In any case…

I ran through a search on the totality of MECW (Marx & Engels Collected Works) – the most complete works of the two – and found not a single occurance of them calling themselves "Left". M&E referred to themselves as communists. There's ZERO implication there that communists should self-identify as "Left."

I did the same for Lenin's, Stalin's, and even Kropotkin's, and Bakunin's works, with the same result. Based on this, any anarchist and Leninist who calls himself a "left-winger" is a fucking clown.

Can we face the fact that naming ourselves "lefty"pol was a mistake or do we concede to the so called" Left," riddled with reformists, woke-tards, and anarcho-imperialists?

DAILY REMINDER THAT IF YOU ARE AN ANARCHIS, MARXIST-LENINIST, ETC. YOU ARE NOT "LEFT" – YOU ARE MERELY A FUCKING COMMUNIST.

Unironically WW3, or at least a war of similar scale. Against modern militaries, practically the only way to achieve victory is to have a significant part of the army defect to the revolutionaries, which isn't going to happen in peacetime. There needs to be a mass of conscripts fed up with constant warfare (as we could see during/after the previous world wars, especially the first one).

The far more important questions imo is what happens the day after? This isn't backwards shithole russia in 1917, its no longer enough to seize the telegraph station with some red sailors and the government is yours. Even the bolsheviks in trying to command a far more primitive and less complex state and economy were forced to employ countless tsarist officers and bourgeois experts to achieve anything.
Establishing a DotP and trying build socialism in today's world which certainly provides us with sufficiently developed productive forces, the means of production are here, capitalism's tendency to produce state capitalist monopoly and great standardised infrastructures that Lenin raved about has given us everything we need materially to establish socialism, but we have not the slightest idea how to manage any of it. Do you think that your local communist party, be they an old 'national' communist party or a revolutionary sect of any tendency, if put in charge of the state tomorrow would know the first thing to do with it? Would anyone on /leftypol/?
Of course not, knowing the most fervent self-proclaimed revolutionary communists around, faced with the enormity of the real material work of building socialism they would immediately set about ordering as many executions as possible in the vain hope that blind terror will save them from the consequences of their unpreparedness.
There is a vast public-private bureacracy and managerial strata which runs all the institutions, infrastructure and plans and organises modern society and unless we are ready to near seamlessly replace them at a moments notice (or ready to compromise with them and bring them onside whatever that may mean for the course of our 'revolution') you can kiss any hope for socialism goodbye.
The only solid argument for 'dengism' (and one self-proclaimed dengists and assorted china-shills never bring up) is that china and the CPC are the only ones doing what i think is necessary to build socialism today, which is building *actual* dual power (not mutual aid larp), that is having the party be part of every major enterprise, at every level, forming a sort of shadow cabinet for the whole economy, that will (one hopes) be ready at the crucial moment to step in and seamlessly takeover.

So what does this mean for prospects for revolution outside china (and underdeveloped countries in africa where a bolshevik style coup could still work, maybe), does it mean you should as a coPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

This is a thread only for people who actually do IRL organizing to exchange tactics and ideas. Its time to stop whining about bullshit like Wiccans or shizo pedo rape cult conspiracies, and actually get some actual lessons out of each other, for fucks sake.

Explain your situation, ask a question on what you would like some advice on, and give insight into what you do right now and how successful you are.

Let me start off
>I am the chairman of a local chapter of a socialist nation wide youth org of a european country
>We have, on paper, 90+ youth members in our local chapter
>We have, on paper, 1000+ members nationally
>Recently formed out of a split, still very much in flux
>The real local cadre is around 10-15 people with varying levels of commitment, about 6 people at each weekly or so meeting
>The ideological and practical education of our cadre is low
>Following a broadly orthodox marxist line, as opposed to classical marxist leninist, or maoist, but also containing trotskyites and anarchists

Now the thing I would like your feedback on is explaining how you conduct meetings, how to educate cadre, how to retain cadre, how to ensure people show up, what communist youths are even supposed to do. So let me sketch out what we do now

