Did someone say communism?

CPUSA member reporting. I keep my Marxist-Leninist rhetoric out of stuff like this, since it's too delicate of a community. But I welcome private talk.

heya I'm an IWW member of my local branch, although I do not align with anarchism I am sympathetic towards anarchist thought. I just don't think it is sustainable long term, but Revolutionary Catalonia gives me hope.

Idealistically, I would be an Anarchy-Syndaclist., but we live in a liberal Democracy, so I align myself with the Social Democrats, as it is the only way to bring humanity in a capitalist system.

As for political parties, I align myself closer to the Green Party in the US than the Democratic party and I have voted third party in every election I could vote in.

I was born in 1995, so i'm kinda in the middle between Zoomers and Millennials.

Unaffiliated leftist here! Not officially active in any orgs at the moment, but always trying to be knee deep in news, history, and theory. I’m still learning, but am sympathetic to an Anarcho-Communist synthesis. Also, decolonial work is what I want to really get a better hold on.

Hello.


Glad to see this website doesn't comprise more or less exclusively of "libertarians"

I'm a vague, 21st century socialist.

Anarchist here, but maybe more left communist, communalist or municipalist. I've been greatly influenced by the especially German and Dutch Autonomist movement and inspired by the Kurdish approach to direct democracy.

I've identified as leftist for what seems like nearly two years now and I'm still not sure where I lie. At any given moment I can be anywhere between ancom and demsoc.


Maybe I'll find my true beliefs some day. Whether it comes through discussion with other leftists I encounter or reading theory or whatever - I dunno.

cool thread. i personally think classifications and labels while useful can be tricky and make it difficult to communicate with pissed off people on the other side what ideals you actually stand for when all they know is irrational skews, lies, or dramatic political events and eras that are tied to certain terms. i guess its good to be a leftist or progressive but even on twitter i see leftist coming to be the new term that is starting to get hijacked the way liberal was, but maybe that's just the natural result of terms getting recognition and getting bigger or movements aging and having normal human problems? idk. 


i do sometimes try to avoid politics even though everything is political because you just need to focus on life and crafts itself without going into an ethics wormhole all the time, but i also find myself more and more intrigued with how ethics is connected to everything (especially now that environmental disaster is apparently impending) 

anyways i guess i mean its better to have good ideals and want to promote things like rank choice voting, ubi, defund or abolishing police etc. in ways that logistically will work and have the best ethical outcome but i wouldn't ever trick myself into thinking everyone can sit around typing walls of text to try but fail at pinpointing what their ideal for some progressive philosophy is, i guess i just felt like leaving a more complicated post that outlines some of the characteristics and considerations i've noticed the last few years

Hello, fellow communist identifying perselves. I can never find the time or focus to read/listen to theory but I would love to have a conversation with an Anarchist onsite & I could prolly switch to identity as one.

I'm not sure where I would peg myself on the political spectrum. Given what I have witnessed in the past twenty years of my life, I have to say that I am skeptical (at best) of consensus politics - internationalism, neoconservatism, open borders, free trade deals, etc. Of course that sort of skepticism isn't necessarily shared by those just on the left; I'm aware that there's a VERY online contingent of right wingers who share those apprehensions to some degree. I wouldn't say that I am a leftist because the idea of revolution resulting in positive change is utopian. I'm more of a social democrat; a New Deal Democrat but without a particularly strong identification with the Democrats.

I might qualify if you spell Zoomer with a "B"
