This little show that merely is about Karl Marx, his friendship with Engels, how he met the love of his life and how his story began…. has made several anime Youtubers come out of the closet as right wingers. TomoNewsUS also has sperged out about the anime calling it a "horrible show" before it even was released. No one freaked out like this when the Japanese Happy Science sect made an anime about how their Buddha-Jesus saves the world from some Demonic Atheist Nazi Empire judging every Atheist as being possessed by Demons and China as a conspirator and warmongerer.

Most critiques of the Karl Marx anime are excellent now whatsoever and it is being praised the animation of the show which is above average despite being a Chinese production. Really makes me think. How could Xi the madman piss off all of the AnCap and Nazi Weebs by simply releasing a show like this?

>Though I'd call neoliberalism just as extreme as communism or naziism.

That’s the thing about neolibs. They play the whole “enlightened centrist” trope but their ideology has very radical anti-human eliminates. Where neoliberals believe that production for exchange value is more important than production for use value, because “the market is efficient.” It’s a very radical anti-human ideology. People like Nick Land and the Neoreactionaries take it to it’s logical conclusion.

Just curious, what do you think about Ilhan Omar? She seems to be most radical mainstream politician in the US right now, and she really rustles some jimmies.

I know the IdPol that she adheres to and the fact she's still a Democrap but she seriously started to grow me after she got dogpiled with bullshit accusations of antisemitism for her criticism of the AIPAC (the whole "it's all about the Benjamins" Tweet really hit the spot) and yesterday she made Elliot Abrams loose his shit as she basically told him to shut up and quoted his record and called his actions in Latin America genocide. Compared to all the lukewarm shit Bernie, AOC and Gabbard are pushing she really feels like a breath of fresh air.

American Disarmament of first strike weapons won’t happen because it isn’t in America’s self interest. This is especially true as American Imperialism falls apart, America will rely more and more on these weapons because It’ll prevent China from doing to them, what they did to the world. And at the end of the day people act in their self interest, and first strike weapons are incredibly useful, to useful to give up because of some moral principle. The only way America would disarm it’s self of first strike weapons is if it was forced to from the outside, and at that point is when they are used.


>It's better than letting things continue as normal, only to meet the real, thermonuclear End of History after an error of judgement.

Because of MAD, America would only use these weapons for real if America first lost it’s position as an Imperial power, second it’s self-determination was threatened, and third was given an ultimatum to give up these weapons.

Amazon opts out of building New York City headquarters

The company's plans for a campus in the borough of Queens were vigorously opposed by local politicians, who objected to tax subsidies and gentrification.

>Amazon announced Thursday that it is backing out of plans to open a new headquarters in New York City, blaming state and local politicians who "had opposed our presence and will not work with us."

>The retail giant announced in November it would build a campus in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens for 25,000 employees, fueled by $3 billion in state and city incentives to Amazon. "After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens," the company statement said. Many activists said the project would worsen congestion in the area and lead to gentrification and higher housing prices.

>The company put the blame for its decision squarely on the shoulders of politicians who had objected to the development and been critical of city and state leaders for offering Amazon huge tax subsidies. "For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term."

>New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a booster of the Amazon deal, expressed anger that "a small group of politicians" put their own "narrow interests above their community." The Amazon decision will prove costly to "the state's economic future and the best interests of the people of this state," the governor said in a statement.

>But City Council Speaker Corey Johnson aimed his ire at Amazon, saying New York rejects "vulture capitalism." "I look forward to working with companies that understand that if you're willing to engage with New Yorkers and work through challenging issues," Johnson said in a statement. "I hope this is the start of a conversation about vulture capitalism and where our tax dollars are best spent."

How so? The point was to get a big handout from the state governments.

Also fun fact Amazon is getting a 100 million tax rebate this year so they're paying -1% taxes.




Getting the states to bid involved having them hand over a lot of data so Amazon could "consider" it for which place is best. It was bending the states over a barrel in general. Bezos said jump they asked how high. They wanted to get the "boost to the economy" because they're retards who bought porky nonsense and would basically do what he wanted. This is a perfect example of how corporate power is eroding federal/sovereign power.



idk, I feel like any information they could have been given they would already know some other way. I think it's as simple as just the money.



There is an entire market for data like this. It's a large part of how companies like Facebook and Twitter make money. They jealously guard data because it needs to be scarce so they can sell it. With the government it's more a matter of legal procedure and shitty systems getting in the way, but that kind of stuff gets sidestepped when papa pig yells "heel."



Idk, it could be the case but I just don't buy it. The states couldn't have given them anything much that wasn't accessible by a FOI request or regular data collection. At least that's my opinion. Sometimes a dollar bill is just a dollar bill.

>I don’t see why it should necessarily represent an infringement of the Social-Democratic principle if a man puts up candidates for some political office for which election is required and if he votes for those candidates, even if he is engaged in an attempt to abolish that office. One might consider that the best way to abolish the Presidency and the Senate in America would be to elect to those posts men who had pledged themselves to bring about their abolition; it would then be logical for one to act accordingly. Others might consider this method to be inexpedient; it’s a debatable point. There could be circumstances in which such a mode of action might also involve a denial of the revolutionary principle; why it should always and invariably be so, I entirely fail to see. For the first objective of the labour movement is the conquest of political power for and by the working class. Once we are agreed on that, differences of opinion between upright men, in full command of their wits, as to the ways and means of struggle are unlikely to give rise to a dispute over principles. In my view the best tactics in any given country are those which lead most quickly and surely to the goal.

