A rare copy of Karl Marx’s ‘Das Kapital’ (written in the original German) ‘fell’ from the top shelf leading to a freak accident – struck Mr Smith a debilitating blow to the fore-head – leading to unconsciousness, hospitalisation, coma and finally oblivion! The representatives of Mr Smith’s estate would like to emphasise that despite the unfortunate events surrounding his demise – Mr Smith was in no way a ‘Marxist’ and did not endorse any revolutionary ideology or method of social transformation! He is survived by a Whippet and a rather odd reputation.
Hitler: Know the Danger and Illogicality of Your Enemy! (6.2.2023)
Fascism is an ever clear and present danger as it lurks within the very core of the predatory capitalist system the Bourgeoisie invented – and
Lenin: Conversation with Clara Zetkin (1920) – Her Recollections! (31.12.2022)
Clara Zetkin was sent by Rosa Luxemburg to set Lenin straight over issues of the rights of women – and the direction and tone of the Revolution in general! Rosa Luxemburg – like many adherents of the failed Second International – disagreed with Lenin and his ‘Third International and suggested the Revolutionary Movement should cooperate with the existing Bourgeois status quo to a greater extent, and back away from the idea of ‘overthrowing’ the capitalist system! In this regard, and when taking these attitudes into account, Rosa Luxemburg sailed very close to the Trotskyite position of collaboration with reaction. Indeed, she would eventually be murdered by one of her former students – a tragic end that reveals the limitations of her attitudes. Below is an English translation of a text originally written in the German language by Clara Zetkin recalling her memories of a number of discussions, she had with Lenin during late 1920 in Moscow as the Russian Civil War was still raging and Lenin (and the Communist Party) were planning the forming of large federal Socialist State as a means to generating the conditions for a better form of military self-defence from attack by the capitalist world. During early 1918, Revolutionary Russia had been invaded by Imperial Germany and six of her Allies, and by the UK, US and twelve of their Allies! This war would last from 1918-1921 and cost the Russian people 10.5 million casualties! Imperial Japan would only abandon Vladivostok during October 1922 – just before the forming of the ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ (USSR) on December 30th, 1922! Meanwhile, far from telling Lenin what to do or think, Clara Zetkin found herself converted by his intelligence and insight and returned to Germany informing all and sundry that Lenin was right, and that Rosa Luxemburg should listen and learn from Lenin! Marxist-Leninist ‘Feminism’ is the only truly ‘Revolutionary’ path for women and is very different to the ‘Bourgeois’ mock-feminism that abounds today! For women to be truly ‘free’ – predatory capitalism must be overthrown completely and there can be no compromise whatsoever on this point! Anyone woman that compromises with capitalism is a traitor to the Revolutionary cause!
No Protests in China – Just Laughter at US Anti-Intellectualism! (3.12.2022)
There are NO protests in China. There does not have to be as the Working-Class of China controls the ‘means of production’ and decides the best policies that serve the ongoing interests of that branch of the International Proletariat! Every Worker in China possesses the right to protest and to strike – these are inherent rights granted to each individual Worker in China since the Socialist Revolution in 1949! The exercising of these rights marks the ongoing success of the 1949 Socialist Revolution and the popularity of the Communist Party of China (CPC) as the agency that safeguards these rights and prevents Bourgeois entities (such as the US) from taking such hard-earned rights away from the masses through their ongoing (and continuous) lying and destructive policies! All is well in China – but not so in the capitalist West – as it has badly miscalculated by supporting a failed Neo-Nazi (NATO) coup in the Ukraine! The US has decided it is time for yet another pointless (and mindless) distracton! Let’s see if this post is ‘ghosted’!
The Neo-Nazi Ukrainian Conflict – a Tale of Two Fascisms! (3.12.2022)
Since 1991, the post-Soviet space has been inundated with far-right political ideology and religious extremism – as it is a combination of these two ideological thrusts that the US believed would uproot the ‘Internationalism’ and selfless and caring aspects perpetuated by the ideology of Marxist-Leninism! This is why Russia today is inherently (and disturbingly) racist, sexist, homophobic and highly nationalistic! All these things are present amongst the Russian population – and yet the same population appears collectively to be unable to discern the contradiction that these cultural attributes are ‘fascist’ and directly mirror the equivalent Neo-Nazi attitudes common throughout the Ukraine! In other words, Russians are being asked to fight and die in the Ukraine in an attempt to stamp-out exactly the same far-right ideology that runs rampant in their own country! In reality, this far right ideology was imported into the post-Soviet space by the US between 1991-1999 – after which time Russian leaders started to take control of their own country in a more effective manner. Therefore, there is no ‘Socialism’ within Russia and Russians in general react to the conflict in Ukraine with an unquestioning and thoroughly ‘racist’ nationalist fervour! The point is that as repugnant as modern Russia is, as a nation Russians are fighting the Neo-Nazism the US, UK and EU have financed and armed in the Ukraine. I oppose Russian capitalism just as much as I oppose Ukrainian Neo-Nazism – but as the Russian Armed Forces are currently opposing Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine – I narrowly support that fight.
