Originating out of the class conflicts in the capitalist economies of the imperialist core of the late 19th century, the labor aristocracy has become the most significant variable in contemporary class analysis. It is the most important aspect of any serious study of the nature and hierarchy of classes in our present world. In its […]

Its goal is to enhance cooperation of the countries of this partnership in regards to border protection, but as well to plan and promote the defense of European borders as a whole. […]

Given the ever-increasing turbulence in the euro-amerikan alliance, it would not be unrealistic to entertain the idea that a tipping point could soon be reached, and europe may soon be done with their long-standing imperial partner for good. Increasingly important infrastructure, trade and investment deals with China and Russia, the largest competitors to the united […]

Following the latest act of criminal escalation by u.$. imperialism, with more than 100 cruise missiles fired into Syria as a “warning” to the Assad government, the accelerated demise of the forces holding shut the floodgates of inter-imperialist war is evermore apparent. The political machinery of imperialism alone threatens us with the next world war […]

By now readers are probably aware that the shoddy ‘Russia did it!’ tapestry so giddily hot-glued together by Boris Johnson, Theresa May, and the London media establishment has unraveled, along with any hope for stability, let alone credibility, for the May government. It’s now clear that Yulia and Sergei Skripal have both made a miraculous […]

[The following is a speech delivered on behalf of the Communist Party of Ireland at the 18th conference of the International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties in Hanoi, 2016. Although we do not endorse the narrow economist slippery slope of anti-austerity-centred politics, especially in an advanced (though below european average in living standard) global […]

[Originally published in English on the website Red Star Over Donbass, translated by Greg Butterfield, this article underscores the destructive transition in Ukraine up to and after the western-backed coup by the neoliberal Maidan movement.

[The following chapter is excerpted from Politico-Economic Problems of Capitalism (1968), by Eugen Varga, entitled “The Labor Aristocracy after the Second World War” whose content is self-explanatory. Included are our notes to the piece, meant to re-align and expand the conception of the labor aristocracy presented here, which suffers from several key defects, notably those of distance […]

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 […]

Contrary to popular belief, the social-imperialist Brezhnev regime in the USSR, standing in Khrushchev’s tradition, was not simply accepted by the Soviet population, even less so by Soviet workers. The early 70’s were marked by a marked increase in the number of dissenting socialist publications, poems and even large-scale strikes that were crushed in true […]

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 […]

It is halloween, and nothing is more terrifying to an amerikan than Third World resistance. All evidence points to a strengthened Afghan resistance, defense secretary Mattis himself has said “I think the Taliban had a good year last year […] Right now, I believe the enemy is surging.” With new tactics and morale, both the […]

It has been nearly a month since the action at Charlottesville shook the political terrain in the united $tates.

The frenchman is a strange creature. What can we say about it with any certainty? Some things we know for sure: It is highly xenophobic, belligerent, prone to attack without provocation, and exhibits very little awareness of irony, as evinced, for instance, by past anti-gay protests undertaken by strapping, shirtless young men. Having established at […]

The austrian social democracy has shown, yet again, their strong will to collaborate with the knowingly right-wing extremist freedom party of austria (FPÖ). This is not a new phenomenon in the first world, at least recently. Even in austria, in the 90’s, there has already been a “social-fascist” coalition, which however did not last long […]

It is no secret that the united $tates has been warming up to the possibility of a Kurdish state, primarily in Iraq and Syria (and depending how far the relationship with Turkey deteriorates, perhaps in that country as well), and has been working alongside Kurdish nationalists in Iran for decades now. Until recently they have […]

“Superficial and reactionary measures, especially when pursued through law, will have no other outcome but to clear the way for future crises by intensifying existing polarizations… These behaviors are unjust and we all know that pursuing injustice has the unwanted characteristic of reversibility.” —Ayatollah Khamenei, in his second letter to the western youth following the […]

By Nemequene Tundama [Nemequene Tundama is an anti-imperialist activist based in Quito, Ecuador, originally from Muisca Territory in Colombia] There’s little doubt that Jeremy Corbyn has consistently, more than any other British politician, challenged neoliberal and conservative politics for decades.
