The collapse of the Soviet Union (between 1989 and 1991) was a tragedy not only for Russia and Eastern Europe, but also for humanity. I read a report on the Russian language internet which sated that between 1991 and 1999, it is recorded that the death-rate in Russia rose by 5.9 million – as Soviet provision was suddenly ‘withdrawn’ from society, Over-night all free education, medical care, welfare and working State support ceased – creating starvation and medical neglect – the likes of which had not been seen in Russia since the Nazi German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Although President Putin has provided some support and stability in ‘capitalist’ Russia, wide-spread poverty and deprivation remains the norm throughout the country. within capitalism, the will of the working people is ignored, whereas within Socialism, society is geared toward meeting all the collective needs of the working class. Today, in Russia, an affluent middle class has developed that gained its wealth by ‘stealing’ all the wealth accumulated over decades of hard work by the Workers’ State. As the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution draws near, Russia is once again being ravished by the brutal forces of predatory capitalism.

Paul Robeson: Communists Should Not Apologise!

Communist China’s Success and its Misinterpretation

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Production by the masses, the interests of the masses, the experiences and feelings of the masses – to these the leading cadres should pay constant attention.

Mao Zedong 8th Route Army Headquarters – Yenan – 24.11.1943

When it comes to emancipating our minds, using our heads, seeking truth from facts and uniting as one looking to the future, the primary task is to emancipate our minds. Only then can we, guided as we should be by Marxist-Leninist and Mao Zedong Thought, find correct solutions to emerging as well as inherited problems… Just imagine the additional wealth that could be created if all the people in China’s hundreds of thousands of enterprises and millions of production teams put their minds to work. As more wealth is created for the state, personal income and collective benefits should also increase somewhat… Otherwise, we won’t be able to rid our country of poverty and backwardness or to catch up with – still less surpass – the advanced countries.’ 

Deng Xiaoping – Emancipate the Mind, Seek Truth from Facts and Unite as One in Looking to the Future – 13.12.1978

Communist China is a Socialist State founded in late 1949. At that time, the Communist Party of China (led by Mao Zedong) over-threw the Western-supported government of Chiang Kai-Shek, eradicated feudalism and over-threw the bourgeoisie and the predatory capitalism they represented, and seized the means of production. Chiang Kai-Shek and his capitalists invaded the island of Taiwan and seized power there (committing many atrocities in the process), with the remnants of his US-supported regime still occupying that island today, with its exploitative class system still intact. Taiwan is the only part of Mainland China where US-style capitalism still holds sway. Within Taiwan, the small middle class dominates and oppresses the masses of workers – who are forced to eke-out a living in oppressive conditions – whilst this rogue regime is held together through US Christian missionary work (that converts the masses and turns them against Chinese culture by stating it is evil and backward), and by continuous US threats about invading Mainland China, or false US fears about Communist China invading Taiwan. This is the standard ‘divide and conquer’ tactics used by the Eurocentric forces of imperialism for centuries. Add to this the fact that the US government uses billions of dollars of its own tax-payer’s money to artificially prop-up Taiwan’s ‘false’ economy, and the true ‘fake’ status of Taiwan is revealed, showing it to be nothing but a US colony.

Every utility and business in China is ‘nationalised’ and owned by the Communist Chinese State. In other words, the Communist Party of China (CPC) – as the organised representative of the working class – having ceased full control of the means of production in 1949, now administers the entire business and service economy to benefit the people. All generated profit is immediately fed back into building a stronger and more efficient Workers’ State. This includes a fully comprehensive Welfare System, and free at the point of use National Health System. China uses both Western and Chinese medical systems provided free by the State. Science and technology is given unlimited funding to progress human understanding of the universe, and to develop advanced technology, medicines, treatments, communication systems, satellites and space travel. The Chinese legal system guarantees ‘equality’ throughout China, and unlike its bourgeois counter-part, a Chinese person receives full and free legal support. Communist China has rapidly developed both psychosocially and materiality since 1949, and has not only caught-up with the capitalist US, but is now surpassing this ruthless and capitalist country that uses its massive prison population as a form of slave labour.

The US has initiated a relentless anti-China campaign since 1949, bearing all the hall-marks of that country’s predictable ‘anti-Communist’ propaganda. Common accusations without any evidence include bizarre allegations that China is despotic, undemocratic, an invader of Tibet, a deceptive ‘capitalist’ country, and a dog-eating abuser of human rights, etc. What is remarkable about these views and many similar misrepresentations of China, is that they are shared equally across the Western political spectrum – both left and right. Underlying all these views are Eurocentric racist interpretations of the Chinese ethnicity, its political system, its history and its culture. These derogatory ideas about China are just as likely to manifest in India, as they are in the US, and often serve as the basis of both Western fascist and Communist critiques of China. The Western mainstream is just as racist as the fascist rightwing – but the Communist and Socialist left should know better. The problem with the left is that it has become riddled with Trotskyite racialised rhetoric that seeks to undermine any and all Marxist-Leninist regimes. Trotskyism dove-tales nicely with fascist ideology and is nothing but a racist misrepresentation of the leftwing perspective. Trotskyism also serves as the basis for the British Labour Party leftism – with even Jeremy Corbyn criticising China’s Yulin Dog Festival in Parliament in 2015 – with no Chinese-based evidence informing his views. This is the same Labour Leader who says nothing in Parliament about 24 hour slaughter houses in the UK, etc.

Communist understanding should be a continuous process of dialectic development and should not be stuck in the past, or congeal around a set of dogmatic ideals. When a Communist government seizes control of the means of production, capitalism is over-thrown with exploitative capitalist market forces replaced by working class representative Socialist market forces. Whereas in the former all profit is concentrated into the hands of a small and privileged group, in the latter all profit is radically re-distributed throughout society to directly benefit the majority of the ordinary people.  Obviously China has rejected the former and embraced the latter. Today, China seeks to master and over-come the Western capitalist system by learning its method from a Socialist perspective, and turning its method against the capitalists. The Western powers dominated China for hundreds of years and in that time ruthlessly exploited its people and stole its considerable wealth – leaving China thoroughly impoverished by 1911. By engaging the capitalists and beating them at their own game does not make China a ‘capitalist’ country – as even the USSR traded with the capitalist West. What it demonstrates is not the failure of Marxist-Leninist ideology, but rather its success. In just over 60 years, a backward and impoverished country has been completely transformed through the leadership of the Communist Party of China. This fact flies in the face of the false US propaganda that Socialism equals poverty. What capitalists and fascists either conveniently forget, or just do not know, is that Karl Marx stated that Socialism (and then Communism) emerge out of a very well developed and successful capitalist system – he never taught that Socialism is ‘anti-capitalist’. Marxists are anti-bourgeois and anti-exploitation, but they take economic market forces and re-define their uses so that society is benefited rather than oppressed. In 1949, 90% of China’s population were impoverished and illiterate – today, after just over 60 years of CPC guidance, this situation has been completely reversed, with 90% of the population being able to read and write, and live a life of greatly improved economic circumstances.

