>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 little show that merely is about Karl Marx, his friendship with Engels, how he met the love of his life and how his story began…. has made several anime Youtubers come out of the closet as right wingers. TomoNewsUS also has sperged out about the anime calling it a "horrible show" before it even was released. No one freaked out like this when the Japanese Happy Science sect made an anime about how their Buddha-Jesus saves the world from some Demonic Atheist Nazi Empire judging every Atheist as being possessed by Demons and China as a conspirator and warmongerer.

Most critiques of the Karl Marx anime are excellent now whatsoever and it is being praised the animation of the show which is above average despite being a Chinese production. Really makes me think. How could Xi the madman piss off all of the AnCap and Nazi Weebs by simply releasing a show like this?

This really isn't the way to go after Harvard. You could say the exact same thing about OSU or something and get similar statistics.


If you're going to go after elite universities the best thing to go after them for is how they perpetuate the ruling class and do research for the security state, Harvard and Yale are just as much a part of the Military Industrial Complex as Boeing or Raytheon.



In the event of revolution the "ivy leagues" would have to burned to the ground with their faculty locked inside (also ivy league graduates and their relatives would be treated with extreme suspicion, much like child molesters are today.) The amount of suffering those institutions have caused over their lifetime is absolutely staggering.



Communications degree serves them right

Bad take, Christcom. They should be left standing and turned into a "horrors of capitalism" museum full of exhibits on the crimes of their researchers and alumni. They can also still double as a college campus for proles to learn at.

Trump recognizes US-backed head of Venezuela’s opposition Juan Guaido as country’s interim president


US President Donald Trump has recognized Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president in a provocative move against the elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

"Today, I am officially recognizing the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as the Interim President of Venezuela," Trump said in statement.

He added he would use "the full weight of United States economic and diplomatic power to press for the restoration of Venezuelan democracy" and encouraged other governments in the Western Hemisphere to also recognize Guaido.

>Obama gave the professional classes huge money streams through programs like Obamacare which institutionalize the money-grabbing finance and the medical industry want.

Again, your confusing professional interest from corporate interests. The relationship between the insurance industry, pharmaceuticals and doctors is very complicated. Some doctors are effectively bribed by these two industries (medical reps wining and dining doctors, for example, to market their medications not on merit but on the personal relationship the rep forms with the doctor, plus some real perks [bribes] given to the doctors). Some doctors oppose these trends but are powerless as atomized individuals to do anything against corporate syndicates that have gigantic financial muscle to crush them. So they obey or keep their mouths shut or become apathetic or indifferent. Their doctor's associations as far as i know authoritarian and have no democratic input from the doctors but vacuum of their money with mandatory dues, arbitrary testing, and putting forth new regulations on their actions. In other words, Obamacare had a very mixed result, just like the introduction of Medicaid and Medicare created redundant state and private bureaucratic behemoths that are needed to control an absurb system that is public and private which an NHS system would flatten and simplify



Not turning out is effectively the same as defection, retard.

Also I'm assuming voters are voting for which policies they want, and generally don't pay attention to moronic narratives. People who aren't rich or educated-class literally have no one to vote for, except in an indirect sense (mainly, who benefits their employer or promises to hand out direct financial incentives). The direction of their vote is largely locked in based on a combination of location, race (and its associated patronage groups), sector of employment (this is the big one), and overall socioeconomic status (if you're poor, you overwhelmingly don't vote and if you do, it's usually party-line). The people aren't stupid, but they are effectively gerrymandered because these factors are all known to demographers, and thus influence how district lines are formed. By gerrymandering, the effect of large parts of the population can be mitigated into safe zones, where the two arms of the ruling party can more or less appoint candidates. The people who can swing the vote, then, are those who have it good both ways; that is, they have things in the Republican Party that they like, and things in the Democratic Party that they like, and actually have reasons to swing both ways. The average voter doesn't have a reason to switch between parties, because one party or the other obviously matches their wants and there is no real reason why a poor, deeply religious person who opposes abortion would ever vote Democrat (the abortion issue is a giant loser among poor Democrats since they see it, correctly, as an attack on their very existence; it takes quite a bit for the Democrats to retain these voters, that being at least nominal support for poor relief programs, but if you're getting charity through the church and here's Clinton cutting your food stamps and forcing you into workfare, it makes your choice very obvious even if you don't like fiscal conservatism. pro population control policies are tantamount to a declaration of war against you and your religious beliefs, while Republicans just want to cut your food stamps that the Democrats also want to cut anyway. that the Republicans do suspiciously little about abortion doesn't seem to matter, because at least they're sayiPost too long.

