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!

Sort of, both Israel and Ukraine function to divide their regions and act as a Western veto on them. Israel vetos Arab nationalism and Ukraine vetos Eurasian integration. Israel is defined by rejecting the presence of Arabs in the middle east, ditto for Ukraine and the presence of Russians in Eastern Europe.

Israel is the linchpin of preserving a colonial order in the middle east, Ukraine is the same but for expanding one.

>Literally every single 'outsider' or partisan tendency in the cultural sphere is at this point just a layer of abstraction meant to filter voots back to the bougie parties.
Yeah lol. Pretty much every ML group also pretty much said to voot for Biden without necessarily saying that, they'd say "defeat Trump." The FRSO did, Chairman Bob did, the CPUSA did it, I'd bet the PSL did but I can't remember. But I'm okay vooting if they just tell me to do it when an election comes around and then I don't have to think about it again because it doesn't take much effort. You don't have to convince me to like them or think they're good or whatever. Sometimes I feel like the black boomer guy, not that I'm wearing the Biden hat, but just trying to work on that carefree 'tude.

Also I do live in an area dominated by Republicans and they suck, and the local Democrats are annoying, I'd rather have the local Dem types on the city council because the Republicans are a bunch of scumbag landlords and realtors. They don't do anything, they just own stuff, they all love the cops, and they all live way on the outskirts of town in gated "communities" which is how the Nazis planned to house their settlers for Generalplan Ost. I might feel differently if I lived in California.

It's not a moral thing or "you're not a real" whatever. I'd rather my energies be spent elsewhere, there's other stuff that you can do which is political. The people who are like HOW DARE YOU DON'T CHU KNOW are taking this bourgie thing more seriously than I think they should, but who cares.

I've never heard him say that. His wife, Anya Parampil, seems like a communist. Was she PSL or something? I dunno. He's definitely engaged with it.

Kinda like Oliver Stone maybe. An interesting thing about him is that his dad was a senior Clinton advisor in the 90s but was kinda edgy about it and lived to fuck over the RePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Your question might at first sight appear to be correct. Actually, it will not stand the slightest criticism. It should be easy to understand that when Lenin says that "Soviet power plus electrification is communism," he does not mean by this that there will be any kind of political power under communism, nor does he mean that if we have seriously set about electrifying the country we have thereby already achieved communism.

>What did Lenin mean to say when making this statement? In my opinion, all he meant to say was that Soviet power alone is not enough for the advance towards communism, that in order to advance towards communism the Soviet power must electrify the country and transfer the entire national economy to large-scale production, and that the Soviet power is prepared to take this course in order to arrive at communism. Lenin's dictum implies nothing more than the readiness of the Soviet power to advance towards communism through electrification.


>We often say that our republic is a socialist one. Does this mean that we have already achieved socialism, done away with classes and abolished the state (for the achievement of socialism implies the withering away of the state)? Or does it mean that classes, the state, and so on, will still exist under socialism? Obviously not. Are we entitled in that case to call our republic a socialist one? Of course, we are. From what standpoint? From the standpoint of our determination and our readiness to achieve socialism, to do away with classes, etc.


>Perhaps, Comrade Kushtysev, you would agree to listen to Lenin's opinion on this point? If so, then listen:


>"No one, I think, in considering the question of the economy of Russia has ever denied its transitional character. Nor, I think has any Communist denied that the term Socialist Soviet Republic signifies the determination of the Soviet power to achieve the transition to socialism, and not at all that the new economic order is a socialist order" (Vol. XXII, p. 513).

China to use Shanghai exchange for yuan energy deals with Gulf nations - Xi

>China's President Xi Jinping said in Riyadh on Friday that China and Gulf nations should make full use of the Shanghai Petroleum and National Gas Exchange as a platform to carry out yuan settlement of oil and gas trade.


>China and states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are natural partners for cooperation, Xi said in a speech at the China-GCC summit.


>"China will continue to import large quantities of crude oil from GCC countries, expand imports of liquefied natural gas, strengthen cooperation in upstream oil and gas development, engineering services, storage, transportation and refining, and make full use of the Shanghai Petroleum and National Gas Exchange as a platform to carry out yuan settlement of oil and gas trade," he said.

They're also de facto banning LGBT because obv. there's no marriage between same sex as well.

Finally they are also banning insulting the president or disagreeing with the government.

Basically, they're going FULL SAUDI

I think Saudi Arabia has been exporting a lot of strict Sunni Islam to other countries and Indonesia is one of most successful case studies.

This is big enough for libs to be aware of this and upset about it, but it's constrained to tutting about how backwards Islam is and tutting about tourists getting in trouble. The collusion of the West in propping up tyrannical right-wing governments in Indonesia is of course totally ignored. Also I'm not sure it was always like this, like one of the things the CIA tried to use to discredit Sukarno was his womanizing but nobody cared because it made him seem cool.

Both Pancasila and the New Order had made the perfect conditions for this to spread in society.

This is probably the most important strike of this decade. On Wednesday Congress is likely to block the strike but if they do it the workers might just strike anyway. Workers have basically no time off and they were offered only one extra day off in the negotiations which most workers find unexceptionable.

No this is really important news, if the strike occurs it could destroy the North American Economy.
If their are picket lines near you you should sow up in solidarity. This winter the weeks will be decades. History is fully alive.

I mean, this will probably spur on a fair few people. The union movement is now in a state of gains, increased activity. They aren't the only workers striking AND, its not the only country its happening in for the same reasons. The media want to act like other things, Ukraine, whose going to be the next president, the fuck ups and simping for red or bloo parties, is the real story.

Actually, the real story is that there is mass upheaval across the west, and after a period of brutal repression, a massive resurgence in leftist politics globally.

I am thirty. Never in my lifetime has there been this much labour activity or talk of unions in the news at all.

We are at the beginning of the beginning. These disputes, disputes of this type, simply aren't going to stop until there is real change. The imperialists have lost the world stage, now they must answer for problems at home. If they intend to continue the sanctions regime and war in Ukraine into the next 5, 10 years, inflation is not going to stop, petrol is not going to get cheaper, bills, rents, are not going to go down. There is literally zero free market imperative for these things. We aren't even a year into Ukraine, things are set to rise still further.

You forget that Biden is highly conservative, and not just any conservative but a Reagan Democrat. Most of the "dark Brandon" shit he's putting his name to he's doing half aware and half awake, it's elder abuse it's what it is. Biden is being run by his majority caucus and administration. Biden perfectly summarizes this administration which has a progressive aura largely dominated by a liberal centrist majority that makes any progressive policy and fart, a deflated mess. We actually are lucky that Biden isn't more aware because if he was he wouldn't have done half the "progressive" shit he seems to have done.