Only Communists Truly Oppose Racism!

Soviet poster – Смерть немецко-фашистским разбойникам! (1944 год) – Death to the German fascist robbers! (1944)!

Fascism, racism and White supremacy have their roots in capitalism. As long as capitalism functions unquestioned – racism will continue to exist from one generation to the next. Liberals pass laws designed to curb the more obvious and extreme manifestations of racism – but do nothing about the capitalism from which the roots of racism emerge. The capitalist division of labour is the basis of racism, because it is the basis of selfish competitiveness (designed to maximise profit). Competing as individuals and competing as groups is why racism exists. Trotskyites make a fuss about confronting the outer aspects of racism – but remain silent and impotent in the face of the rampant capitalism that generates capitalism. To be a ‘true’ anti-fascist and anti-racist is to be simultaneously an anti-capitalist. Your flag will be ‘Red’ and your country will be the ‘future’. All other anti-racist protests are just more bourgeois noise of little, or no consequence.

How Labour’s (2017) General Election Defeat Continues to Haunt the Ordinary British People

The rightwing Tories represent the corporate establishment – that is middle and upper class cultural and business interests. This includes the non-payment of personal and corporate tax, and the rejection of any form of re-distributing wealth amongst the Working Class. in-short – the Tories represent a complete and total rejection of any form of Socialism and empowerment of the ordinary workers within a capitalist society. The Labour Party has not advocated Class Revolution since the early years of its inception (in the late 19th century), and even then such calls were half-hearted. When Socialist Members of the Labour Party renamed themselves ‘Communists’ around 1921 (in solidarity with Lenin’s Russian Revolution), they were expelled from the Labour Party – never to be re-admitted. This is why Labour’s call for Socialism remains thoroughly bourgeois in nature, and amounts to a collaboration with the forces of capitalism – rather than its over-throw. Even with this substantial compromise, however, the Conservative Party will not even consider what amounts to a ‘minor’ and downward re-distribution of wealth that would leave the capitalist system intact, and class privilege firmly in place. To this end the Tories are busy carrying-out two broad policies to prevent Jeremy Corbyn becoming a ‘Socialist’ Prime Minister: 1) mimicking certain peripheral Labourite policies (in an attempt to take votes away from Labour), and b) continuing unabated (and in an accelerated fashion) to ‘privatise’ the NHS and dismantle the Welfare State (inaccordance with EU legislation). As these services are cut, the tax-burden is not reduced, but continues to increase and be gathered by a bourgeois government that is re-distributing wealth in an ‘upward’ direction (through tax-cuts) – making the wealthier even richer in a manner that is quite pointless to the health of the British nation. In the meantime, the Tory government is using this ‘stolen’ wealth (paid for by the Working Class), to rage imperialist wars in support of US neo-colonial foreign policies (generally in securing oil supplies and revenue). What a despicable political party these Tories represent – which will not even allow a highly compromised version of Labourite Socialism to make life at least ‘tolerable’ for the majority of ordinary people in the UK – whilst the rich continue to live their lives of debauchery and excess.

Joseph Stalin Reconstructed – an Interview with Yakov Dzhugashvili (2013)

‘The lies about Stalin are an attempt by the current elites

to justify the plundering of Soviet heritage.’

Yakov Dzhugashvili (Great Grandson of Stalin)

Interview between Dmitry Fakowski & Yakov Dzhugashvili

Lies Like a Virus

Dmitry Fakowski: Are you annoyed and frustrated with all the anti-Stalin hysteria prevalent in the global media today?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Lies offend me, and I expose these lies with all the means at my disposal, whilst trying to convey the truth to the people. Stalinization is the education of people – an explanation of what Joseph Stalin wanted to do and what he managed to do, including an assessment of who resisted his reforms and why. Without exposing the prevalent lies about Joseph Stalin (and the distorted history of the USSR of that period), no correct understanding of Stalinization is possible. Today, Joseph Stalin is dear to everyone with correct understanding, and for whom such words as Justice, motherland, and the people are not empty.

The fact is that the lies about Joseph Stalin (and the USSR of that period) were created with the aim of undermining the authority of the leader of the country, so that any attempt to comprehend the nature of the real phenomena that occurred during his life (and the important role he played in these events) is rejected by the people. These lies are not just directed against Joseph Stalin or his relatives, but, above all, are against the integrity of the Russian people. Lies about Stalin try to deprive the Russians (and, with them, those nations that together with the Russians built the world’s first society free from capitalist parasites) the ability to resist both external and internal threats. The lies about Joseph Stalin are a virus created by the inhuman fascists, as a means to destroy the defensive mechanism of the people, together with the ability to even recognise the existence or presence of a danger. Finally, the lies about him are an attempt by the current elites to justify the looting of the progressive material, cultural and spiritual wealth accumulated through the collective hard labour of the Soviet people.

Georgian Youth do not Know the Russian Language.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Georgia, do the people remember Joseph Vissarionovich with love and respect?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The attitude of the people toward Joseph Stalin in his homeland today, is determined by their awareness of the leader of the country, and about the history of the USSR of that period. These are the two most deplorable topics, and to understand them you need to have access to specific literature, but this literature is written mostly in the Russian language. The contemporary powers in Georgia have been eradicating Russian language from Georgia for almost a decade now, and have achieved ‘effective’ results in this area. This deliberate eradication of the Russian language now means that the younger generation cannot read, write or speak Russian. But even that part of the population that is fluent in the Russian language (and does not consider it ‘the language of the occupiers’) and which continues to get involved in world culture through the Russian language media, is not particularly interested in the topic of Stalinism. Most Georgians today, do not even have a desire to deal with these issues, as they are overwhelmed by their extremely unhappy material situation (since the disastrous collapse of Communism). This includes the monstrous racist anti-Soviet and anti-Russian and anti-Stalin propaganda, which pours around the clock from two dozen TV channels in Georgia which serve just four million people – two dozen channels! It is necessary to have a stable psyche and have a serious motivation in order not to lose heart and resist in such conditions. Therefore, we must admit that in Georgia the Stalinists do not influence the mood and consciousness of the people in any significant way at the moment. Despite such a sad state of affairs, the positive image of Joseph Stalin (in articles, comments and observations) remains strong – like a powerful ray of light piercing the minds and hearts of the people, forcing them to think about this great man and his progressive deeds.

Reviving the Just Reputation of Stalin without Violence.

Dmitry Fakowski: Do you possess a Russian passport?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I am a citizen of Russia, and moreover, I am a member of a political pressure group, pushing for the holding of a Referendum on the adoption of ‘Amendments’ to the Constitution (and Law) in modern Russia, regarding the ‘Responsibility of the Authorities’ toward the well-being of the people. This is effectively a change in Law.

