>>1029808 >Northern Europeans are vitamin D deficient at a higher level than other more southern places why is this? probably because they stay inside all day trying to convert reactionaries to leftism >you mean, the CIA and other intelligence services and there use of the right wing to destroy the left through these groups wait, why do you want to invite them in again? >Seems like as good a use of time as dunking on anarchists or something In abstract sure, but this isn't in abstract, it is part of a consistent trend of trying to bring on reactionaries and other assorted internet weirdos under the false presumption they might ever change, when you can never logic a person out of a position they didn't logic themselves into. reactionary beliefs are pathological, and there is no way to get rid of those beliefs online, people will just log off when their pathological beliefs are challenged and revalidate them via talking to other people which are like-minded. >burden of proof my guy is on you are you retarded? the site doesn't have (you)s so its not like I could even verify a post as mine, if you are really so interested go ask a mod. >the last raid was a resounding success, everyone agrees. in that we didn't raid and the /pol/acks all left after getting buttmad. it was a success insofar as we just made them angry, they invaded here, encountered resistance, and went away. nothing like your incredibly dumb recruitment program. >We only get them by converting reactionaries (basically everybody who is not a communist is reactionary to some degree it why /pol/ is popular) 1. most people on /leftypol/ are not ex-reactionary. its a board mythology that just isn't true, from all my experiences talking to people. there are really just a very small minority of them that only have some over-representation because of the massive attrition we suffered from the split. they aren't even a plurality of membership, nor are newer members generally ex-reactionaries either. they are a negligible at best source of recruitment, if they even recruit correctly. but most of them seem to inevitably show their reactionary stripes again, for the reasons I have described. 2. not everyone is a reactionary. maybe quit projecting? but there are plenty of people who are socially-progressive without a clear understanding of class - while this dooms them to never achieve their social-progressive goals, their hearts are in the right place, and they are easy converts if you can show them how their tactics fail. aka, actually doing logical arguments which permanently impact their way of thinking, as opposed to reactionaries who only act by emotional impulse.
>>1029841 >probably because they stay inside all day trying to convert reactionaries to leftism better than staying inside all day to not do that. >wait, why do you want to invite them in again? why do i want the CIA to have less easy meat to do their bidding? >under the false presumption they might ever change, when you can never logic a person out of a position they didn't logic themselves into. im not saying you can, its a process of long time exposure in a non threatening environment, which is what we provide. >reactionary beliefs are pathological some of them are, some of them are just ignorance. Many people are actually open to learning. >nothing like your incredibly dumb recruitment program. our numbers got a permanent bump and some of them stayed so yes, exactly like that. >1. most people on /leftypol/ are not ex-reactionary.

You fuckwits. If you made /leftypol/ the name of the /b/ board, you won't have to spend hours and hours moving threads from this board once the election counting starts and shitposters arrive from other sites.

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.

>>1019152 >this doubles vertical clutter even on a desktop monitor valid complaint but I doubt this will encourage people to post more images at once. Rather, it will make it easier for people to post in one single post all the images they would have had to upload into two separate posts before.

New Multitude- The relaunch Anonymous 10/19/2020 (Mon) 08:03:23 No. 1013137 [Reply] [Last]
1. New site is up https://newmultitude.org/ you can support the site at https://www.patreon.com/newmultitude (the plan is for original translations to be patreon exclusive for a length of time before they are up on the site) 2. Do you have something unique, helpful or funny to say? please get in touch. I will help you write your article. I am a college teacher by trade (specifically sociology and social studies) so even if you have no experience in writing, I can help edit your piece. What we want: unique theory, guides and explainers of both classic and new theory, translations, scene guides, news explainers from people on the ground, book reviews, etc 3. Global Scope. Let's face it, there are hundreds of similar sites out there that cover US/UK politics. There's nothing wrong with that and we will continue to accept western submission, but we would REALLY like to build on a niche that is missing: a truly global site with analysis and news from around the world. If it's not you, perhaps you know someone from your local scene who is a good writer? 4. Translations. I want to start putting up a translation a month of work that has hitherto gone untranslated into English. This could be classic articles or new authors and can be hard theory or even short stories, news analysis or even poems. It would be amazing if leftypol could help source some candidates for translation. 5. Promotion. I'll be honest I have no idea how to do this. We have a twitter account twitter.com/newmultitude but not many followers and I see other leftist magazines getting loads of followers. Does anyone have experience in this or have any suggestions? 6. finally, thank you to all the artists and writers and supporters who have helped with the launch. There are some great writers and people on leftypol and I want to extend my thanks to you in getting this project off the ground. Solidarity!

>>1014383 The last thread kind of defaulted to that structure because some people posted their drafts in pastebins and random anons would make comments. I still think that is a good structure, and with how slow the threads are it may even be tenable to continue keeping discussions on new articles within the thread rather than trying to move off the board. The only major downside I'd see at the moment is that the board is getting attacked, so if the board itself were to be down temporarily or indefinitely it would disrupt the commenting process. The other problem would be maintaining versions, but that doesn't seem like an issue right now. As in, it could get confusing if separate people are making edits to the same article and posting them parallel to each other. I know you can just have people work on the same document through google docs etc. but I'm unfamiliar with tools for tracking changes and having a document admin that could accept some changes and reject others. As it is though, people have just been recommending changes through posts and it seems like the NM editor may make more detailed changes to articles off the board.

I know you can just have people work on the same document through google docs etc. but I'm unfamiliar with tools for tracking changes and having a document admin that could accept some changes and reject others. Git and other source code version control systems do exactly that, but there's a small technical hump in getting people to use it.
I have been translating a book. I don't know. When I reach 3/4 I would reach to you to post it by chapters. After that I don't know. Maybe send it to the circles interested on people's revolutions and stuff, but like a dummy with good format and with a bunkerchan logo. To leave a good impresion,etc,etc,etc.
>>1014383 this is what I did with the snowpiercer article and also the dengism one too one thing I would like to ask people to help with when editing or curating is suggesting theory or analysis that will help flesh out pieces and give them depth. So instead of just saying "this is good/this is bad" (but say that too!) I would like people to say "hey have you read X because they said something similar/different" or "Y gave an example of this.."

“Material conditions” Anonymous 10/24/2020 (Sat) 00:15:04 No. 1029946 [Reply] [Last]
What actually are material conditions? I see it thrown around as a critique of anarchism, but I don’t know what it is. So, what the fuck does material conditions mean? (Not trolling legitimately want to know)
>>1029946 Material conditions just describe, the thing that is (and not what might be or should be).
It's a "get out of jail free" buzzword for tankies. Your idols did anything wrong? Material conditions.

the nuclear option against 4chan Anonymous 10/23/2020 (Fri) 23:54:55 No. 1029887 [Reply] [Last]
https://www.wired.com/2015/09/4chan-sold/ Hiroyuki Nishimura seems to be worth <$10 million USD. Is there really not a single Democrat who can step forward to buy the site? I understand that the Dems are not our comrades, but I cannot think of anyone better to buy the site than Mike Bloomberg, who spent $1 billion on his own vanity campaign for the Democratic Leadership. Shuttering /pol/ and normalising the politics of the site would be good for us. Alternatively, we could convince Tencent to buy it, which would be even better.

Can we get get a europe general? I'm kinda curious what's going on in the countries of my fellow europeans, but I feel like having a general for each seperate country, with each speaking their own language segregates us further fellow euro brothers and sisters. So dump news, banter, events, feels, and so on and so on Let's create a beter general than /USApol/
