>muh doomsday scenario Capitalist elite will inherently have more survival chances in any scenario(search "neo-feudalism"), even if half the plankton goes extinct(plankton : the primary source of oxygen in the atmosphere). https://earthsky.org/earth/how-much-do-oceans-add-to-worlds-oxygen As the pollution(microplastic) and CO2(ocean acidification) start killing off plankton in large amounts, the percentage of oxygen will begin dropping, which will start killing animals, starting with less efficient lung-less supply system - sort of a "canary in the coalmine", such as insects( we live in a world with 'dwarf insects' because larger insects died off due inefficient oxygen supply system. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/10/101029132924.htm ) (human might create a "bottled air" economy or domed cities to prolong civilization) and eventually life on the "unprotected" surface will either die or adapt to low oxygen levels(think spacesuits and oxygen balloons): populations which can't afford to buy bottled oxygen will slowly choke to death and die from anoxia. The elite might survive with robotic industry and automation in some way, but there will be no "consumer economy" or grand-scale civilization with billions. The future is not looking good, even if you stop most CO2 the pollution in the ocean will takes decades to clear off(microplastic is especially vile stuff that poisons the marine food chain https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4420992/Shocking-photos-reveal-plankton-consuming-microplastics.html ) The scale of pollution, the plastic-filled oceans is not known, the microplastic is invisible, tiny specks. Here is how the marine food chain collapses: Plankton eat microplastic. The fish bio-accumulate plastic by eating plankton. Sea predators eat plastic-filled fish. They all receive a hefty dose of endocrine disrupting chemicals and various plastic-bound toxins( https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/5/1509/htm ).

>>19369 >My point is that Marxist regimes were very anti-gun. Stop pretending that Marxists support gun rights when they don't. Because they pretty much all came orignated as semi-feudal shitholes that didn't even have gun rights in the first place. If there was ever a revolution in Burgerland or any other developed country with loose gun laws, the right to bear arms would most likely be preserved. Most leftists would be perfectly fine with maintaining the freedom to bear arms, just former Socialist states had stringent gun laws doesn't mean it's a de facto necessity of socialism you fucking ape. >Pathetic whataboutism. I never said most countries had permissive gun laws. My point is that every Marxist regime had draconian gun laws and claiming that Marxism is pro-gun is wrong Again, Marxist states in a world where almost all countries have restrictive gun laws does not prove that Marxism is inherently anti-gun or whatever bullshit you're peddling, Marxists of all tendencies disagree with many aspects of actually existing Socialist states, and gun laws is among them. >the USSR banned everything except double-barreled shotguns for citizens. <source: my gaping, dilated asshole. >Why did the Nazis massively loosen gun laws for its citizenry? <only source is wikipedia Every time kek. >Every fucking time.

You're not even using the word correctly you fucking dullar >Marxist regimes were very anti-gun Your point is a flaccid mess because not being an autistic faggot about guns =/= hating guns.

They aren't toys to be played with for to be used "just for fun" They are tools, you may enjoy using them but cannot forget that fact. >Wikipedia <muh nazi loose control This meme is such bullshit that you're a fucking retard for not reading into it at all. Jews were banned from owning guns and had them confiscated. Ordinary proles could "legally" buy guns but given that wages dropped in nazi Germany, very few could afford to.

My favourite poem: Dis Loesung by Brecht: After the uprising of the 17th of June The Secretary of the Writers' Union Had leaflets distributed on the Stalinallee Stating that the people Had forfeited the confidence of the government And could only win it back By increased work quotas. Would it not in that case be simpler for the government To dissolve the people And elect another?

>>19393 IMO Lindybeige is one of those people who has his heart in the right place and a good head on his shoulders but is clearly surrounded by retarded/poisonous ideology and isn't critical enough of his own context. History buffs tend to fall into rightoid nonsense if they don't have a solid materialist base, because the main alternative is nationalist narratives. I forget if he discussed it in that video, but being alone in general is probably a form of low-grade trauma. Most people throughout history spent most of their time with at least one other person within line of sight, shouting distance, or arm's reach.

