Leftypedia lived - Leftypedia lives - Leftypedia will live!

Greetings, comrades. Leftypedia, the radical encyclopedia, should be back in a usable state. We have more moderators, which will help with spam from now on, and images are slowly being repopulated for your viewing pleasure. The new domain has been up and running for a while at https://wiki.leftypol.org, and we've imported the vast majority of content that was on the old site while adding a lot of new stuff. I hope that Anons can come back and fill in any content that was lost.

For those unaware, Leftypedia is an original /leftypol/ project dedicated to combating the disinformation of mainstream media and academic sources, as well as discussing leftist history, theory, and practice from a multi-sectarian viewpoint. We welcome additions from different leftist perspectives provided that they are properly sourced and well argued. In addition, we maintain a separate space, tentatively titled "Essays", for more subjective or polemic work.

The original thread is here: >>>/edu/3780

I've been away for a while, but here's some new stuff:

"The term Dark Ages in its modern usage properly refers to the relative paucity of written records and histories during the Early Middle Ages. In English history, for example, the era of Germanic colonization is a mostly unknown, or "dark", period in history; such gaps in history also occur in Byzantine records and elsewhere. This darkness is even more evident when studying the histories of Southern and Eastern European languages such as Albanian, not found in writing until 1462, and Romanian, not attested until 1521."

"Classical society reached its zenith with the Roman Empire, which brought vast expanses of modern Europe, Africa, and Asia into one polity, taking its cultural, technological, and economic forms with it. The empire spanned 5 million km2 (1.9 million mi2) at its height in 117 AD. During the third century AD, the empire entered a period of sharp economic and political crisis which ended only with the centralizing reforms of emperor Diocletian (r. 284-305). The contradictions and struggles of maintaining such a large area, compounded by the threat of tribal groups from the North and East, forced Diocletian to significantly transform the Roman imperial system, including by revolutionary new forms of military organization, a revised taxation system, and eventually, an administrative division of the Empire into East and West. In the 5th century, the Western half faced renewed crisis and eventual collapse into regional states, while the Eastern Empire continued to exist for centuries."

"'And while professors thus disagree, the ideas that there is a necessary conflict between capital and labor, that machinery is an evil, that competition must be restrained and interest abolished, that wealth may be created by the issue of money, that it is the duty of government to furnish capital or to furnish work, are rapidly making way among the great body of the people, who keenly feel a hurt and are sharply conscious of a wrong. Such ideas, which bring great masses of men, the repositories of ultimate political power, under the leadership of charlatans and demagogues, are fraught Post too long.

I need input on where to take "Views of Karl Marx on Jews". I only created it as somewhere for Jack Barn (no longer very active) to put his whining (see >>1634270), but he never took me up on it. I had hoped it could become a page for acknowledging the attacks on Marx with a balanced discussion - an inoculation, if you like.

Should it be (a) turned into a large quote mine, (b) written as a discussion in paragraph form with citations (i.e. "he also made some statements about Lassalle[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]")… or simply deleted?

Def agree with this. Feels like ML has been dead since 91, oh and don't forget the greatest culprit of them all, still banning communism since 1966. Iykyk. As for that country's politics, I don't give a literal fuck. Let them clown while we thrive, let them shit on each other while we slowly wait for them to die and rebuild this country.

>Federal prosecutors in New York on Wednesday said they charged a Japanese Yakuza leader with conspiring to traffic nuclear materials from Burma to other countries in the belief that they would be used by Iran to make a nuclear weapon.

>The accused gangster, Takeshi Ebisawa, “and his confederates showed samples of nuclear materials in Thailand” to an undercover agent from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration who was posing as a narcotics and weapons trafficker with access to an Iranian general, prosecutors said.

>“With the assistance of Thai authorities, the nuclear samples were seized and subsequently transferred to the custody of U.S. law enforcement,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan said in a statement announcing a superseding indictment against Ebisawa and another man.

>“A U.S. nuclear forensic laboratory later analyzed the samples and confirmed that the samples contain uranium and weapons-grade plutonium,” the statement said.

The indictment says that in September 2020, Ebisawa emailed the undercover DEA agent a letter in the name of a mining company offering to sell 50 metric tons of uranium and thorium for $6.85 million.
I mean are the "left" truly left? Like in malay the left is just left of islamic fundamentalism and is still hilariously homophobic with anwar being its godhead. The "left" in Thailand are just thaksin's lil cuckfund. Indonesia is just fucked with neo soekarnoites being completely defanged. Singapore will never leave the Lee family dynasty. And Cambodia is just a centrist colony due to chinese influence.

What should I do?

But I wanna convince people to be communists

I don't even care what tendency, they can write off the USSR if they want but just not be like 'capitalism is the only option because Stalin'

That is really stupid my dude. Just go out and meet people. Meet a shallow person? Find a better one. There are plenty of people out there who do not look at it that way, most people don't.

You are getting mad at spectacle my dude.


get a grip


political economy of the sign uygha. people don't just consume objects for their use value but their sign value. incels attribute symbolic capital to sex but lack the social capital to purchase it. they're like the envious kid who hates the popular kids at school but wants to be exactly like them and turns into a resentful greedy little shit. in their case, blaming normies and women for their problems. its the transformation of sex into a commodity and a spectacle that enabled this in the first place. incels want a dream fed to them by hollywood and internet porn. thirsting after the hyperreal simulacra and misogyny is their way of coping the fact they can't obtain this idealistic fantasy they've been fed by the culture industry. incels are cybernetic mommy milkers dependent on the porn being drip fed to them via smartphone. fragile creatures of a dystopian techno capitalism.

I refuse to go outside. i have agoraphobia. outside scares me. i only go out on weekdays when most people are at work to a local park where theres lots of green space and few people.

