Gonna make a Christmas gift and maybe get stuff with the Holiday sales.

That being said: hooo boy, I got a full plate.

I’m:

  1. Trying to do university

  2. Trying to read for my communist BookTube channel and do reviews on books.

  3. Learning another language.

  4. Helping out at ProleWiki or at least hoping to get back to it.

  5. Trying to do research for my novel.

  6. And doing a nonfiction labor history book.

^ Of course, it’s not like I’m doing all of these at any one time, but I need some help prioritizing a bit. What should I research next? What books or articles or studies should I look into? Anyways, I think that I need some pointers.

Also, if you simply want to suggest a particular topic, go ahead. It doesn’t have to be what I’m interested in down below.

As for what I’m interested in:

-Organizing and social work (I want to one day start a mutual aid organization of some sort)

-Writing (looking for books on writing and the craft of writing)

-Psychology (anything on Soviet scientists like Vygotsky would be nice)

-Africa (and not another “read about Sankara” suggestion, but more info on Amilcar Cabral, Patrice Lumumba, the country of Angola, maybe a book about Robert Mugabe during his “better years,” etc.; basically, all African leaders, not just Sankara)

-Class and labor history; could also include books about tricks, tips, tools, and tactics of the trade. But yes, labor history would be nice.

-AES (Vietnam, China, Laos, DPRK, Cuba, and I guess the other countries that have big communist movements but aren’t necessarily in full consolidation of power, such as Nepal)

-Other (basically, get creative with your suggestions)

Anyways, I’m compiling of list of potential stuff I’ll get for Christmas, especially during the Holiday sales, so maybe I’ll post it down below soon to give all of you a better idea of what I’m looking for.

Aside from that: what info are you all trying to look into? Any books, websites, things you’re involved in, that you’re trying to do or find out more about?

A “Life under communism” page and pages explaining some socialist or communist implementations like labour vouchers would be helpful!

Sure thing! I’ll tell the others.

For writing Random House Handbook, its more oriented toward academic writing grammar, punctuation etc, it cost like a dollar when I got it long ago for a class, so the price was right. It’s a good reference book to have on hand.

Thank you for sharing with us, comrade, we appreciate it. This may not be the community suited for it, but considering Lemmygrad has been also inactive lately (when compared to what it was at the beginning of the year), this post shouldn’t be a problem.

We shouldn’t worry, I think, our comrades are still committed to this work, and this work takes time. We should investigate, however, why we have been inactive too. It’s not just because we’re busy, we have been losing active comrades, too. Anyways, this deserves a different post, and I don’t have much time to investigate that as well.

I will also make a self-criticism on my negligence of Lemmygrad. After doing much work and basically handling ProleWiki mostly alone lately, I have been having trouble organizing comrades both in ProleWiki and Lemmygrad. My work in PCB has been also very active, which hampers any work on our networks. I am not to blame for my negligence, I have been very busy, and I stopped contacting our comrades on the Matrix chat too, which is awful. I don’t think I’ve been able to handle both works.

A lot of us are very busy the end of this year. ProleWiki and Lemmygrad has been inactive when compared to other times. I have no idea if we should worry about this or not, because I have no idea what has been causing this. Is there any reason the end of the year would make us any busier?

At this point, I’m just going to ramble what’s been on my mind, since it’s been a long time I’ve posted anything here. ProleWiki and Lemmygrad are two different works which has the same purpose; to make communication of ideas easier between Marxists-Leninists.

I think we need to make an effort to join the administration of both ProleWiki and Lemmygrad into one administration. We need an organized effort if both projects wish to survive. Would a centralized organization change anything? What are the implications of such thing? I have no idea, but I felt like sharing this idea.

Interesting. I’ll talk to Desslines/Muad_Dabber about this. All I can say is that you echoed some of my thoughts. Let’s just consider this a phase in our work. It happens from time to time. But we can’t get depressed with every ebb and flow of our work. We’ll continue what we need to do and that’ll be the end of it. Build up what we have going for ourselves over time. People will definitely join us.

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.