(58.62 KB 720x589 Nice One James.jpg)
Something I really like about the 5th movie is the line "Nice one James!" by Sirius in the Department of Mysteries. It’s a nod to one of the subplots of the fifth book, perhaps even the main subplot. Many adults, like Sirius and Snape, have difficulty telling James and Harry apart despite their differences in character, largely due to their similar looks, Quidditch skills, and daring heroic personalities. In both cases it is merely due the fact that he doesn't know Harry as his own person very well yet and it's human nature to view children as extensions of their parents. Couple that with the loneliness he was feeling, stuck at Grimmauld Place and it's not out of the ordinary that, at that moment, he wanted Harry to be more like his old friend. Sirius is constantly being reminded through the book that Harry is not James, and suffers a lapse of deep disappointment when he himself realizes that Harry is more different than he would like. This is all subtle build up to the infamous Snape’s Worst Memory scene where we see firsthand James behave in ways quite alien to Harry’s character. It doesn’t help that Sirius WANTS to see as much as James in Harry as possible. He blames himself for the death of James since he persuaded James to use Peter, and he is not fully psychologically capable of accepting that James is dead (on a subconcsious level). He hopes that if enough of James is channeled through Harry then he can relive his lost years from Azkaban. However at the same time he knows the two are different; Sirius breaks out of Azkaban out of fear that Pettigrew will harm Harry, leaves some southern paradise to live as a dog and eat rats because Harry needed him, and most importantly, explicitly tells Harry that he was a much better person than James was at the same age - i.e. he is fully aware of how different the two are. Since the film is too cramped to cover this, this line was what they settled for. A LiveJournal User named Cleolinda* made an excellent post about why this works; ‘"Nice one, James!" was such a wonderful bit of screenwriting economy. It expressed everything that was going on in that relationship, and Radcliffe shot Oldman this wonderful look right after … "like he realized something about Sirius that he hadn't before and it was so sad." And no, I don't think that Harry = James is all there was to his relationship with Sirius, because there was a lot at play there--both of them needing a family, Harry in particular needing some kind of mentor-father (particularly after Dumbledore began to distance himself), Sirius seeing not only James but himself in Harry (where "running away to the Potters' " equals "practically being adopted by the Weasleys," for example), Sirius wanting to recapture the Three Musketeers vibe of his youth, and so on. There are a lot of little love stories in the HP books, many of them more parental or brotherly instead of romantic, and I think Sirius and Harry is one of them, but I think Sirius and James is another, and "Nice one, James!" was the moment when Harry realized how they overlapped, and how Sirius might not be living--might not be able to live--in the present.’ In the book, Molly warns Sirius that Harry isn’t James in a separate scene - scriptwriting economy combines the whole lot of implications above into a single beautiful Freudian Slip. It can also be interpreted to allude to one of Snape' terrible memories; in the fifth movie, when James flips Snape upside down, Sirius says "Nice one James!" as well. “He's not a child!" said Sirius impatiently. "He's not an adult either!" said Mrs. Weasley, the color rising in her cheeks. "He's not James, Sirius!" "I'm perfectly clear who he is, thanks, Molly," said Sirius coldly. "I'm not sure you are!" said Mrs. Weasley. "Sometimes, the way you talk about him, it's as though you think you've got your best friend back!” *(known for Movies in 15 Minutes; https://m15m.livejournal.com/2237.html)

