Welcome to /dead/, the endless magical nihilist gulag. This is not 8/grim/, but it is the continuation 8/grim/. Think of it as partly an /r9k/ for anti-capitalists, partly /GET/ with skeltals, and otherwise whatever you make of it. Now in thread form!

Didn't realize we had an annil flag option, is there a black flag hidden somewhere? Anyways after that nowing dude shit on memechin I've been looking to read some post-left and insurrectionary stuff, what would you reccomend besides tiqqun and Bob Black?
Is there reading list for post-left anarchism?

I’m quite disillusioned with humanity at this point. I reckon even if our only options are literally between socialism or barbarism most people will gladly choose the late.

>>217004 Easy solution is just to not go over to that guys place anymore. Bob Black is a fucking fed and a fake leftist
>>217013 I don't think it was as simple as that. I think Bob was trying to prove a point that you don't fuck with him. It's not like Jim was a revolutionary or that Bob toppled an entire organization.

I finally told my mother Im not religoius ( Marxism turned me into a materialist) and she's such a hypocrite lol. She basically uses spirituality to claim moral highground yet shes so fucking racist. She absolutely despises black people despite being black herself, shes litreally one of those people that has zero knowledge of history so her default belief is that black people are poor amd enferior or else they'd be "rich like the white man" Shit just leaves me feeling blackpilled and hopeless cos thats litreally what everyone he thinks. ( I live in south africa) people have an inferiority complex and everything is framed in terms of race cos wealth is mostly split across race. Nothing about class Even the ml party that uses red keeps things in terms of race. Sucks tbh
>>232395 What does she think about the land reform ?
>>232422 Nothing probably.
>>232424 Litreally nothing, like a lot of south Africans she remembers julius malema ( party leader) being a clown for the last 15 years of his political career She can be progressive if we're talking in a general sense. The rich suck, African countries are exploited by the West etc. I try to guide those conversations but litreally 2 hours later if you bring up any family friend or relative that lives in poverty it turns into bootstrap speeches She simultaneously liked ghaddafi, believes the rich is fucking us over bur still blames blacks and poor for their lot in life
How do you deal with neo-fascist coworkers? I have one and he makes me really uncomfortable.
>>233051 Ideally get friendly with them and redpill them. Alternatively ignore them. Basic science folks.

Anyways we made his work life shit, one of us threw away his lunch everyday and one guy (a black dude) fucked his gf and I punctured one of his tires once. He became more and more unhinged and eventually quit, probably writes reeeeeee posts on /pol/ now.
>>233304 > Anyways we made his work life shit, one of us threw away his lunch everyday and one guy (a black dude) fucked his gf and I punctured one of his tires once. Absolutely based.

>>233304 >Fucking a dogfucker That takes courage.
>>233662 it isn't just any man who's willing to stick his peen where a dog has been, why are so many whitewomen taking the dogpill bros
>>196945 They glow in the dark
>>233689 unironically probably something to do with the fact that white women are by far the demographic of young people who are the most secure economically and yet there is still all this superstructural stuff with regards to gender & marriage despite most of the base for it outside of property relations like inheritance being subsumed. The dog is basically a surrogate for a husband because there isn't any upward mobility for most of them through relationships becuase they have the best prospects. This is complete speculation on my part though, and I doubt the dogpill is a widespread phenomenon
>>233715 (me) Like from their perspective if they're going to be the dominant partner economically in a household/relationship and don't see any prospects for mobility then why would they bother? You combine that with the generally increasing alienation & atomization of workers that is affecting everyone and I guess they just think well fuck it at least a dog is loyal and the relationship is simple. I'd argue that dogfucking is just a symptom of a much bigger set of problems for people
>>233662 Actually they were gusanos, which is worse tbh.

>>233825 >when a gusano /pol/ack gets cucked leftists are da real cucks cope harder >>234221 Yeah, even if it wasn't a black guy it would have been hilarious. It was just that fag was so obsessed with race he would get mad if you called him latino, he insisted he was white and would agressivley correct people like (the strawman of) trannies and pronouns.

https://sub.media/video/hands-off-exarchia/ On July 8th, 2019, the New Democracy government of Kyriakos Mitsotakis assumed power in Greece, after campaigning on a promise to ‘clean up’ the central Athens neighbourhood of Exarchia, and ‘take it back’ from the anarchists. Since then, the Greek state has launched a renewed attack against the anarchist and self-organized migrant movements, targeting squats and promising future raids. Against this threat, Greek anarchists have responded with characteristic resolve and determination. Featuring interview with Pangiotis Varthalis of the squat Lelas Karagiannis 37 Translated by Boubouras (Act For Freedom Now) Download: https://archive.org/details/handsoffexarchia
>>242824 >Kyriakos Mitsotakis His dad or uncle was the Prime Minister of Greece, appalling nepotism. Not to mention the Karamanlis and Papandreou dynansties (Andreas Papandreou) sought to upgrade the telephone lines and sewage that havent been upgraded since the 19th century as well as offering Greek businesses subsidies to purchase equipment to increase production - the Greek bourgeois rorted that program. George Papandreou was an unironic neoliberal liberal. In any case Exarchia could have been targeted for gentrification whether its by local landlords, local cronies and nepotist or "foreign investors" from China or all of them. Stages of gentrification that I have noticed and I relate it to a once industrial area (albeit not in Greece) >Industry gets offshored leaving empty buildings >Remaining industry continues (small to medium wood working, metal working, ceramics etc) >Empty industrial spaces had gotten sold to developers for apartment blocks >Brand retailers opened >Cafes and restaurants opened, often charging premiums for their menu >Area had gotten denser >Rent reviews were excused as retailers, cafes and restaurants opened >People forced to move, even if the area is actually safe the rents gotten too expensive >Some yuppie cucks moved to enjoy the simple life, some stop being yuppie cucks altogether >Foreign bourgeois send their kids to study and seek cheap accommodation >Developers petition the council for more construction >Council with the increase in council rates complied >As it so happens the apartment blocks crack due to subpar construction and materials >Housing bubble

