Anti-Revisionism is a far-left unity ideology that opposes any form of socialism it deems as revisionist, such as Democratic Socialism, Dengism, and Titoism.
Anti-revisionism is a political position within Marxist-Leninist theory which opposes the revisionist interpretation of Marxism. It emerged in the 1950s in response to the rise of revisionism in the Soviet Union, which was seen as a betrayal of true Marxism-Leninism.
The first major anti-revisionist movement was led by the Chinese Communist Party, which criticized the Soviet Union for rejecting the principles of proletarian internationalism and instead pursuing a policy of peaceful co-existence with the capitalist states. This movement was expressed by Mao Zedong, as he once famously said, "The rise to power of revisionism means the rise to power of the bourgeoisie."
In Albania, anti-revisionism was embraced as a state ideology by the Communist Party of Albania under the leadership of Enver Hoxha. This was in part a response to the Sino-Soviet split, which had left Albania as the sole remaining Marxist-Leninist state in Eastern Europe. Hoxha's version of anti-revisionism was heavily influenced by Maoism, and it became a major part of Albanian political culture. After the fall of the Communist regime in 1991, anti-revisionism largely disappeared from Albanian politics.
In the 1960s, the anti-revisionist movement spread to other nations, such as Cuba and North Korea, where it became an important part of the state ideology. During this period, the movement was strongly associated with the Maoist strain of Marxism-Leninism.
In the 1970s, the anti-revisionist movement was weakened by the rise of détente between the Soviet Union and the West, and the decline of Maoism worldwide. However, the movement was revived in the 1980s by the emergence of the New Communist Movement in the United States, which embraced anti-revisionism as a way to differentiate itself from the Soviet-aligned Communist Parties.
Today, anti-revisionism remains an important part of Marxist-Leninist theory and is embraced by a variety of left-wing political organizations, from Trotskyist parties to Maoist guerrilla groups.
Anti-revisionism is based on the belief that Marxism-Leninism should be interpreted according to the original principles set out by Marx and Lenin, and that any deviation from these principles is a form of "revisionism" which betrays the true spirit of Marxism-Leninism.
In particular, anti-revisionists reject the idea that socialism can be achieved through peaceful means, and instead argue that revolution is necessary to overthrow the existing capitalist system. They also oppose the idea of class collaboration, and argue that the working class must lead the struggle for socialism.
Anti-revisionists argue that the working class must maintain its independence from bourgeois influences, and that the Communist Party must remain independent from state and capitalist interests.

- Reading theory
Behavior and Personality
Anti-Revisionism is very faithful to ideology and will fight anyone who he thinks is slightly revisionist. He loves long walks on the beach, if the beach is full of filthy capitalist traitors and he has a machine gun. He has a very weird father-son-son-father dynamic with Hoxhaism.
