Why has capitalism lost the ideological battle AGAINAND AGAINoh and also that other timerepeatedlythroughout historywe never seem to learn? The younger generation is now majority commie ( https://archive.is/W2jEr ). I mean, dear lord, I'm not even sure this board has a majority of capitalist posters anymore. What the fuck happened? Why can't capitalism defend itself ideologically? And how the fuck do I prepare for the breadlines under the neo-bolshevik uprising?

Because we never had capitalism in human history. This is the first fucking time and people believe we achieved all this prosperty thanks to the science and progress. I was one of them. I even got my bias confirmed for a long time, since I studied philosophy at uni (in Italy) and that's how they explain prosperity. One day Galileo and Bacone woke up and invented science and so everything became science and progress. Not a single word on how the fuck you can make science if you can't have private property to experiment and then start producing shit based on available resources.

But that's not it.

People who get a degree in economics also don't know shit about economics. Just by listening to podcasts I probably have more hours of economics on me than the average graduate. All the people I've met that studied economics, they don't give a shit about it. I don't know how it's possible, but it is. Nobody knows shit about the austrian school, the chicago school. Sometimes, some faggot knows who's Keynes or has heard of Krugman. When they teach macroeconomics, they always make the example of the lake, where one guy gets a lot of fish and the other none, causing also fish exinction and implying that we need State regulation (no words on having the lake owned by someone who then decide who can fish and who can't).

Honestly I could write all night about why we're in the shit: the jews, State-funded education, lack of hierarchies, race, women voting, crony-capitalism, the State giving away loan and privileges, closed professions, etc etc

In the end none of it matters. The simple explanation is that capitalism has been a great gift from the Western Civilization, but it's not something that humanity can hold on to and mantain long term. It never happened, it never will.

Yes, we should try to make a last stand, but it's gonna be difficult. My only hope is that while I was naturally inclined towards liberty, I never understood the economics behind it as well as I do now. If I can change, so can other people.

I'm not even sure millennials even know what they want is even really socialism. They point to the Nordic Nations as socialist (don't have a minimum wage and have LESS regulations that the US in some cases) while trying to link the US to laissez faire. It doesn't help that the two party system in the US helps to produce "us vs them" mentality with only two ways of thinking without regards to nuanced policy. Socialism itself has many definitions that socialists themselves can't agree whose socialist.

I feel like the whole "public schools bad" meme ignores that people will believe what they want to believe. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. That's why even institutions like MIT or the University of Pennsylvania put out people like Krugman or Chomsky. Even one of /pol/'s waifus, William Pierce (Rice University Alumni), was a national socialist rocket enthusiast who hated libertarians. It's not to say there aren't issues with the US public school system, as there are many.

>Reason #1

Libertarians are full of excuses. Shit like: "the majority will always be stupid", "children always believed in bearded men who hand out free shit", "it will all fix itself eventually", etc… It's pathetic, and whoever does this should get his shit set straight or stop embarassing us by calling himself libertarian.

>Reason #2

Libertarians think it's enough to just be "right". You can't magically change the world by holding the correct political beliefs and ignoring everyone who doesn't believe them, if you're serious about changing the world then you will develop some kind of populist rhetoric that works well, you will become proactive and put the leftists on the defensive, instead being reactive and waiting to be attacked first.

>Reason #3

Libertarians are too autistic. We don't realize that most people don't respond well to long lectures and intelligent speeches about things like how the minimum wage hurts the working class, they respond to emotions, memes, things that they can relate to and easily digestable red pills. This is why we're seen as redditors, we do this partly because we're stroking our own egos, thinking that someone is impressed by our wealth of knowledge. We must get off our high horses, understand that most people are highly irrational and they have other psychological triggers that must be appealed to, we must explain shit like we're explaining it to niggers and five year olds.

