How to covert right wingers to Marxism Anonymous 01/05/2020 (Sun) 22:28:39 No. 199451 [Reply] [Last]
How to convert former fringe right wingers to Marxism 101: Profit gives people that are not part of the political state an insane amount of power to follow their own interests. --> Because they got money from non politics related ways, these interests are bad for the nation. Can these capitalists in theory also do good things with this money? Yes. But very likely they wont so why instead of gambling, just remove that option. If these "good" capitalists are, by chance, nationalists, they will voluntarily surrender their private property to the nation. If not, then they dont have the best interests for the nation in mind. In Marxist terms, personal property is stuff you use yourself for your own personal wants and needs. Private property is property that you own in order to extract value from other laborers so like a capitalist owning the means of production. Unfortunately this causes too much power in a small amount of people and you get the situation which is today

>>199451 You don't. A sensible goal is to move everyone one step to the left while blocking, isolating our enemies. Make the passive opposition neutral, make neutrals passive supporters, activate passive supporters, and radicalize the actives. I'm afraid I do not have the pic with this idea drawn on it. I'd appreciate it greatly if someone could post it. As I see it, there is little point in attempting to convert the other extreme, their radicalism is entrenched and they surely will not listen to their perceived enemies. One might theoretically trick them to ask the right questions from themselves. After all, we all love to hear our own thoughts on matters. But, such efforts are relatively costly when compared to the masses of more willing audience one could convince. >>199465 The danger is in them potentially becoming """anti-capitalists""" like the nazis of old. I've started to see the appropriation of left-wing talking points by fascists recently, which has raised my concern. A shift from "we'll protect freedom and capitalism from those commies" to "we'll protect your community from (((capitalism))) and (((communism)))". Those snakes lie, twist, bend, and pervert anything and everything if it happens to be popular and convenient to them.
>>199456 Yeah don't call it private property. Call it corporate property or something.
>>199472 hey, nice to see my work being spread
>>199741 this. no matter how hard we try, those /pol/tards don't get that personal property isn't private property.
>>199741 >>199456 Maybe don't call it "property" at all. Maybe we should find a better term that encapsulates the idea of absentee ownership and preventing people from working to live unless they let you take what's basically rent out of their earnings.

So, is imperialism still the primary contradiction? Strikes me that one could argue that imperialist actions from Russia, the US and China are proving less antagonistic than the internal contradictions within smaller states. What say you?

How should Marxists view fiat currency, or more specifically, whether or not fiat currency disproves the LTV? during Marx's era, 1 pound = x amount of gold = x amount of commodity A, but now, there's no gold to equate the pound to. What would be a Marxian economic analysis of modern money and how does it relate to the Value of commodities?
>>199427 I don't see how fiat currency would contradict or conflict with ltv, care to elaborate?
Debtor has to pay principal plus interest and lenders are free to liquefy such contract by selling it as bond or part of derivative with relatively low risk/discount as most modern states will provide barrage of legal weapons for debt collectors. To theorylet like me LTV is nothing more than nerdy way of claiming why being bourgeois is rent seeking. In that sense I am not sure what prevents one from reading parallel between debt based economy and wage labour based one.

Well /leftypol/, it's close to the end of the decade. Now is the time to reflect on the state of the left, our failures/successes over the past decade, and how the world has changed. Here are some important things that happened during the decade that you can comment on (feel free to add anything that you feel I missed): >Slow recovery from the Global Financial Meltdown >Death of Kim Jong-il >Eurozone Crisis >Tea Party >Deepwater Horizon >Bin Laden killed >Israel's brutal operations in Gaza. >Kony 2012 >LIBOR Scandal >François Hollander elected in France >Arab Spring >Obama's Airstrikes >NATO Intervention in Libya >ISIS Spreading through the ME

>>192663 Damn,the ccp needs to step up their game and make some party cadre cosplay as Misato.
The three greatest stories of the decade are: A. The climate apocalypse has arrived. B. Rate of profit continues falling, Capital's self-destruction accelerates. C. Quasi-fascist garrison politics are on the rise. Civilization is headed toward barbarism. All it takes now is just a couple more 2015-style refugee waves (inevitable thanks to ecological collapse), and/or a big 9/11-style terrorist attack. In either case, the capitalist metropole is in secular decline. The transition to a planned economy is inevitable, the only question is whether it will be done by socialists, by a paternalist military junta, or by eco-fascists. My money's on the second option.

Start your own org and make it free to join. Find like minded people and figure out local problems to solve that the current system hasn't. Solve those problems according to your abilities. Establish reciprocity where instead of paying, people who are helped are encouraged to pay back by helping others in the community however they can do it. If people are food insecure, make food gardens for example.

>>198934 >but Maistre doesn't pull that noble savage stuff Engels doesn't do this either, and for him development of slavery is a progressive development. Rousseau makes moral claims in regards to the "natural state" of man, while Engels does no such thing. >Back then, they were obsessed with the 'New World' and trying to find a blank slate and study the 'savages' as primitive man. De Maistre will give you a good commentary on this topic. Engels wasn't attempting to find a "blank slate", but rather study the development of the family throughout human history and it's the emergence of it's modern incarnation.
>>198979 >Engels doesn't do this either, and for him development of slavery is a progressive development Fairly stated. >Engels wasn't attempting to find a "blank slate" Regardless, I said that they were similar. If not in how they approach the problem, then in what they make of it. For example, Engels states in that screencap that 'the state' was invented.
>>199005 >Engels states in that screencap that 'the state' was invented. As a consequence of the development of history, it was.
