Guide for Leftist literature?
>>12186254Just consume MSM every day.
>>12186254LeninKropotkinGoldmanMarxAlthusser some pretty basics to start with i guess
Leftypol has made a flowchart, but I'm on my phone and thus not in possession of it.
>>12186279>thinking the MSM is actually leftistremember you can press the button next to your bed if you forget how not to choke on your own spit again and someone will come help.
>>12186293Right, I forgot that leftism has never been tried in real life and every so called communist state wasn't REALLY communist therefore it doesn't count.
>>12186309You can't even defend your dumb MSM post can you. Immediate move to a new topic.
>>12186365There's nothing to rebut here, kiddo:>remember you can press the button next to your bed if you forget how not to choke on your own spit again and someone will come help.
>>12186293>uhmmm ackshuallyy theyre liberalLeftism has never existed and will never work. NEOLIBGANG
>>12186254>Implying they read
>>12186254In case you're not baiting:Grover Furr: Bloodlies, Kruschev Lied.A. Murphy: Triumph of EvilMobo Gao: Battle for China's PastNickolay Yakovlev: Archipelago of LiesRosa Luxemburg: Reform or RevolutionSelected writings of Alexandra KollontaiLudo Martens: Another view of StalinKonstantin Chernishenko: Human rights in the Soviet SocietyObviosly, what >>12186280 said as well.
This will keep you busy for a while
>>12187475Or you can just skip to the end and move on with your life.
>>12187501That chart is the end, I was of course implying to start with the greeks first!
>>12186293Not that guy, but of course the MSM is leftist by any real standard-a center-right one. If you disagree, then you are a stupid person. Next you'll be preening again about some immaterial distinction between classical/neo/liberalism and Marxism, or the corporate character of today's media, as if it matters.
>>12186280Don't forget Sorel
>>12186254anything by Buddha, or Nagarjuna
>>12186254How tf in one month /lit/ turned into leftypol vol. 2.0 Just look in a catalog dumbass, there were three (3!) Threads about leftist literature today and there are probably another three in archive. Is this some fucking leftist raid???.>inb4 fucking /pol/tard gtfo to containment board.Nope im not from there just dont understand this ammount of shitty politician threads.
>>12186254>> Leftist>> LiteratureHe isn't asking for political tracts, you faggots.Anon, read the Strugatskys, Yefremov, Mayakovsky, Platonov, Kataev, Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Bulgakov, Pasternak, Alexander Zinoviev and the pre-Archipelago Solzhenitsyn. For starters. God-tier.
>>12187566>the corporate character of today's media, as if it mattersHow does it not?
>Americans think CNN is leftistMost democrats would be considered centre right in Europe.
>>12188772> the pre-Archipelago Solzhenitsynwhy, Anon, did he change his mind or something?
>>12186254For some reason I doubt that Marx had good posture
>>12188784>still believing in the left/right spectrumidiot
Eric HOBSBAWMGo read about the concept of social banditry. You'll thank yourself for it and feel good about things.
>>12188817hobsyawn more like. This guy doesn't even try to conceal his bias towards leftism
>>12188796Pretty sure he was an alcoholic book nerd who was just resentful poor people didn't agree with him.
>>12188772>be member of Russian intelligentsia during the Soviet era>hate the soul-numbing effects of leftist ideology, but also value your life and having your work published>opt for peaceful reform within the parameters of the system and satire instead>get called a "leftist" 80 years by people on a Sri Lankan origami picture show internet siteyou don't get to become as BASED as pic related and write things like Morphine and Heart of a Dog through the cultural sickness that is leftism.
>12188772 (You)>Strugatskys, Yefremov, Mayakovsky, Platonov, Kataev, Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Bulgakov, Pasternak, Alexander Zinoviev and the pre-Archipelago Solzhenitsyn>Solzhenitsyn>leftistb8(8)/8

>>12190025I’m not done, sweaty. Don’t interrupt.
why are /pol/tards always seething at every mention of Marx/socialism/leftism? How can people be so insecure about their ideology?
