The Specter of the Soviet Union Still Haunts the EU
The European Union is about freedom and human rights, prosperity and peace, life without fear; it is about democracy and pluralism, a continent without internal borders and walls.” As “someone who spent half of my life in the Soviet bloc,” Tusk emphasized, “I know what I am talking about.”The specter of the Soviet Union usually appears as an expression of nostalgia. We see nostalgia for the U.S.S.R. spoken in affective terms — a memory of past relations, tastes, smells, sounds and sights of the Soviet past. Soviet nostalgia is often derided as the folly of homo sovieticus or indicative of a creeping Russian revanchism. The place of the Soviet Union in the EU debate is not nostalgia per se, if, as the Slavic critic Svetlana Boym wrote, nostalgia is “a longing for a home that no longer exists or has never existed.” However, it’s not totally divorced from nostalgia either. In the EU debate, the Soviet Union serves as a form of anti-nostalgia. It’s a total rejection of a past without overcoming it. Like the nostalgic, the anti-nostalgic also has, in Boym’s words, “a romance with the fantasy of the past.” Reducing the Soviet Union to “prisons and gulags” flattens the complexities of Soviet life.

WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and Decoding the National Security Commentariat
The Fourth Estate, that historical unelected grouping of society’s scrutineers, has become something of a rabble, and, as a confederacy of strewn dunces and the ongoing compromised, is ripe for analysis. An essential premise in the work of WikiLeaks was demonstrating, to a good, stone-throwing degree, how media figures and practitioners had been bought by the state or the corporate sector, unwittingly or otherwise. At the very least, the traditionalists had swallowed their reservations and preferred to proclaim, rather unconvincingly, that they were operating with freedom to scrutinise and question, facing down the rebels from the WikiLeaks set.The Fourth Estate has, however, been placed on poor gruel and life support. Gone are the days when Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein ferreted their way through sources and obtaining the material – leaks from confidential sources, no less – that would make them famous and lay the way for the demise of a US President. Such energy is frowned upon these days; the investigative journalist is being treated more as an irritating remnant, a costly undusted fossil. The way for what Nozomi Hayase calls the “Global Fourth Estate” is being well and truly paved as a result.

Sanders, Biden and the Electability Scam
Joe Biden’s corpse-like performance at the Miami debate should have caused the immediate interment of his campaign to the graveyard of presidential history. Biden’s longstanding lead in the polls, dating from before he’d even announced his candidacy, was largely due to outsized support among Blacks, who make up between a quarter and fifth of Democratic voters – and 60 percent of the Democratic electorate in South Carolina, the critical “Black” primary state. copmala harris masterfully gutted Biden for his opposition to school desegregation, but the stake missed his shriveled white supremacist heart, leaving Biden gasping but un-dead. A Reuters poll conducted in the days after the Miami debacle showed Biden dropping 8 percent among Democrats in general, but that his nationwide Black support was cut in half , “with about two out of 10 saying they backed President Barack Obama’s former vice president, compared with four out of 10 in the June poll.”In heavily Black South Carolina, however, the CBSNews/YouGov poll still gives Biden 39 percent, versus Bernie Sanders (17 percent), Elizabeth Warren (12 percent), Harris (12 percent) and Pete Buttigieg (5 percent), while the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll show’s Obama’s former vice president pulling 33 percent of the Democratic primary vote, with Sanders at 18 percent, Warren at 14, Harris at 13 and Buttigieg stuck at 5 percent.

Why does this shit always devolve into straight up white supremacy?

Because just like trots in the 00s the far right is founding this shit as entryism: not realising that it didn't fuckign work for the trots in the 00s.

hell it didn't work for the trots in the 60s

i mean the whole thing is fash entryism from the start, but i'm gay and yeah if you're going to a straight pride parade you're a fucking loser lol – like 99+% of the other straight people out there are going to think you're a nerd who can't get laid

It's just virtue signalling, I don't even care about it up until the point everyone else starts sperging out about it

broke: pride parades
woke: parades that feature capitalist skulls impaled on salt covered sticks

did that guy ever said something true and factual in is life?(Words reasonable. But cartoon anti semitic. This isn't the Daily Stormer book club)

It's usually a cover for that from the start.

bespoke: pride parades that feature capitalist skulls impaled on salt covered sticks

Idpol breeds idpol.

What the fuck is wrong with the mods nowadays? Or was it the BO?

It's just a 7-day ban.

Yes I see. It's the homos fault that the straights needed a parade. Also it's their fault that the parade is explicitly reactionary and nationalist.

Reactionaries gonna react anyway.

Now you're getting it. Just like decades of reactionaries repressing homos led to parades.

Is it just me or has this board actually managed to get worse since the old BO left?

it has

We're welllllllll into the territory the Unabomber warned about. I wonder if at some point we'll develop a technology that spells a singularity, not positively like the uppercase one that techies keep wanking about, but one which makes its current level of civilization non-viable.

Ah, neoliberalism.

Oh wow

Oh come on, is ironic racism being banned?

There seems to be an increasing amount of moralfaggotry in recent months.


This. Post-human communism is the only communism.

Careful now. Saying faggotry might be a bannable offense in the near future

If you have any comment on the moderation you'd like to make, please do it so in the moderation thread.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

...

Basically "To the EU the USSR is its antithesis, now that the USSR is gone its memory has to be perverted and exaggerated to justify the EU's own national origin myth: in doing so it warps the very thing that was the USSR itself from a historical entity to a beast of national legend".

I fucking warned you. Lolis are the canary in the coal mine.

Yes.

Basically the EU is the the great bastion of democracy but i has oo many people who are pro-soviet.Propaganda with the gorillions and gulags is too on the nose and dumb so now anti-sovietism should be more subtle to prevent those nostalgic for the USSR from rejecting that crap.

Yeah, moderation had jumped.
