>>663012 You think upper-middle class suburbanites leaving the lights off, not mowing their laws, or buying an electric SUV is going to save us? Maybe you should check the actual ecological footprint of all this "ethical consumption". And again relying on petite-bouj/PMC consoomers to stop climate change is like relying on porkies to abolish capitalism. Greenhouse emissions overwhelmingly originate from a tiny percentage of the world population, so telling the rest of us to "live frugally" to "make a difference" is not only fucking insulting, it's outright wrong.

>>663051 >You think upper-middle class suburbanites leaving the lights off, not mowing their laws, or buying an electric SUV is going to save us? It might. Ecological crisis is not linear, we have reasons to believe there may be an eventual qualitative change in the destruction once enough damage has accumulated. No one can guess where those thresholds might be. Solutions require systemic change, but in the meantime, every small thing matters. >Maybe you should check the actual ecological footprint of all this "ethical consumption". Irrelevant, as consumer demand for "ethical" goods does not come on top of everything else but replaces part of it. The efficiency trap isn't generally applicable here. The opportunity to market greenwashed products also got porky to develop actual viable sustainable technologies, that would be worth tons even if the physical net effect so far was harmful. >>663974 turns out progress toward being eventually able to stop burning oil under capitalism requires consooming our way into market incentives for developing new technology. since you can't go back in time and do the revolution thirty years ago, we're a lot better off having done something rather than nothing.

i mean, Kropotkin was a prince of a slave owning monarchy when he completely rejected the regime and became a anarchist communist, rejecting both the exploitation and oppression of his family, then he got imprisoned, escaped and got banished for years until he returned to his homeland when it was finally freed, a lot of parallels with Mozes, also Makhno before the Russian civil war was the leader of a robin hood like group, these people are surprisingly similar to famous stories, also dont forget Lenin and his revenge story leading the greatest revolution Russia has seen after his brother got killed in a assassination attempt on the tsar

With the new influx of visitors it seemed the right time to start a brand new thread about Posadism. For those who have not heard or know about Posadism, it is well known Trot sect that found its Origins in Argentina by J. Posadas. To further get indulged into the ideology basic reading will be provided below of some of his selected works http://quatrieme-internationale-posadiste.org/pdf_texte/EN/FutureOfHumanity.pdf http://quatrieme-internationale-posadiste.org/pdf_texte/EN/JP-Childbearing-in-space-JP-final.pdf http://quatrieme-internationale-posadiste.org/pdf_texte/EN/JP-Flying-Saucers-JP-final.pdf http://quatrieme-internationale-posadiste.org/pdf_texte/EN/JP-Flying-Saucers-JP-final.pdf http://quatrieme-internationale-posadiste.org/book_pdf/EN/1_whatisasoviet.pdf If there are any other questions I would be happy to inform you with any and all dumbass questions my fellow comrades may ask as I know they will be coming.

The protests are based in the sense that they're resistance to PRC imperialism, but the American interference is cringe. If you unironically think China is a socialist force in the world, kill yourself. Literally the only response Xiposters know to any criticism of China is "muh CIA glowblack king" and then they pull the sinophobe card. The way they accuse you of sinophobia for criticising China is the exact same tactic that Israel uses in the face of critics. >noooo but some ML e-whore on twitter told me china is based!!!! Leftists that defend China are as cancer as the reactionaries that stan Poland and the Christcucks that stan Israel. China is not your friend. China literally funds the Filipino government in their war against Maoists over there and they also helped India crack down on Naxalites iirc. If you live outside of America, China is probably trying to increase their influence there, whether its through Chinese real estate investors buying up properties or buying parts of your country's territory to build ports in.
>>663756 They have conflicting interests, but at the same time they are also stuck being China's neighbors or near neighbors. Realistically, just to match China, all of them have to stick together, and then they are in the unenviable position of being a dispersed coalition going against a unified opponent occupying the central position. Those are not winning cards, and as time goes on it's more likely that at least some of those opponents will accommodate China rather than confront it, making the potential coalition even less attractive, leading to more defections along the line. Not to mention that many of the more powerful opponents are also checked by Chinese allies - Pakistan, Myanmar and the DPRK. For this reason I don't think we will get a counterbalancing coalition, though that would certainly be the best outcome for the US. Of course it's possible that miscalculations and escalations lead to a conflict that China wins, but at the cost of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs (integration in global economy and importation of raw materials via sea routes), before the OBOR checks that possibility. But for that you need to find a willing kamikaze country first.

Is America encoded into the "DNA" of modern capitalism? Anonymous 07/02/2020 (Thu) 21:58:12 No. 662123 [Reply] [Last]
Basically, from everything I've seen America is more intertwined with Capital than any imperialist hegemon in history. American greenbacks are the life-blood of modern capitalism, American militarism are its muscles, and for a long-time American finance capital was the brain. Modern capitalism can almost be called "Americanism" for how much of itself the US put into the construction of the new capitalist world system following the World Wars. Can it be argued that modern capitalism is synonymous with US dominance? Is the US the beating heart at the core of 21st Century capitalist imperialism?

>>662144 So it is only supremely fitting that the end of neoliberalism coincides with the end of US hegemony?
>>662123 Yes. If we thanos snapped the americans capitalism would still exist, but it would be qualitatively different than how it currently exists. Just because neoliberalism, fascism, socdem, etc are all reactionary, capitalist ideologies does not mean they are identical.
>>662123 Yeah. The current capitalism is America flavored.

No, not really, the US ruling class and their machinations of power and influence is more of a stalling mechanism, that hinders the world from moving on. America technically is a continent of which the US is a part off. Even if you take America to mean the US, then the majority of the US population does not, and never has support(ed) the neo-liberal project either. Neo-liberalism has always been a minoritarian project to re-impose financialisation on the world by means of blackmail and terror, and represents a regression from the post WW2 soc-dem version of semi nationalised capitalism. American flavored capitalism probably ends in the mid 80s, the capitalism we have now has a residual elements of that, but it's become a mostly flavourless horror.
