Is the best way to convert American libertarians to communism telling them that several socialist countries had zero income tax?

Like, maybe a Paultard would go full Hoxhaist if you told him Albanians used to be free from the tyranny of taxation.

All the answers assuming you can convert lolberts are wrong, the answer is that they’re retards and if they want the truth they’ll seek it out



on the environment they become monarchists and argue that aristocratic ownership of land for hunting grounds in feudal europe preserved the natural environment



Lolberts religiously worship authoritarian hierarchy, ‘‘tis better to euthanize them



Yeah a lot of lolberts have absolutely disgusting world views, and a lot of them are dogmatic about it too, the younger lolberts are more saveable than the older ones, and the lolberts that are actually confused workers than petty-bourgeois people.



He'll just yell and shoot at them. A handful of lolberts just end up on that point in the spectrum because they legit "just want muh freedums" because they see liberals and anarchists as cringelords and edgier cringelords, and obviously burger propaganda has tainted communism for almost anyone, so "bottom right" seems like the only appropriate quadrant to them.

What do we think about the idea of sortition? Could it be a democratic way of organising protests and workers councils? Discuss


Any method like this has strengths and weaknesses. When you talk about specific scenarios, you should consider your options and go with whatever works best for that organization or action and its goals.

Sortition has the benefits of avoiding corruption or favoritism, or power seeking, not to mention how much effort gets wasted campaigning. There's unfortunately little to encourage competent individuals winning, unless you put a lot of effort into making sure anybody would do alright. That can be a good culture to nurture, but it's also resource- and effort-intensive.

Since I am not knowledgeable on the topic, do you know of any resources which detail the inaccuracies of HBO's Chernobyl so that I can white-knight for the USSR when I hear people talking shit



there's a thread in the catalog



>>implying theory and communist media is not fun

Never said it couldn't be, but if that's all you consume it probably does get pretty boring.

And yeah, capitalist media can be entertaining, because basically all media out there is capitalist. Sue me. I wish we lived under a better system but we don't (yet). I'm not going to become a hermit that only reads Marx and watches old USSR state television.

I still stand by my point that in S3, the ebil commies are just a statement on the paranoia in American society at the time.



> it mentions how some in the USSR were willing to sacrifice themselves for the betterment of the whole.

The HBO show makes an anti-soviet mockery out of this. However the actual rescuers indeed stated that their sentiment of sacrifice to save people was the driving force.

>allowed to have fun

We know, but frankly I don't find anything fun in HBOs Chernobyl. It;s well acted and has great camera and effects work, but the blatant ideology is nauseating. Stranger Things isn't bad because it's primarily an 80s nostalgia adventure.



Yep I was mainly referring to Stranger Things since I haven't watched Chernobyl. ST has never tried to be realistic.

Last I heard the title to the university's land wasn't being bought by those gifts. What those institutions fundamentally are hasn't changed. Again, there has to be a reason why the gifts are necessary in the first place. If the universities are just a guise for the corporate rulers and all the plum university positions go to their kids, the gifts aren't necessary. If corporations were utterly dominant (and again, "the corporations" are not a collective hive mind in the first place), there would be no need for gifts, because they have the government and the academic institutions under their thumb already. It would not be necessary to send gifts of this size to buy the mere loyalty of institutions, nor are they large enough to simply buy outright the institutions. They are tithes.


Tuition and taxes (for the public university system and public school system) are what allow the academy to exist primarily. That is where they get the bulk of their funding.

Again, the people at top levels of the government are all elite educated. Most of the functionaries that operate the police state are educated to various degrees, and after Snowden I'm quite certain they're not letting in any GED cases and quickly firing anyone with any significant demerit. Abstract concepts do not have real material power. Guns and the direct relations of actors to each other have power.

