Wikileaks and the Re-Distribution of Knowledge

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Wikileaks is not a Socialist organisation, a point which can be discerned from the fact that although documents have been released regarding various and continuous abuses of power by Western, capitalist governments, at no time is the capitalist system (which gives rise to these injustices and atrocities), criticised by Wikileaks. Wikileaks is in the business of ‘re-distributing’ knowledge, but is definitely not in the business of re-distributing wealth and eradicating inequalities from within society. In this regard, Wikileaks is a thoroughly bourgeois and individualistic endeavour, which explains why the bourgeois-left British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ was complicit in assisting Wikileaks with a number of its earliest links (which attacked the government of Kenya). There is a mistaken notion at the heart of Wikileaks which assumes that without transforming the capitalist system, things can be made ‘better’ by simply sharing knowledge. This is an obviously middle class and Eurocentric view of the world, which over-prices the value of information, and ignores the fact that the systemic poverty within the capitalist system ensures an asymmetric distribution of that knowledge, which can only be accessed by the economically and culturally privileged. This smirks of bourgeois anarchy, or perhaps even Trotskyism, but certainly cannot be associated with Revolutionary Socialism. Simply telling governments what they already know is not a Revolutionary act.

What Wikileaks has achieved is the confirmation that the democratically elected governments of the capitalist world, routinely ‘lie’ and act to ‘deceive’ the very electorate that votes them into power, to a level that is so huge that it is difficult to fully comprehend in a single sitting. We can see that ‘War Crimes’ have been part and parcel of the US military presence in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and that breaking domestic and international law is routine for every US government. Of course, Wikipedia has stated that it has nothing to do with Wikileaks, and condemns its method and purpose. This is not surprising, as Wikipedia follows US government guidelines with its perpetuation of ‘fake’ history about the USSR, Palestine and China, etc. With regards to China, I have included three Chinese language articles that mention Wikileaks in the Chinese media. This exposes the lie perpetuated by Wikileaks that it is ‘banned’ in China! As a Communist State, the US (and its allies) are not allowed to use their bourgeois media outlets as a means to directly undermine the Communist Party of China (CPC), or its governance of China. As matters stand, although disruptive and inconvenient for the capitalist governments, Wikileaks remains firmly within the bourgeois, capitalist camp an is not a friend of Socialism. This is despite Wikileaks revealing US diplomatic papers proving that the supposed 1989 Tiananmen Square Incident was a media fabrication of the US and UK governments. Communist China is not interested in Western governments telling lies – as Karl Marx established this fact over a hundred years ago.

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (2017) – Trust in the Communist Party!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The USSR lives on in memory and in material fact. It collapsed from the combined pressures of Trotsky, Khrushchev, Gorbachev and Western capitalism. What the USSR represented – as the first Workers’ State – is a tremendously powerful psychological and physical image that serves as a rallying point for millions of oppressed peoples around the globe. The 1917 October Revolution will always be significant because it signalled the successful rising of the Working Class and the smashing of predatory capitalism! Although there is much lying and disinformation in the West about the USSR, nevertheless, the internet allows opportunities to study that by-pass the bourgeois educational facilities, and which allows individuals and groups to find more reliable and authentic sources of information. The Cold War lies are still very much in operation, but as time goes by, and the work of people like Grover Furr, Andrew Alexander and Alexander Werth (and many others), become better known, the wholesome truth about the USSR (and its vital importance for the evolution of humanity) will move ever more to the fore-front of general perception. This positive counter-swing is strengthened by the presence of the Collected Works of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao (amongst others) being readily (and freely) available on the internet. As usual, the greatest challenges above and beyond the confrontation with predatory capitalism for the Communist Party is that of successfully countering Trotskyism (i.e. ‘pseudo-Socialism’), and the crippling forces of revisionism from the left. There is a wealth of legitimate proletariat literature available in the public domain which must be logically studied from a Scientific Socialist point of view. Even if certain ‘expedient’ compromises must be made with the Bourgeois State on the surface (due to prevailing socio-economic conditions), the true (and non-inverted) underpinnings of Marxist-Leninism must always serve as the dialectical ‘prime mover’ of any Communist Movement. The Working Class must always trust the Communist Party which is a collective expression of its proletariat ‘will’. The Communist Party came to power through a wave of Revolutionary activity in 1917 – and the same Communist Party exists throughout the world today, always representing and leading the ordinary people, and continuously agitating against the capitalist system. The ‘Communist Party’ in principle did not begin with the 1917 Russian Revolution, and did not end with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is an ongoing and unfolding process of historical materialism. Trust in the Communist Party and support it with all your proletariat being!

