All sects on the left are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums might ban. However, this was only a minor consideration in the naming of /leftypol/. Since the concept is simply a leftist version of /pol/, the entire name of /pol/ was retained. >I'm not a leftist can I post here? Non-leftists can come here to ask questions. Board moderation here is more focused on maintaining a good board index, so non-leftists have to be on better behavior as OP than they do as participants in someone else's thread. If you aren't b8ing or shitposting, your thread is likely to stay up. >Are you liberals? Are you SJWs? Do you like Clinton? Are you all Zionists??? No liberals here. We hate the Democrat party. As for Israel, leftism is anti-Zionist. It is not anti-Jew. Unlike /pol/, /leftypol/ fully supports Palestinians, and doesn't think they're "mudslimes". Pretending to be an SJW or Zionist will very likely get you banned. >Why did you leave /pol/ and why does this board exist? /leftypol/ existed to help the 8chan community focus on leftist topics without being slid or flooded to death, and now has moved to Bunkerchan as constant alt-right chud murderers and Qanon boomers killed 8chan. >Do you support gun control? While posters on /leftypol/ have varying stances on gun control (training requirements, mental health checks, etc.), they are overwhelmingly in favor of arming the proletariat. >Do you support "national" socialism? No.

Yeah, for me all in depth theory is fucking boring. I will never read Capital, ok you fucking nerds? History is far more informative anyway.
I'd say the Soviets, they may be honored for what they are now. And always. But the Stalin days and after that, as far as I know it was bad. So actually bad, also going against good left hand views.

Anyone a reply to this?
You really should read Kapital though. OR at least watch videos about it.

Is there anything actually important in Kapital that can't be gleamed from Wage Labor and Capital + Value Price and Profit?
Yes, everything. I know we post WLC and VPP as "intros," but honestly you don't really understand them unless you read Capital (or at least some other big classical political econ book). It's a bit circular.
Capital is incredibly important for dozens of reasons. It explains how capitalism works, it contains a history of capitalism and class struggle, it teaches dialectical materialism by example, it touches on ecology, the list goes on... and that's just in Vol 1.
One big reason communists have to read Capital is that one of their central arguments is that YOU CAN'T REFORM CAPITALISM. Well, how do they know that? Why can't socdems win and give us ethical capitalism? If you don't understand political economy, you will end up accidentally conceding on dozens of points of bourgeois ideology. Lefts who don't read Capital are especially vulnerable to Keynesianism.
Doesn't he say that Marx doesn't have a labor theory of value though?
In my own opinion, this is little reason to discount some of the commentary on Capital. It's extremely notable that this shouldn't be extended to full identification with Harvey' argument, but rather that it's equally unproductive to simply do away with a resource that may be helpful in other respects.
It would also be worth examining in an immanent way, as in how does Marx not have a labour theory of value; Which is to say how does Marx's labour theory of value differ from that of the other classical political economists, and where is Harvey correct in his negation and what is the negation of the negation here?

cuz he triggered the libs
Chuang is really fucking good and everyone with an interest in China should read it.
i find his theory of hauntology very interesting as it deals with our current obsession of recycling cultural trends while not really coming up with new ones. also his take on capitalist realism is important as it challenges the neoliberal meme that 'there is no alternative. if its not your cup of tea then that's fine
But hauntology was Derrida
The Communist Manifesto book is actually pretty well structured once you get past all the million prefaces.
I think the manifesto should be one of the last things you read. It's not a good introduction to Marxism. Seeing that dumbass Jordan Peterson talk to Zizek about it is proof of this. I'd recommend reading Socialism: Scientific and Utopian, The Paris Manuscripts and the Germany Ideology first before you even touch the Manifesto.
>Seeing that dumbass Jordan Peterson talk to Zizek about it is proof of this
He didn't even read the damn thing.
that's asking too much of people. Critique of the Gotha Programme outlines his ideology quite well and is the same length as the manifesto.
it's riddled with superficial liberal dogmatism. Marx wrote it when he was 21 years old for crying out loud. I really think communists should stop shilling that drivel.

>How exactly do modern states basically take over another country without changing borders on a map?

