I'm not sure but I won't dismiss Marx or anything. I am not well read on him frankly. But what little I do know doesn't seem to fall in line with my beliefs so much. What I believe about consciousness is important to me. The main problem I have with marxism, which could be a misinterpretation on my end, is that it seems like Marx pushes an Us vs Them idea the proletariat vs the bourgeoisie. I think this is really an extension of Good Vs Evil and I think the worst thing you can do with that kind of philosophy is absolve yourself of sin. The right philosophy to me is to recognize that you are the source of evil and that it is a universal trait of humankind. The source of evil is the ego which binds us to our body and identity. That doesn't mean ego is necessarily evil just that it is the cause of evil. The thing about ego though is that it is inescapable that's the human condition. I say my view on consciousness is important because I think the ego extends to your physical body. The "mind" is not really one cohesive whole it has parts to it there is an entire unconscious within it. I believe in a real sense the physical body is part of a shared unconscious (but I really would say it is a shared yet separate conscious) which is essentially God. I guess my main point is I won't accept a philosophy that doesn't accept the inherit evil within ego because it will only breed more evil. I don't know enough about marxism to say whether it is true or not.



>Marx pushes an Us vs Them idea the proletariat vs the bourgeoisie. I think this is really an extension of Good Vs Evil

I can't really think of a time where Marx thinks of things in the categories of good/evil. The closest he comes to is the manifesto where he describes economic relations as "in a word" "oppressor and oppressed", but the oppressors being morally evil is tenuous (I think Marx would intensely disagree, as class oppression isn't individual and thus cannot be solved by individual abnegation), and the oppressed being morally good is obviously nonsense.

>and I think the worst thing you can do with that kind of philosophy is absolve yourself of sin.

I'm not even sure if Marx was a moral realist, I *think* he was, but only because he consistently uses the terms 'justification' and 'freedom', but it's possible that he thought morality itself was a reified distortion of aggregate desires or something, not really sure.

>Ego being the source of evil

Individual interests fundamentally have the potential to go against the aggregate interests for Marx at the very least, so that's something somewhat similar. I am a moral realist, but I don't see how ego as you define it can be the cause of Evil without being the cause of all Good, it seems like it should define both.

<I'm giving you this analysis from Hal Draper's Marx's Theory of Revolution so take it with as much salt as you see fit

Marx in his early communist years at least (like 1844) thought that the proletariat could become the revolutionary class meaning that its immediate interests (as a class-not as a group) represented the interests of society as a whole. This is similar to the proletariat being fundamentally 'good', however this statement says little about the individual members of the proletariat, which could pursue their own individual interests at the expense of the class interest and ultimately societies' interests.

Marx also hated the lumpen-proletariat (translated as including prostitutes and beggars, but every time I've seen the term so far it has meant violent crimPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Thank you for the insight anon.

>but I don't see how ego as you define it can be the cause of Evil without being the cause of all Good

I would say that evil is contained within ego but good exists beyond ego.

>Anyway where did you get your philosophy from? Berkeley?

No I mostly got it from a bunch of different people/observations/experience. I am not as well read in philosophy as I would like to be. Looking into Berkeley though and at least his views on idealism seem similar to what I believe.

I am new to the left and have a vague understanding on orthodox Marxism.

But everything that happened after 1940 seems confused for me.

What exactly is Postmodernism and the Frankfurt school. How do they relate to each other?

And what is the role of Freud in this? Why do many self-described Marxists have such an interest in Freud, someone who doesn't seem to be based on material reality at all.

Rather than racial affirmative action (favor blacks over whites over asians) or gender affirmative action (favor trans people over women over men) what we really need is an affirmative action based on class. When we see racial affirmative action at universities, hard-working Asian kids are turned away in favor of some middle class black kid.

What if the hiring quotas for a collective were based on the class background of an applicant? eg 80% of the people at a company have to have under $1000 in the bank, not own a car, be on food stamp, etc etc. It would provide for a much better workplace ethic if everyone's capital were determined together by the success of their collective.

