/survival/ - Survivalism, Preparedness & Cost-cutting Anonymous Comrade 01/13/2020 (Mon) 20:48:34 No. 5280 [Reply]
ITT post practical survival, self-sustenance and cost-cutting tips, not utterly useless political/macroeconomic/philosophical theory (that you will never be able to implement anyway because you are just plebeian on the internet, not part of the ruling class) and whining that you see on /leftypol/ The target audience can range from scavenging hobos to minimum wagers to landowners with no mortgages.

That was just a fucking parallel you mong. If you are too illiterate to understand, let me use another one. Nature and Earth is like our house. Sometimes we want to demolish a wall in our house to make a larger room, or we want to attach an expansion to it. There is nothing wrong with that - the "original" form of the house isn't sacred. However, if the wall in question is load-bearing, or the expansion would destabilize the foundations, you DON'T do it, lest you be an utter idiot as you are putting your home in danger of collapse. Same shit applies to nature. Cars should be a secondary option, for people who need it. 1 car per person if they need it. Most people own and drive cars because of necessity. If, after public transport is established properly, they still need or want a car, then they can have it. claims that everyone who touched "black snow" got thyroid cancer in 6 years, which isn't true, because the "black snow" was the result of the fires in reactor 4, there is no fire nowadays but you still get radiation poisoning from the radiative decay. You also can't treat radiation poisoning if you reach that stage (thyroid cancer) because once it's in there you are fucked, developing thyroid cancer depends on the dose and genetics, If you don't absorb radioactive iodine, you don't need to treat yourself with iodine tablets either start with Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_radiation_syndrome Permaculture in the Senegal desert (pic related) https://youtu.be/MYMIbLoxW8U

There is an architect by the name of Vincent Callebaut. Has designs to turn places such as the city of Paris into an ecologically friendly location. He has plans for bio-air conditioning, anti-smog towers, and vertical farming. http://vincent.callebaut.org/object/150105_parissmartcity2050/parissmartcity2050/projects If you guys wanna see something wild, check this shit out. There are spiders known as Anelosimus Exumius that exist in giant communal webs, with hardly any social heirarchy, save for separation by sex.

>>19887 Sources >Since 1960, low-oxygen areas in the open ocean have expanded by 4.5 million square kilometers, an area the size of the European Union. Some regions have lost 40% of their oxygen, and the volume of water containing zero oxygen has more than quadrupled. The ocean is losing about a billion metric tons of oxygen every year. At present rates, the decline in life-giving ocean oxygen will triple by 2100. Add that to the rapidly growing number of coastal dead zones, and we have a life support emergency. <Overall, the ocean’s oxygen content has fallen just 2%, but the decline has occurred almost entirely in parts of the ocean where marine life is usually most abundant, so its impact is far greater than that percentage suggests.
David Attenborough just put out a new documentary that was really well done, and was actually pretty realistic about the coming climate crisis. Didn't pull any punches like most hopium filled publications do, and as far as I know I don't know why a >90 year old man would want to spend what are the last years of his life bullshitting people about something he's done for half of his life or more. Talked about the desertification of oceans, of land, of sopsoil being exhausted by our farming practices, overpopulation, temperature rises and what that means for humans and the wider ecosystem at large. These are things we have to consider as communists. Personally, it has always been my belief since I became aware of just how big an issue this was right around the time I left college that human society as we know it globally will be knocked down a civilization or two even. It was a pretty tough thing to realize, as I was also awash with enthusiasm for the material I had read from Marx, Lenin, Engals and coming to learn more about the USSR, China and such. Anyway, what I'm ultimately saying is that when I post on here ultimately its from a dark place because I feel like while capitalism will die any hope for what we know as socialism very well goes with it. Ultimately though for the purposes of this post the documentary was well done and while it had some liberal solutions at the end, I know a socialist world order (that won't exist in our lifetimes in the developed form we need to beat this issue) could have been able to beat this issue. Producing for use value would be a huge first. Capitalism won't, and I know liberals can't even face that prospect. I think the conclusions cannot be ignored just because of hope and belief socialism will triumph somehow, and at least acknowledging a possible end to everything we know has to be considered. NOTE: While the documentary is available through a certain paid service, I don't see why certain free platforms wouldn't have it. I hear there are things called trackers that carry it in high quality and other formats, and a certain bay. If you haven't seen it, do it for the knowledge, for a love of animals or a combination of both.

do you watch sports?
35 posts and 4 images omitted.
American Football isn't really my kind of thing. Football (soccer) was good, and basketball is fun to watch sometimes, but really I just prefer to play it instead. Badminton and Tennis are fun but a lot of the players can be cunts for some obscure reason. I unironically think that after the USSR fell sports quality around the world has fallen; Russian soccer teams are a fucking disgrace, Russin basketball teams are nonexistant. etc. etc. A unique sport I enjoy is figure skating. You can talk shit about them all you like, but at the end of the day 90% of people won't be able to even begin to replicate those moves without dedicated practice.

If I knew how to pirate RIZIN events and get English language commentary over them I probably would, I like MMA but UFC and Bellator are just so fucking shit I can't be bothered to keep up with them
I watch American football.
>>10628 The best alternative is to watch all the individual fights of an event on youtube but you won't get English commentary.

What should I do with my money? Anonymous Comrade 04/22/2020 (Wed) 02:18:29 No. 8703 [Reply]
I have like 100€ at the end of each month. I have no clue, what I should do with it. I have no expensive hobbies (well, I like to play games on my PC, but buying PC-components seems like a waste of money to me). The existence of the internet has basically killed most reasons, to spend money. What would you do?

Anyone else seen this? It's a TV series about a left-wing labour MP in the 1970s basically becoming disillusioned with Labour's potential for socialist transformation. I think it's pretty good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6-JyGTq9Nw https://newsocialist.org.uk/bill-brand-and/

How did this absolute madman Boots Riley actually pull this off? Anonymous Comrade 06/25/2020 (Thu) 18:49:03 No. 10848 [Reply]
Boots Riley is a literal MLM ranting on Twitter defending Venezeula and shit like that. Sorry to Bother You had scenes that pointed at imperialism. How did he slip through the cracks, considering the anti-communist character of the American film industry?

If you pay attention and watch this movie critically, you will notice that it is actually very liberal. The producers of Zero Dark Thirty did not screw up by funding Sorry to Bother You, in fact they were very cunning by making a movie that subverts socialism.
>>10888 >it is actually very liberal how?
>How did he slip through the cracks It's an independent production, i.e. not a 'Hollywood movie'.

Thoughts on the works of Cormac McCarthy? Anonymous Comrade 06/23/2020 (Tue) 21:45:00 No. 10772 [Reply]
Extremely talented American writer, more well known to book lovers than the American public tho Dude writes incredibly dark and graphic stories that reach the very heart of human savagery, suffering, evil, and occasionally; their perserverence In looking at the true ugliness and brutality of reality, Cormac takes the strands of darkness to write incredibly beautiful and poetic novels McCarthy's work is like finding a black rose floating atop a river of lava in the heart of hell itself His works include: The Road The Outer Dark Blood Meridian No Country for Old Men All the Pretty Horses Child of God And many more I do not quite know the names of
I read the road, ncfom, and blood meridian. Meridian is the only one I vividly remember however. Really liked the ending to that one. One of my favorite pieces of media.
