Politcal debate works when you have differing views on how to accomplish the same task. The problem has become that no-one agrees on what that task is anymore making it hard to put forward good faith arguments for your perspective.

There was still a legitimate argument to be made that it functioned as a containment board, and now that it's gone, it's hangers-on have metastasized into the rest of the chan. I think that's why this board has gone in the pooper over the past month or so since the nuking.

I think the political climate around the world just changed drastically. All of your socialists and liberals are now disgruntled and flirting with communism or anarchism, and the other side is basically having an all out orgy with fascism.

Places like the future view 420chan as a hotbed for scum. They were basically coming here threatening people, laughing at murder, ect. To "fight cultural Marxism". Stormfront is also still butthurt about this place.

You realize the right does exactly that, though, right? Because what you described is a tendency that's a feature of every political formation, and in today's world it's particularly true of the right, not the left, although the tendency has not disappeared for the left either. it's just less pronounced.

In a sense that they won and might makes right? The person you're responding to ironically shows a lack of understanding historically while bashing the general, "left" for doing the same thing. Most of the far right have connections to some of the most powerful propaganda mechanisms and PR machines on planet earth. They have a history of supporting repressive forces and almost always side with authoritarianism (as do liberals, who are right wing).

Karl Marx and Adam Smith had some of the same words from different perspectives, yet most of the American intellectual right have no interest in this truth. Their agenda relies entirely upon people understanding Marx as some Soviet figure rather than someone who had a lot of theories that weren't as radical as people believe.

Conversing with the right is odd because they worship capital to the point where their world view is warped so hard it cant admit the basic function of the current economy. They have a hard time accepting that a good chunk of people who contributed to "human liberty" and advancement of thought hold ideas completely counter to the systems they worshipped. So instead they hijack words like liberty for themselves. There's a reason in Spain or France libertarian means anarchist not right wing business owner, suit and tie who votes Rand Paul to lower taxes. Yes, not everyone who opposed capitalism in history were Bolshevik jackboots. They are a small minority of over billions. Get over it. Stop claiming Orwell as an argument for capitalism, he hated capitalism just like Jack London.

It's been a long time since I've read up on Marx' theories, but didn't Marx present his theories as simply predictions of the future based on his economic philosophies instead of political guidelines?

I vaguely remember getting very strong "if this continues, forces within society will make X happen" vibes opposed to the "this is a problem, we must make X happen" vibes you find in political works.

Yeah, he basically said the same things as Adam Smith but from a standpoint where the world was becoming more despotic economically and socially. Adam Smith said you need a state in unequal economies to maintain it, the only difference when Marx said it he said it with disdain rather than with hope for the future.

I'm not even some huge Marx fan, but Adam Smith said perfect markets would lead to perfect liberty. Marx said the whirlwind of capital will be unleashed against humanity so fiercly and self sustaining that not even its proponents would-be able to stop how quickly its logic and structure dominates the world and management of resources. Well look at the situation around yourself and ask, was Marx wrong about capitalism? Seems like Smith was. Of all the things "anti-capitalists" have gotten wrong in history it sure as fuck wasn't "capitalism is the most efficient development of authoritarianism".

Just some quotes from Marx.

"Freeman and slave, patrician and plebian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word oppressor and oppressed."

Wow..some scary stuff there! Lol. Like I said dude wasn't right about a lot of things but he hits the money on observing the development of capital and how it relates to people around them. The thing these rightists dont want to admit though is Marx is one of hundreds before and billions after who have critiqued capitalism. Not to mention all the thinkers who saw it as authoritarian too. It's much easier to think communism began from a shady figure named Marx's call to arms.

well I think Marx is the reason so many arguments against communism is ad hominem. Too many people can't separate the person from the idea. They say "Marx was racist so therefore communism is wrong". Obviously the only real way to a have an argument about communism or capitalism is to blank out the names of the people who spoke of them and make everyone anonymous so people actually talk about the logic and not the person whom they have an emotional attachment to. My point is that people should speak of idea itself and disregard the person behind those ideas, so as to form an objective critique. Otherwise you end up saying "Hitler says 1+1=2, but since I hate that guy and he is wrong, therefore 1+1=3"

I get what you're saying but I think the political climate of one of the most widespread and intense panics and witchhunts over a movement has a lasting impact on the culture. The authorities made sure to root out any sense of resistance to the economic powers through very deep networks and webs of action. A HS student in France and Italy might read about socialism, it's tenants, thinkers. Only private school kids or (colleges) get to that level in the USA. It's more exclusive. They've eradicated and made sure that even hypothetical or passive resistance to the logic of capitalism was pushed into a corner,well out of the realm of view. Not only this but they've deported commies and anarchists in history and have flat out murdered them and framed them in the 70s.

