A critique of Albert Meltzer: Exposé of the vanguard party

In 4 paragraphs and 376 words from the book “Anarchism – Arguments For & Against”, the anarcho-communist theoritician Albert Meltzer, following a long tradition of anarchist shallowness of critique, tried to take down the Marxist concept of the vanguard.

On Patient Solidarity: Toward a New Patient’s Front

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 […]

Behind Enemy Lines: Strategic Theory for Revolutionary Work in the Imperialist Core

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 […]

Social investigation: dialectics and the science of revolution

Intrinsic to the revolutionary experience of Communism has been the tool of social investigation and its broad application throughout the tenure of socialists. In Lenin’s 1902 pamphlet What is to be Done? we see some of the first concrete evidence of social investigation performed as Lenin details his analysis of the Russian political climate and what […]

We are the 99%… or are we?

With the advent of the 2008 economic crisis, various movements developed in response to faltering capitalism-imperialism. In the context of Europe and the Americas, the discontent came to prominence as a material force with the name of Occupy Movement. This force quickly came to prominence, reached everyone’s lips, and evaporated with the same speed. The […]

Toward a Concrete Class Analysis of the United States

As Samir Amin aptly notes in his critique of Hardt and Negri’s Empire, in periods of unrest and confusion following the defeat of revolutionary movements, there is a tendency for theories to emerge which lend legitimacy to that unrest and confusion, and which actually portray the resulting opportunism as a viable form of struggle [1]. Amin […]

On Global People’s War and Global New Democratic Revolution

On Global People’s War and Global New Democratic Revolution Under capitalist-imperialism, in which the exploitation of the proletariat by monopoly capital is mediated by the oppression of nations, the path to socialism and communism is through global people’s war and global new democratic revolution.

Denver: Communism Study Group

COMMUNISM. It is often thrown around rhetorically, barely touched upon in the mainstream, and disabused by much of the nominal left. Its history is one of the most misunderstood, and its theoretical and practical leaders the most mis-characterized and demonized. In an era when social convention is unraveling at the seams, when conflict is re-emerging […]

Some Points on Syria, Inter-Imperialist Rivalry, and Communist Work

1) Regardless of how the situation developed, the current civil war amounts to a proxy-conflict between decrepit US-led imperialism (represented through the US and its Arabian allies) and a developing bloc of ‘Eastern’ monopoly capital (publicly represented primarily by Russia). 2) Whether Assad or the ‘rebels’ win, a certain debt will be owed and Syria […]

Personal observations on the nature and function of the vanguard party

“World history would indeed be very easy to make, if the struggle were taken up only on condition of infallibly favorable chances. It would, on the other hand, be of a very mystical nature, if “accidents” played no part. These accidents themselves fall naturally into the general course of development and are compensated again by […]

Review: Good to Great, Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t

Jim Collins’ Good to Great (2001) is a popular book within the business world that outlines research into what separates ‘great’ from ‘good’ companies. Differing from other popular bourgeois titles by its comparative qualitative approach, Good to Great is a great distance from crypto-oppressive titles by authors like Napoleon Hill, Anthony Roberts, and Rhonda Byrne.

What is class hegemony?

Black Panther liberation school, a main instrument of counter-hegemony in African-American communities. Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement. This idea cannot be insisted upon too strongly at a time when the fashionable preaching of opportunism goes hand in hand with an infatuation for the narrowest forms of practical activity. – Vladimir Lenin, […]
