The Chinese Anti-Falun Gong Cult World Alliance Welcomes Westerners

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Falun Gong cult does not represent China’s modern or traditional culture. People of Chinese ethnicity around the world understand this fact, but many in the West are ignorant to this fact. This should not be surprising, as the Falun Gong cult is a ‘racist’ anti-China construct, developed in the West as part of the US Cold War policy to bring-down the Communist government of China. What is interesting is that despite a steady stream of ‘fake news’ and ‘disinformation’ published through the CIA-financed Minghui Network (which includes the Epoch Times and NTDTV, etc), this policy will not be successful due to a world-wide Chinese solidarity and resistance. The Falun Gong cult will not prevail because the Chinese people world-wide will not allow it to prevail. In the meantime, the Falun Gong cult news outlets continue to function like any news network, broadcasting weather reports, banal cooking programmes and mindless reality TV shows. In between these programmes is issued a bizarre anti-China rhetoric of ever disparate false news stories and allegations of human rights abuses – this continues as Li Hongzhi orders one vulnerable teenager after another to self-immolate.

Laughably, the Falun Gong cult, as a means to justify its criminal behaviour, states that Li Hongzhi (its founder who has developed extensive health problems whilst living a life of luxury in the US), is the ‘omnipotent cosmic master Buddha’! If those who fall under his brain-washing spell give him enough money, and sign over their property to him, they too can achieve this wondrous state by ‘breathing deeply’! The reality of Falun Gong cult practice suggests quite another outcome. Falun Gong cult members are regularly deprived of food and water, tied-up, psychologically and physically tortured, and in the case of the very young – sexually abused. When individuals have managed to escape this dangerous cult, they have had to spend time in hospital as a means to try and regain their health, For many, however, the years of systematic abuse and suffering means that despite extensive and compassionate care, they can never regain their health. Even when qualified Daoist masters have assessed the Falun Gong cult technique – they have revealed at least 28 life-threatening errors and bad medical practices. Indeed, during March, 2006, Li Guodong (李国栋) – the head of NTDTV anti-China propaganda – suddenly dropped dead from liver cancer. Li Guodong had been declared an ‘Immortal Buddha’ by Falun Gong cult founder Li Hongzhi shortly before his death. During June, 2006, the chief scientist and medical doctor of the Falun Gong cult – Feng Lili (封莉莉) suddenly dropped dead of pancreatic cancer. Again, Li Hongzhi had previously declared Feng Lili an ‘Immortal Buddha’. In July, 2009, the chief editor of the Epoch Times in Japan – Zuo Tenggong (佐藤贡) – suddenly dropped dead… These deaths are not isolated incidences, but are part of the broader phenomenon of Falun Gong cult poor health and sudden death. It is rumoured that Li Hongzhi is in and out of hospital in the US due to poor health caused by his cultish practice, being kept alive by his US spy-masters at any cost. In fact, Li Hongzhi may have died sometime ago…

The Falun Gong cult is NOT an indigenous Chinese cultural or spiritual movement. Its methods are premised upon a ‘racist’ disregard for Chinese history, culture and political self-determination. The Falun Gong cult was not developed in China – but in a smoke-filled room of ‘White men’ in the CIA Offices situated in Washington DC. The Falun Gong cult is medically dangerous, and is anti-China and anti-Communist in both design and function. All ethnic Chinese people around the world understand these facts and are striving to work together to protect the Chinese Motherland from this external threat to its stability and prosperity. An interesting development is that there is now a growing network of consciously ‘aware’ Westerners’ (and other ‘non-Chinese’) who now understand the corruption that underlies the operations of the Falun Gong cult, and who help to expose and check its influence. This world-wide defence of China is required to prevent national governments (such as Australia in 2009), making fools of themselves and siding with the Falun Gong cult. The Falun Gong cult is ran from the US and is racist in nature. All right-minded Westerners must help the Chinese world community to prevent the spread of this dangerous and threatening teaching. This action will save numerous lives and make the world a better place to live in peace and harmony.

When Falun Gong cult members ‘escape’ the clutches of Li Hongzhi, the Communist Party of China (CPC) guarantees their rights and will make every effort to provide medical care and psychological healing. This has always been the case. However, as hundreds of former Falun Gong cult members have been rehabilitated, the Falun Gong operating out of the US falsely claims that these individuals have been ‘tortured’, ‘imprisoned’ and even ‘killed’. The further lie is that organs are stolen from dead bodies. Even a slight understanding of medical knowledge states that organs taken from dead bodies are no good for transplant, and are medically worthless. Communist China encourages Chinese citizens to ‘donate’ their organs when ‘near’ death to save the lives of other people who need transplants, if they should choose to do so. So many citizens do this as a matter of course, that Communist China has no need to ‘harvest’ organs from the bodies of executed criminals. One person who the Falun Gong cult claimed to have been killed (and their organs harvested), is ‘Yang Jun’ (杨俊) from Chongqing, who was supposedly beaten to death at just 18 years old. In fact, Yang Jun escape from the Falun Gong cult (like hundreds of others), and now lives a happy and normal life in China. Yang Jun’s mother has gone on record stating that her son is very happy and glad to be ‘free’ of the terrible Falun Gong cult. Together, the world community can wipe-out the Falun Gong cult, so that its victims can be saved, and its leaders tried for Crimes Against Humanity and imprisoned.

South Korea Anti-Falun Gong Protests Shock the US! (2013)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

South Korea has been a US colony since 1945 – with an intensification of Christianisation and consumerist brain-washing of its indigenous citizens following the Korean War (1950-1953). The US annually pumps billions of dollars into its South Korean colony in an attempt to create the ‘illusion’ of an affluent ‘capitalist’ economy, when the reality is that many South Koreans live ‘imprisoned’ within the capitalist nightmare of abject poverty. Under orders from their US pay-masters, the South Korean government only issues passports (and visas to travel) to already wealthy South Koreans (usually working in the propped-up automobile industry). Freedom of movement in and out of South Korea is strictly limited, and involves carefully selected groups heading either to or from the US mainland. These are South Koreans who are considered suitably ‘Westernised’, and trusted to reject their own indigenous culture and religions.

