Original post content:

>Honeybees make decisions collectively–and democratically. Every year, faced with the life-or-death problem of choosing and traveling to a new home, honeybees stake everything on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. In fact, as world-renowned animal behaviorist Thomas Seeley reveals, these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to collective wisdom and effective decision making. A remarkable and richly illustrated account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees.

>In the late spring and early summer, as a bee colony becomes overcrowded, a third of the hive stays behind and rears a new queen, while a swarm of thousands departs with the old queen to produce a daughter colony. Seeley describes how these bees evaluate potential nest sites, advertise their discoveries to one another, engage in open deliberation, choose a final site, and navigate together–as a swirling cloud of bees–to their new home. Seeley investigates how evolution has honed the decision-making methods of honeybees over millions of years, and he considers similarities between the ways that bee swarms and primate brains process information. He concludes that what works well for bees can also work well for people: any decision-making group should consist of individuals with shared interests and mutual respect, a leader's influence should be minimized, debate should be relied upon, diverse solutions should be sought, and the majority should be counted on for a dependable resolution.

>An impressive exploration of animal behavior, Honeybee Democracy shows that decision-making groups, whether honeybee or human, can be smarter than even the smartest individuals in them.

First book I read was Capital tbh.

What you recommend people is dependent primarily on how much spare time they've got. Obviously somebody working 9to5 doesn't have time to read three volumes of Capital, but a University student or NEET has ample time to get to grips with it.

Also, while Mandel's book is a great introduction, I also think it would be a good idea to include the abridged version of Capital Vol. 1 by Ruehle. I haven't read it myself, but I skimmed it and it seems pretty good.

Asking for some recommendations bois.

>First

What would you recommend to read when it comes to Adorno and I guess the Frankfurt school in general. It's peaked my interest as someone with some nationalistic tendencies, also I guess to answer the cultural marxism meme.

>and second

Would you have anything that I could recommend to a friend. Like a month ago he was a /V/irgin lolbert who got into ancap shit because of memes. He's becoming very seriously depressed, and it's obviously due to the current atmosphere of things, he's pretty much got no reason to live outside of consuming more shit and dosen't completely realise it. but I have no idea to make him conscious of what's going on. So I guess just general shit to try make him a little class conscious, and maybe some mutualist, egoist or libsoc stuff.

"The Decline of Socialism in America: 1912-1925"

Here's a pretty great book on the history of the Socialist Party in America, mostly focusing on its peak & fall. I read it irl a while back, now I found a djvu file, converted it to pdf & added a bunch of bookmarks & links throughout to help reading.

Ehh not necessarely. No matter how much time you got, in the modern day asking someone to read a book is hard enough, if it's even a long one you have close to zero chance of them doing it.

If instead you give them a very simple and digestible 20 pages summary you may hook them up to something more serious. It worked for me, still a brainlet but slowly getting better.

Because people have the right to be lazy and it's unlikely they'd go lots of old threads on multiple boards that they're unlikely to even be aware of just to find something they were interested in.

Besides, I've already went through that trouble myself, that's where I got the Marcuse PDFs.

I've actually made a mega folder a long time ago. It went under the radar and it pretty much means that these threads are far more comfortable for people than sifting through Mega folders. And that the mods are too sleazy to notice something useful to sticky.

Anyway, it's not that good either because there are always new books to add, and unless someone wants to become the /leftypol/ librarian it's not gonna fly. Besides, this thread is meant precisely for books that weren't posted there, books that can be only vaguely connected to leftism but still useful like >>2300218

I have collected a shitload of pdf's over time.

Not all of them have to do with leftism though.

Not sure what im supposed to post, here are some

>what uncle sam really wants by Noam Chomsky:

A brilliant distillation of the real motivations behind U.S. foreign policy, compiled from talks and interviews completed between 1986 and 1991, with particular attention to Central America.

>weird scenes inside the canyon:

Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times. Members of bands like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, the Mamas and the Papas, the Turtles, the Eagles, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf, Captain Beefheart, CSN, Three Dog Night, Alice Cooper, the Doors, and Love with Arthur Lee, along with such singer/songwriters as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Judi Sill and David Blue, lived together and jammed together in the bucolic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills.

