That's sort of the contradiction in Burger rightoids praising Switzerland for its relatively lax gun laws (with low crime) and being shocked at the Davos police paying a visit to that fascist tabloid journalist and seeing him as a tad suspicious (the Swiss intelligence services surveilled at least 1 in 3 foreigners during the Cold War). The militia culture + culture of snitching to the authorities kinda work together. There are reasons why that country kept its neutrality.

Pol Pot was only a problem because Kampuchea was a necessary element in the Sino-Soviet split. If Kampuchea had no border problems imagine it becoming a dangerous threat to Thailand and Myanmar.

Watching the latest NY shooter video got me thinking, how if at all possible could one survive a mass shooting? The first lady after he got out was doomed. The others seemed to be stuck with normalcy bias for a few seconds.

Is it better to run or to play dead, take cover?
Is normalcy bias bad, better to make a fool out of yourself overreacting to a nothingburger than to stand there in an actual shooting
Should one always walk behind some kind of cover in burgerstan? Seems like it is so common might as well

Nationwide abortion bill would backfire in Canada as it did in the U.S., experts say
If Canada were to give more control to its provinces over abortion, the country would likely see a divide that mimics the States, according to Sonia Lawrence, professor at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
“We would see differences between provinces and we would see really different kinds of political fights, particularly in some of the more conservative provinces,” Lawrence told Global News.
Although abortion is decriminalized in Canada, access can still be difficult and pregnant people are regularly referred to the U.S. for more complex abortions they cannot get here.
“The legal status of abortion is only one part of the picture in terms of the factors that contribute to how accessible abortion or how safe abortion is. And in that sense, when we’re talking about the status of abortion in a given country, it’s not just about the legislative status,” Lara Cousins, women’s rights specialist in sexual and reproductive rights at Oxfam Canada, told Global News.
“The access issue is one that we really need to be doing a lot better on and one in which we still have a far way to go just because we’ve fallen short in terms of really addressing the geographical barriers in relation to abortion access and the funding in relation to abortion access,” she said.
Cousins pointed to provinces like Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, where many abortion providers are located in urban centres while 35 to 40 per cent of the population live in rural communities, according to Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights.

Surprised that no one here talks about Jason Kenney, who is like Ralph Klein. Funny enough, I was speaking to an old lady who lives in the rural areas of Alberta and he reminds her of Klien, she really hates both. She worked as a nurse until Klein laid her off. She hates both the conservatives and Liberals.
If someone like that is very disillusioned about politics, I suspect many more people are.

Very good game that made my opinion turn completely on it over the last month. I used to think its the worst Fromsoft game after it chewed me and my old-gen PC with Guardian Ape and Spirit Monk. But after Elden Ring I said to myself "fuck it, one more try", played it from the start with good framerate this time and… Its the best Fromsoft game. It is amazingly fun to do the parry duels, and it feels really rewarding. I think to an extent I might just had something click in my head (literally didn't rage a single time, even though Owl, Owl (Father) and Demon of Hate all killed me at 1% health/poise on them left once), because now I love this game. Still think its bullshit how finite some consumables are, but that wasn't too much of a biggie, since I pracitcally didn't use any of them outside of pellets and flasks. And it really felt good that I managed to beat the final set of bosses without much issues. One-shotting True Corrupted Monk after being forced to learn for a good few dozen on Owl (Father) was insanely rewarding. Now the game is my new stressball as I give in a few shots at the chalange modes from time to time. I hope one day they port Bloodborne to PC, because I also used to look down on it for seeming too fast, but after Sekiro I'd really love to give it a shot.

You fucking idiot, you fucking retard. If anything Malayan socialist/communist movement is a perfect example of democratic centralism at its worst. When the leadership doesn't reflect or enact the will of the membership, due to it being infiltrated by glowies in Malaysia and being created by Rosa-killers in Singapore. VietAnon can talk about how glowies infiltrated and wreck the CPM from within

Pic related was part of the major events that ignited the Singaporean independence movement and already became a known dangerous OG to the British. Harry Lee literally approached him and formed the PAP with him (and other founders), and the bulk of his kakis followed him, with the USC/Fajar Club and the trade unions. But once they helped Harry into government, he constantly sidelined them and didn't allow them into the higher echleon of power. It is also doesn't help that LCS was in jail at that period of time to position himself in a high place in government. Harry became too much of a stooge for British imperialism, but the left wing and bulk of the membership couldn't really stop or slow him down from conducting his own agenda, due to democratic centralism locking the left wingers out. Attempts to wrestle power away from Harry and the moderates eventually escalating to them splitting to form Barisan Sosialis with 70% of the membership. The fact that 70% of the party couldn't move its leaders and hold them accountable is a joke.

And the sad part is, Barisan Sosialis literally replicated the same party structure, which makes them easy targets for Harry and the British. Operation Coldstore arrested and locked up 107 key leaders of Barisan Sosialis and its left wing movements. This severed the head of the Singapore Left, who couldn't operate as swiftly and effectively anymore. It has never recovered since. How or why should the entire movement be dependent on just 107 people?

Even now, when almost all parties here use a party structure similar to PAP's democratic centralism, glowie or idiots still get to infiltrate and wreck from within. The local demsucc party had some dumb bitch not only be elected as MP, but also wrecked the party by getting into a huge scandal and dragging everyone down. Demcen's top down approach has its disadvantages that I am suffering all too well under. I personally prefer Luxemburg over Lenin on the party qPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don't know, maybe I'm too naive. Like you don't even need to do that to argue against the second amendment, all you have to is point out that the worker's aren't armed in the US, the majority of firepower is concentrated in the hands of fascists, gun nuts and petty-capitalists and that under a communist revolution, not everyone will have the right to own a fire arm, all those are being confiscated and redistributed where they are needed such as into the communist militia. And that's if you want to argue against gun control.