>Reason #4

Libertarians are too tolerant. How many of us entertain commie bullshit from "friends", coworkers, and other leftists that we know? This board is also a great example. I mean, holy shit, what do we need property rights for? You call yourself a libertarian, but you want all libertarian forums to be about "free speech", "the free market of ideas" and letting commies shitpost everywhere because that's supposed to be the "libertarian" thing to do? That's the liberal thing to do, the "libertarian" thing to do is to a) Give everyone property rights so that b) They can maintain their own property and try to raise its market value. Despite being advocates of a free market, we are ironically the only ideological group too far up in our own asses to understand that.

Because that's hip and cool, few are really invested in it, even fewer have it in them to become ideologues. Would they really stay interventionists or communists if they had capitalism as an alternative? I doubt it. They remain as they are because there is a full-on blackout of compelling capitalist topoi in academics and the media. The capitalists that do reach prominence are men like Nozick or Milton Friedman, who are frankly boring. Almost no one has heard of von Mises, but the ones that have either admire him and his system, or they feel threatened by him. Threatened why? Because he's the strongest opposition they could possibly face, and they know it. They are right to do so. Commies may have a majority now, but that majority would quickly defect if it were faced with von Mises, or similarly convincing and inspiring persons.

We don't. We may not have a yearly summit where we suck each other off, but that doesn't mean we sit around doing nothing.

I will conceed that being right is important to me, even aside from strategic considerations.

In my experience, libertarians are not only more knowledgeable and intellectual than everyone else in the political sphere besides right-wing Christians (who tend to know more history and theology but are often ignorant of economics), they also meme better than anyone on the left. The left doesn't meme well at all, it only has an edge on us as far as propaganda goes because it is ruthless (not an advantage I'd want) and because it is already in charge of an immense number of resources, more than we can dream of having in anything but the long-term. I'd say the Nazis, as retarded as they are, can also meme extremely well, that I give them.

Anyway, you underestimate the importance of intellectual arguments. People like me are only won over with them, and we also tend to become the most loyal supporters of any ideology. Saying that we don't need books because only very few people are convinced through them is akin to saying an army only needs guns but no strategy because there are just very few generals. The generals, in our case, being men like Hoppe or Woods, who are the very stuff that the memes are made of.

>why can't capitalism defend itself ideologically

Have you ever heard the phrase "you don't know what you have until you lose it"? It's very similar to "you don't know what you're losing until you realize what you have".

Capitalism can, has and will continue to defend itself. You can't blame capitalism for your general ignorance.

As for why it's not more popular, because collectivism is easier. It's a lot easier to be wrong and comfortable in a bubble of groupthink and fee-fee insurance than take the minimal effort to be right and take ownership over your life.

The last three generations of westerners have been increasingly soft, pathetically soft in fact. Generation "Zyklon" is all bullshit, most of them get spooked by their own shadows.

>the younger generation is majorly commies

Propaganda. I'd strongly suggest you study the long-term infiltration of western institutions by Soviet-sponsored communists and the ways in which they've spread anti-western, anti-liberal and anti-capitalist sentiment.

>neo-bolshevik uprising

Not gonna happen. The future is pure Corporatism, an unholy merger of a Pseudo-Socialist state to keep a braindead mass complicit in the whims and private interest groups to enjoy the privileges of being able to sit above that all and gorge themselves on our suffering.

I find the subject between ancaps and ancoms interesting. From what I can tell it basically boils down to means of production, do people own property themselves it or does the State own it?

For that reason alone I find anarcho-communism an oxymoron.

For me, it's simple, I like to grow my own food. When it's time to harvest I consider it my property, which means I'm an "ancap" and a "capitalist" while I just consider it common sense and human fucking nature.

Anyone taking my shit, especially the State, is unacceptable for me.

The goal should always be freedom, liberty, and neither "the left" nor "the right" seem to understand how freedom works -> by being independent individuals, they're all stuck in their collectivist garbage.

>It's technically a narrow oligopoly, but you've successfully answered the "why does no one like or respect" us question in the OP by direct demonstration.

