In the First World especially, the vision of housing in the future has increasingly tended toward the small, “minimalist” and often recycled homes that we see advertised in science and innovation magazines. So-called pod homes, shipping container houses, modular flats and even recycled water pipes have become not only a vision of life in the […]

It has been almost two years since the success of the british nationalists in the Brexit vote. Where have they gone? Nationalism, although still a simmering threat throughout the First World, seems to have been defeated, at least temporarily, in britain, not by organized anti-fascism and a strong working class movement, but by their own […]

There’s been a lot of buzz in the mainstream media and the moribund neoliberal establishment over the hope for disintegration in the opposing camp. They pour all of their hopes and project all their fantasies onto the protests in Iran, and make international shows of support for movements they seem to know very little about. […]

[A poem by Bertolt Brecht, written in 1940 while in Finland, To Those Born Later (An die Nachgeborenen in the original German) was meant as a message to those who would be building communism in the later generations, having surpassed the violent class wars and revolutionary struggles in socialist construction. As always, this is made available […]

By now most everyone is familiar with the situation in Honduras, wherein the incumbent neoliberal stooge, Juan Orlando Hernandez, and the corrupt electoral tribunal (TSE) have tampered with the vote in order to block the Bolivarian candidate, Salvador Nasralla, from rightfully taking the presidency. For those who are not yet aware of what has happened, […]

Nobody can really claim to understand the amerikan tax code. Lawyers try to, and, in fact, they like the way taxation works in the united $tates at the moment precisely because they are the only ones who can even begin to sift through it and draw meaning from the well over 70,000 pages it takes […]

Undoing the historic land reform initiated by ZANU-PF in 2000, Zimbabwe’s new administration, under the leadership of Emmerson Mnangagwa, has returned seized land to the the first white farmer in a process he hopes will restore Zimbabwe’s agricultural success. Robert Smart and his son Darryn returned to their former farm about 200 kilometers east of […]

The Trump regime has unveiled its new strategy for National Security in the era of “amerika first” policy-making. The regime’s hope is to stabilize the evaporating amerikan dominance by reorienting amerikan security policy from one predicated on diplomacy to one built on overwhelming force—hardly a novel concept in amerikan foreign policy. The new plan rests […]

In a surprising move, the Pakistani Air Force has ordered their pilots to shoot down any drones which enter their airspace, including those of the united $tates.

Of the many contentious debates currently burning among the communist left is that concerning freedom of speech and the extent to that we should—or shouldn’t—recognize it. It is a complicated question that deserves deep investigation. As with all of the “rights” we rent from bourgeois society, they are never as they appear and the realities […]

The heroic struggle of the Yemeni people continues on, intensifying with every passing day. They are besieged from all sides, yet have achieved spectacular victories in their struggle for independence against the imperialist coalition and the traitor “president” Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who continues to depend on the backing of the world’s chief parasites for everything […]

Concocted as a thoughtless jab at opposing press, the term “fake news” has become one of the most powerful political slogans of this year, in fact it was even rated 2017’s “word of the year” by dictionary publisher Collins. Despite finding its popularity as Trump’s infamous catch-phrase, the slogan has been given real power mostly […]

It is Thanksgiving day in the united $tates, and among celebrations of imperial plenty, we must look to remind people at whose expense this country and its treasures were won. We should ask ourselves the very difficult question: How do we get what we have? The holiday itself is already steeped in an unsavory, genocidal history […]

[Originally published in Notes from a New Afrikan P.O.W. Journal, Book 7, in 1981, and republished in Meditations on Frantz Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth in 2010, this article represents something absolutely fundamental to any relevant theory of revolution against colonialism in north amerika. It is required reading for any principled anti-imperialist, and is representative […]

A little over a month ago, in a room of uniformed military commanders and the press eager to catch a glimpse of the new presidential aesthetic, Trump referred boastfully to a “calm before the storm” that their meeting represented. Characteristically coy, and perhaps uncharacteristically restrained, Trump bid the press wait and see what would happen. […]

Marking the 99th anniversary of the armistice that ended WWI, we are faced with a historic impasse as communists and anti-imperialists in the core countries. A grand inter-imperialist war that ultimately tested the resolve of so-called “progressives” that could not bring themselves to oppose what they saw as an opportunity for national glory. It was […]

In a public letter to amerikan lawmakers, which was quickly funneled to international news agencies, top pentagon officials talk deliberately on options in deploying military force against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In the letter, Rear Admiral Dumont, vice director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, makes clear that “The only way to ‘locate […]

A controversy over animal rights and tradition has been sparked over the recent public slaughter of a pig by two local butchers in Switzerland. The act was met with swift and dramatic outcry from animal rights activists who opposed the slaughter, decrying such acts of public cruelty.. More absurdly, some had taken to comparing the […]

The RCP mass organization “Refuse Fascism” has hyped a series of planned nationwide protests planned for the 4th to create popular momentum for ousting the Trump administration.

In the Free State province of South Afrika the local government has officially inaugurated two statues dedicated to the communist and anti-imperialist fighters against colonialism in Afrika and the world.
