If you buy a digital book you should rip it and share it.

JFK is running I’ll vote for JFK: back for blood.

The web should be broken into nooks of a thousand gardens. The superficial web should be entirely smashed. The majority of the web should be crazy, personally hosted websites off of someones personal computer. There should be no more cloud, no more server farms. We should land an artillery shell into the middle of google’s, facebook’s, etc, warehouse and see what happens.

It’s a sin to speak that name in vain

Steam and emulators work great but somethings are more complicated. As far as games your confined inside the steam environment unless you’re willing to do extra work.

What do you think? You think with all the meth in the US we’d be the most revolutionary society.

It’s just going to rot your brain, no matter how great it makes you feel. You’re going to spend all night tinkering, busily spinning in circles and getting nowhere. By the end of it you’ll be jerking your head, looking for phantoms. That’ll be the end of it for you one way or the other.

It’s all fun and games until the grass is staring at you.

“I, as most people, assumed the banks weren’t interested in playing stupid games after 2008”

I don’t remember that being the common consensus.

I think it will come back. They have a memory of the Soviet Union. They have the largest communist party inside of capitalist nation. They’ve already nationalized, centralized their core economy, though privatized government-bourgeois relations still exist. Primarily they’re tying themselves to China. Capitalism insures itself with NATO terror. If Russia started massacring communists, China wouldn’t be backing those massacres up. They’re in a position were capital is forced to capitulate to socialism.

Socialism is guaranteed simply by not having an external terror campaign.

The left most picture has Trump with three legs, simultaneously moving backwards and forwards. The cop in the foreground is reaching through perspective to grab Trumps dick. The right most cop is in his own world, freakishly in focus, and can’t be placed anywhere in the physical world.

The other picture also makes no sense of the same reasons. Legs look twisted and broken. The cop seems to grab hold of Trumps leg at the knee for it to spill over into a liquid before reforming in a totally wrong position. And physically it would make no sense to have your hand there.

The images are painful to look at. Arguing whether they’re convincing is so far afield as to be confusing.

I started watching “in the name of the people” on youtube, but I’ve been too busy with other things to watch much since the last time this came up

Who exhibits their leader as a frightened child? I remember this when it was in the news

It’s insane Linux is still at 2%. There are distributions that are more user friendly than Windows. They come with preinstalled tools that meet user needs you didn’t even know existed. Linux, as it stands today, is better than Windows in every category, not even considering all of the reasons to not use Windows. So why is Windows still dominating the PC space? Maybe because this shift in layman-utility is only a few years old, you often have to go out of your way --requiring the knowledge of how to install an OS – to use Linux, pre-builds mask the cost of Windows and remove the choice, and a general bias against the unfamiliar.

I think I saw it in theaters and liked it. It was the first ‘found footage’ film I had seen, and the only one that really caught me

Spanish very slowly. I think it’s important to be able to speak with the rest of America. But it’s the hardest thing I’ve put myself to.

That laugh has to be the most contagious laugh

I’ve yet to meet a MAGA boy who supported the war in Ukraine.

guy wants to remove federal insurance for YOUR money. He straight said he wants to abolish the department of education; and then what?, give it the titans of capital. You'll have have Lookheed-Martin and BP running the schools, but that will teach them. Worst of everything is his open threats of war against Mexico. I've never been more against a war than a war with Mexico. The Mexican-American War was the most hated war in United States History. Lincoln denounced it. Thoreau wrote "Civil Disobedience" in regard to that war. There was the highest rate of mutiny ever recorded in the US military. The US cannot be allowed to do this, and if it does it will not survive as a Hegemone. How do you think all the Mexicans in the United States, as civilian and as members of the military, are going to respond? The government has lost it's fucking mind. Just because the people of the United States couldn't give a shit about a war in Europe doesn't mean they won't go berserk over a war on their border against a nation a lot of us have extreme affection and solidarity toward. Greenwald not only brings this lunatic on, but says he likes some of his points. Which one? Which fucking lunatic point did Greenwald find appealing? I gave him a lot of credit because of Snowden, but this is leagues beyond the pale. This is utterly abhorant.

Probably art and theory and so on. Have people go to school longer. Diversify the economy and provide redundancy. Move the economy in directions where people can remain productive.

But I spent a thousand times more for it. Are you telling me it isn’t a thousand times better?

if xi were to die tomorrow we’d have no idea who would replace him

Wouldn’t paying attention to China in a journalistic and academic mode be more effective to understanding China at much lower price than implementing a network of treasonous spies? It would certainly be less bellicose and more diplomatic.

US intelligence doesn’t seek to understand. It’s a corrupting agent. They don’t want to know who’s replacing Xi; they want to decide who’s replacing Xi.

Reddit is good for technical support, if a reddit link appears in a search result.

No, I didn’t think you were. I was just offering the counter-point to your original comment.

What ever happened to the lawsuit about companies using copyrighted works without permission to feed their AI?

It’s legal to create derivative work. If the medium of creating that derivative was an AI you’d assume the AI work wouldn’t inherit the copyrights of the original. As long as it isn’t considered plagiarism, my derivative work wouldn’t be owned by the original. Weird Al isn’t breaking patent rights. His work is copyrighted. Weird Ai would follow the same except its work couldn’t be copyrighted.

The secret is that everybody is already a fascist, they know they are if by another name. The US is already full fascist and everybody who does not denounce their government unequivocally is a fascist. I mean no hyperbole. They literally all know. Nobody doesn’t know. I could name the cops the prisons the wars, the concentration camps.

Edit out the rambling.

If someones being hateful where it feels like the point is to hate whoever they hate with them thats a redline for me personally. Otherwise if someone is lying to me or I feel they’re intentionally lying.

If information seems tertiary or a rehash of other peoples opinions.

