Here’s saddamhusseins comment:

Israeli workers dont want to “keep the palestinian land” unless misguided by the israeli bourgeoisie through chauvinism, but its not in their interests. This is the problem with this “settler” bs, it often fails to define the class charachter of things, just an abstract notion of “land”.

You agree with that comment?


The difference: we don’t have to listen to sakai or parenti or any number of western leftists when it comes to china, something they have no familiarity with.

Taking “expertise” from chauvinist eurocommunist parties when it comes to imperialism and settler-colonialism, is like listening to a 3rd grader giving a physics lecture.


The french population was an extremely small and rich minority (in Algeria settlers were 10% population, while in USA they are 60% and in occupied Palestine they are 70% in Israel and 30% in the West Bank, totally different situation)

So what you’re saying is the french just needed to kill and evict more algerians, then you’d support them? Guess what the european population was of turtle island before they colonized it? 0%, imagine that!

begging them independence

So pushing for independence and the right of self-determination is “begging” now?

If native or palestinian were to rise up

They have been, and are. They aren’t asking for the continued existence of israel, or the US like dumbshit patsocs are. They are demanding the return of stolen land, and the return of sovereignty.


There you continue, using this “land” unmarxist term.

When you’re an Algerian FLN fighter trying to free your country and a french eurocommunist derides you for using the term land.


Wonderful comment comrade, you’ve hit the nail on the head. I was going to do my labor aristocracy post, but there’s no need.


These are the “vanguard” patsocs keep telling us about.

Money me. Me a money, needing a lot right now.


I also find it funny that I said “most MLs”, and you cited a bunch of eurocommunist parties lol. You realize communists are a miniscule population in those areas, and most MLs in the world don’t live in euroamerikkka right?


Thank you for this comrade, we can’t let these patsoc opportunists confuse the issue, and think that reactionary “patriots” can bring about socialism. If socialism ever does come to an imperial core country, it will be the mostly non-white, anti racist and unpatriotic city dwellers, for whom the state has done no favors, who bring it about.


You’ve just discovered the trash-fire of eurocommunism, congrats. A few imperial-core “communist parties” support patriotism, and are against land-back? Color me surprised!

I’ll read these later, but these eurocommunist stances aren’t surprising.

The two of these i’m most familiar with tho: joe sims is basically a democrat. He wrote an anti-stalin anticommunist article a few years back that was something I would’ve expected from a baby socdem.

The kke has some truly awful borderline anarchist stances on things. They consider russia imperialist for example.

Same with european countries, antiimperialism and proletarian patriotism go hand in hand.

You just keep repeating this while ignoring all our criticisms. European and US communist parties are not usually anything to look up to.


We’re kinda overdue for a patsoc purge IMO. I just got a comment from saddamhussein24 defending Israeli “workers” colonizing Palestine.


All MLs are patriotic, proletarian patriots.

Source? Most MLs adhere to proletarian internationalism, and the right of nations to self-determination, not “patriotism”.

Even CPUSA akcnowledges it, only maoist ultraleftists deny this.

I’m not in CPUSA, but iirc a few months back, luckily they dismissed a few patsocs. Its good to see them extricate themselves of opportunist notions of patriotism.

but isnt Sakai maoist

Not sure, I never got that inkling reading the book. He also wrote it a bit before MLM was synthesized, so I don’t think that applies. I remember reading an interview with him where he admires Mao, as we all do.

wouldnt make my gospel a guy who is so “materialist” he thinks China is capitalist and imperialist.

So did Parenti, western leftists having dogshit takes on China is nothing new, and is also no reason to dismiss their views on non-china topics.


“Israeli workers dont want to “keep the palestinian land”.”

This is nonsense. Land is land, of course they want to continue living there. Ask any Israeli settler if they’re willing to give up their land for free to a Palestinian.

LMFAO you just said that its false that “all workers have the same interests long term, socialism”.

Baby-level understanding of class, where there are only two groups, worker and capitalist, and no gradations or levels in between. I tried to illustrate that there are, with my house vs field slave example, which you could only ignore. But here, lets listen to what Lenin says on this:

For Lenin, superprofits derived from imperialism allow the globally predominant bourgeoisie to pay inflated wages to sections of the (international) proletariat, who thus derive a material stake in preserving the capitalist system:

In all the civilised, advanced countries the bourgeoisie rob—either by colonial oppression or by financially extracting “gain” from formally independent weak countries—they rob a population many times larger than that of “their own” country. This is the economic factor that enables the imperialist bourgeoisie to obtain super-profits, part of which is used to bribe the top section of the proletariat and convert it into a reformist, opportunist petty bourgeoisie that fears revolution.

