This thread is for the discussion of bans, (bump)locks and generally anything pertaining to the moderation of the board. The last thread is a little crowded with things from last year, so I think it's time for a new, fresher thread.

Can you tell me a bit about Battle for China's Past? If I know very little about this past is it still accessible? It seems to be metahistory which is definitely interesting.

>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.

>You can still believe in racial distinctions without wanting genocide or infanticide or whatever. If you truly believe black people are no different to animals, then you must also believe that their lives are worth at least that of an animal's life.

If you are describing your own beliefs here, then you are very unusual. In my observation, the primary reason for believing in race theory, is to justify resource extraction, territorial theft, and enslavement of those considered inferior.



It's not wrong to discuss racial distinction, it's just irrelevant to anything except right wing racial cuckold fetishes so leftists just don't.

I think everyone wonders the same thing with regards to any disorder or disability.

A horrible form of reverse hypochondria. Hyperchondria?

Beware Billionaires Bearing Gifts

There’s a new Koch organization in town. Instead of trying to buy politicians to do the bidding of billionaires, as Charles and David Koch have historically done, this foundation will support community groups trying to cure the miseries of eons—everything from poverty to addiction.And they’ve got some street cred, having successfully worked with renowned liberal Van Jones to secure legislation to reduce mass incarceration. Billionaire Charles Koch says the mission is this: “We must stand together to help every person rise.”That is some good stuff, right there. It’s what labor unions have always preached—workers must stand together to gain the collective power essential to pull every one of them up. It works, too. In the middle of the last century, collective bargaining created the great American middle class.There’s an important difference, though, between the work of labor unions and billionaire-funded organizations. Labor unions are created and controlled by workers. Billionaire-funded organizations are beholden to billionaires.What could be so bad, though, about accepting gifts from billionaires? Just last week, billionaire Robert F. Smith promised to pay off the student loans of 396 graduates of Morehouse College. That means these young people get to launch their careers without the burden of debt. Smith granted the loan forgiveness with no stipulations other than urging every member of the class of 2019 to do what they could to pay it forward—that is, help others achieve as well.This gift is part of Smith’s effort to fulfill his giving pledge. He signed a formal promise in 2017 to donate half of his fortune, estimated at $5 billion.The giving pledge is a project of billionaires Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates, who are bequeathing at least half of their money and urging other billionaires to do the same.

>Iraq lost so bad?

Iraq got their shit wrecked in an 8 year war with Iran, along with international isolation and no outside balancing force

the idea that the Iraqi army was in any shape at all during 91 is a myth peddled by americans



Were the conscripts at least trained properly?



They didn't really y get wrecked, in fact they did more damage and the T-72M1s slaughtered the M-60A3s used by the Iranians. The problem was that they wore themselves out in the war. For example the 2A26 cannon used by the export T-72 had a small barrel life and the majority of the ammo they fired was outdated and from old soviet stockpiles. By the time of the Gulf War, the Iraqi tech was worn out and their veterans had retired. Despite that they still managed to do more damage than the USA lets on. Such as the aircraft they lost to MiG-25s such as the F-18 that they claimed got hit by an SAM for YEARS before admitting it was an Air-Air loss.


Vietnam didn't recieve top of the line stuff but what they got was generally unused. So SA-3s, MiG-17s and AK-47s that were no longer used by soviet forces (replaced by SA-6s, MiG-21s and AKMs) but were technically brand new in any other regard. The Viet Cong had it worse off and often used weapons dating back to WW-2 that they got from French stockpiles, or worn AKs they got from the NVA.



Because the "Soviet" stuff the Iraqis were using was provided for them by the US during the Iran-Iraq war, so the equipment was forcibly downgraded by the US, most electronics were removed including the targeting computers and for a large chunk of the T-72s their turrets were hand-cranked. Plus Iraq used the tanks in hull-down positions and neglected Soviet MBT mobility. Iraqi equipment did poorly when used improperly, but when used properly it worked well, you can see that when outside of Operation Desert Storm when the Iraqis pushed back some of the Marine Corps by going into 1:1 fights with US M60s. So it's because A: the US rigged Iraqi equipment years before and B: poor tactics. Pretty sure there's some posts further up that covered this in detail.



Because the US military is shit at fighting insurgencies, but isn’t shit at fighting standing armies. Especially ones that are highly disorganized and suffer from sanctions.

I couldn't see myself doing it for minimum wage, with no health coverage, travel reimbursement, etc. So being in a union is definately preferable to not being in one, especially since monthly dues prices are reasonable and my state hasn't fallen victim to "right to work" laws yet.

reminder there is nothing wrong with money.

its efficient to allow people to swap things with each other. swaps always make both people better off.

so long as they are going to be allowed to swap things, people will always develop money so they can do more efficient swaps.

you cant get around this pals.

but you shouldnt want to either because its all completely efficient.

