‘Among the many traits the peoples of our two countries (the USA and the Soviet Union) have in common, none is stronger than the mutual abhorrence of war. Almost unique among the major world powers, we have never been at war with each other. And no nation in the history of battle ever suffered more than the Russians suffered in the course of the Second World War… At least twenty million lost their lives. Countless millions of homes and farms were burned or sacked. A third of the nation’s (European) territory, including nearly two-thirds of its industrial base, were turned into waste-land.’

President John F Kennedy – Speech delivered at the American University in Washington – two months prior to the USSR initiating the Moscow Test-Ban Treaty. (Quoted from the Introduction of ‘Russia at War 1941-1945’ – By Alexander Werth).

President Kennedy made a peculiar mix of rightwing and predatory capitalist-supporting speeches, together with the occasional leftwing speech supporting Unions and empathizing with the Soviet Union. Of course, he also made the usual anti-USSR speeches, formulated by the CIA and designed to sully and misrepresent the Socialist reality of the Soviet Union. President Kennedy was wrong on one vital point in his above speech, and it is significant of the level of ignorance within the US that it was not picked-up at the time. The US had previously been at war with Revolutionary Russia from 1918-1921 – where thousands of US troops participated in an ‘invasion’ of Russia – alongside the troops of 13 other nations. This ‘capitalist’ coalition was eventually defeated and expelled from Revolutionary Russia, and this part of shameful US history was quietly pushed into the background of America’s collective memory. Of course, President Kennedy was only adopting this conciliatory attitude toward the USSR, because he wanted a ‘ban’ on the arms race that the US had initiated since 1945. As Socialist Science was proving itself vastly superior to its Western capitalist counter-part, President Kennedy wanted to defuse the situation and move the US and USSR away from this type of conflicting competition. On the other hand, the Trotskyite Nikita Khrushchev was a fool who missed a vital opportunity of conserving the progressive nature of the USSR, whilst disengaging from direct conflict with the USA. Khrushchev blustered on about the USSR encouraging the International Proletariat to ‘rise-up’ in the US – whilst his domestic policies simultaneously ‘stripped’ the USSR of its self-respect and ability to ‘project’ Revolutionary power around the world.

Wikileaks and the Re-Distribution of Knowledge

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Wikileaks is not a Socialist organisation, a point which can be discerned from the fact that although documents have been released regarding various and continuous abuses of power by Western, capitalist governments, at no time is the capitalist system (which gives rise to these injustices and atrocities), criticised by Wikileaks. Wikileaks is in the business of ‘re-distributing’ knowledge, but is definitely not in the business of re-distributing wealth and eradicating inequalities from within society. In this regard, Wikileaks is a thoroughly bourgeois and individualistic endeavour, which explains why the bourgeois-left British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ was complicit in assisting Wikileaks with a number of its earliest links (which attacked the government of Kenya). There is a mistaken notion at the heart of Wikileaks which assumes that without transforming the capitalist system, things can be made ‘better’ by simply sharing knowledge. This is an obviously middle class and Eurocentric view of the world, which over-prices the value of information, and ignores the fact that the systemic poverty within the capitalist system ensures an asymmetric distribution of that knowledge, which can only be accessed by the economically and culturally privileged. This smirks of bourgeois anarchy, or perhaps even Trotskyism, but certainly cannot be associated with Revolutionary Socialism. Simply telling governments what they already know is not a Revolutionary act.

What Wikileaks has achieved is the confirmation that the democratically elected governments of the capitalist world, routinely ‘lie’ and act to ‘deceive’ the very electorate that votes them into power, to a level that is so huge that it is difficult to fully comprehend in a single sitting. We can see that ‘War Crimes’ have been part and parcel of the US military presence in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and that breaking domestic and international law is routine for every US government. Of course, Wikipedia has stated that it has nothing to do with Wikileaks, and condemns its method and purpose. This is not surprising, as Wikipedia follows US government guidelines with its perpetuation of ‘fake’ history about the USSR, Palestine and China, etc. With regards to China, I have included three Chinese language articles that mention Wikileaks in the Chinese media. This exposes the lie perpetuated by Wikileaks that it is ‘banned’ in China! As a Communist State, the US (and its allies) are not allowed to use their bourgeois media outlets as a means to directly undermine the Communist Party of China (CPC), or its governance of China. As matters stand, although disruptive and inconvenient for the capitalist governments, Wikileaks remains firmly within the bourgeois, capitalist camp an is not a friend of Socialism. This is despite Wikileaks revealing US diplomatic papers proving that the supposed 1989 Tiananmen Square Incident was a media fabrication of the US and UK governments. Communist China is not interested in Western governments telling lies – as Karl Marx established this fact over a hundred years ago.

