On February 25th the high court in Mumbai granted bail to comrade Ajith, a prominent member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), after being held for nearly 4 years on charges related to “objectionable material” found at his residence.

In response to the u.$. recognition of the treacherous comprador Juan Guaido, the president of the equally treacherous national assembly, as the “legitimate” president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has moved to cut all diplomatic ties with them.

By way of an order issued December 19th to his cabinet and staff, Trump has called for a “full and rapid” withdrawal of amerikan troops in Syria, stating “[w]e have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.” This has caused an uproar among legislators and the brass, who […]

Falling short of its supposed purpose of honoring peace and abhorring war, They Shall Not Grow Old confuses audiences with a face-value acceptance of the most generic recountings of british soldiers ultimately in favor of the war. The film itself should be regarded as squalid propaganda, and while a bit more self-aware than the likes […]

By Comrade Marté Capitalism, the final epoch of class society, can be described in the simplest terms, as sickening. That is to be taken in the most literal sense, as in, capitalist society renders the masses of people forced to live in it literally ill.

[Presented by Mao at the 9th Congress of the Communist Party, Correcting Mistaken Ideas remains vibrant and useful to comrades struggling today. Its value does not lie only with military affairs, nor affairs of formations with pretenses to a party.

Most readers will not, by now, require a recapitulation of the condition and origins of the so-called ‘migrant caravan’ currently stalled in Mexico. If so, one might begin here, here, and here. What we seek to do is clarify the class-nature of the crisis, the enemy, and the position of the proletarian camp. Like most […]

The NYPD is recalling nearly 3000 body cameras used by New York pigs after an apparent malfunction caused one to combust. Boot-licking bureaucrats wasted no time in releasing a statement on the “paramount importance” placed on officer safety, and that they would immediately recall all bodycams from the particular manufacturer. They say it is purely […]

The imperialist media has played the principal role in the ballooning moral drama following the murder and apparent dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, a contributing journalist for the Washington Post, by the Saudi state. The seemingly endless propaganda drive for “justice” has once again exposed contradictions within imperialist state, putting Trump’s party and regime in a […]

In a reversal stunning absolutely no one, neoliberal ideologue Francis Fukuyama has abandoned that thoroughly sunken ship known as the “end of history” thesis, presumably after shutting off the lights and donning a snorkel. The series of half-hearted defenses of his almost 30-year-wrong position, which were really just half-hearted disavowals, were issued in a recent […]

[Originally published in July of 1920, during the Second Congress of the Communist International, the following was intended to set the foundation of the new party model and set the practical agenda for all Comintern members.

With the deadline for negotiations on a british departure from the e.u. fast approaching, the reality of a “no deal” brexit is becoming increasingly likely.

[Originally written in 1973 by Audre Lorde, this poem—alternatively known as “Postscript to Karl Marx”—encroaches on the reality of the modern Labor Aristocracy in the imperialist core countries.
