Discussion: Revolutionary Communism vs. "Democratic Socialism"


Point One:


Democratic socialists-at their "most radical"-want to "redistribute the wealth" within the U.S. But think for a minute: Where does this great wealth come from? All the riches and resources piled up by capitalist-imperialist America have come, and come in large part, first from slavery and the theft of land domestically, and from its relentless economic, political, and military domination of the masses of people all over the world...

Without a revolution that overthrows the whole system of capitalism-imperialism, all you're doing is redistributing spoils and plunder atop this food chain, leaving intact the vast exploitative and oppressive economic and social relations that underlie this, crushing lives and destroying spirits. Fuck that. Only an internationalist revolution-one that immediately ends the U.S.'s exploitative economic relations and military dominance around the world, and views the newly liberated territory as a base area for revolution worldwide-is worth making. And only a society committed to that principle and outlook can stay on the road to an emancipated world.
