Israel has resumed bombarding the Gaza Strip following the discovery of three dead Israelis kidnapped two weeks ago. The IDF claims the 34 sites bombed by the Israeli Air Force were strategic points for HAMAS and other Palestinian defenders. Despite a lack of hard evidence regarding the abduction of the three Israelis, HAMAS has been […]

Recently I have come across a conceptual distinction between two methods of carrying out the mass line. The two formulations are: unite the advanced, win over the intermediate, isolate the backwards unite the advanced, bring up the intermediate, win over the backwards I feel this distinction is significant and has to be addressed, with the […]

Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 Introduction The purpose of this multi-part series is to debunk the thesis put forward in F.A. Hayek’s seminal work The Road to Serfdom; wherein, he suggests that Western Civilization had been moving towards socialism and that this was ultimately a road to destruction and servitude. Much of what […]

"The Marxist doctrine is omnipotent because it is true. It is comprehensive and harmonious, and provides men with an integral world outlook irreconcilable with any form of superstition, reaction, or defense of bourgeois oppression. " - Vladimir Lenin

It’s far too easy to be caught up in the theoretical squabbles between leftist groups on the internet. Everyday we take the same tired path often filled with self-important rhetoric and the sermons of the endless radical preachers often encountered. But what is the purpose? Hopefully to bring attention to our ’cause’ and the work […]

Introduction Here I propose a framework for a non-liberal, non-radical, and non-transmisogynistic feminism: a proletarian feminism. This work builds upon a materialist analysis of sex as a social construct (more available here), which is essential reading before you continue. For those unaware of dialectics some parts of this essay may be hard to follow, so […]

Recently, Kasama Project (a post-Maoist organization) released a criticism[1] of what they termed “parasitism theory” (a misnomer for the analysis given by ourselves at Anti-Imperialism.com and other Maoist organizations) and what we term the theory of imperialism. The article, authored by Mike Ely, attempts to challenge much of what has been said regarding the labor […]

Mike Ely and myself share many commonalities. We desire a better world, understand this can only happen through socialism, and have confidence that such a socialism can only emerge via class struggle and revolution. Between these areas of unity, we have many differences, largely stemming from different analyses of class structure in modern society. In […]

“When you try a defendant for robbery, Honorable Judges, do you ask him how long he has been unemployed? Do you investigate his social context at all? You just send him to jail without further thought. You imprison the poor wretch who steals because he is hungry; but none of the hundreds who steal millions […]

Review: The Worker Elite: Notes on the Labor Aristocracy The Worker Elite by Bromma, recently published by Kersplebledeb, is a must-read essay that offers a corrective lens to both normative First Worldism and ‘crude Third Worldism.’ While the book is lacking in a few areas, it offers a clear and concise argument which will likely […]

Introduction You work for it; you work with it. You need it to survive; you survive to need it. You’d steal for it; maybe, if the price was right you’d even kill for it. It commands armies, nations, and public policy; often times it means life or death (quite literally). It is both celebrated and […]

In two major articles already on anti-imperialism.com, we have defined in a preliminary way how we conceive of Global People’s War, and what we consider to be the basic role of revolutionaries in imperialist countries today. The theory of Global People’s War and what role First Worlders are to play in it of course needs […]

Who is Being Profane? It’s not often I use profanity to ‘make a point’. Some would suggest such profanity is even unacceptable in context of a serious discussion. But with respect, what is more profane: the use of expletives or the fact that Black persons are incarcerated at six times the rate of whites? Rephrasing Malcom […]

gods not dead

Introduction Recently I had the chance to see the independently produced “faith based” film God’s Not Dead. The movie, taking name from Nietzsche’s famous exclamation ‘God is dead’, has received quite mixed reviews with the overall consensus being fairly negative, at least on behalf of critics. Some of which is to be expected of an independent “faith […]