There's a time for sentimentalism and simple, emotionally charged arguments, but it's not during technical economic discussions. If libertarianism is to succeed, we have to instill this idea into people. In our current, emotionally charged environment, libertarians are set up for failure. You cannot compete with the Nazis GIVING JOBS to STEVE instead of MOHAMMAD, or with the Demsocs telling you that EVERYONE DESERVES A LIVING WAGE. Yes, we have TAXATION IS THEFT, but unlike the Nazis and Socialists, we at least require good economic argumentation for our Intelligentsia, and for the rest to respect the economics.

No, I'm pretty sure THE COPS RUNNING YOUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM AT GUNPOINT intersects with you just handwaving this bullshit away and spewing random meme ideology to explain very, very well why no one likes you, gives a crap about anything you say, or takes you seriously. If you throw in knocking down random straw men alongside just handwaving the shit that actually happens, I'd say that's at least 99% of it, and possibly more.

Meanwhile, well, wake me when both walmart and the lemonade stand rise or fall INDEPENDENTLY of each other.

>I hope I got you right, not like I had much to go with. 8chan is not a good format for quips.

I'm saying the serious structural problems are with your community, not your professed ideology. At most, 5% of the populace are borderline-retarded low-functioning sociopaths, so that is your PEAK retention as long as you go down this path.

Reason 1 is ridiculous as the right wing has always been full of "excuses"

We've tried populist rhetoric and it has only gone so far. if anything, all things ever break down to is rheotric and "Awww…. Trump betrayed us" spirals when he enacted every promise he could in a free state.

Reason 3 is ridiculous. If a population is too ignorant for it's own defense, then we should become liberal socialists and enslave the lower classes under a mafia style leftist state.

Libertarians will hear out the opposition, but as far as I know, they are bullish conservatives who will push, and if they're not, there's always room in the nattering old church lady cuck caucus. Liberals "free market of ideas" and obsession of free speech, unless it doesn't suit their interests, is naive and how Libertarianism(TM) turned into a joke of autistic cartoonist macros in the first place.

Finally, actual communists, socialists, and marxists happen to be more respectable than your average liberal/leftist/ ant Alt Right bug man You know where they stand, they wear there colors proudly, and you can ultimately have a conversation with them. They have an agenda. Guys in it for the memes are demogaugic fodder for disingenuous bad actors whom both the Libertarians and the communist loath. The left call them reactionary counterrevolutionary, and the right call them the mob. The honorable right and the communists can agree on facts, while disagreeing on goals and solutions. Partisans who pick a side know better, which is why there is always an establishment and those who follow or get out of the way. The idea of Used car salesmen of electoral politics, and how they're corrupt, is a feature of mass democracy and how it produces inferior compromise results for dirty dumb centrist scum to enable rodents play politics causing more issues than they resolve.

I went to a public school and became strongly conservative.

The reason the left always "wins" is because capitalist prosperity manufactures conditions for bug men to prosper without predators or selective pressures. When they realize they cannot survive without making the public pay for stuff and invading once private spaces, they try to vote as often and as young as possible for others to be some weirdo's slave.

Very much agreed. You can argue perfectly on these anonymous boards and some self-appointed scholar will bring up the very same criticisms the very next day, as though they were his idea, and will be just as impervious to reason as the last guy. There's an overpowering sense that the internet rhetoric is a waste of time, because it is.

The key isn't education or internet arguments: it's marketing. We've got to sell liberty, like for money. We've got to sell people things that undermine the state, and keep the politics out of the advertising. When people do it because it's cheap, convenient, and safe, they'll invent justifications after the fact for why what they're doing is the right thing. All we really care about is that they do it, and that's much easier than trying to change their beliefs.

Besides, I find rhetoric to be much more effective in person. I've found that I can actually convert people slowly over time if I have the chance to make them feel listened to and show them how their concerns are much better addressed through liberty than through the state.

