  2. The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The eruption of mass opposition to US President Trump is an event of enormous importance. It poses the question of the program and leadership that will guide the mass social anger at the militaristic and socially reactionary policies of this administration.

    Trump is the true face of the capitalist oligarchy. The coming to power of his administration is not an aberration in an otherwise peaceful and democratic society, but the outcome of decades of social cuts, growing inequality and unending war, under both Democrats and Republicans.

    The series of articles in this pamphlet outline the political foundations for understanding the origin of Trump's victory and advance a socialist strategy for the working class, the only social force that can defeat the drive toward dictatorship and war.

  3. Science & Socialism

    Science & Socialism

    The progress of science and reason has always depended upon the progress of society and social relations. Capitalism is a social system in which all human activity, including science, is subordinated to private profit. Technology has been used, not to feed the world's population, but to develop ever more destructive weapons of war.

    The Trump administration has threatened funding to all US agencies that have contributed to the advancement of scientific understanding, while increasing the military budget by $54 billion.

  4. Why Study the Russian Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    Why Study the Russian Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    The 1917 Russian Revolution of was the most significant event of the 20th Century. The taking of power by the Russian working class, under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, transformed the course of human history and still reverberates to this day. Between February and October 1917, Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional Government and established the first socialist workers state in history. These events continue to generate debate and controversy. The essays in this volume are unique, in that they are written from a Marxist perspective, looking back from the vantage point of 100 years, and putting the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective, under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

  5. Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Excellent summary by V.I. Lenin of the historical, philosophical and economic foundations of Marxism. Lenin wrote "The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism" as a tribute marking the thirtieth anniversary of Marx's death. This short work has become one of the best known introductions to the complex theories of Marxism, precisely explaining how Marx "continued and consummated" classical German philosophy, English political economy and French socialism and revolutionary doctrine. Lenin introduces the reader to the most essential concepts of Marxism an "integral and harmonious" scientific theory based on a dialectical and historical materialist understanding of society and the development of social knowledge. He then provides a brief exposition of Marx's development of the labor theory of value, the theory of the class struggle, and Marx's unique and most significant contribution to political economy, the theory of surplus value.

  7. The Struggle Against Imperialism and for Workers' Power in Iran

    The Struggle Against Imperialism and for Workers' Power in Iran

    This pamphlet addresses pivotal issues of socialist strategy in a country that for decades has been a target of US imperialist intrigue and aggression, and where the working class, as heralded by the protests that opened 2018, is now striving to find the road of independent class struggle. Based on an examination of Iran’s history and the global struggle against imperialism, the pamphlet demonstrates that a viable strategy to defeat imperialism can only be founded on the working class, and requires its mobilization as an independent political force in opposition to all factions of the bourgeoisie.

  9. The World Socialist Web Site and the Defense of Julian Assange

    The World Socialist Web Site and the Defense of Julian Assange

    For six years, Julian Assange, who exposed the crimes of the US military and intelligence apparatus, has been imprisoned in London, trapped in the Ecuadorean embassy under increasingly onerous and precarious conditions. Now he has been denied any contact with the outside world, unable to receive visitors, make phone calls or access the Internet. The perpetrators of this crime are not the governments routinely denounced as “rogue regimes” by imperialist powers and targeted for military aggression, but the imperialist powers themselves—principally the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States. The attack on Assange is the spearhead of a drive by the major capitalist governments led by the United States to censor the internet and destroy democratic rights. It is being abetted by the silence of virtually the entire coterie of pseudo left groups. Since 2010 when Assange was forced to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London the World Socialist Web Site has been in the forefront of his defense. The collection of articles in this pamphlet are a record of that campaign. Learn More

  10. A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 1990 - 2016

    A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 1990 - 2016

    Beginning with the first Persian Gulf conflict of 1990–91, the United States has been at war continuously for a quarter century. While using propaganda catchphrases, such as “defense of human rights” and “War on Terror,” to conceal the real aims of its interventions in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa, as well as its confrontation with Russia and China, the United States has been engaged in a struggle for global hegemony.

    The essays and lectures in this volume, informed by a Marxist understanding of the contradictions of American and world imperialism, analyze the progression of military interventions and geopolitical crises as they have developed over the past quarter century, not as a sequence of isolated episodes, but as moments in the unfolding of an interconnected historical process.
