  1. It has an embassy with the region Leftypol, which is notorious for housing brocialists and Nazbols. On that basis, I veto.
  2. The Democratic Socialist Assembly has withdrawn its vote and is abstaining.

    Left theory vocabulary

    Marxists.org has an encyclopedia that contains a glossary of terms. Dialectics Materialism Bonus: Dialectical Materialism Praxis
  4. To give comrades some broader context to the vote as it has gone down in our comrade regions: The Leftist Assembly ("based on the very recent overwhelming support to establish an embassy with SLU, which has now occurred") and the Democratic Socialist Assembly both voted FOR in executive actions. The Red Fleet voted AGAINST in a vote by the Admiralty Board. North Korea voted AGAINST. NK members cited SLU's lack of a military and some SLU members referring to other members of the NSLeft as "authoritarian left". The Federation of Anarchist Communes has not yet concluded its vote, but members have raised concerns over the fact that SLU "dismissed the prospect of mutual defence" and re-iterated concerns from North Korea about SLU's members not being committed to antifascism.
  5. Dear Comrade Members of The Internationale, Social Liberal Union has voted to ratify the Solidarity Pact of the NSLeft. As a member of the pact we are obligated to vote on whether they should be accepted as a new member region or not.
  6. I will support a veto because Soviet Union only meets our embassy requirements on a technicality. The WA nations present in the region are predominantly TRF or KPA soldiers and sailors who have not yet withdrawn. There are not enough native WA nations to accept an inbound embassy request; that doesn't mean that we can't initiate embassies by proposal of a comrade member. However, I would still veto a proposal by a comrade member to construct embassies with Soviet Union because the founder account is currently held by a defender Gameplayer, not by the original native founder. If the embassies were being constructed with the democratic will of the native inhabitants of Soviet Union, I would support it, but that's not currently the case. No matter what, The Red Fleet will continue to defend regions with important names related to the real-life left, including Soviet Union. Perhaps someday their region will be strong enough with enough native activity to responsibly build embassies.

    NS Issues Thread

    There are two schools of thought on this. The first is to go through an NEP route and transform your economy into a capitalist system, get your economy up to Frightening, and then nationalize industry to have a strong socialist economy. The other way is to promote government initiatives to build the economy strictly through state projects without going through private enterprise. I personally went with the NEP route and it worked fine.
  8. That's a bug. With legislative polls, the numbers are checked before a result is announced.
  9. That's why there is the $50 registration for students/those on fixed income. There is also a form that comrades can fill out if they want to attend but can't afford even the $50 registration. Besides, it's not necessary for everyone to be there personally. Communities can get together, come up with a list of local issues, and send a delegate to the Congress.
  10. Comrades in Amerika, here's something y'all should be aware of: http://www.congressofresistance.org/ The People's Congress of Resistance is a political project that aims to put together a working people's congress in opposition to the US Congress—the Senate and House of Representatives who are beholden to and only care about the ruling class. It will convene in September of this year at Howard University, an HBCU in Washington DC. The Congress will meet to put together a platform and vision for real resistance (read: not voting for Democrats) to not only the odious personality of Donald Trump but the policies he, Pence, and all of the ruling class are pushing and benefit from. The people (and the organizations they work with) who have come together to convene this congress include: Professor Jared Ball (Morgan State University, iMixWhatiLike) Dennis Banks (co-founder and National Field Director, American Indian Movement) Juan Jose Gutierrez (Coordinator, Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition) Mahdi Bray (Executive Director, American Muslim Alliance) Kevin Zeese (Co-Director, Popular Resistance) Dr. Margaret Flowers (Co-Director, Popular Resistance) Anoa J. Changa (Deputy Director, MPACT) Professor Jodi Dean (Hobart and William Smith Colleges) Berthony Dupont (Haiti Liberte) Professor Vijay Prashad (author and journalist) Karina Garcia (Justice Center en El Barrio) Jonathan Hutto (Coordinator, Prince George’s People’s Coalition) Eugene Puryear (Stop Police Terror Project DC) Neal Sweeney (Vice President, UAW Local 5810) Dr. Henry Clark (Executive Director, West County Toxics Coalition) Jim Lafferty (Executive Director Emeritus, National Lawyers Guild Los Angeles) Dominic Moulden (Resource Organizer, ONE DC) Yasmina Mrabet (Community Organizer, ONE DC) Akbar Muhammad (Int’l Representative, Nation of Islam) Gloria La Riva (Party for Socialism and Liberation) Brian Becker (National Coordinator, ANSWER Coalition) Cindy Sheehan (author/activist) Registration is open now - $150 to help sponsor another comrade's way, $100 as a standard registration, and $50 for students or those on a fixed income. There's also a form to fill out if you want to attend but can't afford even the $50 registration.

    The Making of a Leftist Chart

    Again, it doesn't really make sense as tactics and strategies must change for each moment of revolutionary potential. No two revolutions are alike. We don't study the Bolshevik Revolution to try and copy their tactics, but to identify the strategies that worked for them in their material conditions.
  13. The Red Fleet scored three hits in its first tag run after reorganization. To better serve European comrades, whose participation has been limited by a lack of opportunities due to the lack of a trained European officer cadre who could select targets and organize operations, The Red Fleet Admiralty Board recently voted to redistribute its members into two new Squadrons: the Huey P. Newton Squadron, serving comrades of the Americas, and the Sankara Squadron for European, African, and Asian comrades. Sailors were assigned to the new squadrons based on their residency, and several sailors were promoted into the officer cadre outside the normal promotion procedure to jump-start the squadron's activity. Experienced officers from the Huey P. Newton Squadron have been working with these new officers to get them up to speed and able to organize independent operations. While the officer class is being trained, regions remain vulnerable. Three such regions fell under the crosshairs of the Fleet tonight. First, four sailors, all from Newton Squadron, swept into Conservative Confederation early in update. The region was selected for its long list of fascist embassies. As sailors faced some downtime waiting for their next target, a sailor from Sankara Squadron logged in and joined the gathering. The next target was United States 0f America—a popular target, apparently. Sailors from The Red Fleet jumped into the region first, but were followed shortly after by sailors from the Royal Navy of the Kingdom of Great Britain. Seeing two groups of raiders move in simultaneously brought the attention of The Grey Wardens, who attempted to endorse the former RRA defender point. When the dust settled, The Red Fleet had taken the WA Delegate seat. Quickly tearing down the stars and stripes, the forces of The Red Fleet hoisted the banner of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea over the shattered region. But jubilation could not last, as a final target rapidly approached. With no time to spare, two comrades switched out to fresh puppets and jumped blindly into the final target, White Peoples Union. Immediately after arriving in the region, the Fleet point was elevated to WA Delegate, allowing the Fleet's ensign to fly victoriously over the racist hellhole. These successful tags will be studied by the up-and-coming officer cadre as they prepare their own operations. Comrades interested in joining The Red Fleet should fill out a Rate Application. No previous raider or defender experience is required! View full article

  15. It really is. And it highlights that Trump is only a temporary manifestation of our real enemy. The Democrats have built up their "resistance" around not being Trump, which is not going to help them against Pence.