Communist China’s Success and its Misinterpretation

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Production by the masses, the interests of the masses, the experiences and feelings of the masses – to these the leading cadres should pay constant attention.

Mao Zedong 8th Route Army Headquarters – Yenan – 24.11.1943

When it comes to emancipating our minds, using our heads, seeking truth from facts and uniting as one looking to the future, the primary task is to emancipate our minds. Only then can we, guided as we should be by Marxist-Leninist and Mao Zedong Thought, find correct solutions to emerging as well as inherited problems… Just imagine the additional wealth that could be created if all the people in China’s hundreds of thousands of enterprises and millions of production teams put their minds to work. As more wealth is created for the state, personal income and collective benefits should also increase somewhat… Otherwise, we won’t be able to rid our country of poverty and backwardness or to catch up with – still less surpass – the advanced countries.’ 

Deng Xiaoping – Emancipate the Mind, Seek Truth from Facts and Unite as One in Looking to the Future – 13.12.1978

Communist China is a Socialist State founded in late 1949. At that time, the Communist Party of China (led by Mao Zedong) over-threw the Western-supported government of Chiang Kai-Shek, eradicated feudalism and over-threw the bourgeoisie and the predatory capitalism they represented, and seized the means of production. Chiang Kai-Shek and his capitalists invaded the island of Taiwan and seized power there (committing many atrocities in the process), with the remnants of his US-supported regime still occupying that island today, with its exploitative class system still intact. Taiwan is the only part of Mainland China where US-style capitalism still holds sway. Within Taiwan, the small middle class dominates and oppresses the masses of workers – who are forced to eke-out a living in oppressive conditions – whilst this rogue regime is held together through US Christian missionary work (that converts the masses and turns them against Chinese culture by stating it is evil and backward), and by continuous US threats about invading Mainland China, or false US fears about Communist China invading Taiwan. This is the standard ‘divide and conquer’ tactics used by the Eurocentric forces of imperialism for centuries. Add to this the fact that the US government uses billions of dollars of its own tax-payer’s money to artificially prop-up Taiwan’s ‘false’ economy, and the true ‘fake’ status of Taiwan is revealed, showing it to be nothing but a US colony.

Every utility and business in China is ‘nationalised’ and owned by the Communist Chinese State. In other words, the Communist Party of China (CPC) – as the organised representative of the working class – having ceased full control of the means of production in 1949, now administers the entire business and service economy to benefit the people. All generated profit is immediately fed back into building a stronger and more efficient Workers’ State. This includes a fully comprehensive Welfare System, and free at the point of use National Health System. China uses both Western and Chinese medical systems provided free by the State. Science and technology is given unlimited funding to progress human understanding of the universe, and to develop advanced technology, medicines, treatments, communication systems, satellites and space travel. The Chinese legal system guarantees ‘equality’ throughout China, and unlike its bourgeois counter-part, a Chinese person receives full and free legal support. Communist China has rapidly developed both psychosocially and materiality since 1949, and has not only caught-up with the capitalist US, but is now surpassing this ruthless and capitalist country that uses its massive prison population as a form of slave labour.

The US has initiated a relentless anti-China campaign since 1949, bearing all the hall-marks of that country’s predictable ‘anti-Communist’ propaganda. Common accusations without any evidence include bizarre allegations that China is despotic, undemocratic, an invader of Tibet, a deceptive ‘capitalist’ country, and a dog-eating abuser of human rights, etc. What is remarkable about these views and many similar misrepresentations of China, is that they are shared equally across the Western political spectrum – both left and right. Underlying all these views are Eurocentric racist interpretations of the Chinese ethnicity, its political system, its history and its culture. These derogatory ideas about China are just as likely to manifest in India, as they are in the US, and often serve as the basis of both Western fascist and Communist critiques of China. The Western mainstream is just as racist as the fascist rightwing – but the Communist and Socialist left should know better. The problem with the left is that it has become riddled with Trotskyite racialised rhetoric that seeks to undermine any and all Marxist-Leninist regimes. Trotskyism dove-tales nicely with fascist ideology and is nothing but a racist misrepresentation of the leftwing perspective. Trotskyism also serves as the basis for the British Labour Party leftism – with even Jeremy Corbyn criticising China’s Yulin Dog Festival in Parliament in 2015 – with no Chinese-based evidence informing his views. This is the same Labour Leader who says nothing in Parliament about 24 hour slaughter houses in the UK, etc.

