Idpol is a virus, how can we innoculate?

Idpol can best be described like a virus, or like 'The Borg' if you've seen Star Trek. It infects movements and actions and projects that would otherwise actually accomplish anything in functionality or practicality, brings it down to a halt with astonishing speed and power that seems to come from nowhere, eats it from the inside out, wears it's skin, and then demands it's respect. I've seen absolutely nothing ever be able resist it. Whether or not it's an FBI COINTELPRO operation, it is certainly doing the same work an actual COINTELPRO operation, and with great success.

I'm an american on the east coast. I went to a local anarchist meeting here. As far as I could tell I was the only anarchist there. There were nothing some authoritarian liberals who were just pro-violence and property destruction so long as it was used to silence and censor people who didn't vote for non-white Democratic Party candidates. At my schools socialist club meeting there was one genderqueer blue haired Marxist and a bunch of authoritarian liberal lesbians to whom the word 'socialism' means high taxes under capitalism which go towards free abortions and slavery reparations.

Nothing so far works against it. Everything is being consumed. What can be tried next?

Respublica: A Political Simulation Game

Hello /leftypol/ Respublica: is a free to play political simulator. I am recruiting for the Scottish National Party as well as the Labour Party. The objective of the game is to run for elections in Parliament and win seats to advance the socialist movement in the United Kingdom. Both parties have agreed to a permanent coalition and share a discord, the community is also very active and large and elections happen every week. If you are looking for a niche experience, join the Scottish National Party which is smaller than the Labour Party and only plays in Scotland. The Labour Party is larger than the SNP and operates all over the UK but needs more members to combat the Conservatives and the fascists in UKIP. If you are interested in playing join our discord first and an officer will verify you: EykP8n

So Antifa girl is raising money to start a labour movement with the help of fellow comrades. Check this out:
"My friends who organized the GoFundMe campaign are going to be taking a grant approved by me to fund a Democracy@Work Action group, an organization that is dedicated to coordinating activists to set up housing cooperatives for those committed to the engagement in labor struggle on a daily basis, and the empowerment of workers unions, which is desperately needed in light of the Trump administration. Their first project is to launch an app to securely allow workers to organize and communicate to demand better working conditions and recieving more than a livable wage. This is the economic battle that comes with the fight on the streets. I'm taken care of financially for my medical and legal bills and am glad to help kickstart this badly needed organization for cooperatives. Thanks again for all the support, again and again, comrades. ❤
- Louise"
Obviously I can't stress enough that an app like this would help the labour movement intensely. So if you can donate here is the link: https://www (dot) gofundme (dot) com/3nj1iqg
And if there are any questions or concerns send a message to the page "Class Action Praxis" on Facebook. Screenshot for proof of project.

First off, apologies for creating yet another thread about this individual. I know there's been a lot of spergrage from idiots on leftypol and elsewhere about him.

That out of the way, I've started reading his book to see what all the fuss was about. I'm only on the first chapter and I've got to admit I'm already extremely impressed with his ability to construct a persuasive argument. Reading through the notorious "lobsters" section, I can see the ideological content embedded in there, such as implicit naturalistic fallacy to justify hierarchy in human society and spurious use of the Pareto principle but it's cemented in well.

If you've not looked at this book, you might want to add it to your reading list. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who's read the book and spotted how the text functions beyond what I've noticed so far.

Try and wake me up.

I was born in the USSR. My parents hated it. My sister hated it. I hated it. So I was all happy when we moved to the US.

Unsurprisingly my parents ended up being pretty Right Wing and I started on that path but when I learned early on in my teens that I liked other women and saw how everyone but my dad suddenly hated me and how everyone on the Right hated me I decided to look at the Left until I noticed "Oh no that's where the Commies are D: D: D: D: D:" and so I've spent so long on the fence that I'm used to the feeling of picket poles going up my ass.

But I'm growing more and more contemptuous of the Right and suddenly Lefties are starting to sound more reasonable than other Centrists & Liberals and all that. But I still have a bit of a built in gag reflex whenever I think of supporting Communism just because of my experiences in the USSR.

So perhaps I need a little push.

Do your best to shake me awake, as it were.

