  Resolutions on writing in context
MIM introduced the world to the term "gender aristocracy" to include those people who may not even be bourgeoisie but who benefit from the current patriarchal setup in particular.
Contrary to that line, MIM holds that language is male-dominated by exclusion--just as "there are no famous wimmin writers in history" is a problem of exclusion either in the real world or in the world of dominant opinion.
MIM does not want to say all wimmin are hos; even though, sex and money are completely intertwined right now under capitalism and semi-feudalism, so we said all sex is rape.

MIM (before it was called MIM) and the RCP broke over questions relating to El Salvador and the role of the FMLN, and other questions.
MIM places emphasis on struggling against revisionism and Trotskyism, which MIM believes are exacerbated by the "parasitic" conditions in the United States and other imperialist countries.
MIM believes that RCP is "crypto-Trotskyist." MIM has disinguished itself from the RCP by "actively oppos[ing] discrimination against gays since before its foundation" (http://www.etext.org/Politics/MIM/gender/demographics2004.html (http://www.etext.org/Politics/MIM/gender/demographics2004.html)).

 cars - Maoist Internationalist Movement
MIM differentiates itself from other parties in the First World with their line on the labor aristocracy.
MIM sees the principal contradiction to be that between imperialism and the oppressed nations and upholds the right to self-determination for oppressed nations.
MIM considers most, if not all White proletarians in the U.S. to be members of a labor aristocracy, meaning that they benefit so much from the system of Imperialism that they are baught off, thus cultivating no revolutionary potential.

 Argentina: the mystification of the 'piquetero' movement | International Communist Current
Argentina: the mystification of the 'piquetero' movement
This task of deception, falsifying events, and preventing the proletariat from drawing the real lessons of this movement and thus arming themselves against the traps of the class enemy, which is aided by the invaluable contribution of the semi-anarchist group the GCI[1] with its pseudo-Marxist language, is clearly denounced by the comrades of the NCI.
These few examples show that the unemployed movements which have occupied the mass media, nationally and internationally, and which have led the radicalised petty-bourgeoisie to imagine that they are seeing the beginning of “a revolution”, the existence of “workers's councils” etc, are a perfect swindle.

 BBC NEWS | World | South Asia | Who are Nepal's Maoist rebels?
The Maoists say that the reason they have so much support is because most of their supporters have traditionally been treated as second-class citizens or worse.
The first Maoist attack is believed to have taken place in 1996, when six government and police outposts were attacked simultaneously in mid-western Nepal.
The Maoists may not yet have the strength to win their "People's War" but they are too strong to lose it.

MIM would say in response that the worst authority is the authority that does not claim to be one: it is unaccountable.
To the extent that Zack negates the status quo and takes stands on individual issues, we at MIM say "excellent." To the extent that his solution has shown no promise in the world, we say that he has failed to take sides in a general ideological way.

Francois Vercammen from the Fourth International noted that the starting point of the discussion was our failure to build a mass international, but argued that it was wrong to give up this aspiration.

Amnesty International is concerned that the "blockade" will restrict the supply of food and essential medical supplies to civilian populations not only in Kathmandu but in other districts which rely on access to Kathmandu for the supply of these goods.

Amnesty International once again reminds the CPN (Maoist) that international humanitarian law prohibits means and methods of warfare which fail to distinguish between civilians and combatants.

 Declaration of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM)
The international impact of the Russian Revolution, coming especially as it did in the course of the world conjuncture marked by the First World War and the upsurge of revolutionary activity that accompanied it, was immense.
Because the Seventh Congress of the Comintern has had such a deep influence on the history of the international movement it is necessary to make a sober and scientific evaluation of the Report of the Congress in the light of the existing historical conditions at the time.
The desire to spread the revolutionary movement of the 1960s to the proletariat and to merge with the workers, inspired to no small degree by the experience of the revolutionary youth in the Cultural Revolution, was a powerful and correct revolutionary sentiment which, however, became stifled and distorted under the influence of economism.

 Some Notes on Maoists: Cambridge Leftists Could Learn a Thing or Two About Political Agitation
(I'm sure the Maoists saw the broken escalator as a typical failure of the imposed socio-industrial order.) I escaped upwards into Harvard Square, which is hardly a haven for the oppressor classes.
Last August, the whole of the Maoist infrastructure in Cambridge threw its support behind Richard J. Picariello, a former bomb-thrower and radical, who was arrested for trespassing on MIT property.
The Maoists appear to assume that every law enforcement agent in the country has instant electronic access to a regularly updated list of everybody in the country who ever espoused left-wing political sentiments.

The traditional view of the Maoist political structure was that it was unitarian – the party and the state were one.
The international labour union movement should accept the ACFTU as it is, as a bureaucracy, but one whose function is to help workers.
It is my hope that the international trade union movement will call on the international community to include these basic rights as core labour rights and to press the Chinese government to live up to its own laws.

That content is not simply the demands of the movements, but the activation of the mass of union members as the leaders of the charge – those who in most cases have the greatest social and economic leverage in capitalist society.
Social movement unionism implies an active strategic orientation that uses the strongest of society's oppressed and exploited, generally organised workers, to mobilise those who are less able to sustain self-mobilisation: the poor, the unemployed, the casualised workers, the neighbourhood organisations.
century, 'the social movement' - the movement for the transformation of or in society - was customarily identified with the labour movement.

 Document of the Nepalese Revolution: international communist movement and its historical lessons   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
At a time when struggle is still needed in the international communist movement against the trend which, even today, represents, on the one hand; sectarian nationalism on the pretext of national characteristics, and, on the other, Trotskyism that undermines national characteristics on the pretext of internationalism, the significance of this is evident.
In the international communist movement, Mao defined the party as a unity of opposites, and not as a monolithic and homogenous unity, and he clarified the fact that two-line struggle inside the party is, in deed, always the motivating force for the party's life.
When the debate was going on in the international communist movement, and Khrushchev, the ring-leader of modern revisionism, along with imperialism was simultaneously defaming Stalin from a counter-revolutionary angle, it was but necessary to defend Stalin, emphasising his essentially correct and positive aspects.

The DSP devote considerable effort and expense to bringing delegates from a variety of leftist movements, particularly in the Asian region, partly to impress their own members, and partly in pursuit of their project of setting up some kind of international formation, in which they will be the central force.
The current crisis in the traditional labour movement is influenced a bit by this radicalisation, but it is also produced by a crisis of relevance internal to the labour movement.
I had been born into the labour movement, so to speak, and I was soaked in the lore and tradition of many past conflicts, being of Irish Catholic, labour movement background, where the involvement in Laborism went back three generations.

The reason that MIM Notes, the newspaper of the Maoist International Movement, is ridiculed by everybody who isn’t already a reader (aside from its association with Chairman Mao, who led to more starvation and suffering than almost anybody in history), is because of this inane and embarrassing language.