Communist understanding should be a continuous process of dialectic development and should not be stuck in the past, or congeal around a set of dogmatic ideals. When a Communist government seizes control of the means of production, capitalism is over-thrown with exploitative capitalist market forces replaced by working class representative Socialist market forces. Whereas in the former all profit is concentrated into the hands of a small and privileged group, in the latter all profit is radically re-distributed throughout society to directly benefit the majority of the ordinary people.  Obviously China has rejected the former and embraced the latter. Today, China seeks to master and over-come the Western capitalist system by learning its method from a Socialist perspective, and turning its method against the capitalists. The Western powers dominated China for hundreds of years and in that time ruthlessly exploited its people and stole its considerable wealth – leaving China thoroughly impoverished by 1911. By engaging the capitalists and beating them at their own game does not make China a ‘capitalist’ country – as even the USSR traded with the capitalist West. What it demonstrates is not the failure of Marxist-Leninist ideology, but rather its success. In just over 60 years, a backward and impoverished country has been completely transformed through the leadership of the Communist Party of China. This fact flies in the face of the false US propaganda that Socialism equals poverty. What capitalists and fascists either conveniently forget, or just do not know, is that Karl Marx stated that Socialism (and then Communism) emerge out of a very well developed and successful capitalist system – he never taught that Socialism is ‘anti-capitalist’. Marxists are anti-bourgeois and anti-exploitation, but they take economic market forces and re-define their uses so that society is benefited rather than oppressed. In 1949, 90% of China’s population were impoverished and illiterate – today, after just over 60 years of CPC guidance, this situation has been completely reversed, with 90% of the population being able to read and write, and live a life of greatly improved economic circumstances.

George Orwell: Trotskyite and Arch Traitor to the Left!

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

George Orwell was a middle class White man born into the heart of British imperialism in India – as his father was an official who managed the the export of opium grown in India – which was exported to the British Authorities stationed in China, where it was distributed throughout the population of China. Of course, as a member of a privileged class he went to Eton – an exclusive ‘Public’ school for the children of the rich and powerful in the UK. Following this, and acting fully inaccordance with his bourgeois leanings, George Orwell became a Colonial Police Officer – whose job it was to enforce the British imperialist presence in that country. As his family possessed wealth, he was able to live a life of leisure – writing here and there – after leaving the Colonial Police Force. During the Spanish Civil War, he joined a Trotskyite militia whose main function was to combat the Soviet International Brigades – whilst pretending to be fighting the fascists. The (Socialist) Republican government disbanded this militia for proven collaboration with General Franco’s fascist forces – but of course, George Orwell denies this real function. In fact, in 1938, Leon Trotsky called upon his followers to actively collaborate with the forces of International Fascism as a means of over-throwing the democratic, capitalist countries – and the Soviet Union. When returning to the UK – Orwell embarked upon an embittered anti-Soviet tirade with his ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘1984’ books being attempted ‘ahistorical’ Trotskyite critiques of the Soviet Union. As a White bourgeois male who had benefited from his class and colour, Orwell possessed a turn of phrase that has captivated many – but beware of exactly what it is that you are admiring! Like all Trotskyites – Orwell’s leftism is a charade behind which a true rightwing agenda is hidden. His mission was to attack and bring down the Soviet Union (for Trotsky), whilst undermining through misrepresentation, the Scientific Socialism of Marxist-Leninism. As his establishment-friendly rhetoric matched perfectly with the developing anti-Soviet Cold War ideology of post-WWII, Orwell became an establishment figure in the UK and across the capitalist world. Instead of being scene as he truly was – as an opportunistic Trotskyite – George Orwell is often (and mistakenly) interpreted to be some kind of political and literary genius! In reality, like all Trotskyites, Orwell strove to support the racist and oppressive bourgeois establishment. His books are nothing but Cold War trash written for brain-washing small children!

