  • Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism

    For the discussion of Juche Idea, North Korea, DPRK, North Korean history and culture, Kimchi, revolutionary theory and praxis, Kim J o n g-ILL, Kimchi recipes, and more.



    "Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is an integral system of the idea, theory and method of Juche, and a great revolutionary ideology representative of the Juche era. Guided by Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, we should conduct Party building and Party activities, so as to sustain the revolutionary character of our Party and advance the revolution and construction in line with the ideas and intentions of the President and the General."-Kim Jong-Un.



    Three Principles as outlined by Chairman Kim Il-Sung:



    I. Political independence.

    II. Economic self-sustenance.

    III. Self-reliance in defense.



    In a nutshell, points from On the Juche Idea by Kim Jong- ILL:



    -The people must have independence in thought and politics, economic self-sufficiency, and self-reliance in defense.



    -Policy must reflect the will and aspirations of the masses and employ them fully in revolution and construction.



    -Methods of revolution and construction must be suitable to the situation of the country.



    - The most important work of revolution and construction is molding people ideologically as communists and mobilizing them to constructive action.

  • New Communist Movement

    the Principles of the New Communist Group



    Who is this group for:



    Contemporary Leftwing Maoists/Hoxhaists, Post-Trotskyist ,Marcyites, contemporary Marxist-Leninists (those not stuck in the 1940s), pro-Cuban/Venezuelan Trotskyists (again, those not stuck in the 1940s), Leftwing Bolivarians, pro-cuban/liberation movements Anarcho-Syndicalists/Autonomists



    Supporters/sympathizers of the Workers World Party (USA), Kasama Project (USA), Party of Socialism and Liberation (USA), Socialist Workers Party (USA), Communist Party of Cuba, Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), The Shining Path (Peru), Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB), Communist Party of the Philippines/New Peoples Army, Revolutionary Communist Group (UK), Socialist Action (UK), Workers Party of Belgium, the New Communist Party of the Netherlands, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Tudeh Party (Iran), Communist Mazdoor Kissan Party (Pakistan), Communist Party of India (Marxist), Pole of Communist Rebirth in France, Communist Party of Greece, Portuguese Communist Party, German Communist Party, Kommunistische Plattform (within the German Left Party), Turkish Communist Party, Communist Party of Turkey (Marxist Leninist), Freie Deutsche Jugend, The Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, the FARC, ect...



    Also historical supporters of the 1960s era SDS/WUO, the Black Panther Party, Japanese Red Army, Yippies, EZLN, Batasuna/EHAK (Basque country), Carlos the Jackal, ETA, Sinn Fein/Official IRA/INLA, the WFDY, the PSUV (Venezuela), the MAS (Bolivia), 1960s/70s era Vietnamese communists, and progressive national liberation movements in their revolutionary periods (the Sandinista's (Nicaragua), FREMILO (Mozambique), MPLA (Angola), African National Congress (South Africa), New Jewel Movement (Grenada) ect.)



    [note: the above is not an exclusive list and obviously there are differences between the groups and positions mentioned above, its to give the range of perspectives that this group would cater to and to mention ideological positions and groups that are historically or politically related to the new left as distinct from old left or post-modernist 'post-left'.]



    Who this is not for:



    -Sectarian/anti-Cuban Anti-Revisionists, people who advance the theory of 'social imperialism' to the point of openly supporting imperialist (i.e. NATO) reaction against contemporary and former socialist (or revisionist) states



    -Active endorsers of Eurocommunism, "Democratic Socialism", and other forms of social-democratic reformism under the banner of communism



    -Orthodox Trotskyists, Cliffites, anyone who calls for the overthrow of existing workers states rather than their defense or anyone who takes a third camp line in geopolitical issues.



    -People who advance the theory of 'state capitalism' rather then degenerated/bureaucratic/revisionist socialism (Left-Communists, Cliffites, third camp Trotskyists and Ultra-left Maoists)



    -People who obsessively support any dead creepy small state communist leader (such as Hoxha, Ceausescu, Pol Pot, "Jim Jones" etc) or who take a "stalinogothic lifestylist" rather than a contemporary Marxist-Leninist position.



    Unifying principles:



    -Militant defense of socialist states, ('tankie'/cold-war geopolitics). This also means contemporary socialist societies (although debatable in which degree) like Cuba, Nepal, Vietnam, Laos, and the DPRK



    -Libertarian social theory, with radical approaches to all social issues, including socialist feminism, gay liberation, youth liberation, and oppressed internal semi-colonies etc./rejection of paternalism in all of its forms including anti-drug, anti-sex, and anti-rock and roll (kidding) positions.



    -Acceptance of Lenin's theory of Imperialism, including labour aristocracy and imperialist super-profits while recognizing that hyper-exploited people exist in the first world.





    Possible theoretical issues:



    How much of Maoism is correct; Bolivarianism, mechanisms for co-opted labour and to what extent labour in imperialist centres is co-opted; national chauvinism in the first world left and in westernized third world parties, whether it exists or not, and if so its causes; the status of Venezuela and Nepal; the movement in India; existentialist social theory and philosophy; what can communists do of use in the first world; the relationship between patriarchy and capitalism; social libertarianism vs communitarian/paternalist leftwing views of social issues; etc...



    I would also suggest that the above would be the guidelines in terms of the ethos and 'official' politics but that with the consensus the people who accept them people who fit with the attitude and general perspective but differ on particular points could be admitted.





    In solidarity,



    TragicClown & Deconditioned Reflex +1

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    For all those who's passion finds an outlet in music with themes about love and romance. Countless genres around the world from oldies and 70's ballads in the west to C-ambient and soothing J-pop ballads in the east. Romantic tones find themselves being a universal language. We don't care if this music makes us seem soft or weak, the mood it puts us in is powerful.

  • 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.
