‘When we look at a thing, we must examine its essence and treat its appearance merely as an usher at the threshold, and once we cross the threshold, we must grasp the essence of the thing; this is the only reliable and scientific method of analysis.’
Mao Zedong: “A Single Spark Can Start a Prairie Fire” (January 5, 1930)
Bourgeois society continuously presents the most superficial of realities to the senses – because this is all that is needed to manipulate the liberal democratic system and its media in the right (anti-Socialist) direction! As long as the workers remain disempowered, disorganised and disenfranchised – then all is right with the means of production! The Scientific Socialist process requires the cultivation of a permanent ‘depth of vision’ which sees ‘beyond’ the superficial play of words and images! This is the case with regards the case of Aravindan Balakrishnan and his current imprisonment by the British State. The Bourgeoise System presents the usual corrupted interpretation of a life spent working for the psychological and physical welfare of humanity. It is a thoroughly ‘inverted’ vision that turns heaven into hell – and good into bad. Once the message is issued (like a ‘coin’ or a ‘stamp’) the parameters of its message stay exactly the same as it is continuously passed around in this format. In the case of Bourgeois State propaganda designed to disparage a particular individual – this false message is designed for an unquestioning replication! Once the Bourgeois State decrees a certain view of the world, it is usual for this view to be accepted without question – but this is exactly the conservative forces of society that prevent the working-class from coming together and changing society for the better!
Those who support Aravindan Balakrishnan ‘resist’ the judgement of the Bourgeois British State as it is obviously pursuing a political agenda against an old man chosen because of his ideological affiliation. The corrupt Bourgeois State has fabricated a false narrative which has nothing to do with the real life of Aravindan Balakrishnan – but which is a ‘replacement’ and ‘alternative’ vision for the true events of his existence. As most ordinary people do not know Aravindan Balakrishnan – or know anyone who does – then all they are left with is the judgement of the Bourgeois State which they are trained never to question or look beyond the prescribed meaning of events. This is a mythical existence where the forces of predatory capitalism are depicted as sublime and utopic! This is the fabricated ‘orthodox’ view which is the currency of the Bourgeois State. Accepting this pseudo-reality opens doors and oils the cogs of greedy society for those who conform. The true heroes of Bourgeois Society are those individuals who do the exact ‘opposite’! The life of Aravindan Balakrishnan has lived a long life in the name of the people and in opposition to the Bourgeois State. This is the real reason why he is being persecuted now. His life of Socialist activism has led to the Bourgeois State taking action against him (and his supporters).
As the version of Aravindan Balakrishnan’s life as concocted by the Bourgeois State is a ‘myth’ – it can be laid to one side for the time being. What is important is the dialectically correct manner with which Aravindan Balakrishnan applied the ideology of Marxist-Leninist (Maoism). This has been constructed from a sound ideological and dialectical foundation upwards – from the psychological and physical development and well-being of children to the preparation of adults for all kinds of progressive leadership roles! None of this will be found within the fabrications of the Bourgeois State because the reality of his existence serves to ‘undermine’ the protocols of this State-backed falsification project. Applying the advice of Mao Zedong, anyone can look ‘beyond the surface’ and begin the process of ‘deconstructing’ the ‘official’ version of Aravindan Balakrishnan’s life! It simply does not make sense when the genuine facts are known and considered in the cold light of day. The version of the Bourgeois State is only evident at the surface level – dig just beneath the surface and you will find that it has no substance! It is all surface construction only as the ‘official’ story is not premised upon any genuine facts relevant to the situation!