Dmitry Fakowski: What is the essence of these proposed new Laws?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Life is arranged unfairly throughout modern Russia. This is an important observation, as injustice emanates from the centre of political power. Power can be unjust because it has the potential and opportunity to be unjust, if not tempered by specific Laws that prevent this degeneration. How is political and social justice to be achieved without revolutionary violence? This is easier than it might seem, but first there is a need to get to the root of injustice within the political power structure. Why do the authorities (and their minions) do anything in power? Because they are in no way responsible for the results of their government – they are not punished for the harm done to the people. Why should this be the case? If a driver causes an accident by chance, he or she will be punished, but the authorities do not answer for anything, regardless of what they do (or do not do)! Is this fair? A ‘Referendum’ is needed whereby the people will be asked to decide (through voting) whether the ‘old’ (Soviet) Law (which held politicians directly responsible for their actions whilst in office) is ‘preferable’ to the ‘new’ (Liberal) Law of capitalist Russia (where politicians are not held responsible for their actions whilst In office). If voters prefer the ‘new’ style of government over the ‘old’, then they must answer three further questions which will decide whether the modern behaviour of politicians should be ‘encouraged’, ‘punished’, or be ‘without consequences’. If the voters fully reject the ‘old’ (Soviet) power structure, then the modern system can remain without any change or consequence (and politicians will remain unaccountable for their actions). If the ‘new’ system is positively encouraged, then the President and every Member of the Federal Assembly will be considered a Hero of Russia, and their behaviour will have been vindicated by popular vote. If the voters decide to ‘Punish’ (obviously over specific issues), then the President or any Member of the Federal Assembly could be immediately imprisoned for their actions, over the duration of their time in office.

Dmitry Fakowski: How will the judging be carried-out?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The (democratic) power of each individual voter will serve exclusively as the ‘judging’ principle, assessing each case separately and entirely upon its positive or negative merits. Each voter will exercise his or her free-will and judgement at the ballot-box. In order for the verdict to be objective, voters need to ask themselves a simple question: has their life improved, deteriorated or has not changed during the period of the government’s rule. It is agreed that this question can be answered by any voter, regardless of his or her education, or cultural level, etc. We citizens take upon ourselves the responsibility to obey the authorities for five years – but at the end of this five year time period – we will judge the authorities on the results of their behaviour in office whilst we were legally subjugated to their rule. This is justice!

The Katyn Case.

Dmitry Fakowski: You have paid special attention to the Katyn case.

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Not so long ago, the Tverskoi Court of Moscow indirectly confirmed that the Germans had shot the Polish officers in 1941. The result of this trial within the State Duma was sensational. No, the suit was denied, but in its decision the judge wrote in black and white twice that the Poles in Katyn were shot in September 1941, by the Nazi Germans (that were occupying the area at the time). This is a great victory! This is no longer a matter of speculative (or ‘Cold War’) distorted  journalism, but rather a matter of common knowledge as established in legal fact, and drawn-up in a document issued by the Courts. I congratulate all honest people. Most importantly, I think honest Poles, for this victory! I advise all the scoundrels, including the Polish ones, to stock-up with validol (an anti-depressant).

Dmitry Fakowski: Who helped you fight during this process?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: In 2009, the publicist Leonid Nikolayevich Zhura contacted me and asked my father (Yevgeny Yakovlevich) to allow him to file a suit to protect the honour and dignity of Joseph Stalin. The suit was filed against the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, because of the publication of an article by Anatoly Yablokov entitled ‘Beria is guilty’. According to the Laws of Russia, only Joseph Stalin’s relative has the right to file such a claim. My father agreed, and Leonid Zhura became the official representative of my father in Court on this case. However, my father found it necessary that his representative, along with Leonid Nikolayevich, should also include Yury Mukhin (www.ymuhin.ru), who was sick and at the hospital, at the beginning of the trial. (The fact that this happened to him is a separate and almost tragic story). Then they were joined by Sergei Emilyevich Strygin, the author of an independent investigation into the Katyn tragedy. For the last three years, this trio has been successfully combatting and suitably horrifying all those ‘fighters against Stalinism’, and were awaiting such a time that they could fulfil their dream of getting these despicable people into a Court of Law! Were these enemies of Joseph Stalin demanding a trial to prove their case? We thought this was excellent, as these people could not prove their case in Court – because their ideas were just lies presented as fact. This has been the case in endless trials in the past, where the real facts were produced, proving the Cold War assertions to be thoroughly false. This track record showed the utter helplessness of the accusers of Joseph Stalin. Unlike the studios of the radio stations Ekho Moskvy, or the editorial office of Novaya Gazeta, in Court our opponents were forced to answer for their lies. Our representatives actively assisted in this, asking different questions, to which these liars were obliged to respond, as required by Law. Historians conducted an amazing work of considerable scale to expose the lies about Joseph Stalin and the history of the USSR. Yuri Mukhin, despite his extreme workload (he also pursued two criminal cases at the same time on the ‘Russian’ article due to its extremism) and despite requiring heart surgery that had to be postponed, managed on the day of the meeting (or immediately afterwards) to write exhaustive reports about what was happening there. Now, these reports are combined into a book entitled ‘The trial of Stalin’. I note that the media, both official and allegedly oppositional, kept amicable silence about these processes. Even Ekho Moskvy and Novaya Gazeta preferred to remain silent, although they were direct participants in the Court.

Dmitry Fakowski: You had a high-profile trial against Vladimir Pozner?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I was able to personally attend to this process, and had the ‘happiness’ to see this guru of ‘TV-boltology’ in the immediate vicinity. Ironically, the process took place on December 21st – the birthday of Joseph Stalin. The bottom line is this: Vladimir Pozner, in his traditional line at the end of one of the broadcasts, accused Joseph Stalin of the execution of Polish officers in Katyn. When he learned about the lawsuit, he said on the air at Ekho Moskvy, that he was ready to prove in Court the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the shooting of the Poles (which he mistakenly thought was ‘documented’). Arriving at the Court session, accompanied by two lawyers (one of whom was clearly on friendly terms with the judge), he laid out – on the table – two of four documents from the most famous folder of fakes in the Katyn case. The judge reacted immediately, and made it clear that these document were not historically valid, and should be ‘hidden’ far away and forgotten about by him. Following this disastrous start, Vladimir Pozner’s case fell apart, and along with his ‘forgotten’ documents – his terrible promises to reveal the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the execution of the Poles, also disappeared. Instead, he began to defend his constitutional right to spread gossip, (i.e. – personal opinion as ‘fact’). I note that all the ‘fighters against Stalinism’ in the trials, instead of giving specific arguments in favour of their statements, were engaged precisely in upholding their right to spreading (false) personal opinions. During one of the breaks, there was a dispute with Vladimir Pozner about the ‘documents’ brought to court. It became clear that this was the first time he had seen these papers in his life. Moreover, he had never even heard that these papers were fakes. What does it mean? This means that Vladimir Pozner, knowing about the subject of the upcoming Court dispute, and having at least two weeks in Court at his disposal, did not even deign to spend at least an hour of his time and ‘google’ this topic on the Internet. So, for example, my comment on one of the ‘documents’, namely, ‘Beria’s letter’: or ‘Could Lavrenti Beria have ordered something’, and with regards to troika power-sharing – he could have searched ‘in 1940, if the troika were abolished in 1938?’, Vladimir Pozner had done none of this and could only blurt out: ‘Perhaps’ when questioned in Court – acting like a guru with (imagined) telepathic powers!

