What is the Return to the Source?

“Always bear in mind that people are not fighting for ideas, for the things in anyone’s head. They are fighting to win material benefits, to live better and in peace, to see their lives go forward, to guarantee the future of their children”

“So the return to the source is of no historical importance unless it brings not only real involvement in the struggle for independence, but also complete and absolute identification with the hopes of the masses of people, who contest not only the foreign culture but also foreign domination as a whole. Otherwise the return to the source is nothing more than an attempt to find short-term benefits – knowingly or unknowingly, a kind of political opportunism.”

– Amilcar Cabral


Return to the Source is a Marxist-Leninist, anti-imperialist journal on the web offering insight into the revolutionary movements of today and the history of people’s struggles in the past. We hope to approach the most burning questions of the revolutionary movements in the 21st century with dialectical materialism as a starting point. Our aim is to positively contribute to efforts in building a new communist party in the United States.

  1. Long Live Revolution! Long Live International struggle for Marxism-Leninism!

  2. thank you for all the good information. how about the socialists in south america—venezuela, bolivia, ecuador and nicaragua?

  3. Welcome back. I’m excited to hear about the forthcoming discussion on Democratic Kampuchea and related issues.

  4. If you don’t mind, I would like to ask you a few questions as I’m relatively new to Marxism and I really like your writings:
    1. How are China and Russia not imperialist? I might be wrong about your stance on Russia, but I’m quite sure that you support China.
    2. What is your overall view of the Cultural Revolution?
    3. What is your opinion on urban guerrilla warfare and groups like the Red Army Faction and the Red Brigades?
    4. What discussion about Democratic Kampuchea is Greg Butterfield talking about? I’m asking this only because the subject interests me a lot.

  5. The shock collar required the coach to select the level of correction by inserting an intensity plug into
    the collar (before putting the collar on the dog for training, once the shock
    collar was on the dog they might not change the
    depth stage). In contrast, fashionable shock collars have an enormous variety of levels.

  6. return to the source must be about the afrikan ways of doing things before and after colonialisation. the unity of purpose and conflicts that were necessary at best.
