“Not a single great movement of the oppressed in the history of mankind has been able to do without the participation of working women.
Working women, the most oppressed among the oppressed, never have or could stand aside from the broad path of the liberation movement. This movement of slaves has produced, as is known, hundreds and thousands of martyrs and heroines. Tens of thousands of working women were to be found in the ranks of fighters for the liberation of the serfs. It is not surprising that millions of working women have been drawn in beneath the banners of the revolutionary movement of the working class, the most powerful of all liberation movements of the oppressed masses.
International Women’s Day is a token of invincibility and an augury of the great future which lies before the liberation movement of the working class.
Working women – workers and peasants – are the greatest reserve of the working class. This reserve constitutes a good half of the population. The fate of the proletarian movement, the victory or defeat of the proletarian revolution, the victory or defeat of proletarian power depends on whether or not the reserve of women will be for or against the working class.
That is why the first task of the proletariat and its advanced detachment, the communist party, is to engage in decisive struggle for the freeing of women workers and peasants from the influence of the bourgeoisie, for political education and the organisation of women workers and peasants beneath the banner of the proletariat.
International Women’s Day is a means of winning the women’s labour reserves to the side of the proletariat. Working women are not only reserves, however. They can and must become – if the working class carries out a correct policy – a real army of the working class, operating against the bourgeoisie.
The second and decisive task of the working class is to forge an army of worker and peasant women out of the women’s labour reserves to operate shoulder to shoulder with the great army of the proletariat.
International Woman’s Day must become a means for turning worker and peasant women from a reserve of the working class into an active army in the liberation movement of the proletariat.”
– J.V. Stalin, “1925 International Women’s Day Address”

“Marxism is the science of the laws governing the development of nature and society, the science of the revolution of the oppressed and exploited masses, the science of the victory of socialism in all countries, the science of building communist society. As a science, Marxism cannot stand still, it develops and is perfected. In its development, Marxism cannot but be enriched by new experience, new knowledge — consequently some of its formulas and conclusions cannot but change in the course of time, cannot but be replaced by new formulas and conclusions, corresponding to the new historical tasks. Marxism does not recognize invariable conclusions and formulas, obligatory for all epochs and periods. Marxism is the enemy of all dogmatism.”

J. Stalin

My ambition was to liquidate communism, the dictatorship over all the people. Supporting me and urging me on in this mission was my wife, who was of this opinion long before I was. I knew that I could only do this if I was the leading functionary. In this my wife urged me to climb to the top post. While I actually became acquainted with the West, my mind was made up forever. I decided that I must destroy the whole apparatus of the CPSU and the USSR. Also, I must do this in all of the other socialist countries. My ideal is the path of social democracy. Only this system shall benefit all the people. This quest I decided I must fulfil.

I found friends that had the same thoughts as I in Yakovlev and Shevernadze, they all deserve to be thanked for the break-up of the USSR and the defeat of Communism.

World without communism is going to be much better. After year 2000 the world will be much better, because it shall develop and prosper. But there are countries which shall try to struggle against this. China for one. I was in Peking during the time of the protests on Tienanmen Square, where I really thought that Communism in China is going to crash. I sternly demanded of the Chinese leadership that I want to speak to the protesters, but they did not allow me to do so. If Communism would fall in China, all the world would be better off, and on the road to peace.

I wanted to save the USSR, but only under social democracy rule. This I could not do. Yeltsin wanted power, he did not know anything about democracy or what I intended to do. We wanted the democratic USSR to have rights and freedom.

Then Yeltsin broke up the USSR and at that time I was not in the Kremlin, all the newspaper reporters asked me whether I shall cry? I did not cry, because I really managed to destroy Communism in the USSR, and also in all other European Socialist countries. I did not cry, because I knew that I fulfilled my main aim, that was the defeat of communism in Europe. But you must also know, that communism must be defeated in Asia also, to make the transition quicker to democracy and freedom in the whole world.

The liquidation of the USSR is not beneficial to the USA, since they have now no mighty democratic country (the former USSR) which I wanted to call the Union of Independent Sovereign Republics. I could not accomplish all of this. All the small countries now are thanking the USA for the help. I wanted the USA and the former USSR to be partners without the scourge of Communism, these could have been the ruling countries of the world. The road towards democracy will be a long one, but it is coming very quickly. The whole world must now defeat the last remnants of communism!

My Comments:

I am not sure if Gorbachev really said this or its a cooked up story! As far as Gorbachev is concerned, he is an idiot and knows nothing of Communism and even Social Democracy (A form of capitalism), which he loves and wanted to establish in USSR!
USSR, which disintegrated, was an imperialist capitalist block; the process of capitalist restoration had started long back by his ancestors, viz, Khrushchev and gangs!
In a way, Gorbachev did right thing to destroy the veil of socialism that USSR wore. Yes, the multi-polar world changed into single-polar for a brief period and the working class had to suffer more than before.
The revolt against capitalist exploitation is palpable and Stalin is rising again, the proletarian revolution is not far in the future!!

The five classics of Marxism-Leninism in the Espresso Stalinist banner are: (1) Karl Heinrich Marx – Communist League and the International Workingmen’s Association (2) Friedrich Engels…

Brief, yet gives insight of the greatest world proletarian leaders! #Socialism

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

“When the oppressed of the world throw off the shackles of imperialism, taking back their land, their resources, their industries, built with their toil and their lives; as they follow in the footsteps of Lenin, Stalin, and the Soviet Union to destroy the old order, based on the oppression of the working class majority by an ever-decreasing minority of capitalists and build a new society of mutual cooperation for the advancement of humankind … this is not a noble or just cause in the eyes of the bourgeoisie.”

Very well explained in simple language!
