memes aside, everyone here can admit [email protected] have a big problem with self awareness. any guy who cuts his dick off but says you're a dysgenic freak is clearly coping I feel genuine empathy for them, and putting them on a pedestal isn't doing any good. Validating them isn't helping them but neither is demonizing Real [email protected] (not autogynephiles and incels) are commonly kids who were sold an idea of masculinity by their father at a young age. And they become hypermasculine to pls their dad, but they can't keep up that farce for long. They break down eventually and in retaliation, loop into the other direction (hyperfemininity) with 0 self awareness just as before, as a form of rebellion. They hate their body because they associate it with their dad, and the personality that their dad tried to project onto them I know this shit because I know like 30 [email protected] who know other [email protected], nearly all have the same old story or some variation of it You can help them by telling them to stop trying to act male or act female, and just be themselves. Being yourself isn't being a caricature of your own gender or the opposite one, and anyone who tells you that is probably a p edophile or porn addict Secondly, you can help by asking them to get out of this lucid, frilly headstate induced by estrogen and constant validation, and look at what they are actually doing. Self awareness helps I realize not all have this story. Some were incels who chop so they can become lesbian and potentially get sex. Those are unsavable imo but seriously, stop defending them from poltards all day and actually look at the insanity. this isn't normal, it's just as much mental illness as /x/ tier schizophrenia

>>1331180 >I really do think there needs to be a discussion on the left as to whether transgenderism is a mental illness. It was foolish for the left to simply go along with liberals on this divisive wedge issue. I mean, it's pretty obvious that dysphoria is a kind of self-hatred, and coupled with self-destructiveness it appears like a symptom of a larger problem

>>1331184 I don't disagree but more evidence is emerging that most transgender people don't have dysphoria. They often have untreated autism or other mental disabilities. All this transgender activism has always struck me as a crypto liberal way of shunting away people that need help. They can't blame mental illness one moral failing like boomers did in the past, so they assign all these psychological problems to gender dysphoria. That way there's still no moral obligation for society to help these people. And there's no way it's a coincidence that transitioning makes people both sterile and mentally placated.

Moderate Rebels:Biden, Trump, and bipartisan US imperialism in Latin America Ben Norton was invited to give this talk on US imperialism in Latin America for the anti-war group Massachusetts Peace Action. He discusses the similarities in the aggressive foreign policy of Biden, Trump, and Obama, and talks about Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and "Plan Biden" for Central America, Chile, Colombia, Peru, immigration in the United States, and more. https://soundcloud.com/moderaterebels/biden-trump-bipartisan-us-imperialism-latin-america US, Lobbyists and Arm Dealers Scramble to Reposition Amid Impending Saudi Defeat in Yemen WASHINGTON — In his last months in office, former President Donald Trump gave American defense contractors like Lockheed Martin and Reaper drone manufacturer General Atomics Aeronautical Systems billions in projected earnings through a controversial $23 billion arms deal with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a deal now “under review” by the Biden administration. President Joe Biden’s temporary halt to the U.S. arms deal and his decision to remove the Yemeni Houthi rebels from the state department’s list of global terrorist organizations have been touted as a harbinger of peace in Yemen, where a civil war that erupted during Barack Obama’s second term in office has persisted and expanded to include regional powers. The Saudi-led coalition of Arab states has dropped more than 22,000 bombs in Yemen since its intervention in 2015 and has contributed to the death of nearly a quarter of a million people since the conflict began. American weapons systems have played a key role in the genocidal war that has produced millions of war refugees in what can only be characterized as the greatest human tragedy of the 21st century. As the American arms industry rides a wave of record sales to the Saudi regime and the Middle East in general, a pause to the relentless advance of the biggest war economy on the planet strikes one as a political strategy, widely telegraphed by Biden even before he became the Democratic nominee. As soon as the former vice president was projected as the winner of the 2020 election, Saudi Arabia went on a lobbyist hiring spree to prepare for what the regime led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman knew was coming. https://www.mintpressnews.com/us-lobbyists-arm-dealers-scramble-reposition-amid-impending-saudi-defeat-yemen/276430/ Reminding South Korea Who is Boss: Biden’s Enforcers Pay a Visit In a Washington Post opinion piece, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin spelled out their objectives in visiting Japan, South Korea, and India. “The United States is now making a big push to revitalize our ties with friends and partners,” they wrote. The nature of those relationships, as perceived by Washington, is the subordination of Asian nations as junior partners in an anti-China coalition. “Our alliances are what our military calls ‘force multipliers,’ Blinken and Austin explain. “Our combined power makes us stronger when we must push back against China’s aggression and threats.” [1] That approach found a receptive audience in meetings with Japanese officials, who recognize it as offering a path to remilitarization. Results in South Korea were more ambiguous. By a substantial margin, China is South Korea’s primary trading partner, and relations between the two nations are generally solid. South Korea has no rational reason to join Washington’s fanatical anti-China campaign, no matter how much pressure the United States applies. A difference of opinion between Washington’s envoys and South Korean officials can be inferred by comparing the joint U.S.-Japan statement with South Korea’s, as only the latter lacked China-bashing verbiage. https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/03/25/reminding-south-korea-who-is-boss-bidens-enforcers-pay-a-visit/

