Why does Vietnam has high life expectancy and why does Laos has a low life expectancy?

As most of leftists know, Cuba has one of highest life expediencies in the world. Vietnam and China are close too, with Vietnam having highest life expectancy of any major ASEAN countries, and higher than american vassals in the region like Pakistan, Thailand or Indonesia, yet Lao's has one of lowest life expediencies in the world. Why?

Singapore is the only fascist state in 2019.



I mean, we are the one island that sits between indonesia and malaysia, representing a key point of access to the indian ocean, so no I don't think we're a mere 'tax heaven'


We are pretty major aside from population


we had far fewer resources or support than vietnam, granted we never had to go though a war as horrible as theirs, but they did get direct funding and support from the USSR and China.



>a facist state has significant minority and foreign populations

uhhhh no

The actual answer is because we are technically a 'succdem' state but the problems arn't different from other succdem states, which is inaction in the face of imperialism etc. etc.



Fascism is not necessarily racialized you know.



>Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

we still have opposition parties, even if they suck, and we still have plenty of websites taking the piss at the PAP, and ultranationalism is really kind of laughed at here

I been one one date (when I was 30) and I have had an 18 month and 12 month long stints of unemployment in the last six years. At least for me my height does nothing.

Maybe its because I'm black




Post Feet

I'm not sure there is a proper "Leftist" line on Height and the concept of Heightism, It's certainly something that evobio & evopsych types are obsessed with as an integral part of what is colloquially referred to as the "Manosphere", meaning that it's firmly placed in the camp of the Fringe Right in all common parlance. It's one of the few areas where they also might have a point that isn't just idpol bullshit but I'm honestly not sure how you would go about adressing it since Communists don't really care about arbitrary "equality", nor whether it needs addressing.

Within relationships, height is one of the primary physical markers that women tend to select for in men, but how much of that is socially conditioned remains to be seen. You have the extreme examples of people who post "no-one under 6ft" that are played up as "Hypergamy" but I'd imagine the general trend is most straight women prefer a man that is slightly taller than them. Personally I'm 6'2 and I don't really have a preference for height among either men or women but taller people usually can carry more weight well which is a plus in my book. I'd assume these sets of biases extend to interpersonal relations more generally though and I'm sure I've seen a lot of studies about this across multiple disciplines.

I recently watched a video describing the phenomenon of the industry plant, and how the "viral sensation" which seems to come out of nowhere is almost always a façade (i.e. said sensation probably has ties to the industry in some form, and whose seemingly "viral" success was entirely contrived). Video:


The music industry itself is pretty shady, totally corporate controlled with the artists getting screwed over a lot (360 Deals, etc.). I thought we could talk about this kind of stuff here and how it relates to the late capitalist muck we're in.

>If you make the same type of music as Grimes but the only difference is you "keep it real" it's easy to see why you can't make it big. I wouldn't see Grimes as a threat or competition.

To clarify and end my commentary on this topic. With all the unfair leg up you're saying Grimes is receiving, she can't even crack the Hot 100. If you're making the kind of music that can't even chart with "unfair" levels of industry promotion, I think you have something better to work on then worrying about the other shitty artist who's getting magazine buzz because they're "well connected."



>Go look up why Daft Punk's first album is called homework. This is one of the oldest marketing narratives in the book.

Yes which is why my posts were talking about how the industry has continually evolved spurred on by advances in technology as to more cleverly co-opt DIY aesthetics, just focusing on some of the occurences in what might be called a "post-internet" era. We could get into specifics of how they've done it across multiple different "scenes" and time periods, but again I'd much rather focus on the technological & marketing aspects of such as the individual occurences don't matter too much, they're just examples that illustrate some points.

>You're just concurring with what I said. Indie is more descriptive of a style than it is of the meaning of being independent and the style is shitty artsy music that will never be in top 40.

That's quite literally not what you said but I'm glad we agree, I don't listen to "Indie" music, nor am I inculcated in any of it, my exposure to this stuff comes from being a music fan whilst it was all happening. Commenting on the "quality" of the music doesn't fucking matter at all, no-one gives a shit about our opinions on that.

>I was going to mention college but then again why? I don't know where they're significant. I'm from LA an the only "college radio" station is KCRW and nobody listens to that shit.

I'm from London and I agree with you here, although I didn't mention it because the vast majority of music listeners still receive the majority of their music from the radio. However when you're looking at demographics, it's clear that the majority of music marketed is aimed at a much younger audience than the demographics of radio listeners. The important stuff to talk about is Youtube & Spotify, along with smaller platforms in the Tech landscape.

