I've been rereading Lenin's What is to be done, Where to start and Letter to a comrade and it got me thinking. How many existing socialist organizations actually try applying the rational organizational kernel cleaned from autocratic circumstances Lenin posits in the texts? By that I mean: how many organizations actually try establishing a unified organ whose sole purpose is to connect all these disperse organizations and fights?

Setting up a server whose only purpose is to host an email service which informs everyone of existing sturggles and give a clear, broad picture of the movement? It is no secret that most leftist organizations are sects - kruzhoks. Even if it comes to cops busting this set up, you just need a cheap PC to set up another.

Imagine getting a weekly update what is happening in your country when it comes to leftist sturggles from people actually struggling. Imagine the theoretical and tactical texts suited from local conditions that could develop from this broad and encompassing picture of the struggle.

Why hasn't this been done?

Lets assume that this has not been tried before. How much resources and personel would be needed to do this "Iskra for the 21st century"? Like, as you implied, it would only be needed a single "cheap PC" to do it, and i assume a single person. What is stopping you, OP, of doing this Iskra thing yourself?

I feel like there's probably a lot of difference between the role of the Sao Paolo forum and the role of a communications hub like Iskra.

Thank you. Leftoids think communism is about handing useless pamphlets about whatever stupid sect they belong to to all workers instead of unifying the proletariat in their struggle.

unions already have their own newspapers. what you propose also has the problem of providing enough news, and of not providing too much news. that is, you inevitably have to start selecting what to report on

So, what, exactly?
Like
>Mail server
>Give keys to trusted orgs to be able to post their weekly shit with a geolocation
>Mail the server with one or a few geolocations and a radius from which you want updates
>Weekly mail collection
?
This is rather simple to do, you just need a way to do some sort of moderation.

(Like, on the technical end, its piss fucking easy to implement a simple info forwarding mail list. The hard part is actually making it qualatively and preventing it from becoming useless by being flooded with useless spam from retarded cults or rogue individuals. And correct me if I'm wrong, but Iskra was more than just a pass-through means for other peoples articles and information)
