Honestly the sad thing is any form of anarchism is doomed to failure whenever you retain a societal superstructure above 200-250 people. As for the markets it's a pipe dream. Anyone who's played a game of poker should have realized this by now because the accumulation of capital will always become concentrated with a small group using it to seize power over others.

This is the thing that I think most bydlo fail to understand which is that the moment you get beyond the basic necessities and a few luxury goods it's chiefly a matter of power. Maybe if you're a millionaire it's not but when we're talking about having ten, twenty million dollars, it's less and less about the money and by the time you're into the hundreds of millions has nothing to do with the money at all.

The system itself will always be subject to it's own entropy. There is no natural homeostasis to a radical free market.

Why does it need to be bigger? The point isn't to make an anarchist anything, it's to tear down the existing monopolisation of power that is the state.

>Anyone who's played a game of poker should have realized this by now because the accumulation of capital will always become concentrated with a small group using it to seize power over others.
Except Poker itself is based on big-C Capitlist principle of zero-sum interaction, while the Market is not by its nature, zero-sum. A market does not exist outside of those who participate, so if the people exclude predatory practice from their market, then their market is not predatory. If a market uses non-Capitalist methods of valuation including things like need as mitigating factors in trade then it moves towards a socialistic market. It's a common misconception that Market and Capitalism are the same thing, but they are not. This is what is meant when Market Liberals talk about disliking Capitalism. The other advantage of Revolutionary philosophy over reformist philosophy is the willingness to overthrow something that establishes itself as a tyrant. Using the Poker analogy, it'd be if the rest of the table instead decided to play snap, and the poker guy wanted to keep taking everyone's money. It's play snap or get out.

All you need is two villages to pool their forces under one warlord and the process of state formation will begin anew.

This is how it all started in the first place, after all. Human societies underwent a process of Darwinian selection, whereby the more militarily capable ones conquered the others. Usually, that meant the large conquered the small, and over time this meant that led to human societies progressing up the ladder of size, complexity, and tyranny.

Anarchism can only work if we all go back to being hunter-gatherers. I have yet to see a convincing argument as to how it's supposed to work otherwise.

I definitely don't feel right but I don't have a fever. I've had fatigue, nonstop chills, and getting winded by the weirdest simplest shit and now the lower part of my right lung is starting to hurt. It feels like I cant breathe at work. I'm going to try getting tested but I'm still as frightened of the potential medical bills. I guess on the plus side the worst case scenario other than death which is probably unlikely is that I either get ordered to avoid people and not go to work or go anywhere, or that it turns out I had some different problem. It feels really eerily similar to the early parts of Lyme disease though. I'm fine as long as I don't exert myself at all and try to avoid smoking except some shortness of breath and feeling like absolute garbage in the morning and being uncomfortable at night.

>unironically linking to /pol/
I am half tempted to make some 4krebs tier shitpost about your "digits." Just imagine that. People so fucking dumb that a post ending in 33 is enough to use as part of "argument" why not to pay attention.

Anyway it's a well known fact that the FBI and other alphabet soup agencies had compromised most imageboards. From what I can gather the Canadian national boards admin had also been approached by the feds, much like the movie Hackers had always implicated happens. moot himself probably got backed off by the feds around the messing with football incident and by around 2008 it was likely nothing but false flags and unofficially run by The Man. For example it had always struck me how shit like YouTube Porn Day was the perfect way for them to force censorship and mass surveillance on us via false flags. They tried doing the same for porn bans. I'm not even entirely sure why they hate porn so much in particular tbh but do know that, who was it insex? Some bondage site got shut down by Bush era antiterrorism laws.

But anyways yeah this has been known for awhile and the irony is that while poltard shills are literally stupid enough not to notice the fact their entire board is nothing but an establishment propaganda vehicle while thinking themselves "red pilled" about COINTELPRO type stuff, at the same time they are too dumb to be effectual as your link shows. They're dumb enough to fuck things up constantly. In fact the Pizza palace shooting I'd almost say was deliberately done by the elites had I not known better that yes indeed they're stupid enough to fuck things up like that, just like they were stupid enough to fuck up the UTR rally. I have mostly ever seen them accomplish the exact opposite of their stated aims, and in the case of elite pedophiles my suspicion is that pizzagate was entirely a manufactured thing to distract attention away from the real pedonetwork while leaving poltards to their own devices so they could eventually sabotage pizzagate itself thus silencing any later discussions.

We can't say for certain they're not used by the elite.

