>BoP 1953 is a Geopolitical Simulation game which starts in the year 1953, the players play nation states and choose their objectives and methodology to achieve those objectives. Your actions will have an effect both on the external world but also on your own people, you need to worry about both the enemy without and the potential enemy within in order to survive. You will have to contend with other Player nations, but also with NPC nations as simulated by the GM team.

But the conspiracy element is actually another gripe i have with Dore. There are plenty of times where it's alright to think that there's something fishy going on, with the Syrian chemical attack for example, but Dore is WAY too quick to jump to conspiracy theories where they aren't necessary.

It isn't even a Parenti "conspiracies happen" kind of take, its a "everything is a conspiracy" take.

This is actually a result of a lack of theory Imo, if you understand how capital works and the aims of the bourgeois you don't need to jump to a conspiratorial outlook.

There was a thread here a while ago that set up this website, but I think I need to shill it a bit more to get it off the ground. I'm not the original OP, but I am a moderator on the site.

It's a pretty basic forum that doesn't require email registration and allows anonymous posting. The layout is quite old-fashioned (reminds me of early 2000's forums), but it all works fine.

Anyway, here is the link: leftist.site

WARNING: It will ask you for email when you make an account. This is due to the software used and is not necessary to make an account. Leave that section blank.

If you check the first thread I made it clear that leftist.site doesn't have to be final and I asked for suggestions for the name and domain. I cannot stress enough that nothing is set in stone, I want this to be a collective effort. If you have a better suggestion, please share.

>The fucking 2019 and people still don't understand.

I also had the same thought, of 'moving' away from the 'leftist', 'socialist' label because it became a bad word. But then I thought, you know what, our world-view is informed by leftist, anti-capitalist theory. No need to hide. No need to 'lure' people in and then spring on them 'haha! you've been hanging out with communists all this time!'

But maybe I misunderstood your point. I'd like to hear more from you, care to expand?

US sabotage may be behind Iran's embarrassing rocket launch failure

The US has been secretly sabotaging Iranian missiles and rockets for years, the New York Times reported Wednesday, citing half a dozen current and former officials. Since the program began a little over a decade ago, 67 percent of Iran's orbital launches have failed. The global failure rate for similar launches is only 5 percent.

"If there is one person to whom monuments will be built a hundred years from now, Peter Sloterdijk once remarked, it is Lee Kuan Yew, the Singaporean leader who thought up and put into practice a ‘capitalism with Asian values’. The virus of authoritarian capitalism is slowly but surely spreading around the globe. Deng Xiaoping praised Singapore as the model that all of China should follow." - Slavoj Žižek

Yes I imagine a future where an archipelago of Singapore style authoritarian Confucian Mirror's Edge esque police states operating as neocameralist corporate republics ala Nick land and Meniscus Moldbug. Rule in a world abreast by catastrophic climate change, famine, war and extreme wealth and biological poverty(The elect will be trans-human and have artificial intelligence at there disposal).

Singapore under the leadership of Lee Kuan Yew has pioneered a higher synthesis of eastern and wester civilization a country that has imminence economic but no political freedom. combining Anglo Empiricism, pragmatism, laissez faire, market liberalism and the broader western enlightenment tradition of reason with the Easter civilization Confucian hierarchy and Chinese strict legalism.

Lee Kuan Yew has brought about something that Debord calls the "The integrated spectacle" a synthesis of the authoritarian totalitarian concentrated spectacle made effective through a state of permanent violence and police terror and "The diffuse spectacle" e.g. western liberal democracy a haze of liquid media dense propaganda and advertising.

This has spread form Singapore to china by the way of Deng Xiaoping and from china to the rest of the world. When china becomes the dominant power in the next century and the American empire collapses the only other sociopolitical and economic system that will look stable and efficient

If they don’t they’re stupid, considering it failed to prevent capitalist restoration within its own borders.

>You don't seem to understand that it is material conditions - the way production is organized - that define how society functions, not desires of people. This is how Capitalism can function with workers hating their bosses.

That’s a super vulgar understanding of histmat. It’s not as if you just change the mode of production and suddenly old ideas and sentiments just disappear. The superstructure still is still capable of influencing the base, as Marx writes:

>Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past.

In other words simply getting rid of capitalism won’t get rid of religion, nationalism, or any other reactionary spooks that can motivate workers to resist socialism. Even after 70 years of socialism in Russia these things are alive and well, even among people born and raised in the USSR. Also, workers don’t simply consent to be ruled under capitalism despite hating their bosses. Capitalist states actively manufacture consent, and history shows that a foreign occupier has an insanely hard time doing this in the long term.