>>12190045I’m done for now, I guess.Sent from my iPhone.Edit: Thanks for the gold, kind stranger!
>>12190025spotted the legitimate discord tranny
>>12190055Not at all, but I would rather be around discord transvestites than abnoxious b-style posters. I don't care about discord and your cringe comp is going in my cringe comp.
>>12186254Those Marxes look more like Walt Whitman imho
>>12186395>Grover Furrfucking embarrassing>>12187566>immaterial distinction between classical/neo/liberalism and Marxismyour lack of understanding of these concepts is showing. liberalism and socialism are, of course, incompatible, being based on different modes of productionanyway, i'd recommend the works of Laclau and Mouffe for something interesting. they call themselves post-Marxist, they go too far in their assertions, but still very interesting and relevant.oh, and Gramsci's prison notebooks are essential if you want a Marxism that moves beyond childish marxism-leninism.
Beginners’ Reading List for Marxism (including works by Engels)Always keep in mind that Engels’ works are his interpretations of Marx, not Marx himself. In addition, he offers original insights (correct and incorrect) that are not attributable to Marx.Introduction and Overview(M) Marx’s Letter to J. Weydemeyer (1852)(E) Draft of a Communist Confession of Faith(E) The Principles of Communism(M/E) The Communist Manifesto(E) Socialism: Utopian and ScientificFoundations of Marx’s Critique(The foundations of Marx's outlook were completed around 1846 to 1847, which was "a time," said Engels, "when Marx had cleared up for himself the basic features of his new historical and economic outlook". The following works range in dates from 1843 to 1846.)(M) Marx to Ruge (Sep. 1843)(M) Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844(M/E) The Holy Family, Chapter Four Excerpt(M) Theses on Feuerbach(M/E) The German Ideology, Chapter OneCritique of Political Economy(M) Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, Preface(E) Letters on Historical Materialism(M) ‘Estranged Labor’ from Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts(M) Wage-Labor and Capital(M) Value, Price, and Profit(M) Capital Vol. 1Critique of Socialism(E) Letter to Bebel (1882)(M) The Poverty of Philosophy(M) Address of the Central Committee to the Communist League(M) Inaugural Address of the International Workingmen’s Association(M) Strategy and Tactics of the Class Struggle(M) The Civil War in France(M) Conspectus of Bakunin’s ‘Statism and Anarchy’(E) On Authority(M) Critique of the Gotha Programme(E) Anti-DuhringFor dispelling myths about marxism https://marxmyths.org/index.phpAnarchism What is property by proudhon Philosophy of poverty by proudhon Statism and anarchy by bakunin Mutual aid and the conquest of bread by kropotkin
>>12190543You can find all the Marxist works online for free on Marxists.orgAnd the anarchist ones on theanarchistlibrary.org
>>12190543how is a list of works written in the 19th century at all relevant in the present day? I mean, sure, it's good to get foundational knowledge, but it really isn't the case that most of these are worth reading.Take Capital Vol. 1. It's over a thousand pages long. Harvey's The Limits to Capital distils everything essential in it, and actually brings it up to date.
Also I would really suggest you to read up more and more about left-communism and communization rather than marxism-leninism or Maoism If you're interested I would like to provide some resources on leftcom or communization too
Watcha doin' son, reading your old commie gobblygook again?Just kidding, champ. I love the Marx Brothers.
>>12190589Please don't read any secondary sources or commentaries on capital Read the actual capital by Marx , the first 3 chapters are difficult but after that it's a relatively easy read
Seems like the right place to ask - any recommendations for British/Irish working class literature? - have read some of the Young Angry Men (Silitoe mainly, because a lot of writers grouped under that not very helpful tag seem to be Oxford types) but looking for more.