But there was a dark side to that scene as well.

Many didn't make it out alive, and many of those deaths remain shrouded in mystery to this day. Far more integrated into the scene than most would care to admit was a guy by the name of Charles Manson, along with his murderous entourage. Also floating about the periphery were various political operatives, up-and-coming politicians, and intelligence personnel - the same sort of people who just happened to give birth to many of the rock stars populating the canyon. And all of the canyon's colorful characters - rock stars, hippies, murderers, and politicos - happily coexisted alongside a covert military installation.

Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon is the very strange, but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a hippie utopia.

The CIA and the cult of intelligence:

The book discusses how the CIA works and how its original purpose (i.e. collecting and analyzing information about foreign governments, corporations, and persons in order to advise public policymakers) has, according to the author, been subverted by its obsession with clandestine operations. It is the first book the federal government of the United States ever went to court to censor before its publication. The CIA demanded the authors remove 399 passages[2] but they resisted and only 168 passages were censored.[3] The publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, chose to publish the book with blanks for censored passages and with boldface type for passages that were challenged but later uncensored

A brief history of time:

In A Brief History of Time, Hawking writes in non-technical terms about the structure, origin, development and eventual fate of the universe, which is the object of study of astronomy and modern physics. He talks about basic concepts like space and time, basic building blocks that make up the universe (such as quarks) and the fundamental forces that govern it (such as gravity). He writes about cosmological phenomena such as the Big Bang and the black holes. He discusses two major theories, general relativity and quantum mechanics, that modern scientists use to describe the universe. Finally, he talks about the search for a unifying theory that describes everything in the universe in a coherent manner.

I don't have much philosophical background, so that's may be the problem. My high school professor was an arrogant imbecile full of himself that made me hate anything related to its class.


 No.2340408

>>2340265

Yes, it's is. Even if you begun by reading Marx directly (who didn't write - nor, imo, was translated - in an accessible manner), you should've started with the Critique of Political Economy (while it mostly deals with the chapters you've read already, there is also "method of political economy" that might grant you some insights). It should get (somewhat) easier later on.

Obviously, there are alternative ways to learn Marxist theory other than reading directly, but that usually presupposes that you support a specific school of thought: there are also study guides and comments on the subject (ML have quite concise "Political Economy" textbooks). Discussing things also helps tremendously.

As for philosophy, I consider it extremely important for understanding Marx (and quite a few scientific concepts, like theory of relativity) - and operating Marxist concepts. Predictably enough, source of your philosophical education also depends on the supported trend (I'd suggest looking up Cornforth - IIRC, libgen has his books).

> My high school professor was an arrogant imbecile full of himself that made me hate anything related to its class.

That's the whole point, I think. Status quo is Capitalist, and it has to rely on distorting perception of reality, on obfuscating things - to prevent masses from disrupting it. There is simply no reason to support dissemination of philosophy that actually helps general public to think, to understand things as they are. This is how we ended up with pomo nonsense being presented as "philosophy".

I mean it would be but since Adam Smith people have gotten really good at condensing free-market ideology. So you could get the big ideas a lot faster by reading something contemporary.

>The Wordly Philosophers

is a pretty good one that's very readable that's a history of economic academics, it gives pretty good historical context and all that.

>Real World Micro

>Real World Macro

are also pretty good. They give the basic neoclassical ideas and present them along with leftist (not necessarily always marxist) critiques and real-world examples of things not working like overly simplified explanations would have you think.

Personally I'd recommend those 3 first. Then the more contemporary classics like General Theory and Road to Serfdom and maybe even some Milton Friedman. Capital (probably with the David Harvey companion) and Wealth of Nations after those.

Are there also any good texts, written in the modern high-tech era, dealing with the prospective organisation of a socialist, or indeed actually communist, society?

Thanks. It's at least more readable than TtQI. It is beginning to, along with the Butler I've read, elucidate something which has some value to it, but which I may consider writing about in order to redirect it from its either apolitical (sorry, Butler) or anti-civ tendencies. I think restructuring queer theory into a materialist/class struggle framework may have some value for my own ends, but I don't think this project has been adequately faced yet. Still, Butler and Baedan have been useful in teasing out the details which do interest me.