Don't have any specific resources but the tl:dr answer is debt. If you trick a poor nation into taking a large loan it cannot possibly pay back, when it's time to pay back you basically have more control over their policies than a boots on the ground invasion could ever give you. See: The IMF in Latin America, the EU in Greece or China in Africa.

>Any resources on neo-imperialism?
Imperialism in the 21st Century by John Smith is supposed to be a good book.
>How exactly do modern states basically take over another country without changing borders on a map?
Other anon is correct that it's mostly through debt and predatory agreements. Military and economic imperialism also go hand in hand. A really concrete example is what happened in Iraq after the US invaded in 2003. Up until the invasion, there had been laws stating that only a certain percentage of the Iraqi economy's profits (I believe about 45%) could be extracted to other countries. One of the first things the Americans did was scrapping this law and all others of the kind so that all sectors of the Iraqi economy could be sold out to (mostly American) corporations.
>or China in Africa.
Ah but this is where you are wrong anon. China is completely distinct from the IMF and Troika's machinations because it doesn't trick countries into predatory loans, which is because it's not an imperialist state. The big difference between (for example) the Chinese AIIB and the World Bank is that China doesn't require you to sell out your country and enforce destructive neoliberal policies before you can join. I would even say China is actively pursuing an anti-imperialist stance by providing better alternatives to the predatory American institutions for the Third World.
>China cannot not carry out imperialist policies, because it is not imperialist!
Literal circular logic.
>China doesn't require you to sell out your country
They do though.

Stop being an ideologue.
>>China cannot not carry out imperialist policies, because it is not imperialist!
>Literal circular logic.
You are the one that came up with this strawman, not me. I gave concrete examples of China cooperating with Third World countries on a non-imperialist basis. The reason China is not imperialist is that Chinese capital is far from being developed enough to enter into the imperialist stage; also don't forget China still has its major industries nationalized and keeps tight control over the private capitalist sector. It's not a capitalist country, let alone an imperialist one.
>Links a wikipedia article about "debt-trap diplomacy" that doesn't even mention any actual imperialist institutions such as the IMF and literally consists of parroting of the Western right-wing rhetoric against China
Debt trap diplomacy is pajeet nonsense, fren. And the bottom line is that the number of aocialist revolutions crushed by the US ia staggering and only growing. Ppl with a real interest in socialism shouldnt be apologizing for the US under any circumstances based this fact alone. Stop being a such a useless idiot anon.
>I gave concrete examples of China cooperating with Third World countries on a non-imperialist basis.
No you didn't. I can however offer concrete examples of the contrary; for example giving Kenya huge loans (that they cannot possibly repay) for building the Port of Mombasa and the Standard Gauge Railway, only to take strategic control over them after they default is literally predatory loaning practices.
>The reason China is not imperialist is that Chinese capital is far from being developed enough to enter into the imperialist stage

According to what law?
China is far more developed than Britain was during their colonial conquests, so by your logic Britain didn't employ imperialist policies. I would even say China is following the same pattern as what Britain did: Following rapid urbanization and population growth, and the problems that come with it, they're expanding elsewhere for new markets and raw materials.

>Ppl with a real interest in socialism shouldnt be apologizing for the US under any circumstances based this fact alone

I'm not? I would never apologize for the IMF's ravaging of third world countries through debt traps.

>giving Kenya huge loans (that they cannot possibly repay) for building the Port of Mombasa and the Standard Gauge Railway, only to take strategic control over them after they default is literally predatory loaning practices.
I'll quote this article (whose arguments you hopefully will not discard for being tied to China):
>Financed and constructed by Chinese side, the SGR project has created 46,000 local jobs, cut the transportation cost between Mombasa and Nairobi by 40 percent, and increased Kenya's GDP by 1.5 percent.
No IMF "investment project" has ever achieved this kind of socio-economic progress for a country. Besides China tends to actually negotiate with Third World countries and never simply imposes predatory loans on them like the IMF does.
Same goes for the Sri Lanka "debt trap" drama that was played out in the right-wing media. It's plain Cold War style propaganda. See: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/commentary/sri-lanka-debt-port-borrowing-problem-not-made-in-china-11309738

How did I miss this thread this whole time? Good shit bros.
Well, seeing that China Daily is literally a PR-organ for the Chinese state that surely does make me a bit skeptical. Anyhow, assuming the stats are correct, boasting that the GDP has risen doesn’t counter my original claim that the infrastructure is built for China to take over (as part of their Belt and Road Initiative), and that the loans are handed out to exert political influence. I wouldn’t put to much weight on how fairly they negotiated with Kenyan officials considering all they need to accept any proposition is a bribe big enough.