I’m in some idiotic department store again, with my friend looking at headphones. It’s not a gaudy looking mall at least, it’s street level and well lit but still there’s nothing to do but consume. I leave my friend to whatever he’s up to and motion towards the clothing aisle where Trotsky is looking at a Guayabera. He shows it to me “Look, you think this’ll do?” Is he foreshadowing his move to Latin America with this? His hair is already white, it must be time. He reverses the shirt and shows me the label “JF” in stylised letters with the smaller text saying “Jomon Faudi”. But it won’t do. “Leva, you won’t stop being recognisable just because you have changed your style. You haven’t even shaved off your goatee yet.” I also haven’t parted with my facial hair, even though it’s getting ridiculous. “You need to stop wasting time with this shit and move to Mexico”. I know what’s going to happen to him in Mexico, but we all have to play our parts in history. It’s more interesting than Spain anyway. The track on the store speakers change: "Here's to you Nicola and Bart..."

I see that right next to us my friend managed to get a seat in the cafe section right next to us, just a few metres away. We both sit down and I keep yammering Trotsky on what he needs to do - and I add “Look, we’re trying to help you we’re not the fucking Spanish Inquisition”. At that instant I look at my left and standing next to us is… the Spanish Inquisition. They are wearing blue though. I say hi, but they appear to ignore both me and Trotsky - when my friend says Hola they do get talking, I guess they don’t give a fuck about two foreigners. My faceless friend motions to his wallets, and seeing what he does I mimic him and give the dudes a $2 silver coin from my pocket. Of course, religion has become a travesty of itself and it’s no surprise the ominously dressed dudes were in fact just begging for money under the excuse of some charity or whatever. For the “donation” they give us the fried pieces of chicken they’re selling - it’s just a tiny strip of breaded chicken, but anyway it’s in front of me and I’ll eat it. I taste it and it’s the exact same taste as the perfectly fried pork cutlet I had in that Michelin starred tonkotsu place in Tokyo. I inhale the aroma and feel that just so slightly vinegary apple sauce contrasting with the perfectly crisp meat on my tongue.

This is literally a book in blog-post form, but very worth reading if you want a deep overview of the problems facing the whole Middle East right now, including ISIS.

One important point is that ISIS is a result of the death of the old Middle East. The uneasy convivencia of Ottoman times is impossible in the era of nation states and uprooted social lives and communities. And ISIS may be gone for now, but millions of young dumb listless Sunni men are going to watch the humiliating last days of the Caliphate, all caught on video, and feel pangs of shame at seeing men who actually believed in something (something that placed THEM at the center of the universe) crushed so utterly while they did nothing. And when the next great crisis happens and ISIS 2.0 appears, it'll be more powerful than before.

The ISIS is funded the CIA/Mossad is a meme. All their American equipment was captured from incompetent Iraqis.

Extremely brave, highly motivated soldiers. Much braver than any modern state military.

Their use of SVBIEDs as a poor man's airstrikes was effective and imaginative. I expect we'll see other, non-Salafist insurgents use them in the future.

Attacking every other faction in Iraq and Syria was ultimately a poor move. I also think terror tactics hurt them more that helped them.

Honestly I always thought that was like looking into a spooky mirror, like what honestly I could imagine someone like me ending up being like had they had their own house bombed out and instead of the Gospel having a lot of repetitive bullshit drilled into their head by the local Imam about some warlord. The thing about all that is, it's actually partly what made ISIS so effective against at least us because they were not a totally unintelligent or irrational actor in the typical sense, who truly had that capacity for being smart and careful analysis, but who at the same time were also extremely not a rational actor in that classic sense. See that is the thing that I have seen my country's political and military leadership routinely in a place where I know I could run circles around these damn fools. It was like it seriously never even occurred to any of them that you could not negotiate with somebody like ISIS or that these people did not in fact want a kind of state in the way that an actual political actor normally would, and that is why they spailed so fucking spectacularly to engage them.

What ISIS was was a fanatical death cult and I could have at least respected them for that. I actually also think that it was incredibly telling about how few actual devoutly religious people we have anywhere in positions of real power in this country because if you were then both ISIS' demands and some of their tactics were entirely sensible. It was a problem of the secular kafir world speaking its foreign too at this people. The internal mental landscape and the very neurological composition, the linguistics, it's all so totally different in much the same way that I have thought for years and years now speaking a different language is totally irrelevant if you cannot engage the different entirely mental and emotional language other personality topologies use, because no matter where you go a right wing reactionary is going to be the same, a bydlo the same, a professional soldier the same, the assburger the same. It transcends national and linguistic boundaries and it was clear to me that fucking nobody in our positions of influence spoke it or perhaps most critically even knew they had no clue how they were speaking a totally different language to these people.