Let me ask, what do you think happens when the money is no longer any good, and financialized capital is exposed as the fraud that it is? Capital is not some spooky concept that commands us, it is people doing deliberate things with their hoards of wealth, over and over again, because they can. The ruling class is quite aware of the nature of power since they, well, rule. Few in the ruling class are truly so retarded to believe in ancap ideology or the bullshit Milton Friedman sells; they know that money is just a means to power, and that money itself is a quite illusory thing, whether it's fiat or backed by some precious metal we're told is supposed Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



Your misunderstanding is believing the Academy has anything to with learning. The methods used in schools for poor kids aren't just ineffective, they're intentionally destructive and set out to confuse the child to make a simple concept like addition, subtraction, or reading appear complex and jumbled. This is especially apparent in how reading is taught. You could literally just hand the kids basic instructional material to learn to read, then booklets to learn arithmetic and further language development, and you'd do better than the entire grade school curriculum in the majority of cases. The unorthodox cases could be handed with simple tutoring until those children learn basic literacy and arithmetic and that would cover about 90-95% of the student population. Of the remainder, some percent are just truly uneducable for a variety of reasons, and the rest could still be handled in a far better way than what happens now (basically, if you are in that group that is designated problematic, the school just marks you down and throws you literally into the trash bin, you're life-unworthy-of-life).

From an early stage, the American education system was entirely about social control, and making sure the multitudes of Americans know their social rank and where they are to be assigned in life. That goes beyond the mere goal of making good capitalist workers, you're moving to a more exact form of social control and hierarchy, where the hierarchy is etched explicitly into the ruling ideology. Liberal capitalism maintains the fiction, in a vague sense, that all men are created equal, but the Academy explicitly cannot allow that; according to the Academy, you are an A student, a B student, an F student, and so on, and you are practically given a whole ideology to go along with that grouping. If you think that people can escape this grouping, you haven't been paying attention, or you're just blatantly lying, because I've never been allowed for a second to forget my social rank, and in my case the status is legally marked and my freedom to exist specifically, legally reduced.

The ultimate goal, which becomes more and more apparent every generation, is to make any sort of communicatPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



>If you have an institution with that much reach, that much control, you can't say they're just at the whim of capital.

Give me one example of "The Academy" (ie, the people and institutions that run the American university system) deviating from the interests of the bourgeois class (as a class, not the singular interests of certain bourgeois individuals) in the past 100 years.



Why would they have deviating interests? For the most part, they share the same general interests for now as far as government policy, because their common enemy is the masses of poor who keep demanding things like poor relief and retirement and health care. Class collaboration is pretty useful for building something like the national security state, so at least in major policy, they need each other to continue operating. The capitalist system needs the Academy in order to be remotely functional as an atomic-age national security state, and the Academy prefers capitalism to remain the prevailing mode of production because it is useful enough. The disagreements come in subtler areas among the lower orders of the Academy that are constantly grasping for more power in the system (and thus pass laws to enforce credentialism, something the capitalists don't really want because it increases the price of labor in the area they need it most), and certain parts of the bourgeoisie that want to do ancap shit (like, say, the Kochs). Generally, though, the Academy quite likes the neoliberal reforms, because it has put their class in a much stronger position and allowed them to run a very profitable scheme to extract money from the millions seeking access to the Academy's status. Things like NAFTA are great boons to the Academy because it pushes down the lower orders of uneducated labor and pushes them into dependence on the Academy's education credentials to escape the war against them. If I'm the Academy, why would I rail against capitalism now in a major way?

I doubt it would come to an irreconcilable class war between the capitalists and the Academy, considering members of the Academy are sitting on the boards of most of the big capitalist players, and they sit on those boards precisely because of their educational pedigree. The Academy, due to its nature as an organized and strongly interconnected set of institutions, will always have the upper hand in negotiations, until the major companies are just subsidiaries of the Academy's power and a useful guise to maintain economic control until an alternative can be worked out. The kind of economic system the Academy would like to implement simply doesn't include the poor workers at all, notPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Just finished Bob Nelson: 1501 Ways to Reward Employees - This is an upgrade to 1001 blahblahblah. On the front, it says there are over 1.6 million copies of it in print and it promises "Low-Cost and No-Cost Ideas". I love the promise of no-cost ideas, so I took the pro-active measure of downloading this from a warez site.


