This thread is for the discussion of bans, (bump)locks and generally anything pertaining to the moderation of the board. The last thread is a little crowded with things from last year, so I think it's time for a new, fresher thread.

RULES:

Don't:

-spam

-post cuckshit, "commies BTFO," or any of that kind of shit

-post any porn depicting underage (including drawings)

-deny the existence of climate change

-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)

-use socialist language or parrot state department talking points to defend blatant imperialism

-incite specific acts of terrorism or similar acts (use your head, don't act like a fed)

-post gender and sexuality topics outside of established cyclical threads.

Do:

-be respectful, ask questions, and know your place if you're a reactionary

-feel free to flame, shitpost, and be sectarian if you are a leftist (just keep it somewhat within reason)

/leftypol/ posters are allowed to voice opinions that offend liberals, SJWs, and so on. All sects on the left are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums might ban. However, this was only a minor consideration in the naming of /leftypol/. Since the concept is simply a leftist version of /pol/, the entire name of /pol/ was retained.

you can't exploit machines, no labour - no profit, no profit - no capitalism.

machines can't be exploited because capitalists have to pay the full price of machines, while they can underpay for the labour power of workers. This is possible because worker reproduction precedes capitalism, and capitalism only has to pay for maintaining labour power.

To make this clear if capitalists could grow people in vats, then all profits would disappear, because now capitalists would produce workers like they produce machines, and had to pay full price, for labour. If you attempt to make exploitable machines by having self-replicating machines, you will put an evolutionary selection pressure for an anomaly in the machines, that no longueur hands over surplus to capitalists, but rather uses it to reproduce in higher quantity and or quality than other machine-replicators, with additional evolutionary bonus points for being able to reprogram other machines.

If your UBI were enough to live on, so you don't have to work then it will be rent that competes with passive income from capital, for the surplus produced by what ever people remain working. The lack of a reserve army of labour means that capitalist will loose the ability to underpay the remaining workers. Lets assume that not all tech workers, artisans, high-end services workers … can be wooed by high wages, but would rather spend their time working on their own projects. The capitalists would see their power waning, as well as loose the special labour supply that produces their personal projects and lifestyle and immediately reduce the UBI or raise cost of living until they can maximise exploitation of labour. There is another dimension to this, very few people are willing to fight wars and build weapons, meaning the military and arms production would also be affected, You might see UBI linked with a draft or have your technical expertise requisitioned.

I'm not american, can you elaborate? 'High earners' might mean the upper middle-class (which would require ridiculous increase in tax rates for UBI still) rather than the 1% which is what i was getting at. Taxing that portion of the population is a very daunting task when you consider that their massive influence and power weakens the enforcement of such taxes significantly. Not to mention you're not getting the capitalists to pay even more tax when their profit and growth rates are tanking. Remember that we might not ever get another post-WW2 boom period that enables such a tax, and if we do that probably would mean that WW3 happened and communism failed to assert itself as the global paradigm.

Good question. Here's a few that have been on my mind recently.

Ilych's Gate (also known as I am Twenty or Lenin's Guard) is one of my favourite films of all time. It was censored (or better yet, butchered) on Khruschev's direct orders because he thought it didn't portray the Soviet youth in a positive enough light. Honestly, I'm as tankie as it gets, and I thought it was absolutely fine, so there's that.

The Fall of Berlin is pure socrealist spectacle and I love it in all its corny glory. Valiant heroes of the people crush the Nazi snake (shot on location in ruined Berlin ofc) for the glory of the USSR. Honestly, it's worth it just for the guy playing Stalin (an absolute spitting image of Uncle Joe).

Since you said Eastern Bloc, might as well mention a few DEFA films too:

The Council of the Gods is pretty much a docufilm because it portrays real events with fictional characters. It's about the German chemical giant IG Farben and how they were making boatloads of money during the war in a cartel with Standard Oil. Finding out that US bombers were under orders not to drop bombs on certain factories in Germany was something I only found about while watching this film. Very educational.

Stars is about a Nazi soldier who falls in love with a Jewish camp prisoner. Tragic, but also very matter-of-fact about Nazi atrocities which proved to be an interesting mix.

With the release of new HBO mini-series 'Chernobyl' there have been a lot of threats on it on /tv/. As expected there have been a lot of anti-Soviet and anti socialist propaganda talking about how Soviets forced thousands of people to work for free and that thousands have perished because of Soviet evilness or incompetence. People also put emphasis on Soviet propaganda completely ignoring the tragedy, but rather focusing on what was happening in US.

