Comrades have you started organising and creating some kind of structure to prepare for the crash that is coming?

I cannot stress how important I think it is for us to start organising before the crisis hits(mainly because it's gonna be really tough organising post crash under what in most countries will be basically fascism)

Either way share orgs and such stuff or tips that you've learned after starting working in commie organisations etc

Ok comrade even if you can't read economic signals you probably can read political ones

By this I mean the rise of fascism; the last time it happened in the end of the 20s begging of the 30s it wasn't just 38 crazy dudes all nuts casually seizing power all at the same time, fascism was an economical response to a real crisis; it didn't just fall upon us from the sky.

So if you've had your eye on international politics lately you've probably noticed a trend of neofascist parties from many countries around the world casually appearing here, there and everywhere basically.

Hi everybody.

So this is a new one.

I finally found a real life ANCAP (a friend of my language school).

We were discusing the repercusions of Brexit in the economy and of course he blames inmigration and taxation as being part of "leftist policies". Of course I said the real reasons of this problems is market globalization, privatization and lack of worker control AND then he began to ramble something, something, VENEZUELA, MUH FREE MARKET, THE MIDDLE CLASS IS FUCKED BECAUSE LEFTIST TAXES..etc.

Needless to say I had to go at the time, because I had a class at 10.

1. What should I do when we next meet?

2. Any sources that destroy his arguments?

Thanks comrades!

Since it's in the nature of humanity to be self-destructive, supposing this whole "proletarian revolution" thing never works out, wouldn't it be worthwhile as a plan B to invest in the creation of a non-self-destructive, autonomous, self-teaching artificial intelligence that will eventually replace humans when we have been killed off from our self-inflicted nuclear holocaust or climate change? We still don't understand our own consciousness, so the process of developing such an AI could also help us learn and understand what consciousness really is among many other things while we're still alive. Wouldn't it be interesting to know that even if we're all wiped out, this human-created AI is what becomes the ultimate stage of evolution of life derived from Earth and explores the universe making discoveries our self-destructive species could only dream of?

I think it’s possible for people to live forever. Humans can’t do it in the flesh they’re born in, but that’ll be fixable. New flesh, as through meatvats or 3D printing, is my real expectation. Consciousness transfer, as through nanite analogue neurons or ego bridges, is how it works in most fiction. I think the fiction take is wrong - fiction, go figure. I think the right take is that meat is miraculous.

The thing with climate change is it seems like a sad, strange, implausible ending to an otherwise beautiful story. I think it’s physically possible the way the nukular ending is physically possible. I don’t think it’s socially likely for humanity.

I think life extension will be solvable before strong AI, and that it’ll be way easier if we can take our best algorithmists and have them working for a few centuries. Proven talent, all the way.

Human nature is not self-destructive, or we would have gone extinct way before now, you don't need advanced technology for self destructing.

Also no, there is no need to sacrifice yourself for a techno god or any other kind. Is this a attempt at creating religion because capitalism requires more human sacrifice for being able to go on, with the information industrialisation ?

The point of technology is rising standards of living and rising live expectancy, if things go the other way without any apparent external pressures, it's structural mass murder. Ai could be used to convince people to commit suicide, which means the capitalist class has an invisible weapon, which means the burden of evidence reverses itself. So Every suicide is to be considered murder by the capitalist class unless the contrary can be proven.

As for humanity, it may become an evolutionary imperative to kill off humans that want to weaponize AI, at least initially, you might get away with this later on, where you have a benevolent AI to help you with making a weaponized AI that is not going to backfire. Seriously we got lucky with the technical and political malfunctions regarding the nuclear arsenal. I don't think we can gamble with this. Besides there is a serious anti-tech sentiment already.

I'm not sure what you are after here, it seems like a post made in bad faith

>Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

When are you going to address the real issue in cities? the LQ, or Lumpen Question - unfortunately many leftists have drunk the liberal koolaid with regards to the lumpenproletariat, especially anarchists but also idpol-ML's as well.

When normal average people think of THE LEFT (tm) they think of liberal politicians who are in favor of being soft on criminals who basically harm normal working people. These lumpens are not shitting on porky, they are harassing and making life difficult for normal workers, the guy who gets up early to work at an auto shop. This goes from the street criminals, to the addicts you see portrayed in the documentary "Seattle is Dying", to high end mafia and organized crime who played a pivotal role in the fall of the USSR.

The lumpenproletariat is usually co-opted by the forces of reaction as its easier to be a criminal in capitalism, especially unregulated capitalism, than a socialist society where all property is owned by the state or community!

Now I know you will say BUT MUH ILLEGALIST PRAXIS! Illegalist praxis is like 0.0000001% of crime in general. You stealing paper towels from the office is in no way compatible with muggers, rapists and other scumbags. The targets of the lumpen are usually other working class people, not the rich, because other working class people are who they see and interact with on the street in their daily lives, not the rich in their gated communities and high rise offices.

Yes, both rich and poor are victims of crimes, but the workers suffer more as they are living paycheck to paycheck and the rich have the aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The LQ is hard to answer because, unlike with Jews or some other identity group, what constitutes the L is a matter of opinion. It can vary quite a bit between different times and places with different material histories.

Criminals, in particular, are impossible to generalize since crime has an inherent political element to it, and the exceptions to this (i.e. serial killers) are statistically irrelevant. In the US, for example, there is an entire industry devoted to imprisoning as many people as possible to maximize rent-seeking, so the War on Drugs has led to a lot of disenfranchised prole kids doing soft drugs and ending up as hardened criminals. As a result, prisoners in modern America are much less likely to be lumpens than prisoners in Marx's time.

I think the BPP had the right idea: lumpens gonna lump, but people should be given the benefit of the doubt. Considering how butthurt they made the feds, they must have been doing something right.

