So many people have just checked out. Most (American) people don't vote. Most people are just drained of any life by the brutal, barbaric country we live in. There barely exists a safety net anymore, and the only jobs around drastically underpay you and have no security. Most people have to live like a fuedal peasant when it comes to healthcare. They panic at the thought of a broken limb or cancer. It means, if they aren't of the privileged few, that they'll be endebted for the rest of their lives. And even of you have basic insurance, you're often sent a bill that'll take away many hard earned paychecks.
The worst part is that this savage society pretends to be civilised. Language such as welfare reform, nation building, and gig economy thinly veil the harsh reality most people deal with. We can't even talk about how to fix this broken system because sone guy on the news is saying to stay calm."

every society, every civilization, must be built upon the ground work of its education.

without a proper and well-adjusted education system that updates itself to suit the needs of each generation, a modern society cannot support itself as it changes.

education is the backbone by which societal progress is achieved. we cannot get anywhere in the world if the people are not educated. we will always be sheep led by shepherds unless the average person is brought up to a certain standard.

in other words, education (or a lack thereof, the degradation of it, etc.) is the root of all problems that exist in society today and could easily be the downfall of our current society.

not the guy you replied to

for starters (and I don't know what the other guy meant) in the current age, the purpose of a company is no longer solely for the sake of profit, at least not practically.

EVERYBODY in modern society MUST have a job. unless you want social welfare and communism, then the people must work to live.

the private corporations are the ones who provide this work. they thereby have massive influence over the people, very similarly to a government. they can decide how you act and what you do and where you go and everything else because you rely on them to live.

as such, applying "democracy" to them is necessary if we wish to avoid all the pitfalls of a world run by private industry, the result of which you can see today and at any point throughout history.

honestly I rather agree with him, if corporations are going to be allowed to possess billions of dollars in capital and have massive influence over politics and the lifestyles of the average citizen, then they should be held to the same standard as the government that holds the same sort of power."

The impossibility of rationally controlling technology and society in the long-term.

"The development of the technoindustrial system cannot be controlled, restrained, or guided, nor can its effects be moderated to any substantial degree. This, again, is not an eccentric opinion. Many writers, beginning with Karl Marx, have noted the fundamental importance of technology in determining the course of society’s development. In effect, they have recognized that it is technology that rules society, not the other way around. Ellul especially has emphasized the autonomy of technology, i.e., the fact that modern technology has taken on a life of its own and is not subject to human control. Ellul, moreover, was not the first to formulate this conclusion. Already in 1934 the Mexican thinker Samuel Ramos clearly stated the principle of technological autonomy, and this insight was adumbrated as early as the 1860s by Samuel Butler. Of course, no one questions the obvious fact that human individuals or groups can control technology in the sense that at a given point in time they can decide what to do with a particular item of technology. What the principle of technological autonomy asserts is that the overall development of technology, and its long-term consequences for society, are not subject to human control. Hence, as long as modern technology continues to exist, there is little we
can do to moderate its effects.
A corollary is that nothing short of the collapse of technological society can avert a greater disaster. Thus, if we want to defend ourselves against technology, the only action we can take that might prove effective is an effort to precipitate the collapse of technological society. Though this conclusion is an obvious consequence of the principle of technological autonomy, and though it possibly is implied by certain statements of Ellul, I know of no conventionally published writer who has explicitly recognized that our only way out is through the collapse of technological society. This seeming blindness to the obvious can only be explained as the result of timidity."

It's the job of the government to regulate corporations. The corporations only have as much over your life as the government allows them to. This way the people of a country are controlling the corporations through the democratic process. Then for the people who work for the corporations, there are labor unions which are democratic in nature and force the corporation to adapt to the needs of the workers. So these checks and balances already exist.

All of the problems you describe come
a) corruption of the government (unchecked lobbying)
b) ideological interests of the elected leaders are not in line with the interests of the people
c) mass-immigration depowers the labor unions by offering easy replacement of existing workers

The solution of a), b) and c) is fixing our governments by getting money out of politics (as much as possible) and by educating the people so they don't vote for neoliberal snakes and idiotic socialists who don't understand economics.

Most of the bad things companies do are enabled or even enforced by our own governments. Social media for example censors people with great support or even demand from our own elected representatives.

Implementing a democratic system in the leadership of companies does not fix any of the problems you have described. It gives power to the people who work for the company over the company, yes. But the rest of us who have to use the company (think social media for example) are still as fucked as before. In a company the basic tenets of democracy don't make sense. The company decides who its "citizens" are by hiring, so it is not universal at all, People in companies are not of equal importance. Some people are more important than others.

