Hello, I am the new leader of /marx/.

I will continue the status quo: this board is for those who identify as Marxist-Leninist in some form, whether they uphold or otherwise identify with the Stalin-era USSR, the post-Stalin era, China under Mao, Albania under Hoxha, Cuba, the DPRK or whatever. Non-MLs are allowed to ask questions and the like.

I have a forum with a political forum area for registered users (although the forum itself is for forum games users think up and run.) If you want to get in private contact with me via PM, or if you just want to use the political forum area for whatever, feel free: http://eregime.org/index.php?act=idx

May Glorious Comrade Ismail's Glorious leadership be long and glorious!

Now the question is, should we ,and can we join the Union of Soviet Socialist Chans?


File: 1429460510203.jpg (165.88 KB, 426x663, 142:221, Enver Hoxha 1952.jpg)

Does it involve any obligations whatsoever? If so then probably not. I am fine with socialism on one Internet imageboard for now.


I miss white greentext


Yeah, white greentext worked better imo.


File: 1429541007353.jpg (118.67 KB, 451x490, 451:490, Enver Hoxha May 1979.jpg)



There was a temporary glitch or something that made the text color lame. Should have fixed itself by now.


Should clean up the banners up the top.

The inclusion of Unruhe is a bit much.


File: 1429560422957.jpg (280.54 KB, 791x576, 791:576, Hoxha 1945.jpg)


I figured it's tongue-in-cheek.



but anons have autism and wont realize it

pls remove it


File: 1429579460067.jpg (206.05 KB, 531x738, 59:82, Enver Hoxha 1941.jpg)


Done. Feel free to propose new ones in the banners thread.



we should add ###leftism### as a board tag


File: 1430471408353.jpg (44.34 KB, 828x465, 276:155, stalin with hoxha.jpg)




File: 1433075387191.jpg (87.03 KB, 413x351, 413:351, hulkhoxha.jpg)



For whatever reason the white text got reversed to the earlier, ugly color shortly after I became admin. I know how to work the mod control panel and such, but tampering with HTML stuff is a bit beyond me. If anyone knows how to make quoted text appear white, I will fix it.


File: 1437393296160.jpg (40.66 KB, 440x471, 440:471, hoxha partisans.jpg)

So yeah I finally fixed the quote text so that it is white once more.




A tipfag that's really god at making banners and does it for any board by the name of "Bannerfag" has grown some fame on /boards/, i think we should ask him



I doubt we can, /leftypol/ is the officail USSC politics board, however if we can get /anarcho/ to join too I'm sure we'd be accepted.





How's /marx/ going to react with the infinity next migration? Do you already have your password up and working? Will we not have to suffer from endless raids and no action cause the board have no leader?

This probably have been adressed already, if not it's alway nice to know the plans for the event.


File: 1452128673623.jpg (61.27 KB, 628x356, 157:89, Stalin 1938.jpg)


I'm still the board leader.


Hey Ismail why don't you engange with /leftypol/ anymore? The board coulr really use someone with your amount of knowledge again.


File: 1454870242736.jpg (65.99 KB, 533x800, 533:800, A bust of Joseph Stalin.jpg)


Because /marx/ exists and when I actually posted on /leftypol/ back in the day there was no debate, just memes. Like the closest thing I saw to a debate was when some guy claimed all pro-Hoxha people are Albanian IRL and want to genocide Serbs.

On here people ask questions and I answer them. I also answer questions people send me on RevLeft and eRegime.

Can you disprove that because it would explain a lot.


File: 1457745108730.jpg (231.19 KB, 553x746, 553:746, Enver Hoxha in 1944.jpg)


Well it can easily be disproved by the fact that there existed throughout the 1970s and 80s, and up to the present day, pro-Hoxha/Albanian parties across the world. Saying that everyone who ever supported the Albanian position was ethnically Albanian is silly.

The irony is that there really were and are virtually no non-Serb/Croat/Montenegrin/Macedonian "Titoists" in the world.