On November 4th, 2013, the Korea-China Exchange Association – through its ‘Korean Compatriots News Website’, reported that the US brain-washing control of South Koreans was severely ‘tested’ – when at least 50 South Korean men, women and children gathered in Ansan city (Gyeonggi Province) – to openly protest about the dangerous US-backed cult known as the ‘Falun Gong’. These protests soon peacefully spread across many other cities in South Korea – to the astonishment of the US-controlled South Korean Authorities. When an elderly Korean man was asked why he was protesting, he said that the Falun Gong spread lies and falsehood amongst the South Korean people, and take advantage of the vulnerable and the easily exploitable. Due to the ‘hidden’ poverty in South Korea, the Falun Gong operate out of general sight, working in the impoverished areas, pursuing a fervent anti-China policy designed to prevent the South Korean poor from turning toward ‘Socialism’, Communist North Korea, and Communist China. On many occasions, North Korea and Communist China have jointly issued official statements welcoming ALL South Korean citizens to settle outside of the US-controlled colony of South Korea. All such migrants from US tyranny are guaranteed a house, food, a job, education and comprehensive and free medical care.

On October 25th, 2013, spontaneous anti-Falun Gong protests spread yet again across South Korean cities, with the numbers growing with every demonstration. Placards called for the immediate ‘banning’ of the Falun Gong, and for the South Korean government to cut-off all direct ties with the US. Other placards called the Falun Gong ‘criminal’ and drew attention to various ‘sexual’ crimes carried-out against South Korean children (and subsequently covered-up by the South Korean government). One protestor stated that South Korea should have good relations with North Korea and Communist China, and that the US military should be ‘expelled’ from South Korea by the South Korean government. Another protestor said that they welcomed China’s ‘PLA’ into South Korea – to ‘liberate’ the area from the influence of US-led capitalist tyranny. Whether the South Korean government will continue to allow these anti-Falun Gong demonstrations is open to question – given the naturally ‘anti-imperialist’ and ‘anti-American’ tone of these demonstrations. Obviously the US notion of ‘freedom of speech’ does not extend to subjugated colonies of Asian peoples.

韩民众街头集会抗议法轮功
发布时间:2013-12-19 10:00:46来源:凯风网进入电子报

    韩中交流协会主办的《韩中同胞新闻网站》11月4日报道:10月25日韩国50余名示威者在京畿道安山、水原等多地街头集会抗议法轮功,并称这种形式的抗议活动在韩国是首次。

    10月25日,(韩国)国内街头出现反法轮功集会。

    当天50余名韩国民众参加集会,示威者称“由于法轮功的政治和宗教问题,极大损害韩中关系,对国家利益毫无益处”。当天参加集会的一位人士说:“现在国内法轮功的示威和集会正在全国蔓延,驻韩中国使领馆门前、仁川、平泽港地铁入口、中国人密集区都有,并有扩散趋势。非常容易引发公共场所秩序混乱甚至骚乱,特别是华人间因观念不同而导致的恶语相加甚至冲突事件频繁发生,令警方经常出动。影响社会治安,还引发了当地民众的不满”,他对此深表忧虑。

他还说:“此次反法轮功集会是对频繁且无理的法轮功集会的反制,以此坚守韩国社会安定和我们民族的精神文化。”

此次集会在京畿道安山、水原等多地的街头举行。当天参加集会的民众手持“我们不要法轮功”、““警惕背离韩国情绪的法轮功,守护韩中友好关系”等标语,高喊口号,吸引了中国同胞和当地民众的关注。

有不少人误认为此次集会仍是法轮功集会,“为什么不是周日,法轮功又吵吵嚷嚷?”民众都用异样的眼光看待集会。在得知不是支持法轮功,而是反对法轮功活动后,当即表示理解和赞同,说这次组织得很好。(作者:草青)

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.

The CIA-Generated Myth of Liu Xiaobo (刘晓波) [1955-2017] and the 14th Dalai Lama Connection

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The historical fact that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was behind the fabrication of the ‘Pro-Tibetan Movement’ (acting as a means for the United States of America to bring-down the Communist regime of Mainland China from that country’s Tibetan region) is no longer denied in the West, and its details can be read on Wikipedia (an apologist for US imperialism, Zionism and capitalism), as well as in a number of English language books (that in no way can be considered ‘sympathetic’ to Communist China). In recent years, Wikileaks has confirmed that no deaths occurred in Tiananmen Square in 1989 (see: Wikileaks: no bloodshed inside Tiananmen Square, cables claim), and that the entire affair was a very well orchestrated ‘fake news’ event perpetuated by the BBC and its US news counter-parts in the days before the internet, and when Mainland China was not directly connected to the West through its media. At that time, people living outside of China had no way of verifying what the Western media was saying, and had been subjected to a constant barrage of anti-China, anti-Communist propaganda emanating from the US since at least 1945. This brain-washing procedure was not only aimed at Westerners, but also at diasporic Chinese people living outside of China (with US anti-Communist China propaganda being published and distributed from Taiwan [in the Chinese language] throughout the many Chinese communities of the world). As part of the continued attempt to perpetuate the racist (imperialist) myth of Judeo-Christian dominance throughout the world, this US-led propaganda depicted Communist China as the very incarnation of ‘evil’ in the world, and manifesting the obvious ‘Crusader’ mentality, called for the destruction of China’s government and its regime. Obviously, the masses of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) completely rejects this Eurocentric and racist misinterpretation of China, her history, her culture and her political system.

The 14th Dalai Lama was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1989 for his support of the CIA-led disinformation campaign that presented the false image of thousands of students being killed in Tiananmen Square – apparently for protesting against the Communist government. This is a lie. No massacre occurred – but Chinese students were present at the time – protesting Western interference in internal Chinese affairs, and acting in support of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Wikileaks presents evidence that President Ronald Reagan (supported by British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher) called for events in Tiananmen Square to be deliberately misrepresented, as part of the continuous US policy to bring-down the USSR (which was falling apart under Gorbachev at the time – another ‘winner’ of the Noble Peace Prize for aiding the destruction of his own country’s Communist System in 1990). Obviously, the Noble Peace Prize is a bourgeois institution in the pocket of the USA, that has been operating an openly ‘anti-Socialist’ policy since at least 1945. Even in 1935, when the Norwegian Noble Peace Prize Committee awarded the prize to a German pacifist and convicted ‘traitor’ (a verdict upheld in 1992) named Carl von Ossietzky – members of that Committee ‘resigned’ in protest to Ossietzky’s perceived ‘leftist’ political viewpoints despite the fact he was a social democrat who rejected ‘Communism’. He perpetrated the historical ‘lie’ that a re-arming ‘democratic’ Germany was rebuilding its airforce by having pilots trained in the USSR. In fact, Germany had been part of the 14 country anti-Bolshevik alliance that had invaded Revolutionary Russia in 1918 – precipitating the so-called ‘Russian Civil War’ (1918-1921) – and as one of those 14 countries participating in this anti-Communist imperialist action – was eventually and soundly defeated by the Red Army. Again, US disinformation suggests that the USSR ‘collaborated’ with capitalism and fascism – when the opposite is obviously the case. Today, Communist China’s considered opinion is that the Noble Peace Prize is a good idea that could be used for the maintenance of World Peace and Harmony amongst the different ‘self-determining’ Nations – but that at the moment, it is a mouth-piece manipulated and guided by US neo-colonial policy, and as such, is used to perpetuate war and destruction (the very opposite intention to its own founding principles and functioning propaganda).

