We welcome our new members from r/GenZedong
pin
Over the past few days, with worries of r/genzedong being banned, we have seen a major uptick in new accounts created. The admin team at Lemmygrad and, I'm sure, the whole community as well would like to welcome you here! Lemmygrad is built by communists and for communists, there is no censorship here and no worries about being banned for being Marxist-Leninists. Lemmygrad is not too different from what you're used to on Reddit. We have our own c/genzedong community, as well as unique communities such as c/palestine, c/prolewiki, c/feminism and even c/me_IRA, which is very much alive and well on Lemmygrad. Some other advantages of Lemmygrad over Reddit is our federated aspect (anyone can make their instance and federate with us), our ML community, and of course our hands-off approach. There are no investors to please here, there are no CIA agents moderating content. You can talk about piracy, you can say what you want to do to fascists, without being reported by a lib and suspended for it. We have had to enable account applications for a while now as we were under a fascist raid not too long ago, but please be assured that we get around to approving accounts very, very quickly. Finally, if there is anything that you need help with regarding lemmygrad, please feel free to ask in this thread! We hope that the switch will not be too confusing for you, and that you will adopt lemmygrad as your new communication and memeing platform!

I copied over the Marxism-Leninism study guides from r/communism in case the subreddit gets banned, should be a useful resource for beginners

Communist chat through Matrix
pin
I created a matrix room for anybody on Lemmy to join. The main goal of this chat is to bring people together and use the internet for organizing. Organizing locally is still the best way to get things done and this or any chat rooms over the internet should be considered complimentary because the material conditions and strategical peculiarities vary according to the nation you're in. Tasks in mind: - Bring comrades from other social media to communist Lemmy - Promote periodic discussions, quality posts on Lemmy - Do a collective research or essays on chosen subjects, translate them, and share through private social media. - Produce propaganda to share on private social media. Remember, our strength depends entirely on our historical and personal commitment to organization. We alone cannot do much, but together we'll have enough forces to make a difference.

Is the UK starting to lose its imperial core privileges?
Due to inflation, energy crisis, worsening pay and conditions, increasingly authoritarian right wing govts, the impending collapse of the NHS, higher education entry criteria choking the number of graduates, etc. I'm reasonably sure the final straw would be a currency crisis. A stable currency *feels* like imperial privilege. Has anything been written on this? The characteristics of imperial core countries, I mean. I'd be interested to know if there are any examples of countries that have ceased to be core countries that have been analysed through a Marxist lense.

vtubing and capitalism
well...i'm a fan of vtubers, specially from hololive, mostly in the idea that i like to watch clips and music videos and songs of the girls. but i'm not what you'd call a "simp": a person who gives money to the entertainers...in my journey through that rabbit-hole, it's kinda complex the idea of having fun without violating marxist principles. because, well...vtubers and streaming are based on consoomerism of the highest level, a toxic fanbase who think they're "chads" for giving a small fortune into the pockets of a spectacle girl, and a haterbase who always try to make "face reveals" of the girls, doxxing them, etc. given the scandals around china with that girl coco speaking about "china taipei" aka taiwan, or the big issue with rushia uruha and her boyfriend, ruining the "girlfriend experience" promoved by the capitalist cover corp, i understand that the vtubing phenomenon, even when it's pretty interesting the idea of an "anime girl" making a kinda customized content, the idea of the broken girls who work as vtubers and the profit motive, what do you think about the vtuber scene? -what is worst, cover, voms, nijisanji, wactor? -and what do you think about the vtubing scene? (sorry for my english errors, i'm ESL btw)

Thoughts on Participatory Democracy
I'm not as clued up on theory as a lot here. I've read quite a bit of Lenin and understand his arguments against Parliamentary democracy. What I struggle with is understanding the alternative. I've heard people on the left use the term Participatory Democracy but like all terms it seems to be adopted by the right leading to popularism and referendums. Is the term something Marxists use? If so what's a good source on the topic? If it's not what term should we use? Thanks in advance. I hope my question makes sense.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
