Our Mother, West Papua
I no longer walk her beautiful
landscape, I am a prisoner
in my own homeland, stripped
off my heritage, my culture.
I stand naked before my
tormentors, crying to the
deaf world, the world blind
to our just course, how we
long to rise the morning
star, Merdeka Papua our dear
mother is war-torn, ploughed
with mass graves and shallow
graves, I have buried my
mother’s sons and daughters.
While our fathers and sons
bury their heads, turn into
shadows who lay flat on the
ground that forever bleeds, for
our mother west papua is raped
every day by jellyfish settlers from
the lands of Indonesia, backed by
the powers that be and condone
by our silence as a power of beings.

(Note: West Papua is a forced colony of Indonesia, where a plebiscite was carried out under the “supervision” of UNO to decide if this mineral rich nation will continue to be under the colonial power Indonesia or will be a free nation. In a charismatic poll, less than 1% of the population exercised their right to vote and the result was in the favour of occupying country!
Fight is continuing by the rightful owners of this part of the Earth, even against the severe repression by the imperialist powers!
Only Socialism will ensure a true Right to Secede and democratic rights of the peoples!)

Social democracy is part of bourgeois conspiracy to derail the working class movement for a scientific socialism. It works to ‘curtail’ power of the bourgeois class, tax it more and ensure no tax evasion, no waiving off the loans to give “concessions” to the working class. This essentially means a reform in distribution system and keep the production relation intact. Keep the means of production in hands of the capitalist class, keep the wage slavery intact, do not touch the fort of Private Property! The last theory is so dear to the middle class sycophants, as it keeps their ‘freedom of thought’ intact!!!
Social Democracy advocates that the management of production and services is beyond the workers capabilities, hence they must sell their labour power and get back a decent wage and remain satisfied!
Their treachery or the real blood stained face is visible during economic crisis, what we saw as examples in Greece and other parts of EU, UK, US and even in undeveloped nations, where the ruling class is not in “condition” to share the plunder back to the working class, as they are forced to share with the MNCs, FDIs, foreign monopoly capitalists. The working class, despite its heroic struggle against its class enemy remains divided and is unable to bargain a better contract, a better living standard.
Even during war, they support their governments as part of lobby of the arm dealers, big oil oligarchs, financiers. Bernie supports US attack on Syria!!!
In India, those all parties, who support “Socialism”, are nothing but power hunger parasites; like SP, BSP, AAP, RJD, DMK, AIADMK, BJD etc. Now even Lefts, namely, CPI, CPM, CPI(ML) and their various allies are nothing but examples of Social Democrats! They objectively create social base for fascism.
However, the question raised by Dimitrov is very pertinent, is on line of class politics, is to promote class unity & struggle! I am for working with the cadre of these social democratic parties, leaving their leaders alone, including even the middle level, as they are degenerated lots and have lost all fire to work for the exploited, have become parasites, and are ‘natural’ allies of the right wing parties. We have 100s or even 1000s of CPM/CPI workers, who have joined TMC or even BJP!
However, depending on the situation, a different tactical line may be taken to strengthen the working class in its historical task!
National Front to resist fascism is necessary and these Social Democrats can be part of it but never take them for granted as permanent allies for a proletarian revolution, socialist revolution!

From C. Dimitrov

Dear Com. Stalin!

The enclosed draft outline of [my] speech shows how I see the essence of the speech regarding the 2nd point of the agenda of the congress. In addition, I would like to raise in our forthcoming conversation the following questions:

I. On Social Democracy [1]

1. Whether it is correct to refer to social democracy indiscriminately as social-fascism. By taking such a position, we have frequently blocked our way to social democratic workers. [2]

2. Whether it is correct to consider social democracy everywhere and at all times the main social base of the bourgeoisie. [3]

3. Whether it is correct to consider all leftist s[ocial] d[emocratic] groups as a major threat under any conditions. [4]

4. Whether it is correct to treat all the leading cadres of…

“Therefore we have to defend the legacy of the international communist movement during Lenin’s and, especially, during Stalin’s time. At the same time we must be fearlessly critical of it, so we discover what errors they made and so not make the same errors again. In my judgment – and I hope that it is yours as well – discovering the reasons for the collapse of the magnificent international communist movement of the 20th century is the most important historical and theoretical question for all exploited people today, the vast majority of humankind. To have any hope of solving it, we must think boldly, “go where no one has gone before.” If we pretend that “Marx and Engels had all the answers,” or “Lenin had all the answers” (many Trotskyists, of course, believe that “Trotsky had all the answers”) — if we believe that, then we are guaranteed, AT BEST, to fall far short of what they achieved. Marx said that great historical events occur twice “the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.” ”
Great article! Our historical task is to read, discern, struggle against all injustice, unite with, prepare and lead the working class! Victory is ours! Long Live Proletarian Revolution. Workers of the world Unite!

