Major theoretical selections from past 4strugglemags
In addition to the pieces we reprinted in the physical magazine, Jaan listed to some of the longer feature articles we’ve published over the years. They are listed (and linked) below.
4sm has included entire essays and/or booklets, in some issues, that are definitely worth checking out or checking out again. If you are a new or more long time activist or a conscious prisoner or anyone seeking more insight into revolutionary thinking, then these selections might really be of interest to you.
- A Basic Introduction to Dialectical and Historical Materialism by Jaan Laaman (Issue 11, p. 38-51): Don’t let the title scare you. This is a short but detailed introduction to real revolutionary analysis. It takes you, step by step, into how to examine any problem to really understand it, so you can then make your own best plan for action.

- The Dragon and the Hydra by Russell Maroon Shoats (Issue 16, p. 33-42) Examines what type of revolutionary organizations are needed.
- Foundations of Pantherism by Shaka Zulu (Issue 17, p. 40-42): This is partly a response to the ‘Dragon and Hydra’ and also presents a modern Black Panther organization’s ideas.
- Call of the Lumpen by Michael Morin (Issue 14, p. 12-14): A look at the revolutionary potential of the lumpenproletariat in the U.S. today.
