  • Environmental Left

    Many people are aware of the worldwide problem of environmental pollution and destruction. This is making the Earth become increasingly unstable and uninhabitable. Left unchecked, global warming and general ecological destruction will have catastrophic impacts on human, animal, and plant life.



    For too many environmentalists however, green issues and politics are “neither left nor right” or “beyond politics”. But this is not true. Ecological destruction is not an accidental feature of the capitalist system. The insatiable need to increase profits cannot be reformed away as its system of production, for profit and not need, causes huge amounts of environmental destruction and needless waste.



    On the other side, the left cannot ignore environmental issues or afford not to put enough emphasis on them as (1) a classless society does not automatically equate to an environmentally friendly one, although it does have the basis to create one (unlike a capitalist society) and (2) by the time we reach the point of a revolution, the environment may be beyond repair. If the left does not back these issues enough, it will be incapable of creating a future society that is free and equal; such a society must be in harmony with the rest of nature.



    We must not only aim to bring the green movement to the left but also make sure that the left is green.

  • Non-Doctrinaire Communist

    This group is for communists who do not subscribe to a particular doctrine or "ism". If you are a "Marxist-Leninist," Trotskyist, Maoist, Stalinist, Hoxhaist, Luxemburgist, Bordigist, Bukharinist or one of a million other doctrinal "ists", this group is not for you. However, if you recognize that even a blind squirrel can find a theoretical nut, or have no qualms about slaughtering your own sacred cows, or really understand what Marx meant when he said, "If anything is certain, it is that I myself am not a Marxist", then you might just be a non-doctrinaire communist. Group members must be able to agree with the Non-Doctrinaire Communist Credo.

  • Anarcho-pacifism

    A group for those interested in Anarcho-pacifism. All who prefer nonviolent tactics as a PRIMARY approach to revolution are welcome. I'm not necessarily a pacifist, but there needs to be some kind of balance to all the blood thirsty romanticism of violent revolution here. (NOT a sunflower in the barrel, anti self-defense group) Syndicalism, Civil Disobedience, Nuclear disarmament, strike, propaganda, etc



    "“I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.” - Albert Einstein



    "Anarchism must be nonviolent since it is, by definition, opposition to coercion and force, and that since the state is inherently violent, meaningful pacifism must likewise be anarchistic."- Leo Tolstoy (paraphrased from Wiki)



    “We must become the change we want to see.” - Mahatma Gandhi



    "The more violence, the less revolution" - Bart de Ligt

  • Respectful Discussion Activists

    This is a group for the "extremists" of peaceable and considerate discussion. Members of this group hold no place among the radical left for dismissive, sectarian, and adversarial attitudes. Here we value intellectual honesty and safe learning environments as a fundamental part of creating a supportive community and opposing all forms of oppression.



    Group requirements:

    Members must...

    1) Strive at all times to maintain high standards in discussions, debates and arguments.

    2) Disapprove of insults and slander, as they reflect poorly on us all. When you loose your head, you loose your reason.

    3) Understand the difference between criticism and personal attacks. Attacking others puts them on the defensive, while proving others wrong on a factual reasoned basis, is productive.

    4) Are proponents of equal standards for everyone, no favoritism or sectarian values.

    5) Maintain critical thinking, and always challenge fallacies in thought and writing; whether they agree with a position politically or not.

    6) Stand up for our ethics, including the rights of others, popular or not.

    7) Apologize when they have treated others disrespectfully or failed them through their own fault.

    8) Do not hold personal vendettas. Let it go and live your lives.

    9) Encourage others to be kind and thoughtful in their interactions.



    As a group, we work to improve the conditions of communication and encourage empathy. We have worked hard to make RevLeft and many other environments better and more productive places and we will continue to do so.

  • Neo-Marxism

    Neo-Marxism isn't a dogmatic tendency, but a continuation of of contributing to Marxist thought and practice. For those of us who see the need to create new theories and practices in Marxism to combat the face that Capitalism has taken in our own time. Neo-Liberalism, Transnational Corporations, the IMF, Dependency, etc. all need to be adressed and fought.The same way the great thinkers of the past contributed to Marxism so must we! To not build off their ideas and continue to progress Marxism as those great thinkers have done is a betrayal of their efforts. We refuse to dishonor our comrades gone by leaving Marxism and it's practice stagnate!

  • 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.

  • Enver Hoxha

    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.

  • Marxist-Leninist-Maoist

    Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, as based mainly on the teachings of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, Iosef Stalin and Mao Zedong, is the highest qualitative stage of Marxism so far and is the guiding ideology of revolutionaries the world over who carry forward the fight for a world free of all class distinctions, all exploitative production relations, all oppressive social relations, and all corresponding, reactionary ideas - the communist world of the future. Basic Marxist-Leninist principles were implemented successfully, though with shortcomings, in the Soviet Union during the leadership of Lenin and Stalin, but it was the experience of socialist construction and the 'Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution' in the People's Republic of China under Mao however that heralded 'Mao Tse-Tung Thought' and later 'Maoism' as a new qualitative advancement of Marxism-Leninism. Key principles of Maoism include:

    1. The people's war strategy, i.e. a strategy of mass-based guerilla war principally relying on the exploited social base leading to the encirclement of the more developed areas that profit from the exploitation of that social base.

    2. The mass line, which encompasses four main points: a) learn from the people while leading them, b) serve the people while leading them, c) rely on the people while leading them, and d) practice leadership mainly in the form of guidance rather than commands.

    3. The philosophical, strategic, and tactical approach of identifying the contextual principal contradiction and attacking the contextual main enemy. (Divide and conquer, in other words.)

    4. New democratic revolution and the corresponding strategic block of four classes as the path to sustainable socialism for countries with pre-capitalist modes of production.

    5. Political and cultural revolutions within the proletarian revolution as occasionally necessary.

    Unfortunately, following the lead of the Khrushchovite revisionists who destroyed socialism in the USSR after Stalin's death, after Mao's death the PRC was also taken over by revisionists who revise and betray fundamental principles of Marxism in the interests of capitalism and, like the USSR before it, a once great proletarian state was taken down the path of capitalist restoration and social-imperialism. Because of this, we put particular emphasis on the dangers of revisionism. Despite the defeats of the 20th century, the flame of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is still being kept alive and advanced by the experiences of the countless CPs in the third world waging or preparing for people's war. Long live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!

  • Unite the Left

    This group is for organizing the growing anti-capitalist sentiment throughout the world into programmatic unity. We believe that in order to defeat capitalism, socialists of all tendencies must come together and act as one in the fight against exploitation. In this group we hope to draw in adherents of all tendencies to engage in open minded debate on what actions should be taken in the establishment of socialism. No matter what our differences are, we all agree on the most important thing... Capitalism must go, and only together can we get rid of it!

  • 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!
