In his address to the Communist League of 1850, Marx noted that, while the petty bourgeoisie and its democrats wish to bribe the workers, to increase alms and state employment as much as possible, the means to carry out the program are not universally agreed upon: they are “not expressed by all sections of [bourgeois […]

[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 […]

[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 […]

Nobody can really claim to understand the amerikan tax code. Lawyers try to, and, in fact, they like the way taxation works in the united $tates at the moment precisely because they are the only ones who can even begin to sift through it and draw meaning from the well over 70,000 pages it takes […]

Concocted as a thoughtless jab at opposing press, the term “fake news” has become one of the most powerful political slogans of this year, in fact it was even rated 2017’s “word of the year” by dictionary publisher Collins. Despite finding its popularity as Trump’s infamous catch-phrase, the slogan has been given real power mostly […]

[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 […]

[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 […]
