Should there be an option to see "other pages" of posts? There are topics that seem to be visible only through enabling the catalog, but without that you can only see the newest posts on a single "page" of the standard UI. This is in contrast to some other imageboards (notably 4chan, among others) where you can select page 2, 3 etc.. displaying posts without having to go to the catalog display.

Is it intended functionality to not have that feature here (and a few other boards that seem to be on a similar vichan codebase like lain )? Or is there some strangeness going on on my browser's end, possibly because of addons or the like? Thanks.

Why isn't there a open source book format?

Adobe and Kindle have a monopoly on their property formats, (mobi, azw3, pdf)

Who made .eupb, it has DRM protection so I assume it isn't open source

The post was guessing the laptops themselves are sponsored by Microsoft, just like how the Mac labs were sponsored by Apple when they were a thing schools had. I was lucky where my High School in the 90s was donated an old Unix workstation that while never used in any courses the computer club had access to.

>Endlessly producing while reducing consumption is a good way to destroy capitalism, why the fuck would capitalists want that?
wow this is just unbelievably stupid
(what workers produce) - (what workers consumer) = surplus
You are not going to destroy capitalism by giving the bourgeoisie more surplus, you have to do the exact opposite.

>>17090
>Now certainly, it could be that the new slave system being built and implemented by the transnational, imperialist bourgeoisie is no longer capitalism, but neo-feudalism, or at very least, a radically different new stage of capitalism. If so, all that means is that Marx was right again– capitalism truly is ending, but the bourgeoisie have been victorious in the last century of class war, so they are trying to invent a replacement for capitalism that maintains their class rule and ownership of the world, instead of communism.

Nope the bourgeoisie can't win the class war, the contradiction of capitalism cannot be resolved in favor of the bourgeois class.
It's either going to be a proletarian victory and society starts changing towards socialism or it's going to be the common ruin of all the contending classes. (Which is also a Marx quote or at least a quote from a Marxist)

Cockshott has explained it very well. If not enough labor-time in the form of consumption flows back to the proletariat, fertility will go down, and then the proletariat will shrink. If this happens over a long enough time, it will cause a demographic shift that causes labor shortages and that will give the proletariat the leverage to assert the political economy of labor above the political economy of capital.

What might also happen is that the bourgeoisie will try to shrink the entire economy to match the demographic shrinkage. So that a labor reserve army can be maintained. There are some hints that the western bourgeoisie might be going for this. It will create a self reinforcing feedback loop, with an accelerating rate of shrinkage. In global affairs this means that the west will fade away. That certainly would qualify as common ruin of all the contending classes in the west.

They can't win the class war forever, but they of course can win for a significant period of time. I mean, you are denying current reality if you think the bourgeoisie can't win temporarily. They just had a three decade run of successful counterrevolution, and the communist movement is easily at one of its weakest points in history.

Also worth keeping in mind, if we are entering into a new mode of production based on exploitation, that it may no longer be appropriate to refer to the ruling class as bourgeoisie, and rather they are some kind of new class.

>If not enough labor-time in the form of consumption flows back to the proletariat, fertility will go down, and then the proletariat will shrink. If this happens over a long enough time, it will cause a demographic shift that causes labor shortages and that will give the proletariat the leverage to assert the political economy of labor above the political economy of capital.

The big bourgeoisie are very open about their intentions to lower birth rates and cull the working class. Most developed countries have had a >10% reduction in birth rates this year. They are betting that a combination of factors will allow for increased wealth and consumption of the ruling class on the one hand, and decreased wealth, consumption, and population of the working classes on the other hand:
>Automation making significant segments of the working classes AND PMC/clerk class redundant
>The automated digital control grid (IE, AI-driven mass surveillance, programmable CBDCs, pervasive tracking devices, information control, paramilitary police forces etc) can drive up the rate of exploitation, meaning fewer workers needed to sustain the ruling class's lifestyle
>Genetic engineering and psychiatric mind control to turn people into NPCs, the topic of this thread

A shrinking working class population is only a problem for the ruling class IF it means the ruling class's consumption and wealth also decreases. However, a shrinking working class population does NOT guarantee that. If you think the depopulation aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Id like to talk about how trustable is TOR actually?

> The code is open

Not everybody can read it, many checkers are not trustable and the CIA even admitted that it kills by using Metadata.

The Authority nodes are centralized, in universitys and maintained by ex government people from the CIA for example.
I also once read a study by a university on who funds the TOR project, tldr, over 80-90% the US government, mainly the department of defence.

So a system developed by the US government, the developers being mainly from them, it being mainly funded by them, the CIA killing based on metadata, it is fair to ask the question if we can even trust TOR.


So, since US agents use tor to communicate with their government they need us people to actively use TOR so they are more hidden, and of course they, if they could see everything on tor, would not arrest everyone who does illegal shit because they dont care about stuff thats not a threat to their money and deepstate. And there have been some moments where big bugs have been arrested by authorities by the FBI where we are still asking ourselves, AFAIK, how they knew of this bug/way of finding people over TOR. So how much else do they know in case they actually need to make someone vanish? The people behind TOR are definetly not trustable, but they hold the most power.

so what do you guys think about this?

Tor has a problem with decentralization, there are about 2.5 million users on Tor but only about 9000 relays and bridges.

I2P on the other hand has about 60000 - 74000 routers, most of them routing traffic.

It's way easier to compromise the Tor network than I2P, despite I2P having a significant smaller user base… or am I missing something?

Mostly trustable. As long as you keep your protection on Safest, you should be fine. I wouldn't be surprised if the gov. contributes to Tor because agents use it.

Try out different VOs in the config editor (RightClick -> Settings -> Show Config Editor). If none works install https://www.smplayer.info/ (or get the portable version), because it can embed both mpv and mplayer. If mpv works in smplayer the issue lies in mpv.net or the latest version of mpv. If none of the video outputs for mplayer work, your graphics are profoundly broken and you should investigate your video card and drivers.
