>check the overboard
>the most recently bumped threads are already existing geopolitical general threads
Can't we have a separate board dedicated for this type of stuff, like a /vg/ for geopolitical events and happenings, and then /leftypol/ will be left for left wing discussion and shitposting

Words words fucking words

I agree with the sentiment, but I don't think we should be splitting boards up. I feel like having generals as well as more specialized threads in the same place will keep people engaged in both. Just look at /siberia/ and /lounge/ atm. /lounge/ was supposed to be for the more social topics but is p much DoA, while /siberia/ still has momentum for those kinda threads.

Geopolitical happenings and leftist theory feed into each other. Discussing one without the other is bad, they should be on the same board.

 No.11381

China, CHYNA, CHYYYYNA, Russia, middle east, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, regime, terrorism, color revolution, coup, imperialism, financial aid, capital, capitalism, MIC, Socialism, invasion, occupation.

 No.11382

No, outrage politics and bait taking are the life source of leftypol.

How can you even separate left wing discussions and the current geopolitical situation? Those things are heavily tied together. You can’t talk about theory without the reality of a situation as it is. Without the grounding of geopolitics, theory is as good as mental masturbation.

Yeah, let's split the site even more.
Hell, let's have a board for every general. No, better! Every single country! That way we can keep everything contained and no thread will have to exist on the same board as another ever again.

 No.11385

I disagree. I think we should split up boards more and encourage the use of the overboard and similar aggregates.

 No.11386

Because people who are obsessed with geopolitics quickly start forgetting communist theory is first and foremost about the centrality of labor in our societies, and how to abolish the exploitation of the working class.
Instead they act like it's all a game of supporting whatever national bourgeoisie is opposed to the West on the internet, while they can't even agree on a definition of their favorite word – "imperialism".
Of course, knowing what is going on around the world is important, and if there is an anti-war movement in your country (especially in the West), you should support it, but you also need to realize your edgy opinions on geopolitics won't change a thing, nobody cares, certainly not the suits working in Washington D.C.
This kind of shit was directly responsible for the first /leftypol/ split on 8chan and immediately resulted in a drop in post quality.

You can actually insert Marxist thought into both geopolitics and econopolitics.

 No.11388

maybe there's too many generals already and everything just needs to be an OP

 No.11389

Now roulette idea: every post a new thread

 No.11752


 No.11753

Just hide the threads or scroll down, OP. You know those threads are there, and they are generals for a reason.

 No.11757
