> The golden snub-nosed monkey is endangered due to habitat loss. For instance, lichens are the main staple of the monkey's diet and dead trees have the greatest lichen coverage. Unfortunately, dead trees are harvested, thus reducing the quality of the habitat and availability of food. The monkey is a highly selective feeder, so damage to its habitat seriously impacts the species

Often when when talking about leftist fiction, it is in relation to speculative science fiction.I'd like to have a thread to discuss not only fantasy with leftist themes, but fantasy in general.So, read any good fantasy recently?

>Most wizards also don't seem to have a deep understanding of magic and how it works, but just say the words and do the gestures to make stuff happen, so their understanding of magic isn't scientific at all really.
Is it even possible to write a universe in which magic can be studied and explained scientifically?


It would just be medieval sci-fi then.
Which would be a cool as shit concept.


I guess the best way would be to make your own fictional cultures from scratch as realistically as possible. I imagine that it would take an immense amount of effort though.


Sorry, meant for >>4298

>he is unironically doing gods work with helping losers get on their feet
Most of his useful advice is the same shit you'd find in any self-help book, I'm not exaggerating. The difference is he dresses it up in references to philosophy and positive psychology so people who think they're above self-help books think they're engaging in something deeper and more intellectual instead, and of course, he makes sure to tie self-improvement to right-wing politics in a way that seems inextricable to his listeners. No, he is unironically doing terrible work and it's worth attempting to discredit him whenever possible (which needless to say, this comic does not do).
>Sure, it is, but isn't it better for pathetic losers to be pathetically brought back into actual society in a cringey way, rather than to let them wallow in their failure and ruin their lives?
Yes, I agree. These people need help. But we shouldn't be convinced that the only useful help they can get is also one that indoctrinates them into conservatism.


It’s such a terrible target.
JBP is too limpwristed to go full red skull.
If you’re going to attempt to give the red skull a modern spin, at least make him one of those deranged youtube personalities that mask their views like Stefan Molyneux.


You know what’s fucking annoying about Ta Nahisi Coates?
His dad was a black panther but chose to go full lib because he thought his views were flawed.
The man is aware of socialist theory but chooses not follow it out of knee jerk cynicism.


Libs are deliberately hyping up right-wingers, while quietly censoring left-wingers in the background.


are there any left wing comic artists left to censor in these publication

Yeah,except the Borg wouldn't do that. They're drowning in their own ideology. Perfection or bust. And as >>15077 brought up, they tend to have significant Achilles' Heels that they aren't able to find due to their single mindedness. In all fairness though, that computer virus was from about 50 years in the future.
Narnia would win if they have Aslan, since he has the same level of power as the God of Abrahamic faiths.

Who cares. Headcanon is best canon. It’s not like the new Disney’s “lore” is anymore cohesive. If anything it’s an even bigger jumbled mess than the expanded universe.

<The Planetary Assimilation Probe is a type of Borg frigate. As its name implies, it is designed to land on a planetary surface and release nanoprobes into the atmosphere that assimilate all life forms on the planet.
6 of 12 scrap the planetary assimilation frigate it's too imperfect. Send millions of drones and make them chase after people on foot to stab them in the neck with tubes. Perfection achieved.


So now nanoprobes can be aerosolized and inhaled? What even bother with ship boarding?

Kane quite literally did nothing wrong.
Look at where Tiberium research was in C&C Renegade, Dr. Petrova is literally a superhuman powered by tiberium, and as of Tiberian Sun they're attempting to deploy the World Altering Missile to change literally everyone so that they're all incredibly powerful and capable of easily fighting off the Scrin harvesting team and hijacking their ships, which was supposed to become Command and Conquer's version of the Golden Path as humanity is forced to abandon its singular planet it resides on to begin taking the entire galaxy.

How do I grow weed, do I need a specific kind soil, can I grow some on a normal pot that I can put by the window? How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool? How much sunlight does it need? How much watering?


>How do I grow weed
pretty easy, also ton of resources available
>need a specific kind soil
not really, marijuana is basically weeds (the kind you have to remove from your vegetable garden), it grow pretty easily. A better soil will still give better result ofc.
>can I grow some on a normal pot that I can put by the window
I mean, sure, but dont expect a crazy productivity
> How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool?
plenty of resources for this too, but first let me tell you, the leaf is not what you wanna smoke, its the buds (of unfertilized female)
the first step will be drying them
>How much sunlight does it need
>How much watering?
dude, just go search for a tutorial, it's really not that hard and I wont spoonfeed you anything else

This book is from the creator of Youjo Senki about trying to keep Yugoslavia together. I know Yugoslavia isn't really socialist but from the point of view of the author I feel it is and wonder how he chose to write about it considering the popularity of his other work among the right. Would be cool if someone translated it (I could rip the book for them if they are unable).

Anyway, general socialist fiction thread!

the "remake" sucks balls, don't bother with it


I like Alberto Breccia's art.


It sacrifices content for form, it's cool that every panel looks like an expressionist painting but they crammed the 360+ pages of story in the original into like 50 in the remake (understandable since the publication got cancelled due to pissing off the government and the writer being kidnapped not long after) IMO you should only read it if you really liked the original and want to see an alternate take on it.


Ok, this was pretty cool. Some parts were questionable, like seemingly endless supply of wholecloth rubber and scuba masks on this guy's attic, but I've got a lot more invested reading this than most media I've consumed recently.


I know this is a long shot but on a stream from a while ago now Haz was talking about some Hungarian socialist realism novel I can’t remember the name of anymore that sounded interesting. Does anyone remember what it was called?

Preferably originals, but edits are welcome too.

I wouldn't call them 'political cartoons' as much as political statements in cartoon, but is Bill Watterson a socialist, or a cryptosocialist? There's some clear anticapitalist venting (can't upload examples right now, but Calvin's dad really wants those Cuban supermarkets https://www.rat.at/comic/2015-09-24/011-Calvin_And_Hobbes_2015-09-24.1.gif )


Bill Watterson definitely recognizes the sad realities of capitalism, but only ever in a jaded way. hell of a dark thinker considering the lightness of his medium. I don't know if that's "cryptosocialism" so much as it's the vague and ill-defined anticapitalism that is typical of many on the lower rungs of the petty-bourgeoisie.


How quickly anarkiddies out themselves as liberals.