Exactly! That's what I always tell everyone. We should a) completely ignore ideological outsiders, b) spam them with screencaps and pre-cooked arguments (memes), or c) tell them to read a fucking book if they're really interested like how leftypol does. The more we take them seriously, the more we exhaust our mental energy, when we could be using it to argue and discuss important plans, strategies and concepts among ourselves. I'm guilty of this myself, and for every minute I spend arguing with some retard, I could use the time to earn money and do something useful with it to support the cause, or to at least make the same argument in a meme that could be reposted later to save time.

Just imagine, it takes a subhuman five minutes to wander in, take a shit on the board, and leave, but it takes 10 ancaps 30 minutes and a combined time of 5 hours to reply to the animal and explain how it's all wrong. Imagine what could have been done with that time! On the internet, time and attention are the currency, and we shouldn't give it to just any nigger out there if we want to get anywhere, there must be argumentational standards.

This video made me realize why Capitalism keeps losing the ideological war. Every time we've had a chance for a capitalist revolution and to actually establish freedom from the State's interference in the economy and other human affairs, our movements became normalized and "our leaders" became the next politicians. Just look at the American Revolutionary War (1776). A movement for freedom and liberty begins: when they win the war for independence, within 8 years, they're already putting down tax rebellions (see: whiskey rebellion).

I know GamerGate is a dead movement, but I think there is a lot to learn from its failure. It failed because it lost its edge. Because they got too comfy. We failed multiple times, because we got too comfy.

We have to use the political strategies that statists use. They're not statist strategies, since there is nothing inherently statist about them. It's not unprincipled to use them. It's just the strategies that work. When the statists try to appease us and give us an inch, we take a mile; we take ten, we take whatever we can. Every time the state fails, we capitalize on it. We mock and unrelentingly attack. We don't need to prove our points (see: pic related). We just need to mock statist fallacies. By making the statists look foolish, the masses will naturally sway to our side. But we can never ever take a break or lose our edge; because that's how a movement stagnates and dies.

As one anon put it:

>I think one other reason is the edge factor. A big part of NatSoc ideas, especially the species found on imageboards, is edgy contrarianism and priding oneself on being as anti-normie as possible. Thing is, "auction off the national parks, give McNukes to mercenaries, and remove the undesirables from private property" will always be edgier than "what we have now but /ourguys/ are in power, no interest rates, and maybe less crime," and they're eternally buttmad about that fact. It's why they keep trying to portray libertarians as passive live-and-let-live types that are terrified of "collectivism," NEETSocs are trying to meme it into reality so they can call themselves the chief edgelords uncontested.

There's an episode of Kino's Journey where one of the countries she visits bans books. It turns out that the 'punishment' for those who are caught running underground book publishing is that they have to be the censors and bureaucrats who enforce the law to ban books.

Reminds me of a story about Zhuangzi:

>King Wei of Chu, having heard of the ability of Chuang Chau, sent messengers with large gifts to bring him to his court, and promising also that he would make him his chief minister. Chuang-Tze, however, only laughed and said to them, "A thousand ounces of silver are a great gain to me; and to be a high noble and minister is a most honorable position. But have you not seen the victim-ox for the border sacrifice? It is carefully fed for several years, and robed with rich embroidery that it may be fit to enter the Grand Temple. When the time comes for it to do so, it would prefer to be a little pig, but it can not get to be so. Go away quickly, and do not soil me with your presence. I had rather amuse and enjoy myself in the midst of a filthy ditch than be subject to the rules and restrictions in the court of a sovereign. I have determined never to take office, but prefer the enjoyment of my own free will."

The lesson I take from this is to never be so arrogant as to think you can be the one to handle power. Power corrupts all. The only way to win is to not play.

