Junger brothers, Carl Schmitt, Heidegger, etc. Kek or cringe?
Well, Ernst did had a brief sovietboo phase in the 20's because he saw it as an example of total mobilization of society that had only existed in Prussia (or his idealized version of it) and that could perhaps replace bourgeois democracy in Germany.

We used capitalism to destroy capitalism. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0967067X96800225 >Abstract >One of the abiding curiosities in the 20th century has been the success of Marxist revolutions in underdeveloped societies. In the case of China, not only did Marxism—Leninism provide little assistance to the communist party on economic development, the problem was compounded by the disastrous ideas of Mao Zedong which, by the time of his death, brought the economy to the brink of ruin. It was Deng Xiaoping who provided the ideological roadmap and legitimation for the reform and modernization of the Chinese economy. By returning to classical Marxism's emphasis on productive forces, Deng managed to transform Marxism into a developmental nationalist ideology. In so doing, Deng paved the way for the current resurgence of nationalism in the People's Republic.

3 DRG Jawans Killed By IED Blast Triggered By CPI Maoist Cadres In Narayanpur District An alleged CPI (Maoist) attack took place in Chhattisgarh’s Narayanpur district on Tuesday. During the incident, 3 DRG jawans were killed in an IED bus explosion.

US intelligence thinks you’re stupid: ODNI report blames Russia, ignores Colombian election interference Russiagate is back! That’s right. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) says Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei meddled in the 2020 U.S. election. But not only they: Lebanese Hezbollah, Cuba and Venezuela did it too. I know what you’re thinking: Where is the evidence? Well, the ODNI report doesn’t show any. But phrases like “we judge,”“we assess,” “probably,” and “likely” are used dozens of times. Apparently for corporate media, that’s good enough.Never mind that, way down on the last page, the report says “Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact.” So it’s the opinion, the estimation of the intelligence agencies. https://thegrayzone.com/2021/03/22/odni-russia-colombia-election-interference/ Joe Biden and the decline of American power Whether it's the Middle East, Russia, Iran or China, the new administration is changing the language (out goes the "China virus") while keeping the substance. Last month, Blinken said Trump "was right in taking a tougher approach to China", while commerce secretary Gina Raimondo has said she will continue the Trump policy of using the "full toolkit at my disposal... to protect America and our networks from Chinese interference". Economist Jeffrey Sachs describes US exceptionalism - established 200 years ago with the Monroe Doctrine, but actually as old as the first colonial settlement in America - as a “civic religion”, which sees the US having a “destiny and duty to expand its power and the influence of its institutions and beliefs until they dominate the world”. Dwight Eisenhower, who left the role in 1961, was the last US president to seriously question the pursuit of military supremacy and intolerance of other ideologies and political systems that has governed US foreign policy since 1945 when President Truman dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “We must be careful to ensure that the ‘merchants of death’ do not come to dictate policy," Eisenhower warned at the end of his time as president. Biden is no Eisenhower (who still authorised the overthrow of democratic governments in Iran and Guatemala). His support for Israeli colonialism is no less unconditional than Trump’s, even if his officials make weak noises about a long-dead two-state solution. US military aid to dictators like Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi continues, despite massive human rights abuses carried out by his regime. In the wider Middle East and beyond it, the US finds itself at odds with too many international agreements and institutions to list - from arms control, to human rights, to climate and health, exemplified by Trump’s withdrawal from the World Health Organisation just as the Covid-19 pandemic required global cooperation like never before. The US, like Russia, China and Israel, is one of the few countries that is not a signatory to the ICC. Trump even imposed sanctions on the court’s officials. Washington’s ever-growing regime of sanctions against countries that defy its will today includes Iran, Venezuela, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, North Korea, and Cuba - imposing immense suffering on their peoples while failing to dislodge any regime. https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/us-china-trump-biden-confront-power-waning Austerity-Addicted Media Scaremonger Over Infrastructure ‘Spending Spree’ As soon as Democrats took over Washington with big plans for reviving the economy, corporate media started sounding the alarm about government spending (FAIR.org, 1/25/21). With the party’s infrastructure bill—which could come in around $2 trillion over four years—now pending, the media deficit hawks are on high alert, tossing around big, scary numbers to throw cold water on the bill. It’s hardly surprising to find deficit hawkery from the Washington Post editorial board (3/11/21), which urged Democrats to “offset some or all of the cost [of the infrastructure bill], through higher revenues, reduced spending on lower-priority items or a mix of the two.” But proposals for government spending on long-overdue infrastructure investment are also spurring “straight” news reporting full of largely unfounded assumptions and concerns. On ABC‘s This Week (3/14/21), host George Stephanopoulos framed his first question about the infrastructure bill to House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi with bold certainty: “That’s going to require new taxes. Can you keep Democrats united behind a proposal like that and attract any Republican support?” When Pelosi avoided the question of taxes, Stephanopoulos pressed further: “But it is going to take new taxes, right?” https://fair.org/home/austerity-addicted-media-scaremonger-over-infrastructure-spending-spree/

