In 1956 – the USSR was corrupted by Khrushchev’s corruption – and the Revolution lost its essential Marxist-Leninist character! Russia has been dealing with loss ever since the Russian Socialist Revolution of 1917! Today, many ordinary Russians hold right-wing and far-right viewpoints – believing that the West is attempting to corrupt the pure ‘White’ Russian character with ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘homosexuality’! It is perhaps one of the greatest ironies that these ideas of social organisation and tolerance toward ‘difference’ actually originated within the Soviet Union and spread to the West – permanently effecting Western cultural development forever! Our grandfathers and great grandfathers fought in WWI and WWII – and we are very proud of them!
Around three million Czarist Russians were killed and/or wounded (fighting as an Ally of the UK) during WWI between 1914-1917! During 1917 – the Russian
At present, we must sit and observe the US bourgeoisie interact in a sugary-sweet manner with its Indian counter-part – whilst millions of ordinary Indian people remain illiterate and enslaved by the inverted and primitive ideology of religion – which is the result of the grinding poverty they are forced to endure on a daily basis! This is the socio-economic reality that bourgeois Indian collaboration with the predatory capitalism of the United States truly represents! Whilst a succession of Indian governments allow the West to interfere in the relations between China and India – the 1947 Independence of India (from the brutality of the British ‘Raj’) will mean absolutely NOTHING for the majority of ordinary Indians!
American democracy has deviated from the essence of democracy. The American-style democracy is a game of money played by the rich. Ninety-one percent of U.S. Congressional elections are won by better-financed candidates. “One person one vote” in name, “rule of the minority elite” in fact. Ordinary voters are wooed when their votes are wanted but pushed aside once the election is over. The checks and balances have resulted in a “vetocracy”, putting partisan interests before the need of national development. The U.S. electoral system is visibly flawed. The practice of gerrymandering, which draws the boundaries of electoral districts by manipulation, undermines fairness and justice. American democracy is fraught with deep-seated problems. Problems like money politics, identity politics, partisan wrangling, political polarization, social division, racial tension and wealth gap have become more acute. The Capitol riot shocked the world. The death of George Floyd triggered waves of protests. The mishandling of COVID-19 resulted in a human tragedy. The problem of “the rich get richer, and the poor poorer” is worsening. The dysfunction and failure of American-style democracy have become an unmistakable fact.
To live in peace, to live without the expectation of fear, these are (or should be) fundamental Human Rights – but so many people in the world today do not possess these fundamental rights! It is one of those great ironies which observes that some of those countries which attempt to rhetorically use the concept of ‘Human Rights’ as a bargaining chip during political negotiations – or as a justification to inflict military destruction on others – are amongst some of the greatest abusers of Human Rights the world has ever known! This is why those countries who oppose these nefarious forces are coming together (in a friendly manner) to participate in coordinated military games, competitions and other types of ‘collective’ peace-time deployments!
In the Barracks on the snow-covered plateau – and on the border line stretching thousands of kilometres – the Officers and Soldiers of the Tibet Military Region always stand by their posts, guarding the peace and harmony of the Motherland! On the Eve of the Army Day, the Officers and Soldiers of the Model Camp on the Medog Frontier of the Tibet Military Region once again embarked on the patrol road!