>Chinese engineers worked 16 hours per day, slept on the construction sites in night, and some even broke down from the constant work and sacrificed their lives because of lacking timely treatment.
How on earth is this supposed to be a good thing

Responding to the Sri Lanka article, it’s strikingly similar to the Kenyan situation except that they were already facing a debt crisis. You don’t give out huge loans to a country knee deep in debt to build a strategically important port, only to take over it through leasing as a debt-equity swap after they obviously can’t repay the debt, through sheer coincidence.
Also awaiting reply to how Britain was capable of being imperialist when their economy was less developed than China-who can’t supposedly be imperialist because their economy isn’t developed enough.
>>Chinese engineers worked 16 hours per day, slept on the construction sites in night, and some even broke down from the constant work and sacrificed their lives because of lacking timely treatment.
>How on earth is this supposed to be a good thing
Not a good thing as such, but it does show them viewing it as a calling or duty, not just a job

You can find plenty of techbros who claim that they are improving the material conditions in Africa by working 24/7: "I'm doing this for the betterment of humanity" is usually just a big cope.
What are they "coping" for? They are rich and just virtue signal to elevate their social standing even further.
If only the Mexican Revolution started at least 8 years later...
they're not actually rich. they might make twice to ten times more than the average worker, but they still are exploited laborers working for billionaires.

Is there a good book about the development of capitalism since its inception up to, say, WW2 that I can read?
In my opinion not really. Like other postmodernists he tries to dissect power in a quite idealist way and without a really cohesive framework (he would probably reject the idea of such "frameworks" altogether).
But if you do read Foucault, you can also check out Daniel Zamora for some constructive leftist criticism.
Maybe Lenin's Development of Capitalism in Russia.

Theorylet here. SOme time ago, I picked up this pamphlet, because I was interested in the subject and wanted to learn a bit about Marxist Economical Theory. However, at page 37, when it talks about the failing rate of profit, my brain just stops working. I tried to hit wikipedia, but that just confused me further.

Can someone help me understand what exactly the rate of profit is and why is it supposed to fall?

Also, while I understand that the labour poured into a product can determine its value, couldn´t an established brand sell the products for more than its competitors, despite being fuctionality identical? Or would marketin and the development of a brand name fall under capitalist production costs?
Before or after the /leftpol/ split?
(29.99 KB 355x180 d6rftzuin.jpeg)

Profit emerges from money circulation, and is a result of worker exploitation. The time workers give up working for wages is less then the time workers receive back embodied in products and services they can buy with their wages.

The capitalists as a class cannot make profits on machines, because they have to pay all the cost for producing machines, unlike humans that reproduce them self's. As a result. The rate of profit can fall because of automation increasing the amount of machines relative to humans in production.

The rate of profit can also fall because the working class can do collective bargaining.

If the capitalists turn to rent extraction models for profit, and reinvest into unproductive sectors like high-end luxury production with larger margins (instead of worker productivity increases) to keep up profits by increasing their share on surplus rather than increasing the overall amount of surplus, they then become vampires that drain the life out of workers, i.e they use up the labour-power faster than it is re-generated. Which also leads to a falling rate of profit.

Usually there is combination of those factors.

What is particular to our time is that that expansion into new markets is no longer an option for keeping the rate of profit up, because the the hole world is captured. The neo-liberal phase has exhausted it's fuel. Wars are also reducing the overall rate of profit because war production is not productive and competes for limited resources. Additionally there is environmental harm causing a decline of "gifts of nature" provided by the bios-sphere, that will increase the cost of production.

