I don’t actually know anything about Kautsky other than the fact that Lenin stops every 3 seconds in every text he wrote to dunk on him relentlessly and that’s all I need to know

the ongoing leftcom project of exhorting Marxist-Leninists to read Lenin

the near complete lack of social cohesion & “national” identity on Repiton is really quite interesting to me. Alternia is a body with a unified purpose, direction, and head. A coherent factory churning out troops for the front lines of an ever expanding war machine. You’re born with a sense of self in a broader structural collective. Your place in it is all you know. Repitonians are atomized, alienated. It’s a post-national world, defined at every level by 1: commodification & 2: ghosts

"Unconsciously they rehearse the right life. The relation of children to animals depends entirely on the fact that Utopia goes disguised in the creatures whom Marx even begrudged the surplus value they contribute as workers. In existing without any purpose recognizable to men, animals hold out, as if for expression, their own names, utterly impossible to exchange. This make them so beloved of children, their contemplation so blissful. I am a rhinoceros, signifies the shape of the rhinoceros."

Adorno asserts that children, not yet resigned to the realities of capital, privilege use-value over exchange value in their purposeless recitation and abstraction of labor and their love of animals, "utterly impossible to exchange." "Unconsciously they rehearse the right life."

Liberal diagnoses of the roots of fascism inevitably collapse in on themselves and ring hollow because their own system relies just as much on a finely woven web of immateriality. Belief in the inexorable forward momentum of capital and its potential for moral healing

A framework of society welded together with profoundly paramaterial abstractions: the nation, the volk, the race; each attached and articulated through fundamentally esoteric rhetoric.

The game hates you. Not in the overdone sense that somehow YOU are the real monster for playing, it’s structural (literally). The game loathes your advancement. It does everything it can to prevent it. I just walked into a staircase & it became infinite & I had no way out other than to load the last autosave. The game titled it “DumbChoice.” It has no specific malice for the player being a player, it despises the player by its nature as a city, an alien place, not meant for human life & comfort.