Stalin the Movie

Dmitry Fakowski: What do you think about the western-style film about Joseph Stalin, to be shot by Alexei Balabanov?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: He promised to make a film about my great-grandfather, stating ‘one of the heroes’ of the picture will be Joseph Stalin, which would portray Stalin not as an idol in the years of his youth – but rather as a bandit, a thief and renegade from the (Czarist) Law. Was he really a thief running from the Law? It is not proven that he personally participated in the robberies – but it is also not proved that he did not participate. However, this kind of nonsense is not politically relevant or historically accurate. Joseph Stalin was not a Western-style gun-slinger (in a Hollywood movie), but was a great Revolutionary leader. We must be careful because all great lies have a firm basis in small, foundational lies. If lies are told about Joseph Stalin – it does not insult me ​​personally. This is rather the humiliation of the entire Russian people, who (through Stalin’s leadership) built a powerful industrial country in the shortest time, won a vicious war against a fascist army led by Nazi Germany – but which was comprised of armies from many other European countries (after all, Hitler had many allies in the world). Finally, such lies about Stalin insult the very Soviet people that conquered space.

Fabrication of the ‘Holodomor’ Famine.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Ukraine, the anti-Stalin policy focuses on the famine of 1932-1933 …

Yakov Dzhugashvili: This is what Professor Grover Furr says in his book covering ‘61 of Khrushchev’s lies’: ‘In the 1930s, Ukrainian nationalists (with the help of Nazi Germans) began fabricating the so-called ”Holodomor” famine’. Now, the late Canadian researcher Douglas Tottle proves this in his book “Lies, Hunger and Fascism: The Myth of the Ukrainian Genocide from Hitler to Harvard” (1987). I read an article in 1987 in which he debunked the lies of Ukrainian nationalists, I was amazed at what Douglas Tottle wrote and went to Toronto, Canada, to meet with him. In 1988, American journalist Jeff Coplon, interviewed him (along with others) for his article ‘In Search of the Soviet Holocaust: A Hunger 55 Years Ago’. A lie about the so-called ‘Holodomor’ is necessary for Ukrainian nationalists to justify their co-operation with the Nazis – and the killing of millions of their compatriots, (including Jews). These fascists killed up to 100,000 Polish citizens during the so-called Volyn massacre. Polish researchers Vladislav and Eva Semashko, Ukrainian-Canadian researcher Viktor Polishchuk and Russian historian Alexander Dyukov – all precisely document this massacre. In order to justify even a small part of these crimes, nationalists must insist that the USSR was worse than the Nazis and Ukrainian nationalists, and that there is nothing worse than Communism – stating that virtually ‘anything else would be better’. Similarly false stories about Soviet atrocities are also propagated by the right-wing nationalists of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Usually they are based on sources of Nazi propaganda, which are most often simply reprinted. The ‘Historical Memory’ Foundation of Alexander Dyukov publishes works on the topic of these falsifications.

The great grandson of Joseph Stalin is sure that the exposure of anti-Stalin lies is necessary not only for the restoration of historical justice, but also for restoring to our (Slavic) peoples a protective mechanism that shields us against dangerous ideological aggressions, because the knowledge of our history grants us the ability to distinguish lies from the truth, the original from the fake. This truth about the USSR and Joseph Stalin is one of the foundations that builds such a protective mechanism – which benefits the well-being of the people.

Яков Джугашвили: Ложь о Сталине – попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление советского наследия (2013)

Источник: stalingrad-info.ru

Правнук Иосифа Сталина – художник и общественный деятель Яков Джугашвили – рассказал, почему продолжит бороться за правду о своём великом прадеде, заявив прямо:  Коба нужен нам и сегодня.

Ложь как вирус

— Антисталинская истерия, царящая сегодня в глобальных СМИ, Вас сильно напрягает?

— Ложь меня оскорбляет, и я эту ложь всеми имеющимися у меня средствами разоблачаю и пытаюсь донести до людей правду. Сталинизация – это просвещение людей, объяснение того, что хотел сделать Иосиф Сталин, что ему удалось сделать, кто и почему сопротивлялся его реформам. Без разоблачения лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР того периода невозможна никакая сталинизация. Сегодня Иосиф Сталин дорог всем, для кого такие слова, как Справедливость, Отечество, Народ — не пустые звуки.

Дело в том что, ложь об Иосифе Сталине и СССР того периода создавалась с целью подрыва авторитета лидера страны, чтобы людей отталкивала любая попытка осмыслить природу явлений произошедших в период его жизни и его роль в этих событиях. Эта ложь направлена не против Иосифа Сталина или его родственников, а, в первую очередь, против Русского народа. Ложью о нём пытаются лишить Русских (а вместе с ними и те народы, которые вместе с Русским строили первое в мире общество свободное от паразитов) способности противостоять как внешним, так и внутренним угрозам. Ложь об Иосифе Сталине — это созданный недочеловеками вирус, разрушающий защитный механизм народа, ответственный за распознавание опасности. Наконец, ложь о нём — это попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление того добра, которое было сохранено и приумножено Советским народом, – говорит Яков Джугашвили.

Грузинская молодежь не знает русского языка

— В Грузии Иосифа Виссарионовича помнят, любят?

— Отношение людей к Иосифу Сталину у него на родине сегодня определяется их информированностью о лидере страны и о СССР того периода. Это две самые оболганные темы, и чтобы разобраться в них нужно иметь доступ к специфической литературе, а эта литература в основном русскоязычная. Власть в Грузии вот уже почти десять лет вытесняет из Грузии русский язык и добилась «неплохих» результатов в этом деле: молодое поколение практически не знает русский язык. Но даже та часть населения, которая не считает его «языком оккупантов» и продолжает приобщаться к мировой культуре посредством русского языка, не особо интересуется темой сталинизма. У большинства грузин сегодня нет даже желания разбираться с этими вопросами, так как они подавлены своим крайне нерадостным материальным положением, а также той чудовищной по своей подлости антисоветской (а по сути — антирусской) и антисталинской пропагандой, которая льётся с ТВ, а в Грузии на четыре миллиона человек — два десятка каналов! Надо обладать устойчивой психикой и иметь серьёзную мотивацию, чтобы в таких условиях не унывать и сопротивляться. Поэтому, надо признать, что в Грузии сталинисты никак не влияют на настроение и сознание народа. Несмотря на столь грустное положение дел, положительный образ Иосифа Сталина — в статьях, репликах, — подобно мощному лучу света пронзает умы и сердца людей, заставляя их задуматься об этом человеке и его делах.

