Rules:

1. No spam.

2. Follow the global rule.

Other than that, this board is going to allow open political discussion. This place is intended to be the opposite of a hugbox.

EDIT january 4: So I created this board in early december which usually sees a drop in users for all boards. Now that we've passed the new year I'm going to work on adding content daily and try to advertise this place some more. My goal isn't to compete with other boards but to create an alternative to /pol/ and /leftypol/ with enough unique ISPs to keep this place visible on the Top 25 board list.

Good news!

I am now the owner of /8pol/ and will be working primarily on that board from now on. I will maintain this board, delete spam, etc but will no longer be advertising or creating content.

I encourage all of you to begin posting on >>>/8pol/

1. What is the point of this board?

This board exists to encourage free speech discussions that aren't possible on other boards, mostly pertaining to politics.

2. Why did you create this board?

I am an oldfag who found 8chan due to the Gamergate controversy. I loved the idea of a free speech site. Unfortunately, it seems like most people have forgotten why this site was popular in the first place. All the boards are now run as circle-jerks and the mods are absolute cancer. I created this board because, ironically, all the boards on 8chan have turned against free speech.

3. Is this a communist board?

No. It's a board for everyone.

4. Why is it named 1917?

Honestly, I named it this because my other choices were already taken and the site admins never responded to my emails. Plus, Soviet aesthetics are cool.

5. Can I post about non-political stuff?

Yes. In general you can post about anything as long as it isn't spam or illegal according to U.S. law.

6. How do I know you won't turn this into another circle-jerk?

First, I have made all board logs public, which means you can see mod actions without being a moderator. So people will know if mods are abusing power. Second, this board isn't going to push a specific ideology or narrative.

Board log: https://sys.8ch.net/log.php?page=1&board=1917

7. Someone posted something offensive, can you delete it?

No. Here you are allowed to be offensive. If someone shitposts you, you are allowed to shitpost them back. If someone lies, you can expose them.

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

For those of you who aren't aware, the board owner at /leftypol/ has been shitting up his/her own board for the past few months. In addition, a volunteer revealed that the owner is turning /leftypol/ into a Stalinist circle-jerk that from now on will be a controlled narrative like /pol/.

There seems to be significant disagreement between mods behind the scenes as evident from the ban list.

The /leftypol/ board was actually rising very fast in popularity until the recent drama. In November, the board split between pro-Rojava and anti-Rojava groups. The pro-Rojava group created a splinter board at /leftpol/ which is slowly declining in users.

Very strange things happening on 8chan regarding the "q" boards. Supposedly someone named Q has been dropping info on 8chan. What makes all of this very strange is that suddenly a new board is created and within hours has thousands of posts and 900-1500 unique ISPs.

People have posted about this on various 8chan boards but the threads are usually anchored.

I'm not sure what's going on. I personally think that the vast majority of "unique ISPs" on 8chan are fake, and that on any given board there are substantial numbers of bots posting. Who? Why? I don't know.

One possibility is that the site owners deliberately inflating board numbers to make the site more attractive to advertisers. But this is just a guess.

honestly why do u guys care to change the world. like nothings going to change, its just going to keep getting worse. there will be no white uprising or anything silly like that

thats why the correct life direction is a reclusive aesthetic religious one. a life where you move to a more remote location, and life life dedicated for God ONLY, nothing else. in this society the women are always going to be super whores, its going to keep getting worse in all direction, why even bother

just get your testicles removed and live an ascetic life solely revolving around God. read matthew 19:12, matthew 18:8, matthew 5:29, mark 9:43

eastern non-abrihamic religions also value being a eunuch and also see it as a way to stop sinning and reach a higher state of consciousness

all you guys care for society too much, why bother lol its just going to get worse, not better

just focus on yourself and leave the game entirely. all real robots are kv as well, virgins dont care for the politics of this world, only normie non-virgins care. im kv and honestly i enjoy watching everything burn

Going to dump info on Middle East events here.

