Part of a single lecture that covers Marx's writing in the context of Russian literature, out of a total of 26 lectures (the rest of which don't cover Marx's writing), constitutes "teaching Marx?"

Normally when you say "teaching X" that means X is the focus, not some ancillary topic that's covered as part of a ranging discourse on a wide variety of topics.

That's quite the corner you've backed yourself into there.

check out wildcat, it's a set of anarchist comics and marvel ones, so you might have to differentiate through search terms

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raised_fist
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomism

so I found out that thomas paine had a sister that died as a child, is consistently shown with scissors, and seems to be a tailor

"At the age of 13, he was apprenticed to his stay-maker father. Paine researchers contend his father's occupation has been widely misinterpreted to mean that he made the stays in ladies' corsets, which likely was an insult later invented by his political foes."

here's the reds (socialists, who don't belong in the yellow area - yellow meaning liberalism), america, and fascism (the grey guy who was wearing a brown cloak and hiding like he was an afrikaaner), I don't particularly agree with this propaganda but I found it insightful into the phenomenon of colours as references


the third one shits class war, see political colours and note references and viewpoints, for instance the courtroom in the dark knight rises has a certain french revolution feel to it

attack on titan's a great example of the concept with giant people eating others, and if you feel like it, there's a great intro at least to tower of god on the matter, since class war is about dealing with those who rule above you and in essence climbing the tower is in the comic, and the first bit is similar to gurren lagann in a sense too although they have differences, the first thing about class war you have to understand is that for the people who rise up, they start fighting because they feel suffocated by the impositions of their masters

ah, I found a few wildcat cartoons, simple is good for an opening on a complex subject, I'm not talking about simplifying the concept entirely, but rather begin with a general premise
http://www.spunk.org/library/cartoons/wildcat/sp000574.gif
this is a *particularly* good one since phrases like "no war but class war" find themselves mostly supported by the anarchists, and politics, personal matters and philosophical matters all are important under a mature understanding of society in their view from what I've seen

http://www.entravity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/kill-la-kill-ryuuko-satsuki-nui-wallpaper.jpg
now, I watched kill la kill after I noticed the transformers thing, and I knew someone who was as shallow and chipper as the yellow character, and they classified themselves as liberal basically, so that's how I kind of flipped out and started really associating kill la kill with class struggle once I saw this freeze frame

oh and I think I see calvin from calvin and hobbes in the picture, calvin, and hobbes the actual people might be a good reference point too, it might be good to reference a game on the matter, mass effect 3 certainly has aspect but it's a bit pre-blowup as a cultural addition, fight club's a pseudo example if you talk about the movie, but you could bring it up, and reference the beginning part about the boring job, consumerism etc etc etc, or the matrix with the leech machines, the animatrix had a good one about class war through that one short about blowing up the UN or something with an apple

What if battle:

Alexander The Great VS Julius Caesar

Who do you think was the better general? Both conquered. Both succeeded when the odds were against them. Both fought in battle (frontline commanders) who would win?

Neutral ground. Open field with hills on both sides.

Alexander was one of the four greatest military geniuses in history; Caesar was much more of a political manipulator than a soldier, and his conquests came from the fact that he was fortunate enough to command Roman legionaries, the finest army the world had yet seen. Caesar was not worthy to have carried Alexander's gloves.

Historian 14/09/30(Tue)12:04 No. 14429

both were great at what they did, caesar was more political and alexander was more militaristic, but alexander had some serious issues with maintenance as did caesar, both possibly got themselves killed by the people "on their side" because of it

if they teamed up, caesar would enjoy being associated with alexander the great who would receive many many troops over and above what he could have gotten for himself and for a longer period of time, don't forget that alexander was well aware of how to engage in larger overall strategies while caesar was envious of him and despaired at not having done anything at the same age alexander died since the latter had "conquered the world"

just fucking admit it, it's patton and ike without montgomery shitting things up

Do any of you study History at undergraduate level or higher, or are you thinking of studying it at this level? I would be interested, if there are any of you, to hear your experiences, what you think of your course and syllabus and whether you think it is a waste of time or useful.
I personally am in my final year of Undergraduate study and I am doing my dissertation on the Nuremberg Trials. Although I enjoy modern history, the module choices for it were poor, so I am mainly studying medieval history as well as one module on Farming and society in Victorian Britain.

I just got my BA in History this past May.

there's actually quite a few options open for History graduates because it's such a general field, but the two biggest and most obvious choices are Teaching and Law.

I chose the Law route and entered a Paralegal certificate program. When that's done hopefully I can land a cozy state job making 42K a year along with benefits and retirement plans. I would have become an attorney, but 100K+ in loans wasn't worth something that I could possibly fail out of. If the big money and big risk is more your speed, best of luck to you buddy.

