/leftypol/ in the 4chan Cup /pol/eague Anonymous Comrade 06/14/2020 (Sun) 23:12:53 No. 10546 [Reply] [Last]
/leftypol/ has gotten to the finals of the most recent poleague! https://implyingrigged.info/wiki//leftypol/ However, this team is actually run and controlled by ULP... The poleague has asked us however if we would be interested in either joining together with ULP (if they agree) to manage the team, or possibly just creating a separate team of our own. However, none of the mods can really take on the responsibility right now, so is there anyone else who is interested in being involved with this? ULP's team is pretty cool, they have custom models, custom music, and all sorts, so there's definitely a lot of scope to experiment with the engine (blender models can be imported into the game). Thanks for your attention!

>>10267 I used to play it religiously as a kid; a friend introduced to me to it way back in 2005. All of my old nations are gone however. The key to having "fun" is getting involved in any region of your choice, which at that point it becomes full larp. I made a new nation not too long ago but I'm not nearly as involved as I used to be. Invasions still appear to still be a thing though which is interesting. >>10284 https://www.nationstates.net/nation=colony_drop

What should I do with my money? Anonymous Comrade 04/22/2020 (Wed) 02:18:29 No. 8703 [Reply] [Last]
I have like 100€ at the end of each month. I have no clue, what I should do with it. I have no expensive hobbies (well, I like to play games on my PC, but buying PC-components seems like a waste of money to me). The existence of the internet has basically killed most reasons, to spend money. What would you do?

Fantasy Anonymous Comrade 12/14/2019 (Sat) 01:25:48 No. 3288 [Reply] [Last]
Often when when talking about leftist fiction, it is in relation to speculative science fiction.
I'd like to have a thread to discuss not only fantasy with leftist themes, but fantasy in general.

So, read any good fantasy recently?

Is Steven Universe liberal? I think it is because it propagates the notion that you can solve issues in society by talk no jutsu.

>>10300 >EXPZ is Oddguy from Encyclopedia Dramatica Source? >>10075 Because people sometimes don't know whats actual quality if they don't have the education and availability of it. People are crazy for The Loud House and SU, both shallow series that mascarade as having "deep messages" which is utter horseshit and even if it were true, the format and actual visual media presented undercuts this. You can't have something that works both for babies and more mature children because their needs are contradictory. Ben 10 (OS) is a show aimed at 10 yer olds, its not super-deep but it carries some basic good messages and conveys a coherent, fun story with a kid being an alien superhero, and in the process of being one, learning his weaknesses and developing as a character. Steven Universe has a similar concept Stevens dad being someone connected to the whole Gems/aliens like Grandpa Max, and Connie (supposed to) be the smarter mature foil to Steven, like Gwen is to Ben, or the Gems are Stevens main 'power' like the Omnitrix is for Ben. However the difference is execution. The animations is worse, the art-design is lazy. The characters are unsympathetic; Connie comes off as too meek, like a flat imitation of Katara from ATLA rather than Gwen's haughty yet usually correct assertiveness, Steven is an infantile whiner who sounds like someone took the Naruto dub and put it through a wringer 3 or 5 times and acts like a child 1/2 his age, the Gems, being independent 'persons' have their own characters unlike the Omnitrix alien forms, however they act like a band of ideologues and might as well be NPCs controlled by Steven, something pointed out by Peridot when analyzing the cluster. Steven's Dad is a mix between a hippie, and a yuppie who lost his property in alimony payments and generally is useless. Neither assertive enough to tell Steven off for shitty behavior, nor does he have specific powers or knowledge, It would have been easier to just have him be gone. The themes are contradictory and in the attempt to be "DEEEEP" ends up being shallow and boring. TL;DR: people used to shit content are going to like and want shit content and part of being leftist is to analyze and assess the validity and quality of what we consume, preventing us from degrading to where any shite blob on the screen is "entertainment" (like the Emoji movie or other rubbish), this is why we cannot withhold criticism of quality.

