Can someone recommend me some leftist books that aren't complete liberal/progressive tripe?
Also another side question, is third position worth looking into? From what I've briefly read, it kind of sounds like more reactionary shit.
The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
Capital, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
Imperialism The Highest Stage of Capitalism, by Vladimir Lenin
The State and Revolution, by Vladimir Lenin
A decent starter pack.
Third position tries to figure out what worked in systems that have been out of fashion in the west for a while, and then apply those benefits in ways that work out for as many people as possible.
A possible third position opinion would be to support a separate nation for black people, not as a quarantine for subhuman a but as a way to heal the broken dignity of an enslaved people and promote community cohesion in both the black nation and the remainder of the United States. On the same issue you can have far right positions that rely on petty expressions of racism and left positions that rely on grand expressions of racism or trying to wipe out race entirely.
any good works on marxian ufology or proletarian occultism?
Slavoj Zizek: Welcome to the Desert of the Real, First as Tregedy then as Farce.
I'd recommend Revolution at the Gates, for a re-reading of Lenin in the 21th century and as an overall nice introduction to Zizek
Look up the Argentinian trotskyist Posadas in regard to UFOs. On early bolshevik occultism and geopolitics check out Andrei Znamenski. Another book to check out is the Occult in Russian and Soviet Culture by Bernice Glatzer Rosenthal. Jacques vallee also wrote a book about ufo sighitngs in the Soviet Union.
Third position as a political stance is very valid and very worth looking into because it is reactionary. There are times when such forces are necessary and I would say these are necessary times. The issue is that there are no good authors that follow the position. Most are very simple in their writing as it is not their primary means.
Miss me with that white nonsense. Any and all Marxist thought is implicitly in support of progressive ideals; unless you want to create some nightmarish Pol Pot society, you should be as well.
