So, my party is gonna do a teaching session on different topics of Political Agitation, like how to paint, or how to make a poster, how to make better photography, rethoric courses and so on. And I've been chosen to teach these people how to become better video editors, or just straight becoming video editors.
Because of this, I need your help, /leftypol/ as I want advice in how to become a better teacher to explain stuff to party comrades, and also to become a better video editor.
ITT you post advice for being the teachers of the revolution

For things like that, the flipped classroom approach is appropriate. There are good instructional videos on YouTube out there, much better than what you can lecture in a classroom. So with flipped classrooms, you give the students videos to watch at home, then meet up and work on your projects face to face. It's a better use of the teacher's resources.

The operation will be successful but we will all die

Call it anything. Dreams, spooks, ambitions, escapism, plans, praxis, copium, etc.

There's so much contradictions between left & right & center. Why each factions so damn sure that they shall win & dominate the universe? I mean you'll encounter foes, traitors, saboteurs, opportunists, cucks, scums, etc. There's no utopian world nor distopian world as you thought. Things also won't just stagnant like centers schemes.

Accelerationism decelerationism, altruism egoism, why are you so full of hope? What's the point of struggling when you know that eventually yield degeneration according to each factions perspectives?

There'll be always turning point, but according to who & what?

How effective is a rent strike? If a bunch of renters get together and withhold rent, can this be effective?

Is this a good idea or just a way to get people evicted?

In that case I wouldn't recommend a rent strike but rather building up a movement to call for expropriation of said bank or landlord corporations. There is obviously a difference between a petty bourgeois landlord and corporation.

A rent strike has way more of a chance of succeeding than calling for the bank to be expropriated lel, you might as well apply that logic to regular strikes and say the workers shouldn't strike but just call for their company to be nationalized.

Okay maybe I'm biased because I'm German. There is huge movement right now that calls for the expropriation of the two biggest landlords, and it has a chance of success in states like Berlin where there is a left-wing government that has expressed mild support for the idea. Whereas I've never heard a rent strike ever being successful.

I havent been paying rent since the eviction ban. Im gonna cut and run and leave the landlord high and dry. However rent strikes dont work because they dont harm the landlords enough, they just sell the property or rerent it higher later to recoup the costs. Hence why they dont even bother collecting in most cases

The Western Left's obsession with Israel isn't really about caring about Palestinians, but more about their anti-west ideology which they see Israel as representing in MENA which is why they ignore equally or worse conflicts such as the Syrian Civil War. There's also a level of antisemitism that leftists accept or at least tolerate which they'd never do for any other kind of bigotry.

Both sides that pushed “social imperialism” as a concept have a lot of nationalist and opportunistic ulterior motives behind it (Mautists and Trots respectively). Mao used it as an excuse to side with the west and openly have nationalist expansionism in mind. Trots were just hypocrites that would do anything to get back to prominence.
The idea of building a brand new system of production while containing it within a single political entity without trying to perpetuate it is self defeating in nature. Socialism in one country is just as idiotic as the socdems trying to go to communism by reforms or the anarchists trying to jump start it with shitty communes.

The Latest polling data from a reputable advertisement advice company Morning, along with previous polling data on Socialism and Communism from the victims of Communism foundation, found that not Only are Zoomers as left or more left than millennials, they are also shifting further left thanks to the pandemic.

What could explain the Generation Zyklon meme among Rightoids from 2016 t 2018?

I mean seriously, a lot of the biggest and most influential right-wingers thought it was true, why did they think it was true? and why are Zoomers still so left wing.

Zoomers will probably end up more right-wing long run than millenials - they're more or less as left wing as millenials are currently, but when you age-adjust them 10 years forward… Millenials in this regard are similar to Greatest Generation which stayed liberal throughout its lifetime.

Some examples of notable Western Marxists are Louis Althusser, Guy Debord, Theodore Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Antonio Negri, and Jean-Paul Sartre. I don't know a whole lot about them, but it seems that Western Marxism is largely a Western academia phenomenon and focuses more heavily on culture and less heavily on economics than other forms of Marxism. Its stance towards actually-existing socialism has been variable.

A lot of them have some interesting ideas and analyses, but ultimately I think they suffer from a variant of the “end of history” meme, insofar as they seemed to agree that the postwar boom had effectively neutralized class struggle in the West, and that this state of affairs would be sustainable indefinitely. I think that while a lot of their cultural commentary (particularly Adorno/Horkheimer) made interesting and correct observations regarding the effects of capitalist culture, they downplayed the role material prosperity played in allowing it to do so. I think that the collapse of the postwar class compromise has left a lot of their work outdated.

Marxists are Marxists. Each one will have their own unique analysis, advocate for a particular praxis, all of which contribute to the whole of socialist theory. But i do agree that they tend to focus a lot more on culture than economics, but given "the west" has a large cultural monopoly on media, movies, entertainment etc, it's certainly understandable.

>Commend @NATO partners' understanding of all the risks and challenges we face. NATO leaders confirmed that Ukraine will become a member of the Alliance & the #MAP is an integral part of the membership process. Ukraine deserves due appreciation of its role in ensuring Euro-Atlantic security


With NATO bringing in Kulakia into the fold the conflict with Russia is going to get much more dicey to keep going, any conflict which can be construed as an attack by Russia to Ukraine would trigger the rest of NATO to come in the defense to Ukraine. At the same time however, Ukraine attacking Russia would be seen as an act of aggression from NATO as a whole, which might lead to larger and more cohesive political alignments against NATO in the future. This might mean that Russia's control of Crimea is basically conceded to be law as low-level conflicts over territory becomes unfeasible.

The game misses out in mistakes where training disks were put in back at NORAD so NORAD was ordering them to prep to launch by mistake. Also there were times where maintenance crews almost cause accidental launch during routing maintenance of the rocket since unlike the warheads the rocket itself is always live and just waiting for electric current to start the rocket engine due to the time required to have rockets that are fuelled just prior to launch.

The Conquest of Bread: Chapter 1: Our riches: ​Peter Kropotkin
Climate is no longer an obstacle. When the sun fails, man replaces it by artificial heat; and we see the coming of a time when artificial light also will be used to stimulate vegetation. Meanwhile, by the use of glass and hot water pipes, man renders a given space ten and fifty times more productive than it was in its natural state. The prodigies accomplished in industry are still more striking. With the co-operation of those intelligent beings, modern machines – themselves the fruit of three or four generations of inventors, mostly unknown – a hundred men manufacture now the stuff to provide ten thousand persons with clothing for two years. In well-managed coal mines the labour of a hundred miners furnishes each year enough fuel to warm ten thousand families under an inclement sky. And we have lately witnessed the spectacle of wonderful cities springing up in a few months for international exhibitions, without interrupting in the slightest degree the regular work of the nations. And if in manufactures as in agriculture, and as indeed through our whole social system, the labour, the discoveries, and the inventions of our ancestors profit chiefly the few, it is none the less certain that mankind in general, aided by the creatures of steel and iron which it already possesses, could already procure an existence of wealth and ease for every one of its members. Truly, we are rich – far richer than we think; rich in what we already possess, richer still in the possibilities of production of our actual mechanical outfit; richest of all in what we might win from our soil, from our manufactures, from our science, from our technical knowledge, were they but applied to bringing about the well-being of all.
