The West is doing everything it can to see actual evil Russians after Putin is gone from Kremlin, and they will pray for him to be back. That’s all I’m gonna say about this…

No it isn’t. Redflagperson over there told you to read theory until you get that capitalist multipolarity is ebil.

On a more serious note, if someone is making an argument from Lenin, let alone without a quote, that’s cause for skepticism. Vladimir Ilyich wrote A LOT and quoting him willy-nilly without consideration for historical context is not a great idea.

The fact it was more difficult doesn’t help the failures, really. Post-soviet national conflicts didn’t just happen out of the blue. Karabakh flared up when the Union was formally still there even.

But, WPK might not be a great comparison here, ok. CPC did better too though, and China isn’t mono national.

Comrades…why must you remind me of this cosmopolitan librul scum. I always blissfully forget about him until a post with his mug pops up here=)

Oh boy, all the “but muh FAIR elections” copium in the comments is so delicious.

Yeah, elections from one candidate. Elections of representatives for all sorts of committees are like that too, as far as I know. What these fuckers don’t know is that this simply doesn’t work like librul elections. The “candidate” has already been elected by peers by then,the “elections” just formalize it, and people can vote against.

While I have my own tendencies which are, as far as I can tell, closest to ML, I don’t feel like I can afford to discredit or discount any particular tendency. ML worked for establishing the USSR, MLM worked for China, Castroism for Cuba, Ho Chi Mihn thought for Vietnam, etc.

They’re all ML though. The word “leninism” isn’t there because it was a particular regime with a particular leader, but because it’s theory born of practice, where Marx was all theory (and pointed out, to his credit, that practice will change the theory) and CPSU’s revolutionary experience proved , well, a lot of things, but most of all the importance of a vanguard party and consideration for national specifics when applying Marxism to material conditions of a particular country. Revolutionary theory doesn’t get much more complete than ML without actually becoming nation-specific.

That’s why you’ll find both references to ML in works of Mao, Ho Chi Mihn, Kim Il-sung and Kastro as well as acknowledgment of them taking a lot of notes. Application was different both because of the national specifics part (as it should’ve been) and in how successful it was (for example, CPSU fucked up a lot with national question and WPK passed that part with flying colors).

Contributions to Marxist thought are a separate thing. Kim Il-sung’s works are quite popular with Russian ML’s for example (guess why, considering what I already wrote=) and the only Marxist thinkers that get discounted by MLs are the ones whose theory very obviously sucks and doesn’t pass attempts at application, like Trots. As a matter of fact, I think breeding too many -isms is a disservice to ourselves. Just look at Maoism/Mao Zedong Thought confusion.

Feels too “gatekeepy” or “no true Scotsman”-esque.

It needs not to be either with ML though? It’s a specific ideology with philosophical footing in diamat, we are not talking about favourite food here nor do we have to engage in postmodern “what is X really” bullshit. I guess, when we broaden that to “communists” that’s more fair, but succdems and anarchists can self-identify as reincarnations of Marx for all I care, they’re misguided at best and are unknowingly helping the capitalists at worst.

My basis is seeing this stuff from inside the country. CPRF is a pocket opposition party with some based low level personnel.

who actually imprisons communists in his country on the reg

Well, I don’t know about that one, most of the “communists” who end up in prisons are CPRF and nazbols (MLs don’t have an organization worth opressing, unfortunately, and the only one I can think of in recent memory is a unionist Kirill Ukraintsev), but Putin sure is no communist, yes.

P.S. Oh, and trots started running away from the country around this autumn even though noone was after them xD

Speaking of the Global South. The illustration is accidentally based…

This is all sorts of disgusting, of course, but I can’t help but LOL at the stupidity of it.

Yeah, but you gotta do the legwork, if you want a symbolic stunt. Now people be laughing that instead of showing a trophy earned in battle you dragged your own wreckage out for everyone to see. And they’re throwing off the flowers now too, instead of going “How nice of you to bring flowers to mourn Ukrainian soldiers. B-b-bamboozled!”.

They say it’s a Ukrainian T-72 all over Russian Telegram too. Tactical markings or something. What an F if true.

But a China that is arming Russia against Ukraine is a China that has chosen to accept sharp, sustained tensions with the US, <…> and to engage in an outright proxy war with the West.

Oh, so the West is at war witih Russia then. Hard to keep your bullshit consistent when you say literally nothing but lies, ain’t it?

Russia cannot ensure its national security without violating Ukraine’s sovereignty so long as Ukraine remains a Nazi puppet state of an aggressive NATO hell-bent on destabilizing and destroying Russia.

You mean, Russia cannot violate something that isn’t there?)

But yeah, what you said. It’s not a plan, but it’s a good statement for Chinese MoFA’s to make.

It’s an interesting mixture of disgust, rage and desire to laugh that I feel when AmeriKKKan politicians say shit like that.

Oh damn, he’s almost right.

Except it’s the other way aroudn. Ukraine radicalized it’s non-extremist troops long ago and almost any Ukrainian formation is basically indistinguishable from Azov\Aidar\Tornado\Right Sector. That’s what rolling those early paramilitaries into national guard, police and army was all about. People from those were used for conditioning the rest.

A planet from Sumer mythology or something. That’s where reptiloids that rule us came from too.

You know, in wacky conspiracy nonsense.

Alien mind-control tech that runs on Uyghur blood. CeeCeePee - reptiloids from Nibiru confirmed.

