School of the Left

Recommended Posts

Freien    106

This is a new project, I firstly talked about a couple of weeks ago. Every member of a NSLeft region can join and non-members who just want to participate will be accepted too. That means SoL is open to everyone. But what is it? The School of the Left will include two separate activities: 

  1. The Intelligentsia, which will be about serious discussions concerning the leftist movement. Although by the name it may sound 'elitist', it isn't. I just suck at choosing names. A theme for a discussion will be given and anyone will be able to state their opinion and participate in it by answering to others. Pretty simple. Anyone can start a discussion. However, it is suggested to add something that will indicate what this is about in the title (start with SoL: or intel: for example). There will be at least 2 different topics a month. 
  2. The Study Group, which will attempt to educate 'students' by providing material which will be discussed by the group. This material may include: short passages from books/essays, articles from websites/blogs, videos from YouTube and maybe other similar stuff. Material will be provided by me, who will be in charge of managing this, probably once a week at the beginning. A specific duration will be better decided after seeing this working on practice. I would like everyone who is interested in this to comment below, in order to help me understand if there is sufficient interest in order to kick this off. Nevertheless, you can join at any time by commenting to a relevant topic.

More activities may be added in the SoL. If you have any suggestion or interest to organize one yourself, feel free to contact me via a TG in NS or in Discord. 

The first topics will be opened soon.

I think this is a wonderful idea comrade Freien and I'd be honored to take part. I'm sure there are at least a few other comrades from North Korea who would like to participate as well.

Didn't expect that many people to be interested from the start. Exciting! First post here:

Same here. By the way, what is a non-Trot Techno-Posadist? I know that Posadism is, generally speaking, a Trotskyist current.

Cheers,

Well, uh, funny story?

Um, when I first wrote this it WAS a pure meme, and for the most part, it still is. However, I have familiarized myself with Posadas' work (and dedicating an entire issue of TLA's newspaper to discussing and defending him) and whilst I still do think Posadism is more silly than other socialist currents, I do think some of Posadas' ideas about the future have some merit, and would certainly be a great source of any socialist transhumanist thinking.