How the Bourgeois Legal System Works

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The bourgeois legal system that operates within capitalist societies, is the epitome of class discrimination. It has been developed over hundreds of years by the middle class as a means to consolidate its political power, and to protect its interests and property. Access to this profession is very strictly controlled, and limited to the off-spring of the middle class. The working class is excluded from this profession, and unless working class individuals possess access to ample supplies of money, are also excluded from its legal protection. This is because the legal system, the judiciary and the police have all been historically constructed as a means to ‘protect’ the middle class from the working class. Why would this be necessary? This is because of the disparity of the distribution of wealth throughout feudal and capitalist societies. As the rich will not willingly ‘share’ their wealth, the working class (as individuals or groups) has been continuously agitating for a fairer share of the wealth that they generate for the middle class through their labour. The bourgeois legal system ensures that there can be no recourse to any effective legal action by the working class against the middle class.

This process of ‘inequality’ is held together by the illusion of ‘fairness’. When taken as a whole, the bourgeois legal system appears to be ‘fair’ in principle, when all its checks and balances are considered, but this is a charade. Within the capitalist system, an individual only has access to the legal system through the amount of money that he or she can afford to pay for a legal representative. The legal system has developed a ‘jargon’ all of its own, which ‘excludes’ all those who are not trained in it. Therefore, the judges and legal representatives all conspire to ‘with-hold’ rights from an individual – until it is proven that the individual in question can ‘afford’ the access’ fee. No access fee – no legal rights. Depending upon the cost of the legal representative, the individual requiring legal representation will access his or her rights on an ascending scale, with the least money attracting the least rights, and the most money attracting the most rights. Therefore, the bourgeois legal system only appears ‘fair’ on paper, but certainly is not fair in practice. Those who do not possess the wealth to hire an expensive legal representative, in effect possess no legal rights. This is because their income does not possess the financial power to ‘prove’ (through legal representation) that these rights apply to them.

By way of illustration, a simple example of this disparity will suffice. Let us assume that a poor family in the UK has come under scrutiny by Social Services (a government department that oppresses the very poor and vulnerable it purports to help). This poor family approach a bourgeois lawyer and explain their plight. The lawyer, seeing that there is a case for illegal behaviour on the part of Social Services, suggests that a legal representation can be made, whereby the lawyer will support the family and forcibly represent their legal interests – making clear all the infractions of the rules and procedures perpetuated by Social Services. Furthermore, the lawyer states that as it is difficult to sue a government agency, it would be better to sue individuals working for the Social Services (thus by-passing departmental privilege). The only catch to all this positive assessment is that the lawyer will charge £250 per hour – and will require at least £500 in advance. The poor family explains that they cannot afford the fee. The lawyer, who had previously explained that the Social Services were behaving ‘illegally’, now changes the nature of the legal advise available. The poor family is now advised to ‘acquiesce’ to all the demands of the Social Services, and to adopt a ‘subservient’ position in the face of this illegal activity. As this poor family are not ‘paying’ for legal representation, what was previously interpreted as ‘illegal’ activity on behalf of the Social Services  is now re-interpreted as a ‘misunderstood’ or ‘misconstrued’ application of policy. The lawyer is bourgeois as is the Social Services. When poor people are subjected to illegal activity, the bourgeois system supports that criminality, and closes ranks around its own class interests. This is the middle class obsession with capitalism.

