I organize in PCB, Brazilian Communist Party, also a member of SolidNet


The burden of proof is on this claim. Where did you get that the WPK tracks all files on flash drives?

The files copied from an USB on Red Star OS do leave a trace of where they came from, with information of the USB drive in them. This was probably designed that way because of how anticommunist propaganda operations were done there in the past, with USB drives full of anticommunist garbage.

i.e.:

A file that leaves information about the USB may help track and fight these kinds of propaganda operations. By the way, while Red Star OS is made in People’s Korea, there are many computers there which use Windows XP. The internet there is not entirely blocked, only sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc. You shouldn’t need an explanation for this, Facebook is also banned in China because it was (and it still is) used in colour revolution and propaganda operations, such as the Arab Spring which killed the noble leader Muammar Gaddafi.

However, internet blocking is less strict for university students, especially Computer Science students.

The internet is not a neutral place. Blocking some websites is a matter of self-defense for socialist nations. Some people think this self-defense tactic is “repressive” but that reasoning is nothing short of pure idealism, which does not take into account the attacks suffered by those nations.



I’d say it’s not wise to base your conceptions on a society based on those details. Every society is a complex one, and should be treated as such. If you study the history of Korea, you will understand a bit better where they come from, and the development of their society.

The people of Korea have a history of fighting for their life and dignity against colonizers and imperialists. They were one of the most bombed countries in the world, by the US military. Yet they have managed to achieve their sovereignty, at least half of it, and up to this they they are striving for self-reliance. Take a look at this article, it’s a brief outlook on the Juche philosophy, the guiding philosophical framework of People’s Korea.

But “Supreme Leader” for the Korean people doesn’t mean obediently serve a monarch as in “absolutism”, it simply means a title of a governing position. For instance, in Brazil, we have an institutional organ called “Supreme Federal Court”, but it’s not supreme at all. The fascist right-wing corporate-military government of Bolsonaro, currently supported by the US, constantly clashes with the supreme court.





CIA director William J. Burns met with the generals of the Bolsonaro government. The US Army South, the command center of military imperialism in Latin America, recently published that it will hold a “joint exercise” on December 12 of this year, an operation titled “Southern Vanguard.” The purpose o…

It produced this, but I’m not sure if it’s any better


idk but i found this

Seems like it’s from a video





Why the dislikes? This is a celebration of the event. Fuck the English Empire, at all costs.





For years Facebook has been used to give voice to far-right groups, and this was never really addressed. The reason they are now combatting “extremism” can only be attributed to the fact that radical leftist discourse is becoming more and more common…



I don’t know the painter nor the time of the painting. Any help would be appreciated…


The study you linked that, according to you, claims homosexual behavior is linked to pedophilia literally says otherwise in its abstract.

This, of course, would not indicate that androphilic males have a greater propensity to offend against children.

Besides, yes, I believe that human sexuality and sexual orientation cannot be explained only through genetics as well. That said, LGBTs have existed throughout human history, the impression that you have that it’s a recent phenomenon is that only recently Western culture has given attention to that question. The ancient Sumerian gala priests, the Thai kathoeys, the indigenous two-spirit, are some of many other historical examples of non-binary genders. Human experience simply cannot fit into just two clearly-defined genders.

Imperialists have been using LGBT movements to advance their interests in socially conservative countries, including socialist ones, and the fact that they have been able to do it successfully reflects how this issue has been overlooked, and it’s a sign that this question should not be ignored by communists.

When you mention how LGBT is in contrast with “proletarian ideology”, how do you picture “proletarians”? Do you picture them as a strong white cisgender male who works in industry? Because LGBTs are mostly proletarians as well.

As communists we should fight each and every form of oppression. If you ignore oppression against LGBTs, you are not a materialist, because oppression against LGBTs is a concrete phenomenon. If you acknowledge the oppression, yet you echo the oppressors, why would you call yourself a communist?

Marxism-Leninism-WhatsApp Thought


There’s the story of Puyi, the last Chinese emperor. I’m not sure if he deliberately gave up his powers, but it’s well known he was re-educated and got inserted into Chinese socialist society.

(by the way, you’ve been consistently posting about book ideas over the last months, why don’t you create and moderate a community for it? that’d be cool)






We made a campaign to raise funds to hand masks for our militants and militants of other orgs too





I think it’s actually him, and he was a pedagogue as well. L. S. Vygotsky


“The first edition of Fundamentals of Marxism-Leninism was highly acclaimed by the Soviet and international communist press. Many great propagandists and teachers of Marxism acknowledged its value as a useful educational aid, easy to understand while being at the same time a competent scientific exposition of the fundamentals of Marxism-Leninism as an integral science. The book was translated into many languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, etc.).

The present, second edition, while preserving the structure and main content of the first edition, has been enriched by the valuable new ideas of the most outstanding work of modern Marxist-Leninist thought — the Programme of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union — and by the basic propositions of the other documents of the Twenty- Second Congress of the C.P.S.U. (…)

The main work of preparing the second edition has been carried out by O. V. Kuusinen (leader of the group of authors), Y. A. Arbatov, A. S. Belyakov, S. L. Vygodsky, A. G. Mileikovsky and L. M. Sheidin. Work on the revision of individual chapters has also been carried out by F. M. Burlatsky, N. I. Ivanov, B. M. Leibzon, A. A. Makarovsky, and Y. P. Sitkovsky.”
