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.

>And, on top of that, it's basically a land of snitches and might be the closest thing to a POLICE STATE in the core of Europe. There are quite a lot of rules. Don't even think of using the washing machine to do laundry on Sunday or you might get a visit from the police as working on Sunday is against Swiss law and that falls under the work prohibition, too. And your neighbors might be the ones who called them because every Swiss is an instinctive policeman or even a spy.

Nationwide abortion bill would backfire in Canada as it did in the U.S., experts say
If Canada were to give more control to its provinces over abortion, the country would likely see a divide that mimics the States, according to Sonia Lawrence, professor at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
“We would see differences between provinces and we would see really different kinds of political fights, particularly in some of the more conservative provinces,” Lawrence told Global News.
Although abortion is decriminalized in Canada, access can still be difficult and pregnant people are regularly referred to the U.S. for more complex abortions they cannot get here.
“The legal status of abortion is only one part of the picture in terms of the factors that contribute to how accessible abortion or how safe abortion is. And in that sense, when we’re talking about the status of abortion in a given country, it’s not just about the legislative status,” Lara Cousins, women’s rights specialist in sexual and reproductive rights at Oxfam Canada, told Global News.
“The access issue is one that we really need to be doing a lot better on and one in which we still have a far way to go just because we’ve fallen short in terms of really addressing the geographical barriers in relation to abortion access and the funding in relation to abortion access,” she said.
Cousins pointed to provinces like Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, where many abortion providers are located in urban centres while 35 to 40 per cent of the population live in rural communities, according to Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights.

Surprised that no one here talks about Jason Kenney, who is like Ralph Klein. Funny enough, I was speaking to an old lady who lives in the rural areas of Alberta and he reminds her of Klien, she really hates both. She worked as a nurse until Klein laid her off. She hates both the conservatives and Liberals.
If someone like that is very disillusioned about politics, I suspect many more people are.

Pol Pot was only a problem because Kampuchea was a necessary element in the Sino-Soviet split. If Kampuchea had no border problems imagine it becoming a dangerous threat to Thailand and Myanmar.

What is the reason for Singapore's post-colonial success with their capitalist model combined with a lot of government intervention? What differentiates Singapore from other capitalist countries and if Singapore's model is superior, why isn't it adopted by other countries, such as the capitalist ones that praise it?

You fucking idiot, you fucking retard. If anything Malayan socialist/communist movement is a perfect example of democratic centralism at its worst. When the leadership doesn't reflect or enact the will of the membership, due to it being infiltrated by glowies in Malaysia and being created by Rosa-killers in Singapore. VietAnon can talk about how glowies infiltrated and wreck the CPM from within

Pic related was part of the major events that ignited the Singaporean independence movement and already became a known dangerous OG to the British. Harry Lee literally approached him and formed the PAP with him (and other founders), and the bulk of his kakis followed him, with the USC/Fajar Club and the trade unions. But once they helped Harry into government, he constantly sidelined them and didn't allow them into the higher echleon of power. It is also doesn't help that LCS was in jail at that period of time to position himself in a high place in government. Harry became too much of a stooge for British imperialism, but the left wing and bulk of the membership couldn't really stop or slow him down from conducting his own agenda, due to democratic centralism locking the left wingers out. Attempts to wrestle power away from Harry and the moderates eventually escalating to them splitting to form Barisan Sosialis with 70% of the membership. The fact that 70% of the party couldn't move its leaders and hold them accountable is a joke.

And the sad part is, Barisan Sosialis literally replicated the same party structure, which makes them easy targets for Harry and the British. Operation Coldstore arrested and locked up 107 key leaders of Barisan Sosialis and its left wing movements. This severed the head of the Singapore Left, who couldn't operate as swiftly and effectively anymore. It has never recovered since. How or why should the entire movement be dependent on just 107 people?

Even now, when almost all parties here use a party structure similar to PAP's democratic centralism, glowie or idiots still get to infiltrate and wreck from within. The local demsucc party had some dumb bitch not only be elected as MP, but also wrecked the party by getting into a huge scandal and dragging everyone down. Demcen's top down approach has its disadvantages that I am suffering all too well under. I personally prefer Luxemburg over Lenin on the party qPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
