Hi everyone! I'm sure a lot of you have been wondering where we've been, since we haven't posted in a while. The truth is, it's been a bunch of boring and personal stuff. I have been helping take care of a family member who is recovering from surgery and Luna has been working hard on the translation for the Historical Materialism book, which is now probably about 50% done. The translation editing is pretty much finished and now we are filling in the annotations and making graphics!
But we do have some other news that we wanted to share, and to thank you for your patience we also wanted to give you all a 15% site-wide discount on everything in our webshops (including the Dialectical Materialism book, which has never been on sale before!)
SAVE 15% on our webshop through the end of December with the code:
You can use this code at non-compete.com/shop or any of our other shops (Banyan House and LunaOi.com) - keep in mind that all our shops have the exact same products :)
So here are the updates:
NEW VIDEO coming THIS WEEKEND
The video is on Oppenheimer, "Congo Muller," and the colonization of Africa after World War II which was set up by the USA and Nato and implemented by literal Nazis. Keep an eye out for it in the next couple days, hopefully!
NEW PODCAST coming EARLY NEXT YEAR!
Grant "The Slopstache" and I are setting up a new podcast which will detail the reactionary history of the USA (with an emphasis on liberalism and the anticommunist "left," which doesn't get talked about enough). The first season will be detailing the reactionary founding of the USA by the so-called "founding fathers." Incidentally, our next video will be a documentary version of Parenti's founding fathers lecture from his Real History series, since we met the goal for that fundraiser! Stay tuned here and we'll keep you updated throughout the production process of the podcast!
We here from many of you all the time saying you have to pause supporting us on Patreon due to financial problems. We are always okay with that, since we know times are super tough, and we appreciate any support you have given us at all. Now, Patreon allows free Patreon memberships, so if you need to pause payments you don't have to cancel. We are considering making ALL our Patreon/Comradery updates free to all Patrons/Comrades. Would that piss you off if you are a paying member? We don't think it would. That's not why you support us here, right? But if you have issues with that plan, sound off in the comments!
BTW, we hope that Comradery will also unlock free tiers soon. As soon as they do, Comradery will become our official "home" for behind the scenes stuff, but until then, Patreon will have to take center stage since they can offer the free subscription tier!
We now have shirts with our new logo! I think it looks neat. Get it here, and remember to save 15% with code 15freakinpercent
Our new years resolution is to finally start paying better attention to our Patreon and Comradery. I really do enjoy keeping in touch with all of you, and now that Patreon is allowing us to host video here we can probably do some messier, less polished content just for y'all. Thanks so much for all your support so far!
