It's that time again. Post trams and trains and other rail vehicles. Both vehicles from AES and c*pitalist countries welcome.I am looking for this one very aesthetic picture of a tram going down a grassy incline. I think it was from Czechoslovakia but not sure.

the chicagoland Metra commuter train is cool, too. Might get on a ride just for fun one day.


It looks cool but it's badly maintained like most American T lines.

It is no better than this. "We should resist. What do you mean "what's the plan"?. Just resist(c)(tm) and somehow it all will work because empire bad and people want free". It is a schizoid anarkiddie nonsense.
>when they make you barely feel sorry for Dedra
I was only disappointed she wasn't killed.

The only real good part was prison and showing how backbreaking labor affects people. If they had balls or brains, they would also show how tis labor is not much better outside of prison and changing the "bad" boss to "good" one doesn't really make that much difference.


Exactly I always interpreted that she saw that kid as prey. All his weaknesses are obvious for her to exploit. Also in my headcanon Gomez is actually under a spell cast by Morticia.

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.

year+ late reply, but lulu


I don't read a lot of books but I'm curious about this one. What are your thoughts on Brave New World? I know nothing about Huxley tbh



It's fine, but I can imagine not enjoying it if you don't agree with the "why take away suffering when we're meant to suffer" angle. i only really see the book praised in right wing circles.

Also, just a pet peeve but it'll sometimes shift POV with no breaks which gets confusing.


What a fiction-book list to chew through?
It would be great if the list also included the page count so I can read through the shortest first.

<No mention of the andromeda trilogy that not only written by a soviet paleontogist but came up with the posadist communist aliens before Posadas himself did
The guy is noted to criticise not only capitalism but both Chinese and Soviet comtemporary socialism.
To get a better understanding of the subject on cosmic altruism i would suggest also reading the Killing Star and Three Body Problem that argued the opposite of cancerous destructive life that views cooperations as impossible. It's quite funny how the dark forrest hypethesis completely fall apart the moment any scrutiny or any serious observation of cellular cooperation of life on earth are made.


Been bingeing a few of these. Most are extremely low effort, and it's overall a bit of a forced subgenre, but some stuff can be genuinely spooky.

but is it leftist?


Pale is unbearably boring, and I loved Pact. Wildbow is really hit or miss these days.


easy to treat therapy as a one size fit all solution than it is to actually reconcile with why people are having those issues in the first place

Are you caught up with it? I've been reading it off and on (just got to arc 9) and found it interesting, but my main concern with it is that apparently wildbow planned for it to be a short work until he got more invested in it and decided to have it go beyond the story's original course. It's on arc 20 now, and I fear it's going to end up meandering in the way all of his story's do.


No, i've been reading it on and off too.


Just coming back to say that Wildbow peaked at the end of worm. He's not gonna write anything as good as that ending anymore.

Worm > Pact > Twig > Pale > Ward

I'm really excited that Goncharov is seeing a resurgence. There really isn't a better mafia movie, so seeing a whole new generation rediscover it and experience it for the first time is amazing.


I gotta admit, I thought it was overblown until I sat down to see it myself. Goncharov goncharowns.


>Is this inspired by Brigador lol?
>That's Zardoz stupid. Don't you know anything about cinema?

Everyone go watch Zardoz now.


Zardoz speaks to you, his chosen ones. You have been raised up from brutality, to kill the brutals who multiply, and are legion. To this end, Zardoz your god gave you the gift of the gun. The gun is good.

The gun is good.

The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life, and poisons the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the gun shoots death, and purifies the earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth and kill!


I feel like I should be excused for not having seen an obscure 1974 scifi movie.

What do you think of the Solarpunk literary genre? I find it very interesting, not only because I find the aesthetics very attractive, but also because it is openly anti-capitalist and has a very strong ideological content.
But I would like to know what /leftypol/ thinks.

Do you find a Solarpunk society the ideal society?anarcho-communismAnarcho-Communism

Anarchists co-opting solarpunk is good. It enables a pretty aesthetics (yes, with rare exceptions its an aesthetic and its appeal is being an aesthetic) to be an entry into the recognition of green-washing and issues with capitalism.

It's like Bernie Sanders.


