Red Path is an independent, moderated, scholarly electronic journal founded in 2014. It attempts to analyse contemporary society from a critical Marxist perspective.

Red Path takes the view that proletarian ideology has been so degraded by social democracy and modern revisionism internationally and particularly in Russia by the Khrushchevites and by the Dengists in China, and western academia writings that much of what has passed for proletarian ideology and Marxist theory in the final analysis are nothing but distortions of the proletarian ideology, thought and practice. Since proletarian socialism can only be brought about through the dictatorship of the proletariat, rejects any analyses purporting to portray socialism as anything but a long period of class struggle under the dictatorship of the proletariat or that socialism can be achieved without revolution leading to the dictatorship of the proletariat through the smashing of the old state.

Furthermore, Red Path emphatically insists on the necessity of advance towards and building of socialism even though it is in one country.

Aims and scope

The aim of Red Path is to take part in the tremendous endeavours to raise high the banner and the lessons of the Paris commune, the Great October revolution, the Chinese revolution in 1949 and the Great proletarian cultural revolution that have charted the red path of proletarian revolution in the march towards communism. aims to encourage scholarly research and discussion around the political economy of contemporary world capitalism as a whole and its various components as advanced and backward societies. For this purpose, it regards debate around theory, methodology and as a consequence philosophy to be essential. Inevitably, contemporary political economy must also involve debate around the importance of historical events and so encourages contributions of historical analysis.

In short,'s aim is to publish theoretical work at various levels of abstraction from the most profound to that of analytical description in order to help provide the theory required for social liberation, which with the deepening crisis of the whole capitalist system, the failure of revisionists and the bankruptcy of social democracy and the rise of mass popular resistance is once more on the agenda.

Red Path project is a logical development of series of ongoing scholarly initiatives that began in 2006, to commemorate three historic milestones in the history of the International Communist Movement, in 2007 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Great October revolution and in 2009 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Chinese revolution.

At first, the concept of was conceived as a platform to publish the documents of such initiatives, However, it soon became apparent that the scope of must be defined beyond but inclusive of such initiatives, firmly focusing on theoretical and scholarly work and research on a wider variety issues and topics centring and relating to the dictatorship of the proletariat. In its present, stage of development the has adopted particular topics for research and publication. Quite logically these will be reviewed and expanded when necessary in time, as our project unfolds.