Paralegal is actually pretty practical for historians. most of the job is researching the history of stare decisis cases and applying them to current cases. If you like studying the history of law, you can make good money simply reading law history books and writing motions/briefs.

There's other jobs and such applicable, museum curators, book preservationists, archivist, etc. But the livable wages are with Law and Teaching.

I had a friend at uni who got a job at the state archives, but that was mainly because she had a few referrals from state government officials.

anything's possible I guess. But I never heard of preservationists being in super high demand. I guess the place to start looking are the larger libraries or just walk into the archives and ask the curator if you live near the capital.

a vague and general benefit probably, I've not heard of it often conferring direct benefits (although there are notable benefits but these might be more easily served by amateur research into history)

a few exceptions exist for the top of the class, people who know people when there's openings, and even these are of course, mostly for something like teaching in the field you were in

although I've never been myself

I made a game to teach the geography of water scarcity. What do you think?


Different kinds of chocolate will be distributed around the classroom in different combinations.


If chocolate Is allocated to you hide it or keep it in the open if you wish


At the end of the game, the chocolate goes to whoever holds it.
At 20 second intervals the game is stopped temporarily
If you do not have a chocolate wrapper at this time, you die of dehydration. If you do have a wrapper, you need to give it back (to the bin)


If you have a chocolate AS WELL you can invest it back to us (research!)and you will get triple the chocolates the next time the game is stopped. If you have just spare wrappers you can give it back for double the wrappers in the next round.

hi, im interested in empires

will there be no more empires? too many pesky small countries makes me sick

i am interest of things like poland-lithuana joining empires in 18th century but now in present day

hypothetically what if America and China coagulated? Could America send it's warships to Europe and hold it down while China puts a knife to the japan, korea, and the other asian countries?

also if all those shit sand nigger countries had an shred of intelligence they'd all come under one leader and become massive powerful country, but that can never happen

1980s: There has been a bomb in Oxford Street! and in the days before Al Qaeda there is only one prime suspect the U.S.A. sponsoring terrorists as always. The U.S. has sponsored every terrorist organisation in the world. One way or another throughout its short history the U.S. has attempted to kill you. Non-Hollywood history total U.S. casualties in the Second World War in Europe and Asia total: 418,500. And the Soviet Union: 28,000,000. the war began in 1939 the U.S. never declared war on Germany or Italy. The U.S. never come to the rescue of anybody Russia won the Second World War. The U.S. lost the Vietnam war and are losing the Afghanistan war. Hollywood is not history it’s fantasy.

Slavoj Zizek doesn't know why communism failed, what are your thoughts?

Particularly i'm interested in leftist views of why communist efforts have so far been completely catastrophic. I don't really have any idea but I realise that the soviet union, maoist china or most other places which had successful revolutions installed systems that look nothing like actual what was proposed in actual communist theories.

Pls don't fill up this thread with arguing about whether or not the SU was 'true communism' - it was a catastrophe for humanity regardless of theory. Pls keep to the question, ok?

I'd suggest taking a look into the writings of Gramsci and the Frankfurt school for some of the reasonings developed by communists for the failure of Marxism. Those two perspectives give a pretty good starting point for why communism failed, at least from within the lens of Marxist theorey-craft.

>We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: 'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.' I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

This threat was made against the entire world because the Paletinians were uprising against them in 2003.

Yeah, good thing we're arming them to the teeth too, & funding this shit loud & proud.

It's funny, how what is "normal" for the US, is not this, not whatsoever. Post World War, USA decided it was better to be the worlds new Nazi's than wait for someone else to become them, and thought, fuck our entire approach as a nation, we can play the game of global geopolitics, did a massive 180, and jumped headlong into every squabble they could, granted extraordinary extra-constitutional wartime powers, and immediately sought to ensure a permanent state of war to make them permanent. These ambitious dicks had watched from the cheap seats France and Englands approach to pitting shit-tier countries against themselves internally and externally post WWI, and thought, hell, looks easy enough... So here we are nearly a century later, ten fucking failed overthrows later, still flooding every country and militant group in the entire middle east with unlimited weaponry and funding massive political instability everywhere possible on every conceivable scale.

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

Even England and France who love this kind of shit, who created the borders to perpetuate the culture clashes in these very countries originally, after pretty successfully doing it to marginalize billions of people in Inda and nearly the entire continent of Africa, are still going, "ehhh monfraire, deez shizz is getteen oud of hand a bit I theenk, non? You ehhh, has a plan of some sort, yes?"

USA respons by renaming frenchfries.