What can you tell me about George Orwell, especially regarding Animal Farm and 1984, both supposedly critics of the USSR?


File: 1464217137355.jpg (184.45 KB, 877x1042, 877:1042, 1954 GDR Stalin stamp.jpg)


Orwell was an anti-communist "socialist." His "socialism," by his own admission, was that of the Labour Party. He informed the British state of people he suspected of being "crypto-communists." He claimed that Paul Robeson, a prominent American civil rights figure in the 1930s and 40s, was "very anti-white." He called for the West to defend itself against a supposedly imminent Soviet invasion.

As literature "Animal Farm" and "1984" are blatantly un-Marxist works. Any book that can be effortlessly cited by conservatives, libertarians and Neo-Nazis clearly fails as socialist literature.

A good demolition of "1984" as a literary work in general was made by Isaac Asimov: http://www.newworker.org/ncptrory/1984.htm



/leftypol/ isnt that anti-/marx/, guys, just ask nicely and be willing to be open-minded.

also BO, why dont we have flags in this board?


File: 1465531898862.jpg (164.66 KB, 635x375, 127:75, Stalin and artists.jpg)


If people want flags, I can add them.



Please do comrade Ismail, and can we get some more posting going on here? Tbh the discussion is much higher than the generic left-liberal ideas of /leftypol/ and it would be good if, even with a core of 4-7 posters, we got a good discussion going.

On an unrelated note, can we make some picture threads or can you upload albums of pictures? I really like your socialist-realist collection of Soviet leaders and socialist life, would really like more. Speficially looking for the picture of the coat of arms of the USSR and also of all the Union republics.


File: 1465913665887.jpg (40.17 KB, 329x459, 329:459, Stalin was a great guy.jpg)


Feel free to make picture threads. I dunno how to make albums.

As for getting more posts, that's up to the people on this board.



Ok fair enough comrade should this weekend

Do you have that picture of the union republic flags like I requested though?



Comrade Ismail what are some of your further thoughts about Grover Furr? Some of his works have been good at refuting anti Soviet liberal nonsense, but a lot of it seems like hearsay and downright conspiracy theories. His work on Soviet liberation of Poland was good but then he turns around and said that stalin wanted to simply remove the Party from administration. I dont know how true that was or even how good it would have been. What are your thoughts? What is a critical Marxist analysis to take while reading him?


File: 1466260728533.jpg (66.2 KB, 599x410, 599:410, Soviet flags.jpg)


Furr is a member or sympathizer of the PLP, which defends Stalin but also has politics that others have half-jokingly called "Anarcho-Stalinist." I think in this case it rubs off of his writings on Stalin a little. That being said, all of Furr's writings are interesting.


lol, ismail from revleft?



That's him yeah.


Another lefty hugbox safe space board? Why don't you guys just go to reddit? Everyone who is vaguely right wing there gets banned.



>implying /pol/ isnt the biggest hugbox on 8chan

anything vaguely left wing there gets banned



Eh, not really.

Anything that could be bait gets bumplocked and you might get a 5 minute ban or something.

They typically keep up debate-oriented discussions as long as it isn't just "ebil racissss nazis XDD".

I mean hell, Rachposter is an insufferable faggot and he still isn't banned.


Quick question since the rules page is empty. How does the owner of this board plan to treat outsiders who are here solely to learn about marxism. Should we keep our status of not being cut from the same cloth on a down low, or should I not have to fear mentioning that I'm just hear purely to learn and my political opinions are completely different then most people on this board. Thanks for the answer in advance.

Thanks for the answer in advance.

If you're here to ask questions about Marxism or the USSR or whatever, ask away. Doesn't matter if you're a fellow Marxist or a liberal or a conservative or even a fascist, any questions will be answered.



Alright, thank you.

Also, if you get the chance you should put the official rules on http://8ch.net/marx/rules.html because right now it's completely blank.


Ismail, is it okay if I make a thread here about ecology?

