[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 […]

Recent activity on the left especially online has lead to several questions which need to be answered before we can proceed with any form of constructive theory. Among these questions include those which interrogate the very meaning behind our collective action as leftists and what we are really “after” so to speak. The most principal […]

First and foremost let’s begin by recognizing the historical importance of anarchism as a broad political philosophy. While anarchism is fundamentally flawed in many ways most anarchists can be seen as allies in the struggle against monopoly capital. The contradiction between anarchists and communist forces on the ground can be characterized as non-antagonistic, a contradiction […]

In all honesty, watching the imperialist ‘yes men’ over at Forbes scream and cry about the legitimacy of a socialist candidate was more than amusing; however, this is not the reason why the electoral victory of Socialist Alternative candidate Kshama Sawant made its way onto Anti-imperialism.com Rather Sawant’s victory has reopened the tentative discussion on […]

By Kirkpatrick Sale Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, was the preeminent radical student-based organization among the white sector of the US Left in the 1960s. It lasted from 1960 to 1969, when it collapsed from factional fighting that led to the birth of the Weather Underground and various groups that made up the […]

Being that today is Malcolm X’s birthday, I thought it was incumbent upon me to share these reflections. First and foremost, I think it’s necessary that I explain why I, as a “white man,” a euro-amerikan, feel such a profound reverence for Malcolm, someone who said to be a “black militant” and accused of being […]

There is a widespread distrust, if not outright hostility, towards the federal government in the United States today. It can be seen in the increasing popularity of the Tea Party Movement, the rapid growth of armed patriot militias, and heard in the daily political discourse of ordinary Americans. It should come as no surprise that […]

A high court in Pakistan has ruled that drone strikes carried out in the country by the United States are illegal and has ordered the Pakistani government to put forward a UN resolution against the attacks. The court ruled the government of Pakistan “must ensure that no drone strike takes place in the future.” “If […]

Political analyses aside, these videos serve as examples of creativity and professionalism applied to agitation. While substance is important, so is form. Anti-imperialists should strive to convey revolutionary politics in forms which effectively capture attention. h/t to Sukant Chandan of Sons of Malcolm for first posting this live set by British hip hop artist Akala: This […]

By Prince Kapone, originally published by MIM-Prisons. According to Article IV of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (N.P.T.), all signatory member nations possess the “inalienable right” to “develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination.”(1) As a signatory nation, the Islamic Republic of Iran is entitled to this most basic right, […]

The U.S. has recently set up a permanent drone base in the west African country of Niger, as well as deployed at least 100 troops to this country for logistical support.

The news of the recent passing of Hugo Chavez has swept through nominally leftist circles over the past week. Due to his leading stature in contemporary anti-hegemonic struggles, many organizations and websites (including Anti-Imperialism.com) posted commemorations. Now that the news has settled, Chavez’s death affords and demands a discussion on various aspects of the revolutionary […]

Generally speaking, the USSR during the authors lifetime was not socialist. This is because it was no longer part of the movement for proletarian revolution.

The reformed Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) recently held its seventh general convention. It was the first such event since it formally split from the revisionist Unified Communist Party of Nepal last summer. During and immediately after the convention, the CPN-Maoist vowed to carry forth a strategy of ‘people’s revolt.’ They also took the opportunity […]

Over the course of my work, I have inferred that the general rate of exploitation has increased along with the development and maturation of capitalist-imperialism, thus forestalling the tendency of the rate of profit to fall while allowing a minority First World section of the working class to have a ‘cut’ in imperialist superprofits and […]

Sixty-nine percent of Israeli Jews questioned said they would object to giving voting rights to Palestinians if the West Bank is annexed. Seventy-four percent of respondents favor separate roads for Israelis and […]

This article was originally published at 4th Media.  While the United States is busy plotting the downfall of various anti-hegemonic regimes in the global south, it has also been pursuing another strategy to stave off crisis and possible loss of global supremacy: fusion technology, the ‘holy grail’ of energy. Unlike fission, in which heavy atoms […]
