ITT document crimes of socdems in your country or others

An anon in the OC thread posted about the 1988 plebiscite in Chile that ended Pinochet's dictatorship, and there's a handy list of parties which were in favor of maintaining Pinochet's rule (the yes vote) and for ending it (the no vote). The social democrats were on the yes side, even the fucking christian democrats were in favor of ending it.

In my country (the Netherlands) it were the socdems who privatized rail, mail and energy in the 90s during a coalition government with the liberals. This same party opposed Indonesian independence and sent in troops right after we were liberated from the Nazis. They also prohibited the Dutch Communist Party from attending the memorial of the February strike which they had organized.

Social Democracy is since 1914 a dead horse and there is no reason to defend it. Period.
Honestly, i see no harm in this. Ancestor worship needs to be treated like any other superstitious backwardness.

political hacker news posters are the fucking worst. they're either arrogant liberals or arrogant right wingers, and their takes are as hot and retarded as you'd imagine.
first video was really good
second video, translator was boring as fuck. I would've preferred subtitles.
good post.
I have like 6k karma on hacker news and I get warned frequently for explaining something in marxist terms, I usually get the dumbest replies ever back but end up positive. A lot of them like to think of themselves as "intellectually curious" so if you frame it in the right way they will at least pretend to be receptive. In particular since HN has a west coast bias people are generally pretty receptive to the concept of decommodifying housing
Well, they did it. Search about Petrocaribe. And the boogey man in govs. Of South america was the money of Venezuela and it's support for others (Search ALBA or Casas del ALBA).
The great riots of Haiti inthe last year were about Petrocaribe, the president embezzeled the money, a lot of millions that were for infrastructure

fuck those kids, your job as an adult is to make them read no pander to their brainletry. there are already enough poorly read internet communist pseuds online, you aren't doing them a favor by letting them skimp on homework, it leaves them vulnerable to turning back to liberals in the long run
Err I guess if the North/South divide is really that important to this day. Otherwise the last two chapters are only worth reading.

Even if his indictment of southerners is way too harsh that I suspect he is a self hating Southerner.

LEFTIST PRAGERU Comrade 08/10/2019 (Sat) 23:23:03 No. 22869 [Reply]
Doing some research on this, this is what i found:

>Each video costs between $25,000 and $30,000 to create
>The organization has a $10 million annual budget, of which it spends more than 40% on marketing.

I'm thinking, can't this be done on a smaller budget, if we want to do a left-wing version?

Similar format to Prager u, doing leftist videos. Obviously the left doesn’t have oil billionaire money to fund that sort of things and the platform would have to be as anti-sectarian as possible to appeal to the widest possible audience.

Possible topics:

Climate Change (especially this one)
Gender Pay Gap
Proving the Labor Theory of Value
Debunking Race Science
Economic Cybernetics/Digital Political Economy

so firstly, I made us a riot.im server to discuss this topic further. please reply with either your Riot name or Matrix ID so I can send an invite to anyone who wants.
secondly, I'm an "animator" (self-taught, not professional) who knows how Blender3D like the back of his hand. I learned it when I was 12 to make Minecraft animations and have been using it ever since for various other things (mostly making renders and videogames). I'm not any good, but a 2D project like PragerU would be a cakewalk compared to the other stuff of done. Pic related is all done by me in Blender. and before you ask, yes, Blender3D can be used for 2D animations, see: the animators for South Park, who use Maya3D to make their show.
The problem is I don't have a lot of time, I'm an undergrad Electrical Engineering student at a reputed school so I get boatloads of homework constantly, however I'd be willing to teach anyone who wants to learn so that eventually I won't be necessary. Blender is free, so if you want to help, install it (get 2.79, I have no fucking clue how to use anything 2.80 or newer). We also still need a writer and narrator cause I'm not doing that shit.
I can make Lego stopmotion videos.
That video animation was done by "AnActualJoke", a insufferable anarcho-liberal fatass. Once you tell them you're /leftypol/ they'll call you a red fash or something.

Portugal Strike Thread Anonymous 08/15/2019 (Thu) 16:02:02 No. 28899 [Reply]
So it seems fuel drivers in Portugal went on a strike. The government declared a state of emergency and driving fuel trucks without permission became punishable by up to 2 years in prison. The police started seizing trucks from the workers and the army was put in charge of distributing fuel across the country. It seems that minimum services were delivered by the drivers, but the government still fucked them over.

Fun fact: according to BBC, the union spokesman said that "No-one will respect the minimum service or civil requisition,", while according to reuters he said "I see this as an attack on the strike, because these people (the drivers) delivered minimum services.” It seems BBC was taking him out of context.

Can any Portuguese anons give their opinions and information about the strike? Was the army used for arresting truck drivers? That would be pretty interesting.
Portugal seems based tbh.
Portugal is like an inverse of Eastern European states RE its party politics. Instead of it having horrifically right-wing people masquerade as liberals, they have social conservatives pretend to be socdems because calling yourself right-wing literally means fascist.
Also their constitution has like state socialism in it technically (but it was never acted on). Still, they retained really strong trade unions also.

Class Unity DSA (Normal People Caucus) has become the first/only DSA caucus to translate their statement of principles into Spanish. (no really)

https://classunity.org/ (original English version)

Short version:
1. Class politics, not identity politics.
2. Material politics, not symbolism.
3. Mass politics, not subculture.
4. A true workers’ party.

It's so fucked, it's beyond fucked.
Holy shit if the landlord thing is true then the DSA is more fucked up than I knew.
Bitch I was saying something along these lines before it was cool
It’s mostly good praxis for fighting a war of position/low class consciousness environment, apart from explicitly wedding themselves to Bernie.