On the other hand there are also sources that state that 'only' 40 people had died, that evacuation went smoothly and things were professionally fixed; as much as possibly. There are also sources that state that 25,000 Ukrainian, Byelorussian and Russian victims of Chernobyl were threated in Cuba. What's the truth, thought?

This anon raises some good points. Why did Three Mile Island didin't end up in a larger dissaster while Chernobyl was so horrible?

Did control rods really had tips made of graphite which accelerated reactivity?

The graphite "tip" is part of the RBMK design, it's why they didn't have to use heavy water. Chernobyl engineers dropped power for the test, moderating Zenon in the reactor ate up lots of the neutrons, and they stopped getting electricity out of it – like braking too hard in a car. Then they pulled up the control rods to speed up the reaction and get power back. The problem was that RBMK control rods have the absorber on one end and the moderator (accelerator) on the other. When you pull out all of the absorbers & pull in all of the moderators at the same time you heat up the water too fast, boil a lot of it off, and let out extra neutrons that eat through all of the Zenon moderators.

They were evacuated almost immediately. However they couldn't just say "Hey the reactor just blew so you are going to have to leave your homes and possibly irradiated belongings and flee" So instead they had people evacuate and telling them it would be temporary to prevent a panic which would have made the evacuation slower and have more casualties.

I'm curious, I've read that the Germans had about a six week opportunity to wipe out the Red Army, if not they would be bogged down in a war of attrition. I've also read that the Germans were surprised to find that much of the Soviet equipment was superior to their own, specifically in terms of armour, the T-34's and KV-1's making mincemeat of the Panzers. So, how in the name of holy fuck do the technologically inferior Germans manage to inflict such horrendous defeats on the Soviets? And how do the Soviets manage to absorb and recover from them?

>At the end of the fighting in Kursk, the German forces had suffered 200,000 casualties and lost 500 tanks, while Soviet losses amounted to 860,000 casualties and 1,500 tanks.

How is such a disparity in casualties possible? How were the German Panzer divisions able to take out 1500 technologically "superior" tanks?

Even late in the war, in 1945, Soviet "victories" routinely meant twice the number of casualties sustained by the Germans.

TL;DR: German Blitzkreig allowed for a rapid strike that took the Soviets off-guard. In 1941-42 Soviet losses were higher because the Germans were pressing the advantage in most aspects, but after the Red Army finished re-organizing and halted the Germans, from 1943-1945 the Germans began taking generally higher losses. However since the USSR was rolling back the Germans and had no advantage of surprise they had to slog through high losses. This was coupled with the soviets generally adhering to international POW laws while the Germans eradicated most POWs in brutal fashion.

Tank losses were counted differently in the USSR and in Germany, thus causing the loss counts of the Soviets to get inflated.

http://tankarchives.blogspot.com/2017/04/on-german-tank-losses.html

German tank losses were counted much differently than Soviet losses. A German tank is considered lost if it is destroyed, and, more importantly, there is no longer hope of recovering it. That is why losses can show up days, even weeks, after the tanks have actually been destroyed. When looking for German tanks losses, a much more reliable method is to look at dead crew members. You can’t fake those.

On the other hand, the Germans would claim an immobilized Soviet tank in no-man’s land as a kill, even if the Soviets would recover it later. A German tank in the same position would not be counted as a loPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Germans had about a six week opportunity to wipe out the Red Army

Not really. There is literally no way for the Germans to have defeated the Red Army within 6 weeks. The Soviet Defensive lines did their job even with some mistakes and by Moscow had ensured the impossibility of further penetration.

>Germans were surprised to find that much of the Soviet equipment was superior

That's true especially for the T-34

report from May 1942

"Characteristics of the T34.

The T-34 is faster, more maneuverable, has better cross-country mobility than our Pz.Kpfw.lll and IV. Its armor is stronger. The penetrating ability of its 7.62 cm cannon is superior to our 5 cm KwK. and the 7.5 cm KwK40. The favorable form of sloping all of the armor plates aids in causing the shells to skid off. Combating the T-34 with the 5 cm KwK tank gun is possible only at short ranges from the flank or rear, where it is important to achieve a hit as perpendicular to the surface as possible. Hits on the turret ring, even with high-explosive shells or machine gun bullets, usually result in jamming the turret. In addition, armor-piercing shells fired at close range that hit the gun mantle result in penetrations and breaking open the weld seams. The T-34 can be penetrated at ranges up to 1000 metres with the 7.5 cm PaK 40 as well as the 7.5 cm Hohlgranate (hollow-charge shells).''

from October 1941:

For the first time during the campaign in the East, in these battles the absolute superiority of the Russian 26 tons and 52 ton tanks over out Pz.Kpfw.III and IV was felt. The Russian tanks usually formed in a half circle, open fire with their 7.62 cm gun on our Panzers already at a range of 1000 meters and deliver enormous penetration energy with high accuracy. Our 5 cm Kw.K. tank guns can only achieve penetrations under very special favourable conditions at very close range under 50 meters. Our Panzers are already knocked out at a range of several hundred meters. Many times our Panzers Were split Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>how in the name of holy fuck do the technologically inferior Germans manage to inflict such horrendous defeats on the Soviets?

