RSU Theory: Dialectical Materialism
The Utah Valley University Revolutionary Student Union is a non-tendency revolutionary group. According to them:
We do not believe our current systems of government, economy, and society are working for us. Moreover, we don’t believe that changes to the system with fix the problem. These systems are the problem. We need to replace these systems with new systems of politics, economics, and society. Hence, we are revolutionary.
However, we allow any revolutionary tendency. You can believe in violence or peaceful revolution. You can be a Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, Democratic Socialist, Social Democrat, Anarchist, Syndicalist, Mutualist, or any other ideology that doesn’t support our system of corporate capitalism.
You can check out their hompage at http://uvursu.blogspot.com/ and follow them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/uvursu . They also have an excellent Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/UVURSU .
Part of their purpose is to have talks about various aspects of history and political theory. The one I have posted below is frankly one of the best introductions to dialectical materialist thought that I have heard in sometime. For something so central to revolutionary Marxist thought, it often gets lost in translation to most people who do not have academic backgrounds in philosophy, so kudos to the RSU for putting this together.
