>>7626 The game plays in high feudalism. How the fuck is that supposed to look like? The most progressive thing you'd get would be free cities and merchants.
>>7628 Maybe huge peasant uprising or anprim gangs that Balkanize the kingdoms and create separate communes.
>>7630 Who wants to be a filthy utopian socialist feudal anarchist?
>>7631 I mean a society like that is not inherently anti-technology at all and maybe they could transit to an industrial revolution of sorts with the proletariat owning the MoP from the start through innovation in agriculture.

Hello everyone, after some serious temptation due to watching various militaria channels for some months I think I'm gonna finally jump on the bandwagon and try WT/WoT. Does anyone have experience with these kind of games? How badly exactly am I gonna get fucked by premium/longtime players? I did some searches and it seems most people agree that WT is much more realistic and simulator-y than WoT which is good cause I'd like to try realism. So, that's the one I'm downloading right now, but does anyone else have a different opinion on it? In addition, I know there's probably a huge amount of affiliate new member deals out there but does anyone know what one is the best I can use currently, ideally linked to a good YT channel that deserves it? If not I can just search for it but hey. General advice for getting started (or why I shouldn't)?

>>7551 Perhaps I will try it sometime but I like tanks more, tbh. Anyway, I did finally find a promo code and got free American premium tank so I started off with Americans, I was having a lot of fun with the light scout tanks you start with and was doing pretty well. Eventually I decided to try branch out a bit once I was in 1.3 and try a tournament which meant we were in 'realistic' mode. And, wow, it was absolutely miserable. Giant empty maps and German tank destroyers and the like hiding absolutely everywhere, my M2s and the like were absolutely outclassed and worthless. I was dead most of the time before I even saw an enemy. Then I drive all the way back to the objective and repeat. Every other player was just hiding behind rocks and the like and not even trying to capture or defend anything. Absolutely infuriating and that was how every battle in realistic mode went. I dunno if it's the game, my skill level, or just early American tanks, but wow, it sucked.
>>7575 Now of course you might say that the obvious solution is to stick to arcade mode, but it kinda makes me feel like a scrub :( Well, anyway, gonna start out with the Soviet tech tree instead and hopefully that will go better.
>>7576 Don't feel like a scrub. Simulator mode for tanks is nothing but ambushes since there are no IFF indicators. It's realistic for sure since ambushing is a pretty effective way to destroy tanks but if it's not enjoyable then don't play it.
>>7583 Yeah, I think you're probably right about that. It just seems to encourage a very unfun and scrubby playstyle to me. Perhaps I will give it another shot when I'm better at the game. Anyway, my progress on the Soviet tree has gone pretty well, I even tried some other types of low tier vehicles like a little tankette with an autocannon instead of a main gun, got a decent few kill streaks with it but decided to stop when I came upon two bots and one enemy player and was outmanouvering them and surviving by stunning them with the autocannon but wasn't able to penetrate them at all at point blank range so inevitably I died once the player got me in his sights properly. And the less said about my attempts to use the AA truck the better.

>>7477 he was looking to avenge the death of his Balkan village that got genocided. wasn't on vacation
>>7477 He left his country because of war and lack of opportunity to become involved with the Russian mob and only then went to the US. Going to the US and the degeneracy were incidental, plus he clearly dislikes capitalism and can observe and display contempt for the enhanced alienation of the cosmopolitan libs he encounters in Liberty City (which is basically NY)
he's a lumpy, stalin robbed banks too

>>7453 season 2: (just checked, pilot doesn't count as a season oops) ultimate lord, biggest aristocrat of them all, if garmadon is a baron then the overlord is the king long ago defeated (first spinjutsu master is the leader of french revolution who beated the king) also intresting how the skeletons help the ninjas out once there master is gone (they reached class consciousness, there not the bad guys) also the snakes help, having learned from there mistakes and became libertarian socialist season 3, technology falls in the hands of the overlord (king) monarchs are more dangerous then ever season 4, literal bourge fast food store owner wants army of libertarians to take over the world season 5, ronin is a literal petty bourge, ghost are lead by old guy who cant let things go, what does that remind you off? (conservatives) season 6, after being kicked off there homeland some ghosts (Zionists) try to invade someone else's land to live there, the ninjas are pro Palestine and beat them season 7, (honestly i grew up around this time, everything else i watched after this point and even a bit before that was pure out of nostalgia) some guy is obsessed with time, ultra conservative, other guy is a neolib who doesn't care but doesn't want to get confrontational so goes along with it all season 8, insane religious cult tries to resurrect to go back to "better time's" season 9, Netflix doesnt have this yet and dont know howto get it, dont know what happens after this point

