Since we're leftists, there shouldn't be many differences ideologically, but our community has its own jargon and idiosyncrasies which might be jarring to outsiders. Second, although we allow slurs, we are anti-bigotry and it will not be tolerated. Thirdly, the board has an anti-idpol rule. Meaning that discussion of idpol topics is not allowed. There is some flexibility. Where that flexibility is also requires some time to get the feel of it. Fourthly, don't put anything in the name, or email fields.

rich communists Anonymous 11/27/2020 (Fri) 22:53:27 No. 1176850 [Reply] [Last]
Is it possible for a rich person to be a communist? How much money is too much money to be welcome in the revolution?

I do think about this sometimes on a personal level. If I got rich somehow I wouldn't be able to just forget the fact the world is fucked due to these reasons. I don't know if people who catually get rich just forget about this though.
Rich failsons like Engels are communists. If you work in tech or for Goldman or Private Equity stacking cash you'd become a brunch neoliberal in no time.

>>1177226 >She appeals to a left audience She never did, at best a lib audience, but nothing overtly pro-socialism.
>>1177218 Well I mean as the guy who you replied to I am not even an ML. That being said that isn't going to happen until all the boomer establishment Dems die and by that time the ecological timer is probably gonna be up. What the next revolution's ideology is yet to be seen, but it's probably not gonna be a 20th century ideology if it's Marxist. It could be anarchist tho as I see more support for them IRL than MLs (Tho thats a pretty low bar and theyre still pretty unpopular). We have no idea what the upcoming years will hold but relying on dems to do shit is a terrible idea.

"Leftists are pedophile apologists" Anonymous 11/21/2020 (Sat) 19:17:19 No. 1158335 [Reply] [Last]
New here, so don't know if this is a worn out topic, but where does this reactoid idea of leftists being pedophile apologists come from? Is it just pure projection? An antisemitic trope? It's absolutely bonkers considering /pol/tards spam CP in every forum they raid, are the ones who constantly have threads claiming it's natural for grown men to be attracted to underage girls, and over-whelmingly right-leaning looksmax/incel forums like pic related regularly host jailbait threads.

>>1177212 You're entertaining the slippery slope fallacy fallacy. We stopped putting homos in prison and now they can get married and buy children from Russia, and they did it all incrementally using each capitulation as a justification for their next goal, it's like society got caught in some kind of greasy incline.
>>1177224 > now they can get married and buy children from Russia Just like the hetreos... really brings a tear to my eye.
>>1177199 No, the left definitely does that now and smears anyone as a bigot if they think serializing children is child abuse. Can't wait for the left to hang, especially you white leftist baizuos.

Accidentally elected leader of a 200+ org with no organising experience. What do? Anonymous 11/26/2020 (Thu) 01:28:27 No. 1171034 [Reply] [Last]
I recently have been involved in a tenants union, formed mainly by anarchist and students. I've worked retail all my life and never really had to manage things other than maybe my own personal budgeting. I got elected the chair of the tenant union, since there was some beef between the other two people who ran for the position and someone nominated me instead. They don't know my political (Maoist) and I am now managing a group of 200 people in a town of about 80,000. I don't want to fuck this up. Can /leftypol/ give me any advice? Anything from guides to checklists, or just tips on how to manage medium sized organisations. I'm used to doing book clubs with 10 people max. I'm kind of our of my depth here, and just want to learn to lead good. Thanks for any advice!

>>1176378 The other part I meant to say with the neighbourhood committees is, this is where the peoples war aspect comes into play, what you want to do is concentrate your forces in certain small areas, to maximise their effect there, then take the model that you build in these places and move into new areas. Now, with 200 people you can probably do this in at least a couple neighbourhoods at once, but you want to build solidly in those neighbourhoods, so while 10 people might be a branch, you are looking for more people than that in each neighbourhood, that is just to start with.
>>1176378 All great advice. How long have you been organising for?
this thread is fucking gold
>>1171034 Just don't promise unrealistic stuff, but fight for an increase in your union rights and to prevail your union's own rights.
>>1176007 >I just fucking can't stand organising with students here. There is just a lack of professionalism & they just derail meetings with inside jokes, or bad jokes about book chin or something. kek

>>1177217 I'll admit, I'm not super informed on this issue, but pro-natalism under capitalism seems like a bad idea considering it can't provide for the current population, and feeds off of a reserve army of unemployed proles. I'm not denying that the earth has the capacity to sustainably support much more people under a planned economy, but "breeding like rabits" under the present material conditions seems like a bad idea.

