¡Patria o muerte!
Well, I mean, murder is for sure something that’s going to happen under any political system regardless, people will not get along with some other people for a lot of reasons, but labour in the form of sexual exploitation is definitely something that could not exist, and the idea of abolishing should be a step in that direction. I’m sure with time they will sort it out, I just think they probably abolish it too early due to a lot of cultural factors.
In my opinion it should be regulated while under capitalism, abolishing can only be done in socialism and still you need to put in place a real system to get these people to not work there anymore. China IMO hasn’t handled that very well since it’s not legal but clearly there are still prostitutes working there.

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.
It’s uploaded to Vimeo by the way.
From the start, this shouldn’t have escalated as much as it did, it is completely stupid, and it shows the internal modus operandi of the repressive forces of the bourgeoisie. It is disgusting.
Still, let’s say you do needed to detain someone. I’m not an expert in restraint or CQC, but I know my fair share and I’ve practiced with people who are masters, I’ve practiced with police members who attend classes, and I can tell you that there’s not the most basic understanding of how to physically subdue someone here. We train in ways where you might be outnumbered 2 to 1 and you can still subdue someone, here there were 5 people trying to restrain one single person and the only way they managed to do this is to kill him. A submission can be executed with basically almost no harm to the other person, because the idea is to utilize the body’s biomechanic in a way that either impossibilitates movement and/or reduces the amount of strength the other person has in a way that allows for the submission. There’s nothing of that here, the only thing present is five guys who have absolutely no idea what they are doing, assuming wrong positions, stumbling into each other and who only know of brute force, they have absolutely no training in how to deal with such a situation both in a psychologically and technical level.
AFAIK Hegel used other terms:
a. abstract and intellectual (verständig)
b. dialectical or negatively rational (negativvernünftig)
c. speculative or positively rational (positivvernünfig)
And while I generally agree with your take on rigid structures, I think it works better for a basic understanding of dialectics, it is worth noting also that for example the last step in a dialectical process can be the first step in another dialectical process.
We need first to understand that socialism is equal to the dictatorship of the proletariat, and that communism is equal to a classless society.
I think your question is why can communism can be achieved through “reformism” whereas socialism can’t. This has to do with dialectics and the qualitative change. It is also important to keep in mind that communism can’t be achieved only in one country, but it needs at the very least (from my point of view) to dominate most of the world in order to be achieved.
We’d need to understand that the thesis would be a quantity in motion, upon it acts a force which is also another quantity which produces a change in the previous quantity, this results in a new quantity, which also posses a new quality. The qualitative change is the synthesis of first quantity (thesis) over which a new quantity acts upon (antithesis). A sheet of paper minus a part is still a sheet of paper, but shred it to pieces and it stops being a sheet of paper, it becomes something else. In the case of class struggle this qualitative change can be understood as capitalism (thesis), which is the first form of a quantity in motion, revolution (antithesis), which is another quantity that applies a force that can produce a change, and dictatorship of the proletariat (synthesis), which is a new quantity with a new quality.
Reformism deals with the conditions of the current society and does not deal with the conditions that are to come. It deals with what is possible within the current society. It does not look at society from the perspective of what needs to change, it looks at society from the perspective of not changing anything and finding compromises.
Moreover, the same dialectical process occurs in order to achieve a classless society, the only difference is you are now keeping in mind the international proletariat instead of the proletariat of one country. One country with a dictatorship of the proletariat can’t produce a change on its own in the grand scheme of things, but multiple changes produce a new quantity which also contains in itself a new quantity, the abolition of class in general.
I’m sure if you search for Holodomor in Lemmygrad you will find some great and excellent post/comments that will go way more in depth than me, but as a brief version: It’s Western propaganda. Basically during the Holodomor some landlords and bourgeois who owned grain in Ukraine preferred to dispense of the grain instead of giving it to the USSR because they would not get any profit from it, which was going to be used to distribute it among the many countries that composed it. This caused a famine and it is Stalin’s fault somehow during a time when the USSR was already facing a harsh time in many senses.
Argentina’s president is pretty shitty but he’s trapped in the inheritance of Peronism at least when it comes to international politics, specially considering how the region currently is, it may be a different scenario if the neighboring nations would be right wing neoliberals. So I doubt he would agree. Colombia currently has a president who was in a Marxist Leninist guerrilla in his youth, and while he’s no longer a Marxist I doubt he would go for such a shitty move.
BTW, they actually did not ask only those three, they also asked Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico y Peru. So they are asking the country who’s ex president who’s being persecuted by law and that you are offering political asylum to donate their Russian weapons and buy Usonian ones instead.
A good and customizable app drawer for Android, there are some but most are “minimalist”, meaning it’s all text, and the other ones don’t have the features I want, like being able to organize apps however I want to, not on alphabetical order.
