For a couple of months the creators of this blog have been discussing, in what way can we bring forward Revolutionary politics and Marxism-Leninism-Maoism into a new age? What would our contribution be? We were young Communists, who came to age in our political development with the US Imperialists launching their war for Empire, asserting its domination in this World. In this context we became Revolutionaries. There has been great development of the people’s struggles across the world, and right in the middle of the Imperialist monster, there are Movements developing out of the contradictions of the Capitalist system.
With the guiding princples of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. We took the maxims of “Serve the People” and “Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win” to heart, hit the streets and fought back. We in the process, we came to understand, we were lacking something principle to carry forward these movements to become revolutionary ones. We were lacking actual revolutionary leadership, a revolutionary line that could polarize politics, and the methodology of Mass Line to actually raise the consciousness of the masses.
What could the snot nosed young Rebels do? We didn’t, like many, burn away and go back to being a slave to life. No longer cogs, and conscious of the need for struggle and development to make revolution, we sought something to do. We are still seeking. However it is necessary to do this not insularly, but with like minded committed radicals and revolutionaries to begin engaging these questions. We had the duty to open up the space for such discussions, especially amongst the rebellious Youth like us, to create the spirit, the culture, and the politics that can help us through the path and roads toward Revolution.
We decided to create this blog precisely to do this. The blog is collectively run and will be discussing a wide array of issues pertaining to the burning questions of Liberation. Our experiences with blogs in the past have been dominated by the fact there was a lack of collectivity and merely came from the subjective spontaneity of its Authors. We will strive for a rigor, for line discussion and struggle, and for honest and thought provoking debates. We hope those who will read this blog join us in our project, and take up the project themselves.