If people want get off a tired subject or a subject I don’t personally want to hear about over and over again. Where it feels they’re getting me lost in the mud.

For me the Empanada thing was annoying but I still respected for his better work

But primarily make up your own mind rather than letting people on a forrum decide where you draw your lines.

Who broke the OPCW scandal and spoke before the UN? Does anyone remember?
Who exposed the Uyghur genocide for what it was and, without missing a beat, exposed the credulous source of that propaganda? Who exposed the ins and outs of the Russian Conspiracy while everyone bought the into it or shut up out of fear of reprisal? Whoever these people are who've been around fighting the same tired fight, even while doing it alone, for longer than most of you have been "socialist": I think I'd follow them and whatever movement they were joining before I followed some nameless nothing who hasn't earned an ounce of reputation who was denouncing them. Some of you don't know who Chris Hedges is, and that's a shame. I've been following him for about my entire adult life. He was the first person to accurately declare the end of empire, well before anyone that it was possible. He was the first person to accurately define American Fascism. He's a master theologian, a war corespondent (when that meant something), a decorated professor, and a prisoners advocate, in ways that exceed anybody else in the country. His presence at an anti-war rally would give that movement unimpeachable credibility. Even Jimmy who's done more by exposing the liberals for what they are and attempting to force a vote for medicare for all has done more for the American Left than anybody has anything to say against him, excusing whatever child idiots he sometimes lets talk beside him. And some nobody nothing without an ounce of reputation is going to try to throw mud. That person isn't anything but an arrogant fool. Just have a little bit of history and a little bit of memory. It will go a long way. Not everybody who has something to say is worth listening to. Nobody is credible who hasn't earned their credibility. Learning who to listen to and who to ignore will save you a world of confusion.

Your username is a command-line binary. I wanted to answer with the response, but it would just be whoami which wouldn’t make sense, though would create a looping response if you echoed the output into the input.

Capital talks about train crashes.
Capital chapter 10 section3 Branches of English Industry without legal to exploitation >So far, we have dealt with Ireland. On the other side of the channel, in Scotland, the agricultural labourer, the ploughman, protests against his 13-14 hours’ work in the most inclement climate, with 4 hours’ additional work on Sunday (in this land of Sabbatarians!), [54] whilst, at the same time, three railway men are standing before a London coroner’s jury — a guard, an engine-driver, a signalman. A tremendous railway accident has hurried hundreds of passengers into another world. The negligence of the employee is the cause of the misfortune. They declare with one voice before the jury that ten or twelve years before, their labour only lasted eight hours a-day. During the last five or six years it had been screwed up to 14, 18, and 20 hours, and under a specially severe pressure of holiday-makers, at times of excursion trains, it often lasted for 40 or 50 hours without a break. They were ordinary men, not Cyclops. At a certain point their labour-power failed. Torpor seized them. Their brain ceased to think, their eyes to see. The thoroughly “respectable” British jurymen answered by a verdict that sent them to the next assizes on a charge of manslaughter, and, in a gentle “rider” to their verdict, expressed the pious hope that the capitalistic magnates of the railways would, in future, be more extravagant in the purchase of a sufficient quantity of labour-power, and more “abstemious,” more “self-denying,” more “thrifty,” in the draining of paid labour-power. [55]

Every time an English person says the letter “H” it sounds like they’re making a dig at whatever they’re talking about.
Hate-ch BO. I know its not very good, but the whole archipelago doesn't have to make the same dumb joke. Likewise, "whilst" isn't a word. Its just something people say because they think it makes them sound smart.

Almost killed myself two steps off of my front porch earlier today.
The whole city's frozen over. I slipped hard off the first step off my stoop and went comically flying. Took a couple minutes lying on the frozen earth to recover. Tis the season.

I’m having crashing problems with certain games and looking for advice or conformation that its a common issue.
I'm playing with steam with the latest version of proton on Linux Mint 21. Kernel 5.15.0-56. RTX 3070, last generation am4 R7 1800X. Certain games crash for no apparent reason, requiring a hard reset. The two most recent games with this issue were Horizon Zero Dawn and Remnant: From the ashes. It doesn't seem to be related to anything. It's not related to high load or load in, though sometimes it correlates other times it will just crash while nothing is happening. I think it might have something to do with the Vulcan shaders. Both of the named games take an unusually long time to process them. With Horizon Zero Dawn it can take up to twenty minutes and the processing itself causes the CPU fans to ramp up. I checked Nvidia's website to make sure I was using the most recent driver. It shows 525.60.11 as the most recent, which is what I'm using. The recommended open kernel version simply doesn't work, but closed works just fine; and I have no reason to think it's a gpu issue. I don't know if this is a solvable issue or if its something that has to be dealt with. On a side note: how do you get the resolution you want? I have a 4k monitor but my display is set to 1080p for readability. There's upscaling, but that upscales the game. The option to go above your system resolution is not available. So the only real solution would be to set the display to the hardware resolution and put my nose against the screen in order to access the game. It seems like such a weird hindrance. The hardware is there, but for readability sake you're stuck at 1080p

I think this is essential reading for everyone who considers themselves Marxist Leninst. For those who don't understand the division between socialism and liberalism this is possibly the greatest explanatory work. For everyone regardless of thought, this is a conversation between two of the most well known intellectuals of their time discussing a paramount subject which most people find perplexing. I don't know much about the party hosting the article, as I have no taste for blood pudding nor hard tact. The introduction they provide is decent enough. I hope you'll take the time to read this short interview.

I need communist propaganda in meme format I can text to my coworkers like their obnoxious grandma.
I'm looking for meaningful and convincing Images I can text to people who are not communist and do not understand the various subcultures in the slightest. Good distillations of communism. Thanks to all.
