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!

They're cool with that. They get wet at the idea of having a full auto in their house. I think Switzerland also has lax laws for gun ownership as well as the loaned gun they give you. But like I said with, the loaned gun, they get to have a full auto in the home.

They leave out the fact that the Christian charities don't feed the homeless on Sunday mornings because they're at church. That's why the ACP steps in and feeds them on Sunday mornings because homeless people need to eat regardless of your need to pray.

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.

Agnostic on the actual cause of it, we say that more than anything else the Vietnamese-Cambodian war shows that you have to know the borders of the countries you allegedly control. You have to be diplomatically, geopolitically competent.

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.

Eight miners enter fourth week trapped in flooded Canadian-owned mine in West Africa
Trevali is a global zinc producer with three “revenue-generating” mines in Canada, Burkina Faso and Namibia, according to its website. Mined zinc is often used in the galvanizing process to protect iron and steel from rusting, but can also be used to make bronze or be added to fertilizer.

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.
