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
You can find Leftypedia at: https://wiki.leftypol.org

Same reason why Stalin stole that ice cream, obviously.

Assuming no further input I have been effectively swayed on the issue of Shining Path. Main points that have convinced me so far are:
* Very few parties in Peru actually have the exact same name. "Not to be confused with 'Peruvian Communist Party'" seems fine as solution.
* Leftypedia currently has only this one article for a communist party from Peru, meaning it is the most notable and useful in practical terms
* The name of the article doesn't really matter to me in the long run, this argument has gone on long enough

For a site where we are probably gonna redirect Albania to "People's Socialist Republic of Albania", this shit seems pretty minor to me.

>socialism involves abolition of market with "rational" plan, market is considered in marx-lenin lit to be the root cause of inequality
Yea and my point is that those countries are establishing socialism, but they have not finished the project. The abolition of market (even if you insist is central to socialism) can only happen after you create it via capitalism.


But Lenin (during war communism), Stalin, Maoist China etc. pretty much demolished it. Anyway Xi chan already said "we wont go back to planned economy" so ur point still falls flat either way


All these leaders had to industrialised and introduce capitalism to countries that do not have it.

Even if you firmly thinks Xi is against a planned economy, even he thinks china has not reached socialism and wants to reach it by 2050.


>All these leaders had to industrialised and introduce capitalism to countries that do not have it
Huh ? No, Russia and China were semi-feudal states when they took over, even though they did initiate central planning

>Even if you firmly thinks Xi is against a planned economy, even he thinks china has not reached socialism and wants to reach it by 2050

"Prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious, beautiful, and socialist" China by 2050 is just a codeword for high GDP per capita by 2050. China abandoned socialism a long time ago. They give mouth service to socialism now and then to maintain political stability and keep the population thinking they still have socialism. I can kind of understand why a government would do that for stability

>Even if you firmly thinks Xi is against a planned economy

> he thinks china has not reached socialism and wants to reach it by 2050
Read that again. These two statements contradict each other. Xi and Vice Premier Liu said they would "never return to the planned economy and that's impossible" and not "we will not return to the planned economy just for now". ITS OVER for you fren


same is the case with other aes like Vietnam btw

wef discourse is normalized now sweaty, I'm listening to respectable boomer centrist journalists talking about memetic warfare and limited hagouts over here. The ss nazi that everybody knew was a nazi but nobody knew was a nazi looks like a planned exit strategy for the last major wef puppet now that western liberalism is ogre. The NZ PM, the Scotland PM, next the Canada PM. DeSantis, who the wef lord insisted would win, is also out. Western liberalism will take a hard right turn to protect and conserve what remains of empire as hegemony evaporates. Has this event changed minds in Canada about Ukraine?

Discussion about the Muslim/Arab world, MENA, and it's intersection with the Capitalist/Colonialist west. Muslim resistance in the nations of the West as well. I'm not a Muslim but I've been studying it for years and have an appreciation for it and many of it's 20th and 21st century figures have taken a great deal of their inspiration from Communist thought. I'm studying Arabic at university and would love it if there was a Muslim imageboard but I don't know of such a thing.

The songs of the Islamic State are more beautiful than any other songs that I have heard. (This is not an endorsement of the Islamic State.)


I hope you will get beheaded by a Pakistani salafi immigrant your soon-to-be-shithole western country imported for being against your daughter getting raped by the mullah. Faggot.

There will be no congratulations here on the day of “joining”. They didn't deserve it.


And yes, mobilization in the LDPR began on February 22, 2022! (Almost a year earlier than in all of Russia)

Those mobilized from the LDPR were thrown to slaughter without equipment, ammunition and equipment; they went into battle without any social and other guarantees, as well as salaries (and their salary was 70 thousand rubles per month). There was also no compensation.

Rowing absolutely everyone, crooked, askew, old, young, those who served and those who did not serve, as well as the disabled and crippled.

And now, almost two years later, from the moment the North Military District began, a kind man accepted them into Russia, and they, fed up with injustice and losses, fled in all directions.

And according to the new laws, a tribunal awaits them all for leaving their unit without permission.

So, wait a minute.

None of these suggest Russia is on the offensive after Bakhmut or that artillery isn't doing its job. No analyst is making your claim which is really all that matters here.


We have very little insight into the situation for Russian troops at the front. One thing that Western analysts are exaggerating is the extent (and cost) of Russian counterattacks at the first and second defensive lines, saying that it nullifies the existing fortifications designed to draw the Ukrainians into a defense in depth. That's just wrong. But these counterattacks are noticeably and completely missing from Anglo Z analysis, where spaces like here prefer to think of the fighting as correlating to the few videos that RT puts out where Russians are just chilling and watching Ukrainians blow up rather than a brutal slugging match.

>requisite variety
Stafford Beer did tackle a mismatch from both sides: not just increasing the scope of responses by the org, but also reducing the variety the org encounters. Apolito just says variety good.


variety good, but variety also bad


it's dialectical you see


Yes of course. You want to produce some thingamajing and you poll potential costumers about what they want. You can produce exactly one model and for that you aim for a compromise. But you realize that to produce only one model is a choice, you can also produce a variety of models. To produce a very large variety of models is also a choice, and there are pros and cons to it. On the pro side the specs can get much closer to what this or that customer wants. Except for one thing: cost. If you instead produce only one model, you may have the biggest savings through high-scale production. You can also easily repair broken units by cannibalizing parts. If you produce a large variety all with unique parts that are not exchangeable, repair is much harder. So you produce a moderate variety of models that share some components. Some variety is good because the theoretical maximum of savings through high-scale production require a very stable environment to work out. If you optimize production for a single model and there is a problem with even one of your suppliers you can be in deep shit.
