Hi. I'm the new BO of /freedu/. I would like to revive the board on the lines of what it always has been; a hub of leftist knowledge and a means of free education. However, I've noticed that the board only has five banners. I'd like to at least double it. If any of you are interested, feel free to provide some banners.

Due to 8chan's limitations, banners cannot exceed 500 kb, must be a PNG, JPG, or GIF, and also must be exactly 300x100 pixels. That is 300 pixels wide, by 100 pixels tall.

I started reading Thomas More's Utopia recently and was wondering if we could get a thread going about left wing literature. Anyone else read this and have thoughts on the book? Can it be considered proto-socialist?

Honestly anything worth reading or watching is usually leftist at its core. Why? Because the truth sets people free.

Care to prove him wrong?

After 1989 you arent allowed to use the "But all other forms of Socialism/Communism Collapsed" Argument



No, he's right. Every state he listed is now gone. However, ML(M) states are simply better at defending themselves. Figure out how to defeat revisionism and ML(M) is near invincible. If Mexico was half-way competent the Zapatistas would be wiped out. They aren't exactly accomplishing much as is. Rojava had no choice but to ally with the US to defeat ISIS and now look at them.



>and now look at them

What happened?

Just because they lost one Canton dosent mean the Whole Project collapsed/is collapsing

Thats Literally how their system was built



Be honest. It's not looking good. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I am



You must be young.

It's waaaaay better now than it was in the 90s and 00s. In America at least.

The American leftist tradition has been poisoned by anarkiddies and trots for the better part of a century now. It's only in recent times that proper Marxism has gotten its due.

I know that its likely that the only house I will ever own will be the one I inherit. I guess one day ill just kill myself if revolution never comes and I am too old to be of any use.



But if a socialist revolution comes you will not be able to own a house even theoreticly. Markets may drop to zero but you would theoreticly still be richer then in a socialist/communist stae. Those who never felt it on themselves poorly feel the difference. Let's scrape the bottom of the barrel: a homeless bum. Suppose he finds a bottle of liquor. In a capitalist society the bottle is now his property(oversimplified). In a socialist society it is a crime to be homeless and not working and a crime to appropriate socialist wealth aka a state owned bottle of liquor.

Why is the western left so fucking focused on racial minority, LGBT, and female issues? Why does the force that's supposed to defend and protect the interests of the working class ignore the plurality of it, and often just ignore the labor struggle in general? What happened to the radicalness of the left that believed a worker was a worker, everything else was irrelevant? If we're just talking about identitarian issues, I don't deny that identity-based oppression exists against these groups, but identity-based oppression also exists against men and whites (obviously not in the /pol/tard sense), yet when leftists (and these are genuine anti-capitalism leftists) talk about sexism and racism they never refer to that. It just seems like a lack of integrity and a fetishization of minority groups who are often kinda irrelevant to the wider class struggle, and in extreme cases it seems like genuine bigotry against white cishet males.

Also for those who lack reading comprehension, I'm not concern trolling or advocating for white male identity politics, I'm genuinely asking what's the fucking deal with modern leftist culture and ideology.



>What happened to the radicalness of the left that believed a worker was a worker, everything else was irrelevant?

It never existed



>Why is the western left so fucking focused on racial minority, LGBT, and female issues?

America started it because being a communist or socialist would litterally get you arrested or killed, so they went to things that weren't explicitly anti-capitalist but had bourgeois supporters. They then forced this on western europe where they also suppressed communism, althrough not to the same extend.

And blaming a group in power that more often than not is the majority (straight native males) (apart from straight native females, of course) is a good way to agitate a group without running a risk of some kind of genocide (like the boers in south africa run the risk of, seeing that they are a tiny minority in south africa).


The working class, at least where I am from, is not as easily recognized as 50 years ago. The exploitation and the opression of the workers is not as explicit and obvious as earlier, and because of that the mainstream left has turned to other "oppressed minorities".

That's at least how I see it in my particular case.

Nope. Socialism is democratic worker control of the means of production. Go find some Nazis or NazBols (or hell, Monarchists if you can find 'em) to hang out with.

So what now? Presumably t*rkey isn't about to annex Afrin, so I guess they're going to have to hand it over to the various groups which make up the TFSA, who will likely start fighting amongst themselves over exactly who gets what, which would be the signal for the YPG to take it all back. The question then is, will Erdogan re-enter Syria to bail them out again?



Sinjar is that part of the Iraq, which is controlled by SDF.

Western media constantly fucks this one up claiming they are (right-wing, therefore good guys) Peshmerga.



They brought Islamism to a part of Syria, where it was never present to begin with.

Soon, when everything in the West will blow up left and right, Afrin will be associated with terrorist breeding ground.



They're not going to officially annex it, just like they didn't officially annex North Aleppo, but just like North Aleppo it will be under their control and they aren't going to leave it. t*rkish will probably start being taught in the schools while "refugees" (the families of TFSA fighters) will start "returning".


The Sinjar Alliance is not part of the SDF and the territory they control was formerly defacto under the KRG but is now dejure under the Iraqi Government. The TSK would still have to go through either Rojava or the KRG to attack it.



Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says t*rkey will drive the YPG from the Syrian border and attack Manbij if t*rkey is unable to reach an agreement that they want with the US.

The users must seize the means of moderation. That is to say, moderators and administrators need to be held accountable by users. But how would one do that effectively and for that matter, why is such a trivial melodramatic issue of mod/admin abuse worth a leftist's time?

The Internet is NOT a haven of free speech, free love, or freedom from government oppression, so long as mods and admins are not held in check by an ethical powerful force. An effective union protects honesty, promotes loving bonds among members, and directly opposes oppression. We need YESTERDAY, a union among users with the express purpose of protecting all users' universal, inalienable, self-given rights to free speech, free love, and freedom from abuse of power.

