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.

I read a research paper the other day that was the source of a recently propagandized statistic about how Chinese have positive feelings towards the new social credit *system* (not score), and I was disturbed the massive category error the author had made where they insisted to put Sesame Credit and social credit under the same name.

For those who don't know, Sesame Credit is an opt-in rewards program managed by Alibaba that has no legal basis and cannot punish you in any way, it is simply design to encourage you to use Alibaba services for discounts. It's a shoppers rewards card.

The social credit system is a "system" for transparently and effectively enforcing laws that already exist. So in one famous example, fare evasion on a train can get you banned from riding trains for a certain number of days. You do not lose points on a score, nor do you get punished in other ways. You just get put on the train blacklist. That IS social credit, it is not AI-driven invasive social control, or a technologic panopticon. It's enforcing the rules, which exist for good reasons, and it no wonder Chinese think it's a good idea.

The reason this is problematic is becuase there is no effort by most people tasked with informing USians about China that cares what the social credit system is, instead they come with this one two setup: There is a black mirror-esque score in China, and most Chinese support it. It's incredibly fertile ground for racist theories about the oriental mind to flourish.

I tried really hard to get better at conversations a few years ago when I got back to college and had to overcome the damage made by years of social anxiety and self-imposed isolation.

The obvious advice is: the more you practice the easier it gets. Besides that, listening to conversational podcasts helped me a lot, because as I listened to them I subconsciously learned about how to keep conversations going, tell stories, and things like that. Having nothing in common with normies to talk about was a huge problem for me, and I started making a conscious effort to learn a little bit about everything. Just watching a few youtube videos about subjects you couldn't possibly care less about, but that people seem to enjoy, can go a long way. You don't have to be an expert on things, just know enough to know what questions to ask. As for everything else, I remember having to force myself to relax and make good eye contact as the anxiety of talking to people was killing me, but most of the other things you talk about are spontaneous. It becomes automatic as you practice.

Idk you might consider just practicing alone in front of a mirror until you get it right. You'll probably get some cowards mentally roasting you and maybe a couple patronizing idiots will try and 'help' but you will almost certainly get it down after a couple hours.

Also, Kim Il Sung himself wrote in With the Century:

>Around the time the song Star of Korea was being spread, my comrades changed my name and began to call me Han Byol … meaning "One Star". It was Pyon Tae U and other public-minded people in Wujiazi and such young communists as Choe Il Chon who proposed to change my name into Kim Il Sung. Thus I was called by three names, Song Ju, Han Byol and Il Sung. … I did not like to be called by another name. Still less did I tolerate the people extolling me by comparing me to a star or the sun; it did not befit me, [as a] young man. But my comrades would not listen to me, no matter how sternly I rebuked them for it or argued against it…. It was in the spring of 1931 when I spent some three weeks in prison, having been arrested by the warlords in Guyushu, that the name Kim Il Sung appeared in the press for the first time. Until that time most of my acquaintances had called me by my real name, Song Ju. It was in later years when I started the armed struggle in east Manchuria that I was called by one name, Kim Il Sung, by my comrades. These comrades upheld me as their leader, even giving me a new name and singing a song about me. Thus they expressed their innermost feelings.

This doesnt hold for all the left opposition though just the left SRs who were originally in coalition with the bolsheviks and then turned on them because of brest litovsk. Only left srs did wanton killings, though obviously kaplans attempt wasnt isolated i concede (on the other hand the assassinations had little overall impact). The other left opposition either kept their heads down, joined the samara govt supporting the constituent assembly or joined trade union opposition or eventually joined the antoniv and the greens. In most cases bolshevik repression and killing was way out of proportion to the threat and was counter productive. Also despite admirinf Lenin, his thinking himself indispensible to the success of revolution was egotistical and allowed a cult to spring up around him.

I know capitalism is mostly an impersonal force, but bear with me.

What's his endgame? In the USA and the world.

Wages are already depressed, social services are being cut/privatized, labor movements have been crushed by the state, and this is also reflected in how life expectancy for workers is flatlining or declining (in the US and UK). But it still seems like it isn't enough for these people.

What more does he want?

>Porky is trapped and there's no way out. The country is crumbling and falling behind in healthcare, education, infrastructure etc because of the massive bloated US military budget. If the US cuts military spending it'll hurt the defense contractors and the economy while also making the US look weak and inhibit the US empire from keeping its puppet states aligned to it. Continuing to increase military spending however will continue to drain much needed funds from spending on things that are actually important to the average American, like schools, hospitals and transportation, which will increase hostility to the ruling elite. Taxes will continue to rise on the middle and working class as they must foot the bill for the expensive upkeep of the military. Eventually the US will no longer be able to afford these massive military expenditures and will be challenged by an increasingly powerful China. Basically, Porky has no other options available and will continue digging his own grave.

This isn’t a problem for Porky, he’ll just move on to China, rinse and repeat. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to America after capital leaves, though I doubt that the people living their will find it pleasant.
