Antifa Luxemburgist Communist Collective Board



[+] Advanced...



Somehow the Collective got deleted, and I had to refound it.

First week is over and, as far as I know, no fascist students. If so, they usually drop my class the first week.

I had a run in with a self-avowed Nazi in the forum, but s/he hasn't bothered me since. Anyway, the case has been reported.

As Antifa, we must never give up our shared commitment to defending the victims of neofascism, neonazism, white identitarianism, the alt-right, and the like. If necessary, we must be willing to lay down our bodies between the fascist filth and their intended victims.

The enemy of the Left is within: a left-wing populism which opposes intersectionality, so-called social justice warriors (even as a tactic), and so forth. Marx was not a left-wing populist. He recognized that oppression was a complex, multifaceted, intersecting world-system.

Some communists support the state and others (including anarcho-communists and some libertarian Marxists, such as autonomist Marxists and council communists) want to see the state abolished (ASAP).

Other libertarian Marxists, such as Luxemburgists (i.e., including myself), are libertarian on an authoritarianism-libertarianism scale but do not object to a democratic proletarian state (at least on a temporary basis).
Marxist-Leninist-Stalinists are generally statists.

Trotskyists are all over the map on this issue. A good acquaintance of mine, for example, is a libertarian Trotskyist. I used to be a Trotskyist, and he and I get along quite well.

I have one class where all of my students have selected the NationStates semester exam. For the most part, they are having a good time.

A little secret:

Should a fascist, or anyone for that matter, wish to debate with you on their terms, flatly refuse. Should you consent, they will win. They know their rules much better than you do. Long after you are frustrated, they will be talking up a storm. Insist that they they dialogue with you following your own directions. Lay out a regimen, and never back down. Deftly lead them onto your turf of familiarity. Set out guidelines, and topics for discussion, which work to your advantage. In many cases, an unjustified self–confidence, sometimes conceit, will seduce the other person into acceding to your demands. At that point, the dispute has ended. You have now won the argument before it even got started.

Arguably, fascism is a form of liberation but altogether the wrong kind. Many fascists, oddly enough, apparently wish to liberate the oppressor from the oppressed. This pseudo–deliverance is unequivocally opposed by the Antifa Luxemburgist Communist Collective. Some fash crudely misappropriate the language and symbols of the Left, including populist references to revolution and the utilization of a fist clenched in solidarity. These confiscations, perhaps intended to hoodwink certain less informed people, may occasionally be successful. However, Antifa activists should persevere in an alertness to such deceptive activities and, when appropriate, directly and decisively challenge them. An indispensable facet of any effective praxis—which is far more important than one’s chosen leftist current—must be intellectual warfare.

To emphasize my Jewish bona fides and Jewishness (Yiddish, יִידִישְׁקַיְיט, Yiyḏiyšəqạyəyṭ or Yiddishkeit), although I am a Levite (Hebrew, לֵוִי, Lēwiy, “joined” priestly tribe), a bar mitzvah (modified Hebrew, בַּר מִצְוָה, bạr miṣəwāh, “son of commandment”), and the child of two Ashkenazi (Hebrew, אַשְׁכְּנַזִּי, ʾẠšəkənạzziy, “German Rhinelander,” i.e., someone descended from Yiddish/Yiyḏiyš–speaking European Jews) parents, I do not practice Judaism.

I just joined another region (Communist Alliance) with one of my other nations.

I must admit to being genuinely angry, to the point of crying, about the situation of all the Latin American children being kept in makeshift prisons (like Walmarts). I wish the dialectic would hurry up and end the capitalist world-system.

One of the other regions I belong to is in the process of electing its next leader. Change can be good, and I am confident in the likely new leader, but it is sad to see the founder of the region leave his position.

I am now second in command to the new leader in the other region. Meanwhile, another region I belong to is currently being raided. You take the good with the bad.