<• Pay for gym/health club membership.

Nice one. You know the title says 1501 ways to reward, it doesn't say good ways. Big numbers look more impressive, so the title isn't "Three Nice Ideas"; and if it were, you would just look at the summary at the back of the book without buying, and that's un-American (buying something you have no use for is at the very American end of the spectrum). Speaking of being American, I'm not, so at first I was puzzled by this other thing from the list:

Another business novel by Goldratt (with Ilan Eshkoli and Joe Brownleer): Isn't It Obvious? (2009). This one is about managing a chain of stores. Not as dull as the one with the software business, but despite that nobody here is going to read it anyway, so let's just skip to what the heroes have learned in the end:

<“But the demand from a regional warehouse is the aggregated demand of all the stores it services. Since we have about ten stores per region the aggregation causes the forecast at the regional level to be about three times more accurate than the forecast of each store. This is fundamental statistics. And the forecast at the central warehouse level, which aggregates the demand from all ten regions, is three times better again.”

<“Correct,” Caroline agreed. “And Paul’s solution is based on taking advantage of the better forecast that already exists. Retail chains should not hold the inventories at the worst forecast level; at the stores. Instead they should hold most of the inventories at the best forecast level; at the central warehouse. And use the flexibility provided by the relatively short replenishment time to direct the merchandise to where reality is showing it is needed.”

“Nice way of putting it, my girl,” Henry commented. “But this is where I got stuck, within the company boundaries. That’s as far as the aggregation train took me. You said you have a solution. Have you managed to push it further? If so, I must be missing something.”

<Proudly, Caroline answered, “If we go beyond the company’s boundaries, into the manufacturers themselves, there is no additional geographic aggregation. However, there is another type of aggregation that continues to improve the accuracy of the forecast.” Seeing that her father wasn’t following her, she explained, “Many different SKUs are produced from the same dyed fabric. On average, about ten different SKUs are made from the same fabric.”

Slowly, Henry said, “I still don’t see how this relates to our problem.”

<“I can relate to that; it wasn’t clear at the start for me, either,” she said. “We’re used to thinking about the manufacturers’ environment as a rigid environment: an environment where the production of large batches is determined months in advance. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



Sorry for the fucked up formatting. The whole thing is one quote.



The superiority of a planned economy really is obvious, I am cinvinced it will happen anyway even if it will ikely not be publically owned.


And finally, the last of Goldratt: The Choice (2nd Revised Edition from 2010, Goldratt died in 2011). Written as a dialogue with his daughter Efrat Goldratt-Ashlag, this sums up his views about management, and in a way it's more general about personal conduct and how to live. The daughter sounds a bit autistic and writes in awe about her Father (always with uppercase F) talking in riddles, like this one:

<Suppose that you see two people arguing whether a cucumber is longer or greener. One claims that it is longer because it is green only on the outside, but is long both on the outside and on the inside. The other claims that it is greener because it is green for both its length and its width. What do you think, which one of them is right?

They go through scenarios about selling apparel and bread and it gets kinda philosophical at times. What is complexity, Father asks with pipe in hand. When there's a lot of details to a situation so that it takes a long time to describe it, his daughter thinks. But that's wrong, and he hits her with his pipe over the head (actually this isn't stated, but I'm imagining it and you can't prove it didn't happen). The way a scientist thinks about complexity is in terms of changes and predictions. When there are a few fundamental knobs in a system, so that changing them changes how everything else in it works, that's simplicity. His message is to think like a scientist. When it seems you have found many knobs in the system, don't stop there, try to drill deeper and perhaps you will find in the end it's just a few common causes at work. He says you should avoid blaming others when things don't work well, since it narrows your thinking into searching for whatever fits your preconception while ignoring signs pointing in other directions and losing sight of the bigger picture.

It was OK. What should I read next?

