Mexico general.

I haven't found any compilation of communism in Mexico, and I have a brainlet tier knowledge of Mexican history, but some highlights in no particular order:

>President Lázaro Cárdenas nationalized oil, expropriating large landed estates and distributing land to small holders in collective holdings (ejidos), tried to secularize (and inculcate leftism) in public schools (but peasants where church-cucks and fought back so he had to desist), legalized communist parties, granted asylum to Trotsky (RIP in Picks), among other great leftist strides.

>World renowned artists, Frida Khalo and his husband Diego Rivera were both members of the communist party and up until this year, were the images that appeared in the highest (actively) circulating money note.

>Diego Rivera, along with Siqueiros and other muralists, painted murals of the struggle of the indigenous people and the oppression they suffered. Siqueiros, a hardcore ML, led a failed attempt to assasinate Trotksy.

>Mexico also has a long history of labor unions, although they were eventually coopted by the government and are still in cahoots and deeply corrupt. Of note is the CTM which started out as an honest and very progressive labor union, but eventually became an unofficial branch of the ruling party through which they effected influence.

>Subcomandante Marcos and the EZLN, troubled history with the Mexican government to assert themselves as independent. Very based. The indigenous leaders write some essays which are #woke as fuck.

>EPR (Ejercito Popular Revolucionario), lesser known than EZLN, are an armed revolutionary army which have carried out multiple terrorist attacks, one of which cost the Mexican state 100MM USD per day (unclear how many days) (according to the english wikipedia article). They have also fought against many armed forces and in one attack cost the mexican government 30 troops.

>AMLO (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador), elect president by a huge landslide, accused of being a populist and of wanting to instill Venezuela """communism""" in Mexico. Largely leftist rhetoric. Insists on dismantling the "mafia of power" (aka the corrupt ruling party and the corrupt bourgs who sorround them, like top 5 billionaire Carlos Slim, but never mentions them by name). Wants to cut government spending dramatically. Part of this is cancelling a billion dollar project, already 30% underway and already over budget, for a new airport in Mexico City. This caused an uproar in the middle and upper classes and caused them to hold the most white and instagrammed protest in a long time. AMLO claims he will hold the "fourth revolution" and will transform the country. As usual, probably a socdem, probably will disappoint, probably will eventually betray the working class and suck the boujie dick.

>There have been communist parties, mostly defunct. There are many small anarchist and communist unions (not sure if any is on the ballot), with representation in basically all large cities. Some I have found: Partido Comunista de Mexico, Federación de Jóvenes Comunistas, Union Anarchosindicalista (UAS) with facebook pages for different states and/or cities. The UAS Monterrey Facebook page has some particularly based memes https://www.facebook.com/anarcosindicalistasmty/

Anyways, what are you chairos up to? Have you been to a socialist meeting?

Do you personally know any fascist? Do you personally know any other communist? Have you ever tried to agitate at your workplace? What do you think AMLO has in store for us?

>Maoism

 No.2717735

>>2717692

English wikipedia says they're Maoist, but spanish wikipedia says they're standard MLs.

Here's their political program:

https://web.archive.org/web/20070715154120/http://www.pdpr-epr.org/doctos_basicos/objetivos.htm

Objectives:

>1. La toma del poder político.

< The seizing of political power

2. La instauración de la dictadura del proletariado.

< The establishment of DoP.

3. La construcción del socialismo en las condiciones de México y con sus particularidades.

< The construction of socialism in Mexico's condition and with its particularities

It's divided in two parts, the maximum program (full comunism), and the minimum program (generally reforms under capitalism). I'm not sure what characterizes maoism as opposed to ML. All of the demands are 100% based. Couldn't disagree with any one of them. They even included LGBT rights. If that's not enough, they also make it very clear that the minimum program should go hand in hand with the maximum program.

>El programa mínimo no debe estar separado del programa máximo, por que la lucha por el socialismo se pierde en la lucha limitada de las masas por sus demandas. Un movimiento revolucionario que no contemple la estrecha relación entre el programa mínimo y máximo, carece de una visión estratégica revolucionaria y no podrá crear las bases firmes que permitan el triunfo de la revolución socialista

< The minimum program must not be separated from the maximum program, because the struggle for socialism is lost in the limited struggle of the masses for their demands. A revolutionary movement that does not contemplate the close relationship between the minimum and maximum program, lacks a revolutionary strategic vision and will not be able to create the firm foundations that will allow the triumph of the socialist revolution.