But if you do want to do a vulgar materialist take on this, consider that any form of socialism imposed on an unwilling population would necessarily lack a dictatorship of the proletariat. It would then be an oligarchy of bureaucrats, with little accountability or regard for the well-being of the workers themselves. Even if there isn’t exploitation in the classic sense, they heighten the risk of corruption, revisionism, etc which weakens socialism and provokes workers to anger and unrest. That’s assuming you can even call it socialism when it lacks a DotP.

Why do so many left-wingers from the USA and European countries want to bring foreigners (including illegals) into the USA and into European countries?! Exactly that only plays into the hands of the reactionary parties and politicians! Because they can represent themselves again as the protectors of the native workers! For example, when the neoliberal capitalists bring foreigners into their countries to let them work for them as cheap laborers, the neoconservative capitalists use this to portray the foreigners as the enemies of the native workers and to present themselves as protectors and by that win the native workers for themselves and their reactionary, neoconservative parties!

Okay my comrades. What do you think the world will look like in 20-30 years? (Given that there isn't a global revolution or society gets wiped out by climate change.)

In my opinion most of the world will become uninhabitable, with megacities on the now-temperate coast of Antarctica. We probably won't have a moon colony yet, but I expect some private enterprise to mine moon rocks and asteroids. Government survelliance will increase, and with it, classism. Many new jobs will need to be forcefully created and most people will make a living tending to machines.

There might be some revolutions in third-world countries, but nothing promiment. Migration will increase and reactionaries will be salty about it.

Did you just come from r/socialism or something?

Stop reading Montefiore and other retards like him.

The USSR was not democratic in the traditional sense, because democracy in the West seems to mean "Mob Rule" (regardless of what our politicians may say).

The USSR was a polity of worker soviets, which started on a local level, and built up to the federal government. It is a Cooperative Federalist system in that sense. No soviet leaders until Yeltsin were appointed power based on bloodline, political position or that kind of tripe, even Stalin was elected. If you just look at the Soviet Union's honored constitution, you can clearly see the evidence.

Quote: "Article 36. The Supreme Soviet of the U.S.S.R. is elected for a term of four years."

You can argue semantics but that is individual and not systemic. Farming Co-Ops and Industrial centers were given basal supervision and otherwise maintained themselves, giving only reports to the central government so as to make decisions and accumulate votes for them.

Free Speech and other rights are all in both of the constitutions of the USSR.

No it was not a perfect system, but as I pointed out in the posts I linked, it provides no fewer rights than the USA if not more, and to be judge on double-standards of how it wasn't perfect (when the USA is very far from perfectPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think that's rubbish, It's more likely the actual capitalist existence and the extreme escapism of slice-of-life anime (where guys get girls all the time) that causes them.

Watching young people trying to be Socialists nowadays is painful.

Most of them are still in that awkward stage where your radical views are being assiduously interrogated by people around you ("what about Stalin? what about Pol Pot? what about the Soviet Union collapsing? what about north Korea? what about what about what about???") and because they lack the theory, the historical insight and the data to properly understand and explain what Socialist experiments in the XX century tried to do and where and why they were derailed, they usually seek refuge in utopianism.

They start describing themselves as libertarian socialists, left-communists, anarchists, and try to out-do their critics by being the harshest critics of the actually existing Socialism themselves, because they think they're being perceived by others as such rebellious spirits so eager for liberty that they criticize Left and Right with the same relentless fire!! While in reality they're being perceived for what they are: confused young people too chickenshit to be associated with failure, and finding refuge in fantasy as response.

How, in God's name, do we fix this? The right theory and the right teaching of history can give people the foundations to process a thousand Stalins or Venezuelas without losing conviction or entering in panic "Quick! Find ideology that rejects all of those experiments in principle to avoid shame!" mode. But few people learn that by themselves, and we don't have solid organizations where more experienced/educated members can educate newcomers.

Let's post some cringey right-wingers. The alt-right, neo-nazis, conservative boomers, libertarians, etc. My folder is mainly MAGA/Kekistan cringe so any other type would be especially welcome.

Pretty sure it would set a strange precedent, too.

the wall is just symbolic of how cucked white people are by idpol. Instead of taking out their frustrations on the right people, they'll tilt at windmills constructed by the bourgeoisie.

I hope it does get built so then I can laugh at them when it solves nothing.
