hi I'm new here and don't really know what to ID as (leftist is likely accurate) but
-I hate gerrymandering, the electoral college, and the lack of secularism in the US
-just want socialized medicine and am very passionate about it
-corporations and capitalism must be dismantled
-I'm collapse aware and am frustrated more people are not aware
-honestly terrified I won't be able to marry my partner because we're both women
-not stoked on losing my human/bodily rights because of religion and general ignorance

hello comrades. my background is in biological science so I admittedly do not know much about sociology, political science, theology, etc etc but I hope to learn some new things from info you guys share.

Welcome!

I donít think itís a necessity to know your ideology, but it can help. i struggle to identify as anything beyond marxist, just bc I believe historical materialism and class analysis will always lead us in the correct direction for leftism. On the other hand it feels like a cop out, as our material conditions are ever changing so the correct analysis to guide our praxis might elude us. i guess I feel like marxism is a great tool, but one that can be tricky to use?

if anyone is interested in marxism, a book that helped me was The Marx-Engels Reader (Link to PDF). I remember reading the introduction and how much it resonated with my feelings towards the world.

-just want socialized medicine and am very passionate about it

Iím happy youíre here, caked. I am a marine scientist so I know that feeling of fish out of water.

Iíve been meaning to read this 1975 essay on healthcare with a COVID-updated introduction (Link to PDF) but havenít gotten to it yet. Sounds like it might be up your alley!

Here is a great lecture from Rick Roderick, with this bit of wisdom:
"If you live by an ideology, the most dangerous ideology to you is your own, because someone may expect you to do what you say."
Sadly he didn't live to see Mark Hamill play him in the third Star Wars trilogy.

That gray streak defends torture, which is significantly less cool than fucking.
Aloha, not for everyone apparently.

Blowback podcast season 3 is about the Korean War. I've been listening to it and it's really good so far.

https://pod.mtndewamp.com/blowback/

A war that's been "forgotten" for very intentional reasons but learning its history sheds a lot of light on American foreign policy in Asia and anti-communism.

It really is. Most people have only heard the official propaganda version that the north invaded the south and the US stepped in to save Korea from the commies.

On another note, holy shit Roger Waters is based AF. Makes me wanna get more into Pink Floyd.

Regurgitating Pro-Russia talking points about the invasion of Ukraine is not based. At all.

Waters' heart seems to be in the right place but I wouldn't consider him an intelligent observer. A fellow traveler but not too bright.

Watching that interview...there's nothing he says that's outright bad. Simplistic, but not totally cringe. He's talking with a moron so it's relative.