I don't see how the Democratic Party survives when it is headed by a man who so openly abandons the professional class, highly educated base that the Democrats have been trying to hold since 1972. You're talking about the faction that has basically kept the Democrats relevant at all after the 1968 clusterfuck being told to go home, in favor of the mob of poors. Sure, it sounds good for Bernie to say populist things, but it's going to rankle the New Democrats who have made the party their home. Trump, for all his bullshit, was in practice just another neocon and perfectly acceptable to the GOP as their front man. Bernie is repudiating basically the party as most people living today would remember it, and is credibly trying to turn the Democrats into something they really never have been. It's a repudiation and a declaration from the base that, as far as they are concerned, there is no Democratic Party. The Berniecrats are open that they consider the New Democrats interlopers and want to kick them into the basement. There is no possible alliance between these, not even one of party loyalty. This is way bigger than McGovern, who was well within acceptable parameters of Democrat liberalism.

I'm fully expecting Bernie to get rigged hardcore in a blatantly obvious way, but I'll throw him a bone for the small chance it will actually work and shit gets fucked up.



that is pretty intentional i think. Trump models himself on Reagan, or at least the caricature of Reagan that appears on Fox and right wing radio. He follows the trickle-down voodoo model that Reagan did. Kim Jong Un is sort of like his Gorbachev, who he's gonna negotiate peace or at least a drawback with. He's gonna do aggressive 'rollback' in Latin America, and saber rattle against Iran. Even his MAGA slogan was stolen from Reagan, and Trump is a celebrity turned politician. It seems like the Cold War again because he's basically transposing the Reagan presidency onto today in every way he can think of.

Also, now that the War On Terror has mostly run its course (even according to themselves, ISIS defeated etc) - they have to go back to Cold War. The US needs to be doing war of one sort or another at all times, so what else are they gonna do but go back to the old standby. Also, since socialism, social democracy and communism are all now synonymous and interchangeable in US discourse, if the Republicans restart the Cold War against "communists" they can link the Democrats to the national enemy because some of them have called themselves "socialists".

How will socialism work towards solving the clothing problem? The fashion industry, particularly the idea of "fast fashion" is one of the most exploitative industries on this planet and a lucrative business for imperialists, not to mention the environmental cost of all of these fabrics thrown away annually. Aside from working to abolish exploitation in a general sense, how could clothing differ under socialism in working towards a more ecologically friendly alternative? What about the gendering of clothing? inb4 utopianism, it can be interesting to speculate

Should we take a page from Edward Bellamy's Equality?

>No longer are the making and cleaning of clothes farmed out to tailoring businesses and laundries. Rather, clothes and shoes are also manufactured from various grades of treated and strengthened paper. They are made by machines, which can be set easily to produce either standard ranges or one-offs to your own design and size. Dirty clothes are discarded and recycled: no washing, no ironing. Julian West remarks that 'it is rather startling to find the problem of clean clothing solved by the abolition of the washtub, although I perceive that that was the only radical solution'

Should we emulate Pol Pot?

>Pot forced all the people to dye their clothes black, and appears to have issued new clothes periodically only to soldiers, cadres, and some peasants.

Universal nudism?

We need to reinvent individualism in a way that stresses the agency of the individual over his own community. This is an incredibly important aspect of individualism, since the individual is really just the focus of a bunch of influences from his environment. If you don't give the individual control over their environment, you don't give them control over themselves. That's how capitalism traps us.


File: 303e879cd64b70b⋯.jpg (202.31 KB, 1200x800, 3:2, 4.jpg)

With the level of clothing industry we have today we can easily make standardized clothing with surprising amounts of freedom in style with a fraction of the infrastructure.

