Often when when talking about leftist fiction, it is in relation to speculative science fiction.I'd like to have a thread to discuss not only fantasy with leftist themes, but fantasy in general.So, read any good fantasy recently?

>Most wizards also don't seem to have a deep understanding of magic and how it works, but just say the words and do the gestures to make stuff happen, so their understanding of magic isn't scientific at all really.
Is it even possible to write a universe in which magic can be studied and explained scientifically?

>he is unironically doing gods work with helping losers get on their feet
Most of his useful advice is the same shit you'd find in any self-help book, I'm not exaggerating. The difference is he dresses it up in references to philosophy and positive psychology so people who think they're above self-help books think they're engaging in something deeper and more intellectual instead, and of course, he makes sure to tie self-improvement to right-wing politics in a way that seems inextricable to his listeners. No, he is unironically doing terrible work and it's worth attempting to discredit him whenever possible (which needless to say, this comic does not do).
>Sure, it is, but isn't it better for pathetic losers to be pathetically brought back into actual society in a cringey way, rather than to let them wallow in their failure and ruin their lives?
Yes, I agree. These people need help. But we shouldn't be convinced that the only useful help they can get is also one that indoctrinates them into conservatism.

not really, marijuana is basically weeds (the kind you have to remove from your vegetable garden), it grow pretty easily. A better soil will still give better result ofc.
>can I grow some on a normal pot that I can put by the window
I mean, sure, but dont expect a crazy productivity
> How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool?
plenty of resources for this too, but first let me tell you, the leaf is not what you wanna smoke, its the buds (of unfertilized female)
the first step will be drying them
>How much sunlight does it need
>How much watering?
dude, just go search for a tutorial, it's really not that hard and I wont spoonfeed you anything else

This book is from the creator of Youjo Senki about trying to keep Yugoslavia together. I know Yugoslavia isn't really socialist but from the point of view of the author I feel it is and wonder how he chose to write about it considering the popularity of his other work among the right. Would be cool if someone translated it (I could rip the book for them if they are unable).

Anyway, general socialist fiction thread!

It sacrifices content for form, it's cool that every panel looks like an expressionist painting but they crammed the 360+ pages of story in the original into like 50 in the remake (understandable since the publication got cancelled due to pissing off the government and the writer being kidnapped not long after) IMO you should only read it if you really liked the original and want to see an alternate take on it.

I wouldn't call them 'political cartoons' as much as political statements in cartoon, but is Bill Watterson a socialist, or a cryptosocialist? There's some clear anticapitalist venting (can't upload examples right now, but Calvin's dad really wants those Cuban supermarkets https://www.rat.at/comic/2015-09-24/011-Calvin_And_Hobbes_2015-09-24.1.gif )

Bill Watterson definitely recognizes the sad realities of capitalism, but only ever in a jaded way. hell of a dark thinker considering the lightness of his medium. I don't know if that's "cryptosocialism" so much as it's the vague and ill-defined anticapitalism that is typical of many on the lower rungs of the petty-bourgeoisie.

Excellent advice, second it wholeheartedly. There's no special scheme or plan you need, you just need to learn how to relax, be interested, and not take it personally when other people arent interested.

Anybody who treats socialization like some science to be perfected is a sociopath or a wannabe sociopath anyway. It aint that deep

No boring ass woody Guthrie singing about how sad it to be from Oklahoma while strumming his guitar. I want synthesisers, fast rhythms, weird ass instruments you’ve never heard before. I want shit that would make you want to get up and dance in your local town square with other third world peasants.

Is its leftist? cool. Is its advocating for the genocide of some ethnic minority or the establishment of a global caliphate? I don’t give shit as long as the music is fire.

I started an internet radio station. You can listen to it if you want.

radio stream: http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg

You can copy the link into a music player, or if you're on linux just do `mpv http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg'

If you want to stream your own show (talking, music, whatever you want), it's very easy to do. I give you a an address to connect to, username and password, and then you use some software to stream, I like using Mixxx
>https://mixxx.org/
but you can use a web client, too.
>https://webcast.github.io/webcaster/
For a full list of software that should work check: https://icecast.org/apps/

Right now it's playing through some punk, rock, metal, ska, psychedelic rock, but as I make more playlists, the variety will change too. Right now Sundays are gonna be Reggae Sundays, playing reggae, dub and ska. If anyone would like to help manage the station and make playlists, upload music, manage the schedule, that is cool too. I'm easy going as long as good music plays. :)

Since it plays pirated music, I'd rather not publicly advertise it. I checked that list and most of the stations seem to be internet versions of licensed radio stations.

You can put "http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg" into VLC or any player that can stream from the internet and listen to it that way.

Board for music discussoon: https://board.prolsphere.one/rad/

There has been few updates lately, but new music is being added to the radio. There will be weekly news headlines/excerpts being broadcast every week. I'm talking to a few anons about having shows. Daily schedules are slowly shaping up. There will be radio dramas playing in the evenings, just trying to figure out time slots to satisfy both the EU and NA time zones.

Oh yeah, and if you hear a song you hate, ask to have it removed. Conversely, if you love a song, then you can ask for more like it. And as always, anyone who wishes to play with the playlist and add and remove songs let me know and you can be added as a station admin.
