It's that time again. Send an e-mail with your motivation, how often you'd be able to moderate, your timezone, your moderation style and whatever you think will help your chances. There'll only be some slight timezone-based discrimination if there aren't enough good applications, but don't let that discourage you from applying if you're american. The more the merrier.

Applications will be open for a week or two, depending on my schedule and how quickly I can get good applications.

Send your application email to e-nkvd@protonmail.com and make sure to include a keyword or phrase which you also post in this thread so that your post history can be vetted. Don't pick something too generic someone else might pick, I don't want to see three people pick "stalin did nothing wrong" as their key phrase.

>How can you call yourselves leftist politically incorrect?

/leftypol/ posters are allowed to voice opinions that offend liberals, SJWs, and so on. 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.

This is a voluntary thread that users can choose to post in, if… I forgot the rest of whatever the old OP was. Honestly, I just wanted to bring this old thread back.

>that's just so annoying, why can't they just keep the old shit updated so it stays fun and useful for longer than 5 years

It's the uTorrent cycle. New software projects that gain prominence invariably devolve into the crufty, poorly maintained and feature-creeping trash they were intended to replace.

Discord is shit, but less so than most of the competition, and most people don't IRC because of how archaic it feels to people used to shiny modern programs.

>At least you have someone you can do it with

Well, no, I don't, that's the problem.

And I don't know, I don't think I could adjust to a fleshlight, the feed back ain't the same. Also, yeah, the cuddling.

>I really sound like peak alienation don't I?

Pretty much, but don't fret on it. The most difficult thing for people to understand is that women want to fuck as much as man do, but there's a whole convoluted system that makes sure they don't say a word about it.

I'm a fatso and I get pussy just by having the balls to go and actually talk to them, and nothing too clever either, just the "hey, you single?"


Messenger was the best. Just the messages, no bullshit.



fleshlights can give you better stimulation than a real vagina, though.

Since they're just latex, and it can be shaped any which way.



>most people don't IRC because of how archaic it feels to people used to shiny modern programs.

I really dont understand the aversion to IRC at all. I dont even use it that much but theres nothing fucking wrong with it at all. I used it now and then when I was a 11 year old and it was fine then, on rare occasion when I was a teenager before I knew anything about computers and shit and it was fine then, and when I need to go on freenode for some tech channel now, its still perfectly fine.

Theres nothing seriously wrong with it. The only reason I dont and didnt use it is that its not what other people I wanted to talk to were using.



I'll add to this that I'm a borderline zoomer millenial so this isnt old man 90s nostalgia.

Why does this board seem hostile to feminism by waving it away as identity politics? Neoliberal corporate feminism is one thing, but you don't have to throw the baby out with the bathwater as so many board users here seem to do out of chauvanism

There is a robust socialist-feminist tradition (note: Caliban and the Witch by Federici, Marxism and the oppression of women by Vogel) that has very convincing arguments for fleshing out the origins of misogyny within capitalist relations, as well as integrating feminism into socialist movements. Notably, Lenin discussed the importance of feminism with Clara Zetkin.

It is important to view misogyny as a superstructural manifestation of the fact that women are shafted as "reproducers" of both the bourgoisie and the working-class labour force in both biological and social senses. Women also serve as a reserve-army of labour in the case of working-calass women.

when has anyone here ever said that

I've seen people say something closely resembling that, that I think you're trying to strawman- they've said "women are scum but so are men", or variations on that, and its ALWAYS been with the intent of pointing out that they're both equally shit in general, that misanthropy>misogyny.

>it is myopic to assume that women have been fully incorporated considering the existence of the global south as a perpetual reserve-army of labor

I'm sure feminists in the global south have interesting things to say on that front and hard struggles to engage in. The extremely online kind of people who post here and elsewhere in the online leftyverse calling themselves feminists, not so much.


you don't have cock, you will always be less then lmao

>but it is myopic to assume that women have been fully incorporated considering the existence of the global south as a perpetual reserve-army of labor

You are 100% correct, I should have been clearer that I was talking about feminism within imperialist countries.

Honestly we aren't in any legal structure, so any change of said agreement would require renegotiation. So yeah…


This isn't a military coup, this is the military distributing food. That gives them fucking feudal tiers of power.

Yeah vassalisation is a better term.

I wonder what being under military control would be like here, it's typically always had wildly varying results.

This is called an Empire, Europe has had to many of those.

