For current events there's Professor Wolff's Economic Update and The Jimmy Dore Show. It's useful to keep aware of the news in context.

Guess I better stick to books, but I'd like some alternatives, guess users on this forum are more worried about their identity as a communist than communism itself.

Thanks, Libertarian Socialists Rants (like Badmouse and others) are good as an entering point, but they're not particularly thought provoking.

I'm familiar with some you mentioned but not others, I'll check them out.

Something similar to Zero books would be great, they are thought provoking and engaging.

Connor Taylor

See, with comments like these is why my impression of you is bad, it just reveals your impotence and lack of dedication. Because regardless of the facts (If I read Capital in 2 weeks or not), the fact you wrote that is pathological. Like Zizek says, if a Husband thinks his wife is cheating, even if it's true, it is pathological.

You're more worried about having the correct appearances of the communist identity (by projecting onto me) than communism itself.

Still sad how you make this personal, when I criticize you is not your own selves in your petty lives which I couldn't give a fuck about, but with communism in mind, as if this was about my time, so stop worrying about me and my time, and worry about how to get out of the mess we live in.

I really don't get this at all. Mexie is so clearly an actual marxist, yet people on leftypol always call her a liberal.

Probably, she does have a small focus on idpol but overall the content she puts out is pretty consistent with most standard Marxist beliefs with some idpol shit to attract normalfags. Contrapoints on the other hand is a fucking socdem who does constant philosophy semantics around race and genders that sometimes completely ignores material conditions

Veganism isn't inherently liberal though.
I get it if people dont like Mexie, that's fine, but calling her a liberal is just inaccurate.

I watch contrapoints, but i wouldn't argue she's any sort of marxist. She's very likable but in terms of economic politics she's way too moderate. A succdem is better than a bogstandard liberal though, imo.

The only difference between the output of majority of the liberal idpols who write opinion pieces for the Guardian and Mexie is that Mexie makes the odd comment about socioeconomics. So does Owen Jones. She's a liberal. That being said, it's hardly surprising that a Contrapoints fan like yourself wants us to adopt this material. The real mystery is why you're posting here rather than in one of the pro-idpol communities.

Robert Ortiz

She has made multiple videos about capitalism and imperialism. Seriously, look at her channel. Idpol based content is a minority of her videos.
Regardless, i use this board cus its fun. I'm not even fond of idpol really, I do think it can divide the working class if implemented poorly, but if we want to make a popular movement im sorry but we have to accept that some people in that movement are gonna support idpol.

also, a lot of the "anti-idpol" people on this board are just reactionarys in disguise, and engage in their own idpol

This is a dumb post, jesus christ. Mexie pretty often talks about marxist philosophy. Just because she doesn't jam pack it filled with marxist terminology like some sort of out-of-touch autist doesn't mean anything. It's even more impressive considering she's arguably from the intelligentsia, however I'm not sure what her current profession is. Same goes with Contra.

I recommend any serious Marxist dismiss claims of "liberalism" in someone unless the facts prove otherwise. They don't with Mexie or Contra.

huehue animals are gay
But consider the following. Christian Wittgen said:
Of course, you have to take Marx’s own theoretical development into account. You will find bits in his early work: eg, On the Jewish question, where he empathetically makes reference to Thomas Münzer, arguing that creatures must be liberated too. Ditto the ‘Paris manuscripts’, where he argues that the world we are fighting for will be one where humans are naturalised and nature humanised. These are also some relevant passages in the early philosophical works, where it is evident that Marx had a different view of the relationship between society and nature than some ‘classical Marxists’ did.
To give you another example, there is a paragraph in The German ideology where Marx displays a genuinely historical-materialist understanding of our relationship to animals. But you will find references in all stages of his theoretical development, including where he undertakes a comprehensive analysis and critique of capitalism: ie, Grundrisse and Capital. Take the end of the 13th chapter of Capital volume 1, where Marx - having described the formal and real subsumption of productive forces - plainly states that capitalism exploits not only labour, but nature as a source of wealth. You will find near identical formulations in the Critique of the Gotha programme - something that today’s left prefers to ignore.
Susann Witt-Stahl:
There is a very interesting, though commonly overlooked, footnote in Capital volume 1, where he reports an observation he made on a farm. What Marx finds remarkable is the difference between the way humans treated animals when they were serfs and the way they treat them as doubly free wage labourers. As serfs, they viewed animals as fellow sufferers which, like them, were utilised as means of production and therefore endured the same mode of exploitation. When they moved up a rung and became wage labourers, they began to beat and abuse animals, as they were now told that they were free human beings - even though they actually remained unfree and were exploited in a different manner.
Of course, Marx is not primarily concerned with the suffering of animals here - although I am under the distinct impression that he does not like it very much, or else he would scarcely mention the cruelty of it all. As you know, Marx never writes in an indignant manner, including when he depicts human misery in the factories; he offers descriptions, which constitute his critique as well as his outcry. To me, that footnote demonstrates that Marx realised why we view animals as dirt, objects or beings that may be disregarded: because we exploit them. It is not the other way round. And that’s where most Marxists turn into pure idealists. They say: ‘Oh well, animals are inferior, they just serve us as means of production’. They never wonder what determines this view in the first place.

I'd rather you posted Marx quote itself than a third person talking about Marx. How many different interpretations of the same sentence are there? The only way we can discuss is by having Marx quote itself.

Actually not even that since Communism and Marxism is not reducible to Marx,, but anyway

plainly states that capitalism exploits not only labour, but nature as a source of wealth. You will find near identical formulations in the Critique of the Gotha programme - something that today’s left prefers to ignore.

This is a fact, not a moral statement, Marx does not say that exploitation of nature would end after a post capitalist society (if he does, link it), the difference is exploiting nature for profit or self consciously for humanity' sake.

<The only way we can discuss is by having Marx quote itself.
If you click on the link, you will see some sources. "Take the end of the 13th chapter of Capital volume 1, where Marx…" However, the German chapter sequence is different from the English version you are more likely familiar with, it's chapter 15 there:
In modern agriculture, as in the urban industries, the increased productiveness and quantity of the labour set in motion are bought at the cost of laying waste and consuming by disease labour-power itself. Moreover, all progress in capitalistic agriculture is a progress in the art, not only of robbing the labourer, but of robbing the soil; all progress in increasing the fertility of the soil for a given time, is a progress towards ruining the lasting sources of that fertility. The more a country starts its development on the foundation of modern industry, like the United States, for example, the more rapid is this process of destruction. [245] Capitalist production, therefore, develops technology, and the combining together of various processes into a social whole, only by sapping the original sources of all wealth — the soil and the labourer.
marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1867-c1/ch15.htm
Now for that quote by Witt-Stahl:
What Marx finds remarkable is the difference between the way humans treated animals when they were serfs and the way they treat them as doubly free wage labourers. As serfs, they viewed animals as fellow sufferers which, like them, were utilised as means of production and therefore endured the same mode of exploitation. When they moved up a rung and became wage labourers, they began to beat and abuse animals, as they were now told that they were free human beings - even though they actually remained unfree and were exploited in a different manner.
I do remember such a statement and one comparing how slaves would be more violent to animals than free laborers, though I can't remember where exactly in volume 1 to 3 that happened. The assertion by WS should be uncontroversial. The description of animals as a type of machine like in Descartes is not something you will see much in writings from antiquity or the early middle ages. You probably have heard of stories of animals getting convicted in a court. Put one and one together. It shows a completely different view of nature (not that I'm for getting back to that completely, whipping the sea for killing people is a bit too much IMHO).
