>>1329535 Wait, is ever a classless and stateless society, where the means of production is owned by everyobdy while the private property was abolished, existed in the world?
>>1330493 >he doesn't know about the social organization of the vast majority of human existence prior to the advent of civilization Sad! I'm being mostly sarcastic, as the "primitive communism" argument doesn't really stick to most people. However, neither did appeals for republicanism a few hundred years ago during the age of absolute monarchies. The burden is on them to prove that our present liberal democratic way of life is the "end of history" - which they obviously can't, as the current mode of politico-economic organization is rife with unresolved contradictions that it doesn't look apt to handle (ex. immigration, climate change, not to mention the endless wars and profiteering exacerbating modern issues - the pandemic being chiefly among them in this moment), and begs an alternative, social solution.
You acknowledge that they are in fact right.
>>1330510 Maybe history ends with these contradictions simply just going on forever.

Turning the tables IONCE heard Tony Benn giving a speech at Conway Hall in which he revealed the “most dangerous word in the English language.” Only three letters long, but it had the power to elevate one perspective, and dismiss, reject, and encourage vilification of all others on the subject being discussed. The word was “THE.” Nowhere, in recent years, has Benn’s claim been so powerfully illustrated than in the controversies surrounding definitions of anti-semitism. A poorly worded “working definition” of anti-semitism, plus examples of what 21st-century anti-semitism might look like, were first developed for the European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) in 2005, by the American Jewish Committee’s researcher, Kenneth Stern. According to Tony Lerman, former director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, Stern’s document was signed off by just five people, one of whom was Mike Whine, long associated with the Board of Deputies and the Community Security Trust. A few years later, as the document was widely criticised, the EUMC dropped it. But in 2016, it had a miraculous resurrection, adopted virtually word for word by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). Some IHRA national delegates, however, described it being “railroaded” through. https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/f/turning-tables The Liberal Contempt for Martin Luther King’s Final Year The anniversary of his assassination always brings a flood of tributes to Martin Luther King Jr., and this Sunday will surely be no exception. But those tributes — including from countless organizations calling themselves progressive — are routinely evasive about the anti-militarist ideals that King passionately expressed during the final year of his life. You could call it evasion by omission. The standard liberal canon waxes fondly nostalgic about King’s “I have a dream” speech in 1963 and his efforts against racial segregation. But in memory lane, the Dr. King who lived his last year is persona non grata. The pattern is positively Orwellian. King explicitly condemned what he called “the madness of militarism.” And by any reasonable standard, that madness can be diagnosed as pervading U.S. foreign policy in 2021. But today, almost all politicians and mainstream media commentators act as though King never said such things, or if he did then those observations have little to do with today. But they have everything to do with the USA now in its twentieth year of continuous warfare. The Pentagon’s constant bombing in the Middle East and elsewhere is the scarcely noticed wallpaper in the U.S. media’s echo chamber. https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/04/02/the-liberal-contempt-for-martin-luther-kings-final-year/ LONG LIVE THE PARIS COMMAND! GOOD CHANCE TO THE HEROES OF THE PARIS COMMON! 150 years ago, on March 18, 1871, the Paris working class, which led the laborers, dared to stormily conquer the sky, paving the way to the ultimate liberation of humanity. The Paris Commune represents the first seizure of power by the international proletariat. Together with the Commune, the working class raised the red flag, never to lower it again, no matter how many failures and failures on the road to ultimate victory. It is a permanent example of the moral defense of the proletariat willing to make the sacrifice necessary to build a new socialist order in its march towards communism. The Commune revealed the necessity of overthrowing the bourgeois state and establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat in the form of a people's democracy, eliminating the old army and building the armed forces of the people. They declared that the church had left the state, that secular education had come into effect, the tithe tax had been abolished, the fines had been canceled, and that all abandoned workshops and factories would be handed over to the workers to organize their production cooperatives. https://www.tkpml.com/en/yasasin-paris-komunu-san-olsun-paris-komunu-kahramanlarina/

>>1331965 Agreed. Whether deflecting blame for recent sudden increases to sexlessness from the economic system as rightards do, or denying the problem exists at all as shitlibs do, the only thing that needs to be "debunked" is the refusal by mainstream ideologies to confront material conditions.

>>1329550 Stirner influenced many anarchists, fascists and others. I think he definitely tends more towards the anarchist side with his rejection of all abstractions that do not suit the individual's interest (including nations, the state, property by right). Fascists who take influence from him need to do some esoteric mental gymnastics to tie everything together imo. This is worth a read though: https://antifascistnews.net/2017/03/29/the-left-overs-how-fascists-court-the-post-left/ and his subsequent response: https://antifascistnews.net/2017/04/05/egomania-a-response-to-my-critics-on-the-post-left/ tl;dr: post-leftism (typically influenced by stirner) isn't inherently fascistic, though fascists sometimes attempt to appropriate aspects of it.

TrueAnon: Episode 147: You Are A Serf With Jodi Dean We talk to the one and only Jodi Dean about the neofeudal future. lareviewofbooks.org/article/neofeud…-of-capitalism/ https://soundcloud.com/trueanonpod/you-are-a-serf-with-jodi-dean Western govt contractor entrapped British scholar in sting operation to cover up Syria corruption scandal ABritish academic who belongs to a prominent anti-war research group has been targeted in a deceptive sting operation run by a regime-change organization funded with UK and US taxpayer money. That contractor now stands accused of defrauding the European Union of millions of dollars. The Working Group on Syria, Propaganda, and Media is a UK-based collective of professors who have published scholarly investigations exposing the disinformation and lies that have been at the heart of the decade-long Western dirty war on Damascus. The working group’s success in debunking this propaganda, and in amplifying whistleblowers from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), has made it a target of pro-war elements in Western governments and intelligence agencies, along with their allies in major corporate media outlets. This March, it was revealed that the Commission for International Justice and Accountability (CIJA), a regime-change organization that has been funded by numerous Western governments and is linked to UK intelligence agencies, had run an elaborate sting operation in a bid to discredit an academic member, and the working group as a whole. A representative of CIJA posed as a Russian under a fake name and deceived a British researcher named Paul McKeigue into feeding it information with the goal of ensnaring him, vilifying his research group, and smearing its participants as tools of the Kremlin. In other words, the anti-war British scholar was entrapped by an organization supported by his own government, and that happens to have been accused of large-scale fraud by the EU’s own fraud regulator. https://thegrayzone.com/2021/03/27/cija-sting-operation-syria-corruption/ The Right Wing of the Democratic Party Is Playing Hardball. The Left Wing Is Not. Earlier this month, progressive lawmakers refused to withhold their votes on must-pass COVID-19 stimulus legislation until the bill included a $15 minimum wage. A few weeks later, conservative Democratic lawmakers are now threatening to withhold their votes on must-pass infrastructure legislation until the bill includes large tax cuts for the wealthy. The contrast in tactics spotlights a decisive asymmetry in congressional politics right now: the right wing of the Democratic Party is willing to play hardball on behalf of the affluent, to the point of threatening to take down one of President Joe Biden’s signature legislative initiatives, an infrastructure and climate plan he will detail on Wednesday. By contrast, the left wing of the party has not yet been willing to play the same kind of hardball on behalf of the working class — and that refusal ultimately helped kill a promised wage hike in the recent pandemic aid bill and could similarly imperil other progressive priorities. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2021/03/democrats-minimum-wage-withhold-votes-biden-legislation