There were only a few hundred KVs and T-34s actually in service, the Red Army was going through a re-armament. The same applies for the other military branches. The Navy's newest ships at Sevastopol (for example) were destroyed in dry-dock to prevent German capture.

The Soviet line of defense was multi-tiered. When one was penetrated, its forces fell back and strengthened the one behind it, until the Germans could no longer use their Blitzkrieg method to penetrate enough anymore and were halted into a prolonged fight.

>Even late in the war, in 1945, Soviet "victories" routinely meant twice the number of casualties sustained by the Germans.

The thread you linked debunks this

>total casualties in Berlin

>german casualties at 800,000

>Soviet casualties at 362,367

That is with captured

If you removed captured than yeah, soviets suffered more because they weren't getting captured at all, just killed.

why ? do you really think reasoned Marxist feminism can fix misandrist mainstream feminism ?

Go have a look how online discourse develops, after a while the class aspect gets dropped, and it devolves into reactionary screeching. It's quite obvious that this is the wrong frame of reference if class contradictions are on the back foot.

We have to invent a new discourse where misogyny and misandry alike are negated, we should in the spirit of equality equate misogyny and misandry, and attribute it the same low rank in cultural hierarchies.

>On a side note, I think its possible that the reason so many millenials practice this particular form of ‘wokeness’ is because we came of age during the days of George W.

If you ever dared to criticize the wars, or George W Bush (especially in his first term) some asshole would get up in your face and yell that you were a little prick who hated America, hated freedom, should move to some other country, hated the troops and was ungrateful for the troops who were ‘over there’ dying for our FREEDUM. Fox news was unironically seen as “fair and balanced” You literally couldn’t bring up any criticism of Bush/Iraq without people booing and some citizen of the greatest country getting up from his seat and shouting you down, lest he miss an opportunity to ‘call out the bad person’.

Okay I don't know if it occurs to you folks but there is a whole lot of definition-fucking going on here and it needs to be cleared up:

>We need to reject feminism because feminism is liberal and anti-Marxist, and it gives the left a bad image

<But that's the bad kind of feminism! We still want to have gender equality, so we need to make it clear that we support that kind of feminism!

>Well of course we want gender equality, but that's not what feminism means anymore!

It just goes back and forth between altering definitions of feminism.

Now, it's clear that we all want gender equality (at least, I hope), and it's also clear that we all want SJWs to fuck off (at least, I hope), so if we can agree on both of those things then I don't see what the problem is.

Michael Hudson: Trump’s Trade Threats Are Really Cold War 2.0

America’s wish list: other countries’ neoliberal subservience

At stake is whether China will agree to do what Russia did in the 1990s: put a Yeltsin-like puppet of neoliberal planners in place to shift control of its economy from its government to the U.S. financial sector and its planners. So the fight really is over what kind of planning China and the rest of the world should have: by governments to raise prosperity, or by the financial sector to extract revenue and impose austerity.

U.S. diplomacy aims to make other countries dependent on its agricultural exports, its oil (or oil in countries that U.S. majors and allies control), information and military technology. This trade dependency will enable U.S. strategists to impose sanctions that would deprive economies of basic food, energy, communications and replacement parts if they resist U.S. demands.

The objective is to gain financial control of global resources and make trade “partners” pay interest, licensing fees and high prices for products in which the United States enjoys monopoly pricing “rights” for intellectual property. A trade war thus aims to make other countries dependent on U.S.-controlled food, oil, banking and finance, or high-technology goods whose disruption will cause austerity and suffering until the trade “partner” surrenders.

China’s Willingness to Give Trump a “Win”

Threats are cheap, but Mr. Trump can’t really follow through without turning farmers, Wall Street and the stock market, Walmart and much of the IT sector against him at election time if his tariffs on China increase the cost of living and doing business. His diplomatic threat is really that the US will cut its owPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Trump’s Trade Threats Are Really Cold War 2.0

No they aren’t. Not wanting a trade deficit is something totally reasonable. Why are so many self-proclaed “leftisits” defending free trade is beyond me. That shit is cansor that causes deindustrialization and poverty.

