While not inherently fascist per se, it has elements that appeal to the fascist psyche.


I’m sorry I guess I just think that not actively defending fascist propaganda is an uncontroversial socialist position, but clearly if said propaganda is superficially cute and makes you horny then it’s okay according to leftypol


Bros what are the fascist implications of vid related?


anime is bourgeoisie, not proletariat.


The anime fandom is a victim of actual pedophiles. Anime itself is innocent, but pedophiles take it and put their own sick ideas onto it and then everyone in the fandom is lumped in by guilt by association. Similar to the worst elements of Bronies. We can't cede anime to pedophiles or fascists.

how do people think imageboards are better than social media when not only are they dying but what little userbase is left is mostly retards trying to kill any attempt at discussion and the lack of pseudonyms means you cant filter anything lol


the base determines the superstructure, therefore it is all the mods fault


It's just two retards' back and forth with each other. They should just make their own thread and fuck off


It's not the mods' fault. They made a whole containment board for anime faggotry but the anime fags refuse to be contained.



this happens multiple times a day on leftypol despite consisting of under 20 "regular" users


You mean the format.


/leftypol/ tourism is booming because of all the Palestine shit and chinletjak


there is like 300 different ips per day according to the site


>how do people think imageboards are better than social media when not only are they dying but what little userbase is left is mostly retards trying to kill any attempt at discussion and the lack of pseudonyms means you cant filter anything lol
>,he said in the thread for replying to twitter posts on a whole nother website.


With dynamic IPs and IPv6 I doubt all those IPs belong to different people. Also almost all of the traffic is concentrated in the geopolitical "happening" threads (and coincidentally they're the worst too).


This thread is undoubtedly the worst.


Proportionally, yes. It's less active than those threads I mentioned yet still has constant shitstorms. I don't know why it gets a pass despite being on the main board.


The only reason it's here is because Siberia is a porn board


Even the OP presents the thread as a serious thing yet the posts are consistently low quality. Any attempt of actually discussing social media phenomena gets shut down by a flood of bait.

Why do you think we're all on twitter, fediverse and/or matrix?


Did Caleb delete the Washington monument video? Can't find it no matter what I try. I unironically scanned his entire YouTube and Facebook feeds for the original. I have it downloaded but I need the original page


They're both shit and I'm here reluctantly


>>The Society of the Spectacle (1967) by Guy Debord
This book is so overrated


everything in bourgeois society is bourgeois…


Real schizo hours now.


You're overrated, and that's saying something because no one has anything good to say about you.


Schizo is a glow insult designed against people like me with a creative sense of reality.


Do you prefer the term “reality-capable?”


It was originally called the Internet Trash General. It was created because all these twitterfags were spamming the catalogue with endless threads about e-celeb drama. Then they changed the OP to what it is currently to make them seem self-aware.

You are not kidding.


unfortunately it seems hbomb's new video is not only going to set any understanding of copyright as a tool of capitalism, but an understanding of the labour theory of value back literal decades. lots of reactionary and staunchly liberal rhetoric in it in general, among other things. i hold no love for video 'essayists' but this is still incredibly disappointing and the worse i watch the worse it gets, actually. full on anti-piracy, small business mindset. i won't commentate on it further because i think it's a waste of time but it's just bad. really bad


You're not a revolutionary unless you follow theodore adorno's mantra
In the grand scheme of things, most youtubers are plagiarists in some form or another. Internet historian isn't particularly unique. Twitter libs just dislike him because he has a channer vibe mainly.

Artists are getting proletarian, programmers were always proles. This is why you get so many meme obsessives and other "creative" sorts turning to reaction while programmers are fucking over ad revenue and other sorts of shit.



>right-wing eugene


Programmers are the best example of labour aristocracy around, what the fuck are you talking about you fucking moron. Just because a group of hackers did a cool thing once or twice doesn't somehow absolve the ideological cesspit that is the info tech industry.


Nah. They're just well paid artisans.

>see an Atlus PR account posted this and got reverted a week later
>check replies
<Good I hope they got fired
<Thank god. We can start the healing process now 😭 (and the ritual sacrifice)
<bullying works <3
<that employee got taken out back and shot (good)
People really care more about fictional characters than the livelihood of real people, huh.


I do feel for the person who posted this, but cmon man, you should have known better


yeah, i think the punishment wasn't deserved but like don't just start shotaposting on the company account


theres always been people going "ermm im a Normal persona fan" like there used to be some who considered Persona 1 and 2 to be the only "moral" ones years ago. but now you have people who fervently eat the whole series up while convincing themselves the games arent made for otaku perverts. sad!

idk, i mean its completely in line what atlus licenses, also i dont think they got fired its just internet hyperbole (i hope)


>People really care more about fictional characters than the livelihood of real people, huh.
Something something spectacle, what is fake is real yadda yadda.


>wow how come somebody got fired for openly promoting pedophilia on the company twitter account?
The tweet is literally encouraging pedos to find each other.

File: 1701814608167.jpg (49.52 KB, 708x404, 1680886399188.jpg)


this is what the average person gets injected straight into their veins 24/7


The comments seem like a mixed bag of pro and anti-union sentiment.

I get the feeling that youtube in particular is pretty far-right from what I can tell. A constant drip of anti-woke content mill drivel and drama between ecelebs will create an environment that is actively hostile to the idea of cooperation.


File: 1701817867606.png (281.86 KB, 482x373, 1701655510909.png)

Anyone thinking leftypol or twitter are filled with drama should take a quick glance at a random mastodon/pleroma instance. They're so bad, holy shit.


>The comments seem like a mixed bag of pro and anti-union sentiment.
That actually sounds pretty good for the comments on an Elon Musk video.