The personality and the writings of Leon Trotsky have long been a rallying point for anticommunists throughout the world. But during the 1930s Trotsky deliberately lied in his writings about Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union. My new book, Trotsky’s ‘Amalgams’, discusses some of Trotsky’s lies that have fooled people, and demoralized honest communists, for decades. 

In January 1980 the Trotsky Archive at Harvard University was opened to researchers. Within a few days Pierre Broué, the foremost Trotskyist historian of his time, discovered that Trotsky had lied. Trotsky had always denied that any clandestine “bloc of oppositionists” including Trotskyists, existed in the Soviet Union. Trotsky called this an “amalgam,” meaning a fabrication by Stalin. This “bloc” was the main focus of the second and third Moscow Trials of January 1937 and March 1938. Broué showed, from letters in the Trotsky Archive by Trotsky and by his son Leon Sedov, that…

Suggestion in not a democratic fashion but with a threat comes to me that I must not eat beef, even if India is the biggest exporter of beef!
Suggestion in form of order is coming, what I should wear in office, in public and even at my home.
Can I have a picnic with my atheist friends to celebrate Bhagat Singh’s birthday or organise a lecture in his memory on his martyrdom? Function can be attacked by a mob, who will teach me what to do and what not!

It is not an issue of wearing traditional dresses in office just once or twice, but part of a trend, a small part of a very big issue. The big issue is not only related to dresses, food habits, prayer, caste/religion/nation but even to our pockets, our employment, our education & health, our land if we are a tribe or a farmer, our demand of OROP, if we are soldiers, our falling social, economic and political status in a society, which is divided into class or classes!
It is related to the profit rate of the big capitalists, big financiers, big MNCs, FDI and is under the guidance of IMF, World Bank, Foreign Finance of US, EU and even China, Russia!

Hope you get the picture of the whole and how are they interrelated and in motion. Hindu Rashtra or Islam in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan or Christianity in Western Countries are mere feudal tools in the hands of the super oligarchs who with the help/services of your governments, henchmen, compradors, police, army, and judiciary control you, your movement.
Even Aadhaar, and such applications in Bangladesh and Pakistan, is being enforced upon the people by the American imperialism, so that in case they find you are a trouble maker, have potentials of uniting the working class to overthrow its empire, hegemony, your whereabouts and past can be tracked easily and you are, if needed, eliminated! GOI deposed in SC few days back that an Indian has no right to live without its consent!
There are many examples, including attacking a sovereign nation, like Grenada, interfering in Venezuela, threatening North Korea! Not a single year has lapsed after II WW, when a nation was not attacked by the imperialist empire and more than 15 Crore Earthians were murdered. This does not include coup-d’état and internal murders in these countries by the CIA aided governments!
So, friends, it’s not simple matter, it’s not matter of a temple or mosque or church or dress or food code. The enemy is a system with a massive wherewithal and never dare to revolt in solitary or in a small terrorist manner, you will be defeated, terminated and you will only serve as a lesson for the survivors.
It is fascism, a form of capitalism, though qualitatively different than its mother, capitalism. It adopts a section of bourgeois class, writers, film actors and actresses, known public figures, even from exploited sections like from minorities and Dalits (In India). It buys a section of working class as well, unemployed youths and students, lumpen workers. It promotes few leaders of smaller sections at the level of village/municipality by ensuring their selections and victory, give them economic incentives, like permit to run a public transport, gas or petrol agency, etc. Even government officials of police, army, and judiciary are not spared as they are very powerful part of bourgeois ‘democracy’ and would be pillars of fascism.
Hereafter, the dictatorship of the capitalist class is entrenched deeper into the society, government and the plunder of the majority of the population, natural resources, public property earned by the working class over decades goes unlimited! The whole movement is to increase the profit rate of the oligarchs, big capitalists, financiers and to accumulate more and even more, as the race to an uncertain figure is unlimited, the greed (Due cut throat competition among monopoly capitalists as well) is bestial and insatiable.
Join a revolutionary party, unite with the exploited mass, and multiply your anger and power to smash the enemy, to establish a true, scientific socialism to breathe in a free environment, an exploitation free society!
Today is 199th birth anniversary of Karl Marx! Salute the leader of the world proletarian class! Long live Class unity and class struggle!

And next day all Labour Unions were banned!!! Hitler was supported by British, US imperialism to defeat USSR, the first state of the proletarian state!

