New Multitude- leftypol related magazine Anonymous 08/22/2020 (Sat) 13:15:40 No. 793845 [Reply] [Last]
I want to ask this communities advice on how to proceed. Firstly, I still think there's a great wealth here. leftypol's strength is a great community from around the world and people who I believe have something unique to offer as far as leftist analysis goes. Leftypol's weakness is that this strength is fleeting, hence the Nm project. 1.While medium is ok I think it's time to move the magazine to its own website which will make it a hell of a lot more professional looking and attract more readers. 2. I have no tech skills. I need someone to help me build the website, linking the domain name etc. I have asked on /tech/ but I got mostly responses of "learn it yourself it's easy" sorry but I don't have the time to do that, which is why I hosted on medium in the first place. Is there anyone out there who could assist with this 3. getting higher quality posts. I think the idea of grabbing effort posts from leftypol is still valid, but it takes a lot of work to edit these into a quality I am happy with. Many of the current articles are curated debates, etc. I think they are good, but I also think it would be great to have some original essays too. We have some from Brazil anon and Singapore anon. I would love to work more with people here who have something unique to say. So I would like to offer something like $100 for an original essays/articles and various amounts for artwork too. I could fund this for while but.. 4.this would also mean that long term the project would need a patreon or something.I would actually like to do it so the artists and contributors got a fair share of any patreon money, so they could continue earning. Anyway this discussion is moot without first getting a reputation for quality and unique posts. 5. the name. So many people thought that many "New Multitude" was some kind of Hardt and Negri offshoot..I guess that's understandable, but it's not. What do you think about the name..I was also toying with the name "Swinis Multiude" which is the name the arch-conservative Edmund Burke gave to the common folk of England as an insult and which they reclaimed in jest. So yeah...Let me know what I should do. originally I set up a email for work, but quickly realised this wasn't a good plan. the best way to contact me is through twitter messaging twitter.com/newmultitude

Jacobin - Incel reactionaries are created by economic downfall Anonymous 09/20/2020 (Sun) 18:33:45 No. 885583 [Reply] [Last]
bumplocked: safe to say this thread has reached it's conclusion >Even a glance at the "incel" subculture reveals vile misogyny, reactionary politics of all kinds, and multiple acts of horrific violence. The documentary TFW No GF also emphasizes that in part, that subculture is a product of the breakdown of institutions, the disappearance of decent economic opportunities, and a broader loss of meaning in America. >In all this, the 2008 financial crisis and the failing neoliberal order are essential hallmarks for Moyer. Amid the crosshatch of issues at play for the film’s subjects — childhood traumas, ailing mental health, awkward and often fragile masculinity — TFW NO GF makes it impossible to ignore the broader dynamics caused by economic crisis. >“The future that was sold to me is a complete lie, so I’m just going to do nothing instead,” explains Kyle, one of the film’s subjects. >TFW NO GF is a portrait of young men who are facing a future with no long-term economic opportunity and little in the way of meaningful democratic engagement or collective civic life. In particular, Moyer’s exploration of the American landscape draws our attention to the effects of the 2007–8 housing-market collapse and the subsequent austerity politics that so devastated public-sector institutions like education. As Kantbot puts it: >People used to graduate and go get a job, and that used to work pretty well for them. But now that’s impossible, you have no experience in anything, you’re from a small-town background and you don’t have any connections, so you end up living back at home, and your parents are telling you to apply to McDonald’s or something because it’s better than you staying at home. https://jacobinmag.com/2020/09/tfw-no-gf-incel-moyer-documentary

>>886157 Have you ever considered that women view incels in the same light? That the pickiness that you show against ugly women is just a small component of the sexual-darwinism that also excludes you and other young men that are lower-ranking in attractiveness? For what it's worth, I bet the same fat/ugly chicks you write about feel the same way about incels and other lower-tier guys, lamenting that they can't get attractive guys as they consider these men beneath them. What you have to consider is that the problem doesn't lie on one particular gender, but rather on the broader cultural obsession with landing attractive mates. Honestly anon, if you're an unemployed, overweight virgin who spends their free time on forums (maybe you aren't, but I'm certain this applies to at least some of the /r9k/-esque posters here), I don't think you're really in a position to be picky. I get that our culture has set up the mythology of "work hard and you'll get an attractive wife someday", but the destruction of these sexual archetypes should be the goal, not abiding by them and hoping that an attractive gf will just land in your lap. Just accept that, until you really take the time to improve your appearance and your social standing, you are pretty much the male equivalent of the ugly girl. Recognizing this will help demolish the broader bourgeois mythology of sexuality, and will ultimately set you free to pursue life without /r9k/ looming over your head.

Love is the most powerful ideology Anonymous 09/20/2020 (Sun) 02:27:00 No. 884135 [Reply] [Last]
I finally found the answer: Love is the most powerful ideology. Let me explain: What is the most important thing in the lives of people? It's the well being of their loved ones, their friends, family, spouse etc. You personally might adhere to a specific (political) ideology, but would you really sacrifice the security of your loved ones for it? Would you be able to kill the people who you deeply love, for your political convictions? As long you are not a remorseless psychopath (in this case, you wouldn't even be able to feel love anyway), you will always drop your political convictions, to save your loved ones. This is why love trumps every other ideology.

