Holi. Hace 202 años nació Karl Marx. Su aporte al estudio crítico del capitalismo, la explotación y las desigualdades sigue siendo un referente mundial.

¿Por qué la teoría de la explotación capitalista es una falacia?

HILO

#KarlMarx #marxismo #LET #Marx
El trabajo asalariado es voluntario.- Miles de millones de trabajadores asalariados a nivel mundial acuden día tras día a sus puestos de trabajo sin que alguien los coaccione todas las mañanas. Enfrentan la realidad de un mundo con recursos escasos, no un complót.
A mayor capital invertido mejores condiciones laborales.- En los sitios donde existe más capital per cápita invertido
las oportunidades laborales son mejores que en donde se ha insistido en espantar cualquier capital.

Hace 202 años nacía #KarlMarx el inspirador de los mayores asesinos del mundo, de los demagogos y corruptos q declamaron la distribución de la riqueza mientras se enriquecían sus propios bolsillos. La realidad ha demostrado el fracaso de sus ideas.
Marx consideraba a las religiones “el opio de los pueblos”, sin embargo citando al pensador francés Raymond Aron el marxismo se puede analizar como una religión secular, es decir una religión en la q Marx, convertido en mito luego de la Revolución de Octubre, fue su gran profeta.
Su vida personal dista mucho del ícono q muestra la izquierda. Fue un mantenido toda su vida, 1ro de su padre y luego de la fortuna de su esposa y de Federico Engels. Lo q no fue suficiente para q viviera endeudado, dilapidando y haciendo pasar miseria a sus propios hijos #Marx

O mal da atual organização não está, pois, em que o lucro da produção passe ao capitalista, como tinham dito #Rodbertus e #Marx estreitando assim a concepção social e as vistas de conjunto sobre o regime do capital. +
O lucro não é mesmo senão uma conseqüência de causas mais profundas. O mal está em que pode haver um lucro qualquer em lugar de um simples excesso não consumido por cada geração. Para haver lucro é preciso que homens, mulheres e crianças sejam obrigados pela fome a vender +

La influencia del #ManifiestoComunista de #Marx y #Engels:
A muchos no resulta evidente el adoctrinamiento marxista en Occidente. Hemos normalizado, como sociedad, sus postulados. Muchos se espantan con las ideas del #COMUNISMO, sin saber que, en realidad, las apoyan.
Abro hilo:
1. "Expropiación de la propiedad de la tierra y empleo de la renta de la tierra para los gastos del Estado."
2. "Fuertes impuestos progresivos."

#Marxism is probably the greatest propaganda success of all time
Karl Marx was a middle-class #Jew married with Jenny von Westphalen, an educated baroness of the Prussian ruling class.
They were controlled opposition for bankers and industrialists 🤔

His father Hirschel began his masonic quest in 1813 after joining the The Hanseatic Star lodge in Osnabrück. Karl followed in his footsteps. His connections to ”elite” ashkenazi illuminists such as the Rothschilds, Jacob Schiff, Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, etc
Karl Marx & his daddy
Heinrich "Herschel" Marx was ancestrally Jewish, and his paternal line had been rabbis in Trier since 1723. They lived a wealthy and middle-class existence, with Herschel's family owning a number of Moselle vineyards.

Interessante texto do @AvHistoria, no entanto, precisamos ressaltar alguns equívocos:

3. #Bakunin nunca foi amigo pessoal de #Marx, tiveram relações fraternais qdo entra para a #AIT q são desfeitas mediante o autoritarismo do comunista alemão. Outro ponto é q concordava c/ Proudhon acerca da relação intrínseca entre indivíduo e sociedade +

TURNING #MARX AND THE EXPLOITATION THEORY UPSIDE DOWN

ATTENTION: ALL #MARXISTS AND #SOCIALISTS.
#Marxists hate capitalism and want to replace it with #socialism because they believe that profits are stolen from wages. They begin with the idea that originally there were workers but no capitalists and that the value of the products the workers produced and sold was all wages.
But then allegedly came the capitalists, who proceeded to deduct a part of wages and claim it as profits. Adam Smith expresses this idea in paragraphs 1,2,&5-8 of his chapter on wages in Bk. I of The Wealth of Nations. They’re online at bit.ly/2MKUhfu. Please read them.

