Comrades, tell me, do you feel a well of love and empathy for your fellow man? Anonymous 03/18/2020 (Wed) 01:24:46 No. 372244 [Reply] [Last]
I dont know whether it's because I'm incredibly high at the moment, but currently I feel a great love for humankind. Humans, what a special species they are, the only one capable of true evil, and yet, just as capable of as yet incomparable kindness and altruism. Honor, wonder, knowledge, wisdom; yes humans are special indeed; hell, it's impressive that humans are the only type of ape that actually isn't ugly! So tell me, you're communists, you should feel at least some compassion for our fellow hoomans, tell me how you love humanity comrades!

Left unity is not a meaningful concept or desirable goal, and (intelligent) argument between leftists is a good thing because it refines our political understanding. Please, tell me why I'm wrong.

>>392424 >The way by which a revolutionary movement grows... worse, is by trying to unite with pre-existing groups that have COMPLETELY divergent policies and goals The thing is that the SPD did indeed have a strong basis among the workers, and theoretically at least they shared socialism as a goal with the KPD. In more immediate terms, they at the very least shared the goal of stopping the Nazis. Imo this alone should have been enough for united action. >the KPD probably didn't want to unite with the SPD over the, uh, you know, murdering thing that happened Which is why I don’t necessarily blame the KPD for their distrust. However with hindsight I think it’s fair to say that joining together would have been a better course of action. >I think I did read about a coalition offer made by KPD at the last minute, which SPD rejected Quite possible. I should specify that I’m not only blaming the KPD here. The SPD is also guilty of sectarianism, arguably moreso considering their traitorous actions in 1919.

Why tf was this thread bumplocked? Overzealous mods?
>>392434 >with those who defy the will of the majority. Right now the only ones who defy the will of the majority are you leninists. No one wants ML anymore. You only use "the will of the majority" as a form of legitimization whenever it suits the leninist agenda. That's why you did the October coup d'etat (the so called October revolution against the will of the majority, since it was the SR's who held the majority of votes not the Bolsheviks.)

The USA is in a unique position where a general strike may occur due to Trump and state governors prematurely ending COVID-19 quarantines for the benefit of shareholders, corporate executives, business owners, maintaining US dollar hegemony and boosting re-election chances. Therefore it is advisable for American progressives, democratic socialists, whatever the pro-working class left calls themselves, to educate themselves (and more importantly spread to others) on gun safety, gun laws and affordable deals on the market on handguns, rifles, kevlar and ammunition for the purpose of self-defense. Of course, face masks and sunglasses or goggles should also be worn to reduce COVID-19 infection chances.

it would make sense to use the hamsic, only if this is a project implemented by some party that's already established and known. otherwise just use the quote or some other cool quote

The Sanders Cult Anonymous 03/21/2020 (Sat) 22:36:16 No. 384373 [Reply] [Last]
I don't want to be sectarian or anything, but I do want to say it. People keep saying the Sanders supporters are our best hope to get more people to socialism, we must unite with them and radicalize them, etc. I only ask how. I did all of this, I actively engaged in support of Sanders despite indifference to bourgeois electoralism because other MLs convinced me to do otherwise is "sectarian". The entire time I have not seen a single Sanders fan turn towards Marxism. Not one. They have all remained, more or less, wrapped up in the pap and pageantry of bourgeois politics. Now that MLs are finally reaching out to these people on the eve of their defeat they hiss and spit in our face. >HOW DARE YOU MOCK ME, HOW DARE YOU CRITIQUE SANDERS They say >THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT CAN BE DONE, YOU ARE SIMPLY A LARPer! They continue, as though they are asked to take up arms and storm heaven. They act as though phone banking for a politician in a bourgeois party in a bourgeois election is revolutionary, this is nonsensical, by that logic Obama's hope and change bullshit had worth. When do they join our cause I ask? Clearly the 2016 ratfucking wasnt enough, they kept their faith in bourgeois politics somehow; their attacks against "tankies" and demanding support for Sanders during this election also betrays their faith in bourgeois politics. Newsflash If you demand unwavering support for Sanders in the hope of his victory you are necessarily revealing your belief in bourgeois democracy as you implicitly believe in the pretense that it is, in reality, democratic I don't care if you call yourself ML, this is foolish, we are not in Lenin's time, the alternative to social democracy is not monarchy or military dictatorship. If you do believe a Sanders victory was impossible to begin with due to the machinery of the DNC, then support was not only a waste of time, but foolish to boot. The responses I've seen to the Sanders defeat are thus: >Denial, i.e. "He can still win!" >Anger, i.e. "Damn dirty tankies!" which is really just the inverse of the "YASS KWEEN" Clinton nonsense >Depression, i.e. "Sanders lost, all is lost, hope is shattered, time to cry, time to die" >Bargaining, i.e. "AOC 2024!" I've not seen this proliferation of a new generation of revolutionaries people told me I must pull my punches for. When will they appear? You know what happened when I actually tried reaching out to these Sanders worshipping DSA types on my campus? I was already in contact with some of them prior, while we watched the Super Tuesday slaughter I asked them if theyd continue the struggle even if Sanders lost. They just told me they'd cry and that they dont want to think about it. Whenever leftypolers try reaching out to Stupidpol or Chapo they hiss and spit at us for daring to suggest they should prepare for a Sanders defeat.

