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.

An “file explorer” for images that works with a tagging system.

Something like FilmAffinity or Letterboxd, but federated.

This is not GTA, this is L4D2 where you can shoot at Tank’s rocks with AKs to destroy them, only that they’re failing.

Where’s the repository for Bunkr? It has a Soviet Union domain, I wonder if the developer is a communist.

Yeah, that was the one. It looks really nice, not even JS, good web site.

There was a North Korean web site that had quite a few books written by them, but damn if I can find it, I have one that I downloaded, I could try uploading them somewhere.

Ole ole, ole ole, el que no salta, es un burgues!

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.

Fucking collpase, fucking collapse already, your whole country is worthless, you just bring suffering to the world, fuxking kill yourself already.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Shut the fuck up, glad Lula imprisoned the whole lot of you.

Yeah, it’s the first left wing president who seems to be in the correct path in Colombia for at least two decades.

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.

Ahh, yeah, I’ve heard of those, that’s like a company that buys you shit from Japanese markets and sends it to you? Because the Japanese don’t sell world wide generally.

Huh, is the first link cheaper or what? The other tries to charge me on USD and it is way more expensive.

How can you even think that is a possibility after the wave of anti imperialists that are under power?

Could you share the 3D print model? That looks sick as fuck. Also, what’s that figure at the back?

So? .onion addresses only leverages some load to the nodes, it doesn’t make your connection more anonymous/secure.

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.

Do we have a Lemmygrad introductory “course” to Marxism? Should we build one?
AFAIK, we you join pretty much any communist party they give you materials for basic comprehention and provide you with some materials. It generally is some extract of a text and some party written stuff, maybe we could do something like that. Or a very brief and short text, and a "bigger" one for a bit more in depth understanding (complete Communist Manifesto and a few more articles/short book)?


Deng Xiaoping’s quote from “The Situation Following Our Triumphant Advance to the Central Plains and Our Future Policies and Strategy”
> We should also adopt a correct policy for industry and commerce. We have learned some lessons in this regard. Often you may think you are winning over the many, but in reality you are losing them. When capitalists do business, they naturally want to make money by exploiting others. If a firm goes bankrupt or we confiscate it, it will have a much more adverse effect on the lives of the people than the exploitation of the capitalist does. So in doing things we would first consider by whose side we stand and how we can better serve the masses. Prohibiting capitalist exploitation sounds like a revolutionary idea, but if we make some calculations, we shall find that it is not a revolutionary idea, but an idea that will lead our revolution to failure. Operating in the Central Plains, the hundreds of thousands of our men there need food and clothing. If we neglect industry and commerce, we shall not be able to move forward at all. We have to organize our own economy to meet the needs of war. [...] Therefore, we should take advantage of existing private industrial and commercial enterprises and organize our economy step by step. This merits our attention regarding the mass movement; we cannot allow the confiscation or closing down of industrial and commercial enterprises, including those owned by landlords and rich peasants. If the masses have divided up these enterprises, we must help them resume operation as quickly as possible. at the same time, we should form a united front with the businessmen, urging them to accept the paper money we issue. We should grant loans to businessmen and allow them to buy shares. The economy cannot be organized overnight. We should constantly check tax rates and our policy concerning industry and commerce, focusing our attention on war supplies and the people’s means of livelihood. While opposing profiteering and monopoly, we should still allow businessmen to make some money. Without specific policies, practical problems cannot be solved.

Deng Xiaoping’s quote from The Principles, Tasks and Orientation for Cultural Work in The 129th Division
> The objective world keeps developing from day to day. In order to do a better job, one has to study; in order to learn something, one has to be open-minded. A person who is not open-minded will accomplish nothing. Discussion with others is a good way to pool collective wisdom. Study and discussion can serve to remove the defects in a work, perfecting it and making it produce better results. One can make progress only if one accepts opinions from others.

audio issues with Linux
So I got a new CPU, an AMD, so I bought a new mother and so on and installef latst Zorin OS on my SDD, everything works fine but I hear distorted sound and they layer on top of each other, like, the same sound starts repeating and causing more distortion. I tried doing some stuff with Alsamixer but to no avail, whst to do?

Why we say that “there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism”
I thought it would be a nice idea to try and explain this phrase, and by extension explain from where profit is extracted, since both seem like easy concepts which can be understood more easily if simple examples are provided. I do not have a degree on Marxism so I may miss something, but I hope I'm doing my best to help you understand them in a more interesting way. ---- This phrase, which you will probably heard being spouted by the left faction within the liberals, either on the internet or in the form it has taken as the national bourgeoisie in your country, or also by anarchists and other forms of idealists, makes sense only if analyzed through the lenses of Marxism. So, then, why do we say ethical production, and by antonomasia, consumption, is impossible within a capitalist society? Are these *cruelty free* products that you are buying worthless? Well, it all comes down to profit. To understand how capital accumulation happens, and how wage theft is carried out, we need to understand from where profit is extracted. I will try to provide an easy example, taken out of all the abstraction and complexities of our society so that it will be easier for comprehension. Let's say you have a carpenter, they are the owner of their hammer and their saw, with these tools they are charged by some small company in their village to build tables, simple, block shaped tables. They need to buy 1$ worth of nails for every table they produce, and they charge 9$ per hour for the production of such table. The final price they will sell this table, to this merchant person who is owner of this small company, is that of 10$. He will then resell the aforementioned table at a value of 15$ at his company. This 5$ that seem to have appeared out of nowhere is what we Marxist call "Surplus Value". Remember this example is astonishingly simplistic, but this is the core reality of what factory workers go through when producing goods, only there are at least a thousand other factors and different levels of exploitation in the process of creating the final product. This is reason behind ethical consumption is impossible, because the core principles upon which production is based in a capitalist society are those of exploitation, there's no conceivable labour where wage theft does not occur. It's not that trying to be vegan, or not hurting animals in the process, or using renewable sources for their materials is pointless. But rather these are all forms that the capitalist superstructure synthesizes into so that it can amass a bigger profit, a grosser capital. These practices should be praised, and are needed, but under a different system, practices such as these will never bring a meaningful change, only Marxist thought and the political and scientific implementation of it in the material world can do so.

Latin American Instance
Hello people, I wanted to inform you that together with several Latin American colleagues we applied for the [project](https://join-lemmy.org/news/2022-03-17_-_Free_Lemmy_instance_hosting) that the developers of Lemmy did a few months ago about the free instance for a year and for which we were chosen. If you read the rules to participate in this project, you will see that the instance does not have to take any defined political position and has to be one of general use. We made the decision to form a space where the Latin American community can form ties and exchange ideas in a place that respects their privacy away from the US monopolies. As many of us who are part of the project know, we have anti-capitalist ideologies and support proletarian revolution around the world. In this way we also support and allow the development and fostering of Marxist communities within Lemilat, but it should be remembered that it is not a Marxist Leninist body, so we ask all those who wish to participate to maintain decorum in the face of the multiplicity of individuals who may participate here. Without further ado, welcome! https://lemilat.ml/
