Old thread reached post limit. Let's start with something fresh. The fucking captcha expires by the time the PDF uploads and it won't disappear, next post is the file.

>Honeybees make decisions collectively–and democratically. Every year, faced with the life-or-death problem of choosing and traveling to a new home, honeybees stake everything on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. In fact, as world-renowned animal behaviorist Thomas Seeley reveals, these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to collective wisdom and effective decision making. A remarkable and richly illustrated account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees.

>In the late spring and early summer, as a bee colony becomes overcrowded, a third of the hive stays behind and rears a new queen, while a swarm of thousands departs with the old queen to produce a daughter colony. Seeley describes how these bees evaluate potential nest sites, advertise their discoveries to one another, engage in open deliberation, choose a final site, and navigate together–as a swirling cloud of bees–to their new home. Seeley investigates how evolution has honed the decision-making methods of honeybees over millions of years, and he considers similarities between the ways that bee swarms and primate brains process information. He concludes that what works well for bees can also work well for people: any decision-making group should consist of individuals with shared interests and mutual respect, a leader's influence should be minimized, debate should be relied upon, diverse solutions should be sought, and the majority should be counted on for a dependable resolution.

>An impressive exploration of animal behavior, Honeybee Democracy shows that decision-making groups, whether honeybee or human, can be smarter than even the smartest individuals in them.

Why was the thread by the former Trump supporter anchored so quickly? Poster didn't seem to be arguing in bad faith despite being a liberal and seemed to at least want to have some conversation, there was definitely potential for dialogue there, perhaps exposing the poster to new ideas.

/leftypol/ seriously needs to step up its game in creating informative content that can be used for reusable refutations of /pol/ and other anticommunist propaganda. However, most people are not graphic designers and don't know how to make infographics that are attractive, readable, and well-organized (myself included). In order to make good graphic designs accessible to the wider /leftypol/ population, I'm calling on all artists on /leftypol/ to help contribute to a free and open source infographic tool kit and design guide. We should make it in the .xcf file format compatible with GIM, or Inkscape so that it is usable by the widest range of people for free, and doesn't phone home to Adobe.

https://www.gimp.org/

https://inkscape.org/en/

Here is a starter file:

As well, I intend to use a custom CSS for this board. Our goals should be for it to be unobtrusive and simple, and for it to convey the same information that the default CSS does. People are welcome to suggest CSS rules for /leftypol/ to make it look better.

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 on the left are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums might 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.

Don't install Ubuntu if you want to be serious about Anti-Capitalism. If you want to run exclusively Free Software run any of these

https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.en.html

I would recommend Trisquel because it's based on Ubuntu, so you can find better help online.

Alternatively you could also try PureOS although i haven't really tested it

If you don't care about Free Software you can use something like Mint (although the default security settings are shit)

If you want a more minimal Distro (uses less resources but sometimes harder to use)

try Parabola or Gentoo (only when you are familiar with the terminal)

On most linux distros you install Software via the Package Manager, that means you are going to either use a GUI Program like an App Store to install Software or you type this into the Terminal

sudo apt install <Software>

(Example for Trisquel)

You update your OS and Software the same way or by typing

sudo apt update (updates the list of software your os knows) and then

sudo apt upgrade (updates the software to the newest version)

On Linux it's all about choice, so you can for choose your Desktop Environment.

Gnome is a bit bloated but is very Easy to use

KDE is a good Windows replacement which is very configuravle

Xfce is less resource intensive as the above but still very costumizeable

Lxqt s when you have no ram or cpu cycles to spare

i3 is a pretty good tiling window manager (which means it automatically manages where your windows are) it's also very keyboard focused.

These are just a few, there are many more to choose from.

In you wet dreams maybe, on Ubuntu you can't even install a virus without admin priviledges or some hard exploitation. On windows a normal user just clicks on a program (because you have to download these from the web on windows) and the whole system is compromised (glancing over the fact thar windows itself isn't compromised already).

Nobody said Linux doesn't have Problems, and looking at it from the view of "it has to ne better to be used" is bullshit, because the Philosophy behind should be enough reason for People to use it.

And the fact that for many People it is useable and in a lot of cases better than Windows even though it doesn't have a multi billion dollar coorperstion backing it is enough for me to use it. And with more People using it and more support coming in, things are only going to get better.

As it stands, windows is still a spyware infested piece of bloatware that forces the users to give their data to random People and disrupts their work for forced updates which just introduce more bugs.And did i mention that it costs 100 Dollars while Linux is FREE

>so if the feds came to your door, they could theoretically track your entire internet search history, even if you have deleted your browser's information.

Or they can simply call your internet provider and he will give them all your browsing history. How long they store data varies based on country, in my country it's at least 6 months. Your OS choice won't change this fact.

Have you ever wrote piece of software used by someone else than you and your university teacher? Not gathering user behaviour data is simply bad practice. Thinking that NSA is indexing whole your hard drive looking for "enemies of state" is simply paranoia.

Gender is a spook not a spectrum. We should be working to oppose idpol on the basis that they are spooked not on the basis that they detract from class consciousness.

Understanding that they are arguing for collectively held social understandings of conventions rather than creating a direct material influence would convince more people to join the class struggle.

The fact that the ruling class influences and spreads the social relations between genders, races etc. This emphasises a need to focus on the material means that enables them to do so rather than the social relations themselves.

To what extent is the DPRK a democracy? I know there is supposed to be a system of "proletarian" democracy where candidates are nominated by some council and then confirmed with a yes/no vote by the public. Does it work like that in practice, or are candidates more or less chosen by the party in a top-down sort of way?

Is their system of workplace democracy in practice in most workplaces or is it limited to only a few collective farms?

How much power does KJU himself have? Does he have close to unlimited power (the way it's usually assumed by westerners)?

Is the DPRK justice system as bad as it's portrayed? Are the conditions in the "prison camps" much worse than the prisons in most other countries? Do they have an unusually large prison population? Are people sent to prison for simply criticizing the government? Do the people in the DPRK have rights like freedom of speech?

Greetings, Comrades!

I never really got into the DPRK. All I knew was, that mostly everything we hear about it in the west are blatant lies or exaggerations. I pretty much left it at that and didn't bother to get to know it any further. But after I got into China (A state I also dismissed as revisionist and Capitalist before I educated myself) I wanted to get into it. I appreciate their efforts for implementing workplace democracy. I know that they have Workers councils that manage the economy and their workplaces (just like in other socialist states) but I can't seem to like Juche and the idea that the masses need to have a leader wich represents them, I also don't like their form of leadership wich is held inside the family. I can be wrong of course but this is all I managed to get so far. I would love for someone to correct me or tell me how things are, thank you!