The USSR is gay revisionist poo and no, communism does not advocate for a gay society; it is actually quite normal for communists to be anti-gay. If you wanted to go down the "revisionist" road, you could make a strong argument being pro-gay is form of revisionism. Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao were all anti-homosexual. Engels most explicitly so, and Lenin indirectly. Almost all communist-led governments have been anti-homosexual, with basically the exception of modern day Cuba (though they were historically anti-homosexual too). Even most communist parties that have significant mass-support are anti-homosexual, such as the KKE in Greece.

Beyond all that, the greatest attacks on the male homosexual identity came from queer theorists. Queer Theory is basically a body of work that deconstructs the idea that the male homosexual is born that way. This work should be seriously studied by Marxist-Leninists. People are not born homosexuals, they are turned into them somehow. In fact, there was no such thing as a homosexual until fairly recently in history.

In short, homosexualisty is perpetuated not by the individual, but by the bourgeoisie of society into the individual's mind.

NEETs and work

Let's say that a socialist/communist utopia becomes a reality and that everyone could have their basic needs taken care of, including work being available for everyone that wants it, do you think a larger percentage of people would sit around and do nothing?

I've spent some time on other chans talking to NEETs and the vast majority would rather be doing something with their lives rather than sitting around playing games and watching hentai even if it was menial work.

What does left think? Are people inherently lazy or would more people be working in a communist/socialist-automated utopia?

>In the U.S. the Reagan Administration increased the budget for the military and presented the possibility that it would implement a Star Wars antiballistic missile system. To maintain a parity with the U.S. under those developments would have required an even larger share of industrial output going to the military. The planners and decision-makers had to face the fact that it was economically impossible for the Soviet Union to increase the share of its output going to the military. The Soviet authorities then ended the arms race and called off the Cold War. When the justification of an external threat was removed there was no reason for the Russian public to toleratestat the totalitarian regime and the political system fell apart.

>Part of the military buildup of the Soviet Union was in tens of thousands of tanks. They had 25 thousand in East Germany alone. They were very pleased and confident with this vast superiority in tanks. This confidence held up until President Jimmy Carter announced that he was considering the development of a neutron bomb. The neutron bomb would produce armor-piercing radiation which would kill the crews of tanks but leave the tanks unharmed. This would have made the tank force of the Soviet Union not only ineffective but a danger since enemies could take over the tanks after the crews had been killed and use them against the Soviet Union. The Soviets organized an international peace campaign against the neutron bomb. It was run by the KGB office near Moscow. It was effective enough to get Jimmy Carter to cancel the development of the neutron bomb only a year after he announced its consideration.

>The budget increase for the military came at the expense of investment in the rest of the economy. Nikolai Leonov, a general in the KGB, described the result as follows:

First there was a visible decline in the rate of growth, then its complete stagnation. There was a drawn-out, deepening and almost insurmountable crisis in agriculture. It was a frightening and truly terrifying sign of crisis. It was these factors that were crucial in the transition to perestroika.

>Gorbachev and Yakoblev did not intend to dismantle the communist system. Instead they intended to make it work.Years after the fall of the Soviet Union, Yakoblev said in an interview

It seemed to us that all we had to do was to remove some prohibitions, some brakes. Free everything up and it would start to work. It would work. There is a good engine there. It has got a bit old and rusty. It needs oil. Then just press the starter and it will set off down the track. And we went along under this illusion for one and half to two years.

But as soon as we began to make really radical reforms, in foreign policy say, we immediately came up against the resistance of the system, that is to say, the military-industrial complex, the central core of the system. It began to resist.

And that is when we began to understand that if we wanted radical reform we would inevitably come up against the resistance of the system. And that is what happened. And from that moment on people began to say that the system is unreformable and the Party is unreformable. Although there did remain some illusions, some hopes, that it could all be done without major conflicts.

>The supposedly progressive system of socialism actually was a replication of feudalism in that there was an absence of personal freedom of the common people and also in that the core of structure was an elite oriented toward militarism. The common people, the workers, were treated like serfs and slaves: they were given the necessities of food, shelter, clothing, transportation and medical care but little else. This is the same regime that prevailed under slavery.