How the fuck are you going to argue America is the inheritor of Rome’s legacy other than by being the ruling imperialist beast of the world?
American culture, despite being created by European settler colonists, is pretty damned divorced from European society and culture
Remember, even from the beginning America was a bourgeois society; even when half the country was dominated by slavers it was a bourgeois society; it doesn’t have the legacy of rule by the Catholic Church, it doesn’t have a history of domination by a monarchy or a history of a real landed aristocracy

As for China? It’s because polyps, like arguably all people, but especially due to their reactionary ideology, can’t help but to farcically drape the events of the current era in the garb of the past, even if it’s as warped as claiming a global confrontation between two modern powers in a series of much more covert coercions and invasions of other countries is equivalent to a competition between two empires in the Mediterranean thousands of years ago

What’s funny is that, of course, in this scenario America, the thalassocracy, would actually be Carthage and China, the land-based power trying to build up a navy to confront the sea-farer, would be Rome

I'm mostly speaking in terms of culture, which is essentially the main mechanism by which civilizations have a lasting impact, at least on people who have no direct genealogical or institutional continuity with them. Greco-Roman culture and history is widely seen by Westerners as "their" history and most people have a passing familiarity with it, major elements of their culture is widely dispersed among Europeans (e.g. most people have some familiarity with Greco-Roman religion, mythology, and philosophy, Greek and Latin have lasting influences in most European languages). Most Europeans also practice a religion which took its predominant form within the Roman Empire (essentially all Trinitarian Christians should be included here), and live under institutions which consciously draw on Greco-Roman institutuons.

The latest spread of the monkeypox virus has prompted The World Health Organization (WHO) to convene an emergency meeting, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported on Friday. The disease, which is typically confined to forested areas of western and central Africa, has been spreading rapidly in a number of European countries, as well as the US and Australia since early May.

According to the report, high on the meeting’s agenda are the mechanisms behind the virus’ transmission and possible vaccination strategies. Dr Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, is reportedly attending the discussion.

The newspaper claims that the WHO is looking at whether smallpox vaccines could be used effectively to tackle the spread of back to monke.

Meanwhile, the UK government has already ordered additional stocks of the smallpox vaccine, which is being administered to people who may have been exposed to monkeypox, the Telegraph reported. On top of the 5,000 doses the British authorities have on hand at present, an order has been placed for 20,000 more shots, according to the report.

In Africa, reports of the risk of death, if untreated, are as high as 10% to 11% in the Central African clade of monkeypox.[1][11]

Was it a glorious pushback against a western-backed bourgeois counterrevolution, or a suppressive act of social imperialism that extinguished an independent country's genuine attempt at popular socialist reform?
China, Albania, and Romania opposed it and rejected the Brezhnev Doctrine however it is true that liberalization under Perestoika played a large role in socialist collapse. How far would the Prague Spring have gone, how much reform would be "acceptable", and how would such a movement gain popularity if it were strictly bourgeois in nature? If it wasn't bourgeois in nature, what popular reforms were desired in comparison to reforms delivered before the invasion?
Finally, was the installation of Husák the right response, considering both the desires of the people and Marxism-Leninism?

The same argument should be made about Perestroika. The fact that such liberalization movements were able to get positive support should be interpreted as a failure of the Soviet system to prevent the alienation of a considerable amount of its population. Perestroika obviously wasn't the solution, but changes needed to be made to build a more authentic proletarian democracy.

Why do socialist countries always suffer from low fertility rates? Even though they reduce mortality rates by a lot, the low fertility rates impede growth. The DDR literally had less people in 1989 than they did in 1945. I assume it's because of working women not having kids but are there any other reasons?

Russian birthrates and fertility rates dropped naturally at the start of the Soviet era due to increased women's rights and education, legalized abortion, infant mortality rates dropping, new birth control methods, and of course the entry of women's workforce into labor, etc. At the start of the Stalin era, rapid industrialization created labor shortages and the need for higher population growth, so that's why abortion was finally banned.