The Trotskyite Sharks Are Circling…

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Politicians of the British political left inhabit a strange world of having to present their leftwing beliefs, whilst constantly batting-off the allegation from the liberal and rightwing press of being ‘Marxists’, or worse still ‘Marxist-Leninists’. The term ‘Socialist’ is tolerated, but the related term of ‘Communist’ definitely is not. Not only does this position demonstrate a certain political illiteracy existing within the British media, but also highlights the fact that the Labour Party – originally founded by Socialists (later termed ‘Communists’) influenced by VI Lenin – has spent much of its existence treading the thin ideological line of purportedly naming itself after a key point of socio-economic analysis carried-out by Karl Marx, whilst simultaneously claiming to have ‘nothing to do’ with Communism. This bipolar existence has led to the Labour Party being infiltrated by Trotskyites – i.e. the followers of the deluded Leon Trotsky – at numerous times in its history, with the so-called ‘militant tendency’ probably being one of the most public expressions of this ‘entryism’. Trotskyites pretend to be ‘revolutionary’ in spirit, and even make use of revolutionary rhetoric, whilst working behind the scenes to attain political power and influence within a capitalist society, by collaborating with that very same capitalist system. Trotskyism, as a consequence, is full of contradictions and bourgeois sentiment designed to mislead the Working Class and divert it away from a truly ‘Marxist-Leninist’ revolution. This collaboration with capitalism and the Bourgeois State, the Trotskyites term ‘Socialism’, and mislead young and old alike into joining this or that ‘Socialist’ movement. This Trotskyite ‘Socialism’ is not ‘Socialism’, but rather a fake bourgeois counterfeit designed to retain the capitalist status quo – whist claiming to the gullible that it has been ‘over-thrown’. Prime examples of this Trotskyite distortion are the various incarnations of the Socialist Party, and the so-called Socialist Workers Party. As the Labour Party proscribes Communists from joining it, the Marxist-Leninist influence is either non-existant, or very well hidden. Many have suggested that ‘Momentum’ – which appears to exist to get Jeremy Corbyn into 10 Downing Street – is simply the latest (and more sophisticated) incarnation of the Trotskyite infiltration (i.e. ‘entryism’) into the Labour Party. As politicians acting within a liberal, democratic, capitalist setting cannot (and do not) advocate the over-throw of the Bourgeois State (and its oppressive capitalism) by the Working Class that suffer because of it, this compromise with Trotskyism dove-tales with ‘realistic’ political expectations premised upon short-term reformism. A politician like Jeremy Corbyn can be presented to appear as an ‘Everyman’, seeming to some to be a Marxist, to others a Trotskyite, and perhaps to a few a ‘Marxist-Leninist’. The point is that he is playing his hand very carefully to include as many people as possible, speaking at a Communist May Day Parade – whilst also serving to inspire the Trotskyite Socialist left. What he actually thinks is difficult to discern, as the one-thing a successful politician must never do in a capitalist system, is give-away exactly what he or she thinks. In the meantime, the Labour Party is being supported by some Marxist-Leninists and rejected by others, but is being universally supported by the Trotskyite ‘Socialist’ movement. This reality may serve to demonstrate the ‘feel’ of the Labour Party in general, and its ideological direction under Jeremy Corbyn inparticular. Why would some Marxist-Leninists support Labour? It can only be an ‘expedient’ move aimed to weaken the ruling classes and (temporarily) improve the living conditions of the Working Class (which has been suffering under a brutal Tory Austerity since 2010). Other Marxist-Leninists reject Labour out of hand, simply because of its Trotskyite tendencies, and unwillingness to ‘over-throw’ capitalism through a direct confrontation. The Trotskyites support Labour because they are quite happy with its collaboration with capitalism and see this very much as a completed ideological project. As a result, the up-turn in Labour’s fortunes is not as important for Marxist-Leninists as it is for Trotskyites, as all Marxist-Leninists know that the bourgeois political system is designed to repeat itself every decade or so, so that the rule of capital is maintained. For the Trotskyites, the assumed (coming) success of Labour will signify the end of a process, whilst the Marxist-Leninists understand that political success and failure within a bourgeois political system is part of an ongoing class antagonism and (historical) dialectical unfolding. This is why the Trotskyite sharks are circling Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, and looking forward to enjoying political power whilst wallowing in capitalist contradiction – the Marxist-Leninists, on the other hand, are working to dialectically finish capitalism off once and for all!

