>>1326691 Men back then were just used to being pig-ish in general. I think despite his infidelity and disrespect Karl genuinely liked Jenny, most of the time treated her well and she was very important assisting him in his work.
>>1326683 they prolly think every leftist is obsessed with cancelling people, and therefore marx saying the lasalle word somehow erodes everything hes said
>>1326795 and for all we know, Jenny might have been a cuckquean
I wish they discovered real stuff, that would be interesting.
>>1326683 This, it's the "Guilt by Association" fallacy that social climbing liberals always fall for. If a serial child molester told you the sky was blue, that wouldn't make it untrue.

Prioritizing the health of workers Anonymous 04/02/2021 (Fri) 16:19:37 No. 1331950 [Reply]
The bourgeois know theres 1 thing they need to make sure the working class are always secured with, healthcare. Labourers can only labour for around 15-25 years from age 16 before their productivity begins to significantly decline and those same labourers are encouraged by their health conditions to become scientists managers or instructors in their field. The rich know this and because of the rapidly aging population found within developing/developed countries more and more investments are being paid by the rich towards ensuring the working class are healthy so that they may slave for the titans of industry and investors eternally so that manufactured goods and services are always available to be used by globalists to serve whatever their intentions may be whether that's staging wars in fragile countries, abusing positions of power in small economies to exploit ordinary citizens that may reside their(Jamaica) etc. However as the workers labour do these new benefits benefit the worker being that they may grow older to experience new things and may build the wealth needed for a family with the extra time or will they be at a negative as their bodies may be exploited for someone else's gain like the unnatural rise in transgenderism in america after 2015 leading to massive epidemics of suicide and lynchings over allegations of rape and soliciting porn from minors within the trans community

Philippines: Statement By The Apolinario Gatmaitan Command On The 52nd Anniversary Of The NPA On the occasion of the 52nd measurement of the formation of the New People’s Army (NPA) on March 29, 1969, the NPA regional command on the island of Negros under the Apolinario Gatmaitan Command, paid its respects to all red commanders and red fighting and recognizing the victories achieved in the trade of armed struggle. We give the highest honor and salute to the comrades who sacrificed their lives just to advance and strengthen the armed struggle of the people. The masses will not be forgotten and with them are Ka Troy, Ka Pido, Ka Jonas, Ka Diego, Ka Jeck-jeck, Ka Eron, Ka Bong, Ka Mayte, Ka Jun, and Ka JK. Their names and heroism have been etched in the revolutionary history of the people. We are proud of the victories achieved over the past year in advancing the stage of the people’s war in response to the executioner and fascist attacks on the US-Duterte regime and the continuing worsening conditions of oppression and exploitation. Without the NPA, the people will have nothing and no bright future for the Filipino people, especially the workers and peasants. https://www.redspark.nu/en/peoples-war/philippines/philippines-statement-by-the-apolinario-gatmaitan-command-on-the-52nd-anniversary-of-the-npa/ Twitter and YouTube Manipulation in Trial of Derek Chauvin for the Death of George Floyd? Due to the hour and the terrible general state of search, I can’t prove a negative, but I sure don’t like what I am not seeing regarding the trial of Derek Chavin on Twitter. And I’m not clear on how much of what I am not seeing is due to the US press or our tech overlords. By sheer happenstance, when looking for something to watch while doing one of the few forms of lower body exercise open to me (standing on a whole body vibration plate), I turned on Court TV. Court TV has gavel to gavel coverage. You can also find YouTube videos of the full day of each day of the trial posted by NBC, the Washington Post, and other media outlets. So I am not asserting that some key material is absent from the Internet, but that particularly important bits are not being showcased. What I saw in the mere five minutes that Court TV excepted, at about 3 AM, was a discussion with several policemen of new evidence introduced on Wednesday, police body cam footage. The three cops all agreed, two more strongly than the third, that the approach and arrest of Floyd, as shown on the body cams, was botched. It’s not clear if they had a reasonable basis for arresting him based just on one suspect $20. They treated him as a physical threat when the audio sure didn’t suggest that, and what you could infer from the video was way less than dispositive. All the former policemen agreed Chavin escalated way too quickly. And his and his partner’s priority should have been to search the car for more bills…which never happened. https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2021/04/twitter-and-youtube-manipulation-in-trial-of-derek-chauvin-for-the-death-of-george-floyd.html Tik-Tok Video Promotes Neo-Colonialism and Gentrification in Guatemala With the coming of the age of social networks, an eco-friendly conscience, remnants of the progressive thought of the 1960s, and a conscience influenced by philosophical currents such as postmodernism, etc., we have a breeding ground for youth from affluent social strata who then decide to tour and visit the wonders of nature in “sustainable” environments, often precisely justifying processes of gentrification in entire populations while doing so. This recently happened in social networks with the Tik-Tok videos posted by Michelle Rusk, a young woman who has built her online presence based on videos that function as promotions of such projects. In her videos, with upbeat “tropical” music, Michelle invites us to know her life in a “conscious community in the Guatemalan mountains.” The activities Michelle describes, although they sound like fun, are nothing more than different cultural elements thrown together in a blender to present a caricature of what a “tribal” experience looks like according to the stereotypes capitalism and imperialism have taught us for decades. In Michelle’s videos, just one Brown person appears, a Guatemalan woman offering her a plate of fruits when she mentions “healthy foods.” The rest of the people appearing in her Tik-Tok videos are, like her, white; not a single Brown or indigenous person (like the majority of the population in Latin America), but people who appear to be from the United States or Europe, with blonde or auburn hair, men with thick beards and long hair in man-buns. Some of the women even have dreadlocks, with sweatpants for their yoga sessions and hippie events in bonfires under the moonlight. It’s the archetype of the middle-class hipster. https://www.leftvoice.org/tik-tok-video-promotes-neo-colonialism-and-gentrification-in-guatemala

