>“Man's dearest possession is life. It is given to him but once, and he must live it so as to feel no torturing regrets for wasted years, never know the burning shame of a mean and petty past; so live that, dying, he might say: all my life, all my strength were given to the finest cause in all the world──the fight for the Liberation of Mankind” >- Nikolai Ostrovsky, “How the Steel Was Tempered” <The world in the 21st century is dominated by an increasingly moribund and irrational economic system which values profit over people and the environment. The ‘dotcom’ bubble of the early 2000s, the financial crisis of 2008 and the crisis of the early 2020s have shown that the global capitalist system is unable to deal with the social and environmental antagonisms of our times. In such times, there has been an increased interest in bringing about an equitable and green post-capitalism – a higher mode of political economy. In this situation, the most important issue is the question of how these aims will be practically achieved. While any solution will likely involve a diverse array of tactics and the participation of the masses, there is one form of direct action that has often been neglected by the left: that of ‘hacktivism’. Hacktivism is not 'revolution' but is actually a form of (illegal) direct action which can enhance the revolution and information which is available to the proletariat. Without the Stratfor leaks for example, free Jeremy Hammond we never would have knowledge of the FBI infiltration of Occupy Wall Street ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_enforcement_and_the_Occupy_movement ). This is a general thread for hacktivism and hacktivist related topics.

In the last two years we had: -Assad winning the war in Syria but at the cost of letting a jihadi state be established in Idlib+Afrin+Al Bab -Lebanon spiraling into a unsolvable economic crisis -Lebanon pushing for partnership with Russia and China while Usa have made clear threats against them -Israel pushing for annexation of the West Bank -Turkish imperialism rising to prominence both in Syria and Libia -Libyan war escalating with direct intervention from Turkey and Egypt - GNA/Turkish deal for Economic Exclusive zones that threatens Italian and Greek bourgeoisie interests -Italy's ENI drilling activites getting blocked by Turkish ships in Cyprus -Italy and Greece signing a deal on their own EEZ that seems to suggest a future Anti-Turkey alliance -France pulling out of NATO naval operations in the Mediterranean, citing conflict with Turkey Is it just me or ALL those events seems like a prelude for something bigger?

Left would be mainstream if people wouldn't fellate mass murderers like Stalin, Pol pot or Viet cong. Trying to convince people with something like labor theory of value won't work either since anyone with an IQ over 100 and a curious nature will immediately notice the gaps and holes in it. What's next, you think you'll convince someone educated and middle class that his labor is equilavent to that of an junkie? Lets face it, most takes here are purely contrarian in nature, like Trumps policy in opposition to Obama.

>>670105 LTV presumes equilibrium prices of a mass-produced good that is re-created on consumption, in a stable market environment (ie most things you buy on the shelves) and attempts to explain why prices stay near that equilibrium. Stubbing your toe on a lump of gold does not change that market unless stubbing your toe on lumps of gold starts to significantly affect the market.
>>670090 >There is literally nothing good about the American war in vietnam, even many conversvatives and libs believe that. Keeping army of rapists at bay was reason enough. Fun fact, Viets ""purged"" million of their own after the war. The difference between them and US is that there were no records kept. The only way we know about the women who were forced to participate in Tet under threat of rape was that some survived

>>670065 <A man goes out panning for gold and at the end of a 10-hour day has enough grains of gold to make an ounce. Another man goes walking along and in 1 minute, trips over a stone. He picks it up and it’s a gold nugget. >>671987 >Can someone explain why was this anon banned for being correct? This is just a mod-messsage, it doesn't necessary mean the anon was banned. Also anon is not correct. You have to consider that economics looks at production of an entire economy, and if you want to mine more gold you can't just tell people to go out and about and stumble over more gold nuggets. So the example would be your job is to direct workers to produce gold. Where do you reckon productivity is better ? 1.People walking all over the place occasionally stumbling over something, then picking it to check whether it was gold, picking it up if it indeed was gold and if not dropping it and moving on, or 2.do you reckon that exploring the geology of a region and then drilling mining shafts into places that have a high likelihood of having gold deposits. The example that the anon gave you was about playing to the mental-vulnerabilities of people, so basically such a vulnerability is that some people don't understand probability-maths and as a result they fall for thought examples that contain the lottery-winner-fallacy. Which basically aims to override reason logic and facts with making people imagine they can solve problems by getting lucky. If you read Marx, he writes about labour-time as being the substance of value for reproducible commodities, and you can't reliably reproduce getting lucky and just finding a gold nugget.

I see this term used a lot in social media, I can sort of imagine what "male-coded" and "female-coded" mean but then there's a post where someone described a straight person acting gay as "coding". where does all this "code" shit come from?

Communism is unipolar? Anonymous 07/07/2020 (Tue) 00:07:33 No. 671623 [Reply] [Last]
Wikipedia on Polarity (international relations): >Unipolarity >Unipolarity in international politics is a distribution of power in which one state exercises most of the cultural, economic, and military influence. Isn't Communism inherently proposing a unipolar world order? And isn't this in essence the reason for the sino-sovjet split, because both countries expressed to be the centre of the communist movement?

>>671701 It was different because the Soviet policies, while they could get ugly and result in some injustices, were generally done to protect the USSR itself. Russia's geography is such that the only realistic route for an invasion is through Poland, Ukraine, etc. This is the route that Germany had twice invaded and nearly destroyed Russia. For that reason the Soviets (and even contemporary Russia) considered maintaining a buffer in Eastern Europe to be critical to their security. Not to mention that by and large they didn't economically exploit these states, but in fact spent a whole lot of money rebuilding and rearming them. This is all in contrast to the US who would regularly overthrow elected governments not for the purposes of protecting their own borders but for encircling the Soviets. Consider some of the American and British interventions (coups and invasions): Korea, Iran, Vietnam, Indonesia, Greece. Are any of these close to the US? No, but they're all pretty close to the USSR. Compare that to the four major Soviet interventions: GDR, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Afghanistan. All states which were in the immediate vicinity of the Soviet Union. Not to mention that US interventions often took place in the context of a state trying to free itself from Western exploitation, even if that state posed no threat to the US like Chile, Guatemala, Nicaragua, or the Congo. In these cases and others I mentioned, American corporations stood to lose billions if the elected governments got their way. In other words the Soviet policies were driven by a need to protect themselves after being nearly destroyed. The American policies were motivated by a desire to strangle the USSR and from pure unadulterated greed.