>Thing is, "auction off the national parks, give McNukes to mercenaries, and remove the undesirables from private property" will always be edgier than "what we have now but /ourguys/ are in power, no interest rates, and maybe less crime,"

Our strategy should be quite simple: as an ancap, you need to hone the ability to boil down extremely hard concepts into short impactful sentences. Picture it this way: The second you start explaining anything, you already lost. Never explain shit to normalfags unless they specifically ask you to, and never try to convince people, because that only puts their defences up, since deep down these people know how susceptible they really are.

Do you ever wonder why there's so many boomerpilled centrists out there? Most people simply don't know what's right or wrong, and they are terrified of deciding. The fact is (according to Jungian depth psychology) that only about 10% of the population is made up of rational "thinkers" and these are the sort of people who are mostly likely to become libertarians, 40% is made up of normalfags who are very skeptical and follow only the rest of the herd or those who are more confident than they are, and the rest is made up of people who either turn the personal into the political or follow what their emotions dictate. Most people are simply not rational, objective thinkers, it is not their role as human beings to "think", it is our role to do the heavy-lifting for them and to break it down into something easy for them to handle. If we are unable to this the movement will be taken over by the passive liberal cucks who ARE willing to do it, just like how things are right now.

If you're a typical normalfag and someone is explaining free markets to you, it's the same as someone dropping a 100kg boulder into your arms, most people are not willing to do that kind of of intellectual weightlifting, it's scary for them because they feel like it's so complicated that no one may ever really know what's right or wrong, after all, people spend 4 years at universities studying this shit, and even after all that, they wonder if it's really worth knowing all that.

Voting is retarded because you can never trust the people you vote for. If someone is running for political office, they are either misguided or a shill (see: Adam Kokesh).

It's also the most cucked way to feel like you're causing change without actually doing anything: you have no way of knowing that they actually count the vote, no assurance that the system would even let them do the changes they promise if they even get elected, and you have to waste your free time studying up on the candidates and then going out to vote for them. That time could have been spent much more practically.

Who are you even going to vote for? The current FPTP electoral system limits you to the two most popular parties to normalniggers (and we all know how "free" those parties usually are) unless you want to vote for a third-party who don't have a chance in hell of winning.

The only strategy I've ever thought of is using an election as a way to get your message across to the public, not to win (after all: change doesn't start in the voting booth, it starts in the hearts and minds of the public). I've often daydreamed about running for political office on the platform of: "Don't vote, period" in order to spread the message of liberty, but I have little faith that would actually work and no way to see if I'm actually causing change, since if the voter turnout rates are concerning, they can just be doctored to quell any revolutionary fervor in the public.

Japan is famous for sloppy management of electromagnetic wave.

Japanese society Has become serious thing behind the scenes.

Electromagnetic wave is secret globally.

But Japan can`t take a cooperative attitude In the field of electromagnetic wave use.

Because some of Japanese abusing it that state secret.

They slander Japan and Japanese people and other country(America and others), and attack and threaten people,suggest that murder,Threaten to kill,using electromagnetic wave all of them.

They are antisocial terrorists with state power.

But they feel at ease.

Cause Japanese government permit terrorism!

It seems like Japanese government don`t have the motivation to prevent terrorism!

Apparently many Japanese take part in crime and playing that abusing state secret.There is a possibility that they supporting to terrorists.

Do they have awareness that it is own country?

Even though they are Japanese, it`s irresponsible!!

Who will clean up after them?

I know that they are so crazy. Because I have spent with them every day by policy.

They talk to my brain directly with communication all day and all year around!

They say

and the others・・・

They tell terrible things to me. And they using some name of authority.

They instigate me to terrorist attack.

It seems like they are dissatisfied with society.They take it out on me.

They harass me when I living. In defecation and sex and dangerous work and bedtime and the others・・・

I think it`s a limit of a single person and the general public. It is so bad degree.

And they abusing child and animal with avatar(electromagnetic wave).Sometimes use violence on me with avatar.

And they playing pretend of homeless and handicapped person with avatar.

And they don`t care about avatar`s body. Sometimes they don`t make them wear protection helmet and mask in dangerous work. And when I driving a car, they always make avatar come near me on purpose.

