Communism, the theory , vs
We can generally agree that the attempts failed for the most part.
But a detailed view of the mechanism for how each slightly different approach failed will help refine the theory.
Please catalog examples of earlier attempts in history
And do your best not to simplify the narrative
No one has been able to cement revolutionary political gains without a transition to authoritarianism. Communism preaches botton-up rule until it gets power. Then those same things become threats to the revolution.
Instead of addressing this contradiction head on, Gramsci ramified it, creating the school of thought that basically you NEED an intelligencia to run things, and to create class contiousness in the first place. Variations of this have now been the dominant school of Marxism since the 2nd half of the...

Way to misinterpret what an organic intellectual is.
Good job. Read Gramsci next time.
So what are the origins of the nation state? Why this form proved to be the most successful? Are there any exceptions?
Just how and why did Europeans come to hold lions in such high regard? How did a animal not native to the continent end up being the symbol for kings and royalty?
Lions historical range was pretty large so I'd imagine lions would have been relatively well known since prehistoric times
Because they were an apex predator and look majestic
Lions used to roam over southern europe until the Greeks and Romans exterminated them
Lions have lived in Europe since prehistory
Truthfully, the bear was more highly revered until the early middle ages
But lions in Europe were extinct by the time western Rome fell, and there is no proof that the lions in your picture look like the ones found in sub Sahara.
Wolf and bears are also apex predator,they also look majestic.
Has childhood indoctrination had a net positive or negative effect on society? Not just religion, any ideology throughout history.
Positive, but only because of the most basic functions of it, not the appropriation of the potential for indoctrination for a multitude of purposes.
Having gullible children that will take it at face value that 'you shouldn't swim in the river because there are crocodiles' or 'don't eat random mushrooms' rather than question it and 'test it for themselves' would seem to be a necessity.
>Having gullible children that will take it at face value that 'you shouldn't swim in the river because there are crocodiles' or 'don't eat random mushrooms' rather than question it and 'test it for themselves' would seem to be a necessity.
That's not indoctrination into an ideology.
Positive, but only because of natural selection.
Rich parents make it difficult to discern environment from genetics/culture, but when it has been going on for this long, waning but always waxing again further down the line, you know they are doing something right.
mootnote: Obama is related to King John so let's all accept genetics plays a role and not get into any race bait or /pol/-tier nonsense.
What were the weirdest experiments that actually happened? Preferably from WWII era but everything is welcome.
So the fall of Constantinople is the fault of greedy Venetians?
Are they the aquatic Jews of the past?
What does good and evil even mean anymore?
How could anyone have ever thought monarchy was a good idea?
look up the word church.
If you have a single family of accumulated wealth and political power and significant noteriety, who becomes king or queen is less significant than the place they join in marriage. Why do we want to listen to god instead of ourselves?
That's why bastard is a formal way to shit on someone.
>How could anyone have ever thought monarchy was a good idea?
Tbqh the emergence of specialization and hierarchy in pre-history almost precipitated the rise of monarchy, although when humans were isolated to small villages and tribes, the priestly class were the rulers pretty much.
>thinks the Hard Problem of consciousness can never be solved by science
>believes that everything that is material (like a pebble) has consciousness
Should we trust this man?
The fact that he's ignorant enough to be making such bold statements about one of the least understood subjects in modern society should answer that question. Plus, just look at how he dresses himself.
>The fact that he's ignorant enough to be making such bold statements about one of the least understood subjects in modern society should answer that question.
A self-defeating argument.
>Plus, just look at how he dresses himself.
Wow. Let's get /fa/ on the Hard Problem of Consciousness.
Why did Humanity choose to be Farmers instead of Hunter-Gatherers?
The video that this quote is from is so good https://youtu.be/7nIRJVmZ4K8
Because there have been buddhas throughout all consciousness and what distinguishes guatama is the traditions which developed after him that give us all easy access to the 8 fold path?
ITT: overrated thinkers
What does /his/ think about the Black Dahlia murder? Who do you think did it?
Also, can you imagine living in the house with the lawn her body was dumped on?
Numerous passages in the Bible portray Jesus clearly stating that the Second Coming would occur within the lifetime of his disciples.
>"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
— Matthew 24:34
"This generation" refers to a span of 30-40 years, thus placing the date of the second coming before the deaths of the disciples. C.S. Lewis called this "the most embarrassing verse in the Bible" in The World’s Last Night and Other Essays.
