It's that time again. Send an e-mail with your motivation, how often you'd be able to moderate, your timezone, your moderation style and whatever you think will help your chances. There'll only be some slight timezone-based discrimination if there aren't enough good applications, but don't let that discourage you from applying if you're american. The more the merrier.

Applications will be open for a week or two, depending on my schedule and how quickly I can get good applications.

Send your application email to e-nkvd@protonmail.com and make sure to include a keyword or phrase which you also post in this thread so that your post history can be vetted. Don't pick something too generic someone else might pick, I don't want to see three people pick "stalin did nothing wrong" as their key phrase.

>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.

True or False:

<The capitalist mode of production is in a less precarious position now, than it was 170-80 years ago

Bonus question:

<Which theorist best explains why this outcome occurred?

I don't know if there are any big or medium brain posters left on this board, but if any of you are out there, I'd like to hear your take on the bonus question. I have my own take, but I'd like to hear others first.



>The capitalist mode of production is in a less precarious position now, than it was 170-80 years ago

What makes you think this is true?



>The capitalist mode of production is in a less precarious position now, than it was 170-80 years ago

hm… false. capitalism is in a more precarious position now than it was in Marx's day.

>Which theorist best explains why this outcome occurred?

That's a good question, and I'm not sure who specifically answers this question the best. Even in volume 1 of Marx's Capital he lays down the basic argument as to why capitalism must transform into something else. To really solve the buildup of problems in capitalism would require revolutionary change and the individual capitalists will almost never accept this. By revolutionary I don't mean necessarily a revolution of the political type but instead a radical change of the capitalist mode of production at a fundamental level. In the 20th century, governments and industrial capitalists began working towards new ways of organizing production in attempts to avoid or resolve crises - but these attempts can never fully succeed if they stop short of creating a new system of socialized production. But such a system would undercut the wealth and privileges of the capitalist ruling class. And therein lay the real conundrum.

The capitalism of Marx's day had quite a bit more room to develop. The scientific revolution was about to unleash all kinds of new productive forces. Not only that, but capitalism in Marx's day was only beginning to extend itself across the globe. The empires created by European powers allowed them to tap into vast markets in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. Excess population could easily be siphoned off into colonies in the Americas. In short, capitalism found its ideal conditions. Capitalism today does not have those conditions. It has very little room for failure.



Capitalism is in a more precarious state than it ever was. Marx was not wrong about the contradictions of capitalism, he merely underestimated how long it would take for them to become evident; in modern times, even liberals will sheepishly admit this.



>9) a secular tendency for capital to concentrate [a novel fact not predicted by the neoclassical theory of the firm]

>10) a secular tendency for capital to centralize

It's that time again Comrades, Lenin is young, and new October is coming.

Normal difficulty, 1985 start.

Who will the politburo elect as General Secretary?

Grigory Romanov, Adropov's steadfast protege within the party leadership?

Mikhail Gorbachev, the rising star of the party?

Victor Grishin, an unlikely but ambitious hardliner and close supporter of Chernenko?

Or the longstanding, if unambitious, party grandee Andrey Gromyko?

Or perhaps the politburo sees another, more appropriate candidate to lead the Party in this difficult time for the Union.

I don't know if any of you follow the BLS reports (even though they are inaccurate) but the last one for october showed growth in retail has stagnated. That was one indicator that got buried in the news by the increase in healthcare jobs wich are always increasing because healthcare is propped up by the insurance companies and big pharma. But the thing to take away from that last report was that consumer demand has effectively stalled for the month of october. Naturally the holiday months Nov - Dec will possibly show a slight uptick in spending but that will only mask the truth that will be awaiting us in 2019.



The yield curve is flattening like crazy since last month, if it goes on like this it'll be flat by Q1 2019.

I mean I see Africans, Chinese, Iranians, Japanese and Latinos outperform Caucasians regularly in physics, electronics and conputer engineering. So the differences aren't really in white people's favor if they're there and significant. If anything Indians and Iranians are the master race.

Thread for the discussion of the political and economic system of the Nordic countries, and to clear up misunderstandings.

The Nordics are often pointed to as an example of "socialism that works", especially by social democrats and self-described democratic socialists in the US. The reason for this is their effective welfare states, relatively low inequality, relatively high taxation, and high standard of living. The origins of these phenomena are disputed.

But one things is clear; it is erroneous to call them socialist. the Nordic countries are capitalist and imperialist powers. The means of production remain private property, and these countries are deeply enmeshed in global capitalism and NATO. But because so many people (radlibs and polyps for the most part) seem to not grasp this, it merits emphasizing.

I assume you are talking about SV and Rødt!. SV is a left-wing liberal party pandering to the empathy of their voters, and has no support in the working class and labour movement.

Rødt! is a hard demsoc/socialist party with some basis and support in the labour movement, and as such has the potential to be a peoples movement, although they are moving a tad more in the direction of a party for the empathic middle-class atm.

