I just joined a political organisation for young communists. However i'm not a communist, i'm joining to feel a sense of comradery, see things from a different perspective and to learn more about politics.

How should i dress to fit in?

That depends, what is the name of this org? If it is just some liberal yuppie type college campus bullshit, then expect tumblr. If it is a real communist organization, one with a grasp on theory and history, it is likely to be composed of mostly working-class folk who don't give a shit how you dress.

I'm a member of the latter, and I dress mostly slacker/techwear/working-class anarkiddie

For discussion, education I attend Socialist Alternative. I'm not really a Trot though, I was compelled by some of their successes in direct action against foreclosure, 15now, council woman in Seattle, etc etc. I've also worked with IWW, but a lot of the anarkiddies like to circle jerk about anarchy too much imo. I want results. I like some of what SPUSA has to say and does. Need more people in the left in the US desu, too much liberal tumblr shit
The guy carrying the idpol garbage to the trashbin of history is based Marx. These identity politic issues detract from the root of all issues in society (the base, i.e. economic). By squabbling over "muh racial purity" or "muh gendered pronouns" etc, you are buying into the game of distraction that the ruling elite want you to buy. The rest you should be able to gather from reading the image.

>> No.11348034

chill the fuck out

that pic is reactionary af and shit like that doesn't fly in real leftist circles. racial and national oppression, gender oppression and cissexism, the oppression of queer people, of people with disabilities ect. are in no way less material than class exploitation. They are all grounded in material social relations.

Idpol should rightly be criticized, but the purpose of this criticism should be to show activists engaged in these movements working within liberal ideological frameworks that those frameworks are ultimately inadequate to the successful pursuit of those struggles, not that the struggles themselves are unimportant.

>> No.11348080

If you think that pic is reactionary I think you miss the point a little... otherwise I agree with you. The picture isn't to dismiss these struggles, but to say that making them your sole platform, again, detracts and distracts from the core issue from which all oppression, etc extends. Reactionary shit doesn't fly in leftist circles, of course, and I myself participate in memorial marches for those slain by cops, 15NOW marches, lgtbq protests... but if we really want to see a united left in our lifetimes, then we need to focus on bringing them under a common banner that addresses ALL of these issues.

Again, comrade, I ultimately agree with you

Trans is a mental illness. Science should be attempting to battle gender dysphoria itself, not hunour it with cosplay surgery. (That still leaves incredibly depressed individuals who battle with never being truly accepted as their gender since they often live in the uncanny valley as far as appearances go)

Non-binary is even worse, Gender roles are manipulated by capitalism sure, but its foolish to deny the inherent biological factors influencing masc and fem regardless of idnvididual cultures and their differences. Our modern quasi-state of gender role breakdown is worse off than pre-feminist functioning family unit.

Puerto Rico is actually the perfect example. Let's compare it to Cuba. The US has had control of PR for well over 100 years (since 1898) and it's a basket case. It is bankrupt with over $80 billion in debt, a poverty rate at over over 45%, and real unemployment rate over 20%. Cuba has a lower infant mortality rate and a longer life expectancy that does PR. In fact Cuba, which has been embargoed by the US for over 50 years, has social indicators on par with the world’s most developed nations in categories such as literacy, infant mortality, life expectancy, healthcare quality and coverage, and educational access.

i've got a general idea of the concept but unfamiliar with the details of the works.
regarding the "preclude physical reality" bit, do any of them address the possibility that inequality is inherent? this is less of a gripe with communism and more so that the purported system doesn't seem to consider that equal opportunity might be impossible. human behaviour isn't just a product of environment, an example of which is the 60-80% heritability of intelligence. to correct for this would require some form of elimination of the individual, something such as eugenics or authoritarian policing.
if you posit these things, how could you conceivably avoid corruption of the system. inequality and the subsequent formation of hierarchy seem to be inevitabilities unless corrected for through morally questionable practice.

how would post-scarcity exempt the existence of a social hierarchy? saying post-scarcity would make communism work is tautology and implies that communism would be infallible. that is if the large whole of society wouldn't become unnecessary with the advent of said technology.

Federalist papers are where the founding fathers state why they wrote things in this manner quoting the great minds who came before them.