Money is a reward for fractional austerity, trust in society, and long-term planning. It’s a storable, divisible, fungible, and inedible good. Any good that is storable, divisible, fungible, and inedible is money and will be used to create money’s rewards. This is why money cannot be abolished.

The things that money rewards are things that refine the degree to which resources can be used elsewhere.

Not all swaps make people better off. It is tyrannical to expect all people in society to know all necessary things for making ideal swaps. Did you know that your employees’ health would improve if you replaced every doorknob (and especially your bathroom doorknobs) in your corporate HQ with brass doorknobs? Have you perhaps been undervaluing swaps for brass doorknobs? Society’s repository of best practices helps with things like this.



Do you even know how labor vouchers work? You're receiving what it costs society to get whatyou're putting out. By definition you can't do better in a market.



The degree of corruption in public health services is a dramatic differentiation between nations. America, Canada, New Zealand, most of Europe, and I believe Australia all have notably uncorrupted medical establishments. This is one of the hidden factors to the quality of a nation - medical corruption crushes real patriotism without impacting the appearance of patriotism, and people who encounter corruption in medicine develop strong drives towards emigration.

With the release of new HBO mini-series 'Chernobyl' there have been a lot of threats on it on /tv/. As expected there have been a lot of anti-Soviet and anti socialist propaganda talking about how Soviets forced thousands of people to work for free and that thousands have perished because of Soviet evilness or incompetence. People also put emphasis on Soviet propaganda completely ignoring the tragedy, but rather focusing on what was happening in US.

On the other hand there are also sources that state that 'only' 40 people had died, that evacuation went smoothly and things were professionally fixed; as much as possibly. There are also sources that state that 25,000 Ukrainian, Byelorussian and Russian victims of Chernobyl were threated in Cuba. What's the truth, thought?

Zillikami x SosMula are amazing in the sense that they deliver an amazing delivery and that they are just peak capitalism realism .

Now the vast majority of the lyrics are very violent trap shit about money, drugs, sex and GUNS (the violence factor in these duo is just over the top relatively to other mainstream artists) . But what makes this duo interesting are these very short instances of pure cynical ideology, let me put it how zizek puts it, "I very know well what I am doing but I am doing it nonetheless"

Take for example this hook from their track "Nuka Cola":

"Me, I like my semi big

Me, I like my 30 clip

Me, I never ever miss

'Cause ignorance is elegant"

Or at the beginning of this verse from "Snow On Tha Bluff".

"All my niggas with the shits, and ignorant

We just young black, and militant, and full of shit

Got your gun out, then bust it then

I hope it jams on yo' ass and you get done in

I ain't your friend, I'm on my bullshit, hood shit

Red ragaroo shit

That barkin' won't do shit

Got guns like I'm ISIS

Big whoop whoop shit

Don't fight, shoot shit

We move like a unit

Don't need no computers"

Friendly reminder that the most successful Marxist movement in human history was Marxism-Leninism, known pejoratively as "Stalinism". Friendly Reminder that Marxism-Leninism in its fully developed, "mature" form:

>banned homosexuality

>banned abortion

>encouraged women to have children and stay at home

>purged jews and non-Russian nationals from sensitive state agencies like the NKVD and the foreign office

>promoted Russian history and traditions

>purged managerialists, elites, and corrupt bureaucrats

>encouraged a straight, white, masculine martial ideal for the preservation of the nation

>only allowed healthy, optimistic, socialist realism and not degenerate dadaist/absurdist trash

>promoted socialism in one country, pragmatically recognizing the absurdity of Trotsky's poisonous and delusional internationalism

>routinely deported nationalities that caused troubles, as well as illegal immigrants out of cities (internal passport system ftw)

Any Marxist who does not embrace Marxism-Leninism, which is not only the most successful but also the most internally logical form of Marxism, is a defeatist and a Social Fascist. Modern "Marxists" are nothing but Capitalist spies, boosters, and supporters.

>Article 121 defines all homosexual activity as "pederasty". Why don't you read the law? For a more practical example refer to the trial of Yezhov, where his homosexual activities were labeled as such.

If you read why the law existed, it was done purely to reduce the crime of pederasty. It was more or less enforced in cases of pedophilia with about 800 to 1000 prosecutions annually. That isn't to say bias or persecution against homosexuals didn't exist, but the actions against it are largely over-exaggerated. And Yezhov was accused of much more than simply being gay,

>Btw here's what Stalin thought of you homos:

Not a homosexual, and regardless it matters little. Marxist-Leninism is a science and it is not something that stays dormant undeveloped with the times. Regardless of Stalin's personal proclivities, even he would agree with such a statement. Here is a good analysis of homosexuality and the USSR.





Jokes aside, what's with the threads today? It's like the board quality dropped like the market.
