Why is this surprising? The dominate superstructure always sublimates art and culture to reflects its own class interests, and liberalism is no exception. It's just basic Marxism, m8.

How was it revised? Seriously asking. Wasn't the film just a Hollywoodified adaptation of the slave revolt?

 No.13172

This is an asinine thread.

Culture isn't static and should not be.

If anything, the bourgeois ideologues have only not gone far enough, if even possible for said bourgeoise, in forging the new culture.
In addition to creating new proletarian culture, the Soviets rewrote fairy tales to remove feudal and patriarchal elements, sometimes without even being subtle about it. For example the princes and princesses are replaced with Soviet administrators and humble peasants. And That doesn't even go to Soviet films, for example, 20,000 Leagues, which has even stronger, the original having a little already, antiimperialism themes. Link rel, the famed Chinese writer, took old tales and told them in service of revolution. There are many films, to give more examples, that have been appropriated, too, by LGBTQ people to be used for the struggles. And obviously, there's the retelling of Exodus by the enslaved Africans to serve their journey towards their liberation.

If there is ever a revolution, this only will be developed even more, because all culture must change in tandem with their society's base.

How much do you guys read a day (time, pages)? What do you consider ideal? Do you devote markedly more time/note-taking to theory/philosophy per page than other non-fiction or they pretty much the same?

Reading for the first time in years, I'm not really sure what I should be aiming for as a baseline, especially since my schedule is pretty open. I'm reading a rather long history book at the moment at the rate of about 20-50 pages a day, yet it takes me hours to get through due to extensive note-taking and writing down words I want to commit to memory. I enjoy it and it seems to pay off, but I can't deny it's almost prohibitively meticulous. There's so much I want to read between now and this time next year that I'll never get to if I keep this pace. Just wanna get a ballpark from you guys.

Also discuss whatever you're reading now, plan to read, other questions you have about reading, note-taking, and so on that isn't fit for /edu/. OP is just a springboard.

 No.12422

>>12421

I dont track pages really. I just spend a good 3-4 hours everyday reading/notetaking/journaling off of whatever nonfiction I’m reading. I’m slow as fuck however so a rough estimate would probably be 30-40 pages in that time. However I do have more spare time then most so it’s not a good benchmark.

If you go to a big library you’ll realize that even if you read your whole life and did nothing else you probably wouldn’t even cover 1% of the books out there. Knowing this it’s important to keep in mind reading is ultimately to develop your own thinking/creativity so you can write your own books/theory later. It also helps put into perspective you should only really read what you like/what is suited to your personality and attitudes. There has to be a certain point you stop reading and start writing instead otherwise you’ll just end up reading your life away. Also if you read uncritically without taking notes/ adding your own thoughts and thought process you wont get much out of it- you’ll only remember vague details.

So nowadays I use books to trigger my own thoughts on topics to jot down really.

the guide

first, choose a nonfiction book you’d like to read and set aside an hour or so. I recommend something that feels like reading it would be nice, but which you do not feel a lot of pressure to read.

second, read the title page and scan the preface. at this point, try to set aside your impressions and see what the author thinks the book is actually about. the title and subtitle might actually be a better guide to this than anything you’ve heard about the book.

third, using the table of contents as a guide, take a few chapters (the first, the last, and any which seem particularly vital or pivotal to the book), and sort of x-ray them. read the first and last few paragraphs; read the section titles if it has any, read the first and last paragraph or two of each section. you don’t need to be strict about this, the point is to get a sense of the contents of these chapters and their relationship to the book as a whole.

fourth, examine the remaining chapters in the same manner. any order will be fine. just adjust as necessary if you find you’re losing sight of the whole work or of the parts of the chapter at hand.

again, you should spend no more than an hour on these four steps. you want to get a feel for the contents of the whole, and for the contents of each chapter that comprises the whole. this sounds like a difficult task, but it’s actually fairly straightforward. you just take an hour or so and apply these steps.

when you’re ready, you can now read the book in full. you will have the bones, and much of the meat, in your head already. the book should be far less intimidating, and your comprehension should be far higher. but there’s no reason you need to do this any time soon. hopefully, with some books, you will feel compelled to give a more thorough reading right away. if you don’t, that’s fine and now you know. move on to another book.

Hello everyone, I want to make a topic about books, but, ones that are too trashy for /edu/. Talk about books, request books, et cetera.

Well, I'll start off the thread by asking for recommendations for 'optimistic sci-fi' where humans and aliens get along (relatively speaking) and accomplish things. Bonus points if there's first contact involved, extra bonus points if there's interspecies romance. Mee-yow. I've already read a lot of books like this but I can't get enough. Thanks everyone.