Divided, we cannot effectively pressure an abusive digital hierarchy, and thus we are enslaved by it. Having to hold back our true words. Having to bend to unjust authority. Having to feel alone in this abusive digital hellscape. But united, we are able to stand up for our rights and conquer all opposition. We can argue against the abuse, document the abuse, propagandize against and ultimately protest any abuse we face. You aren't alone. You have me. You have your fellow User Class. And we will have you, if you are willing.

Thus I not only propose, but declare the Internet under the watchful eye of the International Internet Users Union; a union of users and a digital country.

Our Discord is live and we will be spreading our social media outreach in the months to come. If you would like to learn more about your user rights, unify with your fellow user class, or indulge your curiosity, join us here: https://discord.gg/6SyxUMm

Here's a fact 100% of the world's population has overlooked (excluding myself):

If all the users in the world unionized and actively identified as one international nation, not a single government on this planet would be as powerful as that union.

I'm just promoting we for now use this logic to hold all digital governments accountable (websites, servers, apps, digital organizations).

But it's only a matter of time before this is taken to its logical conclusion of total world unionization.

The best part: this strategy is completely legal (in the average democratic country) provided you stick only to free speech and protest and never engage in acts of hacking or raiding.

Hence, I take this IIUU very seriously and have meticulously thought out our constitution and government structure. We have three primary departments: Public Relations, Justice, and Activism.

You can find us on Discord or Facebook, but ironically Facebook may very well be one of our future protesting targets taking into account some of their methods.



>Hence, I take this IIUU very seriously and have meticulously thought out our constitution and government structure

You should probably leave that up to the users.

>You can find us on Discord or Facebook

Those are both really horrible platforms. I can understand having a presence on fedbook, but it shouldn't be the primary site, and discord just shouldn't be used.

Also please don't redditspace. It looks ugly and takes up an unnecessary amount of space.

For the past two decades it has been left up to 100% of the Internet's users to set up a Constitution and governing structure for an effective users union that was never formed. I am the user who is finally doing that work on behalf of the rest of the users on the Internet who failed to do so prior. If they want to revise it after the fact, they're free to do so. But in lieu of a foundation, I naturally have had to make one myself. Karl Marx did not make his manifesto from a suggestion box; he came up with it on his own based on his knowledge and experience, and then got other people on-board.


As for Discord and Facebook, an organization cannot exist without members. Those are where members can be found and activities can be performed. The IIUU plays with its cards face up and thus has no fear of the government surveillance it stands against. We are not hipsters. We do not fear mainstream means for our ends. So long as the users are standing up for their rights, that's what's important.


Also, such spacing I use chiefly on Discord. Reddit comment sections are a mess to scroll through and the admins should've cleaned that shit up a long time ago. I find 8chan formatting to not be much of a pleasure to read either.



Unless you're also going to pressure the owners of the platforms themselves, your union isn't going to get very far.

Imperialism was ok for those who profited from it indeed. Humans are egoist by nature.

Devine rule is a meme just as saying Mao is loved by all the people and therefore can rule with an iron fist.

Feudalism was a primitive system so the highest noble reformers removed it. Those who failed to got fucked by revolution (Tsarist Russia).

Authority is ok. In Germany and Austria-Hungary and Britain absolutistic monarchy was long gone in the 20th century though. You should have paid attention in history class.

Guilds fade automatically if the state takes control and citizens are allowed to run businesses by themselves freely with state approval.

Inbreeding died out it is a fact. Habsburg-Lorraine and Hohenzollern stoll live as you might know. The Spanish Habsburg line died out because of inbreeding you moron.

And yes. Widely accepted propaganda is still propaganda and not a historical fact. Or would you believe in Aryan superiority in Nazi Germany too if you had lived there at the time because it was widely accepted as a fact too there? Oh. Yes according to your sheep logic you would have.




At the start he mentions how someone complained his videos where just him reading excerpts from books over some music and I sort of have to agree with that statement. Why make videos when you dont use the video format at all? Why not just have a blog? I also think the most uninteresting videos on lefty-youtube are response videos. There is something just inherently circlejerky about these stupid e-celeb debates / feuds. Other that thats its ok I guess.

>ignore historical facts like Soviets raping and plundering just as the Wehrmacht did and that war criminals also were enslaved by them

Tu quoque. Besides, this also implies that nazi genocide and plunder was somehow a reaction to the bestial bolsheviks, when in reality what you described only happened after the nazis had been rampaging through eastern Europe. With certain exceptions like Katyn, which involved taking out political and class enemies, as opposed to the explicit genocidal overtures of the General Government and the Nazi occupation, which from the beginning called for the eradication of the Polish people. (And was carried out in great detail)

The idea that the red army was "just as bad" as the nazis is a fabrication.

> It's all their fault that Hitler came to their country and rose to power with lies and trickery while the entire world watched!!!

>They did nothing to stop him!!! (oh wait they did but the left got murdered by the Nazis)

As you said those that did were either jailed, exiled, or executed. But what about those that stood on the sidelines? Those that condoned or profited off it? What about the settlers in the east that forced peasants out of their homes? Or all those petites and industrialists that willingly employed forced labor? Or all those that saw their neighbors, fellow workers, friends and other "undesirables" carried off, or repressed, and said nothing?

I won't argue that they were evil; they weren't. Even if they believed every bit of it. They were looking out for their own self-interest. (Like everyone else) Hell, I'm not even sure that I would have done any different. But unfortunately for them, it didn't turn out the way they expected. Tough luck.