They get away with it since 48, that's why

A tendência é que países adotem uma "cesta de moedas", o Egito acabou de fazer isso e ninguém deu bola. A Argentina é um ponto fora da curva.



Racista? Não existe gente mais racista no mundo do que judeu, os únicos no mundo com literalmente um etnoestado, no Brasil inclusive é uma gente totalmente detestável, a maioria são burgueses e alguns pequenos burgueses, e são o pior tipo de escória reacionária imaginável, são eles que financiaram Bolsonaro, MBL e toda essa direita nojenta que temos hoje, são eles que estão por trás do astroturf neopentecostal para angariar apoio de imbecis, equinos bípedes que literalmente os adoram como deuses pq uma entidade do deserto os escolheu ou algo do tipo.

E não, não possui nada a ver com política, a questão é que o regime sionista é um estado assentador colonial genocida europeu, é o ocidente apoiando "os seus" contra os "bárbaros do deserto", e não, branco não odeia judeu mais, pelo contrário, são vistos como brancos, branco odeia preto, árabe, chinês, ameríndio…

O governo sionista só esbraveja contra o Irã, sabe que se tentassem algo seriam dizimados mesmo com todo apoio do complexo militar ianque, e o Líbano não é a Palestina, eles podem e conseguem resistir a agressões sionista


>tldr; o lobby sionista existe, mas ele não compra os interesses dos EUA.

Você é LITERALMENTE obrigado a beijar a mão de um velhote judeu asqueroso da AIPAC para sequer poder se candidatar a qualquer cargo público nos EUA, o Brasil estava chegando perto disso com a escória direitista no poder


Detesto judeus pelos mesmos motivos que detesto reacionários, burgueses, racistas, colonialistas, /pol/ só usa judeu de bode expiatório porque ideologicamente são idênticos


Far left parties always did the weeding-out, they just don't give it a false veneer of objectivity. The bigger, center-left parties, however, have none of this and are indeed vulnerable.

Not really cults of personality nowadays (save for Bozo, at least; he, or rather his handlers, definitely foster a cult centered around him), more like mob bosses who represent various specific interests like >>1768877 said. Tho the smaller parties, perhaps due to their smaller size, do tend to be run a specific individual. Owning a legally recognized party is great business, especially since the process to create one became harder a decade or two ago.

Lula não é trouxa a esse ponto. Além disso, o dólar está em decadência, o que >>1768962 disse seria muito mais provável, mas muito dificilmente também ocorrerá num país das nossas dimensões.



Por que esse medo?
>"cesta de moedas"
Isso seria adotar várias moedas ao invés de só uma?

Reminds me of someone…


>muh tax brackets
uygha I don't care about what the legalese is, I'm telling you how it is in practice. I know a lot of people with high gross income… and they live in hovels and have barely anything in their savings because between taxes, absurd rent and necessary spending for food, gas and so on, they barely have enough to put away.
>Leaving 30k from take-home pay.
If you want a 1-room studio apartment yeah, its 2K a month. Which isn't exactly an ideal option, especially since you'd THINK that 75K a year would let you at least get a decent sized actual apartment, and not some college-dorm type shit. Speaking of which, unless you're in Federal Housing (which requires you to be below the poverty line) the electricity and heating bills you have to pay independently. Furthermore if your gross is 75K about 18-19K is paid in taxes, cutting that 30K into 11K a year, or about 900~ bucks a month for spending on commuter expenses (60 dollars a week), food (120-150 dollars for a week of food) and so on. Thus per month you'd be saving a few hundred dollars at best if you 'tighten your belt' for a bit.

The far-right is generally characterised by leftists as pseudo-intellectual, backward, and immoral, primarily due to it's positions with regard to racial differences among human beings and it's general advocacy of closed border policies to both retain a homogeneous white country and minimise criminal activity.

It tends to prescribe these measures in responses to large influxes of people that are overwhelmingly overrepresented in crime with cultures that are seen as being incompatible with those of the west and/or as having a detrimental influence on the overall state of the western world.

The left tends to counter these claims with two main arguments of which all other arguments are effectively variations.

These being;

1. An appeal to modern scientific consensus which (according to them) argues that all differences in racial behaviour are not so much genetic in nature but rather socioeconomic.

2 An appeal to morality that argues that racial discrimination is wrong due to this form of generalisation harming individual people that fall outside the norms of their group.

Yet, none of these arguments discredit the efficacy of a racial worldview in creating stable and safe societies and can easily be refuted by pointing out the following.

Assuming that the left is, in fact, right about all behaviour being driven by socioeconomic factors, this doesn't make any difference with regard to mass migration to the west being mainly comprised of people with notoriously bad socioeconomic backgrounds, and any open border policy that doesn't primarily filter subequatorial populations out of the mix will therefore inevitably contribute to massive increases in violent crime the more the demographic composition of white countries changes into those of Africans, Mexicans, South-Americans, Arabs, Pakistanis, and so forth.

It would unironically solve many issues in our society. Incel culture disappears because the other sex gets demystified, equal punishments for both sexes for the same crime, about a dozen culture war talking points disappear and people have to focus on real issues.


I aree I just think it's funny to try to forcibly desegregate bathrooms by gender.


incel culture will continue to exist until you reduce the number of male children born or state-mandated transitioning or castration of undesireable males.


being forced to shit in the same bathroom from childhood would go a long way for gender relations. i will make you politely ignore the sound of stacy farting in the next stall if i need to do it at gunpoint, and you WILL put the seat down and make sure its clean


if people were properly socialized and had both free time and places to spend free time in a community, people would hang out and fuck instead of hating women and/or writing smut about cartoons to cope with not getting laid