>America’s Wish for a Neoliberal Chinese Yeltsin (and Another Russian Yeltsin for That Matter)

No, America just wants to not have to buy everything from China, and they want to not have their industry be shipped overseas and have some autarky.

Get in here.

https://marxistpedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

There's no good hard left wiki. Instead of fixing this problem, we've been sitting on our ass. This site has been a viable candidate for a while now, but because the admin has previously written on it using a slightly spooked "anti-Stalinist" perspective, it has been rejected. That's stupid. We can turn it into whatever we need it to be.

Anyone even remotely knowledgeable should start writing articles. The internet needs a website like this. Write on whatever topic related to Marxism and leftism. Worker cooperatives, cybernetic economic planning, dialectical materialism, maybe even internet drama could have a place on there… Whatever works for you. At the moment I mostly want to get a place like this off the ground.

Some rough guidelines for contributing can be found on https://marxistpedia.org/wiki/Marxistpedia:Guidelines.

A couple articles like that and a little bit of reddit promotion and the site will be flooded with anarcho-liberals doing cultural critique of videogame titties. Is that what you want?

I honestly don't care. The way the capitalist culture industry sexualizes women isn't off-topic to the wiki. If you don't care about that stuff you just don't visit those pages.

This wiki being flooded with legitimate activity can only be a good thing.

Do you disagree? What kind of problems do you see it causing?

I'm aware of that solution and I don't have a problem with an article about videogame titties by itself.

>What kind of problems do you see it causing?

That sort of article becoming common will change the politicial composition of the people writing and editing articles. They will either directly interfere with the more serious stuff or making it harder to understand by referring to it in a nonsensical fashion. Or first make a whack reference to the serious stuff in their culture-critique stuff, then coming to half-realize that the reference doesn't fit and then editing the article they referred to for making it sort-of fit instead of editing their own stuff.

Meanwhile the larger user-base will be better able to correct those mistakes.

I agree with you to the extent that we need good Marxist moderation to make this stuff work. We can't allow the culture critique people to get in charge of the site at any point.

Anti-trans, TERF, incel, anti-abortion, homophobia, misandry, essentialism, are all reactionary ideologies or views espoused by reactionaries. As such, it will only be only slightly more tolerated in this thread than in the general board. Keep in mind that board rules still apply.

>Do all those men that best their girlfriends and or wives deserve to be alone? How come they aren't?

I could not find any statistics about that so plz provide

Also yes

>If it's because women misjudged them, could women and yourself be misjudging me and incels as well?

No most incels(not virgins in general) are assholes

>Since yo're so determined to make this about me, let's say that I am. Does this make all my experiences and arguments fiat? Why isn't the alternative true? That men who do successfully sleep with women and form relationships were never low status men, and are only claiming to be after the fact?

It was a rhetorical questions i don’t care about you that much

Also yes and yes

>I've never hit a woman, yet men that do don't have trouble finding partners. Are men that sound like assholes being rejected by women but men that actually beat women swimming in sex meritorious in your book Wouldn't this type of incentive system get more women beat?

Dude you have yet to provide any statistic that most women date or want abusers

>But earlier you said women are with dark triad men because they can't detect those bad personality traits.

I don’t think i said something like that ,i guess most psychopaths are good at hiding their evil side ,but still they are don’t have that many loving relationships

>Also exceptions prove the rule

Same goes with Henry's anecdote

And i am not rich or well endowed

>Over 40 percent of children are born to single mothers

The only thing that it came close to this is that nearly 40% of kids are born out of wedlock

Not married=/= single

There are only 13 million single parents in the us (of both sexes) so i don’t see the 40% of single moms

>women claim to be feminist and be against gender roles

>same women want a "real man"

The reason for this anon is that gender roles are based on reality and biology. Women can be indoctrinated as much as you like but when it comes down to it they still want what is a biological reality. The left can't brainwash them out of it.

>To further test the wealth-and-power idea, the researchers plan to look for other genetic markers that would indicate that something cultural, not physical, kept those early male farmers from reproducing. Team members could also collaborate with anthropologists and archaeologists, to see if they have any clues.

>Nature is a harsh taskmaster, but so, it seems, is human culture. Although the popular notion is that farming and settlement cushioned people against "survival of the fittest," this study shows that's not true. Something cultural happened 8,000 years ago that's marked us even today.

Will that happen again when capitalism is abolished?
