this book really reads like a talented undergrad essay--but nothing more.

Jameson writes...
Zizek claims, referring to Lacan...
Wendy Brown argues...
Deleuze says of schizophrenia...

it just strings together basic critiques of neoliberalism/economic materialism and adds a couple of dangling points here and there. its like a "connect the dots" almost exclusively for neophytes and people who, in another era, would probably have purchased "economic critique for dummies" had it existed

there is hardly anything original here at all, much less anything in terms of a practicable "alternative" or real plan of action. just self-torturing whining.

Socialists are resentful over wealth; they literally think having money makes you evil; they value money just as their Christian brothers do - as the "root of all evil."

Nobody actually thinks that way about libertarians. People actually like libertarians, because unlike communists, they don't advocate for violence.

The point was that this idea that communists are just hysterical brainwashed idiots could be very much applied to most, if not all ideological groups, especially american ones.

Again, this is an incredibly stupid point. Libertarians are no where as bad as communists.

Communists complain about the "CIA", yet, defend all the atrocities carried out by the NKVD, KGB etc in Eastern Europe where's libertarians are consistent critics of statist forces like them.

I don't understand this critique at all, except for the last part that it doesn't give a concrete alternative (which to be fair he discusses in post-capitalist desire). Most theories are referencing other theories (or theorists). The idea that your theory has to be 100% original is just stupid. The people you mentioned referenced a lot of other philosophers in their works as well. That's how it works when you try to give some ground to your theory. Otherwise your work would ground on presumptions that you give no source for which would then result in a not-so authentic and academically not very acknowledged ramble.
Fisher's book gives imo pretty good insight as to how this idea of cr manifests itself in pop culture, institutions and our everyday lives. You could read it as an introduction to these other authors too.

Violence against communists is self defense. They want to steal property, lives they don't own. And yes, the state is a threat to liberty - we have enough blood shed from history, especially communist history, to see what such decadent individuals will do once they have such power - they will use it to carry out their sadistic, murderous game of property denial from the hardest working and most deserving of people. The "CIA boogeyman" is just communist non-sense - Communists love bringing up the CIA to hide the fact the CIA was stopping Communist tyranny when they attacked them. Killing Communists is one of the LEAST bad things the CIA ever did. Not sure why communists complain about them being mass murdered when communists are perfectly okay with doing it towards innocent people because they are resentful of the fact they don't have the skills, uniqueness, or creativity to gives their lives value. Communists are brutes, and beasts that need to be put down. You don't deserve any profits because you're a bum, workers don't run society, consumers do, and you don't care about the workers because Communists killed millions of them for no reason, and it was workers who overthrew their terrible regimes.
The Soviet Union was involved in plenty of third world coups
They also interfered with Finland/ Italy's elections after the Cold War. Communists have always been imperialists. It was Poland, the Czechs who saved the world from communism during World War I because they blocked the Bolsheviks from invading Germany.

The issue here is that liberals always want to invoke the "muh real communism hasn't been tried" as a way to insult anything left wing, but when you show the laundry list of war, atrocity, ((foreign intervention)) and interior repression by capitalist states it's perfectly fine to say, well that's just crony capitalism!

You just want an easy way out the complexities of life by just leveling everything you hate against capitalism. Also, your critique of liberals having a fundamentalist view of capitalism is just wrong on so many levels - apparently FDR and LBJ, the activist court justices such as Brandeis ( a man fucking Milton Friedman praised in his book Free to Choose) , were somehow the greatest proponents of unfettered capitalism to you.

You're the violent one, and people have every right to shoot you because you demand property you never will own, and never should have.

Communism is product of Christian morality making paupers resentful towards wealth. Its a reaction towards wealth, and its a trope as old as civilization itself.

You don't care about human rights - you are an opportunist who gaslights, manipulates people for the sake of power. Civilization will always be plagued issues you complain about because humans are irrational creatures who can not be constrained by any ideological consideration.

Modern academia is the most schizophrenic shit with a dozen references and quotes on every page, you find yourself skipping through incoherent reference summary babble trying to find the original thoughts worth reading. The stigma around plagiarism has stamped out originality. When you read an old book they might tell you who they are influenced by or if they don't you can often infer their influences. The draw of the book is never going to be who they're building on but how they synthesize ideas. This necessarily involves some level of plagiarism.

Slavery against blacks, in Great Britain, largely ended because it became unprofitable.

I can keep going with this , but you'd just look even more stupid, but you're already snowballing here.

It doesn't but it incentivizes people to see each other as inherently useful and worth something, outside of race or class or gender or what-have-you, which moves people towards a reasonable love of each other despite those things which make them different.
If it so happens that people stay away from each other, or naturally segregate, I see no problem with this; as long as the government doesn't stop people from mixing when they want to and associating (or not-associating) with whoever they want to.
Any attempt by a private citizen to stop people from mixing, such as through an act of hate crime or harassment of an interracial couple, should be policed like all other crimes instead of ignored or even encouraged like it was in the old south.
Through these influences people will, of their own accord, trade and work and live in a way that's conducive to a sort of social harmony, without the friction that things like affirmative action would cause.

