[The following intervention by comrade Basanta elucidates further the crisis and opportunity faced by genuine revolutionaries in Nepal following the liquidation and merger into the NCP on May 18th. For another revolutionary perspective on these events, see Baidya’s intervention. Both texts were originally hosted on Banned Thought, and have been edited here for grammar. As always, […]

[This open letter, first published by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) in 2009, after the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) won a majority in the government and Prachanda was made Prime Minister in the country, bears a number of important lessons for us now. The situation in Nepal now is different than it […]

[Theo V. Kenji is an aspiring agrarian sociologist and co-founder of the Radical Reading Collective at UC Irvine.] By Theo V. Kenji “What to do?” (53). A short question with a very complex answer. In The World We Wish to See, Samir Amin delves into the contemporary political conjuncture with a succinctness and ease that belies the […]

[This article was originally published by MIM(Prisons) in issue 61 of Under Lock and Key and represents the culmination of a long investigation into the necessary preconditions of a united front and peace within prisons. This is not a topic which is dealt with lightly, and certainly not one that can be simply whisked under the […]

  [This letter was originally published at Pambazuka News, dated July 12, 2017, in response to an invitation extended by the SACP to the South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) to attend their National Congress. SAFTU, after careful consideration, declined their invitation on the grounds that they had participated in a long series of […]

Fundamental to contemporary discussions of imperialism and anti-imperialism are the First-Worldist and Third-Worldist tendencies, which have distilled as the magnetic poles around which the two-line struggle is fought. However, as is true in all other struggles of political line, we must clearly define what these two poles represent in order to focus comrades’ understanding of […]

[This document was originally published in the 11th Issue of People’s War (the theoretical organ of the Central Committee of the CPI(Maoist)) and deals with the campaign to bolshevize the party as a response to the serious setbacks experienced by the party in the wake of the military operations under Operation Green Hunt. This document is […]

[The comrades of the PCV provide, within the umbrella of the Bolivarian revolution, a sober analysis of its limits within the framework of social democracy and capitalist dependency. We agree with our comrades in Venezuela that, in order to survive, the Bolivarian Revolution must proletarianize. History and the unstoppable masses have been pushing the revolution […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. If their claims are to be believed there will be demonstrations in more than a dozen cities including Chicago, Boston, Austin and Los Angeles. The organization itself has […]

It has been nearly a month since the action at Charlottesville shook the political terrain in the united $tates. Without a doubt we will be spending many more months unpacking the serious consequences of the events as they unfolded, and the new situation we are faced with. Many have already issued statements, analyses and criticisms, […]

[This article was originally published by the Revolutionary People’s Party-Front, a Third-Worldist, Communist organization working in Serbia. The article was intended to be read primarily by other Third-Worldists, and while we at Anti-Imperialism.org have seen the article before, we feel that its contents have proven of such importance that we must republish it here to […]

A common ground for liberal and communist activists alike for quite some time has been in opposition to the so-called “Military Industrial Complex” (MIC) and the bloated military budget. However, on this common ground we must (as in all shared political space) conduct a ruthless ideological struggle that will ultimately decide the direction of the […]

By Zak Brown Summary of my points: 1. Protracted People’s War is not Universal. 2. Speculating on universal revolutionary strategy hurts the project of revolution. 3. Developing new theories of revolution requires us to challenge theoretical continuities, investigate, and ask new questions. 4. Asking new questions does not absolve the project of revolution; its a prerequisite […]

By Zak Brown Introduction First, congratulations to JMP (internet moniker of Joshua Moufawad-Paul) for the release of his book, The Communist Necessity, which has received widespread praise from readers. Hopefully the book does well to popularize a communist politic within activist circles. As with all dialogue and engagements we hope to promote civil discussion and […]

Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Chapter 6: Planning and the Rule of Law As the title would suggest, Hayek begins chapter six by promoting what he refers to as the ‘Rule of Law’. While many legal and political interpretations exist of the ‘Rule of Law’, Hayek importantly draws distinction between his version of […]

This work, written by the Russian neo-Marxist Alexander Tarasov, originally from scepsis.net (http://scepsis.net/eng/articles/id_10.php), explains some problems with the Soviet strategy in relation to world revolution (albeit coming from a negative appraisal of the USSR), clarifying the distinction between First and Third World characterized by exploiting nations and exploiter nations, the dependence of the First World […]

Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Chapter 3: Individualism and Collectivism The title of this chapter is in my own opinion quite a misnomer. In fact, Hayek spends as little time as possible truly outlining what he considers to be “collectivism” or “individualism” beyond a rudimentary appraisal in the first few pages. Most of […]