Also abolish internships. Only rich kids can afford to be interns so companies that favor interns are really discriminating against middle / lower classes. Fuck trust funders, fuck kids will millionaire and billionaire parents, fuck the children of landlords and investors and attorneys and all the rest.

Basically if your family has money / connections you are completely disqualified from all kinds of universities, for government jobs, for most industries and trade schools, etc. You must disown yourself from your family and burn bridges with your class in order to participate in the new world order of proletarian forces.

This would also encourage Proletariat Population Growth because if you have enough kids to prevent yourself from really getting savings, buying property, paying off debt, etc working towards bourgeoisie status, all of your children will be raised as honest people and future Proletarian soldiers.

So now that the revisionists are losing, how will they fight back the stalinization of the proles? More and more people, at least in Russia are seeing uncle Joe in a better light. Will they try to push the 100 gorillion narrative? Or hope this blows over? Quite frankly, I think this is more of a reaction to the failings of capitalism and the fact that Stalin is a prominent communist figure that people are more willing to see absolve him of revisionist crimes.

What did he do for North Vietnam?

Hes considered a great communist figure and i cant understand why?


Easy, freed North Vietnam from French colonialism and kept the Americans at bay so Vietnam could eventually be reunited. Also figured out how to use peasants for communist struggle before Mao.



Different from Mao, he is what I call a perfect blend of Western and Chinese mind, trained in both classical Chinese thought and French enlightenment. He was the first one who transferred socialism to the mass with an eastern shell (Chinese) but still keeping the integrity of western core. That's why there is no "Hoism" like "Maoism". It's just plain old M-Ls with eastern colour. His successor, Le Duan was even more Soviet-hardcore than any Chinese Marxists I could remember.

100% this. Even talking to conservative women I begin to lose respect for them. Even a liberal will leave you shaking your head.

You're not seeking people out. Ask yourself this. When was the last time you went out and put yourself in a social setting? When was the last time you approached a woman for conversation. If the answers to these questions are long ago then you know why you haven't found love. You are simply not making an effort.

I suggest either coming to terms that you are not as desperate as you make yourself seem since you have managed to not have a gf for this long or maybe you are lazy.

Another tip for you:

Don't treat women like a game they are people and deserve respect. You're not going to utter some phrase or wear some particular piece of clothing and get mad pussy. That's not how life works. You simply need to find someone with like minded interests.

First figure out your own interests. You're on this board so you're probably interested in communism. Now join a communist club. Now talk to the women at this club. I would wager you can probably talk about quite a lot with these women. Don't make this harder than it has to be alright.

lmaoing at you if you believe this lol. those rules only apply to peasants and the not elite portion of the population.

some of the elites (which are the princes, royal families and western workers) are well known to commit adultery, theft, murder, sodomy, drink alcohol, drugs, etc without getting into any problem while there are people who get stoned to death for fucking their fiancee.

there are also certain ethnicities and tribes that are stateless in their own country because they are "lesser" than the others and almost in every elite house there are foreigner economic slaves that get treated like property like all those videos you see online of maids getting beaten.

btw anyone who dares to expose them gets khashoggi'd. there was a case not so far ago where a Saudi dissident got murdered on us soil with full us knowledge without any problem.

Can you leftists explain exactly how a classless society is maintained. Will there not be an intrinsic tendency towards hierarchy of some socioeconomic kind? How do you stop that?

Could this work in a multicultural society? Do you think all races have equal civil and cognitive abilities? Do you have to be an egalitarian to be a leftist in the sense that the races aren't different? How do you keep classes from forming along racial faultlines?

as long as the smartest black guy is smarter than the dumbest white guy, racism is hypocritical and should be abolished

class divides happen because ppl distance themselves from the ppl they are exploiting, by building large nansions far away from ghettos and factories for example

this would not be possible when there is no wealth extraction and the housing situation is controlled by the ppl

but yes, there still could be racism under socialism, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try, cause racism undre capitalism is 100 times worse
