Hoxhaism (pronounced Hoj-ha), is an economically far-left, culturally left, very authoritarian, anti-revisionist Marxist-Leninist ideology based off the ideas of Enver Hoxha, the former socialist leader of Albania. He believes in strict defense of the ideals and governance of Joseph Stalin, believing him to be one of the few non-revisionist leaders. He opposes other socialist leaders, such as Nikita Khrushchev, Mao Zedong (after the Sino-Albanian split started in 1972), Deng Xiaoping, and Josip Broz Tito, believing them to be revisionists and social imperialists. He also loves bunkers and likes telling revisionists to build them.



Enver Hoxha's views on other communist leaders and countries

Enver Hoxha was known for his staunch anti-revisionism and had a negative opinion of most other communist leaders who were active after the death of Joseph Stalin.


Enver Hoxha, the former leader of Albania, held a staunchly anti-Trotskyist stance throughout his political career. Hoxha was the head of state in Albania from 1944 until his death in 1985 and was known for his adherence to a particular form of Marxism-Leninism known as "Hoxhaism." Hoxha's views on Trotsky and Trotskyism were critical and opposed, considering Trotsky a counter-revolutionary and revisionist figure.

  1. Counter-Revolutionary and Revisionist: Hoxha regarded Trotsky as a counter-revolutionary and a revisionist who deviated from the principles of Marxism-Leninism. He saw Trotsky's ideas as a departure from the established teachings of Vladimir Lenin and a threat to the socialist project.
  2. Permanent Revolution: Hoxha rejected Trotsky's theory of the permanent revolution, which suggested that socialist revolutions could take place in economically backward countries, led by the proletariat with the support of the peasantry. Hoxha argued that this theory disregarded the necessary stages of development in building socialism and instead advocated for immediate revolution without considering the material conditions.
  3. Opposition to Soviet Leadership: Hoxha criticized Trotsky for his opposition to Joseph Stalin and his role in the factional struggles within the Soviet Union. He viewed Trotsky's criticisms of Stalin as an attempt to undermine Soviet leadership and create division within the international communist movement.
  4. Collaboration with Imperialism: Hoxha accused Trotsky and Trotskyism of collaborating with imperialism and acting as agents of foreign powers. He saw Trotsky's emphasis on the "permanent revolution" as an invitation for foreign intervention in socialist countries.
  5. Quotes: While specific quotes from Hoxha about Trotsky may be challenging to source, his writings and speeches consistently demonstrated his rejection of Trotskyism as a revisionist and anti-Marxist ideology. Hoxha's book "Imperialism and the Revolution" is one of his works where he discusses and criticizes Trotskyism within the context of global imperialism.

Post-Stalin Soviet Union

Enver Hoxha viewed the post-Stalin Soviet Union as being social imperialist, even to the point of being social fascist. Hoxha condemned the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia and pulled Albania out of it soon after in what is known as the Albanian-Soviet split. Following this, they sided with China for a short period. He wrote an article describing this very subject known as "The Demagogy of the Soviet Revisionists Cannot Conceal Their Traitorous Countenance."

Castroist Cuba

Hoxha initially had a positive view of Castro and praised his revolutionary leadership, their relationship deteriorated over ideological differences. Hoxha accused Castro of deviating from true Marxism-Leninism and adopting revisionist tendencies.

Hoxha considered Castro's approach to socialism as revisionist because he believed that Castro had abandoned the principles of class struggle, proletarian dictatorship, and revolutionary internationalism. Hoxha accused Castro of aligning with revisionist forces and adopting a pragmatic approach that compromised socialist principles. He believed that Castro's policies in Cuba, such as the introduction of market-oriented reforms and cooperation with capitalist countries, were betrayals of the revolutionary cause.

Hoxha's criticisms of Castro's alleged revisionism extended to his views on international relations. Hoxha accused Castro of engaging in diplomatic alliances with capitalist and imperialist nations, compromising the principles of anti-imperialism and proletarian internationalism.

Tito's Yugoslavia

Enver Hoxha had a highly critical view of Josip Broz Tito and his regime in Yugoslavia. Hoxha saw Tito's Yugoslavia as a revisionist and anti-Marxist state, deviating from the principles of socialism and Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy.

Hoxha accused Tito and the Yugoslav leadership of pursuing a path of "national communism" and "self-management" that he considered to be a betrayal of proletarian internationalism and class struggle. Hoxha believed that Tito's Yugoslavia had abandoned the principles of a centralized planned economy, proletarian dictatorship, and collective ownership of the means of production. He argued that Tito's regime pursued a form of state capitalism and allowed elements of bourgeois ideology to infiltrate Yugoslav society.

Hoxha also criticized Tito's policies on nationalities and self-determination. He accused Tito of promoting a form of "bourgeois nationalism" and fostering ethnic divisions within Yugoslavia. Hoxha argued that Tito's emphasis on the principle of "brotherhood and unity" was a facade to mask the suppression of nationalities and the dominance of the Serbian bourgeoisie within the Yugoslav federation.

