why is this thread saged, its a legitimate topic of discussion. The NU-jannies are really banhappy.


It's an /isg/ topic, at least in presentation. I think there's a legitimate discussion to be had about the layoffs, but starting it off with redditism filled meltdown from someone that doesn't know what a PMC is doesn't seem like a good foundation for such discussion.

People will source to marx, not to agree with him but to say "marx agreed with me so Im right" like tell why was marx/Lenin/etc right? (Don't tell me rn I know y) like the fact the term revisionism even exists as accusation is dumb (not to endorse things that are called revisionist). Marx isnt infallible

>posting the exact quote with the logical reasoning of marx in a debate/discussion is the same as quoting muh religious book
>its cultish to trust the reasoning of the founder of your political philosophy rather than some random moron on an imageboard, and looking up what he thought on a matter and his arguments for it is akin to religion
nice strawman fucktard


it's amazing the insane things people will say when you put completely different words in their mouths.


Marx changed his opinion on a bunch of stuff. So merely quoting him is not doing justice to the development of thought nor the reasoning that led Marx to the conclusion being quoted. Conclusions without the context are useless.


i don't think i've even seen this happen
so counterpoint: why do people cite their own feelings like the bible?

Anyways easy solution: argue against the material they cite.

Btw I get the beef with the idea of revisionism, but generally when the word is applied it doesn't mean that someone just disagrees with the holy scripture, it means they've changed course with no reason (which is a very common thing - people get scared/confused/demoralized, and they fall back onto disproved ideas). It's a call for more thorough analysis and critique, it's not a thought stopping mechanism. When people use it as a thought stopping word to protect themselves from criticism just tell them to shove it. It's really not a complex problem. To break it down to its base elements:

Problem: some people are stupid
Solution: tell them to fuck off if they keep pestering without engaging in any real discussion - or just drop your knowledge/critique and fuck off yourself if you're the one pestering and this person wants to be set in their ways

i think this thread is fine here

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


false dichotomy. you can do analysis and also quote someone at the same time. For example the other day I pointed to how systemic homelessness in the USA is a form of social murder and then quoted Engels


I noticed a recent interaction that got me in the mood for a little rambling.

In the /prc/ China general there was someone who posted this link, https://twitter.com/CindyXiaodanYu/status/1597247427781984257?cxt=HHwWgoDQ9dWEyKosAAAA, to a video of protesters in China arguing with someone in a way that could be construed as coming from a pro-communist but anti-CPC tendency. The anonymous arguer says that the protests are sponsored by foreign agents and is replied to saying "what foreign agents?? Marx? Engels? Did foreign agents allow the fire to occur in the tower block? We can't even access the western internet we have no rights!"

Really, it's inconsequential. A group of random men with a megaphone, it's worthless to argue about. What is more important here is the behavior of the person who posted it. The post read "MAOIST WRECKERS BEHIND CHINA PROTESTS," and has the ban message from an admin saying "(astroturf IP) (potentially sussy amogus IP)," and in the replies are these messages which have also been linked to similar sussy IPs and banned -

It's unbelievable that in le West we need to remind "our comrades" that Marx literally advocated for building productive forces. It's in the fucking Communist Manifesto, btw.(I can see you ban evading buddy)

Glory to Mao. Glory to Mao Zedong thought. Glory to the Maoists of China and May they take over once more. Glory to the communes, glory to the red brigade. Down with the revisionists.(ban evading astroturf)

Notice the switching between differing tenancies wrapped in absurd flavored, cultish rhetoric. There are only two possibilities for what this person is; either a "glowie" or an anonymous hobbyist troll, and in that second possibility we could consider it a piece of art that draws to attention a potent astroturfing tactic that we've seen used before - the creating of cultist fringe tendencies within the communist movement that from a new reader gives off an air of insanity, of cultish frothing, spewing terms from marxist theory six per sentence whilst creating internal divisions within the communist community to generate internal battles between groups of people who, even though having differing opinions on what is "good or bad," still agree on the materialist analysis of what is going on in the real world.

>Everything you have ever said has been generated from everything you've ever heard. When you are around people you begin to have their style of speech and ideas slowly encroach into your own via human instinct. You are not immune from these people. Look what happened with the turncoats who ran off to LARP with Haz.
The way it usually works, it's to get people to say and do things on their own initiative. Like "you know those guys over there, they're not real communists, they're shitlibs LARPing as communists… so when you go hang out with them, tell us everything you're hearing… you know… because you're such a good communist."


At first glance it looked kinda glowish but it's not feds, it's just this autistic neet man child that spends most of his life trying to spam sites including ours.


We must reprogram him with communist truth then


idgaf what he does with his time. However let this serve as a learning opportunity: The internet is not real life kids. Leftypol doesn't really matter. None of this really matters. Go enjoy life and organize your community face to face. You only get one life guys : )

Why is the email box now a dropdown menu with a SINGLE option? Either make it a checkbox or add a noko and noko+sage option, please.


think it'll be expanded


Posting in a thread already leaves you on that thread so what would be the purpose in noko?


where'd the idea come from anyway
not saying i oppose it, but now i can't leave hidden messages in the e-mail field anymore. (i wonder if anyone ever saw them.)


Fuck off retard, your shitty noko shit is useless and you aren't cool for knowing about it. This isn't 2004 anymore, you aren't sent back to the front page anymore when you reply to a thread.


how these things work:
>people bring thing up in meta or somewhere
>mod sees it
>maybe discuss with 1 or 2 other mods about it
>wait a bit
>authoritatively say "devs, we need this change!"
>devs implement change how they see fit without question because its relatively small
>you are here

mods are pic related


reality is predictable and boring - some mods are more right-wing, and some more left-wing (as socialists). There's a variety of opinions that get through, and mods moderate individually (which honestly probably leads to higher rates of deletions than if there was votes or smth, but that wouldnt be possible for hopefully obvious reasons)
so there u go, the simple banality of it.


>hopefully obvious reasons
>talking about practicality to the eternally dissatisfied
another pet theory of mine, these people are so angry bc they don't understand reality


>Nooo dugin is fascist because he just is okay

Can you prune every thread on the slower boards that hasn't been bumped for a month? They're like graveyards


Uh and why would we do that? How would that even help anyway?




This site needs a dedicated archive like 4plebs. I've been saying it for years.


<Keep thread
>Someone wants to talk about thing
>Thread exists, can easily talk about thing

<Cull thread

>Someone wants to talk about thing

I don't think any utility can be found in adding gasoline to an already burning Library of Alexandria.


Would be nice sure but who is going to set it up?

ITT retrieve old and currently-missing /leftypol/ flags that would be good to add back.
I found the Technocrat and snibetti snab flags. I know the Anarcho-Transhumanism flag is missing and I want to find it and have it added back if possible (t. anarcho transhumanist anon). Pics related

P.S. the "Athiesm" flag is misspelled, it's spelled Atheism.

Ok took off a line on the top bun and put some shading on the patty.

Are you the same person as this? >>23828
No way, right?

I tested taking out the top lettuce since it's so small, I thought it might look clearer.


File: 1669688537789.png (2.09 KB, 20x16, ClipboardImage.png)

Note, you have to click the image to look at it uncompressed.

Now tried reducing the top lettuce instead. I think the red is too bright in this one >>23837

Just ideas. I don't even have a proper image editor, it's really hard to edit pixels.


File: 1669691900573.png (824 B, 20x16, burger.png)

added some quick shading


Looks amazing too me. Good job.
