World Factbook Entry

The Autonomist Antifa movement, or antifascism, opposes the domination of Proletarian and Subaltern peoples. Autonomism is anti–authoritarian communism. The Antifa Luxemburgist Communist Collective™ (ALCC™) or Antifa Luxemburgism™—as a unifying agent of left regroupment—engages in protection and defense, never aggression and offense. ALCC’s left refoundation is based upon the Linksocialism from below of LinkMarxist–Luxemburgist libertarian communism. We also use LinkBhaskarian critical realism, a metatheory, and Linkintersectionality, a critical theory. Our website is @ Linkwww.Antifa.red. Telegram us. Although we do not accept other individual member nations into this region, embassies with non–fascist or anti–fascist regions are warmly welcomed and invited.

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.

21st-century fascism is, to many of us in Antifa, different from 20th-century fascism. The new fascism would, for instance, include right authoritarianism in general, including the U.S. MAGA movement.

I am deeply concerned about events in Washington. It looks like impeachment proceedings may soon begin against Trump. Like a cornered animal, I am concerned what he might do to prove himself. Follow John Bolton and start a war with Iran perhaps?

As U.S. President Trump feels increasingly cornered and threatened, he may become a threat to human survival. Obviously, he has no problem caging people along the U.S.-Mexican border.

I have sometimes read other Marxists, on NationStates, argue against gun control. My question is: Where, in the writings of Marx or Engels (not later writers), is there any statement which would support this viewpoint? I have never seen one. Certainly, in a future hypothetical revolution, revolutionaries will presumably have weapons. However, there is no Marxist revolution in my country (the U.S.). Most people who own guns support the gun culture and are, generally, conservatives and, in some cases, on the far right. My own view is that no one should have guns now, including the police. Now, I realize that my proposal is unrealistic. However, I think that, as a dialectic or contradiction, it makes sense to express this perspective. Why? To counter the position of the National Rifle Association. That organization argued that everyone, including those with psychoses (such as paranoid schizophrenia), should be permitted to own guns. When the time arrives, as Marx and Engels argued in an address (http://www.markfoster.net/dcf/Address_of_the_Central_Committee_to_the_Communist_League.pdf), revolutionary proletarians will be armed. In that same address, they contrast these revolutionary proletarians with the petty bourgeoisie (petite bourgeoisie): “The democratic petty bourgeois, far from wanting to transform the whole society in the interests of the revolutionary proletarians, only aspire to a change in social conditions which will make the existing society as tolerable and comfortable for themselves as possible.” In 1850, the year of that address, Marx and Engels were hopeful that all proletarians would become revolutionaries. Their disappointment increased over time.
