Welcome to /leftcel/ a place for leftist incels. Over the course of the lifetime of this board I hope for this board to be a clearing house for leftist ideology and to explore the negative effect that capitalism has on the lives of men. I plan on moderating this board in the same style as the original /leftypol/ on the now defunct 8chan, which is to say as permissively as possible.
This will include pointed critique of feminism. Currently, there is no real criticism of feminism from a leftist point of view online. It's all either liberal or right wing in nature.
I hope to change that and open the eyes of men everywhere to how capitalism is harming their sex.
I welcome any bantz about dating, women, feminism that are generally banned in leftist spaces. Also Anarchists, Trots, Leftcoms and even Liberals and Marxists-Leninists are welcome and not only allowed to have sectarian fights, but encouraged to do so. Bring your best arguments as to why your ideology is THE ONE TRUE WAY and let our lurkers decide for themselves who's right.
If you'd like our mods to ban trolling in your thread because you'd like to have a serious or civil conversation, simply add "no bully" to the end your OP. If you're okay with some shitposting or insults end your OP with "some bully". And if you don't care, simply don't add any thing at all.
Only Nazis, Strasserists and Nazbols are banned. Although dissection of their ideology is okay.
Please note this board is ultimately owned by Josh Conner Moon of Kiwifarms, a known fascist sympathizer. Please assume any and all posts and metadata are being collected by him. I highly encourage all posters to use the Tor Browser to post on here. Ideally I'd like to see all posts with the 000000 thread Id.

Welcome and enjoy!
It wouldn't let me edit the original welcome post for some reason, that's why I had to post a duplicate

Change my mind

Violence is ok, the weak must surrender and obey or die.

The more violent someone is, the more violence he can sustain, the more right he is.

>Morality is relative, the strong decides what is right or wrong.
>Moral people are weak (the religious and humanists)

examples

If the strong(tranny) rapes(incels) then it's ok, so long as he can maintain his rule.

Slavery only becomes wrong when the strong says so

Evidence 1 :
the fall of fascist Italy and Nazi Germany

They(the rightwing) were weak and unable to commit enough violence and maintain it, meanwhile the Soviet union under the glorious leadership of joseph stalin was able to maintain it's territory and even expand it. What makes them different?, hitler was a drawfag who was unable to kill enough jews and russians while mussolini put his penis in a jewish woman and did not kill enough ethiopians. The glorious leader Joseph stalin with iron fist and efficient GULAG system was able to slaughter them both, eradicate all reactionary elements in the USSR and scare the west to this day all thanks to his over-the-top violence.

Evidence 2 :
Victory of violent abrahamic/pagan religions
As machiavelli said all unarmed prophets ded while armed prophets kicked ass

Take the example of Mohammed, a literal warlord. Today atleast 1billion humans consider themselves muslims and follow his faith.

Take the example of Christ, though it does not seem obvious. But christianity is as violent as islam, sure christ got cucked on a stick. But the Romans and europeans who embraced the christian faith were not as friendly to heretics as christ was.(more than a billion people are christcucks)

Jews too, before becoming scheming merchants were violent warriors. (notice how the less violent they became, the more persecuted they became)

Push for Trannies to get Womb Implants

Now that trannies can get womb implants and actually carry babies to term, there's a push to make this practice more wide spread and even subsidize it with government dollars.
Will this be the things that utterly BTFO's the roasties. Without a monopoly on birthing new humans, what leverage would women have over low status males?
Sex can be purchased and now a biological child can be had by men on their own.
I think the first thing is that the welfare state will disappear for women. Right now single men pay for the children of single mothers because only women can have children via tax dollars. What happens when single fathers start having children out of wedlock and young single women see a decline in their purchasing power now that some of the cost of the welfare state will be shifted onto them.
I don't believe the majority of men will do this, but as the 3 percent rule goes (i.e. if 3 percent of a population does something or wants something, it usually happens) it would only take 3 percent of low status males doing this before the whole oppressive relationship gender dynamic we have now is up ended.
Women would have to dramatically improve in value to men if men could potentially have their own children. In the same way men have to have an incredible high value to women now to be able to sire and maintain custody of children. Simply having a good character won't be enough.