In his youth, Liu Xiaobo fully benefited from Communist China’s Socialist System. This comprehensive approach to re-building China included State provided full-employment, housing, medical care, nutritious food, and an entirely ‘free’ education system. Liu Xiaobo (and his family) were uplifted from a state of imperialist-inflicted poverty, and were reconstituted through Socialist planning, into entirely ‘new’ and dignified human-beings. Historical and biographical material suggests that Liu Xiaobo was fully aware of this fact, and in his youth openly supported the Communist Party of China (CPC), and considered himself (and his family) to be active members of the Revolutionary Masses as represented by the workers of China. In 1984, Liu Xiaobo graduated from Beijing Normal University, and four years later earned a Doctorate in literature and Art. However, in the 1990’s, he became involved in the ‘Democracy for China’ (民主中国 – Min Zhu Zhong Guo) Movement – a semi-clandestine CIA-funded project in China – that was allocated material (and moral) support from the ‘National Democracy Foundation’ in the US. This is where Liu Xiaobo ‘betrayed’ his country and the legacy of the Communist Revolution in China. Whereas China threw-off imperialist (Western) oppression in 1949 – Liu Xiaobo took the personal decision to re-engage with this racist form of oppression, and in so doing endanger every person living within Communist China. The capitalist West is the epicentre of all fascism and racism in the world, with the US and its EU running dog killing hundreds of thousands and even millions of people annually, throughout the world, as a means to maintain the dominance of the unjust and highly exploitative capitalist system. Why did Liu Xiaobo turn on his own country? The simple answer is ‘greed’ – exactly the same reason the 14th Dalai Lama turned on the Tibetan region of China – and abandoned the Tibetan people in 1959. No one in the modern and Socialist Tibet (not even the monks in the monasteries) remember this other traitor – or consider him in anyway a ‘leader’ or ‘representative’ of the Tibetan people. This hypocrite calls for ‘peace’ amongst his wealthy millionaire supporters in the West (usually from the luxury of a five star hotel in the US), whilst his office actively calls for ‘violence in Tibet and China (very much like that other CIA-concocted anti-China Movement – the ‘Falun Gong’ Cult).

Liu Xiaobo’s traitorous activities were eventually uncovered by China’s Intelligence Services, and he was tried and found ‘guilty’ of ‘Treason’ and crimes against the Chinese State in 2009. During his trial, it was revealed how the US had transferred funds to the PRC for the personal use of Liu Xiaobo, to cause as much social disorder and disruption in China as possible (which his ‘Democratic Movement’ carried-out in 1995 and 1999). Despite these despicable crimes against the Chinese people (and in the name of ‘foreign’ powers), China’s Judiciary found him ‘guilty’ of Crimes Against the State – and sentenced him to 11 years imprisonment – with the suspension of his political rights for 2 years. This was a very lenient sentence considering the gravity of his crimes. Of course, as the US and CIA-involvement in Liu Xiaobo’s criminal activities was made public during his trial, the US government immediately initiated a damage limitation exercise that saw the criminal Liu Xiaobo being granted the Noble Peace Prize for 2010 – together with the 14th Dalai Lama immediately issuing a statement of support, calling for the immediate release of Liu Xiaobo (falsely referring to him as a ‘freedom fighter’), and ignoring his mercenary motivations and criminal past. Liu Xiaobo was not a Buddhist, and had no personal interests in the Western notion of ‘Human rights’ – which can be seen from the social damage his criminal activities caused (harming individual Chinese men, women and children). Despite being a criminal that should have received the Death Sentence for his crimes – Liu Xiaobo was treated leniently by the Chinese State Judiciary – and toward the end of his life (when he was dying of cancer), he was treated with compassion by the Chinese State, and received the best medical care available (free of charge). Liu Xiaobo was a common criminal and not a hero. He took from the Communist Chinese State – but abused all the advantages that Chinese Socialism granted him. He had no thought for his family, the Chinese people, or the millions that died in China fighting for his political and cultural freedoms. His response to the collective suffering of the Chinese people, and the compassion of the Chinese State – was for him to try and help racist foreigners in an attempt to destroy the Chinese Communist Revolution. No matter what the bourgeois, capitalist System throws at Communist China – this can never be allowed because it is against the interest of the entirety of humanity.