I've called climate change ecology a "bourgeois pseudoscience" on /leftypol/ and it didn't go well (ban+post deletion). Apparently too politically incorrect. But there were some people I'd like to finish talking to.

It's basically Marxist (ML) PoV (Green have SocDem position, coupled with ideology of Environmentalism that is used for justifying "necessary" things), but it's not exactly what people have in mind when they think about Marxism (and - see above; some people are Green).

So I'm asking if it's okay (and this board needs some activity, imo).


File: 1470657611679.jpg (92.27 KB, 630x480, 21:16, Stalin 1943.jpg)


Sure, go ahead.



Why not save all those decadent syllables and call yourselves what you really are: eorthless cunts



Ha, what a childish brat


>uphold or otherwise identify with the Stalin-era USSR, the post-Stalin era, China under Mao, Albania under Hoxha, Cuba, the DPRK

But those systems were all very authorian, and state capitalist ;___;


File: a456bb034f9d1ae⋯.jpg (59.89 KB, 561x407, 51:37, Lenin leader of world prol….jpg)


What is meant by "authoritarian"?

As for being "state capitalist," I'd ask who the capitalists were.



What do you think? None of the state capitalist countries are exactly the paragon of freedom

>I'd ask who the capitalists were.

Do you mean in a state capitalist system, or before that?


File: 52140c0f3f90b76⋯.jpg (80.99 KB, 840x605, 168:121, Lenin and a peasant.jpg)


>None of the state capitalist countries are exactly the paragon of freedom

As Lenin said, "So long as the state exists there is no freedom. When there is freedom, there will be no state." Again, what are you defining as "authoritarian"? It apparently isn't actually the wielding of authority as such, but refers to specific measures that made the USSR and likeminded countries "unfree."

>Do you mean in a state capitalist system, or before that?

In a state-capitalist system who were the bourgeoisie? How could a bourgeoisie exist when labor-power wasn't a commodity and land and the means of production were publicly controlled?


Why do you call your board /marx/ when it's about reactionary pseudo-marxism?


File: ae8a921131d12d2⋯.jpg (72.2 KB, 475x356, 475:356, MarxEngelsLenin.jpg)


Because if opposition to the doctrines of Marx, Engels and Lenin constitutes genuine Marxism then, in the words of Marx, "All I know is that I am not a Marxist."

Hello. My political ideology is not important. I anyone needs to be a communist to understand that some of the things they say about the USSR is grossly exaggerated. That being said, Wikipedia is easily one of the most referred to source of information for people everywhere. It would be beneficial I think for people who has not only read about the USSR, but read non-bourgeois historians and have non-skewed statistics to utilize their knowledge to give people a more nuanced perspective. There are many, MANY articles about the USSR that are UNSOURCED, or lacking any credentials. I don't know how many people that have been given a worse impression of socialist attempts by all of the baseless conjecture on that site, but I can easily put the number to around 600 million :^) . Either way, I would do it myself if it wasn't for the fact that I'm not well read on these subjects. If anyone has the spare time and dedication to do this, than it could do a long way in influencing public opinion.




If you have specific questions, I might answer them. But I don't believe in winning Edit Wars on wiki. Anti-Soviet lobby is simply too strong there.


Ismail, would you mind sticking the thread >>5038 in case of future /pol/ wipes?


File: 8b7e24a4732d04e⋯.jpg (151.12 KB, 800x354, 400:177, eregime meme.jpg)


I've modified how the board works so the sort of spam that we saw last month is basically incapable of wiping the board now.

That being said, if other people want it stickied, I shall do so.



We need more comrades here, comrade.


File: 197b704a099f9d0⋯.gif (22.76 KB, 500x375, 4:3, __shana_shakugan_no_shana_….gif)

Would it be OK with you if I promoted the site by linking to it on some Communist blogs?


File: 5809ba30e51c1f8⋯.jpg (215.65 KB, 800x543, 800:543, KJI_1.jpg)


Go ahead.