This is an excellent article about why dating has become so toxic to poor men. It was titled the "Misandry Bubble". It outlines all of the changes that the state and capitalist superstructure made that give women so much leverage over men currently.
All except with the exception of the inclusion of women in the workforce and contraception, constitute state violence against men for the interests of women, and the state. No-fault divorce and a hostile feminist culture that influences people to treat men as disposable, keep men extremely precarious and make men into debt serfs to women, which gives women a material incentive to maintain this oppressive system against their fellow male proles.

As far why contraception isn't effecting incels necessarily, it's because women are not using contraception to prevent out of wedlock births. As evidenced by the fact that over half of newborns are born to single mothers. And I don't think women are using contraception within marriages, although I have heard plenty of anecdotes online where women are telling their husbands they don't want to conceive with them, either because they already have a child from another man, they want to conceive with some other man, or they flat out say they don't have to have children with their husband. Women are simply not having sex with low status men, and conceiving children with "Chad" out of wedlock, since with the welfare state, they don't have to tolerate a male that doesn't raise their socioeconomic status.

What is fascism?

This is a copy pasta from bunkerchan by Nihilist poster. I'm reposting it here because I thought it was an excellent summary of not just fascism, but why so many fascists have socialist pasts.

He was laughable banned by a bunkerchan mod for this.

Mussolini was formerly a Marxist who dabbled in some anarchism and was drawn into the national syndicalist / Italian futurist / fascist milieux, which originated straight out of some increasingly anti-Marxist leftist activities, and went with it. He did so because he began to believe that the socialist and "Communist" left could not fundamentally solve the social problems he saw and criticised Marxists for fundamentally investing themselves in a stillborn social project that tried to abolish the structural and systemic preconditions for social problems despite those preconditions being constitutive of societies in various forms and modes since the beginning of human history. In other words, the fascist critique was that the socialist/communist/Marxist left was trying to radically transform society to solve the social problems they diagnosed rather than try to solve them within the frameworks humans have lived in for millennia -- framed thus, fascism was almost a pragmatic or realpolitik response to the perceived radicalism and utopianism to their left. This was during a time when fascism was a nascent political movement in Italy comprising national syndicalists, national socialists (not Nazis, more like the Strasser brothers or Goebbels except without the monomaniacal antisemitism), and futurists, not the big bogeyman it is now (rightly) treated as being. Eventually, one thing led to another and the fascists (with Mussolini) basically made some deals with capitalists, especially financial capitalists in the urban centers (though also with some rural capitalists and the remaining landed aristocracy) to secure power by protecting their interests. They did this because they believed that they could then facilitate collaboration between the classes and negotiate the interests of all involved to the benefit of all involved without doing away with class or hierarchy, all of which would be administered through a totalitarian state apparatus. They then sought to win over the working masses with populist reforms that ameliorated their conditions and protected their rights, albeit much to the chagrin of these capitalists (who would be stuck paying for them). This had limited success, but did set the stage for the "passive revolution" of fascism that Gramsci noted. This was not entirely the case, though, because while this may have been the position of some early fascist intellectuals and ideologues, many of the nominal fascists who got involved, ran the show, and recruited the blackshirts were effectively just bourgeois opportunists using fascism to defend capitalism against these insurgent leftist activities in the region and abroad and build up Italy through a war economy. Some fascist critiques of Mussolini himself was that he was basically co-opted and recuperated by these forces into functioning as a bourgeois tool; some of this decisions and policies, especially the appeasement and deference he showed to finance capital in them, lend support to this.

Is transgender activism an attack on men

It's easy to see why so many men find transgenderism appealing. They're treated like disposable trash most of their lives if they are in the bottom 80% of males. Receive zero sympathy for any type of suffering and are blamed for their own victimization. Then when they express any type of interest in transitioning to being a woman, sudden they are showered in affection and acceptance by society at large, often for the first time in their lives. It's no coincidence that there are far more male to female trannies than female to male ones.
Passively pressuring young men to destroy an entire organ of their body is dehumanizing because transgenderism is dehumanizing. This is because it denies that the body is a part of being a human. That you can reject something as integral to your body as your sex and still be human. That you don't really need your sex i.e. your body and that your real essence is in your mind.
We've known since ancient times that you body and mind are deeply intertwined in ways we still don't fully understand. Your body has profound impacts on your mind, and visa versa. Like ying and yang they two parts of a whole.
When young men transition they are turned into eunuchs, docile and easily manipulated. Their former agency has been destroyed. Liberals know this, which is why they are so eager to support trans activism. Ironically in a way that will create more trannies, and generally not in any way that would materially benefit them like legislation that would protect them from housing discrimination, although there are some exceptions.
While some trannies play an active role in this, my feeling is that many of them are simply stooges and dead enders that are falling for the sunk cost fallacy. Trannies can never fully transition back, so to admit that transitioning was a mistake would require them to reconcile that they were fooled in altering their life's path forever.
Trannies shouldn't be targeted for harassment because of this, but leftist must recognize their crypto eugenic agenda.