If US white workers will always benefit from imperialism, why have living standards consistently gone down for them since Richard Nixon?

OECD workers make on average 11x more PPP-adjusted than non-OECD workers according to the ILO. US living standards, while having gone down from their peak post-WW2, is still incredibly better than almost every other country. We are at a level of global inequality that is absolutely indefensible, and to deny this imperialist arrangement, or even worse, suggest that US workers get more of the pie than they already consume, shows where your allegiances lie.

This is third worldism, this is maoist bs, this is not marxism wtf dude.

These are convoluted and overlapping terms, but no, it is not “mlm / maoist”, to deny the current imperialist arrangement of the world into rich exploiter countries, and poor surplus-value producing ones.

Thus, decolonization involves abolishing private property, taking the means of production (an actual marxist term, much better than this abstract classless notion of “land”) from the colonizer bourgeoisie, and redistributing them to the workers, both colonized and “settler”, while taking into account the damages caused by colonialism on the colonized, which the colonizer bourgeoisie will repay, not the workers.

This is the very definition of class collaborationism. Why on earth should the settler troops of Israel or the US continue to be rewarded with cheap land. When we say decolonization, we mean that truly, and not in an anarchisty “abolish property rights!” way: we mean stewardship and ownership of the land need to be returned to those it was stolen from, without demanding they institute any given economic system. Its theirs to do what they want.

Consider this a warning also: we allow some discourse around patriotism, but both you and @PolandIsAStateOfMind@lemmygrad.ml are risking bans if you continue to say shit like: “Israeli settlers should be given land”.



Its the best US history book, no wonder you haven’t read it, and are a patsoc.



Let the ridicule of anti-indigenous settlerism commence.

Society can have a little cow rape, as a treat.


USSR was not an imperial core country, it was mostly feudal. GDR is an interesting case, because its the only case in history of a capitalist -> socialist transition. But it only went through that because of its proximity to the USSR, and because the USSR forced through de-nazification.


Keep in mind that when saying “descendents of settlers”, you are essentially invoking the “finders keepers” rule. You can do anything, even genocide hundreds of tribes, then wait long enough, and it becomes okay.


Most indigenous eviction happened less than 200 years ago. And those people are still fighting the US government for return of land.

they are just trying to survive amid the low wages

So were poor proles from europe, that is not an excuse to genocide a people and steal their land.

When white workers go on strike, what do you do as bourgeois?

You hire them as overseers of slave plantations, or into the management layers, in a position above black, indigenous and latino workers. This strategy worked and is the cornerstone of US history. Social bribery and absorption of white workers into an oppressing labor aristocracy is thesis of both Sakai and Zinn, both of whom wrote the most popular left books on US history.

Long term, all workers have same interest, socialist revolution.

Also false, production has long been exported to low-wage countries, forming a global division of labor where imperial core “workers” are mostly in the service and transportation sectors, while global south proletarians are the ones actually engaged in productive labor, creating consumer products. That difference in the huge amounts of surplus value extracted from global south workers is the reason goods and so cheap in the US. US workers are entirely dependent on this arrangement, and imperialism is 100% in their interests.

Things are not as simple as “wage work = proletarian”. US workers are more akin to the house slaves on a plantation, not producing exchange values, but only use values, living off the surplus value created by a much larger population of field slaves. The goal of the house slaves is to preserve the system, and their priviledged position; the goal of the field slaves is to burn down the plantation.

Israeli and palestinian workers all have the same interests long term.

Entirely false: Israeli “workers” ( we should really say civilians to be more precise ), want to keep the land their government stole from Palestine. Palestinians want the return of that land. This is a zero sum game, and those lands should be returned to their rightful owners; Israeli’s have no right to that land.

Your response is essentially the finders keepers rule of land theft, where the existing survivors are told “tough shit”, when demanding that their land be returned to them. Interestingly I had to go through Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s crap recently, and in one of her rulings she 100% agrees with you: too much time has passed for land to be returned to its rightful owners, and the white settlers get to keep it.