It is neoliberalism complete with bourgeois psychology brainwashing trying to get their wage slaves to be "happy" with "positive thinking": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solarpunk
< themes of do it yourself ethics, convivial conservation, self-sustainability, social inclusiveness and positive psychology are often present.
<Self-sustainability, in which a person or organization needs little or no help from, or interaction with, others.
Literally just neoliberal individualism for DIY anarcho-redditors alone in their apartment pods. Hard to think of anything less communist than this anti-collective-struggle response to crisis like a dying dog going off to die alone.
>literary genre
Sci-fi is idealist, not materialism for people learning actual science, a word not used a single time in this thread. You can tell it's a technocrat redditor genre because they don't care about plants and fungi/bacteria who already have perfected solar extraction over millions of years. Why reinvent the wheel? The answer is obvious: $$$$$$$
>very strong ideological content.
Zizek disgusted
>the "punk" is a stereotype of a person who does not conform to the current system,
<the word 'punk' meant prostitute in Shakespeare's time and now means prison bitch
a utopia dreamed by rape victims? No wonder its so dreary lol
>called punk because they propose a way out of the current society
Solar power is such a normal, non-edgy part of ruling class capitalism that Obama did corporate subsidies for some grifters. Is it "edgy" to demand we extract exponentially more rare earth minerals from the periphery for the imperial core?

Did you bother looking it up? Fucking retard. Can't a person read a fucking architecture thread without being slandered? It means across gender and transsexual generally means they had a sex change operation and is a term more popular in the past. Transgender is more inclusive since not all trans people are transsexual. Literally nobody brought up trans people but somehow "solarpunk" convinced you to write a transphobic rant, pseudretard

Couldn't you have just deleted and reposted your post in full, instead of 3 seperate ones m8?


just re read tales of the bounty hunters, nice anthology


luthen is fucking crazy. saw gerrera aint even as extreme as him. he views his rebellion as a trap, something he cannot escape from. he has given up the very values of what makes a rebellion burn across the galaxy. friendship, kindship, love? he frames as giving up everything as his reputation his peace. he talks about his ego never being able to be mirrored, to have an audience, to be examined under light. he sees himself as the villain but thats not even the most important part. all his sacrifice has been about his image, his fucking peace. sure he mentions the people's life he's trampled on as a result of his "rebellion" but not as much as in depth as his own fucking self. this rebellion is a power trip for himself, in which he is conflicted between the views of a back to brunch liberal and the liberal projection of a revolutionary terror who is all about bloodthirsty violence. saw gerrera wont ally with anton kreegyr because of a difference of values but luthen is willing to sacrifice his rebel cell of 50 men to "maintain the rebellion". on a surface level this makes sense as it will enact protocol of the empire, but that doesnt even make sense when examined. networks build their strength, their power on connections. the empire responds accordingly. if anything it will make the empire more lax as a sort of anxiety release valve with the squashing of this particular rebel cell. saw gerrera wouldnt exterminate a rebel cell to "maintain the rebellion" but fight and kill them because of a difference of values. but luthen views this as an empowerment to the empire that will show the people they need to rebel. but people already have seen the empire. they dont need a closing iron fist, as he puts it. if anything it would tickle the interest of those with a conscience in his upper class realm of society. people still on the bottom will fight tooth and nail with the very values he feels he needs to abandon. and it will leave him behind, ironically, as people will forge connections while he's too busy doing the empire's jobs for them. an extremist centrist guilty about his rebellion.

a brilliant character. i hope the writers make him a villain. i think they will given the whole emperor palpatine-esque black robes parallel in the most recent episode(10). hell he even looks like fucking sheev himself hopefully the message will be that he will reject these values or other rebel cells will uprise against him. or a more fittingPost too long.

Last season just ended its HBO Max premiere


>When EW recently caught up with Iannucci, he insisted that season 2 will not be the show's last, at least as far as he is concerned
>"No," said the executive producer when asked if the show was canceled. "No, no, no, it's not. No."
>Iannucci explained that the cast had been let out of their contracts because of the COVID-caused delay in shooting season 2 of the show.
>"HBO doesn't really renew a season until the previous season is going out," he said. "Because we got delayed by the pandemic by about 18 months, we knew that meant everyone's contracts would run out, because they're contracted for a certain period. We just thought, everyone's got 101 other things to be doing, so it would be unfair to kind of keep them on hold in limbo. But everyone wants to do more. HBO are very keen. We'll make more when we can corral everyone together again. Everyone's up for it and we've already got ideas and thoughts about what happens next."