Exposing a ‘Fake’ Story About China – the Case of the Poor Farmer and Educated Son

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Communist China is continuously misrepresented in the West, as part of a US-led drive to demean the Chinese people and denigrate their Socialist System. This policy is pursued in a number of ways, one of which is the ‘planting’ of ‘fake’ news articles within a compliant and unquestioning Western media. These articles state untruths such as China is not ‘Communist’, Tibet is under ‘Chinese’ occupation and that the Falun Gong is a ‘peaceful’ organisation (rather than a very dangerous cult). Chinese people are considered racially inferior, and their culture a matter of practised stupidity. The Chinese Socialist state is continuously misrepresented as ‘oppressive’ and ‘failing’, when nothing could be further from the truth.

The photographs above were doing the rounds a few years ago in the West, claiming that an impoverished farmer in China had saved every penny to give his only son a university education – implying that people in China are poverty-stricken and desperate for education. This is completely untrue. ALL education in China is completely free for ALL Chinese citizens – including farmers from economically deprived areas! However, even in areas of relative poverty, finance and resources are extensively pumped into the area so that no one in modern China suffers like in old China. Finally, it has been recently revealed that this photograph and story are not from Communist China – but rather ‘capitalist’ Thailand, where much of their population lives in abject poverty, and ALL education is paid for (as it is in the USA).

Expunging Trotsky from ‘Socialist’ History – a Dialectical Necessity

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Even before he was expelled for treasonous activities from the Soviet Union in 1929, Trotsky’s distorted version of ‘Socialism’ had attracted the attention of the anti-Soviet ideologues in the USA. Indeed, there is much evidence to suggest that after WWII, what had by then become referred to as ‘Trotskyism’ was used as the basis for the US anti-Soviet (and anti-Communist) Cold War rhetoric. This is why most people are confused by ‘Trotskyism’ and the many organisations that follow his anti-Soviet ideology – whilst still insisting on calling themselves ‘Socialist’. Trotsky, for many, is known the wrong way around back to front, and in many ways ‘ahistorically’. What must be understood is that Trotsky was not a true Revolutionary, but rather a political ‘opportunist’ of the worst kind. He temporarily aligned himself with Revolutionary Movements to further his own political career, and as a means for him to attain influence and personal power at any cost. In this regard, he certainly was not a Marxist or Marxist-Leninist, and had no theoretical interest in those ideologies.

Trotsky was criticised by Lenin – and later by Stalin – for continuously failing to understand and interpret history from a Marxist perspective. This led to Trotsky attempting to undermine the hard-earned Soviet System from within, by advocating a thoroughly ‘bourgeois’ counter-revolution, with himself at the helm. For this treachery, he (and many of his followers) were expelled from the Soviet Union in 1929 – but a number of his followers remained behind ‘undetected’ within the Soviet System to spread their particular brand of ‘unrest’ and ‘discontent’. Many, as the years went by, attempted acts of sabotage against the Soviet State, destroying technology and machinery, and interfering with scientific research. Some even attempted to undermine the morale of the Red Army, and turn its officers against the Soviet State it had helped to build.

As Trotsky became the darling of the West, he attracted a great attention from the supporters of capitalism – which included many members of the rightwing and far-right political establishment in America, Europe and Asia.  This inspired Trotsky to actively call for all of his supposedly ‘Socialist’ supporters to enter into an alliance with Nazi Germany and fascist Imperialist Japan in 1938, and work to over-throw the Soviet Union AND the liberal democracies of the West! A year before (in 1937), many of Trotsky’s ‘sleeper cells’ in the USSR had become active, and were immediately identified by the NKVD and ‘neutralised’. This policing action was necessary to prevent what would today be interpreted as a comprehensive ‘terrorist’ attack on a sovereign government and the country it administers. If Trotsky had been successful, the Soviet Union would have collapsed prior to WWII, and the Red Army would not have existed to confront and eventually destroy the military forces of Nazi Germany.