You don't understand that screaming revolution is something the Father's wanted you to do, they wanted you to arm yourselves and kill your fellow countrymen every 20 years because it was argued that every generation is a step further away from Locke's natural law.

Interesting, from what I've heard their West Coast section is fair sized. Their VP candidate this year is from Milwaukee too. If you're looking for an org in the Midwest, SA has a sizable branches in Chicago, St. Louis, and Madison. They don't support the Democratic Party, a lot of naysayers have never read any of their lit or even attended one meeting and throw around misinfo.

Leftist Organizations used to be highly educated, organized and armed before the US gov't put an end to that heavily starting in the 60s. Most Rightist Organizations were let be because they aren't usually seen as a threat to the dominant power structures. Usually the ruling class only lets the Right take the reigns when on the verge of collapse from Left pressure during revolution, as a last vestige to keep the money and power flowing to the minority

why are communists so fucking retarded

you guys realize that the definition of an ideology means absolutely nothing right? What matters is practice, not theory. Feminism for example, has a fair definition, but in reality is a cancer in society. The same goes with communism. A "stateless, classless society" sounds great and all, but do you REALLY believe that? It's just a cover up for the extremely authoritarian socialists plotting to kill everyone and take all the resources for themselves.

soviet army cap with a cuban flag patch

ratty old hoodie

45 years old with a saggy beer gut from wasting all his food stamps on pabst and bulk pasta

its really sad to see a commie in real life, theyre just complete losers every time. sad, sorry people with nothing else to turn to. have you ever seen a communist in a car made in the last 30 years? have you ever seen a communist that looked at all presentable? have you ever seen a communist that looked like he had more than 200$ in his savings account (and had worked for it)? youd almost feel bad for them if they werent so fucking obnoxious.

Every Commie in this thread keeps claiming that they know so much yet won't even reference the documents they claim to be so well versed in. If you are truly confident in your ideology, you should be able to explain without referencing the words of others. I simply don't agree with communism because I believe in the law of nature. Nature is made of hierarchies, if you aren't willing to accept that, then you need to grow up. Now you can all claim I'm cucked by the elites, but you're just creating a strawman to project your envy upon. To have a classless, homogenous society is to be completely detached from nature and how we function as animals.

i find appeals to nature basically meaningless because there is no such thing as "un-natural behavior". all behavior is natural. humans are inherently natural, and all of their varied actions are natural. there is nothing observable in the entire universe that isn't part of nature.

to say that something is natural is to merely say that it exists.

>> No.11352342 [DELETED] 

The world is inherently dog eat dog, to have the majority of your income go to anyone other than your family is completely unnatural in any other species.

>> No.11352370

The world is inherently dog eat dog. Obviously community is necessary, but contribution is out of the good of your own heart or respect and not something that should be enforced by government. If the ruling class enforces these exorbitant taxes, the people contribute out of fear. Essentially, you end up at square one and become everything you hope to escape. Communism is an open portal to corruption. If government is kept small with less tax revenue flowing through there will obviously less of a reason for corruption.

I don't care about your views on government, my post has nothing to do with your views on government (but is instead concerned with the method you are using to support them), and I don't understand why you're replying to a post about the definition of nature with political ideology.

collectivism is also present in nature, and for the sake of argument i will put aside examples of human collectivism.

ant colonies, bonobo chimpanzees, etc. all have collective societies.

point being it's not good form to cherry-pick what exists in nature. is there ruthless competition in nature? yes. is there fraternal compassion in nature? yes. these phenomena exist simultaneously. sharks attack people and dolphins help drowning swimmers back to shore. neither one of those events alone defines "nature". they're both natural.

to try to define nature by solely either is reductionist and ignorant of the vast and various types of activity that exist within nature.

Capitalism is dependent on freedoms, freedom of information, freedom to buy and sell as you please. These freedoms have to be maintained at least some minimal form of state. For example, individual firms have incentive to monopolise a market, this contrary to capitalist principles of allowing competition to ensure efficiency. To prevent firms from obtaining a monopoly and therefore distorting the market the state must have powers to ensure there are enough participants in a market to ensure competition. The market isn't something that can just exist independently in nature, it needs a regulatory structure to ensure proper functioning.

