What would Marx and Engels have thought of all the mass protests and anti-police demonstrations in the US? Is this the closest Americans have gotten to class consciousness?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Nah they've always had class consciousness, look at the Battle of Blair Mountain, the Black Panthers, Young Lords and Young Patriots or the civil rights movement. The Young Patriot's motto was "We protect and serve becaus ethe police sure as hell don't". Racism has just always gotten in the way of it.
Read his essay on the prussian military question. Marx argued for the dismantling of the police/military and saw them as having little to no revolutionary potential. In fact, these groups exist to produxe and maintain an industrial working class.

He would've been interested that black police officers mistreat black citizens at a similar rate as white cops...
Who cares. Fuck these morons.
lolwat? The race issue IS the overall issue, no one really gave a shit about daniel shaver or that white aussie that got killed by the somali cop (the latter generally got snarky "chickens coming home to roost whitey" comments from BLM supporters).

If george floyd had been some white loser it would've got a ten minute segment on the national news and that would've been the end of it
>Marxist treason spotted
I'm "based" here. I don't care what you antifa apologists or Soros funded scum have to say to me. I support our President sending in the military to put down this rebellion.
And proud of it. I'm sick of protests. You need to stay home and never come out again. Go live in Cuba or Iran or some Marxist hellhole if you hat the police and this country so much.
>police are gonna take muh 2nd amendment
Yeah but only for a little while. Until antifa and Soros is dealt with and we have order and security back on the agenda, we'll get the President to hand back your gun rights. He loves the 2nd amendment as much as I do but we're in a national emergency right. If I hear you people bitch about the police or the military on the streets or you oppose martial law, I'm gonna tell you to go join CNN or become a basedboy reporter for Vice or the Washington Compost.

Why did the civil rights movement go to absolute shit without any centralized leader after MLK died?
64 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
MLK's assassination cut his work short. Contrary to what history usually makes it seem, getting blacks the basic rights they were supposed to have for 100 years at that point was not all he wanted. When he died he was working on economic reform and calling out other injustices in society. You don't just throw blacks to the wind after granting them rights. The centuries of systematic disadvantages had to be accounted for too. This made him the most hated man in America at the time of his death. Furthermore, many people in the black community were growing impatient with his way of doing things and even he was having second thoughts about his methodology. The '60s was a tumultuous time and that is reflected in the civil rights movement.

Are you kidding? Omar Thornton/the Connecticut massacre, the Fountain Valley massacre, Mark Essex's shooting rampage in New Orleans, the Dallas massacre of 2016, the Aurora, Illinois, the Molson Coors massacre in Milwaukee THIS YEAR, the Zebra killings in the Bay Area, the Kori Ali Muhammad shootings in Fresno, the Wichita Horror, the Freddy's Fashion Mart massacre in New York, the Virginia Beach massacre, the DC Naval Yards massacre, etc. Those are just the ones I can recall offhand. There are more. The Delaware cemetery shooting from a couple weeks ago was supposed to be a large massacre, but cops managed to spot the guy with a drone and snipe him.

Without 'high incarceration rates,' shit would be a lot worse. More like Honduras in terms of utter lawlessness and brutality. Just look at what happened in Baltimore after cops eased up on arrests after 2015:
That was one fucked up episode of Beastars. Louis went too far.
This isn't exactly an argument. Baltimore's murder rate has been very high for decades, with occasional rises and falls.

Why are they more linguistically conservative compared to their European relatives?

Probably due to the continuous influence of the proto-languages that for a while retained the sacred status in their written form.
environmental pressures i suppose

What features do you mean? The only major conservative feature of the phonology of Indic languages is preservation of voiced aspirates, and Iranian didn't even do that. Most of the vowels shifted, and the labiovelars were merged into the plain velars. Grammatically the case structure has been reduced more than in Slavic, for example, and already in Sanskrit the split ergativity of modern Indic languages was well established.

Lets face it the current happenings basically fit your standard definition of a revolution, vacuous though it is, but has there been anything else like this in history?

What other events have untied such a broad cross section of society over a social issue? Literally the biggest corporations, upper middle class whites, and underclass blacks have all united in outrage and as far as I can tell this is pretty unique.