The 2003 invasion of Iraq probably was the first time I began to consider the reality of U.S. policy in the Middle East, as well as its causes. The standard leftwing belief was "a war for oil." This seemed possible at the time, but the actions of the U.S. government often indicated that something else was afoot. That was when I first heard of Zionism. In those days a few asserted that U.S. middle east policy, in general, was not to achieve any specific aim but rather to destabilize the region with the ultimate goal of eliminating potential threats to Israel. 15 years later, this theory has not been disproven…

Iran - a few brief notes

There seem to be some serious factional infighting in Iran. Former president Ahmadinejad's deputy has been sentenced to prison for embezzlement and Ahmadinejad has also been accused of corruption. Ahmadinejad has, in turn, accused the Larijani brothers of corruption. Then Ahmadinejad was accusing of inciting protests and was arrested. What a shitshow.

Who are the Larijani brothers?

Ali Larijani - Speaker of the Iranian parliament

Sadegh Larijani - Iranian Chief Judiciary

Plot twist: Sadegh's daughter, Zahra Larijani, was accused of spying for the British and was allegedly arrested.

The current consensus seems to be that the protests happening are due to economic hardship and the failure of the reformists to bring any real improvement in Iran.

Now is the time to hit the Iranian regime with lower oil prices

(((David B. Rivkin, Jr.))) and Nawaf E. Obaid, Opinion contributors Published 4:19 p.m. ET Jan. 7, 2018 | Updated 7:46 a.m. ET Jan. 8, 2018

For the sake of the Iranian people and global stability, we need to lead the effort in suppressing oil prices beyond what Tehran can bear.

Mass protests are gripping Iran as its people express their discontent with crippling poverty, governmental corruption, and Tehran's highly expensive sponsorship of terrorist proxies around the Middle East. The protests are geographically widespread, rural and urban, and challenge the very sinews of Iran's mullahcracy. The United States can and should support Iranian freedom by pressuring the regime at its most vulnerable point, oil revenues. This strategy should have long- and short-term components, both designed to decrease global oil prices.

Iran's dire economic situation is at the heart of this discontent. As President Rouhani acknowledged, the government cannot meet payroll and is seeking to increase revenue and decrease expenditures. Since 80% of Iran's budget comes from petroleum exports, the quickest and surest way to bring about regime change in Tehran is a broad campaign to reduce current global oil prices.

In order for Tehran to balance its budget, oil prices need to be around $130 per barrel, over twice what they are today. Several factors — including government-promised subsidies to wheat farmers and debt payment obligations that are headed toward default — are pushing Iran to the financial breaking point. Add to this the rising costs of Tehran's military establishment, and the mullahs' expanding commitment to fomenting chaos around the Arab world, and you have a recipe for financial meltdown. The doomsday scenario could only be avoided by a major rise in oil prices that would allow Iran, with 10% of proven global reserves, to rescue itself.

For the sake of the Iranian people and global stability, this cannot be allowed to happen. Washington should lead the effort. TehrPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Continued…

Second, the United States should continue with its long-term efforts to increase both the U.S. oil output — which it has already done by just announcing a major expansion of offshore oil drilling — and increasing U.S. capacity to export oil and petroleum products by building additional pipelines and terminal facilities. While these efforts would exert some downward pressure on prices, they would need to be supplemented by the short-term measures, that are capable of having an immediate pricing impact. The key such measure would be an agreement between the United States and a Saudi-led coalition (along with UAE and Kuwait) to increase output, bringing the price down by at least $10 per barrel. Further, because Tehran suffers from a lack of indigenous capital and technology to increase sustained production capacity and hence oil exports, this same coalition should convince the few oil companies willing to invest in Iran's upstream industry to put their efforts on hold.

Finally, because Tehran lacks access to foreign financial markets and American banks view investing in Iran as too risky, its only hope is in European, and to a much lesser extent Asian, banks. The Trump administration should send a strong message to European and Asian banks that their access to U.S. capital markets will be endangered, if they float credits to Tehran in any form.

One might ask why Saudi Arabia, a nation that also depends heavily on oil revenues, would support a lower price. The answer is simple cost-benefit analysis. Blocking Iran's drive for regional hegemony is the kingdom's highest foreign policy priority. The Saudis are spending tens of billions of dollars attempting to stabilize nations such as Lebanon, Bahrain and Palestine and fighting wars in Yemen and Syria against Iranian destabilization efforts. Not only are the Saudis eager to shrink these expenditures, but with about $500 billion in foreign reserves and one of the cheapest oil extraction costs in the world, they can withstand lower petroleum prices for years if necessary. In short, the regime change that low oil prices would bring in Iran represents a vital foreign policy boon and overall financial savings over the mid to long-term for the kingdom.

