>>646395 what is transmission loss alex?
>>646530 >closed system >earth I know what you mean but dumb terminology. We could do space mining and shit but that's obviously far off.
>>646525 >An alternative to uranium is thorium which is three times more common than uranium. Fast breeder reactors are not needed. Compared to conventional uranium reactors, thorium reactors using the thorium fuel cycle may produce some 40 times the amount of energy per unit of mass. 1.9MT of thorium would produce as much energy as about 76 MT of Uranium, so it could last for about 200 years or so, but either way yeah it would be unsustainable long term.
>>646533 in the sense of sustainability it makes perfect sense, there are hard limits due to limited resources on the planet and we're going to start hitting them or have already started to hit them over the next decade or two we could have absolutely been doing space mining a while back, but investment into space beyond low-mid earth orbit wasn't profitable so it never happened and probably won't happen under capitalism

Stupid fascist country
Again, everybody, wait for the eviction crisis to really hit
>>648302 are they really dumb enough to let this happen?
>>648286 I mean, we warned you that Trump was going to bring Nazism... that's his function, to get Burgers fired up for some of the old Hitlerism, and the fuckers have ate it up every step of the way. >>648487 They were dumb enough - or more accurately, evil enough - to let the worst of both worlds happen with coronavirus. Of course they're going to evict poor people, all while keeping the dumbass progressives distracted with woke politics (which includes tearing down statues of the Union now, because history is bunk or something).
>>648598 The hitlerism was there already and growing since gaymergate. Trump is just a grifter opportunist and took advantage of those people. Imagine if those fuckers had gotten some real fuhrer had political connections to the military. Instead they are donating money to some flamboyent New York fancy lad t.v game show host. Who got to lazy and bored to carry out a coup in Venezuela.
>>647862 No fucking way a bill would do all this. There has to be some exaggeration into this. Otherwise, it's easily the most flagrant violation of privacy in human history, without a joke. For all talk there is of "Echelon" systems automatically monitoring however many people's phonecalls, e-mails and shit, these were built around an existing structure, adapted to it, and thus likely to never be as effective as it could be. This is a game-changer, it would make hardware itself rigged from the start. It would be easy to automatize this to spy on literally everyone's communications for literally 24/7. You Burgers better hope to God this news is sensationalism, because otherwise, this is it. This is the big one, the thing cranks and paranoiacs have been raving all along. America has long been a strange "police democratic State", but this is something else. >>647868 Case in point, this infamous propaganda piece at Bloomberg: http://archive.is/3oe9J I think this is a historical piece, because I don't know of any other time when a mainstream media outlet lied so clearly and on such an immense scale. Shit like "remember the Maine" or muh Uyghur death camps at least can be attributed to fog of war or some other source of misinterpretation. This here was built from the ground up. I guess it might have been testing the waters, in a sense, to see how much the porky media can get away with. Well it turns out they can make shit up on the spot and there's not a damn thing the accused parties, even when it's an entire fucking country, can do about it. This is the complete bankruptcy of the liberal paradigm of information regulation, which had always been lax to say the least, and it's of one of the many ways in which bourgeoisie democracy has just hit rock-bottom. >>647872 The big problem here is that they can expose their own bullshit for the world to see, and it won't matter at all. That's the weaponized infocalypse about which I have been talking. There's hardly the need for secrecy when the public itself never gets to hear of it amidst the barrage of worthless information they're fed, or, even worse, the public dopes get to know about it but doesn't care. Well the latter merits some explanation. It's not so much that someone won't care, I mean this news about Uncle Sam's botnet is likely to raise an alarm in the minds of everyone who know about it, but them they look around at the "mediaspace" and at the topics talked about their immediate society and notice no one caring about it, and that's all it takes. That's omninormalization. The biggest outrages committed in broad daylight fly because there isn't a collective sense of indignation about it, only a million isolated alarm bells in a million minds, and no one raising an alarm in real life. This plays on our nature as social animals and the immense importance that social cues have for us. It's subversion in its most raw form, and of course only reactionaries could have the inhumanityn to enact this.
>>648613 It's not so much about cultivating the NAMBLA shits that constitute /pol (that has been a long term project for decades), but mainstreaming fascism in order to build a large enough base to stage a coup, or at least use the threat of a coup to push liberals into accepting more fascism. Trump himself is just a fucking idiot. The people behind him are considerably more dangerous, and they have been around for a while (plus, the neoconservative goose-steppers are still very much at it, and they're still running the MIGA strategy).
>>648635 >to push liberals into accepting more fascism. Under President Hillary >>648618 this would happen exactly the same You're in a one party state kid stop buying into the spectacle In fact youse'd probably be supporting it to go after teh Hitlerite Trump supporting deplorable right now
>>648613 Also, the coup failed because the coup was a harebrained State Department scheme from the start, not because Trump had any say in events. The US can't afford another war (especially when they remain committed to Bush's quagmire) and can't rely on proxies to fight Venezuela. Their only option is to prop up shitheads like Guaido or Anez in Bolivia and hope that it sticks. It worked in the latter case, but the Chavistas aren't going anywhere without an invasion.
>>648613 >The hitlerism was there already and growing since gaymergate. stahp
>>648648 If it's a one party state, the narrative called for Trump to win and they made sure of it. Even the ruling class and elitest of elites weren't going to support Lady Macbeth when push came to shove. Trump is their way to galvanize the base of paleo-conseratives in support of the regime, and enough dumb snowniggers buy into it. That's why the Republicans did a lot to prop up Trump, manufacture this retarded "anti-establishment" narrative to convince dumbasses that their faggotry is actually some sort of rebellion, when Trump is a truly banal figure.

