Palestine-Israel conflict May 2021 Megathread [General strike underway in the West Bank]

I figured since the situation is still ongoing, a megathread may be easier to follow. …

Communist chat through Matrix

I created a matrix room for anybody on Lemmy to join. The main goal of this chat is to bring people together and use the internet for organizing. …

Fun fact, India's original constitution describes the country as a "socialist secular democratic republic"

It’s on page 32 of the PDF I linked, right from the government of India’s website. But the wording was changed away in 1976, removing the words socialist and secular…

Has anyone noticed an alarming amount of anti-vax type rhetoric among communists?

From discussions online and articles from communist or “leftist” publications, I’ve seen an increase of anti-vax/mandate thinking, either being framed as …

Those of you who live in the West, do you want to or have attempted to move to a socialist country?

I’ve heard many socialists/communists really wanting to get the hell of the West, while many others feel that they should do work where they are toward socialism/communism. Just curious about opinions on this community. Would you want to actually go to a socialist country with all the difficulties t…

Marxism (and by extension communism) is not moralistic and does not need to take morality into account

This was probably a huge milestone for me when I realised it. Marxism does not talk about morality at all, it’s irrelevant to the practice of communism. We can defend communism as a system and (one of) the logical result of the class contradictions in capitalism without ever resorting to morality. …

Definition of Socialism

When defining something it is important that the definition includes all instances of the use of the word (that have real material basis) at hand. It is also necessary to note that characteristics of a word do not equal a definition as if a word was to meet a checklist criteria to be defined as some…


Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
