The Apathetic British Working Class and the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (2017)

The celebrations regarding the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution that brought Lenin and the (Communist) Bolsheviks to power in 1917, have been ‘muted’ in the UK to say the least. The British working class, compromised and infiltrated as it is by bourgeois Trotskyism, has remained generally apathetic in its recognition and praise for Lenin, with spontaneous (and even ‘planned’) celebrations in favour of Communism, and protests against the oppressive and unjust nature of capitalism, remaining virtually non-existent. The British working class has allowed the ruling bourgeoisie to set the agenda, and has remained ‘quiet’ whilst that bourgeoisie denigrates the memory of the Russian Revolution, suggesting in its usual self-serving middle class manner, that there was something ‘morally’ and ‘historically’ wrong about the Communist Revolution that overthrew its power-base in 1917, and gave the international working class hope. Of course, parody and disinformation from the (bourgeois) rightwing is to be expected, but exactly the same fallacious arguments are also employed by the (bourgeois) left! The British working class, as representatives of the industrialised proletariat, should be setting an entirely ‘positive’ agenda for the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution, and be agitating against any and all bourgeois attempts at stealing proletariat history, and misconstruing that history for its own nefarious ends. The Russian October Revolution was one of the greatest and most important world events in working class history! Bourgeois attitudes are irrelevant to this fact, simply because the Russian Revolution marks the transcendence of Bourgeois domination and oppression. However, if the British working class does not adequately stand-up for itself, the bourgeoisie will use every deceptive tactic it can to sully the good reputation of the Russian Revolution, and dismiss any relevance it would otherwise have for the working class. The bourgeoisie limits the memory of the Russian Revolution to its broadsheets and its museums – as if it was an event of limited historical import, with no relevance to the modern era. The British working class should stop its association with the corrupting bourgeois ideology of Trotsky, and take its rightful historical place in the world proletariat movement of Marxist-Leninism.
