Is it true that the american left is not against Facebook? As a European communist I can't understand why the fuck you only have a liberal left willing to take corporations' cocks, we just have them in a so little number that they matter nothing. What are your thoughts about the politics of censorship

Companies may have their own prerogative (Chick-fil-a funding gay-away programs) but it's ultimately up to the end-user (or consumer) to collectively demand change or just dealwithit.jpg

I get some people may have a view that FB is so popular (surveys show that normies get their news not from news sources but "Facebook", however that works) that FB may have a "responsibility" to respect the freedom of speech values that its country of origin (U.S.) has, but that is debate-able.

it rises from the fact that the "alt-right" and their ideas are radioactive(if they're right or wrong doesn't really matter). A person of far right beliefs would generally want to avoid a place that demonizes them, falling back on fringe communities for expression(censorship is another problem as well).

Now for them coming to this board in particular, what's more cyberpunk than an online fringe group held together by

memes and common interest, usually subverting botnets and politicians.

I don't think any liberals give a shit about porky stealing their data because they've never had an original thought in their lives so "nothing to hide". I know there's "anarchists" who use facebook but I suspect the people who are actually getting shit done know to avoid facebook like the plague.

I agree with your points but I believe censorship does play a larger factor than what your point implies.

For example, while direct censorship certainly plays a role, I believe indirect censorship forced through social norms plays a larger factor. Open anonymous communities such as this allow individuals to express their actual thoughts/opinions. Such freedom-of-speech might seem as "alt-righty" for someone who lacks experience outside his/her social bubble, specially since these days they tend to act as a safespace.

Are you serious? I don't understand how someone who knows anything about libertarianism, or communism could attach them together in any way. They are functional opposites. I also don't understand what would motivate someone to identify openly as communist, Stalin and Mao killed hundreds of millions of people. Marx, Kant, and postmodernism have birthed some of the most toxic and destructive ideologies in the history of man.

The term libertarian was used by the left a long time before it was co-opted by right wing types. The "libertarian" right just wants to replace state domination with domination by private cooperations. And history shows that they ally with fascists every time.

>everything I don't like is postmodernism

go suck jordan petersons dick. Seriously can you even define postmodernism? Also what do you think marx actually wrote? I'll tell you: it's fucking boring ass economic theory. I'm not a marxist, even I can see that so called libertarians who side with people like pinochet don't know what the fuck they're talking about. You're on a cyberpunk board, have you read snowcrash? That's what your ancapistan would look like. You do realize distopia is not something you should aim for right? Look I would never defend stalin or mao, but those would be classed as "authoritarian communists". This person is distancing themself from that ideology.

Generally when someone uses the term "postmodernism" it's in reference to the movement's assertion that reality, truth, and morality are subjective. Although it's a simplification typically that is how it's defined. In principal communism depends on the idea that there is no hierarchy of values or disciplines. Even if you could achieve this cultural and ideological same-ness without centralized authority or censorship the first people to start behaving like libertarians E.g. "the doctrine of free will is the most important value" become a problem. Left leaning libertarian is one thing, "libertarian-communist" is another. I'm not defending capitalism, but communism would almost certainly be much worse.

Communists cannot be non-authoritarian, as they cannot comprehend autonomy of an individual. Even "anarcho" communist will only find rest after the last person within his reach be either eliminated or subverted under the rule of the group which the communist deems acceptable and "represents" the "society", while in practice just another government not different from any other. Of course, they are society and so if they control "means" of production, then it is socialism, as marxism defined it. Unless it fails entirely, like it happened every time. Then it will immediately transform into state capitalism, and all its victims are because of capitalist conspiracy to dominate workers.

Also, calling individualist movement(and yeah, leftist do not have monopoly on stuff people they claim to be leftists first used, but libertarian can be swapped with voluntarist easily) "fascist", while being collectivist yourself is really USSR levels of hipocricy.

I would like to clarify that I am not ancom or communist, personally I tend towards egoist anarchism. However I think so called libertarians are not as individualist as they would claim to be. The only difference between tankies and libertarians is one demands domination by the state, and the other demands domination by private institutions. If you want to take it further, transhumanists are for domination by technology, primitivists are for domination by nature. I would like none of that. I agree that it's still a state even if you don't call it one (catalonia I'm looking at you and your "anarchist" prisons). Still I think that libertarian communism can exist, it's just really hard to get there because you either need a state which will most likely choose not to "wither away", or you need some organization to perform all the duties of a state, which is just a fucking state. In my opinion, an individual can't be free unless every individual is free. While capitalism exists this is not possible.

