I live in finland, joensuu (utra to be specific) where can i find and buy leftist books?



The internet!

Although, who knows if there are any Finns here beside you. After all there are only 20 people in Finland, and 5 tourists from Russia or Sweden.

Are modern political parties run like NGOS?

I've been thinking about this a lot, to me, even left parties are run like NGOS, with a focus on selling the product to people rather than true democratic movements.

There's also the division of labour between the volunteers and the people earning very high salaries.


Correct, the structure of a party (the way it is organized) is important for its integrity. This is why a party like Labour (despite its flaws) is different from, say, the DNC or the SPD.



But labour is still highly NGO-ized and undemocratic though. The "lower" spheres such as local branches and constituencies, take orders from the MPS and national.

Issues like open selection of MPS, which means that it would be mandatory for MPs to be confirmed by a vote each time by there local parties, are highly popular with the so-called grassroots, but so far have failed to become policy.



Like I said, Labour isn't perfect and still suffers from "NGO-ization" but it has actual potential and has managed to drop the Third Way, while the leadership of most European social democratic parties are still compromised.



what's the third way and how does it relate to internal democracy in the party?

>are only physiologically capable of being aroused by alpha chads

Interesting take but it isn't that bad. Women aren't physiologically incapable of being aroused by femboys, they just prefer chads. Also they end up hooking up with them because they're more assertive.

They do hate themselves for getting involved with shitbags though. 100% true.

Brute intervention is a term of art in discourse

Burger here and I had no idea why ireland was separated until a few weeks ago. Question: why can't unionists just fuck off back to England if they want to be british so bad? Seems like a lot of trouble for little benefit.



For the same reason the Boer people in South Africa don’t want to leave or the Turks in Cyprus, they’ve been there for a very long time, and they consider that land to be their land, a stubborn child will intentionally do things that don’t benefit themselves just to spite you, and while they might have a better time in Britain they instead prefer to spite the Irish, most of the younger generation don’t care anymore, and just live there because it’s their home, and they know nothing else, the Irish population is rising anyway, and soon the place will be reunited, any that want to leave will do it by then, and the rest will just accept it.



>why can't unionists just fuck off back to England if they want to be british so bad? Seems like a lot of trouble for little benefit.

Why don't white yanks fuck off back to England and leave the country back to Mexico and the red Indians?

Ulster prods have been in Ireland for longer than Yanks have been in the US.

anti semetism is allowed


Debt investments may be acceptable because they can be paid off. I'd still question why you'd need to do it.

Under no circumstances should foreign equity investments be allowed. The whole point of socialism is social ownership of the means of production. If we allow foreigners to own it, then it's no better than domestic capitalists owning it.



Loans from the IMF turned the entirety of Romania into one giant gilded age company town, where the entire economy was geared towards exploiting the people to pay of international lenders. International investment is poison for socialism when not coming from another socialist nation.

Why didn't the world's premier global capitalist power devolve into Fascism near the end of its reign?


47 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Fascism is the antidote to fun, but the British are already hopelessly gay.


The Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family or Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha are a high level German royalty involved with military and landownership and involved with both Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. The Saxe clans manage white supremacist groups and also some black supremacist groups. The flag of Coburg has an African on it. The leadership of the white supremacist groups and black supremacist groups are covertly working together with the agenda of human enslavement. Make Racists Afraid Again is a YouTube agent that works for the Saxe clans harassing people who oppose racist groups. Both of these groups blame Jews for everything and both of these groups are financed by Court Jews working for royals and nobles. Court Jews that work with royals and nobles are not real descendants of the ancient Hebrews. The Saxe families have covert shares in Goldman Sachs and still have residences in Bavaria where the Goldman and Sachs banking families originated. The Saxon nobles married with the Bavarian House of Wittelsbach more than 5 times which ruled Bavaria when the Goldman and Sachs families migrated to the United States. The name Saxe is said to be derived from the Seax knife however it is the other way around. The Saxons originated from a Scythian Tribe of Sakas. The Sakas were related with the more ancient Moabites and later the Kingdom of Ashkenaz located in Scythia which was also related with the Tribe of Ashkuza. The Gepids were a Gothic tribe and descendants of the Israeli Japhetites. Ashkenaz was an Israelite-Canaanite that migrated into Scythia establishing the Tribe of Ashkuza and Ashkenazi people. The House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha were directly involved with the Nazis and the term Nazi was secretly created to honor Ashkenaz. Prince Friedrich Josias of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was a Nazi officer in the Wehrmacht. Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen was accused of being part of a Nazi conspiracy and then later fled to Italy. Charles Edward the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was a politician in Nazi Germany. The House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha were one of the families involved in engineering the Nazis and WWII which was used to persecute and kill off their opposition as well as seize more power. The Saxe family's elder house is the Wettin family. Wettin like wet. They used brainwashing to cause the Nazi movement. The Nazis are generally white supremacists and this also links with the KKK wearing tall pointed hoods which originated with the SakaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



