Because this is a common question for newcomers, I thought it made sense to write down a short list of materials that might help new and young comrades in forming their ideas.

The Erfurt foundation:
- The Erfurt Program.

We need the bitter truth

This is my reply to the new BOC thread about the attacks
on the movement by the ISO --Ben

Hi Blue Bossa Nova,

I know that you and the other BOC comrades have worked your hearts
out to create a stronger analysis of why the ISO has attacked both
your group and the entire militant section of the Occupy movement.

Having said that, I need to tell you, frankly,...

Guess I'm back...

At least, that's what it looks like. I'm posting here again (and have been for a few weeks), but it seems like I'll be doing so a little more regularly now.

Still upset over what happened in November/December, but so long as this site is up I'll remain here (provided the admins don't shut it down again).

Eminent Domain

Posted 19th March 2012 at 13:58 by Bolshevik_Guerilla_1917

Eminent Domain, what is it ? It is a policy under Article 1 Section 8 of the constitution in which it is backed by the 5th Amendment. The policy in a nutshell is that the government can buy land from owners, or under certain circumstances take the land, but for it to only be used for the public, for example, build roads, schools, hospitals, and other publicly used facilities. Now with this being said, it is not supposed to be used for economic development.
The government has become so greedy...

False Democracy

Posted 19th March 2012 at 13:42 by Bolshevik_Guerilla_1917

America is seen as a Democracy, but honestly it couldnt be. Yes we have the right to vote, but thats only for representatives that are supposed to represent the people. The legislative branch of this government is way to complicated, they come up with all of these bills and laws they want to pass, but we have to see if a committe approves. Now since this government is a so called "Democracy", shouldnt they see if the people approve instead of these small government committees ?? Obviously...
