How do you dress? What are you wearing today? How should you dress, as a Marxist? Which trends are proletarian and which are bourgeois? <br/>Discuss.(On leftypol_archive board 4 now. Will be moved to alt_archive when built)

I'd say so.


>I think it's a shame that "western attire" is basically normalized everywhere. I wish I could use african-style clothes, arabian male dresses, folk latin american clothes, etc. Working in the confines of "jeans/chinos + t-shirt/button shirt" is fucking trash.
dude, wear those crazy foreign clothes, nobody cares if it looks fly and you can pull it off.

Is ward worth reading at all?


The pacing and focus of the story is a 180 from Worm. It's far slower and fixates more on characters dealing with trauma and the aftermath of Worm than it being nonstop conflict. If that interests you then you'll get more enjoyment than others did from it.


I really like the audiobook version of Worm, finished it recently(even with its flaws, I like seeing it get better over time-):

I have a very strong aversion to most superhero stuff (there's stories and characters I definitely adore though throughout the years tho), and this hits a unique spot that I can definitely resonate with. I feel like the parahumans setting has much more potential than most works it shares a premise/genre with, and despite some of the flaws it has (need for editing, certain drags/confusing parts, etc.), it really stands out on its own. In terms of existing in the larger sphere of "capeshit", I'd go and say its one of the best creations in the entire premise, helped in a large part by the way the narrative presents itself. The protagonist and their interactions feel a lot more human than most heroes and villains in other stories, and the entire story takes on that lifelike element. The interludes (interlude 10x especially oh my lord) work really well, because they give a different perspective than the usual protagonist's narration, and can take crazy turns with that. It's also pretty cool that a lot of the main characters are young, but not in the usual youth that glamourizes high school life, quite the opposite in fact. As someone at a similar age to the characters by the end of the story, I can say they certainly feel and act similar enough to the way someone our age IRL would, especially if thrust in such a wacky superpowered premise and world like the one they're in. The sociopolitical part of the setting gives me somewhat similar vibes to Watchmen and early Spawn, especially with how the image of things presented by popular culture and media is incongruent with the reality that the characters actually live through. The criminality of many of the characters feels a lot more real in motivation, and the plot following "villains" as full-fledged characters is just a breath of fresh air. It sees the average "superhero" for how fucking deranged they'd actually be; it looks at what would happen if sociopaths, sadists, and emotionally stunted people got abilities that enabled them to act more on their tendencies, and its all so interesting. The use of powers is also a lot more grounded, and the way they're applied is certainly a lot more compelling than the average story, also in a weird way feeling almost shonPost too long.

I really enjoyed it. It was exciting and most of the characters were well written. The last arc was really exciting and the ending was good (though the end isn't exactly the happiest), and Taylor has really good development throughout the story. It does have problems, the biggest of which is its awful pacing. Some fights took way to long despite having little impact in the story, and the timeskip was poorly done and doesn't allow for you to get to know lots of the characters. It also could have done with an editor. But all in all I think it brings a lot to the table and I highly recommend reading it.


but is it leftist?


I've redistributed a red flag from work and I wanted to turn it into a flag for my union branch. Unfortunately I've no real experience with sewing anyone got any advice?

Hah ah fucking English language and it's homonyms.


what's the best fabric for a balaclava


The type of balaclava most common in your region, unless you want to wear a unique identifiable object for a mask


wearing a balaclava is already "unique"


Not really, Balaclava's and 'unique' ones have entered contemporary fashion, really hitting the mainstream this last year.
I see it as a reation to the CCTV-ifiication of our cities, that is for a different board but i think there is a lot to unpack and explore.


So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments.

We should rebuild some of them as well. People don't just have utilitarian needs and need a "spiritual" or imaginative side which is opposed to efficiency but which startles you.