A "New Era"

It seems to me that there's been a pretty clean break between "The Left" of the 20th century and the emerging "Left" of the 21st. I think that if you were to chart the trajectory of Communist thinking, you could start with the publishing of The Manifesto and draw an ending point at the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

So, as far as the Left is concerned (broadly speaking), there has been a 26 year gap, both of intellectual development regarding Socialism/Communism, but, luckily, also a gap in the omnipresent propaganda of the Cold War.

Things look pretty bleak at the moment, but I think we're about to enter in the coming decades into some really exciting developments regarding theory (among other things as well, but that's beyond the scope of this post). I believe too that /leftypol/bunkerchan/getchan/ are important parts of this formative period.

hello comrades, something ive always wondered as a leftist from an 100% albanian family is how much hoxha is memed up. is hoxhaism really a big thing in tankie circles? what do hoxhaists believe? from what i understand isnt it just stalinism/maoism pre "revisionism"? my family does not talk about him in a positive light, growing up in albania during the time my grandparents remember learning chinese folk songs in school, they all cherished having universal health care and that there was no crime (my dads side lived in the country side near yugoslavia, and my moms side lived in the capital tirane) however they always said hoxha was ruthless. yes the bunkers are a big meme and if you ever come to the country many of them have been removed, but theres still some left in beach areas/the country/even some on display in the capital, they did "set us back economically" which may or may not be bullshit if money did matter that time

R: 2 / I: 1 / P: 9

>Bruno R. places both the Soviet and fascist regimes under the category of “bureaucratic collectivism”, because the USSR, Italy and Germany are all ruled by bureaucracies; here and there are the principles of planning; in one case private property is liquidated, in another limited, etc. Thus on the basis of the relative similarity of certain external characteristics of different origin, of different specific weight, of different class significance, a fundamental identity of social regimes is constructed, completely in the spirit of bourgeois professors who construct, categories of “controlled economy”, “centralised state”, without taking into consideration whatsoever the class nature of one or the other, Bruno R. and his followers, or semi-followers like Burnham, at best remain in the sphere of social classification on the level of Linnaeus in whose justification it should be remarked however that he lived before Hegel, Darwin and Marx.

>Even worse and more dangerous, perhaps, are those eclectics who express the idea that the class character of the Soviet state “does not matter”, and that the direction of our policy is determined by the “character of the war”. As if the war were an independent super-social substance; as if the character of the war were not determined by the character of the ruling class, that is, by the same social factor that also determines the character of the state. Astonishing how easily some comrades forget the ABCs of Marxism under the blows of events!

>It is not surprising that the theoreticians of the opposition who reject dialectic thought capitulate lamentably before the contradictory nature of the USSR. However the contradiction between the social basis laid down by the revolution, and the character of the caste which arose out of the degeneration of the revolution is not only an irrefutable historical fact but also a motor force. In our struggle for the overthrow of the bureaucracy we base ourselves on this contradiction. Meanwhile some ultra-lefts have already reached the ultimate absurdity by affirming that it is necessary to sacrifice the social structure of the USSR in order to overthrow the Bonapartist oligarchy! They have no suspicion that the USSR minus the social structure founded by the October Revolution would be a fascist regime.

Children in California show elevated lead levels at rates higher than Flint, Michigan

By Glenn Mulwray
3 April 2017

>Recent data released by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and reports from the Reuters news agency have revealed that children in 29 California neighborhoods have tested for elevated lead levels at least as high as children in Flint, Michigan poisoned by that city’s 2014 decision to tap into the contaminated Flint River as the primary source of drinking water.

>California’s hardest hit areas showed nearly 14 percent of children age 6 or younger with elevated lead levels, compared to 5 percent across the city of Flint at the height of the ongoing water contamination crisis.

>Lead is a dangerous neurotoxin that accumulates in soft tissues and bones, damaging the nervous system and causing brain damage and blood disorders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no level of lead exposure is safe.

>The highest levels in the state came from a downtown Fresno neighborhood where 13.6 percent of children tested at or above the 5 micrograms per deciliter of blood that the CDC identifies as the level at which a public health response is warranted. In total, nine Fresno County zip codes in the state’s Central Valley showed lead levels in children at the same rates or higher than in Flint.

