  • 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.

  • Human Progress Group

    A discussion group for all progressive comrades on RevLeft, who firmly take the anthropocentric position against capitalism/the price system, religious superstition, bioconservatism in any of it's forms, neo-luddism, primitivism and any other attempts/tendencies to halt or regress development.



    We are leftists of the variety that always puts the well being, pleasure and freedom of the human being in the center in a rational, socialistic, anthropocentric fashion and shuns technophobia as madness -- whether we otherwise identify as anarchists, marxists, or technocrats. A wish to combat reactionary forms of bioconservative or 'green' influence within the left is a uniting trait for the group.



    We are a group of comrades who recognise human progress, material abundance and technological development, but also a society consisting of individuals with a healthy and rational mindset as essential requirements for the building of a truly equal, classless society. This means that group members are to be atheists, support the advancement of atheism and secularism, as well as oppose the influence of religion in society.



    The group is not by any means meant to be exclusively for transhumanists, but for all leftists whose goal is the total liberation of mankind from both material, biological and moralistic limitations. In other words, for all those who realise that all the of the 'old crap' must go, if mankind is to reach it's full potential!



    To summarise, to be eligible for membership in this group, you have to:



    - Recognise the existence of anthropocentrism and biocentrism as two opposed paradigms, support and promote anthropocentrism and oppose biocentrism



    - Support and advocate increased scientific research and technological progress, oppose any attempts to hinder/regress these



    - Advocate a secular society and the promotion of atheism, oppose organised religion and defend the right of every child to a secular education

  • 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!

  • People's War

    Protracted People's War (for short People's War or PPW) is a communist military doctrine first theorized by Mao Tse-tung for mobilizing the masses and seizing state power. Contrasted with the several "insurrectionary" strategies which view the revolution as one defining moment, People's War doctrine takes a gradual approach of obtaining several military and political victories, establishing base areas, and, at every important conjuncture, accumulating those forces with the most advanced consciousness into communist ranks.



    The three defining stages of development in the course of People's War are:



    (1) Strategic defensive -- where communist fighters are mainly engaged in guerrilla warfare whereas state forces are on the offensive;



    (2) Strategic equilibrium -- the People's Army can take state forces head on and on a more equal basis;



    (3) Strategic offensive -- where the People's Army has the advantage and the state forces are on the defensive.



    People's War has been applied in accordance with the concrete conditions of countries by communist and national liberation organizations in the oppressed countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since the triumph of revisionism in China, two of the most advanced attempts at seizure of power took place in Peru and Nepal -- whose respective People's Wars reached strategic equilibrium and strategic offensive. Today, Communist Parties which adhere to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism are engaged in People's War in India, the Philippines, Turkey and Bangladesh.



    Long Live People's War!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Orthodox Trotskyism

    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.

  • International Marxist Tendency

    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.
