This is a thread for giving feedback and complaints about moderation actions.

Because there are so many new Volunteers right now, we are bound to hit a few bumps in the next week or so. If you see a thread deleted or moderated in a way that you think is unfair, please post ITT, preferably with evidence or a detailed description of it. This won't guarantee a reversal, but it will help bring it to my attention. Volunteers who turn out to be repeat offenders and refuse to learn will have their accounts removed. You can also monitor our actions here:

As well, Volunteers who can't decide what to do about something should post ITT to get feedback before acting.

Hello and welcome to /leftypol/. Please check the board tags for related boards. These are our groups:


/leftypol/'s magazine:

Other leftist chans/backups:


>How can you call yourselves leftist politically incorrect?

/leftypol/ posters are allowed to voice opinions that offend liberals, SJWs, and so on. All sects of leftism are allowed to post on /leftypol/, leading to plenty of fighting and shitflinging between leftists, which other forums would tend to 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'm not a leftist can I post here?

/leftypol/ welcomes debate from non-leftists. Non-leftists frequently come here to ask questions and raise topics for debate. Board moderation here is more focused on maintaining a good board index, so non-leftists have to be on better behavior as OP than they do as participants in someone else's thread. If you aren't b8ing or shitposting, your thread is likely to stay up.

>Are you liberals? Are you SJWs? Do you like Obama? Are you all Zionists???

>Over five million jobs will be lost by 2020 as a result of developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics and other technological change, according to World Economic Forum research.

>About 7 million jobs will be lost and 2 million gained as a result of technological change in 15 major developed and emerging economies, WEF founder Klaus Schwab and managing board member Richard Samans said in "The Future of Jobs." The findings are taken from a survey of 15 economies covering about 1.9 billion workers, or about 65 percent of the world’s total workforce.

>The blurred lines between physical, digital and biological spheres amount to a Fourth Industrial Revolution, according to the WEF, which will address the idea as the idea at its annual meeting of policy makers, academics and economists in Davos, Switzerland. It’s already a hot topic thanks in part to books such as ‘The Second Machine Age’ and ‘The Rise of The Robots,’ while Bank of England Chief Economist Andy Haldane has warned that the millions of jobs at risk from automation are creating issues officials need to address.

>"To prevent a worst-case scenario – technological change accompanied by talent shortages, mass unemployment and growing inequality – reskilling and upskilling of today’s workers will be critical," the authors said. "It is simply not possible to weather the current technological revolution by waiting for the next generation’s workforce to become better prepared."

Jobs Warning

>Administrative and office jobs will account for two-thirds of the losses, with "routine white-collar office functions at risk of being decimated," and there will be gains in computer, mathematical, architecture and engineering-related fields. Women will be disproportionately hit by the changes because of their low participation in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The countries covered by the survey included Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, the U.K. and the U.S.

I agree. The laws of physics clearly preclude the existence of self-replicating autonomous structures. They certainly couldn't exist for 4 fucking billion years.

I swear, this place is a singularity of idiots.


To really see how fucked futurology is, and how people think we can live in a capitalist utopia, just look at r/futurology. Such a fucked place. Muh universal basic income. Muh worshipping of capitalists such as Elon Musk.




Yes there are physical limits (at least according to our current understanding of the universe) that would prevent "full automation" and the singularity, etc



Fuck futurology* I meant. Futurism is prob something entirely different.

The world’s eight richest billionaires control the same wealth between them as the poorest half of the globe’s population, according to a charity warning of an ever-increasing and dangerous concentration of wealth.

In a report published to coincide with the start of the week-long World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Oxfam said it was “beyond grotesque” that a handful of rich men headed by the Microsoft founder Bill Gates are worth $426bn (£350bn), equivalent to the wealth of 3.6 billion people.

The development charity called for a new economic model to reverse an inequality trend that it said helped to explain Brexit and Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election.

Oxfam blamed rising inequality on aggressive wage restraint, tax dodging and the squeezing of producers by companies, adding that businesses were too focused on delivering ever-higher returns to wealthy owners and top executives.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) said last week that rising inequality and social polarisation posed two of the biggest risks to the global economy in 2017 and could result in the rolling back of globalisation.

Oxfam said the world’s poorest 50% owned the same in assets as the $426bn owned by a group headed by Gates, Amancio Ortega, the founder of the Spanish fashion chain Zara, and Warren Buffett, the renowned investor and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway.

The others are Carlos Slim Helú: the Mexican telecoms tycoon and owner of conglomerate Grupo Carso; Jeff Bezos: the founder of Amazon; Mark Zuckerberg: the founder of Facebook; Larry Ellison, chief executive of US tech firm Oracle; and Michael Bloomberg; a former mayor of New York and founder and owner of the Bloomberg news and financial information service.

Last year, Oxfam said the world’s 62 richest billionaires were as wealthy as half the world’s population. However, the number has dropped to eight in 2017 because new information shows that poverty in China and India is worse than previously thought, making the bottom 50% even worse off and wideninPost too long.

Leftist characters and stories in popular media

Since some people love to post this meme so much, let's have one thread for this specifically and make it actually useful.

Who are some well-known characters who are or resemble leftists?

What are some popular shows, movies, animu, video games, etc. with leftist or proto-leftist elements? Characters, plotlines, themes, whatever.

Does this sort of thing help raise class consciousness or otherwise promote leftist goals?

Yeah I'm not sure which one I prefer I love them both a lot and my opinion on which one is the best has changed over time. The classic Alien vs Aliens debate. Either way James Cameron should be forced at gunpoint to stop making Avatar 2, 3 and 4 and only be allowed to make sequels to sci-fi thrillers.



