Bookshops of the Bourgeoisie - Red Youth
A theme which often surfaces in contemporary depictions of socialism in literature and popular culture is the use of restrictive controls on the sort of books people in socialist countries had access to, encouraging a notion that bookshops only sold volumes of Marx and Lenin. Accompanying this is the notion that western literature was totally […]

(I’m sick of pretending being rouge, and furthermore, this empty comment will be the proof that marxism’s an instance of censorship culture, but, above all, it’ll be the demonstration, not the proof, of why I’ve got a own fabricated color, a thing that I own and choose to own it.) The most hated idea for me is the stupid assumption, and vastly supported by the majority of Marxists and socialists, that being no capitalist makes me a supporter of your causes, *re tarded dialectic I’m not part of your fought, there’s any side to take, there’s any synthesis; embrace the fire of postmodernism and choose one side from where you could analice everything. And, please, not pretend that you’re the victim for living in the obscurity, you’re outdated. The imperfect and fragile freedom has won. Update and ponder yourself, read your opponents and in the process poison your mind, because, if you’re a real fighter of the freedom, you’ll discover your own antidote for your foes’ and allies’ ideas. I’m pretty drunk, so ignore all, it’ll make me suffer xD.

Thank you for your word salad, it was certainly interesting to read.

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.
