It seems the Civil War is about to get going in Myanmar.

The neoliberal National Unity Government has proclaimed war to the Junta and have constituted themselves formally into an Army. https://twitter.com/NUGMyanmar/status/1391427762028568580

Now they're most likely training people to fight guerrilla in the forest and probably later in the cities too.

Making this thread so that any related news will get posted here instead of opening new threads.
It will also regularly be bumped.

This bit is interesting

>In Yangon, small, independent guerrilla groups have added yet another dimension to the already complex cast of armed actors resisting the coup. These groups, which have no affiliation with the National Unity Government or ethnic armed groups, have demonstrated a willingness to use asymmetrical warfare and non-conventional tactics to achieve their goals.

well, in the sense of their recent history no, the Ashkenazi Jews of Europe are not a population primarily based in south Europe (which you complain is an "edge/fucking EDGE" case >>319381, >>319384 ). In fact, they are based from central and eastern Europe. Since you consider southern Europeans (Sicilians, Maltese, South Italians) as "edge"-case Europeans, I'm guessing your metric for "European-ness" is either: "the more north of Europe, the more European" or "the more center of Europe, the more European", since according to you south Europeans are "edge" case (i.e. barely) Europeans. Well, in that case, according to your own geographic standards then, Ashkenazi Jews of Europe are arguably even "more European" than southern Europeans (Sicilians, Maltese, south Italians) because they have a historic population base that is centered more to the center of Europe (therefore "peak European" if central Europe is your standard for "peak European-ness" and "closer to peak European" than the Sicilians/Maltese/south Italians if northern Europe is your standard for "peak European")

Category error, the bourgeoisie are defined by their ownership of private property (the means of production). Marxist economic classifications are based on the property relationship and the relationship to production. The ethnicity of a particular capitalist has nothing to do with their class in Marxist terms.

WTF AUSTRIANS, IS THIS TRUE?

I just watched this clip from channel 4 and Austrians have public subsidized housing with walkable neighborhoods? I'm from burgerland, those apartments look like they'd be middle to high end and cost like $2k-$4k a month or something depending on location. There's greenery, there's multiple swimming pools, a sauna.

WTF. Do all western europeans live like this? Just Austrians? It looks like a goddamn hotel

>China nuclear reactor: French partner calls meeting over leak
>French energy giant EDF owns 30 percent of the joint venture that owns and operates Taishan nuclear power plant in Guangdong province north of Hong Kong. State-owned China General Nuclear Power Corp owns the other 70 percent.
>“EDF has been informed of the increase in the concentration of certain noble gases in the primary circuit of reactor n°1 [number one] of the Taishan nuclear power plant,” the company said in a statement on its website. “The presence of certain noble gases in the primary circuit is a known phenomenon, studied and provided for in the reactor operating procedures.”
>It is unclear exactly where the build-up of gases has happened, leaving experts scratching their heads as to how severe the problem may be.
>“It’s clear that some gas leaked from the fuel rod, but did the pressure vessel that contains the fuel rods also fail?” Henry Sokolski, executive director of the Washington-based Nonproliferation Policy Education Center, said to Al Jazeera. “And if you’re really unlucky, did the containment building fail? Because when a containment building fails, radioactivity can be released into the atmosphere and that is not good.”
>United States news outlet CNN on Monday, citing US officials and documents it had reviewed, reported that the US government has spent the past week assessing a report of a leak at Taishan nuclear power plant after EDF subsidiary Framatome warned of an “imminent radiological threat”.
>US officials do not currently believe the situation poses a severe safety threat, said CNN.
>China General Nuclear Power Corp said in a statement on Sunday that data showed “the Taishan station and its surrounding environment meet normal parameters”, according to a translation by Reuters News Agency.
>But CNN reported that a letter it had seen to the US Department of Energy from Framatome – which designed the reactors at Taishan and continues to help operate them – included allegations that China was raising the acceptable limit for radiation detection outside the nuclear facility in order to avoid shutting it down.

Ah, I wondered when will they start concern-trolling and lying about China's nuclear reactors. As China wants to replace coal with nuclear power (they even have coal energy plants built with future "rearming" in mind), westerners will definitely try and portray it as a new genocide. They always do that towards ANY China's policy that lets them move forward. Expect more of this over the coming years.

Fisher is cringe. Listen to Matt instead: to be a pessimist or to be an optimist both are idiotic. You don't know what is coming. You CAN'T predict it because we are basically entering "here be dragons" teritory. You can't assume it will all be doom and gloom just as you can't assume we will get a happy ending. Probably it will be somewhere down the middle. And at the end of the day, one thing that you CAN be optimistic about is that SOMETHING will happen. Good? Bad? You can't predict it, however we know what we have now is bad-leaning, so I say we should at the very least be happy that a change is comimg. You don't think it is all coming to a stop though? You believe Fishers vampire castle is immovable? Well maybe, but guess what, the castle is built on bad foundations that are getting washed out (quite literally with the rising sea levels) as we speak. Texas snowstorm, corona, cali wildfires? All just a warning of what is to come. Same way Floyd riots also were a warning of what will happen in the streets. So sit the fuck back and enjoy the ride through what is bound to be our histories most interesting time.