Yeah, seems those CIA fucks responsible for maintaining Mexico’s freedom from order and prosperity been slacking. Why the fuck is a president speaking for the country instead of a council of drug cartel bosses anyway? It’s an outrage.

Capitalist state has to be dismantled because it’s the tool of oppression. Why would the ruling class relinquish it? Socialist state is supposed to be a transitory step on the way to communism where functions of the state apparatus are made more and more simplified through automation, everyone participates in it’s work at some point and it becomes habit. Something like that is in chapter 3.

Ultimately, I wouldn’t think too much about it. Lenin points out himself that Marx expected experience of revolutionaries to provide a clue as to what exactly will have to replace the dismantled capitalist state, let alone what the world revolution will look like. In fact, forget the “Marx expected” part. We have a method - diamat - and it postulates unity of cognition and practice.

Examples of early socialist experiments prove that:

a) local specifics are to be considered. There is a reason it’s called internationalism and not cosmopolitanism. You can’t come and tell muslims that they’re to forget all that hooplah and get in line, for example. Muhammad had a thing or two to say about running a state too and comrades in Islamic countries will have to work with that.

b) socialist sates will have to stick around for a while, because communism is planetary and imperialists won’t let those trying to build it be.

Then, I’d wager, a whole world of socialist states would have to keep up some of the state’s functions for a few generations to make sure no counter-revolutionary dickweed is going to fuck it all up.

Fucking…seriously? We get those vaccines when we’re 1 and 6 still, even in our decaying counter-revolutionary weirdland. It’s mandatory!

An especially good piece for new comrades.

Make no mistake, our corporate Big Brothers have read Das Kapital. They just think they can game the system described in it forever.

You’re joking, but the concept does have everything to do with this.

Modern western liberalism is a postmodernist brainchild through and through, and postmodernists equate all points of view. Whatever are we to do with the points of view that postulate the existence of truth then? Why, we lump them together and brand them E V I L, of course. There is your philosophical footing for “totalitarianism” bullshit.

Ok, I’m gonna be the buzzkill.

It’s fucked up that The Marked One and the Everqueen’s deaths are the best things this year. What a fucking time…

Don’t tell them “human nature” people about primitive communism. They won’t survive.

As I read a guy say about American diplomacy with China, the US “diplomacy” is impotent outside of scenarios where they recieve someone for a briefing, like Zelensky here, or just bring an aircraft carrier and tell people what to do. In their paradigm you’ve already lost the negotiations if you’re negotiating instead of reading out the terms. Applies with some changes to the UK too. In short, their diplomacy is fucking dead and decomposing.

Given the success of missiles and drones, that the area I would expect Russia to further invest in. Currently, the west has no real counter to that.

I agree about missiles, but I second what comrade Shrike said about drones. You know how some generals all over Europe were weird about tanks on the verge of WWII? Some shit like this happened with drones and some of our generals, and, unfortunately, someone in the MoD listened to them. There would be no need to start buying thousands of dirt cheap Iranian ones in the middle of a war otherwise. This is being fixed with loitering munitions right now, because you don’t argue with results and Shaheds Gerans are very easy to mass produce due to simple design, tipping my hat to Iranian engineers, but NATO is far ahead when it comes to UCAV’s and recon drones. I guess, good news here is that UCAV’s don’t fair any better against air defence systems then aircraft does as Bayraktars have shown and Russia is no Armenia nor is it Iraq in terms of air defence, but situation with recon drones is pretty fucked right now. That is being worked on too, but there is nothing like Global Hawk in sight.

Oh, SBU moved back into one of their torture basements. Cool…

First of all, I hate the word. It’s just one of the types of ad hominem (which, itself, is a type of ignoratio elenchi). STOP COMING UP WITH UNNECESSARY WORDS, PEOPLE!

Libs shouting “WHATABOUTISM” about war in Ukraine is pretty funny, because it’s usually their response to questions like “where are sanctions on the US at though?”. So, they automatically admit their hypocrisy when demonizing nations for the same things they defend the imperialist core for. Also, since I know SMO is justified, I never used it as a defence of Russia - only as an attempt to make them see that hypocrisy. Silly me, they found ways to cope. EU libs, for example, just go like “hey, USA is our ally, it’s not our job to sanction them”…admitting that Putin is right about the world order not being built on any law, but on rules that only work for those who’re part of the club.

Uighur “genocide” is a very simple one, as far as I’m concerned. Can you provide any evidence? No? Only that UN tissue paper written after their representative went to China, found nothing of the sort and got fired for saying so? That’s too bad. Come back when you have any better basis for accusing a nation of genocide than sinophobia.

I suspect it will be used as a tool for foreign media censure


In my city some “activists” have apparently raided book stores

If you’re implying what I think you’re implying, don’t know if I can agree. Our government has all the subtlety of a jackhammer.

The first point is jumping the shark. I would wait for cases of application. Criminal code article about “hurting the feelings of the religious” (another dumbass one) sounds like it’s 50/50 that you’ll get jailed for speaking about religion at all, but it specifies public actions taken to insult the faithful.

The second point is about as nebulous as it sounds. Gotta wait and see what is gonna be considered propaganda. I doubt they will order the book stores to take Russian classics off the shelves for mentions of sexual minorities and there are some.

All in all it’s most likely something ike this.

“Institute for Rehabilitating Minor German War Criminals”

Opinion invalid, thanks, have a nice day.

P.S. Seriousy, wtf?
