Is leftypol going to join with maga?It seems as if the consensus on /ukraine/ is to entertain anti-nato right-wingers. I have seen what happened to redscarepodcast and stupidpol and yet it seems as if leftypol wants to go down the same path. I don't know how I would be able to deal with such a thing, having to choose between being tugged around by democrats and MSM or the peter thiel network and yet despite that nobody seems to care. If leftypol chooses to become allies with magacommunism and to try to go after the right then I will do so even though I think it's cringe. There is simply no time or meaning to be found in the western left now as they are too far gone and yet I feel sick every moment for considering this because the right will absolutely fuck us if they get the chance.

Tips for reading theory/new leftist reading listtGen z anon here, I have been lurking for a bit but now that things have been going south in my life I feel very motivated to study. Any tips for those zoomers with fucked up attention spans? Might just get hard copies if reading from the archive gets too distracting for me. I am personally willing to read anything radical enough ranging from Lenin to Kropotkin even if I don't necessarily consider myself an anarchist.

Martial arts threadComrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today. Also, Judo orange belt here (AMA if you want)
The axis of resistance is the targetThis declared war has greater dimensions than Ukraine, and its goal is to qualify Russia to lead the world and to lead the axis of resistance and to rehabilitate Putin, who has a black history of seizing power, liquidating his opponents, violating the rights of the Russians, and trading power with Medvedev for decades, qualifying him to lead the axis of resistance. Which includes Iran, the Islamic resistance, the Palestinian and the Yemeni as well.. This is how the West hopes that Putin will become qualified to lead the peoples with the right judges. And to reproduce the old polarization with the Soviet Union, which was somewhat comfortable and did not threaten Israel in terms of existence as the resistance threatens Israel. If this situation indicates anything, it indicates that the real conflict exists, even if it is not visible, between Russia and the axis of resistance over the leadership of the peoples, and not between the United States and Russia. Putin is a creation of the West, not a representative of the Russian people. And now his view of Dugin has entered the line, and the goal of assassinating his daughter may be to float his Eurasian project, which is the new incubator of Israel.

Red AestheticsHot take, I find a lot of socialist aesthetics cringe. People larping like they are living in the USSR circa 1933. Even Maupin's wear a suit BS devolved into this shit. If you want to look sane and not like a bunch of cosplaying morons then just wear normal clothes, maybe one tier above like business casual or a suit if you really must. Stop using hammer and sickle since that represented an alliance between the peasants, a class which no longer exists, esp. in the west, and the industrial workers.

Iran workers actions during the protestsThis is ideally a thread a thread to post updates and talk about organising during the ongoing protests, my information mainly pertains to the actions of the Iranian oil workers councils namely the 'Council for organizing protests of oil contract workers' who were behind the Campaign 1400 workers action which began June of last year and lasted till July of this year. Any other postings and updates about other area of iranian organising is greatly appreciated.
Film ThreadAlright filmfags, show me what you've got.
What are the best communist/socialist podcasts? and what are the worstI listened to behind the bastards and goddam they are the most insufferable unfunny losers. They have good information but their sense of humour is terrible and they legitimately repeat the same joke 20 times. I'm listening to the kissinger episodes, and they get more offended by Nixon saying racist stuff than they do the genocides he supported (which they often make tasteless jokes aboutas well)
Has Marxism-Leninism-Maoism stagnated?With the Communist Party of the Philippines already reaching half a century of continued revolutionary struggle, and other groups like the Naxalites at their 55th year of revolution, it seems to me as if these movements have essentially failed to capitalize on working class struggles on a broad scale, and have nothing to show for their revolutions besides that they still continue to persist. Is this evidence of MLM being unapplicable to the conditions in which they are currently being applied, or am i missing some external factor that is preventing these revolutions from succeeding completely and thoroughly?

TIKTOKNowadays most young people want to skip college to become TIKTOK famous or other social media and make money off being an influencer (and then use the money to "go into real estate"). What is the class position of influencers and why do so many young people want to become one? Does tiktok prove the superiority of socialist construction and the superiority of Beijing over silicon valley? Does the chinese government really use it to collect data on teens doing dance moves, NSA style? Why are social medias so popular and addicting to the youth in general? Why did something as cringe as music.ly get rebranded and become cool?

Reading GeneralHello leftypol, we noticed an under-appreciation for the theory that upholds our political ideologies: As such, we have decided to revive the reading sticky! This thread will be dedicated to the sharing, discussing, and general banter about various leftist thinkers, theories, and political outlooks.
Critique of generalized productionHow does socialism solve the problem of "it's cheaper to produce something than to fix it"? This problem appears inherent to generalized production. Simply put there is more labor involved in generalized production, ergo it is more efficient, whereas fixing things takes on the characteristics of pre-generalized production - that is a few laborers putting in a lot of effort for the end result.
Late Capitalism SimulatorLately I’ve seen a huge influx of good games that try to update the outdated capitalist realist Cyberpunk genre to the current political and economic landscape. Stuff like Disco Elysium is getting more and more recognition they rightfully deserve for depicting the hopeless and bleak death of modern revolution. However they’re still have some semblance of hope like with Ghostrunner having the corporation being destroyed by a revolution in contrast to the sad oppression of the system.

Gundam EvolutionAnyone playing this? Its a pretty good game. The main problem is pay to win, you can get mechs through in game money but you can also just buy them. Balance is also a massive issue, Exia stomps everyone and can 1v6 since it appeals to teenagers the most, sort of like Yone in LoL. The Sazabi is pretty fun though and thats also one of the coolest designs.
Karl Marx Theory1. Reading Marxist theory can help people understand why certain things happen in society and how to change it. People should read Marxist theory because it can help them change their view of society and become more politically aware.

Communist News NetworkShould we strive to create a pro-communist television news network? The strength of communist media a hundred years ago used to be measured by the number of daily newspapers - in $current_year, wouldn't this mean building a live full-day communist TV broadcast? Weekly newspapers will never have the same mass appeal as live video content.