Additionally there are full on retarded industrial cartels, like the car industry for example, that seems to be incapable understanding simple geometry, where cities cannot not have enough space for car based transportation. They don't seem to understand that people just want a transport carbine, they could explore more effective ways of making transport cabins that work for cities. Additionally there is a sort of psychological backlash against the car industry on the horizon. The car industry has marketed cars not only as status symbols but also as sources of fun, and this was sort of true as long as most people drove cars over rural roads, but now that more and more people are living in cites, driving cars is frustrating as hell.

The car industry is just an example, of a general trend of capitalist refusing to choose more effective technological configurations and with their political cloud the are capable of dragging out their demise, and hence further depress the overall rate of profit.

He was really different to FRanco
Like all fascists who espouse "left" or "anticapitalist" views, he was sidelined when he wasn't useful anymore due to fascism's innate need to suck up to the capitalist elite.
>He was really different to FRanco
The only notable difference I see between the two is that De Rivera didn't have an intense hatred of Jews
Rivera espoused Syndicalist views economically, it seems also he was a Monarchist, anyways many Falangists today hate Franco due to him not only cucking out to Capitalist but due to him merging the Falange with the Traditionalist Communion and basically withering away the Syndicalist aspects of the Falange, Franco and Rivera disliked each other
He was arrested by the Second Republic and tried for execution, there are many rumours that the Falange tried to trade him back but the Government refused, other's suspect Franco was behind the murder
Rivera often served as a middle way between the Reactionary Catholic Traditionalist Onésimo Redondo and the Radical Anti-Religion Syndicalist Ramiro Ledesma, without him there would be no Falange
On libgen there was this huge multivolume work that I saw and one volume seemed to be about his being pro-pinochest and authoritarian and seemed to he an analysis of these ideas in his thought
Hello guys, does anyone remember/can link a quote from Marx that goes something like;

Or something like that. I can't find it on Google.

Read some metaphysics. Anything by Graham Harman is good. https://www.jstor.org/stable/41300200?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
You don't need it for politics. In fact I guess some Marxists would argue Harman's brand of metaphysics is bourgeois indulgence. (Harman's answer, I guess, would be his philosophy of "object oriented ontology" doesn't contradict Marxist analysis of commodity production. The commodity is a subset of objects. It's just neutral on the subject. )
Metaphysics it's the most interesting branch of philosophy. Most philosophy is a challenging read anyway,so you might as well read some. (Otherwise it's like hiring a sex worker and just having a non sexual service. You might as well ask for sex as well because you're generally paying for time not services.)
I wouldn't bother reading Zizek.
>I wouldn't bother reading Zizek

Why not?
He likes metaphysics, and zizek being a good dialectical materialist is contrary to metaphysics
As a scholar Zizek is atrocious. He seems to skim or rely on secondary sources a lot. He has plagiarized from Wikipedia and presented a blurb from the back of a book as a quote from it. He is repetitive to the point that his book not just have repeated sentences, but whole paragraphs lifted from his other books and often not marked as such, and this repetition even occurs within the same book.

So I've read the first chapter of the Communist Manifesto, so far I've learned that
>That the history of all societies is that of class struggle
>Capitalism has played a revolutionary role in that it has altered the meaning behind work to that of wage labour, people only work now because they have to, they need a wage to survive, they don't do it because they have a passion for it. It has also changed the meaning of the family to that of money relations
>Capitalism was started by events such as the rounding of the cape, and the discovery of America. This brought new resources into the mix, and revolutions in the modes of production like agriculture and machinery i.e The Industrial Revolution.
>Society has always been made up of confusing hierarchies and classes, for example; in Ancient Rome you had Patricians, Knights, Plebians and Slaves; during the Middle Ages you had the feudal lords to the serfs. Capitalism has only simplified these social rankings to that of Bourgeois and Proletarian.
>Nations are no longer self sufficient, the "civilized" countries of Europe depend on the countries of the third world for their resources, while the countries of the third world have been made to depend on the first world
>The modern Proletarian live only as they find work, and find work only as long as their labour increases capital
>The modern Proletarian depend on their wages
>Proletarians have lost all sense of character under Capitalism
If there is anything I misunderstood or missed at all, please do point it out. Marx also stated that Capitalism is self destructive, but I wasn't following what he said when he said this, so if someone could explain that'd be great. I didn't understand pic related either. Also when Marx says the Proletarians find work only as long as their labour increases capital, does this mean that they only find work as long as it has any value to their boss/the bourgeois?
>Capitalism has simplified these social rankings to that of Bourgeois and Proletarian.
No you still get some remnants of feudal relations. There technically also still are slaves with slave markets and all in some parts of the world. Also capitalism has not just bourgoisie and proletariat, it also has petit-bourgoisie, labour-aristocracy, lumpen-prole (which today has mostly been transformed into precariat doing temp-work contracts). The bourgeoisie itself can be divided into national and global bourgeoisie, as well as industrial and finance bourgeoisie. There's also new theory that sees "communicative capitalism" as a separate category as well, in the sense that it seeks to specifically commodify human relations.