I recommend to read something on individualism, as it is really idea of viewing other people as independent entities, and accept tham as you accept all other things in the outer world. You see a stone, you do not depend on it, you might make something of it, or leave it be for its uselessness for yoy, or if you, say, like the place where it lies. You do not feel the need to alter its state, you can use it, or not. It is not abot an object, but yiur own goals that may include it as an instrument or material. Claim that transhumanists are collectivist is wholly wrong, as one need not care about other people at all, simply willing to replace his leg(maybe even lost before) with something that would improve his life. There are technofascists, but to expand the claim that all transhumanists are is totally wrong, same for primitivists, or any other ideology, actually, as long as it involves the individual itself, instead of broad concepts like "society", "democracy", or any other grouping of individuals. Individual is free as long as he is individual, otherwise he is just an instrument, he can just be more or less able to do stuff. By the claim that individual cannot be * unless all other individuals are * means you cannot be further from egoism, as it is an ideology of indifference to other individuals, and view of them wholly as resources to reach personal goals, and is different from individualism is that individualist may still care about others, using empathy as a process inside the individual, while egoist is wholly indifferent to feelings of others.

The only viable implementation of concept of freedom in context of interaction between individuals is freedom from external intervention.

It still acts more as a compromise for effective interaction, as it takes in context only direct intervention, which is also inevitable, really, so it is still more a balance of power thing, but the only thing that *could* be called like that nonetheless.

If it were true that reality and truth were subjective then the scientific method would break down. Human beings experience the world subjectively with our senses, however the thing being sensed, can be demonstrated with use of other sensors to exist objectively and independently of the sensor. The universe does not spring into being only when viewed, and 1 always equals 1. The argument for objective morality is much more complicated and difficult to prove. There is an implicit moral set of rules understood in principle among humans that manifests as our concept of fairness. Something can be fair without being equal, and human have a sense of this without being taught.

Scientific method generally ignores this concept, as it cannot say anything about it, it just assumes that this world is real, bout there is really no way to prove that all you see now is not a simulation as we wholly rely on our senses when exploring the world. Neither can be said for sure if you were created by a god a moment ago with all your thoughts and ideas already put in your head. Scientific method does not work with non-falsifiable theories. From our knowledge, it seems to do its function of observing and structuring information about our world quite well, but it does not mean that our knowledge and senses can comprehend it(if it exists) even partially.

>This whole thread, an argument on left/right politics

"There is no 'Right' or 'Left', there is only an 'Up' or a 'Down'." – Ronnie Regan

You people need to realize there is only truthful primatives, then move from there. The concept of Right vs left is a false dictontomy. Personally, I am a National Socialist. The gung-hoe reaction is "Cult of the Right-Wing". This is a false endevor. This is one of the reasons I do not support the "Alt-Right". By naming themselves an Alternative form of the Right-Wing, they have already shown their own ignorance.

You have universal truths independent of the concept of "Right" and "Left". a better model is the "Political Compass", but this is still poor. Once you admit to independent truths, and dismiss the pettyness of the current understanding of "Political Science" (heh) will you be able to truly understand society.

National Socialism is the answer I have come to. It is not a cult of the Right-Wing, and those that hold it as truth, and believe it is are wrong.

And that means that not all individuals are egoists, or individualists, at all. Saying I'm individual therefore i'll call myself egoist is wrong. Egoism has definition, and your unwillingness to comprehend it says you're just another commie who thought Stirner is cool, so he'll add some LARPing into the mix. Helping people and sacrificing yourself in their name or for their cause is not egoist, by definition. Caring about people, supporting them and acting in their interest is not egoist, by definition.

>“Egoism, as Stirner uses it, is not opposed to love nor to thought; it is no enemy of the schway life of love, nor of devotion and sacrifice; it is no enemy of intimate warmth, but it is also no enemy of critique, nor of socialism, nor, in short, of any actual interest. It doesn’t exclude any interest. It is directed against only disinterestedness and the uninteresting; not against love, but against sacred love, not against thought, but against sacred thought, not against socialists, but against sacred socialists, etc.”