>>19271 Speaking of moments the movie did better I have 2 others off the top my head First is where Harry gets his solution to the 2nd Task in Goblet of Fire; Whereas in the book Dobby is the one who overhears a staged conversation about gillyweed and gets it to Harry at the last second just before the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament, in the movie they clean up the storyline by having Neville talk about Herbology, thus directly firing that Chekov's gun set earlier with Madeye. The book not having Neville do it (and having Madeye berate Harry for not listening to his friend) just makes Harry look far stupider than he otherwise is. Neville: "You know, if you're interested in plants, you should use Goshawk's Guide To Herbology. There's someone in Tibet who's growing gravity resistant trees..." Harry: "Neville, no offense, but I really don't care about plants. Now, if there's a Tibetan turnip that will help me breathe underwater for an hour, great. But otherwise..." Neville: "I don't know about turnips, but you could always use gillyweed." In this case, dear Neville is the saviour of the day. The Second is when Umbridge is taken to the Forbidden Forest and Umbridge is being apprehended by Grawp and a forest full of angry centaurs, she cries out, "Please, tell them I mean no harm!" And Harry answers "Sorry Professor, but I must not tell lies" which provides excellent sass and a witty return of the blood-quill punishment she was handing out to him. this is one of very few instances that I will concede the movie picked up on a brilliant idea that the book did not. of course it really made the 'centaur rape' meme blow up among the fans lol
(243.56 KB 500x353 hand curse.png)
(114.26 KB 840x952 Withered hand painting.jpg)
(This is all spoilers, for newfags) So a while back when I was reading Half-Blood Prince there was the plot point of the curse on Dumbledore's arm from the Gaunt's ring (with resurrection stone) that had been made one of Voldemort's Horcruxes which 'ensured' Dumbledore's death within the year. Unfortunately this creates a problem because it would seem much more expedient to then hurry and eliminate any known horcruxes while Dumbledore and his considerable power was still around... or even use amputation to sever the maimed arm and replace it with a prosthetic. There are three in-universe options - either He didn’t think of doing so, He didn’t want to do so or Doing so would make no difference to the outcome. The simplest reason overall is Rowling simply didn't think of amputation while writing the story. She just wanted to kill off Dumbledore and didn't quite think through the means used. The curse: https://harrypotter.fandom.com/wiki/Curse_on_Marvolo_Gaunt%27s_ring If Amputation could have helped, an interesting short-text for the amputation written out: https://archive.is/GW8yd Moreover Dumbledore is known to be a wizard of equal or of greater skill than Voldemort. Voldemort was capable of making a new hand for Pettigrew after he cut his off so that Voldemort could be revived. However it could have been dark magic (as the hand did turn on Peter) and unlike Peter, it would have been removed from a curse, which as injuries do not recover easily (Deathly Hallows, when George get's his ear cursed off In Iruka and Will of Fire (mentioned in anothere post), this is also (sort of) done during the Horcrux hunt at the Gaunt Shack. And interesting idea of why Dumbledore could simply not have thought of it is something poetic; Most Pureblood wizards don't know much about muggles, including their medicine. We've been amputating for centuries because wounds that can't be healed fester, necrotize and spread. However, the vast majority of wounds in the wizarding world are easy to heal and this is the only curse in the books that spreads this way. There would never really be a need for amputations. In other words, it never would have entered their minds. Sure, Dumbledore tends to keep abreast of the muggle world but even still I doubt he knew much about muggle medical practice. However, if he had told more than just Snape about his condition, someone who knew more about muggle medical practices (like Mr. Weasley and his stitches), it could have healed him. Dumbledore being so secretive was ultimately what lead to his death...and it certainly fits the tone the 7th book took towards Dumbledore's character...he was a great man who had faults and made mistakes. However this feels a bit too unlikely, as Mad-Eye Moody probably DID get amputated, though alternatively the clunky prosthetic may have been why Dumbledore didn't want the prosthetic during a key time. When Harry goes into his Pensieve in Deathly Hallows, we hear Snape say two things about the curse: - “It is a miracle you managed to return here!” Snape sounded furious. “That ring carried a curse of extraordinary power, to contain it is all we can hope for; I have trapped the curse in one hand for the time being —” And Snape hesitated, and then said, “I cannot tell. Maybe a year. There is no halting such a spell forever. It will spread eventually, it is the sort of curse that strengthens over time.” - (Deathly Hallows, P. 681) Which implies that the curse was like a late-stage cancer, even removing the affected area will not remove the cell damage spread throughout the body and it will come back over time. It also resembles Brown Recluse Spider bites, wherein hideous, necrotic wounds, resistant to conventional healing and often preventing skin growth or grafting, and cutting away the bite and necrosis does not ensure it being stopped, because venom doesn't remain isolated at the place of bite. Analysis of victim's blood showed venom proteins quickly spread throughout the body; remaining active for a long time. The withering-away or "mummification" of Dumbledore's hand, proceeds in the fashion of a Brown Recluse bite; only instead of an organic protein-based toxin, it had involved a magical toxin-like counterpart. In other words the withering of Dumbledore's hand had only been the visible and main manifestation of the "curse-toxins." Like the spider-venom counterpart, as well, a major quantity of "curse-toxins" had already proceeded up the arm, and were circulating throughout Dumbledore's body. Or it could simply be magic Gangrene. However, if that was the case, could not Phoenix tears save him? Of course since this is magic and not science, we don’t know how the curse operates; if you chop the hand off, the “thing” that’s keeping the curse suppressed might break and then it could just continue to spread up the arm as the hand comes off. Since Dumbledore and Snape hadn't talked about having Dumbledore reprise the famous old Celtic Magister's role, right down to the wearing of a precious-metal hand, I'd assumed the wound would inexorably continue to "mummify," no matter how high-up (how far from the "mummy-hand") they chose to amputate.

yo so i guess i havent really listened to too much music from bands from this era or at least not there most recent releases part of it is to preseve the mythologizied part of them from my youth and to just say "that bands old" or what ever but this is not the point really as I'm sure many know brand new's lead dude said he did some stuff to chicks on tour way back when and like that's really just the tip of the ice burg in regards to this as there were so many allegations flying around at one point i just stopped i stopped listening it wasnt worth it any more i hate to sound sort of like a chud here but it was like when i was getting into leftism... i made a passing line about my admiration for a band in the genre (that genre being emo and pop-punk) specifically over me liking a non problematic band and this woman had the audacity to call me a "stan" of the sexual predators which i wasnt defending at all but it has made me not want to discuss music any more i used to play guitar every day and just like knowing that 1. I'm Older now and being a muscian dosent feel the same as it used to i used to feel cool i used to feel like it was empowering now i dont know 2. should we just be like "oh there cancelled never speak of them again" or should we be like a bit more aware of that trying to look into cases though the sheer amount of them all was so overwhelming im tempted to just NOT do that 3. is Music bourgeoisie ?? is it impossible to ""enjoy"" music in a "captalist society that exploits the common man's labour ?" i miss being able to enjoy music how much of that is from growing older and how much of it is becoming more informed of "problematic elements within your music taste" it's weird cause like despite my awareness of other things being "inherently reactionary" i have still let myself enjoy them un affected by my turn to leftist politics in some cases turning them into a new way to direct my political energy I'm usuaully willing to duke it out with these sorts of people who are also apart of my leftist circles with everything but music or specifically this sort of music i even have gone so far as to start embracing international music so i cant be accused of "clearly this artist is a misognist" cause if i dont know what the words are saying then i cant be "doing harm to women and girls" like that one women said me liking this genre did
