ICE is beyond reform; it must be abolished

As someone who was born and raised in the border state of New Mexico, I’m very familiar with political speak about immigrants and the border, especially when it comes to talking about safety. After 9/11, concerns about safety led to the passing of the Homeland Security Act, which created a...

GOP Rep. Jim Jordan implicated in sexual abuse at Ohio State University

Sexual assault. Scandal. Corruption. Denial. Since the start of 2018, those words have been synonymous with Republican and Democratic elected officials, the Scumbag-in-Chief Donald Trump, and university athletic departments. We can now add Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Ohio State University to that ever-growing list of sexual assault deniers. Last...

socialism in usa

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.

  • Q
    Why is your party engaging and giving legitimacy to identity politics? Class before identity! Identity politics only serves to split the workers against each other at the delight of the bourgeoisie! Please fight to unite the working class instead of dividing them. If you call yourselves Marxist-Leninists then please act...

    Hi Jack, Thanks for writing in.  Short answer: we are building working class unity.  Racism, sexism, national chauvinism, discrimination against LGBTQ people: these are the things that divide and weaken the working class.  That's why they are such powerful tools in the hands of capital. Capitalism isn't just an economic system.  It's a whole organization of society based on inequality between the class that produces value (workers) and the class that appropriates it (capitalists).  That social organization includes other forms of inequality, which shape how capitalism works and reinforce the rule of the capitalist class. For example, white supremacy arose within capitalism as a result of, and justification for, the expropriation, enslavement, and genocide of non-Europeans.  Other forms of inequality...

What's the difference between socialists and communists when it comes to understanding issues of race and identity? Did the CP "take advantage" of the race issue opportunistically? Or did it have a deeper appreciation of what was inherent in Marxism? Marx for example rejected anti-Irish prejudice among the British working class claiming there would never be a revolution unless they rid themselves of anti-Irish prejudice. "No nation can be fee so long as it oppresses others nations" he wrote. In Capitol he struck a similar theme when discussing slavery in the U.S. "Labor in the white skin cannot be free...

  Washington, D.C. --- In a tremendous show of unity, under a sea of Puerto Rican flags being waved high, thousands of Puerto Ricans and their supporters joined in the Unity March for Puerto Rico in the nation’s capital November 19 to demand justice for Puerto Rico. Demonstrators from across the northeast, Ohio, and as far as Chicago raised their voices in unison to demand the U.S. fully fund the relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which tore through the island more than two months ago. Most of the island is still without basic needs, electricity, and potable...

  In Hartford, Connecticut most clubs are organized by neighborhood. Each neighborhood club has a particular constant political outreach based upon the issues they face. The Asylum Ave club is focused on finding ways to provide political ideas for youth to get involved.  Many adults have joined based upon the need to organize among these young people.  Seven new members recently joined the club as a result of invitations to club meetings the club chair made to friends to whom he gives the People's World. Accompanying this has been the enormous amount of voter registration to change the many policies of...
