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, intellectual and manual labor workers.

The bourgeoisie are the affluent upper classes who exploit our labor while producing, for the most part, little real social value themselves. The upper class capitalists are essentially money managers and investors who use their inherited wealth to make even more money and to control the government (to preserve their racket). Their upper middle class lackeys are the multi-millionaire and even billionaire CEOs and business executives who assist with management and technical expertise in the service of the capitalist masters. In the U.S. the true old money capitalist ruling class families are probably no more than about .01% of the population, while their petty bourgeois disciples represent approximately 5% of the population.

Prole Center uses a Marxist-Leninist framework for analyzing world events.

    Your responsiveness to my suggestions is much appreciated.

  7. Chris says:

    “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.

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. Prole Center says:

    That’s very kind. Thank you!

  11. beetleypete says:

    Great stuff, glad to have found you, and will be following. Regards, Pete.

  12. Eddy Winko says:

    Great site, looking forward to reading more.

  13. beetleypete says:

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

  14. Prole Center says:

    Okay, I’ll enable comments again at least for a while and see how it goes. I just got tired of moderating comments and weeding out spam.

    Hello Prole Center!!!

    I wanted to let you know that I am creating something new. I have been working on my own online school. I like the idea of a school of philosophy and religion, but I want it to be open to anyone who would like to teach a class. I am hoping that I can get it up and running by January or May at the latest. I am attaching the website address below for you all to look at. Please let me know if you would like to teach an online class on any subject that is near and dear to your heart.

    I like your blog and most of it’s message, but I do hesitate a bit since communism didn’t work in Russia. I seriously doubt it would work in America. But the issues are real and they must be addressed in a intelligent though careful manner. I’ve done quite a bit of research in this area, I’m not an expert to any degree but see it’s possible the same things that Russia went through could take place in the States. What I have found living in Russia has given me the opportunity to talk to many people who claim that they were never Communist and many of those same people dislike socialism. So with that said I hope that you are open to discourse that would help others see the fallacy surrounding this subject.

  22. Prole Center says:

    The question is WHY did communism not work (actually, there are still communist countries surviving against all odds)? Was it preordained? An enormous propaganda effort has convinced many people throughout the world that it was doomed to failure. The truth is that it – the USSR – was defeated by a much more powerful and ruthless enemy. Also, according to polls I’ve seen, there are still millions of Russians and former Soviet citizens who regret the Soviet Union’s demise.

    Please stick around and keep an open mind. In the meantime, why not take a look at the following brief articles?



  23. Arrby says:

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, I don’t get enough attention to have that problem (of too many comments and too much spam). But I’m very active online (and picked up an upvote, on a comment on Off Guardian, from someone connected to this site, which brought me here for a look) and have lots of experience with censorship and the shutting down of democracy by those who would have us believe that they are champions of democracy. I was quite disappointed when leftie Rick Salutin agreed with the Toronto Star’s decision to kill commenting altogether. I haven’t given up on Rick, but the position that Rick took here, in my view, was a mistake. Rick may have been trying to hard to please his new rightwing boss. He was fired from the Globe and Mail after (because of?) he wrote an article about Stephen Harper which asked the totally appropriate question (rhetorically or not), ‘Is Stephen Harper a Straussian?’ (Leo Strauss was one of the founders – main one, I believe – of neoconservatism.) I don’t think that the Globe has any remaining token lefties writing for it. The Star has a few, namely Salutin and Walkom (and I’m not sure of some others). But otherwise, It’s awful. In some ways, it’s like our NDP and Liberal Parties (and the Democratic Party in the US), feigning support for the 99% in the class war but being entirely establishment and anti-people.

    It’s a no-win situation I guess. Allow messy, and sometimes disruptive, democracy or go against it, shutting down debate and discussion and some viewpoints, while claiming to champion it.

  24. Arrby says:

    The Communist Party is in opposition in Russia. Apparently, It’s very powerful and has a lot of support nationally. The problem I have with it, is that it seems to be something that the worst kind of proles, those who worship Stalin, gravitate to. You are not automatically righteous just because you are working (in a meaningful sense) class or are of the iconic 99%.

  25. Prole Center says:

    Arrby, I don’t worship Stalin, but I think he was a great leader. I’m sure he made mistakes and that some innocent people suffered during those turbulent times, but I don’t buy in to the false Western propaganda that he was a monster. He did a pretty good job given the immense challenges that he faced. He continues to be demonized by the West because he could not be bribed, threatened or co-opted.

  26. Arrby says:

    I’ve read enough to know that Stalin was a monster responsible for the deaths of millions. And my reading is on the Left. And I’m not talking about the dead Left (joining the dead Liberal class).

  27. Prole Center says:

    And I am telling you that Stalin was a hero. You are reading bullshit lies.

  28. George Case says:

    Just out of curiosity – and not to provoke – but why uphold the Soviet model of socialism as an ideal? Even if it’s been as unjustly maligned as you say, isn’t it still kind of unlikely to be applied effectively in the 21st century? What about newer forms of left politics, like the environmental progressivism of someone like Naomi Klein? I’m not a fan of hers, but I’d think her kind of movement probably has more supporters today than old-school Marxist-Leninism. Anyway, write on.

  29. Prole Center says:

    I believe the Soviet model is genuine socialism, and it is what allows us to keep it; at least it gives us a fighting chance. There are anarchists and social democrats who seem to admire and romanticize all the revolutions that fail. Figures like Bernie Sanders uphold Scandinavia as a model, but these countries are still imperialist and the wealth they share with their native population comes from the exploitation and plunder of the third world. The Soviet slogan was always, “Workers of All Countries, Unite!” That kinda sums it up.

    Also, to explain the difference between true Marxism and a false or heavily watered-down type of bourgeois socialism, I would suggest you read the interview that the famous author H.G. Wells conducted with Joseph Stalin:

    I like your reviews of the films, the website IMDb. Of course, your attempt to expose art scammers and professional propagandists like Steven Spielberg is similar to Don Quixote’s battle with windmills, but the greater the cost to your deeds. I think that if humanity does not finally degrade, then in 10-20 years the name of Spielberg will be worth less than the name of Ed Wood. I think it is very important that on the main Western movie site there is an honest defender of the USSR and a denouncer of total capitalist propaganda.