There are equivalents for major English authors, but there's hardly ever any crossover. I'm still so fucking pissed that the work of Kracauer, Rosenzweig, Klages, remains largely untranslated, and then Marcuse's work largely out of print or difficult to get.

i feel the one thing that splits leftypol from other leftist groups is it's discussion of idpol. i think it's important to clarify the stance of anti-idpol. obviously it rejects the bourgeois idea of idpol as if gay rights were sponsored by pepsi. but i believe most leftist outside the sphere stand for this as well. i mean to state that being anti-idpol simply means that putting idpol above all else is unhealthy as it pushes away the notion that "capitalism is bad". It is also moot as almost all idpol related problems are the result of capitalism.

with all that said i do think it's important to instate that idpol related problems are still important problems (atleat with regards to how they relate to capitalism and socialism and what not). it's not that idpol should be ignored its that idpol should be answered with a more marxist analysis.

Let me just say I agree with your post, we need to analyze racism and sexism, and doing so isn't "IDPOL".

But I HATE the term 'class reductionist', because racism and sexism are existent *because* of class relations, they are not in the least bit in anyway separate from class.

We do need to diverge from class analysis to address racism and sexism, we need to intensify it to do so.

Remember back in 2017 when that person came around leftypol asking about the 'alt left' and claimed to be a journalist? Well I found what they ended up writing:


>I first heard about leftypol (a ‘portmanteau’ of left & politics) a couple of years ago from a staunchly anarchist housemate. Since then, although I’d known it was there, I’d never bothered to venture forth into that part of the internet. Part of this hesitancy stemmed from the fact that it is hosted on 8chan – a website created because its owners found 4chan too restricting. And, from a glance, that’s technically correct. 4chan, for all its woes, at least doesn’t have a forum dedicated to zoophilia. And while 4chan draws a firm line at child pornography, for the owners of 8chan, child pornography is an inevitability of freedom of expression – a freedom, to them, that is either absolute or not. The website also has boards that spawned the alt-right, as well as the gamergate movement. However, associations being what they are, I cannot blame leftypol for this any more than I can blame the internet for facilitating hate speech (technically you can though as denizens of /leftypol/ provide advertising revenue for the website’s owner but, hey, that’d ruin this analogy).

<Fortunately for me, leftypol, despite existing in a particularly wild part of the internet, was not home to any of this patently ‘not-safe-for-work’ content. Instead, I found heady and somewhat arcane discussions concerning, amongst other things, Soviet cybernetic computerised planning, the Kurd-controlled Rojava region in northern Syria and leading green-anarchist Murray Bookchin. And then, of course, discussion and dissection of Trump and the Republicans’ policy agenda, criticism of ‘social justice warriors’ and such movements and arguments with members of the alt-right. Most of these descended into petty squabbles that Russia, China or Venezuela ‘wasn’t real socialism’.

Why is it that even with the MSM crawling all over this site periodically whenever there's some kind of heinous crime linked to 8ch, /leftypol/ never even gets a mention?

Chernobyl: The Show Russiagate Wrote

Unfortunately, Chernobyl isn’t the show this event deserves. Many of Chernobyl’s glowing reviews seem to confuse the show’s goriness for truthfulness. The show is, in fact, the least truthful when it is the most explicit. A Forbes magazine article convincingly details how the show spectacularly misrepresents the effects of radiation poisoning. The New York Times also heavily criticizes Chernobyl for its “cheap theatrics.”But Chernobyl’s shock value isn’t the only thing driving interest in the show. Its politics are at the center of the commentariat’s obsession with the miniseries. As series writer Craig Mazin wrote on Twitter: “The lesson [of Chernobyl] is that lying, arrogance and suppression of criticism is dangerous. The flaws that led to Chernobyl are the same flaws shown by climate change deniers today.”On its face, this is a message that should appeal to the Left. But in its substance, Chernobyl is limited to this moralistic, personalized critique of power. It’s a political vision stemming from the Russiagate investigation, which sees the flaws of the Trump administration as rooted not in the class forces that existed before it, and which will exist afterward, but in the sinister machinations of a few bad elites. It’s this worldview that leads Chernobyl to disastrous historical distortions — which conveniently serve to discredit not just the far right, but its historical socialist opponents.
