You're not wrong. :) Step one is to kick the habit! (which I kind of have done, I'm just here like once every third month or something, unless I get something worthwile out of it...)
But I mean this more along the lines of how conspiracy theories have started effecting large parts of the population to passify them. How do you keep people from socialism if they can use a search engine and knows what source criticism is? Exactly you fucking can't, so your only option is to funnel as many people as you can into conspiracy theory bullshit so that they just run around in circles and don't harm the increasing fragility of capital while they are generating ad revenue and wages.
This kind of bullshit is so prevalent in a bunch of different configurations, flat earth, trumps campain against hillary(and ofc i hate hillary) etc. It even comes in leftist configurations, "we are the true trots, lone carriers of the heritage of the russian revolution but everyone is against us because they know we're right, the succdems, the libs, the stalinists, etc. It's just bullshit to keep together small ass social groups that doesn't do fucking anything and are therefore rendered harmless.
Me? A pol convert? Hahah!!! If I would even try to hang out with POL-tards they would stab me for reading Adorno and Marx etc. I don't really like essentialism, we need some "healthy mix" of structuralism and post structuralism however vauge that suggestion may be.
But to take your reply as seriously as I can, which I want to do, because you might be a brilliant mind that we need. It might be reasonable that you've been thinking along these lines, so I'll try to explain where I stand in terms of my long entryism into the minds of a few friends who are into the alt right koolaid, they are not necessarily bad people, they are just soaked up in the current hegemony, which is easy to tell because they frequently agree when I utter some edgy shit like hang Shillray from a skyscraper.. They've litterarly just said that they just want to "shake up the esablishment" and I think this is a semi-reasonalbe proletarian impulse tbh, not to fetishize poor people but the thing is that for those who have hardly anthing voting is an act of desperation in dire times, you just opt for whoever seems able to fix what is currently fucking you up. Trumps win is a good example: Liberal establishment fucks the people, conservatives will too since it's basically the same thing, but the impulse is that "alright at least this guy adheres to my culture/seems more incompetent in fucking me up/is a successful businessman/is prolly not gonna make america great again but it might be ever so slightly better.
The logic isn't even worth to be called logic, but it's more of a desperate screech...
The lesson is however, not to get lost in BS, but to plan, research and execute, plan again and execute.
Yes the thing is that SJW's however you want to go about saying it, is essentially just liberals who have a good enough life to be able to have the luxury of being able to be nice.
For that is a luxury, why common peeps (in the us) are afraid that "the gov is gonna take muh guns and property" is due to the fact that people are scared of loosing whatever little they have. The personal property and private property distinction is needed here more than ever.
>>we seen to have no idea on how to adapt or invent new strategies for achieving our goals in the modern, post-industrial, internet era.
Yes. But the thing is that we're going to be become better at it than they ever could have thought. :))))
This is the time to think REALLY REALLY BIG, not small Comrade!
>>Personally, the largest factor holding us back in that department is the inherent surveillance that is built-into almost all online platforms at this point, we could potentially be able to mobilize masses of people for all kinds of actions, but not if we are constantly being watched by porky and co.
You're implying that just because we are being watched they will win. This isn't necessarily true. Even further, encryption is cheap as fuck and free software will make sure it's possible to get real sufficiently private convos in the future. As well as end to end encrypting already encrypted messages, like as far as communications goes, you only need a small sized group to be able to keep up with the snowden style communications. This is what I'm on about regarding something like Iskra for research.
>>I believe people are ready for change, perhaps not armed resistance yet, but they are willing to listen to us now more than ever, but I believe right now we have answer to give them on how exactly we're going to get to where we want (need) to be in our material conditions.
Throw out armed resistance from your thinking right now, revolutions doesn't really look like that in western states today IMHO.
You're totally correct, nice job Comrade. They've published what they've got from donation campaigns online frequently, and I've got a reputable enough source regarding how much they take in from membership.
And all and all I can just say that upkeep is what gets done, rent gets paid, books get printed, and what really doesn't get done is proper non dogmatic research, that's the issue with the standard cadre orgs that they centralize belief in a already established program, and they are GREAT at doing that, but when your program is fucked, that attracts peeps that usually aren't very bright, and those who are you guessed it, leave since they see that these people are beating their heads against a brick wall.
Here is an article that (very roughly) deals with some of their issues.