Absolutely based.

yes, Lázaro Cárdenas was absolutely based and part of the PRI party. One must understand that PRI was the ruling party for 70 years, if you wanted to be in politics, you were in PRI. There have been other leftists in the PRI, but big doubt if they were any good. The PRD came from the PRI, which was left wing party, now center left at best. Wikipedia lists them as part of the internal socialists, but their polticial ideology keynesianism and social democracy. There's also PT (Labor Party) which seems properly left in it's origins but now seems to have degraded. The PT have made coalitions with bigger parties such as the religious conservative party PAN. Maybe a strategic move, maybe just politicians being politicians.

I don't know enough about PT, I might dive in a little to see what they're about…


 No.2733299

PRI also tended to play a "good cop, bad cop" routine when they're put up a more left-leaning president one cycle, then move to the right; rinse and repeat. Mexican election terms are also single-term of six years so they'd constantly cycle them out.

I heard his inauguration speech was very based, I didn't watch it myself. I have several reservations. The most obvious one being that socdems usually betray the working class at some point. Before he was inaugurated he had already set up a committee of advisors, comprised of the country's top businessmen, including people who were made rich by government corruption. His top advisors are famously corrupt officials, as >>2741378 said. A notable capitalist advisor is the billionaire(?) Alfonso Romo.

There is an economic storm brewing, a global crisis seems likely before the end of his presidency (6 years) and it will most definitely be blamed on him. I fear for the reputation of the Mexican left.

He has an almost cult of personality, and the working class is very riled up for the so called "4th revolution". His proposals are pretty out there and seem unlikely that he'll successfully pull most of them off.

Leftists should try to take advantage of people's enthusiasm of the 4th revolution to organize the working class. Any working class organization feels unlikely in the conservative northeastern city of Monterrey, where I'm from, and where >>2741320 probably lived.

As for dreaming, I'm optimistic about AMLO compared to other presidents, but pesimistic on his campaign promises. In capitalism, porkies always win in the end, this nigga better be hiding his commie power-level.

I lived in Chihuahua, and while I personally didn't know many leftists or AMLO supporters he did win the vote here by a pretty significant amount. People are really disillusioned with the two main parties. The kind of people who go on 8chan and their friends aren't exactly a fair sample of the overall population.

I agree that we need to take advantage of this sentiment and have been thinking about it lately. I've seen a lot of people push alt-right talking points in Mexican social media, just like what happened in the US, and it's imperative that we stop that from getting bigger. Maybe it's too late for my comrades here in the states but there's still a chance to push people away from kneejerk reactions to SJWs and whatnot. There's a lot of anger and desire for change, but I'm afraid of how that will manifest.

I feel some hope because it seems like a lot of the bilingual people already familiar with that bullshit are quick to counter the typical "two sexes chromosomes feminism is literally hitler" talking points with actual facts and logic. We've already seen this play out on the anglosphere and know exactly how reactionaries will try to manipulate the conversation.

The number one problem is the Venezuela question. It's no secret that shit is fucked over there and any mistake AMLO makes will be compared to what Maduro and Chavez did. Obviously the real causes for the crisis are more nuanced but the popular message is that it's because left wing politics by nature lead to that stuff. How do we deal with all of that baggage?

He is the best president we have had in a long time but that doesn't mean he is perfect, he still has a lot of problems, but in contrast to most commie groups from my cities I do support him, while having in mind that it is necessary to be very critical of him and not just blindly praise him as many seem to do.

If you only hang out with PAN types you will probably only hear he is an stupid idiot but he is not as stupid as he seems, at the very least he was the only in these elections that seemed to identify the root of many of the problems Mexico had and for some of those problemas he was also the only one to propose something different from what we have had in the last 30 years and that might actually help to solve these problems. He also seemed to have the most complete program of all the candidates these elections.

There are many problems with him, but he was undoubtedly the best choice these elections and he does represent a change in what we have had in Mexico since Salinas. It is important though to have in mind that in the end his only a sucdem.

Exactly. I'm from Tabasco and I haven't met any outright communists (unless one of my preparatory teachers was hiding it) but almost everyone here except upper class people and youths who frequent places like /v/ are definitely left-leaning and/or AMLO supporters. And I'm not talking about the idpol """"liberals"""" who, just like the aforementioned "redpilled" shitposters, have been popping up in Mexico in the last two years; I'm talking about teachers, workers, farmers, poor people who are mostly Christfags. Of course that's good, but those are all people who are older than me and I'm honestly concerned about the future of the Mexican left and its reputation because people my age and younger (the next generations of workers) are absorbing all the propaganda and "ideologies" from the US they see on social media faster than ever. There's a glimmer of hope that things don't turn out so wrong since I know a kid who's a couple years younger than me who voted for AMLO, meaning not all young adults who are exposed to American internet culture have been brainwashed, they just don't openly admit it due to fear of rejection.

