@felipeforte@lemmygrad.ml Reading rn.

I’ll probably be up for an hour or two more; we can maybe talk about this in the Matrix Room.

You’re right.

Clicking the link rn.

And yes, that’s pretty much what I mean (what you clarified, more precisely).

I mean: are you the actual Invent The Future account that I see sometimes on Twitter and has their own website, or do you just happen to have that name.

Sorry if I still worded the question weird.


Equality for females is a Marxist idea developed in the 19th century.

Where has this been all my life!?

Okay, I’ll definitely explore and check it out more.

What exactly is socialist realism? Are there any sources written from a communist perspective on it?

All I’ve seen are negative stuff on it, at least from what I remember, last time I checked…

Could be more of a tactical retreat, but it is telling.

I wouldn’t say that. The USA will last for a long time yet, but it’ll be a slow death; good for us, but we need to brace for the long haul as this is a marathon, not a sprint. Take action now, but brace for the long haul.

Scholarly journals can be both good and bad. I’d be careful with making sweeping generalizations (not that you or the article did, of course), but I think more people should read academic journals and get acquainted with them, even some of the bad ones (but mostly the good or great ones, of course).


I think Jacobin is okay for certain articles, but when it comes to foreign policy, they fall short… I mean, I’ve seen some of the garbage on foreign policy issues; it isn’t pretty.

Long live the CPC… in Canada.

I hope that the CP in Canada takes charge on this issue


The problem is Gonzalo’s Maoism and Internet communism; all the SolidNet parties are for China. All the activists who are Marxist that are actually organizing are for China. Frankly, I think it’s mainly the social media Marxist-Leninists on places like Reddit and so on that treat this like a debate.

The problem is that Marxist-Leninists should be sectarian… against Maoists and New Left ideas.

Sectarianism only applies to the communist movement; we shouldn’t consider Maoists to be apart of the international communist movement.


Frankly, it’s an idea, but I’m not 100% sure on how it is to be handled, if at all. But every time a communsit Internet space stresses being “anti-sectarian” it results in Maoists eventually taking it over. I saw this happen at least three times and heard about occasions were Maoists affected the bent of the community, all in the name of “anti-sectarianism.”

@muad_dibber@lemmygrad.ml can give you the rundown, I suppose, about the Maoist mods on /r/com.

No, but it is a good thing, if only a small victory.

Anyone in to classical at all? Listen to it from time to time? I’m getting into jazz, but apparently, classical was greatly admired in the Soviet Union and it’s played a lot in China today…

Okay, so, I used to read WSWS. Now, I hate them. Even so, this annoys me, even though I shouldn’t expect anything more from the Washington Post in terms of integrity and morality…

What can you tell me about Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen?

She apparently influenced China’s poverty alleviation policy. …

What are good Soviet/Chinese/AES films to watch?

I’m watching Solaris, dir. by Andrei Tarkovsky right now. …

I'm reading The Spectre of War: International Communism and the Origins of World War II (Princeton Studies in International History and Politics, 184) by Jonathan Haslam

And it basically says what communists have said all this time: Great Britain used Nazi Germany has a buffer to the Soviet Union and found them preferable to work with than the Soviets themselves. …

Click link before it expires; should be good for 7 days. …


Top 10 NEW Games of August 2021

Okay, I’ll stop with the video game YT videos…

Skyward Sword HD is Fantastic

I’m getting this. …

Watch Three Kingdoms (2010) TV show on YouTube

Then you’ll get to know the context behind Cao Cao’s laugh. …

How many here have completed Das Kapital?

I am half-way through Volume 1; great read so far…

Quora has a thriving Marxist-Leninist community...

Don’t be fooled by the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism name; it is primarily for Marxist-Leninists. There are other communities just like it too…
