The Chinese communist regime is growing bolder by the day. Seizing the assets and in many cases, 'disappearing', their billionaires. No trial, no charges, just taken out like in Stalinist Russia. https://www.reddit.com/r/neoconNWO/comments/l1r0bz/why_do_chinese_billionaires_keep_disappearing/

Books on CIA Anonymous 01/16/2021 (Sat) 02:20:31 No. 1294621 [Reply]
I wanna learn more about the shady stuff the CIA/US Gov did (MK Ultra, Naomi, Tuskegee, etc.) but all the books on them are David Icke shit. Post any credible titles here.

>>1295110 This is the truth. Leftist, especially western leftist, treat them as their version of the jooz to act as some shadowy trickster that is the real reason behind all their sides failures. The reality is that during the Cold War, the KGB clearly outmatched them. Not ONCE during the entire cold war were the able to get someone into the Kremlin and this is because there was a soviet mole inside the CIA who they still to this day dont know the identity of. Other than this, there is also this meme about them overturning all sorts of social democrat governments in south america or around the world, but this is a half truth at best. The reality is that pretty much every single coup that happened during the cold war was a completely internal thing, with the plotters simply telling the US about it right before they kicked it off as a way to not rock their boat and have a supporter on the outside. The idea that the CIA would infiltrate these places and find some acolyte to do their bidding and then overthrow their government is Chomsky conspiracytard nonsense. The only one I can think of that actually comes close to this is in Iran against Prime Minister Mossadegh. This conspiracy also doesnt account for other coups against right wingers or at least not socialist leaders that the CIA was in on, like Nassers coup in Egypt against the King, or the coup in Argentina against Isabel Peron. Its at the point where I wonder if the CIA itself encouraged this Chomsky/Rage Against the Machine song take on them as the final boss shadowy badass group to make them seem like feared, hypercompetent figures that CANNOT be outwitted.

Capitalism requires growth to survive
(25.25 KB 500x306 socialism or barbarism.jpg)
>>1305031 Another good example of what you're referring to, and one where the cause of capitalism aligns with malignant centralization, is the preference for instant streaming at peak hours (e.g.: Netflix, Spotify), vs. cached offline download at off-peak hours (e.g.: torrents). The former incentivizes centralized server facilities and highly asymmetric networks using dumber "consumption-only" end-user devices, while the latter works best with symmetric networks using more versatile end-user devices with significant processing and storage. This has the infrastructural end result (especially for wireless) of gobbling up limited bandwidth for needless redundant transmissions. Also interestingly, by far its greatest root cause is ISPs/telcos/tier-1 peers intentionally hiding their actual (per/GB throughout the day) costs, in order to sell "bundled" services such as cellular voice, subscription TV, and CDN rackspace. >>1307590 Note that isn't necessarily an indication socialism will necessary be the thing that replaces it when growth falters, without our intentional intervention.
The simple criticism of degrowth is that advocacy for such a stance is based on lies and climate woo woo. You don't need to make an argument about the philosophy behind it, except to explain where the climate woo woo arises and why it is so prevalent in our current world. The truth of course is that meeting human needs is no longer a serious matter of growth. We could produce far more than we do, but we don't because we produce for the profit motive, for the market, rather than meeting human need. We have no shortage of labor, and we could build a lot of factories right now if there were political will to do so. The fundamental point is that (a) no one in power wants the poor to have things, because controlled deprivation underpins literally everything about our present social order, and (b) we don't really need a bunch of new factories to meet needs, because a lot of things people want are just sitting unsold, and (c) people don't actually need that much to live happy lives, but we are deprived specifically of basic comfort and security. The problem facing people is fundamentally a political one - that we live in societies that beat and cajole people to modify their behavior, rather than societies that are oriented to meet needs. The market society is an indirect way of turning those beatings and cajolings into dollar signs, but markets are not the entirety of the story. We see enough beatings and ways in which people are disciplined, and where the market forces don't create deprivation, brute force and institutions exist to enforce that deprivation even amidst plenty. The demands of the people often aren't even demands for material wealth or more money, but demands for basic decency and the ability to actually live their life. Wanting money is only a means to achieve those ends, rather than simply coveting the things themselves. You could do a lot to alleviate homelessness just by abolishing the absurd levels of rent-seeking and leaving the landowners and finance capital fucked, but the reason the rent-seeking is encouraged is precisely because professional-class and upper-class people want to wipe out the undeserving outright. They embraced eugenic value a long long time ago, and it's been this way for over a century.

You are making me think a system based on torrents and end-user devices would be cheaper and able to grow more than central servers.
>>1307616 Yes. Because it would be biased toward conserving scarce resources (network bandwidth, especially long-distance and/or peak hours), in favor of abundant resources (nearline storage, which beyond the level of an individual HDD has no economies of scale). This of course comes on top of other benefits such as reliability, fault-tolerance, adaptability, openness, agility, privacy, security, and freedom.

Everyone "leftist" I know and seen online seems to think that the stock market is gambling. They refer to it as gambling while it's just a system for wealth transfer. Why is that? Why do people, especially those in the left (actual left, not centrist) think it as gambling? Is it because a remote chance of losing money exists, even if market is backed by the state? Pic related. Everything you see recovered, yet peoples opinions didn't change.

>>1307494 >>1307594 Norwegian state media (NRK) did a documentary on the stock market which included an experiment: 6 random people (3 pairs) compete with a pair of professional stock brokers. Just for fun they also made a fifth competitor: a few cows shitting in certain parts of a field determines which stocks they buy. The winner is whoever gets the highest return. The cows won.

>>1302478 >left wingers say he is going to genocide Muslims. I wonder where does this come from? He's said some pretty terrible stuff about Caucasians in the past. He supported some idiotic right wing riots in Moscow where a bunch of nazis went around beating up muslims. He also said Georgians (or maybe generally Caucasians, I dont remember) were cockroaches who should be shot. He also launched his political career with some half brain movement called "Stop Feeding the Caucasus" or something. He went from being a foaming right winger to the golden boy of the western media pretty quick.

Is the illuminati real? There's some pretty compelling evidence that something is amiss in the world of power; big business and world power. Then there's the WorldCorp thing. I think most conspiracy theories are retarded, and the rabbit-hole has caused people to go completely off the deep end. What do you think, comrades?

the bavarian illuminati were a group that formed to dismantle feudalism and usher in industrialism, they were disbanded before 1900 by papal decree, that was the end of it