Pakistan, China to trade using Chinese Currency

The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the country’s central banking authority, announced on 2 January that the country will henceforth be conducting all trade and investments with China in Chinese Yuan (CNY). This announcement came a day after the Tweet-slam by the United States (US) President Donald Trump who, in his first tweet of 2018, castigated Pakistan for its “deceit and lies” in fighting the war on terror in Afghanistan. He vowed that Pakistan will not get any aid from the US hereafter. This sent shock waves through Pakistan, forcing its prime minister to summon an emergency meeting to craft their response to the US President’s warning. Simultaneously, the US declared that it will withhold the $900 million towards the Coalition Support Fund and $255 million military assistance for 2016 to Pakistan for its “support” in fighting the war on terror.

……….

Some analysts have suggested that this decision by Pakistan is in direct response to the threat by the US to stop all aid flowing to it. While announcement of the decision by Pakistan might have been triggered by the US threat, it is clear that the subject was under active consideration of Pakistan authorities for some time. The decision to adopt Yuan for trade with China had been taken and announced by Pakistan more than 10 days ago. In fact, at the weekly media briefing on 21 December 2017, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman stated that Pakistan and China “will actively use bilateral currencies for the settlement of bilateral trade and investment (transactions) under the relevant arrangements.’’

……….

This is not a purely economic decision for China. More importantly, it is a powerful strategic and political weapon and a critical move to dethrone the US dollar as the preferred and dominant global reserve currency and thus chip away at the US economic and political pre-eminence in the world. This is part of China’s strategy to assume its presumed place as a global superpower. The process commenced soon after the international economic meltdown in 2007-08.

I first joined online communities about 15 years ago. If you weren't around to see the internet in those days then you missed one hell of a time. And, I'm sad to say, you probably won't see anything like it for a long time. Back then the narrative wasn't controlled. In fact, there wasn't a narrative at all. The internet was a complete free-for-all shitshow. What happened? Part of it was the inevitable life cycle of communities and the other part was a cultural shift. I'll come back to this in a moment.

Today it's almost impossible to go anywhere on the internet without entering a hugbox. Even communities that were formed to escape censorship eventually degenerate into circle-jerks in which only acceptable opinions are allowed. Is this beginning to sound familiar?

Let me talk for a second about what it was like 15 years ago. The internet as a whole was like a vast untamed continent. The internet was an escape from the conformity of real life. Outside the internet the range of acceptable opinions was very small because those were the only opinions around. But then the internet happened. Anyone with a dial-up connection could create a page on a free webhosting site and post whatever content they wished no matter how unpopular or offensive. People created flash games in which you clubbed seals. Why? Because we were free. And fuck anyone who didn't like it.

After a while a few big online communities established themselves. These communities formed around a mutually shared interest. This could be almost anything. A video game, a political ideology, a tv show, whatever. Later, the community grew based on user-generated content and discussion. Think about that for a second. The real value in these communities was created from the bottom-up. This fact becomes important when we realize why they inevitably fall apart. I'll get to that in a bit.

So, we had these communities forming and growing. And the internet was becoming more popular, which meant this vast untamed continent was now being populated by the same conformist people that existed outside the internet. Eventually a clique forms within the community. And this clique wants to get rid of tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Part 3: Exodus

We now arrive at the most difficult part. How do we create thriving communities?

Let us imagine the hour has struck. The mods have abused their authority and the exodus has begun. What are the first steps to be taken?

It begins by recognizing that communities grow from the bottom up. If you give creative people the right platform to create content they will eventually come. And that content will attract those who contribute to discussions and form the core of a community. These people are the 10% upon which every community needs to keep going. The remaining 90% are lurkers who rarely engage or contribute but nonetheless consider themselves a part of this community and whose presence can make the platform profitable for site owners. Every group has a role to play.