What do you propose we do? And do you think it's too late to stop SJW influence from tainting the left?

Kind of unrelated but I met IRL with an internet friend in Mexico City, he was a very chill leftist guy (no idea if an actual communist), interesting to talk to, and while he has some faith in AMLO, he doesn't treat him as a messiah. Are all uni students in Mexico City this based?

He has said some contradictory shit but I'd rather think that it means he's just being careful, hiding his real intentions to not be assassinated, not being shady and thinking of screwing us over.

I trust him for the most part, but it's more based on faith. I can only hope he doesn't betray us, but I've only heard from people who knew him personally during his uni years that he's a genuinely honest guy, so that makes me have more faith in him.

We pretty much have to take initiative and counter all that alt right bullshit with our own leftist social media. I have no doubts that there are coordinated efforts from the right wing to push alt-right disinformation onto social media.

Once I'm more educated I'm considering starting a Youtube channel in the style of hbomberguy or Contrapoints that presents leftist talking points in an accessible way. Shitposting and obscure marxist jargon will only get us so far. I seriously wish I had found Contrapoints years ago, because while I inherently understood and believed a lot of leftist ideas I didn't really know how to describe them or which side was actually fighting for them until she described capitalism to me with lizards.

I see Contrapoints as a great model to follow because she doesn't preach to the choir. I always see people from the right commenting on her videos saying that they appreciate her channel for presenting leftist talking points in a genuine way, and she's certainly helped make these people think more critically and at the very least understand that there's more to the left/right debate than "feminazi bad pinochet good".

It's never too late to stop leftychairo/sjw influence from tainting the left. While we can't shut those idiots up we can try to drown them up with higher quality messaging and try to educate people on what we actually want and why.

Mexico needs a revolution as much as the USA does. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but I've heard that some towns are so dangerous that the people formed actual militias there and patrol the streets because they can't trust the cops to do so themselves, either out of fear or because they were paid off by the cartels (the same people waging war on the cartels are being paid by the cartels…).

Get that shit on lockdown. We're counting on you down there.

>Like many other Michoacán communities, Cherán was under the yoke of organized crime, bribed politicians and corrupt police. Kidnappings, extortion, murders, and illegal logging of the local forest–the lifeblood of the community–were part of daily life[2]. The Los Angeles Times[3] provides the background of the 2011 uprising:

>>That was the year that residents, most of them indigenous and poor, waged an insurrection and declared self-rule in hopes of ridding themselves of the ills that plague so much of Mexico: raging violence, corrupt politicians, a toothless justice system and gangs that have expanded from drug smuggling to extortion, kidnapping and illegal logging.

>“To defend ourselves," explained a community leader,"we had to change the whole system — out with the political parties, out with City Hall, out with the police and everything. We had to organize our own way of living to survive”[3]. Thus, on April 15, 2011 a group of women and men using rocks and fireworks attacked a busload of illegal loggers associated with the Mexican drug cartel La Familia Michoacana and armed with machine guns. The vigilantes assumed control over the town, expelled the police force and politicians and blocked roads leading to oak forest on a nearby mountain which had been subject to illegal logging by armed gangs supported by corrupt officials.[4][5] The new autonomous government is composed of councils elected directly by the people. This community administration is leading an effort to plant thousands of new trees. The community has since seen a crime rate of nearly zero. Following lengthy legal battles, the Mexican government is treating autonomous Cherán as a legal self-governing indigenous community:[4]

>>"In Cherán’s unique form of government, the real power lies wholly with the people. There is not a single decision taken without consensus, from who will get a local job in construction, to the allocation of public services and overseeing the spending of the budget. The authority of the community’s assembly is above any other local governmental body."[2]

>According to the Guardian[6], Cherán's version of direct democracy provided "a simple solution to the vote-buying and patronage which plague Mexican democracy." Direct democracy, according to one community activist, not only saved the forest, but brought peace: Cherán in 2017 had the lowest homicide rate in the entire state of Michoacán and perhaps even in the entire country of Mexico.[6]

Alright lads, how do I show my brother the bueaty of reading theory? He's the typical zoomer

He's pretty hyped up with Cruz Azul vs América, I haven't been paying much attention to fútbol are there any /ourguys/ so I can show him? I've already showed him some footage of the Soviet Union marches(cause he's a fucking kid and would find it cool)

It really helps if he's worked before. You could start by explaining how labor is the source of economic value. It's not a hard concept and it's central to Marxism. If he were my brother, I would rather tell him about marxist theory and encourage him to read fiction (whatever really). Sooner or later, he'll say some stupid shit either for or against SJWs. Be ready to apply the full force of anti-ideological, spook busting, anti-capitalist theory. Try not to be too autistic.