The left shouldnt be agaisnt the police. They should be agaisnt the army. Costa rica abolished their army and theyre doing fine. Fuck the army and the people who join the army. Atleast the navy, airforce and space force are useful for national defence instead of just imperialism. I dont expect the war hawk democrats to share that sentiment though.

Tudeh Party of Iran pays tribute to ‘tireless militant’ Ali Khavari, longstanding leader who has died aged 97 Khavari was then sent to work for the international communist Peace & Socialism magazine based in Prague, meaning he was abroad when Iran’s theocratic new regime arrested thousands of communists and suspected sympathisers in early 1983, executing many of them. As the only surviving central committee secretary, he played a pivotal role in rebuilding the Tudeh party, becoming its first secretary and acting as a mentor to countless younger communists. He died in Berlin on Friday. https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/w/tudeh-party-iran-pays-tribute-tireless-militant-ali-khavari-longstanding-leader-who Bombing of government office in China kills at least five, including suspect An explosion, believed to be a deliberate bombing attack, has rocked a community committee office outside China’s southern city of Guangzhou.

Saying the quiet part loud: the Police Bill puts the class war out in the open THERE is a fearful symmetry between the revelations that former Tory minister Norman Tebbitt relied on information provided by police spies and the purposes of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill presently going through Parliament. Lord Tebbit, as he is now styled, was among Margaret Thatcher’s most hard-line ministers. His enduring trait is an open and unshakeable adherence to a set of extraordinarily reactionary political views. His great virtue is that in his open expression of ruling-class arrogance and entitlement he makes abundantly clear that the sinews of the capitalist state are unreservedly devoted to countering the influence of the working class on the affairs of the nation and in countering the political influence of all those forces that represent working-class interests in the present moment or advance the cause of the working class in the future. https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/e/saying-quiet-part-loud-police-bill-puts-class-war-out-open China and the Perils of Bi-Partisanship The Biden administration remains eager to find common ground with Republican legislators. The president has high hopes that he can attract Republican support for an infrastructure bill this summer, given that rebuilding American bridges, highways and the like was a priority for the previous administration. But here’s a truly troubling scenario. Casting around for another unifying topic, the Biden team has seized upon China. Democrats and Republicans alike are concerned about what China is doing these days. There is bipartisan disgust over what’s happening in Hong Kong and Xinjiang. Hawks in both parties have long warned about Beijing’s actions in the South China Sea. Despite wildly different economic ideologies, Democrats and Republicans have joined hands in their opposition to Chinese trade and currency policies, cavalier approach to intellectual property rights, and efforts to dominate markets in the Global South.On the face of it, however, the bill that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is starting to pull together is just another infrastructure initiative. It is meant “to shore up U.S. supply chains, expand American production of semiconductors, create 5G networks nationwide and pour billions into investments into U.S. manufacturing companies and hubs, among other proposals,” according to The Washington Post. But it’s not just infrastructure. The measure is specifically designed to bolster the full-spectrum U.S. fight against China. https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/03/22/china-and-the-perils-of-bi-partisanship/ 10 Years Ago, NATO Intervened in Libya — And Created a Complete Disaster In 2016, a report found that the intervention of British, French, and American armed forces into Libya in March 2011 was “not informed by accurate intelligence.” It went on to say that the action, which was ostensibly to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi’s government, had “drifted into an opportunist policy of regime change,” the result of which was “political and economic collapse, inter-militia and intertribal warfare, humanitarian and migrant crises, widespread human rights violations, the spread of [weapons] across the region and the growth of ISIL in North Africa.” This summary of the war in Libya, which began ten years ago, was not from an antiwar organization or one of the fifteen UK MPs who opposed the war. These are the words the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, in a document entitled “Libya: Examination of intervention and collapse and the UK’s future policy options.” And despite this strong judgement from a cross-party parliamentary committee, the Libyan catastrophe is once again being cited as a positive example of liberal interventionism, as the political establishment in London and Washington continues to attempt to rehabilitate the ideas that were so discredited after the 2003 war in Iraq. These attempts are part of the current discussions around Britain’s place in the world, and dovetail with elements of Boris Johnson’s defense and security review outlined this week — which includes a commitment to greater military spending and an expansion of Britain’s nuclear arsenal. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2021/03/nato-libya-war-uk-us-france-regime-change

