All sects on the left are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums might ban. However, this was only a minor consideration in the naming of /leftypol/. Since the concept is simply a leftist version of /pol/, the entire name of /pol/ was retained. >I'm not a leftist can I post here?

commiebois I have a question: how do you estimate use value? i just finished the 2nd chapter of Capital, does Marx say something about use value later?
are politicians proles or bourgeoisie?
>>406234 burgeois exists because of politicians. USSR had politicians, but they were not tools of the burgeoisie. politicians are not burgeois because they are part of the public sector (while the burgeoisie is part of the private sector), so they are not inherently burgeois. They can be easily corrupted to favor the burgeoisie over the prole tho. So basically, in a possible revolution, current day politicians would end up on the fork (except if they surrender to the new system).
>>406234 it depends usually the cost of engaging in politics prevents workers, but you do have some politicians that are working class
>>406194 >>406234 Friends, a better thread to ask questions like this is here >>331128

Getting out of the reactionary swamp. Anonymous 04/01/2020 (Wed) 06:05:34 No. 410524 [Reply] [Last]
I noticed that there are quite a few people who are former reactionaries on this board. Not that I have anything against them, quite the opposite. I'm just curious how you got into reactionary ideology and then got out. I only dabbled with Sargon of Akkad and Milo when I was in high school and early in uni. I got out after they went harder into capitalism and nationalism (I was always somewhat socialist-leaning but had read no theory). I'm asking because I want to know how to do propaganda for reactionaries or those adjacent to them, and prevent them from going deeper into the "rabbit hole". I have trouble understanding how people get into it because on the outside their ideas are so disgusting and violates the empathy humans have for each other, but it seems that people still fall for it.

>>410591 Excuse be sir but have you heard the good word of Papa Stalin who defeated Hitler and sacrificed everything even his beloved son during the great patriotic war all for the sake of the glorious Soviet Union and the Immortal Science of Marxist-Leninism?
>>410597 I have. In fact my great grandfathers fought in the Red Army during WWII.
I was in socialist online groups as a teenager but I got really disillusioned by it because of how much they focused on political correctness like banning anyone who used "ableist" or any other "problematic" terms and it really stressed me out interacting with them because I always had to watch what I joke about and knew I would be kicked out for voicing any different opinion on any social issue. So I stopped going on there and started going on /pol/ just as a way to spite them in my mind but over time I started actually getting into and believing a lot of the natsoc stuff, probably because my life wasn't that great at the time and I needed to blame someone. That lasted a few years and I finally got out simply because I eventually just got so burned out on hating everyone and everything it was awful for my mental health. So I don't remember how but about two years ago I found out about Zizek and /leftypol/ and realized that there are still western marxists that aren't sjw's and I ended up politically back where I started
>>410619 >I eventually just got so burned out on hating everyone and everything it was awful for my mental health. Damn anon. That's terrible. Welcome back though.

>>409597 If China is lying, why are they relaxing the restrictions and reopening Wuhan? Xi Jinping himself could run around there shaking everyones hands and they would still be accused of lying.
>>409597 Not really. Simply because SK's first reports of the virus were in mid Feb about 3 months after the first reports in China and because SK took aggressive action. China din't take nearly any action until the start of the Chinese newyear, so they should have seen a massive spike two weeks afterwards due to the population migrating but din't. This is pretty contradictory to all other countries, especially for a population dense country with little warning of a virus.

Decided to make this to spread awareness in leftypol. Thoughts on the idea of the next topic possibly being /edu/? Some statements from mods: >Mod Vote: After its time on /roulette/ is up, turn /his/ into a broad /edu/ board, also including content that would traditionally go on a /lit/ or /sci/ board. Vote ends 1.4.20 16:00 UTC. What's your thought on this? >So, here's the deal, guys. Space is the only one who can push front end changes, as many of you are aware I am sure. Currently he is down a computer && because of the recent covid-19 outbreaks across the globe, as you can expect, it's not like he can just mosey on down to the library and do what needs to be done.We are having conversations about creating /edu/ right now and will be changing boards as soon as space is available to push the changes through. Sorry for the inconvenience. I hope everyone is doing well out there! - Coma

>>410568 I'm a lot of things but a liar isn't one of them. Stars aligned right and space was available to push the board and we are not yet decided on with to do with /edu/. Again, this is why people who aren't, at least on the riot, shouldn't talk about things they really have no understanding of. Space and rat pushed the fash board. Leave your seething hated at the door.
>>410568 Well two theories - 1: Space always had a computer and they were fucking with us from that front 2: Space didn't have a computer but they were lying and they could make /edu/
>>410590 I could, literally, create the board right now, if I wanted to. I just can't step over every one else. So, the other admins decided to play an april fools joke. Get over yourselves.

>>410518 Greed is greed I supposed, I personally have no issue with secularism so long as you (the individual) are practicing a meaningful spiritualism that doesn't seek to control and domination. Which is a personal gripe of mine on Christianity by and large
>>410522 >practicing a meaningful spiritualism that doesn't seek to control and domination. Which is a personal gripe of mine on Christianity by and large The Church HQ (the institution, the clergy) seeks power and control. Galileo for instance didnt mean to tarnish Jesus Christ, his teachings and divinity. The man merely pointed his telescope at the sky and reported on the phenomena. The institution seems to have served as MSM outlets and forums of the times like Chomsky and Parenti talk about manufacturing consent/manufacturing reality. The most people then didnt usually know to read and write, they could listen and talk, they relied on the institutions and authority figures to do the reading and writing for them. Of course those spheres in the sky (the planets and satellites thereof) would have interested people greatly. I suppose the people knew somewhat that they were other worlds, with other ways and that would have concerned the Church HQ donors and not the New Testament.