Not being allowed to leave the EU without their permission while having to take on all their laws is about as close to vassalisation as you can get.

>it ended up being Literally encoded into the Soviet Constitution by Lenin

Interesting fact: Stalin argued against this when thinking up the structure of the Soviet Union, but was overruled by Lenin.



ignore him he's just a fucking liberal,



>liberalism pretty much got the general idea of how to run a state down pretty well, its problem was that capitalism subverted the social contract, mutating the state from a mutually beneficial union of citizens

That's essentially the position of a naive idealist who just got his first taste of disappointment. You are talking as if you were comparing a point in the past with the current state of affairs, but what you are actually doing is comparing mythical liberal nonsense you learned as a kid in school with your impression of today's society which isn't as silly because you are living in it.


>the idea that the majority is always right means that-

*record scratch* I've never heard anybody claim that. The claim of direct-democracy shills is that referenda are more likely to deliver results you want to see than elected politicians voting on that.



>The claim of direct-democracy shills is that referenda are more likely to deliver results you want to see than elected politicians voting on that.

Also the claim that democracy in general, if believed to be accurate by the population or people in power and asserted as a rightful institution, can act to empower whatever is voted on on the basis that to subvert it from a place of authority would be to undermine that authority or the decision that ran against the democratic will. Cockshott also made that argument in one of his socialist referendum videos when somebody suggested the state wouldn't allow such a decision to be made or be enacted. He said something to the effect of they'd be afraid to counteract it because it would de-legitimize them, or that the knowledge of the popularity of the democratically approved act would embolden the population to further resistance, feeling that they are in the position of strength and/or in the majority.

But yeah, never see anybody claim democratic will is some kind of moral arbiter. Not even process obsessed liberals seem to think that.



>The claim of direct-democracy shills is that referenda are more likely to deliver results you want to see than elected politicians voting on that.

So let's get me banned

I am slightly left-leaning centrist(death sentence anywhere on the internet) and I enjoy listening peoples opinions and political views, so I came here to lurk a bit. I didn't find much interesting stuff so I thought I would ask peoples general reasons of their political leaning and worldviews and why they believe in whatever they, well, believe in.

And especially do you express your political views much in public and do you spend time with people who have radically different political views than you IRL?

You seem like you are about to be a fuckwit. I swear so many threads start like this and turn into "But obviously…"

Anyways, Communist, obviously. Anarchism is lame. Just a waste of time, any difference from Marxism is just a sign of failure, a lack of understanding, etc….

The arguments for Communism and agaimst Communism are too compelling to ignore. That is why anti-communists only say platitudes…

Brasil geral 3 que na verdade devia ser 4

Monument to Marechalíssimo Bolsonaro, said to be the greatest leader Brazil ever had, both while an independent country and after his selfless offer of annexation was denied and the subsequent offer of colonization was accepted. Built soon after his enlightened presidency, marshalcy and vice-royalty came to an end as he passed away in bliss. It currently stands at the center of a flattened area where the bombed ruins of the Supreme Court used to be. It's surrounded by a security radius of 500 yards patrolled day and night by the Brazilian detachment of the Marine Corps, in order to deter a permanent stream of would-be vandals. The inscription on the plinth reads "To the memory of the eternal friend of the USA government, who died like he lived. Property, ™, © and ® of the USA Government Inc." (2043, recolorized) edição

De uma forma ou de outra, não vejo problema em um meio-termo: espalhar todos os podres dos nomes que ele está indicando. Com uma base de apoio daquelas, é quase garantido que todos os nomes vão estar sujos. Já vai ser bastante lama.

Merkel joins Macron in call for ‘real, true’ European army after Trump slams idea

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for a “real, true” European army to be created, just days after French President Emmanuel Macron did the same – and received backlash from Donald Trump for doing so.“We should work on a vision of one day establishing a real European army,” Merkel said during an address to MEPs at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Monday.


Democrats seek agreements with Trump administration

A lame duck session of Congress opens today with Democrats signaling that they wish to reach agreement with the Trump White House on a range of budget and policy issues in order to “clear the decks” before the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives takes office in January.The Senate and House must pass seven of 12 separate appropriations bills by December 8 to avoid a partial shutdown of the federal government, with the most contentious bill involving funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Think of it as the most momentous military planning on Earth right now.

