What's in a name?

By J L Samboma

It is a phenomenon of enduring wonderment to me that to be called a Marxist these days is almost the equivalent of someone saying you're a wife-beater; whereas to be called a communist - which is but the same thing - is to be reserved the same esteem as befits a pederast.

On America's Wars 

An occasional series on The Struggle, by J L Samboma 

The wars and conflicts America has initiated and surreptitiously started in recent years - not to mention those of yonder years - never fail to invoke in my mind one of my favourite quotes from Marx, the validity of which endures to this very day. He was not writing eternal truths or dogma, as he himself said.  He was making profound observations.

On Revolution

An occasional series on Marxism, by J L Samboma

A revolution without violence? Yeah, right! Dream on, brother. Whether you want it or not, the po-lice are gonna jump on your back. How about going on a turkey shoot, and you be the bird? Go read some Malcolm. Listening to him might be better. Well, I never!

The Beast will come for you too

By J L Samboma

There are many Africans, both at home and abroad, who have internalised the divide-and-conquer propaganda that Libya is not Africa, that Libyans are not Africans. If that is the case, then Americans of European, African and other extraction are not Americans.

On Revisionism

An occasional series on Marxist theory, by J L Samboma

Marx was not writing dogma or eternal truths. He was a writing a blueprint to change the world. I sometimes perceive the materialist conception of history, which he propounded with his good friend Fred Engels, as a lens through which to observe the world – and the lens still works after all these years. On this point Marx himself wrote:

War on Libya leaves Africa at a crossroads

By J L Samboma

The Horn of Africa is today within the stranglehold of drought and famine. Libya, a significant player in the so-called African Union under any reckoning, is currently under sustained imperialist assault by the Western powers, a mass-murdering adventure led by the first black president of the United States of America.

Challenge to Playthell Benjamin: Defend Obama’s war on Libya and Africa

By J L Samboma

As the first African-American leader of the Land of the Free lays waste to the African nation of Libya in league with co-imperialists from the rest of the West, international corporate media from ABC to the BBC are falling over each other to defend the indefensible with their skewed coverage.  A few pseudo-leftist intellectuals are also crawling from under their sinecures to join the massed ranks of the media mis-informers.

War on Libya headlines African Liberation Day in London

A report on an all-African day, by J L Samboma

African Liberation Day (ALD) was commemorated in London Saturday 28 May at North London’s Chestnut Community Centre by progressive African organisations and well-wishers.  The occasion was observed at the precise moment imperialist dogs of war are softening up international opinion for their impending deployment of “bunk-buster” bombs and killer-drones in their bloody onslaught against the people of Libya and Africa.

Olu Gordon, the philosopher-king Sierra Leone and Africa never had

A Revolutionary Life, by J L Samboma

A giant has fallen with the death of Olu Gordon.  He wore many hats in his 53 years, but above all he was a revolutionary socialist, a Romeo in love with the amorphous mass of the African dispossessed.  A former University lecturer, he was a Pan-Africanist, a journalist and a philosopher.  He could not take part in social revolution and he refused to rustle one up.  But he made sure his life was a study in personal revolution -- one over which he had undisputed command.
