[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 […]

Today we celebrate the centennial of the Great October Socialist Revolution, the watershed of the subsequent era of communist power that really began in 1917, invigorated once more by the second world war, reached new heights in 1949 and 59, and petered out long before the millennium with the fall of the decrepit Soviet Union, […]

In a public letter to amerikan lawmakers, which was quickly funneled to international news agencies, top pentagon officials talk deliberately on options in deploying military force against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In the letter, Rear Admiral Dumont, vice director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, makes clear that “The only way to ‘locate […]

In the “controversial” opinion of Colombia’s Attorney General Nestor Humberto Martinez, the solution to the problems of the campesinos in Colombia with regards to their coca crops is the forced eradication of the crop through government programs. Of course, this has been a long-pitched-never-materialized plan in many countries to replace various illicit crops with legal […]

It has been 50 years since Che Guevara was murdered by the CIA and their accomplices in Bolivia. Among the wretched allies of the west was Klaus Barbie, the famous Nazi responsible for anti-partisan operations during WWII and for the mass murder of Jews and Communists in France, of course history makes no mention of […]

One of the problematic aspects of 20th century “actually-existing socialism” was its record on environmental degradation and species destruction.[1] Without going into a laundry list of history, it is safe to assume this problem (though hardly invalidating the last century of revolutionary struggles) should be studied and understood in hopes of surmounting it in the […]

Against “Democratic Socialism” In a somewhat recent article in New Republic entitled “The Socialism America Needs Now,” there is a renewed discussion being launched over the future of “socialism” in the united $tates, and how one should continue to pursue socialist revolution from within the framework offered by the liberal establishment. Naturally, this article rejects Marxist-Leninist […]

Liberal pundits, in an attempt to discredit Trump’s plan to seal off the country to new waves of Third World immigration, like to think they’re clever when posing the question of what amerika would do without immigrants. Of course, this question is put almost as if they truly believe it is a humanitarian and empathetic […]

By Qamar B. and Amber 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 […]

Alongside other big executive orders issued on Monday, Trump has reinstated the “Mexico City Policy” which prevents NGOs that receive federal funding from performing or educating women about abortion services. The policy, first enacted by Reagan in 1984, has been a back-and-forth issue throughout the administrations since its first passage. Republican presidents have all upheld […]

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 […]

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 […]

In this article, I would like to delineate some problems with the current form of Third Worldist discourse and propose an alternative conceptualization meant to put Third Worldism back on its original track – that of revolutionary anti-imperialist politics. Doing so requires a self-criticism on the part of Third Worldists, who have generally understood (or […]

Recently I have come across a conceptual distinction between two methods of carrying out the mass line. The two formulations are: unite the advanced, win over the intermediate, isolate the backwards unite the advanced, bring up the intermediate, win over the backwards I feel this distinction is significant and has to be addressed, with the […]

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 […]
