i always thought these kinds of games where kind of a good metaphor for being millionaire, just chancing numbers, no substance behind it, just like a millionaire has more money then he could possibly spend and being useless for him a player of one of theses games just tries to get a number higher without the number being good for anything

I have no interest in liberal identity politics or their moralisms about pronouns, the two 'journalists' are shallow pricks deserving scorn. However Ben is also disingenuous, and is deliberately provocative. The reaction of this transgender person is honestly understandable considering the situation. Imagine some snooty white dude - who looks and behaves like an edgy 15 year old - is talking smack and bringing up non-sequiturs about something in the lives of people like yourself while knowing nothing outside his own political dogma. Its the kind of behavior that in any other circumstance would get him a smack up the side of the head. Trans debate is important and Jenner's "bravery" is a PR-stunt, but to denigrate a mental issue with "muh genes" is the kind of derisive rubbish reserved for private arguments between friends and not public debates.

I don't get it when people say "real sword fighting wouldn't look good". I don't think anyone's advocating for 100% realism. I'm sure boxing in movies and irl look different too. Perhaps it's different for the uninformed, but historical swordplay looks better every way. Hell, some exchanges in sparring can be as theatrical as cinema all while being technically sound.

Since exaggerating or slowing bladework even with good technique for safety and the viewers' benefit is already a given, the next best aim would be to give "masters" or "experts" good and distinct forms when moving and fighting. Body language is part of acting, no?

Most opponents do not have full plate armor with chainmail underarmor. Even then, a rapier has the precision to strike through something like a visor hole.

ITT we help each other and guide each other on how to conduct a succesful youtube channel and to spread the word of /leftypol/ through breadtube.
Theory is now transmitted through youtube let's plays.
To make a youtube channel, you need:
>An editing software and editing skills.
>Knowledge on how to make thumbnails using photoshop (?).
>Knowdlege about how to make a script to your videos, how to mantain them interesting for the audience.
>Knowdledge to evade youtube's desmonetizations, as it has been proven that they also affect how Youtube interacts with the videos, pretty much shadow banning them.
>Knowdledge of the tech market to buy the best microphone for your buck.
>Knowledge to record yourself without looking to out of place.
>Knowledge to read a script with passion, instead of reading a school essay.

It doesn't matter if your content goes viral. Some people just follow whatever's popular. A lot of people seek out niche or less mainstream content. Particularly, there is demand from communists for decent quality content that attracts your attention, and if your video is interesting and engaging, without being to larpy or dogmatic out the gate, then it can be a good way to persuade sympathisers and political fence sitters. If you want some inspiration, prolekult is a really good cinematic quality channel on youtube, I highly recommend them.

I've thought about the algorithms thing and I have an idea. This came to me after theory pleeb and pals tried to do a youtube walkout. I'll explain the logic fully so you can poke any holes in my case here. If you want a short version just read the last paragraph for the actual praxis.

Striking as a youtuber doesn't make any sense, because youtube doesn't follow the usual business model of worker making a product and youtube selling it for profit. First of all youtube is not profitable to begin with, so any ad money is just offsetting the loss google takes on the platform. Second of all, political videos tend to get demonetized meaning they are not a source of revenue for youtube that can be withheld by striking. Rather, the relationship between the worker (content creator) and employer (youtube) is very different. When you (small time youtuber) upload content to youtube, youtube actually loses money. This is because it costs them money to host the video files and metadata and stream that to people and they get basically nothing in return for it. What money they do get comes from premium subscriptions and monetized videos, especially the ones from major media companies that put shit like Jimmy Fallon on youtube. That's why the algorithm relentlessly pushes it. Whatever money youtube makes from datamining small-scale users is dwarfed by the cost of streaming all that video. The only reason youtube tolerates this kind of thing and hasn't fully become like hulu/netflix is because they depend on small time viewers to watch the big time videos, and the only reason the viewers are on youtube at all instead of netflix/hulu is because of all the unique user-generated content youtube offers. It's the one thing they have on the competition, so they won't give it up and lose market share, even though the company loses money.