>>12186279fpbp>>12186293ahh, the eternal purity spiraling of the left. reminder that even if you support left now, they will murder you for being insufficiently left anyways in the future once their spiraling reaches its typical conclusion that happens every time.
>>12188772>pre-Archipelago Solzhenitsynthe extent of mind games lefties go to shield themselves from cognitive dissonance is nothing short of mental illness
>>12190904>british angry young menthe concerns of getting yelled at by school administrators seem so trite compared to migrant gang rapes.
>>12188784Why do you repeat this lie? Democrats are 100% on identity politics train and are to be considered far-left now. Not to mention CNN doesn't even pretend to be non-partisan anymore.
>>12190046Because it's proven not to work, 100% failure rate comparatively and decisively. People who do not understand that and buy into commie rhetoric are incredibly stupid, and people who understand that but use commie rhetoric for personal gain are incredibly dangerous, text-book examples of psychopaths. Both groups deserve gas. Any more questions?
>>12186280>No Sorel>No BakuninHow much butthurt does Bakunin cause because he's not some bourgeois autist who think that nationalism is a product or capitalism
>>12190969and fascism is in any way different how?
>>12191086I didn't advocate for fascism. I explained to you why /pol/ hates Marx/socialism/leftism when you asked. Take it or leave it.
>>12190952>identity politics are exclusively left-wing>capitalists are to be considered far-leftPlease read a couple of books before posting here.
>>12190952>he thinks idpol is what makes something far leftlol
>>12191153>not sufficiently leftist!!!!!!111Aaaand here comes the purity spiraling. Like a clockwork. Choke on dick.
i started with marxists.org and reddit/socialist starter pack, OP, you won't go wrong with thosei grew out of ideology when i started working minimum wage jobs after high school because i couldn't afford to go to university. my dumb parents raised me a republican voter and my religious teachers in school didn't help me either. i am basically re-educating myself properly trying to fix all the damage the state and tradition did to my impressionable, underdeveloped mind. i am so mad
>>12186254>Leftist literatureIt's just called literature, OP.Start with the Greeks or fuck off.
>>12190046>why are /pol/tards always seething at every mention of Marx/socialism/leftism? How can people be so insecure about their ideology?reactionaries are dangerous. they react violently to what they fear the most. that is why they find solace in religious, state, and corporate sponsored propaganda telling them they have everything under control and will keep away the brown people and the communists for just a few of their dollars every Sunday morning. ignore them and reach out to the few enlightened out there like OP asking questions and willing to hear opposing views and unconventional wisdom
>>12190046why are /leftypol/tards always seething at every mention of anyone else right of Marx/capitalism/rightism? How can people be so insecure about their ideology?
>>12191194This better be b8
>>12186254socrates. plato, the bible, kant, hegel, marx and then all the marxist.
>>12191228thank you for your based post
>>12189997>>12190000>>12190002>>12190009>>12190011>>12190013Still looks better than reddit grandmas
>>12192709Not really, comrade.
>>12192728actually it is
>>12192905Mentally ill communists chopping their penises off looks better than some cringey posts from 2015 of old women talking about 4chan?
A picture of Marx's face made out of coins is the corniest book cover possible, but the David Harvey Capital book, along with the Ben Fine + Alfredo Saad-Filho book, are the best intros you could go with for the critique of political economy (that I know of)
>>12192905>cute old ladies figuring out computers>surgically deformed, SSRI numbed transvestites
>>12192925imagine trying to defend the invasion of 4chan by bommer reddit scum
>>12187935Because the ground is shifting. Watch, you'll be either gone or adopt some sort of anticorporate stance like the fools before you in 2010.
