Comrade 07/17/2020 (Fri) 21:58:17 No. 2494 [Reply]
So now I really started to want to really understand math and learn more concepts that I didn't learn because I never really liked it very much but now I am more interested in it. What are some resources or basic principles that I can use to understand math better?
this thing + is used to put stuff together that thing is used to take stuff away from something else
There's nothing to understand, maths is arbitrary.
you can use khan academy. I believe they give out free lectures and practice problems. if you haven’t learned calculus start with that and go onto calculus 2 after. then learn multivariable calculus and linear algebra, and then differential equations. once you do that you’re at a level where you can start learning undergraduate stuff, for which most people recommend looking at the springer “undergraduate texts in mathematics” book series. I can’t say anything about it though since I’m not at that level, but you can probably find the books themselves for free on libgen.is

>>2494 take a a Mathematics proofs class (also called Set theory), you don't need to be actually that good at arithmetic to understand higher math, all you need to be able to do is manipulate equations and add fractions, its mostly applied philosophy I am a mathematician who got C's all through calculus
what kind of math are you interested in? Abstract stuff? Topology? Applied stuff? Geometry? I recently got some students into math through working through "The Nature of Code" book/tutorials in the programming language Processing. It was a cool sort of hands on way to interact with different equations that help us define/understand natural phenomena. Creating particle simulators and cool art and all that shit. The "nature of code" is more on the physics end of things but there is a lot of cool visual stuff you can do with geometry and vectors in Processing.

I've been working on formatting Black Bolshevik into EPUB and webpages to make it more accessible, as it's a very long book. At the moment chapters 1-3 are finished. Please contribute if you have the time. https://github.com/scaredporky/scaredporkylib
For typos and misprints, I am using this PDF as a basis of comparison http://gen.lib.rus.ec/book/index.php?md5=AAF60EC535C8BCBE403DCF8E83CB5406
thanks for sharing Anon. what exactly do you need to "finish"? it looks like all the chapters are there on the page
>>2688 I need to finish formatting the other chapters properly and correcting their spelling mistakes. These have just been converted from the scanned PDF as-is, so the automatic transcriptions are still a problem. I'll keep working in this as I have time, but I appreciate any extra help as it's taking some time.
how do I compile EPUBS
>>2696 I've been working on the epub that generated after converting the PDF so I'm not sure how you would compile it from scratch. Here's what I have so far compiled to epub (again, only the first three chapters are finished).

I don't want to leave the house, do any work or anything at all. I would rather lay in bed all day and do heroin. In a socialist society, what happens when I simply refuse to work at all? Do I get housed and fed, or do I starve?
8 posts omitted.
>>2518 Feel free to have an argument hedonist.
you go to rehab
my take is that in socialism, if you don't work you get like your basic subsistence met, like you don't starve, but that's it, you don't get to enjoy the good things in life without doing some work
"He who does not work, does not eat" - Lenin
Really it depends on the level of productive forces/abundance in the society. Compare "From each according to his ability, to each according to his contribution" with "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." I think, for example, in a socialist (lower-phase communism) Germany, you would be provided with a house and food, but probably not much more than that. In a sufficiently abundant higher-phase communism, I'm sure you could be afforded some luxury goods, depending on the level of abundance. People who don't wish to work (where what counts as work is much broader than modern-day capitalism) would be rare. The reason why "forced labour" existed in the USSR was simply because the society was poor and needed to develop quickly, etc.

Cuba and Venezuela before the revolution. Comrade 04/11/2020 (Sat) 02:08:21 No. 754 [Reply]
What do people exactly mean when they claim Cuba and Venezuela were richer before their socialist governments? was it close to an oligarchy?
4 posts omitted.
>Dirty commies took away grandpa’s slaves, they should all be exterminated, blacks belong to whites and Cuba belongs to America Basically this
For what it's worth Venezuela in 1996 had an inflation rate of only 100% as opposed to back in 2018 when it reached up to 130,060%. https://youtu.be/R3CR6MzcGD8
>>763 Cuba was actually a center for sex tourism, much like Thailand or the Phillipines today.
>>2632 What exactly caused this inflation are they printing that much money ore is this some US chenanigans
Some little videos about it. At least Venezuela, it's common knowladge that Cuba under Batista was a playground for mafias and rich gringos. Videos about Venezuela https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvh_mCQbExk Part One https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJZ9QJx_Xqw Part Two

What makes someone a nazbol or "reactionary leftist"?

>>2177 >workerist >genocide back
>>2182 Not an argument.
>>2177 They don't. They think Soviet system is "Jewish" and they were the first to accuse Soviets of killing 100 billion. They just like the aesthetics and symbols of Nazbolism.
P
a reactionary is one who seeks to defend the system. their reaction is one of picking up arms in the name of capitalism. "left reactionaries," are those who have a veneer of do gooder, but where the rubber meets the road, you see their ideology is just a defense of capitalism. (except with black/gay CEOs for example) so when some 23 year old freshly minted critical theory person comes on the scene and obfuscates class consciousness by directing rage towards selected outgroups, they are in practice, a reactionary leftist. in their mind, they are "on the right side of history," but when you go to the root of their beliefs, they still want to preserve hierarchy, and still enable some rich fucks to control millions of people's lives, because their analysis ends at the thin veneer of "see i said the good thing on social media."

Obscure Soviet Vehicles (and Regular Ones too, why not) Comrade 07/06/2020 (Mon) 00:01:03 No. 2198 [Reply]
Just saw this video on the Soviet Antarctic ice cruisers called Kharkovchanka, and thought it was pretty good. And I remember seeing here and there in all manner of different threads stuff like Soviet nuclear icebreakers and massive scaled naval hovercraft. So I figure weird and supercool Soviet vehicles like those would be a great topic for an /edu/ thread, as well as any normal Soviet vehicles of course because they're cool too. https://youtu.be/f6R-h06IsJw
this is also an interesting project that could have make a lot of things easier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VOzKuEhrMY I don't understand why people keep telling there's no innovation under socialism, the way I see it, there's only innovation that's actually needed. The only "innovation" capitalism came up with is technology that dumbs down the populations into obedient consumers.