>And I also don't like that they aren't DSA-player. They preferred to have a D&D license, but didn't get one as small Finnish developers. Hence they decided to go for another license.

I have known it. Was still excited now, but damn I normally praise even the worst TDE game, but this game is shit for which I impossibly can put in a good word.

Those Finish guy must really be amateur programmers, who thought:'Hey, we are unemployed, Finish social system provides us nice NEET-boxes, let's make games.'
It is very badly programmed. I even feel sorry for cracker groups, that they wasted time for cracking/repacking it already.
Damn, such a shitty games. I really damaged the image of the TDE. TDE is doing so good right now, even with a bad current management. There are so many fans, who are outstanding participating in crowdfunding projects for TDE products and then they are licensing such a shitty game.

In the last few weeks/month Ernst had a lot of fun playing Counter-Strike with other Ernsts.
Sadly, most Ernsts that take part in those games are from /b/ so i try to do some promotion here again after the last time wasn't very succesfull.

https://steamcommunity.com/groups/ernstglobalgaming

Some quick informations:

  1. We already have people from multiple skill groups in our ranks, this includes people who wouldn't win a 1v1 against my grandma which means there's no reason to be ashamed to be bad, it's pure love in our group :3
  2. CSGO is free, we prefer playing in Prime mode for which you have to pay or you need to play a lot to get it for free. If you just want to try it out we're willing to play non Prime with you a bit.
  3. If you already play CSGO and have a rank above MG1 it might be a good idea to create a smurf account.
  4. The group is not exclusively made to play CSGO with ernst but it is primarily used for this at the moment, you can join and ask if someone wants to play something else with you.

"Nation" in its modern sense is actually a rather young concept which came about during the age of enlightment and was first (in parts) realized during/following the French revolution with the idea of a republic of citizens with the same rights as opposed to the rule of kings and aristocrats.

I'd say state is refering to a sovereign government over a territory. Nation is indeed a young concept and is coupled with a patriotic believe of a community that oftentimes equals in it's scope that of the state territory.
A state is more a legal body and a form of organization whereas a nation is an emotional referent that works as orientation for identity. A frenchman develops pride in his Republic because it seem to have a certain characteristics he can identify with. Ofc these are rather general and it's a homogenization that never works out empirically as it is dreamed of.

>The cheapest sort of pride is national pride; for if a man is proud of his own nation, it argues that he has no qualities of his own of which he can be proud; otherwise he would not have recourse to those which he shares with so many millions of his fellowmen. The man who is endowed with important personal qualities will be only too ready to see clearly in what respects his own nation falls short, since their failings will be constantly before his eyes. But every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud adopts, as a last resource, pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and glad to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

He isn't even taking that many out. He's only pulling a fraction of the military which frankly any so called liberal or leftist ought to be applauding. We waste trillions on this bullshit.

I was thinking about it while taking a break smoking today and realized that with the amount of money we waste on the military industrial complex I and everybody else could be living rent free. This is because I realized that that trillions dollar bailout that funneled $600-minus taxes (yes our unemployment gibes is taxed income btw) on UI benefits plus the $1200 check ultimately was not actually a bailout for Americans, it was a bailout to the landlords.

All of that money was basically just going to people so they could keep paying rent, in which case basically the property owners are all a middleman who doesn't really do anything.

Why shouldn't we just have the government build buildings for people to live in and then have people pay taxes for it while cutting out the middleman? It just seems from a business standpoint like a really inefficient and wasteful business model with superfluous leeching from the system.

You know what you are doing by posting like this here. It comes across as being deliberately inflammatory. EC culture is different to many imageboards where posters try to bump their thread to to the top by being deliberately inflammatory and by posting bait. Seeing that you didn't just create the thread and leave, I'll give you my honest opinion.

Firstly, I do not support black lives matter.
George Floyd was indeed not a very good person. However, I do think that the police officer in question used unnecessary force. This is where my sympathy with the protesters/rioters ends. I see the underlying (unconscious?) purpose of the movement as a whole as just the strengthening of progressive political power.

Actual police abolition (as some anarchists imagine) would be the abolition of the modern state. This would result in anarchy, vigilante justice, and revenge killings.
Now we can debate about this all we want, but I think any such abolition should involve a very gradual change spurred on by incentives (cultural, economic, etc.). When I went up north in the countryside to buy certain foods and goods in rural Canada, there was no owner on site, just a donation box and various goods labelled with prices. The owner of the farm had the expectation that I would pay the appropriate price for the goods, and not just steal the goods and money outright. There was mutual trust between me and owner, and an expectation of a general "good will" between people. The state has no role here. I cannot be punished if I break the law, and the law is essentially meaningless here.