>>12193069also a lot of /leftypol/ comrades have since returned to 4chan after the BO split the board and destroyed much of the community with his "anti-imperialism"
>>12193046Imagine trying to defend the invasion of 4chan by discord trannies.Imagine reading on /r/chapotraphouse that 4chan was a leftist paradise before the election and people only said nigger, I mean the n-word, ironically.Imagine thinking that those old ladies ever made more than a few posts.Imagine deflecting from being called out for being a the discord tranny that you are.Imagine chopping of your penis so you can have an open wound that you have to shove a dildo into to keep it from healing.Imagine calling your open wound a vagina.Imagine replying to this with something like “imagine being this mad”.Imagine being a communist.Don’t @ me.
>>12193096>Imagine replying to this with something like “imagine being this mad”.imagine being this mad tho
>>12193136I said don’t @ me.
>>12193151you seem consumed by irrational anger at a tiny fraction of 4chan's population
>>12192925mentally ill people cutting their dicks off are better than boomer grandma's yes.where the fuck do you think you are?
>>121932524chan is changing ideologically and you can do nothing except ineffectually lash out against it.
>>12186254>It costs money just to visit this man's grave.Even in death Marx performs a capitalist function.
>>12193298do you think this is some major own?
>>12193306Do you think it’s normal to cut off your penis?
>>12193298Marx in Capital: the material world around us is produced through specific social relations that I characterise as capitalism.Guy who has to close "Your disk is almost full" dialog window every time he boots up because of metastasised anime reaction image folder: it's ironic that Marx lived in a world produced through capitalist social relations.
>>12193324you seem pretty obsessed with trannies
>>12193324If you want to
>>12193306No, just stating the irony.
>>12193330>>12193334You will never be a real woman and, like most discord trannies, you’re statistically likely to kill yourselves. Mentally healthy people don’t cut off their penises, nor are mentally healthy people communists.
>>12193329>Marx in Capital: the material world around us is produced through specific social relations that I characterize as capitalism.Right, but his entire argument was the dismantling of these capitalist relationships and replacing them with socialist ones. I wasn't trying to prove a point for or against socialism, just stating how all these years later even his corpse is still working in a capitalist society. That must be indescribably frustrating to him, which makes it funny to me.
One more try, comrades, I’m sure it’ll work this time!
>>12193354Tell me more about your mother. Did she care for you?
>>12193252>>12193262it's not changing ideologically.. if anything it's reacting/been slowly recognizing the invading force of causefags from /pol/
>>12193362Yeah, it's undeniably true that the tensions at the level of theory or history Marx uncovered did absolutely not develop in the way he thought they would practically and politically
>>12193375She did, but she also wasn’t overbearing. I was allowed to walk home from school by myself. She’s been happily married to my father for over thirty years. He was a good parent as well, he never beat me, yet still instilled discipline and good ethics in me. As a result of my childhood I have grown into a mentally healthy young man. I am neither a communist, nor a penisless discord tranny.
>>12193388A lot of the boards are moving left, mostly because people are so sick and tired after three years of /pol/ autism.It's more prevalent on /a/ and the other anime-centric boards where there's a substantial centre-left presence.
>>12193401It sounds like your parents let the family computer raise you, to be honest.You also seem to have an unhealthy obsession with dicks and trannies.
>>12193430>It's more prevalent on /a/ and the other anime-centric boards where there's a substantial centre-left presence.This is why no one on 4chan likes either /pol/ or lefty-/pol/, you fucks always have to bring your political bullshit and taint it with everyone you see, hear and touch. /a/ is for anime, not politics. The only people on /a/ who post anything you might construe as political are the same autists who shitpost and derail threads because they feel they have to be the centre of attention wherever they go. That is a very small minority of 4chan outside of /pol/, despite what you might believe from your 2 years of experience on this site.
>>12193451I don’t know where you pulled that from, your arse most likely. We sat down for family dinners most nights and I wasn’t allowed to play video games for more than two hours on the weekends. I also haven’t chopped my penis off and made an axe wound on my crotch that I have to dilate for four hours a day.
