For all those who's passion finds an outlet in music with themes about love and romance. Countless genres around the world from oldies and 70's ballads in the west to C-ambient and soothing J-pop ballads in the east. Romantic tones find themselves being a universal language. We don't care if this music makes us seem soft or weak, the mood it puts us in is powerful.

Orthodox Trotskyism, so called by both adherents and detractors, is a political current within the broader Trotskyist movement that bases itself on the work of Leon Trotsky and his associates, such as James P. Cannon, who advanced Marxist theory in the direction indicated by Trotsky's work, in opposition to the revisionist theories of Pablo, Shachtman, Cliff and others. Orthodox Trotskyists emphasise the analysis, first outlined by Trotsky, of the Soviet Union as a degenerated workers' state, of the Stalinist bureaucracy as a contradictory stratum, and of the present epoch of the class struggle as being characterised by a deep crisis of leadership that can only be resolved by forging, on a firm basis, a Fourth International of revolutionary Bolsheviks-Leninists. This group is for adherents to the orthodox Trotskyist line, and every comrade who is interested in orthodox Trotskyist theory.

Organisations/Parties
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.

A group for anybody who worships, or is interested in, la Santa Muerte. Especially in studying her as an expression of cultural outcry from marginalized and oppressed people. Examining her origins and contemporary existence by those who live against and under the system, and her compatibility with anti-systematic movements. All in contrast to her media depiction as an 'evil' 'narco-saint' who's worshipers torture and kill. Select excerpts from Wiki: "Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte or, colloquially, Santa Muerte (Spanish for Saint Death), is a female folk saint venerated primarily in Mexico and the Southwestern United States. A personification of death, she is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees. Despite opposition by the Catholic Church, her cult arose from popular Mexican folk belief, a syncretism between indigenous Mesoamerican and Spanish Catholic beliefs and practices... Santa Muerte remained clandestine until the middle...

We think revolutionary expertise, which bases itself in organizational certainty and theoretical rigidity, measures only pro-revolutionary fabrication, it has but one relation to actual social conditions, which is that it is wholly unable to escape its determinations. Predictions for the future are hypothesized out of past happenings mistake the very nature of revolution, which we all agree is an event that is precisely not conditioned by the past and is characterized as a complete transformation of humans existence out of the economic mode. If we cannot recognize the future in the present then we cannot decide which pro-revolutionary activity or value of the present should be promoted or carried through to the future. It is our contention that most pro-revolutionary activity extends existing conditions and acts to prevent the future. We think many pro-revolutionary rather enjoy the antagonism of capitalist society and the part they place by supporting a 'side'. We cannot say for...

For those of us who take a critical attitude towards technological development. If you believe: that technology has caused very severe problems, and will not necessarily continue to solve these problems; or that technology is not "ideologically neutral", but intricately tied up with the structure of class society; or that life in primitive societies is often fairly reasonable, and is not, as Hobbes said and as has become a popular view, "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short"; or if you in any other way reject blind faith in technological progress - this is the group for you.

This is a group devoted to discussing religion and socialism. Possible topics for discussion include what constitutes ethical revolution, how to reach out to our religious communities, and ideas for combating religious and anti-religious intolerance in socialist and religious circles. Workers aren't just atheists, and many socialists of all tendencies are religious as well whether they are Christian anarchists all the way to Muslim socialists.

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.

For those who support or are interested in Democratic Confederalism, Social Ecology, Communalism, Libertarian Municipalism, Dialectical Naturalism and the Kurdish Liberation Struggle. "When the PKK was formed in the 1970s the international ideological and political climate was characterized by the bipolar world of the Cold War and the conflict between the socialist and the capitalist camps. The PKK was inspired at that time by the rise of decolonialization movements all over the world. In this context we tried to find our own way in agreement with the particular situation in our homeland. The PKK never regarded the Kurdish question as a mere problem of ethnicity or nationhood. Rather, we believed, it was the project of liberating the society and democratizing it. These aims increasingly determined our actions since the 1990s."-Abdullah Ocalan,"Democratic Confederalism" p.7 "Without the repression of the women the repression of the entire society is not conceivable. The sexism...
