Well explained in a very simple way!
Those who wish to know more, must study what is Dialectical Materialism, Historical Materialism, how does a capitalist extract Surplus Value from the workers and accumulates massive wealth, while the unemployment/poverty rises on other side, what should be the political means to bring Socialist society!
Workers of the world unite!

“In an editorial penned for Foreign Policy, senior Pentagon policy official Rosa Brooks publicly suggested a military insurrection against the Trump administration may be the only option to oust one of the most divisive presidents in American history.” A ‘democratic right’ to propagate military rule! I am not for military rule, as it could be worse than the present! However, the capitalism has bowed to a disgusting low; from unemployment to war & terrorism, from outright plundering the other sovereign nation’s wealth to electing Trump (Hillary was no better qualitatively, either), from amassing wealth in hands of 8, more than what half the world has, to 32 millions of hungry children in US itself! This abhorrent form of capitalism is not palatable to even the die hard capitalist supporters and the suggestion if for military take over! Solution doesn’t lie here. Stop thinking vertically, its scope has diminished, think horizontally, beyond rotten and moribund capitalism! Its no more a force to lead the mankind away from feudal oppression, but has converted into a massive prison for the human kind! Demolish this prison!

These Leftists are in reality Right wing propagandists in guise of pro people slogans. There may be few exceptions, who may be ‘materialists’ in philosophical meaning and who are sad/angry over the rising poverty of the mass, even though the wealth is rising tremendously but concentrated in hands of few!
They, like Social Democrats, see the social evil in distribution and curse wide spread corruption in society, tax evasion, wavering taxes/loans of the big capitalists while curtailing basic facilities of the working class in name of reforms/austerity measures.
But they fail to see or ignore that the seeds of evil is in production, which we see in distribution multiplied multifold!
A good post to understand the present phenomenon of the pseudo “Left” world over!

Late Comrade Gopal Bhattacharya wrote some poems and got them published in form of a small book, “No Rifle In My Hand”!
His first one, “STALIN” is here:
No rifle in my hand
There’s only a book
And red letters on it: STALIN
If I were killed on
Zebra-crossing
Oh passers- by, whoever may you be
Pick the book up with you_
Don’t know about a rifle?
Read it. Can’t read letters?
Give it to your brother then
To my brother_ yes.
The man said: For all
The olive tree offers its fruit
He wanted: Every child to giggle
Being a joy to his mother
Wrote he: Those who are bending
Their head to-day
Must hold their head high
Against terrible frown.
He was from Kremlin, Joseph
An alert sentinel_ restless guy
Close friend of workers and peasants
throughout the world.
Exhorted loudly: Workers and peasants
Do have your legitimate rights
Get yourself armed.
No weapon in my hand
But only a book I’ve
The group of executioners
Halted frightfully
And the fascists withdrew in retreat
And the hired touts proved futile
With their foolish tricks
And the shrewd ruffians freezed out
In crowd
Only a masked few took up the reigns.
And so he was killed practically
Followed by further killings_
And if I were killed
You’d find in vivid the book: STALIN.
Just as he fared face-to-face
Against the cannibals
Under Chamberlain
In fighting-attire, a soldier
Protecting the country from repression
and want of regeneration
Yes, ready with arms.
I’ve no military-dress but
Armed with a book
Living on the wings of confidence
and hope
For moulding a verse
And getting news and messages
from various quarters
For getting prepared
And if you ask for more
I must say: yes,
I’ve a definite direction_ STALIN

