Why do you think that’s the alt?


I know they took it from Hunger Games, whatever (it’s still cringe as fuck), but that’s also how Germans make the 3 instead of using your thumb, index and middle finger, like Anglos do, so I don’t know…

Bro the English of this little girl is fucking flawless, what an accomplishment for her age. Long live Song A.


Honestly, that’s just how people in the US are, or that’s how I think they are, since I don’t live there, it’s not like in other countries is far better, but at least not so rampantly voracious and neoliberal as in there. If you ever can, move the hell out of that country.

You are not crazy, they are brainwashed and alienated.


Can’t they take down your archive if you upload it there?



Yes, of course, I wasn’t saying you were doing that, just used it as an example.




Of course I do, most of the people with whom I interact AFK are, sadly, either racist, or classists, or homophobes or misogynous, but I think there’s a difference in a place where one cannot control its environment and where one is forced to coexist with those people, to one where you can grow a community where you can choose what kind of people will it host. Most people are unconsciously either one of those things, I’ve seen a lot of classist people on the Lemmy flagship instance that hold those views thanks to the veil of liberalism. It’s your instance and you can moderate it however you want, but I think a good starting point to have a well mannered community would be to impose a certain limit. Is using slurs something that really is going to generate an environment where two political distant people can hold a conversation? This is an example, it could be anything.

Regarding the last part you said, and since you are federating with out Marxist Leninist instance, I’d like to share with you a little bit of Marxist theory. Where you say “international banks are destroying nations and holding them hostage in financial ruin”, I’d argue you are right about that, but that you are missing the forest for the tree. We have gotten to the conclusion, thanks to multiple advances in philosophy, economy, history, etc, that the classes in a society are determined by their relations to the means of production, this was true for masters and slaves, feudal lords and serfs, capitalists and wage workers. Hitler’s idea of the bankers as an organized class composed specifically of Jews, holds no real solid ground, and it is just one of a myriad of ways in which the capitalist class can manifest itself. It happens in the tech industry, it happens with oil, it happens with food companies, and so on; they form oligopolies. There’s a text by Engels titled The Principles of Communism, which is a very short read, and through points 1 to 10 (maybe it’ll take you 15 minutes to read), he goes about what defined the multiple classes throughout history when it comes to their relation with the means of production which maybe can help you to understand what I’m trying to say a bit better.

Anyway, I hope you can build a community that allows to respect others.


Well, if you are going to allow for racists people and those people are going to be visible from this side, probably yes, you are going to be banned.



Don’t worry, and thanks again for your help!



What do you mean by shared memory? I’m completely new to self hosting, this would be my first attempt.


How many users do you think this machine can handle? I think I will not be running the Matrix instance and focus on the Lemmy one which would be public but I don’t expect it to have more than 5000 users for at least 5 years, and the private tracker would probably have something of about 500 users.

Regarding the power consumption do you think having a good power supply could improve this? At this moment I can’t buy a Pi, so I will have to stick with this.


Hey, that fucked up farther my setup since it took me to the PSX menu, it seems that (v1.0) part was important, but I managed to figure it out thanks to nemesis’ comment. Thank you anyway, though!


By unpause do you mean I have to pause before ejecting the disc? Is this a emulator pause or an in game pause? I’m going to try this, though.

Edit: Okay, so yeah, I had to pause the game from the emulator for it to work apparently. Thank you very much!


Problems with Retroarch’s disk swapping
So, I'm playing Metal Gear Solid and it has 2 disks, I got to the end of disk 1, and well... First I tried with the `Disk Control>>Load New Disk` which is a legacy feature apparently so well, it didn't work. Okay, so I search and there's some `.m3u` thing, I watch a video, pretty simple all in all. I get all my files in one folder and inside that folder I get the `.m3u` file which inside contains all the name of the `.cue` files. I boot, try with this new method, nothing. What do I do? ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/09ee1286-4524-4894-a5b5-fbd28269641f.png)


I assume The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir is a must, but I haven’t read it. It’s a complicated read as far as I know.

I think that the Scripting the Change: Selected Writings of Anuradha Ghandy may have some good stuff.

Some of the books by her also seem pretty interesting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chizuko_Ueno

Also this one by Angela Davis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women,_Race_and_Class

This article by Eleanor Marx also seems promising and it’s short: https://www.marxists.org/archive/eleanor-marx/works/womanq.htm

And while she is not a Marxist Shulamith Firestone’s The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution seems interesting there may be some bad takes, but I think nevertheless you’ll find good stuff.

IMO, while of course reading Marxist Feminist works is important, you need to read radical feminism anyways because there are interesting takes here and there and that’s where most of the writings are.


We had a Facebook group when I was a teenager with a lot of people from Latinamerica called Nhóm không có tên (Group without name in Vietnamese), there were a lot of people there but there were a couple of communists (not MLs), I started radicalizing there since I also started reading and doing drugs at 15, which took me farther left. Then for some years I kind of stayed in the same place of not a very defined communist ideology, until I arrived at Lemmy and started seeing Lemmygrad, which transformed me into a Marxist Leninist, plus a friend was also one.