The first step is conscientization. No more fucking consumerist autism, hoarding huge piles of clothing you will wear twice in your life or getting new clothes every season.

Second part is setting good quality standars for clothing so people feel atached and motivated to have responsible amounts of clothing.

From this mindset we can set up our continental/ global clothing suplying guidelines.

With 100 shirt designs available in 100 colors we have over 10k possible combinations just for torsos. And trust me 100 by 100 is a laughable number it could be 1000 by 1000 and we would still be miles behind the millions upon millions of shitty designs we have today. Repeat the same process for legware, underware and winter clothing and we have the entire world supplied with varied quality clothing.

But this is just the basics, local sewing workshops/clubs or factories can suply regions with traditional and custom clothing and allow for people to create their own designs with good equipment and materials. If you really care about "expressing your individuality" move your ass and make your own clothes to prove you really care.

I'm going for a minor in economics, and in every single one of their classes when Marx gets inevitably brought up all they have to say about him is

>Marx's theories were discredited by the fall of the Soviet Union, which is why we don't teach them anymore

Am I stupid or something? Weren't the majority of Marx's theories about the capitalist system and not how a future civilization should be built? What the hell does the fall of the Soviet Union have to do with like 75% of what Marx said?

Just how common is this lazy form of teaching? Does it get any better? I've only got one or two classes to go before I finish my minor

Pic related, it's from my Micro textbook. Note that there's no mention of the food shortages that plagued the neoliberal administration

One thing which is funny about neoclassical economics is that it does occasionally need theories which are actually in line with reality and you'll find some of them have marxist origins, though they never mention it. To give two examples, the theories business cycles and creative destruction have marxist origins. You learn the theories but not where they come from.


Marx is controversial and professors are stooges who enforce the status quo, so they will not go out of their way to think differently from the stream of ideas pushed towards them. Even ones with tenure are not willing to bring up Marx because they want raises and head of department status. Business as usual. Also, a lot of economics and other business discipline professors are flat out bourgeois apologists and neoliberal retards.

Wow, I'm truly shocked by this development.



Upper class privileges that come with Bourgeoisie institutions especially around the entertainment industry involving desperate prole actors or even worse off backstage workers and young impressionable interns willing to do and put up with a lot of shit to secure themselves a job and the fear of speaking out about a famous and rich celebrity stops them reporting abuse.

And if your pulling some reverse lib idpol trash where only Whites can do wrong then take note of the other side of the economic scale where there is a huge amount of unreported rape and sexual/violent abuse in lower class families mostly around domestic cases or child abuse.

This will be a book review, or, more precisely, a TL;DR of a book, for (you). I've read several threads lately that bemoan the lack of proper theory threads lately, so I'll try (again) to make digestible an otherwise long- and boring-ass book for my beloved community of leftypol. Bumps of interests, intelligent questions, screen-caps, etc. will be much appreciated. Let's begin.

Let's start with the most important thing:

>I'm a regular leftypol faggot, and why should I read your shit book TL;DR?

Good question, faggot. This might help you to better undestand:

1. the absolute state of /pol/tards;

2. the absolute state of your reactionary relatives;

3. and probably, your own background.

>What do I gain from this?

Understanding. Better debating skills. Theory to act upon…

Background info to the book:

Some intellectual faggots (Jews, communists, psychoanalysts, sociologists, socialists, progressives, "plain democrats", and the mixture of all of these) who would otherwise face purging in Nazi Germany escaped to America. They took up the task to analyze contemporary (1947-1950) U.S. society based on their experiences and derived theories of European fascism. Their self-imposed tasks were to:

1. determine whether there was a threat of fascism in the US;

2. identify the main trends and mechanisms of fascism (worldwide);

3. identify the reasons for fascism.

To complete these tasks, said faggots employed first and foremost (at that time cutting-edge) sociological methods: surveys of 2k+ people, and interviews of 'extremes' [high scoring and low scoring individuals based on their closeness to fascistic ideals], based on the surveys. Two thirds of the book is sociological in nature: they meticulously lay down the methods used, the theories behind the questionnaire, the reasons for their questions, their own errors, and the data that seem to support their theories.