>>7456 so that is my communist ANALysis on lego ninjago, if anyone has questions, objections or there own interpretation ill be glad to hear it
>>7457 thank you, I appreciate your analysis of ninjago very much. do you think that nya's character is supposed to represent feminist themes? also why does her outfit have the colors of vietcong?
>>7474 that is a striking analysis, the feminist part is probably unironically true since Nya was a damsel in distress stereotype in the pilot but i like how the creators decided to give girls a role model to look up to so Nya is a Vietcong, skyler is a mutualist (she owns her own fast food chain but is still sympathetic to the ninjas) Jay is transhumanist (he also shows interest for technology so makes sense), zane a pacifist that rather uses his head to solve problems then to fight them out, we saw this a few times like instead of fighting the Zionist ghost he played chess with him, Cole is a anarchist and kai obviously is a communist, although later in the show we saw a lot more black, so we can guess that the ninjas became a lot more anarchist as time went on, the ninjas also became lot more independent from sensei wu as the show went on so you see how the ninjas get more and more passionate for a stateless society
>>7484 >owns well because she is sympathetic to the ninjas she probably doesn't own it herself, maybe she does for legal reasons in the capitalist society that ninjago is but its probable she runs it like a co op

Got poison oak all over my body and face clearing land in a think thorny area. Id it for a trees and shade favoring flower garden.
>>6321 I'd like to do this but I don't even know what plants are native to my area.
>>6312 Some flowering plants are edible (fruits come from flowers), and lots of flowers will attract pollinators for any fruiting plants you have.

Does anyone know the "language" of flowers and flower arrangements? I don't remember much about it, but it sounds intriguing. Also if I remember correctly certain flowers are used for different kinds of medical toxins/poisons used by people in the past (such as Belladona). Pic related
>>7382 Depending on where you are you may have a government department that catalogs that information.

We need to make bunkerchan browseable on smartphones. Clover was really comfy for browsing 8/leftypol/. Any Comrade willing to help implementing the Lynxchan API to Clover/Kuroba?

Repositories for references:


Currently they support only the Vichan API, but implementing Lynxchan API shouldn't be too hard.

Really like the Japanese novel From the New World which has a free translation in here http://shinsekai.cadet-nine.org Also would recommend the anime which came from the book.
>>7167 What’s the deal with Japan’s fear of superpowers in general?
>>7148 I made a thread about utopias in particular >>6533
>>7148 Blindsight was pretty good and one of the first book that made me question the meaning of sentience. Was it just our still idealism that separates true self awareness with Chinese room AIs. Especially love how it makes the post human alien to the point of lossing our sympathy for them. The Lensmen series is also peak sci-fi opera and that was written by a food engineer (also that DC ripped it off).
>>7174 1) China-Mongol attempt at invasion 2) Japan's small size 3) Japan's own strive for imperialism 4) WW-IIs staggering defeat.

Godard Anonymous Comrade 03/18/2020 (Wed) 22:13:07 No. 7100 [Reply] [Last]
Do you like Godard movies? Probably most famous leftist director. Do you think he doing disservice to socialist ideas by obscuring them? I love his 60s movies: Pierrot le fou, Weekend, but i must admit i dont understand his latest movies, maybe because i dont understand historical context. I watched Film Socialisme today but i dont know what to think about that, can anyone explain what does he want to achieve?
Can't really help you with his later stuff, but I've enjoyed all of his early New Wave works from the 60s as well. Contempt, My Life to Live, and Alphaville are personal favorites.