Trannies and the Left

Alright folks
Let’s admit it
We’ve got a fucking problem with troons on the Left
It was bad enough when radlibs suffocated Marxism and anarchism in idpol bullshit, but this is by far the most cancerous forms of idpol
The idpol of fighting for the rights of men to make the world believe they are women
It is beyond a fucking insane position, and consequently most troons are insane
Once these people become the center of your movement their mind bending cancer warps it into sex obsessed autistic nothingness when you’re shrieking about the rights of hideous dudes in dresses to be legally and socially recognized as QT anime bimbos
And obviously normies look on and say “wtf.....”
These people will deny their obsession with troons, and yet they refuse to stfu about them
Right now I’m listening to a podcast where all of it was excellent until the end when they start rambling about the “transgender vanguard”
What the utter shit?
Troon vanguard, seriously?
The people that are suicidal because reality denies their desire?
Why has this insane degeneracy become an obsession of the Left?
It’s not like gay people who just wanted the right to love openly and otherwise be Left alone
It’s not like black people and women who wanted equal civil rights to white men
No, it’s quite literally all about warping people’s perception to believe that men are women and if you can’t make people THINK this you sure as shit can force them to say it
It’s a movement premised in taking away people’s right to hold their own opinion to accommodate people who are damn near schizophrenic
And at a time when the world is basically fucking DYING and on the verge of war, centering these weirdos and not class politics is not only insane but suicidal
Wtf will it take for the Left to move on from troons?

Single Mothers have devistated the Porlitariat.

Here's the killshot, single mothers predict how bad crime is in an area NOT POVERTY!

>The proportion of single-parent households in a community predicts its rate of violent crime and burglary, but the community’s poverty level does not. Source: D.A. Smith and G.R. Jarjoura, “Social Structure and Criminal Victimization,” Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency 25. 1988.”

This alone should repudiate feminism in the minds of anyone, left or right. And the high single motherhood rate is the direct result of feminists' sexual revolution that encourages women to be pernicious which inevitably leads to bastards.
Anyone that's traveled outside of the US can attest to this finding. While no poor area of a city or town is safe. They are not these Falluja style war zones that say Baltimore is.
Eliminating single mothers goes a long long way to eliminating poverty for workers. And it's in the best interest of children, which feminists and women pretend to care about.
These studies were aggregated on https://www.fixfamilycourts.com/single-mother-home-statistics. Here are a few other highlights

Feminists jelly of teens, want men jailed for boning them

It has been proven by so many studies that men prefer women in their late teens and early 20s. This includes men in their 30s and older however many women spend their 20s on the cock carousel plus pursuing worthless careers rather than marrying a stable guy starting a family. They waste their youth on sex and the city lifestyles then when they are finally really to settle down, the type of men they want would obviously prefer women in their early 20s or even late teens. This is natural and logical as these women are most likely to provide healthy babies whereas post-wall women in their 30s are used up, bitter over getting rejected by chads and having to "settle" for the nerds they rejected throughout their 20s. They bitterly resent successful men such as Leonardo Dicaprio rejecting women his age as it is well know any man with high status wants young, beautiful girls. These men do not care about their careers but their youth and beauty so it makes them realise how worthless they are.

Paedophilia means pre-pubescent so it disturbs me how it is just thrown about. A 30 year old man dating an 17 or 18 year old isnt paedophilia. These same people probably had grandparents with these age gaps. My own grandmother had my father at 16 and she must have married at 14. My grandfather must have been around 19. Throughout human history, puberty meant a girl was ready for marriage. The fact that they are now saying 18 year old dating a 30 year old man is paedophilia is absurd and clearly a sign of feminist jealousy as they know they are competing with girls that offer more to high-status males. I personally wouldnt go for high school girls but I understand men that do as this is peak female beauty and natural.

Will the West have to pay Reparations?

The position of you guys on the left over here seems to be that the difference in conditions and wages around the world is because of imperialism primarily.