>>12188784When it comes to issue like culture and immigrants, the Democrats might be the most left wing party on earth. In Europe, saying something like "we need to restrict immigration" it considered an intelligent and respectable position. In America, saying this will get you branded as fascist by the Democratic Party.You can't purely look at the desire for public spending. Democrats are now at the point where they want to abolish immigration enforcement. This would be a radical position in Europe.
>>12193505I swear there is nothing more nauseating than burger fumes
>>12193531Go ahead and make a snarky reply but you know its right. Europeans want public spending but there is still a deep embedded conservatism in their culture that is absent in USA.
>>12193505dude any time a european politician even suggests restricting immigration the nytimes will run stories all week about a rising tide of fascism returning to europe or whatever guaranteed
>>12193505Damn dude you figured it out! Obama did in fact secretly abolish ICE and establish open borders! The fact that 1.2 million asylum seekers entered Germany in 2015-2016 and that during that period the USA only accepted a maximum of 85,000 asylum seekers per year are just counter-information from ZOG to make you forget Europe's pure racial ideals. Bill Clinton definitely did not hire a record number of border guards. The Democrats are absolutely the utopian ideal of liberated human movement, and the best humanity can ever realistically hope for in coming to terms with movement across nation states and through zones of capital is timid 21st-century social-democratic European policy.
>>12193544>1.2 million asylum seekers entered Germany in 2015-2016 Holy shit that a ludicrous amount of people in a short period, wtf is wrong with krauts
>>12193561its because merkel was in charge for like 20 years , supposedly a democracy but they sure dont change leadership too often
>>12193473Think pic related in regards to Gamergate. Not everything is "omg trolls from /pol/". If you cover your ears and pretend nothing is happening then your hobby is going to get more and more corrupted by political influence.
someone make a graph in excel showing the relationship between times you fuck every month and likelihood that someone obsesses over immigration but thinks global warming is a hoax
>>12193544Fucking retard. The fact it happened in Germany is because the government forced it upon them, not because it had public support. People in France, Germany, Canada most places in Europe want to restrict immigration more than the CURRENT Democrats, this is a fact. Your stupid, silly tone almost seems like a defense mechanism, because you know Im right
>>12193573>Belief systems are intrinsic to human intelligence and survival. They frame the flux of primary experience, which would otherwise flood the mind.jesus christ what a pseud
>>12193576Yeah, I guess deep down I know you're right! Sorry for being silly.Democrats have popular support for immigration reform? And that support is reflected at the level of the rhetoric and policies of their politicians in power? That's so cool!
>>12193575haha woah leftists fuck amirite?
>>12193576Peppering your arguments with insults and cusses is a hallmark that you're insecure about the validity of your own argument and are using bluster to hide that fact.Faggot.
>>12193575>The 1804 Haiti massacre was carried out against the remaining white population of native French people and French Creoles (or Franco-Haitians) in Haiti by Haitian soldiers under orders from Jean-Jacques Dessalines. He had decreed that all suspected of conspiring in the acts of the expelled army should be put to death.>The massacre, which took place throughout Haiti, occurred from early January 1804 until 22 April 1804, and resulted in the death of 3,000 to 5,000 men, women, and children. Squads of soldiers moved from house to house, torturing and killing entire families. Even whites who had been friendly and sympathetic to the black population were imprisoned and later killed. A second wave of massacres targeted white women and children.This will be you and you’re urbanite friends the moment the brown hordes outnumber you, which won’t be long now.
>>12193567>>12193573>Religion is a belief system intrinsic to human survivalNo>My substitute for religion is artWhat a backwards way of unsuccessfully trying to prove why your art degree is worth something to society.
>>12193596haha woah leftists fuck amirite?
>>12193590if u ever spent time with leftist they are like a group of chimps, one chad fucks most of the chicks, and all the other dudes are resentful that this guy is violating the rules of feminism by seducing chicks
>>12193596I get laid friend the hurr if you disagree with me means you don't get laid fallacy is a little played out don't you think?
>>12193612Jesus. What are you even arguing at this point?