If anything it has gotten more complex since the middle ages.
>dialectical materialist
>And even more astonishingly:"The true formula of materialism is not that there is some noumenal reality behind our distorting perception of it. The only consistent materialist position is that *the world does not exist*... The notion of the world as a positive universe presupposes an external observer, an observer not caught in it. " (harman quoting Zizek)

So without the observer, the world doesn't exist? Is this the " dialectical" bit of the materialism?
It seems just like solipsism to me.

I haven't. Kolakowski was a critic of Marxism (he was actually a former ML who grew up in socialist Poland). Oddly, it was the favorite book by a Croatian dude I corresponded with, who grew up in Yugoslavia and served in the army there, and considered himself a democratic socialist and a Marxist in a broad sense, but didn't like Leninism.
IMO it's probably worth reading, even if you disagree with the conclusions, because Kolakowski knew a fuckton about Marxism-Leninism.

A People's History of the World
People's History of the United States
Trotsky's History of the Russian Revolution
10 Days That Shook the World
Hobsbawm's "Age Of" trilogy
Capital Volume 1
Marx and Engels Reader
Frankfurt School stuff
Chomsky selected writings
Late Victorian Holocausts (leftist answer to "muh Stalin's gorillions". Interestingly was placed next to the Black Book of Communism in the campus bookstore)
Don't count on Barnes and Noble for shit, all they have is the Manifesto.

A lot of big cities actually have dedicated socialist/anarchist bookstores, I recommend you check around. Used bookstores are also a good source. The one on my campus has a dedicated Marxism section that's placed in plain sight at the front of the store, I guess they think people will steal them lol.

Best way to read leftist theory while in the political closet is to buy an e-reader. Doesn't matter which model as long as you get one with a frontlit screen. E-reading can't beat dead tree books but it comes surprisingly close, even highlighting and footnotes can be done easily.
So whats up with our booru? i heard that the owner abandoned it? can someone confirm?

e-readers are cheap if you can live with the inconvenience of converting everything to pdf epub or txt file-format. Your eyes will be destroyed by lengthy reading from lcd screens, this really is not a luxury.

If you really don't want to buy an extra device than use text-to-speech software. This has the advantage that once you get used to the computer-voice you can crank up the speed to 300+ words per minute. Which is decently fast considering than most people average around 200+ words per minute when reading.
pdfs are shit because they are just static images

I'm looking for good biographies of Stalin and Lenin, as well as histories of the early Soviet Union, preferably newer ones written with access to the Soviet archives, that aren't full of Kruschevite lies, or bourgeoisie lies.
What do you guys think about Rhodesia and Mugabe
Avoid Kotkin's work on Stalin. It's full of mischaracterizations and outright falsehoods. I'm not sure what the best biography of Stalin is, but J. Arch Getty's work on the purges and R.W. Davies' work on collectivization are both good sources for the Stalin-era USSR. Lots of data and up-close accounts of what was happening with Stalin and the leadership during that time.

As for Lenin, there are a number of OK-ish biographies out there but I would recommend the work of Lars Lih since he deals with a number of historical myths. A word of caution - Lih can be a bit convoluted in his arguments and writing style meaning that you need to read his work slowly and think critically about the information he provides.

