Chilean union bureaucracy pleads with teachers to end five-week strike

The Colegio de Profesores (CdP—Teachers’ Association) in Chile led by the pseudo-left coalition Broad Front is openly calling on the 80,000 public school teachers that have continued a national strike since June 3 to end their walkout and accept an offer that effectively dismisses their demands.

Two questions here from a person heavily sympathetic to leftism but who hasn't read much in the way of theory (I'm working on it but I have a large backlog):

Is Socialism in One Country true Socialism according to Marxist orthodoxy? What are those who subscribe to either position called? It is my understanding that Trots disagree, but what would you call someone who agrees? What's the most common position today?

The same question as above but for Juche. I've read various opinion pieces that state that the DPRK is essentially a fascist/natsoc state. Obviously not everyone agrees with that. Could someone lay out the arguments either way? What could cause a disagreement that fundamental? Does the DPRK have private property or not? If it doesn't, surely it's socialist regardless of it's strict ethnonationalism, right? There's no reason I can see an ethnostate couldn't utilise a socialist mode of production. However, if it does have private property, how is it not just fascist?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

If you want to know what Marx & Engels said on the subject read this:

>What are those who subscribe to either position called?

Non-"SIOC" orgs usually put the word "International" in their name. This is true for Trots, leftcoms, old-style socialists, etc. Parties that support SIOC are almost always Marxist-Leninists or adhere to an offshoot of that ideology. While it would be correct to refer to most Marxist tendencies as "internationalist", it wouldn't be correct to call MLs "nationalist" since they aren't strictly speaking in favor of nationalism per se, only the possibility that isolated nations can successfully break away from capitalism until an international revolution succeeds.

"Marxist-Leninists", we like to call them tankies here.

>What's the most common position today?

It's like asking what's the more common ideology today, so it depends where you ask, on /leftypol/ it is "Marxism-Leninism" for example.

>The same question as above but for Juche.

Juche is basically hardcore "Marxism-Leninism" with Korean characteristics.

DPRK does not have private property, so it can't be fascist even if it's totalitarian it is state property.

I'm trying to understand more about anarchist thought and there's a few things I have trouble wrapping my mind around.

By abolishing the present state of things and creating an economy where production is based on need. I know that's a vague answer but you have a vague question.

>>2935686

Why would a centralized system be necessary for that? They would be distributed the same way any other good would be, i.e. there would be people who produce the goods and other people who would see where they'd need to go. Systems that measure supply and demand don't have to be under one central, all-powerful entity.

In regards to the gilets jaunes, if I understand the situation correctly, their assemblies could form a basis for an anarchist revolution, if influenced in the right way. Essentially it's about building these power structures, be it unions, affinity groups or whatever, and making sure they're democratic and follow anarchist principles.

You either build them up or turn already existing ones into anarchist structures. Praxis is really about adapting your ideas to the situation at hand, and compromise is alright as long as it doesn't thread on basic principles.

Lifestyleists and people not organizing in such ways aren't that useful, their only contribution could be shilling. And if they do shilling wrong you end up looking like idiots who just smash stuff. But that's not organizing, so it's dumb.

Personally I'm a syndicalist. Where I'm at there's like 0 revolutionary potential, so over the net I'm shilling for any kind of anti-capitalism. The only thing to do here is build unions and wait for shit to go down.

There's no good hard left wiki. Instead of fixing this problem, we've been sitting on our ass. This site has been a viable candidate for a while now, but because the admin has previously written on it using a slightly spooked "anti-Stalinist" perspective, it has been rejected. That's stupid. We can turn it into whatever we need it to be.

Anyone even remotely knowledgeable should start writing articles. The internet needs a website like this. Write on whatever topic related to Marxism and leftism. Worker cooperatives, cybernetic economic planning, dialectical materialism, maybe even internet drama could have a place on there… Whatever works for you. At the moment I mostly want to get a place like this off the ground.

Is there a stupid custom in America than tipping?

I once got in an argument with a friend about this.

The whole thing is a scam to offload the cost of the server's labor onto the consumer, and instead of actually paying them what they are worth, the person dining has to pick up the tab.

Why don't any of these people form a union instead shitting on people who don't tip?

Does tipping actually just fuel this vicious cycle?

Because they've internalized porky's ideology of divide&conquer the proletariat. When I went to the U.S., it was funny how waiters disliked foreigners because they never tip. Yeah dude, because we actually come from a civilised country where waiters are paid a living wage and dislike this burger shit where you have to calculate 15 fucking percent extra everytime you go eat dinner so the waitress can afford vaccines for her kids.

the correct answer however is that people should be payed according to labour time, besides communist food dispensaries will divert all the labour to cooking this will reduce the kitchen work-load and make it possible to make proper food you know with proper ingredients not just warming up food-immitation-goop.

