Moonlight and Magic: Where is the Black LGBTQ representation in media and Hollywood?

The social media campaign #OscarsSoWhite put front and center the controversy around the lack of media representation of marginalized people in Hollywood, and entertainment as a whole. It’s no surprise then that this struggle for narratives that represent the diversity of people of color, women, LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, Black, trans,...

In rural Florida, unions seek solidarity with immigrant workers

In the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump won some working class voters by appealing to the indignity and insecurity that these people face under capitalism. Though Trump’s rhetoric made a show of concern for working class issues, it was ridden with noxious themes that divide the working class – racism,...

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...

  CPUSA's message of equality, democracy, and socialism found an eager audience at this year's Juneteenth celebration in Buffalo, NY—the largest such festival on the East coast.   Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of legal chattel slavery in the United States, celebrates the revolutionary work of abolition and Reconstruction. In that revolutionary spirit, comrades from CPUSA’s New York district joined in the festivities, staffing a table with a cooler of ice cold punch and piles of Communist books and pamphlets, including “Bill of Rights Socialism” and “A Handy Guide to Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy.” We moved a lot of paper,...

    Thanks for writing in, and for asking nicely.  If we kept files on people, we would certainly put a note in yours about how polite you were.  Of course, it would be meaningless, since executions and forced labor aren't really part of our socialist vision.  (Actually, if you take prison labor and capital punishment in the United States as examples, you might say that those are capitalist tools of social control.) Are you sure you're not a member of the working class?  The working class, for us, includes everyone who has to work and draw a salary to stay alive.  That includes doctors, engineers, university professors, and other "professionals," just as much as custodians, fast food workers, mechanics, and truck...