The disease, which is typically confined to forested areas of western and central Africa, has been spreading rapidly in a number of European countries, as well as the US and Australia since early May.

According to the report, high on the meeting’s agenda are the mechanisms behind the virus’ transmission and possible vaccination strategies. Dr Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, is reportedly attending the discussion.

The newspaper claims that the WHO is looking at whether smallpox vaccines could be used effectively to tackle the spread of back to monke.

Meanwhile, the UK government has already ordered additional stocks of the smallpox vaccine, which is being administered to people who may have been exposed to monkeypox, the Telegraph reported. On top of the 5,000 doses the British authorities have on hand at present, an order has been placed for 20,000 more shots, according to the report.

In Africa, reports of the risk of death, if untreated, are as high as 10% to 11% in the Central African clade of monkeypox.[1][11]

Hello everyone. This is the thread to make proposals. Feel free to have your say whether user or mod. We have these proposals did not pass last week, but may be worthy of further discussion:



Proposal: Moderator votes remain the counted votes in admin decisions, but users should let vote using strawpolls (or perhaps polling systems built into the site?) per topic to display general user attitude to a proposal. If the majority User opinion directly opposes moderator majority vote then the proposals should be discussed and votes called on again after a break of 1-2 weeks to let people rethink positions on a topic.


Proposal: Make this the ‘official’ Leftypol channel >>>/leftypol/534666



Proposal: I think that we should also keep the current userbase engaged, making things like weekly game tournaments, actual organized debates, movie nights followed by discussion and so on. I've been thinking that a weekly leftypol podcast could be a good idea, just a couple of anons talking about what happened in the board and the world during the past week and inviting people to talk if they so desire, we could have debates there, and interviews and other things, and share it on spotify for others to see.

>leftypol loves taking the bait so youd just end up banning way too many people
Do we want to be in a position where taking the bait is normal? Honest question, not rhetorical: dumb stuff can be entertaining.
If we do want that to change, is it better to try and make a cultural shift as a community rather than enforce it by moderation?

Socialism or Extinction: Climate, Automation and War in the Final Capitalist Breakdown is a systematic theoretical/Marxist analysis of the unprecedented crises engulfing humanity, arguing:

• that capitalism per se – because its ever-growing dependence on exploiting labour makes the labour-intensity of extraction-based production increasingly necessary – is the cause of and can only continue to accelerate the climate crisis;

• that the overall rate of profit is trending historically towards (a permanent) zero and that the final expression of this is the tendency towards fully automated production, which is eliminating the sole source of profit/surplus value – the exploitation of commodity-producing human labour;

• that, drawing on the work of Karl Marx and Henryk Grossman, capitalism is heading unavoidably, in purely economic terms, towards a final, insurmountable breakdown that is destined to strike much earlier than a zero rate of profit – and, indeed, that the next, looming crisis will at some point see all fiat currencies collapse against precious metals, ie worldwide hyperinflation. It is also argued therefore that a global digital currency whereby exchange-value/value creation is based on labour's use-value instead of its surplus value – ending the exploitation of labour – is becoming an economic necessity;

• that the accumulation crisis is forcing the world’s imperialist powers into direct confrontation, meaning humanity faces not one extinction threat, but two;

• that the solution to the climate crisis requires: value creation to become based on use-value instead of surplus value, ending the absolute economic need to plunder the environment; an incentivised transition towards a communal system of living in order to achieve massive efficiency gains; and the end of the alienation capitalism imposes between man and nature, in large part by ending the international prohibition of hemp, nature’s most prolific and versatile crop – and the key not only to reversing desertification and stabilising the climate, but to the next stage in technological and industrial development, ie a green industrial revolution that is actually green;

• that the productive forces, in line with their historical development, now demand democratic central planning of the economy as a whole – ie a public monopoly – meaning the all-socialist state and a Communist International remain necessary during the transition to (global, sPost too long.

Why force anon?
Anonymity provides many benefits that other leftist communities don't provide.
>anti-celebrityism
>drama reduction
>removal of prejudice in responses, removing many potential causes of fallacious arguments (conscious or otherwise)
Users taking on identities encourages negative behaviors.

There are some potential cases where an identity might be appropriate within a single thread, but users taking board-wide identities are antithetical to the strengths of this site. Their identity serves no purpose but to satisfy the ego.

Take it to GETchan, Matrix or just have namefaggotry on /siberia/ only. There are many, many communities purpose-built for those values. This should not be one of them.

The parliamentary Finance Committee announced on May 14 that the money allocated under the food security bill had increased to 27 trillion Iraqi dinars. Yet this bill was aborted by the Federal Court on May 15, because it contradicts the constitution, which embarrassed the cabinet, according to the finance minister. The federal court rejection came a day before discussing it in the parliament. The decision was denounced by the three elements of the largest coalition in the parliament, Saving the Homeland, which consists of Muqtada Sadr’s movement, Masoud Barzani’s Kurdistan Democratic Party and Muhammad Halbousi’s Sovereignity Alliance.

I take your point but when you read those pieces (with the exception of the seattle one) you can see hte tone they take is a 'this is not a huge issue, etc, etc which is completely at odds with the big deal that certain parts of the american media and /pol/ types (who have latched on to this hard, i have had two randomly try to start conversations about it with me already,, it intersects havily with COVID autism) have tane.