A catastrophe.
>Avoid Kotkin's work on Stalin.

anyone got any recommendations for books about the Korean war? Particularly about the American war crimes and cover ups and what not. Works from the north Korean side of things. There's a reason America calls it "The Forgotten War"
thank you comrade
>strange, even finbol likes kotkins biography.
FinnishBolshevik doesn't like Kotkin's work. What he likes are a few cherry-picked statements he can use to defend his own historical revisionism. For example, Finbol likes that Kotkin says that Lenin's "testament" was a forgery. (Pretty much the only historian I've read who believes this!) But finbol will conveniently ignore Kotkin when he calls Stalin "two-faced," "nasty," and "sociopathic." Anyway, if one starts to skim through Kotkin's biography it becomes apparent that his narrative relies on all sorts of mischaracterizations. The WSWS posted a huge take-down of his work. (Even though they're Trots most of their criticism has almost nothing to do with the portrayal of Trotsky.)

>anyone got any recommendations for books about the Korean war? Particularly about the American war crimes and cover ups and what not
"The Korean War" by Bruce Cumings. Progressive standard work. PDF copy attached.
>For Americans, it was a discrete conflict lasting from 1950 to 1953. But for the Asian world the Korean War was a generations-long struggle that still haunts contemporary events. With access to new evidence and secret materials from both here and abroad, including an archive of captured North Korean documents, Bruce Cumings reveals the war as it was actually fought. He describes its origin as a civil war, preordained long before the first shots were fired in June 1950 by lingering fury over Japan’s occupation of Korea from 1910 to 1945. Cumings then shares the neglected history of America’s post–World War II occupation of Korea, reveals untold stories of bloody insurgencies and rebellions, and tells of the United States officially entering the action on the side of the South, exposing as never before the appalling massacres and atrocities committed on all sides.
I'm also going to give you a link to the film "Oppose Bacteriological Warfare" which was jointly produced by the Chinese and North Korean national film studios in 1952, an expose to the world detailing the widespread use of U.S. bacteriological germ warfare such as insect bombs on civilian populations, and the defensive measures the Chinese and North Koreans took to protect themselves. The details in the film (which are true) makes it one of the more disgusting films I've seen, just so you know. This was of course covered up by the U.S.
Does anyone have the link to the red pilled north korean defector
Well I just went through and read all that. Very informative criticism. A shame as the hype around the book as the definitive biography had me wanting to read it. Maybe i'll read trotskys book about him.
There is hipothetically, no reason to believe lenin´s testament to be false , if one would look to prove stalin´s innocence such is the fact that Lenin never truly throws no type disrespect or despise for Stalin, only critisicing him for being too "rude" which in it of itslef is already very vage...
Some of these are pretty bad mental gymnastics to be honest. If America is so bad why don't Americans rebel against it? Is it possible that the North Korean state can pacify its population with propaganda and ideology in the same manner that the corporate media does in America?
Is there a comprehensive work on the marxist theory of religion? Something like "The origin of family, private property and the state" for religion would be great.
> Is it possible that the North Korean state can pacify its population ...in the same manner ... as in America?
No the DPRK simply doesn't have the nessecairy pharma-production for replicating that.
America has far more raw power to control its population than the Koreans have
America also has a far larger and more spread out population in which to do so.
There are some books by Ota Sik in my school's library, should I give them a read? I heard the guy was a market socialist but the titles of the books seem interesting
If the DPRK was even half as bad as it is portrayed in capitalist media, Kim would have suffered the same fate as Ceausescu decades ago.
i don't know about his books pre-80s, but after 70s he embraced market socialism as you say, and then socdem during velvet revolution era. i wouldn't read anything by someone who supposedly admitted to wanting to implement capitalism during prague spring.

The worst part? When you explain that this fetish, a fetish they hate themselves for having, comes from racism, they'll shut down and blame you for everything wrong with the world. When you explain that the taboo makes it hot, when you explain that racial stereotypes created the fetish in the first place, they'll refuse to listen, because you're a lefty, a jew, and a spoiled white college kid who simultaneously gets welfare and visits the synagogue every shabbat.

science is just random calculations in sense, no need to base everything off that. science doesn't know shit about ethics or morals and if ethics and morality is a spook, murder is acceptable unless you believe in some sort of non-aggression pact which I doubt any student of Stirner actually abides by, or the concept of respect, which is tied to ethics.