As it is now the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution (2017), it is important that Trotsky is nolonger viewed as a legitimate ‘Revolutionary’, and that his path of ideology (which he and his followers deceptively term ‘Socialism’), not be associated with either Marxism-Engelsism, or Marxism-Leninism. Trotsky’s work must be historically ‘re-oriented’ and removed from the glittering history of Revolutionary Struggle, and placed firmly within the realms of capitalist-supporting, bourgeois counter-revolutionary thought. Trotsky’s duplicity cost the lives of immeasurable numbers of people due to the Nazi German invasion of the Soviet Union – despite this beginning a year after Trotsky’s death. Presumably Hitler was of the opinion that Trotsky’s followers had carried-out enough damage to the infrastructure of the USSR, and that the time was now ripe to invade. Of course, the distorted history of the capitalist West blames all this on Stalin – as Trotsky demanded. Indeed, in 1925, just one year after the death of Lenin, the US Time magazine already began to exhibit the interfering-style of developed US Cold War rhetoric – by implying that Trotsky (and his ‘distorted’ Socialism) should now run the USSR – over Joseph Stalin. The myth here, is that Soviet citizens did not vote. In fact, ‘voting’ in a proletariat society is a central activity to every citizen’s life, but of course, proletariat democracy is not liberal democracy, and does not favour or privilege the bourgeoisie. The point continuously omitted in Trotskyite accounts of the USSR, is that from 1924 until his death in 1953, Comrade Stalin was continuously re-elected into office – despite trying to resign ‘twice’ after 1945. The citizenry of the USSR was organised around the trade union model, where from lowest to the highest in society – everyone voted for representatives on numerous committees. This organisational model did allow the bourgeoisie to manifest and/or exercise power within a Socialist society. Trotsky wanted to reverse this Revolutionary change, and allow the resurgence of capitalism in the USSR, and along with it the predatory capitalist system.

The very idea that Stalin had millions, or hundreds of thousands sent to the gulags – and/or executed – is an ‘ahistorical’ lie perpetuated by Leon Trotsky and his followers. Alexander Werth was a British BBC correspondent who was of Russian parentage. He was with the Red Army virtually throughout the entirety of the ‘Great Patriotic War’ (1941-1945), and was allowed at the frontline. During August, 1944, Alexander Werth was with the Red Army when it liberated the Majdanek Concentration Camp in Poland – built by the Nazi Germans. His initial reports to the BBC in London were the first to reach the allies regarding the Nazi German holocaust of the Jews and other minorities. Winston Churchill, still looking for ways of absolving the Hitlerite regime, had Werth’s reports quashed – stating that they were Soviet lies about Nazi Germany. As a result, Werth spent much of his later life repudiating US and UK anti-Soviet propaganda, proving it to be ‘untrue’. In 1959, Werth visited the Soviet Union once again, and met-up with a number of American friends who lived and worked in the USSR. As incredible as it seems, and despite the rabid anti-Soviet propaganda in the US, American people still travelled to the USSR, with some making their homes there. When Werth asked one or two prominent Americans about the supposed ‘purges’ of the late 1930’s, he was usually met with laughter! The general consensus was that a Trotskyite plot was uncovered that involved around 10,000 traitors. Many were sent to prison, whilst a minority were executed for treason. There were not hundred of thousands, or millions of people involved – Trotsky was just not that popular in the USSR – where life was very good for most people!

The Nazi German holocaust cost the lives of around 11 million people (6 million Jews, and 5 millions of other ethnicities, political and sexual orientations, the disabled, and anyone who disagreed with fascism). Meanwhile, Imperial Japan is estimated to have caused around 60 million deaths in China, a figure that does not include those killed throughout other parts of Asia by Japanese troops. When the Nazi German forces invaded the Soviet Union, between 27-40 million casualties were suffered (both military and civilian). The conquered Ukraine area of the USSR saw some of the worst Nazi German excesses of the holocaust – aided and abetted by a minority of rightist Ukrainians – the political (and in some cases ‘biological’) descendents of whom comprise the contemporary ‘Madan’ neo-Nazi government of Western Ukraine. All this anti-Socialist death and destruction is exactly the political policies that Trotsky advised his followers to embrace in 1938. A question worth asking is why the Trotskyite Movement today, remains entirely ‘free’ of any criticism from the bourgeois press. The answer, of course, is that the Trotskyites support capitalism, and are not averse to fascism, or fascist atrocity.

