A Short Report On North Korean Slave Camps

“I am evolving from being an animal…But it is going very, very slowly. Sometime I try to cry and laugh like other people, just to see if it feels like anything. Yet tears don’t come. Laughter doesn’t come.”

“I did not know about sympathy or sadness…They educated us from birth so that we were not capable of normal human emotions.”
– Shin Dong-Hyuk, Escape From Camp 14

“The camp is no place to grow…

It must therefore be clear that “women’s issues” cannot be considered or dealt with separately from an understanding and strategy of the way the major contradictions affect the whole proletariat. Attacks on male supremacy must be a major focus of all our work. When we talk to young working people in the shops, in the schools, or on the streets, it is one of the first notions we raise, and we begin very quickly to stress the importance of changing the practice of male supremacy into more communist forms of relationships. Because male supremacy is one of the major ways, along with racism, that the ruling class wins allegiance, we must break down the practice in order to destroy the material basis for that allegiance.

Further, male supremacy as an ideology is one of the most important ways that the Man defines individuals and societies in such a way that it makes it difficult to understand how socialism and communism could work, let alone how the forces of people struggling to win these ends could ever be successful. It demoralizes the people, and is a critical force in promoting bourgeois individualism through false separation of men from women, preventing collective practice. All of this discourages the people from allying with the struggles of the international proletariat and encourages them to be cynical and thus to ally with the ruling class to try to maintain as much stability and access as possible.

Within the Movement it is crucial that men and women both begin to fight against the vestiges of bourgeois ideology within themselves, to break down existing forms of social relationships. Only by developing forms in which we can express love in non-exploitative and non-competitive ways will men and women develop their full human and revolutionary potential for struggle.

Men who claim to be fighting imperialism in any form must fight against their own supremacist practices and notions. Not to do so undercuts their own legitimacy as revolutionaries.

3 Poisons

Feminism.

Communism.

Race Mixing.

Feminism attacks the traditional family from inside.  Communism dissolves the moral law of private property and Sovereign Government outside of a Globalist agenda.  Race mixing insults and harms the diverse races on the planet.

Persistent crisis of global capitalism and mounting wars of aggression

The crisis of global capitalism is persistent and is ever worsening as the US and other capitalist powers cling to the neoliberal economic policy under the Washington Consensus. This policy has not only failed to solve the old problem of stagflation but has aggravated it.

But the US and its followers have retained the policy because it serves the superprofit-taking by the monopoly bourgeoisie and the financial oligarchy and they belittle the current level of revolutionary resistance and underestimate its potential. The protraction of the severe crisis provides the opportunity for the revolutionary forces to develop further.

Even within the imperialist countries, economic depression and social degradation have taken a serious toll on the people. The proletariat and people of color have suffered the most from unemployment, reduced income and social cutbacks. The so-called middle class has drastically shrunk.

As for the Baphomet statue in Oklahoma City, it’s of no more significance or meaning than a statue of Ronald McDonald. If it blasphemes anyone, it’s Lucifer. After this, saying you worship the Devil is pretty much the same as buying a ticket to a convention for My Little Pony. The Satanic Temple managed to turn even the King of Hell into just another whining liberal pussy.

Why Libertarian Philosophy Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With Quantum Mechanics

Read an almost incoherent blog post today by a political philosopher relating QM to Libertarian philosophy. Here’s a few reasons why you shouldn’t take such facile ideas seriously:

(1) It’s not necessarily the case that quantum entails an indeterminate universe in the way the world actually works. In fact, there are multiple ways to define the metaphysical worldview for the Copenhagen Interpretation. (i) Bohr’s instrumentalism, which holds that QM reveals no metaphysical features about the world (ii) Bohr’s Kantian-esque complementarity, which holds that the indeterminancy is a limitation of the phenomenological world, but not in the noumenal. (iii) Heisenberg’s subjective realism, which is the only of the three that maintains indeterminancy in all degrees. 

(2) It’s not clear that randomness equates to indeterminancy at all. In indeterminate systems, you can have patterns and multiple causes. Indeterminancy does not need to predict unicorns popping in and out of existence. 

(3) Quantum decoherence is a phenomena in which we observe things behaving indeterminately on very small scales yet determinately on larger scales. So it’s very likely that indeterminism and determinism are both true in certain respects. 

(4) On a slightly different note than (3), QM does not apply to larger scales, such as the brain

(5) Most importantly, causality has nothing to do with the debate for an optimal political system. The universe could be X and your belief in the optimal system could be Y, in which the two have little to do with each other. Even if it did, Libertarians would have to justify why QM seems to favor Libertarianism over Anarcho-Communism. 

A couple is walking in St. Petersburg Square on Christmas Eve. They feel a slight precipitation.

"I think it’s raining," says the man.

"No, it’s snowing," replies the woman. 

"How about we ask this Communist officer here? He is always right!" exclaims the man. "Officer Rudolph, is it raining or snowing?"

"Definitely raining," Officer Rudolph replies before walking off.

The man turns to his wife with a smile. “See? Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear.”

Tomorrow is the anniversary of one of the most horrific moments in the 20th century. It’s been seventy-seven years since the imperialist army of Japan invaded the city of Nanjing. Over 300,000 people were brutally murdered in this invasion of one city, but this number doesn’t even express the horrors committed against the Chinese people. Women were raped, and murdered, and sometimes raped again. Infants were raped and killed, and objects inserted into their bodies. According to various sources, the Japanese would cut open children just so they could rape them. There were “contests” between Japanese “soldiers” to see who could kill the largest amount of Chinese people with a sword. Japanese soldiers would go door to door and gang rape any females they could find, and they were often mutilated after the rapes. Pregnant women were also specifically targeted for rape and murder. 

This was an act of genocide, and one of the most evil events in history. The Japanese murdered hundreds and hundreds of thousands of innocent people, and raped perhaps even more, all because they were “bored and frustrated”. 

But of course, this anniversary will not be marked because it doesn’t fit the US agenda. The media happily reports on the anniversary of the so-called fall of communism, but is always mostly silent on these tragedies inflicted by an empire that is now America’s ally. Several Japanese officials have called the rape of Nanjing/Nanking a “fabrication”. The current ‘leader’ of Japan, Shinzo Abe, has questioned whether Japan ever committed these awful acts, despite there being vast amounts of evidence. 

We cannot forget.