The Fabrication of Burma in the Western Mind

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Author’s Note: As a Scientific Socialist, I do not unquestionably support the bourgeoisie system – but until we achieve a Socialist Revolution in the West, we are stuck with it, and must find some use for it. Although I am scholar specialising in Chinese philosophy and religion – and a practising Chinese Buddhist – I must state that I am irreligious and profess a support for science premised upon the study of a material universe (which includes Quantum Mechanics). Although I do not possess any notion of ‘faith’ in religion, and believe that religions should not hold political power, I am not opposed to religions per se. As long as it follows the law and does not cause harm to others, people are free to do as they will with their minds and bodies. However, as both a Socialist and a Buddhist, I consider myself a friend of Islam, and am perfectly aware of the Islamophobic lies and disinformation that currently emanates from the West. On a Muslim organised ‘peace march’ through London recently, my family and I were the only non-Muslims present. However, the polarised fashion the Western press is treating the situation in Myanmar (i.e. ‘Burma’ – I use the names interchangeably), both the wisdom systems of Buddhist and Islamic scholarship are being compromised and side-lined for the establishment of a purely Eurocentric (and racist) paradigm which has its foundations within the Western, imperialist presence in Asia. Obviously, I reject ALL Buddhist and Islamic derived violence, and would call upon the Burmese Government Authorities, the Buddhist Burmese Authorities, and the Islamic Authorities (both within and outside the Rohingya community) to defuse the situation and take a step-back from psychological and physical violence, and let traditional Asian wisdom and knowledge take the place of Western-inspired race-hate. ACW (9.9.2017)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The West – that is Europe and the US – has been dominated for hundreds of years by the the capitalist economic system, and its supportive (middle class dominated) liberal, democratic system. Freedom is defined as any and all socio-economic, political or cultural expressions that directly benefit the middle class, and which legally facilitate the unbridled ability to exploit the working class. Invariably, the middle class is numerically small, but retains most of the political power, and controls the majority of the finance. It guarantees this power from generation to generation by its iron grip on the military and the police, and a bourgeois legal system that only theoretically extends rights to all citizens. In reality, the bourgeois legal system only extends those rights that an individual can financially prove should be applied to themselves and their situation. This amounts to the situation (for the numerically superior working class) of no money equals no rights. As capitalism requires an ever expanding market of exploitation to furnish its insatiable thirst for profit, the Western bourgeoisie eventually exported their capitalist system all over the world. Although challenged here and there in the 17th and 18th centuries, it was not until the 19th century (and the rise of Marxism) that its progress was seriously (although temporarily) checked (as seen in the 1848 Europe-wide uprisings, and the 1871 Paris Commune). It was not until the Russian Revolution of 1917 (led by VI Lenin), that saw a large swathe of humanity reject predatory capitalism for Scientific Socialism – soon to be join by Mao Zedong’s China in 1949. Obviously, the Western bourgeois world, in an attempt to retain its economic, political and military hegemony over the world (particularly after WWII), began a disinformation campaign that involved the media (in all its aspects) as well as the professional and amateur academic establishment, to fabricate an ‘alternative’ history and interpretation of world history and current affairs, that was designed to denigrate Socialism amongst the exploited workers of the West (with racism toward non-Whites being a major component), so that these Western workers voluntarily ‘distanced’ themselves from those elements of the International Working Class that already lived ‘freely’ in Socialist countries (falsely and inaccurately termed ‘Communist’ by a Western media that remained entirely ignorant of the philosophy of Scientific Socialism). This disinformation campaign inverted reality, and presented working class freedom as working class enslavement – with the implicit threat that should the Western workers over-throw the oppressive capitalist regime they currently suffer under, life would be worse for them, rather than better. An extra layer of bourgeois security was generated through the tolerance and selective support of fringe far-right political groups in the West that blamed all the inequalities within the capitalist system upon immigrants, and which encouraged race-hate and racially inspired violence and murder. These fascists groups were designed to operate within working class communities and use race-hate to stop those communities being infiltrated by Socialist propaganda and organised working class movements that aimed to over-throw the British capitalist system either by force of arms, or through the ballet box. These rightwing groups have been very successful in convincing working class people to vote for parties that advocate policies which are against their own class interests, or to boycott the voting system altogether, and refuse to vote for parties that represent working class interests. Whilst inappropriately voting or not voting, the working class is stripped of all its militancy and conscious awareness, and sits passively on the political sidelines suffering terribly from oppressive government policies – whilst doing nothing constructive about it.

Who will save the Rohingya?

What does this have to do with Burma (Myanmar)? The question that has to be asked is this; If the domestic working class in Britain can be manipulated to perceive the world in a manner that is against its own class interests, how easy is it for the Western media (and mainstream academia) to use racism, prejudice and discrimination to misrepresent what is happening in Burma? The answer, of course, is highly likely. The British East India Company – operating out of India – used the British Army in a number of invading wars against the indigenous Burmese people between 1824 and 1885 (during the three so-called Anglo-Burmese Wars), effectively (and actually) annexing the country in 1886, making Burma an extension of the British imperialist rule of India. This administration continued until 1948 – when the British Labour Party granted Burma full independence from British colonial rule. However, under British rule, the Burmese people were used as a virtual slave-labour force, with Christian missionaries being imported by the British to convert the predominantly Buddhist population (a standard model of destroying indigenous cultures to make the ethnic people easier to control). Any ethnic Burmese who resisted was harshly punished with imprisonment, torture or even execution. Just as the British had imported en mass Tamil (Hindu) workers into the predominantly Buddhist Sri Lanka, they also imported (en mass) Bengali Muslim workers into Burma. The point of this enforced migration and settlement was the deliberate propagation of ethnic tensions between the subjugated peoples of the British empire, so that they could not ‘unite’ against British rule – being too busy fighting one another’s presence. Of course, the Bengali Muslims are not ethically Burmese (or ‘Buddhist’), and today refer to themselves as ‘Rohingya’ – a term not recognised by the Myanmar government since 1982. During WWII, the imperial Japanese invaded Burma, and the British Authorities armed and trained the Bengali Muslims – making them a distinct fighting unit of the British Army in the resistance to the Japanese presence. However, the ethnic Burmese people, by and large, welcomed the invading Japanese as ‘liberators’ from British colonial rule. This led to a conflict between the ethnic (Buddhist) Burmese fighting for the Japanese, who opposed the British-supported Bengali Muslims who were attempting to annex the Arakan area of Burma, and integrate it with the Bengal part of India (or today’s Bangladesh). It is this British arming and encouraging of Bengali nationalism that is seen as the historical origin of the ‘violent’ and ‘murderous’ ethnic tensions that exist today between ethnic (Buddhist) Burmese and ethnic (Muslim) Rohingya in the Rakhine State of Western Myanmar. The Burmese Authorities take the position today that it is Rohingya nationalism that is driving the inter communal violence, and that the Rohingya resistance to ethnic Burmese rule is now funded (in-part) by Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic States that finance and train the various elements of Islamic extremism and Islamic terrorist groups that exist in the world. Perhaps one of the biggest (and saddest) ironies regarding this matter is the video clip of Hilary Clinton admitting during an interview that the US ‘manufactured’ Islamo-fascism (i.e. ‘Al Qaeda’) as a means to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan (the same ‘Al Qaeda’ that would carry-out the 911 attacks in New York).

Who will save the Rohingya?

