Oh boy
Speaking of games, does anyone have the rulebook for Imperialism in Space?
Reminder that Monopoly was just a mod of the Georgist Landlord's Game.
Monopoly is a terrible board game, like it just goes on indefinitely unless the players decide when it's time to stop. It's just completely mind-boggling how this game even has a following when there's better games like Chess or Uno.

Also, this jab at socialists is more of a jab at liberal urbanites than anything, so I guess they know their target audience is old fucks who still believe in Red Scare propaganda and people who don't anything about board games.

Hi anons.

What are some good podcasts about marxist economic theory?
I don't give a fuck about racism, troons being troons, philosophy, political science or Adorno's aesthetics.
I want to study marxist economics, not radlib bullshit.

Here are some I particulary enjoy:

Books about marxist political economy:
>Value, Price and Profit
>The Economic Doctrines of Karl Marx
>Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism
>A Introduction to Marxist Economic Theory
>Textbook of Political Economy
>Fundamentals of Political Economy, aka the "Shanghai Textbook"

David Harvey has full courses on reading Capital on this channel. He's a good lecturer and his videos helped me a lot when struggling to understand Marx. It's also orthodox economic marxism not intersectional bullshit
Chapo Trap House, while not specifically focusing on Marxism, is effective at pointing out the hypocrisy of capitalism and imperialism. I think they'd make a good introduction into leftism in general. They do seem to jerk off over Bernie a bit too much for my taste but otherwise I have to say their analysis is on point.

Chapo shits on the historical legacy of socialism, through.
What's Left with Aimee Terese and the other guy is pretty good.

Also if anyone knows where I can get the premium episodes for free, please do point the way.

Oh wow, communists don't believe in universal political programs.
We want the age of consent to be 5 in one country and 18 in another. You got it from this free and rational talk show host right here folx.
Muh god has to be the basis of any moral or ethical standard otherwise it's not a universal standard.

The Social Media Question Comrade 08/19/2019 (Mon) 15:11:52 No. 620 [Reply] [Last]
What is to be done about social media?
18 posts and 4 images omitted.

"But how has this model of progress, in which history culminates in the glorious invention of iPhones and apps, become so uncontested?
And, if we attend closely, isn’t there a desperate quality to all this cheerleading?
Addicts always rationalise their compulsions, but the desperation here belongs to capital itself, which has thrown everything at the great digital swindle. Capital might still swagger like some data cowboy, but iPhones plus Victorian values can only be a steampunk throwback.
The return to centuries’ old forms of exploitation is obfuscated by the distracting urgencies of digital communication."

What's next for social media?
How can it get any more cancerous?
Replace with decentralized, FOSS, psuedonymous alternative, preferably run as a workers' co-op or something.
There mere existence of decentralized, FOSS, pseudonymous alternatives will not do a single thing to overthrow the corporate domination of the internet.
But foss hackers and codemonkeys will.

What about disroot?
Yes, it's called self hosting your own email server and using the right encryption
But in general, no internet service that's outside of your hands (on which you relay a lot of sensitive information) is safe
Yeah but even then you are still having an exchange between two parties.
Expecting everyone to commit to Encryption standards is silly in this day and age

New tool album Comrade 08/30/2019 (Fri) 05:43:45 No. 149 [Reply] [Last]
New tool album is out.
Thoughts? Sounds good to me.
But, it feels like their swan song. They seem to agree. Anyone else listening?

In some respects it really sounds like they are pushing their boundaries in other it sounds very cookie cutter (not a bad thing for tool)

(41.78 KB 800x800 1553146055798.jpg)
It's boring as fuck. Sounds like the band had some riffs left over from 10K days and used some Kraftwerk techniques to stretch them into 10 minute long songs. Record company wanted a longer album so they stuck in some 3 minute "songs" consisting of random noises. Nothing in particular is outright bad, but it's just so painfully mediocre, especially coming form a band that was known for being cutting edge(y).
Yeah chocolate chip trip was pretty fucking disappointing. There will be faggots that will fawn over this album and unscrupulously praise it for years to come though,

Revolutionary tech work Comrade 08/25/2019 (Sun) 14:58:45 No. 573 [Reply] [Last]
I have knowledge for FreeBSD/Linux system administration and programming skills in C, C++ and Lisp. What's the best way to use these for revolutionary work?

I thought of making an application useful for punks, bums and people living an anarchist lifestyle but these people usually either can't afford or choose not to use this kind of technology. I thought of an application that could help anarchists organize but I'm thinking it could also be used against us, because it could help fascist groups identify and find us as much as it could help anarchists find and help each other. This is dangerous because it's as useful for fascist missions as it is for anti-fascist/anarchist ones. Otherwise, hosting something like an IRC platform and creating an application to ease its use could be nice but it's already being done by IRC channels, Facebook/Messenger groups and Discord groups, and it still excludes people who don't have access to this kind of technology. The goal in making a new application would thus be to help people help others, or to make the use of the application by indoctrinated people useful to anarchists without them having to use the application. I can't find any interesting idea fitting one of these descriptions.

Right now the only thing I can see is contributing to open source software that's already being used as backbones for other revolutionary software, like news sites, blogs, applications, etc. to contribute indirectly to these while having as big an impact as possible (contributing to a library used by many platforms helps more platforms than directly contributing to one). That would be low-level stuff like nginx, widely used libraries, an IRC daemon used by IRC networks hosting leftist channels, etc.

About the FSF, contributing to software of theirs that interest me like emacs would only be useful for other programmers, who, by that fact, should already have enough talent to take care of their own and thus should be helping others. This goes for many projects by GNU and the FSF, which are often aimed at corporations and corporate pawns to make them dependent on their software and leech for donations to the foundation. In other words, the software is made to help capitalists who have money to give to the FSF. Also, contributing to GNU projects would force me to voluntarily give the copyright of my contribution to the FSF, thus alienating me of my own work. Maintaining intellectual ownership over my contribution is important to me, because even though I'm using a free license, I want to be recognized for it. The fruit of my labour is mine, made for others, and the way the FSF does things goes against that. Contributing to FreeBSD, on the other hand, would give me this, even though it has the same issue of being aimed at capitalists who have money to give to the FreeBSD Foundation.

What does /tech/ do to help people with their tech skills?

Have they on purpose tried to make him look like V/Anonymous?
I work with Backend for a lot of different Systems, if the project goes open source i would be happy to help with some backend coding.
>Some other considerations:
>- Could attract right wing terrorists and allow them to organize (not probable, but possible)
>- Bosses could infiltrate syndicates
You could have syndicates be on invitation basis (Where you write the moderator of the board why you want to join) as well as encouraging moderation of each syndicate (as you said something along the lines of reddit? that's your choice i guess)
Having a back-end you also have to take into consideration where you want to host it. I am setting a server up for personal use, if the application requires not too much load i could be swayed to help hosting it.
Good luck if you go forward with this idea Anon
there's now a thread dedicated to this idea, >>638
Write a malicious worm that targets the computer systems of banks and stock trading companies.
Create something to help people commit financial fraud. Fraud is a huge multi-billion dollar industry and many poor people actually depend on stuff like cards to get free food delivery and stuff. I used to do this kind of stuff everyday for over a year to fill my kitchen up with as much food as I could.