>According to a 2016 Brookings Institution report on concentrated poverty in the wake of the 2008 Great Recession, Fresno was the hardest hit city in the country, with a concentrated poverty rate of 44 percent, 19 percentage points higher than prior to the recession. Estimates for 2016 place Fresno’s population at 520,000 while the Brookings report classifies 254,008 Fresno residents as “poor.”

>Last year residents in Fresno began reporting a rust tinge in their tap water. Testing by the Fresno Public Utilities Department of 698 homes revealed the presence of lead in 286 homes with 119 at the 15 parts per billion or higher threshold, set by the Environmental Protection Agency, at which a water agency must take corrective action.

>A lawsuit was filed by residents of two northeast Fresno zip codes against the city of Fresno and two water-meter installation contractors alleging that the city knowingly switched from groundwater sources to surface water treated at the Northeast Fresno Surface Water Treatment Facility, causing their water to become discolored and contaminated with lead.

>The complaint says the switch in water sources from the highly mineralized groundwater to the chemically different surface water destabilized the mineral coating built up in the pipes, causing lead from the pipes to leach into the water supply, an outcome that the city was aware of based on a 1998 study the city commissioned to analyze the consequences of such a change.

>Also targeted in the lawsuit are Vulcan Construction & Maintenance Inc. and Measurement Control Systems, two companies contracted by the city to install water meters from 2008 to 2012.

>“As a result of the defendants’ failure to adhere to industry standards for the installation and connection of water meters, and specifically by joining dissimilar metals without taking the appropriate measures to prevent and protect against accelerated corrosion, the pipes supplying residents’ water, including plaintiffs’ water from the city, corroded at an accelerated rate, thereby exposing residents, including plaintiffs, to toxic levels of lead and other hazardous substances,” the complaint alleges.

>One of the attorneys representing the Fresno residents, Esther Berezofsky, expressed concerns over the findings in Fresno telling Law360 late last year, “This concerns me as another canary in the coal mine, and emblematic of an emerging crisis across the country with steps not being taken to protect residential drinking water and the deleterious effects that result.”

>Other areas that tested for high lead levels include neighborhoods in and around Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area, the second- and seventh-highest GDP-producing metropolitan areas in t

Is the abolition of borders really a "pro porky" position like people on /leftypol/ keep saying? It sounds like crypto-racist polshit to me.

Wouldn't the abolition of borders necessitate the abolition of private property? If that happens then the entire basis for the exploitation that drives 3rd to 1st world immigration would evaporate, negating the need for massive immigration in the first place.

Bunker Men Recruitment

Are you tired of classcucked spooky Westerners telling you that porky worked hard for their money? Are you tired of the so-called "left" that tells white working class people that they're muh privileged over millionaire white women? Are you tired of sitting on your ass and not fighting (possibly dying) for socialism? Have you ever fantasized about being Che Guevera or Vasili Zeitzev? Well get off your fat ass and join the Bunker Men.

This is the official Bunkerchan YPG/IFB recruitment thread for Anons who are interested in joining up with one of the best hopes for socialism in the modern world. The purpose of the Bunker Men is to co-ordinate activity between Westerners who want to fight against Daesh and Erdogan, and hopefully come out of it with a qt Kurdish war bride.

We will use this thread and encrypted chat services to co-ordinate travel and the pooling of resources, because let's face it, soft doughy westerners like us are all shitting our pants at the thought of getting smuggled into Syria in the dead of night, so we might as well bring a friend.

Discussion in the thread should be limited to basic stuff, no details about your travel schedules, the inner workings of the YPG or anything like that. We don't want the Turkroaches listening in after all. If you are serious about joining, get yourself an app called Wickr. It's an encrypted chat so available on iOS and Android. Download it and contact me under the name KomradeKurtz, and we can work together to make travel and entry into the country easier on all of us.
Join the Bunker Men today!

Do people actually think Anarcho-Capitalism is Anarchist at all? All it does is take the state and replace it with a state, while not calling it a state. It seems like a return to Feudalism almost.

Smith Act

What are your opinions on the Smith Act? The part that can jail you for up to 20 years for advocating the overthrow of U.S. Government, that is.

I personally think it's kind of a drag, but it makes sense since they need an excuse to arrest revolutionaries who don't commit crimes.

It's annoying, because I like to talk with my friends a lot about Marxism and such and I'm always worried that I could go to jail for expressing my thoughts about the country I live in.