>>648618 >he big problem here is that they can expose their own bullshit for the world to see, and it won't matter at all. That's the weaponized infocalypse about which I have been talking Reminds me of this comic >>648635 I agree for the most part, but I just think Trump was a miscalculation for these people. He didn't mainstream fascism as hoped and just ended up radicalized liberals. Pushing the movement underground. Honestly gaymergate was likely a miscalculation on their part to since it tied the kekistane, bronies, and other internet weirdos around the neck of the fascist project.The neo-cons were gonna neo-con no matter who won in 2016. The more competent ones that actually understood the importance of strategic alliances beyond Israel and the Saudis would be in charge. NATO wouldn't wouldn't be falling about and the plans for a new cold war would be laid out. Instead it's the wacko Dominionist trying to collect the 11 dragonballs for Israel to kick start the apocalypse. 100% I believe Mike pence and Pompeo have troops look for the lost ark of the covenant right now.
>>648662 The cultivation of online fascist faggotry has little to do with Trump. The work there was done in the 1980s and especially the 1990s. Shit, it wasn't subtle to see what South Park was intended to do. But media narratives don't matter so much. The ascension of Trump - or more importantly, the ascension of the extremely evil lot of people in Trump's government - is more about expanding the tendrils of American Fascism beyond its natural base. The base for American Fascism has been screaming for a long time now, eager for payback after they were suppressed in WW2. The point of Trump is to rehabilitate Nazi collaboration as a legitimate political position, and to drag more normal people into passive support for a fascist coup. It's pretty clear they've given up on salvaging the appearance of liberal republicanism.
>>648286 >>648598 better vooote blooo, fascism is right around the corner!!!!!
>>648686 What was South Park intended to do?
>>648686 Again I'm not disagree with you. I'm just saying they've done a terrible job at normalizing American Fascism, specifically Nazism. They've gotten all the polices they've wanted since the 1980's for the most part. They just haven't been able to reshape the culture away from liberalism like they truly want. The last ditch effort was for storm front to colonize the gaming community and chans. Then they saw trump, started doing nazi salutes and going mask off. This didn't awaken a great fascistic movement and cause all the white people to rise up. It just normalized extreme politics in general. Tied them down to trump who's been a completely incompetent leader and only surrounded himself around incompetent people. I do think it's possible the U.S goes fascist, maybe even likely. It just won't be Nazism, it'll be some schizo shit like Qanon. The propaganda and culture will be less triumph of the will and more like bad tom Clancy novels.
>>647865 Listening to the senate conference currently. From a perspective of the status quo they are making a good argument right now.

>>648783 Which big tech spent more money capturing the senate. We might still have net neutrality if they cared to bribe some senators. Fuck.
>>646395 This is ignoring the costs of actually installing and maintaining that many solar panels - not to mention the enormous power banks such infrastructure would require. It's a lot easier to say "let's cover 1/18th of the Sahara in glass, steel, and/or rare earth metals" than it is to actually do it. While solar is definitely the best option in the very long term, aside from experimental nuclear power sources like fusion, we need a much more diversified power infrastructure to solve our current crisis. This includes "unsustainable" but mostly CO2-neutral energy sources like nuclear fission, as well as less-polluting hydrocarbons like natural gas to cover energy needs that can't be covered by electricity with the current infrastructure.
>>648776 >>648792 Why would they be against this? At first sight, yes it's bad for business, but the greater class interest far surpasses it, especially considering that, these days, anyone with an inch of power can quite literally get away with murder.
>>648801 That's true, big tech has been pretty intertwined with the Military industrial complex for awhile. As well as the NASA. Sadly their opposition is likely just theatrics to make it look like they put up a fight before the big bad government forced their hand.

