The song is "Let's do our best!". From what I've heard, it's the best radleft anthem to originate in Japan. It became a popular protest song during the six-million-strong general strike in 1960 opposing the US bases treaty (Anpo). Speaking of which, I'm shocked that general strike isn't better known since it's almost on the scale of France 1968.

Also, I don't have a twitter account, but getting the Natuski Zengakuren meme retweeted by Abroad in Japan could draw attention to leftypol.org. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Excellent article, thanks for sharing. I've always been aware of the popularity of Marxist ideas in Japan, but the language barrier has kept me from exploring them further. I should check out some of the stuff that has been translated recently. I tried to read one of them a year ago, a collection of writings from Tosaka Jun, but honestly it discouraged me. Tosaka had been hyped up as a potential Japanese Lenin had he not died in prison in 1945 - one look at his writings and you'd know that's laughable. I don't know why they thought this guy was a threat, it's all critical theory wank on cultural institutions. Had he survived, he'd be destined for a dry academic career. His work's biggest political impact would be as a theoretical bludgeon for some New Left sect guru to conduct the by-now-predictable "Hegelian philosophy" wave of purges.

Thank you to the glorious tech team for creating this solution of caching the thumbnails locally! This is a good balance between privacy and utility, as users of the site are now able to see the thumbnail of the video without any of your data being sent to Youtube. I hope this satisfies those people who were unhappy with the removal of Youtube embeds and provides security for those users that value their digital independence.

Here's to leftypol.org 's continued progress!

You wake up and there is no more imperialism, but no further immediate changes to the world's political, social, and economic systems are made. All foreign-owned property in the Global South is brought under domestic ownership (either private, cooperative, or state ownership), all foreign interventions in civil conflicts are cancelled, all coup efforts are cancelled, all sanctions are scrapped, and all supranational organizations that favor rich countries are reorganized to provide a fairer balance between the interest of rich countries and poor countries. What changes would we expect to see, both in rich countries and in poor countries? Would the economies of rich countries collapse? Would the economies of poor countries experience unprecedented growth? Or would something else happen?

I need some help. When it comes to unemployment, and welfare and things of the sorts all you ever here is /pol and other conservatards say shit like "Goshdarn naggers, wimenz and non-whites don't work and get all muh hard earned monez." But, is any of that true? And how much does it matter if the govt is pissing away money and resources on far more frivolous shit that reactionaries are eager to support. Last I remember, white americans are actually the bulk of welfare recipients, which I told a pol tard once and they replied per capita. Which, I don't see what difference that makes. Also as black dude in my thirties I've worked my whole adult like, often a lot harder than other people and witnessed plenty of non-whites out pacing and out doing white americans.

Lately on tik tok (i downloaded it after pressure for my sister I am not that Gen z) there is a heavy discussion on whether soviet union was oppressive or even genocidal against Jewish people, now of course i take no claims like that seriously but i am asking here for takes on the issue.
I know the eastern block had antisemitism problems (Poland) but i don't think it spread to the ussr outside of anti religious sentiment

We are running out of time to not end with barbarism (followed by extinction) for this world. Yet, communists are still too irrellevant to do anything against capital. I'm not even a third worldist, since also there communist movements are too weak. Why is there nothing in Africa, the most exploited continent on Earth? India also doesn't look like a coming revolution.
Even looking at history, where communist movements have been much bigger and stronger in the west, they weren't successfull. Now, the ruling bourgeoisie has more means to suppress it with propaganda, historical revisionism, subversion, infiltration, sabotage and direct state violence, while we are smaller and weaker than in the past.
I'm still relatively new to this by just being a zoomer activist for about two years, but I already feel burned out from utter frustration. There was some potential with the climate movement for further radicalisation, but this has also been too small since the beginning and had no significant growth since it started. Corona just basically pushed it into irrelevance, made liberals become full on impossible to radicalise, which proceeded to continue bootlicking the government again and "democracy" to voot problems away. The complete failure of western governments to handle the Corona crisis, has not made socialist radicalisation possible either, since people tend to just become reactionary Covid deniers instead, where law enforcement doesn't prosecute them for breaking the law either, but outright walk with them in support instead (which the latter was to be expected but still).

Maybe, I'm just doomin' like Lenin used to at the beginning of WW1, but I don't see how any coming worsening material conditions for proles could possibly break the majority of them out of their capitalist realism, be it in the imperialist core or in the hyper-exploited world.

This is truly the worst timeline. Are we really doomed?

America has only waged war with substantially weaker countries in far-off lands since the end of WWII, so it doesn't seem likely that this would happen anytime soon. Also, even if it did, there's no guarantee that people would turn to socialism in response.

According to voting into the Constituent Assembly, bolsheviks had around 25% support, coming second behind SRs with around 40% support. While slightly less than 50% of eligible voters casted their votes it still shows that ideas of socialism in Russia was quite the popular one.

If capitalism revolutionized the old way of knowing the world that existed before capitalism then proletarian science will uncover what bourgeois science does not know, therefore is the Big Bang Theory wrong?

Lysenko was ridiculed in the 60's soviet union after normal, scientifically correct agronomy became the norm. We must learn from the past rather than fall into the exact same pitfalls over and over again for ideological "purity" that won't even aid the revolution.
>>154448
We do not need to reinvent the wheel just because the capitalists got to it first. If bourgeoise science and innovation is useful for the worker's state, it can and should be used. If the science is done right, it does not matter who was doing it. That is how science works, it seeks to uncover the truth about the world; things that are true regardless of what material conditions exist behind its discovery.

Truth is something purely bourgeois based on the bourgeois philosophical search for “truth”. Which is a purely ideal end, as idealistic as any bourgeois science or philosophy. Proletarian science and truth is a different truth and science to the bourgeois science, not only quantitatively but qualitatively; there is no similarity between the two. Proletarian science is based on pragmatic simple realities, not bourgeois cosmology or bourgeois physics or bourgeois philosophy. Proletarian pragmatism doesn’t concern itself with complex systems, just simple pragmatic things.
