USSR Regional Message Board
Hello, comrades! Communism for victory!
Hello again guys! What did i miss?
Inactive for two and a half weeks and I didn't miss any deep discussions?
COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE USA (CPUSA)
To: Comrade Mujahidul Islam Selim, General Secretary Communist Party of Bangladesh, the membership of the Communist Party of Bangladesh, and the workers of Bangladesh:
The Communist Party of the USA wishes to express our outrage at the cowardly and vicious attack against your headquarters in Dhaka, and our solidarity with your struggle for justice and the principles of progressive, democratic and secular political institutions. This incident once more gives evidence of the reactionary nature of that kind of political Islam, which serves the interests of the ruling class.
Enraged by efforts to bring to book persons involved in crimes against humanity during Bangladesh’s war of independence, mobs organized byHefazat-e-Islam, Jamat-e-Islam and other fundamentalist jihadi organizations carried out rioting with the demand that all secularists be suppressed and “hanged” on Sunday, causing several deaths. Targeting the Communist Party of Bangladesh because of your work to defend the interests of the working class and of progressive, democratic and secular government, they exploded a bomb to break open the gates of your headquarters which they proceeded to invade, doing serious damage. As far as we hear, there were no fatalities among the Bangladeshi comrades, but the intention was obviously to cause them.
We also hear that your party rallied to converge on the site and help put out the fires.
The attacks on your party and others come, conveniently perhaps, immediately after the world has been outraged by the deaths of more than 1 thousand workers in the factory collapse, and the protests in your country and worldwide which that incident, caused by the greed and inhumanity of corporate interests and the politicians who serve them.
The Communist Party of the USA salutes the courage and steadfastness of the Communist Party of Bangladesh, and pledges our solidarity with you in your ongoing struggles.
We also call on our government and all others to eschew any tendency to ally with reactionary Salafist forces which, under the cover of religion, seek to impose retrograde and despotic regimes in Bangladesh or anywhere else.

Attack on the Central Office of the CPB Condemned
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) condemns the dastardly bomb attack on the Central office of the Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) in Dhaka carried out by the Hefajote Islam (a grand alliance of religious extremists) and Jamat-e-Islami’s armed militants. At the time of the attack, the general secretary of the Party, along with other leaders, was in office and fortunately all of them were unhurt.
Since the war crimes tribunal started pronouncing verdicts against the fundamentalist forces who had played a treacherous role during the Bangladesh's war of liberation, these forces had taken to violence and anarchy. Attack on the CPB was a part of that conspiracy.
A heartening feature is the resistance offered by the people of Bangladesh, particularly its youth, against these attacks by the fundamentalist forces. The CPI (M) expresses its solidarity with the CPB and all the other forces in the country who are valiantly resisting the fundamentalist forces and their attack on the secular, democratic polity of Bangladesh. The government of Bangladesh should act firm against the fundamentalist forces responsible for these kind of attacks and the perpetrators of crimes should be immediately made to stand trial.
See this interesting thread, fraternal comrades:
This is clearly a step towards building socialism. Too many of the proletariat perform mind numbing work so simple it can be replaced by robots.
The socialist utopia will be established when all menial work is replaced by machines, and automated factories become capable of sustainably supplying all folk with their needs for free, as a consequence of world revolution.
Except in the free state of kolechia, of course. We love working.
The coupled states of automated labour and Post Scarcity would create an environment incapable of supporting Capitalism due to the mass devaluing of goods and services; economically left policies would the the only ones that could possibly cope with and effectively manage the circumstance.
In its infancy, the propagation of Post Scarcity promise almost untold of riches for the ambitious in areas such as asteroid mining utilizing completely automated labour. This would undoubtedly attract more Capitalists to invest, further ratifying the devaluation of the goods produced. However, there is the chance that a price-fixing monopolizing syndicate be formed, not dissimilar to De Beers and the diamond market.
The downside is temporary mass unemployment, though this would encourage more citizens to pursue intellectual careers. A historic example includes the Industrial Revolution
The potential long-term downside is the stagnation of the country itself through laziness, complacency and loss of a "meaningful" life. This can be solved by altering the psyche of the nation through sociological and ideological alteration. Basically, absolutely mass propaganda encouraging the arts and intellectualities.
Post Scarcity and the Autonomous Society are large gambles and there stands a lot to be lost if done wrong, but the potential gains are unfathomable.
Yeah, leave the common men and women without jobs, replace them with machines, so the only ones with an actual income would be people who can't be replaced, such as bankers and stock investors and whatnot...
Let's fire teachers around the world since everything can be found on the Wikipedia; I can see how police officers, fire-fighters, the military... every job can be replaced with machines.
I don't understand the point of this, Why would you not allow a man to work in the name of his ideals, family and/or nation?
The Scientific Utopia of Arbat, the Human Factor will never be replaced. The worker will always have a task. The usage of the machines will only replace the worker in jobs such as Factory worker, Farmer or other heavy duty jobs. Bankers and stock investors won't exist in Communism. People will be practicing jobs such as Teacher, Professor, Physician. Plus, the usage of the machines has another task for a Communist Society; to vanish every kind of labour so that the people will start to befree themselves from work. But that will happen after 1000 years of Communism... So relax man!
I see your point, it's just that I have a lot of respect for people who are doing those jobs you mention (farmers, factory workers and the like). I feel that by replacing them with machines, we are having those jobs undignified.
Helping your nation through developing culture and science is as important as producing material things people need.
Of course this is all my opinion, not facts, just in case.
There is hardly any job that cannot be made a non-sentient device. I disagree, there are no 'dignified' and 'undignified' jobs, only labour needing to be performed. If problems exist and there are better alternatives to those being used then there's no point getting sentimental about it in my opinion. Earthly problems exist to be solved in the most efficient fashion possible.
However, do not go so far as to say a person should not be allowed to work if they so wish. If that is their desire, then it is noble and should be respected. In a post-scarcity society, human labour can align with that individual's recreation if their view of 'the good life' is a working one.