>Snyder famously did whatever he could to make the movie echo its source material, a 1998 comic from Frank Miller, as closely as possible…Miller was a comics hero, the guy who’d turned Daredevil into a noir fever dream and helped inaugurate a new era of grimly sophisticated storytelling with 1986’s The Dark Knight Returns. Once upon a time, the darkness and misanthropy of his work made him a fascinating, transformative figure. These days, every time he writes a bitterly disgusted blog post about Occupy Wall Street or whatever, it becomes increasingly obvious that the darkness isn’t a put-on. He really lives it: He really is a paranoid reactionary with an active imagination. That helped produce some great art, and it also led him to tell the nakedly fascistic story he told in 300, a story that became all the more jarring when Snyder rendered it as blockbuster entertainment.

<300 opens on a scene that literally glorifies fascism. The first thing we see is a chasm full of baby skulls, the remains of the infants who were deemed unfit….And the movie’s visualization of hard and strong is genuinely weird. The Spartans are all near-naked fitness models.

>The Persian side, on the other hand, looks like a lot more fun; the orgy pit, which we’re apparently supposed to see as some sort of appalling gender-fluid hell, looks like a more pleasant place than anywhere in Sparta. We see the emperor Xerxes as a 9-foot dandy with a seductive foghorn for a voice and a face full of jangling piercings. And the way Miller and Snyder depict them is just fascinatingly weird. A couple of early messengers are inky in their exaggerated blackness, and the Immortals, Xerxes’ regiment of elite fighters, are mutant ninjas who, when they get their masks knocked off, look like Jabba The Hutt’s palace guards. The bad guys are so othered that they don’t even seem human.

This isn't explicitly fascist you retard. Being anti-democracy or pro-monarch doesn't necessarily equal being fascist. There are certain fascists who believe in such things, but those things aren't fascist in of themselves. Otherwise nearly all previous monarchies and feudal systems would qualify as being "fascist".

Sparta certainly wasn't imperialist by the Marxist definition of it (which requires finance capital). Nor even by most non-Marxist definitions for that matter. Sparta, though sometimes in alliances and leagues with other city-states which it tended to dominate, did not as a rule engage in expansionist conquests like, for example, Macedon under Philip and Alexander or some of the Diadochi states.

>>2936479

>Plato was from Athens, aka Sparta's main competitor and complete opposite.

Plato was also a known admirer of Sparta. It's obvious if you've read The Republic or Laws. This is what the other poster was referring to. As for whether he was fascist, the answer is "no, because this arrangement didn't exist."


 No.2938239

>>2938236

Just to expand on the last remark, fascism is a political ideology within capitalism. The economic configuration that the ideology of fascism requires simply did not exist in Athens, so Plato was not and could not be a fascist, even if we might find certain resonances between Plato's political views and fascism currently. Detaching the material context from the ideological context simply isn't how a Marxist should evaluate the history of philosophy.

Has anyone else had fascists sit outside of their home and beam electromagnetic waves into their brain? They come by house in a variety of manifestations all disguised to look normal, yet they are clever façades. Today I saw a fascist vehicle that looked like my neighbor’s car. The mailman also kept a device in the back of his truck I sensed. Birds sit on my porch and watch me – behind those beady eyes I know there is no life. They are robots sent by fascist scum. I was studying Marx this morning when the mailman again blasted energy waves into my room and started to forcibly fill my mind with images of Hitler and the sound of his voice booming in my ears like thunder. Even putting the black bags back over my windows could not stop their attack. How do I stop this? Every time I try to read Marx and Engels — or especially Lenin the fascists try to disrupt my theoretical inquiries. Last week a fly on my wall turned out to by a New Swabian insecto-drone. It was especially disruptive and its beams felt like a brainfreeze multiplied by a figure of six. Covering parts of my cranium with reflective tape seemed to dissuade the Last Battalion’s insect aftempts, but the equipment in the more advanced attempts made by the Us government’s Nazi department are too strong for my methods. I’ve noticed that water distorts the beams a little. Three days ago I spent four hours in the shower to avoid their reach but was forced out by my father-in-law

Even though this is a shitpost by a probable right-winger, there is a point about how there seem to be too many people here (right now, at least) obsessed with fascism rather than the much more dominant liberalism. I suppose this is a side-effect of Trump, but one shouldn't lose sight of liberalism as the principal target, with fascism being simply the degeneration of liberal ideology amidst its mounting contradictions and failures.

You're right that the reasoning is rather sloppy. "I am this thing, and I refuse to argue that I am, since arguing is dangerous for me." Also, is someone really denying your personhood by denying the claim that one can be another gender? Unless personhood amounts to one's gender claims or one's ability to make gender claims, I wouldn't think so. And is epistemological skepticism necessarily Pyrrhonian? He equates the two, but that claim isn't demonstrated (the epistemological skepticism is even read as simply motivated by hatred). I've been slightly supportive of trans issues, but this will convince no one who isn't already convinced. This sort of reasoning makes me even more ambivalent about the support.

