  • Socialist Youth Organisation!

    Socialist Youth Organisations advocates, join!



    For i see this being one of the most important aspects and social missions of socialism: letting the youth free themselves from the societal chains of the capitalist family.



    To build the Socialist Youth Organisations trans-nationally, internationally, have collective, practical, self-selected and learning programs for higher age levels (14-18+) that concentrate on [I]colliding[/I] thinking and manual work to enter the "professional" world without the pressure of having to "choose" a career and study path, but having practice and acquaintance with many different ones.



    Introduction to [I]Work[/I] and thereby self-expression within a truly socialist/communist economy of workers participation in the social role of production; should be an important part of youth process to adulthood.



    Sign up, Fellow Socialist Youth Advocates!

  • Folk Music Lovers

    This group is for people who enjoy folk music of any culture, be it Mexican Corridos, American musicians such as Pete Seeger or Phil Ochs, Irish bands such as Pogues or Dubliners, or anything else that's considered folk. So post whatever you'd like, a good idea would be to look on torrent sites or youtube for musicians you enjoy, and post it so we can all see and bask in its folky-ness.

  • Debunking leftists.

    As the tendency name suggests, this group is for interested leftists to come together, dispell and find quick refutations of common myths surrounding economics, discrimination, Communism itself and other subjects that commonly appear in the discourse of modern politics.



    If you get pissed off whenever you hear a comparison between Marx, Lenin Pol-Pot and Hitler, If you tremble uncontrollably at the words 'a way between extreme Marxism and Capitalism' or 'Good on paper but bad in practice', If you hate having to put up the constant conservative vomits who continuously explain to you how deregulation would increase competition and therefore worker's luxury of living, then this is the group for you!

  • Impossibilists

    Impossibilism is a theory and strategy for bringing about socialism and an interpretation of Marxism that stresses the limited value of political, economic and social reforms within a capitalist economy. It argues that pursuing such reforms is counterproductive as they only strengthen support for the existing system and thereby work to ensure the continuation of the capitalist system, or at the least, impossibilism argues that such reforms are irrelevant to the realization of socialism and should not be a major concern for socialists.

  • World Socialist Movement

    The World Socialist Movement (WSM) is an international organisation of socialist parties created in 1904 with the founding of the Socialist Party of Great Britain. The member parties share a common classical Marxist worldview and an adherence to socialism defined as a distinct economic system from capitalism. Therefore, the World Socialist parties are held in sharp contrast to Social democratic political parties and Leninist/Marxist-Leninist movements.

  • Paganism

    Paganism is very broad and has no set definition. I theorise there being 2 spectrums of paganism.
    1. Tendency (e.i Celtic, Wiccan, Norse, Druid, Christo', Islamo')
    2. Belief (Cultural, literal, Metaphorical, spiritual, pantheist)

    Example:
    Cultural Norse, Spiritual Druid etc.

    Note that paganism is not inherently the belief in many gods, most neo-pagans are not literal pagans.

    Btw I am a materialist-atheist. I only follow the year-wheel of the pagans not the religion.

  • Libertarian Socialism

    From WikiPedia:

    Libertarian socialism (sometimes called social anarchism or left-libertarianism) is a group of political philosophies that promote a non-hierarchical, non-bureaucratic society without private property in the means of production. Libertarian socialists believe in converting present-day private productive property into common or public goods, while retaining respect for personal property. Libertarian socialism is opposed to coercive forms of social organization. It promotes free association in place of government and opposes the social relations of capitalism, such as wage labor. The term libertarian socialism is used by some socialists to differentiate their philosophy from state socialism, and by some as a synonym for anarchism.

    Adherents of libertarian socialism assert that a society based on freedom and equality can be achieved through abolishing authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite. Libertarian socialism also constitutes a tendency of thought that promotes the identification, criticism, and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of life.

    Accordingly, libertarian socialists believe that "the exercise of power in any institutionalized form—whether economic, political, religious, or sexual—brutalizes both the wielder of power and the one over whom it is exercised". Libertarian socialists generally place their hopes in decentralized means of direct democracy such as libertarian municipalism, citizens' assemblies, trade unions, and workers' councils.

    Political philosophies commonly described as libertarian socialist include most varieties of anarchism (especially anarchist communism, anarchist collectivism, anarcho-syndicalism, and mutualism) as well as autonomism, Communalism, participism, libertarian Marxist philosophies such as council communism and Luxemburgism, and some versions of "utopian socialism" and individualist anarchism.

  • Marxist-Leninists

    Marxism-Leninism is the theory and practice of the Communists, who uphold the works of Marx, Engels and Lenin in the struggle for proletarian revolution, the construction of socialism, and the triumph of communism on a world scale. It is the scientific ideology of the working-class and its vanguard which accomplish these aims.

    Marxism-Leninism bases itself on historical and dialectical materialism, taking into account the objective material conditions existent in each country and region. It supports just struggles against imperialism and neo-colonialism whose victories are guaranteed through the leading role of the working-class in said struggles. It supports internationalism as the guiding basis of the foreign policy of the socialist state and in the approach to inter-imperialist conflicts. Marxist-Leninists fight for both democratic and socialist demands and, where necessary in the world, carry out any bourgeois-democratic tasks in tandem with the uninterrupted move over into the socialist revolution.

    The struggles waged by Marx, Engels and Lenin against all forms of revisionism, opportunism and reformism constituted both the defense of scientific socialism and its creative development, opposing both "left" and right-wing deviations.

    The construction of socialism in the Soviet Union and likeminded countries provided a superior alternative to the capitalist system. The treacherous policies pursued by the restorers of capitalism constituted a heavy setback for the world working-class movement, but they could not reverse the nature of capitalism and the inevitability of class struggles for socialism under it.

    Marxism-Leninism remains the ideology of the working-class by virtue of its scientific content and objective merits in the epoch of imperialism and the decay of capitalism.

  • dont forget Engels !

    Anyone else love this guy ?? He's so often just lumped with Marx or forgotten altogether, but he's actually really awesome in his own right. His writings are some of the best in the history of humanity, and without him the world would certainly be a very different place.
