Any thoughts on the current podcast on russian revolution by Mike Duncan? (https://www.revolutionspodcast.com/) Any other interesting podcasts to listen to?

>Any thoughts on the current podcast on russian revolution by Mike Duncan? (https://www.revolutionspodcast.com/) Sounds interesting. I might give it a listen. >Any other interesting podcasts to listen to? Both have been talked about and recommended on /leftypol/ a ton, but: Moderate Rebels -- Good anti-imperialist pod by the Grayzone guys Cumtown -- Funny (Stav is fat, gay and a pedophile) Does anyone know of any good film podcasts that aren't just people talking about the big, new, English language releases and the same old, 80s, cult b-movies? I want something that has a bit more variety with some foreign films and films from the 60s and earlier.
http://generalintellectunit.net/ General Intellect Unit, cybernetic Marxist podcast. They examine "the intersection of Technology, (Left) Politics, and Philosophy". Just found out these guys. They seem interesting.
Am I strange for thinking podcasts are largely boring?

>>11580 do they talk about the FOSS movement?

How does Leftypol feel about Rick and Morty? Anonymous Comrade 06/08/2020 (Mon) 18:18:10 No. 10321 [Reply] [Last]
Tbh I liked it at first but imo Rick is too much of an unlikable sociopath, Jerry is too pathetic, the show comes off as simultaneously too self-important and too mocking of its fans who overrate it. Nonetheless it's overrated with absolutely autistic fans, and the whole sechzuan debacle, my God....

>>10332 this tbqh. It's like American Dad! or South Park: a so-so show with some funny moments.
>>10714 American Dad was absolutely based and the only one of the three that made me laugh out loud in recent years. Honorable mention to Bojack for making me feel like utter shit

>>10321 I liked the first season, but the second was so meh that I stopped watching it. Rick felt like an updated version of a drunken Homer Simpson, with that cynical Gen X humor (even though he's supposed to be smart.) So the first season felt like watching the Simpsons again, before the Simpsons stopped being funny. I think that's why the show had so much appeal. I can't name any other current cartoons that fit the Sinpsons animated sitcom niche so closely.

Trolling So-cal businesses by recording bosses for no reason Anonymous Comrade 06/02/2020 (Tue) 09:01:57 No. 10158 [Reply] [Last]
https://youtu.be/aauFUWkKoc8 All he's doing is filming their building. But it's funny as hell to see these industrial workers panic and trying to intimidate the camera man, and then summon a boss, and finally cops. At one point they even try to block his view into the building by getting employees to stand around blocking the view with a piece of cardboard. It really drives home how so many of these bosses act like mafia bosses that have to protect their pride by stopping the camera man.

these videos are hilarious. I had no idea that "First amendment audits" were a thing.
Reminds me of this classic series: >Surveillance Camera Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP5ZVPwP7bg Could be interesting if it was subverted to specifically cover business owners, I fully support this subversion.

Comradely reminder that if you go into a store that you think may try and swindle you, record them.

I found this pro-US army site called Wearethemighty and holy fuck is it a bucket of laughs. The Sukhoi Su-25 is now apparently a copy of the Northrop A-9 and therefore loses to the A-10 warthog because it carries less weapons. (despite not presenting any feats on the Su-25 and some vague shit on the A-10) https://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/the-battle-of-the-tank-busters-frogfoot-versus-warthog The idea that the Su-25 is a YA-9 ripoff is hilarious considering how they are only superficially similar. The Su-25 was the winner of a competition between Illyushin and Sukhoi based on their experience with the soviet pioneered shturmovik concept. https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/meet-the-ilyushin-il-102-the-most-gorgeously-ugly-comb-1601030964 The 2 aircraft are honestly incomparable to one another: https://battle-machines.org/2015/07/26/a-10-thunderbolt-ii-vs-su-25-frogfoot/

Naruto Anonymous Comrade 04/29/2020 (Wed) 00:22:39 No. 8919 [Reply] [Last]
Is Naruto liberal or is it reactionary? Its obviously not leftist because they constantly defend a feudal government.
2 posts omitted.
>>8919 >obviously not leftist because they constantly defend a feudal government They don't do that though. The Daimyo stuff is just Japanese LARP and has almost 0 influence on the actual story or world-building. Naruto isn't really about politics relevant to any modern ideology. Their society is essentially a constant Cold War, bordering on hot. This is the background of worldbuilding but is less relevant to the actual plot since the focus is human interactions and conflict; Loneliness and Friendship, Genius and Hardwork, bravery vs fool hardiness, and accepting facts of life or defying them. Politics did become relevant in things like the Chunin exams and the theme about World Peace (Nagato vs Naruto), but again more in the background aspect of political games of diplomacy and war. For example in Naruto one of the earliest themes was that of Naruto's reason to fight. He started off like a child wanting attention. Then the Land of Waves Arc occurred and he gained a real reason: Fighting to defend his precious people. This evolved into his idea that to be Hokage he must protect the entire village, because the entire village, no matter how they viewed him, were precious to him, because to lead properly, you have to care for the people you're leading, so as to not end up like Danzo (Glownigger Inc), sacrificing everyone to get the political advantage. Back to Land of Waves, Kakashi and Zabuza tell him that to be a shinobi is to be a tool and thus they should kill their emotions... yet it is impossible to truly do and is wrong, and Naruto declares defiance of this. This isn't some Communist ideal, but it is a human fight for betterment. If you have any more specific questions ask away, Imma head out for now.
>>8927 What about all the anti-war stuff? Naruto seems deeply anti-war, every discussion of the wars of the past are mostly how horrible they are and every scene of the three world wars is tragic or brutal. How do you feel about it’s stance on war?
(48.25 KB 1280x720 kakashi at memorial stone 1.jpg)
>>8934 It's definitely anti-war, however it doesn't exclude the necessity of it sometimes. An occasionally unavoidable and necessary evil if you will. The stance on war is also realistic. It isn't the feined pacifism of liberal diplomats who just preach about utopian idealisms, it is a genuine statement on avoiding war and related conflict because of its horrific results, and the lack of consideration for innocent, bystanding people that often occurs (Pain's speech demonstrates this well). Unlike American depictions of war, and similar to Soviet depictions, War in Naruto is brutal and horrific. There can be heroes and good causes, but is a human tragedy regardless. TL;DR: It is right about War, and matches Soviet attitudes towards it. Hail your heroes and try not to let their sacrifices go in vain, so that new sacrifices will not have to be made.

Loyal parents who sacrificed so much for the nation Never feared the ultimate fate. Now that the country has become red, who will be its guardian? Our mission, unfinished, may take a thousand years. The struggle tires us, and our hair is grey. You and I, old friends, can we just watch our efforts be washed away?

I'm a poetryfag and "Lenin" by Langston Hughes is one of my favorites. Short and simple but it always gets me: Lenin walks around the world Frontiers cannot bar him Neither barracks nor barricades impede Nor does barbed wire scar him Lenin walks around the world Black, brown, and white receive him Language is no barrier The strangest tongues believe him Lenin walks around the world The sun sets like a scar Between the darkness and the dawn There rises a red star

Reposting >kept getting aggressively recommended to me in ads on Facebook, so I decided to check it out …I have some poem just for you right here, buddy. ''OP waited. The light of his e-cig blinked. There were trolls lurking in the thread. He didn't see them, but had expected them, now for hours. His warnings to the mods were not listened to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway. OP was an internet user aged fourteen. When he was younger he watched the threads on imageboards and he said to dad "I want to make the threads, daddy." Dad said "NO! YOU WILL BE BULLIED BY TROLLS!" There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got older he stopped.