Can I run any of the following with this PC?
So I upgraded my PC a bit last year which ended up in my having 2 now since I went for an AMD and I have some spare cabinets and RAMs. Well, thing is, my other machine has these specs: ``` Motherboard: MSI H110M PRO-VH PLUS Processor: Intel Pentium G4560 3.50 GHz Cabinet: Sentey Slim SS1-2426 Hard Drive: I think it is a Seagate 1TB RAM Memory: Kingston Fury Beast DDR4 KF432C16BB/8 ``` I would like to run any of the following, multiple if possible: - A Lemmy instance - A private tracker - A Matrix instance So what do you say? Is it good enough for any of this shit or is it a piece of junk? I've been using it to play video games but with another 8gb of ram and it worked okay-ish.

I dunno I don’t feel like they write in a similar fashion to Resist, IMO it’s someone else, although you made me think it’s totally possible that someone commented “It’s me!!” as a joke in order to disguise they being the alt.


I honestly do not care much about it but I think it could get some people here through some other common tastes. AFAIK, @HiddenLayer5@lemmy.ml is a furry or I think he said he was, so that would be a good start, but I don’t know.


Huh, I said you were dumb for the other day question but I can’t find how to block a community now. Even Steven I guess.


Ah, then I stay calm, since that’s the only thing that guarantees my wage is more or less useful.


I’m being paid in dollars this year so I hope it lasts till the end of the year tho, but yeah



Their first game, Superbrothers, is a really good work, I’m really looking forward to play this.



Well, I’d say it’s still a Lemmy issue, you shouldn’t have to use the ESR version for it to work properly, but yeah.


I also found another bug, if you’re writing a comment and someone comments, it deletes what you’re writing. I’m going to try to fill in issues for these two things this week.


First one looks like H.R. Geiger’s Biden, and the last ones look like In the Court of the Crimson King’s cover art.

Is this too hard to set up? I’d like for an improved version of my profile pic but not with better resolution (although that would be better than nothing), but like a combination between Che Guevara and Big Boss.


I’m trying after a reboot to see what happens. Test.

Still not working, I’m also on Firefox.


Nope, which I don’t know if it’s a good idea, but one could try, I guess. I am not in charge of it, though, you should ask over at Matrix/Discord and see what they think.


Now I can’t see my comment until I refresh the post I’m in, is this expected behaviour?



I went outside and started telling the grass how much I love Stalin but it wasn’t the same as doing it here.


There’s nothing like being in the middle of two street with the car noises so loud you can’t even hear your friends and you have to smell the odour CO2 and tires burned by friction.




SyntheticStardust seems like it is asking too obvious on purpose questions and it is a new account soI call it suss. I’m thinking it may be Disco Elysium or Victoria 3 but who knows.


Is there a .svg with Lemmygrad’s rabbity-squirrel-rat-mouse-gerbal thingamabob?
I want to create a .svg for the Lemmygrad flag and it would be quite helpful.


How the hell do I make Retroarch work?
cross-posted from: https://lemmygrad.ml/post/498752 > I've downloaded the cores, but when I choose my folder it simply doesn't read my roms, I've tried the Steam version, the .deb version, multiple Linux flavours, it just doesn't want to work. It looks like a really nice piece of software but it refuses to let me play.

First day of work; fuck the USA
Well, so basically I got a job as an "interpreter". I work for a Venezuelan company that it's outsourced by a Mexican company that's in turn outsourced by a US company. I basically have to translate what Latin people say to some gringos and vice versa. The pay us breadcrumbs, but since the Argentinian economy is so fucked up, and they pay us in USD we kind of have a good salary. But in reality it doesn't meet the criteria for even the cheapest US wage in any state. People from the US are the worst kind of shit, honestly, they don't give a single fuck about you, as far as they can tell I'm a poorly working computer that translates whatever their filthy mouths have to say. Some people are nice, yeah, but others are just fucking bastards. What's worst is that since English is such a shitty language I have to be fucking understanding whatever foreign name these people have, so like they maybe have an African name, or French, or I don't fucking know, but it's never a John, Jessica or whatever English name, and since there's English doesn't have pronunciation rule that's very constant and also their names may be misspells of the original intended name I'm the fucking asshole for not understanding your name? For fuck's sake. Oh, and that's not all. Guess what, in fucking burgerland microphones must be really expensive, because it seems that every fucking one of them has connected a scientific calculator and used it as a fucking microphone. It's filled with static, low quality signal, background noise, people screaming, and I DON'T FUCKING GET WHAT YOU'RE SAYING AND IT'S MY FAULT? With the money you save by hiring a third world Latino why the fuck don't you fucking buy a decent microphone you piece of shit.



