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

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

There's one in Bolivia, a similar sounding one in Mexico, and there are bodies being abandoned on the streets in Ecuador since authorities aren't picking them up.

Not a troll post, please don't lock. Is graph related true? Are 1/5 people under 35 really LGBT?
Only true in societies ruined by capitalist realism.
I don't think anyone on this board can give you solid data on the question, so I'll just use this opportunity to remind that these numbers are always gonna be affected by whether the person being asked is comfortable with their sexuality, and it's a lot easier to be a gay zoomer than a gay boomer.

How is Italian civil society coping with this so far? Are there any political consequences brewing? Any angry people? What is the mood of the public? Over here in the U.S., fear and panic are slowly setting in. Lots of rumors about martial law and full lockdowns, supposed sightings of military convoys, strategically important businesses are handing out letters of passage to their employees in anticipation, the Dept. of Justice is making quiet moves to try to suspend habeas corpus, mass layoffs (Goldman Sachs predicted 2.2 million unemployment claims this week alone). Ammunition is sold out almost everywhere or subject to severe price-gouging. My local gun store had a line through the door. You can feel it in the air.

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.

>>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.
>>410583 Stalin took a backward semi feudal agarian shithole and turned it into a modern world power with growth rates that surpassed the west. Hitler created an economy held up by MEFO bill ponzi schemes which could only be sustained by conquest and looting other nations.
>>410634 >Hitler created an economy held up by MEFO bill ponzi schemes which could only be sustained by conquest and looting other nations. Could you redpill me on this?

>>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.
