new books.

Dreams and psychonauts

Let's talk about dreams interpretations and psychonaut experiences.

i used to not believe in that or at least that's what i said
in my religion my family is usually gifted the psychic ability
my mother can channel spirits tho i haven't heard about her experiences
i personally can predict the future with dreams
i often dream about stuff that will happen and it can be scary because it can be kinda cryptic and symbolic at times
but some other times can be explicit and accurate
just a year ago i predicted my cat's death
i also believe he was trying to say goodbye in the same dream.
i hadn't seen him in at least 2 weeks since he lived with my mother at the time
but the moment i had that dream, it seems around the same time he had know he was gonna die.
which is why the next day he also wanted to say goodbye to the rest of my family.
the next day he was taken to a veterinary for surgery because apparently he was hurt.
but halfway through the surgery he died.

on a side note i also predicted every house i ever lived in becoming a broken mess in the middle of the gentrification process as i started transitioning.

Is there a study of the state of the world?

"Marx thought that in order to
decide what should be done at a given historical moment, in a given country and under given
conditions, one must carefully study (with the help of the method of scientific communism) all
the specific features of the given situation (which is constantly changing) and the situation
existing not only within the given country itself, but in all the other countries of the world.
Marxism considers that only by such a study can the
…thinking representatives o£ the given class [acquire] the necessary knowledge, the
necessary experience—and, apart from all knowledge and experience—the necessary
political instinct for the quick and correct solution of intricate political problems. " Dialectical
Materialism The Theoretical Foundation
of Marxism-Leninism
V. Adoratsky

So, my communist brothers, are there studies, actual good ones (no SJW shit) about the current state of the world with a communist POV and with the use of the method of scientific communism? Id love to read it and learn so i know if there will be a revoltuion/ be a chance of. know in more detail.

The thing is, this study would then probably be outdated and if by university, if western anyways not good.
The great reset is a gigantic change that is going on right now, and to really understand the state of the world id need to study the pre great reset and the post great reset which is about to come…

Colombia's government agreed on Monday to modify a tax reform proposal under debate in congress and continue to allow oil and mining companies to deduct royalty payments from their taxes in the wake of a wave of industry criticism. The government has agreed to back continued royalty deductions in exchange for raising income taxes on extractive industries by 5% and increasing an export tax to 20% for oil and coal sold above certain threshold prices, Finance Minister Jose Antonio Ocampo told journalists.

US judge dismisses Mexico’s $10bn lawsuit against gun makers
A US judge has dismissed Mexico’s $10bn lawsuit that sought to hold US gun manufacturers responsible for facilitating the flood of weapons that are smuggled across the United States-Mexico border to drug cartels. In its August 2021 complaint, Mexico estimated that 2.2 percent of the nearly 40 million guns made annually in the United States are smuggled into Mexico, including as many as 597,000 guns made by defendants named in the lawsuit.

Peru proposes 'new approach' to mining to combat economic disparities, conflicts
Poor indigenous communities have increased their demand for greater benefits for the exploitation of resources, creating blockades on roads and mining areas several times this year. Torres's speech, at times applauded by mining executives, aims to calm down businessmen who have demanded a clearer reaction from the government to stop the protests.

So why did Marx think that the proletariat had anymore revolutionary potential than the peasantry? How was the proletariat at all special from the previous under-classes of history? if you look at the wagies of today, they're all either extremely passive and don't even bother to vote, let alone form unions or other apparatuses for their class interests; or they're outright reactionary and support stuff like the police, rightwing parties, etc. This has been pretty much the norm throughout all history where most of the serfs and slaves either outright supported the current system in their times keeping them in chains because they had some privileged position (ie they had their own serfs despite also being a serf, they were a pampered house slave, they managed/policed other slaves/serfs for better living conditions, etc.) or they were too apathetic to care about their surrounding situation.

It's not like the previous underclasses of history also didn't do revolution either, there was the sparticus rebellion, the german peasant wars, and the various maoist and third world revolutions which were all lead by mostly western-educated intellegesia rather than the educated. proletariat

I fail to see how the proletariat are anymore special compared to the previous servant classes throughout history.

