This 7th of November 2017, we celebrate the hundred years of the October revolution, which in 1917 led Russia to socialism, through an armed insurrection followed by a civil war between the red and the white armies.

We say that this path is still valid today ; in each capitalist country, a revolutionary upsurge must be led by the avant-guard revolutionary party, mobilizing the masses so that they take the power in destroying the old state in a necessary violent way...

There is never no reason for any capitulation – the struggle continues until victory ! For this reason, we wish to stress here the historical signification of the murders of Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin and Jan-Carl Raspe, political prisoners of the Red Army Fraction, in the night of the 17th of October, 1977. Those murders form a major political event in the frame of the struggle between revolution and counter-revolution in the imperialist metropoles.

This May 1, 2017 is marked by the historical strengthening of the tendency to imperialist war. Each camp polishes its weapons, strengthens its capacity for action, promotes nationalism.

The United Kingdom tumbles to the exit of the European Union with the Brexit; in India, Narendra Modi organizes a regime in which Hinduism turns to fanaticism.

In the United States, it is Donald Trump, that coarse, narrow billionaire who took the lead ; in Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has reinforced, in a generalized manner, his prerogatives as president relying on religion...

Hundred years ago, Marcel Duchamp opened symbolically a whole new epoch. It was the end, on the side of the bourgeoisie, of any pretension of rationalism, objectivity, of objectivism in the sense of the representation of an object.

Alongside the tremendous raise of the productive forces, the bourgeoisie definitely dropped any sense of realism, universalism, collectivism, as those values were now the substance of a strong working class.

Next year, all the genuine revolutionaries in the world shall hail the October Revolution, the seizure of power in Russia in 1917. With the great Lenin at the head of the “Bolsheviks” forming the majority of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party, the revolutionaries were able to overthrow the reactionary state and establish Socialism.

As Communists following the path of 1917, we want to profit from this hundred anniversary coming to point out a very important aspect of the October Revolution : the question of the direction, i.e. the importance of Lenin...

This book was written in the period preceding the Russian Revolution, during the slight lull that set in after the outbreak of the big strikes of 1895-1896.

Since the development of Scientific Socialism by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, a very important topic was the question of the nature of the dictatorship of the proletariat. Let's remember here what is said in the letter to Joseph Weydemeyer, dated March 5, 1852, where Karl Marx explains his contribution in the following manner :

“And now as to myself, no credit is due to me for discovering the existence of classes in modern society or the struggle between them. Long before me, bourgeois historians had described the historical development of this struggle between the classes, as had bourgeois economists their economic anatomy...

Dialectical materialism and living matter

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

Matter goes to Communism : this is the very ideological core of dialectical materialism. As matter – which is infinite and eternal – moves without any stop and in the form of a spiral, through dialectical leaps - it progresses more and more in terms of complexity and organization.

About 158 people were killed, hundred others wounded, in a series of armed attacks against bars and a concert hall, with three bombings in the area of a football stadium, all of this in the name of religion, with several kamikazes : this is not understandable in our country having made a democratic revolution...

Post-Modernism has nothing to do with dialectical materialism. Dialectical materialism is a science, produced by theoreticians, carried by ideological movements and states, based on concepts very well defined. Post-modernism is an ideology born in the French and US universities, promoting “deconstruction” as the path of “total liberation”.

This concept of “deconstruction” can already be found in the 1920's-1930's, with the artistic avant-gardes: surrealism in France, cubism in Czechoslovakia, futurism in Russia, all pretending to be artistic and psychological aspects of a “total” revolution that the working class should do...

Nostalgia according dialectical materialism

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

What is nostalgia? It is an important question, because it is a very common feeling. In fact, we should say that it is a very common feeling in the non-communist society. Why that? Because nostalgia is rooted in the non-understanding of a contradiction. The lack of synthesis brought a situation where the contradiction was not resolved in a progressive manner. Because of this, there is a “skeleton in the closet”.

