I am an unbiased, ignorant pleb when it comes to politics. I have somehow been able to ignore all the branding propaganda in the media with Trump and shit, but I just want to start from the beginning. Can you guys recommend good political readings like Marx and such? Possibility even documentaries.
Other people here may give you more classic texts, but it can't hurt to start with something like this.
I'd advise making a thread on /his/ too, we'll be more likely to give you left wing writers, whereas /his/ will lean to more right wing writers. Should give you a nice balance. Always maintain your undogmatic attitude though. Never get sucked into bullshit /pol/ memes like Trump, he is scum.

>start from the beginning
We don't know the beginning. I would maintain that you can't understand politics without understanding a good chunk of philosophy - that is why it is in so many courses of political science. So read some of the early and later chapters in A History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell.