Как возродить сталинскую справедливость без насилия

— У Вас есть российский паспорт?

— Я – гражданин России, более того – участник инициативной группы по проведению референдума по принятию поправок к Конституции и закона об «Ответственности власти» в обеспечение этих поправок.

— В чём их суть?

— Жизнь устроена несправедливо. И несправедливость идет от власти. Власть несправедлива потому, что у нее есть возможность быть несправедливой. Как достичь справедливости без революционного насилия? Это просто, но нужно зреть в корень этой несправедливости власти. Почему члены власти и их приспешники творят во власти всё, что угодно? Потому, что они никак не отвечают за результаты своего правления — никак не наказываются за вред, нанесенный народу. Водителя за аварию, которая произошла по случайности, накажут, а власть ни за что не отвечает, что бы она ни натворила! Разве это справедливо? Нужен закон, согласно которому на всех выборах каждый избиратель кроме бюллетеней с новым составом власти получит проект вердикта старому, сменяемому составу власти, а в этом вердикте будет три строчки: «Достойна поощрения», «Достойна наказания» и «Без последствий». Если большинство избирателей решит отпустить старый состав власти без последствий, то власть оставит свои полномочия как сейчас — без последствий для себя. Если большинство избирателей решит поощрить власть, то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания станет Героем России. А если избиратели решат «Достойна наказания», то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания сядут в тюрьму на срок своего пребывания у власти.

— Как будем судить?

— Судить власть каждый избиратель будет исключительно из собственного убеждения в ее вине и заслугах. А для того чтобы вердикт был объективным, от избирателей требуется ответить самим себе на простой вопрос: улучшилась, ухудшилась или не изменилась их жизнь за период правления данной власти. Согласитесь, что на этот вопрос сможет ответить любой избиратель, вне зависимости от его образования, культурного уровня и т.п. Мы, граждане, берём на себя ответственность подчиняться власти, но раз в пять лет мы будем судить власть за результаты этого нашего ей подчинения. Вот это и есть справедливость!

Катынское дело

— Особое внимание Вы уделяете Катынскому делу.

— Не так давно Тверской суд Москвы косвенно подтвердил, что польских офицеров в 1941 году расстреляли немцы. Итог суда с Государственной Думой оказался сенсационным. Нет, в иске было отказано, но в своём решении судья чёрным по белому дважды написала, что поляков в Катыни расстреляли в сентябре 1941 года, т.е. — немцы. Это большая победа! Это уже не публицистика, а документ, в котором общеизвестность этого факта установлена в судебном порядке. Я поздравляю всех честных людей. И, главное, честных поляков, с этой победой! А всем подлецам, в том числе и польским, советую запастись валидолом.

— Кто Вам помогает бороться на процессе?

— В 2009 году со мной связался публицист Леонид Николаевич Жура и попросил, чтобы мой отец Евгений Яковлевич разрешил ему подать иск о защите чести и достоинства Иосифа Сталина. Иск был подан к «Новой газете» за публикацию статьи Анатолия Яблокова «Виновным назначен Берия». По законам России подобный иск имеет право подавать только родственник Иосифа Сталина. Мой отец согласился, и Леонид Жура стал официальным представителем отца в суде по этому делу. Однако отец счёл обязательным, чтобы его представителем вместе с Леонидом Николаевичем был и Юрий Мухин (www.ymuhin.ru), который к началу процесса был болен и лежал в больнице. (То, что с ним там приключилось — отдельная история, едва не закончившаяся для него трагически). Затем к ним присоединился Сергей Эмильевич Стрыгин — автор независимого расследования Катынской трагедии. Вот эта тройка уже несколько лет наводит ужас на «борцов со сталинизмом» всего лишь тем, что «осуществляет их мечту!» Они ведь требуют суда над Иосифом Сталиным? Вот вам суд, приходите и доказывайте его «преступления». Судебные процессы показали полную беспомощность обвинителей Иосифа Сталина. В отличие от студии радиостанции «Эхо Москвы» или кабинета редактора «Новой Газеты», в суде наши оппоненты вынуждены были отвечать за свою болтовню. Наши представители им в этом активно помогали, задавая разные вопросы, на которые они были обязаны отвечать, как того и требует законодательство. Историки провели удивительную по своему масштабу работу по разоблачению лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР. Юрий Мухин, несмотря на крайнюю загруженность (на него самого заведено два уголовных дела по «русской» статье за экстремизм) и перенесённую операцию на сердце, умудрялся в день заседания или сразу после писать исчерпывающие репортажи о том, что там происходило. Сейчас эти репортажи объединены в книгу под названием «Суд над Сталиным». Замечу что СМИ, как официальные, так и якобы оппозиционные, хранили дружное молчание об этих процессах. Даже «Эхо Москвы» и «Новая Газета» предпочли молчать, хотя они были непосредственными участниками суда.

— У Вас был громкий процесс против журналиста Владимира Познера.

— Я смог присутствовать на этом процессе, и имел «счастье» лицезреть этого «гуру ТВ-болтологии» в непосредственной близости. По иронии судьбы, процесс состоялся 21 декабря — в день рождения Иосифа Сталина. Суть вот в чем: Владимир Познер в своей традиционной реплике в конце одной из передач обвинил Иосифа Сталина в расстреле польских офицеров в Катыни. Когда он узнал об иске, то в эфире «Эха Москвы» заявил, что готов доказать в суде причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков документально. Придя на заседание суда в сопровождении двух юристов (одна из которых была явно на дружеской ноге с судьёй), он выложил на стол два из четырех документов из той самой знаменитой папки фальшивок по Катынскому делу. Судья отреагировала сразу же, и дала понять, чтобы этот документ спрятали куда подальше и забыли о нём. Владимир Познерзабыл об этом «документе», как забыл и о своих грозных обещаниях документально доказать причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков. Вместо этого он стал отстаивать своё конституционное право на болтовню, т.е. — личное мнение. Замечу, что все «борцы со сталинизмом» на судебных процессах вместо того, чтобы приводить конкретные доводы в пользу своих утверждений, занимались именно отстаиванием своего права на личное мнение. Во время одного из перерывов произошёл спор с Владимиром Познером относительно принесённых им в суд «документов». Стало ясно, что он видел эти бумажки впервые в жизни. Более того, он никогда даже не слышал о том, что эти бумажки являются фальшивками. Что это значит? А это значит, что Владимир Познер, зная о теме предстоящего судебного спора и имея до начала суда, как минимум, две недели в своём распоряжении, даже не соизволил потратить хотя бы час своего времени и «погуглить» эту тему в Интернете. Так, например, на моё замечание по поводу одного из «документов», а именно «письма Берии»: «Мог ли Лаврентий Берия приказать что-то «тройке» в 1940 году, если тройки были упразднены ещё в 1938 году?», Владимир Познер выпалил: «Мог!» Одно слово — «гуру».

