    [–] This incoherent rambling about cultural marxism and the frankfurt school "Unfortunately, white men are actually pretty nice and accommodating as fuck, so they gave blacks and women everything they wanted" hubblespacepenny -9 points ago in TopMindsOfReddit

    And when that political theory is further built upon, continually reiterated, and consistently emerges as a common ideological foundation shared between political movements with otherwise seemingly disparate aims?

    Could it perhaps be a common school of thought? You don't need a Scary Conspiracy to have a school of thought.

    Could it perhaps have a relation to the Frankfurt School? How is that different than the organizing and origination of schools of thought in, say, economics?

    There's no doubt that "Cultural Marxism" is used by idiots on par with the "Obama Death Panels" and "Starbucks Hates Christians" types.

    Yet, there was a re-purposing of Marxist Dialectic in which "class" was replaced with "identity group"; Assata Shakur's "Message to the Black Movement: A Political Statement from the Black Underground" outright states exactly that:

    ... we do desire that the Black Liberation Movement understand the correct role armed struggle plays in a peoples struggle and how this role is in motion for us here in North American. The tool of analysis is for us a further development of the Historical Materialist method, the dialectical method ...

    We understand the process of revolution, and fundamental to this understanding is this fact: Marxism is developed to a higher level when it is scientifically adapted to a peoples' unique national condition, becoming a new ideology altogether.

    What would you call that, if "Cultural Marxism" is too loaded a term?

    No, we just split off from the crazy train in the early 19th century, when most philosophers with constructive ideas (Peano, Church, Gödel, Russell) built the canon of the emerging fields of formal mathematics, logic, and later, computer science.

    What was left behind was the professional time wasting department, which has clearly continued on producing Sokal-level tripe to this day.

    I'm here from /r/TiA. I'm even in that thread.

    I've never believed evolution isn't real, or that white people are "more highly evolved" (what the fuck?).

    I've never even heard those claims made in /r/TiA.

    Yet we're the ones that believe in conspiracy theories and a simplistic political ideology?

    Riiiiight.

    Your viewpoint is equally dogmatic as the people you're making fun of, just in the opposite direction.

    My viewpoint is that process dogma is a ineffective waste of time, and that pretending agile is completely different from what previously existed is just an easy way to disregard a great deal of hard-earned but inconvenient knowledge as being irrelevant.

    I don't see how that's the opposite direction, but OK.

    [–] "Yeah, we practice Agile development" hubblespacepenny 0 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    Yes, that's my face when an "individual contributor" who probably wasn't even born when most of these ideas were established starts trying to lecture us.

    Your SCRUM expertise is just so impressive. Please, tell me more about the world.

    [–] "Yeah, we practice Agile development" hubblespacepenny 1 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    None of these things were advanced as being exactly equivalent, and each of these things has a slightly different definition depending on what actual process and policies look like at an organization, and where in the organization they are applied.

    But yes, please tell me how the new thing doesn't look anything like the old thing, as if religious process dogma was even remotely interesting or valuable to me or anyone else.

    Scrum master isnt a project manager, he is there to facilitate communication and enforces scrum processes.

    Uh. That's what a Project Manager does, too.

    "Project managers have the responsibility of the planning, procurement and execution of a project, in any domain of engineering. Project managers ... maintain the progress, mutual interaction and tasks of various parties ..."

    Scrum isnt development cycle , its a framework of some agile processes

    "The systems development life cycle (SDLC) ... is a term used in systems engineering, information systems and software engineering to describe a process for planning, creating, testing, and deploying an information system."

    And the key performance metrics is how often your release a product and not team velocity or whatever it means

    "A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. Organizations use KPIs to evaluate their success at reaching targets."

    Now if you want to informs yourself on a subject before forming an opiniong it would be a great service for humanity. And if you somehow decide suddenly to act smart , i can provide you references to learn more about scrum.

    Right back atcha, buddy.

    TLDR: you're wrong. sorry.

    [–] "Yeah, we practice Agile development" hubblespacepenny -1 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    I'm so sorry you disagree with me on the definitions of made-up words I included in my shitpost. I feel so terrible.

    [–] "Yeah, we practice Agile development" hubblespacepenny 4 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    But fuck integrating and testing phases - they don't work.

