Anti-Imperialism
Marxism.ca Topic Index

  1. The ABC of National Liberation Movements
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1969
    A war is politics continued by other, that is forcible, means. Our attitude toward a war must be congruent with our attitude toward the politics of which it is the continuation. This determines our principled position on the question of whether to support or oppose a given war - not primarily our opinion of the men, the government or the class leading the war, not our opinion of their past or present crimes. The latter considerations will be very relevant to how we support or oppose a war, but not to whether we do.
  2. Either Or
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1916
    It is a question of either-or! Either we nakedly and shamelessly betray the International or we take the International in deadly seriousness and attempt to extend it into a firm stronghold, a bulwark, of the international socialist proletariat and of world peace.
  3. The Junius Pamphlet
    The Crisis of Social Democracy

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 1916
    The voting of war credits in August 1914 was a shattering moment in the life of individual socialists and of the socialist movement in Europe. Those who had worked for and wholly believed in the ability of organized labour to stand against war now saw the major social democratic parties of Germany, France, and England rush to the defense of their fatherlands. Worker solidarity had proved an impotent myth. Rosa Luxemburg had for years warned against the stultifying effects of the overly bureaucratized German Social Democratic Party and the anti-revolutionary tendencies of the trade unions that played such a large role in the party's policy decisions. She spent much of the war in jail, where she wrote and then smuggled this pamphlet. Published under the name "Junius," the pamphlet became the guiding statement for the International Group, which became the Spartacus League.
  4. Let's Stop Kidding Ourselves About the NDP
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1989
    Canadian socialists are terribly reluctant to give up their illusions about the NDP.

  7. 'Socialism in One Country' Before Stalin, and the Origins of Reactionary 'Anti-Imperialism'
    The Case of Turkey, 1917-1925

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Today's climate of "anti-imperialism" compels us to turn back to the history of such a profoundly reactionary ideology, deeply anti-working class both in the #advanced# and #underdeveloped# countries, by which any force, no matter how retrograde, that turns a gun against a Western power becomes #progressive# and worthy of #critical# or #military# support, or for the less subtle, simply #support#.
  8. Wobblies & Zapatistas
    Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical Theory

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2008
    Wobblies and Zapatistas offers readers an encounter between two generations and two traditions. Staughton Lynd and Andrej Grubacic meet in dialogue in an effort to bring together the anarchist and Marxist traditions, to discuss the writing of history by those who make it, and to remind us of the idea that 'my country is the world'.