But the freedom to create and discuss must be protected. Let's imagine the foundations of our community exist. We have a platform, we have users creating content, and people are engaging and collaborating via discussions. Things are pretty good. But now someone new shows up. This newfag is offended by one of our pepes. They don't like the fact that this pepe is a popular symbol for Group X. The newfag wants us to ban all mention of this pepe because it will derail discussions. What do we do?

There is only one thing we can do. We make fun of the newfag until he shuts up or leaves. If he leaves we lose nothing. The alternative is to institute new rules in our community to "protect board quality." This is bad for two reasons. First, the user creating content will become angry his content is now banned. Second, mods will have more work to do. Since no mod can be available 24/7 this will make it necessary to promote more mods. Now a clique has formed and it's only a matter of time before the mods stop "protecting board quality" and begin banning whatever they don't like.

But what's to stop mods from abusing their powers? Or, what if the mods secretly spam threads and disrupt discussion in order to drum up support for new rules? The only way Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

8ch use to be a really great place. I remember when I first came to this site during the First Exodus.Everyone was angry and sad from Moot's betrayal. Everyone knew he was a faggot, but most weren't expecting things to have gotten this bad. Eventually I heard rumors of two different image boards that people seem to gravitate towards: 8ch and Masterchan. Masterchan was pretty quickly written off as a honeypot as most would move to escape towards 8ch. Hot Wheels was a real cool dude back then. He cared a lot about the community back then. It felt like we had a golden age at the time. Post quality was high, their was a general sense of optimism that in spite of the betrayal that we would one day surpass 4chan.

It's hard for me to place a time on this, but I would say a year and a half after the First Exodus the exodus is when the cracks started to form. It was when GG was still a thing , but during the shitshow between Acidman and /ggrevolt/. This was when I started noticing bits of corruption floating about, but it seemed mostly contained to GG which at that point was basically dying down. /pol/ also started showing a very noticeable decline around this time. /pol/ use to have a wide variety of discussion. I remember seeing not just NatSocs, but Libertarians, AnCaps, Reactionaries, NRx guys, Monarchist, classical liberals, and even dirty commies from time to time. I blame Moot for what happened to /pol/. That whole cuck thing he pulled where he fucked 4chan /pol/ drove all the retarded posters to 8chan and some of them never left. It doesn't help that Imkampy got in charge. That megalomaniac turkroach is a big part of the problem that plagues /pol/.

/pol/ took a turn for the worse. At this point, if you aren't a NatSoc then you are not welcome. Opposing views will either be removed by the mods or you'll get dog-piled by dozens of users calling you the buzzword of the week. It wasn't always like this. I wouldn't even say that it was the NatSocs that were the issue since their were some NatSocs who intelligently debated back then and didn't resort to just calling you a kike when you disagreed with them. They will deny that they are an echo chamber now. /pol/ use to be one of my favorite boards. I won't even get into other shit I've seen like /v/'s board owner issues. To think that it only took like 2-3 years for 8Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

good post.

This is a chatlog between imkampfy and tryptamine from 2014. the posting quality was high in those days because not all mods wanted another echo chamber. eventually those mods quit or were kicked out and today we have an alex jones-tier trump propaganda board.

>getting fucked over by mods again

Haha, the problem with modding is that almost nobody who would be good at it wants to actually do it because being a good mod is utterly boring and unrewarding, a total shit job. It only becomes a fun job when you start abusing your power, which is exactly what every fucker that actually wants to become a mod has in the back of their mind. It's that authoritative asshole that actually applies to be a fucking janitor so they can become mods one day. Those are the same assholes that want to become police officers or prison guards. Complete human scum.

It's not that the job corrupts. It's that only corrupted people are attracted to the job in the first place. Kill all mods.

Of course there's always a few good natured unicorns among the general scum but they are always the first to get thrown out for having principles and moral character.

I don't see the appeal of /monster/ anymore. It's a constant argument of which fetishes should be banned and which shouldn't, whats considered furry and whats not, etc. It's nothing but vanilla central now and it's fucking annoying because it wasn't like that. I blame Aux.

"How is it that the socialist parties of a year ago are now the leading parties of austerity?"