Same here. I remember when I first saw Alien, I had already seen Aliens (it was the first DVD I ever watched I believe) and felt Alien was boring (I was like 11 or 12 when I bought them so forgive me). Then when I got older, I began liking Alien more for the atmosphere and look and tension, but now I feel Aliens is better for the characters and excitement and capturing many of the same themes in a more exciting way. They're both two of the greatest films, my statements are only in relation to each other honestly. They're both better than 99.9999 percent of the dogshit shat out of Hollywood.

But Terminator and Terminator 2 are actually better sci fi films and better at themes of dehumanization and such anyway. And yeah James Cameron is a total piece of shit now. Makes nothing but special effects films with hamfisted, stupid messages that aren't even original. I despise him now.



Oh, fun lefty trivia, one of the many versions of Alien 3 that was shitcanned was a story about Ripley and Newt and Hicks running into fanatical socialists who would be the stand in for the bad capitalists of the first two films. From what I gathered, they'd be like Kim Stanley Robinsons Martian government if it were presented as evil and bad, so that would have just shot all the leftism of the franchise out of the airlock. The final film is terrible but at least it didn't have that.

Mugabe is an evil cunt but his rise was the fault of the white minority government. Majority rule was going to happen one way or another and by resisting reasonable reform the Rhodesians pretty much left Mugabe as the only viable alternative to apartheid.



is there any good reading about him

There are some audio issues, and there are some people that you can't hear, but there's some very interesting stuff in there.

That's something I never got about /r/socialism's mods. They COULD do that. Just make a subreddit /r/catgirlfreesocialism, you'll get like 10 subscribers, your community will be easy as fuck to manage and I'm sure you'll be able to find 10 sycophants willing to follow whatever stupid fucking rule you come up with every day. I think it's the drama from their cycle of implementing some dumb fucking rule, purging people who complain, melting down when the entire sub starts going "wtf?", having a "come to Jesus" moment where they promise they've seen their mistakes and promise to do better, etc that keeps them modding /r/socialism. If they had a sub of 5 users who all agreed with them, they'd never get the drama they love.

Last thread 404'd as I was engaging in proletarian weekend activities, so lets pick up from where we left.

>TLDR game about national issues, I let leftypol choose the best choice and then we see what a trainwreck our socialist utopia would be

So far this is what we have

The People's Republic of Leftybol is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14 million Buckoes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Leftybolian economy, worth 136 billion labour vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry. Average income is 9,753 labour vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, immigrants who don't like the taste of Leftybolian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leftybol's national animal is the spook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

>if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

How do they even do that if private enterprise is outlawed? This game is such pure ideology it cannot even comprehend a non-capitalist society whilst explicitly allowing for their creation.



When you get an issue just keep answering in a socialist and it will eventually change.

>Troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean.


General officers in the Leftybolian Armed Forces are requesting the criminalisation of “stolen valour” - the impersonation of decorated service members, often with the motive of financial gain.

“These traitorous cowards need to be prosecuted!” says red-faced Vice Admiral Jabulani Christmas while puffing out his chest, proudly showing off his own service medals. “They demean the heroic actions of veterans who did actually earn the medals, and desecrate the memory of those who died in service of Leftybol. I know what my boys would do to these charlatans if they caught them, and I can’t promise I’d intervene! I’d like to see these pretenders try to earn the medals they want to show off. Actually, let’s do that - send all these fraudsters to the front line. That’ll teach them.”

>TLDR if someone wears or makes fake military clothing or items, the punishment is he gets sent to the battlefields

“It is the right of all citizens to express themselves in any way they chose,” claims the dixie cup-sporting Jabulani de Jong, an investigative journalist with On Liberty magazine. “People should be free to dress in any uniform without fear of reprisal or punishment - and that includes wearing a uniform of the LAF. What better way to display to the world one’s patriotism! And if you happen to get more respect or some discounts because of it, all the better. If that argument doesn’t persuade you, then maybe you should ask the Vice Admiral how he won those medals. You can bet your bottom labour voucher that if you criminalise this, journalists will start asking serving officers that question. Do you want to have a media witch-hunt of the military?”

>TLDR allow military clothing on civilians

“Why do we celebrate and glorify warmongering by raising these conquistadors above everyone else?” questions Howard Svensson, an anti-war protester outside the gates of your office building. “These medals and uniforms only exist to exert dominance and fear over the masses. The military claim these medals are rewards, but they are actually trophies declaring to the world how many innocent civilians their brainwashed killers massacred.

Star Trek, making the future look really grim once you think about it for five minutes


The most left wing Trek episode, even has Trotskyists taking over France



I've watched all of the original series, I'm about to watch movie V

Seen bits of the TNG/DS9/VOY era, pretty keen for TNG and DS9, and I'm curious about ENT.

Still blows my mind that people think the federation are either liberal or fascist.



Wow, well V will ruin any good will you have with the franchise, lol. Most of the films are lame though, especially the new ones.

TNG and DS9 are the best series, IMO the only great ones. Enterprise is the Star Wars prequel equivalent of the franchise, it's pretty bad outside of a few episodes.

Trek's future (at least for humans) is actually liberals trying to do a communist utopian future. And people think it's fascist usually because they either think A. Starfleet is the government given most of the series centers on it (DS9 even did a two parter showing the Federation government to squash the idea it was some military dictatorship, lol) and B they don't know what fascism is. Take this vid: It says the Federation is fascist because it's socialist, and uses bogus quotes to prove