There are many people who don`t know the common sense in Japanese authorities.

They are shame of Japan,but I think that should not forgive their action for society.

This is international problem.

It seems like they are dissatisfied with America.

But I think that Japan needs strict supervision for the maintenance of peace by advanced country.

In Japan, it is terrible human rights violations with electromagnetic wave by authorities.

It is doing in many people for one person confidentially. I want American people to know it.

We should keep a lookout for human rights violations.

And many Japanese people Pass the buck to me,but they making money by fake news referring to these problem!

And Japan failed education for authority.

This is Japan`s reality .Who will clean up after them?

Please know the name of Japanese terrorists.

Please share this information in each country!!

Please help Japanese people and avatar.

Thank you for your cooperation.

That video is damn good. After the 2016 election I realized it was a mistake to vote for Johnson. McAffee would've been better since he is ballsy and owns how ballsy he is.

I sort of feel like this regarding local elections. National elections your vote doesn't matter that much. But on the local level that stuff affects me directly. So voting on the local level would be preferable.

>National elections your vote doesn't matter that much.

Policy-wise perhaps not so much, but just as important as policy is the influence that the government has on a culture. The Oval Office's most potent weapon is its status as a bully pulpit. BLM wouldn't have gained an appreciable amount of influence on the national level were it not for Obreezy's rhetoric in the wake of Trayvon Martin and similar incidents. Universal healthcare wouldn't be as prominent an issue on the national stage, either. Despite losing control of of Congress relatively early in his tenure, he managed to shift the Overton window a fair ways leftward through the bully pulpit. Even if he can't pass a single policy, the President retains a powerful tool in his ability to instantly have the entire media place microphones and cameras in front of him, whenever he wishes.

To that end, even if you think policy is is irrelevant, who sits in the Oval Office is significant. I'd much rather the influencer of culture be an unabashedly forthright businessman telling Americans they need to be great, stand up for their own success, and so on, over some socialist dinosaur constantly telling us our biggest problems are money and white people.

It'd be good if we could just shut the fuck up and stop polarizing. Absolute capitalism with no regulations just leads to monopolies and less freedom, pure state socialism just outright kills freedom, the answer? State run companies within the free market, and a choice on what you pay your taxes towards, therefore allowing the people to control the budget. That's my shitty 2 cents anyway.

You're never going to not be polarize in a mass democracy. The more power the state has the more inevitable polarization becomes, as the federal government becomes that much more bigger a prize to win.

>Absolute capitalism with no regulations just leads to monopolies and less freedom

That's objectively wrong, but this isn't the thread to have that argument. Most of the catalog is filled with elaborations as to why it's wrong.

>State run companies within the free market

That's what we have now and it's a shithole.

>and a choice on what you pay your taxes towards, therefore allowing the people to control the budget.

First, it's wishful thinking to believe that "the people" ever have power in a democracy. They are vote and tax cattle, and the incentives of democracy are such that this is all they will ever be. Second, if you really want "the people" to choose how they spend their money, you'd take out the coercive and highly inefficient middleman of the state and allow them to spend their own money directly. You can know, by choosing what products to buy and what not to buy. If you don't believe they're capable of doing it this, then you don't actually want "the people" to have control over the their own lives. If you don't actually value "the people" spending their own money how they see fit, then the whole premise behind allowing them to decide on line items in the budget is rendered irrelevant.

That was exactly the idea. IRS insurance would be so lucrative and powerful. Plus DEA and ATF insurance. Plus, since it's peer-funded, it's basically an investment account outside of the government's reach. It could form a financial backbone fit a whole new services market. Provide ways for insurers to hire liability limitation professionals, and eventually people can hire private security forces to protect themselves from the state, though that won't come for a while.

>The lesson I take from this is to never be so arrogant as to think you can be the one to handle power. Power corrupts all.

I take it as those who seek power tend to be already be corrupt rather than those who take power become corrupt.