The popular stereotype of the researcher is that of a skeptic and a pessimist. Nothing could be further from the truth! Scientists must be optimists at heart, in order to block out the incessant chorus of those who say "It cannot be done."

Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts.

Begin with a function of arbitrary complexity. Feed it values, "sense data". Then, take your result, square it, and feed it back into your original function, adding a new set of sense data. Continue to feed your results back into the original function ad infinitum. What do you have? The fundamental principle of human consciousness.

Have you ever wondered why clouds behave in such familiar ways when each specimen is so unique? Or why the energy exchange market is so unpredictable? In the coming age we must develop and apply nonlinear mathematical models to real world phenomena. We shall seek, and find, the hidden fractal keys which can unravel the chaos around us.

Scientists refuse to use ontological methods to find truth and science knew everything we wouldn't need science now would we?

87. Science and technology provide the most important
examples of surrogate activities. Some scientists claim
that they are motivated by “curiosity” or by a desire to “be-
nefit humanity.” But it is easy to see that neither of these
can be the principal motive of most scientists. As for “cu-
riosity,” that notion is simply absurd. Most scientists work
on highly specialized problems that are not the object of
any normal curiosity. For example, is an astronomer, a ma-
thematician or an entomologist curious about the proper-
ties of isopropyltrimethylmethane? Of course not. Only a
chemist is curious about such a thing, and he is curious
about it only because chemistry is his surrogate activity.
Is the chemist curious about the appropriate classification
of a new species of beetle? No. That question is of interest
only to the entomologist, and he is interested in it only be-
cause entomology is his surrogate activity. If the chemist
and the entomologist had to exert themselves seriously to
obtain the physical necessities, and if that effort exerci-
sed their abilities in an interesting way but in some nons-
cientific pursuit, then they wouldn’t give a damn about
isopropyltrimethylmethane or the classification of beetles.
Suppose that lack of funds for postgraduate education had
led the chemist to become an insurance broker instead of
a chemist. In that case he would have been very interested
in insurance matters but would have cared nothing about
isopropyltrimethylmethane. In any case it is not normal to
put into the satisfaction of mere curiosity the amount of
time and effort that scientists put into their work. The “cu-
riosity” explanation for the scientists’ motive just doesn’t
stand up.
88. The “benefit of humanity” explanation doesn’t work
any better. Some scientific work has no conceivable rela-
tion to the welfare of the human race most of archaeo-
logy or comparative linguistics for example. Some other
areas of science present obviously dangerous possibilities.
Yet scientists in these areas are just as enthusiastic about
their work as those who develop vaccines or study air pol-
lution. Consider the case of Dr. Edward Teller, who had
an obvious emotional involvement in promoting nuclear
power plants. Did this involvement stem from a desire
to benefit humanity? If so, then why didn’t Dr. Teller get
emotional about other “humanitarian” causes? If he was
such a humanitarian then why did he help to develop the
H-bomb? As with many other scientific achievements, it is
very much open to question whether nuclear power plants
actually do benefit humanity. Does the cheap electricity
outweigh the accumulating waste and the risk of acci-
dents? Dr. Teller saw only one side of the question. Clearly
his emotional involvement with nuclear power arose not
from a desire to “benefit humanity” but from a personal
fulfillment he got from his work and from seeing it put to
practical use.
89. The same is true of scientists generally...
90. Of course, it’s not that simple. Other motives do play
a role for many scientists. Money and status for example.
Some scientists may be persons of the type who have an
insatiable drive for status (see paragraph 79) and this may
provide much of the motivation for their work. No doubt
the majority of scientists, like the majority of the general
population, are more or less susceptible to advertising and
marketing techniques and need money to satisfy their cra-
ving for goods and services. Thus science is not a PURE
surrogate activity. But it is in large part a surrogate acti-
92. Thus science marches on blindly, without regard
to the real welfare of the human race or to any other
standard, obedient only to the psychological needs of the
scientists and of the government of ficials and corporation
executives who provide the funds for research.