Hal Draper(1914–1990), born Harold Dubinsky, was one of the founders of the neo–Trotskyist current, third–camp socialism (Hebrew, סוֹצְיָאלִיזְם שֶׁל הַמַחֲנֶה הַשְׁלִישִׁי, sōṣəyāʾliyzẹm šẹl hạ–mạḥănẹh hạ–šẹliyšiy; or Arabic, اِشْتِرَاكِيَّة الثَالِثَة لِلمُخَيَّم, ʾiš°tirākiyyaẗ ʾal–ṯāliṯaẗ lil–muẖayyam). As a noteworthy aside, Polish American Max Shachtman (Polish, Maks Shakhtman, 1904–1972, was also one of the first masterminds behind third–camp socialism. He eventually abandoned it and became a social democratic union organizer. Draper himself, a libertarian and heterodox neo–Trotskyist, is the individual who coined the term socialism from below (Hebrew, סוֹצְיָאלִיזְם מִלְמַטָה, sōṣəyāʾliyzẹm mi–ləmạṭāh; or Arabic, اِشْتِرَاكِيَّة مِن الأَسْفَل, ʾiš°tirākiyyaẗ min ʾal–⫯as°fal). Others, however, coming from a cross–section of Leftist tendencies, have utilized the concept in a similar fashion. Included among them are: Amrit Wilson, Orlando Chirino, Wayne Price, Dan Swain, Lucien van der Walt, and Michael Schmidt. Socialism from below must, sheerly by its definition, be juxtaposed with the socialism from above which, simultaneously, monopolized and wreaked havoc upon the 20ᵗʰ century. Organizations and publications that have expressed their support for this libertarian socialism from below include: Alliance for Workers’ Liberty, Center for Economic Research and Social Change (which publishes the International Socialist Review), New Politics, and ZCommunications.

From: (by me)

German Nazism (German, Nazismus), Italian Fascism (Italian, Fascismo), and Japanese State Shinto (Japanese, 國家神道, Guójiā Shéndào) are eternal stains upon human history. Each of them demonstates, after its own fashion, the potentially disastrous consequences of unchecked authoritarianism. Now, a comparable era might once again be upon us. We must remain ever–vigilant that the hell of global warfare never becomes a reality. In World War II, only one country, the United States, possessed and deployed the terrifying power of the atom. Today, under the collective spell of a nuclear arms race, that number has multiplied alarmingly. No signs of abatement can, alas, be observed. That same atom, the unit of existence, could, by the mere entry of a code, begin humanity’s universal nonexistence.

A new semester is upon me. Now, more flocks of my students will be descending upon NationStates to complete their term projects.

I just discovered that a certain individual who had been harassing me online was a Strasserist, a current of neonazism.

The book, which includes the pronunciations for these words and many more, is here:

As I developed into a devout and principled libertarian communist, I became completely antagonistic to various permutations of domination or oppression. For many non–libertarian communists, devoting even some of one’s time to combatting numerous items on the following alphabetized list would likely be disparaged, regrettably in my view, as social justice warfare with their opponents or combatants negatively portrayed as SJWs. Factually, each component can be best characterized as a highway forming intersections within the capitalist world–system. A one–dimensional or flat view of capitalism has real–life consequences. Analyzing, and subsequently preparing to demolish, capitalism, is purely an exercise in futility if one misunderstands, at the outset, the multifaceted nature of capitalism. Likewise, a surgeon would never operate before being trained in anatomy.

A short excerpt from one of my books:

American Autonomism, which includes Antifa in the U.S., was one of the finest fruits of the American New Left. Sadly, Antifa is viscerally hated by many Marxist–Leninists, syndicalists, and others—not to mention, fascists and the virtually synonymous third–positionists. We, those who bore witness to the history of the American New Left, genuinely believed in the immediacy of a genuine revolution, and, further, that we were among the vanguard. How, I frequently ask myself, could we be so horribly mistaken? The opposite of everything we anticipated transpired. The revolutionary optimism of the 1960s gave way to the inward–looking of the nonsensical New Age Movement and the intensely solipsistic psychobabble of the 1970s and, thereafter, the neoliberalism—Reaganomics in the U.S. and TINA (there is no alternative) in the UK—of the 1980s.

This is January of the bittersweet year of 2019. It is the 100ᵗʰ anniversary of the assassination of Rosa Luxemburg. 2019 would also have been my late father’s 100ᵗʰ birthday.

Hal Draper’s socialism from below is post–Trotskyist. Post–Trotskyism and neo–Trotskyism are terms given by some writers to tendencies which, while beginning in Trotskyism, either try to move beyond it or to renew it. Among those tendencies are international socialism and third–camp socialism. Draper was one of the leaders of third–camp socialism. I alternated between identifying with third–camp socialism and international socialism. In other words, I have been a post–Trotskyist, too. From within that post–Trotskyism, I turned to Luxemburgism. Near the end of Trotsky’s life, while exiled in North America, he had already adopted the informal, egalitarian style of libertarian Marxism. If he was not, sadly, assassinated in Mexico by a Soviet operative, Trotsky might have, over time, become a post–Trotskyist, too.