If we take the example of love, or romance, we can see that the reasons for the failure were thoughts like “he has not enough money”, “she's not beautiful enough”, “better safe than sorry”, “to flee happiness by fear that it runs away”, etc.

Opportunism can exist, but can't obliterate the human reality. And the brain is here like a non rewritable CD. Once it is written, nothing can be erased. But what is in the brain can be overstepped, through a process of synthesis. For this reason, “mad people” need to work, to transform; it is only in transforming reality that they will understand the process of transformation, and also transform themselves...

Without dialectical materialism, idealism prevails. For some Israel is the “only democratic state in the Middle East”, for others it is only a “Zionist entity”. Some others talk also from the “Israeli imperialism”, and anyway we can easily find anti-Semitic conceptions, seeing Israel as manipulating the others regimes in the world, controlling the USA, practising “Nazi like” genocides, etc.

All of this is basically the same position as Eugen Dühring's one, seeing “the Jews”, and here Israel, as inhuman, forming a special category, etc. According dialectical materialism, on the other side, there is no “special category”. Islamist, Christian fascist, Jewish nationalist ideologies and Anti-Semitism can get hysterical and irrational with this question, because of its “special” character. This is not the position of materialism.

So, what is Israel according dialectical materialism? In fact, there are only two solutions: either is Israel an imperialist country, or it is semi-colonial semi-feudal...

The leap was unable to be satisfy the expectations of the Communist Party. The main problem was the terrible weather conditions, with droughts and flooding on a terrible scale, making agricultural production fall by14% in 1959 and by 13% in 1960.

What happened to Indian capitalism? In fact, it already had an extremely developed ideology: Jainism. But Karl Marx could not see that, for two reasons. Firstly, Jainism was less known, not to say unknown, as it still is today in fact. Secondly, Karl Marx knew an advanced form of capitalist ideology, and Jainism was “democratic” in a very elementary form.

The ideological vigour of Hinduism led the feudal forces of the south to join Hinduism, through the integration of the feudal lords into the kshatriya caste and the instruction of priests, and a whole history was “written” about all this, to connect it with northern culture.

The situation of materialism in ancient India was untenable. Materialism's two possible directions were blocked by either Hinduism or Buddhism.

Materialism had to overcome two hurdles. The first difficulty was to state that there is no soul, that only the body exists and therefore that humans do not “think”: there is only matter.

Karl Marx didn't know Buddhism and its role in India, so he thought that Hinduism had always been the dominant form and that the worship of nature was an element of it, when in fact it was an animist component of the indigenous colonized people and a peaceful component of Buddhism as a civilized and urban ideology.

The triumph of Hinduism over Buddhism took centuries. Even after the reorganization of Brahmanism into its new “Hinduist” form, Buddhism initially kept its positions in ancient India, and 3000 preachers were even sent to China, where Buddhism soon became the state religion.

The organization of Brahmanism as a “mixture” of the traditional religion of the Aryans and of local forms of animism in ancient India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, allowed the development of a feudal base leaning towards a slave system.

In ancient Greece, the slave system allowed the production of intellectuals, who had time and wealth to dedicate their activity to knowledge, to science.

In the French army, the massive support for the "quenelle" [a legal semi Nazi salute] movement initiated by comedian Dieudonné is paving the way for future fascist mass mobilization.

Dialectical materialism recognizes homosexuality as a natural phenomenon, concerning a tiny part of the population, and it considers that there is nothing anti-social or counter-productive...

The historical strategic document of the Red Army Faction, in 1982. "The revolutionary strategy here is very simply a strategy against their strategy.
Whoever attacks their strategic plans or their concrete projects, whoever breaks the imperialist offensive in its internal or external orientation and whoever does so creates the consciousness that becomes the new resistance"...

"The electron is as inexhaustible as the atom, nature is infinite, but it infinitely exists. And it is this sole categorical, this sole unconditional recognition of nature’s existence outside the mind and perception of man that distinguishes dialectical materialism from relativist agnosticism and idealism."