So will the west be required to pay reparations after we establish socialism? Wouldn't most of the redistributed wealth go from me and my nation to people in the third world since they are so much poorer than the American working class? Won't all the industry development happen in Africa?

If the first world worker benefits from imperialism, wouldn't my wages go down? wIf yes, why should I support socialism? I'm a prole in AMERICA, I'm basically on top of the world and you want to take my nations wealth and give it to some other nations I've never been to.

No, white people are NOT proletariat.

No, whites in Amerika are not proletarian.

The simple fact is this. Whites in Amerika have been given a bribe to hold down the land of Amerika and mantain the internal colonization of the black and chicano nation through their widespread racism. It is this social contract between the white bourgoise and the white workers that allows whites to gain wages much higher than the black workers, because the super exploitation of the black population means that the white workers as a whole are net-exploiters who consume more than the value of their labor.

They are just like the Jews in Israel or the Whites in South Africa. Complicit pawns and beneficiaries of colonial oppression, given enough of a kickback from the oppression to push them, by and large, outside the proletarian class.

There are white proletarians. The unlucky, the stupid and the various others that fall out of classical white society for whatever reason. They are rare, but they do exist. The possibility of becoming a labor aristocrat however, and the integration of income levels within the white community, with poor whites and middle class whites living more or less side by side, means their consciousness is inherently corrupted. Their highest ambition is never liberation but rather a climb out of their condition, which they can much more easily due thanks to their settler privilege.

So no, white people are not proletariat by and large. I'm not saying that the individual settler can't grow a heart, but I find it extremely unlikely that the vast majority of the settler white working class will ever do anything but struggle for the return of their bribe and the continued oppression of the internally colonized people below them.

Democratic Schools

One of the reasons why we have so many maladjusted adults, particularly males, is because of compulsory education.
The average public school is hell for a poor and or ugly students. You are the constant target of bullying, both physical and emotional, and the classes themselves don't teach anything but how to pass their increasingly byzantine tests.
Most of the school shooters in recent years were revealed to have been subject to some extreme bullying. But for every school shooter there are millions of students (mostly men) that just sucked up the abuse only for it to manifest itself in self destructive behaviors like addition.

How many of you didn't pay rent last month? The news is that 1/3 of all renters didn't pay their rent this month. So I know at least some of you didn't.
Did you do it as part of a collective action with your neighbors? Or were you just to broke to pay, and your withholding of rent wasn't a part of any praxis.
Me, I still paid rent. I tried to organize a tenants union last year before the Corona virus broke out. But it was absolutely an uphill battle. There was some interst but most people were at best apathetic to the idea. I got some contact info, but I'm not sure if I'll use it. I gave them all my phone number and got contacted by exactly no one.
Share your experiences.

Jason Unruhe just put up a video about the disaster that the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) became.
I haven't been keeping up, is this true? Did it all almost fall apart immediately because a tranny was elected leader, then went on a hours long tirade against white people on social media instead of... uh... building a commune. Then when he/she/it/they were criticized for being racist, like a sociopath, threatened to kill themselves, only to pop up awhile later perfectly fine.
I have to admit, that kind of mentally ill behavior is displayed regularly at bunkerchan. It's eerie how close my own experiences with bunkerchan anons are with what happened at CHAZ.
What does this all mean? Are trannies actually mentally ill and should be blocked from positions of leadership in leftist projects? Are there too many narcissistic social media addicts on the left to make anything real happen? Is it these same, young, attention starved leftist that are the real thing holding back the left and not idpol?
It seems to have caused a huge fight over on bunkerchan. I can image that the mods probably took the side of the dysfunctional tranny leader.

Incel vs. Chad arab tribe Koran

"The tribe of Tsam were the posterity of Lud the son of Sem, and Jadis of the descendants of Jether. These two tribes dwelt promiscuously together under the government of Tasm, till a certain tyrant made a law that no maid of the tribe of Jadis should marry unless first defloured by him; which the Jadisians not enduring, formed a conspiracy, and inviting the king and chiefs of Tsam to an entertainment, privately hid their swords in the sand, and in the mist of their mirth fell on them and slew them all, and extirpated the greatest part of that tribe; however, the few who escaped obtaining aid of the king of Yaman, assulted the Jadis and utterly destroyed them, there being scarce any mention from that time of either of these tribes.

How do we do multi-racial unionism right?

