will people be down with the radicals being the board of the squishies?


it'll probably look something like that, yeah. there isn't an oncoming schism in our internal politics or anything, we're just recognizing that some of the things we do like allied actions with other friendly more presentable orgs could easily get a little granting and pay for themselves if they were dressed up nicer, which would leave more of our existing resources for the fun stuff that would never receive external support in a million years. it is still gonna complicate and thereby weaken our position though.

like as a hypothetical example there are ways to get funding, in-kind resources and bright-eyed volunteers for a cop-free community patrol and physical safe zones initiative in a neighborhood that has sons of odin troubles, but when you include a critical cop watch component suddenly your supports get cold feet. so the idea is to run them in parallel with the same core people but different organizational bodies on paper.

they meant literally read old left-opposition bolsheviks, read about the spanish civil war, and build on the bolshevik revolution like it's 1924.

basically, somewhere in a very narrow range of historical texts and movements is the key to defeating fascism forever.


sure, why do actual materialist analysis of contemporary conditions when instead you could just cargo cult imitate your historical waifus

has anybody noticed that nobody can shut the fuck up about the singularity all of a sudden. not only is the singularity not nigh because 99% of artificial intelligence people are still locked into bad computational theory of mind but even the people forging ahead in AI and AL with embodied and enactive robotics/intelligence are barely, barely at the level where they can maybe make a small robot walk like a bug until it runs into a wall. nerds need to cut out this techno fetishism immediately or ill be ever so upset
#4091
Its going to be singularity & immortal god-kings are going to rule the world & YOUR not going to one of them haha.

An ancient legend told about a man who had the power to "hack society"... and now that legends time is finally true.

Speaking of which, I've decided to read through this website and the Encyclopedia of Anti-Revisionism Online because basically it's fun and cool to do.

ON THE WAY IN: 1. singularity 2. ironic & non ironic goose stepping
ON THE WAY OUT 1. Calling your boyfriend "daddy." 2. gingham

a friend of mine was very concerned about getting his consciousness loaded onto a disk drive, whatever that means, and fired into space on a space shuttle. he lives in a storm drain now

also people are really into the concept of the "masterclass" now, like paying to watch videos of Hans Zimmer teach you composition. so that you can unlock your hidden powers and become a famous composer by sitting in front of your ipad pawing at your facebook messenger notifications and half listening. paraphrasing Seth from Uhh Yeah Dude, if you watch a video and it changes your life, you're fucked.

Because it's fetishized so much by leftists I almost wish the Spanish Civil War never happened.

i was going to argue against their point angrily, but then i realised you don't need that. so all i'll say is, at least you've got something to educate them about, which may further radicalise them.