>>12193602Yikes! As a 19th-century French slave owner, this has me quivering in my leather boots. The eternal coloured horde seeks metaphysical vengeance of my pale purity!
>>12193617that some leftists fuck a lot but most dont
>>12193567>If you cover your ears and pretend nothing is happening then your hobby is going to get more and more corrupted by political influence.Not too sure I follow your reasoning. Are you trying to argue that Marxists are obsessed with viewing everything in society from a political standpoint? Because if so then I agree, but it's the exact same mindset as /pol/ and the alt-right. Politic ideologies don't fall on a linear scale, its closer to a horseshoe.
>>12193617Hmmm. Obviously you have not spent time with Leftists, whom are much like the Neanderthals of yore, centring around one "pack-leader" or "friend-who-fucks" — would a taxonomy of skull shapes help?
>>12193624>>12193643I think you both need to go to bed. Aren't exams coming up?
>>12193575I mean conservatives like vastly outbreed liberals so idk what your point is.
>>12193618Do you really believe that non-whites aren’t extremely tribal? This will not end well and it’ll end within our lifetime.
>>12193648One has a significantly higher rate of stable marriage than the other. Interestingly I wonder if that corresponds with domestic abuse?
>>12193643the guy who fucks isnt the leader, the leader is usually the gay guy from the most expensive college, the guy who fucks doesnt want to lead he just wants ass
>>12193647Wow. I have no need for rote study. I merely google image search "Plato" and scroll through the results, absorbing the wisdom contained in that noble and well-formed brow.
>>12193654>conservatives are mentally stable have happy marriages>they must be beating their wivesWe’re not Muslims. Lesbians have the highest rate of domestic abuse anyway.
>>12193602SSRIs can probably help whatever you're suffering from
>>12193651Imagine being a Haitian slave. Wouldn't white people - until you developed a better idea of the history of your situation - spear to be doing what they're doing because of their "highly tribal" nature?
>>12193603Militant atheism hasn't won over a single state. In North Korea there's Roman emperor worship. The Russian Orthodox church is alive and well. In China:>According to Peter Ng, Professor of the Department of Religion at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, as of 2002, 95% of Chinese were religious in some way if religion is considered to include traditional folk practices such as burning incense for gods or ancestors at life-cycle or seasonal festivals, fortune telling and related customary practicesMarxism, a materialist ideology, ignores man's unconscious and his spiritual needs. An apolitical pop culture directed at the masses might do that, but cultural Marxism interferes in that aim.It's amazing how much you're missing the point.
>>12193693*spear = appear
>>12193693So it’s okay to kill people that want to help you and innocent women and children if they’re white and prefer their own tribe? And you’re okay with that happening to you to atone for your original sin of being from the white tribe?
>>12193675>A stable marriage is a happy marriageA stable marriage only means you're not cheating or at risk of divorce. Plenty of couples in domestic abuse classify as stable because they incorporate it as part of their relationship. The point about lesbians is true though, so I guess that answers my question.
The silver lining of the carnage of world war I was that dipshit nationalists like the ones in this thread would have immediately enlisted in 1914 and gotten ripped to shreds by german machine guns
>>12193705That sounds extremely cool. Where do I sign up
>>12193639The only thing that will destroy cultural Marxism and allow mainstream movies, music, and video games to return to ars gratis artis, is counter-revolutionary action.
>>12193696I'm not doubting the importance or omnipresence of religion in society, but to utter such stupid hyperbole like "religion is a belief system intrinsic to human survival" is beyond moronic. Religion, as this person pointed out, is not intrinsic to human survival, but some type of spiritual belief system is according to them. It's true life is bland and meaningless without some form of spiritual belief, but it certainly isn't "intrinsic to human survival".
>>12193735oh no star wars had a black guy in it, cultural marxism is ruining the west, fuckin kill urself brah
>>12193744>this person>doesnt know who camile paglia is>calls others pseudyikes
>>12193735Ha, unironically go neck yourself. You're no better than the sjw trash ruining your escapist media.
