we often assist others even when there’s no benefit to us or our family members.

Improving social relations and the wellbeing of your surrounding people is a benefit. o_O

I have a copy of Capital/Das Kapital. What other socialist/communist literature should I read? by oakreefin politics

[–]Voidkom 0 points1 point ago

Well on leftist meme pages you might bump into memes about "spooks". Which is his term for abstractions and fixed ideas, which influence the way we think and see ourselves. eg. concepts like private property, religion, the nation and even society itself.

I always recommend him on top of a staple book precisely because he's fringe, he gives a useful perspective I haven't found elsewhere. Avoids people from falling into the same traps.

Every revolutionary project that doesn't have the self (and as extension the collection of all selves) as the centre, will ultimately betray the people it is supposed to serve or have groups of people conveniently ignored and forgotten because they don't neatly fit in the picture.

Conquest of Bread, by Kropotkin (I guess the staple book that people read to get into anarcho-communism?)

The Ecology of Freedom, by Bookchin (It's hip to read now with the whole Rojava revolution in Syria, and probably one of the better contemporary authors in the category of libertarian socialism)

The Ego and Its Own, by Stirner (Just do it. I know he's a meme and all but his pov has proven to be useful in many discussions with people who don't come from like a soc-liberal or soc-dem background. Also useful to finally put to rest the so-called contradiction between individualism and collectivism that certain types of socialists bring up)

How Japan learned to love PC gaming again by devteslain games

[–]Voidkom 1 point2 points ago

O

I thought it was more like: Good game comes on PC, now players suddenly wants to get on that again. Which is weird bc consensus was that the port was not so good and that it was even advised to use a controller on PC.

But I guess people already on PC wanting to play the game as well. And developers getting back on PC makes more sense.

I was trying to figure out what they thought the turning point was. I was really confused because of the whole usage of terms like "Japan" as a monolith, for starters, and "PC Gamers" and "PC Gaming" rather than the developers and development.

I don't get it. How did a shoddy console port to PC, turn people from the platform it was originally released on to PC?