Burmese Buddhists living in the Rakhine State view themselves as ‘ethnic’ inhabitants of Myanmar, and state that Islamic militants regularly attack their villages and Buddhist temples, carrying-out acts of rape, torture and murder. The point of this activity is to ‘cleanse’ the area of the ethnic Burmese and their Buddhist culture. In response, the Burmese Authorities have deployed the military to carry-out punitive expeditions into the Rohingya areas. Before examining whether any of this is true or not, Burma’s modern history has to be understood. After gaining its independence from the British in 1948, Burma refused to join the British Commonwealth (viewing it as a means for Britain to retain political influence and power throughout its former empire), and declared itself a ‘Socialist State’, with close political and economic ties to the Soviet Union – and later Communist China. As the Cold War developed, and the US anti-Communist disinformation spread throughout the world, Burma was presented not as a former British colony that had suffered terribly under British imperialist rule and was now attempting to independently re-build its economy (and culture) from the base-up, but rather as a despotic and ‘failed’ State that ‘oppressed’ its people, and applied ‘racist’ policies toward the Rohingya. In fact, the propagation of Rohingya nationalism by the British, ensured that the Bengali Muslims in Arakan remained firmly opposed to Socialism, acting as a pro-Western, pro-capitalist destabilising force in Burma. Unlike the pro-capitalist 14th Dalai Lama and his unrepresentative pro-Tibetan Movement, the Burmese Socialist Authorities (many of whom were Buddhist), as well as the Buddhist monastic community, remained (quite naturally) opposed to capitalist greed and oppression. As a philosophy, Buddhism at its base remain anti-capitalist a priori – but has become associated with immense wealth in the West due to movie stars, rock stars and the middle class embracing various aspects of distorted Japanese Zen and corrupted sects of Tibetan Buddhism, etc. Asian Buddhist temples that teach non-greed, non-hated, and non-delusion, are generally ‘ignored’ by many Westerners who have no interest in the associated Asian culture through which this genuine Buddhism has been transmitted. As a consequence, Burma has been misrepresented to the Western mind very much in a racist and mythological manner, following the bourgeois blue-print used to misrepresent Tibet as a means to destabilise Communist China. As a result, up until 2011, Burma was a ‘brutal’ military regime that oppressed its people – an interpretation encouraged by the US and its mouth-piece the United Nations (UN). The problem the West now has is one of transition for its previously anti-Burma rhetoric, with regards to its former media darling in the form of Burma’s now de facto leader –  Aung San Suu Kyi (the 1991 recipient of the Noble Peace Prize) – who (rather embarrassingly for her Western bourgeois supporters) remains resolutely ‘anti-Rohingya’ in the face of the capitalist world’s criticism of her leadership and her government’s punitive actions against the Rohingya people. The Chinese language press has reported that Aung San Suu Kyi personally requested that the US not use the term ‘Rohingya’ in its diplomatic communications, and that as reported in today’s Morning Star (9.9.2017) and the Chinese language press (see links below), Aung San Suu Kyi has also stated that videos and reports purportedly recording and showing the torture and abuse of Rohingya’s, are in fact the product of ‘fake’ news. Although Aung San Suu Kyi is a supporter of Western-style capitalism (which has only impoverished the Burmese people), and the liberal, democratic process, (as opposed to the centralised democracy of the Socialist System), her attitudes and behaviour appear to mimic those of the previous ‘Socialist’ Burmese leaders who continuously referred to the Rohingya as ‘invaders’ from India. In fact, Aung San Suu Kyi (agreeing with other Burmese officials), has routinely stated that Myanmar is currently under a sustained Islamo-fascist attack from a Rohingya-led Al Qaeda insurgency (funded by Saudi Arabia – an ally of the US and Israel), which aims to annex the Rakhine State – purging it of its Buddhist culture and ethnic Burmese people – and replacing it with an Islamic culture. In this regard, Aung San Suu Kyi cannot understand why the West refuses to support Myanmar in its fight against Islamic extremism, when it supports Israel without question, and any other movement in the world that opposes Islamo-fascism. Just because Aung San Suu Kyi might be an expressed ‘anti-Socialist’, does not mean that she automatically supports the Western Cold War rhetoric that privileged the Rohingya people when Burma was a Socialist State. The fact that she will not ‘bow’ to international pressure to alter her stance on this issue, demonstrates the strength of the anti-Rohingya feeling throughout the country she now leads.