Capitalists are not “real culprits” anyway. The real culprit is capitalism i.e., capital / wage labour relation of production – capitalist mode of production. Just as wage workers are slaves of wage, so also capitalists are slaves of profit; they collectively constitute the necessary functionaries of capital.
According to Marx, “capital is also necessarily a capitalist. The idea of some socialists, that we need capital but not capitalists, is completely false. …The concept of capital implies the capitalist. … Capital is essentially a capitalist.” – (Pre-Capitalist Economic Formations, International Publishers, New York, 1975, pp. 118-19)
Capitalists are merely capital personified. Existence of capital signifies the existence of the two interdependent and interrelated classes. None of the two sides have any respite until capitalism is done away with through world socialist revolution which requires maturity of two necessary conditions – 1) subjective i.e., the revolutionary will and organization of the working class, and 2) objective i.e., material abundance on world scale. Now it is an observable fact that productive and potential abundance on world scale exists progressively since about the beginning of the past century, whereas the other condition – the revolutionary will and worldwide organization i.e., class consciousness and an independent organization and movement – is still lagging behind. Even though over a century past in 1904 the Socialist Party of Great Britain came into being subsequently giving rise to the World Socialist Movement comprising companion parties, groups and contacts spread around the world who remain resolutely active towards world socialism, the Movement is yet to gain decisive ground.
Long ago in 1865 Karl Marx urged upon the workers of the world: “Instead of the conservative motto, ‘A fair day’s wages for a fair day’s work!” they ought to inscribe on their banner the revolutionary watchword, ‘Abolition of the wages system!'” (Value, Price and Profit, 1865, London, George Allen & Unwin Ltd. 1942, p. 93).
Thus, you know, the historical responsibility of abolition of wages slavery, abolition of capitalism rests solely on the initiative of an independent organization of the working class as a class-for-itself. Then why blame the capitalists? Historically, they are not responsible for the ongoing state of affairs of society. They had accomplished their own capitalist revolution eventually dismantling feudalism – the landed aristocracy and serfdom having drawn into this task their workers as its driving force around the world. They had duped workers with their buzzword – Liberté, égalité, fraternité in French for “liberty, equality, fraternity”, which is the national motto of France. That’s all. Thus they had captured political power and then retained their buzzword as a propaganda piece in their history books. Thereafter they had and have nothing to do with the next revolution in history – the World Socialist Revolution. Rather they are quite helpless regarding this task.
Socialist Revolution lingers on simply because of the utter confusion created by the social media – rightists, centrists and the leftists squaring the circle of capital’s bet – brainwashing and corrupting with their ubiquitous ideology of glorification of nationalism, patriotism, employment system, competition and private interests. This ideology has blinded and derailed world’s workers about what is to be done. Pitiably, most workers of the world are still remaining confined within capitalist perspectives. So if you want to blame anybody, you have to blame the workers of the world for not assuming and accomplishing their long pending revolutionary task.
Revolution – Ballots, not bullets
“… there could be no doubt for us, under the circumstances then obtaining, that the great decisive battle had commenced, that it would have to be fought out in a single, long and vicissitudinous period of revolution, but that it could only end in the final victory of the proletariat….
“But history has shown us too to have been wrong, has revealed our point of view at that time as an illusion. It has done even more; it has not merely dispelled the erroneous notions we then held; it has also completely transformed the conditions under which the proletariat has to fight. The mode of struggle of 1848 is today obsolete in every respect …
“The time of surprise attacks, of revolutions carried through by small conscious minorities at the head of masses lacking consciousness is past. Where it is a question of a complete transformation of the social organisation, the masses themselves must also be in it, must themselves already have grasped what is at stake, what they are fighting for, body and soul.
“The history of the last fifty years has taught us that. But in order that the masses may understand what is to be done, long, persistent work is required, and it is just this work that we are now pursuing, and with a success which drives the enemy to despair.”
Engels, Introduction to Marx’s “The Class Struggles in France 1848 to 1850” Marx/Engels, Selected Works, Vol. I, Progress Publishers, Moscow 1969, pp. 190, 199-200; Also See: Works of Frederick Engels 1895 at: http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1895/03/06.htm
“Considering
“That this collective appropriation can only be the outcome of the revolutionary action of the productive class – or proletariat – organized in a separate political party.
“That such organization must be pursued by all the means, which the proletariat has at its disposal, including universal suffrage, thus transformed from the instrument of trickery, which it has been up till now into an instrument of emancipation.” [Emphasis added]

Salute Comrade Rosa Luxemburg!

96 years ago today, on 15 January 1919, Rosa Luxemburg was detained, interrogated and murdered by right-wing soldiers under the command of socialist Defence Minister Gustav Noske. Today she is remembered around the world for her life and ideas.

Born in Russian-Poland in a middle-class Jewish family in 1873, Rosa Luxemburg emigrated to Switzerland after completing High School and enrolled at Zurich University. Whilst still a student she co-founded the Social Democracy of the Kingdom of Poland (SDKP, later SDKPiL), with Leo Jogiches, Adolf Warszawski and Julian Marchlewski, before being awarded a doctorate in 1897.

The following year, she moved to Berlin and joined the German Social-Democratic Party (SPD), then the largest and most powerful socialist organisation in the world. She rose to prominence on the left-wing of the SPD as a firebrand speaker, journalist and theoretician, writing works on economics, nationalism, imperialism, war, socialism and democracy.