Help with Python
So I'm trying to make a list of numbers that are multiples of 3, this is my code: ``` multiples_of_3 = [] for value in range(3, 31): number = value % 3 == 0 multiples_of_3.append(number) print(multiples_of_3) ``` But it transforms the results into booleans, which throws me a list with false and trues instead of numbers, what I'm doing wrong? I know comprehension lists exist and that this could be done more efficiently but well, I'm trying to learn and writing it as a comprehension list doesn't make it easier.

Marx’s Mathematical Manuscripts - Help understanding derivatives
So I found out about Marx' mathematical manuscripts, so I say "Hey, I've been studying mathematics this year at university. I understand limits and derivatives, maybe I can understand something of that gibberish." So I see the titles and the one called "On the Concept of the Derived Function", I go there and I see some notation I don't understand, he speaks about things I'm not clearly understanding, so maybe some of you could make it clear. For example: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/dc55b0cc-cb89-4613-a1cd-a2d5fb78e8df.png) Why is this x sub 1 notation? Is this some other way to write derivatives? Because on the footnotes it says this: > 2. In order to avoid confusion with the designation of derivatives, Marx’s notation x´, y´, ... for the new values of the variable has been replaced here and in all similar cases by x1, y1, ... Then I saw a talk about Marx's mathematics and the infinitesimal and some of that stuff, but the one who was speaking didn't went much into the mathematical part but was more like a history talk on how the Chinese were interested in the propositions of Marx because it liberated calculus from the idealist veil with which it was conceived by Leibniz and Newton, but the one who was talking mentioned Marx learning mathematics with whatever he had around and didn't managed to read Cauchy so we was like "Yeah this is nice but it's al shit now we have proved it fully works." But well, he seems a bit biased, since he's a Usonian, so maybe Marx's writings are still relevant, I don't even know who the fuck Cauchy is, so yeah, help.

Okay, so everyone liked this one the better, but there's still a few issues to resolve, since there's some disagreements over a few small details. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/d2b4e423-0269-4a49-bfb6-22e932659d96.png) Most liked design so far. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/0a94da72-38ff-4a04-ba69-446bb708ca2c.png) Version with a slight lighter blue. Regarding this flag, the main complaints where the golden lines, I will leave three comments so you can up vote them to see which one is the one who most people want. The options will be, the lines remains as they are, we make them bigger, or me remove them completely. Then another complaint was that people wanted a more asymmetrical option, so someone came up with a design which I used to produce these options. Let me know what you think of these new ideas, or if we should stick to the blue one. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/835a3df5-0b2a-4c21-8ee0-9fe024b3eff6.png) With blue lines things. ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/e8f9dc86-37b3-46fd-a027-7461199a5cef.png) Without them. In this new design the star is kind of a must because the way the mouse rabbit gerbil thingamabob is designed it can't properly fit in the centre and it leaves a pretty big space above its head. By the way, before people start asking, I don't have the slightest idea of symbology or whatever, I don't have any idea on design, so feel free to propose symbolism or correct any mistakes I did on design.

From Absolute Rest to Motion
I am reading the Anti-Dühring by Engels, in it he proves the false arguments of the person who the book is named after. Engels goes from a varied array of subjects from philosophy, to biology, chemistry, physics, and so on. At some point, Engels, while correcting Dühring, speaks about the theories of the beginning of existence and points out that Dühring is a supporter of creationism, e.i.: that there was a point where there was only nothing (absolute rest) and that out of this nothing, something came to be (motion). The only logical conclusion to an outlook like the one proposed is the existence of a God, which Düring rejects. My question would be as following, what is the Marxist take on this, because if we assume the previous mentioned, we need to either accept the existence of God, or to believe there is some sort of unknown scientific law that allows the creation of motion out of absolute rest. Both seem very unlikely. A third option is that time and matter have always existed since infinity, and that they will keep on existing until infinity. Which is the option that makes the most sense from the point of view of dialectical materialism. From my understanding, though, neither of these three theories can be understood as "bad infinities" (in the Hegelian jargon), since they do not represent a contradiction in itself. Do we have scientific proof that further discredits any of these three possibilities?

I have it set so that only people with a link can talk to it, so that liberals do not start feeding it shit, I know some database is shared between different characters but I don't know exactly how that works. I just saw some other Karl Marx AI that says it's "Anti-Stalinist" so I figured to create one with a Marxist Leninist perspective. I've already started telling it that China is socialist, lol.




A friend has a Karagara account, do you know of any obscure film?
So a friend has managed to get a Karagara account, for those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically the holy grail of art cinema, where you can get the weirdest and obscurest of films you could ever imagine. So basically, if you know of any film that is Marxist, communist, socialist, or political in some left leaning form that you'd like to get and which can't be gotten through public trackers, I can get them and share them with you all on a different place so we can have a back up. I don't want this post to be here for too long because this actually goes against the tracker rules, so once you have gave me a list I will delete the post.
