Russian imperialism should be opposed just like American imperialism. Both of them exploit the third world and help maintain corrupt capitalist structures that oppress workers like the regime in Kazakhstan. And China isn't very much different in this regard.

liberal spotted. every single piece of land on earth has been stolen many times, since crimes are committed against individuals and not groups it doesnt make sense to "give it back" if it was stolen more than a lifetime ago (since you can't give it back to dead people). also russian/belarusian/ukrainian are somewhat mutually intelligible and arent all that different languages

A multipolar world is good for leftists. The US is the worst thing for leftists around the world with absolutely no comparison, not even near. Anything that reduces US power is objectively good for all types of leftism around the world. Russian and Chinese growth is exactly that. To oppose it is to oppose leftism.

Neither Russia nor China are imperialist powers in any reasonable sense of the word. Russia's mild militaristic adventures on its own border are not even remotely comparable to even minor European imperialist powers, let alone the colossal, borderline omnipresent influence of the USA, which has 750 foreign military bases in 80 countries, overwhelming dominance of both the IMF and World Bank, economic embargoes on 20 countries, active military interventions in dozens of countries in the past 20 years, and the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world by far.

You're right that America's imperialism is by far the worst, but that doesn't mean Russia and China are innocent. They also want to carve out competing imperial spheres of influence in places like Syria and Kazakhstan that are subject to Russian and Chinese capital interests, although on a lesser scale than the US.

Being good for leftism =/= supporting leftism. Conflicts between great powers actually provide opportunities for leftists to do stuff, meanwhile the current yank world order just means they get to be world police until they collapse or we all die from climate change. If you're a yank, I don't know how you can't see that the conflict with China is the best thing that could have happened to American leftists like you. China has effectively put the US in a position where they have to either continue doing business with China and lose their ability to unilaterally dictate what the world does, thus letting the world pursue socialist projects without a fear of getting Allende'd, or move manufacturing and build infrastructure back home, effectively reversing the effects of neoliberalism and returning the proletariat class back to America and reviving the labor movement, basically making your job as a leftist a breeze. I don't get you "Neither Washington nor Beijing/Moscow" dudes, you can't oppose Russia, China and the US equally when the damage they are doing is nowhere near equal.

Lenin didn't foresee that ultraimperialism has the possibility to emerge if anti-imperialist forces put too much pressure on imperial capital. He was proven wrong by history. Even Stalin after WW2 thought that the imperialists won't stay united. He was hoping that another World War would start, now between the USA and Western Europe. He too was proven very very wrong.

I have read this book multiple times and nowhere does it support that "a multi-polar world is good for leftists". It might be a good idea to read it yourself, or present a quote that you think says this.
It's pretty clear that Lenin states that a multipolar world is a deterministic outcome of imperialism, as a counter to the incorrect idea of the possiblity "superimperialism".
Just fyi Lenin literally was a proponent of revolutionary defeatism, quite contrary with "supporting the weaker imperealist powers".
You are not in any way holding an "orthodox Marxist" or "Marxist-Leninist" stance, you're just posting drivel in support of a bourgeois state so as to go against "superimperealism" which Lenin literally states is not something that CAN happen in Late Capitalism. Perhaps actually read the books you tell people to read, lib.

I'm opposed to any conflict with China. Seriously, fuck the military industrial complex and their thirst for war. But that doesn't mean I'm going to go ahead and start praising China as a model for leftists, which they're clearly not. The proletariat are also exploited in modern day capitalist China (read about suicide nets) and they haven't done anything to help spread socialism/communism. Instead they have economically buddied up with extremely corrupt capitalist governments like Kazakhstan and the UAE where workers get shit on and have had their own corporations profit from it. So yes, I'm "neither Washington nor Beijing" for good reason. I don't pick sides between competing capitalist powers that are exploiting the planet.

This is just like saying the US is good because it supported Rojava. Realpolitik and geopolitics are not reasons to support an imperealist bourgeois state, according to "orthodox Marxism-Leninism" the only reason to do that is in a war of national independence against imperealist occupiers.
This would be like supporting industrial capital against say finance capital because "industrial capital helps the workers" - it's fine if you want to hold a socdem position, but it's not the "communist" or "ML" position, and definitely not what Lenin supported.

I'm the anon that recommended Lenin's Imperialism. I'm on mobile so forgive my brevity but my basic point is multi-polarity is preferable to American unipolarity as it inevitably forces imperial powers to jostle on the geopolitical stage, thereby chipping away at the capitalist front/hastening their demise and widening potential for socialist revolution either within the imperial powers or possibly abroad. Shit's more complicated than that of course.

Sounds much better than what we have today
Lenin did make a remark (revolutionary defeatism) that people of imperialist nations should do what they can to make their own countries lose wars, no matter who they are fighting, and try to turn them into internal class wars. And many of us are burgers. Now none of us are actually doing anything, but that also goes for the purists who are similarly considering only what movements to argue for or against and are probably not helping the causes they are talking about either. Imperialist wars aren't even fought by very many people these days, just a small class of fighters specialized in futuristic technology, and usually against much poorer people. So there isn't much revolutionary potential. But I think it still does mean that greater powers losing/wasting lots of resources is a good thing, however small.