>>648737 For fuck's sake, the vast majority of Americans and an even larger majority of the world doesn't care about online narratives. I'm talking about the re-normalization of eugenics, the rehabilitation of literal Nazis especially in Europe. This has been carried out in the mainstream, through the most aggressive propaganda campaign even seen in history. There is a vocal opposition and vocal advocates, but the purpose of the propaganda push is to beat the majority of mostly apathetic people into submission. A healthy society doesn't produce a Trump, would have rightly ridiculed Trump as a con man, but we live in an era of ultimate degeneracy.
>>648834 I am not talking about this thread. I am not even that alunya poster, kek. Sorry the confusion.
>>648856 You're correct but I still think that they might have overplayed their cards, or maybe even more frighten/amazingly that no matter what card or trick that they try to pull off, there is simply nothing that would stop the collapse of American society from happening.

>>648856 >A healthy society doesn't produce a Trump, would have rightly ridiculed Trump as a con man, but we live in an era of ultimate degeneracy. The more I think about it, the deeper the nature of this crisis seems to be. Not just America's problems, not just capitalism's contradictions, but entire paradigms which emerged with liberalism but aren't usually thought of as being liberal because they seem so "common sensical" or lack opposing theories. Things like the tripartite State, the adversarial and inquisitorial systems (which are just different ways of enacting the same paradigm), the boundaries between opinion and fact in social relations and a gorillion other pic related.

>>647862 welp. I'd rather be spied on by the Chinese than by the CIA.
>>648742 I saw South Park as an attempt to shape the mentality of white middle-class office workers who lived out in the suburbs but would commute into their office job alongside dudes named Patel and so on. If those white guys want that fat, white office paycheck they're going to be under orders from their boss to get along with the Patels of the office. Anyways the message of South Park is that racist jokes are okay provided it's ironic so when they go home on Wednesday night they can turn on South Park and laugh at the Patel jokes and let off some steam but it's okay because they don't really mean it. >>649016 I'd say "decadence" is more accurate. Really it's the fact that left-liberals or the right-conservatives are both trying to find ways out of the crisis but neither have a path out of it, either through more technocratic imperialism (the liberal solution) or by turning against the tools that have sustained the American system of which capitalism worldwide depends as its hegemonic actor (the right-conservative/populist solution that wants to pull out of multilateral trade agreements, the WTO, NAFTA, etc.). "According to Vladimir Lenin, capitalism had reached its highest stage and could no longer provide for the general development of society. He expected reduced vigor in economic activity and a growth in unhealthy economic phenomena, reflecting capitalism's gradually decreasing capacity to provide for social needs and preparing the ground for socialist revolution in the West. Politically, World War I proved the decadent nature of the advanced capitalist countries to Lenin, that capitalism had reached the stage where it would destroy its own prior achievements more than it would advance." Now, I have no idea whether there will be a "socialist revolution in the West" but that description fits. Trump's own vulgar luxury, "get-rich-quick" boosterism, proto-fascist impulsiveness and general P.T. Barnum carnival barker personality could probably be symptoms of a general decadence in society -- he's a symptom as much as a cause of it.

>>648929 Obviously, the move towards overt Hitlerism has been in the works for a while. Trump is the salesman to sell it, just as Obama's job was to sell the neocon ideology to liberals. We don't actually have a political system any more, not even in the meager way it existed historically. Still, the system does have to sell its ideology, convince large numbers of people that this country is still actually a thing. In that, Trump has been successful, when a sane society would have refused to regard the retard as a legitimate ruler (because he isn't ruling shit all). Any time someone even pretends the Trump narrative is real, it rots the brains of all of us with pure retardation.
>>649044 Nah, it's pure degeneracy. Why else would the fascist right be so preoccupied with sexualism and whatever gayass media narrative / commodified ideology they follow at the moment? This shit isn't even the cool kind of homosexuality that gets a certain kind of man to shoot his cum powerfully. It's just banal faggotry.
>>649046 It's about removing even the remote possibility of technology being purposed against the regime, by mandating that every piece of hardware transmit data to the government. Ultimately, end users won't even be allowed the simplest of processing units, except those that they can fashion themselves out of crude materials or scavenge from old computers. It would be remarkably easy to make use of primitive processors to build drones and shit, if in the hands of rebels that could amplify their reach considerably. Controlling the masses, forcing everyone to bend over for Bill Gates, that already happens and most people are oblivious or simply don't care. There are those degenerates who proclaimed after the Snowden leaks that anyone who was worried was retarded and stupid, the same sort who suck up to any center of power habitually.

