This is probably a irrelevant propaganda, but check out this quote from Marx:

>By counting the most meagre form of life (existence) as the standard, indeed, as the general standard – general because it is applicable to the mass of men. [The capitalist] turns the worker into an insensible being lacking all needs, just as [the capitalist] changes his activity into a pure abstraction from all activity. To [the capitalist], therefore, every luxury of the worker seems to be reprehensible, and everything that goes beyond the most abstract need – be it in the realm of passive enjoyment, or a manifestation of activity – seems to him a luxury.


>Political economy, this science of wealth, is therefore simultaneously the science of renunciation, of want, of saving and it actually reaches the point where it spares man the need of either fresh air or physical exercise. This science of marvellous industry is simultaneously the science of asceticism, and its true ideal is the ascetic but extortionate miser and the ascetic but productive slave.


>Its moral ideal is the worker who takes part of his wages to the savings-bank, and it has even found ready-made a servile art which embodies this pet idea: it has been presented, bathed in sentimentality, on the stage. Thus political economy – despite its worldly and voluptuous appearance – is a true moral science, the most moral of all the sciences. Self-renunciation, the renunciation of life and of all human needs, is its principal thesis.



>The less you eat, drink and buy books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorise, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save – the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor rust will devour – your capital. The less you are, the less you express your own life, the more you have, i.e., the greater is your alienated life, the greater is the store of your estranged being.


>Everything which the political economist takes from you in life and in humanity, he replaces for you in money and in wealth; and all the things which you cannot do, your money can do.


>It can eat and, drink, go to the dance hall and the theatre; it can travel, it can appropriate art, lear

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele plans to introduce legislation that will make it the world’s first sovereign nation to adopt bitcoin as legal tender. Bukele broadcast his intentions on a video at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami. Bukele said the country is partnering with digital wallet company, Strike, to build modern financial infrastructure using bitcoin technology.

>MIAMI – El Salvador is looking to introduce legislation that will make it the world’s first sovereign nation to adopt bitcoin as legal tender, alongside the U.S. dollar.


>In a video broadcast to Bitcoin 2021, a multiday conference in Miami being billed as the biggest bitcoin event in history, President Nayib Bukele announced El Salvador’s partnership with digital wallet company, Strike, to build the country’s modern financial infrastructure using bitcoin technology.

>“Next week I will send to congress a bill that will make bitcoin a legal tender,” said Bukele.

>Jack Mallers, founder of the Lightning Network payments platform Strike, said this will go down as the “shot heard ’round the world for bitcoin.”

>“What’s transformative here is that bitcoin is both the greatest reserve asset ever created and a superior monetary network. Holding bitcoin provides a way to protect developing economies from potential shocks of fiat currency inflation,” continued Mallers.
>Speaking from the mainstage, Mallers said the move will help unleash the power and potential of bitcoin for everyday use cases on an open network that benefits individuals, businesses, and public sector services.

>El Salvador is a largely cash economy, where roughly 70% of people do not have bank accounts or credit cards. Remittances, or the money sent home by migrants, account for more than 20% of El Salvador’s gross domestic product. Incumbent services can charge 10% or more in fees for those international transfers, which can sometimes take days to arrive and that sometimes require a physical pick-up.


>Bitcoin isn’t backed by an asset, nor does it have the full faith and backing of any one government. Its value is derived, in part, from the fact that it is digitally scarce; there will only ever be 21 million bitcoin in

Japan is a former imperialist colony turned neoliberal science experiment. And former is a stretch considering their willingness to get on their hands and knees to capitulate to western capital over their own interests. Its the political equivalent of a dead bedroom, it's no surprise that this uninspired right wing government's biggest export is "culture." The only difference between Japan and other imperial projects like South Africa and Israel is that Japan already got colonialism out of its system by the time the west cucked it for good.

So in 'lower phase' socialism private property will be collectivized, and production will be coordinated via central planning. But workers will still be 'paid' in some unit of account (labor tokens, etc.), will still be 'purchasing' goods and services to survive, will still have bosses and managers, the armed state will still be there, and political party elites will still have control over people's lives.

Why would any sane workers support socialism, then? It just sounds like capitalist society today, but more complicated and with different people in charge.

White House Embraces Job Growth but Distances Itself From Expanded Benefits
“It’s going to expire in 90 days,” Mr. Biden said, speaking in Rehoboth Beach, Del. “That makes sense.” At least 25 states have already moved to end the extra $300 beginning this month, a decision that Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said on Friday was completely within their purview. While the administration views the benefit as an “extra helping hand” for workers, some governors disagree and “that’s OK,” she said.

