JoJo's Bizarre Adventure thread? Anonymous Comrade 06/30/2020 (Tue) 20:08:43 No. 11024 [Reply] [Last]
Thoughts on Jojo? It's one of my favorite animes. Besides Jonathan being born as a nobleman and later Joseph getting rich as a businessman, I like how it is so "bizarre" and fantasy like that it doesn't seem to have much of a liberal or even political undertone.

How did this absolute madman Boots Riley actually pull this off? Anonymous Comrade 06/25/2020 (Thu) 18:49:03 No. 10848 [Reply] [Last]
Boots Riley is a literal MLM ranting on Twitter defending Venezeula and shit like that. Sorry to Bother You had scenes that pointed at imperialism. How did he slip through the cracks, considering the anti-communist character of the American film industry?

If you pay attention and watch this movie critically, you will notice that it is actually very liberal. The producers of Zero Dark Thirty did not screw up by funding Sorry to Bother You, in fact they were very cunning by making a movie that subverts socialism.

Reposting a Nuclear Take Voldemort represents Communism, ever since the 2016 US Elections, liberals have been eager to compare to Trump to all sorts of things: Adolf Hitler, President Reagan, and even Lord Voldemort. I am here to tell /leftypol/ that these comparisons are mistaken, as I will explain throughout the rest of this post. Voldemort's life and ideology actually have more in common with Lenin, Stalin, and that of the Soviet Union. Here is my reasoning: 1) At the beginning of Tom Riddle's journey into the Wizarding world, he is a very poor orphan with extreme talents in magic that were very unusual, far beyond the likes of mere charlatans like Hitler and Reagan. He considers death a "human weakness", as in, a contradiction innate to all men that he wished to overcome after suffering the death of his mother. He recognizes this contradiction, but does not yet recognize how to overcome it. His talented side mirrors Stalin's talents in religious knowledge as a young boy. His struggle mirrors Lenin and the death of his brother 2) In Tom Riddle's sixth year, he questioned Professor Horus Slughorn about a key to immortality, the Horcrux. this is considered forbidden, but known, knowledge by "high-ranking" individuals who were considered "loyal" to the traditions of the Wizarding world. Knowledge that would resolve the problems caused by death. Might I suggest this is most similar to the knowledge of Communism? Communism seeks to resolve the effects of exploitation by sublating them under a new system, one that requires class struggle and blood sacrifice. The horror on Professor Slughorn's face when Tom Riddle poses the question could basically be put in the context of a student asking a question about Communism to Slughorn's muggle, liberal counterpart. 3) After Tom Riddle discovers the Horcrux (Communism) he develops a new admiration for magic, putting it on a higher pedestal than he could've possibly imagined before. Historical necessity was calling to him. That is, the historical necessity of magic. The liberal interpretation of Harry Potter is that the muggles are, to put it bluntly, ethnics. But this couldn't be further from the truth. The muggles are in a privilidged caste of society that oppresses Witches and Wizards, forcing them into hiding and doing everything in their power to stop the development and integration of magic into the world. Tom Riddle comes to a fateful conclusion: in order for immortality to blossom, Witches and Wizards must overthrow the muggles and become the ruling class in society, forming a Dictatorship of the Witches and Wizards where magic can be integrated into it. The dynamic between muggles and wizards mirrors that of the bourgoisie and the proletariat. 4) Tom Riddle traveled abroad and experimented on the Dark Arts for 10 years. pushed magic to farther boundaries than they ever have been pushed. He developed his ideology and theory in order for the great revolution that would push the world into the next era of civilization. Much like Marx and Lenin during their banishment. "I have experimented; I have pushed the boundaries of magic further, perhaps, than they have ever been pushed —" 5) Voldemort started the First Wizarding War by taking advantage of one of the wizarding world's greatest weaknesses: the beings and creatures that they had persecuted. Giants and werewolves. The oppressed and outcast. This is not unlike how the Bolsheviks used the Jews in Russian society to their advantage: the Jews had been subject to open harassment in the Russian empire for decades, peaking during the recession caused by WW1. Lenin knew how to speak to the oppressed and the forgotten. Those that wanted a better society for themselves and for everybody. 6) In spite of the Death Eater party's threat to the established order of the Wizarding world: that of ethnic segregation and chattel slavery, the status quo was soon restored by the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's army. The threat of Horcruxes and the violent outburts of the oppressed in wizarding society were soon considered to be extinguished and all but forgotten. Much like the Soviet Union and its ideology of Communism, which Capitalism replaced for good. Unless another wizard as powerful and ambitious as Voldemort should choose to discover it again...