>>649110 I'm kind of surprised civilian drones haven't been weaponized yet. Save for that flopped "suicide droning" attack on Maduro, there seems to be nothing. Military sniper drones already exist, so ghetto-rigged versions shouldn't be far behind.
>>649126 Not even weapons, necessarily, just drones for recon and tracking regime troop movements. Those exist, but the dream would be for the regime to be able to shut down or hijack any computer not under their control, and to promote technological illiteracy among the populace. They already succeeded in mystifying biology and getting people to believe in patently untrue falsehoods as dogma, and they shit up physics really well. But they've not been able to get away from their need for computer programmers, electronics knowledge being commonplace, etc. Simply the idea of a computer not being under regime control is anathema to some of the basic principles these rulers hold.
>>649126 It could happen here pod talked about ISIS using gas powered drones to fight the Kurds. Insurgent airforce is entirely possible. I couldn't find the blog that had the pics. If I remember it seems like they were launched by a catapult system and would follow a simple program to maintain a certain height and drop its payload over a GPS tracker. I think they just used raspberry pis and old cell phones.

>>649257 It is funny calling America stuff like the US regime or Trump regime. Sends Americans mental. I've started doing it for all the NATO countries since they won't shut the fuck up calling it everyone else.
>>649236 That's another thing, most countries are starting to get over covid. America has only accelerated in cases. I think it very likely we'll see travel restrictions imposed on the U.S. Countries might start implementing a quarantine once America is the only country left with covid cases. We could be seeing sanctions against the U.S under the pretext of human right abuses and the rest of the world not wanting to be re-infected by covid.
>>649262 >That's another thing, most countries are starting to get over covid. This only true for Europe and not the rest of the world.
>>649249 What was their impact? Valuable or just a novelty?
>>649263 Well according to John Hopkins the U.S has more cases of covid than the next highest three countries combined. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html And also double the amount of deaths as the next highest country Brazil. Most countries will recover by next year. Outside of Brazil I don't theres any other countries that have their leader actively telling people to pretend covid doesn't exist, and telling them not to wear mask. We still have 4 more months in till the next election. And so far only 1 of the states resisting against quarantine and mask has only just started re-implementing half ass measures to reverse course. We're going into next year with possible 10 million people infected, a shame election just taking place. We're the winner will be a demented old man regardless of who wins. An active political movement that is coughing and sneezing on people. Not to mention the collapse of the supply chain, food shortages, the eviction crisis. America isn't going to just be washed over with a plague. It's going to be incredibly politically unstable. I just don't see a future were the U.S won't be sanctions and quarantined by the rest of the world.
>>649292 Covid-19 infections are unfortunately on the rise in most countries (sans Europe and some part of East Asia). This is very much a global problem still.

>>649262 >most countries are starting to get over covid I HIGHLY doubt it. My country recently got an uptick of over a thousand new infections thanks to our politicians treating companies with kiddie gloves, and said outbreak hasn't stopped them from trying to send children back to school or people back to work. Shit might not be as bad as in the US, but we will continue to suffer as well, just in circles.

>>649321 I wasn't actually talking about Brazil, but Germany.

>>649292 I wouldn't believe any regime's official statistics. US losses are much, much higher than the official corona losses, and most of the third world is going to get rekt. There's no way I believe China immediately flatlined coronavirus cases. The dirty secret is that this is it. The US is in its death throes. It's Gorbachev-begging-the-IMF tier. Maybe something will survive without a civil war (in fact I think a civil war highly unlikely, as no faction is remotely close to challenging the present regime and the closest to a viable faction is already getting much of what they want with liberal collusion). But we're talking about a death toll in the tens of millions over the next several years, and there is no way a government survives such a disaster, especially without another world power to prop it up. Maybe the Atlanticists on the other side of the pond will try, but they're going to get fucked pretty bad too and they're already getting propped up by the US.
>>649340 I think they're just gonna elect Joe Biden and trot on. Who cares about a million dead proles, it was necessary to save the economy.
>>649340 The 3 Gorges dam was collapsing until they reinforced it with the corpses of the gorillion coronavirus deaths.
>>649336 Actually being a strong candidate would hurt you in this environment. Actually demonstrating independent political competence would upset the powers that be, even if you were an orthodox liberal with all the right ideas. The future of American leadership will be empty suits and the most ridiculous platitudes imaginable thrown in our collective faces. All the regime has left are lies and threats.
>>649347 The economy isn't going to be saved. We didn't even have a shutdown until capitalism shit the bed yet again and the bankers had to get another pound of flesh from us. One would think the whole point of the half-assed shutdown was to present a pretext for this power grab. The whole thing smells rotten. The obvious thing to do would have been to focus efforts of the international travel ports that are likely to get corona first, but their response was to exacerbate the crisis in those cities and tell small town America they had to sacrifice now now now even though few would be sick there. There was a period of two fucking months to prepare, even. During February, liberal press was gloating over China's misfortune instead of pressing the government to do the bare minimum. They were quick to whip up a panic, but stubbornly refused to do anything that would significant help. Of course, when shit went down, the usual suspects brayed about humans being the actual virus and how corona was going to help Gaia or someshit, but that was so monstrously unpopular that it got shouted down on the internets real fast.
>>649351 Yeah, the future of liberal democracy is a hollow liturgy masking a complete lack of political agency. Assuming it doesn't collapse into itself before. >>649361 Everything which happened this year sounds off. It really does read like a bad script.