Can we have a real talk about communism? Communist countries become dictatorships and here is why I think this is Communism rewards low effort and low competence and demonizes and takes away from the highly competent, this is the reason why communism needs walls to keep competent people in. Now the West is falling into this trap as well and what I mean is, the demonizing of the Competent, you can see this happening in schools, the sciences, and so on, classifying everything if there are differences between races and genders as White supremacy and the need for it to be changed and destroyed, this will have destructive consequences I hope you fine people will help me uncover what these are. And I want to ask you why they are doing this what do they hope to accomplish? You people are more in these people's circles than I.

>>1331838 Communism isn't about people being equal, the Pareto principle has nothing to do with talent or merit at all (whether or not someone is within the 20% is literally entirely by chance, This is not by chance that is ridicules the Pareto principle works from the beginning of time and on all field being carpentry, plumbing doesn't matter what it is.
>>1331865 >muh Pareto principle This was already addressed. Are you retarded? LOOK UP BIG-BOY WORDS BEFORE YOU USE THEM. Pareto's original finding was that 1/5 of the people owned 4/5 of the land. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH PRODUCTIVITY. You are literally a bigger suckup to the ruling class than the proto-fascist economist Pareto. Go suck up to landlords somewhere else you classcuck.
>>1328394 >classifying everything if there are differences between races and genders as White supremacy and the need for it to be changed and destroyed cringe. obv there are small differences between races and genders but implying that because of skull size races are inherently less intelligent... dude... also what does this have to do with communism???
>>1328394 Communist countries become dictatorships because the leaders just fought a revolution, are still wary of siege and sabotage, and this military rule is called dictatorship.

Any hint at even social democracy let alone socialism will bring capital flight. All the rich of the world will take all their resources and put it in another country collapsing our economy. Brain drain will occur to due the lack of living standards and resources and everyone will move out of the country to a functioning economy that is not in the process of an economic collapse. How do you mitigate this?

kill them and take their stuff, duh
>>1323871 Absolutely not true when you look at highly developed social democratic Nordic countries with their high tech industries.
>>1325185 It's interesting how common OP's argument is and how it even counts as the common-sense position in some circles and how it flies in the face of countries with very different taxation structures existing for decades, no? It's up there in the pantheon of unshakeable rightwing fundamentals together with the argument that nobody would possibly ever actually use for anything a currency that is more inflationary than some other currency.
>>1323871 Capital is international in its nature and will invest anywhere where there is best profit/risk ratio. It is true that millionares and billionares move from Nordic social democracies to countries with less taxation and warmer climate like Monaco but their capital always comes back to Nordic countries due to high tech export industry etc. investment opportunities. Petit-porkies are tied to their businesses and high income workers cant afford luxury mansions in tax havens. The biggest problem is the corrupt American goverment protecting these small tax haven countries instead of going full trade embargo until they fix their shit.