>>391570 Soviet republics had far more rights and autonomy than US states ever did. Ukraine and Belarus even had UN seats.
As much as I personally dislike Bernie/AOC/etc, I don't let those feelings overwhelm my commitment to ML. History is long, the laws of history operate on timescales that we're not accustomed to thinking about. Social democrats have been around for as long as capital has been around, and as long as the laws of capitalism are in motion, social democrats will continue to exist. The laws of history operate regardless of what your feelings are towards them, so there's really no point in putting emotional stock into being frustrated with social democrats. Yes, it is frustrating that their followers won't learn about the history of the second international, but it doesn't change the fact that a certain segment of the population will inevitably be drawn to reformism, i.e., the path of least resistance. The reemerging of social democracy in the US is the very beginning of a radicalization process that will take decades more to continue.
>>391729 even so, an ML ought to be aware that Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Stalin all set a precedent of "ruthless criticism" towards other leftists. that's our job as well, isn't it?
>>391742 Oh yeah, of course. I'm constantly trying to convert my social democrat friends. The point is to not get frustrated with the process of history.
>>391745 good advice comrade.

The stock market used to be predicted by machines, now its run by machines. The machines make predictions and act accordingly, they sell when they think others are going to sell, and thus make the sell-off real. The stock market is run by non-human entities, and to predict these falls and rises that they make into reality they use bulk analysis of the media and the internet. Because of this, most of the digitally generated advertisements and spam aren't even created with humans in mind. They are created by machines with the goal, if not consciously, then acquired through trial and error, of influencing other machines to predict a rise in stock and then make that rise happen. Human beings become a cog in the machine of automatic cultural generation, a variable to be manipulated by automatic systems into affecting other automatic systems, our culture a generation of faceless algorithms responding to each other in an endless feedback loop, men enslaved to the unconscious goals of the market and the automatic structures they themselves have set up.

From a decade ago. https://www.computerworld.com/article/2516076/regulators-blame-computer-algorithm-for-stock-market--flash-crash-.html >According to the two agencies, an automated trade execution system flooded the Chicago Mercantile Exchange's Globex electronic trading platform with a large sell order that caused the Dow Jones Industrial Average to plunge by almost 1,000 points in a half hour, wreaking havoc on an already stressed market. ... >Shortly after the crash, the U.S. House Financial Services Committee held a hearing to examine the issues surrounding the stock market plunge. Although the committee found no single reason for the steep drop, it suspected it was triggered by an order entry mistake and exacerbated by automated trading systems that process trades in milliseconds. We've been in the future for at least a decade, bro. Wake up and realize it.
>>391524 It goes back farther. The 1987 crash was a similar situation. One or two humans sold, and the mass of automated traders reacted within seconds and crashed the DOW by nearly 22%. They have limits now to stop that sort of thing from happening, but the market is still under the control of the machines.

Polish Communist Party warns of EU-led attack on communism after newspaper editors fined The communist journalists had been acquitted of charges of “promoting a totalitarian ideology” at a hearing in January last year. But the case was reopened following an appeal by the prosecutor’s office, under pressure from the ruling Law & Justice Party.The attacks were encouraged by last year’s “reactionary” European parliament motion, which equated communism with nazism. https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/w/polish-communist-party-warns-eu-led-attack-communism-after-newspaper-editors-fined Lombardy workers threaten to strike after government fails to shut down factories due to virus crisis According to Marco Bentivogli, the head of the Italian Metalworkers Federation, “more restrictive measures are needed” in the northern region of Lombardy, which suffered most from the ongoing epidemic. https://on.rt.com/adbx Unions welcome government's decision to renationalise rail services RAIL unions welcomed the government’s decision to take control of Britain’s privately operated rail services today, but added that it should not have taken the Covid-19 crisis for public ownership to come into effect. https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/b/unions-welcome-government-decision-to-renationalise-rail-services Chinese worker writes on the coronavirus pandemic: “Disaffection is growing among the masses” A correspondent in China sent the following notes on the rising political and class tensions in that country produced by the worsening global COVID-19 pandemic and the repressive response of the Beijing regime. https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/03/23/chin-m23.html Pompeo to meet Taliban in Doha in effort to revive peace talks