As an aside, I was listening to NPR recently and heard some article mentioning Contrapoints in the context of "battling online extremism." If milquetoast liberalism sees this sort of "leftism" not only as no danger at all but in fact positive and anti-extremist, why would we view Breadtube and the like as being on our side? Breadtubers seem to be only the ideological factotums of new liberal mores. Breadtube is where young people go to learn how to behave in the PMC workforce.

What are the coolest lefty cities?

I've lived in San Francisco, Austin, Philly, and Portland. SF was a neo-liberal hellscape. Austin is becoming SF. Portland and philly are chill, but idk. Doesn't have to be exclusive to the US and doesn't have to be a large city.

MOD Edit: Get this lifestylist shit out of here

I've been thinking about NYC, but it just seems too expensive.

we had a thread on the show chernobyl already. now, the new season of stranger things has soviet scientists as the main enemy.

soviets shot puppies in chernobyl and in stranger things it starts off with a shot of the soviet flag and a soviet scientist soldier guy choking the shit out of somebody. lmao

porky is getting so scared of socialism slowly returning that they are resorting to 80s rambo-tier propaganda to scare the zoomers off into supporting neoliberlaism.

Fuck this shit. I’m done with this now.

Let’s start a collective communist entertainment production group. We can generate our own music, television shows, books, comics and movies. Write up some guidelines on how to participate, and setup a method to distribute. I’m not even sure what that would look like, because the internet and modern technology dramatically expands upon the capabilities of the older communist artist collectives. I mean thinking about it, Orson Welles would have been unambigiously excited to have a 20 pound celeron processor powered 2002 pc laptop with a shitty webcam and Windows Movie Maker to have filmed and edited Citizen Kane with. Then he would have shit his pants to have the WWW at 1995 level to promote it with. I don’t know what it would look like at all, but the benefit would be collaborative and distributive. Someone does music, a few people do voice acting, someone does animation, another does art, someone does whatever… Then they help each other. Either way we need to counter this corporate entertainment shit show of anti-leftist propaganda. The right wing also produce and sponsor a ton of indie and collective entertainment. Fuck em all! Stalin did nothing wrong.

I've had the misfortune of living in Canada, Australia, and the United States, and I have to ask: why are new world leftists so obsessed with importing European politics/filtering everything through the lens of WWII?

You'd think the genocidal legacy of English colonialism/capitalism would provide enough grisly source material to establish a counter-narrative, without having to conjure visions of nazis under our beds, yet the spectre of comic book fascism occupies an outsize portion of left wing consciousness. This histrionic obsession with the most cartoonish manifestation of right wing ideology does enough to alienate normal white people, who don't witness brownshirts goosestepping through their suburbs, let alone black people, who get fucked over by landlords and the police–not nazis.

>why are new world leftists so obsessed with importing European politics/filtering everything through the lens of WWII?

Because there are actual Neo-Nazi's running around killing people which affect these nations personally and their liberal society's. WW2 wasn't even a hundred years ago there's many veterans who fought fascism today or people who grew up under war conditions or countries ravaged by War and Neo-Fascists who would of been shot at are running around empowered or feel empowered by the current state of politics, I mean it's pretty easy to draw a TRUMP IS LITERALLY HITLER picture when he's locking children in places they don't even get toothbrushes and proper medical care where guards rape their mothers and the idea of the "subhuman" Hispanic who both takes all your jobs and doesn't work at all is growing. Trump is no doubt a turn of Liberalism towards it's Fascistic tendencies and this should be exposed and no doubt Trump has woken up people who have realized how did someone like him get into power.

Also Leftists are already aware of the horrors of colonialism it's just there's no redcoats walking around Africa now it's Neo-colonial warlords and debt enslavement which are already apart of Capitalism where as Fascism we can draw a direct correlation to the deteriorating conditions in the United States and the growth of the far right and this will continue and as such must be fought tooth and nail with a united front if need be.

A huge chunk of the bourgeoisie in these countries actually supported the Nazis, and all three of those you mentioned (Canada, Aus, USA) were flooded with "refugee" Nazi officials and scientists brought in by the CIA and their other intel organizations. To this very day, top politicians, officials, and porkies in these countries have close ties with Nazis. For example, the Bushes, Chrystia Freeland, Ford, Disney, IBM, etc. etc. It would be wrong to ignore this.

What you're missing is the CONTINUITY involved here. The Nazis were not some kind of unique European/German politics. Hitler was given millions of dollars by US businessmen. He took inspiration from the USA (colonization and slavery) for his "Lebensraum" genocidal colonization plans. Then when his war machine ran out of steam, the USA took over and re-organized it as NATO. Nazism was a major manifestation of the general praxis of the vanguard of the world bourgeoisie.

As well, as >>2938161 points out, it is hard to ignore the various "new world" reactionary groups that are declaring allegiance to Nazism.

A problem I see is a lot of Leftist groups still have the baggage of the Cold War in which Russia/China are good while USA and etc are evil.

This I see happening with how a lot of times the only possible source for news is from Russia/Iran/Venezuela but this thinking is Reactionary.

How do we work to deal with this.