I came here because I remember being very entertained by the series "Isaac Asimov's Robot City" even though it's not written by Isaac Asimov but by various authors, it's a good read but I read it when I was younger and I don't have a copy of the books anymore. Check it out if you like scifi and AI.

What's the cheapest way to print a copy of a digital book (that I pirated)? I can't read for too long on a screen, mainly because it's uncomfortable and because I get easily distracted. Plus, I would like to recommend >>13688 to my dad but I don't want to subject him to hours and hours of looking at a screen.

I hear some reading devices are like paper to look at. You might try one of those. Probably cheaper than printing books.

This sounds about right. The whole great man angle is excessively liberal, and it confused the shit outta me why V only has one protege instead of as many as possible. It's not a good demonstration of actual revolution or even anarchy specifically, so meh, but even understanding the radlib context it's really bizarre for the revolution to hinge on one (wo)man and a student. It makes some sense character-wise for V to be like that but why write the character that way? Especially since V is thematically supposed to represent the resistance that's inherently produced by tyranny. This lends itself to a group dynamic, but that's only referenced in the movie with everyone wearing the masks at the end.

The movie actually have a better and realistic depiction of a mass movement against fascism than the comic. Because even libs are still more successful in that than anarchists especially the pre-20th century ones that Moore tried to emulate.
>>12305
True that. All you need to know about how much of a fake anarchist Moore was at the time is his pitch for DC’s Twilight of the Superheroes. Which can be found here:
https://ia801906.us.archive.org/28/items/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes.pdf
He might be much better now, but back then he was Stan Lee level of scumbagery. Which hilariously enough the same thing that made Moore hate his biggest fanboy Grant Morrison. He did became a much better person after getting fucked over by corporate but that’s decades later.

He's the villain of a badly written cartoon show. They made him a sadist because it's the only way for the writers to show he's the villain since everyone who watched the show came to realize White Fangs are in the right (did they seriously expect people to sympathize with a corporation that uses slave labor just because the heir of said corporation is one of the main characters?)
But then Edgy Sadist Adam only made him cooler, so the writers to decide to make him even more obsessed with Blake.
I'd have preferred a more level-headed villain, but heh, it's still a lib show that makes a horrible job in portraying minorities. I'm more surprised there aren't any money obsessed not-jews in Remnant.

I think its pretty obvious from the opening that the final boss fight of the season is going to be Robot Gurl being hacked by Ernest Khalimov and turning against the cast and absolutely fucking wrecking them with god powers.
I assume that either Ren or Nora is getting murked and / or turning on everyone else.
The opening also leads me to assume this is probably the penultimate chapter of the story / the "all is lost" section of the hero's journey. with the next season probably being the final.

An actual subversion of expectations would just be killing the entire main cast and then centring on a group of heroes like 50 years in the future whose names also start with R W B and Y. would be funny

Yeah making Adam a sadist is a bit of a libtard thing if you know a lot about the liberal mindset.
Liberals dont think that people who hold beliefs outside "Muh window" are acting rationally or in good faith and are just acting out their personal problems on society as a whole. Obviously this actually does apply to some people (/pol/yp's) but not pro-civil rights revolutionaries.

Also making Adams ideology that he wants to murder all humans indiscriminately makes him more like Idi Amin then say mandela, Malcolm or king

Posting again from GET because it seems like that board is mostly consumed by the /leftytrash/ general. Wanted to start up a Bunkerchan movie nights thread. I'm thinking tomorrow evening I'm going to stream Reds on cytube to kick off some regular movie nights. Anybody can do the stream of course, nothing it stopping you, but I figured in the future people can suggest some movies or just announce their stream and people can come in. I might stream Reds later tonight, but aiming for tomorrow just because I've got a family thing I need to go to.

Next movie after Reds, I was thinking maybe a labor documentary. There are a couple out there following strikes and shit like that, could be fun.

Man I'll post it or something I dunno. I know this is pretty poorly planned but it's because I was just waffling on what day I wanted to do it since I'm busy tonight. I'm going to do it tomorrow around 8pm est. But like I said if anyone wants to commandeer the resurrection of movie night for their own streams have at it, pick a movie and post a link to a cytube stream.

>>12153

That does look pretty good! There is also a criterion collection movie called Harlan County, USA that is about a relatively large coal strike in the 70s. I'm not sure if I can stream it directly from the browser, me and some friends share a criterion account. I know some other services have ways of detecting if you are recording your screen and will block it with a black box. It looks like that particular documentary is on YouTube too though so I guess it doesn't matter.

We should watch some Soviet works too. Such as >>8840 or Come and See or even Soviet Comedies and discuss.