Supporting the CPB’s Dialectical Approach

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Communist Party of Great Britain – Marxist-Leninist (CPGB-ML) rhetorically attacks the public image of the Communist Party of Britain (CPB) wherever and whenever it can – whilst ignoring the Communist Party of Britain – Marxist-Leninist (CPB-ML), the New Communist Party (NCP) and the Revolutionary Communist Group (RCG), etc. This is because the CPB is viewed as the legitimate historical descendent of the original CPGB (dissolved 1991). The founders of the CPGB-ML were originally in the (non-Marxist-Leninist)  Socialist camp – and this is why their attacks on the CPB are distinctly Trotskyite in nature. There is a broad range of Marxist-Leninist views within the CPB – with the leadership expressing expedient policies suitable for action within a liberal democratic process. This approach is fully inaccordance with Marxist-Leninist ideology, and does not depart from it. The critical error in this Red Youth Article is its use of a one-sided dialectics, designed not to collectively further the working class (or clarify contemporary socio-economic circumstances) – but rather is an ongoing attempt for the CPGB-ML to seize (what its members perceive as) the hegemonic power that the CPB possesses. This is an infantile expression of a petty bourgeois power struggle – Trotsky would be proud of this approach, a it waters-down working class collectivity, inspires derision and opens the field for a total bourgeois domination of the political terrain, and any and all political processes. The CPBG-ML targets the CPB because it is the only ‘official’ British representative at the International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties – which is an internationalist movement founded in 1998 – and which invites only those mass parties considered truly Communist and Revolutionary in nature.

London: May Day March (1.5.2017)

20170501_115644

Thousands of people (holding various and diverse leftwing political views) converged upon the Clerkenwell Green area of Farringdon (opposite the Marx Memorial Library), to celebrate ‘labour’ and the ‘solidarity’ of the international working class. This is one of the few events that gathers Trotskyites and Marxist-Leninists, Maoists and bourgeois leftists together in equal number. As usual the parasitic (Trotskyite) Socialist Workers Party set-up its stalls outside of all major public transport exits, as a means to give-out its propaganda leaflets and placards to unsuspecting marchers. These marchers (who are not members of the SWP, and probably do not support Trotskyite revisionism) then unwittingly carry this SWP nonsense for free, whilst the SWP members never participate in the marches they infiltrate. When the march starts off, the SWP stalls are quickly shut-up and moved to the end location of the march – where the deceitful SWP anti-Marxist-Leninist indoctrination begins all over again!  This diversity of leftism is evident in the many different groups all trying to sell their various magazines and journals to one another’s followers, often failing unless given-out for free. Many wander about elucidating on this or that matter, often espousing bourgeois leftist rhetoric, rather than any genuine Scientific Socialist understanding. On the other hand, if you listen carefully to some of the older people, true leftwing Socialist and Communist understanding is evident. What is one of the defining points of London’s May Day March is that many people from abroad attend simply to be in the city that Karl Marx lived within, and wrote much of his defining theory. The British leftwing is not united in the traditional sense, but split into many factions all striving to establish hegemony over the Scientific Socialist middle ground, each with their own unique take upon current dialectical interpretation. The Labour Party. for instance, is a sticking point for the Communist left. Being a bourgeois revisionist out-fit that has often (historically) betrayed the very working class it has claimed to represent, the Communist left (such as the Communist Party of Great Britain – Marxist-Leninist and the Revolutionary Communist Group) is generally scathing about its history, its capitalist friendly policies, its middle class tendencies and the behaviour of its current MPs, (quite rightly pointing-out Labour’s imperialist and revisionist priorities). Other elements, such as the Communist Party of Britain (often just called the ‘Communist Party’), has retained a historical link with the Unions, and through the Unions – the Labour Party (despite the fact that the Labour Party prohibits Communists being members of it as individuals, and has rejected the idea of the Communist Party formerly affiliating with it in the past). The irony here, is that many CPB members do not support the Labour Party due to its bourgeois, capitalist embracing policies, despite the fact that the CPB leadership has called upon its members to support Jeremy Corbyn (and by default the Labour Party he leads) in the upcoming 2017 General Election. If Trotskyism is removed from the picture (due to its collaboration with capitalism and fascism), then it has to be said that each faction of the British Communist Movement manifests an important and valid aspect of the complete dialectical truth. The Labour Party is bourgeois and revisionist, but it also remains the only and most likely vehicle for Socialists and Communists to be elected into Parliament, but this is a subject that each individual must carefully think about and decide for themselves. Today, at least, the whole world met in London and marched together!