“In 1933 Adolf Hitler, with the full support and assistance of powerful monopoly capitalists, seized power in Germany. On April 24, Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda and Popular Enlightenment, issued a May Day Manifesto which was carried on the front page of every newspaper in Germany. Addressed ‘to the whole German people,’ it announced that May 1st had been made ‘the festival day of national labor’ and called for a celebration in which ‘Germans of all classes’ would ‘clasp hands’ and ‘in solid formation march into the new future.’ Class was a thing of the past, ‘since Marxism is smashed.’…

The London Times praised Hitler and the Nazis for having ended ‘the glorification of class-warfare and made May Day an occasion for the abolition of class differences and for the unification of workers and employers in the Fascist model.’ What it did not tell its readers was…

“Grab ’em by the pussy”: how Trump talked about women in private is horrifying.”
Now he is American President!
So are many PMs, Presidents of other nations, who are outrightly despicable but had been chosen by the voters and have risen to the highest posts of their respective countries. In some cases, even though the majority had voted against them, they have grabbed the power; like in India (Modi/RSS/BJP managed less than 20% of the total votes of India or 31% of the total votes casted, who exercised their rights at polling booths). Poroshenko in Ukraine is another example. Even state/province leaders are equally disgusting creatures.
Why such phenomenon, that too, worldover? Why bourgeois or the right wing political parties, who are morbidly anti working class, anti farmers, even anti soldiers rising? In India they are anti Dalits, anti tribes, anti women but managing to grab the state power.
Of course, they all use the unscientific, illogical and defeated ideologies, like religion, caste, national chauvinism, personality cult and all other feudal culture, values which are being reproduced on higher scale. Women as commodity & carrier of old customs are glorified on electronic media, especially in TV serials, where their slavery is projected as the great saviors of our old ‘heritage’!
Yes, the reason is simple. The rise of the working class in millions and millions, after the 2008 economic crisis, saw a swing, a reactionary swing. The imperialist capitalism has learnt enough lessons after the Soviet revolution (Capitalism was restored there after 1956 in stages, which culminated in USSR’s disintegration); how to damage & divert the unity and struggle of the working class, the exploited class! How to penetrate their rank and file, how to inject their own leaders or buy the leaders, how to inject their revisionism in their parties and the world revolutionary ideologies!
A section of the working class, peasants, especially the middle class felt that the Left ideology has failed, only the right wing parasites will be able to give them a better life, employment, basic subsistence. A smaller section is bought with money, posts and business facilities, like petrol pumps, gas agencies, head of workers in unorganised sectors, Mukhiya, etc! Old bourgeois parties also join this rising fascism. The ruling or the capitalist class, whose rate of profit was falling dangerously aids this ‘movement’. Terrorism, war are ‘gifted’ tools in their hands to destroy the proletarian movements and usurp a big profit!
Reactionary ideology has gripped a section of the mass and is acting like a material, social force.
Well, the counter undercurrent is strong as the rising pauperisation of the people, unemployment, homelessness, hunger, reducing purchasing power can never be solved by these right wing parasites. They have no solution, except temporary victory over the need of historical proletarian revolution and raise the profit rate for their masters.
Class consciousness, unity & struggle to overthrow the unjust, exploiting rule is natural. However the revolution is a conscious & planned act by the party of the exploited class, based on dialectical analysis of the present! Victory is inevitable but only question is when? How long will the humanity suffer from the yoke of capitalism and how many more millions of the people will have to sacrifice and perish?
We do not have a revolutionary tide in India or elsewhere. But that does not bar a revolutionary party from doing a revolutionary work; a political work to indoctrinate class consciousness in the working class, uniting them on class line, developing proletarian culture, making them to resist immediate exploitation and oppression economically, socially and politically. In fact it is the duty of revolutionary party to engage in revolutionary political works and resist the fascism, which is among us, in every sections of our society and state.
This preparation and resistance on class line will give us added power, multiply our forces in revolutionary time, will lead us to defeat the hegemony of bourgeois class, abolish private property and eventually help us to establish our own state by demolishing old for once and for ever, an exploitation free society, where a man is capable of exploiting another man!
Workers of the world unite!

Master of dialectics. Parliamentarianism as a historical fact and as a political need, as for the intellectuals & the advanced sections of the working class and that for the masses!!
More you read, more you correlate with the ground reality, more you practice in class struggle, more you appreciate him!
Any act, bereft of class line, will be politically a wrong line and will be an obstacle in proletarian revolution!

“It is with the utmost contempt—and the utmost levity—that the German ‘Left’ Communists reply to this question in the negative. Their arguments? In the passage quoted above we read:

‘. . . All reversion to parliamentary forms of struggle, which have become historically and politically obsolete, must be emphatically rejected. . . .’

This is said with ridiculous pretentiousness, and is patently wrong. ‘Reversion’ to parliamentarianism, forsooth! Perhaps there is already a Soviet republic in Germany? It does not look like it! How, then, can one speak of ‘reversion?’ Is this not an empty phrase?

Parliamentarianism has become ‘historically obsolete.’ That is true in the propaganda sense. However, everybody knows that this is still a far cry from overcoming it in practice. Capitalism could have been declared—and with full justice—to be ‘historically obsolete’ many decades ago, but that does not at all remove the need for a very…
