Confusing times of incredible inequality, constant war, politics at impasse and the bankruptcy of bromides. While we've seen a resurgence in activism in recent years, spurred in part by racist police violence and impending climate change, many of the past theoretical tools that people have used to make revolutionary change have been declared off-limits. Many of us live in capitalist societies that have enforced an anticommunist doctrine with velvet gloves and iron fists. We want to make Left Theory accessible again. Bite-sized. Daily. Like a revolutionary wordle.
Tales from the Krampus Corps
The Krampus Corps were called "terrorists" for rebelling against the North Pole regime during the War on Christmas, against the chains put on them. I may be the last surviving "hornless brother".

The Revolution, Brought to You by Nike
This is a (longish) short story about brand strategy and revolution, published by Fireside. Deeply informed by being nose-deep in the never-ending election/political threads since, what, July? ...Content warning for contemporary politics.
A One-PDF History of European Socialism and Communism
Some friends and I compiled a 500-page PDF that does the following (from the Introduction): "We present here a history of twentieth-century communism through primary sources, divided into fourteen chapters arranged in chronological order.

We hope that this reader will provide the foundation for seminars and reading groups." [more inside]
'56: A Story of the Hungarian Revolution
My book is based on the stories told by my family and their friends, refugees who escaped from Communist Hungary during the revolution, as well as fragments that I found in books and interviews of others. Many incidents actually happened, many did not, but my goal in writing it is not historical accuracy: I want to share the stories of the Hungarian freedom fighters of '56 in a way that reflects their courage and humanity into our century, because they deserve to be remembered.
Socialism In One Blog
A group blog written by some of the comrades from /r/Communism. I thought having a forum for extended writings by people at /r/Communism was a nice idea and after proposing it and having quite a few people interested, we set up a little home on the net. There is no single line pushed by the blog, each user has their own perspective. The project is an attempt at exposition and dialog. Current writings include: Pacifism as Privilege, Tibetan Feudalism, Marxism and Oppression, Violence in Media, the Zeitgeist Movement, and more.