Trotsky Anonymous 11/28/2020 (Sat) 00:52:44 No. 1177092 [Reply] [Last]
Trotsky did not do ONE thing wrong. All of his criticisms were on-point, and he was a hero that died for the international proleteriat. He also never thought the struggle between him and Stalin was a personal one, or that the problems of the USSR were Stalin's fault: >It is impossible by a mere individual . . . effort to escape from the web of the social lie -p. 438 from Trotsky's "Biography of Lenin, Volume I" in Edmund Wilson's 2003 translation

(114.89 KB 1145x827 StalinBuiltUpTheLand.jpg)
Stalin's views were on point, industrialization was the number one concern of the USSR and his successors not focusing on catching up with western indistry was a key factor in the collapse of the Comecon. Stalin's biggest flaw was he didn't sent Khrushchev and Brezhnev to gulag and build a bigger cult around himself after WWII to make it easy for the USSR to transform into Juche and follow in the footsteps of Kim Il-sung

>>1177114 leave the poor trot alone >>1177092 trotskyism is a dead end, i've watched so many people throw years of their live into trotskyist organisations only to end up burned out husks. Sure, can happen with MLs too, but theirs just something about the trotskyist zealous that destroy their lives and personal relationships. Patiently practice the mass line, be humble, and understand you alone can't save the world. Trotskyists have this idea that if only we have the correct position, this perfect blue print for the road to socialism -- then we just have to fill it in!!! How's that working out for you? Trots can barely self-crit at all and just seem to be stuck in a rut. I have a lot of sympathy for Trots though. They just have the wrong answers to the correct questions. I also don't want to be sectarian and just stay that Trotsky himself was some evil lunatic. I just know that studying him seems to turn people into Permanent Revolution Jihadis. Idk, please try and prove me wrong /anon/

Jenny Marx's Questionnaire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anonymous 11/27/2020 (Fri) 11:55:57 No. 1175577 [Reply] [Last]
Jenny Marx™, the daughter of Karl Marx™, created a questionnaire which she invited important people to take, among them her father, Leó Frankel, etc. In all honesty, it's a silly little questionnaire, however it does reflect one person's priorities and such. I would like to invite you to take this questionnaire (see template below). I will also try to find "famous people" who took it, and post them, just to maintain the thread and such. Please use your appropriate flag while answering, so that the community could mock you, etc. Jenny's questionnaire (Template. Please copy-paste the following and insert your own answers under after the orange meme arrow.) >The Quality you like best < >The Quality you like best in man < >The Quality you like best in woman < >Your chief characteristic < >Your favourite occupation < >The vice you hate most <

>>1177197 Yeah yeah yeah whatever.The sins of the father is not the sins of the son. Might as well shoot Engels if that is the case.
>>1177189 >You are evading my point by claiming that everyone who prefers an "active" quality in a woman is actually doing a deliberate subversion But again, for the nth time, you are deliberately missing the point, you obnoxious asshole. My point is not that "le wymmyn can't be active" or what fucking ever. My point is that you took the pre-given and essentially patriarchal value-set and inverted it, and now you think that you are progressive or some shit. I've literally explained this to you like 3 times already above, so I'll stop responding to you, because you seem to get off at pretending to be mentally challenged.
>>1177175 >No. I'm literally saying that Nature is fucking evil and something we have been struggling with since the conception of our species, and ultimately a force we should master and subsume. In other words I'm literally saying that nature is a heartless whore and we should leave her, k? Unironically take a hike. Get out of this thread
>>1177205 I get what your saying but what I am trying to explain to you is that having an emotional reaction every time someone puts "women" and "active quality" next to each other, makes you come across as a sexist. I can agree with you that it is annoying when people deliberately do the woman stronk shit, but this was not the case in this thread.
>>1177210 This is the most spot on thing he's said this entire thread. Regardless of his infantile behavior I must approve of this as the correct Marxist stance. However it is not relevant, go make a thread about it, or check /edu/ for the ecology thread since it has all the material you need to learn about this.

Kruschev and Brezhnev by far best of the best Communist leaders Anonymous 11/25/2020 (Wed) 22:10:03 No. 1170492 [Reply] [Last]
Every single Communist leader has a dark side or weren't capable enough to do more but Kruschev and Brezhnev there is nothing bad to say about them and thanks to them USSR went so far from such a crippled nation it used to be after so many disasters through and Stalin's fanaticism, under them USSR became more urbanized and industrialized, the economy got stronger, the living standards were some of the best, USSR dominated space race and been a great pioneer in so many types of researches, put all imperialists on their knees with one test the Tsar bomb and freed so many nations to get rid of imperialists through their big help with military training and hardware so after all how aren't they appreciated and talked more or used as examples when they deserve that the most?