Also show some love for /his/'s favourite youtube channel.

naive but optimistic way of looking at it.

really they just want money and stuff, but not really have to work for it. which is fine, that's pretty typically american.

What are some somewhat funny anecdote youve come across from history?
One I just read came from a book about the relationship between the VOC and the Tokugawa Shogunate. In the book it describes how the VOC were able to enter the Japanese market by first claiming to be representives of the King of Holland(really the Prince of Orange) and when that became invonvient they decided to make themselves technically vassels to Japan and showed their loyalty by fighting Japanese Christians. Anyway one flair up in relations occured when some Dutch sailors went to the wrong port and were arrested. They were eventually released but the Shogun wanted a formal apology from the King of Holland by way of an ambassador visit. The Dutch not wanting to arrange a letter from the Prince and not wanting to apologize and all decided to send a dying man to Edo to apologize. He died along the way. The Japanese were so confused they called the whole thing off.

During the Spanish Civil war, the rebel army soon took control of half the country and advanced firmly towards the capital, Madrid. In one of the major cities, come 75km south of Madrid, in Toledo, the nationalist uprising failed and the rebles locked themselves up in the Alcazar, a kind of castle-palace where the garrison was stationed.

The Government led forces bombed the Alcazar for months, expecting the few hundred troops to surrender, to no avail. They finally captured the teenage son of Colonel Moscardó. They called him on the phone.

.- Father, if you do not surrender, they say they will kill me, he said.
.-Son, commend your soul to God and die like a patriot, shouting, LONG LIVE GOD and ¡Viva España!’ The Alcázar does not surrender” he said
.- That I can do, answered the boy.

Yes, but he then derailed into full blown heresy and started making shit up.
Anon, he pulled a translation out of his ass assuming the relationship of two completely unrelated languages when there was significant and obvious evidence that his conclusion was wrong that he just skipped over.

Yes, it's minor. No, it doesn't have any theological implications I can think of. But the method he used to arrive at it is so stupid and sloppy that it showcases how pathetic his thought processes were.

Nihilism is a complex topic itself, but generally apeaking, it is the denial of any meaning to reality. It develops out of existential thinking, which posits that mans existent precedes his essence. Essentially, mans creates his existence. Nihilism is the incorporation of concepts such as the will to power, the ubermensch.

Buddhism is the denial of the reality in front of you. The recognition of the dharma, or the endless cycle of mans ignorance through the cessation of desire. Buddhists practice stringently with a set of rules that teach them to let go of r reality.

Both of these deny reality, however, Buddhism introduces a correct practice for it, meditation and the dharma.
Nihilism tells us to literally create the meaning we see fit. Nietzsche places more emphasis on this by suggesting that the powerful person can also create their own moral compass.

Essentially, there is a common difference in their perception of reality, and the idea of nothing. They differ with their reaction to the concept.

Buddhism, like all religion tells you the answer.
Nihilism doesnt

I disagree on the separation between the last 2 periods. The characters changed but the plot remained the same.
Basing a timeline on milestones of innovation within given civilizations carries with it the problem that different civilizations hit those milestones at different times. Also these descriptions for the various ages are fucking autistic.

For me it's Mitsuyasu Maeno
>Mitsuyasu Maeno (前野 光保, Maeno Mitsuyasu, c.1947[1] – March 23, 1976) was a Japanese actor who appeared in roman porno films. He died in a suicide attack on Yoshio Kodama, a multi-millionaire right-wing leader and leading figure in the Lockheed bribery scandals.[2]

>Keiichi Ito, the director-general for training of the Japan Self-Defense Forces, said that Maeno's act was tainted by self-serving motives, not in self-sacrifice for the country.[18] Ito, who was a surviving member of the tokkōtai, or kamikaze units, said "Maeno was performing an egotistical, grandstand play to win publicity, not unlike Mishima's suicide. Both were showing off to the world."[18]

>Nevertheless, Ito commended Maeno's technique in the attack. Commenting that, if Maeno's intent had been to kill Kodama, he could not have known where he would be located within the house. Ito said the bombing was, "very skillful, I give him the highest marks on that score."[18]
Not only a manlet, but also a faggot and a degenerate. He did the world a favour by killing himself like the tranny he was.