So if the relationship is different and striking is pointless, what could actually be a meaningful way of engaging in direct action against youtube? You have to look at the material situation and work from that. Figure out what gets them money and deny them that. Figure out what costs them money and give them more of that. In a nutshell, upload more videos and DO NOT monetize them. If you want to monetize your videos for you, do it externally through another service. And when people ask why they can't superchat or join throPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I watched a video in support of gratitude journaling which claimed it's one of the best ways to feel more positive about life.

I'm not sure how I feel about the idea, smacks a bit of self help woo woo but at the same time it isn't like it would be that difficult to try out.

Video for anyone curious

A gratitude journal would be a good start then, I also recommend cognitive-behavioral therapy like the classic book "Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy". The world surely sucks from the leftist pov but why pile all the negativity onto your mind? You can reshape your thinking patterns to focus on the best parts of your life.

For example, recall when you've been generous with your time, skills, material things. You can think about the impact you've produced: no matter how small in the grand scheme of things, it means something to the people you helped.

Maybe you can join some mutual aid group to have more opportunities for the good deeds…

Yeah… I guess… It's fucking hard being a leftist in this day and age let alone being a doomer leftist with no job.

I don't feel like anything I've contributed to the world really matters, because of course it doesn't - nobody is going to give me a decent life cause of it so what did anything I did really mean? If I can't live then what point is there in trying to do good deeds or improve things for anyone else? I think I'm quite a caring and good natured person on the whole but it rubs me the wrong way to think about bothering to do something for others when I need help and it doesn't come.

Why should I stick my neck out when nobody will do it for me? And why should I even try get a job or whatever when I feel so certain it won't make a difference?

I just want someone to help me and pull me out of this because I can't do it on my own. And it doesn't matter if 'but you have to, nobody else can fix your life', etc etc, I can't! Don't they understand that? Doesn't anybody care? What if I can't pull myself up and fix it, what then?

I don’t know is that a good idea to post this on that board, but I will try…

For some time I thought about the rightness to renounce certain forms of consumption as part of the fight against capitalism. I am able to understand that there are things that cannot be done without buying as new products, generating profit for private entrepreneurs, and they are needed in today's world. However, in my opinion, a consistent socialist should not feed this monster more than necessary. There is no need to buy an iPhone, coffee at Starbucks or a burger at McDonalds. It is worth mentioning some tips on how to survive in this mess. Every socialist should, in some sense be an ascetic.

- You don't need a smartphone if you have a laptop. A regular cell phone should be enough, today they have an internet browser installed to check basic things. And running applications from android or Ios is possible through PC emulators. Android applications can be downloaded without a Google account here:

-You don't need new clothes. Today's second hand shops have good quality textiles. It is worth mentioning that today's clothes are made of low quality fabrics and fibers that tend to be easily damaged. And the dyes used in them are often harmful to the skin and are poorly primed, which causes the color to wash quickly. It is worth mentioning here that it is good not to wear clothes with visible manufacturer logos. Why should you be an ad as a socialist? It is worth decontaminating them after buying clothes. They can be boiled in a suitable powder or treated with an ozone generator (highly recommended during a pandemic).

- Do you furnish the house? Take a look around the local flea market for old furniture. Often, such furniture is made of pure wood (not woodlike materials), and their presence and condition proves their strength. Be careful only on furniture that may have a bark beetle. Removing it with special chemistry is an additional expense.

- Food. Look for small food stores, these are usually run by the family, or if you live in the countryside you can get along with local farmers running small farms. It is worth having your own garden. The best idea if you live in a city is to grow your own perennial herbs in pots.

- You don't need a car. Today's public transport will take you anywhere you want, cheaper than if you bought fuel every time. However, this issue is very subjective and depends on many other factors.
