By Nick Brown Against Abstract Explanations, Metaphysics, Arrogance, and Platitudes Most explanations of what it would take for revolution to occur in the US are horribly inadequate. Generally, they propose a static notion of the requirements for revolution: typically the creation of a revolutionary party or initiation of a people’s war. In the first instance, […]


By Zak Brown New York City Atlanta, Georgia Ferguson, Missouri Letting Darren Wilson go free was a declaration of war. War against every person of color in the United States. War against every victim of police violence. War against all poor and working people whose communities have become ghettos of state repression and murder without consequence. […]


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 […]

By Zak Brown Introduction Unlike the stiff and boring Marxism which exist primarily on campus and the internet, feminism is actually becoming cool again. Now, feminism itself invokes all sorts of imagery from every conceivable position on the Left and all manner of terrible outcry from the Right. However, when I say Feminism I am […]

Maoist guerrillas in India

By Marx Peterson There are two theories of how world revolution will emerge in the 21st century: the theory that the Western proletariat will have to seize control of Western nations in order to spread socialism to the Global South (also known as the Third World), and the theory that the Global South will first […]


By Zak Brown Introduction First, congratulations to JMP (internet moniker of Joshua Moufawad-Paul) for the release of his book, The Communist Necessity, which has received widespread praise from readers. Hopefully the book does well to popularize a communist politic within activist circles. As with all dialogue and engagements we hope to promote civil discussion and […]


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 […]


By Marx Peterson On September 11, 2001, the world changed. When the twin towers came crumbling down on live TV in front of millions of people, the American psyche was shaken to its core. 3000 people died on that day in what is undoubtedly the worst act of terrorism to ever occur on US soil. […]


One of many reasons dialectical materialism is deemed incomprehensible is because it formulates concepts based on relationality. Due to that unique philosophical nature, the interpretation of the concepts which disregards their relationality has been contributing to the ambiguity of dialectical materialism. However, ambiguity is the least harm such misinterpretation causes. The interpretation disregarding the relationality […]


I can remember the morning quite vividly. Walking into our kitchen after school, I saw my mother crying with her face against the table and the television on. I asked my mother why she was crying and she responded, “Terrorists attacked us!” This puzzled me because I could not understand why tourists would attack anyone. […]


Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Chapter 6: Planning and the Rule of Law As the title would suggest, Hayek begins chapter six by promoting what he refers to as the ‘Rule of Law’. While many legal and political interpretations exist of the ‘Rule of Law’, Hayek importantly draws distinction between his version of […]


This work, written by the Russian neo-Marxist Alexander Tarasov, originally from (, explains some problems with the Soviet strategy in relation to world revolution (albeit coming from a negative appraisal of the USSR), clarifying the distinction between First and Third World characterized by exploiting nations and exploiter nations, the dependence of the First World […]


Karl Marx’s research method in Capital has been equivocated by not only his predecessors, but also by Marx himself. The equivocation primarily arises from the absence of Marx’s own writing of the research method he employed in Capital. Marx did not expatiate upon his research method because Capital was written for the newly born industrial […]


Famous Singer executed by firing squad! … only to show up alive, grinning, and well on national television! Awwkwaaard!1 Either the DPRK has discovered the long-lost art of necromancy (and the United States is in for a bone-shattering surprise when an undead Korean People’s Army comes rattling onto its shores), it has created an exceedingly […]


[credit: Al Jazeera] [credit: Vice]   Ferguson is on fire The little town just 20 miles north of St. Louis made national headlines a few days ago when protests turned to riots over the death of unarmed 18 year-old Black resident Michael Brown. Riots since then have only intensified and clashes with the police becoming […]


Saturday, August 9th, 18-year old Michael Brown was shot dead by police after what they called a “struggle over the officer’s weapon”. Witnesses claim Brown was no threat to anyone and was simply walking in the road when officers told him to “get the fuck on the sidewalk”. Despite this he was shot 8 times […]

Tensions Remain High At Israeli Gaza Border

A recent poll conducted by Mina Tzemach has some troubling revelations for everyone concerned with the recent Israeli offensive in Gaza (Operation Protective Edge). The poll, designed to guage public opinion of the ‘conflict’, found that 86.5% of Israelis opposed a ceasefire considering “Hamas has not surrendered” and “not all the tunnels have been found”. […]


The death toll in the Gaza Strip has now reached 1,170 many of which were not even “combatants” (the supposed targets of the operation which began on July 7th) but rather innocent Palestinians simply murdered in their own homes. Israel has reported 56 of its own dead including 53 soldiers and 3 civilians. Operation Protective […]


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 […]

“It is very clear what it [Operation Protective Edge] is: a war driven by the hankering yet callous lust of the imperialist capital of a colonial state to expand its appropriation of Palestinian natural resources and profit at the severe expense of the Palestinian people.”
