In >>56417, someone asked me to write a short introduction to Spinoza, which I did, as attached to the thread. I also included an english translation of Frederic Lordon's essay which explains directly how capitalism manages to still quench all class consciousness on an individual level using Spinozist conceptual tools. I urge anyone who's interested in theory to check out Spinozist thought, maybe we could get a discord started if enough people are interested in getting familiar with a key thinker of western philosophy.

Bourdieu's Distinction is a good read.

>Is he a good starting point or is too complex for a beginner?

He's very difficult if you start by the ethics (especially if you don't skip book 1) but there's no reason a patient and dedicated person can't get a firmer grasp on his thought eventually.

There is no shortcut really, try to listen to online lectures about Spinoza and eventually you'll feel more and more accustomed to his concepts and way of thinking. There are other messages ITT suggesting to be familiar with stoician and epicurean philosophy which is a great tip.

The experiences of the USSR, Cuba, Vietnam, etc prove that "socialism in one country" does not work. Capitalism is a global system and the drive for profit will penetrate any "socialist" nation eventually.

The only way to achieve socialism and end capitalism is through the dissolution of the nation-state and borders. Competition among workers of the world promoted by neoliberalism via opening up of borders ensures the creation of a global proletariat.

As neoliberalism would continue to open up all parts of the world for exploitation, zero tariffs and easy flow of goods would become necessary to keep up profits. Therefore neoliberalism if continued, would both unite workers throughout the world and keep them in tighter chains through increased exploitation.

Once the nation-state system dissolves under neoliberalism, the bourgeoise would not be able to retreat to social democracy or fascism in order to escape crisis. A globalized proletariat, once bound together by rank and file unions led by a vanguard party, would then be able to completely dismantle the capitalist system and move towards communism.

Neoliberalism is a necessary evil.

I don't see why the falling apart of the USSR means that socialism (in one country) is always doomed to ultimately fail. I don't want future socialism to be an exact replica of the Soviet model but I have my doubts about how realistic the advent of global socialism is.

>Cuba is adopting market reforms and privatization. China and Vietnam have fully embraced capitalism.

Don't be an idealist; considering how isolated its conditions are, a country like Cuba needs to liberalize to a certain extent to survive. I have some faith the government is still aiming at socialism, and as long as a full bourgeoisie doesn't develop I don't think the legalization of private property will pose serious problems to reverting to socialism when the time is ripe. Cuba still adheres to a large number of socialist policies.

Why are they right about literally everything? I've followed a lot of news sources but so far nothing beats the analysis given by the WSWS. Its extremely revealing looking at their past analysis of events such as 9/11 and realizing that while publications like the Nation took a reactionary stance, the WSWS stood by socialist principles and presented a scientific analysis of events in line with Marxism.

>Who are we going to fight? Europe? Our FDI-dependent bitches in China? The economically and militarily microscopic paper tiger that is Russia?

There is a reason that capitalists around the world are increasing their military budgets.

https://www.sipri.org/media/press-release/2018/global-military-spending-remains-high-17-trillion

That reason is simple. It is to prepare for world war. There's been increased sanctions placed on Iran, t*rkey, Russia, and now trade war threatened with China as well as tariffs threatened on Europe in order to expand up areas for exploitation and destroy competition for global hegemony. The global breakdown of capitalism with its increasing asset and speculative bubbles is bound to explode and the US is clearly making a conscious decision to use its military power to retain its hegemony.

Who "we"(identifying with the United States seems to imply that loyalty to nation is greater for you than loyalty to the global proletariat) are going to fight depends entirely on many variable factors but whether the US can easily crush its opponents matters far less than the fact that millions of regular people will suffer due to the coming conflicts. I highly suggest you take time and read Capital by Marx to have a greater understanding of how capitalism functions and to look at the example of WW1 and WW2 to gain a picture of how capitalism restores its rate of profit.

>Closing the borders to human rights arbitrage is the first step to giving economic leverage to workers, so we can put the screws to porky. Seriously, what exactly is it that you imagine mass economic immigration does to help 3rd-worlders, anyway?

And it is a bit sad that I have to explain what economic migrants from third world countries have to gain from moving to the west. Places destroyed by imperialism and filled with life threatening conditions. Of course they move to improve their material standard of living. As for what it will "fix", it wont fix anything besides providing temporary relief to the most oppressed, which is a net good. Of course only the overthrow of capitalism will help the world but to do that the nation-state would also need to dissolve, and tightening up migration serves mainly to increase the power of the nation-state. By closing off migration, workers of the world become more subservient to the nation rather than their class, and nationalism will serve to make workers of the world fight against one another rather than fight against their oppressors.

>Look, the regulatory regimes that aid labor, and impede capital, are bound in the nation state right now, correct? Since our borders delineate where these regulations are and aren't in effect, who benefits by weakening these borders against other nation states with laws that favor capital more against labor?

