>>1978>ARTICLE 1: OUR MISSION
The mission of /leftypol/ at leftypol.org is to provide a fun and enjoyable space for the working
masses around the world, as an anonymous community of non-sectarian leftists united in
common cause against the forces of capitalism, fascism, and liberalism. Our goal is to act as a
centre for serious political discourse and less serious informal discussions on various topics
related to leftist thought.
We aim to be the negation of /pol/; anti-fascist, materialist, better read. Our mission, above all, is
to learn, and help others learn, the philosophical tools necessary to elucidate the interrelated and
ever-increasingly complex space of self, society, and politics, from the local to the global scale.
An important part of /leftypol/’s unique character is our opposition to identity politics. We
believe that conflicts between genders, races, sexualities, and so on are distractions from the
wider class struggle that are intentionally fanned by the ruling class. This does not mean that
oppression based on personal characteristics does not exist, but that it should be approached
from an egalitarian perspective which is not personally accusatory and does not assign ‘victim’Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