Graeber/W pitching Fukuyama all embrac. style ag Fukuyama: what's the point?

Both wanna descr THE World Hist as 1 devel 🤪; G/W go on as if we're to forget #sociology & its #capitalism insights incl. Capit means A+SOME! qual diff ways of org society #Marx #Durkheim #Foucault
2/
G/W explain inequality is dealth with regularly throughout hist: "Rather than idling in some primordial innocence, until the genie of inequality was somehow uncorked, our prehistoric ancestors seem to have successfully opened and shut the bottle on a regular basis..." Ok, fine
3/
G/W conclude on the above : "If so, then the real question is not “what are the origins of social inequality?” but, having lived so much of our history moving back and forth between different political systems, “how did we get so stuck?”

Focus Q: "how did we get so stuck?"

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Propongo di occuparci meno di #m5soldi e #salvinimmerda e confrontarci seriamente su quale #sinistra vogliamo costruire e saremmo “disposti a votare”.
Escluderei il #PDemocristiano dalla discussione ma cerco una realistica concretezza. -->
Vista la situazione, la via al socialismo/comunismo/anarchia è lontana (e occorre appunto RIcominciarla), ma dobbiamo cmq vivere noi e i nostri compagn* e figli in questa attualità e andrebbe bene anche meno schifo #nomasochismo.

pur fissando dei paletti ben precisi partendo dal riconosciuto fallimento delle politiche riformiste e neoliberiste, anche ogni purismo settario è anacronistico.

141. A la hora del montoneo fashionista jashtaguero, resulta que todos son fulanita o fulanito; hasta el perro son. Pero cuando toca revisar el nivel de responsabilidad personal en el crimen de la #PederastiaEclesiástica, no hay quien se apunte con el #TodosSomosCómplices
143. #Bergoglio da consejos de qué hacer con un hijo homosexual; sin embargo este "Padre espiritual" está atiborrado de hijos espirituales homosexuales -curas-, a los que les solapa sus abusos en contra de seminaristas:

Todo está claro en el enlace del tuit 135 de este hilo.

A short thread: The insane glorification of overtime work.

1) It's such a Malaysian/Asian mentality to overwork staff. They're paid for 9-5, but are expected to work till 8 or 9 at least, be on call after, and work some weekends.
2) This is absolutely immoral. If a company wants its people to work those hours, they should damn well pay them for it. The system of praising people who do crazy overtime as "team players" and shaming people into doing it for free is basically glorified slave labour.
3) This is terrible for long-term productivity. People burn out, get alienated, disenchanted, etc. They end up with no time for interests outside work, and no time for personal development (which includes rest, relationships, reading, sports, etc).

#KarlMarx200 thread:

1. In my own #research, I have found Marx's notion of #contradiction particularly useful.

In his analysis, Marx noted how the contradiction between #labor and #capital accounted for many of the social dynamics of #capitalism.
2. The contradiction does not necessarily mean #conflict, but tendencies that "pull" in different directions and are in a dialectical relation to each other.

The contradiction of labor/capital can be accommodated in different ways and with very different consequences.
3. I like how this notions focuses on changing social dynamics. In my own work on #land use of #Mengen speakers in #PapuaNewGuinea, I've used the notion of #contradiction, to think about social forces underpinning Mengen land ownership and use.

#Russia's really going for it at UNSC today: Amb. Nebenzia going all-out tinfoil hat, contradicting himself in rapid time.

- In the space of seconds, he says (1) the #Douma incident was a false-flag chemical attack by rebels & then says (2) there was no chemical attack at all.
U.S. Amb. to UN @nikkihaley:

- I could hold up pictures of babies lying dead next to their mothers, in their diapers, all lying together, dead, ashen blue, open eyes & lifeless, white foam bubbling from their mouths & noses… the very definition of innocent, hiding in basements.
U.S. Amb. to UN @nikkihaley:

"Who does this? Only a monster does this… the monsters behind this have no conscience… the Russian regime is covered in the blood of innocent children.

#Russia & #Iran are to blame… [but] what’s the point in trying to shame these people?
