Marxism contradict natural reality and metaphysics Comrade 07/18/2018 (Wed) 18:00:56 [Preview] No. 6921 [Reply]
I am a fan of Henry Bowden too, he was pretty cool, too bad he was a fat fuck who ate himself to death.
bowden is usually hilarious but this gross mischaracterization of marxism is ridiculous. He conflates marxism/historical materialism/ communism. He takes for granted all the grandiose concepts such as 'human nature', ascribing it his personal definition fraught with incoherence and contradiction with literally no justification. He makes the fallacious (((them))) argument with claims about how many communist party members were jewish derived directly from his arse (the real numbers are less than 10%). He completely misunderstands Gramsci's theory of hegemony supplanting the Marxist notions of base and superstructure, confusing it with the Frankfurt school's 'cultural turn' in their later work. His points about the limitations of Marxist thought, namely its disregard for psychological nuance has been addressed by marxist thinkers since the 60s - namely through Marcuse, Althusser etc At the end of the day, Marxism doesn't need to entail some perfect theory of human existence, it is primarily concerned with the critique of our current conditions of social organisation, understanding Man as a being that responds to his surroundings, with the power in some cases to choose how he responds. This is the power of leftist thought that Bowden waves away as utopian, without understanding that man's ability to change his condition is part of the human spirit he claims to defend.

The dude said some pretty interesting stuff sometimes but he was not nearly as intelligent as he thought he was, he's too sentimental to take seriously, like all conservatives.

admittedly communism is a failure,but it is an interesting idea. but could use some more work, so if it does get another shot it does not result in a big mess.
what is the new system that if ever given the chance would be best, and why would it work better than capitalism for the situation during its possible future era

The Russian people openly accepted the fall of the Soviet Union, crushing communist statues and electing non communist candidates
1 post and 1 image omitted.

I'm saying this only because I don't support authoritarian socialism, but the Soviets (kind of like the US) setup parties in certain SSRs which spread pro-USSR "messages" and tried to diminish separatism.

(I only know this happend in the Baltic States, but those were illegally annexed and culturally diffirent from the soviet slavs, with possibly the exception of Latvia)
Hey not a leftist just checking out what cancer you are spreading, anyways the problems with Soviet Union were multiple it is like you people forgot all the people dead in gulags in Stalin's purges, the opression that the soviet regime had and only think of it in this glorious bubble of yours. The problem with afterwards free market version where a dictator is in charge is also as bad, the corruption has been huge but less so now than before Putin. Putin cleared up the mafioso infested place a bit but still is violating in many ways.
Actually, the USSR:

had the 2nd fastest growing economy of the 20th century the USSR is 2nd after Japan Source: https://artir.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/captura-de-pantalla-de-2016-05-26-10-15-23.png

had zero unemployment have continuous economic growth for 70 straight years. see: Robert C. Allen's, From Farm To Factory Source: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi= (review of book here https://homepages.warwick.ac.uk/~syrbe/pubs/FarmtoFactory.pdf ). The "continuous" part should make sense – the USSR was a planned, non-market economy, so market crashes á la capitalism were pretty much impossible.

had zero homelessness. Houses were often shared by two families throughout the 20s and 30s – so unlike capitalism, there were no empty houses, but the houses were very full. In the 40s there was the war, and in the 50s there were a number of orphans from the war. The mass housing projects began in the 60s, they were completed in the 70s, and by the 70s, there were homeless people, but they often had genuine issues with mental health.

end famine have higher calorie consumption than USA Source: https://artir.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/compar1.png?w=640

. You can read more about the post-1941 famine history in Nove's An Economic History of the USSR 1917-1991. There were food insecurity issues, especially when Khrushchev et al. majorly fucked up with trade and resource dependence on the west, but no famines after the collectivisation of agriculture in the early 1930s (except for in the Siege of Leningrad).

end sex inequality Source: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Constitution_of_the_Soviet_Union_(1977,_Unamended) Equal wages for men and women were mandated by law, but sex inequality, although not as pronounced as under capitalism, was perpetuated in social roles. Very important lesson to learn.

After the October revolution, the life expectancy for all age groups went up. A newborn child in 1926-27 had a life expectancy of 44.4 years, up from 32.3 years thirty years before. In 1958-59 the life expectancy for newborns went up to 68.6 years. This improvement was seen in itself by some as immediate proof that the socialist system was superior to the capitalist system be 25 years away from reaching parity with Western world This is kind of a counterfactual – the transformation of the USSR to capitalism began a long time before 1991, so trying to figure out what Soviet growth would look like if it hadn't become capitalist requires that we root out the fundamental cause of the change to capitalism. And we can't even use US economic stats either – the mass-privatization of the Soviet economy and the sudden influx of cheap labour for Western capitalists obviously had an effect on the US economy. But then again, even a 1% difference will stack up over 25 years.

Now let's take a look at what happens after the USSR collapse:

infant mortality increase Source: https://knoema.com/atlas/Russian-Federation/Nenets-Autonomous-District/topics/Demographics/Mortality/Infant-mortality-rate-deaths-before-age-1-per-1000-live-births Was 29.3 in 2003 which is around (current) Syria and Micronesia, 7.9 in 2013. Given the trend downwards, it was likely to have been much higher in the 90s. There's a weird amount of variation between years – I have no clue why. Infant mortality in USSR was 1.92, literally the lowest in the world. What the actual fuck. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_Soviet_Union#Life_expectancy_and_infant_mortality
