This is not intended to be a political website, but rather a historical resource. We all have our own political views in the present; the goal of the historian is to understand the political ideology and actions of others in the past. Whether one accepts the economic doctrine of the labor theory of value, the existence of distinct classes and the primacy of class struggle as the vehicle of social change, and the analytical framework of historical materialism as valid guides to action in the world today—or whether one views these principles of Marxism to be quaint relics of a secular religion from a bygone century—is of little importance. This site exists only to provide the documentation of the U.S. Marxist movement itself, nothing more than that.

The pull down menu will bring the user to documents for that year alone. Cleck on "Downloadable Documents" above to view all documents associated with each political tendency
