Hey, I'm new to this whole "leftism" thing, but won't have time to read a lot of books for the forseeable future. What are the quintessential lefty channels on YT?

Jimmy Dore does a good job of representing the American left, he isn't a marxist but you don't have to be to support socialism.

I really don't think Dore is good for learning about leftism. Dores purpose is much more getting people in than educating those that are already there imo.
Brooks is probably better for this purpose, but its mostly a news channel so not the greatest for actually learning theory

true, but he affirms anti-zionism, anti-partisanship and pro-worker mentalities. It is useful for a liberal convert in cultivating revolutionary attitudes.

I'm guessing that you've already seen the big lefties on YT (hbomberguy, three arrows, contrapoints, et cetera). As for more on the socialist angle, Badmouse productions is a good place to start, and I'm personally partial to Xexizy.
Seriously, though, do try to get into books. They are far more useful.

Philosophy tube is part of bread tube and sacrifices philosophical rigor for political correctness. He disregards the entire concept of epistemology in his video on trans people because right wingers invoke it to argue about whether people "really" are how they identify, and apparently Olly is too big of a retard to come up with an argument better than "epistemology is uhh bullshit. Don't be like yer dad."

Brayden Young

read the fucking pamphlets you idiot, they were made for absolute brainlets like you, that's their literal purpose.
just in case there's other brainlets:

in this order

- Wage Labour and Capital - Marx
- The Principles of Communism - Engels
- The Communist Manifesto - Marx and Engels
- Introduction to Marxist Economic Theory - Ernest Mandel
- Value Price and Profit (sometimes "Wages, Price and Profit") - Marx
- Socialism: Utopian and Scientific - Engels

do not go looking for youtube channels, they're all retarded and biased, go to the actual sources and read, stop being scum.

Brooks is primarily anti-imperialist I think. A very pervasive, alt-media leftist kind of ideology. He is a self-identified socialist, but much like The Intercept or Max Blumenthal or Democracy Now! a huge part of his concern with current events is tied up in American imperialism. You can see him recently perk up or get heated any time Venezuela is mentioned. I saw some of their coverage of the SOTU, and he was all jokes and irreverence until Trump mentioned vuvuzela and Brooks shushed people so he could listen.

Alexander Campbell
Alexander Campbell

I haven’t been watching him that long but he seems consistently anti-imperialist, anti-neoliberal, talks about a “democratization of the economy” and has segments on Marxist figures (recently talked all about Amilcar Cabral), etc. He’s a lot better than Dore

Christian Hill

People don't post him anymore because he turned into a literal Hillary supporting liberal

Adam Harris

Yeah he's calling himself a "Marxist Humanist" now and supports the Democratic Party.

I give him another year before he does a full Eastern Marxist style turn.

Brody Adams
Brody Adams

Is that true? His blog has no posts about the election or Trump. Either way I think his videos are fine for introducing somebody to Marx's analysis of Capitalism. With the caveat that the person should read Capital, but if the OP doesn't want to read then it's fine enough.

Eli Garcia
Eli Garcia

Brooks is way better than Dore unironically. Brooks is genuinely well read, I have no idea where you got that from, and Dore has literally only read the manifesto so idk why you'd even bring theory up.
Dore is a useful idiot at best. A likable useful idiot, but a useful idiot all the same.

Alexander Hill
Alexander Hill

Because "what if trans people are lying/ not really what they think they are" is a nothing argument not worth a response. It's a claim that's impossible to prove or disprove.
>muh idpol ::DDDDD

Joshua Martin

boohoo Brooks is good actually
No matter how read he is, his opinions still belong in a dumpster fire. Pointing out why libs are stupid doesn't make you a good socialist. Republicans can do that much. But the Republicans at least don't shit on libs and then tell you that you're morally obligated to vote for them. Dore OTOH is much more likely to talk about politics in materialist terms and explain the power and resource relationship going on.

You're proving my point how easy it is to explain why the right wing are wrong about that without saying epistemology is all bullshit. In fact, this is an argument from epistemology:
<It's a claim that's impossible to prove or disprove.
The problem is right wingers are using philosophy wrong, not that the philosophy itself is bad. But Olly is such a retard that he goes full-on "the bad people use this so that makes it tainted."

He still peddles the lesser evil bullshit and condemns people who don't. So even for all his anti-imperialism and being Lenin-curious (he even had a civil discussion about Mao with a caller without sperging out) he still is pretty lukewarm when it comes to taking a stance.

Dore is sometimes uninformed but he goes to places Brooks doesn't dare to go, like possible conspiracies about false flags, etc.

But the conspiracy element is actually another gripe i have with Dore. There are plenty of times where it's alright to think that there's something fishy going on, with the Syrian chemical attack for example, but Dore is WAY too quick to jump to conspiracy theories where they aren't necessary.
It isn't even a Parenti "conspiracies happen" kind of take, its a "everything is a conspiracy" take.

This is actually a result of a lack of theory Imo, if you understand how capital works and the aims of the bourgeois you don't need to jump to a conspiratorial outlook.

Asher Kelly

Reminder that the use of "conspiracy theory" to discredit people is a confirmed CIA psyop designed to defang public dissent. Please point out what unreasonable conclusions Dore has jumped to.
