Starting from nothing Comrade 11/05/2018 (Mon) 21:22:34 [Preview] No. 7221 [Reply]
I come from a small E.European country(Latvia) and while it does have a long history with leftist politics nowadays all resemblances of it have disappeared and I mean all. I have searched all throughout Facebook, Reddit and some local social media platforms but with no avail. No leftist parties, no actual leftists, nothing. So what are my best options if I want to do something productive? Go to somewhat leftist rallies and try to radicalize someone? How can I do something literally by myself? I have a pretty good understanding of marxist theory... that's not the problem. Any advice?

ps. If any leftists from Latvia see this please reach out to me...

Esmu priecīgs redzīt citus leftistus no latvijas. Un žēl ka mums nav reālas strādnieku kustības valstī. Bet domāju jo vairāk cilvēki redzēs kapitālisma patieso seju jo vairāk viņi sapratīs ka Ļenins un Stāļins nebija sliktie.
The worker's movement comes from workers, not mothers, not blacks, or anything else, coming together for themselves.
Start a group. Don't call your group anything with "party" or "revolutionary" in the name, because it's extremely unlikely that you'll be big soon, and so having these words in the name would make you look delusional.

I live in a country with lots of parties and various small radical groups. There is a common horrendous habit of radicals (also of moderate parties, but more so with radicals) that they carry tons of pamphlets, books, etc. to all sorts of events where these things are offtopic. The reason they carry it is because they rather not throw it in the trash. This is a mistake. You don't like offtopic spam in online discussions. People certainly don't like the offline equivalent of that either. Make pamphlets that directly relate to the protest you are attending or don't bring any.

Don't sell newspapers. DON'T SELL NEWSPAPERS. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT EVER DOING THAT. Don't. Don't sell magazines or booklets. Ever. You want to reach people. A person reading your stuff is doing you a huge favor, is giving you attention, a limited resource, don't ask them to also pay money on top of that.

What's your thoughts on university, necessary or just stealing your money?
Under the current sytem, defo just stealing your money
University should be an option for those who want to achieve higher education, but it should be free and not put you thousands in debt.
Overall there should be more diverse career paths, since rn its all theoretical. you won't have a real image of the average working environment until you finish your education. this is a massive problem

"they dont have the exact niche ideology i have and dont act absolutely perfectly the way i want them to" is not an exscuse. get organised and get fighting or risk the lives of thousands of innocent.

Hello friend, I've come to talk with you again.

/leftpol/ is being destroyed by your lack of any leadership, there are seemingly no mods at all, or at least none that do anything, and you don't even reply to messages in the mod topic that are there for days. You even yourself say that 'you can only look at it on weekends' because of work, which is fine, I guess, if you at least pay enough attention to install a good mod team which can report back any urgent issues to you. Your rulership of /leftpol/ is absolutely unacceptable so I've decided to post on a chan you actually give a shit about in the hope you might do something. I honestly wanted to like you and was optimistic but judging by this site you're not used to governing a board that actually has traffic. I'm not asking you to give up admin but please at least appoint 3-4 moderators from among the more sane IPs left to cover timezones and each other's off time so that we can take care of our own board. Thank you.

Does anybody have a torrent or download link for

Murray Smith's
Invisible Leviathan
Marx's Law of Value in the Twilight of Capitalism

Just came out a couple of days ago, but you can only get it off of brill publishing and over there it's 150 euros. I also don't want to read Kidman's cheaper take on the law of value because I don't care about that eggman.
>Over £100 for a ebook
And people wonder why piracy is a thing.

OP give it a month atleast since it's just released pirates are probably working on the DRM as we speak
I hate paying for things too. its really unfair when people expect to be paid for their work.
You're a pitiful dipshit.
