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 latest casualty in the war between the u$ navy and the concept of competence, the u$ guided missile destroyer USS Benfold sustained light damage yesterday after colliding with a Japanese commercial tug boat that lost propulsion and T-boned the nearly 2 billion dollar danger-canoe. Sadly, no one was hurt. Although Benfold got away with […]

It has been a little over 10 years since the formation of the Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement as an independent organization, and the creation of Anti-Imperialism as its official media organ. Since then, the global political landscape has changed radically through the deepening crisis in capitalism-imperialism and rising political currents. It would have been hard to […]

In 1915 a plan was circulated to begin an uprising in February of that year to throw off white rule. Ambitious, internationalist and bursting with the hopes of a submerged nation, the manifesto called for retaking the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and California, to proclaim them a separate Chican@ republic, to restore […]

Trump has once again coaxed “civically conscious” liberals into putting on a passion play of imperialist propaganda, to, in effect, “show Trump how imperialism is really done.” Every time Trump produces one of these sideshows (you can practically set your watch by these types of distractions from his flailing administration) the imperial left responds with […]

If there’s a God, he waited too goddamn long. u.$. eques, and Grand Ole Man of the carpet bombing, John McCain, has been diagnosed with (hopefully terminal) cancer. The Butcher of Belgrade, the Crown Prince of Kabul, the Benefactor of Baghdad, the plutocratic/plutonium pencil-pusher extraordinaire, who has for decades appropriated monies for, cheered at, and […]

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 following is an attempt by your friends here at Anti-Imperialism to apply to the u.$. the same journalistic standards which it reserves for its enemies. Sadly, the result is much more cogent and only slightly satirical.] Late Wednesday night, the u.$. regime tested its anti-ICBM systems over an outpost on one of their isolated […]

By Miguel Campos They came from heaven. Where there is plenty of everything. Cloaked in death, reeking of blood. They descend upon the Wretched with an insatiable hunger. Some come armed, wielding the fruits of their research. Weapons made from the blood of their conquest, and guts which roar with anticipation of their next meal. […]

[Originally written in 1971, The Tyranny of Structurelessness was primarily intended to serve as a constructive criticism for the radicals in the women’s liberation movement which had largely fallen into disarray and was moving increasingly toward irrelevance. The process was already underway which, motivated by an ascendant postmodernism and poststructuralism, had begun to destroy the […]

by Nemequene Tundama [The following piece was originally hosted by TeleSur, and is republished here with the permission of the author.] When you think of Western capitalism and imperialism, what usually comes to mind are aggressive superpowers such as the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany and so forth. Northern European nations such as Norway, Denmark, […]

“It is a book about imperialism and anti-imperialism… it is a book written by an activist for activists.” – Torkil Lauesen, author. Indiegogo link here <<<< What better way to kick off our return here at Anti-Imperialism than to highlight a book seemingly tailor-made for our readership. Regular readers will be familiar with Torkil Lauesen and […]

Recently an article was republished by several websites, most notably the Huffington Post, about a transgender model and activist who has recently posed with a large dress made up of the flags of 76 countries which have made homosexuality illegal. This stunt was, naturally, celebrated by the liberal media outlets as an inspiring move toward […]

By Comrade D. [The contributor of this piece is a certified Judo coach and has participated in numerous antifa-type actions. While they are an experienced comrade, this article is intended primarily to help comrades avoid serious injury from knife-attacks during actions and not as a way to disarm or overcome knife-wielding reactionaries. As a general rule, […]

Introduction Recently I had the chance to see the independently produced “faith based” film God’s Not Dead. The movie, taking name from Nietzsche’s famous exclamation ‘God is dead’, has received quite mixed reviews with the overall consensus being fairly negative, at least on behalf of critics. Some of which is to be expected of an independent “faith […]

On the new Dialectics online radio show, Glenn Spaguolo spoke with Nikolai Brown about the history of colonization in Hawai’i, a recent FOIA request which revealed US meddling in New Caledonia, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Next week, Gregory C. Lewis from All Power to the Positive joins to discuss the 20th anniversary of the Zapatista […]

Anti-Imperialism.com dedicates this excerpt from “Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha”, by Roddy Doyle, to Võ Nguyên Giáp. “The News was boring but sometimes I watched it properly, all of it. I thought that the Americans were fighting gorillas in Vietnam; that was what it sounded like. But it didn’t make any other kind of sense. The […]

A new axiomatic phrase is making the rounds in the hollows of Amerikan culture. ‘YOLO,’ abbreviated for ‘you only live once,’ is meant to capture the attitude of freewheeling youth. Used to justify sometimes risky pleasure-seeking, YOLO enthusiastically expresses the individualistic hedonism prevalent within petty-bourgeois circles. One does, in fact, only live once. For communists, […]