— Как Вы относитесь к вестерну об Иосифе Сталине, который собирается сниматьАлексей Балабанов?

— Он пообещал снять фильм о моём прадеде, заявив, что «одним из героев картины станетИосиф Сталин, предстающий уже окончательно развенчанным идолом в годы юности – бандитом, вором в законе. Он на самом деле был вор в законе – не доказано, что он лично участвовал в ограблениях. Но и не доказано, что не участвовал. Поэтому я могу и так, и так это сделать». Я бы хотел подчеркнуть, что ложь об Иосифе Сталине – это не оскорбление нас, родственников. Она не оскорбляет лично меня. Это – унижение русского народа, построившего за кратчайшие сроки мощную индустриальную страну, выигравшего Войну у армии всей Европы (ведь на стороне Германии воевали не только немцы). Наконец, народа, покорившего в космос.

Фабрикация “голодомора”

— На Украине в антисталинской политике основной акцент делается на голоде 1932-1933 годов…

— Вот что говорит профессор Гровер Фер автор книги «61 Неправда Хрущёва»: «В 1930-х годах украинские националисты с помощью нацистов начали фабрикацию так называемого “голодомора”. Ныне покойный канадский исследователь Дуглас Тотл (Douglas Tottle) доказывает это в своей книге «Ложь, Голод и Фашизм: Миф об украинском геноциде от Гитлера до Гарварда» (Fraud, Famine and Fascism: The Ukraiinian Genocide Myth from Hitler to Harvard (1987). Я еще в 1987 году прочитал статью, в которой тот развенчал ложь украинских националистов. Я был поражен тем, что Дуглас Тотл написал, и поехал в Торонто (Канада), чтобы встретиться с ним. В 1988 году американский журналист Джефф Коплон (Jeff Coplon) взял у него и других интервью для статьи «В поисках советского холокоста: Голод 55-летней давности кормит Правых» ( In Search of a Soviet Holocaust: A 55-Year-Old Famine Feeds the Right). Украинским националистам ложь о так называемом “голодоморе” необходима чтобы оправдать своё сотрудничество с нацистами и убийство ими миллионов своих соотечественников, включая евреев. Они убили до 100 000 польских граждан во время так называемой Волынской резни. Польские исследователи Владислав и Ева Семашко (Wladyslaw and Ewa Siemaszko), украино-канадский исследователь Виктор Полищук и российский историк Александр Дюков документируют эту резню. Для того, чтобы оправдать хотя бы малую часть этих преступлений, националистам необходимо настаивать на том, что СССР был хуже, чем нацисты и украинские националисты, причём был таким плохим, что ничего хуже, чем коммунизм нет и «всё остальное было бы лучше». Подобные лжеистории о советских зверствах также пропагандируются правыми националистами Эстонии, Латвии, и Литвы. Обычно они основаны на источниках нацистской пропаганды, которые чаще всего просто перепечатывают. Фонд «Историческая Память» Александра Дюкова публикует работы по теме этих фальсификаций.

Правнук Иосифа Сталина уверен, что разоблачение антисталинской лжи необходимо не только для восстановления исторической справедливости, но и для того, чтобы вернуть нашим народам защитный механизм оберегающий нас от опасных идеологических агрессий, ведь знание своей истории, умение отличать ложь от правды, подлинник от фальшивки – одна из основ такого защитного механизма народа.

Misconceptions About Non-Violence

I recently read a post written by someone who was eulogising Nelson Mandela as ‘non-violent’ and comparing him to Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi. I consider these kinds of statements as being the product of political illiteracy and a general lack of education that blights how liberals perceive the left. The great Nelson Mandela was a Communist who took-up an armed struggle against the White Afrikaans Government of South Africa and its poisonous ‘apartheid’ system of brutal and vicious racial segregation. South African Black people faced the possibility of arrest, torture and death at anytime, and not necessarily in that order. The right for the ordinary South African Black people to take up arms against the Afrikaans government was not only morally right, it was supported by international law. Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for decades because of his involvement in this self-defensive violence. At his trial, he denied being a member of the Communist Party as a means to avoid the Death Sentence that many racist Whites (both inside and outside the Afrikaans System) were demanding (including Britain’s Margaret Thatcher). Nelson Mandela was eventually proven politically correct, with his historical use of violence accepted as both justified and appropriate.

Dr Martin Luther King Jr was a Christian who did emphasis and practice love and compassion for all, However, this is not the entire story. It is well known on the left that Dr King was an ardent Socialist and sympathetic to the Communist Cause. When confronting the oppressive (White) power of the US Authorities, Dr King was of the opinion that there was little point in offering anykind of violent or armed resistance due to the sheer and deadly power of that System. Although he agreed with protest and civil disobedience where justified, he did not advocate any action that constituted ‘self-defence’. Dr King stated that his followers should go to prison and through their enlightened attitudes, turn a dungeon of darkness into a haven of light. It seems that Dr King was of the impression that Christian Socialists would be ‘protected’ by the secular Socialist or Communist Movement in the USA, and that this protection would enable them to act in a more Christ-like manner. Therefore, Christians could be ‘passive’ and ‘non-violent’, providing others were willing to use violence to protect their religious practice.

Mahatma Gandhi was certainly not a pacifist, despite his preference for apparent non-violence. In fact, in a number of discourses in India, Mahatma Gandhi has been described as deliberately pursuing a destructive path of ‘militant non-violence’. To achieve this, the Western educated Gandhi would order his followers to gather in areas that he knew would antagonise the British Authorities in India, and which through a blend of noisy protest and non-co-operation, encourage those Authorities to react with State ordered violence – using armed police and soldiers to attack his protesters. Although Gandhi would often lead long marches, he seldom stood in the front lines when the bone-breaking and skull-crushing of his followers commenced. When viewed in this manner, it is clear that Gandhi was a very violent person, who used a passive-aggressive approach to protest, a method which he justified through Hindu Scripture. Whilst advocating non-violence, Gandhi made extensive use of violence – creating death and injury amongst his followers – which he used to make political gain against the British and his Indian opponents (Gandhi was eventually murdered by a fellow Hindu). India gained its Independence from the British not because of Gandhi (a myth perpetuated in the West), but because the British Labour Party of 1945-1950 wanted to instigate a Welfare state and National Health System on the British Mainland. The financing of these revolutionary changes were recouped in-part by cutting the direct colonial control of India by the British.

