What non political conspiracies/paranormal stuff does leftypol believe in? Are any of you UFOfags? What exactly is it in human psychology that wants to believe in bigfoot, etc. and other such things where people are willing to believe in paranormal phenomenon? And if such a thing is built into human psychology can the vast majority of people ever escape an idealist mode of thought?

Why do I see this brand everywhere? Literally the first time I saw it I thought it was a practical joke.


Nice, I should start browsing /x/

Voodoo physics going hand-in-hand with voodoo economics and politics. Nothing surprising about that really. Fisher was into weird diets, Friedman thought chiropractors contribute to society. There's a book called How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World, and while the author is basically a Blairite himself, he totally shits on the Blairs and the Clintons for all the spirit voo they are into.

Was about to start a new thread but may as well give this thread a bump instead


Found this Chinese movie, other cool movies on YouTube? Particularly Chinese since I'm trying to learn the language but eastern Euro and Soviet kino is good too




No, literally every great artist from the USSR had a contentious relationship with the government.


That the movie is completely overrated and only "good" because it was a competant romance film with sci-fi aesthetics before shit like that became main-stream. Nowadays its peak high-end mediocrity. Stalker and Sacrifice are runnig circles around Solaris.


That's different from not being a Marxist, though.

So I'm reading picrel, and enjoying it so far, but I was wondering if there are any analysis of its critique of yuppie culture/capitalism?

Feel free to share your thoughts regardless, it is a very enjoyable book IMO.

how did he write american psycho?
did he go crazy or was this book meant to critique something else


In addition to >>15587, I think that's just what happens when you get old and stop paying attention to trends, then after 5 or 10 years you see something in the news and it all hits you like a brick wall that you have no idea what is going on, it's all new and scary and confusing, and most people have the instinctual reaction to reject it.

It'll happen to you, too.

But seriously tho, his transition into a reactionary goes to show you the importance of trends and having a consistent belief and theory


I used to read lots of Baudrillard, but now I find this kind of radical critique totally pointless and toothless. It's like complaining about the existence of air at this point.

But if anyone's still interested in this then I recommend checking out early Baudrillard:

>Consumer Society
>For a critique of the political economy of the sign

amazing thread, revitalized my optimism. good work everyone


Jesus fuck in the name of everything that is good start with Deep Space 9, it's unironically based and basically written by commies. Second best is probably The Next Generation but nothing comes even close DS9.


Deep Space 9. Awesome writing in addition to being actually based as fuck.


looks neat as hell very much appreciated

post novel recommendations, I’ll start
The Elementary Particles is a great book, it deals with themes of social breakdown and alienation. On the downside the epilogue is fucking retarted, and the main character is a bit of a reactionary, but it makes sense in context…

It gets a lot better imo, the third is were a lot of people fall off bit its more off closing up everyone's arc as the story moves on

Tiny spoilers; the 4th, considered the best skips a few centuries. The less I say the better, but someone turns into a giant worm God, its a very trippy book


Are the Philip Roth books any good?

What are these series where fictional authors inside his own books tell a story?
What is this kind of story telling


Anyone here read Red Mars or any Kim Stanley Robinson?


Been reading the entire Discworld series. It’s some seriously great world building for just a joke setting. Kinda sad that Pratchett was gone so soon right after writing the long earth series though.

Information should be freely shared with everyone. Media is information. Therefore media should be freely shared, the only cost being the physical storage medium, if there is one.

What's your go-to places for pirating media? Mine are RARBG for movies/shows, nyaa.si for anime/manga, fitgirl for vidya, /edu/ for books.


libgen for books
sci hub for research articles


Pirating from any big coropretion is always morally correct. but we should buy games from our indie comrades, thay actualy recive what their product is generating. and the same with any media, if it is owned by large companies hack it without hesitation.
(I know I'm way off topic, but I wanted to elaborate into the meme)


I agree with supporting our comrades, but it should be done willingly through donations, or (eventually) by the state. Demanding to be paid for every digital copy is merely rent-seeking, and locking digital copies with DRM goes against the foundation of freedom of information.


I like itch.io because a bunch of games from there are "pay what you want". I support that model.

The Hotel Atracción was a supposedly unrealized project of the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí to build a hotel-skyscraper in New York, in the Manhattan area.
