If we can convince Hiroshima Nagasaki, 4chan's owner, to switch from a Google Captcha to a Baidu Captcha we can displace all of the American and European reactionaries from the website with sheer numbers. Mainland Chinese are unable to use the Google Captcha. It is very important that we do not let the reactionaries congregate there after Trump loses.

is Maduro unironically a bad president? Anonymous 07/04/2020 (Sat) 05:02:12 No. 665523 [Reply] [Last]
hear me out before you get hysterical and start accusing me of being an imperialist spreading CIA propaganda. I know that the global economy has a history of abusing sanctions on socialist states like in Chile and Cuba (and even the Eastern Bloc really) in the Cold War era but I don't know if we can honestly say that this is the same. first of all Chavez didn't seem to trigger quite the same kind of reaction that you would expect towards other socialist presidents before his time -- probably because the global economy got deregulated under the Reagan-Thatcher era -- so he was able to peacefully build up his economy with European-style social democratic policies, up until the oil market crashed that Venezuela relied on, causing the recession that Maduro inherited. I'm sure sanctions are contributing to some of Venezuela's problems but why weren't they an issue under the Chavez presidency? I think to blame it all on the global economy and sanctions only paints half the picture. for example why doesn't Maduro even bother to lift the price controls on international corporations that are left over from the pre-crash Chavez economy? there's no way that this policy could be benefiting the Venezuelan economy in any way, and it most definitely taints it, and yet those price controls are still there.

>>667345 >give them to people in your government What are you talking about, Venezuela has very robust ground up democracy. Maduro has a larger majority than any western leader. The working class is in control of the government in Venezuela. Like I said, petty personal corruption does not change that. Also fuck it, even if Maduro was directly receiving drug money, which is isn't, that would not justify the western aggression towards him. >>668435 No, they are not. Independent international observers did not think so. https://venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/13899 >>668456 International observers have on numerous occasions in fact said Venezuelas electoral system is more robust and less prone to foul play than many western democracies. >>668526 look at the above source i gave
>>668526 >The Electoral Integrity Project is an academic project based at Harvard University and the University of Sydney which seeks to quantify the integrity of elections worldwide. The project freely publishes its Perceptions of Electoral Integrity dataset for scholarly use. The most recent data release (PEI 6.0) covers 285 elections in 164 countries from mid 2012 to the end of 2017. The founding Director is Pippa Norris. >The project received media attention in 2016 when it ranked the United States last among western nations.One of the project's International Advisory Board, Andrew Reynolds, a political science professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, noted in the Raleigh-based News and Observer that his home state's election integrity score was similar to Cuba, Indonesia and Sierra Leone. The study ranked integrity of the state's congressional districts lowest in the nation just below similar outlier Wisconsin. An editorial in the Wall Street Journal ridiculed the study, noting that "Democracy in New York (which scored a 61) and Virginia (60) is supposedly more imperiled than in Rwanda (64), though Rwanda is controlled by an autocrat. The worst-performing state, Arizona (53), is outranked by Kuwait (55), Ivory Coast (59) and Kyrgyzstan (54)." Dylan Matthews writing in Vox agreed that "it seems foolish to infer from that that the US is less of a democracy than Rwanda" but felt that the EIP had highlighted important issues such as gerrymandering and voter registration laws. >Statistician Andrew Gelman had a negative view of the PEI Index, commenting that "[it] all seems like an unstable combination of political ideology, academic self-promotion, credulous journalism, and plain old incompetence", noting among other things that the EIP's 2014 data release has previously given the North Korean parliamentary election an 'electoral integrity' score of 65.3 and Cuba 65.6, higher than elections in EU members Romania and Bulgaria. Norris addressed the controversy in two long replies to Gelman, noting that her team had subsequently dropped the North Korean election from the dataset. Gelman, however, questioned her justification for this removal and continued to question the EIP's methodology more generally https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_Integrity_Project this electoral integrity project is a wild ride lads. They think North Korea is a democracy which is is but not Venezuela??? They must be seriosuly high on some absolutely poten anarcho- juche ideology or something I can't tell, do we trust them or not? Calling North Korea more democratic than America seems based to me lads. But OP you should send this back to your friends, see what they think about it when you tell them this same metric thinks North Korea and Cuba are based democracies
>>668526 Now, as for the article itself, fuck me. Lets start: >approximately six million voters decided to reelect Maduro, with a turnout of 46%, the lowest in the Venezuelan democratic history. The 2016 American election had a 55.7% turn out, and that was a HUGE election, in 1996 the turn out was 49%, historically it has been much lower than this. http://www.electionguide.org/countries/id/231/ here is some general stats on Veneuzuelan election turn out, as you can see, Venezuela has a generally extremely high turn out. An average of 61%. What happened in the recent election is that the opposition boycotted the election. They were never going to win the election, and this move was basically throwing the toys out the pram. They then proceeded to say they weren't allowed to take part and the western media parroted this, that was a lie, they boycotted it. So, turn out goes from an average of 61% to 46%. A difference of 25%. 25% of the vote is basically what the opposition gets. You can't boycott an election and then say the turn out proves it wasn't democratic.

