Who We Are

We are figuring out how to become revolutionary socialists, not hyper-Democrats or ultra-left sectarians. Our aim is to be students of Marxism and to create a healthy, democratic, and disciplined group capable of becoming a genuine Marxist pull of attraction to young people disillusioned with the US Left's tendency to give continual support to the horrendous Democratic Party. Because we are focused on program first, we have little care for titles or labels. Some come to our group with the self-prescribed label of some sort of "Marxist-Leninist," "Maoist," "Trotskyist," "De Leonist," and many other "ists," but we give little thought to self-prescribed labels and demand to hear where exactly one stands regarding policy and program. With so many views and lively discussions in our group, we have learned that what binds us together is our program. We take special care to discuss and debate any amendments to our program and operate in a strictly democratic fashion. Once a vote is taken, we follow through, but internally complete freedom of discussion is what gives our group life. We are trying to set up the foundations of the future organization we want in the United States, and we hope other groups and individuals that find agreement with our rules and program reach out to discuss how greater unity can come between us in our struggle towards a Red Republic.