And like I said the point of a corporation is foremost producing profit. That is how people get paid, that is how the economy grows, that is how new products get designed, that is how the government is financed through taxes. Companies are machines that produce products/services for the people and profit/growth comes out on the other end. The hierarchy in companies are designed to facilitate this. People at the top take care the company produces as much profit as possible. And the company competes with other companies who do the same thing in a market, which ideally forces all companies to produce the best products.

The interests of the people in the company conflict with the interests of the company. The people in the company primarily care about their own interests, they would elect representatives who implement their interests (high pay, little work), not ones who implement the interests of the company (profit). That inevitably lowers the output of the company and makes it unable to compete against companies who don't have such a system.

Venezuela-Cuba is to be repurposed as West-Socialist-Communist Paradise. Every single western left-winger is deported there, and it is supervised by independent expert committee that it will engage in purely Marxist policies so they can't claim it wasn't real communism if it fails.

All the communication to rest of the world is cut off so they can't claim it was CIA sabotage and bourgeoise propaganda that caused failure like they always do. They are not allowed to trade with capitalist countries so they can't claim they were subject to imperialist economic dictating like they told was case with socialist Argentina economic collapse. We give them their own closed intranet so they can't claim Russian trolls and hackers on steroids breaking their democracy which is vogue excuse now. We put Chomsky as their leader, he has been longest telling everyone how things should be ran, so let's see him run things for once, give him full reign over millions of people. Of course, people inside West-Socialist-Communist Paradise are free to replace this initial leader with whomever they feel is better for the job.

This complete liberation of everyone on terms they themself have propagated as true freedom is, in fact, the greatest possible display of selfless human empathy. By pre-emptively enacting safeguards to prevent their often self-stated reasons why their system failed before, we are assisting them to find full happiness.

Corporations have whatever rights the government gives them. If they pollute the air and sell toxic products then it's because the government allows them to.
Companies do whatever they can to make profit in the limits set by the law and that's how it is supposed to be. These issues are failures of our laws and more specifically our governments. Pointing the finger at companies is like getting angry at a lion for eating an antelope.

The solution to a failed government is fixing the government, not creating a thousand more little governments that are even less accountable to the people outside of the companies.

You commies are the only political group that doesn't want their own piece of land to build their own model society in.

Second principle is that existence of West-Socialist-Communist Paradise must be permanent.

Also, unironically, Marxism and socialist/communist struggles have proceeded on the basis of trying to represent or trying to consciously act on the material, social power relationships that structure the production and reproduction of society from day to day.

If Marxism/socialism/communism as a whole is the phenomenon you think you're targeting, I don't think you can do that without addressing this concern with the working class as a material reality.

If it's self-described college Marxists that you've met and their particular image of the working class that you're targeting, and your real point is a kind of resentful criticism that they're decadent or reliant on their parent's trust-fund or hypersensitive SJWs or some other excerpt from the right-wind handbook–which the language of parasites suggests is the case–then you should probably make that explicit."

Damn, sorry, I did actually read your posts I just forgot. Still, a major break that Marx makes with the Romantic socialists of his time is the idea that socialism is not an ideal projection of the perfect society arrived at through mental contemplation but the continuation and intensification of the struggle—that is already present through the consignment of the majority of citizens to the ranks of wage labourers—to expropriate the expropriators, to bring the means of production into collective ownership. This doesn't presuppose a political program or a set of policies, it's a critical philosophy that tries to understand our collective reality as something other than the eternal instantiation of Platonic forms of the True and the Good, and return to us a sense of our human creative power and the history of struggles that has brought us to this point.

"There is a global conspiracy, but it isn't what you think I'm going to say. It's the result of the extraordinarily wealthy having like-minded goals, and working towards these goals not necessarily by colluding with one-another. In effect their process is to make the average citizen too poor to get anywhere in life, but not poor enough that quitting their job and starting a revolution seems like a good idea. It's the sweet spot for the oligarchy, where it's engineered to make them insanely wealthy, but it's also engineered to ensure every citizen can just barely scrape rent and food money together. Much of this is argued for in governments under "austerity" and "balancing the budget," but in reality, we have never been wealthier as a nation, it's just that our taxes are not designed to work for the working class and the government is too corrupt to crack down on the corruption of the ruling class.";

Democracies are secured by only two principles:
1.) a well-educated, established middle class
2.) the right to keep and bear arms

the first means the citizenry will not be swayed by national bias and can make informed, well-reasoned decisions on politics as it pertains to themselves and their greater communities. No society has ever gone through a time without propaganda of some sort, the 20th century being no different. But media that makes the world feel smaller means less effort is being placed on the small scale, on the local communities that are the bedrock of society. The staggering lack of ability to demonstrate critical thinking skills leads to a perceived reality framework rooted in narcissism and selfishness. People are deluded to think they can make it big because media makes the world seem small. The basic principles of citizen values are breaking down as a result of poor education - from families and the government. Note that governments should guide and direct public education, not mandate nationwide curriculums/standards.

