It's not that easy with Venezuela.

Their oil company was one of the best in the world, invested a lot on the country and brought a lot of money in to the government to spend on their policies. Then the socialist government forced them to replace their experts with political cronies, the company became useless and the money disappeared. You may hate private companies but it's exactly that attitude which caused Venezuela to collapse. Surely if a company is doing a good job and helping the country it's no bad thing to support them rather than undermining them for purely ideological reasons.

It worked. Chile was saved from socialism. Pinochet wasn't a nice man, but that's unavoidable when dealing with deadly threats like socialism. The people he killed were ready themselves to kill far larger numbers of Chileans, and they intended to export their revolution to other countries to cause the same catastrophe there.

The election of Allende was much like Brexit - stupid, uninformed voters making a disastrous decision, against their own interests. Turkeys voting for Christmas.

I tend to agree. It obviously usually depends on the circumstances and some groups may never get heard if they don't have their own spaces within the movement, where they can engage with groupspecific problems.

I don't want to pretend to be very knowledgable about the US concerning their organisational structure. I am generally quite worried that the left seems to be losing blue collar workers and rural areas to the right and even far right all over the west and it is my impression that this is even worse in the US than in Germany (where I live). I think that part of the reason for that is, that we actively push those people away with a heavy focus on identity politics and often don't even try to help them even though their conditions are increasingly destitute.

It's a balancing act. Different groups of people may be in a different social position, so it's probably not a good idea to go ahead with stuff that pretends everyone is the same (which mostly tends to reflect what's good for whoever is dominant in that organisation/movement). Yet a shared line and effective politics does require streamlining, which may leave some interests out. Whether that justifies a split to organise separately has to be considered on a case by case basis. And in any case you can march separately but still strike together, which is probably the way to build a larger movement anyway if there's no dominant organisations already in existence (which seems to be the case in the US at the moment).

Yes! I would like to add that people tend to naturally identify with groups and tend to prefer their perceived group member over others. If we put the emphasis on a certain kind of group eg 'race' we push people to identify with this group. We should build bridges not walls among the working class.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That question is grounded in the idea that whites and First Nations are at odds with each other. The French settlers to, well, all of North America, were FRIENDS with the first nations. As a matter of fact, the French colonies "lost" so many settlers to "Savage assimilation" that the religious authorities put together a whole plan to try to put a stop to it. The word for a blend of white and Amerindian is a French word: Métis. It's no coincidence.

The French settlers, left to their own devices, would have blended in with the Amerindians, in a joyous eternal cultural exchange. Of course there would be NO "Amerindians" left at all in Québec if that had happened, and none of us would be truly white. We'd be something else. But the important take-away from this is that the French speaking people have a VASTLY different approach to interacting with the First Nations. As such, one cannot assume that what goes for Canada goes for Québec.

You must remember the whole Meech Lake debacle, where Québec wasn't given it's "distinct society" clause. As a result of this, Québec is not even constitutionally part of Canada. But here again, the First Nations sided with the English (or were they "influenced") by the English Canadian political powers? Either way, the First Nations vehemently protested Québec getting its "distinct society" status.

It doesn't take a 10,000 IQ to figure out that doing so was self-harm: from the precedent of Québec obtaining such a status, it would have made it easy for the First Nations to do so as well: win-win-win, with the only losing side being old, big money and power that seeks to preserve the status quo. So OF COURSE it didn't happen.

No, I think if Québec were to become its own nation, mutually-beneficial deals could be struck with the First Nations and you might actually find that Québec would start stretching West and East in the North, with other First Nation territories defecting to come to us, where they would be welcome and not ostracized and genocided.

Make it! That's how it starts. Maybe few will post there in /s/Québéc, but eventually it could be a thriving community.

IMO, I would feel a little sad to see Québéc go, but I would understand. I suspect it might be a tough go without the rest of Canada for a while, but eventually it would even out. I'm against centralized power so I also wouldn't object if there were 5 or 6 new countries that come from the old Canada, perhaps still in tight cooperation - like Europe, though I'd also like to see more currencies too, not just one potentially crippling Euro or Canadian dollar. Also fuck the Queen.

I would have liked it if the Southern States had seceded rather than remain controlled and diminished under central power. The MSM story about the Civil War is almost all bullshit.

