Global proletariat mourns the loss of Dear Leader

A shining beacon of hope for the world's workers was extinguished today as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea announced the death of it's Dear Leader, Chairman of the National Defence Commission, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army: the illustrious Kim Jong il.

Let us all take a moment to mourn the passing of our beloved comrade and glorious leader.

We must change our sadness to strength and overcome our difficulties.

Even now I think he's still watching over us, looking at our golden tanks

During his time as leader of the revolutionary Korean people Kim Jong il took a keen interest in every aspect of the life of the people. A loyal comrade has documented the dear leader's inspections of the most diverse array of thing in this inspiring blog: http://kimjongillookingatthings.tumblr.com/

Quote:
He set forth tasks facing the supermarket in its service.

The essence of the socialist commerce is to orientate all its activities, from beginning to end, to serving the people, he said, adding that the goods urgently required by the people should be sold timely so as to provide convenience for their living.

He expressed his expectation and belief that all the service workers of the supermarket would bring about a decisive turn in their activities by giving full play to the spirit of devoted service for the people.

Kim Jong Il

It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Kim Jong Il, leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, General Secretary of the Workers Party of Korea and son of legendary freedom fighter Kim Il Sung, who was born nearly 100 years ago on 12 April 1912, and who led the struggle of the tiny but defiant Korean nation to defeat the goliath of US imperialism...

I wonder if He has planned a state funeral befitting His glory and wisdom like our great and beloved Margaret.

I thought this was going to be another thread about Devrim leaving the ICC.

The CPGB-ML have done it! Kim Jong Il memorial meeting!

Quote:
We will be marking the achievements of a great revolutionary life and standing in solidarity with the Korean people.

Memorial meeting to mark the death of Comrade Kim Jong Il, leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, General Secretary of the Workers Party of Korea and son of legendary freedom fighter Kim Il Sung, who was born nearly 100 years ago on 15 April 1912, and who led the struggle of the tiny but defiant Korean nation to defeat the goliath of US imperialism.

As the upholder of the Korean revolution, he was not only a great Korean but also a great leader of the world proletariat and peasantry in our common struggle against imperialism and for socialism.
Open to all.

Some of these CPGB-ML articles are great. Take a look at this one.

Quote:
Comrade Kim Jong Il was the most faithful, the most indefatigable and the most brilliant student of Korea’s greatest son, Comrade Kim Il Sung. It was he who took the President’s teachings of the Juche idea and the Songun idea and systematised them into a scientific programme for the revolutionary advance of the Korean people towards a great, prosperous and powerful nation.

Stuff only people who have no fucking clue can write.

Structurally very similar to bourgeois economics; a little side note to that: I was attending my macroecons class and the prof brought up the microeconomic foundation of the specific labor market model we were discussing.

And what was that?

A half-assed marginal utility theory with two poles, maximizing utility by working for income (wage labor is implied but the abstraction doesn't go that far...) and maximizing utility by not working at all (100% leisure time as max utility... something only capitalists can afford)

In a nutshell, people try to maximize their utility in a trade-off between income and leisure time. In a funny kind of way, both ends of the scale maximize utility, spending all your time working and spending all your time on "leisure activities".

Now, this is structurally important because it can be used, just as Friedman's NAIRU, to explain unemployment with a simple "they can't be assed to work because they want to play pocket pool all day" and it's a totally idealistic way of looking at how and why people work.

Simply said, there is no necessity to work because of how capitalism works - only voluntary participation. Which is a fucking great theoretical foundation for the absence of exploitation, yeah...

He then went on to go off on a tangent with that, throwing abstract equations around for something that doesn't make a fucking sense...

So much for situ ways of thinking, "the irrationality of production produces irrationality" and all that jazz...

But I digress. Sorry for the rant.

No, the "Stuff only people who have no fucking clue can write." was in reply to the article excerpt you posted, and I got carried away... neutral

Believe me, it really isn't worth it. And I think that the majority of the teachers I had were like his (and a lot of the students held the same line of thought)