Malaysia Myanmar Protest

The West has used Buddhism in the past as a means to try and destabilise the Tibetan part of China – probably since 1949 – and it would seem that a Western presence in Burma might well be up to its old tricks again. Just as it is well documented in Western sources that the CIA armed and trained Buddhist monks in Tibet that had taken vows of non-violence, it would seem that Buddhist monks that have taken vows of non-violence and non-hatred have been influenced in Myanmar to propagate race-hate amongst Muslims in that country. Why would protesting Buddhist monks hold-up placards in English – a language very few Burmese or Rohingya’s could read? Who are these placards meant to inform? Are Burmese Buddhist monks really leading protests against the Rohingya people? The answer appears to be ‘yes’ with the caveat that not all Buddhist monastic orders in Myanmar support protests or agree that Muslims should be demonised. The Buddhist lay and monastic vows form a psychological and physical barrier to any violent production of thought or action. Of course, the Western press ignores the Myanmar Buddhist establishment that continuously calls upon the Burmese Buddhist population to meditate upon loving kindness, and to act with charity, wisdom and compassion toward all beings – including the Rohingya Muslim community.  Just as important (and as equally ignored by the Western press), is the Rohingya representatives that continuously call for ‘peace’ from Burmese Muslims, and not to respond with violence to any provocation (this latter point is even ignored by the Islamic press in the West, which remains wedded to representing the Rohingya people as a disempowered and oppressed ‘ethnic minority’ in Myanmar – that is currently suffering a ‘genocide’). This one-sided and poorly informed viewpoint has even been endorsed by the leftwing British politician George Galloway recently, through his social media. This situation is unfortunate and appears to be representative of a ‘hidden’ agenda preferred by forces operating outside of Myanmar. Consider this; the 14th Dalai Lama lives a life of luxury in the West, selling books and charging large amounts of money for study courses conveying the distorted form of Buddhism he teaches, (whilst calling for the destruction of the Communist government of China, and for young people in China to ‘self-immolate’) all of which breaks the monastic rules he took in his youth, but the Western press maintains a continuous support for his antics and remains ‘silent’ about his excesses and hypocrisy. This is the same Western press that misrepresents an overwhelmingly ‘peaceful’ Buddhist establishment in Myanmar as being a hot-bed of extremist terrorism. This reads very much like the usual Eurocentric ‘divide and conquer’ strategy in effect.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Are the Rohingya Muslims terrorists? Certainly not. Did they exist in Burma before their mass importation into the area? Undoubtedly ‘yes’. What, then, is the problem? The problem is the historical Western, imperialist interference in the internal affairs of Burma (Myanmar) – an interference that is continuing today and causing all kinds of suffering in Rakhine State. It is reasonable to assume that the West wants Burma to rip itself apart using ethnic and religious disputes to fuel the fire of hatred and violence. Have certain Buddhist monks incited violence between ethnic Burmese and ethnic Rohingya? The answer is ‘Yes’. However, as these monks broke their monastic vows of ‘peace’ to do this, they should have been expelled from the Buddhist monastic Order (the ‘Sangha’), and then tried in a civilian court and imprisoned. This is what usually would happen in a Buddhist country, and it is telling that this action was not taken in Burma. Of course, it may be that Aung San Suu Kyi – who received moral support from the Buddhist Sangha whilst under house arrest – is reluctant to move against the Buddhist monastic establishment which has a very powerful influence over the opinions and actions of ordinary Burmese people. If the Buddhist Sangha called for the over-throw of Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese people would make short-work of ousting her from office. This explains her reluctance to ‘officially’ moderate the Burmese government’s stance on the Rohingya. Have innocent Rohingya been murdered? Yes – just as innocent Burmese Buddhists ave been murdered. Does the UN correctly reflect the problem in Burma? No. The UN is a mouth-piece for the neo-colonial policies of the US government, and its official announcements are always in line with current US foreign policy directives. Whilst advocating Islamophobia across the world, the US wants the Rohingya in Burma to appear to be a one-sided ‘victim’ in the ethnic violence perpetuated there. This is probably a hang-over from the days that the US wanted to bring-down the Socialist State in Burma – but just like the Al Qaeda the US developed in Afghanistan – the Islamic militants it created in Burma have now assumed a life of their own, and are effectively out of control. Although the Rohingya as an ethnicity are not terrorists, there is a minority that definitely uses violence to pursue political objectives. The problem has been that the Burmese military has attacked and punished large swathes of the Rohingya population – many of whom have had no connection with Islamic extremism or terrorism in Burma. This is an unjust situation involving both sides – but the Burmese people and the Rohingya must realise that they need to throw-off the destructive influence of the West, and in so doing reject the divisive politics of race and religion. Buddhists and Muslims can live together in peace in Burma, but this will take time, self-discipline, and an altruistic approach to social well-being.

DPRK: Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) Red Flag (Explained)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Workers’ Party of Korea (WKA) was founded in 1949 (with the support of the Soviet Union) from the merger of a number of Marxist-Leninist and anti-imperialist groups that covered all parts of Korea (including the South prior to its annexation by the United States).

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Its Red Flag represents its historical association with the Soviet Union and contains the usual hammer (representing industrial workers), and a sickle (representing agricultural workers), but also includes a central calligraphy brush traditional to Korean scholarship (representing intellectuals).

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

This addition to the Soviet Red Flag demonstrates Korea’s intellectual independence from the Soviet ideologues (despite their important historical association), and represents Korea’s unique departure from the more formal strictures of Marxist-Leninism. In many ways, the North Koreans interpret their Juche philosophy as an ‘improvement’ or ‘progression’ of Marxist-Leninist thinking – although this is a contested issue. The Juche philosophy views humanity as the driving force of history (and not ‘class’), a humanity that must be led by a strong military (for self-defence purposes).

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Although Western narratives try to shoe-horn Juche into Stalinism (suggesting that Stalinism was a departure from Marxist-Leninism) this is incorrect on both counts.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Stalin did not depart from Marxist-Leninism – but did have to apply this ideology during the most extraordinary of situations in the world. Similarly – Korean Juche – has nothing to do with the Soviet system – but is a unique Asian adaptation of Marxist-Leninism – perhaps involving a secular Confucian influence (hence the scholar’s brush). Whatever the case, the North Koreans have a right to self-defence and self-determination. Regardless of North Korea’s development of its own pathway – as a nation it still considers itself part of the International Communist Movement – and I have personally seen North Korean delegations visit the grave of Karl Marx in Highgate Cemetery on the anniversary of his death in march of each year (usually accompanying Communist Chinese representatives).

How Labour’s (2017) General Election Defeat Continues to Haunt the Ordinary British People

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The rightwing Tories represent the corporate establishment – that is middle and upper class cultural and business interests. This includes the non-payment of personal and corporate tax, and the rejection of any form of re-distributing wealth amongst the Working Class. in-short – the Tories represent a complete and total rejection of any form of Socialism and empowerment of the ordinary workers within a capitalist society. The Labour Party has not advocated Class Revolution since the early years of its inception (in the late 19th century), and even then such calls were half-hearted. When Socialist Members of the Labour Party renamed themselves ‘Communists’ around 1921 (in solidarity with Lenin’s Russian Revolution), they were expelled from the Labour Party – never to be re-admitted. This is why Labour’s call for Socialism remains thoroughly bourgeois in nature, and amounts to a collaboration with the forces of capitalism – rather than its over-throw. Even with this substantial compromise, however, the Conservative Party will not even consider what amounts to a ‘minor’ and downward re-distribution of wealth that would leave the capitalist system intact, and class privilege firmly in place. To this end the Tories are busy carrying-out two broad policies to prevent Jeremy Corbyn becoming a ‘Socialist’ Prime Minister: 1) mimicking certain peripheral Labourite policies (in an attempt to take votes away from Labour), and b) continuing unabated (and in an accelerated fashion) to ‘privatise’ the NHS and dismantle the Welfare State (inaccordance with EU legislation). As these services are cut, the tax-burden is not reduced, but continues to increase and be gathered by a bourgeois government that is re-distributing wealth in an ‘upward’ direction (through tax-cuts) – making the wealthier even richer in a manner that is quite pointless to the health of the British nation. In the meantime, the Tory government is using this ‘stolen’ wealth (paid for by the Working Class), to rage imperialist wars in support of US neo-colonial foreign policies (generally in securing oil supplies and revenue). What a despicable political party these Tories represent – which will not even allow a highly compromised version of Labourite Socialism to make life at least ‘tolerable’ for the majority of ordinary people in the UK – whilst the rich continue to live their lives of debauchery and excess.