Does anyone else find the calls on the right to designate Antifa a “terrorist organization” rather worrying? I’m sure some might argue that it’s just political posturing since the notion is ridiculous for several reasons, mainly because Antifa is just a bunch of anarchists who share information with each other and not a cohesive organization. But I fear that in turn could make it all the more dangerous. If what constitutes Antifa is vaguely defined by the feds, what’s to stop them from labelling any left-wing activist a member of Antifa? I feel like this could unleash a major wave of political repression perhaps even greater than the heyday of COINTELPRO. And sure some people claim that such a designation would be prohibited by the First Amendment but I really wouldn’t put my fate in the hands of the Supreme Court to be honest.

>>650157 >what’s to stop them from labelling any left-wing activist a member of Antifa? Don't they already do that? I went to a protest once with the DSA and saw some footage of some right-wing / "Patriot" dude who was filming it and posted it online. And the DSA were wearing red shirts and the right-wing dude was like "we have 40 Red Guards out here!!!" And I was like "Red Guards!?! Don't you idiots know anything about the left!!!" IMO there are some slippery problems for them here since even "left-wing activist" is a pretty vague term. I remember this one clerical/fundie-fascist state representative from Washington by the name of Matt Shea recently getting into trouble (and I mean legal trouble) because he apparently was conspiring with some right-wing militia people to "go after antifa" in his neighborhood which meant harassing the local Indivisible chapter -- and if you know anything about Indivisible the extent of their radicalism is getting hot and steamy over pictures of Beto O'Rourke.
>>650187 >>650250 Yeah, it's still possible Trump can bullshit his way out with some sort of "muh line go up" flimflam combined with short attention spans, but it would be an uphill battle. Right now, unless things change massively, Biden or whoever replaces him when Trump demands a face-to-face debate and Biden's mummified remains are exhumed from the basement of Democratic Campaign HQ's fuhrerbunker has it in the bag.

Hi comrades from Burgerland. What are your thoughs on this column. Or what media should one check to know about the state of burgerstan? <Trump's presidency is like a dead man golfing. So will he drop out of the election? <By Arwa Mahdawi, The Guardian >I don’t want to be nice or unnice, OK? But Donald Trump has never looked so pathetic. There’s an air of defeat about the president; the master of puff seems deflated. It has been another terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week for Trump. Unless something radical happens, the president is a dead man golfing. >Trump is mired in a number of potentially presidency-ending crises. First, there are the bombshell allegations that Russia offered cash bounties to Taliban-linked fighters for successful attacks on American troops in Afghanistan. According to the New York Times, Trump was briefed on this but did nothing – apart from offering to invite Vladimir Putin to a G7 summit. An allegation like this, as house speaker Nancy Pelosi has noted, is about “as bad it gets”. If Trump was told about the bounties, he betrayed US soldiers; if he wasn’t told, then his administration is murderously incompetent. >Trump has responded to the crisis in his usual manner: outraged tweets. On Sunday night, Trump called the story “another fabricated Russia hoax” and claimed he hadn’t been briefed on the bounties claim because it wasn’t “credible”. How, one might ask, did he ascertain the information wasn’t credible if it was never reported to him? His incredible intuition? >White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany attempted to clarify matters on Monday. Trump hadn’t been briefed, she told reporters, because there were “dissenting opinions” about the veracity of the information. Which is a very different excuse from the one proffered by Trump. But consistency isn’t something the Trump administration seems acquainted with. >White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany attempted to clarify matters on Monday. Trump hadn’t been briefed, she told reporters, because there were “dissenting opinions” about the veracity of the information. Which is a very different excuse from the one proffered by Trump. But consistency isn’t something the Trump administration seems acquainted with. >White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany attempted to clarify matters on Monday. Trump hadn’t been briefed, she told reporters, because there were “dissenting opinions” about the veracity of the information. Which is a very different excuse from the one proffered by Trump. But consistency isn’t something the Trump administration seems acquainted with. Trump doesn’t seem to care about Americans dying. He certainly doesn’t care about racism or police brutality. But he does care about his ratings – and these are abysmal. >Trump is polling so badly that even he, a raving narcissist, seems to realise he might lose. Last week he told Fox News that Joe Biden was “going to be president because some people don’t love me, maybe”. Trump went on to belittle Biden: “I don’t want to be nice or unnice, OK? The man can’t speak.” >Things are so dire that the possibility has been floated that Trump might not stick around for the election. A recent Fox News report claimed some (anonymous) GOP operatives reckon Trump’s current psyche is “fragile” and he could drop out of the 2020 race “if his poll numbers don’t rebound”. >I doubt Trump will throw in the towel: he would rather drink bleach than be seen as a loser. He may be trailing in the polls but he will do whatever it takes to win. While it is tempting to hope so, this is not the end of the Trump presidency. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

