Hello leftypol, we noticed an under-appreciation for the theory that upholds our political ideologies: As such, we have decided to revive the reading sticky! This thread will be dedicated to the sharing, discussing, and general banter about various leftist thinkers, theories, and political outlooks.

But, other than that, we believe there are other important reads that must be addressed, especially, for beginners and those just now getting into leftism.

Don't forget to check out >>>/edu/ for more reading and discussion!

If autistic people have more intrinsic motivation to do work than neurotypicals, how would socialism/communism, under a majority autistic population, work out? I tried talking about this on normal 4chan, but there were so many misconception like: "socialism is when the government does stuff" and "plumbers are paid the same as doctors"

He isn't exactly high-functioning due to how much it cripples his capacity to act as a self-sustaining individual.

What’s the point in caring about politics? I just don’t give a shit anymore—I’m done. I am going to stop reading political news from either liberal or leftist sources—it’s all disinformation and there’s no making heads or tails of what is actually the truth. I’m not going to register to vote either—at this point you’re delusional if you think bourgeoisie electorialism works for any purpose. I’m not going to organize—the American Left and American Anarchy are a pathetic and toothless. No revolution is going to save us, and even if one did who is to say that post-revolution America would be any better? If anything, if America collapsed, it’d probably collapse into a MAGA-fueled fascist state.

Post-leftism isn’t it either. I agree with post-leftism and Stirnirite egoism from a logical point of view, but the conclusion of such ideologies is idealistic and unsustainable. According to such theories, true freedom will only be found in egoist anarchy free of fixed ideas such as ideology, state, laws, and the like. Is such a society possible? I say no, it’s as idealistic as the end goal of communism. Post-left anarchists have views in common with anti-civilization positions, but I am vehemently pro-civilization. Reading Desert by Anonymous—wherein the author argues that anarchy will be possible in post-climate collapse deserts—I scoffed. Do these idealistic fools know how arduous and miserable that life would be? I am willing to gander that the majority of post-civilizationists have no idea what it will be like to live without running water, electricity, air conditioning, and the like. All this in mind, I still am an “egoist” in the sense that I believe that egoism is the most logical conclusion out of all the political philosophies I have read, but egoism being the logical conclusion is what leads me to my ultimate nihilism.

I am neither a fascist nor a liberal nor a leftist nor an anarchist nor anything else. I defy Aristotle—I refuse to be a political animal. I don’t know what do with my nihilism—perhaps doing nothing is the answer. At least nothing political.

So my fellow anons, what do you think? Is my thinking flawed? Why should I care about politics? Why do you think the left/anarchism will save us from the clutches of late stage capitalism? Enlighten me; I am genuinely curious as I have completely given up.

Another world is possible. We know that the world wasn't always configured in the way that it has been, and we know that all societal configurations are ultimately temporary. This isn't the end of history. The elites would not fight as hard as they do to control us if their continued rule was a guarantee.

meta-spooked. also idk, some people don't want to live their last days in a post-apocalyptic wasteland

>that society is fucked but you can't do anything about it

unsure how this is a liberal position, but whatever. what's wrong with this view? there have been no efforts to address climate change, and the survival of civilization is probably predicated on a revolution somehow happening in the near future. "incremental progress" is fucking bullshit. it simply isn't happening. unless you are leading a vanguard party then fuck off lol

there are no real contradictions to take advantage of. the first world benefits too much from imperialism that most of the working class are ultimately placated where they are. unless you have an idea on how to get the fucking middle class to participate in violent uprising. voting is clearly useless. the us amongst other countries is a one party shithole. all currents of revolution either get reincorporated into capitalism or the feds spirit you away. socialist states abroad get sanctioned by every country on the planet, routinely threatened with violence, and have the us fund reactionaries to fuck shit up

>change yourself at all from the status quo mold

why would that do anything lol? vapid self-actualization is just a shallow edification which ignores the systematic nature capital

>because politics and how you live your daily life are totally intertwined

as are the laws of physics, but you can't do anything about those. why this means one should chase after facile political change instead of a cynical exploitation of the system is a mystery

I've only briefly looked into that country and I'm surprised by the amount of imperialism tha apart of it, apparently when haitians took over haiti, they also annexed the Dominican republic meaning haitians had control over the largest island(Santa dominica) in the Caribbean and started becoming imperialist shitheads that went on to invade and takeover other parts of the Caribbean by force and at some point tried invading other parts of south america and nearly annexed it all, this was partly a motivator behind why they got sanctioned so many times and why there are so many calls for haiti to disband its military along with where anti haitian sentiment comes from. It's strange to me, you guys got any thoughts on why this had to happen

Yes, pretty much anything that unites more of Latin America and caribbean into a bloc to oppose imperialism. Things like the trading bloc of ALBA or ALBA–TCP, formally the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (Spanish: Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América) or the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America – Peoples' Trade Treaty, needs to be expanded to all of Latin and caribbean Americas.

First world peoples of the imperialist core of Canada and USA must show solitary thought strikes shutting down major industries for the capitalists in their core and demanding on intervention in Latin America and cease funding far right regimes.

ya sorry, I was saying it would have to be more akin to Hugo Chavez style of revolution in modern Haiti instead of the Leninist style due to the material conditions on the ground. So in Haiti, American and Canadian mining interests have huge stakes in Haiti. There would have to be a mass mobilization of society to demand an end to the sham elections in Haiti so a Chavez like figure can get elected and move Haiti out of neolib capitalism.

The Chinese government has certainly been quite bold in some their statements which hasn't sat well with Australians that are already riled up about China, but in short - no, they haven't.
Basically, Australia started blocking Chinese companies (such as Huawei) and increasing tariffs on Chinese imports. By all accounts we're being a patsy for US foreign policy, stirring up shit to keep them happy. Given that China has made Australia very rich through our mineral and coal exports, this is an astounding decision. Every time China has tried to resolve this diplomatically, Australia has accused China of 'bullying' Australia.

one step further. Nearly all white marxist youtubers are petit bougeoise who rely on espousing marxist beliefs to earn a buck. They are enchanted with leftism because its such a deep pool of knowledge and built it into a career. Even more, most socialists/marxists/communists are just edgy upper class white guys trying to be contrarian.

If someone stole maupin's car or if he had to ride a bus full of negros and hispanics, he would become a rightoid.
