Why Jeremy Corbyn Should Be Proud to be a Called a ‘Communist’ (But Probably Isn’t!)


Noel Gallagher’s latest outburst, might be a ploy to ‘mainstream’ Jeremy Corbyn’s Scientific Socialist tendencies. Noel Gallagher, in his youth, was well-known for his own ‘Communistic’ outbursts, and part of his fame stems from his distinctly ‘proletariat’ approach to handling the music industry that made him rich, and the media that made him famous. One thing is for sure, Jeremy Corbyn should be proud to be called a ‘Communist’, but from the indignant response of the bourgeois left (which includes the Labour Party), and the vacuous prattling of the mindless rightwing press, it is obvious that those around him consider this an ‘insult’. There is nothing insulting about caring for humanity and striving (through the use of ‘Scientific Socialism’) to eradicate poverty, war and disease. The problem for the bourgeoisie is that this progressive process would also mean an end to that parasitic class, and it is this fear of the loss of privilege and wealth that drives the continuous (and highly misinformed) campaign against Communism. Ever since the Communist Party founded the British Labour Party, the bourgeois establishment has striven to infiltrate it, and convert it to its own hatefilled and greed-orientated ideology. This bourgeois project has been very successful and is almost complete. A keen-eyed observer knows something is afoot, when the veteran Labour Party ‘Socialist’ – Dennis Skinner – records in his biography that he visited the Soviet Union (as part of an all expenses paid union visit to Moscow in his youth), but he ‘refused’ to visit the tomb of Lenin in Red Square! This evidence may be added to such bourgeois (left) Labour figures such as Tony Benn, George Galloway and Ken Livingstone, to mention just a few, all of whom have made a career out of denigrated the Soviet Union and enthusiastically joining with the Bourgeois State in its propagation of US-generated Cold War lies. I doubt very much that Jeremy Corbyn is a Communist, or even a Marxist for that matter. He grew out of the Labour bourgeois left along with Benn and co, and I further doubt that his views differ from those of his peers. Whilst talking about saving the NHS, Corbyn has said nothing about the Welfare System, and has omitted completely any mention of raising taxes during the next Labour Party government. The reality is simple; no tax raises, no redistribution of wealth, no Welfare State and no NHS. In the meantime, Labour Party duplicity apart – the Communist Movement has done much to progress humanity, and all those ignorant right wingers and fascists have Communists to thank for the 8 hour day and basic working rights. The defeat of international fascism during the 1930’s and 1940’s can be added to this comprehensive list!

Proud to Vote Red!


Marx and Engels, as well as Lenin, all stated that wherever liberal democracy existed, (and it did not exist everywhere in the 19th century), and wherever Workers were allowed to participate in the voting process by the bourgeois class that oppressed them, then Workers should use their vote in a Revolutionary manner, as part of the general process to usher in a Proletariat Revolution! Why note vote? After-all, just as long as the Bourgeois State uses its power to keep keep ordinary people oppressed and imprisoned in a world of psychological and physical inequality, voting is a means through which who controls the State can be peacefully and lawfully changed. Workers who do not vote are deliberately falling into the bourgeois trap of abandoning the political field to their political enemies. The Bourgeois State prefers that masses of Workers live in isolated squalor, with no intellectual or material means to unite, organise and over-throw the powers of stifling conservatism. Although the Trotskyites will try and brain-wash the workers into not voting (after-all, the Trotskyites actually co-operate with the capitalist system and betray the Workers whilst pretending to represent their best interests), the simple fact remains that voting is ‘free’ and available to every single citizen. The Bourgeois State (and its political representatives) will try every trick in the book to keep the Working Class oppressed and in a sub-ordinate possession within society. The Workers must resist this pressure in a manner that is dialectically applicable for the contemporary historical epoch. In other words, different societies will possess different socio-economic, cultural and historical conditions, that will necessitate different modes of protest and resistance. In the UK, which is very rich after decades of imperialist exploitation of the world, and in the centuries following the English Civil War, has developed a very advanced capitalist economy, and has extended the right to vote to all citizens over the age of 18 (barring one or two exclusions). The point is that if all Working Class people registered to vote – and then voted ‘Labour’ – the Tory Party would never again rule the country – how could it, when it only represents the interests of a privileged few? Not only this, but such a voter turn-out would ensure that Labour only followed Socialist principles and Working Class values.
