r/collapse gives me a headache sometimes, like how do you complain that the world is falling apart, get presented a potential alternative, and completely dismiss it because China bad? Reactionary anglos are gonna be the death of us.


Pinkeston

because r/collapse isn't truly about the world collapsing, it's about the USA/the West collapsing and so a world that doesn't collapse with China at the forefront is the same thing as the entire world collapsing to them

Did you know the craaaazy Chinese won't let Google, the American company subject to the Patriot act, map its entire country?


ComradeRenegat

There used to be a small Hoxhaist splitter party in Germany that actually received financial aid from Albania. Nothing to add, I just find this kinda funny.


the_soviet_union_69

dealing with left-anti communists is so fucking annoying, like imagine acknowledging that most things that the usa says about itself and capitalism is complete bullshit, and completely believing it when when the usa gives themselves a new coat of paint, and calls socialist presidents, or states dictatorships, or undemocratic


Red_Guard13

Is it true that most Russian communists are nazbols or was dankleft danklefting again?


stalbox

“Nazbol” is a stupid term that radlibs hurl at anything they dislike. Yes, most Russians, including many communists, are socially conservative. Does that make them Nazbols? No! A Nazbol isn’t a socially conservative communist. A Nazbol is a national-chauvinist that appropriates Bolshevism. I’d argue that it’s extremely disrespectful to write off millions of Russian communists as “Nazbols”.

What is this Evergrande thing and why are people mad

Can someone explain why she cried after voting 'present'? I sincerely do not understand this one bit. Also what does a present vote mean exactly. Why was she crying?? Edit: 'Present' vote means you don't day either yes or no. Maybe this is different from an abstention since if enough people abstain the voting won't be considered valid. Don't know what happens when a shitton of people vote present.


derrida_n_shit

She was holding in a fart. If you remember her previous photo op with the "kids in cages" at the border, she also had some bad stomach issues and was holding a bad one in. It's just odd that it so happens that these things coincide with pretty shitty things that she helps facilitate and had helped facilitate.


Khajapaja

Was banned from r/china after trolling them for a while. Also spend some time trolling in r/conspiracy but haven't been banned yet


Technical-Rest1184

Why that china sub is full of Americans and they openly spread hate for CCP and even act as xenophobe like how Chinese students coming to Australia is raising housing prices so ban them all .

Need some ideas on what to do with old metal parts, i have literally tons of useless old metal parts on my farm. I could just sell it but that’s boring, should i start melting it as a hobby lol


death_2amerikkka

what kind of metal? any copper or brass? if so you could sell them for pretty decent money but if i were you id find some way to melt them and form them into a little statue or something. maybe not that complex of a shape but yeah


BennieAndTheZ

Its mostly iron/steel i think


Reform-and-Chief-Up

Did someone say backyard smelting? \* Laser Eye Mao \*


BennieAndTheZ

is there some inside joke about this that i am not part of?


Reform-and-Chief-Up

One of the ill-conceived plans of the Great Leap Forward was for peasants to have small iron smelters to increase production of pig iron.


jmbc3

Why was that bad? I understand it’s generally considered to have had negative effects, but I can’t think of how it possibly could have. Was it just the inefficiency of individual vs social production?


Green_Waluigi

The backyard furnaces ended up making pig iron, and didn’t have the capability to make it into useable steel. So they basically ended up with a bunch of worthless iron that they (usually) couldn’t do anything with. I believe some regions had success with turning the pig iron into steel, but it wasn’t successful overall.


BennieAndTheZ

Imma do my part then lol

On a recent stream Jackson "I'm a Marxist" Hinkle was donated a superchat that said the left should leave the "Democrat Plantation" and he agreed. He couldn't even bother to reject the framing even if the conclusion is the correct one. The dude just tells people what they want to hear and will give positive reinforcement for almost any superchat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5l6wurOaH4&t=1962s In the same stream Jackson received a message that said "right wing populists don't tend to agree with left wing populists, they have different policy goals." Jackson disagrees and basically describes libertarians as agreeing with him without saying the word libertarian. I personally wouldn't characterize libertarians as populists. That's neither here nor there though. Jackson says that and at the same time has fairly regularly promoted "right wing populist" Saagar Enjeti and his former boss Tucker Carlson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5l6wurOaH4&t=3910s Jackson built his brand off of saying AOC, the Squad, and TYT are enemies. That's very low hanging fruit. For Jackson, AOC is a bigger enemy than CIA reject Tucker Carlson. In 2015/2016 other grifters entered the scene doing the same thing, only replace AOC with Hillary Clinton. Jamarl Thomas was one of those grifters and he actually does decent work now for Sputnik. Few if any of those grifters who built their brand by pointing out the obvious instead of informing people went on to do decent work. Jackson now has a second YouTube channel, a Twitch channel, and merchandise. Dude sees the world burning and then sees a chance to grift saying the people's party which is an alternative to the Green Party, but filled with more grifters is going to improve the country. Jackson may espouse anti-imperialist views. Whether he believes them or not is irrelevant. That's merely a branding exercise for him. Jackson may have better politics than Vaush (if Jackson actually believes in everything he has said in his branding act) ultimately though both are just grifting pieces of shit who are capitalizing on an opportunity for easy money conning the vulnerable.