 

Mike Tyson on Poverty and Injustice

Capitalism exploits us all to various degrees, and in various ways. Many people live like Mike Tyson used to live – and still do – there has been no transformative miracle for them. However, even when successful as a world class boxer, people continued to exploit him – simply because that is the nature of brutal capitalism. Don King took Mike Tyson’s money – but never once earned that money by taking any of the punches in the ring. Mike Tyson is now still a very public figure – even in victory and in defeat. These videos express a deep and honest reality about the human condition.

The Pseudo-Science of ‘Dr’ Lissa Rankin – Publicity Over Common-Sense!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The woman in the video link below, is a con artist, possibly insane, and definitely criminal in intent. If you are ill and refuse modern medicine – then you will get worse and if the ailment is severe, you will die. This woman wants you to buy her book and she is willing to propagate a very dangerous New Age myth to convince you to part with your money. Further, as a White middle class woman, she has no respect for the working class, or understanding of their historical conditioning. She does not recognise that poor people are ill because they inherit bad health from their ancestors, and that the only way to eradicate this bad health amongst ordinary people is not to sit there lovingly staring at a crystal – but rather to instigate a system wide and free at the point of use healthcare system. This woman reminds me of those HIV-deniers who were diagnosed with HIV-AIDS and then went around earning a living on the lecture circuit ‘denying’ their diagnosis – until they finally died from the disease! This woman is catering to the rich by perpetuating the myth that will-power can heal illnesses – this is scientifically ridiculous. Modern medicine (or even ancient medicine) exists to cure human beings of their ailments. Positive thinking is fine for people with minor ailments, or who are perfectly healthy, but it is of no use to someone who is already ill and in a bad way. This is just a new form of ‘faith’ healing and should be avoided at all costs. Lissa Rankin has realised that she can earn more money from her rich, middle class clients by selling them a myth, than by treating them in the operating room. The way for society to advance, medicine must be developed to its highest degree, and administered ‘free’ to the populace. Rankin simply diverts away from being a GP to being an amateurish psycho-therapist talking bilge. Of course, as a beneficiary of the unequal and unfair capitalist system, Rankin is not interested in critiquing the capitalist system – which is the psycho-physical basis of ALL modern illnesses. This woman is making money out of other people’s suffering – end of story. Human beings eventually manage to fight-off certain ailments not through faith-healing, but through evolutionary development. Whatever the case, it is science that progresses humanity – and not wishful thinking. The mind does not heal the body – the body heals itself through cause and effect. Quite often changing the physical environment will alter the manner in which the body functions. The mind – being part of the physical body through the brain – is not separate from the body, but is part of the processes of that body. A peaceful environment creates a calm mind and a relaxed body. The mind can cognise and perceive, and allow the individual to pursue healthy lifestyles, or unhealthy lifestyles, but there is no legitimate scientific evidence that it can change physical chemistry by an ‘act of will’. Malfunctioning Body chemistry is altered by medicine, change of lifestyle habit, or change of environment, and nothing else. People get better because their body chemistry changes, and not because they think ‘nice’ thoughts.

