In the First World especially, the vision of housing in the future has increasingly tended toward the small, “minimalist” and often recycled homes that we see advertised in science and innovation magazines. So-called pod homes, shipping container houses, modular flats and even recycled water pipes have become not only a vision of life in the […]

It has been almost two years since the success of the british nationalists in the Brexit vote. Where have they gone? Nationalism, although still a simmering threat throughout the First World, seems to have been defeated, at least temporarily, in britain, not by organized anti-fascism and a strong working class movement, but by their own […]

I would like to start on a somewhat unrelated note: I fucking hate Tom Hanks. It’s not just that he cultivates a saccharin liberal image, or that he’s known predominantly for playing crusty old men in highly acclaimed amerikan period-pieces that amount to little more than the old CNN opera (stay tuned for his inevitable […]

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 […]

Happy Xmas, but the war is not over. Far from it, so that is one track that walmart can knock off its christmas playlist, that is, assuming they have not forgotten a war is going on. It is unfortunately easy to forget, after all, as the Afghanistan war becomes one of the least reported on […]

The Trump regime has unveiled its new strategy for National Security in the era of “amerika first” policy-making. The regime’s hope is to stabilize the evaporating amerikan dominance by reorienting amerikan security policy from one predicated on diplomacy to one built on overwhelming force—hardly a novel concept in amerikan foreign policy. The new plan rests […]

In a surprising move, the Pakistani Air Force has ordered their pilots to shoot down any drones which enter their airspace, including those of the united $tates. This is a remarkable change in foreign policy from the past years, wherein Pakistan was a valuable ally to the u.$. efforts in the “war on terror” waged […]

Of the many contentious debates currently burning among the communist left is that concerning freedom of speech and the extent to that we should—or shouldn’t—recognize it. It is a complicated question that deserves deep investigation. As with all of the “rights” we rent from bourgeois society, they are never as they appear and the realities […]

[Circulated 12/06/17 by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), the Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement wholeheartedly endorses the position of the PYM on the imperialist selection of Al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist entity.] We, the Palestinian Youth Movement, condemn the recent iterations of the US Settler government advancing the Zionist entity’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine. We […]

The heroic struggle of the Yemeni people continues on, intensifying with every passing day. They are besieged from all sides, yet have achieved spectacular victories in their struggle for independence against the imperialist coalition and the traitor “president” Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who continues to depend on the backing of the world’s chief parasites for everything […]

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 […]

It is “Black Friday” in amerika, and while consumers enjoy 50% and 60% off new laptops and cell phones, the empire’s army is to thank. Afghanistan sits on an estimated $3 trillion reserve of untapped mineral resources, including vast amounts of lithium—estimated to be one of the largest reserves of lithium in the world. Lithium […]

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 […]

Marking the 99th anniversary of the armistice that ended WWI, we are faced with a historic impasse as communists and anti-imperialists in the core countries. A grand inter-imperialist war that ultimately tested the resolve of so-called “progressives” that could not bring themselves to oppose what they saw as an opportunity for national glory. It was […]

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 […]

The RCP mass organization “Refuse Fascism” has hyped a series of planned nationwide protests planned for the 4th to create popular momentum for ousting the Trump administration. If their claims are to be believed there will be demonstrations in more than a dozen cities including Chicago, Boston, Austin and Los Angeles. The organization itself has […]

Former FBI Director and resident Russkie hunter, Robert Mueller, has dropped former Trump campaign manager Manafort through the little door and, although his neck has yet to pop, it is clear that many very important players see prefigured in this massacre their own undoing. Now, whether it is the laughable accusation of collusion, or the […]

It is halloween, and nothing is more terrifying to an amerikan than Third World resistance. All evidence points to a strengthened Afghan resistance, defense secretary Mattis himself has said “I think the Taliban had a good year last year […] Right now, I believe the enemy is surging.” With new tactics and morale, both the […]
