Which constructed international language is best?

Esperanto is the most well-known but has many flaws and has no interest in correcting any of them.

Ido is an improved Esperanto but that's like calling it the thinnest kid at fat camp.

Novial is pretty good but it splintered too much towards the end and never recovered.

Occidental isn't bad but it reads like "Novial v0.7".

Interlingua tries hard but it reads like it wants to be all things for all people and winds up being nothing good for anyone.

What's leftchan's take on international languages?

I'm a looser burger that only knows one language and part of another language (korean) but I have never actively used it so I lost my ability to speak it really sort of fluently at all.


I'm not sure what you are looking for. You haven't mentioned Lojban, that's also a semi famous constructed language. It tries to be syntactically unambiguous.

>What's leftchan's take on international languages?

here is a list of most commonly spoken organic languages (native and non-native combined)

1. English 1,348 b
2. Mandarin Chinese 1.120 b
3. Hindi 600 m
4. Spanish 543 m
5. Standard Arabic 274 m
6. Bengali 268 m

About not listing other conlangs, your point is valid. I could have listed off another 20 or so but didn't want to overburden the initial post.

Why does the holocaust matter? Fascism is inferior on an ideological plane prior to any 'sins' of deed.


>Why does the most horrific and large scale genocide matter lol?
<Why does history matter!?
<Why do real life issues of fascism matter!?
Imagine being this much of a retard


Dont care didnt read didnt happen


At least you're sincere when it comes to admitting your immunity to reason


David Cole is now selling his old revisionist shit in auction. Who's gonna bid, m8s?

Any places or youtube channels where audiobooks are available? I found a few audiobooks on youtube but those aren't enough.


Librevox has a whole ass youtube channel. It's where I first read the communist manifesto, actually.


Thank you. I'm open to book recommendations as well, particularly written by Lenin.




state and revolution


Thank you. I started listening to it. So far quite good.
Not going bothered with those. Knowledge must be free for everyone.

>He was willing to acknowledge his own (and his fellow Bolsheviks) lack of qualification (and also noting that elected officers were not a great idea) and hence left field command to the 'experts' essentially.

This lack of idealism fill my heart with joy;


very cool
interesting, and yes >>6813 I've often believed even i my own life, if the goal needs a certain objective achieved, get the best person to use their skills to achieve it and put one's personal ego aside

probably how while I've not recieved many promotions in my life, I've always been able to get a better job or more compensation for less work via "this dude is chill and helps be do the thing I like doing, let's hire him/give him more days off"

Did the Cambodian Genocide happen? Is picrel true or full of shit? If it happened, was it justified? Was Chomsky right to deny it at the time? Will this OP reach 200 chars? So many questions, so few answers.


I can't speak of Pol Pot's "achievements" and whether he's worth defending or not, but Michael Vickery is legit and anticommunists have certainly inflated the death toll while trying to whitewash the damage they themselves caused in Indochina.




vickery is an anticommunist too

Who this dude
Mexican Revolution seems so big with a lot of alliances and shit

Who were /ourguys/?


He is, or was, Emiliano Zapata, the leader of the Southern Revolutionary Army. He lead mostly an army of peasants and workers in the southern part of Mexico, mainly in chiapas and Oaxaca.
If you ever heard the slogan "Land and Liberty" it was actually made by him, or his army. Also he was pretty based as far as I know, he wanted to redistribute land and end thw cacique and hacienda system, which was like slavery but with extra steps.

He was murdered by the carrancista army and the southern revolutionary army disbanded along, this was due a buncj lf factors, mainly because Carranza wanted to consolidate its power after the Decena Tragica, in which Francisco I. Madero was also murdered, by I cant quite remembrr his name.

At the end, the murder of Zapata and Villa left the revolution under control of the carranzista forces.

On Friday, 2021-10-29, at 21:30 EDT and 18:30 PDT, a friend and I will be reading "Abolition of Work" by Bob Black[1]. We last read "Civil Disobedience" by Thoreau and criticized it from leftist perspectives.
What is the best platform for hosting the discussion on to share it with leftychan? We're currently using Discord[2] because it has less problems than Zoom/Facebook/Google but has better moderation tools than Jitsi Meet. Discord is also more accessible for "the general public" than Matrix, etc.
Also just generally paging for interest I guess

Anything related to socialism, anarchy, communism and so on.

Hello everyone, we have received the results of our project proposal topic, and I'm delighted to announce that we are teaming up with 'leftypedia' to deliver our planned 'argument/talking point resource' idea. In case you don't know, leftypedia is the current version of the old abandoned 'marxistpedia' which was a project started by leftypol users back in the day, so I think this is sort of like a homecoming in a way.


Anyway, if you have a look at the leftypedia site you might be able to tell that they have a much more formal and 'encyclopedic' tone than what we're planning, just like wikipedia, but the admin is going to create a separate 'category' for our new content that will be called something like 'rhetoric: topic' rather than just 'topic', this will also feature on the frontpage much like the encyclopedic content. As a tenplate, I'd like you to feast your eyes on these pages which someone on leftypedia already made (albeit only on their personal userspace for now).


I'd like to ask if anyone can come up with a slightly more catchy name for our new section than 'rhetoric', cause that sounds a bit cumbersome to me even though I came up with it, so yeah, open to suggestions.

So, since that isn't implemented yet, I'd like you all to try familiarise yourselves with the site for now, maybe take a look at the articles that are already there and improve some of them if you feel able. Unfortunately the site currently has only edit by approval so you will have to wait for any changes you make to be approved, this is because of a persistent spambot problem and I hope that we will be able to work out something to change this to normal editing as on wikipedia and the like, please just bear with it for now.

If you have an answer to a 'common question', or you have an effortpost you'd like to archive and save, then please post it in this topic for now so that we can work on it together until we can figure out how to categorise our new section of the site.

Thanks for your attention!