>>10382 An interesting if somewhat Americanistic cyberpunk book is "When Gravity Fails", a world where traps are the norm and the west has declined to the point of being comparable to the current Middle East, where the story is set. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Literature/MaridAudran?from=Literature.WhenGravityFails There is also Snowcrash which essentially depicts an Ancap's wet dream. Gibson helped popularize cyberpunk, but was never the best cyberpunk writer IMO

Some say that the terrorists and UNATCO are both cartoonish version of libertarians and modern US politics and that merging with the AI and crashing the system is libertarianism. On other hand people argue that Full AI merging is communism. I would argue that neither is true. The companies, as you hack into their emails throughout the game, all represent booming industries (security, medicine, banks) it is revealed that they intentionally keep jobs scarce and people desperate, because working conditions don't matter. They even reference this strategy, then going to politicians and saying "We'd love to hire people, but we can't afford to with all these pesky restrictions like safety, etc". A clearly libertarian approach, but this is not presented as a good thing, except by proxy. For example in Mankind Divided, a poor man who was told in order to get a job they needed to give him cybernetic hands to produce productivity. And the man was so desperate for a job he did it, which resulted in "cool hands" but at a clear loss. This is clearly an anti-capitalist message. However to those who cannot see past the "ooh its cool cyberpunk" it seems pro-capitalist. On the other hand we have the merged AI which is supposed to ease the prediction of needs for people. However it also removes all sense of personal privacy and smacks of "the Borg are communists because they're collective" strawman, and is terrifyingly transhumanist. What's the point of living if everything is decided for you? Also on the topic of conspiracies, Everyone is so skeptical of Illuminati and shit... yet the series reveals ECHELON, years before Snowden. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECHELON

The whole romanticism of cyberpunk is fucking horrid. it fetishizes dystopian outcomes and ultimately makes it something to look forward to rather than strive to avoid. Look at how reddit/4chan hypes anything up that is related to that stupid fantasy. >muh neon lights >muh qt cyborg gf >muh robotic arm <who gives a fuck that technological overload is damaging. it doesn't help that 90% of the media that depicts the future caters into this fetish; Ready Player One is a good example that it's become merely an aesthetic. A quote from a cyberpunk thread that was rather interesting in relation to this, ''Neal Stephenson was right and the reality is maybe a bit closer to Snow Crash than Blade Runner. We even have high-speed dystopian pizza delivery. Also met Bruce Sterling once at a book thing. And I blurted out "I really liked Islands in the Net!" And he replied in his sarcastic way, "thanks but I only killed, like, one guy with a drone in that." His self-deprecating joke is that his prediction was off in terms of the number of people getting popped by drones in the cyberpunk future he was trying to describe in the early 90s.'' In short we need more media that accurately displays the true horror of "cyberpunk" settings. Something like pic related, or children of men.

Reposting the kitschy Cyberpunk I want to ask Leftypol's thoughts on this, just some things rattling around my head I think we live in a Cyberpunk dystopia; like, I think we're already there, in the very early stages of one Not just dystopia, specifically a cyberpunk one We have the start of advanced mind control prosthetic limbs Mass poverty only getting worse Ecological collapse Autonomous weaponry Drones doing most of the military death squad actions The bloody internet, its culture, and the parasocial relationships within it Highly advanced automation Genetic engineering World ending superweapons That's all just off the top of my head And yet...strangely...things all look almost the same? They look roughly the same as how I remember the 2000s

I read this and laughed my ass off while nodding in agreement to all of it. It was like a blast from the past and sort of reminded me of the '90s cyberpunk shit that was going on in this thread You're a 90's kid if: You can finish this 'ice ice _" You remember watching Doug, Ren & Stimpy, Pinky and the Brain, Bobby's World, Felix the cat, The Tick...AAAAAAAH Real Monsters! You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!" You just cant resist finishing this . . . "Iiiiiiin west philidelphia born and raised . . ." You remember TGIF, Step by Step, Family Matters, Dinosaurs, and Boy Meets World. You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons. You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. You remember reading "Goosebumps" You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school. You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence . . . not If you remember seeing hot tub bubbles make bubbly sounds before every music video on VH1. when everything was settled by rock paper scissors..or bubble gum bubble gum in a dish...eeny meeny miney mo...and even better daddy had a donkey inky binky bonky. You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record your FAVORITE song of ALL time. "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" was both a game and a TV game show.

Thoughts on the works of Cormac McCarthy? Anonymous Comrade 06/23/2020 (Tue) 21:45:00 No. 10772 [Reply] [Last]
Extremely talented American writer, more well known to book lovers than the American public tho Dude writes incredibly dark and graphic stories that reach the very heart of human savagery, suffering, evil, and occasionally; their perserverence In looking at the true ugliness and brutality of reality, Cormac takes the strands of darkness to write incredibly beautiful and poetic novels McCarthy's work is like finding a black rose floating atop a river of lava in the heart of hell itself His works include: The Road The Outer Dark Blood Meridian No Country for Old Men All the Pretty Horses Child of God And many more I do not quite know the names of
I read the road, ncfom, and blood meridian. Meridian is the only one I vividly remember however. Really liked the ending to that one. One of my favorite pieces of media.