So there was this fellow on youtube called Jay Herrod who was milked like 8 years ago. He had very serious health issues, barring him from doing work. The dude ran for presidency and was heavily against any "socialist Obummer care." It was an interesting sight to say the least: 1 vid about muh freedumb vs. communist healthcare, 1 vid about his crippling condition, and so on.

People on right wing ideology can't make the simplest connections, even if it means their doom. Reminds me of an RT comment I've read a week ago, which meant like this: "I'm a working class white American and I know very well that Trump isn't helping me very much but I don't care because the Wall will keep out the gays and immigrants."

In a sense neo-conservativism is the most egalitarian political ideology today: everybody suffers and they celebrate it as society's shared burden.

Note: I didn't mean to sound defeatist with this post and I personally think OP is pathetic for even making this thread. I merely meant expecting socialism anytime soon is pure nonsense.

But yes, there is plenty of revolutionary action we can do at the moment. We can lay the groundwork for a real worker's movement so in the coming decades we can have a real shot at revolution when our chance arises.


The only way is to break down the system.

Use anything to break it down. Use Nazism, Communism, Anarchism, Liberalism, Islamism, and etc.

It must be wiped out so that something new will take its place.




As Communists, we must embrace the image that has been given to us. We must strike terror into the system.


reminds of something that the Unabomber said when someone asked him in a new article

If you wanted to destroy modern civilization according to Ted it would be very easy, you would just have to sabotage one or two things, sort of like unplugging a few cords. Like destroying the electrical grid. or destroying the place that processes all the oil in america, apparently its all located in some place in New Orleans.



Only developing nations such as the People's Republic of China are capable of actual revolutionary mass action.

Are there any studies that prove immigration lowers wages?



Probably, but it depends on many different factors. Overall, it is adding to the national reserve army of labor. But if they're denizen workers, they mainly lower wages in specific fields where they work illegally or with reduced rights. The obvious solution is:

1. Demand full citizenship for all workers in a country.

2. Demand full employment.

3. Demand extensive rights and entitlement to wages for all workers.

The fascist/succdem solution is:

1. Maintain the underclass/denizen status of migrant workers, thus maintaining lowered wages.

2. Terrorize the migrant workers (further driving them into desperation and lower wages).

3. Tell citizens that they're special.

Well all the dialects are based on the word for "what" so if you as a resident or native know of more words for "what" you may have something there.

So yeah we have long lists of theory to chew through, but they can't all be good or adequate. Which writers would you recommend to skip or to read only for a specific purpose, like historical context, as a complementary dialogue with another writer you agree with, or for a good example of what bad theory/praxis is?

Also, to avoid this thread being derailed into anarchist-tankie shitflinging, let's try to explain to each other the value of this or that author, if they're mentioned. I'll start off with Lenin. I can't fathom the use of reading him beyond as part of the history of the USSR. What use does he has? I would argue that his post-revolution writings and speeches are important to understanding the problems he had to deal with in implementing his theories, and how material reality forced him for a change of course. Otherwise, him and the rest of the Bolshevik crew seem redundant to me, apart from the many theorists (that got purged) because there could be some hidden gems.

explain to me how marxism solve the class division between rich and poor people because of genetics and Autism Level.

a white kid from a trailer park is still smarter than a black kid from the richest families.

IQ determines which social class you end up when old, also it can predict income.

Poor people tend to be dumber, which also correlates with their skin color.

This can't be solved with any kind of goverment investment in better education.

Eventually darker races end up on the lowest social classes and the whites and asian end up always on the superior social classes.

Of course this doesn't mean a black kid that is smart wont move upwards in social class, but this is because of his Autism Level.

This is why class can't be somehow solved by economics or policy.

What job you have is a huge social status thing, even in a capitalist society, regardless of the money you make.

If it turns out blacks are going to be at the bottom tier of any type of labour then blacks will do exactly what they are doing now. Revolt against the socialist white supremacist "classless" society that obviously disenfranchises blacks and unfairly benefits whites.

genetics and autism level is basically sharpshooter fallacy

wealth is genetational, so no shit certaon genes will be common among wealthy people. doesnt make that a cause of wealth

autism level is a narrow measure of intelligence that mostly related to being good at numbers and patterns which is useful for maxizing profit or whatnot but doesn't translate to good/hard work generally

and in socialism amy personal wealth is based on how hard you work. nobody works hundreds of times harder than average, which is how much CEOs and the like get paid for.

no. Any corrupt or sadistic official or capitalist can easily replaced, almost assuredly with someone more cruel. Did killing McKinley have ANY positive effects? what about Alexander II?

The state's capacity to enact terrorist is several orders of magnitude greater than any devoted terrorist cell.