>Every day, corporations are connecting the dots about our personal behavior—silently scrutinizing clues left behind by our work habits and Internet use. The data compiled and portraits created are incredibly detailed, to the point of being invasive. But who connects the dots about what firms are doing with this information? The Black Box Society argues that we all need to be able to do so—and to set limits on how big data affects our lives.

>Hidden algorithms can make (or ruin) reputations, decide the destiny of entrepreneurs, or even devastate an entire economy. Shrouded in secrecy and complexity, decisions at major Silicon Valley and Wall Street firms were long assumed to be neutral and technical. But leaks, whistleblowers, and legal disputes have shed new light on automated judgment. Self-serving and reckless behavior is surprisingly common, and easy to hide in code protected by legal and real secrecy. Even after billions of dollars of fines have been levied, underfunded regulators may have only scratched the surface of this troubling behavior.

UP IS DOWN

LEFT IS RIGHT

Biologically, bees are literally slaves for the queen. Do you want to be a slave?

Besides the idea that groupthink is superior to logic and reasoning in the individual is laughable. Groups are much easier to manipulate and convince. Propagandists/Cults/Armies/Religions/Advertisers (Capitalists) all use the psychology of groups effectively. WITHOUT EXCEPTION. It is the cause of our enslavement, not the solution.

Groups follow morally/emotionally charged narratives, not logic and reason. Most individuals in our society flock in groups. Even though people on the chans think of themselves as NON-NORMIE, they too follow emotion and narrative, investing in the dankness of their own memes.

For those who seek to CONTROL us with DECEPTION, the most powerful tool is Narrative. The management of identity groups, on the basis of nation, race, class, or creed keeps us people fighting against one another while the true masters (those who control money and knowledge) hide in the shadows.

They want the PEASANT class to fight the MERCHANT class, while the PRIESTS, BANKERS and KINGS continue to harvest the proceeds of our labor.

YOU ARE CATTLE TO THEM!!!

Think about what abolishing private property actually means.

It means that no private person can control production.

Which means that the people (you) have no control over their financial security or future.

But people naturally want control over their lives. We all do. If we lose it we go mad. Literally. So what must be established to ensure that the people do not control their own lives? CENTRALIZED POWER (the queen bee)

Socialism can never lead to true communism, because communism is not stable. Without hegemonic control, the human instinct for control and security leads us ultimately back down one of the paths we have been down before. It simply CANNOT be a state of enduring freedom and peace because of the LAWS OF HUMAN NATURE! The nature we inherited from our ancestors, which they used to secure our existence and which we will use to secure the existence of our offspring (except incels)

The only way to achieve the BEE SOCIETY in truth is to change our biology and so to change HUMAN NATURE.

See Brave New World. It is a brilliant book based on what a human BEEHIVE would really look like.

Marx at the Margins: On Nationalism, Ethnicity, and Non-Western Societies

>In Marx at the Margins, Kevin Anderson uncovers a variety of extensive but neglected texts by Marx that cast what we thought we knew about his work in a startlingly different light. Analyzing a variety of Marx’s writings, including journalistic work written for the New York Tribune, Anderson presents us with a Marx quite at odds with conventional interpretations. Rather than providing us with an account of Marx as an exclusively class-based thinker, Anderson here offers a portrait of Marx for the twenty-first century: a global theorist whose social critique was sensitive to the varieties of human social and historical development, including not just class, but nationalism, race, and ethnicity, as well. Through highly informed readings of work ranging from Marx’s unpublished 1879–82 notebooks to his passionate writings about the antislavery cause in the United States, this volume delivers a groundbreaking and canon-changing vision of Karl Marx that is sure to provoke lively debate in Marxist scholarship and beyond. For this expanded edition, Anderson has written a new preface that discusses the additional 1879–82 notebook material, as well as the influence of the Russian-American philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya on his thinking.