According to the lawsuit, he struck up conversations and attended meetings and lectures, sometimes secretly recording them.

Guy Debord: Society of the Spectacle
1. In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation. 2. The images detached from every aspect of life fuse in a common stream in which the unity of this life can no longer be reestablished. Reality considered partially unfolds, in its own general unity, as a pseudo-world apart, an object of mere contemplation. The specialization of images of the world is completed in the world of the autonomous image, where the liar has lied to himself. The spectacle in general, as the concrete inversion of life, is the autonomous movement of the non-living. 3. The spectacle presents itself simultaneously as all of society, as part of society, and as instrument of unification. As a part of society it is specifically the sector which concentrates all gazing and all consciousness. Due to the very fact that this sector is separate, it is the common ground of the deceived gaze and of false consciousness, and the unification it achieves is nothing but an official language of generalized separation. 4. The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images. 5. The spectacle cannot be understood as an abuse of the world of vision, as a product of the techniques of mass dissemination of images. It is, rather, a Weltanschauung which has become actual, materially translated. It is a world vision which has become objectified.

As many as 19 million Americans have a hoarding disorder.

For decades, hoarding was rarely studied and little understood. When it was discussed at all, it went by the name Collyer’s syndrome, after two brothers who died in 1947 in a Harlem house filled with over a hundred tons of junk — one of starvation, the other crushed by faPost too long.

Peru’s military say Shining Path insurgents killed 16 civilians. Others are not so sure.
Not only did it make this claim before any full investigation into the murders, but the military has also conflated this group with the historic Shining Path, sowing confusion and generating fear among the general public. The head of Peru’s police, in contrast, urged caution in assigning responsibility for the massacre until an investigation could be carried out. Reports on the ground suggest that the massacre wasn’t the work of Quispe Palomino’s group but instead was a reprisal of some kind that was linked to drug trafficking. Why, then, did the military equate the historic Shining Path with the splinter group operating out of VRAEM, and why was it so quick to do so?

Peter Kropotkin: Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution, Introduction
"On the other hand, wherever I saw animal life in abundance, as, for instance, on the lakes where scores of species and millions of individuals came together to rear their progeny; in the colonies of rodents; in the migrations of birds which took place at that time on a truly American scale along the Usuri; and especially in a migration of fallow-deer which I witnessed on the Amur, and during which scores of thousands of these intelligent animals came together from an immense territory, flying before the coming deep snow, in order to cross the Amur where it is narrowest – in all these scenes of animal life which passed before my eyes, I saw Mutual Aid and Mutual Support carried on to an extent which made me suspect in it a feature of the greatest importance for the maintenance of life, the preservation of each species, and its further evolution.

Somehow, There Are Still No Safety Standards
As the Biden administration has joined Republicans in supporting tougher work-search requirements for those receiving unemployment benefits, the president and his aides have insisted that workers will still be allowed to reject jobs at workplaces that are not adequately protecting them from COVID-19. But with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) failing to provide enforceable national workplace safety standards and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxing its mask guidelines for people who are vaccinated, workers have largely been left largely at the mercy of state and local governments — as well as their employers. “Because OSHA did not issue an emergency temporary standard, there are no real federal requirements here,” says Debbie Berkowitz, the Worker Safety and Health Program director at the National Employment Law Project (NELP). “Now, with everything reopening, everything is very muddled here on what exactly rights workers do have and what kind of mitigation measures employers need to put into place.”

In the future, possibly in a few decades from now, as technology progresses it will be possible to steal other people's voices, faces and bodies, and make realistic fake photographs, tapes or AI-generated "deep fakes." For example the average shmoe could scan a photo your mom and/or take the audio of your mom talking in a Facebook video and use a fake porn generator software to place her in a realistic fake video having sex with a horse, or how about political adversaries being framed with fake audio saying they want to bomb the president's car or admitted to sex trafficking underage prostitutes. While it's not a reality now since even Hollywood still can't make realistic-looking CGI, to pretend this won't eventually become a reality where anyone can record anyone's likeness with their smartphone (or contact lenses' camera) and generate 3d models or whatever of them and make fake videos / audio recordings of them is naive.

As it stands now with current laws, anyone making such material will get off scot-free. I think the ideals of "freedom of expression" used as an argument in favor of keeping pornography legal will no longer be congruent with reality when things get out of hand. If you make pornography strictly illegal (like in North Korea) then that could be enough of a deterrence to prevent the creation and propagation of any pornography. So regardless whether it's a capitalist or socialist system, I think pornography may become outlawed in the distant future because things would otherwise become too chaotic. Maybe they'll make an exception for hentai, who knows. What do you think?
