What is Material Necessity?

Material Necessity is an international grouping of communists interested in the dissemination of revolutionary analyses of the present state of things. The core function of this organization is the centralization of all works of the Communist Left and its predecessors. In adherence to Marxist doctrine, organisations like ours “disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” We do not endeavor to hide behind click-hungry thumbnails: we are honest about our intentions.

On this archive you will find materials written by militants of the Communist Left, as well as members of organisations. These will adhere to the specific positions of the Communist Left, and potentially its theoretical immediates. A new era necessitates new analysis. The capitalism of ascendancy in which the proletarian hordes would inhabit factories, blackened by soot, is long gone. Class antagonisms are as real as ever, and anyone with a keen eye can find them in the malaise of the office cubicle as well as on the shop floor.

The proletariat have nothing to lose but our chains. We have a world to win.