Taking Rights Away to ‘Protect’ Citizens is Nothing but Fascism!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Terrorism is a historical issue, emanating from many different and distinct socio-economic conditions. It is also a highly ‘subjective’ issue that is used to demonise particular groups, political movements and religions, by those national governments and State Authorities that view their own military activities around the world to be ‘lawful’ and to exist ‘outside’ of the usual definition of ‘terrorism’. States that do not consider their otherwise highly destructive military actions against other groups to be ‘terrorism’, include the United States, the UK and Israel. Other countries on this list might include Saudi Arabia and (neo-Nazi) Western Ukraine, as well as numerous others. The demarcation appears to be clear – the US and its allies throughout the world can do as it pleases, but any resistance to this militarism is automatically termed ‘terrorism’, even though under International Law, every oppressed political, religious or ethnic group possesses the legal right to wage an armed resistance to that oppression. In this regard, the United Nations has issued various decisions against the USA and Israel, for example, stating that their military actions on numerous occasions have ‘violated’ International Law. The latest wave of terrorist attacks in the West stems directly from Western military action in the Middle East from at least 1991 with the US-led First Gulf War, and culminating in the Invasion and destruction of the sovereign governments of Afghanistan and Iraq around a decade later. This situation has been compounded by the NATO-led invasion and destruction of the sovereign government of Libya, and the attempted destruction of Syria, as well as the Western-backed coup in Egypt, etc. All this Western military aggression in the Middle East has been reflected in Israel’s continuous and intensified brutality against the Palestinian population.

As a Marxist-Leninist, I do not promote or support terrorism. Within the theoretical thinking associated with Scientific Socialism, terrorism is not accepted as a legitimate means to transform a capitalist society into a Socialist society. The Communist Party of Britain (CPB), for example, advocates the ‘peaceful’ transition of the UK into a Socialist State through through the democratic process at the ballet box. Terrorism only hurts the Working Class, because invariably the Workers are over-whelming the victims of it, but terrorism achieves nothing for a ‘consented’ social transformation. This is why Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and virtually every other Communist leader (despite false propaganda to the contrary), rejected it as a means to make Revolution. On the other hand, Marx wrote that the Working Class has a right to ‘collectively’ protect itself, which can be seen as manifested in Britain’s stance against Nazi Germany in WWII, and the Soviet Union’s confrontation of the same fascist foe. This legitimate self-defence is not ‘terrorism’, but a means of collectively ‘protecting’ the country from a destructive and external terrorist threat.

A contemporary issue in the UK, stems from the UK government’s unwillingness to truthfully assess exactly ‘why’ it is that fanatic Islamo-fascist groups are targeting Britain (and other European countries), and why various rightwing (and occasionally ‘Christian’) groups originating within the UK, are resorting to ‘murder’ to make their political point? British foreign policy – which has seen quite literally hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions) of innocent Middle Eastern people killed by Western military action since 1991. An interesting question is how would British or American people react if their countries were over-run and militarily destroyed by a rampant and all dominating ‘foreign’ force? A foreign force that viewed everything it did as being politically, morally, legally and religiously ‘correct’, whilst its armed forces killed with impunity, often ‘demeaning’ their victims in the process. In the case of the US, a historical answer is readily available. During the War of Independence in the later part of the 18th century, where renegade British Citizens (and their non-British allies), conspired to over-throw the legitimate UK governance of the British Colonies in the Americas. How was this essentially bourgeois ‘Revolution’ to take place? The ‘American’ rebels resorted to armed terrorism against the legitimate British Authorities. This terrorism evolved into a legitimate military movement that was eventually able to field a conventional army (albeit often using ‘unconventional’ methods and tactics), that confronted the British Army. American terrorism advocated the arming of civil society – an idea (and action) that was ‘illegal’ in the UK, and which had been so for hundreds of years. Americans that supported the British were often attacked and killed in broad daylight, and their businesses boycotted and destroyed. So bad was this American use of ‘terrorism’, that the British Authorities decided to ‘free’ any African slave that pledged allegiance to the UK cause – even creating ‘Black’ regiments in the British Army! As this ‘American’ rebellion eventually ‘won’ its fight, the entire affair was viewed through the history as established by the victors. In this history, all the acts of brutal murder and oppression committed by the American rebels are presented as legitimate acts of ‘freedom fighting’. Ironically today, virtually no one in the US (of any ethnic origin), associates the US use of terrorism against the British in the 18th century, with the Middle Eastern terrorism of the 20th and 21st centuries against the UK and the USA. Of course, this is partly a ‘racist’ response that views everything ‘White’ as being superior to everything ‘non-White’, etc.

As matters stand, the UK government responds to terrorist acts not with education, reconciliation, reform and peace-making, but rather uses the ‘threat’ of terrorism as a means to  ‘take away’ our civil liberties. Instead of confronting the ‘actual’ or ‘real’ reasons why terrorism happens, our civil liberties are removed as a means to make it harder for any potential terrorist to commit a violent act. It is obvious that this policy does not work, as terrorists always strike where least expected. In the meantime, the ordinary people of Britain are continuously punished everyday by having their age-old freedoms curtailed and removed as a ‘response’ to terrorism. Surely this is nothing short of allowing the terrorists to alter our way of life, and in a very real sense, is handing these very same terrorists a moral and practical victory. It would be better to ‘strengthen’ and not ‘weaken’ or civil liberties, and for the UK government to ‘change’ the way it behaves overseas, by disassociating its activities from the current alignment with contemporary US neo-imperialist foreign policy. If the UK does not carry-out the actions that attracts a terrorist response – the chances of a terrorist attack would reduce. Furthermore, if the UK pursued a policy of making amends throughout the world by following a compassionate and wise agenda, the chances of a terrorist attack would disappear altogether.

Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) [1895-1944] Hero of the Soviet Union

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

On the morning of the 18th October, 1941, Japanese counter-intelligence initiated a number of arrests in Tokyo that smashed a Soviet sky-ring. The Soviet Red Army had humiliated the Japanese Imperial Army a number of times in 1938 and 1939 in battles that occurred in and around the Mongolia-Manchuria border areas. Following the Japanese surrender to the Soviets, the Government of Japan was reluctant to get directly involved in another war with the USSR. However, following the Nazi German invasion of the USSR during June, 1941, the Soviet High Command were not sure whether Japan would attack the USSR from the East. This knowledge was important, particularly as Nazi German forces were sweeping through the USSR from the West, and even reaching the outskirts of Moscow by early October, 1941.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Soviet High Command was evacuating Moscow when the Soviet Leader – Joseph Stalin – took the decision to personally stay and over-see the defence of Russia’s capital city. Enter Soviet spy master Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) whose dedication to the Soviet Union, and selfless service to the cause of Communism, quite literally ‘saved’ the Soviet Union from the disaster of a complete Nazi German victory, through the vital intelligence he provided. Richard Sorge successfully worked as an undercover Nazi German journalist in Hitler’s Germany (supplying an endless stream of intelligence to the USSR), before securing transfer (as an apparent Nazi German journalist) to Tokyo, Japan in 1940. He is famous for confirming (from Japanese sources) Hitler’s definite plan to invade the USSR (although not the exact date), but his most outstanding contribution is that information secured at great personal cost (as it was guaranteed to blow his cover), when he found out that Imperial Japan, despite appearing to be preparing to invade the Eastern Soviet Union, in fact had no intention whatsoever to initiate this plan. Primarily because the Japanese High Command was preparing to attack the USA (and other extensive targets throughout Asia), and needed to preserve and focus all its available military forces for these operations. Once Joseph Stalin received Richard Sorge’s report (knowing as he did the quality of this Soviet spy’s information), he was free to move the vast (and fresh) Soviet Armies stationed toward the East of the USSR, so as to converge on Moscow, and drive the Nazi German forces out off the outskirts of that city!

