Absurdism and Socialism, or Absurdism Versus Socialism
We seek to understand the Marxian historical materialist conditions which provided the substructure for Kim's luscious booty superstructure.
We are open to all Marxists who seek to understand the declining rate of waist lines and their ratio to booty inflation.Last Activity: 15th December 2015 20:52

For RevLeft members who believe that certain forms of nationalism are compatible revolutionary ideas or simply interested in leftist nationalism.
Left-wing nationalism promotes egalitarianism, anti-racism, and self-determination whose national identity in the end is shaped around an ideological identity rather than a racial identity.
This group is also critical towards many self-proclaimed anti-nationalists for falling into the same trap as many "colorblind" liberals whose refusal to talk about identity is not only alienating, but also chauvinistic.
Historical examples of left-wing nationalists include Tito, Sun Yat Sen, Mao Zedong, African National Congress, and the Irish Republicans.Last Activity: 27th August 2016 21:04

Bolsheviki rising (Kautsky's response to October)
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.Last Activity: 16th April 2017 22:40

The magazine is written in a simple, direct style and focuses mainly on socialist advocacy and Marxian analysis of current events, particularly those affecting the United Kingdom.

Save the Socialist Standard
By its nature, Zionism concentrates ultra-nationalism, chauvinism and racial intolerance, excuse for territorial occupation and annexation, military opportunism, cult of political promiscuousness and irresponsibility, demagogy and ideological diversion, dirty tactics and perfidy... Absurd are attempts of Zionist ideologists to present criticizing them, or condemning the aggressive politics of the Israel's ruling circles, as antisemitic.Last Activity: 12th April 2017 06:48
This is a private group.
This group was created in order to raise awareness for left anti-semitism disguising itself as anti-zionist. We recognize the uniqueness of anti-semitism and the holocaust and thus support the existence of a state Israel untill communism.
We recognize the anti-semitic tendencies within the palestinian liberation movement and the left and wish to critique them.
We recognize the bourgeois and inherently reactionary character of the state Israel with all its consequences such as racism, bigotry and chauvinism.
We do NOT characterize Israel as a "fascist apartheid settler colonial state".Category: InterestsLast Activity: 12th April 2017 06:32

For those who understand German
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.