What would you describe exactly to be the "Sub-classes" of the Working class in the USA? There's Urban workers - Service, Retail, Warehousing etc "the precariat" Office workers - Finance, Tech Employed farmers/pickers - Mexican or Black temp workers, working on farms and fields that they don't own Self-employed or owning farmers - Usually White, conservacuck etc Dispossessed/Former workers - Many categories, mixes of Black, White and Latin through the Rust belt, the South, New York etc etc What do you guys think? I'm trying to look at discussing a multi pronged strategy by appealing to the different groups, for example Farmers being appealed to by lobbying against Monsanto or getting Tractor fixing/self-repair and left-wing gun rights. Or for example, promises of employ for Coal miners, and industry jobs for the Rust belt types; For Urbans you could promise better and more robust infrastructure like subways/trains/trams especially in places like New York

>>657450 The best group of office workers to appeal too is call center employees. Often under payed and are the back bone of corporations. Not only their customer service facing side but also their own internal bureaucracy. For instance homedepot has a technical/bureaucrat call center that supports all their stores and other corporate offices. They fix technical issues, order supplies and generally help employees navigate the daunting corporate bureaucracy. These call centers used to be in India but all the GMS across the nation organized their workers in order to get the call centers to move back to the states because the service was so poor. Many corporations have these massive internal call centers that are critical for workers. Radicalizing them can radicalize all workers in the corporate structure since nearly every worker interacts with this internal call center structure. These internal call centers are also critical for logistics to the corporate structure.

what do you guys think about zizek endorsing biden because of covid19?
>>659024 Zizek has always been an anti-communist
>>659024 A retarded attempt to compensate for his stupid pro-Trump accelerationism last time. And it ignores the impotent position a Biden win will put the Left in for the foreseeable future, which is why no Leftist with a brain wants a Biden victory. Zizek makes clear in his books that he doesn't actually see a path to communism, so he's embraced unironic lesser evilism. I don't think his position is very helpful to those who want the Left to gain strategic strength and achieve a socdem stage. Zizek is not a revolutionary but ironically his view here seems most compatible with those who do not believe in incrementalism and therefore believe that lesser evilism is the best you can do until the climate crisis or whatever genuinely destabilizes the present establishment.