Furthermore, Hoxha accused Tito of aligning with the imperialist powers and pursuing a policy of non-alignment that he considered to be a capitulation to imperialism. Hoxha argued that Tito's pursuit of non-alignment and his establishment of the Non-Aligned Movement undermined the unity of the socialist camp and weakened the struggle against imperialism.

People's Republic of China

After siding with China in the Sino-Soviet and Albanian-Soviet splits, Hoxha had claimed by the '70s that the Nixon-friendly and later Dengist P.R.C. were revisionist hypocrites who had a class-collaborationist, bourgeois-democratic revolution, therefore, not a proletarian, socialist revolution. Hoxha talked about the P.R.C. in his book "Imperialism and the Revolution," a book considered to be one of the most important readings for a Hoxhaist or an individual interested in or studying socialist Albania and president Hoxha.


Enver Hoxha initially had a positive view of Vietnam and its struggle for independence from colonial rule. However, over time, Hoxha's relationship with Vietnam deteriorated due to ideological differences and geopolitical conflicts. An overview of their changing relationship.

  1. Support for Vietnam's Struggle: Hoxha initially supported Vietnam's struggle for independence from French colonial rule. He admired the Vietnamese people's resilience and saw their fight against imperialism as a revolutionary cause aligned with his own anti-imperialist stance.
  2. Diverging Paths: The relationship between Hoxha and Vietnam started to deteriorate in the 1960s. Hoxha criticized what he perceived as Vietnam's increasing alignment with revisionist and capitalist powers. He accused Vietnam of abandoning revolutionary principles and pursuing a policy of "peaceful coexistence" with imperialist states.
  3. Geopolitical Conflicts: The split between China and the Soviet Union, known as the Sino-Soviet split, played a significant role in the deterioration of Hoxha's view on Vietnam. Hoxha aligned himself with China and saw Vietnam's closer ties with the Soviet Union as a betrayal of revolutionary principles.
  4. Ideological Differences: Hoxha accused Vietnam of adopting revisionist policies and deviating from true Marxism-Leninism. He criticized Vietnam's gradual shift toward a market-oriented economy and its willingness to cooperate with capitalist countries.
  5. Conflicts in the International Communist Movement: The ideological differences between Hoxha and Vietnam led to a broader split within the international communist movement. Hoxha aligned himself with China and saw Vietnam as part of the "revisionist" camp aligned with the Soviet Union.

Ceaușescu's Romania

Enver Hoxha initially had a positive view of Nicolae Ceaușescu's regime in Romania. However, their relationship later deteriorated due to ideological differences and geopolitical conflicts. An overview of their changing relationship.

  1. Early Relationship: Hoxha initially viewed Ceaușescu's rise to power as a positive development. He saw Ceaușescu as a leader who might resist Soviet domination and promote independent socialist policies. Hoxha praised Ceaușescu's early policies, including his defiance of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
  2. Diverging Paths: Hoxha's relationship with Ceaușescu started to deteriorate in the 1970s. Hoxha accused Ceaușescu of moving towards revisionism and deviating from true Marxism-Leninism. Hoxha criticized Ceaușescu's economic policies, which he believed led to Romania's increasing dependence on foreign loans and imports, compromising its socialist independence.
  3. Geopolitical Conflicts: The split between China and the Soviet Union played a significant role in the deterioration of Hoxha's view on Ceaușescu's Romania. Hoxha aligned himself with China and saw Ceaușescu's Romania as drifting closer to the Soviet Union, whom he considered revisionist.
  4. Ideological Differences: Hoxha accused Ceaușescu of pursuing a nationalist and opportunist foreign policy that undermined the principles of proletarian internationalism. Hoxha criticized Ceaușescu for fostering relations with imperialist powers, including Western countries, and for pursuing a policy of "autarchic socialism" that isolated Romania from the socialist camp.
  5. Breakdown of Relations: The relationship between Hoxha and Ceaușescu eventually deteriorated to the point of open hostility. Hoxha condemned Ceaușescu's regime as revisionist and capitalist, accusing him of betraying the socialist cause.



How to Draw

Flag of Hoxhaism

The flag of Hoxhaism is based of the flag of the Communist Party of Germany/Marxists-Leninists (KPDML) which was a marxist-leninist, anti-revisionist and (at the beginning) maoist political party in West Germany. KPDML was supportive of Albania (which was led by Enver Hoxha) during the Sino-Albanian split of the 70's, after the KPDML was dissolved the flag of the party was adopted by the Stalinist-Hoxhaist World Movement from which the Polcompball community took the symbol from.

The Symbol of Hoxhaism is image of a Hammer-and-Sickle crossed with a rifle on the background of a yellow star.

  1. Draw a ball with eyes and fill it red.
  2. On the ball draw one big yellow star.
  3. On the star draw the image of a hammer and a sickle crossed with a rifle.

And you should be done.