>>12193753>using others arguments because you're too lazy to come up with your ownThe pinnacle of pseud.
>>12193735>>12193747you have to admit tho star trek really was ahead of its time that shit would trigger fatkids today if it came out in 2018, but it was released in the damn 60s
>>12193769>Hating people for making everything political because they hate others who make everything political makes you a political agentThere is no end to this viscious cycle.
>>12193769If you're trying to argue I'm a bleeding liberal then you couldn't be further from the truth, but keep projecting.
>>12193747prime example of a completely non-political movie that once captivated people being transformed into sterile trash. Without any political intent, Lando was cast as black in the Empire Strikes Back. Yet you see the clear racial divides in casting colored people as good guys vs. evil white raycissts in the new one. But that doesn't describe the entire backlash towards the series. It fails on its artistic merits, which have degenerated because of the new critical emphasis on political correctness.Here, as recently as Nov 19th, a Broadway musical is being condemned in the New York Times for having a mostly white cast:>The Rockettes and Race: A Very White Christmas - The New York Times>https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/30/nyregion/the-rockettes-and-race-a-very-white-christmas.amp.html>"the crowd was very white">"I talked to the producer and was informed that the cast was only 10 percent people of color"
>>12193761Sam Hyde charges people $10 a month so that they can watch him in his 2007 Toyota Tercel rant into a camera about credit card interest chargesHe personally tanked MDE with his massive fucking ego and he deserves the hell he lives in right now
>>12193811I agree but that tweet is spot on.
>>12193806>a completely non-political movieStar Wars has always been a pure embodiment of liberal ideology. It's just that you're mad that the liberal zeitgeist isn't catering to your racial fetishes anymore
>>12193813It isn't, it's just more dehumanization as what >>12193778 describes
>>12193814Great now the Disney shills are in the thread. Lucas didn’t give a fuck about making a “liberal” movie when he made Star Wars. That is such a fucking bald-faced lie. Your the racial fetishist. The old movies didn’t give a fuck about race. Your new movies are dogshit, Kathleen. Everybody knows it.
>>12193814Who are the fetishists? Who goes to Broadway shows, asks "what percentage of this cast is people of color?", then trashes the whole show in an article because it's "too white"?
>>12193834Communists aren’t human.
>>12193806Politics isn't some process detached from the state of the society it grows from - Star Wars always reflected liberal politics. Yeah, not in this desperate money-grubbing way it does now, but the political was always there. Star Wars was always a story about a bunch of weird rebellious losers fighting a straight-laced conforming society of old white guys with British accents. Today's Star Wars is more racial and hammy about it but it's still the same general schtick.
>>12193849To put it another way: Lando being a black rebel wasn't a big deal, but there were no black guys on the Empire's side.

>>12193876omg so BTFO, it is me, not the race-obsessed msm castigating shows for being too white.>this audience at this Beethoven concert is too white>that means it's evil>>12193849You can distill an essentially liberal viewpoint from its cinematic language but "liberal" in the context of US politics did not necessarily equate to "cultural marxist" in the mid 20th century. The previous Star Wars's message could be applicable for a pro-democratic Chinese student rebelling against Maoist China. Nor did the film industry or film going public of that period blatantly repress "fascist" movies like Dirty Harry. Film criticism emphasized aesthetics over politics.
>>12193911>You can distill an essentially liberal viewpoint fromFirst you said that star wars was apolitical and now you're admitting that there's a liberal message in early star wars. Which is it?
>>12193911>Film criticism emphasized aesthetics over politics.Fake news
>>12193923Revolution can be advocated in the name classical liberalism, such as the constitutional government of the United States, which was built on a revolution. Insofar as that is not a controversial statement to the American public or challenge wider political beliefs, it is essentially apolitical.
