What is wrong with capitalism? If I have goods or services to offer, shouldn't I be able to sell them?

You're claiming that you own the sticks and mud by trying to sell it though. You didn't do shit in producing the conditions that allowed sticks and mud to exist.

Given the recent influx of users I realize I need rules rather than arbitrarily banning people.

1. Follow site rules.

2. This is a SFW board so use spoilers for anything lewd.

3. /pol/yps should keeps questions and debates to the designated thread. Also they need to be on good behavior and make actual arguments rather than shitposts. Otherwise you will get a ban. Regular users aren't beholden to this rules, but it would be nice if y'all quality post too.

I will keep bans between 1 and 30 days. I will also try to provide a reason for the ban from now on.

Why are there so many reactionary weeaboos? It's funny considering most anime doesn't have such a message. We also get immediately labeled as reactionaries; I feel it also happens in the gaming community.

Its great that you get to have that opinion, but a lot of people don't. Politics isn't just some online spat, it effects real people. If you say you hate politics you are also saying you don't care about other people, which is fine if you're a 12 year old who reads quick summaries of Nietzsche works on the internet, but not a point of view that is ever going to bring positive change.

Antifa is of a decent size in Japan. Anyone there who can help expand it?

I'm well aware that there is a lot of Punk and Metal in Japan, these scenes have a lot of legit Anarchists. Music or any of the other arts are the best method.

Games like Persona 5 have Anarchist themes too, etc. Japan is becoming more Anti-Fascist due to the times of accelerationism it seems like. They will have their own accelerationism.

Gensokyo is a capture of Japan when they're still able to combine their traditional culture (and myths) with High Western adoption! Meiji and Taisho eras. Just look at the design of the girls - how many percent have Victorian dresses? 40%?

At any rate, Touhou Project is implictly right wing. A "Neo-Traditionalism of Japan", if you will.

Does it eliminate the problems of capital accumulation and the necessity for the many to live only by the permission of the few? Then no, it really doesn't.

They never were determined "by the work you do," poor liberal brainlet. It's determined by who has to work and who has people work for them, the propertied class, and the property-less class that can only live by working for those with it.

I was arguing with a dumbass in another thread but I think the post deserves its own thread. Attached are two pdfs I found with pertinent information. JETRO covers the arrangement of the anime industry (though I think it's outdated), and the other gives us our information on the various revenues and profits of the industry as a whole.

In reality the situation for anime/manga is good–on paper. They've been experiencing rising profits for the past few years, but that doesn't mean the industry is healthy.

https://sotaku.com/anime-industry-report-2016/

>While we are on the topic of an anime boom, we have to borrow a term from the oil industry and talk about peak anime. Have the production companies hit their limit in terms of production, which decreased slightly from the previous year by about 4,000 minutes? In terms of raw numbers, only one more new anime was produced this year as compared to the previous year, with the rest of the bump coming from a larger hold over of older shows. The reason for the slowed growth is due to a lack of capacity in producing and finding spots to air the shows.

As an analogy, we've seen that despite Hollywood's record breaking profits, we haven't experienced a golden age in terms of cinema, either in output or quality. The manga industry has experienced a similar process of mergers and acquisitions as profits vacillate. In the end the cumulative effects are similar. You have fewer independent studios as they conglomerate into larger companies. This allows for the allocation of greater resources, but to less projects. This in turn leads to the same "top heavy" effect of having to throw more and more capital at projects in order to maintain current profits and hopefully produce greater ones. However, a significant enough disruption or an unexpected flop can mean bankruptcy, especially since

how are you measuring this? What are you comparing to rise in profit to demonstrate that profit is independent of output/quality.

that's just a quote but it's the core of your argument, and without a way to measure quality it's pure Praxeology.


 No.1755

>>1736

> it's the core of your argumen

It's really not.

http://www.the-numbers.com/market/

Movies released from major studios have declined since the 90s.You can see too by the inflation-adjusted box offices that things peaked in 2002 and have been on a slow decline since then. I haven't even looked to see how many films there would be if you didn't count sequels and remakes. They completely dominate the box offices in 2015 and 2016 though.

https://www.mpaa.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/MPAA-Theatrical-Market-Statistics-2016_Final-1.pdf

Despite box office takes staying approximately steady, their value has been on the decline, at least in the Euro/American/African market. Profits from that (if I'm reading this right) are down 4%, while profits from China and Japan exploded 44% between 2012 and 2016. The last year the most significant growth came from Japan and India, surprisingly.

It appears as though the main drivers of this box office growth is inflationary. So, while these studios have been capturing more dollars, those dollars are worth less and less. So, to make up for the loss in profit, they've got to put more money into fewer movies, and those movies, year after year, are the same franchises over and over. Whatever metric you use to define quality, it either hasn't changed in any significant way, or even if you were able to imagine that the quality has improved it doesn't really seem to matter. It's not bringing any more people in–admissions have only managed to stay the same or diminish in the '12-'16 period. If the "quality" has improved, then its to practically no effect, in which case its a cost to cut, and as profitability decreases costs are going to have to be cut. The numbers suggest that film novelty has declined significantly since the 60s: Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I was kidding mate, i actually respect leftists as opponents because, well, i need them. They're the best critics of my ideology there are, and I use that criticism to understand what it is I need to adjust and fix. There are fundamental philosophical issues that we disagree on, I don't think wage labor is inherently exploitation and anyone who does is overestimating the value of labor, for example. But socialist critique has molded a lot of my theories on welfare measures, regulation, and anti-plutocracy measures, which when put into practice have proven to be very effective at mitigating the practical problems that leftists criticize liberalism for. Socialism was the best thing to happen to liberalism since Benjamin Franklin.