MIND OVER MEDICINE

A Glimpse of the Murderous Nature of Capitalism!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Western wikipedia, of course, publishes ‘fake’ history about the Soviet Union that has no bearing to recorded history – but remains absolutely ‘silent’ about the very real and obvious crimes and excesses committed by the economic system we are all brain-washed to follow – called ‘capitalism’. Even though capitalism privileges the few over the many – the many unquestionably accept the lie that the many are privileged over the few, when everyday facts are clear, and speak for themselves. The crimes of capitalism are so immense and wide-ranging that I can only point-out a few aspects here. According to Russian demographic records – 5.8 million Russian people died between 1991-1999 – the first decade of capitalism in modern Russia. Of course, the biased Western media remains silent on this atrocity because ‘greed’ is more powerful than ‘caring’. I have also read that according to stats from the US – 7 million people have died since 2010 in the US due to the economic collapse and the US government’s response of ‘cutting’ budgets to relieve the tax burden on the rich. Of course, in the UK since 2010 (and the imposition of Tory and LibDem ‘Austerity’), the total numbers of poor and vulnerable people who have died remains unrecorded as a distinct category – but the UN Report of 2016 (that found the UK government ‘Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity’ for its despicable treatment of British Disabled people) – suggests a number between 10,000 and 80,000 – with the DWP releasing the death figures piece-meal so as to downplay the disastrous effects of this murderous policy and avoid rioting on British streets!

The Trotskyite Sharks Are Circling…

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Politicians of the British political left inhabit a strange world of having to present their leftwing beliefs, whilst constantly batting-off the allegation from the liberal and rightwing press of being ‘Marxists’, or worse still ‘Marxist-Leninists’. The term ‘Socialist’ is tolerated, but the related term of ‘Communist’ definitely is not. Not only does this position demonstrate a certain political illiteracy existing within the British media, but also highlights the fact that the Labour Party – originally founded by Socialists (later termed ‘Communists’) influenced by VI Lenin – has spent much of its existence treading the thin ideological line of purportedly naming itself after a key point of socio-economic analysis carried-out by Karl Marx, whilst simultaneously claiming to have ‘nothing to do’ with Communism. This bipolar existence has led to the Labour Party being infiltrated by Trotskyites – i.e. the followers of the deluded Leon Trotsky – at numerous times in its history, with the so-called ‘militant tendency’ probably being one of the most public expressions of this ‘entryism’. Trotskyites pretend to be ‘revolutionary’ in spirit, and even make use of revolutionary rhetoric, whilst working behind the scenes to attain political power and influence within a capitalist society, by collaborating with that very same capitalist system. Trotskyism, as a consequence, is full of contradictions and bourgeois sentiment designed to mislead the Working Class and divert it away from a truly ‘Marxist-Leninist’ revolution. This collaboration with capitalism and the Bourgeois State, the Trotskyites term ‘Socialism’, and mislead young and old alike into joining this or that ‘Socialist’ movement. This Trotskyite ‘Socialism’ is not ‘Socialism’, but rather a fake bourgeois counterfeit designed to retain the capitalist status quo – whist claiming to the gullible that it has been ‘over-thrown’. Prime examples of this Trotskyite distortion are the various incarnations of the Socialist Party, and the so-called Socialist Workers Party. As the Labour Party proscribes Communists from joining it, the Marxist-Leninist influence is either non-existant, or very well hidden. Many have suggested that ‘Momentum’ – which appears to exist to get Jeremy Corbyn into 10 Downing Street – is simply the latest (and more sophisticated) incarnation of the Trotskyite infiltration (i.e. ‘entryism’) into the Labour Party. As politicians acting within a liberal, democratic, capitalist setting cannot (and do not) advocate the over-throw of the Bourgeois State (and its oppressive capitalism) by the Working Class that suffer because of it, this compromise with Trotskyism dove-tales with ‘realistic’ political expectations premised upon short-term reformism. A politician like Jeremy Corbyn can be presented to appear as an ‘Everyman’, seeming to some to be a Marxist, to others a Trotskyite, and perhaps to a few a ‘Marxist-Leninist’. The point is that he is playing his hand very carefully to include as many people as possible, speaking at a Communist May Day Parade – whilst also serving to inspire the Trotskyite Socialist left. What he actually thinks is difficult to discern, as the one-thing a successful politician must never do in a capitalist system, is give-away exactly what he or she thinks. In the meantime, the Labour Party is being supported by some Marxist-Leninists and rejected by others, but is being universally supported by the Trotskyite ‘Socialist’ movement. This reality may serve to demonstrate the ‘feel’ of the Labour Party in general, and its ideological direction under Jeremy Corbyn inparticular. Why would some Marxist-Leninists support Labour? It can only be an ‘expedient’ move aimed to weaken the ruling classes and (temporarily) improve the living conditions of the Working Class (which has been suffering under a brutal Tory Austerity since 2010). Other Marxist-Leninists reject Labour out of hand, simply because of its Trotskyite tendencies, and unwillingness to ‘over-throw’ capitalism through a direct confrontation. The Trotskyites support Labour because they are quite happy with its collaboration with capitalism and see this very much as a completed ideological project. As a result, the up-turn in Labour’s fortunes is not as important for Marxist-Leninists as it is for Trotskyites, as all Marxist-Leninists know that the bourgeois political system is designed to repeat itself every decade or so, so that the rule of capital is maintained. For the Trotskyites, the assumed (coming) success of Labour will signify the end of a process, whilst the Marxist-Leninists understand that political success and failure within a bourgeois political system is part of an ongoing class antagonism and (historical) dialectical unfolding. This is why the Trotskyite sharks are circling Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, and looking forward to enjoying political power whilst wallowing in capitalist contradiction – the Marxist-Leninists, on the other hand, are working to dialectically finish capitalism off once and for all!

