The Autonomist Antifa movement (MP3), or anti–fascism, opposes the domination of subaltern (MP3) or marginalized races, ethnicities, nationalities, castes, and tribes. Autonomism (MP3) is anti–authoritarian communism. The Antifa Luxemburgist Communist Collective™ (MP3; ALCC™) or Antifa Luxemburgism™ (MP3), as a unifying agent of left regroupment, remains nonviolent and nonconfrontational. Its practices are protective and defensive, never aggressive and offensive. When events wannant, activists may, as an illustration, escourt intended victims to safe areas. Regarding left refoundation, ALCC’s primary critical frameworks are Marxism–Luxemburgism (MP3) and Bhaskarian critical realism (MP3). Follow ALCC on Facebook and dialogue with us on our NationStates forum.
The major sources of ALCC, a social–and–economic development (SED) project, are: The proto–left communist Rosa Luxemburg (MP3; 1871–1919) as a rightful successor to Karl Marx (MP3; 1818–1883) and Friedrich Engels (MP3; 1820–1895), the libertarian Marxist Professor Roy Bhaskar (MP3; 1944–2014) who founded British critical realism, and the multi–tendency socialism from below. Moreover, supplementary approaches include: international socialism from neo–Trotskyist (MP3) Tony Cliff (1917–2000), Titoism (MP3) from Maršal J̌osip Broz Tito (Serbo–Croatian Cyrillic, Маршал Јосип Броз Тито [MP3], 1892–1980), workers’ self–directed coöperative enterprises from Professor Richard D. Wolff (born 1942), and De Leonism (MP3) from Daniel De Leon (MP3; 1852–1914).
The above nine perspectives, from Antifa to De Leonism, have been integrated into The Institute for Dialectical metaRealism™ (MP3) or IDmR™ and The Collective to Fight Neurelitism™ (MP3) or CFN™. Inspired by the revolutionary and transformative legacy of Red Rosa (German/Deutsch, rote Rosa [MP3]) , ALCC promotes democratic communism while avoiding partisan politics. ALCC is a member of: rs21: revolutionary socialism in the 21ˢᵗ century (see also their Facebook page), the International Organization for a Participatory Society, the United Socialist Front, the Modern International Socialist Association, the International Association for Critical Realism, the Union for Radical Political Economics, Antifascist Action (Google+ Edition), F!ght✊Fasc!sm, and others.
Arguably, fascism is a form of liberation but altogether the wrong kind. Many fascists, oddly enough, apparently wish to liberate the oppressor from the oppressed. This pseudo–deliverance is unequivocally opposed by ALCC. Some fash crudely misappropriate the language and symbols of the Left, including populist references to revolution and the utilization of a fist clenched in solidarity. These confiscations, perhaps intended to hoodwink certain less informed people, may occasionally be successful. However, Antifa activists should persevere in an alertness to such deceptive activities and, when appropriate, directly and decisively challenge them. An indispensable facet of any effective praxis—which is far more important than one’s chosen leftist current—must be intellectual warfare.
Fascism and its cousins—nazism, alt–rightism, neo–confederalism, white identitarianism and nationalism, nativism, ôðalism or odalism (MP3, and MP4), thuleanism (MP3), xenophobia (MP3), the neo–folkish movement (German, die neo–völkisch Bewegungen; MP3), and an assemblage of ultra–right creeds—negate the unifying essence of humanity. Tolerating fascism and the like is unconscionable. Rather, an eradication of this virulent scourge of the Earth must become a universal moral responsibility. The multiple contradictions observed in fascistic ideologies should be dutifully acknowledged, established as ethically illegitimate, and then swiftly cast aside as untenable. ALCC is dedicated to the proposition that fascism can be thoroughly vanquished in the space of one or two generations.
ALCC accepts Rosa’s typology of spontaneity and organization. Spontaneous uprisings will be largely unplanned responses to continuing deteriorations in the capitalist world–system. They shall, quite likely, intensify over the coming months and years. Organized revolutionary activities, perhaps persisting for several centuries, will follow the collapse of capitalism. Communism, the completion of the dialectic, might then be established in two stages: first, a transnational state and, second, a localized global federation or administration. Yet, the political economy to come must be worked out by future generations. In the view of the collective’s founder—a communist nurtured in the New Left beginning in 1968—traditionalism is one of communism’s chief obstacles and, indeed, the last refuge of scoundrels.