Here's a tricky question for you... If Québéc were to break away, what would you do when the vast Northern regions with their rich resources try to break away into their own First Nations sovereign territory? For that matter, that question could really be applied to all of Canada, where 90% of us live within 200 km of the US border. The hinterland is always enslaved by the heartland.

I agree about worker cooperatives. Here in Québec we used to have real Mutual Insurance companies (meaning non-profit, where everybody chips in, and those in need cash out according to policy rules), Credit Unions (technically these still exist but have morphed into for-profit financial institutions) and other (agricultural, seed banks, and various other) cooperatives. They work. Most of the time. Of course, they're run by people, and people can be... "influenced".

Ever notice that almost all of the nations listed as enemies of the USA currently under war or sanctions don't have central banks under the B.I.S? Funny that.

SJW Corporate Cultural Communism is indeed truly insane - just as extremist exploitative capitalism continues to be utterly irrational (though we're a little more used to it). Too big to fail means we're to small to succeed - so socialism bailouts for the rich but not for the rest. Despite my hate for all big governments and corporations of all divisive types, I still believe in socialism in balance and unity with capitalism for the small guys - including the 3rd type of Marxist socialism: worker directed enterprises, aka worker cooperatives.

Yes, the socialism PsyOp has reached staggering proportions. It has become normalized insanity. Also, Venezuela has de-privatized its central bank. Gotta wonder... Who would dislike this? Oh yeah... The guys making monetary policy FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT. They can't do that anymore. But they are still a HUGE weight in the international financial markets, able to crash the Venezuelan Bolivar's value at will. But they wouldn't, would they? YES THEY WOULD. AND HAVE. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. A country does something like that.

Why is the West at odds with Iran? Because its central bank is national and not owned by private banksters. Again, nothing to do with so-called "socialism".

Indeed.

First you have to ask who developed and promoted that phrase.

SJWs, Socialists, and Marxists never call it "Cultural Marxism". Generally speaking it's the right who has a problem with socialism, communism, and Marxism AND are the ones using the "Cultural Marxism" phrase.

Cultural and Marxism would suggest that it's about a culture for a Marxist worker-led economy.

The reality is that the right and/or conservatives and/or capitalists consider communism equivalent to totalitarianism (as if capitalism and fascism aren't different forms capable of totalitarian tendencies).

Political correct speech, manners, and culture have been conflated and now taken to absurdist and totalitarian extremes at the expense of free speech. You are guaranteed free speech but not freedom from being offended. Further, being an asshole is not a crime - yet.

Cultural totalitarianism is weaponizing political viewpoints - and as easily predicted, is alienating the left, disenfranchising the old legit left, and pushing the entire Overton window to the right. Meanwhile the traditional conservatives and alt-right are being alienated by the corporatized left - and this intentional political vice is squeezing our culture into a civil war of sorts, as intended.

As long as we are fighting each other we are not fighting the ruling class, their corrupt banks and media, or their evil matrix of rigged systems for full spectrum dominance for control/power over every aspect of our lives.

Similarly (on the topic of what these "-ism" words mean) here's what anarchism should mean:


  • Anarchism is not a system of giant corporations ruling society.

    eg big corporations like ABC, NBC, Ford, etc are constructs of government.

  • In anarchism the property systems of genocide & killing (eg killing the native americans so the 1% can own almost all the land) are not legitimate. Similarly, the basis of modern property in Europe is the mass killings where the very wealthy took the land from the public, this is not legitimate. It is an illegitimate distribution of land, where the few can profit essentially just from owning land.

    Instead (in anarchism) land is distributed in an egalitarian way, and thus there is no landless class forced to work for the land owning class. Workers would start their own businesses/co-ops on the land they personally use.

  • Anarchism is about ending violence that oppresses/exploits so we achieve a society where everyone is treated equally. But that does not mean "everyone has the same amount of stuff". There won't be totally equal social connections, work, or reward. There will be minor injustices/defects due to the randomness of birth and how society functions.

    However, without violent systems of oppression/exploitation, things will be massively more egalitarian than under the government of the billionaires & industrialists. Especially in terms of ownership of big properties like land & the means of production.