If I may make a suggestion comrade, I think user IDs should be added if possible.

The reason I say this, is that many people come here from /pol/ and /leftypol/ and wit their lack of historical and theory understanding, always end up shitposting 3 posts into a debate. Since from what I've seen, this board is about discussion between people knowledgeable in theory and about discourse meant to answer some quesion that people without knowledge of theory might have, I think enabling IDs an giving people the ability to filter shitposters would benefit the board overall


File: 3c58a03a84af4ac⋯.jpg (72.11 KB, 500x424, 125:106, MyDream-500.jpg)


If anyone else wants this, it shall be done.



I recommend that you don't do this.




> user IDs should be added if possible.

Supporting this for the reasons that were stated.





why? it also helps in keeping discussions coherent, especially since threads last weeks


File: 5a652f7855f4ec0⋯.png (421.67 KB, 600x923, 600:923, sayaka.png)


I third this for the same reasons.

I think /marx/ needs a mascot. I propose Sayaka Miki dressed as a Young Pioneer. What do you guys think?



I agree.






No. IDs are useless.

You want to have a weeks or months long discussion? use a trip.

Enough people switch IPs that it doesn't do any of the good things you want and where it is needed trips exist. If you have a discussion that lasts weeks you certainly can keep a txt file with your trip saved if you need to because if it is a real discussion you'll keep some sources there to read anyway.

ID are cancer on a board when those who don't want to be ID and are malevolent will switch IP easily anyway.


File: 6bc6213306880bd⋯.png (7 KB, 174x52, 87:26, eRegime.png)

I know I'm obviously partial, but I always say that if people want detailed, months-long discussions and want to know who they're talking to, join my forum and post in the "eLeftistia" forum area viewable to registered users: http://eregime.org/index.php

I've always treated /marx/ as more of a questions and answers board rather than one for in-depth discussion.

Tripcodes are also good for that as long as you use a good one.

Oh hey every time I tried to enter this thread it would give me an error message. Thanks for showing me it is now fixed.

Also that /r9k/ poster seems clueless. Engels wasn't even a Jew.



Two sentences until the Freemasons got brought in.

10/10 wouldn't even bother to throw in the trash, in case some poor kid in africa accidentally reads it


Ismail, are you able to allow TOR users to upload files?



If the option is available then I could do that.


Hello Ismail could you create a new "Ask me Questions thread"? The old one is at its Limits



Who was the original leader?

Why did it change?

Do you like it here?



I actually have no idea who founded /marx/. I just remember the owner made a thread being like "I'm too busy to continue running this board. Does anyone else want it?" And I stepped up.

I like /marx/, yes.





Ask me questions about anything, thread II just reached the maximum number of posts.



Damn that was quick.

New thread: https://8ch.net/marx/res/10096.html


Just to let you know Ismail, there are some big problems with 4chan right now and there might be a trickle to a flood of refugees from that site if it goes to shit over the next few weeks or month or so. If you start getting lots of super low-effort threads with unsourced infographs and schizophrenic ramblings about Jews, don’t even try to argue with them, it’s impossible. /leftypol/ is already getting a steady amount (more than the usual day) of “not real communism” and “communism killed hundreds of millions” threads

millions” threads



>there are some big problems with 4chan right now

Can you elaborate?

But yeah if the board starts getting swamped with "the Khmer Rouge was a Jewish conspiracy"-esque threads, I'll take action, same thing if there's a superabundance of "not REAL communism" threads.


File: ba3a2a0ee303f84⋯.png (882.68 KB, 1000x2264, 125:283, A425CBFD-C53E-465E-88E2-EE….png)


This infograph gives the basic gist. I’m not sure if this is just drama over a small change or if it will actually be bad (or when this will even occur)


Ask me questions about anything, thread III is full.



Is there a Post-Marxist board on 8chan?



I wouldn't know, /marx/ is all I ever look at on 8Chan outside of very infrequent glances at /leftypol/ when I'm bored.
