"The USSR isn't/wasn't socialist because it didn't fit my hypothetical imagined society that exists in my head" Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 21:42:33 No. 883572 [Reply] [Last]
On the one hand we have reality which was the USSR On the other hand we have the perfect ideal utopia that exists in my mind Is it not the essence of anti-materialism to say that reality is wrong for not conforming to the ideas in my head? I understand why anarchists do this, but why do marxists do so as well? Is it not easier to recognize the USSR as a flawed socialism? Based Dickblast got my back

USR was socialism is therefor CCCCCP was socialisms :DD
Too pussy to defend USSR, usually.
>>884051 You need to be retarded to try to separate the destination from the journey, and few people "criticizing" USSR and/or socialism are actually interested in the distinction.

Why didn't the Roman Empire industrialize and develop capitalism?

>>882123 It was part of the thesis that I wrote for my Imperial Roman History class when I was working on my major, but I would not even know where to look without the university's resources anymore. The Wikipedia article on Roman Egypt describes what is essentially capitalist farming in Egypt without any sources, and all the actual books I have on the period are just political crap like Tacitus, Cassius Dio, and Suetonius. Sorry, my google-fu is weak. Now you have me curious. I need to dig a bit.
>>878890 overreliance on slave and a corrupt and decadent upper class who kept partying and didn't gave a fuck even when barbarians were plundering Rome to the point where barbarian Romeaboos had more interest in Rome's well-being than the former ruling class itself.
>>882663 You don't give classical thinkers enough credit. The ones who did actual study of the physical world, as opposed to the platonic idealists, came up some futuristic stuff, most of which (eg. the entire collection of works by Epicurus) managed to not survive for some reason. Hmm... The more important question is, "What would Classical Romans have hooked a steam engine to?" There was nothing like the medieval Dutch wool industry in Classical Rome, no significant landless proletariat to exploit.
>>882811 There was quite literally waged labor in Rome and the term proletariat is Roman in origin The classical thinkers were smart, but they simply did not have the requisite knowledge
>>882070 >Caesar actually planned to carry out many reforms which would've benefitted the people before Roman elites killed him. Interesting, what kind of reforms?

Левое движение России в становлении. Общество до сих пор находится в апатии, индифферентно относится к политике, но число интересующихся идеологиями левого политического спектра растёт. Отдельно вспыхивают протесты, народ крайне раздражён пенсионной реформой, ковидным карантином и скачками курса рубля. Общество тлеет, а вот левые всё в том же болоте, что и год, и два назад. Гоблин как обычно ведёт разведопросы, Кага проводит стримы с дочкой, Садонин клепает научпоп, Сёмин шлёпает агитпропы как горячие пирожки. Вырваться из Ютуб-западни удалось только Платошкину, чтобы затем попасть в западню другого плана. Итак, вот наши основные положения: # Кружки не нужны. Сегодня не конец XIX века и не начало ХХ, социалистическая литература не запрещена, а жандармы не избивают рабочих и не ссылают социалистов в Сибирь. Интернет завален книгами, хочешь образовываться - качай литературу и читай. Хочешь действовать - сразу вступай в партию, которой нет, так что мути свою, лол. # Левые в России представляют собой пёструю, но на самом деле несложную мешанину. Вот они: 1) Сталинисты: танкиз, порномарксисты, красконы, политштурмовцы - это всё они. Вовсе не обязательно за крепкую руку и вождизм, просто положительно относятся к Сталину - это очень важно. Вообще, это уникальная особенность российской политики - плевать что ты говоришь о нынешнем моменте, главное как ты интерпретируешь прошлое. В целом для сталинистов характерны конкретные разговоры об экономике и истории, это первичные, ключевые для них моменты. 2) Левые западного типа: троцкисты, неомарксисты, фрейдомарксисты, демсоцы, люксембургианцы - за равенство здесь и сейчас. Левее сталинистов, но, как правило, выступают за заимствования всяческих ноу-хау у капиталистов. Делают упор на личности, не могут жертвовать индивидом для пользы общества в отличие от сталинистов. Уничтожат мир из-за слезинки ребёнка. Имеют обострённое чувство справедливости. 3) Леволибералы, СЖВ, Зелёные, Соцдемы - из-за глобализации в Россию местами проникает западный политический дискурс, где левыми радикалами считаются эти в целом безобидные у нас товарищи. Представляют собой довольно большую массу жителей городов, потенциально способны мутировать в левого первого или второго типа. 4) Анархисты - рассеяны, сидят тихо после недавних событий. Но наверняка развернутся на полную катушку, как только режим падёт, ибо русский народ богат на буйные головы и всегда сочуствовал парням вроде Разина и Пугачёва. Будем посмотреть. # Экономика: должна быть левой. Это признают все, даже Навальный незадолго до отравления начал перенимать левый популизм провалившегося Сандерса. Но в какой степени левой должна быть экономика? Просто некие социальные гарантии или полная социализация? А что же БОД? Вводить или нет, не угробит ли он экономику? Есть несколько вариантов: 1)ММТ (Моdern Monetary Theory) - новая теория(на самом деле ей уже лет 20) от английского профессора экономики. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcNfElL0-Ho[РАСКРЫТЬ] Представляет собой по сути тот же социальный капитализм, сильно зарегулированный и с проциклической монетарной и фискальной политикой. 2)Новая теория израильских экономистов Нитцана и Бихлера. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsUS3ynhAKY[РАСКРЫТЬ] Их программа: Заставить банки списать уже существующие перед ними долги. Отменить процентную ставку. Которая и толкает всю логику накопления и перепроизводства. Запилить кредитование по принципу исламских банков - когда банк не требует с тебя в определённый срок определённой суммы, а забирает процент с твоей прибыли - т.е. является скорее твоим со-партнёром, терпящим неудачи вместо с тобой, а не жадным пидорасом, желающим погасить твои невыплаты твоим имуществом или почками. Ввести demurrage currency. Ввести БОД. 3) Есть ещё один путь - Госплан, Киберсин и прочие проекты на блокчейне и нейросетях. Но твёрдой теории под ними пока нет.

Might as well start a thread about this. I just ran through a pdf search on all of Marx and Engels' works for "own the means" and it came out (shockingly, if you are an RDW fag), that neither of them advocated for such a thing. Literally one result, lol. Spoopy. Kinda makes you think about Proudhonist/RDW-tier "workers own the MoP" vs. Marxist "socialization of production." It's almost as if 90% of the so called "radical left" today was merely a LARPING faggot, or something. It's almost as if Marx was a statist, or something as well.

Libertarians: Misguided or Malicious? Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 01:04:06 No. 880872 [Reply] [Last]
A pretty lefty friend of mine is adamant that the left could collaborate with libertarians. His logic: they're anti-war, a lot of them are anti-Wall Street/anti-bank, and could be persuaded to adopt left-leaning stances (i.e. universal healthcare). He also says Assange considering himself a libertarian is proof that we can collaborate with them. This got me thinking: what's the deal with libertarians? Could they be allies? Do they make some good points? Are they angry at the right things but wrong about the causes? Are they retards who aren't worth engaging, or maybe even worth opposing? Thoughts?

Whether they're just a retard or a genuinely terrible person varies from libertarian to libertarian, but it's also irrelevant. Their actions bring harm to humanity, so they must be culled.
