Unintentionally, Trump has put the idea of sanctuaries on steroids

Sanctuary churches. Sanctuary schools. Sanctuary cities. Sanctuary workplaces? Albeit far from its intentions, the Trump administration has put the idea of sanctuaries on steroids — spaces free from the threat of raids and deportations. As immigrant workers, unions and their allies look for creative ways to counter anti-immigrant onslaughts, they’re...

Canada: Trudeau plans 70 percent military spending increase

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Christa Freeland, Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are working hard to convince Canadians that a 70 percent increase in military spending is a noble expression of their government’s commitment to Arctic sovereignty and global security. But the truth is much simpler and...

Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

Marxism demands a concrete analysis of a concrete situation. This is fundamental to an understanding of Marxist strategy and tactics.  The concept of strategy and tactics must be updated and applied to the specific situation the working class is dealing with at any given moment - in this case the post-election period and Trump's presidency.  In particular, neoliberal capitalism and the specific gravity of its current crisis and how it impacts the working class must be understood.  The GOP drive to implement right-to-work laws all across the country is clearly key but it's not the only issue. Alvaro Rodriguez, a...

In Engel’s address at the graveside of Karl Marx, he said “Marx discovered the law of development of human history: the simple fact, hitherto concealed by an overgrowth of ideology, that mankind must first of all eat, drink, have shelter and clothing, before it can pursue politics, science, art, religion, etc.” Another pertinent quote is that according to the labor theory of value, “all value comes from nature altered by human labor.” In the past, Marxists have focused on the labor part of that equation, noting that how human labor is organized, how production is organized, is the fundamental determinant...

The West Philadelphia club is right now starting 2017 by moving on three fronts: 1) Our own series of club educationals to keep our members up to date on issues that have been confronting the people of our community (as well as most communities, we believe). Our January educational was on the topic "Education that works". The matter of funding and supporting public education has been a "hot button and front burner" issue for some years in Philly as in other cities. Our presenter that night was a career psychiatrist with a long standing interest in education and child rearing....

    To my fellow Americans in the Communist Party, My name is Alexi. I am a progressive and I've been studying United States history in school. I wanted to let you know that I greatly appreciate the work you have done for labor unions, for workers' rights, and for our country...

     Hi, Alexi.  Let me say what a pleasure it was to receive your kind words—especially at a time when we’ve been receiving more and more threats of violence from people who identify with Donald Trump and his racist, sexist, anti-worker vision.  With respect to your idea about socialism/communism in theory vs. in practice, I’d like to make two quick points.  The first is that capitalism generates poverty and insecurity for the many, and massive wealth for the few.  So it doesn’t work in practice (unless you happen to be a billionaire).  But it also doesn’t sound good in theory.  I mean, a world based on constant competition, a war of all against all just to stay alive, work, get an...