We can see the same pattern in so many unions, but for the purpose a short thread, I will focus on coal and steel.

Coal - Coal started out pretty good. The United Mine Workers of America were very racially egalitarian is membership, internal organization and rhetoric. There were of course labor aristocrats at the top who tried to betray this, but white and black workers alike mostly kept them in check. However, the union ultimately failed. As the industry began automating heavily after World War II, the union did not defend the interests of its black members. When their manual jobs were eliminated in greater proportion than those of whites, the union did not demand that they have priority in gaining newly created jobs over recently hired, lower-seniority whites. This allowed black workers to be pushed out of the industry entirely, and it wasn't until the 1960s that they fought and won seniority-rights.

Steel - Again, started out well. Heavy involvement by the Communist party and lots of racially egalitarian rhetoric and organizing. They even had white workers going around and fighting to desegregate swimming pools, restaurants and more, and this was the 1930s. But once organization was completely, this mostly stopped and there was little to no fight for breaking up the job and hiring discrimination within the steel plants. Communists who pushed for it were forced out and the Union was made incredibly bureaucratic. It eventually dropped its anti-racist stance and enforced discrimination which was eventually ruled unlawful.

Auto - The auto industry had a lot more rank and file democracy, so the abandonment of egalitarianism wasn't quite so dramatic. Black workers supported Communist caucuses within the union, while whites supported the Social-Democratic leadership. The Communists fought for blacks to be allowed jobs other than janitor, but the social-democratic whites did not support this cause. Eventually the Communists were ejected.

If you look at unions that stayed true to their cause, they eventually had to abandon racial solidarity in the other direction. Communist led unions were almost always majority black.

So what do we learn from this? Is it still relevant in the modern day? How do we do multi-racial organization properly?

Blackpill Sience

Post here proof that debunks the anti mail hate speech that feminists spew.
I'll start:
Men are raped as much as women.

Over any given 12 month period, it's rare for there to be more then a 10% difference between the two. There are still more male rapists due to higher rates of male-on-male rape compared to female-on-female rape, but neither stat is very high in absolute terms. Contrary to what you've probably heard in the past, most men are not raped by other men. ~80% are raped by women. And more men in total are raped every year than women, making sexual assault more of a men's issue than a women's issue.

Lifetime stats follow this as well, but not as closely. Those stats include all forms of sexual abuse, including things like flashing and groping, and they are less accurate than yearly stats for a number of reasons. The largest being because men, over time, will reframe a rape as consensual due to gender norms (everyone telling him he was "lucky", like if a teacher did it)... speculation is that women may do the opposite, thus moving their stat in the opposite direction. But even the official, unfiltered lifetime stat isn't that far off: 1 in 4 for women and 1 in 6 for men.

Why is this not very well known?

Several decades ago, an early gender studies "researcher" named Mary Koss proposed that a person "forced to penetrate" another person is not in fact raped. She called it unwanted sexual contact and she was very successful in convincing academics and even lawmakers to adopt this definition. While technically it is gender neutral, due to the anatomical differences between men and women, it mainly applied to men. Her rationale was that men must "want it" or are "asking for it" so it doesn't count.

As a result, the true rate of sexual assault against men is usually hidden in official statistics. Instead of rape, they call it "made to penetrate". And many state and national laws around the world similarly define rape in gendered terms, meaning female rapists avoid prosecution and generally don't get discussed in the media. This has led to decades of misinformation on the topic. And it has only just recently started getting attention, both on the legal front, and among academics.

Unpopular? Definitely.

Factual? Absolutely.

Inconvenient? Maybe if you're sexist. That is in fact likely the motivation behind people who try to deny it (I'm looking at you, Mary Koss).

Practical Praxis

This tread is for simple and easy things people can do to fight capitalism.
I'd like to limit it to things that take no more than a few days, and don't more that a high school education.
I'll start with this app called "Do Not Pay". This will help you automatically sue any telemarketers or debt collectors that illegally call you.
A lot of times these debt collectors or telemarkerts will try to avoid identifying who exactly they are working for because they know they can get sued.
To get around that this app provides a fake Credit Card number that you can give them. When they charge against the fake card, you can get the actual name of their business and start a lawsuit in small claims court against them.
Learning how to use the small claims court in your town is really useful to. Without even suing I was able to recover $600 for my girlfriend from a gym, and I was able to get $1000 in diminished value from a car insurance company.
Share your ideas for practical praxis here. BTW praxis simply means, ways that you bring your beliefs to life.

