The Internationale Regional Message Board

The Confederacy of Cartanacia wrote:Okay, but even if the personality cult arises organically because of those gaps, I would say that it's still the government's responsibility to correct those misconceptions and that my original argument about North Korean reelections of their leader being unfair is still valid. Also, defectors attest to being taught falsehoods in school, so I don't see how the state isn't complicit in creating the cult of personality.


I fully agree that the use of a cult of personality as demonstrated by the Kims is counter-intuitive to the revolutionary spirit. For the leader of the state to venerate himself openly and demand such veneration is nothing less than egotistical mania.

I am however not against the establishment of civil religion for the sake of national unity. Humanity has had a calling for veneration of the metaphysical and as much as that is a civilizational opiate, I think it's wise for the state to implement religion in regards to the proletariat ideology and famous leaders. Veneration in respect to ideological and national leaders such as Marx, Lenin, the late Kim Il-Sung, Robespierre, etc.
"Proletariat Hero Worship" might not be far off from my thoughts but with it's ritualism based on the teachings in their literature and aspiration to re-enact their accomplishments. Deist philosophy such as that by the Cult Of The Supreme Being can be implemented with a emphasis on attaining virtue through reason and understanding and personal enlightenment that can be achieved by the success of the collective establishment of a harmonious communist state. Mythological tales and impacts of the soul I think are unnecessary, as we can only discern things from what has truly occurred from historical record and that an afterlife is more of a fantastical mystery if anything, but nothing to fear.

Of course, I think civic religion should not be an end in of itself so much as it would try to rehabilitate human civilization from the ignorance of millenia year old organized and propagated mythology. Atheist theology based on reason and emperical facts should be embraced, but that doesn't mean we should outlaw religion outright. You don't fix a lifelong drug junkie by simply taking away his fix.

I think moreover that should reinforce my point that all people should be revered post-humously if at all. It takes one generation of leadership for someone to go off the deep end and declare themselves a god-king. Let the leaders and the party's philosophers commit their deeds and after their death, let the people decide whether they are worthy of veneration.

Can someone give me one more WA endorsement?

Last I heard the CNT membership was around 40,000 or so, but that was a couple years ago. Ive heard rumors recently, tho, from comrades in SolFed and WSA that there was a bit of an organizational shakeup during the IWA congress last December, and that the FAU has been expelled, and possibly some of the local sections of the CNT were expelled or left as well. These are only rumors tho. I used to be in the WSA, a US org with ties to the IWA, but i'm not anymore, so I i dont have the kind of intel on internal IWA business that I used to. If someone here with more knowledge could corroborate this info, I'd appreciate it.

To join the WA, you receive a mail that you have to click. Thus, 10minutemail, which is pretty useful generally, has no use here.


And what exactly should be the problem? I used 10minutemail to register for several sites, which required mail confirmation, and there was no problem...

Good evening all. On the behalf of the people of Isapito I would like to formally and warmly greet all the peoples of this region.

Hmm... 40,000 members down from 700,000 at their height! So sad that Franco did a good job cutting the head off of the blossoming Spanish libertarian left. Hopefully we will see them grow even stronger later and continue what they started back in the 30s. La lucha continúa! Viva la CNT-FAI!

They were at 700,000 in 1919. During the latter half of 1936, after the outbreak of the civil war, the CNT peaked at somewhere around 1.6-1.8 million. But yeah, with the organization being outlawed under Franco until 1975, they took a serious hit. They surged back into life after his death, but in 1989 the organization split, with the greater portion forming the CGT, which is still anarcho-syndicalist, and, last I heard, has a membership of about 60,000, but it is not a member of the IWA.

My bad. I have been using 10minutemail for quite some time now, but for a reason, I had no idea that it could also be used to confirm your email.

No, I live in the USA. I've just spent a lot of time studying anarchist history and contemporary anarchist organization and activity. Ive also been a member of several anarchist organizations and have travelled around a lot, attending protests, conferences, and other events, so I've had the opportunity to read a lot of reports, dispatches, and communiques from various organizations, and to meet and talk to comrades from all over the world.