C0-Op Bank – Lurching to the Right

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

As far as I am concerned, the Western banking system (and all banks within it) are thoroughly bourgeois and supportive of cut-throat capitalism. In fact, such financial institutions are the quintessential essence of this brutal and self-serving capitalist mode of class exploitation, and this is doubly so for the so-called ‘Co-Operative Bank’ that claims to have its roots within 19th century ‘Socialist’ (i.e. ‘Unionist’) movements of the workers. Today, I am hearing one story after another, emanating from various leftwing sources, that state a number of leftwing groups (such as those dealing with Palestinian rights, Cuban revolutionary freedom, and the study of great Soviet leaders), have come under such concerted and aggressive attacks from the ‘Co-Op Bank’, that decades old accounts have had be closed, and ‘new’ banking avenues sought after. The Co-Op idea did not have its roots in the Scientific Socialism of Marx and Engels, but rather in the ‘Utopian’ (and religiously based) Socialism that generally supported the bourgeois status quo (mirroring Trotskyism), and which had no intention of supporting Marxist-led revolution. This is why those groups being attacked by the Co-Op Bank today, are inherently linked to Marxist-Leninist movements, and by implication, to Russia. It is clear that the Co-Op Bank is following the anti-Russian dictates of the Tory government, which in turn is being directed by the US and EU. All leftists should withdraw their money from the Co-Op Bank and destroy it legally from within! After-all, the Co-Op Bank has been complicit in the destruction of the British economy (as part of the greedy bankers system), and has remained ‘quiet’ about the injustices of banker-led ‘Austerity’ against the people. The greedy banks are bailed-out whilst the ordinary people are made to suffer for their incompetence.

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) – Deconstructing a Trotskyite

Author Christopher Hitchens

‘Of course, I do everything for money.’

(Christopher Hitchens)

Christopher Hitchens was born a privileged bourgeois (i.e. middle class) person, who was educated in Britain’s public school, before attending Oxford University and reading philosophy, politics and economics. As a student, he was a Member of the Labour Party, before being expelled in 1967 for opposing the Vietnam War. It is logical to assume that at this time in his life, his ideological viewpoint was defined as Marxist-Leninist, as he certainly espoused an opposition to capitalist war, imperialism, colonialism and racism. However, all this changed when he encountered the work of Soviet dissident Victor Serge, although it is certainly true that Hitchens had been taken with the works of George Orwell before that time. His conversion to the religion of Trotskyism can be traced through a foundation laid by George Orwell’s anti-Soviet writings, confirmed and strengthened by Victor Serge’s direct ideological inv olvement with the counter-revolutionary movement of Leon Trotsky. When Trotsky’s power grab in the Soviet Union failed in the mid-1920’s (following the death of Lenin), Trotsky switched tactics to that of attempting to’bring down’ and ‘destroy’ the USSR from within, fuelling discontent and rebellion throughout a Soviet population whose lives had improved immeasurably since the 1917 Russian Revolution. The capitalist West, seeing an opportunity to destroy the Soviet Union, assisted the Trotskyite movement from without, in an attempt to ferment a counter-revolution that would destroy Soviet Communism, and initiate a modern (bourgeois left) capitalist society administered by Trotsky and his cronies. Victor Serge was one of these cronies – whose counter-revolutionary activities are falsely eulogised by the Trotskyite left, where every villain is transformed into a hero.

The defining feature of Trotskyism is its dishonesty. Trotskyites share a common ideological bond with Adolf Hitler in that both assume that ‘lying’ is a legitimate political activity. This dishonesty is most obvious in the reluctance of Trotskyite groups and individuals to openly admit their ‘Trotskyite’ affiliations. This is a mainstay in the Trotskyite left’s ability to continue to attract and recruit the politically naive, and the easily led, by ‘pretending’ that they alone represent the ‘true’ Communist movement. If this were true, why not clearly state on all descriptive literature that such movements are ‘Trotskyite’ in nature? Trotskyites do not openly advertise their ideological affiliations because they know that as soon as it is understood that they follow the bourgeois left ideology of Trotskyism, it is also understood that such movements do not, in fact, follow revolutionary Marxism or Leninism. Trotskyites do not clearly state their ideological affiliation because such an honest and open policy would immediately indicate their bourgeois, corrupt, and counter-revolutionary status. The point of such people as George Orwell, Victor Serge and Christopher Hitchens, is to sully true revolutionary working class politics, and replace it with a bourgeois sham, or parody of ‘revolution’, where everything stays the same for the workers, but the White middle class feel better about themselves. A study of the life of Christopher Hitchens, is in fact a study of the ‘fetishisation’ of the revolutionary path of the working class, by a White, privileged, middle class man, who thought that what he had to say as an individual member of the bourgeoisie, was more important than the ‘collective’ revolutionary path of the working class. The hypocrisy that underlay Hitchens’ later political mercenariness, can be clearly discerned by his backing of New Labour’s neo-colonial ‘oil’ wars in the Middle East, and his whole-sale abandonment of anti-racism and peace activism (strong elements within Marxist-Leninism).

