>>1175294 It isn't just the storage cost. You can think up some ebin demand curve, with different potential consumers right now having a different price maximum they would tolerate. But since you aren't offering a service, you can't really charge one price to one guy and a totally different price to another guy, not on a big scale at least. People can buy and resell your stuff. So, imagining we actually have a good estimate curve of this willingness to buy this or that amount at the moment at this or that alternative price and imagining we can't segment people to make them different offers, but just have one price for all, you can see that forcing yourself to make the price so low that you sell everything can yield a lower total sum than selling at a higher price and having to destroy some stock. This is a general problem with profit-oriented production. (In a labor-voucher system, the point is to get the stuff to people, so you lower the prices as much as necessary for that instead of destroying the stuff.) If your market is oligopolistic, you have to also consider that you influence the typical prices, you condition people to expect that this amount is just the price that this kind of thing costs and that they put aside in their budget. You can piss off some people more by making something cheaper for a while and then getting back to the old price than by never lowering the price.

Like holy fuck it's like these NPC cunts come straight off a conveyor belt, I hate them so much. These fucking scum basically LARP as though they were around in the 60s in the USSR when 90% of the time they're just degenerate burgers who never lived in the USSR going off the recollections of their kulak-brained parents who were usually something like seven years old when the USSR fell These fucking baboons do everything they can to warp the narrative, making it seem like the mainstream position in Russia is hatred of Stalin and worship of Hitlet What is it about burgerism that utterly poisons the brains of immigrants and makes their spawn even more retarded and burgerfied than even the average american?

(And Stalin’s was Dzhugashvili. Many Bolsheviks took new surnames.) It’s just that a lot of the former soviet diaspora population were jewish immigrants since the 1970s at earliest, and more and more soviet jews came to the United States up until the collapse.

Could all workers join together in one union? Not tied to specific area of work or region. This would allow action throughout the whole country/all sectors of the economy. Why's this a bad idea and why hasn't it been done? How could you get people to join an organization like this?

Speaking of unions, are there any unions in the US that arent dumb? I want to learn a trade, like plumbing.
>>1156419 They're not composed primarily of feds (from what I can tell), but they got their asses handed to them by the feds during the First and Second Red Scares. To be fair, that happened to pretty much every leftist group in the United States during the same periods.
>>1154277 If the aim of the Union was to replace the state, GREAT IDEA. If the aim of the Union was to negotiate wages, hours and benefits with Capital, FUCK THAT. Now, be honest with me and with yourself. Which aim were you intending with this question?

Voldemort represents Communism, ever since the 2016 US Elections, liberals have been eager to compare to Trump to all sorts of things: Adolf Hitler, President Reagan, and even Lord Voldemort. I am here to tell /leftypol/ that these comparisons are mistaken, as I will explain throughout the rest of this post. Voldemort's life and ideology actually have more in common with Lenin, Stalin, and that of the Soviet Union. Here is my reasoning: 1) At the beginning of Tom Riddle's journey into the Wizarding world, he is a very poor orphan with extreme talents in magic that were very unusual, far beyond the likes of mere charlatans like Hitler and Reagan. He considers death a "human weakness", as in, a contradiction innate to all men that he wished to overcome after suffering the death of his mother. He recognizes this contradiction, but does not yet recognize how to overcome it. His talented side mirrors Stalin's talents in religious knowledge as a young boy. His struggle mirrors Lenin and the death of his brother 2) In Tom Riddle's sixth year, he questioned Professor Horus Slughorn about a key to immortality, the Horcrux. this is considered forbidden, but known, knowledge by "high-ranking" individuals who were considered "loyal" to the traditions of the Wizarding world. Knowledge that would resolve the problems caused by death. Might I suggest this is most similar to the knowledge of Communism? Communism seeks to resolve the effects of exploitation by sublating them under a new system, one that requires class struggle and blood sacrifice. The horror on Professor Slughorn's face when Tom Riddle poses the question could basically be put in the context of a student asking a question about Communism to Slughorn's muggle, liberal counterpart. 3) After Tom Riddle discovers the Horcrux (Communism) he develops a new admiration for magic, putting it on a higher pedestal than he could've possibly imagined before. Historical necessity was calling to him. That is, the historical necessity of magic. The liberal interpretation of Harry Potter is that the muggles are, to put it bluntly, ethnics. But this couldn't be further from the truth. The muggles are in a privilidged caste of society that oppresses Witches and Wizards, forcing them into hiding and doing everything in their power to stop the development and integration of magic into the world. Tom Riddle comes to a fateful conclusion: in order for immortality to blossom, Witches and Wizards must overthrow the muggles and become the ruling class in society, forming a Dictatorship of the Witches and Wizards where magic can be integrated into it. The dynamic between muggles and wizards mirrors that of the bourgoisie and the proletariat. 4) Tom Riddle traveled abroad and experimented on the Dark Arts for 10 years. pushed magic to farther boundaries than they ever have been pushed. He developed his ideology and theory in order for the great revolution that would push the world into the next era of civilization. Much like Marx and Lenin during their banishment. "I have experimented; I have pushed the boundaries of magic further, perhaps, than they have ever been pushed —" 5) Voldemort started the First Wizarding War by taking advantage of one of the wizarding world's greatest weaknesses: the beings and creatures that they had persecuted. Giants and werewolves. The oppressed and outcast. This is not unlike how the Bolsheviks used the Jews in Russian society to their advantage: the Jews had been subject to open harassment in the Russian empire for decades, peaking during the recession caused by WW1. Lenin knew how to speak to the oppressed and the forgotten. Those that wanted a better society for themselves and for everybody. 6) In spite of the Death Eater party's threat to the established order of the Wizarding world: that of ethnic segregation and chattel slavery, the status quo was soon restored by the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's army. The threat of Horcruxes and the violent outburts of the oppressed in wizarding society were soon considered to be extinguished and all but forgotten. Much like the Soviet Union and its ideology of Communism, which Capitalism and its ideologues believed defeated for the most part. Unless another wizard as powerful and ambitious as Voldemort should choose to discover it again...
