These guys must be serious about recruitment! Look at all this stuffs they sent me for free! (No the Xi book, but that came at the same time in the mail so that’s why it’s in the picture). I’m not sure if I want to join (I’ve been working with FRSO for a little bit, very small chapter locally) but I definitely want to donate to offset all this free propaganda! For sure made my day! So I will at least plug the prudent links.

The Party itself https://partyofcommunistsusa.org/

USFSP https://usfriendsofthesovietpeople.org/

They even have a publisher I hadn’t heard about yet. https://newoutlookpublishers.net/

Youth Wing www.leagueofyoungcommunistsusa.org

For whatever reason, my area is mostly dominated by Socialist Alternative and DSA (Eww) as far as Left-Wing orgs go. PCUSA and FRSO are kind of in the area, but not to the extent to where they have official chapters. Sad being an ML around here.

Hope you have a better time with PCUSA than I’m doing with CPUSA lol.

Don’t get me wrong: I like the rank-and-file of the CPUSA, but the I have… disagreements with the leadership, let’s just say.

as an American communist who isn’t yet a member of a party, I hope eventually we can unite our struggles into a united front or some other sort of vehicle which can carry out the people’s struggle. The working class is being chiseled away at, the class war is being accelerated by the crisis-laden bourgeoisie

We need communist unity over “left” unity.

And preferably a class unity under Marxism-Leninism.

You should definitely join some organisation if you arent in one already. Even if its not perfect, the best way to change it is from within. And Marxism is a collective ideology, meaning that you cant carry out effective work on your own or on the internet.

I know, I’m just impatient. Saying organizations in the USA are in their formative stages is a understatement. Every time I get involved it is usually more or less a study group who occasionally show up to rally somewhere. I know it’s unrealistic to want to show up and go do a revolution. I’m enjoying my time with FRSO and NAARPR, even my time with DSA. I’m just not exactly mentally fit to be a huge leader, and with FRSO having like >10 members in my area I feel like everyone has to be a leader if we are gonna grow and I get the impression that most parties in the area in the same boat. I won’t give up though, I know I can read 1000 books and it won’t make a revolution happen. Also I need to learn to drive, that’s making organizing hard lol. I’m way too old to be taking the bus everywhere lol

Maybe you have the wrong idea what being a communist means. To be honest I only joined my party about half a year ago, but most of what we do in our colectivo is studying and organising. Plus sometimes hanging posters or going to a demonstration. But it certainly doesnt mean attacking the police or crazy things like that.

Oh don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with studying and organizing. The Orgs definitely got the studying, I don’t know if the organizing is so good, but I think that’s just because America has been going backwards for so long, so we are pretty much starting from over trying to win the trust of the masses. Like I said, I am impatient and just want us to win already…which is of course idealistic nonsense, I am aware lol.

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.