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

This early victory became the glimmer of light that would eventually turn into the full Soviet counter-offensive that saw the Nazi German Army driven out of the USSR, and the Nazi German regime thoroughly destroyed in Berlin by the Red Army! Richard Sorge, meanwhile, was tried in Japan for being a Soviet spy, and sentenced to Death by hanging. His grave still exists in Japan today, and is treated with respect. All the way through his trial, Richard Sorge maintained his cover story and continued to speak fluent German. Eventually, whilst stood on the trap-door of the gallows, and following the hood and noose being placed over his head – Richard Sorge shouted in Russian ‘Long Live the Soviet Union!’

DPRK: Is Kim Jong Un Giving-Up the Hereditary System and Rejoining the ‘Communist’ Camp?

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

(Research & Translation by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Translator’s Note: Although the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ were apparently ‘removed’ from official documents in the DPRK a number of years ago, this did not mean that North Korea abandoned its Socialist or progressive institutions or establishments. On the contrary, the DPRK carried-on building Socialism and striving to establish Communism by looking after its people and providing for all their educational and material needs.  The idea that the removal of these two terms on paper equated with the abandonment of Marxist-Leninism in practice, is an error of interpretation. The only issue of note is that of the ‘heredity’ system in North Korea, and the dominance of that country’s government by a single branch of the ‘Kim’ family – but this is a matter for the North Korean people and no one else. Finally, although China is attempting to remove US and South Korean aggression against North Korea (by calling upon all sides to exercise restraint and arms control), nevertheless, articles within the Chinese press make it blatantly clear that China will come to the aid of North Korea should the West attack it. ACW (8.7.2017)

In May of this year (2016), the DPRK’s Workers’ Party will hold its 7th National People’s Congress.  It is thought that during this 7th Congress, the term ‘Communism’ will be re-written into the DPRK’s Constitution, or that slogans using the term will be used throughout the DPRK. In fact, with around a month before the 7th Congress begins, the DPRK Workers’ News publication has increased the intensity of its coverage, with Editorials including the word ‘Communism’! A typical example reads:

‘Military and civilian workers in the DPRK are striving together to build a Bright New Dawn and a Great Shining Path as a means of establishing ‘Communist’ civilisation in the country!’

The term ‘Communism’ has not appeared in the North Korean media for a long time. In April, 2009, the Supreme People’s Assembly (held in North Korea) decided to remove the term ‘Communism’ from the Constitution. Then in June, 2014 (after 39 years of ideological consistency) altered the Guiding Principles of the Constitution and the Workers’ Party Guiding Regulations for the first time, stating that ‘the only way to establish the DPRK Workers’ Party’s Ten Principles’, is only through the ‘Baishou Mountain Descent’ System – whereby Kim Jong Un’s regime was confirmed as being purely ‘hereditary’ in nature.

With the abandonment of the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the movement away from the ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ – and the ‘Communist’ vision followed by Kim Il Song and Kim Jong Il – North Korea has become a de facto ‘Dynasty State’. This seems to suggest that Kim Jong Un’s rule is now viewed as more important than that of his ancestors, and that the Marxist-Leninist basis of revolution and workers’ struggle has been side-lined, or relegated as less important.

When North Korea followed the ‘Communist’ path, it was very much viewed as a hermit country with little interest in the outside world. With the abandonment of ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the establishment of Kim Jong Un’s rule, the DPRK has become very active on the international stage, and has attracted unwanted and unwarranted attention from the capitalist West – particularly the US. Could it be the case that to remedy this, the DPRK is going to re-engage ‘Communism’, and abandon the Kim Family inheritance pathway?

The DPRK media has not used the term ‘Communism’for around 14 years – but its sudden re-emergence, it does appear that a change is coming. This is significant, as the DPRK has only held 6 previous Congresses in 1946, 1948, 1956, 1961, 1970 and 1980. The upcoming Congress will be the first in 36 years since the rule of Kim Sung Il!

放弃世袭! 金正恩考虑重投“共产主义”阵营

发表于 2016-04-11 22:27:04|
导读: 朝鲜将于今年5月召开劳动党第七次全国代表大会。有观点认为,“共产主义”一词有可能会在本次七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
距离朝鲜劳动党第七次全国代表大会还剩大约一个月时间。朝鲜媒体已经展开了如火如荼的造势活动,以迎接这个重要场合。与此同时,有一个词也意外出现在宣传内容里——“共产主义”。朝鲜《劳动新闻》7日刊登的社论中写道,
“军人建设者和人民要将黎明大街建设成为符合文明国家面貌的共产主义理想大街。“
“共产主义”一词已好久没有出现在朝鲜媒体上。2009年4月,朝鲜召开的最高人民会议,决定从宪法中删除“共产主义”一词。2014年6月,朝鲜时隔39年首次修改规范力度高于宪法和劳动党章程的《树立党的唯一思想体系十大原则》,明文规定了“白头山血统”—金正恩一家的政权世袭制。
朝鲜毅然摒弃“共产主义”,无异于向全世界宣布朝鲜进入“王朝国家”。更为重要的是“共产主义”一词消失,代替的是“金日成和金正日主义”;同时删除了“无产阶级专政”。将原来“为完成社会主义、共产主义伟业而斗争”的部分修改为“为完成主体革命伟业而斗争”。这就意味着比起共产主义理念,金氏一家唯一领导体系更为重要。
当年朝鲜去共产主义的行为并未引起世人轰动,毕竟所有人都心知肚明:朝鲜此举只不过是捅破了一层窗户纸罢了。然而,近来朝鲜官媒再次提及“共产主义”,不免令人浮想联翩。难道在金正恩领导下的朝鲜要回归共产主义,甚至放弃金氏家族世袭?
韩联社认为,朝鲜媒体近期开始提到已有14年未提的“共产主义”,或表明共产主义一词有可能会在本次朝鲜劳动党七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
朝鲜劳动党七大是朝鲜时隔36年再次召开全国党代会,上一次朝鲜召开党代会还要追溯到金日成主政时期的1980年。朝鲜劳动党在历史上共召开过六次全国代表大会,分别是在1946年、1948年、1956年、1961年、1970年和1980年。