Reading General

Hello leftypol, we noticed an under-appreciation for the theory that upholds our political ideologies: As such, we have decided to revive the reading sticky! This thread will be dedicated to the sharing, discussing, and general banter about various leftist thinkers, theories, and political outlooks.

But, other than that, we believe there are other important reads that must be addressed, especially, for beginners and those just now getting into leftism.

Don't forget to check out >>>/edu/ for more reading and discussion!

Critique of generalized production

How does socialism solve the problem of "it's cheaper to produce something than to fix it"? This problem appears inherent to generalized production. Simply put there is more labor involved in generalized production, ergo it is more efficient, whereas fixing things takes on the characteristics of pre-generalized production - that is a few laborers putting in a lot of effort for the end result.

I shouldn't have to explain this but the problem with "it's cheaper to produce something than to fix it" is that it creates immense waste.

Late Capitalism Simulator

Lately I’ve seen a huge influx of good games that try to update the outdated capitalist realist Cyberpunk genre to the current political and economic landscape. Stuff like Disco Elysium is getting more and more recognition they rightfully deserve for depicting the hopeless and bleak death of modern revolution. However they’re still have some semblance of hope like with Ghostrunner having the corporation being destroyed by a revolution in contrast to the sad oppression of the system.

Another great but obscure example is whatever the fuck Cruelty Squad is. It’s fully embraced the boring drug fueled dystopia aesthetic while delivering basically Deus Ex but without the stealth. Compared to the faux shell of a Cyberpunk game 2077 was (full of cyber but nothing about the societal implications of such technologies other than some edgy infantile “message” about “soul”), this game have everything and everyone be miserable using the cyber-enhancements. Space colonization and AI being pipe dreams. Corporations are not knowingly malicious but only apart of the rot of capitalism.

Karl Marx Theory

1. Reading Marxist theory can help people understand why certain things happen in society and how to change it. People should read Marxist theory because it can help them change their view of society and become more politically aware.
One reason why people should read Marxist theory is to understand why certain things happen in society. Many people feel that they don't know the full reason for certain things in society.

2. Reading Marxist theory can help people understand why systems fail and how to fix them. It can also explain why certain groups are oppressed and how to change that.

3. Reading Marxist theory helps people understand the underlying causes of social issues and how to fix them.
Another reason why people should read Marxist theory is to understand how to change society. Many people want to change society but don't know how.

4. Reading Marxist theory can help people understand why certain things happen and how to change them. It can also explain why certain groups are more successful than others and how to change that.

5. Reading Marxist theory helps people understand what they should change in society and how to do it. It's a helpful book for anyone who wants to improve society's current state.
However, not everyone agrees with this idea. Some people believe that reading Marxist theory is too complex to understand. They believe that reading such a large amount of information on a topic is too much for anyone to process easily. Even if you find some helpful information, the sheer amount of information is overwhelming.

6. Some people believe that reading Marxist theory is only useful if you already agree with it. They believe that reading Marxist theory will only help you if you already agree with its ideas. If you don't already agree with Marx's ideas, reading his work won't change your views. In fact, you may become even more entrenched in your current beliefs if you're unable to defend your views against his arguments.

7. Reading Marxist theory can help people understand social issues and how to change society. However, some people disagree with this idea and believe it's too complex for them to understand.

8. Reading Marxist theory is still useful if someone wants to learn more about social issues and how to change them. The book has a lot of useful information that can help someone become more politically aware and engage with the world around them.

What do you think of the concept of loss of humanity/essence from implants in Shadowrun and Cyberpunk 2020?
I've seen some criticism that it sort of kills the fun of being in a transhumanist game because you can't switch a limb for something silly because any implant is going to be detrimental, i.e. you'd rather get some weapon than place a coffee dispenser inside your torso.

Communist News Network

Should we strive to create a pro-communist television news network? The strength of communist media a hundred years ago used to be measured by the number of daily newspapers - in $current_year, wouldn't this mean building a live full-day communist TV broadcast? Weekly newspapers will never have the same mass appeal as live video content.

This doesn't necessarily have to be a CNN, etc. type TV station. Alex Jones' Infowars for example has 10+ hours of live content every day on a large, but conceivable budget for a united communist party.
