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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

[credit: Al Jazeera] [credit: Vice]   Ferguson is on fire The little town just 20 miles north of St. Louis made national headlines a few days ago when protests turned to riots over the death of unarmed 18 year-old Black resident Michael Brown. Riots since then have only intensified and clashes with the police becoming […]

Saturday, August 9th, 18-year old Michael Brown was shot dead by police after what they called a “struggle over the officer’s weapon”. Witnesses claim Brown was no threat to anyone and was simply walking in the road when officers told him to “get the fuck on the sidewalk”. Despite this he was shot 8 times […]

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 […]

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 […]

Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Introduction The purpose of this multi-part series is to debunk the thesis put forward in F.A. Hayek’s seminal work The Road to Serfdom; wherein, he suggests that Western Civilization had been moving towards socialism and that this was ultimately a road to destruction and servitude. Much of what […]

It’s far too easy to be caught up in the theoretical squabbles between leftist groups on the internet. Everyday we take the same tired path often filled with self-important rhetoric and the sermons of the endless radical preachers often encountered. But what is the purpose? Hopefully to bring attention to our ’cause’ and the work […]

Recently, Kasama Project (a post-Maoist organization) released a criticism[1] of what they termed “parasitism theory” (a misnomer for the analysis given by ourselves at Anti-Imperialism.com and other Maoist organizations) and what we term the theory of imperialism. The article, authored by Mike Ely, attempts to challenge much of what has been said regarding the labor […]

Introduction You work for it; you work with it. You need it to survive; you survive to need it. You’d steal for it; maybe, if the price was right you’d even kill for it. It commands armies, nations, and public policy; often times it means life or death (quite literally). It is both celebrated and […]

Who is Being Profane? It’s not often I use profanity to ‘make a point’. Some would suggest such profanity is even unacceptable in context of a serious discussion. But with respect, what is more profane: the use of expletives or the fact that Black persons are incarcerated at six times the rate of whites? Rephrasing Malcom […]

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 […]

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 wish to contribute […]

Disability is socially constructed. You are marked as disabled by society when the category of people associated with your “abnormality” cannot access things the rest of society can readily access and take for granted. For example, people who are deaf are classified as disabled based on the fact that the majority of us can hear […]

The recent BP oil spill into Lake Michigan has spurred some thoughts on the issue of money within our contemporary social order. Precisely so because of how this event has seemed to stir popular intrigue into the social relationships within capitalism and its relation to our natural conditions. On a small anecdote, as far back […]

Oppression under capitalism takes many forms. It would be entirely incorrect and class reductionist to claim the only exercise of oppression in class society is that between the worker and capitalist. In fact, capitalism reproduces a host of repressive social relations including that of patriarchy, racism, homophobia, transphobia, national oppression etc. One generally under-examined oppressive apparatus is that […]

Analysis of Classes, Trajectory of Worldwide Revolution, and the Problems of First Worldism As has been outlined in the work of various Third Worldists and those near it, the world is not as simple as the dogmatic ‘Marxist’ understanding of ‘workers vs. bosses.’ Moreover, the precise explanation of ‘who are our enemies, who are our […]

By Nikolai Brown In a crass yet frank admission, Bayer CEO Marijn Dekkers said the company’s new cancer drug, Nexavar, is not “for Indians,” but “for western patients who can afford it.” The statement came in the wake of a recent ruling by an Indian court that certain life-saving drugs could be produced and distributed […]
