  • Asian Communism

    This group is for discussing the Revolutions, and the current socialist state of countries all across the continent of Asia. These nations include from China to India. Nepal to North Korea. Kazakhstan to Laos. Vietnam to Mongolia. So one and so forth.



    In my opinion I think Communism reaching Asia is one of the most, if not, the most important thing Communism has to do.

    To quote CommunityBeliever:

    "There are 1.3 billion people in China and there are 1.2 billion people in India. Combined together India, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia (collectively known as the far East) make up a fifth of the world's land area and almost half of the world's population. As such, there is a very high amount of impoverished peasants and workers in East Asia relative to the world. The concentration of socialist revolutions in Asia is connected to these material conditions.



    There is also historical element as to why Asia has been subject to the most socialist revolutions. The first socialist revolution was in Russia, which immediately associated Asia with socialism. The main opponent of the USSR was the American empire, which actively worked to prevent socialism from reaching the Americas. In response to the success of the Cuban revolution the American empire nearly ended human civilisation as we know it through nuclear war.



    Since much of Asia is still subject to semi-colonial and semi-feudal conditions the enlightening scientific communist contributions to Asia is most important"



    This group is for every kind of ideology. Marxist-Leninists, Trotskyist's, Ultra-Left, and so on

  • Post-Marxism Discussion Group

    In this group we will assess the social relations of our modern globalized society as well as identify changes in the development of the capitalist historical stage and how these changes have interacted with the international population. Our assessment will draw from intellectual traditions other than Marxism but will remain socialist in nature. Discussion of all Post-Marxist and Neo-Marxist thinkers is welcome, as are the rich ideas of scholars outside of the Marxist current.

  • 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-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.

  • Libertarian Socialism

    From WikiPedia:

    Libertarian socialism (sometimes called social anarchism or left-libertarianism) is a group of political philosophies that promote a non-hierarchical, non-bureaucratic society without private property in the means of production. Libertarian socialists believe in converting present-day private productive property into common or public goods, while retaining respect for personal property. Libertarian socialism is opposed to coercive forms of social organization. It promotes free association in place of government and opposes the social relations of capitalism, such as wage labor. The term libertarian socialism is used by some socialists to differentiate their philosophy from state socialism, and by some as a synonym for anarchism.

    Adherents of libertarian socialism assert that a society based on freedom and equality can be achieved through abolishing authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite. Libertarian socialism also constitutes a tendency of thought that promotes the identification, criticism, and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of life.

    Accordingly, libertarian socialists believe that "the exercise of power in any institutionalized form—whether economic, political, religious, or sexual—brutalizes both the wielder of power and the one over whom it is exercised". Libertarian socialists generally place their hopes in decentralized means of direct democracy such as libertarian municipalism, citizens' assemblies, trade unions, and workers' councils.

    Political philosophies commonly described as libertarian socialist include most varieties of anarchism (especially anarchist communism, anarchist collectivism, anarcho-syndicalism, and mutualism) as well as autonomism, Communalism, participism, libertarian Marxist philosophies such as council communism and Luxemburgism, and some versions of "utopian socialism" and individualist anarchism.
