Despite the UK in many ways appearing to be a Soviet State between 1948-1979 – it still functioned within a Bourgeois, capitalist (liberal democratic) system. Since 1979, the onus has been upon dismantling this Socialist edifice and re-instating the pre-1948 status quo where workers do as they are told for as little money as possible. This has to understood if the stage-managing of The Beatles is to be understood. The Beatles existed as a means for the four members and the plethora of individuals surrounding and enabling them (including the ‘Roadie’ Mal Evans) were to make a comfortable living. Behind all these people was the monolith of EMI – so if The Beatles were already millionaires by 1964 (and there are good reasons to assume this) – the reader can speculate just how much profit their ‘look’ and ‘sound’ bought the publishing company! As a winning combination has been arrived at more or less by trial and error – the thinking was that none of it should be changed for fear of spoiling the earning potential. The music of The Beatles is so dialectically stimulating that it means many things to all people. This led to John Lennon expressing in a (reactionary) 1968 interview with British students that he had as many ‘fascists’ as ‘Socialist’ fans – he said this after berating the USSR and the idea of external (revolutionary) change. He seems to be expressing EMI advertising policy rather than any innate knowledge of Marxist-Leninism. Cackling in the shadows was Yoko Ono who never got round to addressing the subject of her anti-Western family supporting ultra-right-wing political views in Japan – or the War Crimes the Imperial Japanese Army had committed during the 1930s and 1940s throughout Asia (and against British POWs). She remains ‘anti-Chinese’ to this day.
Yelnya: The Soviet Red Army and the First European Defeat Inflicted Upon Nazi Germany During WWII! (18.3.2023)
‘Nevertheless, the fact that Russia had “allies” – or rather, one major ally, Britain – and that America was going to “help” was of some psychological importance to the Russians, they did not feel entirely alone, and soon after the invasion the thought had become deeply ingrained that the war would be won, no matter how terrible and how long it was. Much was, of course, made of minor military successes, such as the slowing-down of the blitzkrieg at Smolensk (which, curiously, created for several weeks almost a feeling of euphoria, at least in Moscow), and of the small Russian counter-offensive at Yelnya, south of Smolensk in September 1941, when a few hundred square miles were recaptured from the Germans – the first to be recaptured anywhere in Europe since the beginning of the Second World War. At that time, in bombed and half-devastated Vyazna, the future Marshal V. D. Sokolovsky made to the foreign press the significant remark that, fearful as the war was, the Russians were “gradually grinding down” the German war machine, and that in any case Moscow would not be lost.’
Is Huey Newton Being Betrayed by His Contemporary Representatives? (14.3.2023)
Zizek’s religiosity is sickening considering how ‘White’ (Judeo-Christian) America treated Huey Newton! Read Chapter Fourteen of Revolutionary Suicide to understand the shit-covered darkness of this religious outlook! And Zizek dares to talk about ‘daily bread’! Huey Newton existed at the very heart of the struggle for non-White people to be ‘free’ of ‘White’ oppression! And Zizek dares to talk about Huey Newton holding a post-colonial attitude! Huey Newton campaigned from the position that Black people continue to be ‘colonially’ oppressed within ‘White’ America – and that this continuous experience of racial oppression at home is mirrored by the non-White experience of oppression abroad! White America is the biggest oppressor at home and abroad – but Zizek has spoken, and the Foundation has remained ‘silent’! Huey Newton was a sound historical materialist – and conducted his highly effective campaign likewise. And Zizek implies he possessed the superstitious attribute of ‘extrasensory perception’! Huey Newton was not part of the ‘radical left’ as Zizek suggests – as the ‘radical left’ is a ‘White’ and ‘Trotskyite’ invention – the very enemies of genuine Marxist-Leninist-Maoism! If you really want to study Huey Newton – study Marxist-Leninist-Maoism and continue the very Revolution he participated within throughout his life! Expose these ‘Black’ Bourgeois organisations that seek to steal or working-class Revolution with their peculiar distortion of racism constricted to look like a dollar sign!
Children of Men (2006) Film – ‘Revolutionary’ Stills! (9.3.2023)
The ‘Hammer & Sickle’ ‘picture derives from a ‘deleted’ scene found on one of the older blu-ray versions of this ‘Children of Men’ Movie. Although I have not had time to check – I am told that on the same scene in the ‘released’ film – the ‘Hammer & Sickle’ is removed! The exact same wall (together with ALL its peculiarly ‘British’ Revolutionary graffiti – and actors meandering around) is present – but the area above the two human heads is now ‘blank’! If I have time, I will confirm this and perhaps add a photograph of the same wall minus the ‘Hammer & Sickle’! Perhaps this omission is the ‘spirit’ of PD James making itself felt after-all – or the Bourgeois State is so afraid of our working-class symbols that they must be ‘removed’ from public display at all costs! After-all, Neo-Nazi Ukraine – along with the many other US-backed Hitlerite States throughout Eastern Europe – has ‘banned’ the Red Flag and the ‘Hammer & Sickle’, wrongly equating these Proletariat objects with ‘Russia’!
Victor Lewis Smith – Trotsky and the Orwell Pig! (1.2.2023)
Of course, the dishonesty that Victor Lewis Smith displays is that he is linked to the racist Evening Standard and hideously Eurocentric ‘Private Eye’ (not to mention his stint with the ‘Mail on Sunday’) – Bourgeois avenues of pompous expressions designed for ‘White’ entertainment at the expense of the ‘non-Whites’. In this monochrome view of reality, it is never the continuous murder that defines predatory capitalism which serves as the fuel for the daily cut and thrust (as smouldering, broken, mutilated and deformed bodies are just not ‘funny’ – at least when not subject to suitable CGI) – but rather the hideous (Eurocentric) ‘fictions’ that are used to disinform about China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Laos and Vietnam – a troupe which runs straight through the centre of the output of Victor Lewis Smith! Being ‘likable’ is not the same as being ‘acceptable’ and Smith always played his cards close to his chest. I think his sleekness will fool many progressives at the surface level because that is exactly ‘why’ he ‘mimics’ the manner in which Karl Marx exposed the hypocrisy of Bourgeois society! After-all, unlike Marx, Victor Lewis Smith made a reasonable living out of that hypocrisy!
William Burroughs – Spending Working-Class ‘Leisure’ Time is NOT Revolution! (22.2.2023)
As well as this chemically altered perception – Burroughs would participate in all kinds of deviant sexual activity – which he admitted in his books also included the ‘illegal’. How did the hypocritical Bourgeoisie respond to these revelations? By turning a blind-eye, of course, Everything that titillated the Bourgeois imagination was viewed as prime examples of an ‘alternative’ lifestyle well-lived, whilst anything that was or could be ‘illegal’ was simply declared as ‘imagination’ and pure ‘art’ – and nothing else was said! Losing control of the material world is NOT Revolution and is the process of effectively ‘abandoning’ the field to the opposition. Participating in various forms of illegal and/or sexual deviancy (as a form of ‘lack of control’) is nothing more than William Burroughs letting his ‘Bourgeois’ side shine through!