"All of the parties that used to be on the left, who somehow, in their attempt to criticize industrial employers, they don't realize that the industrial employers as well as labor are being parasitized by the financial sector."

"All you have to realize is that there's an immense amount of money coming out of the U.S. government and Wall Street and the Ford Foundation to somehow turn the socialist parties and the left away from what it was 100 years ago. From having an economic program to criticize the rentiers, to tax economic rent, to tax real estate, to put banking into the public domain… all of a sudden to make the focus non-economic topics. Such as you see in the books downstairs. A lot of these are cultural, sexual, the one thing you're not going to see is a discussion of finance. So finance has successfully parasitized most of the left-wing political parties as it has parasitized the industrial economy itself."

Because the "moderate" left are just the vanguards for a system that is completely reprehensible, and for groups that aren't worth shit. The more hardline types that aren't totally suicidal "maoist third worlders", have to face the fact that Marx's writings apply much more to the socioeconomic situation of Otto Von Bismark's time than our own. Hence why Zizek's essentially a crypto-reactionary. This leads to the post-left, which comes into increasing parity with the far-right.

So this board has been up and running for over a month now. In that time I've added quite a bit of content and intend to add more. Like I said before, if we get lots of traffic - great. If not, great. Ultimately my only goal is to have a free speech board where none of us has to worry about getting banned for simply telling the truth. Can't do that anywhere else.

While my plans for the board remain the same, I have some serious problems with 8chan. According to official board stats we had 24 posts on 1/19. I counted about 5. So the board stats are clearly broken. In addition, the top boards on 8chan have inflated user numbers which keep smaller boards off the main page. Originally I planned to claim a dead board but site admins never responded to my emails. Furthermore, after taking a long look at site history, it is now apparent 8chan began datamining in late 2015 despite Jim denying it. There is also the disturbing fact that someone has the power to delete posts on boards without such deletions appearing in the board logs. Ron was asked about this last month but never responded.

So where does that leave us? I'm going to continue building this board, adding content, and trying to attract users. But, if practical, I will also look into alternatives for us.

EDIT: Yesterday, 1/21/ site admins DID respond to my emails. I'll give an update on this later.

Anon it was probably poor word choice on his part, but he meant that as "You won't get banned for simply speaking your mind on politics." Like you would on /leftypol/ or /pol/.

Government Shutdown A Year Into Trump's Presidency

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump campaigned as the master deal-maker, a guy who could come to Washington, knock a few heads and get the government working again. But on the anniversary of Trump's inauguration, America awoke to a government shutdown — a dramatic testament to dysfunction, partisan gridlock and failed leadership.

Turkey Launches Attack On Northern Syria

Turkish war planes have launched air strikes on Kurdish positions in northern Syria, in a move likely to cause tensions with the US. Turkey wants to oust these Kurdish fighters from Syria's Afrin region, which lies near its southern border. It considers them a terrorist group. But some were US allies in the battle against the Islamic State group. Turkey had been shelling the area for two days, ahead of its declaration of a military operation on Saturday.

Zombie retailers close stores nationally, hoping for an online afterlife

Among the bankruptcies of 2017 were those of American Apparel, BCBG Max Azria, Rue21 and Wet Seal. Many were due to declining sales and a heavy debt load as the combined burdens were too much to bear. “Most of the retailers that are struggling still have loyal core consumers,” Brown said. “They just don’t have enough of them. I think that if a brand is a household name, or if it has a positive reputation or brand cachet, it will be a candidate for this (digital focus).

Erdogan: Operation in Syria's Afrin has begun

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday that the operation in the border town of Afrin would be followed by a push in the northern town of Manbij.

Turkey considers Syria's Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing, the YPG, "terrorist groups" with ties to the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged a decades-long fight inside Turkey.

The US has previously armed the YPG, viewing it as the most effective ground force in tis fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) armed group.

Following the start of Turkey's air campaign, the defence ministry of Russia, which controls the airspace over Afrin, said it was pulling back soldiers that had been deployed near the city.

It said in a statement that "to prevent possible provocations, to exclude the threat to life and health of Russian servicemen, the operational group of the Center for Reconciliation of warring parties and military police in the Afrin area is relocated to the Tell-Adjar area".