Basically,they have a really tight grasp on people's hearts and minds in america. That grasp is starting to grab tighter because people are questioning everything once again. I questioned it as hyperbole at first but we truly do live under pure fascism in the USA.

No. Marx and Engels were committed, politically active lifelong revolutionaries. In all honesty I’m sort of baffled as to how you could have arrived at this conclusion. It’s true that Marx wrote scientific examinations of political economy, not polemics about how capitalism was mean and unjust, but he did so because he believed this would give the worker’s movement the theoretical tools to overthrow bourgeois class rule.

Scientific communism—that is, revolutionary communism actually capable of analyzing the nature of capital and class rule, capable of seizing state power—did in fact begin with Karl Marx. The socialists before him, like Saint-Simon and Richard Owen, were Utopians.

Man, that's some Orwell level shit and sounds flat out horrible. How come I have never heard any of this stuff though? My first reaction to hearing stuff like this is that it is some sort of conspiracy theory, because I just couldn't believe authorities would ever sink that low or they would not be able to do this unnoticed and get away with it.

Its called the Immigration Act of 1918. Also the 1886 Haymarket Martyrs, eight anarchists hanged for their beliefs, not their actions, the judge even said so. Later the McCarthy witchhunts in the 50s began with the Red Scare under Truman, targeting people for their beliefs. More recently there was the Green Scare in the late 90s onward (Operation Backfire, Who Bombed Judi Bari?), expanding to other activism with laws like the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act and more recently the proposed Preventing Economic Terrorism Act, as well as Grand Juries used to compel people to share information or get prison time without charges, used against animal liberation activists in the 90s, against anarchists in the Pacific NW and New York in 2012, and recently in North Carolina.

As are everyone's. How many of us read call of the wild in HS yet never heard quotes like this from jack london? "The women of the streets and the man of the gutter drew very close to me. I saw the picture of the social pit as vividly as though it were a concrete thing, and at the bottom of the Pit I saw them, myself above them, not far, and hanging on to the slippery wall by main strength and sweat. And I confess a terror seized me. What when my strength failed" when I should be unable to work shoulder to shoulder with the strong men who were babes unborn""

and someone said, how we oppressed people is apart of the curriculum? they teach people with more privilege in this country about things like marx,who really killed mlk,in depth histories of policing, slavery, immigration, the political ideologies stifled by our own country. A normal and poor person usually has to put themselves in some kind of schooling debt to find these curricular lists, or read books. In private high schools kids might even be taught about socialism a little more. meanwhile in normal public schools books are outdated, and they spend money on metal detectors and random cops searching (in my day, for drugs, but now probably for drugs, shooters, and terrorists).

But the thing that I saw in your face
No power can disinherit:
No bomb that ever burst
Shatters the crystal spirit.

Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War in the POUM militia (Workers' Party of Marxist Unification) and wrote a book about it: Homage to Catalonia. He joined POUM out of coincidence and later said he'd rather have joined the anarchist militias if he'd known the contexts of the political conflict going on behind the battle lines. Orwell's beliefs can be described as libertarian socialist, as he partly, but didn't fully subscribe to an anarchist programme which is generally the rejection of the State and parliamentarianism, the utilization of direct action, and the advocacy of co-operative and federal organization.

In the first half of the 1930s Orwell had a negative view of anarchist beliefs, from Anarchist Seeds Beneath the Snow:
>for he complained that for an ‘ordinary man, a crank meant a Socialist and a Socialist meant a crank’: ‘One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist and feminist in England.’ While few anarchists would have been all, still fewer would have satisfied none of these despised categories. He told the working-class Jack Common, now co-editor of the Adelphi, in 1936 that so many of the socialist bourgeoisie ‘are the sort of eunuch type with a vegetarian smell who go about spreading sweetness and light and have at the back of their minds a vision of the working class all TT [teetotal], well washed behind the ears, readers of Edward Carpenter or some other pious sodomite and talking with BBC accents’. Orwell’s distaste for homosexuals was an abiding characteristic, with him castigating in private ‘the pansy left’, the ‘fashionable pansies’, Auden and Spender, being singled out for especial contempt. Yet he insisted, as usual unpredictable and unfailingly contradictory, that he had ‘always been very pro-Wilde’.

