capitalism won... and the rational humanism and mild utopianism that underpin socialism are also not very popular anymore.
who gives a shit if it's no longer appealing to effete liberals? they have never been relevant and have always aimed at sabotaging prole-determinalism—always.
without the "utopian" belief that a better world is possible there's not much reason to agitate for socialism. and the forces of techno-rationalism are now allied with singularity and Nick Land style futures.
lmao are you fucking kidding me? do you work a job?
imo when outright socialism re-enters the mainstream in the west it'll be through some fusion of a not-obviously-related set of tools & concepts & no one will see that shit coming at all

im actually curious. how do you respond when people trot that out? or do you just call them liberals and hope they feel enough shame to change their views?
no, i shame liberals on here because theyre perversely drawn to a forum about communism
It's not exactly controversial to point out that the collapse of the USSR/Eastern Bloc combined with the revisionism of the PRC hurt socialism guys. If you don't think the "it just doesn't work" crowd having the contemporary ability to highlight that is a contributing element to reaction idk that just doesn't make sense to me. I'm drunk rn tho so I might also be reading the room wrong
its a bunch of liberal propaganda. have your own propaganda

way ahead of u broseidon
being a girl is great i can be effete as fuck and no one calls me a faggot instead they act nice and buy me food and weed. haha what a wackkky world we live in
further proof the MRA are correct and that the matriarchy needs to be abolished.
also i don't know what this thread's about i'm just responding to the dogwhistle. in around 2007 half of america learned what "effete" meant for the first time and rolled it around on their tongue and wondered "why does this feel so good?" seriously just scream 'faggot' instead. youre not fooling anyone
eh... this sounds pretty twee
what are you after man, are you just a nihilist or what
No, I think life has meaning and purpose when in the service of Jesus Christ, our lord and savior.
right this is an argument about brand appeal of the word socialism within empire which is irrelevant. capitalism and socialism are modes of production and social organization, call it whatever you want, the specific wording is irrelevant to the material realities, movements of people and class struggle
this is one of the most sensible things ive read here in ages