>>661714 As a Zapadnik who lived in Russia, this is patently false. Russia does have a history of authoritarianism baked into its institutions (which can be traced back to the russian princes using the mongols to destroy medieval urban democratic assemblies called "Veche". If anything I would say quite the opposite: Russians are a very free-minded people. What they ARE good at is ACCEPTING Authoritarian rule under one proviso: they, as an individual, can break the rules set. Russians are crafty (tbh most slavs are, it's an outcome of dispersed rural life in europe that peoples that live in it because creative with resources), and if there is a rule they will find a way to skirt around it. Now ofc if you think you're gonna get caught, you keep to the rules, but if not, then fuck it. The police aren't here. It's actually one of the reasons that lockdown has been met with such resistance in Russia. I'm a bong, we are also an authoritarian society. People accepted the rules here because we have a culture of "fairness", aka that we will accept being stamped on as long as everyone is doing it equally or we deserve it (we are such fucking masochists but that's another point). Russia, however, the "genetically servile", HATED the lockdown rules, THere were riots in ossetia and people joining the now infamous Soviet Citizen movement because they believed Corona was fake. Why? Because I can't break lockdown rules. They're too strict, and require neigh-universal adherence to work. So yeah, russians aren't servile, they actively break rules: but only so they don't get caught and IMO in a kinda individualistic manner. |That's just my views of it.

The Communist Pact is a socialist federation of groups and channels that seeks propagation of marxist revolutionary content from theory to praxis. We also seek propagation of content related to the emancipation of socialist countries and third world countries, therefore, delegitimizing western propaganda. https://telegra.ph/List-of-Current-Members-of-the-Federation-07-03 (List of groups and accounts taking part) Thoughts on them?

Kevin MacDonald's Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements All you have to read is the prologue qrd and brief reviews at https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-culture-of-critique-kevin-macdonald/1113698168 > MacDonald provides a theoretical analysis and review of data on the widespread tendency among highly influential, Jewish-dominated intellectual movements to develop radical critiques of gentile culture that are compatible with the continuity of Jewish identification. These movements are viewed as the outcome of the fact that Jews and gentiles have different interests in the construction of culture and in various public policy issues (e.g. immigration policy, Israel). Several of these movements attempt to combat anti-Semitism by advocating social categorization processes in which the Jew/gentile distinction is minimized in importance. There is also a tendency to develop theories of anti-Semitism in which ethnic differences and resource competition are of minimal importance. From the perspective of the intellectual structures developed by these movements, anti-Semitism is analyzed as an indication of psychopathology among gentiles. In some cases, these movements appear to be attempts to develop a fundamental restructuring of the intellectual basis of gentile society in ways conducive to the continued existence of Judaism. Particular attention is paid to Boasian anthropology, psychoanalysis, leftist political ideology and behavior, and the Frankfurt School of Social Research. Each of these movements can be characterized as an authoritarian political movement centered around a charismatic leader who strongly identified as a Jew and who was idolized by his disciples who were also predominantly Jewish. Regarding immigration policy, Jewish political and intellectual activity was motivated less by a desire for higher levels of Jewish immigration than by opposition to the implicit theory that America should be dominated by individuals with northern and western European ancestry. Jewish policy was aimed at developing an America charcterized by cultural pluralism and populated by groups of people from all parts of the world rather than by a homogeneous Christian culture and populated largely by people of European descent. This is a controversial analysis of particular interest to those concerned with evolutionary approaches to human behavior, with Judaica, and with an evolutionary perspective on history and psychology.
Interview With Chairman Gonzalo is a solid introduction to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. Within the first chapter or so it does away with the confusion which often surrounds terms like "principally Maoist", and it also doubles as a neat summary of the PCP's history up until that point. It's pretty easy to read and around 100 pages or so. Alternatively, if you want something even shorter, check out this little blogpost: https://jiminykrix.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/what-maoism-has-to-offer-the-world-and-why-so-many-former-non-communists-think-its-dope/
