Proletariat Fish: Marx and Engels are in the Building! (12.1.2018)




Mei-An and Kai-Lin have been promised fish for sometime now, and neither has caused a fuss for having to wait patiently. A picture of Lenin adorns the back, together with a Red Flag on the front. The two ‘Revolutionary’ goldfish are now known as ‘Marx’ anf ‘Engels’! Long Live the Socialist Revolution!

How the Bourgeois State Usurped Socialist Education Methods in the UK


It is interesting how the capitalist system will steal Socialist educational methods if a profit can be made by selling them! Socialist education methods are designed to be deployed ‘free’ throughout the country – and not ‘sold’ to those who are already privileged within society. Free and good quality education is a right for all working class people, and working class children should be treated with respect and compassion when they go to school. Then, these children will grow-up to be respectful and compassionate toward others! Of course, if the working class could be ‘transformed’ in this manner, then the bourgeoisie would lose its control over capitalist society – and so Socialist education must be ‘stolen’ from the workers and never allowed to succeed. In the 1970’s in the UK, Labour controlled Local Education Authorities tried a number of different and progressive ways to educate children – usually ideas derived from progressive Socialist thinkers. At the time, the bourgeois establishment and its rightwing media attacked these ideas as emerging from the ‘loony left’ – and potentially damaging to the minds of youngsters. Like in the USSR and Communist China – Labour Authorities sought to break with the principles of elitist education (that were not in the class interests of the workers), and develop an entirely ‘new’ way of educating the masses premised upon scientific research and experience. In a bizarre turn-around, particularly in the bourgeois area within which I live, I have noticed how certain ‘academies’ are now routinely using what were once considered ‘progressive’ and ‘Socialist’ education methods – methods that put the well-being, confidence and learning experience of the child at the fore-front of all developmental learning strategies – whilst abandoning the stark and often brutal tenants of Social Darwinism (still practised in the elitist schools through the traditional methods of education). These progressive methods create a healthy and incentive-based environment, within which what the child thinks and feels is taken into account and valued. The irony is that even some ‘private’ schools in my area are applying these progressive methods – but at no time are the ‘Socialist’ origins of these methods acknowledged or discussed. This is a clear case of the bourgeois, capitalist system usurping Socialist education methods and using them for its own ends (i.e. to make profit), simply because they work. The difference today is that it is the elitist academies and private schools that are deploying these progressive methods – and as these entities fully support the capitalist system – the mainstream press nolonger refer to this exercise as deriving from the ‘loony left’.

China: Socialist Education in the Classroom (2014)


Red Star Primary School pupils – Writing Down Their Dreams!

On the morning of China’s National Day (1.10.2014) – just before the raising of the Red Flag – around two thousand staff and pupil’s of Shijiazhuang city’s Red Star Primary School (situated in Hebei province), gathered to recite the ‘Twenty Four  Core Socialist Values’ which include ‘Prosperity’, Democracy, Bright Culture, Harmony, Freedom, Justice, Equality, Rule of Law, Patriotism, Dedication, Integrity, and Friendliness, etc. These ideals are taught throughout the school year involving many and varied educational activities that help the children through discovery-learning and play, what it means to live in a ‘Communist’ country, and how important ‘civilised’ behaviour is, for a society to progress and evolve. As the Red Flag is raised – the meaning of these core ‘Socialist’ values is made ever clearer to these young minds – the Socialists of tomorrow.


Red Star Primary School pupils – Their Creations

One creative-writing exercise involves the Red Star Primary School pupils taking the ‘Twenty Four Core Socialist Values’ and through free-association, re-imagine different ways to positively interpret and develop these ideals in any way they think is good, attractive, worthwhile and all-inclusive. The individuals in the class are encouraged to develop their own ideas – but are uplifted and empowered through the collective activity of the entire class itself.  There is no such thing as ‘failure’, and unlike bourgeois schools in the West, every single child in China is valued and uplifted through the tenants of Marxist-Leninism-Maoism! This means that the creative powers of each child are acknowledged as being equally worthy by the Communist State, and through expert education that is supportive and directive, the intellectual and creative capacities are individually and collectively enhanced. Every child is of equal importance in China. Through patriotism, it is often the case that the educational standards of parents are improved by the educational accomplishments of their children. This is because in modern China education has blossomed beyond any level known in its history – and sometimes adults have to catch-up. Love of country is combined with love of family and love of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with no discrimination. It is important that the Chinese people develop together and set an example for the rest of humanity.
