all this aside, if you call yourself a marxist-leninist and your first concern is "what if the workers say a bad word on the internet," you have bigger problems than deep matters of theory

marx had a theory, which has been pretty well borne out by history, that class conflict has a "purifying" effect on those who struggle together in solidarity for the whole of the proletariat, in that petty chauvinism would be worn away on its own as leftist partisans of diverse backgrounds build camaraderie and mutual understanding with each other. marx therefore placed his focus entirely on the class struggle, and while he did say a few things now and again about gender equality, he did not regard the various forms of chauvinism as worthy of being the target of struggle themselves: in *actual* marxist-leninist theory, these prejudices and sentiments are the mere *symptom* of domination and division of the proletariat by the bourgeoisie, which is the underlying disorder. so he would attack these symptoms head-on is a man in a burning house who, instead of reaching for the fire extinguisher, simply thinks "it's too hot in here" and turns up the air conditioning

Сейфы и технологии

Технологии развиваются все стремительнее, а для сейфа, даже комнатного, можно заказать уникальный, единственный в мире замок. Но что-то все эти технологии и возможности откровенно теряют свою прелесть при одном просмотре этого видео.

Вот серьезно, когда я работала менеджером в отделе сейфов, мне один клиент рассказывал грустную историю о том, как собрал дома пати. А утром обнаружил открытый сейф. Его же ключами. Другой рассказал похожую историю, но уже с замком, реагирующем на отпечаток пальца.

И вот теперь представьте себе ТАКОЙ вот сейф. Тут наличие ключей, как мне кажется, вряд ли как-то поможет. Да и ножовкой такую стенку тоже не выпилишь. (Это уже другая история, но, напомню, что в комнатных и оружейных сейфах толщина стенок может составлять всего 1,2 мм)

А какой сейф предпочли бы вы?