– Stirner’s Critics

>“But “the egoist is someone who thinks only of himself!” — This would be someone who doesn’t know and relish all the joys that come from participation with others, i.e., from thinking of others as well, someone who lack countless pleasures — thus a poor sort. But why should this desolate loner be an egoist in comparison to richer sorts? Certainly, for a long time, we were able to get used to considering poverty a disgrace, as a crime, and the sacred socialists have clearly proven that the poor are treated like a criminals. But sacred socialists treat those who are in their eyes contemptibly poor in this way, just as much as the bourgeoisie do it to their poor.

>But why should the person who is poorer with respect to a certain interest be called more egoistic than the one who possesses that interest? Is the oyster more egoistic that the dog; is the Moor more egoistic than the German; is the poor, scorned, Jewish junkman more egoistic than the enthusiastic socialist; is the vandal who destroys artworks for which he feels nothing more egoistic than the art connoisseur who treats the same works with great love and care because he has a feeling and interest for them? And now if someone — we leave it open whether such a one can be shown to exist — doesn’t find any “human” interest in human beings, if he doesn’t know how to appreciate them as human beings, wouldn’t he be a poorer egoist with regard to this interest rather than being, as the enemies of egoism claim, a model of egoism? One who loves a human being is richer, thanks to this love, than another who doesn’t love anyone.”

Well, i meant that market exists any time when 2 or more individuals deal with each other without fighting, so their agreements are the same kind of imposition of power as laws of physics, as it is just the continuation of your current being, with your power, needs and all other stuff.

>not against socialists, but against sacred socialists

Sure, except the whole concept of socialism is about withholding something "sacred" to an individual, be it labor, belief in god, nation, state, altruism or ant other spook. Not just not following it, but enforcing it on the others. Yes, it can be considered egoist in some way, but definitely not in a philosophical one.

>come from participation with others, i.e., from thinking of others as well

Participate with others does not mean "care" about them, as you see them only as toys to play with, and you do not need to break or lose the toys, but there is no "caring" in empathy sense. You seem to confuse https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_egoism with either nihilism or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solipsism. First one is just a statement on a human nature, so it is pointless to call yourself that way, while others are a set of beliefs, or lack thereof, as in nihilism.

And that's where you stop being an egoist, by making moral claims about other people and their way of life. You just created another spook called "value of human life", and your belief in its importance will help you enforce it, but you already are a socialist, with a necessary for any socialist "sacred" value, ready to go annoy people.

Oh I see the problem here. I'm not talking about psychological egoism, I'm talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egoist_anarchism.

The reason I am in favor of a stateless, classless society is because it would directly benefit me. I'm a poorfag, I hate my job and I hate my boss more. Under capitalism I have no choice but to wage slave for him so he can get richer off my labour, my only other option being to find a new master and do the same thing or starve. Of course this is not in my self interest at all, I want to be free associate with whomever I want, and I would prefer to not be forced to work period. What I am not in favor of is Maxism-Lenninism, which seems to be what you think all socialism is. I disagree with the use of a vanguard party to create a revolution, I think it just creates a new bureaucratic ruling class and I'm still fucked. Rather I am in favor of an insurrectionist approach with no hierarchical organization.

Enforcing any collectivist claim needs a sacred value, without it that is worthless. Socialism will not benefit you if you act like a socialist.

Norway isn't communist, but they are socialist. They have a significant social safety net. A large portion of their earnings from oil exports is used exclusively for their national pension fund. Norway is one of the first countries people think of when the phrase "Scandinavian socialism" is mentioned.

The point here is that a socialist system can work for a peaceful pseudo-ethnostate made up of Nordic whites. When the Scandinavian countries have been finally overrun with third world migrants, expect this to change.

That's not socialism, marx nor lenin would have considered a super capitalistic rich state with people riding $100k+ teslas to be socialist just because of free healthcare and college. In fact bismarck had already implemented some of that in late 19th century germany and yet marx who was still alive didn't considered that to be socialism nor did any of his followers

Read das kapital instead of talking shit

And its more likely norway will go to shit when oil runs our or loses against fusion and other tech. No amount of investment returns from that fund would be able to finance the insane expenses of that country, and most of their industry is also oil-related (ie: exploration and tools) so is not like they can rely on that instead

I do not really see how humongous amount of regulation and coercion to force people to do stuff is capitalism unless capitalism means laws of economics, but then these rules would apply anywhere, so i'm missing the point. Also, USSR is also considered "state capitalist" as a little lefty told me.