115. The system HAS TO force people to behave in ways
that are increasingly remote from the natural pattern of
human behavior. For example, the system needs scientists,
mathematicians and engineers. It can’t function without
them. So heavy pressure is put on children to excel in
these fields. It isn’t natural for an adolescent human being
to spend the bulk of his time sitting at a desk absorbed in
study. A normal adolescent wants to spend his time in ac-
tive contact with the real world. Among primitive peoples
the things that children are trained to do tend to be in rea-
sonable harmony with natural human impulses. Among
the American Indians, for example, boys were trained in
active outdoor pursuits — just the sort of thing that boys
like. But in our society children are pushed into studying
technical subjects, which most do grudgingly.

the people that initially build nuclear power were very much driven by the desire of improving the world and convinced nuclear power was going to bring about a new age of enormous prosperity.

Best Marxist critique of post-modernism I can read?
That is a hard one to come by.

POstmodernism is a very recent thought trend in the history of Humanity, and coincidentally, it appear just at one of the biggest crises of the Communist movement -the counterrevolution in the USSR and the disentagration of the socialist bloc- and marxist thought.

If anyone knows something on the topic I am too very interested in reading about it.
Hello leftists. Natsoc here, I want to know your opinion on anprim, is it good or not?
It's bad, even more reactionary then you guys are. Building the productive forces of society is what has allowed mankind to escape from slavery, and building them further is the goal of socialism. Communist can only exist with extremely developed productive forces. Blowing up all our factories to go back to shitting in the woods and dying of preventable disease is pretty dumb.

he's not wrong though. The entire fetishism of interracial is not only Jewish in nature but it lines the pockets of rich capitalists. Tbh, it's mostly watched by black men and exploits their insecurities because black women are hard to get along with and are the least desirable demographic.
Is there any study on this? At this point I don’t think there is enough evidence to bring this up in a debate for example.

>fetishes are jew-creations now
But the far-right is infamous for its lowkey widespread interracial fetishism. How do you explain this? I always thought it was due to interracial porn being more taboo among skinheads, and that turns them on like the animals they are
> fetishism of interracial is not only Jewish in nature
It's actually nazi in nature. Normal people don't care.

I don't even understand what the fuck you're talking about. Living in a 'post-truth' age doesn't mean that you can just disregard all empiricism with no consequences and it doesn't mean I'm gonna take all your bullshit at face value.

>its to divide the nuclear family
Fucking why? The nuclear family is 'under threat' but it has nothing to do with interracial porn or the god damn Jews, and there is no conscious effort behind it. It happens because the pressures of international capitlism forces women out in the workforce while introducing housekeeping appliances (like the washing machine, etc) that drastically reduce the need for the traditional housewife role (and thus the traditional male breadwinner/female housekeeper family model). At the same time, people have longer and more erratic workdays and they have less economic security than before, which also makes family life much more challenging.

The nuclear family isn't being attacked by some outside force like the Nazi brainlets would have you believe, it's just slowly becoming obsolete because of capitalism.
I swear to god, 99% of /pol/'s crackpot theories amounts to blaming the JEWS/"cultural marxists"/liberals/ancient aliens for something that capitalism does.

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.

>>221527 So Castro is now a Glownig... good to know.
>>223258 Fidel Castro was anti-gun? How do you think he got to power?
>>223265 >How do you think he got to power? his beard-powers <In 1960, the CIA planned to sabotage Castro's speeches by spraying his broadcasting studio with a chemical that would make him suffer similar hallucinations to LSD.Other plots included spiking the dictator's cigars with a chemical that would disorientate him, hoping he would smoke one before delivering one of his marathon oratory performances.They also tried dusting his shoes with thallium salts — which would have made Castro's iconic beard fall out.Like the hundreds of other plots against Castro, all failed.The LSD-like substance was abandoned because it was too unstable, the cigars were never smoked, and Castro canceled the overseas trip that would have given spooks the opportunity to dust his shoes.