The idea that there is any inherent class antagonism between lumpen and proles is what I'm trying to get at. I do not see how an economic class defined by its lack of loyalty to anyone can be /necessarily/ hostile or supportive of anything. Only conditionally, and I think it is a substantial failure to see their current conditions as their inherent nature.

>I never said the lumpens were uniquely hostile to the proletariat

This is an invalid argument. If you are going to define society into classes and the way they relate to one another, you have to define them by what makes them unique from the other classes and their relations, there is no "general" hostility.


 No.2884556

Do you guys even realise what Marx meant with Lumpens? He meant faring folk, vagabonds, Yennish people, gypsies. These groups aren't relevant anymore if they even still exist at all. Homeless are not Lumpens.

Just do. It's online and only like 60 pages or so. If you want my hot take on it I would say it's capitalism not technology itself which causes lots of these problems. I know it seems stereotypical to blame capitalism on world problems, but for things like centralized authority, power and system which forces people to behave in unwanted to them ways I believe capitalism is to blame. I could write more but I don't have time now. The book isn't bad, it also isn't really that controversial to be honest. The thing communism wouldn't solve is the surrogate activities. Which I don't think really is that of a problem to overthrow the industrial system. His idea for world revolution to primitivism is peak utopianism tho.

The thing is Stalin wasn't Hitler yet he's seen as equal for propaganda purposes. Gulags are seen as pretty much red extermination camps, which is simply wrong. It's claimed he killed 30mil people or so but most of those deaths are from a famine and WW2 kills, which I think I don't have to explain why it's bullshit.

Yeah but how is that not true? Its true even today, look at most Trump supporters. Some of them are the poorest in the USA and yet they still pick Trump because they want to maintain white settler colonialism. What's the biggest obstacle anyone faces when arguing for socialism to white people? Not anything technical, its the argument that socialism is a jewish plot to genocide white people and give "their land" (which the USA and Canada aren't even their land, they're stolen illegitimate states) to the darkies and muslims.

Even on the left, look at certain brosocialists who claim to be revolutionaries, but can't even give up saying "fag", "tranny" or "nigger" because for them not alienating other comrades is idpol, or something. How many of these so called anti-racist and pro-native socialist orgs did you see yesterday take even two seconds to tweet about MINW day? Zero, not a single one.

Giving colors to old socialists

A couple of researchers from the University of California trained a Convolutional Neural Network to predict the colors in black and white images.

research paper

https://arxiv.org/pdf/1603.08511.pdf

files

https://void.cat/#Jtu4v94xWmFnCnTaw9OQYGV9F8e:31a13379feb87423c501e0bfea6cba27:10da71fc9fc9ca4fba043c64cbba243f

How do I use this?

First of all, this neural net runs on python with opencv and imutils so you'll have to start by installing those libraries first. You can just use pip for that:

pip install opencv-python

pip install imutils

install pip if you don't have it

How do I run the model?

Just type the following in a console, inside the folder containing the .py files:

python bw2color_image.py \

–prototxt model/colorization_deploy_v2.prototxt \

–model model/colorization_release_v2.caffemodel \

–points model/pts_in_hull.npy \

–image images/your_image.jpg

After that you'll be shown with two windows, one showing the original image and the second showing the colorized image, you just have to press any key to close both windows but remember to right click on the image if you wish to save it.

He's right. There's a place for every race. And as you can see there is no white in that flag. There's no room for whiteness in future world

Croatian and Slovenian government are digging dead fascists and their collaborators from sinkholes, abandoned mines and underground caves and claiming that partisans are evil because they liquidated them without fair trial.

Basically during the war caves and mines have been used by all sides to dump bodies. So far, nothing strange, right?

In Italy those caves are called "foibe" and according to the fascist narrative (which became mainstream) MILLIONS of innocent Italians have been dumped there by EVIL communists partizans solely because of PURE racial hatred toward Italians. It's funny if you know how fascist Italians have treated slavs in occupied Jugoslavia.

As I said this was a fascist victimist narrative and a laughable one because no more than 200 bodies have been found inside those foibe and since they were fascists no one should give a shit, but this sort of "Italian holocaust" is commemorated every 10th February and have to put up with this bullshit every fucking year. See this picture? It's spammed in every newspaper, in every poster, in every website as a proof of titoist partizans executing Italians. Except that's a picture of a summary execution of slovenian citizens by Italian occupiers. Many know about this, but you can't go against the narrative of the "good Italians who dindu nuffin".

I've been reading Milovan Djilas' memoirs of the partisan wars and it's pretty wild. Communists threw fascists off mountaintops, which they deserved. Very based IMO

As far as prospects of a Crash in China goes, I'm giving you a Quote of the economists Mark Blyth "They are communists, it'll get fixed, don't bet on it"


 No.2883865

The global marketplace is all too interconnected to be stable long term. If China's market crashes they're taking everyone with them.

But that said Xi isn't a moron so it'll be fixed long before it becomes a problem.

I am an "international relarions' major in uni. What books should I read about the subject in addition to the reactionary shit taught in class?

Apologies for the relative slowness of the response. You won't find a great wealth of general primers for inter-governmental or communal relations here, but I always recommend more compendium like books such as pdf.related. If you're looking for more state-specific (USSR/Cuba/DPRK/etc) works, then you can specify either here or also over on /marx/, though it may be somewhat slow over there, and you can get more resources to help you out.

Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao are a good start.

Then Fanon and whoever else is relevant. Generally speaking, most oppressed countries have a communist party or a revolutionary party, and those parties have literature and theorists. If you want to know what's going on in said countries, read their revolutionary literature.

Read Blum/Parenti/Furr and then start sputtering and sperging out whenever the teacher brings up Eastern Europe or China.