North Korean Martial Arts Preserved in Northern China

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

What many people do not understand is that the martial art of Tae Kwon Do that spread across the world after the Korean War (1950-1953) was invented by the US imperialists after their defeat in that conflict. This was because most of the ‘real’ Korean martial arts masters livid in North Korea and supported the Socialist government for the empowerment of the ordinary Korean people. The US colony of South Korea is a Christianised fabrication with martial arts that stem from fascist Japan!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Not only this, but much of traditional Korean martial arts are preserved and practised in Northern Chinese provinces such as Jilin – where annual competitions and displays are held. Although ethnic Koreans living in China naturally dominate these events – Communist China is very proud when Chinese practitioners get anywhere near the top three positions in competition! The top picture is of a baking tool used in self-defence in North Korea termed the ‘Fighting Steamed-Dumpling Hammer’ (打糕槌 – Da Gao Chui). North Korea has a long history – once being apart of China – which a very rich and unique martial history. This is why many ethnic Koreans still live in North-East China and preserve their martial traditions.

Taking Rights Away to ‘Protect’ Citizens is Nothing but Fascism!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Terrorism is a historical issue, emanating from many different and distinct socio-economic conditions. It is also a highly ‘subjective’ issue that is used to demonise particular groups, political movements and religions, by those national governments and State Authorities that view their own military activities around the world to be ‘lawful’ and to exist ‘outside’ of the usual definition of ‘terrorism’. States that do not consider their otherwise highly destructive military actions against other groups to be ‘terrorism’, include the United States, the UK and Israel. Other countries on this list might include Saudi Arabia and (neo-Nazi) Western Ukraine, as well as numerous others. The demarcation appears to be clear – the US and its allies throughout the world can do as it pleases, but any resistance to this militarism is automatically termed ‘terrorism’, even though under International Law, every oppressed political, religious or ethnic group possesses the legal right to wage an armed resistance to that oppression. In this regard, the United Nations has issued various decisions against the USA and Israel, for example, stating that their military actions on numerous occasions have ‘violated’ International Law. The latest wave of terrorist attacks in the West stems directly from Western military action in the Middle East from at least 1991 with the US-led First Gulf War, and culminating in the Invasion and destruction of the sovereign governments of Afghanistan and Iraq around a decade later. This situation has been compounded by the NATO-led invasion and destruction of the sovereign government of Libya, and the attempted destruction of Syria, as well as the Western-backed coup in Egypt, etc. All this Western military aggression in the Middle East has been reflected in Israel’s continuous and intensified brutality against the Palestinian population.

As a Marxist-Leninist, I do not promote or support terrorism. Within the theoretical thinking associated with Scientific Socialism, terrorism is not accepted as a legitimate means to transform a capitalist society into a Socialist society. The Communist Party of Britain (CPB), for example, advocates the ‘peaceful’ transition of the UK into a Socialist State through through the democratic process at the ballet box. Terrorism only hurts the Working Class, because invariably the Workers are over-whelming the victims of it, but terrorism achieves nothing for a ‘consented’ social transformation. This is why Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and virtually every other Communist leader (despite false propaganda to the contrary), rejected it as a means to make Revolution. On the other hand, Marx wrote that the Working Class has a right to ‘collectively’ protect itself, which can be seen as manifested in Britain’s stance against Nazi Germany in WWII, and the Soviet Union’s confrontation of the same fascist foe. This legitimate self-defence is not ‘terrorism’, but a means of collectively ‘protecting’ the country from a destructive and external terrorist threat.

A contemporary issue in the UK, stems from the UK government’s unwillingness to truthfully assess exactly ‘why’ it is that fanatic Islamo-fascist groups are targeting Britain (and other European countries), and why various rightwing (and occasionally ‘Christian’) groups originating within the UK, are resorting to ‘murder’ to make their political point? British foreign policy – which has seen quite literally hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions) of innocent Middle Eastern people killed by Western military action since 1991. An interesting question is how would British or American people react if their countries were over-run and militarily destroyed by a rampant and all dominating ‘foreign’ force? A foreign force that viewed everything it did as being politically, morally, legally and religiously ‘correct’, whilst its armed forces killed with impunity, often ‘demeaning’ their victims in the process. In the case of the US, a historical answer is readily available. During the War of Independence in the later part of the 18th century, where renegade British Citizens (and their non-British allies), conspired to over-throw the legitimate UK governance of the British Colonies in the Americas. How was this essentially bourgeois ‘Revolution’ to take place? The ‘American’ rebels resorted to armed terrorism against the legitimate British Authorities. This terrorism evolved into a legitimate military movement that was eventually able to field a conventional army (albeit often using ‘unconventional’ methods and tactics), that confronted the British Army. American terrorism advocated the arming of civil society – an idea (and action) that was ‘illegal’ in the UK, and which had been so for hundreds of years. Americans that supported the British were often attacked and killed in broad daylight, and their businesses boycotted and destroyed. So bad was this American use of ‘terrorism’, that the British Authorities decided to ‘free’ any African slave that pledged allegiance to the UK cause – even creating ‘Black’ regiments in the British Army! As this ‘American’ rebellion eventually ‘won’ its fight, the entire affair was viewed through the history as established by the victors. In this history, all the acts of brutal murder and oppression committed by the American rebels are presented as legitimate acts of ‘freedom fighting’. Ironically today, virtually no one in the US (of any ethnic origin), associates the US use of terrorism against the British in the 18th century, with the Middle Eastern terrorism of the 20th and 21st centuries against the UK and the USA. Of course, this is partly a ‘racist’ response that views everything ‘White’ as being superior to everything ‘non-White’, etc.