Anoncels should I just go gay?

I can feel the testosterone in my body deminishing every day and barely functioning, every time I try to lift weights my muscles dont grow. I have a feminine body for a male, and I barely have any testosterone in my to fight anyone without feeling like a thousand nerves in me are ticking off. The only thing I do is look at rainbow colored furries and anime girls all day long. Im so conditioned to furries that everytime I visualize a generic women she usually has a snout, cat ears, and fur all over. I am so perverted that I see all women as potential fuck buddies.
Should I just turn GAY or ROPE? No, women has ever given me the lusty eyes, or cat called me. I am practicially an asexual eunuch in the eyes of women and any women that ever shows interest in me would most likely fake it because they are gold digging. The only way I can cope with all of this is by browsing furaffinity and looking at all the rainbow colored anthros but even then this doesnt satisfy me. I want physical contact and the way I see it that the only way that a small dick, scrawny, skinny, short male can get laid is by being a submissive bottom to a fat hairy faggot. Not even troons will want me. The worst part is that I cant get it hard for men, especially not masculine ones. It is either that or the rope. What should be my fate anons? I just cant cope with being a lonely virgin faggot anymore, my parents want me to marry but we a know that marriage culture and monogamy has died out in the modern younger generations, and the only men getting action with women are either rich beta males, strong, attractive, and big dicked alpha males. And then anti weebs wonder why so many young men are buying anime body pillows. There is just no hope for the average male from the younger generations, we all have to fap to hentai or be sexually starved and deprived. WTF help oldfag anons, prostitutes dont interest me because I can tell that the women are faking the interest in me and only want to get the money and be done with it and that hurts my soul.

Mods, this isn't bait, this is a long effort post to try and make sense of race and class in the united states, please don't delete this or bad me.

Recently I have been reading a few things from J. Sakai, Noel Ignatiev and a few others and it has led me to have major questions about the problems of race and class in the USA and specifically the pantherist idea of organizing white workers.

The way I understand racism is pretty much the same as Ted Allen. Racism is a ruling class structure of social control that is meant to divide the workers by creating a material difference between them and using one section of the working class to police the other. In many ways, the situation is similar to the conflict between the Irish and British workers that Marx talked about. The two are pitted against each other, and this material division halts unity within the working class and is encouraged by the ruling class. Marx says that essentially, the emancipation of Ireland and the destruction of the division is the only way that the British working class can free itself and must thus be a core concern of the British working class. He explicitly compares the situation to that of the “poor white” and and the former slave in the Southern USA and I think he means to imply that the situation requires the same solution, he is essentially saying that just as the British worker must fight to liberate Ireland, the white worker must fight to liberate the black worker, not just as some sort of charity, but because it is the only way the white worker can be free. As Marx said, Labor in white skin cannot emancipate itself where the black skin is branded.

But has this sort of unity ever really happened? There was certainly not a great outpouring of British support for the IRA. The Irish more or less had to liberate themselves, and the same can be said for every movement towards black liberation in modern American history. Did a major portion of white workers support civil rights? The black power movement? I can’t find any case in American history where this sort of unity has occurred on a large scale.

There are always exceptions. The Young Patriots and the IWW are commonly cited large scale rebellions by whites against racism and for internationalism and working class solidarity. Largely however, the IWW and the Young Patriots were composed not of whites, but of recent immigrants (either to America or to Chicago) who had not yet been integrated into whiteness. Solidarity could be found because the Italians in the IWW or the Appalachians in Chicago didn’t get much benefit out of white supremacy.

But that is not the case for most white workers in the modern day. The benefits of white supremacy for them are enormous. With the disorganization of the black community and discrimination on every levle of society stopping black people from economic advancing, whites are able to maintain a monopoly on nearly all high paying jobs while black people are maintained as a sort of underclass, disproportionately occupying places within the Lumpen proletariat, the low paying proletarian and the reserve army of labor. Because of this discrimination, white workers are allowed better jobs and higher pay due to a lack of competition from a decent section of the population. The discrimination serves the same purpose whether it is de facto or de jure.

Capitalism causes Addiciton, not Drugs

The "Rat Park Experiment" that generally drugs are not addictive. It's capitalist atomization that leads people into becoming addicts.
When the rats that were socialized in a rat community in the "Rat Park Experiment" even when given the hardest drugs the rats did not succumb to addiction.
While the isolated rats immediately became addicts.
This breakthrough was never researched further likely because it would undermine profitable drug based treatment for addicts.