The bigger problem with using "accelerationism" to refer to leftist apathy toward Biden (or the rest of the DNC Blob™ during the primaries), is that it wasn't even theoretically applicable. Many leftists viewed Trump as not only practically identical on MOST issues with the The Blob™, but that in addition to those Trump was ACTUALLY BETTER on some issues either quasi-intentionally (warmongering, offshoring) or incidentally (forcing shitlibs to pretend they care about his generic Biden-esque policies, because ORANGE MAN BAD) compared to The Blob™.

>>1327644 Not a wobblie but >what happened to it and what's up with it now? Faded into irrelevance due to government opposition, internal schisms over organization and loosing out to other trade unions. Its going through a minor revival though its still a shadow of what it was. >Why did other unions like the CIO start to grow while the IWW was declining? Firstly the CIO wasnt a single union but a federation of unions. Secondly its vastly easier and more popular with people to organise along particular trades/crafts/work than everyone.

Is imperialism ok when it's communists doing it? What would that even resemble? I'd require some level of reducation, assuming the "satellite" government doesn't completely fold into the mother government the only way to do it would be through a power authority, with electricians, machinists, railroaders and other electricity-dependent people gradually forming a new government within the old or simply taking control of the old government. I seem to remember there being a lot of Soviet movies about this but it's been like thirty years since I last heard of them. I also know about Eastern Germany and Eastern Europe after WW2, that doesn't count. >pic unrelated

In Capitalist logic, individual capitalists must maximize only their profits. The most powerful capitalist maximize their profits with imperialism, they don't care if it hurts everybody else.

>>1329254 No. Violence existed before capitalism.

When the USSR was directing Sheng Shicai's Xinjiang government they more or less just took resources, which is textbook imperialism afaik

>purityfagging "Nobody should eat until everyone's full" is my favorite line from Xavier: Renegade Angel, and it's applicable here. Yeah, great, you can identify policies as not being enough. But a movement that can only pooh-pooh anything but revolution will have a hard time getting popular support for their revolution. People tend to like you more when you can prove yourself capable of even basic reforms.
>1325747 It’s not slavery because it isn’t the lump sum purchase of a person’s labor in perpetuity, anymore than buying food is slavery to the producers. Privately owning and then leasing land/housing is an unnecessary institution for distributing housing, but it isn’t slavery. The word has a sense to it of an extremely low category of servitude. Wage labor is however the blatant institutional piecemeal sale of one’s labor. It is much closer to outright slavery, the wage contract grants the employer the right to direct your labor and implicitly (usually not outright declared, but it is obviously the case) appropriate the results. The wage contract claims the employer is merely buying your labor services and the right to direct them, but clearly the right to direct labor and appropriation of the results are separate things. This is also clearly seen in tort law, whereby an employee can be sued for a negligent tort (an industrial accident for instance) because they are considered ultimately responsible for results of actions outside the scope of the proper fulfillment of their wage contract. So the employer effectively has the implicit right to the results of all actions deemed reasonably beneficial to their business needs for the wage contract, but actions outside of that return responsibility to the agent. I think this is all pretty common sense outside of any legal argument (let alone among Marxists), but I make it anyways just because average people have a tendency to deny it out of indoctrination into the liberal order. It is common to believe that somehow the owner of the business truly does “create” the results, through their “entrepreneurship” or something, but it is a legal fact that the employment contract is the literal sale of ownership over the results of one’s labor. Whether the institutional convention of private money capital being required to fund startup costs results in some responsibility conferring to the capitalist is irrelevant to the fact that the capitalist purchases the right to responsibility for your labor from you, which is prior and continues to exist implicit in the fact that your responsibility for your labor returns to you when you either commit a negligent tort, a crime, or leave work for the day.