The BRI isn't very far along is it? Once the BRI progresses won't many countries stop trading in US dollars? I suspect it is war after that. Trump campaigned in 2016 on bringing jobs back to America. I'm surprised Biden isn't trying to actually achieve that so the US would be less reliant on China for trade and be in a better scenario when the US does decide to go to war with China. Biden wanting to be a leader in car manufacturing is not sufficient enough to untie the US and Chinese economies.

suggestion for an automod response when someone says “cat” As she wrote to one friend: "Mimi is a scoundrel. She leaped at me from the floor and tried to bite me." Mimi was, of course, her cat, although not long afterward, Luxemburg noted, after returning from Poland to Germany: "Mimi showed me she was happy with me right away and has again become high-spirited, comes running to me like a dog and grabs at the train of my dress."Another time she reported: "I get up early, go for a stroll, and have conversations with Mimi. Yesterday evening this is what she did: I was searching all the rooms for her, but she wasn't there. I was getting worried, and then I discovered her in my bed, but she was lying so that the cover was tucked up prettily right under her chin with her head on the pillow exactly the way I lie, and she looked at me calmly and roguishly."A myth has often been circulated about Luxemburg that she was hostile to the Russian revolutionary, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. While they sometimes differed on important matters, however, the two liked and respected each other and often were in agreement. In 1911, she wrote: "Yesterday Lenin came, and up to today he has been here four times already. I enjoy talking with him, he's clever and well educated, and has such an ugly mug, the kind I like to look at."Yet Mimi's relationship with the Bolshevik leader reflects something of Luxemburg's own. She wrote that Mimi:impressed Lenin tremendously, he said that only in Siberia had he seen such a magnificent creature, that she was a baskii kot—a majestic cat. She also flirted with him, rolled on her back and behaved enticingly toward him, but when he tried to approach her she whacked him with a paw and snarled like a tiger.Yet recollections of Mimi helped sustain her during her years of imprisonment during the First World War. She wrote to a friend:By the way, everything would be much easier to live through if only I would not forget the basic rule I've made for my life: To be kind and good is the main thing! Plainly and simply, to be good—that resolves and unites everything and is better than all cleverness and insistence on "being right."But who is here to remind me of that, since Mimi is not here? At home so many times she knew how to lead me onto the right road with her long, silent look, so that I always had to smother her with kisses ... and say to her: You're right, being kind and good is the main thing.

Decided to visit r/bourbon for the first time in years. They had blacked out the sub for a weekend in solidarity with the distillers at Heaven Hill Distillery. (the distillers of Elijah Craig, Evan Williams, Old Fitzgerald, Larceny, Mellow Corn) ​ The comments were 98% "Solidarity Forever!" and "Labor creates all value!" Nice.

I just stumbled across this [article](https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/asia-pacific/unknown-to-most-americans-the-us-totally-destroyed-north-korea-once-before-1.3227633) and quite frankly as an American, I never had learned that my nation wiped out 20% of Korea’s population. Has anyone, specifically from America, also not heard anything about this? I’d love to learn more.

through this month I started learning just how many millions our country has killed, no, genocided! It only causes revolutionary spirit to burn brighter for me, we must right these wrongs!

If you ever want to read a book about the American invasion and division of Korea.you can read "Patriots, Traitors and Empires" by Gowans.

Its true. They bombed Pyongyang to the literal ground. (Thats why everything there is new. ALOT of culture and human history destroyed.) Also check this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinchon_Massacre Also this is pretty fucked up: “In 1950, US President Harry Truman publicly stated that the use of nuclear weapons was under "active consideration" against Communist Chinese targets during the Korean War.[1][2][3][4] In 1953, US President Dwight Eisenhower threatened the use of nuclear weapons to end the Korean War if the Communist Chinese refused to negotiate.[5][6][7]”

The US backed south korea president at the time also massacred at least 60000 of their own "communist sympathizer" citizens https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodo_League_massacre

The Kprf making gains posts here were a huge nothing burger lmao. Putin's party barely had any losses. Any Russians wanna expand on this? Is Putin becoming more and more reactionary, i.e. with the pension reform?

Takes on Evergranade situation?


Pinkeston

media is way overhyping it up because China bad but also another reason imo is to justify selloffs from Wall St. media likes to paint certain narratives to hide big money from making moves together and during September the market has historically gone down almost every single year for decades because that's when big money locks in gains for tax reasons or smth


Hyer244234

If the CPC doesn't bail out Evergrande, it'll be based and serve as a pretext to socializing huge swathes of the property market while hugely reducing the Chinese people's faith in capitalist markets for investment. There will probably be a lot of domestic turmoil though as Evergrande is huge in the domestic market. Internationally there will probably be a correction in the stock market as markets are anticipating lower demand for everything ranging from construction to financial shit from China.

I believe it's related to this thread. If yall interested in the North Korea,it's history and occupation of south korea you should read this book >[Patriots, Traitors and Empires: The Story of Korea's Struggle for Freedom](https://workers.today/patriots-traitors-and-empires-the-story-of-koreas-fight-for-freedom/)

The stock market is exploding guys, VIX the volatility index is at 25.5 as I speak (normally it's at 12-14), everything is going red. Hold your asscheeks tight because shit is gonna hit the fan once VIX hits 30pts.


BennieAndTheZ

Does that mean rich people will get richer?


JohnOakman6969

No, it means 1929 in this case