    Yes, they do. Any customer who has dealt with the constant stream of bugs coming out of continuous delivery is very aware of this.

    Using stupid names for everything certainly helps with the mockery, especially when they're just drop-in replacements for the previous and often equally stupid names:

    • User Story (Requirement)
    • Coach (Useless, Overpriced Consultant)
    • Scrum (Development Cycle)
    • Daily Standup (Uncomfortable Meeting)
    • Scrum Master (Project Manager)
    • Sprint (Phase)
    • Team Velocity (Key Performance Metrics)
    • Retrospective (After Action Report)

    Yes, we all know "marxism" is a thing. "Cultural marxism" is what we're talking about, which (surprise!) is absent from your quotes.

    Deflection is cute, but what do you call Assata Shakur's repurposing of Marxist Dialectic if you don't like the "Cultural Marxism" label?

    Was I expecting too much?

    If you were expecting to lead the conversation down the road of deflective bullshittery, then yes, you were expecting too much.

    [–] Millennials flipping off memorial for victims of communist rule hubblespacepenny 2 points ago in TumblrInAction

    Yawn.

    Assata Shakur:

    The tool of analysis is for us a further development of the Historical Materialist method, the dialectical method. We will not even waste our time debating the values of Marxism with those who are emotionally hung up on white people hung up to the point of ideological blindness. We understand the process of revolution, and fundamental to this understanding is this fact: Marxism is developed to a higher level when it is scientifically adapted to a peoples' unique national condition, becoming a new ideology altogether.

    BLM founder Alicia Garza:

    When I use Assata’s powerful demand in my organizing work, I always begin by sharing where it comes from, sharing about Assata’s significance to the Black Liberation Movement, what it’s political purpose and message is, and why it’s important in our context.

    Angela Davis at the Women's March:

    Free Assata Shakur.

    Yeah. Huh.

    You're either ignorant, or a liar.

    [–] Millennials flipping off memorial for victims of communist rule hubblespacepenny 3 points ago in TumblrInAction

    Well there isn't, so there's that.

    So your existence and ideological framework is a figment of our collective imagination?

    Huh. You would have done better to disprove "muh culturul marxusm" by not showing up to comment at all.

    "Reactionary" is not a made-up conspiracy term, so there's that as well.

    No, it's just a term the commies and post-modern marxist types really like to use when labeling enemies of the <insert oppressed identity/class here>.

    [–] Millennials flipping off memorial for victims of communist rule hubblespacepenny 4 points ago in TumblrInAction

    reactionary chucklefucks

    "There's no such thing as muh culturul marxusm" says the person using a term like "reactionary" while spilling their spaghetti in an anti-communist post in a subreddit they claimed to have noped the fuck out of.

    [–] Millennials flipping off memorial for victims of communist rule hubblespacepenny 2 points ago in TumblrInAction

    Ya'll are all the same. Present a shallow simulacrum of reasonableness when necessary, and then immediately go back to shitting the bed.

    This deleterious ideology isn't restricted to a tiny minority of idiots on tumblr, and you know it. Put down your copy of Rules for Radicals; your bullshit doesn't pass the smell test.

    [–] Social Security Cards Explained hubblespacepenny 4 points ago in videos

    Yeah, the whole thing sounds hypocritical as fuck.

    I think the failure to extend basic rights to non-citizens is a failure of the constitution.

    Doesn't mean I want to take away citizens' rights just to avoid accusations of hypocrisy, though.

    [–] Holy Slippery Slope hubblespacepenny 15 points ago in KotakuInAction

    It is just a comical image. Does this really bother people?

    [–] Social Security Cards Explained hubblespacepenny 6 points ago in videos

    Your rights under the constitution don't disappear just because the sitting president unilaterally declares you an enemy combatant.

    That's a good thing.

    [–] Social Security Cards Explained hubblespacepenny 6 points ago in videos

    Thanks for that insightful analysis, internet moon lawyer.

    [–] Social Security Cards Explained hubblespacepenny 2 points ago in videos

    I shouldn't have to present papers on demand.

    Whether that counts as a good reason depends on whether you believe in individual liberty as a fundamental and inalienable right.
