[Written by W.E.B. Du Bois for The Atlantic Monthly of May 1915, the following, ‘The African Roots of War’, (edited for length and relevancy to the modern reader) explores not only the root of European inter-imperialist rivalry and war, but the type of state—one born of an uneasy partnership between labor and capital—that the parasitic […]

Why do workers in the […]

By J. Sul Introduction JeJu island which is known to be the most beautiful island in South Korea has become one of the most controversial geopolitical locations in the nation. This is mainly due to the imperialistic policy of the US and the militaristic affiliation it has made with the South Korean government: the installation […]

By Marx Peterson On September 11, 2001, the world changed. When the twin towers came crumbling down on live TV in front of millions of people, the American psyche was shaken to its core. 3000 people died on that day in what is undoubtedly the worst act of terrorism to ever occur on US soil. […]

I can remember the morning quite vividly. Walking into our kitchen after school, I saw my mother crying with her face against the table and the television on. I asked my mother why she was crying and she responded, “Terrorists attacked us!” This puzzled me because I could not understand why tourists would attack anyone. […]

Famous Singer executed by firing squad! … only to show up alive, grinning, and well on national television!

In this article, I would like to delineate some problems with the current form of Third Worldist discourse and propose an alternative conceptualization meant to put Third Worldism back on its original track – that of revolutionary anti-imperialist politics. Doing so requires a self-criticism on the part of Third Worldists, who have generally understood (or […]

Recently I have come across a conceptual distinction between two methods of carrying out the mass line. The two formulations are: unite the advanced, win over the intermediate, isolate the backwards unite the advanced, bring up the intermediate, win over the backwards I feel this distinction is significant and has to be addressed, with the […]

[The following was originally written in 1905 by Lenin as a set of directives to communists during and after the events of the revolution of 1905 that established the quasi-parliamentary system in Russia.
