Just got a job where I write patents for big companies, my boss is so bourgeois he owns dozens of fancy cars and flaunts them at work, and the very nature of the job means there are probably no lefties. At least I can pay my bills and afford nice things now though...

>>676375 You should use this chance, to gather information, so you can later publish a book, as a insider from a big patent company. You should see it as an opportunity, to expose the patent-industry.
>>676391 expose it for what?
>>676375 Hang in there buddy. I have a very business oriented job and nearly everyone is a lolbert or neo-con. The sheer amount of dumb shit the say. Don't sweat it though, it's like the say the best capitalist are marxist.

>>676267 How do you get hold of them? Do you have friends in Russia who hunt them down or something?
>>676271 99% of the time I find them on Amazon, Abebooks, or Bolerium. The other 1% I happen to contact someone who has copies they're willing to send over.

Translators Wanted! Traducteurs recherchés! Übersetzer gesucht! Anonymous 04/18/2020 (Sat) 10:17:17 No. 446322 [Reply] [Last]
If you know French or German, please contribute a chapter to /leftypol/'s first crowdsourced translation project! This project started on >>>/edu/840. The book is Karl Kautsky's history of the French Revolution, originally published as Die Klassengegensätze im Zeitalter der Französischen Revolution in 1889. Coming from the "Pope of Marxism", as Kautsky was then known, this text likely had an immense influence on Lenin and other revolutionaries of his day. It was approved by Engels himself, and may have been foundational in establishing the Marxist theory of bourgeois revolution, yet it has never been translated into English. The original German is available here: https://www.marxists.org/deutsch/archiv/kautsky/1908/frev/index.html and an old French translation is available here: https://www.marxists.org/francais/kautsky/works/1889/00/antagonismes-table.htm What makes this work especially good for us to translate is that it's relatively short - just around 60 pages in total, divided into 10 chapters. With each chapter being 5-7 pages each, it is conceivable to translate a chapter in one day's volunteer work. Comrade Akko has already translated the preface, and is working on chapter 1. That leaves 9 chapters to complete: Preface: Complete! Chapter 1: Second draft complete (French) Chapter 2: Draft complete (French) - Proofreading complete (English) Chapter 3: WIP (French) Chapter 4: Draft complete (French) - Proofreading complete (English) Chapter 5: Draft complete (French) - Proofreading complete (English) Chapter 6: Draft complete (French) - Proofreading complete (English) Chapter 7: Draft complete (French) - Proofreading complete (English) Chapter 8: Complete!

Anyone know hungarian? It'd be nice to see rakosi matyas's writings translated.
>>665454 The fuck does that have to do with language?
This thread is going to die/sink constantly unless it moves to a slower board like /hobby/ and if it doesn't then we'll lose plenty of useful translation.
>>676299 >>>/edu/ feels more appropiate, imo
I'll grab a German chapter, will post again to claim one when I know I have time.

Moderation feedback is moving to /gulag/! Anonymous Board volunteer 07/04/2020 (Sat) 13:38:13 No. 665985 [Reply] [Last]
Hello everyone, we have decided that in order to reduce the number of stickies, moderation feedback will be moving to /gulag/. This also means you can make new topics about your specific issues, which will hopefully make it easier to keep track of things. The old moderation topics will remain up for a few days to make everyone aware, and while we consolidate the most important points of the rules into the reading list topic. Thanks for your attention.

Failed Capitalist States Anonymous 07/08/2020 (Wed) 16:39:07 No. 675048 [Reply] [Last]
One of the easiest pits to fall into when a young person tries learning about socialism is "le doesn't work" "proved" with examples of socialist states ultimately failing. We could spend a while talking about why (western sabotage, revisionism, third-world conditions), but something I feel always gets left out is the failure of capitalist states to achieve prosperity (particularly in South America). So let's talk a bit about Capitalist states that failed and why

>>676268 No it's not.
Fucking Haiti mate, search "Madame Boukman" on Twitter and see for youself what a true capitalist state entails
Just point out how capitalism enters an economic crisis every 10 years, how most young people in the west will have a worse life than their fathers and capitalism's inability to combat climate change. Alternatively point them to somewhere like Somalia. Criticising capitalism is way easier than defending previous socialist states, it requires almost no prior historical knwoledge because people are already aware of it's shortcomings, they are suffering them.
>>675132 because from their point of view, capitalism has no promises, and is simply the natural order of the universe, while communism promises everything but does not deliver
>>676283 *previous socialist experiments

