The Internationale Regional Message Board
Hello comrade red rose :) contact Comrade Misley :)
Look forward to the history project!
Welcome back, comrade! That's the spirit! We cannot standby while the Leftist community of NationStates suffers injustice and abuse such as this! You are right in saying that it is the responsibility of TRF and all comrade regions to protect and defend each other!
Again, I would like to urge all comrades to apply to the WA and The Red Fleet!
Thank you, comrade V Ming! I am proud to call North Korea a comrade region, and rest assured knowing that we can count on them to always do what's righteous and just!
I look forward to it, as well, comrade. I've been reading the RMB archive, and as of now I've read up to August 7th, 2011. Comrade Marxingrad did an excellent job recording what happened during that time, and I've seen very little that should be added or clarified. Hopefully we can get embassies with TI Historical Restoration Project opened soon, so our comrades can post there and contribute to this collaborative effort.
Socialism or Barbarism!
Neither one for me XD
Neither one for me XD
I am going to express my views, since that is what the leftist regions are all about. I advance that I highly respect anarchism and many other leftist ideologies since my particular one does not impede it.
I am leftist because I believe in the liberation of the working class: this is not subject to debate. Right-wing ideologies conceive the oppressor as the supreme master, giving him advantages assuming that progress will follow his infinite greed. This does not happen. Modern centrist ideologies are wielded on a capitalist scale and, therefore, these are right wing too from the vast majority of leftist points of view, where social democracy and mutualism would be seen as centre ideologies in a proletariat democracy.
I believe in four stages of social transition: revolution, proletarian dictatorship, proletarian democracy and communism. I consider revolution to be greatly inherent to socialism. The reasons behind it all consider the unwillingness of the bored upper class to release their firm grip on power, greed and corruption. Never has humanity seen so much propaganda in order to maintain a system as the current capitalist one, where (whether you distinguish it or not) it conditions novels, encyclopaedias, films, videogames and tradition. Where many people consider socialism as the abolishment of tradition, they might as well see that there is no other viable option to stop the tradition renewal. Capitalism is disposing of it as much as any other socialist ideology would do it, therefore invalidating this pseudo-argument against socialism and leftist development. Revolution clears the way for the people to hold the power, to fight for their own interest and ultimately, to break their chains. The bourgeois democracy will never allow their slaves to take the house.
The famous dictatorship of the proletariat is nothing else than a non-participative government with inner organisation whose ONLY intention should be to guarantee the reconstruction of society from the ashes of the capitalist barbarism. It is an unfortunately key step in the formation of a communist society and, in fact, the most difficult to contain problems and corruption within the party. It is because of this that it is also known as party socialism. Considering Stalin as a dictator, oppressing the people and capturing dissidents needs one key detail that the capitalist propaganda frequently omits: there was a war going on. As with any country during a war, democracy disappears entirely, leaving a charismatic character taking off and deciding about the future of the country. The USA also proceeded to jail, spy and oppress anyone who was even mildly left-leaning. Any democracy will become a de facto provisional dictatorship. Pursuing the working class' intentions was fairly complicated during the 20th Century and this should be taken into account whenever similar politics are analysed. This does NOT mean to forget the GULAGs and other similar happenings, but just to position them in the context of the Cold War and the national problems.
The proletarian democracy, the next stage, would encompass a series of clear elections with leftist candidates along with an exhaustive citizen participation in day-to-day politics. Once the new society built itself during the previous decades, the new open governmental system allows the worker to experience a democracy that cares for his well-being and instigates development accordingly. Eventually, the direct participation of every citizen in the political issues (just like you do here in NationStates) would end in communism: a system where there is both the state and the absence of it, since the state are the citizens and the citizens are the state.
Stalin also killed Jewish antifascists and anarchists, none of which were his enemy. The same goes for propaganda on both sides, I would say capitalists and stalinists have omitted quite a bit.