Given this passage, here's my question: did this guy fuck as much as legend say he did?

There hasn't been any fundamental change since the 2008 crisis.




Roughly every decade there is an economic crisis – this is one of the key contradictions of capitalism



What's the plausibility of an american revolution, insurgency, or that the "the system is dying we just have to wait and when it does people will automatically become socialists so let's do anything :^)" diagnosis is right?

So, capitalism is failing and Communism is inevitable, but have you seen some of the odd signs of it lately?

The furthest right thought leader is probably Tucker Carlson and he is now calling for higher taxes on the upper class. I have a suspicion as to why. He sees the Koch bros. Support for open borders and sees it as scab labor. The wages are already so low that it's impeding the basic micro-commune that all Capitalism depends on. The family. The normies can't even afford to have kids.

What's more, the Tea Party is all but forgotten. Instead Right-wingers like Scott Adams are pushing… UBI? That's seriously on the table now.

When the Psuedo-prole Bougies at Huffpo got laid off from their make-work "blog for a living" job they were inundated with "Lrn 2 code, lol." EVERYONE is sick of them.

4 more years of Orange-man and we won't even have to storm the glass towers of silicon valley. They'll beat us to it!

Tl;dr dialectics are in motion and the downfall of capitalism is accelerating faster than expected

I don't agree with this, but it's a happy thought




>The furthest right thought leader is probably Tucker Carlson and he is now calling for higher taxes on the upper class.

Fascists always do this in times of crisis. The middle class fascists start appealing to the lower classes when they have exhausted the potential for recruitment from the middle class.

This documentary is pretty good.




Soon trucking will be automated and their will be six million unemployed workers. We better organize them before the fascists do.

Retirement is a pipe dream, healthcare ravages what little savings I've accrued, and the cost of everything rises at a rate disproportionate to what I make.

Believing in a metaphysical truth and ideals are religious, you silly goose.



No, it's scientific. Religious thought is (intentionally) self-contradictory, open to reinterpretation, and anyone looking into a religious text can read into it whatever they want, which is usually affirming their existing beliefs. Science doesn't let you choose what you believe, and doesn't require your consent.



>are there certain values Marxists need to hold up and strive after? I understand that there is a "do as thou wilt" mentality but there are still principles Marxists need to uphold, right?

Of course, Marxism is after all the most egalitarian ideology in the world. Marxists should always strive to live revolutionary lives that aid in humanities historical quest to unify itself and end all exploitation on the planet. You will be surprised reading the incredible stories of self-sacrifice of revolutionaries for nothing more than knowing they are making the world better, from famous examples like Che to lesser known heroes of WW2 like Sava Kovasevic of the Yugoslav Partisans etc. All this without expecting any personal reward in an afterlife



communism is nothing but free time.



Bzzzt, wrong, the answer was that science doesn't ask for, nor provide, metaphysical truth.

>Savages are irrelevant in this situation

As a final post, it's highly relevant. Because it's based on the material conditions that people experience, which are reinforced by standing racial conditions, which are then justified by things like the Autism Level test which uses a relativistic basis of "knowledge" which would not be applicable to people outside of the cultural sphere of people who need to know these sorts of things to function in society, and then these things perpetuate the cycle. Essentially it proves the point of >>2815092 and how the Autism Level test is meant to obfuscate the material basis for these discrepancies and instead relate it to various racial indicators, as a classic example of idpol subverting the material interests of the proletariat. It's classic and simple divide and conquer tactics promoted by /pol/ types to protect capitalism, whether they realize it or no. Also, calling people with a mildly different way of life "savages" kinda gives away the game, /pol/ack.

>A person with a learning disability is more likely to be less intelligent than someone without it.

I chose dyslexia specifically because it has no bearing on one's intellectual capability as proven by numerous scientific studies, reinforced by two fairly universally regarded geniuses having it.

It's not a buzzword when it's accurate. If it looks like a cuck and quacks like a cuck, it's probably a cuck.

>You are actually doing a major disservice to the marginalized peoples of the world by denying they suffer from poorer cognitive development due to their material conditions.

Comrades, today Yanis Varoufakis' Diem launched the first semi-open primary for President of the EU Commission in its history. The process is twofold, first open nominations. then closed election. The open nominations can come from anywhere in the world, and can theoretically nominate anyone. They have asked that people nominate two women, and two men.

As such, it is the cvyaschennaya duty of every poster on this board to submit Slavoj Zizek's name on to it. He was robbed of the Slovenian presidency 30 years ago, now it is time for him to ascend to the European presidency.


^Nominate people there.

Yeah, I know a lot of families went bankrupt and people starved blah blah but I had a great time. I went to occupy protests and slept in tents. I met a bunch of cool (and some extremely batshit insane) socialists some of whom remain my friends to this day. I tried acid for the first time with homeless people and learned about myself. During the recession everyone was so cool and if you stole or didn't have a job or were a weedfiend everyone understood. It was, for a brief moment, culturally acceptable to be poor and idle. There was this class consciousness that unified people of all races and backgrounds, if ever so briefly.

Are there any oldfags like 25+ who remember this time as fondly as I do? Do you have any nostalgiac memories to share about this time?