    (eg under anarchism everyone would own land, & thus almost every worker would own their means of production.)

  • Anarchism is not a system where the poor have no voice and the wealthy choose who is in power. No one should "be in power."

It's not mumbo-jumbo, so much as you've mixed it up. You've confused two distinct concepts.

"Cultural Marxism" is politically correct totalitarianism, manufactured justification to censor or worse.

The means of production is an entirely different matter. As for the workers owning it, SaidIt is not quite there but intends to decentralize at some point, much like Mastodon and PeerTube are federated.

It's my opinion that this staged Zizek/Peterson Marxism debate is a bland limited hangout distraction. If they were serious they'd invite Marxist economics professor Richard D. Wolff to discuss/debate them. Zizek/Peterson will remain ignorant cowards until they take up Wolff on his challenge.

I'm more akin to progressives Jimmy Dore and Kim Iversen.

Kim Iversen recently said we need a new word for progressive.

Damien Walter says aggressive progressives are cultural Marxists and the old left are liberals.

I may be a liberal but I'm no cultural Marxist nor social justice warrior.

I don't know enough about Damien Walter to know if he's playing a confusion game or not, and he seems to think these "aggressive progressives" have some legitimacy (IMO they don't and are manufactured puppets).

I'm as confused as they intended me to be.

I'll settle for being a left-leaning minarcho-truther SaidHead in favour of the Green Party, Internet Party, and Pirate Party.

I don't care about the Ism when it's too big because by the the little flaws have become big exploitable evils.

Worker coops are the next evolution so far as I can see, preferably small.

Yesterday I fell into https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributism with this /s/Religion/comments/dmj/the_distributist_political_black_ice_myth20c/ I despise religious dogma too, but I'm glad to know about this thing, new to me.

I'm glad you included the Bernie qualifier. ;-).

Edit:. Ralph Nader definitely qualifies as a social capitalist (Adam Smith economics, not the revisionist versions), although he hasnt claimed that. Socialism was already demonized, when he was young.

Anyone can have the name; the economic principles are the same.

Professor Wolff will support authentic Marxist socialism, or failing that, Bernie.

I totally expected him to talk trash.

It's unfortunate that Ralph Nader didn't receive this level of support the second time around...

"The Robin Hood Tax" is a tiny financial transaction tax on Wall Street (less than 0.5%) that could generate $300 billion annually. It will kickstart the economy by funding College For All, creating jobs, and strengthening public services like healthcare, education, and infrastructure at home... by JasonCarswell in Socialism

The "Hood Robin" tax system also exists. It a system that robs the poor to give to the wealthy.

It's the main pillar of our current tax system.

Yes, I agree. And this identity politics divides us from white males who, in primarily white countries, are the leaders and an important part of any revolution, any social movement. But attacking white males, attacking them just because they are white males, is a racist, sexist attack.

Not just the left (because basically the left-right divide is a divide and conquer scam) it is so ridiculous it's making the radical right seem more grounded to some people.

I believe that identity politics is just a scam used to divide the left. A capitalist trick.

On anarchist parenting and why it needn't be a hierarchy by siede in Socialism

I have a theory that the Wildlings from the series "Game of Thrones", are a trojan horse to plant the seed of virtuous anarchy into the mind of the public.

Especially, in contrast to the savagery of the monarch's.

I think that anarchism is an ethic against being separated from our ability to act (looking for critiques) by siede in Socialism

[–]Mnemonic 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

In simple political terms, this means avoiding political mediation - i.e. rather than relying on politicians and state structures outside of your immediate spaces to resolve your problems, you do it yourselves with those you have affinity with. It is a DIY ethic, and a do-it-ourselves ethic.

Like The Beer Hall Putsch? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_Hall_Putsch) [I only got the nazis in because the article does.]

An ethic is:

  • A set of principles of right conduct.

  • A theory or a system of moral values: "An ethic of service is at war with a craving for gain” ( Gregg Easter brook).

  • The study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person; moral philosophy.

Isn't anarchism by default depleted of morals (the anarchists obviously have at least some, not calling anarchists amoral or anything). Meaning the above definitions (for example 'the right way' isn't something) have no bearing in relation to anarchism?

Edit: Conclusion: Ethic might not be the right word.