The left at large needs a new view on masculinity. I only really see three. The first is that masculinity is inherently toxic, this is wrong and also obviously not a recipe for winning anything. A revolution needs warriors whether you like it or not. The second is that masculinity is not inherently toxic, but qualities like aggression and an urge to dominate can make it toxic. This is halfway true, both of these things can be toxic, but they are no more inherently so than masculinity itself, what makes them toxic is punching down and dominating those who would not dominate you. Again, this view is not a recipe for revolution, I don't care how big masculine leftists are, we're still not getting anywhere if they're all a bunch of gentle giants. The third view I see is that there are no problems whatsoever with masculinity or aggression and the need to dominate at all, this is what a lot of the self-proclaimed "dirtbag left" espouses and is essentially just an excuse to keep punching down and feeling like a big guy when you're not. The interpretation that the left needs to adopt is that masculinity is not inherently toxic, nor are the qualities often ascribed to toxic masculinity, BUT those qualities must not be used against the weak. Masculine leftists fighting and dominating masculine reactionaries is revolutionary because those same reactionaries would seek to do the same. Masculine leftists turning their need to dominate on the meek and disabled is absolutely not revolutionary. Heroes punch up, villains punch down, always remember that.

"Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat"

Or in other words, why white people are not revolutionary.
The point of the book is that this was not a “spook” or that race is an idea that we as a society subjugate ourselves to, the point is that there is and was a material benefit to racism for primarily the white lower (read, non-bourgeois) class.
The book traces back the very origins of America to the uncomfortable fact that America has not and never could exist without genocide, imperialism, and slavery in some form, not just as in America itself but also the mass of people. Furthermore the book goes with Harry Haywood’s and the old CPSU’s understanding of black nationhood and the concept of internal colonialism, if anything the book argues that if racism is a spook it is a spook that masks colonialism and colonialism is indeed something that would benefit the colonizing group.
The end of the book is about white labor losing their colonizer status in the 60s - 80s and being tossed off to the gutter to rot in the neoliberal deindustrialized hell.

One of the major reasons why ancient civilizations enforced monogamous marriage was to protect the long term interests of women, and therefore, their society.
After women exit their prime birthing years (16-25), they become huge liabilities to both their partners and society. During this time would be the point that men, (who's ability to sell their labor doesn't diminish until their 50+) would be most tempted to leave, so the institution of marriage was borne to satisfy the needs of these women, and to show younger women that said society had their own best interests at heart (if they didn't these younger women would abandon the social order, much like men are doing now).
The welfare state replaced the role of bread winner for modern women, and men became bigger liabilities then they were worth (these men still pay for the needs of these women via taxes none the less, but have no claim to these women or their children). But the welfare state is very fragile as proven last year when foods stamps when nearly unfunded when democrats and republicans couldn't agree on a spending bill, and if the welfare state is ever really shut down, then millions of women and children will become destitute over night. This will be the real legacy of feminism.
As ancient civilizations realized millennia ago, no one, not the state, not the woman's family, and not what ever community she resides in, will have a greater vested material interest in a woman's welfare than the biological father of her children and or her husband.
As such society can neglect the welfare of these same women to staggering levels and still not see any revolutionary backlash.
But the Corona Virus will shut down the welfare. It's stopping the production of trillions in commodities already, and shows no sign of stopping. When the effects of that are begun to be felt, the first people to be abandoned by the state will be welfare recipients. And without husbands, these women will truly be "independent" and many will die as a result. These women will essentially live as men.
The idea that women are the fairer sex will be thrown out the window as women murder their children and infants in a narcissistic bid to stay alive. Younger generations will see this a repudiate feminism and embrace the traditional roles males played in the past (when the state was much wearker).

Has anyone seen any significant price drops. I also heard from an anon that real estate agents expect to see 10%-15% drops very soon as homes of deceased COVID-19 patients are but on the market. Since these homes tend to be paid, and the surviving children tend to not want to keep the home, they are willing to market it down to make a quick sale. With so many homes being marked down for that reason, it will put downward pressure on prices.
Others I've seen, have said house prices won't fall dramatically because large hedge funds are already positioning themselves to buy these cheap homes up in cash.