Libertarianism is the philosophy of maximizing autonomy and freedom of choice, emphasizing political freedom, voluntary association, and the primacy of individual judgment. This is contradictory to the terms by which Capitalist society organizes.

You will eventually concede to five, fundamental facts: (1) capitalists are the minority; laborers are the majority, (2) capitalists own land and use said land to employ laborers, who are landless, (3) capitalists and laborers, thus, interact with one another (hence, private property as a social relationship), (4) the laborer takes part in this interaction and sells their labor in order to survive (thus is coerced by material conditions), (5) the laborer creates wealth for the capitalist.

That's capitalism, in its purest form. Forget historical factors, the transition from feudalism, primitive accumulation, chattel slavery as a precursor, imperialism, colonialism, racism, world-systems theory, neoliberalism, monopoly capitalism, etc - all derivative ills and supplemental analyses that I could elaborate on, but I won't. Let's keep it simple. This is the most fundamental mechanism of capitalism.

After conceding these facts, you may try to justify them with a meritocratic, winner-loser narrative where "everyone has opportunity," and try to portray labor as a choice, or when all else fails, maybe go with TINA.

You can call on Rothbard, Mises, Hayek, Friedman, and the whole lot of them, or whip out credentials and regurgitate the narrow parameters of mainstream economics.

When all is said and done, these facts still remain. And they are not consistent with liberty, freedom and democracy, despite what our school textbooks told us.

These families are being pushed to the bottom whilst they should be first priority. They wait years on council housing waiting lists whilst Somalians and Arabs, mainly Muslims somehow jump the queue.

in the United States it is typical for firms to announce that they are either beginning to go out of their way to find non-White employees, improving upon their previous attempts to find non-White employees, or that they are proud of the success of their previous attempt to find non-White employees. Any time a firm talks about increasing "diversity" in a workplace they are functionally talking about decreasing the proportion of their employees that are white. Examples of this are easy to come by. It took me about 5 minutes to find pages implicating Google, Facebook, Apple, Walmart, McDonald's, and Microsoft in such attempts. In fact, I know of few major corporations that do not have some sort of "diversity" policy in place.

So what youre scared of is "authoritarianism" huh. I think the really important question, which we could use to address this issue, is this: how can there be no authority in society?

In order for this to happen, there would have to be no dominant aspect in any contradiction. Any dialectical materialist will tell you this is impossible. The only way to get rid of authority is to eliminate the basis for it, which requires some form of authority that fundamentally contradicts the authority that is currently dominant, to the point that the secondary authority becomes primary.

This is what the "withering away of the state" refers to; once socialism has been consolidated on a global scale through revolutionary communist authority, the basis for capitalist authority will be eliminated, and when that process is complete there will therefore be no basis for communist authority. The groups of armed revolutionaries that sought to eliminate capitalism will have no reason to exist as armed groups anymore, and in this sense "authoritarianism" will dissolve.

The problem with absolutist "anti-authoritarianism" is that its refusal to utilize revolutionary authority means that reactionary authority can continue to exist.

ceausescu as an individual is obviously a separate issue to SR romania as a whole but the two are linked and i'll try to capture the careful balance in my response

first of all, the roots of romania's nationalist deviation began before ceausescu became leader - during the 1950s, it was with policies w/r/t industrialization and building connections w/ western capitalist countries in doing so, as well as telling the CMEA where they could shove the proposal for an integrated economic zone crossing the ussr, romania and bulgaria as a prelude toward further inter-state planning in the east. ofc the crescendo of this policy was 1968 when romania opposed the soviet intervention in czechoslovakia and grew closer to china (a policy which brought about punitive soviet cutbacks in economic assistance and aid to romania and thus put even more of a gulf between the two)

economically romania's strategy in this period was a peculiar mix of stalin style heavy-industry-first construction combined with a heavy degree of foreign trade, a combination which was very conducive to romania's economic growth and made it a powerhouse in terms of manufacturing in the 1970s. unlike poland and hungary which were borrowing IMF money from quite early on, romania's debt was actually acquired almost entirely from 1979-1981 when the oil crisis finally begin to hit them - romania's good relations with shahist iran meant the earlier oil crisis had largely been weathered, but the iranian revolution put paid to that.