I've recently had a big epiphany about talking politics online, so this will probably be my last reply don't take it personally.

>Thats called a startup, just find someone who wants to join

I'm not very knowledgeable about this, but isn't the point of a start up to get bought out by a big company? Also startups have to make a profit so you're kind of trapped in pandering to markets. I think a worker co-op would be closer to what I want, maybe mixed with straight up commune.

>Would you be okay with not eating or buying anything too?

This is the problem living under capitalism, the choice is "work or starve" which is not really a choice at all. I would like there to be other options. Also I don't have anything against labor, I work hard on stuff at home all the time that earns me no brouzouf (art, growing food, writing for pleasure etc). Work is forced labor. Being forced to do anything means it's against my self interest or, dare I say it, freedom.

>It is that, what you're talking about is more like an offshot

Now we're just arguing definitions rather than the concepts behind them. This is difficult to avoid in any argument.

>Which would lose against anyone with a hierarchical organization, see the french revolution

We've come a long way since then in terms of technology and guerrilla/urban/asymmetric warfare. Still I don't think "the revolution" is coming around the corner, but I do think it's practical to implement anarchies in small local scales at first. Especially with the coming global environmental change within the next 100 years things are going to get a lot harder for governments and a lot more chances for anarchies to spring up will present themselves.(especially in africa where there's already anti-state, anti-money, pseudo-anarchist though within a lot of traditional tribal structures, mixed with increasing resource scarcity and environmental collapse somethings got to happen. It's really hard to maintain state control when everything is a fucking dessert, no one's gonna sit back and watch you eat while they're starving) [yes I've been reading desert]

Homestead, move out, work anywhere different, go to prison(free food, huh), etc. Are these not options for you?

>Work is forced labor. Being forced to do anything means it's against my self interest or, dare I say it, freedom.

<How can i be free in a world where survival requires a certain amount of labor without forcing other people to do it for me?

>Still I don't think "the revolution" is coming around the corner, but I do think it's practical to implement anarchies in small local scales at first.

Local anarchies exist everywhere the force and coercion are not involved, actually. Every time you go out with friends it works the same way as in "anarchy". It is not a leftist, or collectivist concept, as they picture it as a virtue and enforce it the same way different socialists enforce "kindness", "belief in god" or any other idea that "seems good". The revolution can only happen if there is support of people towards it, which is very unlikely, at least in the first world.

>anti-state, anti-money, pseudo-anarchist

They do not have any progress to benefit with using money, they are gatherers and cannot read. You can call ants the same this way. By the time they need a new supply of AKs brouzouf become necessary, and are used. There are also theocratic islamist states, but it is just as anti-money as christians were when they were in power. Same "greed is evil" argument and strong regulatory polices. You tell me how good they did.

>environmental collapse

Not really, with all these green polices it is highly unlikely for a "collapse" to happen. Change - yes, but not radical, its unlikely it will change anything, if any, it will be used to reinforce the government with new laws and taxes. The ozone hole is shrinking, for example.

>It's really hard to maintain state control when everything is a fucking dessert, no one's gonna sit back and watch you eat while they're starving

Oh, come on. Desert, really? Even in UK or Canada?

You know, the ancap polices and theory often look weird and different because they are designing a viable distributed system, and not wishful thinking. Ever heard of game theory? Creating an environment where Nash equilibrium would be effective is not an easy task.

You really would be better off with reading some actual theory instead of "having epiphany about talking politics".

Not quite. Libertarians generally advocate for a small government, and some libertarians (call them ancaps) want complete demolition of any central governance, and the replacement of the state with capitalism (which may include corporations).

>And history shows that they ally with fascists every time.

Damn, shit got from 0 to 100 very fast. What you said about fascism is completely, 100% wrong, and I can prove it. I will not do so, unless somebody asks me to. Suffice it to say that fascism is more than Italian Fascism or Nazism. But even if fascism meant Nazism, how do libertarians side with that? You said it yourself that

I believe so as well. Scandinavians are fucking awesome. They are generally smart, with good social skills, good work ethic, etc. They create nice, clean, secure cities. I think Scandinavians can make any system work, whether that system is socialism or capitalism. So, when people use Scandinavians as an example of a successful socialist state, they are being very dishonest IMO. Scandinavians are a homogeneous people with a lot of wealth (from capitalist activities, and the USA). Stop using it as an example of successful socialism.
