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…

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!

The Espresso Stalinist

“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…

There were many who cursed Copernicus in 15th century that Earth was not stationary but orbits around the sun. In fact the then rulers announced death sentence for him, unless he apologises for his ‘stupid’ discovery, which he did to avoid being hanged.
Till late in 19th Century, the people’s thinking was metaphysical, seeing things as stationary, disconnected with other incidents, sets of system. This was the natural outcome of 1000s of scientific discoveries, which needed metaphysical investigation and changed mankind’s natural dialectical method of reasoning. But then the interconnection, curtsey science itself, forced mankind to become dialectical again. One example here to clarify dialectical reasoning: Discovery of inter mingling of arteries & veins, that is, blood is not stored in different tight compartments in a human body. Another one was recent in physics, matter is not only in solid, liquid and gas state but even in energy. The theory of evolution, opposed to creation, helped identify the law of quantitative change into qualitative change, from single vertebrae to twin might have taken 1 million year but to reach 7, it did not take 7 millions, but less than 3, as there was ‘revolution’ in the process. The latest is the gravitational waves with Godam Particle, which leaves no part of the Universe isolated, simple evolution through its beginning to end does not exist.
Indian philosopher Charvak did mention dialectical method but had limitations due scientific informations in his time, so was Aristotle. Finally there we have Hegel, the great philosopher, who discovered the dialectical laws, reduced them to writing, though he remained an idealist. The next work to complete the investigation method well on genius Marx, who finally brought a complete science, known as Dialectical Materialism! Frederick Engels was his comrade in arm for this task and wrote further explanations in his famous book ‘Anti Duhring’.
Marx himself applied this method on human beings, their history and found that it also complies dialectical mode. A man, part of society, acts & thinks as per the social, political, economic conditions. While engaging in production, a necessary act to manage his means of subsistence, he enters into a relation with not only nature but also with other men, which we call production relation.
The development of mankind; from Savage era, Barbarian era to Slavery, Feudal relation of production and now Capitalism, with great history of Socialism, which was defeated by treachery from within and outside in between; was not incidental. It was connected to each other, developed as per the mode of production, technologies employed, and even the superstructure developed thereafter confirmed its base, that is economic activities. Superstructure, that is politics, religion, caste, spiritualism, art, culture, etc also interacted the base but with limitation.
For example, Einstein was not possible before Newton, as the formers could not have imagined that the light travels, forget about discovery of special and general theory of relativity! Same way, Marx was not possible before Ricardo or Adam Smith, the greatest classical economists of their time, who did reach to the level of ‘Surplus Value’ but could not discover it.
So, we call this law in human science as “Historical materialism”. Apart from philosophy, Marx, Engels establish the basics of Economy, surplus value, the cause of recurrent economic crisis and boom, so far not only valid but more relevant. This law was further developed by Lenin, and showed how the ‘free market’ is replaced by “Monopoly Capitalism”, which he called the highest stage of capitalism, also known as Imperialism. That means, there is no further scope of further development in capitalism, and if retained by force, it will only degenerate and the rot will be visible in superstructure, like what we see today, rise in unemployment, right wing criminal philistines, be in US, India, China, Ukraine, elsewhere.
The last part of Marxism Leninism is politics, which I have been talking in this group frequently. Marxist politics, means in short, replacing bourgeois state with that of proletarian state. The transition from Capitalism into Socialism & eventually into Communism. This transition will not be smooth as the existing elites, their compradors, henchmen, state & all its machineries will resist with all their worthy might, with violence. This transition is revolution.
The proletarian politics and revolution is politics of class struggle, class hegemony of capitalists which is to be defeated and the hegemony of the working class is to be established, during transition period.
The humankind’s civilisation from ‘pre historic communism’ to the modern communism, with very large scale of industries, socialised agriculture, with abundance of social wealth to meet the needs of all its members, so that they are no more worried about their employment and basics, education and health, though is part of historical materialism but revolution is needed. Even slavery was replaced through revolution, and now capitalism with much more complication and power, a more coordinated and planned acts on behalf of the working class, the most advanced section of the mankind in the history is needed.
The Soviet Revolution by the Bolsheviks under the able leadership of VI Lenin, was new to the mankind. Their leaders, the managers, workers, soldiers joined together to uphold their state to develop socialism. The Western powers never believed that this state will survive even a single say. Philistinism was the basic reason for such belief but nonetheless, they tried every day, every opportunity to destroy it physically. The treachery of Trotsky continued from Lenin to Stalin era.
Stalin’s mistake here was his failure to recognise these traitors and later that of Khrushchev and cliches, who eventually ensured capitalist restoration in USSR and other allies. China fell to imperialism during Mao’s time only due his erroneous understanding of the essentials of class contradiction, that existed in even socialist society, as long as capitalist countries exist in the world, who will try to sabotage every such movements.
Stalin and his entire team, the collective leadership of CPSU build USSR in a fashion, which was a dream project on the mother Earth. Bhagat Singh was not lucky enough to see all the transformation in this charisma in industries, agriculture, science, women’s equality & emancipation! Women fighter pilots were feared by the German Army, their accuracy, lethality and commitment was so high. The development showed in education, painting, arts, health, production of aeroplanes, cosmetics (Yes), clothings, cars, voyage to moon, name if & they did it. The crime for private property was abolished. Political crime was there and those traitors were liquidated, though much less, what the imperialist blocks, Hitler did or now doing!
Lenin, Stalin, nay the Marxism Leninism as an ideology for the working class, peasants, oppressed women, child labourers, Dalits & minorities, is rising world over, especially after 2008 chronic economic crisis. The outcome is also attack by the bourgeois class, imperialism capitalism through their henchmen, agents in name of religion, colour, caste, nationalism, personality cult, etc on the people.
You see these reactionaries every where, even here, trying their best to malign worker’s international leaders Lenin, Stalin, Comrade CPR & Moni Guha and others but shy away from the science of mankind, historical materialism, economic crises, massive unemployment, terrorism, war!
There is no alternate theory that the moribund & parasitic Capitalism, which has seen its birth, growth and now in its last terminal stage, has to be buried. The base of all evil is almost dead and the last rite is to be performed by the unity & struggle of the working class of the world, the revolution.
Incidentally, the exploited class understands the above in much better that those who have read one or two books by rabid anti communist writers. The massive accumulation of wealth, which has led to the concentration of wealth in hands of 8 people as much as in that of bottom of half the Earthians. Read Oxfam on this, which also forwards data to show how 3 Trillion USD was misappropriated by these super elites from the lower strata of the mankind! On the other hand 1 Billion people are starving on Earth. That is, growth of private property means more exploitation, higher surplus value, higher GDP but more miseries to the workers who created them! This is understood by the workers.
Today in India, the working women, Dalits, minorities, nationalities are oppressed. Why? To divert the attention of the working class from the main issues of unemployment, from uniting and struggling!
Friends, join the progressive and revolutionary forces, the advanced section of the society, the workers for a united struggle. Its historic task, ignore the middle class paid or unpaid diseased pseudo intellectuals, their worth is not even garbage, are in extreme minority.
Long live Lenin, Long live Stalin, Long live proletarian unity and their revolutionary ideology, Long live proletarian revolution!