>> No.11355606


really you have to look for the roots of romania's policies to a large degree also in class terms, and the romanian communist party was even more a cobbled together mix of differing elements than many of the other parties in e. europe, including former iron guard in the lower ranks. the rcp was much less strongly a proletarian party than its neighbours and this played an interesting part in formulating its nationalism and centrism when it came to foreign policy.

ceausescu himself went beyond khrushchev and said not only that the dictatorship of the proletariat had been "surpassed", but that it was completely obsolete and thus not needed in any country. combined with romania's foreign policy, an extreme form of "peaceful co-existence" which almost completely sucked any content of class struggle or distinguishing between capitalism and socialism out of the rcp's analysis of the world, this led to a lot of the opportunism abroad that romania showed (i.e. its relations with israel)

but ultimately it was imperialism which forced austerity on romania, and ceausescu himself became a martyr when he died singing the internationale in front of a contra firing squad. for that and for the many achievements socialist romania did make during the time he was leader, he deserves respect imo.

>> No.11355715


Some of this is right. But I've explained for short in my previous post how bad the people of Romania lived. The fact that Ceausescu did SOME good things is undenied, like the Danube-Black Sea channel along with the People's House in Bucharest, and that was basically it. You forgot to mention that Ceausescu would directly and personally dictate how workers should do their job, even if he was wrong. Everything that I mentioned above, the people's house and the channel had a huge cost that people of Romania had to support. I'll say it in English, people in Romania literally did not have enough bread/meat/anything that is consistent to eat, did not have electricity most of the day, did not have hot water for most part of the day. Because Ceasescu had to pay the 10 million debt to the FMI. You forgot to mention that Romania had to pay wagons of meat and bread to Russia. You don't know how it is to be hungry and to look at meat being put in wagons and sent overboard to 'mother' Russia. He was a martyr? He was a helper in a boot shop before communism rose, his wife was literally a neighbourhood bitch, she knew 0 chemistry, not to mention her illiterate speaches at the tv. You forgot to mention how in those heavily industrialized factories, the leader was most of the time a guy with 4 years of school. Ceausescu was shot like a dog, with his handa cuffed. He sang nothing.

Working class is already divided. Go outside.

>> No.11357352

if nobody is buying the bread then a lowering of price or other incentive is introduced until people do buy it and production can be sustained and profit made. if at no price is bread being bought then it stops being produced and there isn't a market for bread.
a problem is artificially high pricing for profit with a necessity like bread where people are forced to pay the price. if that happens another option like crackers are introduced to the market at better prices. but the cracker industry artificially lowers the price of crackers so people will buy more crackers so the bread industry dies out and a dependency on crackers is created. now the cracker industry controls the market and can slowly increase the price of crackers, but if they increase the price too much either the bread industry reemerges or another alternative like cereal is introduced to meet demand.
these checks and balances are made null at the start by a state when they see that bread is being priced too high and things are introduced that fuck it all up. in our democracy politicians need votes and public approval so they look at short term factors that will get them elected and maintain approval throughout their term. meanwhile the market is sorting shit out but then the next politician steps up and rearranges things again. for a free market to function means smaller state power.

arguably having to pay to be alive provides incentive to actually work and drive the progress of society. all of our behaviour can be derived from the same ones which cater to the necessity of survival. the behaviours which we engage in which don't directly benefit our survival are extensions with similarities.

corporations going bankrupt should be allowed to happen, state intervention is not the free market.

laws should exist to guide morality but not be definitive as morality. the same constitutional statutes which allow rebellion against the state should allow consumers to rebel against corporations engaging in extensive and willful violations of morality. this would be defined not by state law but the laws of the consumer.

continue this example, what incentive do those two monkeys have to not just keep the bananas they've picked if they felt the agreement was unjust. in our society those monkeys would be culpable in the regard of the state.

to add on to "not be definitive of morality," there are cases like the one given where it is immoral to not break the law. in that sense laws "should" exist to guide morality.
