About

The Proletarian Center for Research, Education and Culture (Prole Center) seeks to provide political education and to spread class consciousness among the working class – also known as proletarians. We are the vast majority of the U.S. and the world. We are both blue-collar and white-collar workers; intellectual workers and manual labor workers. The bourgeoisie are the affluent middle and upper classes who exploit our labor while producing little or no real wealth themselves. The upper class capitalists are little more than money managers and investors who use their inherited wealth to make even more money; their middle class lackeys generally make six-figure salaries to assist with planning and management; basically they should be seen as overseers in the service of the capitalist masters. In the U.S. the capitalists are the infamous 1%, but their petty bourgeois disciples represent approximately 15 – 20% of the population.

This site will provide you with the knowledge and political tools necessary to fight back and eventually win a better world for ourselves and our children. There are several different components of the site. They are: Class War Chronicle, Worker Council, Consumer Council, Political Activism, Blast from the Past, and Real Heroes.

Class War Chronicle

This represents the bulk of the site. The Class War Chronicle will feature blogs that deal with Leftist (socialist or communist) political theory. These entries will also include news and commentary on current events and historical lessons. The main purpose is to act as an information clearinghouse for Leftist news and opinion.

Worker Council

This part of the blog will deal with the labor movement. If there is something important happening in the struggle for worker rights, you will likely find it here.

Consumer Council

The consumer council will release periodic consumer tips for saving money, avoiding toxic products, consumer empowerment through do-it-yourself projects, and finally, in order to starve the capitalists, as much as possible, of their profits at our expense; in other words, a general consumer boycott of sorts.

Political Activism

From time to time we will suggest a variety of political tactics that might contribute to dismantling the current system and the building of a better one based on human values.

Blast from the Past

This section contains writings from historical figures – philosophical and practical knowledge from the past still relevant today.

Real Heroes

The celebrities, businessmen, statesmen and professional athletes adored by the dominant bourgeois society do not deserve our admiration. This part of the blog will highlight proletarian, peasant and progressive heroes from past and present that we can look up to – not to fetishize or worship as the bourgeoisie do, but rather to learn from and emulate.

    “The Militant” is the paper of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP). They were THE Trotskyist party in the United States and the unofficial (because of Voorhis Act) Amercian party of the Fourth International. Their forerunner, the Communist League of America (CLA) led the famous 1934 Minneapolis Teamster strikes (of which the sidebar photos on this site are from). James P. Cannon is probably the most famous American Trotskyist and is considered the founder of American Trotskyism. The SWP has since degenerated into reformism and are no longer a revolutionary party.

    Hi,

    Your site is great! I would like to see whether you’d be open for guest contributions. I am looking to write about something related to workforce organization and thought that the topics I had in mind may go well with your blog.

    I was thinking about the following subjects
    1.Ways on knowing your rights as an employee
    2.Tips on becoming a good leader

    What do you think about these? If you’re interested, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you – or if you have another topic you’d like to see covered, I am more than happy to create a custom article of your choice.

    *** Our articles are custom written by our writers for your blog and are absolutely FREE. ***

    Thanks and I look forward to your response.

    Dana B.

  6. Thank you so much for visiting my blog because it brought me to this blog! You provide so many great articles around wordpress that most people would never find. I also appreciate the activist tips you offer and the Consumer Council is so useful. It is amazing that you are able to provide so many solid suggestions to improve people’s health and finances. The fact that you organize them into certain categories gives them added significance and puts them into context. You are doing great work and I looking forward to going through your past posts and seeing future ones.

    How about ‘allowing’ comments? i often feel the desire to add something to the debate, but cannot. Go on, change your minds…
