Does Kissinger provide any insightful geopolitical/IR-related knowledge or are his books full of spooks and neocon propaganda?
>>214786 Kissinger is a based pragmatist who just so happenes to be on American side, so I would guess so. I personally believe that any upcoming socialist power needs to look at him for inspiration on how to conduct foreign policy. Also he definitely wasn't a neocon. In fact neocons ruined a lot of his carefully set up plans (like his sponsorships for dictators) because they thought that was un-American and anti-liberty. Can't say much about him in the current day though, his mind may have been rotten by being so close to neocon power for many years.
>>216119 This. IR Realism is probably generally the most applicable paradigm of geopolitics IMO. You should also check out Mearsheimer.
>>216755 >>216119 Is his book On China worth a read?
>>214786 Is there any back to the claim thatHenry Kissinger lolled hard at the premiere of Chinatown and that it's his favourite movie?

>Kalakuta Republic was the name musician and political activist Fela Kuti gave to the communal compound that housed his family, band members, and recording studio. Located at 14 Agege Motor Road, Idi-Oro, Mushin, Lagos, Nigeria, it had a free health clinic, and recording facility. Fela declared it independent from the state ruled by the military junta after he returned from the United States in 1970.[1] The compound burned to the ground on February 18, 1977 after an assault by a thousand armed soldiers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalakuta_Republic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wz2jXHKa7TY >>215441 Sounds cringey, I know.

American Potential Anonymous 12/28/2019 (Sat) 04:33:08 No. 189673 [Reply] [Last]
A lot of Euros on here vastly underestimate the potential for American Communism. Frequently they make a big hubbub of Americans being somehow inherently reactionary or "backwards", whilst ignoring that the two largest Communist Revolutions on earth took place in backwards feudal states where leaders were assumed to have been divinely ordained. All things considered, the situation in America is quite conducive to Socialism: >Younger generation mostly priced out of good housing >Rampant epidemic of "deaths by despair" >Near non-existent social safety net >Completely failing infrastructure >Massive wealth disparity. In no other first world country are the contradictions of capital so evident. In no other western country is there such a blatant division between what the people actually want (healthcare, houses, higher pay, action on global warming) and what the ruling class institutes. Similarly, though the elite have tried to hide this fact from the world, America once had one of the most radical labor movements on earth. So why don't we see an equally powerful communist movement? Well there's a few factors that must be considered: >Boomer home ownership >COINTELPRO operations >Liberal obfuscation To go through each point briefly. The mass home ownership of the baby boomers means they were in essence made stakeholders of the country, they're interested in seeing it not burst into flames because they own property within the country. Younger generations are shut out of property inheritance and saddled with debt, and so we see Socialism become much more appealing to them. COINTELPRO operations meanwhile have done excellent work at wrecking and kind of paralegal organizing (both in the mafia and in left movements) Finally, liberals both obfuscate class issues by putting forward an image of the left as half-hearted Keynesians, and where they get involved in left movements they idiotically inject them with a purely middle class character.

Are Modern Companies Ponzi Schemes? Anonymous 01/18/2020 (Sat) 02:46:26 No. 218525 [Reply] [Last]
I noticed this in the company I work in. It started out as a fairly simple production of a media product, but gradually as the company grew, layers and layers of obfuscating bullshit grew around the same basic function. We have more buildings, more workers, we do a lot more day to day but materially what is actually being produced is the same as it ever was, in fact, at some point the team who actually produced the product got downsized by a good bit. There is no actual growth, only a sort of artificial growth of completely pointless bureaucracy and insider sub-contraction to do a bunch of nonsense that has minimal impact on anything in the real world. We've had like 12 new people come in to lead the company in a very short period of time, all changing basically nothing that can be seen. I think it works sort of like this. Investors give money in the hopes that the company will grow, and in response, the company pretends to grow by doing more meaningless labor, social media crap and outreach programs. Seeing this growth, this prompts more investment which means more profit which means that in a sense, the artificial growth became actual growth in profit. The cycle works forever as long as more people keep investing and nobody realizes that the growth of the company is founded solely on this cycle and not the production of a product. Is this a real tendency in the economy at large, or do I just work at a shitty mismanaged company?

bruh what you described is not a ponzi scheme. Ponzi scheme is a confidence trick where nothing actually get done/produced. What you are describing in the bloat of bureaucracy that infects every company. Someone mentioned this via the The Gervais Principle. https://www.metafilter.com/168565/sociopaths-clueless-and-losers But I guess you can also explain that the actual producers/content creators don't control the means of production and can't prevent this bloat from getting out of hand since it means less money and jobs for them.
>>218558 Or, Theranos, most recently. The fact is that companies like Uber, Deliveroo and all those 'app-service' companies are all like that. I imagine most of the social media giants are also like that but don't take my word for it.

>>218565 Relevant
So you are saying that in-house production go reduced and there are a bunch of tasks that got outsourced to subcontractors. Well that is sort of what mainstream economics prescribes. And yeah that is sort of structure similarly to a pyramid scheme. >I think it works sort of like this. Investors give money in the hopes that the company will grow, and in response, the company pretends to grow by doing more meaningless labor, social media crap and outreach programs. Seeing this growth, this prompts more investment which means more profit which means that in a sense, the artificial growth became actual growth in profit. Well i don't quite follow how this is supposed to work, they can't just declare investment as profit.
>>218578 Like weworks, they don't change their production but they get more investment, which makes them attractive to move investors which allows them to sort of "grow" to being a 47 billion dollar company without actually growing in any material sense.