Evidence Of Glow Posting Anonymous 07/06/2020 (Mon) 16:07:26 No. 670633 [Reply] [Last]
I'm gonna post this all across Reddit, 4chan etc because it relates to these communities. This is what I have spent the last month of lockdown doing. I have titled this article, 'The Truth About The Alt Right: A Destruction By Facts and Logic.' Part of the reason I write this article is that I sincerely hope those on the Alt-Right consider its implications and question their beliefs. The other part is that I sincerely hope the left begins to more fully understand the scope of the alt-right itself, but also of the intelligence agencies who, I believe I have shown in this article, are the creators and backers of the alt-right movement. I hope that perhaps they might consider what they could do to combat these influences specifically online. While the alt-right have money, we have a lot of people. In the article I first outline who the alt right are and what they believe, as well as outlining a fairly orthodox theory of where fascism comes from. I then discuss The Roots of the Alt Right and the connections to intelligence agencies therein, their relationship to the conspiracy theory community and other alternative media. I also give a brief history of 4chan. I then discuss the Alt-Right itself, the alt-right specific theories such as Pizzagate and Qanon, as well as the alt-rights involvement the election of Donald Trump. From here, I go on to discuss the various different groups and interests who put large amounts of money behind the election of Donald Trump. This money paid for the astroturfing of various forums on the internet, including Reddit and 4chan, by these paid meme magic factories. Those who paid for these factories are some interesting characters, including one Jim Dowson, part of a shadowy group called The Knights Templar International, ruled by a mysterious 'Council of Nine'. Yes, you heard me correctly. Outside of these interests, I also show the massive and blatant amount of intelligence agency interference in these communities. I then go on discuss the esoteric leanings of many of these Neo Nazi groups implicated in this astroturfing campaign, as well as their own connections to intelligence groups, which are often direct and stark. I discuss generally how these various influences have formed a militant anti left bloc, with global reach and influence as well as considerable militant capabilities. This network forms a Fascist International and has links right to the top of many states. 4Chan and Reddit have been a key media outlet in their growth. I am aware the article is very long, so if you have a pretty good grasp 4chan/Reddit history, you can skip ahead to the section, Entitled 'The God Emporer Saves Us From His Pedophile Friends' , or, if you want to get straight to the sections most relevant to 4chan and Reddit, you can skip to the section entitled 'Evidence of Glow Posting'. It is from this section of the article that the whole thing grew. I wanted to collect the little evidence I had of glow posting into one document, that lead here and there and now I have over 20,000 words. You will find that at the start of the article in the introduction there are few citations, don't assume that is because I don't use them, I reference 143 sources in total. This is a link to the article. Hope you find it interesting. https://medium.com/@MKultrawoke/the-truth-about-the-alt-right-a-destruction-by-facts-and-logic-e3d07f27e8cb

But calling people that are just...strange...glowies is kinda fun. There's this dweeb shitposting on /pol/ with his Patriot Front USA or whatever it's called. One pic literally was called "something-something-glowing.jpg". Much hilarity ensued.

But calling people that are just...strange...for glowies is kinda fun. For instance, that dweeb who is spamming his Patriot Front USA on /pol/ or whatever it's called. One pic was literally called "something-glowing.jpg". Much hilarity ensued. What's much more worrying is nazi shilling with the more passive voice. For instance, today there was this thread about Epstein and Maxwell and those huge pizza gate tunnels or what fucking ever. So some art about pedophilia was mentioned and posted. If anything it's anti-pedophilia and definitely not porn. So when I said it's no biggie, the reply was that I'm *promoting* pedophilia. Despite being on an anonymous imageboard, it's dangerous in a way because it's *teaching* how to regard anything even mentioning pedophilia. Totally Führerprinzip, if you ask me.
https://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/267034063 there is another thread on /pol/ about this

group culture, formed by historical coincidence. i'd be 100% down with having some cohesion, loyalty and discipline, fuck, if only! i would not care one bit if it wasn't my favoured tendency that dominated and had the most say in forming our strategy. the worst thing about the left is it's pathetic weakness and impotence and overcoming that is worth almost anything at this point. we're running out of time. rightwingers are used to sweeping shit under the rug, their families and churches are completely dependent on their deep commitment to that principle. plus they don't believe the world can get better (because we think that), and they are primarily motivated by spite, toward us. they are easy to direct. we on the other hand are still trying to recover from the traumatic collective loss of sanity after we were crushed starting in the 70s. since then we've resigned to having no power to change anything and increasinly freaking out about rearranging deck chairs and retreating further and further into the world of ideology entirely separated from reality. this is as much a problem for academic sjw types, tankies and anarchists, as is the constant cancellation of other tendencies, but no one seems to notice when they themselves do it. they just criticise others for it.

this threat makes me both sad and happy i'm sad because if only the soviets didn't fall,if only they didnt have the cold war forcing them into spending billions into useless weaponry we would be living in orbit around earth,or even moon now
>>666909 (me) like soviet thinkers scientists etc imagined so much they dreamt of a world where socialism was achieved globally a world where poverty and shit was of no concern and humanity was finally getting its shit together and conquering space instead we have borderline fascist worldwide capitalism
>>666914 i actually had tears in my eyes reading this it's about school kids imagining the future of the soviet union and in 2017 they unearthed these time capsules meant for the centennial of the soviet union https://www.rbth.com/history/326647-5-messages-from-soviet-time-capsules feels bad man
>>666933 this really brings a tear to eyes but also reminds us (or atleast me) of importance of work we are doing we are struggling,fighting,organizing,reading,writing studying,striking so that all this becomes a reality. keep up the good work comrades.

Hong Kong: hundreds arrested as security law comes into effect Teenager waving independence flag among those held as thousands take to the streets >More than 370 protesters in Hong Kong have been arrested as police fired teargas, pepper spray and water cannon at thousands of people protesting against a national security law imposed by Beijing. >The extent of Beijing’s mandate was made clear as full details of the law were released late on Tuesday, giving authorities sweeping powers to crack down on dissent and allowing China new levels of control over the semi-autonomous territory. >On Wednesday, the 23rd anniversary of the handover from Britain to China and the first day under the new law, Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, and government dignitaries from the city and Beijing drank champagne in celebration. Lam called th law “the most important development in relations” between Hong Kong and China since the 1997 handover. >By the afternoon, thousands of people had taken to the streets of Causeway Bay and Wanchai in defiance of protest bans. Police were seen pinning protesters to the ground, shooting pepper balls at people who heckled them, and targeting journalists with water cannon and rounds of pepper spray. >Police said 10 of the arrests were for offences related to the new security law, including holding signs or flags advocating for Hong Kong independence. Of those arrested, one was a 15-year-old girl who was waving a Hong Kong independence flag. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/01/hong-kong-protesters-arrested-as-security-law-comes-into-effect
