Hegemony and Class Revolution:On the Use and Misuse Of Gramsci
This is a group for all people who want a stateless, classless society, and lots of marijuana to smoke. Revolution will be brought about by the spread of pot.

This group was created and intended for the study of strategy and the application of war.
There is absolutely no doubt that the majority of members on this forum, or perhaps even the majority of people on this planet, are in direct opposition to the politics of military strategists such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Carl von Clausewitz and Sun Tzu. However, it is widely agreed upon by strategists and academics alike, that the strategic theories outlined by the people above, are remarkable in terms of correctly applying strategy to the subject and field of war. Therefore, for the purpose of objectiveness, truth, and effectiveness, strategic theories outlined by credited strategists, regardless of politics, shall be accepted as worthy unto this group.
Unfortunately, strategy is not something synonymous only with Leftism, and such is perhaps the reason why one is living in a Capitalist society at this moment. One may argue that strategy is an academic field which has not been studied or prioritized enough in terms of helping to advance the cause of Socialism. However, hopefully, what I am sure we can collectively agree upon, is that strategy is certainly an academic field which can help at least in a minimal way in terms of advancing the cause of the liberation of the working class, if not taking such a cause to a much superior stage.
One would like this Strategic Studies group to be active in discussion and analysis on the subject of war and strategy. Promotion of criticism is requested, nonetheless accepted. Albeit, with that, please accept constructive criticism in response.
The intention of this group is to broaden ones understanding and knowledge of Strategy, as a means to help those who suffer overwhelmingly; The Working Class.
Once more, I welcome feedback, particularly in reference to improving this group. But please, do so through the use of private messaging.
As somebody who is in the process of creating a Strategic Studies society at ones university, and somebody who will be studying Strategy at a different university next year, I invite all who are interested, regardless of politics, to help with my forthcoming challenges, whether it be physically or simply through vocal advice.
Whether one may be a Marxist-Leninist, a Trotskyist, an Anarchist, or from the left in opposition to the previous; this group was not created nor intended for theoretical or political discussion, and therefore those pursuing such discussion will be subject to being removed from this group.Last Activity: 22nd October 2016 16:27

Soviet revisionist works on Africa

For supporters of the IMT, who understand that when the workers move, it will not be through "revolutionary" parties of 2 men and their dog, but through their traditional mass organizations.
The same organizations that have been bureaucratized, hijacked, and turned against their members will be flooded by the awakened working class. Workers will flush the rats out of their unions and labour parties, and take them on the road of struggle against capitalism.
When that happens, we must be there to show a revolutionary way out.Category: Organisations/PartiesLast Activity: 27th March 2017 06:51

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.

My notes and quotes I've collected
The Mensheviks were a faction of the Russian socialist movement that emerged in 1904 after a dispute in the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party between Vladimir Lenin and Julius Martov, leading to the party splitting into two factions, one being the Mensheviks and the other being the Bolsheviks. The dispute originated at the Second Congress of that party, ostensibly over minor issues of party organization. Martov's supporters, who were in the minority in a crucial vote on the question of party membership, came to be called "Mensheviks"Category: Organisations/PartiesLast Activity: 24th March 2017 20:41

Karl Marx: man and fighter - Boris Nicolaievsky and Otto Maenchen-Helfen
A group for supporters of the line of Enver Hoxha.
"There is nothing unknown about what socialism is, what it represents and what it brings about, how it is achieved and how socialist society is built. A theory and practice of scientific socialism exists. Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin teach us this theory. We find the practice of it in that rich experience of the construction of socialism in the Soviet Union in the time of Lenin and Stalin, and we find it today in Albania, where the new society is being built according to the teachings of Marxism-Leninism.
Of course, as Lenin said, socialism will look different and will have its own special features in different countries as a result of the differing socio-economic conditions, the way in which the revolution is carried out, the traditions, the international circumstances, etc. But the basic principles and the universal laws of socialism remain unshakeable and are essential for all countries." - Enver Hoxha, Report to the 8th Congress of the Party of Labour of Albania, November 1, 1981.Last Activity: 23rd March 2017 05:17
