The Communist Party of NationStates Regional Message Board

Jazz Commies and Sexy Astrophysicists wrote:With the fall of Das Kommune, I must encourage all member nations here in the region to maintain activity as much as they can.

In this same vein, something I've been thinking of in the past few days: what should religion's role in a marxist society be?


DK hasn't fallen comrade, it just ceased ties with NK. But I agree, this region should not and cannot go the way of DK.

On your question, I think we may have slightly divergent views on this, but I am very keen to hear your thoughts.

I tend to personally view religion as somewhat incompatible with a Marxist society and for the progression of society in general. Marx very famously called religion 'the opium of the people' in the context that religion was as a symptom of an inherently unfair economic system and something that the masses could look to as a source of comfort until such time as capitalism was done away with. The bourgeois also use religion as a way to maintain legitimacy and keep the status quo, once capitalism has been removed, I don't see a reason for religion to exist.

I fully agree with the view of Marx that religion is a symptom and not a disease and I should preface that I am an atheist and I accept others who are religious and would never try to sway their belief or diminish their beliefs either. Notwithstanding, I feel that religion has far too much influence on secular society. As an example, in Australia the government has asked the public to tell it if they should legalise same sex marriage. There are 'yes' and 'no' campaigns, with the religious leading the 'no' campaign. Organised religion in Australia has thrown bucket loads of money at propaganda ridiculously linking same sex marriage to all sorts of things such as bestiality, incest, removal of parental rights and 'advancing the homosexual agenda towards children'... All to support the view not to change 'holy' matrimony, despite the fact that it is a secular 'contract' between the couple and the state.

This is the reason why I see it as incompatible, it is attempting to impose it's belief on a secular society and on that basis and theoretically it is subversive to a Marxist society and just another tool in the arsenal of the bourgeois to keep the masses oppressed.

In practice if people wish to privately believe in a religion, all power to them. But in any society (not just a marxist one) religion should be kept out of the way of progress and kept as a personal and private matter for individuals - any intrusion into society more generally or into the state would be highly subversive and should not be permitted.

Reijekstan, Jazz Commies and Sexy Astrophysicists, and Locasburg

As someone who is religious, I agree with what you've both said here. Religion has played far too great a role in civil society in the past. Allowing it to shape our morality is one thing, but attempting to force it on others is something quite different. In addition, it certainly does serve as a means of keeping people distracted; why change the world with a "heavenly kingdom" awaiting you in the afterlife.

With the development of a Marxist society, I think it would be only logical to assume that irreligious numbers would increase. I take no issue with this, as I don't believe religion and morality always share the same relationship. As Vostrikovia said, I think the best outcome is private citizens practicing their faith in a way that they do not attempt to influence others.

Overall, I firmly believe my beliefs as a Marxist are fueled and informed by my faith as a Jew. We must build the best world possible, using the tools of love and justice in equal measure. I firmly believe the tenants of not just Judaism, but most other faiths, would be compatible with living in a Marxist society. It is only with organized religions, such as Catholicism or the former Buddhist state of Tibet, that I see issues possibly arising.

Vostrikovia and Locasburg

Can something tell me what is happening in Das Kommune? They kicked everyone out and then locked the region, but it wasn't raided.

Das Kommunes been dead for 2 years it's just the founder on a power trip. They even kicked Proletaire out [Giebon 8]. Anyway you guys have fun I'm out

Jazz Commies and Sexy Astrophysicists wrote:it is dangerous to relish the idea of torturing and killing one's opponents. Vostrikovia is saying.


Torture? That's messed up man. I was being sarcastic messing about hanging and gulags but torture is Trump tactics, I'm not down with that.

Contrary to Nosferati, the founder is not 'on a power trip', I am the last remaining original founder and I decided, in light of the NK'S decision to cease relations with CPNS, my loyalties rest with CPNS and DK had no place continuing to have an embassy with reactionary North Korea.

DK remains closed and it's history preserved and guarded by myself and Proletaire. I undertook a purge to identify it's remaining guardians earlier.

The region closed due to inactivity.

Nosferati was kicked out some time ago by the former founder of CPNS. Clearly that wasn't enough to discourage and subversive elements must be eliminated as soon as possible.

This is such a refreshing response from a religious comrade. I truly respect that your religious views have shaped your views as a Marxist. The basic fundamentals of most religion is grounded in mutual respect, love and justice, which can only serve to build a better world. It's just a shame that some of those religions have influenced the state with a narrow interpretation to impose certain (and often misconstrued) beliefs on the masses.

What are everyone here's thoughts on Xi Jinping, the current President of China and Core Leader of the Chinese Communist Party? I am personally very skeptical of anything involving China post Mao, but his recent talk of restoring China's socialist roots is promising to me.

I'm not exactly sure. I have a hunch that nothing will change.

I'm as sceptical as you. I'm not sure Xi Jinping is entirely committed to the cause, him saying that what the Chinese government is doing is "building socialism" with a Chinese spin just screams similarities of North Korea building socialism with a North Korean flare (Juche) - both of which resemble socialism in theory only. in practice, tell that to the average Chinese worker who remains employed in appalling conditions to allow the capitalist class within and outside of China to continue to make huge profits off of their exploitation.

I think Xi Jinping is simply paying lip service to the party to keep the status quo. Although we can always hold out hope, socialism In Asia is fascinating.