CPMLM on homosexuality

The dignity of reality teaches us that a minority of human beings is sexually attracted to the persons of the same sex – that is the sense of the word “homosexual”. This is a reality that can be denied and that must be respected.

Avicenna and Averroes: Giorgione's three philosophers

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

Giorgione (1478 – 1510) was a great painter, as a Venetian Renaissance master, he produced a work that socialism will recognize as one the most important painting: the “three philosophers”. The painting depicts indeed, as the title says, three philosophers - among them, Averroes - and describes three stages: the Greek philosophy, that began science. The Arab-Persian culture, that continued it. And then Renaissance, that was continuing the process.

A look about what took place in Ecuador those last weeks. In this country, there is not even a bourgeois law against animal abuse in general. But a spark produced a wave of fire, with a scandal: dogs are used in military instruction. The pictures of soldiers holding a decapitated dog produced a strong moral reaction – a reaction that, for us, belongs to the people.

The problem of the old Greek materialism is that the universe was static, it has no movement, reality could not be observed and studied, because matter was all but had no movement, no sense itself. Whereas with Aristotelianism, universe is moving, even if only in circles, in a repetitive manner. So, it is possible to understand this.

Avicenna and Averroes went further than that. They push Aristotle's logic to a peak. As there was a primary cause to everything, then logically randomness became an impossibility. The door was open to understand the world as a whole system.

Is Merah “M” ?

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

“M”, a German movie directed by Fritz Lang, is what is called a « classical. » Let's see about a parallel that could be made with Merah. And let's see: Merah is not “M”; no “M” exists. Madness does not exist according to dialectical materialism: a “strange” thought is always the result of a material process, a product of society and nature.

The sense of Gonzalo's poetical prose

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

Let's see here some important points about Gonzalo Thought. The first point is the origin of the poetical prose used by Gonzalo. It is here not a question of style; using poetical prose, he wanted to show that what he says, his mind, is a product of the movement of matter, not a product of his mind alone.

The second point is the subjectivist understanding of Gonzalo Thought, that brought a lot of problems on the practical level.

We saw that the conquest of space was theorized by Tsiolkovsky (see Life, Matter, the Universe, part 4: Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, from the Biosphere to the Milky Way)) and that it was an important part of the communist conception of the universe. Unfortunately, it is the revisionists in the USSR who have benefited from these efforts; Tsiolkovsky itself will die long before the introduction of rockets he had planned.

And where some posters of the conquest of space are amazing, it is that they reflect the initial communist view, revisionism appropriating itself the “technical” prestige, but havint not yet completely erased, the cultural, ideological value of space exploration for communism.

editorial of foundation #1

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)

“Foundation” is the expression of our understanding in France of dialectical materialism; it exists in two versions: a French one, an English one. The articles are a selection of the Milky Way website (voie-lactee.fr) and defend the point of view of the Communist Party Marxist Leninist Maoist, that can be resumed in “Nothing is indivisible”.
 “Nothing is indivisible” is the foundation of our ideology, dialectical materialism. An ideology that made the Russian and the Chinese revolutions, that promotes all over the world the emancipation of the oppressed masses. But also an ideology that is purely scientific, founded not on desires or wills, but on the dialectical movement of matter itself.

Submitted by Anonyme (non vérifié)
Red Star is organ of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist), an organization upholding Marxism-leninism and Mao Zedong, but rejecting Maoism and the Communist Party of India (Maoist).
The CPI(ML) is one of the important organizations of ICOR (International Coordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organizations), an “International” build around the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany, violently anti-Maoist.
In number 26 – March 2012 of Red Star, one can read an article entitled “Our differences with the Maoist Trend: Genesis and Present Contradiction”. This article is an open aggression of the CPI(Maoist), but not only: it also attacks Maoists in imperialist countries.

