Why the most of leftist smoking? Anonymous 03/24/2020 (Tue) 09:37:52 No. 391309 [Reply] [Last]
I mean the leftist traditionaly smoke. What is this background? And If you smoke why you do?

>>397504 >What about Che, Fidel, and pretty much everyone else that has been mentioned itt? Did they not have that "iron discipline" because they smoked? Well Che and Fidel smoked cigars, the nicotin is absorbed mostly through the mouth rather than the lungs. So maybe because cigars are puffed that prevents some of the degradation of lungs. If you think that nicotine will improve your discipline, maybe try patches or gums. That way you can at least test if it's actually the nicotine that is responsible for the effect. It might be that it's not the nicotine and the discipline enhancing effect comes from the oral stimulation of sucking on something. In that case you might just opt for stuffing a small peace of pipe with some herbs that have pleasant odour and ad component to the pipe that mimics the air resistance of a cigar/cigarette and suck on that without actually lighting it on fire.

>>398017 They made me feel that way when I was 14 as well. Not borderline nauseous, but physically ill. It took me years of smoking very occasionally before I could finish a cigarette, but once I got to that point I fell in love with them. I wouldn't recommend trying to get hooked though, it is very hard to quit.

Any books on the fascist mind? Anonymous 03/22/2020 (Sun) 00:14:11 No. 384586 [Reply] [Last]
Can you guys recommend me psycho-analytical works on the fascist mindset. My father comes from a military family, and he never refuses a moment to bootlick, despite looking like a complete idiot. I find it fascinating how someone could completely surrender their mind just to be seen by others as a contrarian. It's a particular mindset that is harbored by some even on the left (tankies) where they derive pleasure from subordinating themselves to a paternal figure or ideology. I can't explain it with my own words but I'd like to understand it better.

Can't go wrong on Umberto Eco's Ur-fascism, which goes through in part the psychology of fascism.
>>385482 He was originally a Nazi, his racial pathology, as he admits himself is because he was bullied as a child by other black kids relentlessly, in that sense he genuinely is afraid of black people; and even understands that some of his fears are unfounded, but very likely has PTSD. He's on record on old /leftypol/ as saying the reason he still spends so much time here is because he basically is a Communist now, or at least considers us to be correct, but he still hates Black people. To an extent it's partially a character because we all found him hilarious when he first started posting and he's still pretty funny now. I respect his dedication to the bit and see him as just a fixture of /leftypol/. It's plausible that he could just be a shitposting commie but it seems too far gone for it to be that.
>>389332 >>389362 >Whitness is just a social construct that can be changed at whim. No. I know people like to say that the Irish weren't considered white, but that too is false. 9 Irishmen signed the Declaration of Independence. If Irishmen weren't classed as white they wouldn't have been allowed to do that. Anti Irish discrimination during the 19th century had nothing to do with race. It was about a group of immigrants coming in an competing with native born workers for low skilled jobs, and also them being Catholic instead of protestant. So no; Mezitzos and Asians won;t ever become white.
>>389362 "Race" as a whole was made up to break up the workers.

I'm new to reading theory and Marxism-Leninism in general. Even the manifesto seems a little daunting. Is Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung a good introduction or is it just for Maoists?

>>393098 The criticism Bland is presenting is directed towards the lolbert notion that market mechanisms operate as a form of "economic voting" and that prices serve as a "signal" for what is wanted in society. Bland argues that "demand", as described in the analysis he critiques, is really something he calls "effective demand", which is just the amount of money that consumers with money are willing to spend. "Demand", in Bill's argument, does not refer exactly to the "demand" in the concept "supply and demand", but instead the average of the wants of the population. With the example of people protesting for bread, Bland maintains that, unless the protestors had money, there would be no "effective demand" - demand that the market system actually cares about. Bland then argues that, because production is oriented towards "effective demand" and not the wants or needs of society, irrational shit like empty houses and a homeless population exist because housemakers are not building houses to address society's wants or needs but instead "effective demand" (housemakers are producing for profit). This paragraph essentially explains the difference between production for profit (capitalism) and production for use (socialism). Further examples demonstrate the validty of Bland's statements. Take, for example, extortionate practices such as price gouging, in which companies raise the prices of commodities that are suddenly highly wanted because it maximizes profit, even when there is sufficient supply, or how some companies will take a product and essentially repackage and sell it at higher prices. Capitalism is a system that encourages the production and selling of any kind of commodity regardless of its utility to society. This is why GDP/c is a shitty metric for the standard of living. More GDP/c exists when a healthcare system involves unnecessary transactions fostered by bloodsucking insurance companies than when a healthcare system is highly subsidized or is paid-for by the consumer directly. More GDP/c also exists when people buy cars enmasse to get to work rather than use public transporation. Hope this helps
>>392292 Red Book is good but you'd benefit from having a grasp on Marx, Lenin and Stalin first. Try this instead. Nest introductory text there is: https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1847/11/prin-com.htm
>>393190 Thank you based anon.
>>393098 Look at what is happening today. There wasn't a Thanos snap that just removed half the population, it's just that people have no pay check, therefore no money, therefore they can't pay their rent. Or look at what's been happening for years in places like London and LA and New York. There's huge demand for affordable housing, but the profit is in building luxury apartments for oligarchs as an investment. So the luxury apartments are built and homelessness remains.
>>392355 >Principles of Communism Yeah, the text Marx and Engels scrapped after realizing that communism maybe shouldn't be framed as a sect.

Soviet usenet posts during August Coup Anonymous 03/19/2020 (Thu) 03:36:10 No. 376661 [Reply] [Last]

What are your thoughts on Anarcho Transhumanism, and it's many other branching ideologies, as a Transhumanist myself I would gladly hear your thoughts on the subject.

>>397176 If we are to ascend it will be into sturdier bodies than mere flesh could provide. Immortal machine bodies should be a goal for trans-humanists , but this will be hundreds of years away at best.
>>397177 I'm not to keen on the idea of consciousness transfer (if it is even possible). Replace everything else with machine parts except the brain? Sure. But I doubt the transferred consciousness will be the same one as our current one, meaning we'd be basically killing ourselves. Maybe I'm just selfish, but I don't care if this copy of mine will be immortal, I will be dead anyway. Also immortality it self is a bit dubious. Society matters more than the individual, and I would argue that one in which people die will be less stagnant than one populated by eternal neo baby boomers.
>>397191 replace every neuron in your brain with a mechanical one over time, ship of thesus style
>>396147 Not him, but how I understand it they put it on first place, seeing redefining humanity on an individual and collective level through it as a revolutionary act. In addition, their critique of "vanilla" and libertarian transhumanism relies on the usual anarchist principles of questioning the authority of the state and corporations. These topics are particularly significant to transhumanism, considering how much power just basic smartphones and IT have given businesses and government actors to track, profile, and manipulate people. Obviously these problems would only get catastrophically worse, if conditions like our current have a chance at literally entering and integrating with our bodies. Not to mention how Monsanto and their kin are working on patenting DNA and trying to lay claim on life itself. While I see transhumanism rather than a movement as being more of a loose discussion about the implications and possibilities of the future, it's at least on a certain level comforting to know that there's a faction which critiques Pinker-like blind liberal tech-optimism.
