Why do some of you gotta sound like this Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 16:29:47 No. 882714 [Reply] [Last]
Yada yada twitter post containment thread fuck you I'm just wondering why so many leftists insist on talking like this. Not because they're necessarily wrong but they do understand that to the average person this sounds like insanity right? The average joe doesn't associate human rights with a specific post-war event they associate it with the idea that they can't get prosecuted for believing in god or being gay. I can't tell if this is glowop crap or just the left being dogshit at selling their ideas.

On average you read a book every month, right? R-right, anon?
31 posts and 5 images omitted.
4 books per month when I have free time 2 books when I have a heavy schedule I regret not reading physical books instead of PDFs tho. I could have le based library to show off my power level by now.
How can people here read on computer? I find it really hard, and I usually don't remember a lot of the information compared to reading physical.
Read? Why should I do that when I can rely on youtubers? Come on guys, get with the times.
>>882664 I've tried reading PDFs but like you say my retention is so much worse it's a waste of time. It's also a real struggle to even gather enough attention span to read more than a few pages. With a physical book I can just isolate myself from the rest of the world and give all my attention to the book. It helps that the pages are physical, you gain a physical intimacy and familiarity with each page as you spend some time with them, and as you return back to the pages you've already read, each one being like a separate physical object. You also get a much better sense of the whole book, of where every page fits and of how distant they are from each other. Whereas on a screen you only get to see one page at the time in a sort of tunnel vision. So I prefer to buy cheap second-hand books, it also makes me think twice what is worth reading, so I read mostly primary sources. I'll still read chunks of secondary sources on my computer if I'm having hard time understanding something, so PDFs are still immensely useful. It's also nice to check if the book is enjoyable to read before buying a physical copy.
That´s what I aspire to

Bring me sources or anything regarding workers cooperatives, collective owned business, etc. And tell me why those things differ than current system. Also you can't literally dump hierarchy isn't it?

>>858528 >And tell me why those things differ than current system. Nothing will change because muh commodity production. Only exploitation of workers will stop as bourgeoisie class disappears but who cares about workers or class struggle we just need free stuff. The more free stuff the state gives you the more socialister the state is.

corporate neolib or based leftist? Anonymous 09/18/2020 (Fri) 03:53:33 No. 877742 [Reply] [Last]
He seems to straddle the line between both, but he does support positions that no neolib would, like medicare for all. I wouldn't call him a comrade but he's definitely useful for our movement.

Based. Revisionists on suicide watch
if “revisionism” is even something that is capable of happening, isn’t that a sign that something is fundamentally flawed? If your system can be dismantled at the whim of a handful of individuals at the head, doesn’t that just prove anarchists to be correct about the state?
>>882404 Are you revising, bro? Kinda dangerous around these parts, bro.

>>873370 >>873472 >>880045 >>882276 The Confederacy wasn't against American imperialism at all, you glowy dipshits. In fact, they regarded themselves as the "True America" and had plans to basically annex Mexico, Central America, parts of northern South America and the Caribbean islands as literally a massive slave empire. Look up the "Knights of the Golden Circle" and what their plans for the Confederacy were.
>>873124 Western Europe is exploiting Eastern Europe.
>>882518 That's a blatant lie. I'm a western europe myself and I haven't exploited an eastern europe in like days.
>>882395 Yes. Before the war they had been trying to drum up support for an invasion of Cuba so that they could expand slavery there to keep the system viable. They only really started talking about secession after the newly acquired (stolen from Mexico) California told them to fuck off with their slavery. The South was old school Roman Empire imperialist.
>>873124 It just so happens that Eastern Europe was devastated by WW1, WW2 and civil wars. Scandinavia and the British Isles had been virtually insulated, West Germany where the industrial base was since at least Hitler being Chancellor, Spain was devastated by the Civil War, Southern Italy was devastated in WW2 with the Northern industrial base spared. France and Netherlands surrendered to Germany rather soon, salvaging devastation.

>DSA ares feds >SRA are feds >CPUSA are feds >Redneck Revolt are feds I get that it is very likely there are indeed feds(I think some of the ones I mentioned are actually especially bad) in these orgs but I mean if we dissolved every org if a fed got in them we would never have orgs at all, I do unironically think part of the reason is people not wanting to join orgs so they convince themselves all of them are filled with feds and sectarianism where every org that isn't 100 align with them but be some nefarious evil controlled oppostion as that's easier to believe than leftists being dumb I guess what I want to know is if fed infiltration is inevitable why be so hostile to forming/joining orgs?

imagine being a fed and having to regularly attend DSA meetings
feds dont even exist
Simply inform feds that they need to announce their intelligence agency privilege before speaking at DSA meetings.
