Hello everyone, I come here as a leftist, concerned with the state of affairs of the leftist presence on the internet. I'm going to go ahead and state what I am and what I what I believe, so I don't have to talk about in the comments. I am somewhat of an anarchist, I suppose. Maybe I'm a left-communist, who knows. I believe that society should work to benefit all people. I believe all people should be free, truly free, to do what they want to do, to find meaning in their lives, with out the intense struggle of modern life. My influences in leftism are Murray Bookchin, Noam Chomsky, Petyr Kropotkin, Marx, Engels, Rosa Luxemburg, and Slavoj Zizek. I am also influenced by Kierkegaard and Frankl. I believe everyone has a unique life experience, and their individual experience is why they are the way the are, why they believe what they believe, and they have a right to be that way. I am a cis, straight, white male, who comes from a middle class background. I try to understand people's perspective, and view life from their eyes, to better understand the people I interact with. I know I come from a situation of privilege, so I constantly look to challenge this and expand my perspective. I firmly believe there is a pervasive cloud of toxicity over the left-wing crowd. I don't know where to start. I guess I'll start with the echo-chambers. Every group has their own goddamn echo chamber. People go their to reinforce their own beliefs, without challenging their own. How do we grow from this? How do we progress? I often find myself enraged by the behavior of fascists, racists, bigots, whatever you want to call dumb fuck people with dumb fuck ideas, however I believe in perhaps trying to challenge their beliefs, in someway. Don't get me wrong, when a group of fascists comes out, chanting shit like "jews will not replace us", in full tactical gear, I understand the situation is different. These rallies should have a strong anti-fascist presence. I know which side I belong to in this regard, but on a personal level I think one can have a relationship or dialogue with someone. Recently, I was banned from r/Fuckthealtright because I mentioned this idea. I was initially angry, but then I just felt sad. Sad, because I felt ostracized from a group of people I actually agree with. Recently, I asked a question to r/DebateAnarchism in order to challenge my own perspective on race and what not. I got some conceited, arrogant answers, but I also received some genuine answers. Overall, I enjoyed the discussion, and i learned some new perspectives, I suppose. I know I am not perfect, and I have room to improve, and I think a lot of people should have this mindset.Secondly, there is the lifestylism. Oh god, oh fuck, the lifestylism. It seems like there is a constant competition to see who is the most leftwing, who is the most radical, who is the biggest victim. Just like, shit like that. I rarely see posts about solidarity with all people struggling. If I recall correctly, Murray Bookchin renounced his title of "anarchism" for this reason. People calling others "not true anarchists" because they didn't squat, or constantly break the law, or shit like that. It's toxic. It doesn't bring anything to the table. People see this cesspool and get so turned off by it. There are some very valuable ideas from Marxism, but people don't want to accept that becasue of the way we treat ourselves, and especially the way we treat others with differing viewpoints. I don't know, I guess I sound like a useful idiot or something, it just makes me sad to see all the circle-jerking going around, without any real human growth.

TL;DR: Left-leaning subreddits are huge circle-jerks that provide little substance and thought-provoking material. The way we treat ourselves and others is sad, and I see no progress being made to fix our fucked up society.
maybe start organizing irl

people online fucking suck
it's a lot more difficult to be condescending in person.

i think we need to be doing a lot more to make ourselves accessible to the general public, especially in these two years where the liberals are discontent (they tend to get a lot more complicit with the war crimes and cuts to social safety nets when ""our guy"" is in office)
The biggest problem on the left is lack of a unifying vision of what a post-capitalist world looks like. This makes it difficult to really inspire and excite people.

What does /leftypol/ make of Operation Blueism & Esoteric Entity soliticing cp to try and slander Bat'ko and the rest of lefttube? Why hasn't Bat'ko made any follow up videos? I found this ed page

Bat'ko is cancer. "Lefttube" fans are predominantly cancer. This is of no interest except for the extremely online idpol filth

How the fuck do you take on nazis
Indiscriminately and unwavering. Help the people around know that they are being actively betrayed by the fasco. You also have the opportunity of converting the Nazi (honestly they just fall in line with the powers that be because they are spineless scum). After all it's not about you, it's about the collective, and that would also includes the hypothetical fascist.
Finally a serious reply

Unironic nazbols are now a thing. When did that happen?
23 posts and 6 images omitted.
So basically, they're pieces of shit. I see.
Ever since /pol/ laid their eyes on it and couldn't tell the difference from a meme ideology to a real one.
it's a good thing.

nazbolism is just petty bourgeois socialism