There is both a Babylonian and Scythian branch of Saxons derived from the Ashkenazis. The Sacchetti family of Rome manage some Sachs bloodlines which included Samuel Sachs the co-founder of Goldman Sachs. The Saxe clans have shares in Goldman Sachs. The Savoy and Torlonia families of Italy both have some Saxon origins and the Massimo family have Gothic ancestry. The Massimo family has married with the Saxon House of Wettin through Princess Maria Christina Sabina the daughter of Prince Francis Xavier of Saxony. The Massimos are the head of the Gothic bloodlines. Prince Vittorio Emanuele IV of Savoy's mother was Marie Jose of Belgium of the Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family. Prince Vittorio is the Prince of Naples. I believe the Savoys have some African ancestry just as Coburg has an African on its flag. Africans mixed in with the Moors which were mostly Arab and these African groups within the Moors settled in Naples most of all. The Savoy family and their puppet dictator Bennito Mussolini issued Leggi Razziali under royal decree which were anti-Jewish laws. The Fascists shared a similar ideology as Nazis. Queen Elizabeth II's father George VI was Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Jonathan Sacks was the former Chief Rabbi in the UK and serves the Windsors as a Knight of the British Empire. Jonathan Sacks is an evil pedophile and lying false accuser. The Savoy, Sacchetti, and Massimo families covertly oversee the Saxon-Gothic bloodlines from Rome and prop them up as royals. The solution to dealing with the royal families which are operating as a global crime syndicate is outlawing royalty, dictators, and singular rulers and then declaring these criminals the terrorists that they are and executing them. Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha is the head of this family with his wicked children Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Prince Alexander Philip of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Princess Stephanie Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The Saxe princes are like military generals that command Nazi gang stalkers in the United States and Europe. Prince Andreas has lived in the US. Prince Hubertus has worked as a banker in New York City and Germany. The Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family own about 20,000 acres in Thuringia. Prince Konrad of Saxe-Meiningen is the head of his princely branch and works as a financial analysPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



The Saxon noble families of Germany have a portion of ownership over the Aryan Brotherhood, Nazi Lowriders, and Public Enemy No. 1 which are involved in robbery, identity theft, and other crimes. The Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family also control the Ku Klux Klan and oversee Nazi propaganda. The Nazi Lowriders and Public Enemy No. 1 are allied and mixed in with the Mexican Mafia and Mexican gangs like the Surenos. The House of Hohenlohe-Langenburg are a German-Spanish nobility and they manage some Mexican street gangs. The German-Mexican Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg has a residence in Mexico and manages oversight of criminal organizations owned by the Spanish Hohenlohe-Langenburg line which are the Dukes of Medinaceli. The Hohenlohe-Langenburg family financed Nazi propaganda in Mexico which is why there are Mexican Nazis like the Nationalist Front of Mexico. The House of Saxe-Gessaphe also have a residence in Mexico. In the 18th century Princess Louise Eleonore of Hohenlohe-Langenburg married Duke Georg I of Saxe-Meiningen and in the 19th century Prince Ernst II of Hohenlohe-Langenburg married Princess Alexandra of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. A German branch of the Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family was appointed as the monarchs of Belgium with King Philippe of Belgium, Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Princess Astrid of Belgium and Archduchess of Austria-Este, and Prince Laurent of Belgium as members of the Belgian Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family. The Saxon families use Saxo Bank in Switzerland and Denmark for their stock market rackets. TPG Capital of Texas owns about 30 percent of Saxo Bank with its co-founder and billionaire Protestant James Coulter. The Saxon and Wettin families are partly Protestant and were heavily involved in the Protestant Reformation. The name Sackler derives from Saxon. The Jewish Sackler family in the United States are multi billionaires and founders of Purdue Pharma which is a large manufacturer of oxycodone and other pain killers. Richard Sackler is a top member of this family and worth about 13 billion. The Sackler family have been exposed for pushing their pain killers through the medical industry and causing mass opioid addiction in the United States. The Wettin family produced 3 rulers of Lithuania. Rodney Sacks is a South African-American billionaire and CEO of Monster BevePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Frota, agente infiltradoda Cheka (ui!).

