Ceaucescu and his policies were definitely some hot garbage but guess what? Capitalist restoration was so bad it made him look good.


 No.2881156

Ceaucescu was so hated that he was the only eastern bloc leader to be actually shot in a violent counter-revolution. I've been to Romania a few years ago and no one seems to miss him at all. His personal mansion had solid gold taps in it and photos of him with the anglo queen and so on - I know because I've been in it. In other words, he didn't give a shit about communism and was just an opportunist dictator. Probably the worst Warsaw Pact country, not a good example of successful socialism.

How does one go about becoming a "successful" leftist academic?

I'm 24 years old with a dual-major BA in political science and philosophy. I've read more Marx than you and have also studied Hegel, Spinoza, Nietzsche, the scholastics, etc. somewhat as well. I really admire Zizek and Badiou and would like to pursue a PhD eventually. However, how does a comrade like me end up "making it" so that me and my ideas become as well-known as Badiou's and Zizek's? How do famous Marxist thinkers of the modern age become famous?

Everyone here shitting on academia don't seem to realise that Marx, Engels, Adorno and so on were all academics but that doesn't make them irrelevant. Are you even a Marxist or just some dumb fag who didn't get into uni and is now super salty about it? Also, Lenin, Mao, Luxemburg etc all proved that you can both be an academic theoretician and an active organiser and revolutionary at the same time. In other words, if you hate academics, you hate theory, and if you hate theory, you're not a Marxist. Fuck off back to /pol/.

To answer your question, if humans do have a sort of "default" behaviour, it is pro-social and altruistic. This makes sense, because Humans need others to survive, especially because Human children need help from adult Humans for a long time compared to other animals and mammals. Furthermore, Humans need both companionship and cooperation to thrive, altruism helps both of those.

Here's some links to studies and shit to throw at "muh human nature" capitalists, who believe we are inherently greedy. Which also doesn't make sense, because no one is going to want to help/interact with/socialise with an asshole who just wants everything for themselves.

>Is there some guarantee that they would have work available to them?

Stalin in an interview with HG Wells:

>What is planned economy? What are some of its attributes? Planned economy tries to abolish unemployment. Let us suppose it is possible, while preserving the capitalist system, to reduce unemployment to a certain minimum.

>But surely, no capitalist would ever agree to the complete abolition of unemployment, to the abolition of the reserve army of unemployed, the purpose of which is to bring pressure on the labour market, to ensure a supply of cheap labour. Here you have one of the rents in the "planned economy" of bourgeois society. Furthermore, planned economy presupposes increased output in those branches of industry which produce goods that the masses of the people need particularly. But you know that the expansion of production under capitalism takes place for entirely different motives, that capital flows into those branches of economy in which the rate of profit is highest. You will never compel a capitalist to incur loss to himself and agree to a lower rate of profit for the sake of satisfying the needs of the people. Without getting rid of the capitalists, without abolishing the principle of private property in the means of production, it is impossible to create planned economy.

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you are serving the Lord Christ.

Coincidentally, I happened to talk with a christsoc/christcom today while we were waiting to organize for the May Day march. He asked me about the reds and blacks and symbols in the anarchist block. Some moments later, the discussion between him and some old-school educated generic-socialist who showed up got pretty heated, when the latter suggested a pragmatic and individualistic approach to ideology, to pic and mix across ideas and faiths to your own tastes, and the former declared the strength of his one true belief in the Lord.

Fortunately the situation defused when I said it'd be better for them to step out of to eachother's way and keep a distance, saving their grumbling until after the march. The old-schooler suggested they'd talk it out afterwards by a cup of coffee at the nearby cafe-tent.

Not sure how things ultimately turned out, but at least they went their own ways the last I saw. Haha.

liberals are the majority that support this retardation, thats why i am posting here

Homosexuality is simply a mental illness, the human body wasn't designed to be abused by another person of the same sex.