THE FIRST SOCIALIST SCHISM

>Instead of focusing exclusively on what Marx and Bakunin said, many other contributions to this debate are examined, making this the first reconstruction of a dispute that gripped the entire organization. This book also provides the first detailed account of the International's Congress of The Hague (September, 1872); including the background, the sequence of events, and international reaction.

>Although largely unknown to anglophone readers, Bolívar Echeverría (1941–2010) is one of the most important representatives of Latin American Marxism and critical theory to have emerged in recent decades. 1 He was born in Ecuador, but his main intellectual formation took place in Berlin during the 1960s, where he became involved both politically in the generation of the German student movement that saw the SDS and Rudi Dutschke rise to prominence, and theoretically with the associated revival of critical Marxist thought, drawing on the early texts of (so-called) Western Marxism by Lukács and Korsch, as well as later currents found in Sartre, Adorno and Marcuse. In 1968 Echeverría returned to Latin America, settling in Mexico, where he undertook a deepened reading of Marx and Marxism, enriching it further through a critical engagement with a wide range of thinkers and traditions including Heidegger, Benjamin, Nietzsche, Hegel, Braudel, Mumford, and, […] structural linguistics and semiotic theory, in particular the work of Jakobson and Hjelmslev.

Should I go with the Penguin Classics translations or with the MECW translation. I've noticed some minor differences from the very first lines that might be significant.

>MECW Capital vol. 2

First stage: The capitalist appears as a buyer on the commodity and the labour market; his money is transformed into commodities, or it goes through the circulation act M—C.

>Penguin Classics Capital vol. 2

First stage: The capitalist appears on the commodity and labour markets as a buyer ; his money is transformed into commodities, it goes through the act of circulation M-C.

 No.2459041

>>2458979

>his money is transformed into commodities, or it goes through the circulation act M—C

>his money is transformed into commodities, it goes through the act of circulation M-C

These both say the same thing, the first added the "or" in not to say that the capitalist either transfers his money to the commodities or goes through the cycle, but it is instead simplifying the idea that money is transformed into commodities on the market with the older formula M-C. It's just a bit of confusing English.

But don't use the Penguin House version they never have good translations.

The real thing here is: you made the most retarded post of all time here.

How can you condemn a culture, if all culture has the same value? Is it just the "capitalist" part that makes it worth less? Objectively speaking, the people that support any left leaning ideology are far more likely to degenerate themselves like shown in the picture. You either force people to adhere to the cultural standards or let everybody loose, that's at least what you'll have to do, if you're controlling a communist state. Reactionary ideologies are probably the best at actually preserving cultures.

You can't read these men's ultra-complex works with centuries upon centuries of philosophical thought embedded in them if you have never touched upon the very foundations of Western philosophy. As a matter of fact, Marx shouldn't be seen as the beginning of communism and leftist thought, but rather as the culmination of everything that had come up until him. When reading Das Kapital, one should consider all of the revolutions and changes in human thought that led up to it.

a warning about the Iranian Revolution, though - while it's a fascinating and inspiring time, it obviously had an incredibly dark result.

You know, like they send good copies of Marxist books in physical form? I have tons of PDFs but I must admit that I do like physical books. And I'd also like to be introduced to a wider variety of Marxist literature than just the classics I usually read.

Anyways, here's a short pamphlet by Daniel De Leon called "Anti-Semitism: Its Cause and Cure". It's really neat that a lot of these old books always remind me of current issues.

Kant's "thing in itself" is a pretty big deal, Lenin talks about it a ton in Materialism and Empirio-Criticism, I'd say it's worth it to read him.

It's one of the hardest books by one of the hardest philosophers on par with Derrida, you should know at least the targets of Deleuze's polemic in order to grasp it fully, namely psychoanalysis of Freud as perceived through Lacan, which is fucking hard on its own. But yes, it's worth a read for any intelligent person.

Any suggested reading related to Mongolian People’s Republic, especially in its early years? Their situation always fascinated me since they lacked any real ability to become a socialist (or even capitalist) state in the first place since they lacked any industry whatsoever. I wonder if there’s places in similar situations (lack of any industrial capability) that can learn from them.