>>657450 At this point, there is no "working class" as a unified thing. There is a category of people who are forced to sell their labor or depend on charity, but the working class proper has been so thoroughly split along well-known dividing lines such as education, entry in labor aristocracy, the scale of worker disposability, racialization, and of course the big ones - the separation of two very distinct subclasses, migrant workers and prison slaves. It is difficult to imagine a neoliberal polity without the extensive migrant and slave labor competing with "free" wageslavery. Reaganism couldn't work without the threat of replacing all the native workers with illegal immigrants who have few or no legal rights as such in the system, or with the threat of mass incarceration creating a slave labor army. But even among the "free" workers, there are stark divisions; and of course, the educated professions in a Marxian sense are almost always petit bourgeois or higher, either because they were extracted from that class or because it's unlikely to receive that salary and not spend it on some skin in the property game. Contrast this to the situation in the 19th century, where public schooling was in its infancy and the vast majority of the working class were not even expected to graduate or amount to anything. The Prussian schooling system was basically built to destroy the foundations of democratic thought and condition masses for conscription without the problems that a republic or democracy would entail for the rulers of Prussia/Germany. The American system was built for similar purposes, though they also had the task of imposing an "American" identity and culture on a population that arrived from all parts of the world in great numbers, and to make sure that nothing like the Civil War would happen again. The school isn't the only factor in this division of workers into distinct social and political classes, but it is a fundamental part of the division. In the 1970s and onward, this political division became increasingly stark, since the neoliberal state didn't really need large masses of free workers or large masses of soldiers to maintain its empire, and the greatest turn came in the 1990s when the last sobering influence on neoliberal states was removed, and consequently schools wrote off large numbers of people as complete invalids, instituted large-scale drugging and generally saw the kids as lab rats in social experiments more than anything else. I don't believe, in such an environment, that you could arrive at the kind of solidarity that existed in the 1930s and certainly any alliance between labor and the educated professions has been destroyed. Even at its peak, labor solidarity was not incredibly strong, otherwise the United States would have had to either go fascist to crush the working classes utterly or communist (or at the very least, it would have to be very social-democratic and heading towards a socialist goal).
>>659552 >At this point it's really down to which post-election media regime would be less annoying to listen to, and which incompetent figurehead/party would be more advantageous to organize under. And I think we all know which one that is. >>659629 >has he just written off human progress or humanity not going into the dark ages for the next few generations? when he says it's easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism, he's being facetious, but I also take him at his word. Mostly though I think he's just looking for an excuse to, like I said, compensate for the stance he took in 2016 which got him a lot of backlash.
>>659024 He thinks it will save lives, I am inclined to agree with him, unless it's already too late...
>>659024 Zizek should not be talking about current events or contemporary politics because he always just makes an ass out of himself. He should stick to reviewing movies he has never watched. >>659867 >unless it's already too late Even if you don't think it is too late now, I don't know how you can deny that by January 2021 it will be.
>>659867 so you think he's done a calculation and he thinks the number of people who will die of covid under trump is more than the number of people who will die from ww3/etc under biden? i mean considering USA killed like 1+million humans in iraq with sanctions under GW bush? so does zizek think that millions will die from covid under trump? or does he see biden's badness as limited (im not mentioning trumps badness because i feel its understood?)? this is what i am trying to figure out. what exactly does he believe? he is not afraid of 'the establishment'? i know trump is also establishment but clearly the media monopoly hates him so isn't it going to be very bad if every single power structure is the hillary/biden/illuminati rather than every single power structure except for the oval office? where can i find this discussed since no one here seems interested in discussing it?
>>659629 >interesting because isn't he just a teeny little bit less of a warhawk than the establishment which is the reason why they want him gone? genuinely asking. Honestly, it's a bit difficult to judge Trump on a... human scale. It's a known fact that he was whining to his staff "why don't we invade Venezuela" because muh oil, but he obviously has more respect for Maduro than fucking Guaidó. Considering his BFF Kim, it's entirely possible that Trump would declare Venezuela as America's greatest ally if Maduro were to charm him in person. Regardless of his intentions tho, his results definitely can be compared to those of other presidents, and he has mismanaged the imperial establishment magnificently. Alienated Western Europe for no particular reason, removed America from many treaties out of knee-jerk jingoism, ignored standing foreign policies pretty much completely and just did whatever he wanted, ended radical islamists -- who have long been an invaluable if unreliable asset -- as an international force (I have a feeling this will turn out to be the most important factor), wrecked the world's popular opinions of America just by being himself and sho on and sho on. I'm honestly surprised that the much famed deep State has let him get away with it all. It's amusing to imagine it being tempted to just flip the democratic table like they have always instructed tinpot dictators to do, like when Trump had a shouting match with the chairman of the JCoS.

>>659867 >>659889 what do you mean by 'too late'? wouldn't that imply the pandemic would be over by then? or not covid at all?
>>660382 It means you're going to have to pick which class you're with, because the class interests are antagonistic. University graduates are inherently antagonistic with factory workers and the uneducated plebs, far too much for there to be any sort of permanent alliance unless they are class collaborated by another, typically more powerful class (such as the capitalists). And if you want a revolution of the university graduates - and that's the only class that has any real standing to pull off a revolution - great, but the vast majority of proles have no reason to trust those people or expect that the revolution would mean anything other than being thrust down into servitude, perhaps under even worse conditions. (Just imagine if their lower status were made permanent by the revolution, that they for the rest of their lives are, forever, subject to some expert who would be given constitutionally the freedom to live off the back of lower labor.) It's easy for me, because I'm not a believer in revolution. I'm just trying to survive in this hellworld. Maybe, it's possible to build something better, or at least something without the stupidity of capitalism. It would likely have to arise from a hitherto unknown place. Marxism as far as I can tell is a spent force, and it really took Lenin and Mao being incredible forces in their time and place for Marxism to even be the language of revolution. It should be noted that they took root in what were predominantly peasant societies, where there was basically no liberal tradition to speak of, and the communist revolutions essentially took the place of liberal revolutions in other countries and built rapidly the conditions for state capitalism. I don't think Marx predicted capitalists would go full retard in the 1920s though. Anyway I find the whole business of scheming to foment a revolution distasteful, and a large reason why a lot of normies do not want socialism or communism. The conditions are here already - we know that socialism is technologically possible, we know that it is politically feasible (there is no good reason why private capital should be allowed to exist, and the state could at any time forcibly nationalize a lot of this shit). We also know that this neoliberal capitalist system is utterly fucking terrible and has accomplished nothing but bad things for nations and peoples who adopt the ideology. The problem of the socialists isn't that they need to cajole people or trick them into liking socialism, but that socialism needs to have relevant answers to the wreckage normal people see in capitalist society. For the longest time, I did dismiss socialists until socialists were the people speaking the most sense about present conditions, but the ultraleft middle class elements have done their damndest to squander any chance they would have to reach the masses. There is value in agitation and propaganda, but such a strategy is inherently limited and the agitation I often see from left elements actively damages their cause, especially when the left carries water for anti-worker, anti-masses measures like eco-austerity.

