they make penance with speech acts, not real action.
they live their lives in constant guilt.
they live in cities that are only differentiated from other cities by being huge destinations for wealth, then they disavow that wealth while continuing to partake in the lifestyle it provides.
they blame rich people for all the evils of the world while ignoring that they are the 1%.
they prescribe how other people should be living their own lives.
they say things that have no meaning other than to reveal to others that they are members in this very sensitive club of good people.
it's nothing but performative.

Not every radical is a marxist! That being said, a quick google reveals Marx wrote directly about the enclosure of the commons and his take wasn't "this is a positive step towards communism".

at some base level we're just talking about stronger people exploiting weaker people, with "strength" and "weakness" determined largely by economic status. And that's a tendency that far, far predates the industrial world that birthed Marxism, right?

― sarahell, Thursday, 23 March 2023 bookmarkflaglink

That isn't really the case. You can be a Marxist without having read much Marx or theory, but capitalism driving the world to it's end in ecological catastrophe can't be explained merely by weak Vs strong.

xyzzzz__, Tuesday, 18 April 2023 07:44 (ten months ago) link

I think the issue with that statement is you can sub in all sorts of things for "the industrial world" - stronger people exploiting weaker people predates monarchy, the enslavement of African peoples by European colonizers, fascism...all still true,right? And you could make the case that the end of those things merely paved the way for new forms of exploitation, but I think it's inarguable that ppl are better off without them. People tend to assume this messianic attitude...I'm under no illusions that a society without capitalism would be a perfect one. It might just be a little bit less miserable is all!

he thought it was a painful historical epoch to live through for most people, but a necessary one because it laid bare the exploitative nature of social relations. previously, these were harder to perceive, in his reading, because they were seen as natural, traditional, and stable.

treeship., Tuesday, 18 April 2023 12:21 (ten months ago) link

i think his analysis of capitalism is correct. it is a system where value is produced by labor, but laborers do not reap the profits of their labor. it is also a system that demands constant growth and so it tramples all over any attempt to restrain it for ecological, humanitarian, or other reasons. i also agree with his historical argument, that the capitalism gave human subjects a different kind of understanding of themselves in relation to history. suddenly, the social order appeared as something that could be changed fundamentally and not just at the margins. this seems true enough.

what i don't necessarily agree with is his vision of the road to communism, which he outlines in the manifesto, not in capital or anywhere else to my knowledge. this part:

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.

to me this seems like the program of forced collectivization stalin instituted in the soviet union. others, like pol pot and mao, did similar things with similar results. there was a period of mass suffering and death as the society shifted from an agricultural economy to an industrial one under central planning.

Agreed! ... though they could end up being more miserable, idk, or less miserable in some ways, more miserable in other ways ... I think I have trouble with the premise that humanity would stop coming up with new forms of exploitation ... not that I'm arguing that we are currently at the least misery possible and it's all downhill from here ...

Yeah, I’m sure the (fucking) NY Post has no ulterior motive there. Not only does the criticism say that some students are being forced to miss core classes if they take music, the board is actually quoted as literally saying “There is nothing intrinsically white supremacist” about it, the concern seems to be rooted in students having to miss lunch periods and core classes to take music - and presumably that affects certain demographics more hence the poorly worded reasoning.