>I dont buy it.
Even if you don't the bourgeoisie certainly does, albeit from an inverse and mostly uncritical manner. One only needs to look at the federal government's reaction to Jan 6, specifically Biden's 'Temple of Democracy' remark to see how widely accepted these supposedly fringe theories pertaining to the 'lasting', 'idealized' and 'eternal' are. Or hell, even Trump being all retvrn for the Jeffersonian architecture that has characterized Washington DC since at least the 1850s. In their eyes, the most heretical thing you can do is desecrate these 'temples'—and what's especially disappointing is that the maggots who stormed the Capitol building couldn't even be bothered to fully commit.
>i dont think we have to literally remove all of what exists or it will taint society.
I never said that; but again, to the bourgeoisie (and their allies) that's what establishing socialism has often looked like in practice. I find it difficult to imagine them not foaming at the mouth after realizing their precious monuments are no longer sacred.
>i think the positive side is actually that they try to have a whimsical and lush aesthetic at lower cost. This is bringing fun shit to the masses.
A lot of the architectural output from the Gilded Age was intellectually grounded by a fusion of the City Beautiful movement, complaints over the end of Manifest Destiny and a growing obsession with vulgar Darwinian 'race science'. The ruling class at the time thought this was just so fun and delightful~! Everyone focuses on the first part because that's all flâneurs and bourgeois dilettantes care about. Why should any socialist worth their salt want to preserve that? If you're gonna bring back a 'lush' and 'whimsical' aesthetic to the built environment then I think it ought to be downstream from its use. Believe it or not, it is possible! Louis Sullivan famously said, "form follows function" but he also went into the 20th century as the biggest lover of ornament to ever exist, so of course he died penniless.
>Our architecture has changed drastically, much new shit is being built all the time, in an objectively verifiable way capitalism is building a new world in the place of the old

ok ur right



There's nothing bourgeoisie about the culture and beauty appreciated by the common people. In fact I can imagine nothing more bourgeoisie than >>4673 it was literally made by and for bourgeois technocrats who could use the proletariat to fulfill their most degenerate egotistical fantasies it had nothing to do with the wants of the people, who when left to their own devices create beauty and complexity, marking their presence everywhere they can. Or is that simple desire to exist within their own architecture a bourgeoisie deviation.


>the people
you're not a marxist, kill yourself
also nothing wrong with this >>4673 looks comfy as hell actually

:Broadsword Edition:

>What is HEMA or WMA?

Historical European Martial Arts or sometimes Western Martial Arts are attempts at decoding, studying, and practicing the history, art, and fighting of everything from the Medieval Period to Early Modern Combatives.

What traditions are you lot studying at the moment?

Me? Going through George Silver's "Paradoxes of Defence" to expand my regimental broadsword/sabre repertoire.

An anon a while back recommended Star Trek to me because it was the most "communist" media produced in capitalist society. All Captain Kirk does is hop from planet to planet and fuck space bitches. Is there communism or have I been memed? Apparently the director of the show was influeced by Posadism but outside the aliens I do not see gommunism anywhere in the show.

The Federation just plays the stupid game (capitalism) that the Ferengi like so much and rewards them with stupid prizes (demanding rent from them that they have to use for lmao).


>There are borders.
Between the Federation and the other factions who are not communists.


They live on borrowed time becauase at the end of DS9 they get Rom as the Grand Nagus, and he has read Marx (at least implicitly since he quotes him)


>that we will be stuck with things like secret police and military coups and settler colonialism and realpolitik even in the future

They literally overcome those things. They aren't "stuck with them." The existential threat of the Dominion War means the specter of those things reappears, but they're able to overcome them. TNG does the same thing with The Drumhead.

I don't think you really understand the show's central thesis.


Rom is unironically a better socialist than Feddies, because he's actually read at least like a page of Marx, as opposed to just preaching "uhh, we got better and have no more famines or wars because something" like Picard always does.


So Jamie Peck recently joked that aliens are watching us and they were going to give us space communism, but then they decided we weren't ready. Because we can't even overcome racism within our own species.

Do you think aliens are among us?

>aliens decided we weren't ready for communism because we couldn't overcome racism
idk that sounds pretty racist tbh


In reality, we are all alien to each other….
Really makes you think

Go hug a random person today


capitalist society is truly alien nation


we were the ayy lmaos all along…

we have to defeat capitalism and spread communism across the universe


Nothing human is alien to me.



So here's a torrent full of torrents for the 9/11 Data set. Includes lots of videos, documents, audio recordings, animations, diagrams, etc revolving around the 9/11 attacks. The torrent here is about 100mb of torrent files only. Downloading all the data from the included torrents will net you over 3 TB of data. Feel free to pick and choose.

Would hate to see this data lost forever. Included a list of the torrents here.


don't you need like a supercomputer t stre terabytes? out of the e-loop heh

Going off this >>4480 anon's point about post-apocalyptic films; how does such fiction reproduce capitalist ideology generally?

Book of Eli has a lot of good ideas but kinda undermines it using dumb shit.


Is Tom Hanks' "Finch" a decently good post-apocalyptic movie?


>Pic 1
Literally the Lorax movie


>It's unusual in, for instance, a zombie apocalypse that somebody builds a wall or a fence to keep the zombies out. This would be a practical solution generally speaking, but where it does show up (as the writers have more recently become aware of the silliness), it's guaranteed to fail.

Like in land of the dead where humans have a mostly secure (capitalist) society that fails because they didn't know that zombies can just walk across the bottom of the fucking river.