As his Trotskyism allowed for the distortion and misinterpretation of Marxism, Hitchens became something of a mouthpiece justifying ‘Islamophobia’ from the British left. This essentially racist attitude mirrored that of Trotsky, and as the mainstream press in the West was busy peddling anti-Muslim racism, Hitchens – as a White member of the privileged Bourgeoisie – was invited to express his anti-Islamic views throughout the UK and USA media – gaining much right-wing support in the process. Hitchens’ racism toward non-White people was camouflaged by a thin veneer that masqueraded as a Marxist critique of religion. However, this perversion of interpretation demonstrates exactly how Trotskyites misrepresent the very Marxism they claim to uphold. This is because Trotskyites exist within a ‘deluded’ interpretation of material reality, which is in fact a ‘mirage’. Trotskyites actually occupy a parody of historical materialism, where they firmly operate through the very inverted mind-set that Marx exposed as the basis of the bourgeois class. This is why the Trotskyite interpretation of Marxism is not ‘Marxist’, but rather a bourgeois inversion designed to disempower the working class, prevent the working class from uniting, and present ‘racism’ as real, religion as ‘evil’. Marx never said religion was ‘evil’ (as he rejected such Judeo-Christian notions as ‘good’ and ‘evil’), as Hitchens’ suggests, in fact Marx stated that theistic religion is a product of an inverted imagination, and that once this is abandoned, the human intellect begins to function the ‘right way around’. The working class throws-off the yoke of inverted religion ‘collectively’, and not with a personal age to grind, as suggested by the behaviour of Hitchens throughout his life. The bourgeois delusion that Hitchens presents, is that of a White bourgeois, who can, through the weight of his class privilege, gain access to State media and perpetuate his particular creed of middle class sentimentality. His pointless middle class ‘fetish’ attacks on religion (often facilitated by an equally ‘Trotskyite’ BBC), were only matched in their deluded sophistry by his attacks on the USSR and its history. These two attacks often ‘blended’ when Hitchens tried to laughingly convince the Western world that Lenin and Stalin were ‘religionists’ that founded and administered an ‘atheistic’ Soviet State. His lies about the Soviet Union are many and numerous and would justify a separate study. Suffice to say, Hitchens was a bourgeois Trotskyite who dedicated his life to destroying any genuine working class revolution by reducing all politics to the fetish of the capitalist individual.

The Trump Fetish

I was asked to write a few words for the Buddhist-Marxism Alliance (UK) site regarding the election of Donald Trump from a Marxist-Leninist perspective – look away now, if leftwing viewpoints offend you:

‘The BMA (UK) condemns the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America, but would remind Comrades that this does not represent a ‘failure’ of the US capitalist system, but rather its exact opposite. In other words, the liberal democracy founded by a group of privileged (racist) White men in 1776, is functioning exactly as it was intended to do. The bourgeois ‘moneyed’ class must a) maintain the capitalist system at all and any cost, and b) retain their dominant (ethnic) position within that capitalist system. All other ethnic and cultural groups may participate in the US capitalist system, that is true, but only from a subordinate (and inherently ‘unequal’ position). When the Socialist and Communist (Marxist-Leninist) left (from both inside and outside of the US) respond with such rhetoric that states the US system has somehow ‘failed’ because it has ‘elected’ a White, racist male, it is buying into the ‘normalisation’ of the capitalist system, and the Trotskyite idea that capitalism can be ‘reformed’ without being over-thrown. It must be remembered that it is ‘capitalism’ that generates racism, and it is capitalism that must be continuously and ruthlessly criticised to facilitate the historical transition into Socialism. For Marxist-Leninists, this means the refusal to turn the election of Donald Trump into a ‘fetish’, and the continued pursuance of dialectical analysis in the service of the working class.’