So, what are thoughts? Thought is a sense. Thoughts are, like senses, matter connected to matter. Thought is a very high development of matter interconnected; the mind is the place where the movement of matter is reflected, through gray matter. Spinoza and La Mettrie were right, as materialists, to conceive the human body as a natural machine.

Mao Zedong understood that if dialectics is universal, then it is correct to understand the macro-world and the micro-world themselves as dialectical process... Then the origin of life, exactly like the structure of elementary particles, must be understood also as dialectical process....

And so, there is nothing that is indivisible... Each time, scientists come to another layer, like if the universe was an infinite onion.

Our great leader Chairman Mao points out: "All things invariably divide into two." "The law of contradiction in things, that is, the law of the unity of opposites, is the basic law of materialist dialectics." (On Contradiction.)

This scientific thesis of Chairman Mao's profoundly expresses the objective law of things and penetratingly expounds the core of materialist dialectics.

Political economy is very extremely precise concerning the definition of a country. The development of the productive forces of the countries of the world is not uniform, it is not balanced; for this reason, some countries are more advanced than others, and differences exist among them.

http://lesmaterialistes.com/english/question-bengali-nation-splitThe question of Bengal is a case that is very near from the German question, the German countries splitting in two nations: Germany and Austria. Basically, in history Bengal was cut in two parts, sharing the same language, but divided in what concerns the main ideology, which was, at this feudal time, religion.
Because of this and following the Marxist definition of nation, the separation of West and East Bengal is more near to the Germany/Austria split than to the West/East Germany separation of 1945-1989.
Let's see here how did the Bengali people evolve.

According to dialectical materialism, living systems i.e. biological systems are directly issued from chemical systems, and are still chemical systems. Their movement corresponds to the movement of matter – and so, the question is: why does that kind of movement exist? As dialectical materialists, the question “why does it exist?” is the same as “How does it exist?”, because following the law of transformation, what exists is a logical conclusion of a process; there is no matter that transforms itself “by chance.”

24 déc 2011

For us dialectical materialists, asking what is life is finding the origin of all living cells from non-living matter. Life is matter in movement, it is “just” a highly developed form of matter in movement.

There are no basic differences, at the chemical levels, between “dead” matter and “living” matter. Of course, the dignity of reality makes that we must morally make a difference, what bourgeois thinking is unable to do, with all its animal experiments.
But to understand the process that makes life appear, it is not possible to put a Chinese wall between “dead” matter and “living” matter.

The revisionists: a tradition of copying and faking

It seems that revisionist are so bad in political economy that they are not able to formulate even a joint statement about the murder of the indian maoist leader Koteshwar Rao alias Kishenji.
As we can see here in a easy manner, the « joint statement » promoted by the revisionists calling themselves “Maoists” is on many points a direct copy of the joint statement made by the PCMLM of France and the Proletarian Party of East Bengal (Maoist Unity Group)/Bangladesh.
What a shame! What a shame to copy a statement of others organizations to express sadness ! What a total lack of dignity ! What an opportunism !

We communists are partisan of Einstein (and of general relativity), and not of quantum mechanics, scientific vision that is the mirror of the bourgeoisie’s intellectual conception.
If understanding all the details of this ideological conflict is most of the time difficult, it is indeed very easy to understand the issue : on one side, there is the synthetic vision, that considers that the movement of matter is organized (and understandable), and on the other, there is the statistical reading of the world, founded on a separated vision of « individuals. »

Everyone feels that we are on the eve of even tougher confrontations with power.

This is true: the workers’ struggle against the bosses’ dictatorship is more lively than ever.

And in the background of each struggle there is an even stronger consciousness of the antagonism between the proletariat and capitalist authority. This is the most tangible result and conquest of May.

The monetary crisis of November powerfully contributed to revealing the weakness of the adversary.

In the imperialist centers, everything is monitored and calmed down, neutralized by the pressure put on the masses in order to isolate the revolutionnaries; the organizations having upholded that "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" have been hunted down and annihilated, militarily and ideologically, in a very accurate way in order to avoid any spreading.
