I unironically believe in communism (I'm a third worldist).

Communism is only as good as the community that adpots it. Unfortunatley most people are shit though, so communism always fails.

>>228605 Nah, people are only as good as the material conditions allow them to be. It's not a matter of making people "good" first, communism second, but the other way around.

Noob asking for Book

I want to read into communism as I have a big knowledge gap regarding it. I'm not solely interested in Communist theory, but even more so in a comparison of actual Socialist/Communist societies past and present*. How these societies transformed to Socialism/Communism, how the standard of living changed, and how Socialism/Communism perished again. Did the people stood behind their possibly authoritarian government? It's very important that the author(s) analyze this from an unbiased point of view and analyze unbiased primary sources. Can you recommend a good book? *From my noob perspective, "Socialism with Chinese characteristics" is Socialism just in name.. In the state controlled sector of economy, do the workers actually own the means of production?
Moscow Bernd 2022-10-23 22:41:02 ⋅ 7mn No. 235255
There aren't many societies to write about. The Paris Commune lasted too little and Marx himself covered it in "The Civil War in France". On history of the Soviet Union prior to like 1940s "The History of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks): Short Course" is a good read – bolsheviks had to analyze their history to keep on rolling. I have to mention that even in the USSR, if we take the criteria for Socialism from "The Critique of the Gotha Programme" – "single-mode" economy with no kolkhozes or other kinds of even collective private property and moneyless product exchange inside the country with the dictatorship of the proletariat –, Socialism was not achieved. After 1953 things go bullshit. I can send links to some materials my buddies have made on the class struggle, economy and politics in the USSR, but they are in Russian yet. In general, go read Marx and Engels first, then go for Lenin's and Stalin's works, they're good, just don't buy the Plekhanov's bullshit about "Marxist philosophy" – Marxism is a science.

Is Socialism with Chinese characteristics the way of the future?
Slovenia Bernd 2022-08-27 15:40:15 ⋅ 9mn No. 220581
>>220561 Exactly. Given that it is clear that China's shitholeness is a direct result of horrendous quality of its people, and that it is spilling over and destroying the entire world, the only way out is indeed a complete genocide of genetic scum called H*n. Everyone of quality has already fled to Taiwan 70 years ago, anyway.

Actually the defenition of communism is: a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

>>122406 Yes. From 8kanker they always had sour grapes about /pol/ controlling the spotlight but I think some of them are okay. I've browsed their board a bit, there's some decent content on it. Mods are very ban happy. Their memetics are very shallow and lend their ideas to mirroring a lot of ideas /pol/ created through idiocy or pure shenanigans, but their idea of fun involves an abundance of words and generally over constructed ideas. I met a tranng irl that thought everything should be filed through a marxist lens. It really bothered me. We're defiling ideas to inspire zero new creations, only stagnated old world thought to apply to modern problems because lolmarxsaidso.

/leftypol/ imo was I've been on 8chan /pol/ in september 2014 (yes even before the full goobergate ban on 4chan) and it was a surprisingly balanced group of fringes – lolberts, dork enlightenment, stormfags, and eventual /leftypol/ were pretty balanced. Were it not for that month, I would probably never have taken up posting on 8chan, and the insufferable avatar known as "slovborg" that developed on 8chan's /int/ board would not exist today. I would merely be another lurker that occasionally effortpoasts. Dork enlightenment got bullied off by low effort shitposting, and /leftypol/ surrendered and decided they want to have a safespace where their views can't be challenged. This was the turning point that cemented the political fate of 8/pol/. December mod selection which turned everything into a railroaded astroturf was just the final nail in the coffin. This is why I have a strongly negative opinion of /leftypol/. Their surrender and retreat into a safespace spelled the downfall of 8chan (and myself).