Buildings should last Anonymous Comrade 05/13/2020 (Wed) 20:57:19 No. 9523 [Reply] [Last]
So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments. We should rebuild some of them as well. People don't just have utilitarian needs and need a "spiritual" or imaginative side which is opposed to efficiency but which startles you. https://youtu.be/09gsVlroH3A

>>9826 >requires too much labor time today Bullshit, modern technology makes doing this a cinch in comparison. It's just not profitable since construction makes its bread and mutter on the need to repair and replace older architechture.
>>9523 >Buildings should last LSC makes this impossible for now.
Or we could go the full primitive route and build with bamboo and concrete. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6uGgfJGxo0

Why is modern architecture so shit? It has so little aesthetic and even less purpose.

/leftyco/ Anonymous Comrade 12/22/2019 (Sun) 14:36:18 No. 4670 [Reply] [Last]
Seeing how there’s multiple /co/ related threads on the board. I think we should just put all of them into one general just for clarity’s sake. Discuss anything related to comics and animations from comic recs, leftist animations to comic writers’ attempts to larp as leftists. Seriously is there a worse anarchist in the UK than Alan Moore?

In other news, due to huge disruption by the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, Diamond distribution now no longer holds the monopoly on comics. Is this a sign of AT&T and Disney moving into further monopoly that removes 3rd party completely? https://sys.4channel.org/derefer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hollywoodreporter.com%2Fheat-vision%2Fdc-cuts-ties-diamond-comic-distribution-1297309

Art Deco Anonymous Comrade 06/30/2020 (Tue) 07:19:25 No. 11008 [Reply] [Last]
http://markluskin.blogspot.com/2011/03/from-archive-dark-deco-by-dr-michael.html?m=1 <the Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls. Post pics of your favourite pieces of art deco. Pic related: Hoover building, A40 (Western Avenue), London, England.

>>11181 Interesting,those look monumental,and would make the viewer feel small and insignificant, in comparison. But I would say it's in much the same way as a big slabby prison or cop house would.* They would be intimidating to view, but not in a particularly other-worldly way, not in the way that art deco might. I'd suggest this is true of fascist /Nazi aesthetics in general. They basically ripped off what they could from the esoteric, and made it exoteric. I suppose the counter-argument would be art deco ripped off the esoteric too, but in the service of consumerism. I guess it's just a matter of opinion what survives after being recuperated. *Pic-related MI6 building in Vauxhall, London,is an exception, and has more of a deco look to it. But I would argue it's the exception that proves the rule; a deliberate attempt to lull the public .

My general strat is >Set economic plan to "Economic productivity" (I dont know what it actually is but the econ preset that has cash and a stonk line going up) >Stop sending "envelopes" to everyone these are apparently meant to be bribes and they drastically increase state corruption and lower income overtime >Spam economic / Agricultural tech straight off the bat obviously select depending on your preferred economic course >Pump money into the Army and the KGB early on. Army so you can wreck pakistan and save the DPRA and invite india into the COMECON. KGB so you can help unify Korea make japan neutral etc etc etc Now the best possible choices imo? >Blockade south Africa then support the council of trade unions. this makes an ANC-CPSA-TUC alliance come to power and makes them pro-soviet >Save Qaddafi and invite him and Syria to the COMECON early. Once the egyptian election event happens just 'Condemn the Goverment' this with Libya and Syria helping you lets a coalition of the Communists and Nasserists come back to power >Send Weapons to Afghanistan DO NOT launch operation typhoon send guns to India and help them invade pakistan AFTER you invite China to the comecon this lets India seize Kashmir and you can form a comecon that stretches from Afghanistan to India and China. Bomb the Pakistani militant bases this should eliminate almost all the rebels in Afghanistan. >Send Saddam weapons but still condemn the US downing the Iranian air-lines flight in the event straight after. >Use Stronk KGB to take down the South Korean Junta and unify the Korea's (Also take the event to unify Yemen and if your playing as a big enough lib Germany neutral nations while not contributing you also take away power from NATO) >If your playing as Andropov / A new Stalin then just wait for the Cambodia event to fire and ally with /pol/pot loyalists to instantly get Cambodia in COMECON otherwise send them guns and money and invite them to COMECON beforehand or they become a monarchy again and neutral. >Ally with China. The minor cool of factor of getting Maoists in charge isnt worth cost of a balkanized PRC >During the Japan event. Use Stronk KGB and a bunch of funds to force Japan out of the US sphere and to demilitarize. >Now for these next ones you will need to save up an absolute fuckton of gold reserves. >Use KGB + Funds to prosecute Pinochet.