>The biggest story of the past fifty years in American politics has been the ascendancy of the right, and it’s a story of apostasy. At each stage of the conservative movement’s long march to power, crucial aid was provided by heretics from the left. Progressives recoiled from the New Deal and turned reactionary; ex-Communists helped to launch National Review, in the nineteen-fifties; recovering socialists founded neoconservatism in the sixties and seventies; New Left radicals turned on their former comrades and former selves in the Reagan years. Ronald Reagan, whose Presidency brought the movement to its high-water mark, was himself once a New Deal liberal. In the course of a lifetime, the prevailing political winds are westerly—they blow from left to right.

Why do so many people experience left wing politics as a "phase", typically in teenagehood, young adulthood, or the university years?

And the opposite is so rare, comparatively? Is it psychology? biology of aging? or just contingent history in the 20th centuy?

i am a mautist and i have respect for anarchists. not all of them, definitely not vaushite liberal types, but definitely some anarchists have my respect. there is a certain kind of anarchist who is so idealistic to the point of refusing to give an inch on any principle, who fights the pigs while other "leftists" sit home and sip coffee, who you know isn't very likely to change the world in a big way because their anarchist praxis is flawed—but who is so utterly earnest and serious about their task that you can't help but say hell yeah when you see them deck a riot officer with a louisville slugger.
if anarchists post a counter-revolutionary threat, any marxist party worth its salt will consider those anarchists as enemies and treat them accordingly. this i understand and am not shy about, but it does still pain me to think that some really great people are gonna be on the other side of the line.

it's not just rent anon, but also buying all the equipment you need, also insurance adds cost, and labor isnt free even if it's your own labor, because you need to be paid in order to pay your rent for your apartment, and food, and electricity and everything. So labor is not 0, startup costs exists, also insurance, and then you have to make sure it makes money so you're not just throwing that much money away… i mean if i had 150k just sitting around, i'd just coast on it for a decade or two personally. And there's the stress of starting a business… i mean all the same shitty nonsense of a normal business applies to a co-op, it has to make money, and any money it makes should be re-invested so it doesnt fall behind the market.
Basically capitalism sucks. It has contradictions and liberatory forces within it, but they don't lie in starting a business imho

No, because it's objectively correct. Opposition to bioessentialism is the epitome of idpol CIA-mindfucking. Bioessentialism is a prerequisite to a functional, logical worldview and every one of the foundational texts was written by people who took these ideas for granted. It wasn't until certain idpol oriented groups started latching on in the late 1800s that this even became contentious and the USSR retained a total absence of liberal memes until Gorbachev ruined everything. DPRK and the Axis of Resistance are so noticeably different in the leftism because they continue to take bioessentialism for granted while radlibs take opposition to bioessentialism as the only essential element of their "leftism".

Bioleninsim is mythology invented by a guy trying to cope with the premise that white men (his words) are not the only people residing in the upper class. It's literally "Other people appointed these people because they are inherently less qualified and are inferior in every way, that way they remain loyal to the elites/Jews/etc. because they know the only way they will be capable of holding onto their position is by supporting the new status quo, as they themselves are aware of their own inferiority". He claims that the Lenin used the same strategy, but in terms of the inherently inferior lower classes of Russia who were aware of their own inferiority compared to the ruling nobility, who deserved to be there naturally by right and by genetics. The workers, knowing they were naturally undeserving of rule or anything else besides their lot in life, accepted Lenin's call for revolution because they knew it meant upward mobility for them, and so remained loyal afterwords as well because they knew the only reason they enjoyed their new position was because of the state artificially placing them there. Bioleninism, as the author later lays out, is this fully applied to biology, with no "obfuscation" of class.

It's fucking retarded nonsense that is practically just an extension of the rhetoric surrounding affirmative action and hiring quotas taken to the extreme. It is not an actually coherent or historically based ideology.

Pretty good thread. We got nearly all the classics I think except for Adam Tooze's Wages of Destruction: https://archive.org/details/ToozeAdamTheWagesOfDestructionTheMakingAndBreakingOfTheNaziEconomy

Now I generally caution against citing Hitler as an authority on Nazi economics. One because he was stupid, two because Nazism wasn't singlehandedly made by one man's evil, and three because Hitler sometimes spoke in a way that could be construed as "socialistic" by those trying to make the argument. But for the sake of trivia:
>I absolutely insist on protecting private property. It is natural and salutary that the individual should be inspired by the wish to devote a part of the income from his work to building up and expanding a family estate. Suppose the estate consists of a factory. I regard it as axiomatic, in the ordinary way, that this factory will be better run by one of the members of the family than it would be by a State functionary providing, of course, that the family remains healthy. In this sense, we must encourage private initiative.

>[Hitler is in the middle of listing challenges of selecting a head of state] 3. Care must be taken that the Chief of State will not succumb to the influence of the plutocracy, and cannot be forced to certain decisions by any pressure of that sort. That's why it's important that he should be supported by a political organisation whose strength has its roots in the people, and which can have the upper hand over private interests. [Hitler goes on to formulate, to his mind, a system capable circumventing aforementioned pitfalls.] What I have said should a fortiori be true of an organisation founded on reason.