Moro celebrando números menores de acidentes nas estradas, sem perceber (ou ignorando) que isso é, sem dúvida alguma, por causa do desemprego de 13% e gasolina a 5 reais.

Carlito fala que "começa nova fase na vida", deixando implícito que vai parar de fazer merda. Ok, vai continuar, mas fazendo menos. Por outro lado, é, no mínimo, a sexta vez que alguém fala que ele vai parar de cuidar da internet do papi.

Então, viram a Tabatabataba fazendo um discurso "nem de esquerda nem de direta" que parece ser copicola dum episódio de South Park? Veja aí os liberais e os cirandeiros reclamando de "perder uma aliada".



Dunno but nowadays, technocrats is synonym with neoliberals, so it's the usual aut-right claptrap, I think.



Ah sim, a previsão de crescimento do PIB, que começou o ano perto de 3%, já caiu pra 1,71%.

E vocês provavelmente já devem estar sabendo que o governo decretou sigilo sobre os cálculos do famigerado trilhão da reforma, se é que eles existem. E vale lembrar que só os milicos ganharam aumento.

It isn't really. The nationalism in the DPRK is as he described it. It is similar to the socialist patriotism of other socialist states and in no way promotes racial or ethnic supremacism.

Anti-DPRK propaganda is filled with tales of them supposedly "banning race mix!ng", however there is no proof of this and there are several counter examples.

There's also a book titled The Cleanest Race which claims that the DPRK is secretly Korean supremacist and is hiding this from the rest of the world. But the author has to resort to mistranslating the word for "nation" as "race" and retarded speculation about the supposed hidden meaning of propaganda posters to come to this conclusion.



I've seen documentaries where the DPRK officials got super pissed at the camera crew for sitting near a statue. Also a bunch of people were cured of eye problems by doctors brought into DPRK but they all had to praise glory to the dear leader when they were healed and not the doctors… I am familiar with a lot of the antiDPRK propaganda but I think its undoubtedly chauvinistic.

I'm not a liberal. I've been a communist involved the best I can in the class struggle for 12+ years. Every leftist you don't like isn't automatically a liberal.

I do think religions are problematic, but I don't think Buddhism is more of a problem than Abrahamic religions. The dharma has helped me even if I don't subscribe to the more spiritual aspects of the religion. That isn't to say it isn't a problem. The way it was used in Tibet and Southeast Asia to maintain political power is a great example of how much of a shitshow the religion is.

I don't think the influence of Buddhism is to blame for Japan's worst problems. The structure of their political system, adherence to authority, and a history of extreme patriarchy have more relevance. Hell, Shintoism and its obsession with the Imperial family is much more of a problem if we are focusing on religion in Japan. Of course even Shinto as a whole can't be blamed for that as it isn't uniform in its practices across the country.



>Mongolian Stalin

so, Stalin?



>the influence of Buddhism is to blame for Japan's worst problems.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Japan's reactionary feudal system was in place long before Buddhism came to Japan.

The funny thing about Putin is a anti communist in his country, but a communist ally with international politics.



>why did the russian goverment under putin admit that it hapend and that it was coverd up for many years

Because they're anti-communists and it fits their agenda. The Katyn 'cover up' was a fake created during the gorbachev era as one of his excuses to demonize the soviets indirectly by "admitting crimes" and thus help the process of the perestroika to dismantle the USSR.



Either way, those officers were reactionaries.

>Millions of Poles were killed in German death camps throughout the war, and with considerably less sustained outcry from the London government.

>Indeed, only that very month the Germans were annihilating some 50000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto rebellion, and far less was heard from London on this matter.

>Katyn was an infinitely more sensitive issue because the men killed there, as Polish underground leader Tadeusz Bor-Komorowski described them, 'had been the elite of the Polish nation . . .,' that is to say, the friends and family of the exiles in London.

>Whoever destroyed the officers at Katyn had taken a step towards implementing a social revolution in Poland

>, and on the basis of class solidarity, the London Poles felt one officer was worth many Jews or peasants.
