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? Non-leftists can come here to ask questions. Board moderation here is more focused on maintaining a good board index, so non-leftists have to be on better behavior as OP than they do as participants in someone else's thread. If you aren't b8ing or shitposting, your thread is likely to stay up. >Are you liberals? Are you SJWs? Do you like Clinton? Are you all Zionists??? No liberals here. We hate the Democrat party. As for Israel, leftism is anti-Zionist. It is not anti-Jew. Unlike /pol/, /leftypol/ fully supports Palestinians, and doesn't think they're "mudslimes". Pretending to be an SJW or Zionist will very likely get you banned. >Why did you leave /pol/ and why does this board exist? /leftypol/ existed to help the 8chan community focus on leftist topics without being slid or flooded to death, and now has moved to Bunkerchan as constant alt-right chud murderers and Qanon boomers killed 8chan. >Do you support gun control? While posters on /leftypol/ have varying stances on gun control (training requirements, mental health checks, etc.), they are overwhelmingly in favor of arming the proletariat. >Do you support "national" socialism? No.

Any good books on Russia's politics and history from the end of the USSR until recent times?

Are mods reddit tards? Embarrassing display
>China: dictate who can run businesses and who can't, you're still a commie even if you do it really well and efficiently. >Nazi Germany: They privatized industries in name only. The state controlled all production and the means at which is was distributed and at what prices it would be distributed at. They were fundamentally against capitalism. Still commies. Is this true?
>>193368 It has been like this ever since bunkerchan was taken down by a spammer
What are some books that can let me understand why the world right now is the way it is? Stuff like: how the Middle East turned the way it did, the escalations towards Brexit and the economic messes in the EU (i.e. Greece)... I'm a zoomer (but 18) so I never really got to digest or understand stuff that happened before Gaddafi's death, so I lack a bit of context.
>>197331 I just deepdive wikipedia. If you go to the citations sometimes it links to book pdfs :)
>>197331 I'm reading "Buying Time" (The crisis of democratic capitalism) by Wolfgang Streeck right now, it's a fairly easy read that covers the rise of neoliberalism in the "Western World", and the conflict between citizens and lenders of a state, and how this is an extension of the contradiction between wage-earners and capitalists. This book is not strictly "Marxist" but it's a good informative read. Nice analysis of the crises of modern capitalism. Also "Neoliberalism" by David Harvey was a good read on the subject, with a bonus chapter on China.
>>197331 >anything with praise from Foreign Affairs Can't blame you for not being unaware since you are a zoomer but FA is run by these glow boys https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_on_Foreign_Relations >The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), founded in 1921, is a United States nonprofit think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. It is headquartered in New York City, with an additional office in Washington, D.C. Its membership, which numbers 4,900, has included senior politicians, more than a dozen secretaries of state, CIA directors, bankers, lawyers, professors and senior media figures. As for actual book suggestions, read A Line in the Sand by James Barr. It's not especially woke or anything but it's a good history of Iraq and the Levant since 1914.
Can someone explain why Foucault supported the Iranian revolution?

>>208793 yeah its in the cyber thread >>209076 >>206524
Would anyone be so kind as to pdf or copy paste these articles? Jacobin is paywalled and I ain't paying for that shit. I checked on archive.org which sometimes skips the paywall, but no luck. https://jacobinmag.com/2019/08/all-dads-armies https://jacobinmag.com/2019/11/night-american-village-review-okinawa-base https://jacobinmag.com/2019/12/iraq-war-afghanistan-terror-end-decade-bush-bin-laden
>>210046 >Jacobin is paywalled is this recent or did i just forget? my god, fuck jacobin
Do you buy Marxist books or just read them online?

>>210046 (me) fuck these guys so much. We need a leftypol-fund to pay for this, also to promote good leftist content creators.
>>212133 Usually buy them, prefer to get old used ones online for cheap.
>>212133 I plan on buying physical books later but for now I just read online.
>>212133 Secondhand book shop and buy them, I usually end up getting cool historical or more obscure political books at the same time that the shop owner will recommend or I find on the shelf beside what I actually came in for
>>212147 Where do you get them?
>>212133 Download pdfs

Does Kissinger provide any insightful geopolitical/IR-related knowledge or are his books full of spooks and neocon propaganda?
>>214786 Kissinger is a based pragmatist who just so happenes to be on American side, so I would guess so. I personally believe that any upcoming socialist power needs to look at him for inspiration on how to conduct foreign policy. Also he definitely wasn't a neocon. In fact neocons ruined a lot of his carefully set up plans (like his sponsorships for dictators) because they thought that was un-American and anti-liberty. Can't say much about him in the current day though, his mind may have been rotten by being so close to neocon power for many years.
>>216119 This. IR Realism is probably generally the most applicable paradigm of geopolitics IMO. You should also check out Mearsheimer.
>>216755 >>216119 Is his book On China worth a read?
>>214786 Is there any back to the claim thatHenry Kissinger lolled hard at the premiere of Chinatown and that it's his favourite movie?
>>10603 >/his/ So nothing with a marxist analysis?

Anti-gun glow posts should banned, and treated the same as nazbol shit, cuck posting and "kill whitey".
I just found this old as fuck Audiobook website where they made tapes for blind people. Turns out they have Lots more leftist audiobooks than librivox and audible. Can anyone access these?

>>221527 So Castro is now a Glownig... good to know.
>>223258 Fidel Castro was anti-gun? How do you think he got to power?
>>223265 >How do you think he got to power? his beard-powers <In 1960, the CIA planned to sabotage Castro's speeches by spraying his broadcasting studio with a chemical that would make him suffer similar hallucinations to LSD.Other plots included spiking the dictator's cigars with a chemical that would disorientate him, hoping he would smoke one before delivering one of his marathon oratory performances.They also tried dusting his shoes with thallium salts — which would have made Castro's iconic beard fall out.Like the hundreds of other plots against Castro, all failed.The LSD-like substance was abandoned because it was too unstable, the cigars were never smoked, and Castro canceled the overseas trip that would have given spooks the opportunity to dust his shoes.