Besides all the bullshit pseudo-science out there, there hasn't been any shred of concrete scientific evidence that supports homosexuality, the argument that "fags are born that way" was debunked by studies done on twins such as this one https://www.exodusglobalalliance.org/twin-studies-what-they-dont-show.php

>No one has ever explained a logical reason as to why they hate faggots.

Human beings are design to feel derision and contempt for things are dysfunctional and un-orderly, homosexuality is against nature the same way being stupid, fat, ugly, unkempt, smelly, and slow are traits that seem to abuse the function of a healthy normally functioning human being.

Your body wasn't designed to be fat, besides having any genetic defects you weren't designed to lack intelligence, so that being said the anus wasn't designed to be penetrated which is why so many faggots get HIV and get prolapsed rectums, if you abuse the function of something it will always lead to chaos.

>Being against gays is all just based on emotions and nothing else.

People feel hatred for faggots because they are sexually deviant predators, they are pedophiles, mentally deranged, sick, twisted, ridden with disease, suicidal, homicidal and overall sick in every regard.

Homosexuality is common in nature. Plus, it is theorised that homosexuality is an evolutionary adaptation that helped to provide males and females who could not produce children of their own but would work to help the children of their families and tribe - the 'gay uncle' theory. In essence gay couples could provide a spare pair of hands or in dire circumstances even a replacement set of parents for orphans.

There is a difference between 8/pol/ and 4/pol/. The former are staunch Nazis with a heavily moderated board, they have developed some kind of ideological unity, so it's harder to drive wedges between factions in there, the best way to deal with /pol/ is to just be their neighbour, they eventually come over themselves when individuals grow disillusioned with their ideology and contradictions in their line (being a Nazi but supporting Trump, etc.).

4/pol/ is much more malleable, you are mostly dealing with really young people who are to a large percentage just trying to be edgy, or have an extremely shallow political consciousness as they found /pol/ via the alt-lite pipeline of Sargon, Molyneux or Steven Crowder. Here active agitation and education is necessary to draw them away from reaction, most of them are still somewhat alienated/disillusioned with the status quo otherwise they wouldn't be on 4chan.

Why is it that proles around the world are by and large so class-cucked? I understand why they don't vote for communist parties due to cultural hegemony, material conditions not being bad enough in the first world etc. But they don't, a lot of the time, even vote for socdem parties - they either don't vote at all or actively support their own class enemies.

Examples:

In India, Narendra Modi, the right-wing nationalist, is leading polls massively. Whilst in office he has pursued typical neoliberal policies. India is dirt poor and has a large proletariat. Why do they vote for him?

In Britain, polls show Labour leading in the polls for the next general election (not to be confused with EU election). Yet they only take around 35% of the vote, when proles must make up near 90% of the population, and the proper working class (i.e. not PMC's) make up at least 70%.

In America, lots of white proles vote republican, whilst black proles seem to vote democrat (although I can kind of understand that because they are less racist).

I don't think I need to go on. In fact, there are very few countries right now where the left, even just the socdem left, is doing well. Why is this? Obviously a big reason why proles vote against their class interests is because they are religious or nationalistic - typically this applies more to rural proles. But why is that? How are they persuaded to actively vote against their own interests? The typical leftist response I have seen is 'they aren't confronted with a real alternative to traitorous socdems'. But this isn't true any more. In Europe we have Corbyn, Die Linke, France Unbowed and so on, which are all proper demsoc parties, and in the third world you have actual communist parties that are relevant, like the CPI(M) in India. So I don't think the standard answer to my question can be true any more.

>that needed to happen.

Yes for the bureaucracy to consolidate its power. But the purgues and gulags had no use for the working class. The murder of the original Bolsheviks and any principled opposition was definitely of no use to the working class

>And it was Stalin who lead the industrialization that made this possible.