As I had pointed out earlier in this post >>82356 and also by an elementary understanding of history, it is clear that labor unions function as a nationalist arm of labor. After all the fascist regimes of Hitler, Franco, Salazar, etc, all could hold on to power in large part due to labor unions deciding to fuse with the capitalist state in order to quell strikes and working class discontent. In the US, the largest labor unions like the AFL-CIO have a long history of supporting imperialism abroad as well as a long history of making sure that strikes are confined and don't spill over to the wider proletariat. An unaccountable union bureaucracy breeds corruption and collusion with the capitalist class, their goal is to give out crumbs in order to quell working class opposition and contain it. Rank and file workers unions led by a vanguard party is the only proven way to overthrow the capitalist class and for this to occur the union bureaucracy must be desPost too long.

There's a guide here on forming an antifa group that is a must read:

https://itsgoingdown.org/forming-an-antifa-group-a-manual/

Ninety-five percent of it falls under this part: "Track white nationalist activity." The reason UTR fucked up the neo-Nazis so bad is all those guys were livestreaming everything while showing their faces, and local antifa groups figured out who they were, or in a lot of cases, already knew who they were. The vehicular attack on the crowd was extraordinarily bad P.R. for the fash but the info on people who attended brought consequences. People lost their jobs; their family members disowned them, etc. The most effective groups will track these guys to the ends of the earth.

Where I live, I will say straight-up that the neo-Nazi groups are more prone to acts of aggression against the left. Not against antifa. I mean they will show up at a normie immigrant rights' group screaming "strong nation" in their faces and flip their tables over. This is in America. Most people (talking about the general public here) will not tolerate neo-Nazis however and where the antifa groups can be successful is outing them so people can recognize who it is when those things happen. Act local. One of the things the fash in America do is organize clandestine meet-up groups in bars and will try to start shit once they have a few drinks, so you can get the bar owners and so on to recognize these people and kick them out.

Grassroots community awareness really.

If anyone thinks anti-fascism is going to actually change anything, then they're mistaken and I agree. But when I got involved in socialist groups, my impression of the anti-fascists changed because I saw what neo-Nazis were doing first hand. People I know were singled out and targeted by local Nazis. If you think you can just organize for socialism and not have to think about self defense or getting harassed, or even the possibility you might get attacked, then you're extremely naive.

A problem with Marxists is their tendency to divide the masses of people into different class groups and using the hierarchy of groups to make it seem as if only the proletariat is bound in chains. Under capital all classes are enslaved. The bourgeoise and the petty-bourgeoise are both enslaved by capital and thus have to engage in anti-social and immoral activities in order to preserve themselves. This leads to a rise in mental illness in society which is evidenced by the high rates of depression afflicting all members of society including the top.

I think that Marxism needs to rebrand itself as the emancipatory vehicle of all people, not just the proletariat.

>Gender is a "spook" and should be openly mocked. There is literally nothing wrong with transgender people.

>gender is a spook that doesn’t exist but biological sex does exist

Now here is a point where you people go full retard.

If it's just a spook that doesn't exist then why do we even have transgender people in the first place? why do these people feel like the opposite gender so much to the point where some of them even go as far as to chop parts of their own bodies?

Do you know that the biological part do have a great influence in our behavior? do you know that hormones can completely change how a person think and behave? do you know that men and women have different main sex hormones that influence their behavior, their very minds, their likes and dislikes?

You people would love for your narrative that gender is just an oppressive imposition put on people to be true but back to the first two questions the answer is pretty obvious and simple, gender is something that you "feel" like, not something imposed upon you because if that was the case then trans/gay/homo/lesbian/whatever people wouldn't even exist in the first place because nobody in their right minds try to raise their kids to be gay, what happens is that homo people do have the brains of the opposite gender for some reason and that doesn't make gender a spook, on the contrary, it actually reinforces gender as something real.

>millennials having children

Look, anon, I'm sorry to break this to you, but by most definitions, that's been happening for quite a while now. Even (you) may be a millennial!

>Most of what you're citing doesn't prove anything about the morality of an adult man sexing a teenage girl who wants his dong.

The stuff about the overwhelming majority being older men and younger girls, and the high divorce rate, suggesting pump&dump patterns? The other figures were more to point out how utterly unimportant this "issue" is.

>Or at least that used to be the case

>The Democrats blatantly rigged the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders

Birdnie's lead over Shrillary was just north of 10 percentage points. Big, but not the sort of landslide needed to guarentee a yuge scandal. I'll admit the fact that lawsuits and criminal trials haven't happened, even taking into account Sanders' own lack of assertiveness, is pretty pathetic.

>You've probably already gone past this figure.

By "dedicated socialists", I mean people who know what the labor/capitalist class distinction is, why left/right idpol are the exact same, and that socialism means something beyond "duh gubmint does stuff".

>Here's a statistic for you. Gays are 1% of humanity. Therefore nobody should care about them.

Maybe not nobody, but certainly a lot less people should spend energy on them, especially in areas (nearly all) they have little or nothing to do with.

Can you distill your theory in a 10-minute conversation? What would you say a leftist organizer needs to know or understand in order to do the organizing necessary to move beyond capitalism? What is the bare minimum amount of reading?

The most important thing is being able to talk to people without sperging out and connecting to their struggles. Reading every ounce of leftist theory won't necessarily give you that.