Who’s even paying attention, given the eternal changing of the guard at the White House, as well as the latest in tweets, sexual revelations, and investigations of every sort? And yet it increasingly looks as if, thanks to current Pentagon planning, a twenty-first-century version of the Cold War (with dangerous new twists) has begun and hardly anyone has even noticed.

In 2006, when the Department of Defense spelled out its future security role, it saw only one overriding mission: its “Long War” against international terrorism. “With its allies and partners, the United States must be prepared to wage this war in many locations simultaneously and for some years to come,” the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review explained that year.

Twelve years later, the Pentagon has officially announced that that long war is drawing to a close — even though at least seven counterinsurgency conflicts still rage across the Greater Middle East and Africa — and a new long war has begun, a permanent campaign to contain China and Russia in Eurasia.

“Great power competition, not terrorism, has emerged as the central challenge to U.S. security and prosperity,” claimed Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist while releasing the Pentagon’s $686 billion budget request in January. “It is increasingly apparent that China and Russia want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian values and, in the process, replace the free and open order that has enabled global security and prosperity since World War II.”

Of course, just how committed President Trump is to the preservation of that “free and open order” remains questionable given his determination to scuttle international treaties and ignite a global trade war. Similarly, whether China and Russia truly seek to undermine the existing world order or simply make it less American-centric is a question that deserves close attention, just not today.

The reason is simple enough. The screaming headline you should have seen in any paper (but haven’t) is this: the U.S. military has mPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Moral victory

That's neither how you spell oil or opium, or petrodollar, or intelligence dominated black market.

>Realized I'm on /leftypol/

OK THAT'S FINE Let me tune my whistle to fit your narrative; you lads are just as bad as the faggots on /pol/.

>American imperialism utilized asymmetric warfare during it's conquest of the Vietnamese government and, albeit losing the military aspect of it's incursion quite dramatically(limping soldiers), capitalism prevailed and dominated the country as American assets took control of government positions, securing the exact same interests as would have been taken by the military were it possible for a foreign military to fight an insurgency, a hilariously impossible feat that every military knows and has known since the first occupation of territory ~10,000 years ago and was well understood before boots were ever on the ground in Vietnam

That means that the USA sent soldiers to their miserable deaths intentionally and are horrible people, exactly like you want the narrative to be presented to you.

It however does not mean the American incursion into Vietnam was not a resounding success. Go look at Afghanistan, thousands of troops dead for "seemingly no reason" LOL WE LOST GUYS MAKE SURE YOU TELL CHINA WE LOST LOL

Hebben jullie de formidabele episodes van rechtse autistische screeching gevolgd omtrent PVDA die nu in Zelzate gaan besturen samen met SP.A?


Een belangrijk detail: S&V ging spreken voor de Marnixring, een rijke rechtse serviceclub, en werd door hen gefinancierd. Ze zijn net zozeer verweven met het grootkapitaal (dat hun constante anti-vakbondagitaties én verdelende retoriek wel weet te smaken) als de Amerikaanse alt-right. Mensen die zeggen dat het hier slechts om "jongeren met een mening" gaat, zijn (gewild dan wel ongewild) blind voor de functie die deze fascisten objectief vervullen in de maatschappij.

Laat ons daarnaast niet vergeten dat S&V op hoog niveau connecties heeft met de N-VA, talloze leden op N-VA-lijsten had staan en dat de ondervoorzitter van Jong N-VA ook actief lid was van S&V. Zou me weinig verbazen als Francken en co nog flink wat rechtser zijn dan ze zichzelf voordoen.



Hypothese A: gewoon typisch rechts autisme.

Hypothese B: excuses klaarmaken voor het doorbreken van het echte cordon sanitaire wanneer VB weer 15% haalt.

Hypothese C: excuses klaarmaken voor het doorbreken van het echte cordon sanitaire binnenkort in Ninove.

I see.



The DPRK still had to outlaw jeans and tattoos to prevent people from getting them. A socialist government would still need to be involved in social engineering not just via incentive economics but with deterrents as well like the threat of re-education through labour.



In a certain context they probably are.



He's dead all right. A friend of mine went to his open casket and said he looked dead.

I'm almost certain the label will be milking him via unreleased material for years.



bullshit, coercion works quite well. if what you say were the case historical change is a fantasy. But how do you think Christianity and Islam became so completely followed in their respective countries? States used direct and indirect coercion to make people convert to the religion. It's not a fucking secret that coercion and repetition work like charms. It's the belief in the opposite that is idealist nonsense.