The second amendment is meant to defend your civil liberties against tyrannical governments such that democracies can be reset if necessary. This is well known but not many people see m convinced this is necessary (for ridiculous reasons in my opinion). However, the important bit is that the utilization of force against a government can only be done if education is handled properly. The United States has done a poor job directing the education of its citizenry and thus has limited our ability to defend our civil rights and liberties properly. The fabric of our society, predicated on the constitutional principles, is disintegrating."

(though this may be due to conspiracy theory; anti-gun groups taking off after several armed leftwing militias and/or police standoffs in the 1960's-early-1980's, along with the "war on drugs" gang violence.)"

as I see it there's an argument to be made that:

>an armed population can get far more out of control and therefor do far more damage than an unarmed population.

>therefore if the powerful wish to protect their investments and profits they need to make sure conditions remain livable/desirable for enough of the population that such rebellion does not occur..

I find it incredibly amusing when "gun control" is pushed as the solution for violent crime fatalities when it's mostly just a band-aid in ensuring some upper/upper-middle class person doesn't get killed in the crossfire between two armed gangs of jobless dropouts. fighting over some stupid petty grudge."

I do not intend to be hyperbolic with my next statement but any revolution ever has been fought with a form of weapon. The one that springs to mind is the French Revolution wherein the French countrymen stormed the Bastille to arm themselves against the Monarch's armies. The founding fathers, I'm sure, preempted this problem (American revolution was ~1770s and the storming of the Bastille was late 1780s). Colonial America was also a frontier, so weaponry was common and necessary to the layman but served a more practical purpose as deposing tyrannical governments was a fairly common sport in the West. To my knowledge, it has not happened as of yet really that a democratic nation is overtaken by a tyrant and then deposed by its own people to reinstate the democracy, but doing so would require weapons of course.

Defense of the homeland is another issue; the Japanese were skeptical of invading mainland America - "Behind every blade of grass is an American with a rifle." And conquering a country that has such a fervent desire for weapons is even more difficult. Not modern military is capable of conquering (territorially) America and holding it. Militarizing the country and instituting marshal law requires manpower. If all citizens of the conquered nation has weapons freely at their disposal, you are in for millions of casualties trying to control them. The intention of conquest is to subdue, not eliminate. Only foot soldiers can do this.

>>12193217
>>12193299
The people who advocate for anti-gun laws do not understand strength as it pertains to solving problems. Talking only works if both sides want to talk. They delude themselves since it is an extremely pacifist doctrine to not have all methods of defending ones self on hand at all times. Weapons were common place when society was less stable and the long arm of the law could not achieve the same thing as a strong, ordered community could. The exact people who erode the small communities are attempting to weaken the greater communities.

Should gun control be implemented? Sure, I think its important. But to what end, that is the question. The rules need to be clear and succinct."

Restructure education. Not all people deserve an education and there are some who fall in, what I consider to be, a "dangerous zone." These are people who grasp higher order concepts to a degree but cannot think about practical applications of future ramifications. They are leaches on a system, sent to university to prop up a fiat currency/debt-based economy. They believe a college education is a right, not a privilege and as such treat the institution and academia as they do in high school. Don't believe me? Go look at any instagram meme page that posts about "college struggles."

> I couldn't find somewhere to park my car so I skipped class (that I pay hundreds of dollars for)
> My teacher canceled class because he was tired, YAYYYYYY (I pay money for this and do not give a shit apparently)

If anyone advocates for a free college education, they shouldn't be allowed to go to college. They are pseudo intellectual parasites that fail to grasp the trusses that uphold society. It is odd how so many leftists preach these socialist mindsets and yet fail to grasp that if they just supported the current level of society to make things better through accepting the real roots of evil and fighting collectively toward THOSE, they'd be in a far better place. But no, its all about them and whoever made the world slightly difficult toward them.

Fiat currency is a double-edged sword and needs adjustment. The student loan crisis is a bubble waiting to pop as a result from fiat currency backed economies. The difference between the housing crisis and the student loan crisis is one harmed the physical aspects of society, the other harms the soul."