It's comforting to know that nationalists on 4chan have gone through three election cycles and still act like it's 2014 and anyone outside a few thousand highly online sadsacks gives a shit about media representation politicsDo you losers seriously think that unemployed assembly line workers in Opiate Valley, Indiana care if Disney put a black guy in a Star Wars movie?
>>12193911Again, the execution has changed. These Star Wars movies are ham-handed as all hell in a way Lando just being black was not - doesn't that just reflect the changing times rather than the spectre of whatever "cultural marxism" is supposed to be? These days everything is relentlessly politicised by everyone, left and right - as times have become more liberal so too have big-money movies from the US, which exist and have always existed primarily to make money, after all.
>>12193946So essentially if the politics depicted don't deviate from something blandly acceptable to all parties then it's therefore without politics? And anyway, the politics of modern Star Wars are basically the same except some characters have pink hair or dark skin! The ragtag bunch of losers are still fighting the authoritarian superpower. This is only 'political' to you because it triggers you while the earlier example where no one has pink hair does not.
>>12193946You're backpeddaling hard. If you're upholding a political viewpoint as good relative to another viewpoint or ideology then you're being political regardless of how accepted your viewpoint is.

>>12194069Although, of course, neither party is interested in truly halting the capitalist machine, the Democrats have clearly shifted permanently and forever towards cultural Marxism which is aimed at the social fabric of America. Is a "woke capital" cultural Marxist America still profitable? Yes. The Democrats don't care if Aztec hordes flood into the country, the new Star Wars will still sell tickets. Also, the Clintons are no longer viable so Hillary's getting cannibalized for that anti-migrant statement as we speak.However, both Democrats and establishment Republicans are currently ripping their hair out over Trump's China tariffs. Fascism and "illiberal" democracy? The true cure to the ills of international capitalism? stayyy tunnnedd :)
>>12194094No one cares about them doing it. It's academia taking the act of cutting one's dick off and distorting it into being something healthy that's sickening. It's teachers being unable to say "if you do that you're a fucking psychotic retard and here's perfectly good reasons why" in schools. Then, of course, the added insult of asking for state funds to pay for their Frankenstein procedures.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how young of a concept communism and even capitalism really are. In the long line of time and our lives how much does it matter? It appears that eventually both will collapse no matter if you think it’s because of social decay or technology. Maybe it’s environmental or war related.I just want you guys to take a deep breath and realize it’s temporary. I also care about all of you and I want you to be happy. Yeah, I’m talking to you. If you’re a Tankie, Shitlord, Furrie, Faggot, Fascist. It’s not that important. You’re a human being and you have value, it might be Anonymous but maybe this message will find one person that could use it. Take care out there in the wild, anon.

>>12194196either ideology can potentially destroy the natural worldyou're grossly underestimating the effects of industrialization
>>12194180Academia enables them. I sat in a class where I, with 150 other students, had to listen to a professor use Shakespeare's The Tempest as a launch point to start a discussion on the views of Judith Butler, who says gender is a construct.
>>12194216>Even the ones that might not deserve it.Everyone can receive the grace of God if they have true faith in Him, given willingly.
>>12194249Are you trying to say that industrialization will be the cause of the collapse? Or that it’s a huge economic force that necessitates one of those economic systems? Either way the point is to relax and at least for just a moment allow yourself some peace before letting the world weigh you down. It’s something worth doing, and I’m asking you to be open to it simply because I care about your well being.

>>12186254Guide it yourself. Be like the majority of leftist thinkers and skim through Marx and Engels, don't bother learning how to actually analyze or critique anything, and then offer "critiques" and "analysis" on contemporary society that basically all boils down to>society exists, but it benefits someone other than me, and that is oppression because i would like it to benefit me instead of other peopleIf you want to actually get engaged with leftist literature and learn something, go learn how to analyze things, realize that the vast majority of analysis on postmodernism is purely misinterpretation, and start from Marx.