"That OP happened, trust me guise"
>>1329829 Man, GG was a masterclass in how to fold a popular rejection of state ideology into pure culture war bullshit rather than any class consciousness. I even read Milo back in the day, as well as various other people like Christina Hoff Summers. People were so eager to find talking heads to confirm what they were seeing with the rot of SJWism, they completely abandoned any principles they might have had. We all hated gawker so much that we eventually turned Breitbart into a gawker of the right, with all the same unethical blogging in the name of journalism bullshit. I really hated the feminists more than anything, trying to push their ideology as this neutral normative framework we all had to accept to be a good person. And implying men were their oppressors. But guess what, hating them doesn't make the world a better place. Only class struggle can.

>>1329835 The real problem with /gg/ (aside from what IMHO was the biggest initial tactical error, spending money on charities and appealing to NGOs like SPJ or EFF to appeal to goodwill against the SJW swindlers, instead of concentrating our money on aggressive class action lawsuits and hiring real private investigators to individually obliterate SJW gooneratti clique one at a time) was that it was falsely slandered as right-wing from the start, successfully causing every nominally left-wing institution and organization to shun it, while simultaneously herding all the worst human detritus of the right into our ranks, and leaving us with zero institutions willing to talk with us aside from the likes of Breitbart. That same dynamic also caused a lot of the milquetoast center-left to center-right people that initially formed a bridge minority within GG (for instance, Sargon) to go full aut-right and pander to the /pol/yps. Same with the "cultural Marxism" meme, which we was either pushed unfiltered by rightards, or disingenuously denied as having any evolutionary link with brainlet PoMos cranks on the left by leftists. After seeing such incredible potential for a purge of SJWs inside the left from the initial A+/Slymepit prelude to GG, watching the whole thing get slandered as and coopted by the right, then disintegrate, was such a terrible shitshow. All that said, I'm still glad the battle lines were drawn and the whole populism vs. neocon/neolib war broke into public consensus at all. Things were getting REALLY bad without any fight being put up against the SJWs from about 2007-2013.
>>1329837 >SPJ or EFF Both of these are fraudulent charities
>>1330080 The former is a professional industry org, the latter is a political lobbying org. By charities, I was referring to stuff like St. Jude's Hospital, Action Against Hunger, PACER Bullying Prevention, American Society for Suicide Prevention, WWF Sealion Fund, etc. Those were cute, but the money could've actually fixed the issue if spent more aggressively to target the enemy. One exception I thought was okay was of course TFYC, since they were victim #1.