As matters stand, the UK government responds to terrorist acts not with education, reconciliation, reform and peace-making, but rather uses the ‘threat’ of terrorism as a means to  ‘take away’ our civil liberties. Instead of confronting the ‘actual’ or ‘real’ reasons why terrorism happens, our civil liberties are removed as a means to make it harder for any potential terrorist to commit a violent act. It is obvious that this policy does not work, as terrorists always strike where least expected. In the meantime, the ordinary people of Britain are continuously punished everyday by having their age-old freedoms curtailed and removed as a ‘response’ to terrorism. Surely this is nothing short of allowing the terrorists to alter our way of life, and in a very real sense, is handing these very same terrorists a moral and practical victory. It would be better to ‘strengthen’ and not ‘weaken’ or civil liberties, and for the UK government to ‘change’ the way it behaves overseas, by disassociating its activities from the current alignment with contemporary US neo-imperialist foreign policy. If the UK does not carry-out the actions that attracts a terrorist response – the chances of a terrorist attack would reduce. Furthermore, if the UK pursued a policy of making amends throughout the world by following a compassionate and wise agenda, the chances of a terrorist attack would disappear altogether.

DPRK: Is Kim Jong Un Giving-Up the Hereditary System and Rejoining the ‘Communist’ Camp?

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

(Research & Translation by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Translator’s Note: Although the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ were apparently ‘removed’ from official documents in the DPRK a number of years ago, this did not mean that North Korea abandoned its Socialist or progressive institutions or establishments. On the contrary, the DPRK carried-on building Socialism and striving to establish Communism by looking after its people and providing for all their educational and material needs.  The idea that the removal of these two terms on paper equated with the abandonment of Marxist-Leninism in practice, is an error of interpretation. The only issue of note is that of the ‘heredity’ system in North Korea, and the dominance of that country’s government by a single branch of the ‘Kim’ family – but this is a matter for the North Korean people and no one else. Finally, although China is attempting to remove US and South Korean aggression against North Korea (by calling upon all sides to exercise restraint and arms control), nevertheless, articles within the Chinese press make it blatantly clear that China will come to the aid of North Korea should the West attack it. ACW (8.7.2017)

In May of this year (2016), the DPRK’s Workers’ Party will hold its 7th National People’s Congress.  It is thought that during this 7th Congress, the term ‘Communism’ will be re-written into the DPRK’s Constitution, or that slogans using the term will be used throughout the DPRK. In fact, with around a month before the 7th Congress begins, the DPRK Workers’ News publication has increased the intensity of its coverage, with Editorials including the word ‘Communism’! A typical example reads:

‘Military and civilian workers in the DPRK are striving together to build a Bright New Dawn and a Great Shining Path as a means of establishing ‘Communist’ civilisation in the country!’

The term ‘Communism’ has not appeared in the North Korean media for a long time. In April, 2009, the Supreme People’s Assembly (held in North Korea) decided to remove the term ‘Communism’ from the Constitution. Then in June, 2014 (after 39 years of ideological consistency) altered the Guiding Principles of the Constitution and the Workers’ Party Guiding Regulations for the first time, stating that ‘the only way to establish the DPRK Workers’ Party’s Ten Principles’, is only through the ‘Baishou Mountain Descent’ System – whereby Kim Jong Un’s regime was confirmed as being purely ‘hereditary’ in nature.

With the abandonment of the terms ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the movement away from the ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ – and the ‘Communist’ vision followed by Kim Il Song and Kim Jong Il – North Korea has become a de facto ‘Dynasty State’. This seems to suggest that Kim Jong Un’s rule is now viewed as more important than that of his ancestors, and that the Marxist-Leninist basis of revolution and workers’ struggle has been side-lined, or relegated as less important.

When North Korea followed the ‘Communist’ path, it was very much viewed as a hermit country with little interest in the outside world. With the abandonment of ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’, and the establishment of Kim Jong Un’s rule, the DPRK has become very active on the international stage, and has attracted unwanted and unwarranted attention from the capitalist West – particularly the US. Could it be the case that to remedy this, the DPRK is going to re-engage ‘Communism’, and abandon the Kim Family inheritance pathway?

The DPRK media has not used the term ‘Communism’for around 14 years – but its sudden re-emergence, it does appear that a change is coming. This is significant, as the DPRK has only held 6 previous Congresses in 1946, 1948, 1956, 1961, 1970 and 1980. The upcoming Congress will be the first in 36 years since the rule of Kim Sung Il!

放弃世袭! 金正恩考虑重投“共产主义”阵营

发表于 2016-04-11 22:27:04|
导读: 朝鲜将于今年5月召开劳动党第七次全国代表大会。有观点认为,“共产主义”一词有可能会在本次七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
距离朝鲜劳动党第七次全国代表大会还剩大约一个月时间。朝鲜媒体已经展开了如火如荼的造势活动,以迎接这个重要场合。与此同时,有一个词也意外出现在宣传内容里——“共产主义”。朝鲜《劳动新闻》7日刊登的社论中写道,
“军人建设者和人民要将黎明大街建设成为符合文明国家面貌的共产主义理想大街。“
“共产主义”一词已好久没有出现在朝鲜媒体上。2009年4月,朝鲜召开的最高人民会议,决定从宪法中删除“共产主义”一词。2014年6月,朝鲜时隔39年首次修改规范力度高于宪法和劳动党章程的《树立党的唯一思想体系十大原则》,明文规定了“白头山血统”—金正恩一家的政权世袭制。
朝鲜毅然摒弃“共产主义”,无异于向全世界宣布朝鲜进入“王朝国家”。更为重要的是“共产主义”一词消失,代替的是“金日成和金正日主义”;同时删除了“无产阶级专政”。将原来“为完成社会主义、共产主义伟业而斗争”的部分修改为“为完成主体革命伟业而斗争”。这就意味着比起共产主义理念,金氏一家唯一领导体系更为重要。
当年朝鲜去共产主义的行为并未引起世人轰动,毕竟所有人都心知肚明:朝鲜此举只不过是捅破了一层窗户纸罢了。然而,近来朝鲜官媒再次提及“共产主义”,不免令人浮想联翩。难道在金正恩领导下的朝鲜要回归共产主义,甚至放弃金氏家族世袭?
韩联社认为,朝鲜媒体近期开始提到已有14年未提的“共产主义”,或表明共产主义一词有可能会在本次朝鲜劳动党七大上重新写入宪法,或者朝鲜政府将提出与共产主义相关的口号。
朝鲜劳动党七大是朝鲜时隔36年再次召开全国党代会,上一次朝鲜召开党代会还要追溯到金日成主政时期的1980年。朝鲜劳动党在历史上共召开过六次全国代表大会,分别是在1946年、1948年、1956年、1961年、1970年和1980年。