>British liberal economist John Atkinson Hobson. In his seminal study, Imperialism, a Study (first published in 1902), he pointed to the role of such drives as patriotism, philanthropy, and the spirit of adventure in advancing the imperialist cause. As he saw it, however, the critical question was why the energy of these active agents takes the particular form of imperialist expansion. Hobson located the answer in the financial interests of the capitalist class as “the governor of the imperial engine.” Imperialist policy had to be considered irrational if viewed from the vantage point of the nation as a whole: the economic benefits derived were far less than the costs of wars and armaments; and needed social reforms were shunted aside in the excitement of imperial adventure. But it was rational, indeed, in the eyes of the minority of financial interest groups. The reason for this, in Hobson’s view, was the persistent congestion of capital in manufacturing. The pressure of capital needing investment outlets arose in part from a maldistribution of income: low mass consuming power blocks the absorption of goods and capital inside the country. Moreover, the practices of the larger firms, especially those operating in trusts and combines, foster restrictions on output, thus avoiding the risks and waste of overproduction. Because of this, the large firms are faced with limited opportunities to invest in expanding domestic production. The result of both the maldistribution of income and monopolistic behaviour is a need to open up new markets and new investment opportunities in foreign countries.

>> No.17845987

>I don't need to address socialist countries doing imperialism
You do, because you're making the argument if capitalism was gone imperialism would not happen. You're not being coherent, and taking your beliefs to their logical conclusions, and we both know this because you're a communist using a moralistic argument for imperialism to conceal your political intentions. You must be stupid if you think your arguments come off as anything less than opportunistic.
>I suggest you read about the hundreds of examples of states commiting acts of violence on behalf of private interests
I suggest you read the history of states committing acts of violence in general, especially socialist states, because states through out history have been just as vicious as any individual will do things for whatever cause they see fit. Now, this pivot you're doing is interesting - are you now going to argue that violence would not exist if capitalism went away? Are you now going to argue that capitalism causes violence even though we have data to show that world is becoming less violent over time, and that this correlates with the rise in capitalism?

Even if I don't give half a fuck about politics I'm kinda glad I found her here for nostalgia's sake.

It's a nice read. Feels nice to the touch. Other stuff I'm reading mandatorily just needs to be listened to on audiobook format because it's not engaging. This book is quite engaging.

I never knew what you were on about back then but on forced anon you were basically killed off. I just remember you were older than me and actually posted that pic when we all asked for it. Or something like that.
Of course you'd be on /lit/. I never knew what you talked about back then and I still don't. We agreed on some things but you had to explain first.
No idea, ask her

>thinking any anticapitalist media isn't just trompe-l'œil critique – the appearance of critique which doesn't really threaten the system.

'Anticapitalist' today is merely arguing about who manages capitalism, and why it should be more blacks and women. Nothing to challenge the system.

And I'm not a leftist, but every criticism of capitalism and capitalist ideology is met by people and /pol/tards who thinks capitalism will fuck them if they simp for it hard enough. In this way, the e-girl is the ultimate expression of capitalism and its ardent defenders.

But to reiterate: Even self-professed 'leftists' have no alternative. Nobody does. Anybody who thinks anybody with power wants communism, or will let actual communists take power is sorely fucking mistaken. Anybody who thinks socioeconomic class is coming back right now is also very sorely fucking mistaken. Intersectional theory is a pure divide and conquer ideology, it's literal false consciousness to allow Haves to wag their finger at, and claim equal, if not greater, victim status as Have-Nots, and have the Have-Nots at each others throats.

You can agree to the necessity of capitalism without simping for it so hard. It has given many wealth, lifted many out of poverty, but also recognise it also concentrates vast wealth (and hence power) to a select few, has given unaccountable private corporations and financial institutions immense power over our lives .

The only thing communists got wrong is not killing enough piggies. Viva La FARC, Glory to CCP, Vietnam 1, USA 0. USSR defeated fascism and saved the world from its evil.

>Jesus was a socialist
Except he never discussed economic policy in any meaningful way except for rendering to what is Caesar's, but that was only in the context that the political and economic are trivial and temporal affairs when it comes to the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus was apolitical at best and stated multiple times that you shouldn't worry about worldly problems.

>> No.17848610

I agree with you in a way, e-girls are a perfect symbol for capitalism, and people love it. Everyone loves it. The people are cumming. They need capitalism. We're hungry for it.

While this is true, and of course a correct Christian perspective, Jesus was far closer to "anarchist" and "socialist" in his actions and philosophy than anything else. It is unnecessary and ridiculous to discuss the potential political persuasions of Jesus, what matters is what would Jesus do if he was here. And most likely, he would be rubbing shoulders with the communists and anarchists of the world. I could see, I DO see, Jesus at a Food Not Bombs stall far more than at any Republican, liberal, or other right-wing gathering.

>> No.17848868

I agree, he would associate with the downtrodden, but he would never encourage them to rise up against their oppressors nor advocate any revolution, but rather tell them to lead by his example of accepting whatever violence and suffering the ruling class gave them as a means to raise a mirror against them to reveal their wickedness and repent. Now, if communists heard this, they would call Christ a counter-revolutionary and have him crucified all over again.