Supporting Leftwing Veganism but Rejecting Vegan Fascism and Intolerance

MarxPortrait-02

I am of the opinion that humanity treats animal life in a generally appalling manner, in one way or another, and that an effective (and moral) manner to confront the ruthless industrialised (capitalist) farming industry, is to refuse to eat meat and fish, drink dairy milk, or wear (or use) any products made from animal products. This is, of course, primarily a dietary response to the 24 hour slaughter industry in the West. There are vegans, vegetarians and a number of diets that ‘limit’ the intake of animal products. Within Chinese Buddhism (or that system which inspires my dietary habits) advocates a strict vegetarian diet for its followers. Ordained Monks and nuns eat a ‘vegan’ diet of plain rice and mixed vegetable, whilst drinking water, certain types of tea, and perhaps soya milk. Devout lay-followers within Chinese Buddhism is also expected to be a ‘vegetarian’, but within the Chinese language, and due to the ‘strictness’ of Chinese Buddhist moral rules, there is no distinction between ‘vegan’ and ‘vegetarian’. Of course, in the UK things are very different, with some so-called ‘Animal Rights’ groups openly engaged in the rhetoric of anti-Chinese racism, and intolerance toward other cultures, as well as some vegan associations (and individuals) actively attacking anyone who does not hold their righting views, or who do not follow their particular dietary habits. Of course, I do not mean to say that ‘everyone’ who is vegan is intolerant to vegetarians or meat-eaters, or routinely practises racism, but some do, advocating an aggressive policy of attack and demean. Furthermore, just because someone is a vegan it does not necessarily follow that they adhere to a leftwing political doctrine – as some vegans manifest a distinctly ‘fascistic’ attitude and behaviour, and can in no way be described as ‘Marxist’, or ‘Marxist-Leninist’. These people ma not eat meat or use animal products, but nevertheless are fully supportive of the destructive capitalist system. The point is that individuals control their own diets and behaviours, and it is completely counter-productive to attempt to ‘force’ people to follow a diet (or political doctrine) that they do not yet understand, or have no reason to follow. The only way to change people for the better is through a non-coercive educational process – and the use of a fascistic forcefulness.  Although I am a vegan-vegetarian, as a Marxist-Leninist, I am continuously striving to peacefully and politically transform the current ‘brutal’ and predatory capitalist system we currently live under as a means to free the British Working Class from the tyranny of bourgeois oppression. Eating meat in the modern era (as Marx Explains in Das Kapital I) is entirely premised upon the industrialisation of farming (prior to this, the European peasantry ate a mostly grain-related diet). Intolerant vegans must stop ‘attacking’ those who do not share their views, and understand that the true enemy of humanity (and animals) is the capitalist system.