In 1936 he collected material on the condition of unemployed for the book: The Road to Wigan Pier, which proved revelatory for him, and when he began to believe in and support socialism as the only possible course for any decent person to work towards.

>The fundamentals of Orwell’s socialism were justice, liberty and decency.
For him socialism meant ‘justice and common decency’, a decency inherent in the culture of the traditional working-class community. He believed that ‘the only thing for which we can combine is the underlying ideal of Socialism; justice and liberty’ [sic]; and concluded: ‘All that is needed is to hammer two facts home into the public consciousness. One, that the interests of all exploited people are the same; the other, that Socialism is compatible with common decency.’

Orwell returned from Spain a different man and with a firm belief in Socialism. Even more decisive was his negative experience with the machinations of international Communism. The working-class revolution was crushed after the May Days there, his comrades from POUM were imprisoned, and he was lucky to escape with his life:
>It was during the winter of 1936–7 that the Spanish Communist Party – a
minuscule, unimportant organization at the beginning of the year – was able to extend its influence dramatically, largely since, on account of the adhesion of the liberal democracies to the policy of non-intervention, Republican Spain was obliged to depend on Russian arms supplies and advisors. As early as September 1936 a Soviet agent had been detailed to Spain to establish the NKVD, the political police. From her first visit Goldman abhorred the Communist presence in the Popular Front and the lionization of the USSR (even in revolutionary Barcelona); and she warned ceaselessly against the mushroom growth in Spain of Stalinist power.

>The crisis came in the May Days of 1937. Fighting erupted in Barcelona from 3
May between, on the one hand, the CNT-FAI rank and file and the dissident Marxist POUM and, on the other, the Communist-controlled Assault Guards, leaving five hundred killed and over a thousand wounded. It was suppressed by 7 May with the dispatch of troops by the Popular Front government (now in Valencia). As a result of the May Days, Largo Caballero was overthrown; the CNT left the Valencia government (although it was to re-enter in March 1938); Juan Negrín became prime minister; and Communist influence was very considerably increased. There were even more far-reaching consequences: the Communists proceeded to liquidate the POUM (with whom Orwell had fought); anarcho-syndicalist supremacy in Catalonia was broken; and the social revolution was reversed everywhere with the dismantling of the collectives.

Orwell contrasted the anarchists and Communists as poles apart philosophically, saying the Communist's emphasis is always on centralism and efficiency, the Anarchist's on liberty and equality. In a letter a year before his death Orwell maintained that the real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.

Because of Homage to Catalonia's anti-communist stance Orwell's publisher turned it down, so a different publisher picked it up, but it made less than 1,500 sales and was remaindered after his death in 1950. Also the New Statesman rejected a commissioned book review of two books on Spain in which he had stated: "The most important fact that has emerged from the whole business is that the Communist Party is now... an anti-revolutionary force." The origins of Animal Farm are to be found in counter-revolutionary Barcelona.

What really happened was people that go to sad-chan found this website and simply posted the vile they tend to post elsewhere. That vile isn't welcome here, so the bans were more than justified. The posts, over 90% of the time, went into the quackery and race baiting garbage you'd expect from orange-chan.

So because we had a political board with the same exact tagname from orange-chan, it often tended towards attracting their ilk and then they would spill over to the rest of the site. It was attracting alt-right/lite nutjobs; They didn't like getting banned so they took out their grief on the rest of the site.

Yeah, as has been said many times ITT, faggots from the future and cripplechan mistakenly believe that all chan's will put up with their shit.

Most people don't actually have the kind of cognitive dissonance required to waste hours on end watching anime, playing video games and beating it to traps and tentacle porn while at the same time believing they have some moral conservative high ground.

I never let it get to me though. It's awful rich being called a "degenerate" for being bi and doing drugs by someone who never went to college, lives with their parents at age 25, masturbates 5 times a day and pisses in bottles.

"In a real fourth Reich you'll be the first to go" and all that.