ITT: most retarded anticommunist "arguments" Anonymous 01/02/2020 (Thu) 12:04:34 No. 194067 [Reply] [Last]
For me as someone who lives in a post-Soviet country the most brainlet and anti-reality argument has got to be "COMMUNISM IS ANTI-CULTURE" My family still has shelves with 100s of books they got in the USSR, real books like obscure classical works or science ones. You CAN'T find most of them in stores anymore because they have been replaced with lowest common denominator schlock like 50 shades of grey or cheap fantasy novels. You have to go to a specialized library to find books you could buy at any bookstore in the USSR. Little surprise that the USSR used to be "the most reading country". Socialism built and supported theaters, museums, cinemas etc and most importantly it made them available to the entire population instead of a small leisurely elite. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to call the USSR the most cultured country in history if the criteria is the total number of people with access to "high culture" like classical music and theater. Don't even get me started on Soviet contributions to the art world like Prokofiev, Tarkovsky etc. Classical arts were preserved and promoted, folk culture was supported too. The only culture socialism "destroyed" was religion and culture of the ruling classes like decadent balls. That's what reactionaries truly bemoan. It doesn't matter that 99% of the population went from ignorant peasants to educated people who can appreciate intellectual and aesthetic pursuits, a few nobles couldn't have their shitty dances and lavish palaces all to themselves anymore, so CULTURE WAS LITERALLY DESTROYED!!11 You'd have to be completely ignorant of history and reality to say "socialism is anti-culture", or be a lying reactionary who by "culture" means "when you praise Jesus and kill nigs". It's especially annoying to hear this from Russian right-wing zoomers who know nothing but fortnite and low-brow americanized tv entertainment, and somehow blame socialism for this state of affairs instead of capitalist restoration.

>Muh Minimum Wage is bad!!!! 7.25 x 40 = $290 a week. A fucking WEEK. BEFORE TAX. The minimum wage MUST be raised. When it was established, it was in line to be keyed to Inflation rates and the national average cost of living. Minimum wage is NOT set according to skill level. This is the "My Pie Fallacy" where people think they deserve to earn a much higher gap from "burger flippers" and idiots who disagree with raising the wage need to stop it RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Other people getting more money doesn't mean you get less, you fucking MORONS. The minimum wage is supposed to be over $27 right now. That is how much Inflation has gone up since the wage was first set in 1938. In fact, thanks to corporate pandering in Congress, the minimum wage peaked in "value" in 1968, and this was back when the majority of those making minimum wage were teenagers who had families to supplement their major expenses, not people who have families of their own TO support. Many states have recognized this and have implemented their own increased wages. We are in a VERY precarious place right now with the minimum wage being as dangerously low as it is. We are about to see crime rates increase as more and more people keep being unable to live on their wages alone, as just LAST YEAR the supplementary rates of welfare and EBT systems reached the point where the wage problem surpassed it. We are being herded to financial ruin by billionaires who intend to crash the market so they can buy companies and stock at a record minimum costs only to turn it around again afterwards and reap the high values. We have seen this before. We MUST eliminate this enemy. If not the rich themselves, then the traitor Republicans they own and keep on leashes must be excised from power and replaced with a competent third party. Because presently they are not an American political group. They are ENEMIES. >Inb4 muh raised prices Price Ceiling regulations.

Who poisoned this guy? The West especially Germany tries to pin this on Putin to cancel Nord Stream II to buy fracking gas from the burgers again. German military allegedly proved that he was poisoned with Novichok. It makes no sense to me that Putin would do this now an bury Nord Stream, and the Western media runs headlines that he was the most popular opposition politician in Russia which is hard to believe.

Apparently he had alcohol parties with his friends for days before he was reported as being "poisoned" by Novichok. Once you realize that there's no way you can survive from a fucking military-grade chemical weapon, it all becomes obvious.
>>847389 >Western media runs headlines that he was the most popular opposition politician in Russia he's in the KPRF?
It's pretty obvious that this was US groups that wanted to sabotage the relationships between USA and Germany for a long time now, especially over gas supply https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUcku5SEB2k US diplomat over a year ago threatening sanctions against german companies over the pipeline.

>>880785 THREADLY REMINDER: Athenian Democracy is based. The Athenians already thought of this before you. In order to destroy the power of the oligarchs and aristocrats over the judiciary, Athenian democrats increased the jury for the Athenian court to 500 citizens. This made it impossible for the richfags to bribe the jury because there were too many citizens to bribe. Moreoever, Democrats eventually passed legislation to issue wages to jurors, so that the poor could earn a respectable wage serving on the court. It also served as an old age pension for retired citizens, who would draw a wage on a daily basis by sitting as jurors. All kinds of cases came before the court as there was no distinction at the time between criminal, civil, and other types of cases. Anyone could bring a case before the court. Therefore, it became an instrument of rule by which to attack the oligarchs and empower the demos, as the latter made up the majority of jurors and always voted in the interest of the democracy over the rich oligarchs