SV also has the foreign policy you would expect from a US vassal state, while Rødt! remains anti-imperialist, being the only Norwegian party that was against the bombing of Libya in 2011.

Also the ground they are gaining now is only small parts voters fleeing the labour party due to it being a bunch of incompetent sellouts with no clue on the needs and interests of the Norwegian working class, nothing to get too excited about



Samis are not heavily oppressed (anymore) in Scandinavia, and there is doubt regarding their arrival to Scandinavia compared to the Germanic peoples (not that I think that even matters).

Important part is though, they are hardly populous enough to support their own state, and most of them live in areas were they make up a small minority, so there is hardly any feasible solution that is better than the one there is now.

Think of it as the most momentous military planning on Earth right now.

Who’s even paying attention, given the eternal changing of the guard at the White House, as well as the latest in tweets, sexual revelations, and investigations of every sort? And yet it increasingly looks as if, thanks to current Pentagon planning, a twenty-first-century version of the Cold War (with dangerous new twists) has begun and hardly anyone has even noticed.

In 2006, when the Department of Defense spelled out its future security role, it saw only one overriding mission: its “Long War” against international terrorism. “With its allies and partners, the United States must be prepared to wage this war in many locations simultaneously and for some years to come,” the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review explained that year.

Twelve years later, the Pentagon has officially announced that that long war is drawing to a close — even though at least seven counterinsurgency conflicts still rage across the Greater Middle East and Africa — and a new long war has begun, a permanent campaign to contain China and Russia in Eurasia.

“Great power competition, not terrorism, has emerged as the central challenge to U.S. security and prosperity,” claimed Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist while releasing the Pentagon’s $686 billion budget request in January. “It is increasingly apparent that China and Russia want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian values and, in the process, replace the free and open order that has enabled global security and prosperity since World War II.”

Of course, just how committed President Trump is to the preservation of that “free and open order” remains questionable given his determination to scuttle international treaties and ignite a global trade war. Similarly, whether China and Russia truly seek to undermine the existing world order or simply make it less American-centric is a question that deserves close attention, just not today.

The reason is simple enough. The screaming headline you should have seen in any paper (but haven’t) is this: the U.S. military has mPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

They don't have to, they've already bullied all the European corporations to back out. Unless the EU can make magic work with it's vague special investment vehicle that has yet to be set up despite Trump being in office for almost two tears now, the damage will be done.



I'd like to think Debord may be relevant here

"once the running of a state involves a permanent and massive shortage of historical knowledge, that state can no longer be led strategically."

The Pentagon repeats the same exact schtick as 50+ years ago, but without any of the old substance or real understanding. Making a conflict like this needs a lot more bodies, and Americans are increasingly becoming, dare I say, degenerate. The ones who go into these "“heavy metal” units: the Army’s tank brigades, the Navy’s carrier battle groups, the Air Force’s bomber squadrons, and so forth" are braindead and poor and not much better than mercs. Even the 'best and brightest' who would work for CIA/NSA stateside see the gap between them and the working poor decreasing. I see this as America heaping up its funeral pyre, they will drive its military machine to collapse from stress and then Amerigans have nothing.

Mexico general.

I haven't found any compilation of communism in Mexico, and I have a brainlet tier knowledge of Mexican history, but some highlights in no particular order:

>President Lázaro Cárdenas nationalized oil, expropriating large landed estates and distributing land to small holders in collective holdings (ejidos), tried to secularize (and inculcate leftism) in public schools (but peasants where church-cucks and fought back so he had to desist), legalized communist parties, granted asylum to Trotsky (RIP in Picks), among other great leftist strides.

>World renowned artists, Frida Khalo and his husband Diego Rivera were both members of the communist party and up until this year, were the images that appeared in the highest (actively) circulating money note.

>Diego Rivera, along with Siqueiros and other muralists, painted murals of the struggle of the indigenous people and the oppression they suffered. Siqueiros, a hardcore ML, led a failed attempt to assasinate Trotksy.

>Mexico also has a long history of labor unions, although they were eventually coopted by the government and are still in cahoots and deeply corrupt. Of note is the CTM which started out as an honest and very progressive labor union, but eventually became an unofficial branch of the ruling party through which they effected influence.

>Subcomandante Marcos and the EZLN, troubled history with the Mexican government to assert themselves as independent. Very based. The indigenous leaders write some essays which are #woke as fuck.

>EPR (Ejercito Popular Revolucionario), lesser known than EZLN, are an armed revolutionary army which have carried out multiple terrorist attacks, one of which cost the Mexican state 100MM USD per day (unclear how many days) (according to the english wikipedia article). They have also fought against many armed forces and in one attack cost the mexican government 30 troops.

>AMLO (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador), elect president by a huge landslide, accused of being a populist and of wanting to instill Venezuela """communism""" in Mexico. Largely leftist rhetoric.