Stalinists bastardized the five year plans based on the left oppostion of Trotsky after intially siding with Bukharin, then backstabbing and murdering him. Also you saying the "Stalin" was responsible is an anti-marxist conception of class forces. Due to its self imposed isolation, the bureaucracy had no choice but to rapidly industralize through brutal force in order to maintain its national sovereignty. Under a real marxist leadership, there would have been far more focus on buildiing the German vanguard so that Nazism wouldn't attain power in the first place and the spread of German capital and technique in Russia would have made the five year plans far more efficient and without the brutalization of the Russian peasantry.

>how exactly did Stalin repress genuine working class revolution? Reminds of the "talk to people who lived under socialism to see how bad it is"

The hundreds of thousands dying in Gulags, the original marxist leadership being killed off, the temporary ban on factions being made permanent, the destruction of soviet democracy, and the list goes on and on. As trotsky said, the property forms established and the gains of the revolution were to be defended, however the working class would need to overthrow the soviet bureaucracy for there to be true freedom for the Soviet proletariat and the victory of socialism. There was no illusion that capitalism would be worse for the USSR than the bureaucratic dictatorship of Stalin, however this was with the recognition that the role of Stalinism was to suppress the revolutionary sentiment of the USSR working class and essentially work as the labor arm of capitalism by supporting bourgeois nationalist regimes of the third world and abandon the appeals to the working class of developed capiPost too long.

He didn’t fund Communist parties around the world, instead preferring to wage a “cold war.”

How did Stalin screw up in India? Familiar with China but haven't heard the story for India before. From my limited knowledge India ended up with a "halfway" socdem constitution, similar to Weimar Germany or Mexico.

Socdems usually end up cooperating with conservative or right wing parties anyway and give away anything in their program which would help the working class. It has been like this since at least the 90's. Socdems aren't doing well because they stand with big corporations, foreign migrants and only offer virtue signaling while they are simultaneously responsible for stagnant wages and ever increasing cost of living (leading to work giving less overall wealth to the population). A lot of attitudes lower class people have towards those right wing parties is that they know they fuck them but at least they don't get migration and islam so they go with that instead. At least in Europe people are very aware that it doesn't matter whoever they vote they'll be fucked anyway. This has been the case in virtually every western country the last 30 or so years. The entire reason right wing populist anti migrant parties have become big in Europe is attributable first by failures and loss of identity of social democrats.

At Least 40 Members of White Helmets Admit Staging Syria Chemical Attacks

>At least 40 members of the White Helmets organization have admitted during recent interviews that they staged chemical attacks in Syria to provoke retaliation against President Bashar Assad, Foundation for the Study of Democracy Director Maxim Grigoriev said on Thursday as he unveiled the results of a new study at the UN.

>"We have interviewed … 40 members of the White Helmets, including those from Douma, who provided a detailed description of their methods commonly used by their organization to fake scenes,"'

>The foundation conducted a fact-finding mission in Syria and located both White Helmets members and dozens of other people who participated in the staged attacks, Grigoriev said.

>"Those people told us in detail how they had to participate in the staging for few dollars to buy some food for their families,"

>One woman recounted how she was given white burial shroud to wrap herself up in and then told to lay on the ground and smear her mouth with toothpaste, Grigoriev said.

>Another recalled being told to "close his eyes" as he was filmed being taken to a medical center by members of the White Helmets.

>"Amar Al Mustafa Ibn Mohammad from Aleppo saw with his own eyes how they simulated a chemical attack, they brought children, laid them down, put civilians away and filmed children as if they died in the chemical attack,"

>A White Helmets member in Douma told the investigators that local children were given candies as rewards for their participation in the staged videos.

>Grigoriev pointed out that the investigation cast considerable doubt on the findings of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which blamed Assad for chemical attacks in Syria's Douma in 2018.

>The OPCW's conclusions relied on falsified facts and untrustworthy or unidentified sources, he noted.

"Moderation", "concessions" and "compromise" are bourgeois politics. There can be only one.

We have always looked towards failings of capitalism as features, rather than bugs. It's time to accept sectarianism within leftism as a feature, not a bug.