There could have been some use in his lectures on governmentality and security, if only they were as concrete as his writings about 19th century discipline. >Situationists People aren't alienated by the spectacle anymore but integrated into it, having themselves become performers. The creation of situations is part of the system now. Tiqqun is philosophy for young larpers and lifestylists, it's almost like youth counter-culture. Fortunately they're from France so they don't look so ridiculous amidst general rioting and protesting, but globally the insurrectionist model has failed. I suppose if you want to get in the mood to sabotage some train traffic reading Tiqqun is excellent, but the system itself does similar sabotage by accident, regularly and on a wider scale, and nothing ever happens.

>>295289 He had good takes on philosophy, psychology, sociology. He's a neo-Spinozist, appreciated Marx, is a post-structuralist that wasn't some idealist anti-rationalist, but built on lessons from Marx. He's the best of the bunch imo. He is miles a head of Foucault. He was an inspiration to autonomist Marxists / Negri (especially from the 90s forward, as they were meeting each other at that time).
>>295594 In other words, crypto-liberals.
>>295607 why ask when you already made up your mind?
>>295594 >He is miles a head of Foucault. In what way? Foucault's critique of Deleuze was that his philosophy goes hand in hand with liberalism and neoliberalism and he despised Deleuze's anti-fascism and anti-statism for that reason. Having read both, Foucault seems much less idealistic. But Foucault's critique doesn't go far enough because both of them are swimming in cybernetic ideology. Capitalism today is Deleuze's dream world, everything is flowing and circulating in a global rhizomatic system beyond any political regulation. >He was an inspiration to autonomist Marxists / Negri Some of the most uninspired and vapid leftist philosophy in recent decades. >>295289 Maybe try reading Agamben's Highest Poverty where he talks about communism in a more radical form. One of the major ideas of Agamben is that not only must private property be replaced by common property, but property as such must be abolished in favor of use. That is, there should be no ownership of anything, and everything should be in common use. He then generalizes this principle in The Use of Bodies. These two works form the last part of his Homo Sacer series, where after a critique of existing political power he then constructs a positive project for the future. It's very utopian and meant as the ultimate goal, but it's one of the rare attempts today of imagining a future beyond capitalism.
>>295658 >Capitalism today is Deleuze's dream world, everything is flowing and circulating in a global rhizomatic system beyond any political regulation. But that's completely wrong. Capitalism is forced to constantly re-territorialise the flows it unleashes using conventional, "arborescent" tools of control.

Rhizomatic means that there is no center or hierarchy, each node connects directly to other nodes, like plants or fungus or bacteria colonies or other natural things which form such networks, or like peer-to-peer networks.
>>296020 lack of understanding seems to be your field of expertise
>>296118 How is modern day capitalism rhizomatic tho?
>>296118 >Rhizomatic means that there is no center or hierarchy, each node connects directly to other nodes Rhizome when talking botany doesn't mean that. >like plants or fungus Lol no. You use a word from a field of study you don't know about, modify its meaning without being explicit about that because you want to keep it flexible to counter criticism by saying the critic failed to understand you – put in plain language: you are dishonest; and you couldn't even be explicit about the changes in meaning if you wanted since you don't understand the original meaning to begin with. Modern French Philosophy.

>>296550 Compare old labor in factorys to say Uber and gig economies.
>>296623 Did a Frenchman touch your peepee?
>>296702 Compare Uber to traditional taxi biz. Uber is a proprietary app, meaning there is one big central porky. Besides, forget about Uber. An anecdote is not a trend. You shouldn't make grand statements like capitalism becoming more decentralized without looking at data. >>296708 No. :/

https://325.nostate.net/2020/02/27/italy-against-the-quarantine-of-passions-the-social-epidemic/ > A new spectre looms around us and its strength is its presumed medical truthfulness and the power to erase in a flash all other spectres invisible to the human eye. Bizarrely, when we talk about fast death, the social epidemic becomes urgent. When death settles into life, everything returns to the world of catastrophe. Isn’t there an emergency when the places where we live become unbreathable from industrialization and from the machine-world? > No emergency when GMO necro-cultures devastate the air we breathe and the food we eat? No emergency even when we are still eating from radioactive soil contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986? And Fukushima, where nuclear technicians in that area announce that the only way to stop the radioactivity in progress is by dumping the waste into the ocean?
>>306143 just finished reading this before coming here. was good!! https://anarchistsworldwide.noblogs.org/post/2020/02/25/civilization-and-its-epidemics/ >As noted above, the lethal nature of such epidemics is enabled, rather than prevented, by what capitalist civilization called “progress”. Globalization – the result of capitalism’s need to expand into more and more of the world – has increased our mobility, incentivized people to pack themselves ever more tightly in cities, and further encroached on wild animals’ territories, all of which encourage the spread of disease. Global pandemics will worsen as long as we continue such practices.
