A familiar saying at this time of year has it that when all the Jews spell Hanukkah the same way, Deliverance will truly have come! (Other variants include Hanukah, Chanukah, Hanuka, Khanuka, Khanike, and more.) The joke is telling because like most things, the holiday can be viewed from multiple...

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 Oklahoma CPUSA  is just getting started. We have several folks who attend monthly  webinars taught by CPUSA leaders: seven all told.  We do a email newsletter once a month to about 50 comrades who are on the national register of members that live in Oklahoma. We hope to gear ourselves up for future tabling events in Oklahoma for 2018 especially around the many college campuses during their spring and fall semesters. Our goal is to recruit millennials and provide national support through education to these younger potential members. We have a Facebook page and are working to build its...

  • Q
    I'm a young Communist, and I'm having a lot of trouble with arguments. How do I hold an argument with Conservatives?
  • A
    Hi David, Thanks for writing in, and for a good, practical question about how to engage in ideological struggle. The short answer is, why are you arguing with conservatives?  What's your goal in having the conversation?  Remember that our objective, as communists, is to win people to our way of thinking--not to score points or show everyone how clever or how passionate we are.  Sometimes, right-wingers use arguments as traps, to bog you down and waste your time.  If the other person keeps moving the goalposts, or isn't talking with you in good faith, sometimes it's best to let it go. Focus on people who are still on the fence, who haven't made up their mind yet. Have conversations that...