And with Trump a lame duck, and the Dems without an obvious front-runner, the field will be wide open to actually try for someone good in 2024.

But this did remind me of a blog series linked from old /leftypol/ I've been struggling to find, describing the Nazis' economic policy as basically a struggle between a generic Keynesian inherited from Weimar whose policies actually worked, and an economically illiterate Nazi who stripmined everything to feed the war machine, with Hitler swapping between the two as his desire to smash Germany against Europe conflicted with the need to keep his economy from imploding. Also the usual of kekworthy stuff about borrowing from DA JUICE with MEFOs

>>664862 because a good chunk of the public is persuadable to one side or another by events. A few months ago polling had the election close, now it's swung hard toward Biden. That newfound support is not solid, could change back if Biden looks like a wreck in the debates. I don't think the debates will be enough though unless Biden really faceplants. The economy needs to rebound a lot by November for Trump to have a chance. Or he has to just start throwing relief money at people to win them back over. Otherwise he's probably done.
>>664633 I can't even tell if it's ironic. >>664862 Ideally, debates would be vital to any democratic decision.

>>666831 Another important thing for the Left if Biden loses is that the neoliberal "line of succession" would be broken. With both Biden and Hillary BTFO'd (and Nancy likely retiring in 2024), the Democratic party doesn't have clear leadership, and they have extraordinarily little in the way of fresh new faces -- the best they have is the blindingly artificial Mayor Pete, who will never get elected to anything. This will accelerate the ideological crisis within the party. Something similar was true of the Repubs in 2016 and we saw how that went.

I'm not even watching this shit, but I have the sound on in the background but the announcer and music are hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDOnmRzllOc
>>666927 I very much doubt it. The Obama administration broke something in the system. Besides becoming 100% symbiotic with government foreign policy independently of who is in the Oval Office, look how much it pushed liberals rightwards, simply by whitewashing (o the irony) everything the White House black king did. Those doomsday predictions by Frankfurters, situationists, Baudrillard et all became true. The media isn't just manufacturing consent, but reality itself. (A brief parenthetical. I think media itself has lost control of hyperreality and can no longer properly craft it -- that's the result of the weaponized infocalypse, which is a victory for the most reactionary porkies and a defeat for the liberal ones. However, even if a single hyperreality can solidify and become the generally accepted one, it suffices, for the immediate goals of both the ractionary and liberal sectors, that everyone is nhabiting their own bubble of bullshit. That's enough to keep everyone alienated, and, in fact, it may be more efective at it than a single, carefully crafted hyperreality.) They have been successfully hiding the biggest economic implosion in history, and now they're doing the same thing to the protests and police reprisals. The implosion requires jumping through hoops to hide away, but the protests, not so much. Simply blacking them out can be enough to kill them. Ask youself, would you bother going out and demanding serious change if you thought you were the only one wanting it? No you wouldn't, not wouldn't the other millions who might have tagged along, if only they knew each other. Instead, you and your million potential colleagues are alone and miserable, incapable of seeing a way to change it. Alienation keeps increasing, but Porky doesn't give a shit because a million proles an heroing is preferrable to any number of them getting together and organizing. And right now, his means of communication finally have the power to do exactly that. The only unknown factor here being the unparalleled material pressure for people to revolt regardless of the media media manipulation. Can the sheer scale of this catastrophe overpower the capacity of omnipresent media and Spectacle to obscure and falsify reality?
>>666952 On the other hand, Obama's victory drove people right, although by a different mechanism, the media's full complicity in whitewashing everything. Biden's victory will ensure the exact same thing happens again. A victorious Trump won't have the media incessantly parroting that message about unifying behind him tho. America is so far down the rabbit hole that a Republican victory seems to be less likely to drive the country rightwards.
