Slavoj Žižek: A “Radical” Apologist for Imperialism

The following article by Karlo Mikhail and originally published in the Platypus Journal challenges common notions that Slavoj Žižek presents a particularly radical critique of capitalist-imperialism. While we are reposting this for the purpose of discussion and critical review, doing so in no manner implies endorsement or affiliation. The Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek has a reputation for lashing out […]

Book Review: “Steel Drivin’ Man: John Henry”

Bourgeois history is typified by its appreciation of particulars.   In turn it rejects larger narratives regarding fundamental social relations.  The effect of this is obscuring unflattering trends in the history of the capitalist world-system and particular dominant countries therein. Though highly accessible, Scott Reynolds Nelson’s Steel Drivin’ Man: John Henry: The Untold Story of an American Legend adds […]

J. Sakai Audio Interview with KPFT Pacifica Radio

We have long promoted and distributed certain works of J. Sakai as essential reading for revolutionary anti-imperialists, especially Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat.   Its uncompromising look at Amerikan history as one of oppression of captive nations is a sharp contrast to the left patriotism of Howard Zinn, as a previous review by […]

Wallerstein’s recent text, World-Systems Analysis: An Introduction, will be part of […]

On the Theory of the Productive Forces

In this short video, Shubel Morgan explains why Amerikans are so wealthy compared to those in the Third World. It is not because of so-called ‘advanced technology.’ Amerika is wealthy because it exploits the world’s people.

The following is a polemic by Sanyika Shakur of the New Afrikan Independence Movement against the positions held by the Kevin Rashid Johnson and the New Afrikan Black Panther Party.

Karl Marx: News of the Coming Revolt August 12

What is Marxism?

Accusations against Barack Obama by the political right in the US, recent media coverage of protest movements like Occupy Wall Street, and increased exposure for pop-philosophers like Slavoj Zizek have all brought the topic of Marxism back in the spotlight of popular attention in the west. In the process, little explanation has been given as to what Marxism is.

This essay will trace the philosophical foundations of Marxism and outline the most significant and relevant features of its historical development. My hope is to shed an incisive light on the topic of Marxism, specifically in a way that gets passed its employment as a buzzword or slogan by either the political right or ‘left.’ Marxism, as we shall see, is a rich philosophical “guide to action” grounded in the long-standing struggle against capitalist-imperialism and for proletarian revolution.
