Bogdanov was a key figure in the early history of the Bolshevik faction of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, being one of its cofounders and a rival to Vladimir Lenin until being expelled in 1909. In the first decade of the Soviet Union, he was an influential opponent of the government from a Marxist perspective. The polymath Bogdanov received training in medicine and psychiatry. His scientific interests ranged from the universal systems theory. He invented an original philosophy called “tectology,” now regarded as a forerunner of systems theory. He was also an economist, culture theorist, science fiction writer, and political activist.

"Value criticism (in German Wertkritik) is a branch of postmarxism which is criticizing the capitalistic society. They are following traditions of the Frankfurt School and the critical theory developed under Max Horkheimer. Representatives are Robert Kurz, Roswitha Scholz and Moishe Postone. Value criticism is taking crucial aspects of Marx critiques of commodity fetishism, commodities and value, while they criticize Marx theory of class struggle and historical materialism. As result the worker class can not necessarily be identified as revolutionary subject. Instead it is pointed out, that labor has to be understood as a historic specific entity and that criticizing capitalism implies not only to criticize the distribution process in capitalism, but also the capitalistic production process and the productive powers. Thus it can be concluded, that real socialism was finally nothing more but state capitalism, where production was still following capitalistic principals. The...

Marxism-Leninism is the theory and practice of the Communists, who uphold the works of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin 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 existant 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...

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics. At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. As we are unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people. For example, we support reforms that: decrease the influence of money in politics empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.

Autonomism or Autonomous Marxism is a set of left-wing political and social movements and theories identified with the socialist movement. As a theoretical system, it first emerged in Italy in the 1960s from workerist (operaismo) communism. Later, post-Marxist and anarchist tendencies became significant after influence from the Situationists, the failure of Italian far-left movements in the 1970s, and the emergence of a number of important theorists including Antonio Negri, who had contributed to the 1969 founding of Potere Operaio, as well as Mario Tronti, Paolo Virno, Franco Berardi "Bifo", etc.

Proletarian internationalism, sometimes referred to as international socialism, is a Marxist social class concept based on the view that capitalism is now a global system, and therefore the working class must act as a global class if it is to defeat it. Workers should struggle in solidarity with their fellow workers in other countries on the basis of a common class interest. Proletarian internationalism is closely linked to Marxist goals of world revolution, to be achieved through successive or simultaneous communist revolutions in all nations. Marxist theory is that world revolution would lead to world communism, and later still, stateless communism. Marxists regard proletarian internationalism as the antonym of bourgeois nationalism but the term has been subjected to different interpretations by various currents of Marxist thought.

Named in honour of Marcus Aemilius Lepidus, the true people's hero of the Roman civil wars, First-World Lepidan Communism upholds the work of noted SPD theoreticians Noske and Ebert, and projects a break-in military coup (that is, a break-in executed as a military coup) leading to a "March from Rome" (since we expect we will have to run from the police afterwards). We note the need for a completely un-charismatic leader, which has something to do with the comprador bourgeoisie. Somehow. We demand that journalists sit down whenever our un-charismatic chairman or bureaucratic secretary-general enters the room, critically support the Luxemburgish Rietspartei (which is a bit odd since that hasn't existed in quite a while) and support the creation of an alternate workers' culture primarily focused on party-affiliated drug dens and self-managed prison camp cooperatives.

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.
