(Translated from a post by another anon in /ref/)
Right now, as the boards are organized in Bunkerchan, there is:
, where people go to talk about leftist topics in general. That is, they go there to discuss theory and praxis in general terms, to discuss the socialist and anarchist experiments of the past (The USSR, the Iron Curtain countries, the Spanish civil war, Chile) and today (The Confederalists of Rojava, the dengists in China, Bolivarian Venezuela, Cuba, etc).
is basically its own thing, it is not to discuss socialist theory, it is basically the resting room, the cafe or the Bunkerchan bar, you go there to shitpost or post things that do not concern the socialist movement. You go there to have fun, not to cultivate yourself.
>>>/hobby/ >>>/games/ >>>/roulette/
And the rest are just boards for, well, hobbies and whatever comes out in Roulette that day. Here I also add >>>/gulag/
because it does not serve for Marxism, but serves to meta discussion about the site.
>>> /REF/, belonging to the GETchan branch within Bunkerchan. In theory, it serves so that there can be respective threads for each nationality, well, better said for each language, taking into account that the /hispa/ thread corresponds to all the Spanish-speaking countries, all of which have different problems and different conditions , which makes the thread quite difficult to follow. At the same time, being inside the /GET/ field makes your threads become difficult terrain to walk on because there really is no serious discussion. /REF/ is organized to fool around with a little flag when you post, things like the thread of the local cuisine or the thread to learn languages go as a custom suit for /REF/, but a speaking thread Hispanic, or a German-speaking thread, apart from shitposting, really do not have any use apart of that.
And that's where we get at the topic at hand, why it is necessary to make regional boards for each region, or at least, for each anguage. tell from this very thread (/hispa/), how many communist parties have you joined, what is the situation in your own country, and so on. At most you will have the knowledge of an average, normal and ordinary communist, of your nation, or even less, because we focus on /leftypol/, we focus on communist theory, instead of focusing on the situation in our own countries and the events that occur in them.
We can see such a thing, as a communist movement develops, within it /leftypol/ for the Yankees. The gringos, being so many on the Internet, almost make the American question central and /leftypol/ becomes /burger/ without we realizing it, since with so many Americans, the US becomes, by default, the navel of the world, both Americans and those who are not, are inadvertently participating in /burger/, not / leftypol/.
Because of this, there needs to be boards that serve as local meeting places, for communists belonging to a region or a language. Spanish Communists should focus on Spanish problems, not post in English on how Americans should solve their own problems. Well, you can do both, and in fact you must, the problem is that you are not doing the first, while you are only doing the second.
Another problem with the current organization of the boards is their language. Here everyone speaks in the lingua franca, this being English, but as we can corroborate, not everyone knows English. While learning English, at least in bunkerchan, is fundamental, the English barrier is a filter through which only those who know not only how to read, but also write English without making a fool of themselves can pass. I have often had to write posts in / leftypol / with the post window on one side and the google translator on the other because I don't have as much English vocabulary as I would like.
That is why it is necessary for Bunkerchan to start developing boards for, at least, different languages. Of course, not all languages will be there, but those that are more active, such as a board for the Spanish community, the German community or the British community. I know that there are at least 3 guys who are French, so there would also be an excuse to make a /baguette/ for the gabachos.
If we want to grow as a network and as a communist movement on the web, we need to develop regional boards, language boards, for socialism and for Marxism.
Thanks for coming to my Ted-Talk.
