[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. […]

[Originally published on Kersplebedeb.com, these notes serve as a useful way of looking at the global political shift we are currently experiencing in the world today. Pushed forward by an increasingly powerful movement of far-right, ultra-nationalist revanchism and the loss of confidence in the neo-liberal model. In the context of global imperial capitalism, it is vital […]

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 […]

[ANTICONQUISTA is a Latinx collective dedicated to exposing and fighting imperialism in Latin Amerika and the Caribbean. They provide analysis of history and current events in the region from a communist, anti-imperialist, Third-Worldist and pan-Latin Amerikan perspective. We at Anti-Imperialism ask that our readers show support for these comrades and their project, as it is an incredibly important […]

[In his autopsy of the Second International, Lenin sets out the symptoms of revolutionary situations (which do not always result in revolutions). In this epoch of crisis and the future promise of greater crisis, we feel that the left is under-equipped to diagnose a revolutionary situation. As always, the present excerpt is provided for the […]

It is an unfortunately common thought within the timeline of communist movements that a focus on individual advantages of workers could lead to “fair production and distribution” in a socialist society. Prominent revolutionaries, who are lost to a path of revisionism greet us at every turn. Liu Shaoqi, Deng Xiaoping or Nikita Khrushchev; just to […]

By Qamar B. Sex work will not continue under communism. This may be obvious to many of our readers, however it has been a continued source of controversy, to such the degree that we find it requires more investigation. While it is inevitable that sex work will, in some ways, regrettably continue into the initial […]

[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 […]

By Freya B. If there is anything that can be identified as “Marxism,” it is the Marxist method, both in theoretical and political practice. On the level of theory, this Marxist method is dialectical materialism—or if one prefers, a materialist dialectic (emphasizing that what makes a theory materialist are the mechanics of the dialectic itself). […]

By Jaime Dixon; comments from the editor at the end The consumerism generated by capitalist imperialism in the ‘Developed‘ or ‘Western’ world is the main obstacle to tackling climate change, a major problem facing all of humanity.  So the next question must be: why is capitalism still so widely accepted? Why do workers in the […]

By Marx Peterson There are two theories of how world revolution will emerge in the 21st century: the theory that the Western proletariat will have to seize control of Western nations in order to spread socialism to the Global South (also known as the Third World), and the theory that the Global South will first […]

an infamous “struggle session” underway  Introduction and Method As readers comb through tendencies and currents of Marxism, the system of thoughts known as ‘Maoism’ always catches an eye. Perhaps because of its historical connotation with guerrilla movements, people’s wars, popular armies, and the like. Perhaps because of its conflation with a more (albeit ‘totalitarian’) simplistic […]

One of many reasons dialectical materialism is deemed incomprehensible is because it formulates concepts based on relationality. Due to that unique philosophical nature, the interpretation of the concepts which disregards their relationality has been contributing to the ambiguity of dialectical materialism. However, ambiguity is the least harm such misinterpretation causes. The interpretation disregarding the relationality […]

This article has been reposted here from the Southern California Young Communist League. Check out the original website. Every year people in the United States come together to celebrate the Fourth of July, this country’s independence from British rule, this country’s white men—and to a lesser extent white women—independence from British rule, this country’s occupying […]

Mike Ely and myself share many commonalities. We desire a better world, understand this can only happen through socialism, and have confidence that such a socialism can only emerge via class struggle and revolution. Between these areas of unity, we have many differences, largely stemming from different analyses of class structure in modern society. In […]

Review: The Worker Elite: Notes on the Labor Aristocracy The Worker Elite by Bromma, recently published by Kersplebledeb, is a must-read essay that offers a corrective lens to both normative First Worldism and ‘crude Third Worldism.’ While the book is lacking in a few areas, it offers a clear and concise argument which will likely […]

In two major articles already on anti-imperialism.org, we have defined in a preliminary way how we conceive of Global People’s War, and what we consider to be the basic role of revolutionaries in imperialist countries today. The theory of Global People’s War and what role First Worlders are to play in it of course needs […]

By Zak Brown The Necessary Material Conditions With the growth of the imperialist system, the labor aristocracy has become more important than ever for an understanding of capitalism-imperialism and anti-imperialist politics. Many organizations which recognize themselves in the latter are developing and have developed political lines regarding this strata of society. In this essay, we […]

In Marxist theory and analysis, the proletariat is a social category that is a central topic of analysis and discussion. Nevertheless, confusion abounds among Marxists over what exactly the proletariat is. In fact, much to the consternation of many normative Marxists, RAIM has developed a line which unequivocally states that a majority of the workers […]
