This is a thread for giving feedback and complaints about moderation actions.

Because there are so many new Volunteers right now, we are bound to hit a few bumps in the next week or so. If you see a thread deleted or moderated in a way that you think is unfair, please post ITT, preferably with evidence or a detailed description of it. This won't guarantee a reversal, but it will help bring it to my attention. Volunteers who turn out to be repeat offenders and refuse to learn will have their accounts removed. You can also monitor our actions here:

https://8ch.net/log.php?board=leftypol

https://8ch.net/bans.html

As well, Volunteers who can't decide what to do about something should post ITT to get feedback before acting.

Hello and welcome to /leftypol/. Please check the board tags for related boards. These are our groups:

FAQ:

>How can you call yourselves leftist politically incorrect?

/leftypol/ posters are allowed to voice opinions that offend liberals, SJWs, and so on. All sects of leftism are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums would tend to ban. However, this was only a minor consideration in the naming of /leftypol/. Since the concept is simply a leftist version of /pol/, the entire name of /pol/ was retained.

>I'm not a leftist can I post here?

/leftypol/ welcomes debate from non-leftists. Non-leftists frequently come here to ask questions and raise topics for debate. Board moderation here is more focused on maintaining a good board index, so non-leftists have to be on better behavior as OP than they do as participants in someone else's thread. If you aren't b8ing or shitposting, your thread is likely to stay up.

>Are you liberals? Are you SJWs? Do you like Obama? Are you all Zionists???

Official /leftypol/ reading list

In this thread, various members of the community have listed recommended literature regarding leftism, i.e. economics, political theory, philosophy and other subjects related to leftism. Some recommendations are for starters, or for those in advanced literature.

/Leftypol/ has many ideologies, Marxist, Anarchist, Left-com, etc. so there is a variety of different literature with different viewpoints.

Reading literature is recommended, as it helps you understand leftism better and is much better than reading Wikipedia synopses.

This is a really fucking stupid meme, dont do this. Lsd tolerance builds extremely fast. After taking it once you'll need to wait 3 days for the tolerance to go down to half and 7 days for it to go down to baseline. Taking it in hourly intervals will literally do nothing.

This applies for most psychadelics. Do not redose during a trip, it will not do anything.

This'll sound a bit wanky, but really - they do a great job of twinning sincere commitment to making the world better while being equally sincere in being self-critical.

Its a little sad that we have to look to a piece of paper to find our "rights".

>genes

Human or even animal behavior is somewhat more complicated matter.

In fact there is whole different science for that.

And as far as I know it's universally agreed that altruism in human behavior is natural and is very reason for civilization.

Many discoveries of archeology proved that mammoth hunters took care about elders and injured, which made no sense economically. For example one prehistoric man lived for years after lost his leg and was carried around by tribe.

I guess he was surrounded by genetically selfish people and lived on government handouts.

Also contrary to popular beliefs made popular by porky propaganda our hairy ancestors didn't eat each other (or at least it wasn't any more common than today).

Kropotkin had flaws in his theory thanks to its humanist arguments, but the same can be said of Dawkins.


 No.1524700

>>1524371

What are you talking about? The two theories have nothing to do with each other. The selfish gene idea is the idea that genes themselves are "selfish" in their quest for propagation. The idea does not promote a Randian view of nature where every individual creature is self-maximizing. The idea of the selfish gene and of mutual aid are not in conflict.

Redpill me on psychoanalysis. I've always assumed it was nothing more than a free-form construction of pseudo-psychological narratives, like they told me back in psych 101, but some of y'all seem to think otherwise. I've only recently abandoned the notion that the scientific method is an immaculate route to objective truth. I read Freud's "The Interpretation of Dreams" as a kid but not much more than that. Hit me up with some arguments, links, and literature. I'm unlikely to read anything over 600 pages thooo.

Upstanding bloke.. I tip my hat to you.

As for OP,

Patanjali Yoga Sutras

Yoga is actually the branch of orthodox Indian philosophy that deals with the mind. Western psychology is stuck at the point of getting people socially adapted. Actually we think that's of such prime importance that we allow drugs to replace the real human effort necessary to achieve social stability.

But society / moral / rational thought is just one plane of thought. It's good to get situated on that level, but that should just be a base camp for going higher. There is nothing but your own mind. Never stop exploring.

Idk, I follow Timothy Leary's 8 circuit model of the mind, elucidated by way of Robert Anton Wilson in Prometheus Rising. This makes the most evolutionary sense. You can also check out Sri Aurobindo who is in a similar vein imho.

Europoor lawfag here. Had a lecture in American constitutional law once. I know there are some nuts who go by legislative intent for reading a constitution drafted in the 18th century. So first of all I wouldn't do that.

Judging from my country's own bourgeois constitution there's always room for a leftist reading when you take constitutionally guaranteed rights literally. E.g. pursuit of happiness -> equal opportunity

He didn't genocide his "own people" in his own views but the "New People" consisting of "cosmopolitan" urban-dwellers that he contrasted with the idealized rural "Old People".

The New People isn't really an ethnic group, which is why some historian are wary of calling their elimination a genocide because it doesn't fit their definition of the term.

The Khmer Rouge did also attack minorities in a "classically" genocidal manner, though. They basically wiped out half of the Chams, among other groups.

I also hope Communalists on this board know that everything I said was meant in good faith and is meant to be read in only the most comradely tone. I actually like Bookchin quite a bit, and think Marxists should read Anarchists and Communalists, if not just to realize they aren't Anarchists or Communalists themselves.

>Early Christianity was very much a precurosor to later socialist and anarchist movements. They were voluntary and autonomous collectives that not only worshiped but met each others needs, in contrast to the roman state that merely collected taxes, suppressed disorder and waged war.

I'm well aware of this connection, particularly it's connection to Marx through Hegel. Hegel's entire definition of Freedom is, after all, based on these early radically egalitarian Christian communities, communities where all social realtions, supposedly, were based on Love. And while I find this very romantic and appealing, Marx and Engel's critique of this Utopian strain is obviously one of the core motivators of this entire disagreement. If these sorts of communities constituted Dual Power then we would have to concede that the whole 60's New Left "hippy commune" craze was also an effective form of Dual Power, seeing as how it was these early Christians they wished to emulate.

>Marxism is deterministic for stating that primitive accumulation had to lead to class society

You only find Marxism deterministic because you're interpreting everything I'm saying as strictly structuralist. I'm not denying that superstructure can't effect base, that's a fundamentally anti-Marxist, almost a form of economic mysticism, maybe closer to the way ancaps view reality, as if Capital is a conscious entity with agency. Superstructure, however, is subordinate to base, and base creates the limits of what we can imagine, even when we try to imagine the past, not just the Communist future. Political economic realities create class, classes are not created because certain people get it into theirr head that they need to oppress other people, this is why 80% of anarchist class analysis is so retarded, because they basically fall for the Liberal memes of "crony capitalism", "bankers", "corruption", and "a few bad apples", your assuming far too much about people's inner psychologies, at the end of the day our participation in class society, whether as oppressor or oppressed is a highly unconscious one, this is why Marx has a tendency to describPost too long.
