This is an archive of the former website of the Maoist Internationalist Movement, which was run by the now defunct Maoist Internationalist Party - Amerika. The MIM now consists of many independent cells, many of which have their own indendendent organs both online and off. MIM(Prisons) serves these documents as a service to and reference for the anti-imperialist movement worldwide.
Three Main Points
MIM differs from other communist parties on three main questions:
- MIM holds that after the proletariat seizes power in socialist
revolution, the potential exists for capitalist restoration under the
leadership of a new bourgeoisie within the communist party itself. In
the case of the USSR, the bourgeoisie seized power after the death of Stalin in 1953; in China, it was after Mao's
death and the overthrow of the "Gang of Four" in 1976.
- MIM upholds the Chinese Cultural
Revolution as the farthest advance of communism in humyn
- As Marx, Engels and Lenin formulated and MIM has reiterated through
materialist analysis, imperialism extracts super-profits from the Third
World and in part uses this wealth to buy off whole populations of
oppressor nation so-called workers. These so-called workers bought off by
imperialism form a new petty-bourgeoisie called the labor aristocracy.
These classes are not the principal vehicles to advance Maoism within
those countries because their standards of living depend on imperialism.
At this time, imperialist super-profits create this situation in
Canada, Quebec, the United $tates, England, France, Belgium, Germany,
Japan, Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Israel, Sweden and
Denmark. (See MIM Theory #1 on the White-Working Class
and MIM Theory #10 on the Labor Aristocracy and Imperialism and its Class Structure in 1997)(Artistic rendition of MIM's third cardinal principle)
MIM accepts people as members who agree on these basic principles and
accept democratic centralism, the system of
majority rule, on other questions of party line.
"The theory of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin is universally
applicable. We should regard it not as dogma, but as a guide to
action. Studying it is not merely a matter of learning terms and phrases,
but of learning Marxism-Leninism as the science of revolution." --Mao
Zedong, Selected Works, Vol. II. p. 208.
At its 1995 Party Congress, MIM passed a political
program outlining what we want and what we believe.
