Leftypedia lived - Leftypedia lives - Leftypedia will live!

Greetings, comrades. Leftypedia, the radical encyclopedia, should be back in a usable state. We have more moderators, which will help with spam from now on, and images are slowly being repopulated for your viewing pleasure. The new domain has been up and running for a while at https://wiki.leftypol.org, and we've imported the vast majority of content that was on the old site while adding a lot of new stuff. I hope that Anons can come back and fill in any content that was lost.

For those unaware, Leftypedia is an original /leftypol/ project dedicated to combating the disinformation of mainstream media and academic sources, as well as discussing leftist history, theory, and practice from a multi-sectarian viewpoint. We welcome additions from different leftist perspectives provided that they are properly sourced and well argued. In addition, we maintain a separate space, tentatively titled "Essays", for more subjective or polemic work.

The original thread is here: >>>/edu/3780

Hello folks, I was hoping someone could give me some decent literature on the Babiy Yar massacre in English, I wish to send it to a friend for them to study. It's hard to find anything non-Russian on the subject that doesn't insert anti-communist drivel into it and unfortunately, unlike myself, she cannot read Russian. Help a comrade out.

Why are "developing countries" and racial/religious minorities in western nations so much more "socially conservative" i.e. pro religion, in-group tribalism ( >>1844601 ), anti-lgbt, patriarchy, etc. than western societies.

And isn't this used by both western right wingers and islamists for example?

What is being "pinkwashed"?

In the UK the leader of the cultural far right has amassed under Douglas Murray, a neocon zionist homosexual who openly states his "opposition to Islam is because they want to put me in prison"

So what is being "pinkwashed" - Murray (and rest of the LGBTs) are acutely aware their identity is intimately tied to the British State and NATO imperialism.
Why would imperialism need to pinkwash anything… when it's in face become a core pillar of imperialism?


Do you have a theory for why white socialists like you and white unions typically chose racial chauvinism and solidarity with white capitalist owners over solidarity with black proles, or were us stupid nighurs supposed to use our magical negro powers to get all-white unions to side with us over Jim Crow, capitalists, and the Klan?


I know, maybe we should have lynched ourselves so we wouldn’t be scabs to honkie unions that denied our entry when they went on strike?


Maybe because they’ve seen what Atlanticist anti-culture has done to nations it infects and don’t want it to take root in their own communities? Maybe because liberalism is blatantly a tool of western colonialism and imperialism?

ya'll motherfuckers say "it's too early for PPW, think about the optics!" well I say 'really' because I don't see any other groups out there engaging in confrontation with the forces of my county.

Explain to us how PPW is going to be a tactic than can be applied by anyone not living in Yemen or Palestine ATM. Lets go with some variety of examples: Argentina, Germany, South Africa, India.

Hard mode: Don't repeat the line "lazy westoids wants xyz group to do all the work", that is actually what you seem to be advocating, a lazy fucks position of cheering on third world revolutions on the edges, talking themselves into inaction because "nothing can be done where I live", hoping the third world proletariat saves you. Wake up. China, Vietnam, Laos, aren't going to save you, or any of us. So explain how your beloved PPW is going to save people living in those countries I listed if you claim its a universal strategy.


Beneficial to who?
The fascist modi government who wages war against maoists?
Or the fascist filipnes government who wages war against maoists?


Your frustration seem to hinge on the unfounded misinterpretation that I ever advocated for the universality of PPW, which is especially confusing considering I only ever spoke of India or Philippines, neither of which have overcome semi-feudal neo-colonial status.
We are speaking in English on a largely English-speaking communist imageboard and so your example countries are not relevant.
>Wake up. China, Vietnam, Laos, aren't going to save you
Never said this and never believed this.

Also look at the OP again. They never claimed that PPW was universal either, and
> I don't see any other groups out there engaging in confrontation with the forces of my county.
is open to interpretation - it just says MLMs are on the forefront in their country.


To the communist movements there obviously. Is no anon able to argue without attacking strawmans here anymore?


>We are speaking in English on a largely English-speaking communist imageboard and so your example countries are not relevant.
What the fuck are you talking about, you dumb yank? Do you think anyone who speaks english only live in the english sphere or something? Answer the fucking question and stop backtracking. The entire thread is about how PPW isnt being waged in countries like the USA despite it being supporsedly the god given tactict that has a bazillion percent succesrate.

Maybe make more substantiated statements than "move to <non communist poorish country>". Explain how a high education is going to benefit the maoists in India and the Philipines or how its going to benefit the MLs in india. Because it just sounds like BRICS developmentalist nationalism otherwise.

post instances of Wikipedia glowing, that is WP displaying blatant US/NATO propaganda or disinformation as facts
discuss ways of making WP glow less, including sharing sources that counter the glow. meta studies by reliable institutions are best
what to do if you discover radioactive material on WP:
>do NOT edit without logging in. otherwise your IP will be displayed. IP edits are viewed with more suspicion by editors. VPN or Tor IPs even more so
>DO register an account
>do NOT register more than one account per IP. sockpuppetry is not difficult to detect
>DO edit more articles than just those that glow. this helps build good reputation
>DO complain loudly on Talk pages. some articles are restricted, but Talk pages generally are not
>DO familiarize yourself with WP's bureaucracy. lib editors love referring to WP:OR, WP:SYNTH and similar to try and shut down discussion
WP editors are autistic, but not as autistic as the average poster here is. dedicated comrades can de-glow pages given sufficient numbers and patience

To continue the trend of Wikipedia admitting open-secrets, here's a screenshot from the Angolan civil war page ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angolan_Civil_War ) basically admitting that they used Hollywood as propaganda. Here's the link to that Jack Abramoff guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Abramoff

Also, I don't know if this counts, but it seems that on the history page of The People's Republic of Mozambique ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People%27s_Republic_of_Mozambique ), they keep using a source by João Cabrita, which was published by these guys: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palgrave_Macmillan
Is João Cabrita the Robert Conquest of Mozambique?

This thread is dedicated to our accomplishment of having broken the upper limit of sea surface temperature and the lower limit of antarctic sea ice amount charts this summer, hence ushering our species firmly into the capitalocene. Good job guys! Welcome to the future.

Here's an article about that:

As for the news, there is a drought blocking shipping at the Panama canal, bad wildfires in North America and Greece, persistent heatwaves in eastern Europe and northern Africa, and floods in central and eastern China.

Here's the latest report from the IPCC
<AR6 Synthesis Report Climate Change 2023

The website of NASA about climate is great for getting data and visualizing climate change

>solar remains short of what is needed
people have been saying this for decades already


>They use coal powered stations because it is cheaper
That's nice.
However, did you not write here:
>can only be done by reaching temperatures that renewable inputs can't meet
Who trained you?

man idk how you look at graphs like this and not start dooming holy fuck


China doesn’t use coal because it’s cheaper. Solar is cheaper. That’s why coal use in China peaked this year and it’s installing more new capacity this year than the existing capacity of every other country in the world combined. USians just don’t know anything and operate on massive racist assumptions. The result is them driving up the cost of solar and placing sanctions of clean energy technology and accepting clearly fallacious and politically motivated arguments to support it. They don’t care about climate change. They hate China. Do they even pretend to care about climate anymore lol


Chinese coal peaked this year, not in 2030, and coal plants are never used at capacity there. The confusion of capacity with utilization only happens regarding China. One has to wonder why, at a certain point.
